[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As I stood there in the hall, unsure what to say, what seemed like the entire smackdown roster began to surround us, even some of the Raw superstars who were there gathered round.

||# Hardcore #||
See, we’re not about to let you leave us. So turn that sweet little ass of yours around.

*~* me *~*
I’m sorry but I have to, Chris, Eddie, Christian, Rey you guys are up next you should really be heading down to the gorilla.

||# Benoit #||
We’re not wrestling, not till we know that you’re staying.

||& Rey &||
They’ll just have to go on without us.

||% Eddie %||
Yup, cause without you there is no show.

*~* me *~*
Guys, come on stop being ridiculous, you’re going to get in trouble.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then Teddy walks up to the crowd.

||@ GM Long @||
What’s going on here? Why aren’t you guys down in the gorilla, you’re up next.

*~* me *~*
Nothings going on Teddy, everyone is just being stupid.

||% Eddie %||
Teddy how can you just stand there and let her go?

||@ GM Long @||
Playa I don’t control Tammi, she is a grown woman, and if she feels as if this best for her, I can’t stop her. Sure she’ll be missed, for she was the best assistant I’ve ever had, but if she’s not happy here, I don’t want to be selfish and try and make her stay just because I’ll miss her.

||$ Vince $||
WHAT IN HELL IS HOLDING UP MY MAIN EVENT?!?! TEDDY WHAT KIND OF SHOW ARE YOU RUNNING, WHY IS THE MAIN EVENT NOT HAPPENING? **Vince said storming up to all of us**

||% Eddie %||
We’re not fighting unless Tammi agrees to stay.

||# Benoit #||
That goes for all of us here.

||$ Vince $||
**Vince looks at me** So you’re organizing a strike against me?

*~* me *~*
No, I was just trying to leave quietly, unnoticed, but Christy ran into me and well.. I told them that they should be heading down to the gorilla.

||& Rey &||
We’re serious Tammi, we’re not wrestling unless you agree to stay.

*~* me *~*
I can’t stay with things like this **I say glancing over at Vince**

||$ Vince $||
What do I have to do to make you stay darling? I’ll do anything, just get everyone back to work.

*~* me *~*
You stay out of my personal life for one thing. Another **I say turning to Teddy** Audra and I get treated the same and …

||$ Vince $||
Anything darling anything. Just say you’ll stay so that they’ll wrestle, the crowd is bound to be restless by now.

*~* me *~*
Okaes, I’ll stay. But we have other things that need to be discussed and agreed upon , but for now I’ll stay.

||@ GM Long @||
Good, now you heard her, get your asses down to the ring!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Everyone disbanded and Teddy, Vince, and I headed back to Teddy’s office. The three of us sat there and talked over some of my other demands, which was readily agreed upon. Such as I would no longer have to be apart of the room draft and would get a suite to myself and that I’d get three months paid maternity leave. Also, I wanted randy to main event some of the next couple of shows, as well as one of the next couple ppvs, and have him have the title by wrestlemania, and most importantly of all that he must never know that it was me behind this push. Those were some of the things agreed upon, as well as what was said in the hall and other things. The show ended as Teddy, Vince and I were finishing our agreement, randy knocked on the office door, he was wearing his ring attire from having faced Roddy Piper earlier in the night.

||% Randy %||
Umm excuse me, I was just wondering if I could talk to Tammi for a moment, alone.

||$ Vince $||
Oh sure sure **Vince said as him and teddy got up and left the office.**

||% Randy %||
Babe **he said taking a seat next to me on the couch** I just wanted to see if, well since you’ve reconsidered leaving the WWE, if maybe you’ve given more thought into not annulling our marriage, because like I said I promise I won’t hurt you anymore.

*~* me *~*
Rand, **I say looking him in the eyes** you need to concentrate on your wrestling career, not me.

||% Randy %||
That’s not true, **he says pulling me into his arms and kissing me**

*~* me *~*
**I pull back, breaking from the embrace, gasping for air from the kiss** Randy you don’t need me or this baby tying you down, you’re a star on the rise you don’t need excess baggage weighing you down.

||% Randy %||
**he pulls me back into another kiss and than looks me in the eyes** You and this baby **he says putting one of his huge hands over my stomach** are my life, I could care less if I hold another championship, if you’re not by my side enjoying it with me.

*~* me *~*
Rand…**I say placing my hands over his** oh heehee did you just…did you feel that?

||% Randy %||
Yeah, and there it is again.

*~* me *~*
Oh god, this is so cool.

||% Randy %||
You mean that was our baby’s first kick?

*~* me *~*
heehe yeah… heehee lets just hope he doesn’t decide to super kick my bladder or kidneys or anything, cause he’s got some strength in those legs.

||% Randy %||
It’s a boy?

*~* me *~*
Huh? Why do you say that?

||% Randy %||
You just said he… is it a boy?

*~* me *~*
Oh I don’t know yet… I’m just hoping it’s a little boy… why?

||% Randy %||
Really.. I was kind of hoping for a little girl, that looked just like you. **he said kissing me again**

*~* me *~*
**I pull back and get up and walk over to the other side of the room** Rand.. we can’t do this.

||% Randy %||
Why not babe? We love each other, and we’re destined to be together, look or why else would we be married right now.

*~* me *~*
That’s not destiny, it’s Vince playing with our lives. Its like I wish that we could go back in time and be happy like we once were, but even then, how far would I have to go back, I don’t even know how far back I would have to go to when you weren’t cheating on me. Its like randy, the only way we could be together is if I trusted you, and frankly I don’t know if I can trust you with my heart. I need to go, I’ll see you at the house show on Thursday.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I grab my purse and walk out of the office, leaving Randy sitting there on the couch. I catch a cab back to the hotel and head up to the room. Benoit had just gotten out of the shower and was sitting on one of the beds in a bathrobe.

*~* me *~*
hi…

||# Benoit #||
Hey there… what are you doing here, I thought you would be with Randy.. I never would have thought that you would be spending your wedding night with me, but I’m glad that you are.

*~* me *~*
Why wouldn’t I be spending the night here? We’re rooming together after all, unless you don’t want me here and in that case I can see if there is a vacant room.

||# Benoit #||
No, no its not that I don’t want you here its just that I would have thought that like most brides you would be spending the night with the groom.

*~* me *~*
Oh Randy’s rooming with Audra, and besides I’d rather room with you.

||# Benoit #||
Hey Tammi, I know this may not be any of my business but why were you going to quit tonight?

*~* me *~*
Just some drama… its over with now. But it was totally sweet of you to threaten to strike for me, but yeah it was also very stupid of you. Vince could have fired you, and what would you have done then?

||# Benoit #||
I could have gone to New Japan pro wrestling… TNA… Ring of Honor.. there’s other federations out there, but there is only one of you, and you my dear are one of the best friends a person could ask for.

*~* me *~*
Aww Chris **I say climbing onto the bed and hugging him** You’re so sweet, but don’t ever do that again, I would feel horrible if I were the reason why you or any of the others got in trouble let alone fired

||# Benoit #||
Then just don’t leave us sweet cheeks and everything will be fine.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I got up and showered and changed into some sweats and climbed into bed and fell asleep. The next morning I awoke to find Chris was gone. So I ordered some room service and worked on some reports and read over some of the scripts Stephanie had sent over, as I sat there reading I couldn’t believe some of the lame stuff that they were going to do. Especially with the Boogeyman, I knew that he was Shane’s invention but still the boogeyman was absolutely stupid in my opinion. The guy who was playing him seemed nice but still, I kept my distance from him, because what I heard is that he wasn’t the type of guy that one would want to associate with according to Linda. After finishing my breakfast I washed up and changed into some jeans and a t-shirt and went downstairs to meet up with Taker, for the two of us were supposed to go sightseeing together. I met him down in the lobby and we took his truck and drove around a bit, that night at dinner flashbulbs went off and we caught some creepy looking guy taking pictures of us. Taker cased after him, but the guy got away. The next morning when I arrived at the arena for the house show, I saw a newspaper was spread out across my desk, I sat down and looked at it, opened right in front of me was a picture of Taker and me from last night under a huge headline that read Wrestling Superstar Randy Orton’s new bride having affair with arch rival the Undertaker. I sat there and rolled my eyes and closed the paper and got to work, when Teddy walked in.

||@ GM Long @||
Hey playa… I see you’re making the news here in Texas.

*~* me *~*
Shh yeah… **I rolled my eyes** I guess it’s a slow news day. How stupid… taker and I were just having dinner it wasn’t even romantic or anything like that at all, just two friends eating. It’s like he’s married to Sara for gods sake! I cant believe some people… errr I’m going to go check on Benoit I’ll be back later and will you get rid of that piece of trash for me please?

||@ GM Long @||
Aight Playa, catch ya later.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk down the hall and find Benoit in one of the locker rooms, he’s dressed in his ring attire and was stretching out.

*~* me *~*
Hey Chris, did you need me to help

||# Benoit #||
Loosen my back, yeah that’d be great. **he says lying down on the floor**

*~* me *~*
So who’s the lucky victim tonight? **I say as I slip off my heels and walk across his back**

||# Benoit #||
Booker and Christian, Orlando and I are teaming together…oooo that feels good. Do you think you could work out a kink I have in my shoulder?

*~* me *~*
Yeah sure no probem. **I say stepping off of him and sitting on his back straddling him massaging out his shoulder.**

||# Benoit #||
OOOOO Yeah that’s the spot! A little harder yeah that’s great. OoOoO

||% Randy %||
Hey Chris I was… oh… hey… Tammi babes… I was hoping to see you today. Did you give it anymore thought…

*~* me *~*
Umm not really… but yeah I gotta go. I hope that was okaes for you Chris, if you need me to work on it some more you can come find me. Bye Chris, Bye Rand **I quickly exit**

||% Randy %||
Sorry to interrupt and get your massage cut short

||# Benoit #||
It’s cool man, she got it loosened up enough, should be able to work through the match. So what’s up man.

||% Randy %||
I was just wondering.. youre rooming with Tammi right?

||# Benoit #||
Yeah, why?

||% Randy %||
I was wondering if you would be willing to switch rooms with me, so that I could room with Tammi, it would mean a lot to me. I’d really appreciate it man.

||# Benoit #||
I dunno man, I’d have to discuss it with Tammi first you know.

||% Randy %||
Awww come on Chris, it’ll be cool trust me. Its like if you were me, wouldn’t you want to spend a couple nights with your wife. It sucks ass that we’re in separate rooms, I mean spending your wedding night with some other girl, not to say Audra is a bad roommate or anything, its just that she’s not Tammi and id rather spend my nights cuddled up to Tammi than sleeping by myself across from someone else, if you know what I mean.

||# Benoit #||
I know what you mean, but still I’m gonna check with Tammi first. I’ll get back to you on that switch though. I have to head down to the ring later man.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The night wears on and I go over some of the reports, I hear a commotion going on outside. I rush out to see what it was, and see that someone is being wheeled on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance. I try to make my way to see who it was but the crowd of people was just too thick. The ambulance drives off and the crowd begins to disperse.

*~* me *~*
Hey Christy do you know who that was that was hurt or what happened?

||* Christy *||
Oh yeah it was Randy, he was fighting Batista and well Batista clotheslined him and well he fell and he didn’t get up. Refs couldn’t revive him, so they called for medics and an ambulance.

*~* me *~*
Oh my god! But he’s going to be okaes right?

||* Christy *||
I dunno, I’m sorry sweetie.

*~* me *~*
Um thanks Christy. Wait do you happen to know which hospital they took him to?

||* Christy *||
No sorry.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I run back into the office grab my purse stopping to scribble a note to Teddy saying that I went to go see Rand, sorry to leave I hope he understands. I rushed out and caught a cab and had him take me to the nearest hospital, and just my luck her wasn’t there, so I jumped in yet another cab and had them take me to another hospital, luckily he was at this one. I went up to the nurse at the front desk.

*~* me *~*
Excuse me, I’m looking for my husband, I’mnot sure what hospital he was brought to. His name is Randy Orton.

||* Nurse *||
Sure sweetie, you’re his wife, just like the other half dozen fans that have come in here.

*~* me *~*
No really I am, I need to know if he is alright. Would you please just let me see him

||* Nurse *||
yeah right toots,

*~* me *~*
I really am his wife, we got married a couple of days ago, right here in Texas! EERRr it’s like I’m carrying his child for gods sake! Oh proof proof what proof do I hae ** I say digging through my purse** see look here a picture of us **I say holding up a picture of us on the beach, Im sitting on his lap and his arms are around me**

||* Nurse *||
Photoshop work wonders doesn’t it.

*~* me *~*
Umm well here **I say pulling out my cell phone** Call his mother, her phone number is right there! She’ll vouch for me! **just than Bob Orton walks down the hall** Him! That’s his father! He can tell you who I am! Mr. Orton! **Bob looks over at me and walks over** Will you please tell this lady that I am your son’s wife so that she will let me see him.

||@ Cow Boy Bob @||
She’s the boys wife, I was just going to head back to the arena to go looking for you. He was asking for you, he’s in room 119 its down the hall and to the right.

*~* me *~*
Thank you, **I say smiling at him and running down the hall, I get to room 119, I pause before knocking on the door and entering.** Hey… **I say as I make my way into the room, it’s dimly lit and randy was lying on the hospital bed** are you okaes?

||% Randy %||
A lot better now that you’re here… Tammi…I've made a lot of mistakes , sometimes because of my dad, sometimes by choice. I just can't do it anymore.

*~* Me *~*
It's okaes, Rand. **I say sitting on the edge of the bed brushing a few strands of hair from his face**

||% Randy %||
No, no it's not ok. I'm not ok... When I was knocked out tonight, I was so scared. I was so terrified. Then I thought of you.. I promised myself that if I could just get up, and walk over to you, and tell you how much I need you, how much I want you and that nothing else matters. Babe I realize without you I have nothing to live for, and without you I am incomplete, please say that you’ll be my wife, for real.

*~* me *~*
Rand… I.. I hope that you get better, I need to go… I yeah… **I say biting down on my bottom lip, getting up, only for him to grab my hand and pull me back**

||% Randy %||
Just think it over.. I love you… and will never stop loving you.
