[.:.* Picture It *.:.]The girls were all excited and talking about how we all got who we wanted, as Candice was scribbling names on envelopes. I was about to leave when Candice pulled me aside.||* Candice *||Tammi, where are you going? *~* Me *~*I was going to go see Chris, I promised to work on his back for him before the show started, it was actually where I was on my way to when you girls pulled me in here, why whatís up? ||* Candice *||Good since youíll be going to the guys locker room you can drop these off, Iím sure the Raw guys will even be in there? theyíre all probably trying to figure out who picked who. But remember; donít tell anyone who you picked? Tonight at the party weíll reveal our draft picks and donít forget that at the party you have to flirt with at least one or two guys who werenít your draft pick to throw the guys off the trail. Oh and Tammi. *~* Me *~*Yeah Candice? ||* Candice *||Nice steal.
*~* Me *~*Huh? I donít know what youíre talking about. ||* Candice *||Donít play dumb, I know what you did, you picked Hunter so Stephanie couldnít have him, because you want him to be with Audra. Thatís sweet of you.*~* Me *~*I donít know what youíre talking about, but I have to go, but Iíll give these to the guys. Bye. [.:.* Picture It *.:.]I slip out the door, with the stack of envelopes in my hands and was walking down the hall towards the menís locker room to look for Chris, he wasnít in there, but there was about half of the Raw male roster and a good deal of the smackdown guys in there. I smiled and walked in and nonchalantly handed out the envelopes I had, I felt really bad in the fact that some of the guys seemed really disappointed when I didnít hand them one. ||# Nitro #||Wait Tammi! Hey Wait! **he said blocking the exit, he like the others had already opened and skimmed through the notes Candice had written** It doesnít say who drafted us, all it says is that weíve been drafted and that weíre to go to this party tonight at this address. *~* Me *~*Sorry guys, I donít know anything all Candice told me was that I was supposed to hand these out. ||@ Mr. Kennedy @||But donít you know who drafted which one of us? Well at least you can tell us who you drafted. *~* Me *~* Sorry guys, no can do. And I really have to go, so if youíll excuse me **I say trying to squeeze by Johnny, but he refuses to budge, continuing to block my way** Mr. Hennigan if you do not move out of my way I am going to have to pull rank on you. [.:.* Picture It *.:.]Johnny moves out of the way and I squeeze past him, I was so mortified that I had to act like that, acting like I was better than them somehow, just because I was their supervisor in a sense, and to call him Mr. Hennigan. Oh well I needed to find Chris and work on his back for him, and I needed to talk to Hunter, screw the not letting him know I drafted him, heck he already knows, I wonder why he peaked in like that, if he was spying or what. I was deep in thought as I walked down the hall as I walked down the hall I pass some of the other guys that had been drafted and hand them their envelopes quickly walking away as soon as I gave it to them not wanting to have the same discussion with them that I had with the others, I had still yet to find Hunter or Chris. When I heard Hunterís voice coming from one of the locker rooms, so I walked in. *~* Me *~* Hunter we need to talk **I said as I enter the room, to see that Hunter wasnít alone, he was sitting around a table with shockingly Randy, Dave, Eddie, and Taker.** Oh hi guys.. Yeah I have something for all of you, youíve all been drafted. You have to go to this party tonight to find out further details, but yeah Hunter do you think I can talk to you in private? ||% Randy %||Oh god, babes you do love me, you forgave me and drafted me! I knew you would **he said running up and wrapping his arms around me***~* Me *~* I didnít say that I drafted you! You could have been drafted by someone else! Let go of me, and here **I say handing him one of the envelopes, I hand out envelopes to the others as well.** Hunter please? ||# Hunter #|| Sure, I know a place where we can go. **he said getting up from his seat as the guys looked at him** ||% Randy %||But babes! Donít go off with him, stay with me, and I know that you drafted me I just know it.
[.:.* Picture It *.:.]Hunter and I walk out of the locker room ignoring Randy. We walk down the hall and out into the parking lot, we sit in his red Ferrari and talk. *~* Me *~* What were you doing peaking in on the draft? You do know now thanks to that youíve become my draft pick. ||# Hunter #||Yeah thanks, that wasnít part of my plan but it did help out a lot. Now I donít have to go on a date with Stephanie. *~* Me *~*You didnít answer me what were you doing peaking into the room? ||# Hunter #||I was looking for Randy, I had to talk to Randy about something, I got the wrong room by mistake. *~* Me *~* BULL SHIT! **I said looking him straight in his eyes** I know you werenít looking for Randy, you could tell you werenít looking for Randy, and you just said something about a plan, so what was this plan of yours? You might as well spill it, or I just might go and tell Steph that Iíll switch draft picks with her, and suffer through a date with Randy, so Stephanie can have you all to herself. ||# Hunter #||God you donít have to get all mean. If you must know my plan was to switch the names on the draft board before you guys came in, but I guess I was too late cause you guys had already started the draft, I was going to switch Audraís and Stephanieís names in hopes that Audra would pick me. Are you upset with me? *~* Me *~*No, truthfully I was kind of stuck, because Jillian took my draft pick. ||# Hunter #||Jillian took your draft pick, I thought that you just said that you would switch with Stephanie to endure Randy?*~* Me *~* I did, Stephanie drafted Randy, but you canít tell anyone. If I find out that it leaked that you told anyone even Randy, I will switch with Stephanie. ||# Hunter #||Okay, Okay. Donít worry I swear on my love for Audra that I wonít tell a soul. *~* Me *~* Alright, I guess Iíll talk to you later then, cause I really need to find Chris and hand out the rest of these envelopes. Bye Hunter, see you later tonight. [.:.* Picture It *.:.]I get out of his car and walk back into the arena, passing a few guys on my way down the hall finally handing out the last of the envelopes, still unable to find Chris. I give up and head down to go check on the set up down at ringside, and I see Chris sitting in the ring facing out into the seats. I run down the ramp and slide into the ring, startling him, for he looked deep in thought.
*~* Me *~*Hey Iíve been looking all over for you, do you still want me to work on your back?
||& Benoit &||Oh sorry yeah, Iíve been down here thinking. Itís quiet down here, a good place to think. So let me guess I wasnít drafted.*~* Me *~*Sorry, no. ||& Benoit &||aww Iím hurt you didnít pick me.
*~* Me *~*Iím sorry Chris. ||& Benoit &|| No, Iím only kidding. Come on lets head back to my locker room and you can work on my back. Hey whereís Nikki? *~* Me *~*Huh? ||& Benoit &||Your dog, you know the little thing that was jumping excitedly on your leg earlier, I would have thought that you would be totting her around with you since you got her back.
*~* Me *~*Oh no, I left her with in Teddyís office, you know how she loves to nap under Teddyís desk by his feet. ||& Benoit &||I guess, sorry I donít really remember..
[.:.* Picture It *.:.]Chris and I head off to his locker room and I work on his back after I finish I was heading back to Teddyís office when someone comes up behind me and covers my eyes. ||$ Wes $|| Guess who? *~* Me *~*I know who you are Wes, I recognize your voice, and your scent.
||$ Wes $||Awww well pretty lady what are you doing tonight after the pay per view I was hoping that you would come out to dinner with me. *~* Me *~*Actually I have plans Iím sorry. ||$ Wes $||Well why donít you change them and.. **Wesís eyes narrow as he looks past me down the hall his voice trailing off** *~* Me *~*And what? **I notice that he seems upset and is staring someone or something down that was behind me, so I turned around and was shocked to see Tony walking down the hall.** Whatís the matter Wes? ||$ Wes $||NothingÖ Nothingís the matter. Everything is okay. *~* Me *~* Then why are you staring a hole through Tony?
||$ Wes $||Through Tony, you mean you know Tony? *~* Me *~*Of course, he is a big private investor in the company. Why? How do you know Tony and why does he upset you so? ||$ Wes $||He invested in the WWE?. Typical.. oh yeah well you wouldnít understand the guy has always been out to out do me. *~* Me *~*OkaesÖ meaning? ||$ Wes $||You really donít know do you? *~* Me *~*No Iím sorry I donít||$ Wes $||Heís my brother. *~* Me *~*So that would make you Wes Ikeda?||$ Wes $||Yeah you didnít know that? *~* Me *~*No Vince, never told us your last name. oh my god, wowÖ
[.:.* Picture It *.:.]Tony walked up to us. ||$ Wes $||TonyÖ||& Tony &||WesleyÖ Hi Tammi, I was just talking to Vince and he was saying that I could take you to be my assistant here, after No Mercy. *~* Me *~*HiÖ Umm yeah **there was this awkward tension filling the air, Tony seemed so cool and collected while you could see the anger and rage building in Wes who was obviously trying to keep what could only be imaged as a bad temper under control.** So umm yeah Iíve got to get goingÖ The show is starting, **Nunzioís music could be heard playing down in the arena** bye guys Iíll see you around. [.:.* Picture It *.:.] I run off down the hall, leaving the two of them standing there. Tony and Wes stood there in awkward silence till finally Tony broke the silence. ||& Tony &|| So what are you doing here Wesley? Are you looking for another business to run into the ground. ||$ Wes $||So bitter, still blaming me for your company going out of business I see.||& Tony &||Whatever Wesley, thatís in the past, so howís that ex-wife of mine doing? Or did she grow bored of using you as her boy toy? ||$ Wes $||Youíre just bitter that I could do something that you couldnít and thatís please her.||& Tony &||Oh please Wesley. ||$ Wes $||And stop calling me Wesley, you know how I hate it. You and Dad are the only two people that call me that and both of you do it just to annoy the hell out of me. ||& Tony &||Fine then do something for me. ||$ Wes $||Fine whatever you want. ||& Tony &||Stay away from Tammi **he said with a stone cold expression upon his face**||$ Wes $||**Wes looked at Tonyís face in all of its seriousness and just smiled** Sorry brother that is one thing I canít do for you. You see you donít control me, and Tammi is fair game, sheís not yours. ||& Tony &||Even if she was mine that probably wouldnít stop you, seeing as it hasnít stopped you before.[.:.* Picture It *.:.]Tony and Wes just stared each other down, meanwhile back in Teddyís office I sat with Teddy watching Juventud defeat Nunzio, Nikki was lying across Teddyís lap as he pet her while watching the match, I was going over some paper work looking up occasionally to watch the match. ||@ GM Long @||Sorry about what happened in here earlier with the Ortons playa. *~* Me *~*Itís okaesÖ it was just really awkward with the fact that Randy hadnít told his parents. Especially how his mom was all excited and well yeah.. but lets forget about all that now. So youíre going to go to that party at Ericís friend Jakeís house after No Mercy right? ||@ GM Long @||Yeah, and from what I hear thatís where the guys find out who drafted them, in some ways I wish that you guys would have announced who was getting drafted after the matches, for some of the guys are depressed that they didnít get drafted and the others are going crazy trying to figure out which diva they were drafted by. *~* Me *~*Iím sorry Teddy, that was my fault, Candice asked me to give notes to the guys who were drafted, I wasnít thinking, I should have waitedÖ||@ GM Long @||Itís aight playa. So whoís the lucky superstar to get drafted by you? I know that there was at least half a dozen guys vying for your attention*~* Me *~*Itís a secret, youíll find out later tonight with the rest of the guys. ||@ GM Long @||Tell me this, is the guy on our show? *~* Me *~* No. ||@ GM Long @||So heís on Raw then? Or are you saying no that you wonít tell me? *~* Me *~*Thatís for me to knowÖ youíll see TeddyÖ but Iíll tell you this I didnít draft Randy. [.:.* Picture It *.:.]Nikki jumps off of Teddyís lap and comes and sits at my feet and whimpers for me to pick her up. I finish the report I was working on and pick her up, carrying her with me as I file the report away. As I was walking back to the desk there was a knock on the door and I go over and open it, to see Nathan standing there.||% Nathan %||Hey Tam, are you busy? *~* Me *~*Hi NathanÖ umm not really, whatís up? Why arenít you watching the show with Becky and your parents.||% Nathan %|| I was but I wanted to talk to you. *~* Me *~*Um well okaes why donít we go to catering, no one should be in there now, we can talk and grab something to eat, I havenít eaten today yetÖ Just let me tell Teddy and we can head out. **I turn around** Teddy Iím going to head to catering with Nathan, is that okaes with you? ||@ GM Long @|| Sure playa, go on enjoy yourself, Iím fine here, besides Audra should be coming back any minute now*~* Me *~*Do you want me to bring you anything back? ||@ GM Long @|| No Iím aight, but leave Nikki here with me will ya? Iíve missed the lil thing. *~* Me *~*Okaes Iíll see you in a bit then. **I put Nikki down and she follows me, but I quickly close the door shutting her in the office, I can hear her whimpering and clawing at the door, which breaks my heart but I turn to Nathan** Shall we go? ||% Nathan %|| Yeah[.:.* Picture It *.:.]We walk down the corridor towards catering and I was right, no one was in there, the tables were empty except a few empty soda cans and half drunken bottles of water. Nathan and I grabbed some food and sat eating not really talking. *~* Me *~*I thought you wanted to talk to me.. youíre being awful quiet for someone who wanted to talk. ||% Nathan %||Itís just well, I know Rand has done some really horrible shit to you, all that stuff with Melina and all, I just wanted to let you know that even though you and him might not be together that Iím still here for you. I know my mom really wants to be a part of the babyís life and well Iíd really miss you too. *~* Me *~*You act like Iím like running off into hiding, itís like just cause I wonít be with Randy doesnít mean that Iíll be on another planet or something. Just CaliforniaÖ ||% Nathan %||You wouldnít be interested in moving to St. Louis would you? *~* Me *~* Sorry, I love living in California, I doubt Iíd be able to deal with the weather in St. Louis, Iíd freeze my ass off in the winter with the snow and all. Besides my family and friends are in California. ||% Nathan %|| Yeah but.. nevermind.. **he said looking a bit defeated and sad***~* Me *~*Anyways, itíll be best for me to stay in California, you know since Rand lives in St. Louis and all, well not that heíd be home muchÖ heíd be on the roadÖ thatís something I never really thought thought about when we were together, how hard it would have been to be all alone for so long while he was out on the road, I donít know how your mother did it. All alone with a baby and not knowing what he could be doing out on the road or who he could be doing out on the road. And thatís not something I want to do, especially with Randy, cause hey look itís happened before. And we were just dating then.. and we were just engagedÖ and its like I was even there and he still felt the need to sleep with her, she was there she was convenientÖ Melina will always be there, and he knows that he can get what he wants from her what I wonít give him. Oh goshÖ its so weird talking about that with you. ||% Nathan %||What you mean about yours and Randyís sex life? **he said laughing***~* Me *~*Stop laughing! Itís not funnyÖ youíre his brotherÖ youíre only in high schoolÖ **there was a monitor in the corner of the room, Nathan and I had been there for so long Randy and Taker were already in the middle of their match up. ** Nate donít you want to go join your mom and Becky and watch Randy and your dad wrestle Taker? ||% Nathan %||Oh dude theyíre already on, I better get back down to ringside I promised Mom Iíd sit and watch with her. Iíll catch you later Tammi. *~* Me *~*Bye Nate, give me a call before you leave, maybe the two of us can go out to breakfast or lunch tomorrow, before you guys leave. ||% Nathan %||Oh weíre not leaving right away, since Dadís supposed to be on Smackdown weíre all staying till Wednesday. *~* Me *~*Oh okaes cool, well call me. [.:.* Picture It *.:.]Nathan runs off down the hall disappearing. I clear our trash, tossing it in a nearby trash can and then head back to the office, Teddy was gone, but Audra was busy working out the scheduling for next week, and Nikki was lying on the floor next to her looking sad. I walk in and Nikki looks up and start barking her yippy little bark and runs and jumps up and down on my leg. I lean down picking her up, sheís so excited and she starts licking my face, so I hold her at arms length as she squirms wanting to be close to me.*~* Me *~*Hey sweetie, what are doing?||* Audra *||Just finishing up next weekís schedule, where were you?
*~* Me *~*Talking with NathanÖ he was trying to convince me to move to St. Louis, so that the Ortonís can be apart of the babyís life. ||* Audra *||Well thatís understandable that they would want to be apart of the babyís life, thatís a good thing right?
*~* Me *~*No, in some ways things would be so much simpler if they didnít want anything to do with the baby and they just left the baby and I alone. I donít how it came up but yeah when Nate and I were talking but yeah.. that even if Randy and I were together I donít think I could handle being in a relationship where he would be gone ninety percent of the time, doing who knows what with who knows who, while Iím home alone with a baby. ||* Audra *||And that will be different from you being alone with the baby in California how? *~* Me *~*Cause if I move to St. Louis Randy will think that there a chance that we would get back together and that is not going to happen, because Iím not going to let him hurt me or the baby. And that is why it would be best if we stay in California, and besides itíll be different because now I donít have to worry about him cheating on me.. yet if I were to get back with him, I would, cause he wouldÖ||* Audra *|| How do you know heíd cheat on you? You donít know that, he could have changed. *~* Me *~*Because he will, it is in his nature to do so, heís one horny bastard who craves sex and well that slut will be right there offering it to him, soÖ hey come on letís get out of here and go back to the hotel and change for Jakeís party. Do you know who youíre going to flirt with to throw the guys off track as to who you really drafted? ||* Audra *||I donít know, I was thinking about maybe Eddie and JohnÖ How about you? *~* Me *~*Christian and RandyÖ Christian cause I want to try and talk him into renewing his contract, and Randy, just to torture him a bit.
