Chapter 1

 

This is a story about a blonde haired, grey eyed girl named Krystal.  Her family had been in the wrestling world her whole life.  The World Wrestling Federation to be exact…which was later changed to the World Wrestling Entertainment.

 

The WWE changed her life in so many ways it was unthinkable…After a title was stripped from her uncle…half the family hated the company and the other half just wanted to keep living…Then a couple of years later a senseless accident, which should of NEVER happened tore her world apart.  Pretty much 3/4 of the family hated the company…And Krystal?  She didn’t know anything…She didn’t know how she felt…and she certainly didn’t care anymore…She was 17 when her world fell apart…

 

Now at 24, she was 5’9” 125lbs…her grey eyes she’d gotten from her father just like she’d inherited his dirty blonde hair…which on her was waist length…Krystal’s life was finally starting to drop into place.  Living in her apartment in Alberta, Canada.  She’d been through college and medical school and had become an Orthopedic surgeon…It would figure with the family having a sports oriented back ground she’d choose to be the person they all came to for injuries.

 

Krystal’s rebel cousin Kate had been forbidden to ever be a wrestler or work for the WWE…Naturally the REBEL Kate was…she automatically had to do exactly what her father had told her she wouldn’t be doing.  And naturally when Kate started dating co-worker and fellow wrestler Mark Jindrak…Her father exploded…Nearly taking half of Canada with him.

 

Kate was just trying to get her father to understand that no matter how hard he tried…she was going to be her own person.  Hell she stood at 5’11” at 135lbs with silver/grey eyes that seemed to run in the family…and her once beautiful brunette locks had been dyed to look like raven colored spun silk that hung down the middle of her back.

 

Krystal and Kate Hart were cousins first and best friends 24/7…They were always there for each other…out of every one in the family…they were the only two girls…and they were the same age…thank GOD!  When Krystal’s father Owen Hart had passed away due to an accident…Kate never left Krystal’s side…Krystal spent most of the next year secluded in her room…until she moved out to go to college. 

 

While Krystal was in College Kate was at Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) in Louisville, Kentucky training to be a damn good wrestler.  After watching her father Bret Hart wrestle all those years…she’d found her calling in life.  Naturally she’d been trained by her grandfather Stu Hart, without her father knowing…but of course when she broke the news to Bret…He was a little less then thrilled with his daughter…To say the very least.

 

Now she was a big WWE superstar…and he was still less then thrilled…Their relationship was strained…but there was no way Kate was going to let her father ruin her happiness…She’d wanted to wrestle all her life…and she blamed him for it…she remembered when her and Krystal would sit back stage and watch their fathers in the ring…Kate’s eyes would light up in hopes to do the same thing some day and Krystal would cringe on every bump…no wonder she favored being a doctor.

 

Chapter 2

 

“C’mon Krys…You do the same thing every day.”

 

Kate’s begging whining voice was starting to get on Krystal’s last nerve!  Kate said, “Do something different for a change…You know take a vacation…you deserve it…You’ve not taken it easy or relaxed since you’re dad died…You deserve some fun to ya know.”

 

Krystal sighed heavily…and Kate said, “I’m sorry Krys…You know I didn’t meant it like that…I’m just concerned that if you keep going at the pace you’re going at…you’re going to get burnt out big time…You’re going to go insane and end up taking me and every one else with you.” 

 

Krys said, “Enough already!  Look you offered the invitation…and I said I’d think about it.”  Krystal’s free hand not holding the phone came up and rubbed her aching temple…They’d been on the phone now for 30 minutes and Krystal was starting to get a massive headache.

 

Kate said, “Yea but could you think about it a little faster…I don’t want you to work any harder then you have too…you’re patients will understand…besides that’s why the hospital made you a permanent doctor there…so you could have the same benefits as the other doctors.” 

 

Krystal said, “Yes I know…I don’t take advantage of my 8 weeks of vacation through the year and I need to start…But see the problem is…I’ll start taking it when I feel tired enough to actually take the damn thing.”

 

Kate said, “Okay…I’ll leave you alone…but you know I’ll just call you back later tonight or tomorrow for an answer…Give mom and dad my love and I’ll talk to you soon.”  Krys said, “Okay…Take care of yourself Kate…I’d hate for you to be my next patient.” 

 

Kate laughed and said, “Oh you’d just love that so you could boss my around…Please my father has been trying to do it for the last 24 years…if he can’t do it…what on earth makes you think you can?”  Krys said, “The power of being your doctor and whippin’ your ass if you don’t follow my directions.”  Kate laughed again and said, “Well…Just don’t tell dad…I’d never hear the end of it.”  The girls said their good-byes as they hung up.

 

Krystal spent the remainder of her day off enjoying the quietness of her apartment building.  She was staring at the sky…it was clear blue with a slight breeze that made it perfect weather to do absolutely nothing but enjoy the day.

 

Krystal knew Kate was right…Once she’d started college she hadn’t taken a break for 6 years.  Kate was always right…No matter what they argued about or discussed…Kate was forever right…Usually.

 

Krystal noticed it was 9 pm…And she went in and showered…she laid in bed for about 10 minutes and then picked up the phone and called Kate’s cell…

 

Kate said, “Hey Cuz…what’s up?”  Krys sighed and said, “You’re right and you know you are…And you know how much I despise you being right constantly…You win this battle…but next time don’t get so cocky…cause one of these days I’ll shock you and win one…”

 

Kate said, “I’m only looking out for your best interest…So…You’re coming for a visit.”  Krys laughed and said, “You really want me to say it…don’t you?”  Kate said, “Absolutely.”  Krystal could practically hear the smile in her sing song voice…She smiled at her cousins silliness.

 

“I’m coming.”

 

Chapter 3

 

Kate couldn’t believe she’d actually heard her cousin say she was going to join her on the road for 2 weeks.  Kate walked from the balcony back into the hotel room where she saw her boyfriend Mark Jindrak laying against the head board bare chested and in his boxer/briefs.

 

Mark patted the space on the bed next to him…as Kate ran over and jumped on the bed next to Mark as he wrapped her in his arms.  He kissed her temple as she snuggled down into his arms and Mark said, “So is she coming?”  Kate beamed with a bright wide smile and said, “Yes…I can NOT wait for her to get here…She will be here in a week.”

 

Mark’s best friend John came walking out of the bathroom in a pair of basketball shorts and said, “Alright…someone new for me to corrupt.”  As he climbed into the spare bed and said, “And if I hear any moaning or freaky shit coming from your half of the room…I’m gonna have to get nasty with you two.”

 

Kate and Mark laughed as Kate said, “Cena stay away from my cousin…She’s been traumatized enough in her life to not have to be put through anymore from a strange man she hardly knows.”  John said, “Well…Once we’ve been introduced…I won’t be a stranger anymore.”  Kate laughed and said, “I didn’t say stranger…I said strange man…Strange…honey…as in weirdo.”  John chuckled and said, “Not feelin’ the love from your side of the room Kate.”

 

Kate said, “If I had any love for you you’d feel it…with my foot in your ass.”  Mark was practically rolling with laughed at their banter…they had all become really good friends when they went through OVW together and then were all pretty much signed to WWE at the same time.  Kate and Mark had a thing and didn’t want to stop…John…well he was a player…and everyone knew it.

 

Meanwhile, Krystal was sitting in bed looking through one of her many photo albums from growing up.  Krystal came across a picture that tore at her heart…It was a photo of her and Kate celebrating their 17th birthday’s together as they were only 2 weeks apart and always celebrated it together…They were standing between their father’s…Kate was next to Uncle Bret and Krystal was next to her father Owen.  Everyone looked so happy in the picture. 

 

2 weeks after the party is when Krystal’s father had the accident.  Stray tears slid down Krystal’s cheeks at the memories…She’d gotten into a fight with her dad about going to the states for college.  And he’d said she was too young…he said 17 was not an appropriate age for someone to just pack up and move to the states only to attend college…When Canada had so many promising colleges.  He’d also told her unless she wanted him living with her in a college dorm when she had finally picked a college she’d drop the subject of going to a college in the states.

 

Krystal was so mad at him…she thought he was being unfair and called him a jerk as he grounded her for a week for being a smart mouth…He left for the states that night for the Pay pre-view…Uncle Bret had come to the door the following night of the Pay pre-view and told her, her mother and her two older brothers about their father’s death…She’d never gotten a chance to say she was sorry for being a surly brat.  Krystal just figured God was punishing her.

 

He was a vengeful God.

 

Krystal threw the photo album into her papasan chair as she turned the light out and laid down in the bed and couldn’t stop the tears from coming anymore.

I can…not find…

A way…to describe it
It's there…inside
All I do is hide
I wish…that it…would just go away
What would…you do

You do…if you knew


What would you do

All the pain…I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what…Was never said
Back and forth…Inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable

Come and take me away

I feel…like I…am all alone
All by…myself

I need to get around this
My words…are cold
I don't want them to hurt you
If I…show you
I don't think you'd understand


'Cause no one understands

All the pain…I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what…Was never said
Back and forth…Inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable

Come and take me away

I'm going nowhere on and on and
I'm getting nowhere on and on and on
I'm going nowhere on and on and off and on and off and on

All the pain…I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what…Was never said
Back and forth…Inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable

Come and take me away

Take me away


Break me away


Take me away

Chapter 4

 

- -4 Weeks Later- -

 

In between the 4 weeks, it took to get Krystal’s vacation time all settled and get her packing completed…Kate had managed to get rid of the one thing she thought she’d have forever.  Mark Jindrak.  The boyfriend she’d had for the 3 years of being in WWE…They’d met at OVW and started dating when they realized they had both been signed to the same company.

 

Mark Jindrak hadn’t exactly turned out to be the boyfriend Kate wanted in life…You know…He saw himself as a big ole playboy who couldn’t keep his dick in his drawers…and well…Once Kate found out he’d been screwing around on her…She only saw him as knocked the fuck out when she kicked him in the face…It’s pretty much the same time everyone else saw him as knocked out as well.

 

It would also be the time she started casually dating Brock Lesnar…he’d left the company a couple of years ago and they’d been friends also since OVW…but Brock was called up a year before Mark, Kate and John…When Brock decided to come back and found out about Mark and his cheating habits…He immediately made a play for Kate…He’d always been attracted to her but could never say anything…well now he saw his chance and took it.

 

Krystal looked down at her sitting form on the airplane…She had on black cargo capri’s with white socks and black sneakers, and a White form fitting T-shirt that had black around the edge of the sleeves and around the neck.  Her blonde hair was hanging down in blonde silk tendrils.

 

The plane landed and Krystal was just waiting for the okay to get up and grab her back pack.  The stewardess finally gave the go ahead as she stood up and grabbed her bag and slung it over her shoulder and walked off.  She made her way down the hall and into the airport…but didn’t have to go too far when she spotted Kate leaning against a column talking with two guys bigger then her.

 

Kate looked up and a smile spread across her face as she pushed off from the column and walked towards her cousin…They stopped at looked at each other and then embraced in the world’s longest weeping hug.  They separated and were wiping tears left and right as Kate smacked Krystal’s shoulder and said, “Shit head…I can’t believe you made me cry.”  Krystal smiled and said, “Wuss…can’t take a little emotion…”

 

The girls laughed as the two gentlemen approached them…One was blonde and built like a brick house…the other was brunette and built, but not quite as big as the blonde.  Kate looked to the side of her and saw the guys standing there and Kate said, “I’m sorry you guys…Krys this is Brock Lesnar…Whom you’ve heard plenty about.”  Brock said, “All good I hope.”  As he shook her hand and Krystal said, “Couldn’t tell you…I’ll get the truth later.”  As she winked at him.

 

Kate said, “And this is John Cena…I trained at OVW with him…and we kind of got started in a friendship we couldn’t stop.”  The blonde looked at John and her grey eyes hypnotized him as she smiled and shook his hand and said, “Nice to meet you…Well both of you.”  John nodded and let go of Krystal’s hand.

 

Krystal said, “And I’ve got a surprise for you.”  Kate rolled her eyes and said, “Lemme guess you packed my old man up in one of your suitcases on his orders…Just so he could make sure I was okay after the Mark fiasco.”  Krystal laughed and said, “Not that he didn’t want to come…because he did…I couldn’t pass him off at customs as a very large fur coat…The guys said it was 80 degrees in the states and I wouldn’t need one.”

 

Kate couldn’t help but laugh…Once she got her giggles under control she said, “Okay gimmie the surprise.”  Krystal smiled and said, “I’m staying the whole month…That’s why I changed my flight.”  Kate smiled and said, “You lied to me…You said you had to go back in 2 weeks for a conference.”  Krystal shrugged her shoulders and said, “Yea…Live with it…Like you’re not going to enjoy having me around for a month.”

 

All John could think of doing was raising his hand and saying he’d enjoy having her around…But notice he only thought it…He didn’t say it. 

 

Once they got the luggage and tossed it into the vehicle…John opened the back door of the SUV for Krystal as she took his hand and he helped her in.  Krystal smiled sweetly and said, “Thank you John.”  His name sounded so beautiful rolling off her soft red lips…Lord did he need to get a hold of himself…She was only going to be there for 4 weeks…There was no way she’d ever be interested in him enough to do or say anything with him.

 

John smiled and his dimples made themselves present.  Krystal nearly fell back out of the SUV once seated in it…If John hadn’t closed the door there was a GREAT possibility she would’ve been laying on the concrete of the airport parking garage.  Krystal breathed a little as she squeezed Kate’s hand…Who just gave her a funny look and said, “You ok?”

 

Krystal said, “Yea…I’m okay…Just a little bit of jetlag.”

 

Jetlag…Yea right.

 

Chapter 5

 

Once they all got to the arena for the night…Krystal and Kate were walking behind John and Brock catching up and laughing.  Kate said, “So ask me I know you want to.”  Krystal smiled and said, “Is he here?”  Kate said, ‘Of course he’s here…When’s the last time you talked with him?”  Krys said, “This morning before I even got on the plane.” 

 

Brock and John could hear the girls talking and John looked at Brock and said, “Who is she talking about?”  Brock shrugged his shoulders and said, “I don’t have a clue.”

 

As they walked into the arena, a voice yelled, “KRYSTAL!”  Krystal’s head popped up and there he was…her best friend since practically forever.  Krystal broke out into a smile as she pushed her way between Brock and John and took off towards the tall figure.

 

John and Brock stood there with their mouths hanging open as the cockiest jerk in the WWE; Randy Orton scoped Krystal up and spun her around in circles as he hugged her. 

 

Kate pushed through the guys and said, “Don’t be so surprised…Her and Randy have been best friends since birth practically.  When his dad was in the company, my dad and Uncle Owen were starting out and used to bring me and Krys with and Randy’s dad used to bring him too…They kind of just latched onto each other.  They’ve been friends ever since.”

 

John breathed a sigh of relief…He couldn’t imagine Randy having a steady girlfriend…at least not one he’d not already cheated on.  John was extremely interested in getting to know Krystal…he was just hoping she was willing to do the same with him.  He was about to walk into the dressing room him, Brock and Randy shared, but was stopped when he ran into an arm.

 

John looked over and Kate had her arm against the door way and she looked at John and then looked down the hallway at Randy hugging her cousin and said, “I know you already like her John…but please be gentle.  I know you and Randy don’t exactly see eye to eye…but he’s been her best friend longer then you’ve known him…She’ll take his side until she gets to know you…Remember that.”

 

John nodded and started to walk in when Kate said, “Oh and by the way John…I’m on your side.”  John slightly smiled as he nodded again and continued into the room followed by Kate and soon after Krystal and Randy who were talking up a storm.

 

A week later, all of them decided to go out to a club with everyone else from the Raw roster.  Krystal had on black plastic pants that had laces up the sides of her legs, a white crocheted, cropped shirt with short sleeves…that showed off about 2 or 3 inches of her tones abs…and black open toed 3 inch heels that buckled around her ankles.  She’d left her hair down in blonde waves.

 

Once they got to the club, they hadn’t even sat down yet, when John watched as Randy pulled Krystal onto the dance floor and were so close you couldn’t get a piece of paper between them.  Kate saw John and touched his arm and said, “Chill out big boy…just remember they are only friends.”  John grinned and nodded in understanding but still couldn’t help but feel jealous…he’d gotten to know Krystal a lot since she’d been on the road for a week already and they were enjoying each others company…but he was having a hard time getting her alone for more then an hour before Randy would show up.

 

Randy had Krys wrapped in his arms as the song poured through the speakers and like a fog crept along the dance floor and enveloped the two friends.

 

*****************************

My skin is like a map, of where my heart has been
And I can't hide the marks, but it's not a negative thing
So I let down my guard, drop my defenses, down by my clothes
I'm learning to fall, with no safety net, to cushion the blow

I bruise easily, so be gentle when you handle me
There's a mark you leave, like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily, can't scratch the surface without moving me
Underneath I bruise easily, I bruise easily

I found your finger prints on a glass of wine
Do you know your leaving them all over this heart of mine too
If I never take this leap of faith I'll never know
So I'm learning to fall with no safety net to cushion the blow

I bruise easily, so be gentle when you handle me
There's a mark you leave, like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily, can't scratch the surface without moving me
Underneath I bruise easily, I bruise easily
*****************************

 

The whole time Krystal was dancing with Randy she was staring at John…She’d noticed him watching her and Randy…she winked at John and he smiled at her as he got engrossed into a conversation with Brock, Kate, Lisa (Victoria) and Tyson.

 

She watched as he smiled and laughed at the people at the table.  When he looked over at her again she smiled softly at him.

 

*****************************

Anyone who, can touch you, can hurt you, or heal you
Anyone who, can reach you, can love you, or leave you

So be gentle
So be gentle
So be gentle
So be gentle

I bruise easily, so be gentle when you handle me
There's a mark you leave, like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily, can't scratch the surface without moving me
Underneath I bruise easily, I bruise easily

I bruise easily, so be gentle when you handle me
There's a mark you leave, like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily, can't scratch the surface without moving me
Underneath I bruise easily, I bruise easily

I bruise easily
I bruise easily

Chapter 6

 

A couple of days later, The Raw roster found themselves back at another club unwinding after a house show…John watched as Randy danced with Krystal again…John and Krystal had been getting closer…No one seemed to notice it but them…they’d had a lot of after show talks…sometimes they’d sit in one of their hotel rooms and talk nearly all night long…A few times they ended up falling asleep where they’d been talking the night before.

 

Tonight Krystal had on jeans, white sneakers and a white form fitting t-shirt with her hair down yet again.  She decided if she was going to dance and have fun, she was going comfortable.

 

When the song was over Randy and Krystal walked over to the table in the corner where everyone was…Lisa and Tyson had gone to dance…as well as Kate and Brock…Trish (Stratus) had walked up and asked Randy to dance…so he’d taken off with her…John was sitting in the back of the booth in the middle of the table as Krystal slid around and sat next to him.
