--In the Car--

I had my head against the passenger window. Dave was driving the rental back to the hotel. Dave grabbed my hand and without looking at me squeezed it. He held my hand the whole way.

"Dave, can I ask you something?"


"How long have you liked me?"

"I started liking you when you were 16 but decided that I should wait and let my crush on you to subside. But it never did. I finally got up the courage to tell you how I felt."

"so you've felt this way for about two years?"


"Your so nice." I slid over the seat and rested my head on Dave's shoulder.

"What's wrong sweetie?"

"Nothing. I'm just a little tired is all."

"Go to sleep. Don't worry about it." I closed my eyes and soon went to sleep.

--Dave's POV--

I pulled up to the Hotel and shut the car off. I looked over to Alia to find her sleeping on my shoulder. I didn't mind she looked so beautiful. Even though she has her head wrapped up in bandages. She's always beautiful.

"Let's get you up stairs." I said as I picked her up and carried her into the hotel.

--Normal POV--

I woke up and looked around. It was very strange. I had this feeling that I had done this before. I heard someone come into the room and I started to panic.

"I see that you're awake." Dave said as he walked in the room and placed a box down on the table before he came over to where I was.

"You scared me."

"I'm sorry babe. Do you want any breakfast?"

"I am kind of hungry." I said as I stated to get up off the bed.

"Don't get up. You are going to be eating in bed."

"Ok." I said as I laid back down in the bed. Dave brought the food over and sat down next to me.

"What do you want? I've got pancakes, bacon, eggs, and sausage."

"Eggs please."

"Here. Now eat this and eat the bacon. I'll go over to the table and eat the other stuff."

"No, sit here and eat with me. Please."

"Ok. I can't say no to you." he sat back down on the bed. I stated eating and so did Dave.

--ON RAW--

"Alia, It's so good to see you."

"It's good to see you as well Vince." I nodded to Dave as he left for the locker room.

"I want you to know that you have a match tonight. And then you are going to have a match at Vengeance."

"Who am I going up against tonight?"

"The person that you were to wrestle. It's all on schedule. Jeff Hardy."

"I thought that's who I was going up against tonight. What about Sunday?"

"That my dear you will find out along with everybody else."

"So later on tonight."

"Yeah later on right after your match."

"That's cool. Well I've got to go."

"K. Good luck."

I walked into Dave's locker room he was sharing it with Jeff and Randy. Dave and Jeff was sitting on the couch. I walked over and sat in between them. Dave put his hand on my right leg and Jeff put his arm around my shoulders.

"Hey Jeff did you know that we have a match tonight?"

"Yes I did, but I only found out about that when I showed up."

"Well what do you think we should do?"

"Wing it."

"Well I want a great fight. Give me 100 percent nothing less."

"Are you sure. I don't want to hurt you."

"If I can bet up Shannon and Jimmy at the same time. I think that I can handle kicking your ass."

"Is that so."

"Yeah it is."

"Guys, stop it. Jeff don't give up and Lia stop trying to start a fight here."

"But Dave he started it." I stated as I stuck out my bottom lip and stared at him.

"I was sitting right here."

"Yeah and he started it."

"Let me think……Ok Jeff, you started it."

"Wait a minute….Just cause you are dating her you are going to side with her." Jeff joked before he let a smile cross his face.

"Yes I am going to side with my girlfriend."

"I'll side with my boyfriend." I leaned over and planted a kiss on his lips before I got up.

"Where are you going?"

"I've got to go get ready and then I'm going to get something to eat before the match." I walked over to my bag and got my outfit for the night. Blue jeans and a THE BEAT t-shirt that was created for us. Tonight Adam was going down the ring with me. I went into the bathroom and changed. I came out and walked towards the door.

"See you when you get back."

"Yeah." I said as I walked out the door.

I walked down the hall and into catering I got some fruit and a bottle of water. I sat down at a table and finished my food. I checked the time and got up and walked back down the hall. I was almost at the locker room door when I stopped dead in my tracks. 'Why is he here? I've got to go somewhere else? Move your feet. Damn it why can't I move?'

I finally moved a little mores down the hallway. I couldn't see anything else around me or anyone. If I did I would of noticed that Randy was a little more down the hall and that Matt was behind me. I also would of noticed that they were as equally as shocked as me to see him there. I would of also heard my name being called by my dad who was looking for me. 'I'm losing my mind. He's not here. He can't be here. Not now.'

I finally came to my senses when I was about ten feet away from him. I blew my top when I spoke. "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE?"

"Well if it isn't my little Angel."

"DO YOU FUCKING CALL ME THAT." I was turning red and was giving myself a headache.

"Someone's got a temper. Awe, So your not happy to see me then." just then my dad walked around the corner.


"Cause I'm the sexist the man alive. That's why."

"HA, yeah right. I'm done with you." he then grabbed my arm and I slapped him across the face. He let me go and placed his hand on his face.

"Now why did you do that for?"

"Because you touched me." I tried to walk by him but he grabbed me by my waist this time. "Let me go." I said through gritted teeth.

"Get your hands off of my daughter now." he let me go and I ran down the hall right into Randy. I fell into his arms as he held me and walked with me to the curtain.

"Why is he here?" I said looking up and him.

"Sweetie I don't know, but I am going to find out." he stated as he wiped a tear off my cheek. We arrived at the curtain and Adam was waiting, he turned around and looked at us both.

"What happened?" he said as he put a arm around my shoulders.

"She saw Chris in the halls. He put his hands on her. She lost it and I brought her here for her match. Take care of her."

"I will. Go tell Dave that he needs to be right here when she's finished with the match and tell him about this Chris thing."

"Ok. See you both when you get done. Good luck Alia."

"Thanks Randy." he hugged me and walked away. I turned to Adam and hugged him. The sound guy motioned for us to go and we did.

Adam put his arm around my waist and we walked out to THE BEAT'S song. You could hear cheers and a few boos throughout the stadium. I cheered up a little going out there. The fans changed my mood sometimes. I tried not to let the whole Chris is back thing affect me but it did. As I walked down the ramp I felt tears roll down my face. I closed my eyes as Adam guided me towards the steps he helped me up them and into the ring.

"I wonder what's the matter the Angel King."

"She looks like she just lost her best friend JR."

Jeff notice that I was crying. He nodded to Adam and he walked over to me and hugged me. He whispered in my ear "Are you ok?" and my reply was "Jericho." as he let me go and looked at me strangely. He backed up and the ref called for the bell. I really wasn't in the mood to fight tonight but I had to do my job.
