Jeff and myself quickly got our bags and a cab, making our way to the hotel. The cab ride was rather quiet both of us thinking. Once the cab came to the hotel we hurried out and checked ourselves in. I was the first one in the room. I got on the phone and dialed John's hotel number it rung four times before it was picked up.
"Hello?" John asked in a sleepy voice.
"Hey John, it's Matt. Did I wake you up?"
"Yeah. What's wrong?"
"She's having headaches."
"The kind where they hurt her so much that she can't open her eyes."
"Fuck. Are you guys in North Carolina?"
"Yeah, we'll be here for a week. Your in Virginia Right?"
"Yeah. I've got a match tonight and then I'm off. I'll be over there in two days. Who's with her?"
"Right now Shannon, Randy and Adam."
"Good. Can you make sure that she's not alone."
"Got it covered. Do you want her to room with one of us or what?"
"See who's Mickie is rooming with first. If she's got a roommate then have her with one of you."
"Ok. Hold on." I sat the phone down and looked at Jeff. "Here talk to him, I'll go call Mickie." I said walking out the door with my cell in my hand.
I held the phone and watched my brother run out the door.
"Hey, Shannon said something about a doctor."
"Oh, Doctor Hamilton?"
"I don't know, he just said to call you and try to set up an appointment with one."
"Ok, Dr. Hamilton is in our city. That want do, Do you know any there that could help?"
"I don't know any, but I'm sure that dad should."
"Ok. Can you ask him and get back to me?"
"That I can do."
"Jeff I've got to tell you something that I can't keep secret any longer."
"Well, Alia's mental state isn't that good. With everything that has happened to her in the past. Once she started blacking out I took her to Dr. Hamilton. He said that if she started blacking out almost every week and getting headaches a lot then she might not make it. I don't want to lose her."
"John," I took a deep breathe before continuing. "What exactly are you saying?"
"I'm," I could hear him sigh. "saying that she might die. I've got to get her to the doctor's as soon as possible."
"Yeah. According to Mike her brain might start to overload."
"Ok. I understand."
"I'll see you all in two days. I've got to get some sleep before I go to the gym."
"Alright, see ya then."
I hung up the phone and sat down on the end of one of the beds. I sighed and thought about the news that I had received. 'Alia, die? No, that can't happen. I'm not going to let it happen. I wonder if she's in pain right now? Would it be better for her if she did die? Maybe, but it would kill almost everybody here that knows her.' I was brought back to reality when Matt walked back in.
"Alia isn't going to be rooming with Mickie." he said. "She's going to be staying with Shannon."
"Matt what are we going to do?" I asked looking at him in the eyes.
"What are you talking about, I said she…"
"Yeah, Shannon, I mean what if something goes wrong with her health."
"What if she was to die Matt. What would you do?"
"Cry like a baby, nothing else I could I do. Do you know something that I don't?"
"Well? Are you going to tell me?"
"John said that her doctor told him that her mind may start to overload."
"Yes now, life really sucks you know that."
"That I do little bro, that I do." He said patting me on the shoulder.
After getting my bags I walked over to where Adam and Randy were sitting with Alia in the middle of them. They already got her bags for her. I looked at the three and wondered what would happen if I was to lose one of my best friends.
"Shannon you ready to go. We need to get Alia back to the hotel before she passes out." Adam said slightly holding her up.
"Yeah, let's get a cab and we can get her there."
"When she's like this she looks like her ring name." Randy said.
"I know man, I don't want her to walk, can you two get her bags?" Adam asked. "I'm going to carry her out."
"Yeah." We both said. "I'll take yours, that way you want drop her." I said.
Adam handed me his bags while Randy got his and Alia's. We made it outside to an awaiting cab and put our bags into the trunk. Alia was sitting on Adam's lap with her head leaned on his shoulder. She looked like a little girl, I slid in next to him with Randy on the other side. The cab took off down the road and my phone went off.
"Hey, somebody has to stay with Alia until John gets here."
"He told me to call Mickie but she's rooming with Ashley, so he said that between us five…"
"I got it. She can stay in my room. I'll let the other two know."
"Ok good. How is she?"
"Right now sitting on Adam's lap asleep."
"Ok. Well when you get here call me back."
"I will." I hung up and told the two others what was going on.
The cab stopped about five minutes later and we got out. Adam still had Alia in his arms when we walked into the hotel. We checked into the two rooms that was on either side of Matt's and made our way to them. We had just placed Alia down on the bed when she began to wake up.
I opened my eyes and looked around slowly. My head was throbbing, I felt like I had a hangover, but I knew that I didn't. I looked at the three guys that was standing around the bed and smiled.
"Hey." I said softly.
"Hey yourself." Randy said. "How are you doing?"
"I've got a headache again but good. Um…Where am I at?"
"The hotel sweetie. You feel asleep at the airport so Adam carried you." Shannon explained, I looked down at my hands. "Don't look like that. He did it because he loves you, your dad will be here in two days." I shot my head up and stared at him. "That's right. I didn't call him Matt did."
"You are going to be going to the doctors. No questions or protest. Got it."
"Now while he is gone, we are going to be watching over you. Between Randy, Shannon, Matt, Jeff, and myself you are not going to be alone no matter what. Well only if you have to take shower." he chuckled.
"Thanks I think."
"No problem. Now," Randy leaned over and gave me a kiss on the forehead. "Me and Adam need to go to our room and take a shower before we go to bed. We'll see you tomorrow."
"Ok. Good night guys."
"Night A-bug." Randy said. They both walked out as Matt and Jeff walked in.
"I see you finally awoke." Matt said with a small smile.
"How dare you call John." I said loudly.
"Calm down. You need to get your head checked out."
"Yeah, but." I got up off the bed and regretted doing it. I lost my balance and feel back down on the bed.
"Stay seated." Jeff said.
"I'm calling room service for you." Shannon said.
--Third Person POV--
About twenty minutes later room service was brought up to the room. Randy, Adam, and Mickie had come by the room to check on Alia before they went back to their rooms to get some sleep. Matt and Jeff had finally retreated to their own rooms. Shannon placed a plate of food on the bed in front of her.
"That looks gross." She said.
"Gross or not you need to eat." Shannon said placing a hand on her knee.
"I don't feel like it." She looked up at his eyes and sigh. "Fine I'll eat it for you." She picked up a fork and dug in. She had eaten three bites before she pushed her plate away from her.
"That's not enough." Shannon said.
"It is for me. I'm done." She crossed her arms across her chest and stared at him.
"Ok, Damn don't get pissed. I'm just looking out for you."
"I appreciate that I do Bri, but please leave me alone."
"Ok, If you need anything I'll be in the shower. Get some sleep."
"If you say so."
She grabbed the remote and turned the TV on, flipping through channels. Shannon stood at the bathroom door and rolled his eyes. Alia stopped on Law and Order and began watching it. Soon she was asleep. Shannon walked out of the bathroom about twenty minutes later and laughed at the sight of Alia. She was sprawled out on the bed with her hair waving behind her. She looked like she had been sleeping for quiet a while but what Randy had said in the cab came back to his ears…She does look like an Angel.
