--Alia's POV--Same day Matt arrives--
"Matt will you stop. Go up to my room, it's not like I can climb the stairs anyways."
"But A. it's your room. Don't you want to stay in there before…" He trailed off the sentence. He didn't want to say the words that he knew was the truth.
"They are just things Matthew. I just want to be with my friends and family. Those things are just objects. I don't need them what I need is the company."
"I guess I see your point." He finally got the point. He dropped his bag and walked over to me. "I love you." He said as he pulled me into a hug.
"I love you to Matt." I returned the hug. "Go take your things up to my room. You do know where that is right?"
"Of course." He smiled and turned around. He grabbed his bag and walked up the stairs. I turned around and looked at John.
"He really does love you."
"Yeah I know." I said with another smile. "Are you guys going to be in the office?"
"I don't know. I think so. Are you going to finish up those letters of yours?"
"Yeah. I fell asleep before I could of finished them." John walked over to me and kissed me on the forehead. He then walked to the office. I turned around and sat down on the floor and pulled a piece of paper in front of me to continue the letters.
Mr. Loudmouth, what to say to you…I love you. You know that. Thank you for helping me out. You were there when I needed a shoulder. You are the one that I could trust to help me out whenever I needed it. You are the best friend and the big brother that I never had. I love your heart and your caring ways. You should know that you are the best. You are the only one that knows about Lance and I would love you even more if you keep that to yourself. You may end up not liking the guy but give him the benefit of the doubt. He was doing what Chris told him to do. FORGIVE him, that is all that I ask of you. Forgive him. I love you. Do what you have to do.
I folded this letter, name on the outside and placed it in the box like the others. I decided that I might as well get this all over with. Go on with the next letter. I mean it was already just after 5 so dinner had to be started soon. Just get one more of the way.
Shannon, this is going to be hard.
I love my handsome brother. You are always there to take care of me. You are like another father figure to me. I want you to do one thing for me…Keep the guys, all of them, with each other. Everything needs to be the same for them all to be happy. I know that you can handle that. Punkie you are the best thing that I had and you should know that. When I first started coming to the back stage you were the first one to help me out. I love you and you are a member of my family and I wouldn't change any of that.
I followed the process like before. I yawned and stood up. I stretched before I walked into the office to find the guys talking in hushed voices. I didn't want to be rude so I knocked on the door making the two older guys look up at me with smiles on their faces.
"Well look who it is? I see that you are finally up from that coffee table. What were you doing anyways?"
"Matt that is none of your business." I answered walking into the room taking a seat next to Matt. "What are you boys doing?"
"Party plans." John answered making me grown. "Come on it's going to be fun. With everyone here something should get out of hand."
"That would be awesome. I miss those parties." Matt added.
"You only miss the parties that I would get pissed out with one of the wrestlers and beat the hell out of them or throw them into something."
"That I do. I mean Shane's been on the receiving end of so many of those."
"Don't forget Phil. He's been on the same end as Shane has." John said with a chuckle. "If you were well enough shorty I would let you do it to those two again. But…"
"Dad, I can still take both of them even like this." I said making the two laugh. "What's for dinner?"
"We were planning on having pizza. How does that sound?"
"Fine. Do we have any Sprite? I don't feel like eating anything solid." Matt and John's smile's turned to frowns.
"Yeah, we should have some in the kitchen. If not I'll go out and get some."
"Ok." I said about to get up but I lost my balance and feel back down onto my chair. Matt and John both jumped up and came to my side.
"Alia? Sweetie are you ok?" Matt asked grabbing my hand. John felt my forehead.
"I'm fine. I'm just weak is all. I need to go finish that job I was doing." With that Matt picked me up and took me to the couch in the living room. He handed me the paper's and pen. "Thanks Matty."
"No problem sweetie, I'll bring you that drink." he smiled at me and left towards the kitchen. John was leaned on the door frame with a small smile that didn't reach his eyes. He was about to cry and that was going to make me cry.
"Dad can you do me another favor?" I asked softly. I was getting tired again.
"Anything darling." He replied walking over to me.
"Can you make sure that everybody gets these letters?" I asked tapping on the box.
"Sure, Who do I have to give the letters to?"
"Well right now Mickie, Ashley, Shannon, Shane, Phil, Matt, and Ken."
"I think I can manage that."
"But I'm not done yet."
"Who else do you have?"
"Let's see…Randy, Adam, Dave, and Jeff." I said and he nodded his head. "Oh and yours."
"Mine?" He asked shocked.
"Yea yours. I'm writing you one whether you want one or not."
"I'll do the job you want me to do. Don't worry." I was about to open my mouth to say something but Matt walked in.
"Here you go sweetie." He said handing me the drink.
"Thanks." I said with a smile and the two walked back into the office to finalize the party plans. So I got back to the letters.
I really hope that you are getting better. My last wish for you is that you do. I have loved you as a brother and that is why I tried to make the relationship work. But as it happens it didn't and I am happy that we could still be friends. Please get better. They have always said that time heals all wounds. I believe that and it should. So it's just a matter of time before you get better. We had some good times and I wouldn't change any of that. But the things that I would change are the parts that you know. I want everything to work out for you in the end and for you to be happy. I want you to know that I love you.
I folded this and placed it in the box. I set the paper's aside and laid my head back against the pillow and closed my eyes. I let sleep overtake me once again.
I was sitting in John's office going over the party plans when the doorbell rung. John stood up and I followed him into the living room. I glanced over to Alia and saw that she was asleep. I walked over to her while John walked over to the door. I kneeled beside her and moved a piece of her hair out of the way.
"Well pizza's here. What do you say we let her sleep?"I looked up to John and nodded my head. I got up and walked into the kitchen with him. He set the pizza on the table and walked over to the cabinet.
"John, how long does she sleep now-a-days?"
"About 20 hours. The doctor's coming by tomorrow to check on her." he informed me.
"Do you want me to stay here or go get some more sprite for her?"
"She is almost out of it. Do you mind?"
"Not at all. I'll go when the doctor gets here." he brought the plates and sat down in front on me. I ate two slices before I spoke again. "You know what, I'm going to get Ms. Sleepy head up."
"She's going to be very grouchy."
"I know she is." I got up and walked into the living room. I noticed that Alia was still asleep so I kneeled beside her. " 'Lia, come on wakey waky. Bright blue eggs and chicken bakie." I nudged her. " 'Lia wake up." I nudged her again. "Food's here." I sighed and stood up. I glanced over to the kitchen door to see John standing there with a smirk on his face.
"Why don't you tell her Jeff and Shannon are here?" He said quietly. I nodded my head and leaned down to her ear.
"Alia, are you up yet?" I smile. "Oh well I guess I'll have to send Jeff home then." I glanced up and looked at her. Uh, still no movement. "Shannon's here." I said still looking at her.
"Matthew if you don't get away from me I swear to god you are going to get it."
I jumped back not realizing that she was awake. Which caused John to roll with laughter. "Damn girl. I thought you were asleep. How long have you been awake?"
"Since you said food's here." She answered sitting up. "I don't want anything to eat."
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah. I've got some stuff to do."
"Alright." might as well leave her alone.
"No problem." I smiled at her and walked back into the kitchen and back to the dinner that John paid for. Only two more days until Jeff arrives.
