“ Get you’re ass out already Charlotte! I need to change!” She has been in the bathroom for so long. It was almost time for you to shoot a promo. You were back.
“ Relax, jeez women. The queen has to look good” Rolling your eyes at her. She always did this sort of thing. Always took her time in the bathroom getting pretty. Charlotte was a friend of yours but when she took her time in the bathroom taking forever. It annoyed you and she knew it.
“ You must understand us women need to look good out there”
Closing the bathroom door, you faced the mirror. It was good to be back to wrestling, to the ring, to your friends. To your home. Wrestling was your home. There was nothing in the world better than wrestling.
Slipping into your ring gear, applying light make up as you headed out taking much less than Charlotte did. “ Shut up” she muttered seeing you were going to tell her it took you less than 20 mins to get ready.
Giggling, you playfully shoved her to the side with your hip as you head out the door.
Finding the other girls sitting at catering.
“ What are we talking about?” you glanced between Foxy, Nia, Dana, Bayley and Sasha as they were chatting.
“ I was just telling about my trip with Charlotte. She’s so funny. That girl loves to sing her lungs out” Nia said, chuckling shaking her head.
“ You got to love Charlotte”
“ So, are you happy you’re back? “
“ Of course, wrestling is my home” you smiled looking around before looking at Bayley who was smirking.
“ Someone else wants to be your home, I heard” Raising your eyebrow at her. Who could she be talking about? Was it Seth? The two of you have been getting closer.
“ I wonder who could it be…” Sasha made a “hmm” sound, a smile on her face. You were getting butterflies in your stomach just thinking about him. He was somewhere around these halls.
“ Don’t deny that you don’t think he’s cute” Dana nudged you, wiggling her eyebrows. A giggle escaping her lips.
“ Mhmm” you felt your face starting to get warm just the thought of him.
“ Awe! She’s blushing. She totally digs him” Foxy squealed putting her hands over her mouth. She told you that you and Seth would look so cute together and have cute babies. The girls awed seeing you acting all shy because of Seth. Well the mention of him.
“ Is he a nice guy like everyone says he is?” you nodded. “ Yeah, he’s fun to be around. He’s funny, even his cackle gets me laughing. He’s an amazing man”
The subject soon changed as Raw was getting closer to starting. You were glad the attention was off of you and talking about Seth. You did like him, he was cute and handsome. But you were just you. There was nothing special about you or anything that brought out that would catch his attention.
“ It’s almost time” Bayley reached over squeezing your wrist gently, she was so happy that you were back. When she came onto the roster, you beamed seeing her running down the halls giving hugs to people. But the first hug she gave was to you. The friendship between the two of you was very close, she was more of like a sister to you.
“ I am so excited and nervous”
“ Awe, you’ll be fine”
“ How about a group hug for Y/N?” you chuckled getting up with the girls as they surrounded you hugging you. They were great friends but you couldn’t wait to see Seth.
It was time. Starting of Raw and you were first to go out to your music. A mic was given to you, you gripped it taking a deep breath. Glancing down seeing the grip on the mic tightened. Picking your head up, you heard the start of your music. The crowd hearing your music, were cheering and screaming.
Bouncing on your feet, you walked from behind the curtain. Giving a little skip going to one side blowing a kiss to the crowd before going to the other side pointing to them, nodding your head. Glancing around, the fans were cheering for you and singing to your theme song. It brought a smile to your face knowing how much people loved you.
But you were out here for your return and you knew before even speaking, Seth would come out. You could not wait to see him. Side ways skipping down the ring then turning around doing the same on the other side before slipping into the ring. Throwing your hands up in the air, the crowd cheered.
When your music was down, you rose the mic to your lips starting to say something when you were cut off with Seth’s music. Of course, he walked from behind the curtain out to the ring with a mic in his, smirk on his face opening his arms.
“ Will you look at that, the princess that brings hell is back!” he laughed slipping into the ring facing you. His brown eyes taking what you were wearing, he walks around you.
“ I’m ready to bring hell”
“ You’re all talk the talk Y/N. I see nothing special about you. I bet people here paid admission just to see your face”
“ My face is beautiful I know. You dream of it every night” you chuckled.
“ I wouldn’t dream of you if you were the last person on earth Y/N. When I first met you, I found you attractive but then you opened your mouth. Let’s talk about your music Y/N, If I had to guess what Chewbacca having it with a dinosaur sounded like, your music would be pretty close” he cackled, the gap in his teeth showing.
You shook your head, gripping the mic in your hand before raising it to your lips.
“ I’m not offended by what you say. I’m just glad that you’re stringing words into sentences now” the crowd cheered hearing you, Seth closed his eyes pursing his lips before you continued, “ Awe you didn’t like that? Well don’t let your mind wander…it’s far too small to wander on its own.”
“ Shut up! You’re nothing but a loud mouth. These people here are a bunch of idiots to even think of as someone to look up to. All I see is a big mouth and a tiny head”
“ You want to talk about these people? Well these people are people that let us live our dreams day in and day out”
“ They are pathetic as you are” boos were heard around the arena. He was so close to you breathing down your cheek. Turning your head a bit, looking him in his brown eyes that held something you never see there. Regret.
“ Let me ask you something Seth, every day before my injury. You come out to the ring to pester me. To make my blood boil. Sometimes I want to rip your head off your shoulders. But sometimes, I am confused on why you do this to me? Why me? Why me out of every women back in the locker room? I thought I was a pathetic nobody”
He ran a hand down his face, pacing the ring looking out the WWE Universe before facing you. It was now or never.
“ I know, I’m a jerk to come out here and insult you the way I do. I can’t help it. Every time I open my mouth, I just want to be around you. But when I did, it slipped before I got a chance to fix it”
“ What are you talking about Seth?”
“ I don’t need anyone or the title to make me happy. The only person I need is… you.. I like you Y/N..”
You’re jaws dropped at what you just heard. All through the years, he came out to insult you. It was part of the script but sometimes it hurts, he knew it. Outside the ring, you two were close but he never got to the part to talk to you about his feelings or have a heart to heart conversation with you.
This was new to you. To him too. He looked to see the shocked look on your face,nodding his head. He was hiding the hurt in his eyes.
“ I..I..-” he just dropped the mic exiting the ring. Did that just happen?
Running around backstage trying to find Seth. Where did he go? You ran right after him after what he told you. Looking around for him backstage until you saw the back of his shirt, that hair was of his.
“ Seth!” you called out to him. He continued to walk pretending not to hear you. You caught up to him catching him by his arm, stopping him in his tracks.
“ What was that out there? I know we throw insults at each other but what was even that all about…”
He turned his head, his brown eyes staring into your own. The way he was looking at you send shivers down your spine.
“ I like you Y/N. A lot. I can’t help it” He looked down at the ground continuing, “ You’re so perfect in my eyes. The way it came out wasn’t the way I was planning on telling you. But it did” He looked so heart broken. It made your heart sink into your stomach.
“ You’re a great wrestler but your also a great person and I felt so attracted to you. Not because of your looks, yeah you’re gorgeous but the way you care about others. The way you are around people, you make them happy. You make sure a smile never leaves a person’s face. You’re special in my eyes and you found a home in my heart. I know wrestling is your home but I want to be a part of your own home. I want you to be my home, my heart and my everything”
Picking up his face with your fingers searching through his eyes to see if he was just playing around. He wasn’t. He was telling the truth.
“ You mean that?” He nodded, a smile itching on the side of his lips.
Hooking your arms around his neck bringing him down as you placed your lips on his kissing him. As you were kissing him, you heard squeals from behind you. Pulling away from Seth, turning your head there stood Foxy with her hand over her mouth squealing. Charlotte with a smirk on her face and hands on her hips. Bayley clapping her hands. Sasha with her arms across her chest smirking and Nai yelling yes girl over and over. From behind her stood Roman who was chuckling at the girls.
“ Why are you looking at us? Smooch him again Y/N!” Roman shouted. You chuckled turning your head seeing Seth looking down at you leaning down as he kissed you making the girls squeal once more.
It wasn’t that hard to see that you and TJ had something going on between the two of you. One of your friends pointed that you and TJ should just date already. She shipped the two of you but you were afraid to tell him how you felt. You didn’t want to ruin the friendship, he was the cutest nerdiest guy you ever met.
When he left for the cruiserweight , you had hopes that he would get his wish to be a champion and be on the main roster in the WWE. In his eyes you could see that this was something he really wanted to do.
“ I’m going to miss you” you mumbled, pouting as you stood with him at the airport.
“ Don’t do that” he cupped the side of your face, his thumb going to your lips running his thumb over your bottom lip. He thought you were the cutest thing ever. His heart was racing seeing the way you were looking at him, with your wide eyes and pout on your face. He wished he could kiss you right now.
Wrapping your arms around him,burying your head into his neck breathing in his scent. He wrapped his arms around your waist, holding you tight to him. TJ wished he could take you with him.
It was getting hard for him.
Pulling away, you cupped his face with your hands brushing your thumbs over his cheeks.
“ Go get em” a small smile lit on your face, it was weak. You wanted to cry right there and there but held back , swallowing the lump in your throat. He let go of your hand, walking backwards watching you in the distant.
Closing your eyes, a tear fell down your cheek. TJ watched as you silently cried putting a hand to your mouth, his heart fell into his stomach. He wanted to run back to you hugging you not letting you go. He couldn’t stand seeing you cry.
TJ and you are best friends growing up, he grew up next to you telling you his dream was to become a professional wrestler. He wanted you to always be by his side, watching him, supporting him just like you did through high school and college.
He called you his number on girl.
Although through the years, TJ has been seen different in your eyes. He took your heart, he grew into a gorgeous guy. But you never told him how you felt because you didn’t want to lose him. You’re friendship meant so much to you, if you couldn’t have him then you’d be his best friend through the years even if it hurts watching him look at someone else, hold someone else’s hand, smile at someone else.
When he had his match in the Cruiserweight, you saw him with the title. It brought tears and amount of happiness you felt for him. First thing TJ did when he ran backstage after his interview, he called you.
“ Y/N! I did it..” he said.
“ I am so happy for you TJ. I knew you could, I wish I could be there for you”
“ Me too” then he hung up on you before face time calling you. When you saw his face pop up, he was smiling at you while holding the purple Cruiserweight title for you to see.
“ It’s purple, nice” giggling, he rolled his eyes knowing it was your favorite color. He looked at the title before looking at you through the phone, he winked saying, “ I can’t wait to see you.”
“ Soon, maybe”you shrugged sighing, work has been a hassle. They kept you at late hours and you were getting more tired than ever.
You and TJ stayed talking a little more before he had to go get showered and head back to the hotel. That night he wished you good night sending you a picture of himself while holding a plush toy you hide in his back saying he found it.
When TJ found the plush toy in his suitcase, he chuckled knowing you put it in there. It was a little dog plush toy that you kept in your room. He kept it with him, hoping one day you’d come see him.
That day came sooner than expected. The Cruiserweight roster have been put on Raw. They were in LA and you already gotten a ticket to see him. He had no idea that you were coming.
I miss you so much, TJ texted you. You’re heart melted getting a message from him. He was extremely busy but he made sure he made time to send you a message, a selfie or tag you on twitter. He was so sweet and you wished more and more that you were his girlfriend instead of his best friend.
You drove up to the arena where RAW was being held, excited to see the look on TJ’s face once he sees you. You got front row tickets, getting out the car you walked towards the arena.
The closer you got, the more nervous you got. No one knew how much you love TJ, he was your best friend but he meant a lot to you. Biting your lip, you handed your ticket. It was being scanned, your phone buzzed letting you know you had a text.
Getting your phone out while taking the ticket, so many people where. You already went to the bathroom before and grabbed something to eat before coming here. Making your way to your seat, you stopped gasping seeing how big it was.
It was amazing to be here. Getting to your seat, you glanced at your phone seeing TJ texted you.
Why haven’t you called me? :( </3 Awe he was upset that you didn’t talk to him today. It wasn’t that you didn’t want to talk to him. You wanted to surprise him, for him to see you in the crowd.
I’m sorry, I will later you texted back with a heart. Right away he send you a blushing emoji with a heart. It was too cute. He was too cute.
The show started, you stood up putting your phone away watching every match closely. The camera ran by you and you hoped that TJ saw you. You’re phone did buzz, a wide smile appeared on your lips knowing it was him. He saw you backstage.
When it was time for his match, you screamed throwing your hands up seeing him coming out. TJ scanned the crowd, he did see you backstage and was so excited seeing you here cheering for him. As he walked down the ramp, he turned to see you smiling wide at him.
For you, he broke character rushing to you hugging you before going to the ring. He winked at you, you watched his match closely. Cheering for him, yelling and booing his opponent.
“ you got this TJ!” you yelled. He heard it, looking at you and nodding his head before he turn the tables on his opponent giving it all he got. As the show came to an end, a security guard made his way over to you.
“ Miss, TJ Perkins requested for you to come backstage” he said to you. “ Okay” you nodded following the security guy backstage. Walking past many superstars and women, you were brought out of your trance when you heard your name being called.
“ Y/N!” turning your head just in time for the person to crash into you sending you to the ground. You laughed, seeing TJ above you smiling down at you.
“ Hey there” you giggled. He got off you ,letting out a hand for you so you could get up. You grabbed onto his hand, he helped you up before bringing you into his sweaty chest.
“ Ew, TJ your sweaty” “ Oh shush. I am enjoying the moment” you laughed, he was such a goof sometimes. But that was one of the many things you loved about him.
Pulling away, you looked into your eyes while he looked into yours. It felt like no one else was around. Just you and him.
“ Damn, she has a nice ass” someone muttered. It was right behind you, TJ looked over your shoulder seeing one of the crew members talking about with the other crew member. TJ pulled you closer to him before telling them, “ Keep your eyes to yourself, thanks. She’s mine” he growled underneath his breath and you swear it was the sexiest thing you ever heard.
Pulling away from him, you arch your eyebrow glancing at him, “ I’m yours?”
A blush reached his cheek as he rubbed the back of his neck looking elsewhere but you. “ Uh..” was all he had to say, you giggled leaning up kissing his cheek.
“ Go get showered and change, I’ll wait here” He nodded rushing but not before placing a kiss on your forehead.
It didn’t take him much longer as he came back to get you. He took you to the parking lot where his rental car was, you got into the passenger seat as he drove back to the hotel.
His room was nice, his room mate wasn’t here yet.
“ Is it okay if I’m here?” you plopped on his bed as he took off his shoes.
“ Yeah, I don’t see why not?” you shrugged before bouncing a little as TJ laid down next to you.
“ Did you enjoy the show?” you nodded. “ You did great out there like always” you turned your head to look at him. He glanced over to you, a strand of hair was in your face so he leaned on his elbow, pushing it away.
His fingers went to your cheek stroking it. It’s been awhile since he touched your skin. It was soft just like he remembers. He cupped the side of your face, stroke it smiling at you but his smile dropped as his face turned serious.
He looked down at your lips then to your eyes asking you for permission. You nodded your head. TJ leaned down brushing his nose against yours before brushing his lips against yours. He was hesitant to kiss you.
You wrapped an arm around his neck bringing him down kissing him softly. His hand went to your neck pulling you so you rolled on top of him. His hands were on your hips before moving to your back rubbing it while he kissed you.
Softly pulling away, you stared into his eyes. They held love in them.
“ Y/N” you both said at the same time, you laughed telling him he could go first.
“ Y/N, from the moment I saw you, I wanted to know you. Once I got to know you, I found myself liking you. As our friendship grew my heart was yours from the beginning of it. I am in love with you, I know distance may be hard between us but we can work. I will do anything to have you by my side.. please be mine?”
“ Of course Perkins, you had my heart since we met. I love you too dork” he leaned up capturing your lips with his, turning over so he was on top now making you squeal into the kiss.
He pulled away from the kiss brushing his nose against yours, rubbing it giving you an eskimo kiss before he kissed you again mumbling against your lips, “ Mine.”
