Oh No...

Oh No…

 The Beautiful Bar Tender.

“So Dean is also a wrestler?”

“Yep.” Roman answered (F/n)’s question as he packed his bag. He turned to look at her and cupped her face. The 3 months were over and he had to head back to work. She didn’t want him too but he had too. She looked at him and he kissed her.

“Don’t worry I’ll be back. We’re just going somewhere and come back real quick okay? I’ll be here before you know it.” He reassured her and kissed her tenderly. She kissed back her eyes turning slightly red. She wanted to cry, she had grew so close to him it hurt her to watch him leave even though it was just for a bit. He picked up his bag and looked at her. He gave her a sad smile and looked at her.

“Don’t go…I have a bad feeling…” She said and he sighed.

“If it were for your bad feeling we would’ve never done anything in these 3 months. I’ll be careful okay?”  He said and poked her forehead. He then left to the front door and looked at her.

“No goodbye kiss?”

She smiled and walked to him giving him a long deep kiss; he returned it and wrapped his arms around her. He then looked at her and smiled.

“I’m going to leave now…and don’t worry everything’s going to be fine you’ll see I’ll be back in a few days.”  He said and she nodded giving him a tight hug which he gladly accepted and return. He kissed her one last time and left as she smiled with her eyes red, the moment he shut the door she let out the sob she had been holding in. Roman sighed when he heard it and continue to walk away not being able to get (F/n)’s sob and face out of his mind. He picked up Dean and drove.

“So how’s (F/n)?”  Dean casually asked.

“She’s…She’s not good… She’s crying she didn’t want me to leave…she thinks something bad will happen.” He sighed and looked sad. “I really didn’t want to leave her…but our job…it’s important…when can we come back?”

“I’m guessing in about 1 or 2 weeks? I dunno.” Dean shrugged and looked through his phone. Roman sighed and continue to drive. (F/n) was at her bed lying there when she heard her notification sound go off. She picked her phone and saw a texted from Dean.

‘Don’t worry we’ll be alright princess so stop crying for me. (;‘  

She laughed slightly and answered back.

‘Go away Dean (x. Tell Roman I love him.’

‘Okay.’

Dean turn to Roman.

“Ro.”

“What’s up?”

“I love you.” He said and then turned back to his phone while Roman gave him a confused look and chuckled lightly.

“Love you too brother.”

‘Done! He said ‘I love you too brother’

‘Omg Dean, are you serious?’

‘(;’

(F/n) smiled and went to sleep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(F/n) was working at the bar and she was serving people until her friend tripped over and spilled red wine all over her shirt. (F/n) breathe heavily and looked at it, it looked like blood. She knew something bad was going to happen but she didn’t bother to care for it even though deep down she was super worried. The next day she was sleeping and woke up and saw Roman at her door.

“Roman I didn’t even hear you come in…what are you doing standing there? Com–.”

“I came to say goodbye. I just wanted to know if you’re going to love me now that I’m all injured.” With that he started to walk away.

“Roman! Roman come back! Where are you going? Come back!” She yelled but he just kept walking away and at that moment she woke up panting. She looked terrified.

“He’s injured…” She told herself. “Something went bad…” She said and started to cry. She quickly turned her ps3 and went to WWE Network putting the match of Roman. She couldn’t watch it live since she was at work. Everything seemed to be going alright until Roman…He didn’t land well. He landed on his head making him growl in pain while holding his nape and neck. The paramedics came rushing in and at that moment the screen went to a commercial. (F/n)’s heart sank and her tears slowly fell.

“No…No…Roman…”
