Chapter 1-Dream Street
Being Dusty Rhodes' middle child was never easy. I was supposed to be the one who wanted to be like my older brother and my father then my baby brother Cody was born when I was four years old. Everyone thinks that it is supposed to be the big sister who takes care of the little brother but in my life it turned out to be the complete opposite.
My name is Brooklyn Runnels, I was born on May 17, 1983 in Marietta, Georgia. I can't really tell you what my childhood home looked like. I was never there since I was always on the road with my father. I always hated being on the road, there were too many boys around. Not just my dad's buddies but their children as well. Natalya Neidhart and Becky Orton were the only girls who were there on the road with me.
I wasn't much of a girly girl growing up and I actually preferred being around the boys, it's the same even now with me working as an agent with the WWE. My childhood wasn't easy, my older brother Dustin was never around because he and my father didn't talk since my dad didn't approve of his first marriage to his wife Terri. Cody and I always watched our brother on WWF when my dad was with WCW. We felt connected to him, my dad was pissed when he first found out we watched our brother, but we didn't care we were dying to know who the man behind the face paint was.
Nowadays, you can't separate Cody, Dustin, and I. Cody and I are the closest of the three Runnels siblings. Like I said, Cody was the one who was always there to protect me.
Right now I am going through the worse break-up that I could ever imagine. I gave my heart to the viper and in the end it is the worst thing that I could have ever done. I thought he would change because he has known me from the time we were children and I was willing to look past his "Lady Killer" reputation, but in the end I ended up just like everyone else….heartbroken.
My brother wants to kill Randy for hurting me, hell Ted even wants to hurt him since it was Ted's girlfriend that Randy cheated with. Both of us gave them two long years of our lives. Ted was on the verge of proposing to Alexis or Lexy as we all called her.
"Brooklyn, let's go," Cody shouted as I hurried up and slammed my journal shut.
"Shut the hell up asshole, I'm coming," I yelled back grabbing my bag and walking out into the hall.
"It took you long enough to get your ass out here," Cody smirked, "Did you have a dick in there we didn't know about?"
"No but I'm sure if I did you'd wish you were me you queer," I joked.
"See Cody even your own sister thinks you're gay," Ted laughed meeting us in the hallway giving me a hug and doing the manshake thing with Cody, "I mean you touch me in the middle of matches, you hug Randy, and you never have a girlfriend."
"Theodore is onto something baby brother," I joked and Cody flipped me off, "Ew you perve, I will not do you, you're my brother."
"OH MY GOD! SERIOUSLY SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR SMARTASS COMMENTS TODAY," Cody said slightly annoyed yet still smiling, "I think we are the only ones left here in the arena."
"Whatever, you're the boss," I saluted as Ted chuckled causing Cody to roll his eyes stomping towards the door.
"He's really annoyed with you tonight," Ted said, "What the hell has gotten into you today? This is a complete turn from the Brooklyn who was down in the dumps last week about Randy."
"I realized that it wasn't my fault he cheated on me with that whore," I said putting my head down and looking at the ground.
"Hey no more crying," Ted said grabbing my chin and turning my face to meet his eyes, "We'll get through it together, I promise."
"Thanks," I said smiling when he wrapped his arms around me and gave me a hug.
I tried to ignore the chills that went down my spine but I couldn't. There was no way I was falling for Ted. I've known him from the time I was two years old and never felt anything before, so why was I feeling something now.
Ted, Cody, and I got back to the hotel and I grabbed my stuff out of the trunk of Cody's car and headed towards my room. I was tired and right now all I wanted to do was sleep but my brother wasn't having that.
"I'm hungry," my brother whined.
"I'm not," I said walking to the elevator when he grabbed the strap from my duffle bag and pulled me towards the hotel's restaurant.
"You're eating something," he demanded as he ordered me to sit down.
"You're really starting to get on my nerves I'm older than you by two years and I'm supposed to be the one bossing you around but then again you were never good in math."
"You ugh…," Cody sighed defeated.
"I WIN," I said sticking my tongue at him and he laughed.
"You two really need to stop acting like you are two years old," Ted said shaking his head laughing.
"Seriously Cody Garrett," I said, "You are really starting to act like you have no brain."
"Whatever Brooklynn Raine," Cody said, "Your name sucks, was dad on drugs when he named you?"
"No but I obviously take after mom and don't talk like I'm Elmer Fudd," I spat back causing Ted to spit his drink all over the table before he started coughing.
"Dude she is killing you tonight," Ted joked.
"Hey Cody, what state is Ted from," I asked nudging Ted under the table.
"Mithithippi," Cody said and I fell over laughing causing Ted to smack the table laughing.
It was a known fact with me that I've always made fun of my brother's lisp from the time we were little. Cody got pissed and stood up from the table throwing a few dollar bills on the table.
"Come on Cody I was only kidding," I said, "You know how I am."
"I'm sorry but I'm just pissed about losing the match tonight and now Legacy is going to split, it's just a lot to handle. I'll see you in the morning."
"Goodnight," I said kissing his cheek, "I love you."
"I love you too," he said giving me a kiss on my cheek, "Don't stay out too late we have to catch the flight early tomorrow morning."
"Yes sir," I said saluting him and he rolled his eyes laughing before he patted Ted on the back and said he'd see him tomorrow.
"So, it's just us," Ted said going to sit where Cody was across from me.
"Yup," I smiled feeling a little uneasy being here by myself with Ted.
"Has Randy said anything to you?"
"Nope just that he was sorry and he hopes that we can still remain friends. He's really trying to prove to me that I can still trust him and I am not falling for it. Don't get me wrong I am going to still be civil with him for the sake of the company but will there ever be a relationship between us again…no. So, has Lexy tried to come in contact with you?"
"No, she said she's happy I dumped her because she couldn't put up with me being on the road all of the time. In all seriousness she knew what she was getting into when she started going out with me. I think I need to start dating within the business," he laughed and I nearly choked on my soda.
The waitress came over and finally took our food orders after twenty minutes of waiting and Ted and I were reminiscing about when we were little running around stealing our dad's title belts. When it came time to say good night, Ted walked me to the door of the room that I was sharing with Cody.
"Your brother should ditch us more often," Ted smiled as I stuck the keycard in the door.
"I know, really," I laughed, "He's a party pooper."
Ted just smiled even wider and I got lost looking into his eyes not realizing his face was just inches away from mine until I felt his lips on mine.
"Good night Brooklyn, sweet dreams," he said smiling giving me another quick peck before he walked down the hall to his room leaving me standing there trying to take everything in.
Oh Ted wasn't kidding when he said his finisher was Dream Street because he sure knew how to get the job done without even having to say a word.
