Evie Morgan fluttered around the ballroom finalizing the arrangements for the black tie event. She was the director of Marketing for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. She had been asked to arrange the event for the WWE. She sighed as she thought back to all the times she'd spent backstage with her fiancé. It had been a long time but the memories were still so vivid. Sometimes more vivid than she would have liked to admit. She pushed the thoughts out of her head as she heard a voice behind her. She turned around and smiled into the face of her best friend.
"What are you doing here? I thought you weren't coming." She said as she ran over and hugged her friend, Kaylee.
"Um…you invited me. Do you honestly think I would not take the chance to come and be in a room filled with Hot Men?" Evie rolled her eyes and smiled. She was glad that her friend was going to be there for her for moral support. She wasn't sure how seeing everyone would go and she was more than a little nervous. She always was at these things. She missed Henry and how he would keep her sane. Kaylee caught the sad expression on her face and put her arm around Evie's shoulders. "Hey now. This is a good day. None of that. You're doing this for him. It's been three years honey. You have to move on." Evie looked at her and nodded slightly.
"That is easier said than done. I'll see you later. I have to go and change my dress." Evie said as she walked back into her room and changed out of her dress pants and blouse into the floor length red gown she had hanging behind the door. She quickly pulled her dark brown hair into a bun and pinned it in place. She freshened her makeup and slipped on her shoes and walked back down to the ballroom to greet the Superstars as they arrived.
Mike "The Miz" Mizanin got out of the limo and straightened his tie. He was glad that he was able to make it to this event. Even if he did have to come alone. He had planned to attend with his girlfriend but he'd found her in the locker room with another wrestler. It was the night he'd won the title. He shook his head. He hadn't dated since then. He looked over as he felt a hand clap his shoulder and smirked at his friends John Cena and Randy Orton. He was glad that they had been there for him.
"You alright?" Mike nodded.
"Yeah. I'm Awesome." Mike said. John laughed. They headed into the ballroom and John smiled as he spotted the brunette in the red dress laughing at something that Cody Rhodes had said to her before he walked further in with Layla on his arm. He tapped her on the shoulder and she turned around and smiled at him. Mike looked at her and was completely amazed. She was beautiful.
"Evie, where have you been hiding?" John said as he kissed her on the cheek.
"I have been working there champ. How have you been?"
"Pretty much the same as you. Except I am not the champ right now. He is…..Evie Morgan, Mike "The Miz" Mizanin." She turned her attention to the man standing beside John and smiled.
"Nice to meet you."
"You too." Mike said kissing her hand. Evie rolled her eyes and shook her head a little.
"Why don't you guys go ahead inside and we will catch up later?" Evie said John nodded and walked in with Mike close behind him.
They found their table and sat down. They looked around at the tables of things for the silent auction. The superstars had agreed to have a date with them auctioned off.
Evie watched John sit down with Mike and Randy. She and John had kept in touch after Henry's death. He was one of her closest friends in the business. She saw all the people biding on the auction. She saw Kaylee by the tables of the superstars.
"Are you biding?" She asked her best friend.
"I am and I plan to win." Kaylee replied with a smile as she wrote down her bid.
"You are bidding that much to win a date with John?" Evie was shocked by the amount.
"Hells yeah. Have you seen the man? Totally HOTT!" Kaylee said with a smile. "I plan to win and make him love me."
Evie laughed at her friend. "Yeah love you how?"
"Oh you know what I mean." Kaylee looked at her friend. "What about you? Are you going to bid?"
"No, I'm not." Evie saw her boss and knew she had to continue to make the rounds. "I have to go. Good luck on your bid."
Kaylee watched her friend walk away. Evie had been alone since Henry's death and it was time she got back in the game. She had seen the guys walk in earlier and thought that maybe Mike would be a good date for her. She walked over to where his name was and placed a bid in Evie's name. She smiled once she had and walked to sit at the table Evie had told her too.
"So, tell me about Evie?" Mike asked John as they sat there eating dinner.
"She does marketing for the Pediatric AIDS foundation. She is single now. Her fiancée died a few years back." John replied looking where Evie was sitting. He smiled as he saw her talking to a blond sitting by her. Evie was actually laughing and smiling and that was great to see. "Let me warn you Mike. Evie is a sweet girl and if you hurt her, I will break your neck."
"Whoa, chill out Cena. It's not like I'm going to ask her to marry me or anything. I just want to get to know her better. That's all."
"Yeah, good luck with that." Randy said. "Evie hasn't dated since Henry died."
"Maybe I can change that." Mike said as he kept looking over at the table.
"Mike, I swear to God, that girl is like a sister to me. I am being completely serious when I say if you hurt her, I will kill you." John said with a stone face.
"Better listen to him Mike. Evie and John are as close as brother and sister." Randy said just as Evie walked up to the table with Kaylee.
"You guys having a good time?" she asked standing between Randy and John.
"This is a great party. The silent auction was a great idea." John said smiling at her.
"Thanks. Guys, this is Kaylee Paxton. Kaylee, this is John Cena, Randy Orton and Mike Mizanin.
"Nice to meet you." Kaylee said never taking her eyes off of John. He smiled and took her hand obviously checking her out.
"You too. Would you care to dance?" he asked. Kaylee nodded and walked out onto the dance floor with John. Mike thought that maybe this would give him a chance to talk to Evie.
"Would you like to dance?" he asked her. She smiled at him sweetly and shook her head.
"I am actually kind of busy right now. Sorry, if you will excuse me I have to go get ready for the bids to be announced." She gave Randy a hug and nodded at Mike as she walked away from the table. Randy laughed at Mike.
"Yeah, she was really in to you."
"She's just got to warm up to me. Pretty soon, that girl will be mine."
"Listen Mike, I would heed Cena's warning. He will hurt you over that girl. And he isn't the only one." Randy said as he threw his napkin on the table and walked away.
Evie walked up to the podium with the winners of the silent auction. "Can I have your attention please? I just wanted to thank everyone for coming. This auction is for a great cause and we have raised a lot of money and it's thanks to all of you. Now, I will announce the winners. First the date with John Cena goes to Kaylee Paxton with a bid of five thousand dollars."
John was a little shocked that someone paid that much for a date with him when he would have went out with her for free.
"Now the winner for the date with Mike Mizanin is Evie Morgan with a bid of two thousand five hundred dollars." She said slowly. She didn't even bid on anyone. She looked at Kaylee who was smiling. "Now next date."
She proceeded to read off who won what. After she was done, she got off stage and walked over to Kaylee. She didn't notice John or Randy nearby.
"Why did you do that? You know I didn't want to bid on anyone." She said to her best frined.
"Evie, I was just trying to help. You need to get back in the game."
"Maybe I don't' want to or have the money to spend on the date."
"I will pay for it." Kaylee replied. "Evie, I love you but it's been three years. Henry would want you to move on. You need to move on." Evie looked at her for a minute.
"I don't need to do anything. I am fine just the way things are." She said.
"So you bid on a date with me huh?" Mike said walking up behind her. "Couldn't resist huh?"
"I did not make that bid. My meddling best friend did. You are conceded and cocky. I don't date. I don't want to date and even if I did date, I would never date you." She said as she grabbed her purse and stormed out of the ballroom. John had seen the whole thing from across the room and followed her quickly out of the ballroom catching up with her by the elevators.
"Evie, wait." She stopped and turned to look at him tears streaming down her face. "Kaylee is worried about you. We all are. Henry was a great guy. One of the best friends I had but she's right. He wouldn't want to see you like this."
"I can't do it. I can't go on this date John. I can't put myself out there again."
"Listen, just…..do this for the kids. You know if you don't go on the date, they don't get the money. Do it for the kids. We can even go on a double date if you want. I will be there to make sure that Mike is on his best behavior." Evie looked up at him and nodded her head.
"Okay, but if he even steps one toe out of line, the date is over."
"Deal." He gave her a hug and they walked back into the ballroom.
"Evie….." Kaylee started but she was quickly interrupted when Evie walked up and grabbed Mike by the arm spinning him around.
"I will go on this date because it is for charity but it will be a double date with Kaylee and John."
Mike nodded his head.
"How about tomorrow night at 8?"
"Fine." She said as she quickly walked out of the ballroom pulling Kaylee with her.
