Authors Note: Okay, my other version of Can You Love Me, just wasn't working for me, so I decided to change the time line and summary in a way cool with you guys? If not sorry hope you still read though, I might even bring the other one back with a different title, just not now, anyways enjoy the show...


Lita sat back in the woman's locker room crying her eyes out. 'How could Matt do such a thing to her?' Matt had been the love of her life, maybe she didn't spend as much time with him as she could have but she had to get back to RAW it was her home. If Matt had loved her he would have understood that.

But no...he was just as selfish as he claimed her to have been. Lita was his girl so she had to be with him, even if she didn't want that he did and that's all that was supposed to matter...but not anymore, now they were no longer together.

Lita should have seen it long ago, like when Matt no longer visited her in rehab. While Lita recovered from her horrible neck injury only a few people stopped by to see her regularly: Edge, Trish, Stephanie, Jericho, even Steve Austin stopped by every two or three weeks and then there was Jeff.


Lita hadn't heard from him since she left the rehab center and that had been four, almost five months ago. Maybe Jeff had stopped caring right along with Matt. The thought of Jeff not caring anymore broke her heart. Jeff had been the one to train with her, he actually gave a damn when she was hurt, and now thinking he didn't...well Lita just didn't want to think of it.

"Lita honey?" a soothing voice said from the doorway.

Lita jumped and looked up to see Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus in the doorway. When Lita realized it was her friends she continued crying, not caring what they thought.

"Lita," Trish said resting a hand on her shoulder.

"Trish, how could he do this? I mean all I did was care for him!" Lita shouted.

Edge appeared in the doorway panting. "Li...I got here...as fast...as fast as I could." He breathed.

"Oh Adam!" she cried running into his out stretched arms.

He pulled her close to his chest and let her cry. She buried her face in the hollow of his neck, and his T-shirt became drenched with tears. Edge whispered soothing words into her ear as he stroked her red hair.

"Honey, it's okay, I won't let you go...won't let him hurt you again." He whispered with his lips right against her ear.

After sometime Lita finally stopped crying. "Adam I cant believe even Matt would stoop this low. I mean he embarrassed me in front of everyone and gave me the twist of fate!"

"Amy I wish I could tell you what to do...I really do but the truth is I can only dim the pain, nothing more." He said using her real name.

"I'm afraid there is only one man that can do that, and he doesn't care either."

"Who is he? I'll kill him."

"Jeff." She whispered.

Edge grinned. "That's where you're wrong."

Lita laughed deep in her chest, almost like a cackle. She turned away from him. "What makes you so sure?"


Lita looked up at the ceiling forcing her tears back. "You know I don't even know what I did to make him stop caring."

"I never stopped caring Lita."

Her heart froze, literally, she thought she had died at that moment. Could this really be Jeff...her Jeff? Slowly, ever so slowly she tuned and came face to face with Jeff Hardy, her best friend since she was at least fifteen.

"Lita how could you ever think that I stopped caring?" he asked walking towards her.

"Jeff, I haven't seen or talked to you in almost five months, what would you have thought?" Lita spat back, tears falling down her pretty face once more.

"Li don't cry, please I can't stand to see you like that..." he whispered standing so close to her that he could smell her perfume.

"Jeff I cant help it...I mean you're my best friend and you stopped talking to me. I kept thinking over and over 'what did I do to him, why doesn't he want me as a friend anymore?' do you have any idea what that feels like?"

"Lita, if I could take back all the pain I would, I really would please...I'm sorry don't cry anymore."

"Jeff you hurt me, and even though you hurt me I can't find it in me to be mad at you."

Jeff looked into her brown eyes; they were full of hurt, betrayal, and loneliness. "Lita," he whispered somewhat huskily. "Let me hold you, let me dim your pain."

Not giving it a second thought Lita collapsed into his arms and sobbed. Jeff held her until she fell asleep, then he carried her out to his truck and drove her to her hotel room. There he tucked her in, and kissed her goodnight.

****Okay how was this one? I tend to favor it more ya know? But if you don't I could work something out I guess, anywho tell me what you think!!
