It took Rena about a second to recover from the shock that I actually laid my hands on her. As soon as she recovered she lunged for my throat. I was ready for her. I was sick and tired of her crap. Unfortunately, Kevin and Shawn had me by the arms and I couldn't punch her. However, they didn't have my legs so I was able to get a good kick to her ribs before Shawn and Kevin could stop me.
"Ok. Now that's enough." Kevin said as I continued to struggle. "Stop!" He and Shawn finally shouted together jerking my arms to get my attention. They were finally able to get my attention and I settled down.
By that time Vince, JR, Shane and Stephanie had made it down to where we were.
"Ok. Who exactly would like to explain what's going on here, who took it upon themselves to rewrite the show?" Vince demanded looking at Rena then at me. Neither of us spoke up. I knew I better keep my mouth shut if I wanted to keep my job, besides what would I say? 'She started it' would sound so mature. Obviously it was a rhetorical question because Vince immediately turned to Rena.
"Rena, I don't know what your problem is but you should know better than bring personal issues on screen! I know that the two of you have had a tiff going on for some time and that's what gave me the idea to bring Victoria on screen, but I don't want you rewriting the show whenever you feel like it. I know that I give you guys freedom to make certain changes, but you do not control the direction of the show! Luckily for you two, what happened tonight plays perfectly into the story line that we have planned." Vince said shaking his head.
"I suggest that both of you separate and cool off. I don't want to hear or see any more of this crap. Is this clear? What we do may be unorthodox, but this is still a business, and I expect you to treat it as such." With that Vince turned around and walked away. Shane, Stephanie and JR followed him.
Before she walked away, I caught Stephanie giving Rena a look that could kill. I guess the Princess didn't like Silicone Barbie any more than I do. I wonder if Rena has had the balls to try to steal Paul. Nah… I don't think Rena would still be walking around if she tried to cross the Princess. Although, I would like to have front row seats to that fight if it ever happened!
I was so busy picturing Stephanie beating up Rena that I didn't realize that Kevin was talking.
"….You just can't loose it." I hear Kevin say. He glances down at me and realizes I haven't heard a word that he has said. "Are you even listening to me?" Kevin asks shaking his head.
"Sorry Kev. I kind of went somewhere else for a while. What were you saying?" I looked up at him sheepishly.
"I was saying I understand why you lost it with Rena, I would have too, but you've got to keep your cool. This isn't just a private thing anymore. Every time you loose your temper, you are playing right into her hands."
"I know that Kevin! I keep telling myself not to let her get to me but then I see her and I just loose it. You aren't telling me anything I don't already know." I respond as I follow Kev and Shawn to their dressing room.
Over the course of the next week I follow Kevin, Shawn and Trish around the north working various house shows. I don't know if you can call what I did during the show working, all I ever did was go with Kevin and/or Shawn to the ring and act like a cheerleader. I was under strict orders not to lay a hand on Rena yet. I did however earn my keep during my daily workouts with a number of people. I was put through the wringer sometimes six days a week with conditioning or actual wrestling. And I was loving it!
With the number of people I had working with me I just hoped I was able to make them proud and hoped that they did not feel that it was a waste of their time. I definitely adapted to a style of wrestling that was more barroom brawler than girlie diva. No girlie slaps for me I went for the full on punch and chop. I took on who ever was willing to work with me. I wanted to prove that I actually deserved to be there for some other reason than being Kevin's sister.
Rena was prancing around as usual and trying to flirt with Shawn when she thought that I was not looking, but for the most part she has left me alone. That has made me a little nervous, but I heard through the grapevine that Vince had threatened her job if she caused any trouble outside of that written in the storyline. Personally I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it always seems to do.
I didn't have to wait too long. Unfortunately I had been so busy thinking that Rena was going to do something I didn't see this one coming and it really threw me for a loop.
AN: Hey guys I'm back! Hopefully back on track too. Sorry this chapter is so short, just trying to get things back on track. Unfortunately the same applies as before. The only person I own in this chapter is Vicks. The others own themselves or are owned by Vince McMahon.
