Here it is, everybody! The last installment of The Truth. As I finished writing this chapter, a feeling of accomplishment came over me. Not just because I finished it, but because I made it enjoyable to a lot of people. I just want to say I'm glad that you all liked, or in some of your cases, loved this story. Thanks for the many, many reviews you all left me. And just so you know, this won't be the last you hear of Dave and Jessie. There will be a one-shot sequel that will let you all in how things went for the couple. So without further adieu, chapter ninety:
Chapter Ninety: Dave's P.O.V.
"I'm going to go work out with Randy. I'll be back in a couple of hours," I told Jessie for the second time before giving her a peck on the cheek and walking out of the hotel room.
I headed down the hallway to Randy's room and knocked. 'I wish I knew what was wrong with her' I thought to myself while waiting for Randy to answer. I hated seeing Jess like this.
"Hey, big man," Randy smiled, opening the door. "You ready?"
"Obviously, I am, Orton. Or else I wouldn't be here waiting on you," I replied.
"True." We walked downstairs to the gym in silence. Right then, I had nothing on my mind but Jessie. "What's bothering you, Dave?" Randy asked once we reached the gym.
"Jess got sick again this morning," I told him.
"Are you sure she doesn't have a case of the flu or something?"
"I don't know. She went to the doctor's yesterday and they're supposed to give her a call back today."
"Well, I hope everything is okay. For both your sakes. You have been through enough."
"Yeah, me too."
"Enough about that. Just think of how good it'll feel to power bomb Trips through that table tonight."
I smiled to myself at the thought of Evolution coming to an abrupt end after I "signed" with Raw. "Yeah, it's going to be great."
A couple of hours later, Randy and I headed back to our hotel rooms. As I was getting ready to put the key card in the lock, I heard Jessie talking to someone.
"I just don't know how or when to tell him. I don't want him to worry about it at work tonight."
"Then tell him after the show," I heard John's voice answer. When had he gotten there?
"I guess that would be the best time. Now I just have to figure out how."
"That, I can't help you with," John replied ad then all was quiet as I unlocked the door and walked in.
"Hey, babe," I greeted and kissed her. "You feeling any better?"
"A little," she answered with a weak smile. "How was your work out?"
"Great. Cena, when did you get here?"
"Just a few hours ago. I thought I'd drop in on J since you said she wasn't feelin' too hot. But you're back and I've yet to see Trish so I guess I'll catch ya'll at the show," he said and left.
"That's unlike, John. He usually likes to stay and talk," I said to Jessie.
"Well, you know him. He's got to get around to everybody," she responded and sat down on the bed. She had yet to make eye contact with me.
"Has the doctor's office called yet?"
"No," she answered quickly yet quietly.
I let out a sigh of frustration. "Jess, what's up?"
"Nothing, Dave, I'm fine."
"Look me in the eye and tell me you're fine. Then and only then will I believe you, Jess."
"Dave, I'm okay. Just stopping bugging me about it, alright?"
I sat next to her on the bed ad tilted her chin so she was looking at me. "I know you're lying to me, Jess. I can tell by your actions. You can't do this, especially if we're going to get married. Marriage is based on trust and if you keep doing this, that trust won't be there. You understand me?" I told her calmly.
She nodded as tears filled her emerald eyes. "I just don't want you to worry about me."
"Sweetie, I worry about you more when you won't tell me what's wrong. Now, come on, tell me."
Jessie opened her mouth to speak but was interrupted by a knock on the door. I sighed and opened it to find Eric Bischoff standing in front of me.
"What can I do for you, Eric?"
"Vice wants a word with you, Paul and Ric immediately. Something about no REAL punches thrown tonight."
"Okay, I'll be there as soon as I can," I said and shut the door. "We'll talk as soon as I get back," I told Jessie and gave her a kiss.
Unfortunately after I left Vince's office, it was almost time for the show that night and I still hadn't gotten a chance to talk to Jessie.
As I headed out to the ring for my "contract signing" I noticed that she wasn't at gorilla position either.
I stood in the middle of the ring, only half-listening to what Bischoff, Teddy Long and Paul were all saying. But when it was time to take some action, I was one hundred percent there. The crowd went wild as I power bombed Paul through the table and signed RAW's contract.
I couldn't help but smile as everyone in the arena finally realized Evolution's end had come.
I walked back to my locker room to find Jessie sitting on the couch with her head in her hands. "You did great out there," she said, not looking up.
"Thanks, but I don't want to talk about that. Let's finish our conversation from this afternoon."
Jessie nodded and looked up at me. "The doctor's office called shortly after you left to go work out."
"And…" I said, pleading with her to continue.
"They told me something that will change our lives forever, Dave, and our relationship."
My heart stopped…forever? The worst came to mind. What if she had cancer? The thought of me losing her, was unbearable. But no matter what I would stick with her through everything. "You have to tell me, Jess. No more secrets."
"Yeah, I know. No more secrets," she said, taking a deep breath and releasing it slowly as I awaited the news. "I'm going to have a baby."
There it is. Hoped you like it. I know what you are all thinking: why in the hell would you end it like that? Well, I purposely didn't tell you Dave's reaction for the simple fact that it would ruin the sequel if I went ahead and told you now. I know exactly what I'm going to do; I just have to write it. But it probably won't get posted until next week because I'm going down to St. Louis to pay my good friend Randy Orton a visit. (Yeah, I wish) Anyway thanks for reading the story, my main focus will now be Never Alone, but knowing me I will probably have another one in the works pretty soon. Thanks!
