I don't own Batista. I only own Mel. If there really is a Grand Madison Hotel somewhere, I never heard of it before...

CHAPTER 3: MEL CONFRONTS THE ANIMAL

Mel walked into the bedroom with a purpose. She knew exactly what she wanted and exactly how she would get it. The question was, should she walk into the bathroom and confront him, wait for him in the bedroom and let him walk in and find her, or hide in the closet and then jump out and surprise him?

As she was considering her options, a memory came back to her. A memory from the elevator. Batista's sexy voice rang in her ears...

"Little girl, I don't like it when chicks play games with me!"

Hiding in the closet and then jumping out to startle him would most definitely be a game. So, she thought, I'd better go with option one.

"So option one it is," she said aloud.

She looked down at what she was wearing and decided that her attire wasn't really something she could seduce Batista with. Not that he needs much of a seduction, anyway, she thought with a smile. He tried to seduce me first!

She quickly stripped off her clothes and left them in a pile near his closet. All she was wearing now was her underwear, which just happened to be some sexy lingerie. She walked over to the bathroom door and raised her hand to knock. What the hell am I going to knock for? I have to make a statement. Instead of knocking, she opened the door and walked boldly into the bathroom.

The water was still running. He was still in the shower. She could see the back of him through the sliding doors. She couldn't see it all since the glass sort of obstructed the view with the fancy designs it had, but it was still a pretty nice view. But I want the full view, she thought deviously, and before she knew it, she had gently pulled the sliding door open and was staring at the back of Batista's body.

Her eyes roamed over his tanned, muscular body and she grinned with appreciation. "Nice ass, Animal," she said in a smooth voice.

He turned around, not in the least bit shocked. "I knew you'd come back. You just couldn't resist me, could you?"

"Someone's being cocky, I see," she said in a subdued voice as she looked down to see what the Animal was packing. Oh my, he's freakin' huge! she screamed mentally.

He looked down at what she was looking at, then looked back up at her with an impish grin on his face. "Like what you see? It can be all yours tonight."

"It can be... Or it will be?" she countered. "Because I think it will be."

"Are you all talk or are you going to do something?" he asked, raising an eyebrow.

"Oh, I'll do something alright," she said coyly. She was unsure of what she was going to do, but she didn't want him to know that. "I'll do something just as soon as you get out of the shower."

"Why wait? Why don't you...come in?" he suggested, and before she could protest, he pulled her into the shower with him, lingerie and all. Before she really had the chance to get mad at him, he pushed her against the tiles and pressed himself against her, then leaned down and captured her lips for a hungry kiss.

She kissed him back, putting her arms around his neck and playing with the short hair at the nape of his neck. He lifted her up a little bit so that he could kiss her at a better angle, and she instinctively wrapped her legs around his waist. She didn't even care about the fact that her lingerie was getting ruined. She only cared about the feel of his muscular body, strong, hard, naked, and deliciously wet pressing so closely against hers...

"I think it's time," he whispered, trailing kisses from her lips to her neck. He sucked lightly on her neck for a minute, then went up to her ear. "It's definitely time..."

"For what?" she asked dumbly, too distracted by his naked body against her nearly-naked one to actually comprehend what she was saying.

"For me to unleash the animal," he said with a little smirk, and before she even knew what was happening, he picked her up and began carrying her out of the shower and into the bedroom...

A/N: I'm sorry it took me soooo long to update this story. I know this chapter is short (along with the other chapters) but I'm really focused on my Chris/Steph stories right now. I kind of lost my inspiration for the story since it was supposed to be a one shot anyway... Anyway, leave me a review and don't be afraid to tell me how much this chapter sucks, lol. I'll take the flames like a champion...
