Friends Forever

A/n: I love writing these. I'll do at least one more after this.

Chris was starring at a blank white wall in his locker room. He hadn't really been the same since Eddie'd died, his wrestling declined and he wasn't sleeping. Life without Eddie, for Chris, was hell on earth. He hated it. Right now Chris hated everything and everyone. They just accepted the fact that Chris wasn't over it yet and gave him his space. When they tried to talk to him, he snapped and literally ripped their heads off. Chris was mad at the world.

He was listening to the radio, well not really until he heard a certain song.

My old friend, I recall

The times we had hanging on my wall

I wouldn't trade them for gold

Cause they laugh and they cry me

Somehow sanctify me

Their woven in the stories I have told

And tell again

The memories, oh yes the memories. There were many memories of Eddie that had been floating in Chris's head for weeks, some good, some bad. Chris started to really cry, the first time since that RAW. Even then he hadn't let out his full emotions. Now he finally had.

My old friend, I apologize

For the years that have passed

Since the last time you and I

Dusted off those memories

But the running and the races

The people and the places

There's always somewhere else I had to be

Time gets slim, my old friend


Don't know why, don't know why

Don't know why, don't know why

Chris didn't know why Eddie had been taken. His best friend in the entire world. The only man he shared his personal life with. The only man who knew his every mood and how to chill him out.

My old friend, this song's for you

Cause a few a few simple verses

Was the least that I could do

To tell the world that you were here

Cause the love and the laughter

Will live long after

All of the sadness and the tears

We'll meet again, my old friend


Goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye


My old friend, my old friend

Goodbye, goodbye

Chris sighed. He realized he'd been acting like a child. Rey came in. He was going to try one more time to get through to Chris.

"Chris?" he asked uncertainly. He looked up and Rey saw the tears running non stop down his face. Rey sat next to him, he knew Chris had finally come through.

"Hey, its ok Chris, he's here. Remember, he's always watching us." Rey said soothingly. Chris nodded.

"Come on, everyone has been worried about you for weeks." Rey said, leading him out.

Eddie was up in heaven smiling. He knew that song would break through Chris's barriers. They'd always be friends and Eddie would always know how to pull Chris out of his little world if need be.

"Friends forever."
