An Unwanted Visitor
"I was looking for you," Chris said quietly.
Stephanie leaned against the door, casually inspecting her perfect nails, then looked up at him and spoke. "I've been right here."
"Why weren't you in your usual spot? That would've made finding you a hell of a lot easier."
"And where's my usual spot, if you don't mind me asking?"
He grinned at her, and she knew then that he was going to say something mean and insulting. "On the corner of Main street, duh!" he exclaimed. "By the way, your customers are looking for you, too. You might want to let them know that you're not going to be on the corner anymore..."
"Oh shut up," she said, shoving him lightly. She couldn't help smiling even though he had just insulted her. Something about him, about being with him, always made her smile... They started walking down the hallway together, headed for his locker room. There was a comfortable silence between the two, and then she broke the silence and spoke. "So, um... Did you think about what Daddy said at the meeting yesterday? About coming up with another plan?"
"Yes, I thought about it...all night, as a matter of fact," he said with a little sigh. They reached his locker room and he opened the door for her. "Ladies first," he said with a shrug when she eyed him curiously. He let her walk in before him, then walked in after her and locked the door.
"Why are you locking the door?" she asked, although she already knew the answer.
"We need our privacy, don't you agree?" he asked, grabbing her hand and walking over to the couch, sitting down, and pulling her down onto his lap. "We wouldn't want anyone walking in on us and catching you on your knees, would we?"
"You mean catching you on your knees?" she countered, making herself comfortable on his lap as she straddled him. "Because if anyone's getting on their knees in here, it's going to be you when you're going down on me...and you love going down on me, don't you?"
He smirked at her and kissed her lightly on the lips. "Yeah, you're right," he admitted softly when he pulled away. "I do love going down on you..."
"I know," she said, blushing and looking away.
"Are you blushing, Miss McMahon?" he taunted, taking her chin in his hand and gently turning her face back so he could look at her. She looked at him and looked away quickly again, and he laughed, delighted that he had that effect on her. "You are blushing!"
"Shut up, Jericho," she said, trying not to blush, but she knew her face was turning red. "We have to think of a plan, remember? So why don't we get started on that?"
"You sure you want to think of a plan right now?" he asked, giving her a knowing look as his hands rested on her hips again. "Because...you're sitting on my lap, and I know there are a lot of other things we could be doing right now..." He leaned close to her and kissed her near her ear, then kissed her on her neck where he knew she loved to be kissed. "There are a lot of things I'd rather be doing to you..."
"Chris... We really do need to think of a plan," she said, closing her eyes and already knowing that she was going to give in to him. The feel of his soft lips on her skin was intoxicating to her, and she could never find it in herself to resist him... If she was honest with herself, she knew she didn't ever want to resist him...
"Mmmm, after... We can think of a plan after we're through..." His voice trailed off as he kissed her fully, pulling her even closer to him and locking his arms securely around her waist. "Why didn't you come to my room last night, babe?" he murmured against her lips.
"I don't know, I guess I was too preoccupied thinking about this stupid thing with Hunter," she murmured back, breaking the kiss to run her hands beneath his shirt. She ran her hands over his muscular chest and sighed in satisfaction, then pulled his shirt off and threw it on the floor. Her eyes ran lustfully over his exposed upper body before she looked back into his eyes. "Have you been working out more or something?"
"The only working out I do is with you...wherever we happen to be when we go at it," he joked, before kissing her again. His hands traveled up and down her back until they finally rested on her butt...and then there was a knock at the door. "Ignore it," he said, before continuing to kiss her.
She tried to ignore it, but found that she couldn't quite do that because the person on the other side of the door was being awfully persistent. The knocking got louder and louder until finally she pulled away from him. "It would be easier to just see who it is and what they want... The faster we do that, the faster we can get back to what we were doing..."
"Fine," he replied, grabbing his shirt from the floor and slipping it on, but he wasn't very happy with that decision.
She walked over to the door, fixing her hair so it wouldn't look so out of place that whoever was on the other side of the door could figure out what she and Chris had been up to. After all, their whole little...whatever it was that they had... It was a secret that no one was supposed to know about. She looked over at Chris. "How do I look?"
"Sexy as hell... Just ignore it and come back over here," he teased. She narrowed her eyes at him and he sighed. "You look fine, Princess. No one's going to know what we were about to do..." And no one's ever going to know, because you're always going to want us to be a secret... He sighed again and spoke. "I'm serious. You look fine."
Satisfied with his answer, she plastered a fake smile on her face and opened the door...and her smile melted right off her face when she saw who it was.
"Well, well, well... Didn't expect to find you here," Hunter said with a smirk. He looked at the nameplate on the door, then back at Stephanie. "But I guess it shouldn't be a big surprise... This is Chris Jericho's locker room, after all..."
Chris was at Stephanie's side in seconds, giving Hunter an icy look. "What the hell do you want?" he demanded, glaring at the taller man.
"I just came to shoot the breeze with you, man," Hunter said, holding his hands up a little. "I mean, we're boys, right?"
"Yeah fucking right," Chris scoffed, stepping protectively in front of Stephanie when he saw Hunter giving her the eye. "You might as well just get to the point already, man, because you and I aren't friends and we never will be, and you know why."
"Fine, if that's the way you're going to be," Hunter said with a scowl.
"You're damned right that's the way I'm going to be, after the way you treated her," Chris said with a nod in Stephanie's direction.
"Face it, Jericho, she's a bitch. She might seem like she's some great person to you, but she'll turn on you in the blink of a fucking eye," Hunter said, gesturing at Stephanie. "And what do you mean, after the way I treated her? I only treated her the way a bitch deserves to be treated."
"Don't call her a bitch," Chris warned, fists clenching in anger.
"Why, does that bother you? You don't like her, so it shouldn't matter if I call her a bitch," Hunter said with a scoff. "Unless... Oh wait, I see... Maybe you do have feelings for the little princess... Is that why it always bothered you when I was with her?"
"Just leave," Stephanie spoke up, coming from around Chris to stand next to him. "Chris and I are trying to talk business and you're wasting our time."
"Trying to talk business or trying to have a quickie?" Hunter asked, giving them a knowing look. Stephanie's eyebrows raised in surprise, and he laughed. "You think I don't know what you two have been up to, or what you two were doing back when we were together? You think I don't know where you were going, Stephanie, whenever you snuck out of our room at night saying that you wanted to go for a walk?"
"Maybe if you treated her right she wouldn't have been sneaking out of the room," Chris pointed out. "Maybe she wouldn't have had to come to me and tell me all her problems about how much of a jackass you were."
"You don't even know the whole story, Jericho," Hunter said with a roll of his eyes. "You don't know it at all."
"You're a jackass, you always have been and you always will be. What more is there to know?" Chris asked smartly.
"Fine, be that way," Hunter said, scowling again. "But just so you know, you two aren't going to be able to think of a storyline quick enough... We're all going to be in this together, no matter how much neither of you like it..." His voice trailed off as he looked Stephanie up and down and grinned. "It might be fun to take a ride on the Stephanie Express again... You were always a hellcat in bed..."
"Get the fuck out of here," Chris ordered him, feeling himself getting angrier and angrier. "Just get the fuck out of here before I do something that I regret."
"Sleeping with that piece of roadkill is something you're going to regret, when she gives you crabs," Hunter said with a snicker, backing away as he looked at Stephanie. He turned his back on them and started walking down the hall. "So when you have a nasty little itch down there, don't come running to tell me, because all I'm going to say is 'I told you so,'" he called over his shoulder.
"I'm going to kick his ass right now," Chris snapped, starting to follow him, but Stephanie grabbed his arm to hold him back. "What?"
"He's... It's not worth it," she said after a minute. "Just let him go and save it for the ring."
"But all that stuff he just said about you, you're just going to let it go? I could kick his ass right now!" he argued.
"No, just save it for when you have to get in the ring with him. Don't stoop to his level, that's just what he wants you to do," she told him. She pulled him back into his locker room and shut and locked the door. "Now come on, weren't we in the process of thinking of a plan?"
"Actually..." His voice trailed off and he smirked at her. Pushing her against the door, he stepped up to her, lips just mere inches away from hers. "Actually, we were in the middle of a little something, remember?"
"I remember, but we really do need to think of a plan," she insisted. She looked down at his lips, then back up into his eyes and knew that she wouldn't be able to resist him. It was always that way... She'd never be able to get over the infatuation she had with him. "But I guess that can wait until after..."
He smirked again and licked his lips. "I knew you'd see things my way..."
