Pairing: Alex Shelley/CM Punk
Disclaimer: The wrestlers belong to themselves.
Summary: Colt Cabana's reaction when he finds Alex Shelley in his hotel room.
I am shocked at what I see when I walk into the hotel room I'm sharing with Punk.
On Punk's bed I see him with his head on Alex Shelley's bare stomach, and both look like they're sleeping. Alex is the last person that I would expect him to let in past his walls, but apparently he has.
I'll talk to him later about it, but I don't want to wake him up now. I change and go to sleep; we can discuss what's going on tomorrow.
What feels like 15 minutes later, but was actually 3 hours later from looking at our travel clock, I'm woken up by voices on the other side of the room. It sounds like Alex is concerned I'm going to kick his ass for being there. I'll kick his ass if he hurts Punk, but not for trying to start a relationship with him. I'll also kick Alex's ass if he is just using Punk and is not interested in having a relationship with him.
I knew that Punk was bi, but I didn't know that Alex was. He hasn't always made the best choices as far as partners go, and had vowed not to get involved again, but it looks like that vow had been thrown out the window. I'm hoping that it doesn't end up adding more emotional scars.
I'm trying to go back to sleep when I hear something that catches my attention: Punk saying that he loves me as a friend but not as a lover. I already knew that, but apparently Alex didn't and assumed he was intruding on our relationship. No, if that were the case, he wouldn't be here. Punk is very faithful, and definitely wouldn't cheat on me if we had a romantic relationship instead of a deep friendship. I don't know why Alex is here, but I know that the only sleeping together that is going on over there is literal.
I just wish that they would either be more quiet or go back to sleep so I can. I finally end up telling them to shut up so I can go back to sleep and drift off after a quiet "sorry" from Punk.
Tomorrow is soon enough to talk about what is going on between them.
