Chapter 23 – Everything Changes
One month later.
"Sammie, can we talk?"
"Umm, sure," The young brunette smiled lightly, excusing herself from her friend's table and walking to the outside of the club with her boyfriend, "So, what's up?"
". . This isn't working," He blurted out with a sigh, wasting no time in saying what he truly thought.
Melissa let out a deep sigh of her own as Randy's words sunk in. Although she knew that this was definitely the truth, she hadn't wanted to say anything to him because she was still afraid that she'd lose him as a friend.
"I, I know," She whispered lightly, her eyes finding the floor.
"Hey," He smiled lightly, lifting her chin to look into his eyes, "I still care about you babe, it's just, I think that we were better off before, when we were . . . "
"Just friends?" Sammie interrupted, a small smirk growing on her face.
"Yeah," He nodded with a small laugh, "So, umm, are you okay with this?"
"Of course," She nodded with a sigh, "I know that things weren't working out for us so I'd rather end it now and still be friends than lose you forever . . . "
"You'll never lose me," Randy told her seriously, before giving her a hug.
Sending him a small smile, the pair began to make their way back into the club. Although they had just ended their relationship, neither of them seemed to regret it. They weren't made for each other so the best thing for them to do would be to go back being best friends again.
"So, are you going to talk to Inah?"
"What? I don't think so, she's with Ken now."
"And it's so obvious that she wants you," Sammie rolled her eyes.
"Huh? It is?" Randy asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Well, only if you talk to Ken . . . "
"Well, I would, but to be honest I'm kind of over him right now," She shrugged.
"Great, thanks for leaving me," The young man glared, causing his friend to grin innocently at him.
"You know I'm hear for ya, Randal," She shook her head, before the pair re-entered the building.
"Coddles, I still can't believe that in a few months we're going to be married," Melissa grinned widely as she sat on her fiancées lap admiring her engagement ring.
"I know, I can't believe it either," He added with a seriously tone and face.
"What?" The brunette added, turning to face him with a frown across her features.
"I think I've made a mistake . . . "
"Only joking, babe," He gave in with a grin, causing Melissa to send a sharp punch towards his arm, "Ouch!"
"Serves you right," She glared, before a small smile began to grow back across her features.
Cody returned with a smirk of his own, before placing a passionate kiss on his girlfriend's lips. He couldn't imagine life without her anymore because she really had given him so much to live for. Their baby would soon arrive in the world, and shortly after that they were going to be married. Right now, nothing could top what he was feeling, and it was all thanks to her.
"I love you, you know that right?" He asked quietly.
"Of course I do, Cody. I love you too," Melissa smiled back, before giving him yet another kiss.
"Ew, get a room," A voice interrupted, causing the pair to groan and finally pull away.
"Sammie . . . what do you want?" Melissa asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Well, how nice of you," The young brunette laughed lightly as she looked up to see Randy stood staring at Inah, waiting to make his move.
"Babe, something wrong?" Melissa asked, sensing something wasn't quite right.
"I, err, no, everything is fine. Randy and I are back to being friends again and everything is how it should be."
"Oh babe, I'm sorry," She added sympathetically.
"Nah, don't sweat it," Sammie shook her head, before the three began to talk about the up and coming wedding.
"So I was thinking that we could perhaps ask Vince for a week off or something? And then we could go away somewhere, ya know, just the two of us," Ken smiled lightly at his girlfriend.
"That would be great. I could really do with a break," Inah nodded with a tiresome sigh.
"Anywhere in particular you want to go?"
"Umm, Inah, can I talk to you for a minute please?" A deep voice interrupted the couple, causing the young woman's eyes to grow extremely wide.
"I'm a little busy at the minute, don't you see that?" She asked, her gaze not leaving Ken.
"Actually, this is really important," Randy added yet again with a sigh.
"Yo man, what's your problem?" Ken asked with a raised eyebrow, "Didn't you just hear what Inah said?"
"My problem, Ken," Randy began, a glare beginning to grow across his features, "Is that I'm in love with your girlfriend . . . "
"So Danni, you gonna tell us who this mystery guy is?" Tiff asked with a grin.
"No, you can wait and see who it is," The brunette replied, poking out her tongue, "He should be here any minute now."
"You've said that for about half an hour now," Sarah added with a glare.
"Shut up, smarty pants," Danni replied with a grin as she watched Sarah and Chris snuggling together. "I'm so glad you two made things up,"
"Me too, Danni, me too," Chris added, causing the group to laugh lightly. "I'm going to get us another round, what does everyone want?" He asked, standing up from his seat after placing a kiss on Sarah's forehead.
"Hmm, same again please," Danni smiled.
"Whatever you're having," Sarah grinned lightly.
When Chris didn't receive an answer, the group turned to the small brunette to see her staring into space, or so they thought until they turned to the direction she was staring to see none other than John Cena stood at the bar.
"Tiff?" Chris asked again, finally bringing her from her trance.
"What drink do you want?"
"Oh, erm, I'm good for now thanks," She added with a small smile.
"Okay," The blonde man nodded, before walking away to the bar.
"Tiff, seriously, when are you gonna wake up?" Sarah asked with a raised eyebrow.
"What are you talking about?"
"You and John!" Danni sighed. "Come on, it's obvious that neither of you can hack being just friends, so why the hell don't you just tell him how you truly feel about him?"
"Because . . . I'm afraid," The young brunette added quietly.
"Because I don't want to lose him," She sighed, looking up at her two friends.
"You won't lose him, Tiffy," Sarah smiled lightly, "He loves you, all you have to do is tell him that you love him back and you'll both live happily ever after."
"Yeah right, if only it were that simple,"
"But it is!" Danni added with a sigh.
"Alright, can we just drop this please? I didn't come here to get lectured. So Danni, where is your guy?"
"Hey girls . . . " A voice added, causing Tiff's and Sarah's eyes to grow extremely wide as they turned to look at the familiar man behind them.
"Here," Danni laughed at her friend's expressions, "Hey babe."
"Hey," The man grinned back, walking over and giving her a kiss.
"But what? How? When?" Sarah asked, completely confused.
"Well, about a month ago we bumped into each other and seeing as we'd given each other some time to cool down we could talk to each other pretty reasonably. We decided to be friends, and well, a few nights ago he asked me out for tonight," She shrugged as he sat down next to her, wrapping his arm around her waist.
"Aww, Danni!" Tiff and Sarah squealed in unison.
"I'm so happy for you both," Tiff grinned brightly.
"Thanks babe," Danni laughed lightly, before turning to Dave beside her.
"So Mr. Bautista, you don't plan on asking for sex tonight, do you?" She asked with a grin.
"Hmm, I don't know, depends how it goes," He replied with a wink and a small chuckle, "But seriously Danni, I don't. I'm not that man anymore. I'm a better one now, thanks to you."
"Well, what can I say?" The young brunette laughed.
Shaking his head lightly, Dave moved towards the brunette and placed a long awaited kiss on her lips. Thanks to Danni he had changed into a much better man, and he couldn't even imagine going back to how he used to be. Thanks to her, the woman who he was quickly falling in love with, everything had changed.
