A/N: For the record, this really does go against everything I believe in.
Sunny, you're lucky I loved you.
But you asked for it, and I apologize if some things get a little…unnecessary. But hey, the more girls I turn off to Ted, the better.
"Sunny, I'm not trying to make your decisions for you or run your life, but Ted is a bad kid," Shawn explained to the young Diva.
"But I love him," Sunny frowned. She gave him the same expression that she would give anyone else, except Shawn, if they used her birth name of Sunny. She was more accustomed to the name "Serena" that she used in the ring. Also, it was what most of her coworkers called her. The wrestlers tended to call each other by their ring names. The Undertaker was called "Undertaker" backstage, just like Edge was referred to as "Edge." So it was a rarity that Sunny ever heard her birth name at work, unless it was with Shawn, whom she considered a father figure.
"You're too young to know what love is," Shawn fumed, tossing his hands in the air.
"I am not!" Sunny whined, stomping her feet.
"See? Your immaturity just proves my point."
Sunny took a few deep breaths, trying to calm herself down. She tugged on her shirt to straighten out her clothing. "You know what, Shawn? You can think what you'd like. However, it is Ted and my ten month anniversary. Nothing you can think or say will bring me down."
Shawn snorted. "Good luck. Just don't come crying to me when the kid breaks your heart."
"Trust me, I won't because it won't happen," Sunny said with an arched eyebrow before turning around and stomping off in her heels to meet Ted.
"Girl should've gone out with Orton when she had the chance," Shawn whispered and rolled his eyes as he watched Sunny leave.
It was a perfect evening for anything. The dark clear sky was just beginning to show the stars. A perfect evening, a perfect situation, and a perfect opportunity.
"Ready to go?" Sunny asked as she saw Ted. He was leaning against the doorway in jeans and a black, untucked dress shirt with his hands in his front pockets.
"Not exactly," Ted sighed, not meeting her eyes.
"Is there something wrong?" Sunny asked.
"I guess you could say that."
"Well, what is it?"
Ted pursed his lips. Throughout their entire conversation, Ted refused to look at her.
"Are you going to tell me or just stand there?"
Ted took a deep breath and glanced as Sunny. "Sunny…"
Ted could see Sunny shudder at the mention of her birth name. "Sorry, Serena…I don't know how to tell you this, but…"
"Just say it," Sunny shrugged. She was attempting to mentally prepare herself for this. She knew he was going to break up with her. She just knew it.
"I can't really…be with you any more," Ted said, keeping his eyes firmly on the ground with his arms crossed over his chest.
Even though she was prepared for it, tears fell from her eyes. "So, after ten months, you're just going to dump me like that?"
"Not just like that…The whole time we've been together…How do I put this? I'm kind of with another girl."
Sunny's eye reduced to slits as she glared at the man in front of her. "With someone else?"
"I've been with her for a while. We've been engaged and are set to be married at the end of the year."
Sunny started shaking with anger. "I swear on my life that if I could walk without falling over, I'd walk right up to you and slap you."
Ted shrugged. "Hey, I hear Orton's available."
Sunny let out a disgruntled shriek and she stormed away. She passed Shawn, who was watching the ordeal from down the hall.
"Told you," Shawn said, trying not to taunt her.
