A/N: Leesie, this is for you! And I forgot to mention in the PM that I've been rocking out to Ludo over the entire weekend. I have a nice dance going on for Go-Getter Greg. Er…this will be a few-shot. Maybe one or two more chapters.
Melina turned around and gasped when she saw the man in front of her. "Why are you dressed like that?"
"Dressed like what?" the mystery man asked, cocking his head to the side.
"You're wearing a mask and a cape, and it's sort of freaking me out."
"I assure you, beautiful lady, that to scare you is not my intent." He was shocked at himself. How was it that he was able to speak to her so fluidly when in this disguise? Why was it so much easier since she didn't know his identity? She barely knew who he was when he was himself.
"Then what is your intent?"
"To make you fall in love with me."
Beth chortled, covering her mouth. "Aw, come on, Beth." She turned to him. "No, really, it's sweet. But can I at least know who you are first?"
"These are for you," he said, handing her the flowers.
When Melina outstretched her hand to grab them, she instead went for his mask. He backed away and laughed.
"Is this your attempt to be sly? I'm the sly one here. And if you want to know who I am, I demand a dinner date."
"A dinner date? Who says that?" Beth laughed, earning herself a light smack from Melina.
"Well, if you don't wish to go, then I suppose you will never find out my true identity."
"No!" Melina said. "I want to go! How about…tonight after the show?"
"That works splendidly. I have a match, though, but my opponent I shall not reveal to you. I will leave you in sweet splendor as you await our meeting later tonight." With a turn of his cape, he left the two ladies to conspire on their own.
"Who is that?" Beth asked, disgusted.
Melina let out a dreamy sigh. "I don't know…but he was great."
And for the rest of the day, all she could think about was her masked avenger.
Once he got back into his locker room, he took off his disguise and sat in front of the mirror.
"Who the hell am I kidding…" he sighed to himself. "That didn't sound like me at all. I sounded like some chivalrous nerd!"
He got ready in silence, repeating his meeting with Melina over and over in his mind. He had to get her out of his mind. Surely, his opponent would want revenge on him. After all, he had injured his opponent for the night before.
