A/n: I know, it's been like FOREVER since I've updated this story, and I'm extremely sorry to all of my dedicated fans who have supported it from the start. I recently had some serious family issues that demanded all my attention for a while and after that school began kicking my ass so between family drama and school I barely had enough time to breathe let alone sleep. But I'm back now, and MUCH better hopefully so let's get this story back on track all right? Thanks.

Dedication: This chapter is dedicated to ALL the amazing people who have reviewed, PM'd, alerted, faved, and read this story and have been waiting patiently (and some not so patiently) for me to return. You guys ROCK for sticking with me and coming back to pick things up where we left off :D

Warning: This chapter contains some sexual nature so if you're not okay with that then you might wanna skip over this one.

Chapter 9

I stood to the side with one hand stuffed in my pocket, while the other held the vanilla ice cream cone I was licking that Adam had purchased me from a street kart just a few minutes earlier. I watched in amusement as he did his whole 'celebrity' thing and signed some little kid's autograph book. I found it completely adorable how great Adam was with kids-- he even gave the little boy free tickets to that 'Royal Rumble' thing Ricky hasn't stopped talking about.

"Hey, see you at the Rumble kid." Adam waved goodbye to the little boy and his mother as the two walked off back towards their car which wasn't parked along with a few other cars - Adam's included - in the parking lot, not too far away from where we were standing.

I smiled as Adam approached, stuffing his red ballpoint back into his jeans pocket. He smiled back and wrapped a long arm around my shoulder, pulling me close as we continued our perfect stroll through the park.

"So you just keep a spare set of those things in your pocket huh?" I inquired, letting Adam have a lick of my cone since he had long since devoured his.

"Yeah. Whenever I go out in public and I meet a kid as cute as that, I sometimes give them a pair," he told me as we found ourselves hidden away from the rest of society as we ducked between the tall birch, and oak trees.

I'd run through these trees a plenty of times before after Ricky when he was younger and he decided to go exploring when I brought him here. Over that time I'd become familiar with these little perfect secluded places that was practically hidden from everywhere else who didn't know just exactly where to look through all the bushes and evergreen. However, besides Ullie and my son, I had never brought anyone else here. I considered this place... a sanctuary. But Adam, he was important to me, I didn't feel like my space had been violated, or intruded. I felt... comforted with him here with me.

"I slipped a set under Ricky's pillow for the three of you - you don't mind, do you?"

I looked at him in shock. I'd been struggling with trying to get those tickets for, like, ever, and like a knight in cowboy boots, and ripped jeans, Adam swoops in and saves the day. He was too amazing sometimes.

Adam apparently mistook my silence for ungratefulness. "'Cause if you do I could totally..."

"Thank you," I said quickly, cutting him off. "You are... amazing."

Adam smiled as he leaned down and pecked me once on the lips. "I prefer Mr. Awesome, but, that works too."

I chuckled and elbowed him lightly in the ribs as we came to the clearing I'd been leading us towards— my quiet place. Littered across the clearing were a few old wooden swings, an old, rusted jungle gym that hadn't been used in ages, and California's most amazing section of daffodils, and hibiscus. When I came here for the first time and saw these beautiful plants on the very of death, I thought it would be a waste to just let them die like that, so I came back once or twice a week to water them.

"Wow, this place is amazing," Adam said, bewildered, as I led him over to bench that sat in front of a railing, giving us a view of the beautiful waterfall that wasn't too far off from here.

We sat down and I brought my legs up onto the bench and nuzzled into Adam warmth. He rested his chin on the top of my head and we just sat in a perfect, blissful silence for a long moment. I listened to his heart beat, and felt his chest rise and fall with every perfect breath he took. I couldn't believe that this man was actually able to flawlessly portray his alter ego of 'Edge' on television. Adam Copeland was the complete definition of the perfect man.

What did I do to deserve a guy like him?

"I really wish you'd come," Adam murmured as he kissed the top of my head.

I sighed softly. "Believe me Adam, I want to so bad. But..."

"I know, I know - Ricky." Adam sighed as well. "I feel incredibly selfish for even giving you this option. I set myself up for disappointment, it's just... I know we haven't been dating for very long—not even a week in fact—but it's just... just something about you. I don't feel the same way about you like I've felt about anybody else."

I smiled as I gently pushed myself off Adam and looked into his angelic face. He was nervous; I could see the worry creased across his forehead. I gave him a gentle smile before I leaned forward and kissed him, as deeply, and as passionately as I possibly could, and for a second, the whole world just seemed to stop moving, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. It was almost as if something in my gut was kicking me, telling me not to let this one slip away.

'What do you want to do Maddy?' Ullie's words rang in my head. I knew what I wanted to do all along, but I just couldn't bring myself to take that risk before. But now, I felt like I was ready. I needed to, for once, just stop being so afraid of being out of control, and to just, jump in head first. Maybe I'll fall, maybe I won't, but I'll never know if I never try right?

"Yes," I said as I broke the lip lock between Adam and me.

"Huh?" he whispered, still sounding a little mesmerized by the kiss, and I didn't blame him for that.

"I said yes," I repeated with a giggle. "I'll take the job."

Adam's eyes suddenly lit up. "You will?! But... wha... what about Ricky?"

"Ricky has Ullie, and I'll talk to him everyday, and see him as much as possible, and more than that," I answered easily.

Besides her language usage, Ullie was practically almost the perfect Godmother. She knew my son just as well as I did, and she'd been there for me ever since I first found out I was pregnant so I had nothing but faith in my best friend.

"Maddy, are you sure about this? I don't want to rush into this because you think that I'm pushing you or anything like that. If you come, I want it to be because you want to."

I smiled and nodded my head vigorously. "I really, really do, Adam. If... you want me to come that is."

"Are you kidding? Of course I want you to come! Nothing would make me happier!" Adam exclaimed, cupping my face in his hands as he placed a kiss on my lips, then another, and another. "It'll be great! You can meet Randy, and Amy, and... all my other friends in the company!"

I laughed and nodded before saying, "That sounds great."

"You're amazing," Adam whispered as he rested his forehead against mine.

"I prefer, Mr. Awesome," I replied. He chuckled before he pressed his lips against mine once more. "You... should probably... call... Vince," I muttered between kisses, yet, when Adam pulled away, I could help but whine.

He laughed before he kissed me once more then reached into his pocket to fish out his cell phone. "Are you sure about this?" he asked as he dialed what I guessed to be Vince McMahon's phone number but didn't hit send just yet.

I gave him a confident smile and a single nod. "Where do I sign?"

"Party, party, partay. Party, party, partay." I sighed heavily as I watched Ullie prance around the room doing her little happy dance.

She was taking the news of my departure worse than I thought actually. I'd expected balloons and a parade by now. I pick such great friends don't I?

Ricky sat in my lap, he hadn't stopped gushing about the fact that I would be going on the road with Adam either. I thought he would think that I was completely selfish and that I didn't love him anymore and I was abandoning him - which was so far from the truth that it wasn't even remotely funny - but he was taking it expertly.

"Wait until Billy finds out that my mom is going on the road with Edge! Mom, can I go over to Billy's house tomorrow?"

I giggled softly and nodded. "Sure sweetie. You can go wherever you want tomorrow."

"Even the Grand Canyon?" Ricky asked, excited.

"Um... maybe we should keep it in a close-to-home range for now," I replied, kissing him on the forehead.

"So, when are you leaving?" Ullie asked, sitting down in the armchair in front of us.

"Wednesday. Vince is gonna let me get everything straightened away here first before I come down. He was even nice enough to agree to let Adam stay behind and help me get everything I need packed up and ready to go. I think he has a soft spot for single moms."

Ullie smirked. "Well... for him to be such a geezer, he is kinda cute."

I frowned in disgust. "Ew! Ull he's like older than your dad."

"What? Old guys need love too, Madeline. God, you're so discriminatory."

I laughed before I picked Ricky up into my arms, "And on that note – its bedtime. Ricky, say goodnight to Aunt Ullie."

"Goodnight, Aunt Ullie."

"Goodnight sweetie. Give Aunt Ullie a kiss." Ricky and I both frowned as Ullie proceeded to smother my son in her lipstick.

"Ull, I would appreciate if you wouldn't smother my child in your Mocha Cappuccino lipstick, 'kay?" I argued as I began wiping the sides of Ricky's face that was smeared with Ullie's make-up.

"Oh get the dick out of your butt, already," Ullie groaned as she walked of into the kitchen.

"Langu - oh, forget it." I sighed before I turned off the light in the living room and carried Ricky upstairs off to bed. Once he was perfectly tucked underneath his sheets drifting off into unconsciousness, I carefully reached behind his pillow and felt around until I found exactly what I was looking for. I smiled as I retrieved the tiny tickets to front-row seats to the WWE's Royal Rumble Pay-per-view event. I placed on of them down on the nightstand beside Ricky's bed before I quietly tip-toed across the room, shut of the light, and closed the door behind me on my way out before I headed off down the hall to my own bedroom.

As I stripped down to my briefs and settled in under my satin sheets. I rested my head against the pillow and closed my eyes, and just as I was about to go to sleep, I heard an annoying rumbling coming from close by. My eyes snapped open and I rolled over to find the source of the noise keeping me from sleeping was my cell phone which was put on vibrate. I reached over and grabbed it, then smiled as the picture of Adam flashed on the screen.

"Hello?" I answered.

"Okay, I may be risking being completely clingy and you changing your mind about me but... would you mind me sleeping over?"

I quickly propped myself up on one of my elbows. "Well, of course you can stay but, Adam, your hotel is like ten blocks away from here in town." I heard him chuckle and I knew instantly that he was up to something. "Adam, where are you?"

"Look out your window and find out."

I frowned in confusion but threw the sheets off me and slid out my bed over to the window, and sure enough, standing on my lawn in nothing but a pair of jeans was Adam, smiling at me. "Hey, beautiful."

I laughed and gave him an incredulous stare. "What are you doing down there?"

"Well, I figured that if you said no that I'd serenade you from outside your window until you had to let me in... or called the cops - whichever came first."

"You're insane," I whispered in response.

"Yeah, probably. So... you gonna let me in?"

I giggled before I closed my window and quietly tip-toed out of my room and downstairs. Ullie's room was right down the hall from mine so I did a quick check inside and she was already fast asleep. By the time I opened the front door, Adam was standing there with his hands stuffed in his pockets, grinning.

"Top of the morning to ya."

I chuckled quietly and shook my head. "Get in here."


"So this is your room huh?" Adam inquired as he moved over to my dresser and picked up a picture of Ricky and myself. He smiled as he looked at the portrait before he gently - and thankfully quietly - placed it back down on the dresser. "It's just what I expected."

"And what did you expect?" I asked, sitting on my legs on my bed.

"Clean, orderly, pretty much you."

I gasped. "Are you inclining that I am boring, Adam Copeland?"

"Well, how about you prove me wrong then?" Adam wiggled his eyebrows at me and I instantly felt my cheeks flush red. "Are-are you blushing?"

"No," I retorted quickly.

"You're blushing," Adam chuckled lowly as he walked over and sat down in front of me on the bed. "I was just kidding, babe. We don't have to do anything that you don't want to do, all right?"

"Yeah," I replied. "I know."

I then pushed him down on the bed and straddled his waist. Adam sharp intake of breath as he went over, and the stunned look on his face as he lied under me on the bed proved my point. He smiled before he grabbed the back of my neck and pulled me down to crush my lips against his. For some odd reason, his lips still tasted like vanilla ice cream from earlier - I didn't want to stop tasting them.

I shrieked as in an instant Adam rolled us over and was now hovering over me. He made sure not to press his full weight on me though. He smirked wickedly at me before his began sucking at my neck for the second time today. I gasped when I felt his teeth gently sink in. It hurt, but it was a good type of pain.

Adam pushed his hips forward, rubbing his crotch against mine and I sharply inhaled as a jolt of pleasure shot through my body. "Adam..." I moaned. "Are you wearing underwear?"

Adam smirked before his hands traveled down and unbuttoned his jeans. He pushed them down from his waist and tossed them off to the side, leaving him completely naked above me. "That would be a no."

I looked at his fully erect cock that was now resting atop my briefs and smiled. "Good."

He kissed his way down from my neck to my torso, taking the time to gently suck and nibble on each of my nipples before he moved down further to my abdomen. I think my eyes may have rolled back in my head when he sucked on my sensitive navel, I know that I was moaning, and failing to try and keep it down so that neither Ullie nor Ricky woke up.

"Let's get rid of these," Adam murmured as he grabbed the waistband of my underwear and gently pulled them down. I lifted up my legs to help him get them easier. He tossed them to the side and grinned seductively at my fully nude body. "Where's Ricky and Ullie?" he whispered.

"Right down the hall."

"Oh, well, you might wanna try to keep quiet." Without another word Adam grabbed my stiff member and wrapped his lips around the swollen head. I was sure now my eyes had rolled to the back of my skull as my back arched and my hands traveled down and ran through Adam's sandy locks.

I moaned as quietly as I possibly could as Adam worked his expert tongue over my - I just realized - very neglected shaft. He quickly moved to take the full length in his mouth and feeling my cock at the back of his throat I swear was nearly enough to send me over the edge (no pun intended) right then and there.

I panted heavily and clawed at the sheets to stifle my sounds as Adam bobbed his head up and down on my shaft as he began sucking it harder. Eventually my hips began moving in sink with him as they bucked forward every time that he went down.

"Adam," I moaned out his name softly.

I could feel him smiling around my cock as I grew closer and closer to my peaking point. Adam continued to work me over until finally, I felt an incredible sensation wash over my entire body as I climaxed. I could still feel Adam's warmth around my mouth so I knew that he must have swallowed.

Finally, Adam took my softening member out of his mouth and kissed his way back up my torso. When he finally came up to kiss me, I could taste the saltiness of my cum inside his mouth so my suspicions were confirmed. We finally fell back into the sheets, panting.

"Wow..." Adam wheezed. "That was fun."

I propped myself up on my elbow and raised an eyebrow at him. He didn't really think that this was over did he.

He gasped as once again I was straddling his waist. His hands instantly gripped my hips as I moved down to begin trailing kisses from his lips down to his jaw, then further down to his neck and torso. When I came face to face with his impressive shaft, I wondered just how exactly I was going to do this. I hadn't been with very many guys, and it seemed that all the guys that worked for the WWE seemed to all have dicks that were on the much larger side of the ruler.

"Maddy," Adam whispered after my brief hesitation. "You don't have to..."

I winked at him before I grabbed his throbbing cock. I noticed that a little precum was now lightly coating my fingers. I've never before tasted cum, or precum for that matter, before, but since he did it, maybe it wouldn't be so bad. I hesitantly lifted my finger up to my mouth and sucked Adam juices off. Hump, it wasn't terrible.

I looked up into his eyes and I saw nothing but lust, and desperation. Deciding not to torture him anymore, I moved down and wrapped my lips around the head of Adam's cock, flicking my tongue of the slit which enticed a low growl to rip from Adam's throat.

"Fuuck," he moaned all low and throaty as he began softly stroking his fingers through my arm.

I smiled as I blew around the head of Adam's cock before I felt him buck his hips forward, sending his cock a little deeper down my throat. I felt the tiny prickle of Adam's pubic hair at the base of Adam's cock tickling my nose as I forced myself to take as much of him in my mouth as possible. I hummed around his thick length which Adam rewarded me with another low groan. I glanced up and saw Adam with his head lolled back biting his lip and I couldn't help but laugh, sending the vibrations tingling down his cock.

I began bobbing my head up and down faster and quickly after that Adam lost it. He moaned as he began thrusting his hips up sending his cock further down my throat. I surprised myself even when I felt his head hit the back of my throat and I didn't automatically begin choking.

"Maddy... that feels..." Adam broke off into a loud moan and I new all inhibitions about keeping it quiet had long since been thrown out of the window for him.

Realizing that I needed to finish this up before Ullie, or worst, Ricky, heard all the commotion we were making, I moved up, gently scraping my teeth against the flesh of Adam cock before I moved back up to blow on the swollen pink head before I swiped my tongue of the slit, lapping up a little more of Adam's precum. He groaned even louder before his gently guided my head back down, sending me all the way down until my nose was buried in his pubes.

"Baby... I'm gonna... come."

I quickly moved my head up to send another quick lick between the slit in Adam's cock, and, with a low, throaty growl, I felt Adam arch off the bed and his cock do a little deeper down my throat as his hot fluids began running down my throat. I swallowed as much as I could, not really disturbed all that much by the taste. After about three more spurts of cum from his cock Adam finally began calming down, and I felt his cock being softening in my mouth.

I took it out and watch it fall limply against his abs as I kissed my way back up all the way to his lips. He smiled at me before his passionately brought his lips to mine, tasting his own spunk in the process. Finally, I rolled over, the both of us panting much heavier this time, and cuddled up into his side as he wrapped an arm around me.

"That was... incredible," he panted holding me close to him."You're incredible."

I smiled softly as I ran my hands over his sweaty, glistening torso. "Thanks, you're not so bad yourself."
