Ted couldn't help but smile when he saw Paxton. She was standing there looking like a dwarf compared to Janelle and she was smiling at him. His stomach filled with butterflies and he stood up to greet them.
Paxton almost wanted to squeal when she walked in and saw him. He was as cute as ever, possibly even cuter. He stood up and waved them over. She glanced at Cody who was giving Janelle a look similar to the one Ted was giving her. She laughed a little, since he and Janelle 'weren't boyfriend and girlfriend'.
"Hey ladies, looking good." Cody said as they approached.
"Don't we?" Janelle asked confidently before she slid in next to her not boyfriend.
"Hey you." Paxton said poking her index finger into the middle of Ted's chest.
"Hi." he said allowing her to scoot in before sitting next to her.
"Are you hungry?" he asked
"Do you even know me?" Paxton asked with a laugh.
"You're right, silly question." he said leaning over and placing a quick kiss on her cheek.
Cody and Janelle stopped their whispering to look at the menu.
"Ted, they have one pound burgers here!" Cody exclaimed suddenly, causing a few people to look at them.
"That's gross. Is that what you are gonna get Pax?" Ted asked a sly smile playing on his lips.
"Oh ha ha Dibiase. You're one hilarious guy." Paxton said digging an elbow into her boyfriends side.
"Paxton, I love you but I wouldn't be shocked if you got that burger." Janelle said
"See?! Now go elbow her in the side." Ted said rubbing his ribs.
"No, I like her more." Paxton said shrugging and looking back down at her menu.
After they ordered and the food arrived conversation turned to the upcoming overseas tour.
"You're coming, right?" Janelle asked looking at Paxton.
"Umm…I'm not sure." Paxton said quickly and quietly.
"What? Why not?" Ted asked his head snapping in her direction.
"Well, it corresponds with the day that Scott leaves for college and I want to be there..soo…"
Ted's face fell and despite his efforts he couldn't hide his disappointment.
"That's understandable." he said dully.
"You need to come, where else am I gonna find a beautiful girl to massage me?" Cody asked
"I'll massage you." Janelle said.
"Yeah, but Paxton knows what she's doing."
Janelle elbowed Cody and rolled her eyes playfully.
Paxton could sense that Ted was disappointed, she looked at him, his eyes trained on his plate and she was reminded of when she first encountered him. She nudged his side and interlocked her hand in his.
"It's only two weeks." she whispered, leaning in close to him and taking in his scent.
"I know, it's okay. You need to be there with Scott." he said glancing at her and flashing a smile.
After lunch the couples separated. Cody and Janelle headed off to the hotel to engage in their favorite past time and Ted and Paxton went off shopping for Scott's going away present.
"I want to get him something he'll like but something he'll need and use. What did you want-need-use in college?" Paxton asked as they walked down the sidewalk.
"Hmm. A mini fridge?"
"He already has one."
"Bummer." Ted sighed and wrapped his arm around Paxton's waist. He hated himself for feeling so disappointed. She was right, it was only two weeks and he didn't want her to give up her life for him. But from a selfish stand point the wanted her to come with him.
"He was pouting today when we went shopping."
"Oh yeah? Why?"
"He doesn't want to go. He wants to stay with the WWE."
"The WWE will be here when he gets out of college."
"I told him that."
"Maybe I'll have a talk with him."
"That would be great!"
Ted laughed at her enthusiasm and kissed her forehead.
The next day.
Ted was in the middle of a workout when Randy and Cody forced him to stop.
"What is up with you today, dude?" Randy asked folding his arms and looking at his friend.
"What do you mean?"
"What we mean is we haven't seen you wok out like this since you and Amanda broke up." Cody said referencing Ted's last girlfriend, Amanda. Ted knew it was true, he was working out like a mad man. Doing everything at a level he didn't normally didn't. His t shirt was soaked with sweat.
"Did something happen between you and Paxton?" Randy asked.
"No, no everything's fine."
"Don't lie, Paxton's not coming on the overseas tour and Teddy is a little upset." Cody said looking at Randy.
"I am not, she has things to do it's not a big deal. It's only two weeks." Ted said, the last sentence he'd been saying to himself quite a lot in the past 24 hours.
"Oh, so you're just working out your sexual frustration?" Cody asked snidely. Ted fought the urge to slap him. His former best friend had been under strict instructions to not tell anyone about he and Paxton's sex life, or lack thereof. He didn't feel like having to explain his sexual status when it was no ones damn business.
"Cody, stop worrying about other peoples lives and start worrying about those biceps, you look puny bro." Randy said, much to Ted's relief. But Ted also knew that later when they were alone he was going to be interrogated by Randy.
Thanks for reading, please review.
