Okay!! So, New Story Time :)
This is a spin off of BourneBetter67's "Maple Leaf Mistake" It's a great story that you should TOTALLY read, but is not ENTIRELY necessary to read beforehand to enjoy this story, just a suggestion. I decided that I felt bad enough for Alex in her story to create this, so PLEASE enjoy and let me know what you think!!
Chris, Ajay, Petey, and Bailey were lounging around the house watching TV. while Riley and Joey played on the floor. Alex knocked and let himself in.
"Hey Shell." Bailey called as he appeared in the living room.
He nodded quickly as he dropped into the leather love seat.
Bailey narrowed her eyes at her best friend, "What's the matter with you?"
Alex looked up from watching his daughter color to meet everybody's inquisitive stares.
"Nothing." He breathed, a ghost of a smile flashing on his face.
"Liar." Ajay accused.
Alex shrugged innocently trying to avoid their imminent line of questioning.
Petey shook his head chuckling slightly, "You should know by now that we can read you like a book."
Alex gave in reluctantly, already knowing what they would say, "I've got a date tonight."
"With who?" Chris asked instantly.
"This girl I met at the coffee shop." Alex answered.
"Since when did you drink coffee? You're hyper enough as it is." Petey asked.
"Since he found out whoever this girl is drinks it." Bailey informed.
Alex rolled his eyes, "I wasn't paying attention and bumped into her and she dropped her coffee so I bought her another one and we started talking."
Chris laughed, "Was she all gaga about meeting one half of the sexiest tag team in TNA?"
Bailey pretended to stick her finger down her throat making everyone snicker.
"She had no idea who I was. It was kinda cute actually."
"What? She had no clue that you're on TV every week?" Petey asked in shock.
Alex shook his head smiling, "She doesn't watch wrestling."
The room was completely silent except for the kids scribbling on paper.
"Why was that kinda cute?" Ajay asked skeptically.
"It was just a change of pace to not be recognized and get molested immediately. It was nice to know that she likes me enough to go out with me for something other than being semi-famous." Alex explained.
Bailey crossed her arms and leaned back into the sofa indignantly, "I'm gonna go ahead and say I told you so."
Alex heaved a sigh, "Whatever, it's not gonna be like last time, okay?"
Bailey snorted in disagreement.
He glared at her for a moment before looking at Petey, "I don't know how you put up with her."
"Yeah you do." Petey grinned.
"Daddy look at my picture!" Riley said shoving the drawing in his face.
He recognized the four stick figures that she always drew, "It's great honey."
"Come on and let's get dinner started and leave your daddy in denial." Bailey said standing up.
Riley looked confused, "Daddy, what's denial?"
He glared up at Bailey once more, "It's a river munchkin."
"Oh." She smiled skipping into the kitchen.
"Have fun on your date Shelley, I've got my eyes on you." Bailey sing-songed as she followed Riley.
Alex leaned his head back staring at the ceiling.
"Come on; are you that surprised at her reaction?" Petey laughed.
Alex groaned, "I'm a grown ass man! I'm allowed to go out on a date if I want to!"
He made sure to state his declaration loud enough for it to carry into the kitchen.
A few moments later Riley came bouncing back into the den, "Mommy told me to give you this."
He saw that she was carrying a large wooden spoon that was covered in thick spaghetti sauce.
"Hand it to me before you spill it sweetheart." Alex said holding his hand out.
Riley flung the spoon in his face sending the sauce splattering all over him. Riley and Joey burst into laughter. Petey, Chris and Ajay were trying to stifle their laughter unsuccessfully.
Alex slowly opened his eyes, "Fudge all of you." He said pointing at the trio on the couch, "And Bailey?? You can go to…" he paused looking down at Riley who he knew would probably repeat what he said, "Hello Kitty."
"I LOVE HELLO KITTY!!" she squealed throwing her hands up and flinging more sauce on him.
Alex took a deep breath trying to bite his tongue as everyone erupted into laughter, "I know you do. I love you and I'll see you tomorrow okay?"
He got up and walked to the door, covertly flipping his friends off.
