Summary: Alex Shelley gets his questions answered. Sequel to What the Hell?
I'm even more confused tonight than I was last month. I couldn't help myself from going out there when Austin Aries was running his mouth. I had to go out there and remind him how he got to where he was until Roddy attacked me from behind and then Austin and Roddy both attacked me. I didn't expect Colt Cabana to come out and save me from them. I know what he said in the ring about going after Austin, but part of me has to wonder from what happened last month. I don't know if I'm reading more into it than there is, or if he has feelings for me other than hatred.
I want to know, but I don't know if I'll get a chance to ask him after his match with Austin. I didn't see the match, but Colt got hurt somehow during the match. The look on CM Punk's face could kill when I saw him and the officials helping Colt to the locker room. When I heard later that Austin hurt him by dropping him neck first on the steel entrance ramp, the part of me that has feelings for Colt was pissed.
When I get to the hotel for the next month's first show, I find out Colt's room number. I knock on the door hoping that he is alone and that he doesn't slam the door in my face. I'm happy to see that he is alone, and while he gives me a questioning look he still lets me in.
I can't figure out any another way to say it, so I just blurt out the question. His answer surprised me. As I had hoped, he had feelings for me too. I'm relieved to know that he did want to save me from Austin and Roddy, but said what he said in the ring because he was keeping character.
I can't explain it, but I have a sudden need to kiss him. I lightly kiss him on the lips, giving him the chance to hit me if he wants to. He responds by kissing me back, and I'm enjoying the feel of his lips against mine when there is a knock on the door. We both pull back at the same time and I hear him curse under his breath before heading for the door. I hide in the bathroom, hoping whoever it is doesn't need to use it.
I quietly groan when I hear CM Punk and Colt talking. I don't want to be in the bathroom forever, and who knows how long he will be here. He also is the person most likely to kick my ass because of what I've done to him and Colt in the past. I don't intend to hurt Colt, but I know I'm going to need to prove that they can trust me. I just hope that they will give me that chance.
I'm glad when he finally leaves, and I go out into the bedroom part. As much as I don't want to, I need to leave. Before I do though, I have one more question to ask. Does he want to make this a relationship? I want to, and hope that he does.
I'm happy to hear that he does, and let him know where I stand. I leave the room, feeling a lot better than when I came. This isn't going to be easy because of who we are, but I'm not going to run this time.
