A.N.: OK If y'all don't know this already but I think it's after like 5 months if the person you're looking for isn't found then they presume that their dead and stop looking. And during that time she was presumed dead her and Paul would have been divorced by death so she's technically not married to him. Song by Savage Garden

5 months down the road October 2002.





"Earth to Jeff!" Matt waved a hand in front of his brother's eyes. Jeff had taken on a disheartening look since Stephanie had disappeared and presumed dead. Edge, Matt, Lita, and himself all had been searching for her. One by one they'd begun to give up hope except for him. It was announced by Vince McMahon himself that his daughter was presumed dead and from then on he was in a state of denial. It wasn't possible to him. He still felt her in his heart and in his soul. Every fiber of his body was sure that she was alive. Especially since the "ghostly" appearences started happening. Every once in a while someone would catch a glimpse of what seemed to be Stephanie or her possibly ghostly essence. Whenever Paul went out to the ring he'd look down where Stephanie would once be seen clapping for him at ringside and instead see her in the audience. For most of the people in the WWF roster the first month with out her there to yell and scream at everybody was awkward and silent. Things just weren't the same for anyone who'd ever been around her on a most everyday basis.





Maybe It's intuition something's you just don't question like in your eyes I see my future at a near stand and there it goes I think I found my best friend. I know that it might sound more than a little crazy but I believe……





Looking over he saw his brother cuddling with Lita on the sofa and sighed imagining it was him and Stephanie. Shaking his head he remembered the first time they met. Her smile, her face, the way her hair fell. He let his tears fall loosly to the floor and closed his eyes. Leaning his head back on the wall Jeff felt something strange go through him. She was somewhere near him. His eyes followed to the monitor in the locker room. What he saw he froze his blood like ice. She was walking down the hall with Chris Jericho. His Stephanie was here in the arena walking towards the ring.







"MATT!!!!!"Jeff screamed at his brother who was lost in a kiss he was sharing with Lita. "Did you know she was going to be here?"







"Who?" The elder Hardy asked looking at the screen and standing. His eyes grew wide with shock, surprise, and confusion.









"But she's… she's supposed to be….. she was declared….. Oh my God."Matt sputtered all at once as Stephanie walked into the ring with Chris Jericho.







"Why is she with Chris?"Lita asked standing beside Matt.





I knew I loved you before I met you. I think dreamed you into life. I knew I loved you before I met you I have been waiting all my life.



His heart beat wildly he couldn't believe she was here. Sitting down he turned up the volume on the monitor. He couldn't breathe couldn't think. She looked thinner than the last time he'd seen her. Her hair was longer but straight. She was wearing a pair of flared black jeans and what looked like a newly re-made Stephanie McMahon shirt that mimicked Stone Cold Steve Austin's saying. "That's the Bottom Line, Cuz the Princess Said so". He smiled and she glowed like an angel. Chris handed her a mic and all the crowd hushed. She looked directly ahead at the ramp and then the fans and smiled.







"Now I know what you're thinking." She began. "But I'm not dead and no I'm not a ghost or a look alike. But I have been here for the past few weeks."







"You are all well aware of my addiction to drugs that put me out of commission for a while. But what you don't know is that someone helped me. Someone gave me a chance…. A second chance to get up and get out of my own personal hell." She said looking back at Chris.



There's just no other reason only the sense of completion. And in your eyes I see the missing pieces, searching for….I think I found my way home.

I know that it might sound more than a little crazy but I believe……



"I can't watch this….." Jeff jumped up before his brother could react and ran out the door. What she was saying was killing him pledging her love to Chris Jericho was his own living hell come to life. It didn't help much when it was being blasted over the intercom.







"But it wasn't exactly this man standing in the ring with me." Stephanie said looking down. "My friends who were watching close by I think you for being there to protect me in my time of need."







"The one man who did help me encouraged me and gave me something so precious that I can never forget it. He helped me walk after the accident, he pushed me to help myself, and he told me he loved me."





I knew I loved you before I met you

I think I dreamed you into life.

I knew I loved you before I met you

I've been waiting all my life.



"He took me to a cottage out back in Cameron, NC. He took care of me and he saved me." Stephanie bit down on her lower lip and began to cry. "I have only one thing to say to him if he would please come out here now."





"You know who you are and I need you here, with me please come out." Stephanie pleaded.





Jeff stopped in the hall and let his mind replay the words he'd just heard. The words that were making his heart soar. Turning on his heel he ran as fast as he could down the corridors. It seemed to take forever but he made it. His music hit and he didn't hesitate to run down the ramp and slide into the ring. He smiled at her as she took his hand. He pulled her close enough to pluck the mic out of her hands.





"Stephanie I believe you had something to tell me?"Jeff said looking at her searching her eyes for what he knew was always there.



I found some angels dancing around you..



"Jeffrey Nero Hardy……." She bit into her lip again and smiled. "I love you…. I think I knew even before I met you."





With an all and out grin he lifted her up in his arms and spun her around. He was grinning from ear to ear. Looking at the ring he held on his finger. The ring his grandfather had given him when he was 12. He set her down and got on one knee.





"Stephanie McMahon if I ask you to marry me will you say yes?" He asked her with a certain fear and hope in his eyes.





"Yes I would.." She replied her eyes never leaving his.





"Then Stephanie McMahon will you marry me?" Jeff asked her.





"Yes.. I will!" Stephanie smiled when he slipped the ring on her finger and he pulled her down for a kiss. Just then his music hit and Matt and Lita came down to the ring and slid in.





1 I'm more complete now that I've found you



"Jeff I'm supposed to get married first ya know.." Matt laughed shaking his brother's hand once he and Stephanie stood up.



"Congratulations friend?" Chris said looking at her with a questioning look.



"Thanks friend.." She smiled and hugged him tight. "Thank you for taking me in when I had no where else to go and thank you for protecting me and caring.



"Y'all I can't believe it!" Lita wiped away some tears while hugging Stephanie and then Jeff..



"This mean's your Team Xtreme for life!"Matt said. Jeff took his shirt off and helped her put it on.





"The new Team Xtreme featuring Lita, Jeff, Matt, and new addition Stephanie Hardy!"Jeff announced holding her hand up while Matt hand her other hand and Lita's.





"Let's go home.." Stephanie said wrapping her arms around Jeff.



I knew I loved you before I met you..

I think I dreamed you into life.

2 I knew I loved you before I met you

I have been waiting all my life…



"Can't wait.."He replied. They began to climb out of the ring when her father's music hit. Her eyes lit up at the possibility of seeing her father. It wasn't him it was Rose Parker the woman who'd gotten her on the drug in the first place.





"Ms. Parker?" Stephanie's eyes were laced with confusion and fear.



"Don't you mean Mom?" Rose said smiling down at the woman in front of her.



"You're not my mother…Why are you using my family's music." Jeff's grip around her waist tightened around her waist as he pulled her closer to him.





"Truth hurts huh?" Rose laughed. "I told your father if he cut me out of the family this would come out. I'm your Mother the one and only mother you really have considering the other one doesn't give a damn."



"You Shut up right now Linda's my mother not you or anyone else and she does care…where's daddy?" Stephanie inched frantically into Jeff's embrace.





"Stephanie don't talk to your mother that way."Vince walked out and looked down at his daughter.



"What?" Stephanie asked tears pooling in her eyes.





"Its true honey….. she's your mother… your one and only mother." Vince replied with some difficulty.

















The end.
