Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of all Ages and faithful followers! Welcome to the first chapter of my sequel to Never Let You Fall! You're Never Alone will be an all new experience for Natalie and T.J and hopefully I will be able to do as well on this story as I have on Never Let You Fall!
Disclaimer: I do not own any recognisable person in this story or any of my stories. They don't belong to Vince McMahon either but I bet he wishes they did. Each character if based off an individual is owned by that individual. None of these individuals know or have agreed to take part in this story therefore I try to keep the disrespect to a bare minimum. It might seep through but I must ensure all of you that none of what I say is the way any living individual honestly feels. Well, it might be true, but that's truly coincidental. If I could, I would definitely own Harry Smith. He's just really sexy. And then, I believe that my wildest fantasies might have a possible chance of coming true... Harry Smith *sigh* The Hart Family will be mentioned (of course!)
That being said, enjoy and review!
"So Miss Neidhart, I believe that you want to drop your WWE Diva's Championship tonight. Would you like to explain to me why you are so willing to throw away what you've described as your dream goal?" Vince McMahon asked. I bit my lip nervously as I ruffled my hair before looking down at the silver, pink and purple championship belt resting on my lap.
"Vince, as much as I love this Championship, I need to give it to someone else. I don't want to Vince, but I have to," I said, finally looking upwards into my boss's dark brown eyes.
"Yes Miss Neidhart I understand that but would you like to tell me why you have to give this belt up?" Vince asked, his head tilting slightly to the side. I took a deep breath and exhaled slightly.
"I'm pregnant Mr Mac, that's why I need to drop my title," I said. Wow, it was such a relief to finally say it!
"Wow... does T.J know?" Vince asked.
"Not yet, I was planning to tell him before our meeting but I couldn't find him, I think he was preparing for the Rumble match." I said. Vince nodded and he smiled at me.
"Well congratulations to both you and T.J. So, is this baby a planned one or is it a surprise baby?" Vince asked.
"I'm pretty sure this baby planned it all out but it was definitely a shock to me and it is going to be a massive shock to T.J." I said.
"Oh I bet. So Miss Neidhart, I believe that you won't be an active wrestler for the rest of the year! When are you actually due?" Vince asked.
"I'm due in August. Apparently, I conceived around our anniversary." I said, with a smile on my face.
"Okay, so do you know what you are going to do after you give birth to the little one? Will you continue with the WWE or will you stay at home and be a stay-at-home Mom?" Vince asked.
"In all honesty Vince, I have no idea what I am going to do. I don't know whether or not I will want to remain as a WWE Diva. I love what I do, it's in my blood and I pride myself on being the first third-generation professional wrestler." I said.
"Alright Natalie, it was great talking to you and congratulations once again. I hope that you keep me updated, especially with your career choices." Vince said. I nodded my head and walked down the corridor, my championship belt held firmly in my grasp. I went back down to the Hart Dynasty's dressing room and frowned when I saw that there was still no one in there. Where was my boyfriend? I needed to tell him that he was going to be a Daddy. Huh... A Daddy... I'm sure he was going to absolutely love that. I slowly got changed into my wrestling gear and as I was lacing up my boots, T.J entered the room, with Harry and Harry's sister Georgia behind him.
"Hey," I said, looking up at all of them.
"Hey girlie, are you retaining tonight?" Georgia asked.
"Nah, I'm dropping tonight, just got out of a meeting with Mr Mac," I said.
"Damn, that sucks, sorry to hear that honey." T.J said, sitting next to me.
"Actually, I need to talk to you about why I chose to drop the belt," I said to him quietly. T.J nodded his head and I pulled him over to a corner so we could talk. Just as I opened my mouth, there was a knock on the door and T.J diverted his attention to the door. It opened and standing there were Michelle and Layla.
"We have to go over the match Nat and then we'll go straight to the Gorilla," Michelle said. I nodded my head and T.J turned to face me.
"Stay safe babe," T.J said, gently giving me a kiss.
"I have to, not just for me but for our baby." I whispered in his ear.
"What?" He asked, moving backwards to look at me.
"I'm pregnant," I said. I gently kissed his cheek and then I walked out of the room.
After losing my Championship Belt to Eve Torres, I walked backstage where I saw all the Royal Rumble Competitors lined up ready. I placed my hand protectively on my lower stomach as I grabbed a water bottle and headed back to my dressing room. As I walked past the line, a hand stuck out and gripped onto my arm. Looking upwards, I saw that it was T.J who stopped me. I stared at him for a moment, and then he pulled me closer to his body. As my body rubbed against his, I allowed my eyes to flutter shut slowly and then back open. T.J didn't say a word as his hand moved up and stroked my hair lovingly. My eyes closed again as his hand moved to the side of my face, caressing my cheek before pulling my face forward to gently kiss my lips.
"So... you really have a baby in there?" He whispered. I felt his hand on my stomach and I nodded my head.
"We have a baby in there honey," I said.
T.J's grin couldn't have gotten any bigger as he got down on his knees. He ran both his hands over my stomach before gently kissing the lower part of my stomach, just under my bellybutton. I smiled and ignored the strange looks we were getting from everyone else. We weren't a couple that usually displayed affection in the workplace so it was shocking for anyone to see us showing our love.
"Hello baby, Daddy loves you." T.J said, before kissing my stomach again. I smiled and he stood up. The Rumble match had started and I was going to leave but T.J kept me close to him.
"Don't you gotta focus?" I asked. T.J smiled and shook his head.
"The only thing I'm gonna focus on right now is the amazing woman in front of me that has given me the best gift in the entire world. I mean Nat... You're having my baby!" T.J said. I nodded and he pulled me closer to him as our lips met once more.
When T.J went out to the ring, I slowly walked back to my dressing room with a smile etched across my face. As I opened the door, I watched as Harry and Georgia looked up and they both smiled.
"Is it true?" Georgia asked. I nodded my head and smiled at her. She squealed and I watched as both her and Harry bounded off of the sofa and over to me, pulling me in for a tight three-way hug.
"Jim will be so impressed that he's a Grandpa for the second time!" Harry laughed.
"Well, he's used to being called Poppy now," I said, smirking. Harry and Georgia let go of me and I looked across at my phone.
"Speaking of Poppy, I should probably call and let him and Mom know that they are having another Grandchild," I said, biting my lip nervously.
"T.J was just eliminated." Harry announced, looking over at the TV. I frowned slightly and grabbed my change of clothes. I'm getting in the shower before he comes and hogs all the hot water." I said, making my way towards the bathroom.
As soon as I stepped under the hot water, I felt my body relax instantly. I sighed contentedly and pressed my lips together softly. I hoped that Mom and Dad were going to be happy for T.J and I. I knew that the only reason they were happy for Kristin and Andrew was because they were married. That was something that T.J and I had never talked about, marriage. We'd never thought it was something that we necessarily needed to do. I only hoped that Dad wasn't too mad. I knew that Mom would be thrilled, another Grandchild to spoil rotten. But would Dad have the same feelings? I knew that he accepted T.J but did he really want us to be having children together. As my nose inhaled the strawberry body wash I was using, I realised I was thinking too hard into this. I mean, after all, this was supposed to be a wonderfully happy time in both mine and T.J's life. I shouldn't be ruining it already with what I believed my Father's reaction would be. Surely he would be a bit more understanding than I thought he would be.
"Natalie Katherine, hurry up in there!" I heard T.J yell out. I turned off the water quickly and wrapped a towel around me before heading over to open the bathroom door with a slight frown on my face.
"I was thinking Theodore James," I said.
"Don't call me Theodore and you don't have to think in the shower," He said, planting a kiss on my lips. I shut the door behind us and turned to quickly put my bra and panties on before dropping my towel and looking at myself in the mirror. I turned sideways to see if there was any sort of bump showing – I was three months pregnant after all – and realised that there was indeed a small bump. I rubbed my hand over it in amazement and allowed a small smile to cross my face. That was our baby in there; our baby was growing inside of me.
"Babe," I said after a few minutes.
"Yeah," T.J replied.
"I'm already showing. I already have my baby bump. How did you not guess before hand?" I asked.
"I think you're perfect no matter what Nattie. I don't eye you up every day to see whether or not you have gained weight. That doesn't even cross my mind. But come over here and let me look at you," He said, turning the shower off. I walked over to the shower and he grabbed a towel, wrapping it around himself before stepping out. I turned sideways to show him my small belly and a lopsided grin crossed his face.
"You do have a small bump." He said, placing his hands on it delicately. I grinned at him and he looked up at me in amazement.
"Have you been to a doctor yet?" He asked.
"Just to confirm it and I go back this Friday when we're home." I said. T.J nodded and gently tapped his fingers against my belly.
"It's the first ultrasound this weekend as well." I murmured. He smiled and leant forward to kiss me.
"I love you," He murmured.
"Love you more," I replied, gently rubbing the lip-gloss from his lips.
After the Rumble was over, we all went to eat at a small diner.
"Damn, I don't have money on me," Georgia said, opening her wallet.
"It's cool George, I'll shout you," I said, smiling at my smaller cousin. I watched as T.J and Harry made their way to the table and T.J slid in beside me wrapping a protective arm around my waist. I smiled up at him and rested my head on his shoulder. I felt his phone vibrating in his pocket and I got it out.
"Why do Mom and Dad always call you first?" I asked, as my home number flashed across the screen. I accepted the call and put the phone up to my ear.
"Hey family," I said.
"Hey Baby Girl," Dad said.
"Daddy, I have something to tell you but I need you to get Mom on the phone so she can hear it." I said.
"Ellie, get on the other phone, our daughter needs to tell us something!" Dad barked. I smiled and saw T.J watching me intently.
"Hey baby girl," Mom said.
"Hi Mommy, I've got some big news for you guys," I said.
"Oh my, what is it?" Dad said. I bit my lip and looked at T.J nervously.
"Well Mom and Dad, I know you were both watching the Royal Rumble tonight and I want to let you know that I chose to drop my championship belt tonight, I wasn't forced to drop it. And the reason that I dropped that belt tonight was because... well, it was because I am pregnant." I said. There was a silence and I knew my parents were processing what I had just said.
"Do you mean to tell me Natalie Katherine Neidhart, that you and T.J Wilson are expecting a baby together?" Dad said slowly. I heard Mom squeal in excitement and I allowed a smile to cross my face.
"Put T.J on the phone," Dad said. I sighed and handed the phone to T.J.
"Hello?" T.J said. I looked up at him expectantly and saw his eyes twinkling with humour as he listened to my Father.
"Oh, well your precious little Princess never informed me of that rule Mr Neidhart," T.J said. I frowned slightly and he leant forward to kiss my nose.
"Hang on a second Jim; Natalie, will you please stop trying to do that? We are in a public place and it doesn't work on me anymore. What were you saying Jim. Oh, hang on; I'll put her back on." T.J said. He handed me the phone and I put it to my ear.
"Hey Daddy, T.J was just being the immature little baby that he is." I said, looking over at him and watching as he smirked at my comment.
"What were you doing to him?" Mom asked.
"Absolutely nothing, he was just trying to rile up Dad. I know, how immature can he be? He better smarten his act up before we have our own baby." I said.
"Well, congratulations baby, I'm so happy for you and T.J. When is the impending arrival due?" Mom asked.
"Uh, I think that it's the first week in August, at least that is what the Doctor said. The Doctor will confirm when my due date is when I see him this Friday. It's going to be my twelve week appointment." I informed her.
"Would it be possible for me to come along?" Mom asked.
"Sure Mom, of course you can come. Dad, don't even think about it, I don't want T.J being bashed in the Doctor's office." I said.
"Oh yeah, because your old man could totally take me," T.J scoffed.
"T.J, my Daddy could beat you up very easily, I think that you should take him more seriously." I said. I heard Dad chuckle and I smiled.
"Daddy, are you happy that you're going to be a Poppy again?" I asked.
"Of course I am baby girl, congratulations. I hope I get a granddaughter," He said.
"Why do you want a granddaughter?" I asked.
"Well, I already have a grandson, and I love Lockie to bits but it would be nice to have a beautiful baby granddaughter, just as beautiful as one of my baby girls!" Dad said. I almost melted at that.
"Aw Daddy," I said happily.
"Okay sweets, well I'll let you go because you're probably in the middle of dinner and then you'll be heading to bed, so give us a call when you get back to Florida and we will come around." Dad said.
"Okay, bye Mom and Dad, I love you," I said.
"We love you too sweetie, take care," Mom replied. The line went dead and I put T.J's phone back into his pocket.
"Are they happy?" Georgia asked.
"Incredibly so... T.J, what was that rule that Dad mentioned?" I asked.
"Oh, he said that you weren't supposed to have sex until you were married. He could have mentioned that a long, long time ago because I'm pretty sure we've been defying your Dad's rule for over nine years." He said, smiling at me. I giggled and blushed at the comment, especially because it was made in front of my cousins.
"Alright, let's get this dinner over and done with, I'm ready to go get some sleep!" I said.
When we got back to the hotel room, I put on one of T.J's t-shirts and then I crawled into bed. T.J got in next to me and wrapped his arms around me tightly.
"I love you; we're going to be a family." He whispered before kissing me softly.
"I love you too baby and yes, we'll be a family." I replied.
Huh... a Family. I liked the sound of that.
So there you have it! Natalie and T.J are going to have a baby! What did y'all think! I love reviews, critical or loving! So let us know how you feel :)
Read and review! :) Thanks
