A/N: This is a little something for LadyGrelka that she requested. Sorry this took so long. I started on it and then it got deleted before I could finish and then I had to start from scratch *shakes head* Anyway, we're going back to 2001 for this one so I hope you enjoy.
After Raw went off the air Glenn was alone in his locker room, changing out of his wrestling attire and back into his street clothes so he could go back to the hotel. He had been planning on riding back with Mark but he and Sara had been looking pretty cozy so he was just going to skip out on that. He wasn't looking to disturb them. The way he saw it, the busier Mark stayed with Sara, the happier he would be with her and the more likely it was he would dropkick James out of his life for good. The past few weeks Mark and James were alternating between patching things up and coming apart completely at the seams and not only was it driving him and Cooper nuts, but poor Sara really didn't know what to do. At least though, with this entire DDP stalker storyline, she was out on the road with him and they had a lot more time to spend together. He knew Mark had the tendency to be a dick but Sara was not only a good woman but she seemed to be good FOR him. Plus he could actually stand to be around her so that just made her even more appealing. Jodi hadn't liked him and the feeling had been mutual and James was just intolerable.
Once he was changed he slung his bags over his shoulder and started heading towards the arena exit. He had rode here with Mark and Sara so now he was going to have to call a cab to go pick him up or maybe he would just walk back to the hotel. It was a nice night out and it wasn't like the hotel was that far from the arena. It was totally doable.
"Hey! HEY! Jeff you get back here you bastard that is not funny!"
Out of curiosity Glenn started to look back to see what was going on and ended up looking just in time as none other than Jeff Hardy come running and crashing right into him. The impact really didn't even faze him but poor Jeff bounced off him and fell on the ground, which allowed Adam to catch up with him and jump on top of him so he could make an attempt to wrestle the dollar bill he had tightly clasped in his hand away.
"Ow!" Jeff was trying unsuccessfully to push him off. "Get off Copeland!"
"Not until you give me my dollar Hardy!" Adam replied.
"I found it!"
"No you didn't! You took it out of my hands!"
"Hey, you snooze, you lose! Now get off me fatty!"
Adam let out some sort of high pitched insulted noise. "You think I'm FAT?" He slapped Jeff across the face for that.
"Ow! Bitch!" Jeff grabbed a handful of Adam's hair and yanked on it as hard as he could.
"OWWWW! Let go let go let go!"
"Well quit slapping me then!"
"Then give me my doll-owwwww! Help! Somebody help me Jeff's assaulting me!"
Glenn tilted his head to the side as he watched all of this go on in front of him. He knew from experience that wrestlers weren't the most mature people but this just went beyond anything he had ever seen. He felt like he was watching two twelve year olds having a total bitch fight.
"Yeah…that's my reaction too."
Glenn looked up to see Matt and Jay had come over and were forcibly separating Jeff and Adam. Matt was the one who had spoken and he was giving Glenn an apologetic look. "They're just…well stupid is about the only word that can do them justice."
Jeff's jaw dropped and he gave Matt an angry look. "Bitch." He stomped on Matt's foot as hard as he could. "I hate you. I'm not stupid. Adam might be but-"
"Oh fuck you Jeff!" Adam exclaimed. He was trying as hard as he could to get his hands on the younger Hardy once more but Jay was holding him back. "Jay he took my dollar and won't give it back! Make him give it."
Jeff snorted. "Oh please. You're relying on him to-"
Jay's hand shot out and nailed Jeff in the groin, making him groan and double over in pain. That allowed Jay to easily get the dollar bill out of his hand and give it back to Adam. "There you go."
"Yes!" Adam jumped up and pumped his fist into the air. "Thank you Jay."
Matt shook his head in disbelief as Jeff leaned on him for support. "Was that necessary?"
"Yes," Jay replied bluntly. He looked at Glenn, who was staring at all of them like they were all out of their minds. "Yo…what's up man?"
Glenn blinked as Jay held out his fist to him. "Well…I was going to leave and then I got distracted by a display of immaturity rivaled only by Shawn and Hunter in their prime."
"Yeah well Jeff started it," Adam said, pointing right at Jeff and just further showing the immaturity. "He took my dollar."
"Why did you do that?" Matt asked. He didn't seem like he wanted to ask but it was probably the only way this whole thing could be possibly be solved.
"Because I could," Jeff replied with a shrug. He straightened himself back up, still wincing in pain from the nut shot Jay had given him. "And I would have gotten away if it weren't for you." He shook his head at Glenn. "Why do you have to be so big?"
"Jeff!" Matt said in exasperation as Adam and Jay snorted in laughter.
"Because…I am?" Glenn didn't really know what else to say. He wasn't really in his comfort zone. With the exception of Mark, he tended to avoid most of the locker room if he could help it. He wasn't a people person by nature and the few times he socialized outside of his brother, they hadn't ended well. In fact, come to think of it, socializing with Mark didn't always end well either…
"Well stop it," Jeff said.
"Yes Jeff, because he can so stop that." Jay rolled his eyes at him before looking back at Glenn. "You waiting for Taker?"
Glenn shook his head. "Gotta find my own ride. He and the misses need alone time."
"You want to ride with us?" Matt offered. Out of the corner of his eye he saw that Jeff was taking a piece of his currently bright red hair and trying to chew on it so he elbowed him in the ribs to get him to stop. "We won't mind."
"…Okay." The hesitation was his logic telling him this wasn't a good idea but for once he ignored it. Honestly, while he could walk to the hotel, his body was tired and didn't actually want to now that he had a free ride dangling in front of him. And who knew how long a cab would take? No, he would take the free ride, but he had one condition. "Just don't put Jeff and Adam right next to each other." He didn't want to be stuck in a vehicle with them while they were right next to each other. He would probably kill them both if they started acting up while he was in a car with them.
"That means I get shotgun!" Adam announced loudly.
"Like hell it does!" Jeff protested.
Glenn slowly shook his head as Jeff and Adam took off in a race to see who would get the precious shotgun position. "Do they do this all the time?"
"Unfortunately," Jay admitted. "Welcome to our world."
"…Fuck me." This was going to be a long ride to the hotel.
Adam ended up winning the all important shotgun position and he was happier than a pig in shit as Matt drove them to the hotel. Jeff meanwhile, was sandwiched between Glenn and Jay and he spent a good portion of the time pouting. When he finally realized that that wasn't going to get him anywhere, he decided to entertain himself by staring at Glenn. Glenn was trying to ignore him but it became a harder and harder thing to do. "What?" he finally asked.
"What what?" Jeff asked innocently.
"Why are you staring at me?"
"Yes but that doesn't tell me why you said what." Jeff adjusted himself so his body was facing Glenn as much as it could.
Glenn felt the vein by his eye twitch a bit. "What do you want?" Hopefully that rephrasing would be to Jeff's liking.
"I want to stare at you."
"Cuz I wanna." Jeff grinned at the irritated look that flashed across Glenn's face. "I like your face. I think you hide it too much." He reached out and moved the older man's hair out of his face. "You cover it up too much. Even without the mask you do it."
Jay raised his eyebrows. "Dude, maybe you shouldn't do that…"
Jeff ignored him of course and actually proceeded to take a rubber band out of his pocket and use it to pull Glenn's hair back into a ponytail. "See? Isn't that better?"
"I can't actually see it," Glenn pointed out. "And I don't wear it like this." He tried to take the ponytail out only to get his hand slapped by Jeff.
"Dude, if you get killed back there, don't expect me to save you," Matt warned.
Jeff ignored Matt and slapped Glenn's hand again when he once again tried to take the ponytail out. "Leave it in until you at least get a proper look at it," he ordered.
"And what if I don't want to?" Glenn asked.
"Well I didn't say you had a choice in the matter." Jeff grinned at the look Glenn gave him and then laughed when he heard the thunder boom, signifying the start of a storm. "Oh fuck yeah!" He unbuckled his seatbelt and climbed on to Glenn's lap so he could press the button to put the window down.
"What the-" Glenn really was starting to wonder if taking this ride was a good idea because Jeff just kept throwing him for a loop. Usually he had pretty good control over his environment unless he was with the Lawsons, but even then he knew to expect madness. Here he was just out of his comfort zone completely.
"Jeff! Put that back up!" Matt ordered.
Jeff ignored him in favor of putting his head out the window and sticking his tongue out to catch raindrops on his tongue.
"Jeff I mean it! Get your head back in here and put that window up! You're going to get the car wet!"
"And me," Glenn grumbled.
Jeff looked back at Glenn but didn't put his head back in the window. "A little water never killed-ACK!" Unbeknownst to him, Adam had pressed the button on his side to put Jeff's window up and made sure the younger man's head got stuck right in there.
"Yo!" Jay kicked the back of Adam's seat. "Put that back up! You're choking him!"
"I know! That's why it's so funny!" Adam laughed until he caught the murderous glare he was getting from Matt. "Sorry…" He quickly put the window back down long enough for Jeff to get his head back in before putting it back up.
"You little-" Jeff lunged at Adam angrily and Glenn could only roll his eyes as Jay and Matt yelled at them both. Here we go again…
