"See Jamie and THIS is the catering…" heavy pregnant Mindy kissed James' fingers as she led him near the catering table at Wrestlemania XX. Since she was so far along she had brought James along to her shows, which Kane didn't like one bit. He really couldn't do that much with James there and it was driving him insane. He had changed his costume to just the tights and as always Mindy was escorting him. When 'pregnant by who' came up, the storyline pretended it was Kane's but in reality everyone knew she was married to James…she dragged him EVERYWHERE. In the spirit of keeping their relationship healthy they had left their kids with Cooper four days a week and that was his big job to earn his keep; watch the babies.
"Okay…" hugging her close and kissing her head James nodded, nuzzling her neck and not even looking at the food she was trying to keep him busy with during her valeting of Kane.
"Yo Minda!" that shout made James scowl and cling to her protectively as Kane approached looking more miserable than usual, but Mindy smiled brightly.
"Let's GO" he wasn't in the mood for pleasantries and James went to deliver a snappy comment when he took Mindy's feelings into consideration and didn't.
She gave him a stern look, "I will go when I am ready…" turning she glared at him and pet James' face, "I love you, stay with the food, and I will be back before you know it, okay babycakes?"
Sadly he nodded and they kissed, James petting her stomach gently and hugging her close before tapping her butt, "Stay out of the ring, alright? I'll be sick until you come back"
She kissed him, "I love you" another kiss, "like crazy, Jamie baby…"
"I love you more" he gripped her hair and they kissed one final time, Mindy giving him a little nip before she trotted to Kane's side, who waited for them to turn the corner before snagging her wrist and dragging her down the hallway.
"I bet you think you're being a tease" he nodded at her though she shook her head, "but you're not. I see right through your bullshit, Minda. He's a pawn for you. Nothing more than a pawn to anger me"
"He's my husband-"
She didn't scream on purpose and he nodded satisfactorily.
"You're learning a lot, Minda" he nodded while dragging her further down the hall, "If only you had listened to me and sucked that thing out before it became a hindrance"
"My HUSBAND'S baby is NOT a-"
"You don't even know what that word, MEANS idiot" he told the pregnant blonde and she frowned.
"Its gotta be bad if YOU used it…"
"For all you know it means 'snowflake'" he wrinkled his nose and hissed her way, "DON'T respond to things you don't know. Only makes you look even stupider than people think you are in the end."
Her eyes dropped and she nodded, "Okay…I am sorry."
She perked, "Mhmm?"
"Before we go out there tonight…" nervously he looked all around for James, "I can't thank you enough for always being there for me when I needed you most…"
She nodded, "Of course."
"And I want you to know…" he was feeding her fables, "that you've been the light of my life since the day I met you-I mean…" he bit his lip and stared at his feet, "we've been through almost anything any person can go through and we became closer than anyone could ever imagine. And…" he breathed heavily, "I can't stop thinking about you, Bug! Day in and day out you're all I see! Everything I do revolves around you-you're all I live for! You're the best thing that's ever happened to me and when I'm with you…" he ran a hand over his face, "Miranda I can't describe it! You're…" lost for words he made a new lie, "you're everything to me and…" he stumped himself he was going too far into it.
Confused she cocked her dumb blonde head, "What are you trying to say?"
Stunned he stared at her, "Don't you get it?"
Mindy was lost. She didn't nod or shake her head as Kane got in her face and threw his arms out.
"I LOVE YOU!" he could give Daniel Day Lewis a run for his money with the screaming.
Mindy threw her hands over her mouth and gasped as Kane turned around and shook his head in what seemed like disbelief. He snarled and spat and couldn't believe what he just said, putting on crocodile tears to lure the dumb little bitch in. Mindy started crying and stared at Kane in disbelief.
Meekly she said, "I love you too…"
Kane whirled around and stared at her, stunned. It worked.
"You love me?"
She nodded and cried, "Yes."
"You love me back?"
She nodded still crying, "Yes!"
Kane and Mindy stared at one another for a long moment, soaking in what they just said as Kane stroked her face. She blushed madly and looked up as if seeing him for the first time.
Trying something new he shook his head, "I'm not done yet."
Mindy looked at him confusedly. Kane took her hands in his and looked even more nervous.
"Now…" he chuckled darkly, "I've never done this before…" another faint chuckle, "which should be a good thing…but anyway Minda…when I told you that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you…I meant it."
She looked extremely anxious, already feeling something coming.
"Which is why you're going to have to bear with me for a moment…I have no idea how this is done…" he pulled a small black box out of his pants and bent down on one knee, taking Mindy's hands in his. Mindy's mouth dropped and her face drenched with tears. Kane opened the box with a HUGE diamond ring in it.
"Mi-Miranda Marie Stratigias…" he choked, "will you marry me?"
"Oh god…" licking her lips she ran a hand through her hair and frowned, "Oh Kane…! Why did you do this? Why did you have to do this?"
He scowled at her.
"I mean I love you, yes, but I do not love you THAT way! Kane…!" shaking her head she showed him her ring finger, "I AM married…and I LOVE him more than anything in the world…we have babies…we're HAVING a baby…you cannot ask me to betray James-"
"I'll fucking kill him, how does that sound?"
She opened her mouth to scream for James when he pulled a switchblade out of his tights and held it near her eyes.
"You call to him and I'll pop them right out of your head."
Trembling she nodded, and as he tried to kiss her she slowly backed away, shaking her head so he gave her a good whack to the back of the head and she felt woozy.
"I don't know WHAT happened to YOU…" he sneered at her and shook his head, "he's a pretty-boy I could destroy any time I wanted to."
She whimpered when he dragged her down the hall by her hair.
He lost his match and she was more than happy to see him lose.
After the match he dragged her backstage by her hair and threw her into the nearest closet he could find, holding her throat with a large hand as she sobbed and kicked her feet around screaming.
"JAMES! JAMES! JAMIE!"
She yelped when he sent a huge fist into her mouth and punched in her two front teeth, "SHUT UP!"
Doubling over she gagged a mouthful of blood and her two front teeth, screaming and reaching for her mouth when he pinned her wrists to the wall and cocked his head dangerously as she started to choke on her own blood filling up her mouth.
"He's not going to save you…" he shook his head in her face and watched the blood dribble down her chin, "he can't even if he wanted to…" he shook his head and leaned in her face, slowly petting her chin, "I could have though, that's what you don't understand, Minda Bug…I…could have…prevented ALL of this if you had just said one simple word"
"NO!" due to the absence of teeth it was muffled and he nailed her eye now, "AGH!"
"How…DARE YOU defy ME!" he pointed a finger in her face and gripped her throat tighter, "When the only reason you're still ALIVE is because of ME! You at LEAST owed me one, you little bitch after everything we've been through…for WHAT?" he laughed sarcastically, "A pretty boy? You're leaving me for a pretty boy who can't get out of his own way?"
"My HUSBAND!" again it was muffled and distorted.
"Husband…" he laughed, "well you know WHAT, Minda? Your 'husband'" he sassed, "that you love so much…after all these years he STILL didn't come clean and let ME take the rap…"
She was shaking her head in denial and he nodded right away.
"Oh yes! That…is EXACTLY the type of COWARD you married! Won't even man up to tell you the TRUTH about how exactly it was HE KILLED YOUR ONLY SISTER because she tried to get him incarcerated for FUCKING YOU when you were only a baby!"
Her hand went over her mouth and she panicked, shaking her head in denial.
"Do you have the SLIGHTEST idea who you're REALLY married to? He let ME take the fall! GLADLY! When I did because I LOVED you, you little bitch…and if I didn't say something to you now he NEVER would open his ugly fucking mouth."
"No…" catching her own blood she stamped her foot and panicked, "No no no no no no no no no NO! NOT MY JAMIE NO!"
BAM! BAM! BAM!
Out came a third tooth on the bottom row and she was on the ground now, hugging her knees to her chest and silently crying when he rolled his eyes.
"Oh get UP, you're not fooling ANYONE with this sympathy bullshit. You KNOW that if I get my hands on him you won't exactly have a pretty little husband anymore…because I'll make him bleed…I'll crack his fucking neck and make you WATCH as he dies!"
Sobbing she shook her head when he ripped her up by her hair and smashed the back of her head to the wall.
"Deny ME…who the hell do you think you are? You're nothing special, you know that? You're a FRAUD. You're PSYCHOTIC. An ungrateful little WHORE that everyone would like to see disappear. If you didn't have those twenty-thousand dollar mammary glands no one including your precious pretty boy would even care to hear your NAME…that is if you CAN hear with all that makeup weighing down your retarded head."
Sobbing she tried to wipe the tears from her eyes but he bent her wrist so far back it nearly snapped.
"You can go BACK to your pretty boy and CRY…CRY like the useless whiny little damsel you are…and he'll come after me…and I'll get him…and I'll make you WATCH me get him…" his head cocked, "or you can go the fuck back to your hotel room and clean yourself up for RAW tomorrow. Whatever you prefer."
He shoved her into the door and she yelped before fumbling with the handle.
Rushing out of the closet she hid her face from everyone before snagging the keys to her car and actually leaving James without warning at the arena.
Sobbing and wiping her eyes in her and James' presidential suite she shut out all the lights and curled in a ball on top of the covers.
