A/N: So after watching RAW this past Monday night, I got some inspiration for the last chapter. That's right- last chapter! A big thank you goes out to everyone who has reviewed, favorited and liked the story. I greatly appreciate it! Hopefully everyone enjoys the new chapter & as always please read & review!
FYI: Mike & Taylor have an intimate moment during this chapter, and don't forget I suck at writing such a thing. Please don't judge, lol!
A few days had past and as Taylor began packing a duffle bag, she looked at her mom with a questioning look. "Mom, are you sure you don't want me to stay and help?"
Janet instantly shook her head. "Taylor, all I'm going to be doing is filing life insurance claims, paying funeral expenses and writing thank you claims. You go on the road with Mike. You both need the time together."
Taylor nodded. "I have to admit, I'm a little excited. And I'm still on bereavement leave from the hospital, so when Mike asked to go on the road with him- it was definitely the right time."
"What if you run into Eve?"
"She was in a chapter in my life that I'm no longer worried about. If I see her in the halls, I can just walk past her and smile. Why you ask? Because I didn't let her ruin my marriage to Mike."
Janet smiled as she stood up off the bed. "Good girl. I have some errands to run, so I will see you later next week. Have a safe trip."
Not long after Janet left, Mike came home from picking up things needed for the road. "Hey baby girl," he said, watching her pack make up. "Are you all set?" he asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Don't give me that look," Taylor smiled. "It's my last bag I promise."
"I'm glad you're coming with me," Mike said as he gently pulled on her arm, and into his arms. "Life on the road won't be so lonely, and I have big plans for us."
"Big plans?" she questioned. "Should I be nervous?"
Mike shook his head, stealing a quick kiss. "No, you don't need to be nervous. You'll get this surprise on Sunday night since I don't have to work the house show that night."
Early the next morning, Mike and Taylor were up and headed toward the airport for the weekend's house shows in Texas. She was pleasantly surprised to see Nic and Melissa sitting next to them across the aisle. "Hey! I didn't know you were on the road too!"
"It was a last minute decision," Melissa laughed. "At least we won't be lonely while the guys are busy."
During the Friday and Saturday house shows, Miz had quick victories against Antonio Cesaro and Kofi Kingston. After the win, Mike smiled when he saw his wife waiting in the locker room. "Hey."
"Hey," she smiled. "Congratulations on the win!"
"Thank you," Mike said as they kissed. "I'm going to grab a quick shower, and then what do you think of driving to San Antonio? It's only a few hours away, and that way we can spend the day together tomorrow without having to drive there for RAW."
"Is my surprise there?" she asked as Mike nodded. "OK, let's go!"
Mike smirked. "And just for the record, your surprise would have been at any hotel we stay at."
Within the hour, the couple was on the road and the drive seemed to go by quickly. When they got into city limits, Mike grabbed his cell phone and pressed some numbers. "Hi this is Mike Mizanin, and I just wanted to make sure my hotel was ready," he told the person as Taylor scrunched her eyes. "Great, thank you so much…yes, we will be checking in within a few minutes…yes, thank you. Good bye," he said, hanging up the phone.
"Who were you talking to?" she asked, leaning her back against the seat.
Mike shrugged. "Just the hotel- I wanted to make sure everything was ready in our room," he smiled.
After checking into the hotel, Mike led Taylor to the elevator and rose up to the fifth floor. Once those doors opened, he grabbed her hand and led her toward the end of the hall. It was then that Taylor noticed the sign above the room number.
"Honeymoon suite?" she exclaimed, glancing toward her husband.
Wiggling his eyebrows, Mike opened the door and grabbed their luggage. Just as Taylor was about to walk in, he stopped her. "Tonight, all day tomorrow and most of Monday is what I am calling our mini moon. And isn't it tradition for the groom to carry his wife across the threshold?"
"You already did that when we got home from our wedding," she giggled.
Before another word was said, Mike swooped her up in his arms and kicked the door closed. Taylor giggled and once she was put down, it was then the room came into view. The open room was surrounded in candles, there was soft music playing from the stereo and rose petals were spread across the king size bed. Champagne and fresh strawberries were chilling by the bed.
"Wow," she whispered.
"Now you know why I had to call the hotel," he said walking behind her. "Taylor I know it's been a rough few weeks, for more than one reason. And like I said just a second ago, I don't have any signings or promos until I have to be at the arena for Monday Night Raw. So for like the next 36 hours, I am all yours. This can be our little honeymoon," he said, running his thumb across Taylor's cheek. "I want a fresh start for us and Taylor, you have no idea how much I love you."
Taylor smiled through tears. Without saying anything, she walked past Mike and headed toward the door. He scrunched his brow, but smirked when she waved the DO NOT DISTURB sign. She then returned to his arms.
"No one needs to interrupt us," she smiled. "Mike I want that fresh start too, and I love you too. I love you so much."
It was then Mike descended his lips upon Taylor's, cradling her face. She instantly deepened it, starting to pull on Mike's t-shirt. The couple's breathing became more and more heavy. Reluctantly, Mike pulled away from his wife, bringing his mouth along her neck and collarbone. "You are so amazing," he mumbled against her skin.
During the make out session, Mike's hands had been all over Taylor's body and in a moment his hands swiftly removed her shirt. He immediately re-attached his lips to her collarbone, and then traveled south. Swiftly, he removed the white cover, and attacked the sensitive flesh.
Taylor sharply inhaled as he took her nipple in his mouth. They locked eyes as Mike got on his knees, playfully dipping his tongue in her belly button. Then, he un-buckled her jeans & slipped them down her tone legs. Before standing, he placed a sensual kiss in Taylor's most sensitive area. When he stood, he kissed the brunette with everything in him.
"Mike…make love to me," she finally whispered against Mike's ear as he slipped off her panties.
Not saying a word, he picked her up and gently laid her across the bed, causing the rose petals to fly up in the air. In record time, Mike removed his jeans and boxers, exposing his ready member.
When their bodies were initially connected, Taylor winced for a brief moment. It wasn't because they weren't active; in fact it was quite the opposite. It was because of Mike's size but after a few moments, the pain turned into pleasure.
"Oh my God," Taylor moaned, arching her back.
To Mike, nothing could have been sexier than that moment. "Are you alright?"
She nodded. "Yea, I'm ok," she breathed, enjoying the sensation running through her body.
It was late in the night, and both Mike and Taylor were enjoying the silence within their room. As Mike lightly began tracing his finger up & down her bare arm, they both caught each other's stare. Taylor moved slightly and scanned the room. All the candles were blown out, the champagne and strawberries were now sitting in cool water and clothes were strewn all over the room.
"We have quite the mess," Taylor giggled.
Mike shrugged. "I'm not worried about it until Monday when we leave. This is our honeymoon."
Smiling, Taylor then turned toward him. "Has anyone ever told you that you're sexy?"
He laughed out loud, pulling her on top of him. "No one that really mattered. And your beautiful. I'm so glad that you're here with me tonight."
"Where else would I be?" Taylor asked as they kissed again.
When the couple walked into the arena Monday afternoon, neither one could have been more relaxed. During Mike's time off, they literally spent that whole time locked up in the hotel room, leaving only once for dinner and time in the gym. Otherwise, they both were enjoying their quiet time together.
"Ready to get your ass kicked Mizanin?"
Both turned around, and laughed out loud as Nic and Melissa drew closer. "I think your wrong there, Nic. I've already looked at the script, and I do believe that it will be me who delivers an ass kicking to you my friend!"
Nic then turned toward Melissa. "Is this guy really in our wedding?"
"Yes, and you can't change that anymore," Melissa said, causing both men to chuckle.
"Yea, yea, yea," Nic said, rolling his eyes.
"I don't know about you guys but I am most excited about Ric Flair being in my corner," Mike said, wrapping an arm around Taylor. "To work so close with a legend, let alone him being in your corner is…"
"Please don't say it," Taylor interrupted.
"AWESOME!" Mike said at the top of his lungs as everyone groaned and giggled.
It was Taylor who now rolled her eyes. "You're lucky you are so cute!" she said, pressing her forehead to Mike's.
He smiled. "You love me and you know it!" he exclaimed, stealing a kiss.
Just then, AJ Lee came up to the group. "Hey guys," she exclaimed. "Nic, we need to go over the match tonight."
He nodded. "Mel, I will meet up with you later babe," he said before kissing her goodbye.
Mike then turned toward Taylor. "Yea, I need to find Ric, and I also have a meeting. I'll meet up with you later too. Love you," he said as they kissed.
"I love you too," Taylor smiled.
The girls watched as everyone walked away. "It's good to see you and Mike back to normal," Melissa said. "What did you guys do after leaving Saturday night?"
Taylor smiled, recalling the memory. "Mike surprised me at our hotel here with a romantic setting, and we spent a lot of time together. Put it this way, the only time we left our hotel room was when we had dinner reservations last night and Mike went to the gym. Otherwise-"
"I understand, no need to get into details," Melissa smirked.
"Can I ask you something," Taylor began as they walked toward Mike's locker room. "Does it bug you that Nic is working with AJ?"
"No," she answered. "Nic can get everything he needs right here with me. Besides, I know something he doesn't," she smiled as Taylor's eyes lit up. "You're not still tripping over Eve, are you?"
"Did someone say my name?"
Both girls turned around, and the tanned diva was standing before them, fake smile and all. "Well, well look what the cat dragged in. Taylor, after what happened I didn't think you'd still be around," she smiled.
"After what happened? What happened is you tried to steal my husband!"
"And I pretty much succeeded," Eve said. "Mike deserves a lot better than some…nobody."
That was the last straw for Taylor. Before she knew it, she slapped Eve across the face. Hard. Instead of getting into trouble, both girls just turned and walked in the other direction.
"I can't believe you slapped a diva," Melissa smiled. "All I have to say is thank you for allowing me to watch it!"
Taylor giggled as she rubbed her hand. "What can I say, Eve deserved it! Now, what I want to know is that little secret that you know but Nic doesn't."
About a half hour later, the girls returned to Mike's locker room. "Hey baby," Taylor said. "I didn't think you'd be in here."
He shrugged. "My meeting was shorter than I thought," he explained as Taylor slid in his lap. "Where were you guys?"
"Taylor was slapping a diva," Melissa exclaimed. "Mike you'd be so proud," she said as the other glared at her.
Mike then turned toward his wife. "You slapped Eve?! What happened?"
"In my own defense, it wasn't my fault! Melissa and I were minding our own business and Eve started running her mouth about how she stole you away, and how you deserve someone better. That is why I slapped her."
He stayed silent as he looked from Melissa to Taylor, and back at Melissa. Mike then patted Taylor's leg. "Melissa's right. I am proud," he smiled.
A few hours past, and the girls watched Nic and AJ walk down the ramp. Mike knew he was up in a matter of moments. "Alright, wish me luck," he said.
"You don't need it," Taylor said as she patted his chest. "You are going to have a great match. Go knock 'em dead. I love you."
"I love you too," he replied as they quickly kissed. "And I was thinking we should continue our honeymoon when we get home on Wednesday morning."
Taylor smiled as Mike's theme music began to play. "You've got a date."
When he disappeared on the other side of the curtain, Taylor took a seat next to her friend. "What did Nic say?" she finally asked.
"He's excited. I think I even saw tears in his eyes," Melissa responded. "I would even like to move up the wedding. That way, we are married before the baby comes."
Taylor nodded. "Yea. You guys can elope like Mike and I did!"
Melissa giggled. "I know I said it earlier, but it's good to see you and Mike back to normal. You're acting like yourself again."
"I'm glad things are back to normal," she said, giggling while watching Mike goof off with Flair in the ring. "Have I ever thanked you for bringing that man in my life?"
"You have once or twice," said Melissa. "But you're welcome!"
A few minutes later, Mike pinned Nic and grabbed the victory. As he celebrated with Flair in the ring, Taylor smiled and turned toward her friend. "And we all lived happily ever after!"
