"Who was that?" Joe asked looking up from their daughter who had curled into him rubbing her face sleepily against his side.
"My dad wants us to go with him to breakfast."
"You are included."
Joe sighed, he knew that this was a part of it he got lucky and only ended up meeting her mom when they were first together.
"you don't have to go if you don't want too.' She said kneeling down by her suitcase to pull clothes out.
"I will go under one condition."
"You and Grace travel with me.'
Reggie looked up at him then at the little girl who was laying in bed and back again.
"What about the two guys you are working with?"
"I'll talk to them. Don't worry." he said standing up from the bed and pulling his shirt back on.
"Daddy don't go." Grace whined.
"I'll see you soon Little One don't worry."
"Come on baby, out of bed, time for your bath."
"Do you want to see Papa before he leaves?"
the little girl bounded out of bed and hugged her father's knees before running into the bathroom.
Reggie waved her hand at him before disappearing into the bathroom as well.
"Reggie and Grace are going to be traveling with us to Raw." Joe informed his stablemates half an hour later.
"Why?" Jon asked.
'Because I want to get to know my daughter and there is no way I am letting Reggie out of my sight again."
"It's fine." Colby stated a smile forming on his face, "we want to know them too."
Joe finally seemed happy for the first time since he had known him.
"DADDY!" a little voice called from behind them.
Grace pushed past Jon and Colby and into her father's arms who scooped her up and kissed her cheek.
She giggled and hugged his neck before looking at the two men standing in front of her.
'Hi.' she greeted before looking up at her father, "Who are they?"
"That's Jon and Colby they are friends of Daddy's."
Grace's little mouth formed an o as she nodded her head.
"Excuse me guys." Reggie said brushing past the two again and coming to a stop in front of Joe and Grace.
"Grace what did I tell you about running off like that on mommy?"
"Sorry." She said resting her head on her father's shoulder.
"She's fine Reg." Joe interrupted softly, 'She saw me and ran.'
Reggie glanced up at him and gave a curt nod.
It was going to be a little hard to let go of some of the parenting stuff.
Grace wiggled to get down seeing her grandfather coming up to them.
"Oh god." she groaned.
"What?" Colby asked.
"My dad is going to be one of those dads that try to throw his weight around with his daughter." she answered with a shake of her head, "He is 10 years too late for that."
"She was kind of a wild child." Joe informed his stablemates.
"Something which you liked Joey." she shot her cheeks flushing at her slip up of his old nickname.
He put his arm around her, he turned his head so his stablemates couldn't see the smile on his face, "It's good to hear that nickname."
"Reggie, come on bring your friends." Jerry said from the entrance way.
"Coming Jerry." she said before looking at the other two.
"You don't have to come."
"Oh no. This is going to be good to pass up." Jon laughed.
Reggie gave him a frosty look before turning on her heel and going over to her father.
Ava Keller shifted her heavy notebook from one hip to another as she walked into the crowded little café.
Her eyes landing at the table in the corner of it at the table was the men she was going to be working directly with plus Jerry Lawler, a pretty woman who had a little girl on her lap cutting up her pancakes.
"AVA! Over here!" Jon called spotting her.
She nodded her head and walked over to the table.
Jon pushed the chair next to him out for her to sit on.
"Who is that?" She whispered as she sat down.
"That's Reggie, she is Jerry's daughter." he explained quietly, "She's also Joe's ex girlfriend and the little girl is their daughter. That Joe didn't know about until last night."
Ava's blue eyes widen as she looked across the table at the trio.
"The little girl is Grace.' he added as Grace pushed her mother's hand away and used the fork for herself.
Reggie let out a laugh and shook her head. Grace chewed her piece of pancake before looking at Colby who was directly in front of her.
"Mama, he's cute."
"He is very cute." her mother agreed before noticing the new comer to their table.
"Reg, that's Ava, she is in charge of our storylines." Joe explained quickly.
"Okay.' She trailed off confusion clear in her voice.
"How is it that you are second generation and no nothing about wrestling?" Jon asked.
Jerry shot him a look from across the table. He knew it was mostly his fault that Reggie didn't want anything to do wrestling.
She shrugged her shoulders, "I just never got into it or understood it for that matter.'
"Why not?" Colby asked curious.
"Ask Jerry." the words were dripping with malice and hurt.
Joe kicked him underneath the table giving him his own glare.
"It's because Papa wasn't home a lot when Mommy was little. She thinks that Papa doesn't love her because he was always gone." Grace said innocently.
Reggie shook her head fighting off the tears that welled up. Joe placed his hand on her thigh and squeezed it.
She dropped her hand onto his and squeezed it.
The familiar tingle she got when she was around him shot through her body.
"Stop it Reg." she scowled herself, "Don't go falling for him again."
