Author's Note: Last chapter, see you at the bottom!
AJ paced back and forth nervously in her locker room. Her mind was frazzled and she wasn't even sure what the hell was going on at the moment. She was just told that she would be defending her title tonight, and she no idea on who she would be facing. The WWE creative told her that she would be having a surprise opponent. That thought seriously scared her. It made her nervous. She didn't mind defending her title of course, but she would love to know who she was facing. And on top of all that, the issues that she had been having with CM Punk were still not resolved, and all she could see in her head was the image of he and Lita kissing.
Not knowing who she was going against was causing AJ to lose her focus. She wasn't sure why she was, but for some reason she had an uneasy filling about this match tonight. She then skipped out to the ring, her usual entrance, but the crowd could tell something was off. Her feeling was right however when she was standing in the middle of the ring, and then Lita's music hit. Her heart sank. Since when did Lita come back into the WWE?
The match was over and quick as it had started, after a couple of flips and body slams and submission holds, AJ lay in the middle of the ring without her belt as she watched Lita celebrate. How could she have let this even happen? She was letting Lita ruin her life. First she lost her boyfriend, and now she lost her title, both to the same person. Could things really get any worse at this moment? It felt as if she had hit bottom, and that there was no way she'd be able to come back up.
"I told you little girl." Lita teased. "I told you I was going to get what I wanted, first Punk, then your title." She spat as AJ only continued to lie on the ground. It felt as if everything around her was coming undone, and that she was powerless to stop it. She couldn't even think of a proper comeback to say to the redhead as she kept celebrating the title win. All she did was roll out of the ring, and slowly made her way backstage. AJ felt like crap, she just wanted to go get her stuff out of her locker room and head back to the hotel. Things were not looking good for her.
Meanwhile, somewhere else backstage, CM Punk had been paying close attention to the TV and saw AJ's match. He knew how much the diva title meant to AJ, and now that she had lost it, she was probably more upset than ever, especially since she didn't have her best friend to rely on. Punk stood there, weighing the pros and cons of going to see her. After all, she was probably in her locker room, crying and upset, and she probably didn't want to see anyone at all right now. But still, if he did go see her, maybe they could work things out and maybe she did want to see him after all.
He trudged down the hallway, nerves in a bundle and scared as hell, until finally he knocked on AJ's locker room door hoping she was still there. "AJ?" He called out as he continued to knock. He couldn't really hear anything but the sounds of her muffled sniffles, but he hoped she would answer the door. "AJ?" He called out again.
"Go away!" She yelled, not bothering to get the door. "I don't wanna talk to anybody right now!" Punk sighed, of course she'd be like this right now. She was upset, and when she was upset she was stubborn as hell.
"AJ, please open the door." Punk begged. As he stood there, and waited for her to open the door, his heart sank. He couldn't lose AJ. Just the mere thought of losing her sent him deep into insanity. What the hell would he do without his best friend? "Baby, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to walk away from you. But I had to. I had to walk away from you because you hurt me when you rejected me. Maybe you rejected me because you aren't ready to have a serious life with me. I care for you so much, AJ. You have no idea." He sighed as he started to lose hope. He wasn't sure if AJ was listening, but he hoped that she was.
There was movement within her locker room, and then the door opened and her head peeked out. "Then why did you kiss Lita?" She whispered. Her eyes were bloodshot, and he cheeks were a little tear stained, but god, it had felt like forever since the last time he had seen her, and to him, she looked so beautiful.
"I don't know." He sighed. "Because I'm an idiot. But I didn't feel anything when I kissed her. I told myself that I was kissing you. Because that's all I want. Is to kiss you." He confessed.
"You promise?" AJ asked again, her voice in just a whisper.
"Pinky promise." Punk said as he held up his tattooed pinkie. AJ looked at his finger for a moment, then up into his green eyes before intertwining her much smaller finger with his. This was it, the moment that both of them had been waiting a long time now for. Once the pinkie promise was complete, Punk took the small diva in his arms and passionately kissed her. He kissed her like it was their very first kiss, and that he would never let her go. "I love you..." Punk said to her as they pulled away from each other and rested their forehead against one another's.
"I love you too." AJ replied back as she stared into Punk's eyes lovingly. The all of a sudden, she uttered a singled word, "Yes..." She said, her voice barely audible.
In that moment, Punk was confused, "Yes...? Yes what?" He asked.
"Yes, I will marry you." AJ answered with a proud smile on her face.
"Are you serious?" Punk questioned as he smiled incredulously.
AJ nodded, "I'm completely serious. No more Lita, just me and you." She smiled.
"Sounds good to me..." Punk replied. So there they were, the two best friends were finally beginning their life together, and they wouldn't let anyone else get in the way of them.
