I had decided to take a day off from selling cosmetics and dancing,and today just happens to be the dreaded Valentine’s Day.So today is my day to hideaway and watch movies along with eating ice cream while in my pajamas.I know what your thinking why isn’t she wanting to go on a date or atleast to a party?Right?I have been in so many relationships that have ended badly that i have just given up,what is the use it is some crazy holiday based on a feeling that you have to be lucky to find.
I was just going to turn my movie on when my phone rang, knowing it would be either my best friend Chloe or my mom.They try to set me up on blind dates every year and every year i just say no then turn my phone off.
“Abigail’s phone” i answered
“Hey Abs,it’s Chloe i was just wondering i-”
“I turn you and mom’s date idea every year when are you going to give up” i said getting annoyed
“I actually didn’t call for that,i was wanting to know if you would go to a party with me tonight?” she asked hopeful
“That is the same thing,you will just get me there and push me off on some random guy”
“I promise i won’t just please come with me?Girl we are in Tampa and you know there are some hotties here,hell you never know who could be there” she begged
“Fine,but if i hate it after the first hour i am leaving.”i said
“Great,i will be there in twenty to help you get ready” she said before hanging up.
I groaned and then turned my tv off,so much for my night to myself this better be worth it.I usually don’t get many days off work but the one day i always ask for is today,but my best friend just has to find a way to get me out of the house.
Twenty minutes later…
“Okay,i am here now go and shower while i invade your closet” she said walking through the door and going straight to my room.
That girl she drives me crazy sometimes,but i love her and she is only trying to help.I went up the stairs and to the shower,if i have learned one thing in the past ten years is that you don’t argue with Chloe when it comes to clothes.I took my time showering and when i finished i stepped out and dried myself before placing on my robe.I sighed before opening the door and prepared to become a barbie doll.
“Hurry up and sit down,i need to do your hair and make up first”she said pulling out my chair in front of my vanity.
“Jeez,Chloe take a chill pill” i said sitting down.
“I am,but the party starts in an hour”
“Have you not heard of being fashionably late?”i asked
“We will be, it started an hour ago”
Chloe then put half my hair in a ponytail and left the other half down,she then curled the half that she had left down.My hair is really long almost to my backside,so this took thirty minutes just for my hair.She then moved onto my make-up and i wasn’t allowed to face the mirror as i she did this,she continued applying it for about fifteen minutes and then twisted me around.She had added light foumdation,smokey eyes,pink blush and red lipstick,i looked like a barbie doll.
“Thanks,it looks awesome” i said standing up.
“Okay,so i picked out your outfit and you have to wear it” she said motioning to the bed where it was layed out.
I walked closer and took a closer look,there was denim shorts,a white tank that was longer on the left so it slanted,a black flowy vest and black high heels.This definatly has Chloe written all over it,because i would just throw on some jeans and a t-shirt.
“Well don’t just stand there,put it on” she said walking out of the room.
I shook my head at how demanding she is,but i wouldn’t know what to do without her.I tossed my robe on the bed and began putting the clothes on,instead of the heels that would kill my feet i exchanged them for some gold flats.I. left my room walking to the living room,where Chloe was already standing by the door.
“I figured you would switch the heels”
“Then why do you even lay them out,i hate them they hurt my feet” i said
“One day you will get use to them,now let’s go” she said dangling her keys off her finger
We walked out and climbed into her purple Chevrolet Camero,she turned the radio on and eminem’s lose yourself was playing.We both started rapping along to the song,we sang along to the radio until we pulled up in front of a house.It was a huge house,it was white with a lot of windows and the best part is that it was sat along the beach and it had palm trees in the yard.When did Johnathan get so rich?
We get out of the car and just walk right into the house,the party is already in full swing.Most people have already had way too much to drink,and are falling into everything.I spot Johnathan across the room and take in his appearance,his brown hair is slicked back and his body is defiantly more defined than the skinny dork from high school.I run towrds him and just as i am about there he spots me and opens his arms,i hug him and feels like nothing has changed.
“Abby look at you,you have grown up” he said stepping back to look at me.
“Me?Look at you,your all buff now” i said checking him out longer than i should have
“I am,and you seem to like it” he smirked
“Oh hush,i just haven’t seen you in so long” i said smacking his chest
“I know,let me go grab you a drink then we can catch up” he said walking into the kitchen.
Today is valentine’s day and i have no plans at all,so i guess i will just hang out and watch tv and maybe swim later.I just walked into the kitchen to grab a beer and just as i was about to take a drink my phone rang.I looked at the caller id and it said Johathan Good/Dean Ambrose,what could he be wanting?
“This is Cena” i answered
“Hey John,i am having a party tonight you should swing by”
“I already have plans” i said scratching the back of my neck
“Dude watching television is not plans and if you are not here in thirty minutes i will come get you”
“Alright,i will be there.See ya in few” i said before hanging up
I put my beer away and then walked up stairs to get ready.I already had on my kahki shorts on so i just need to find a shirt,i walked over to my suitcase because what is the use of unpacking when you are only homr for a fee days.I found a plain white t-shirt and then grabbed a plaid button up shirt but i left it unbuttoned,i placed my hat on my head. I grabbed the keys to my eighty-seven mustang and made my way to my garage,i went to the car i got in and it roared to life.I pushed the button on my remote and the door open as i pulled out and went down my driveway,i drove for about ten minutes until i pulled up at Johnathan’s house.
I stepped out of the car and the girls that were outside instantly looked at me,that is the problem they all want to me but not a relationship.I know what you are thinking,isn’t that what most men want?Not me,i have never been the player type and i am not starting now.
I walked into the house and spotted Dean talking to this girl,i couldn’t see her face because she was turned away from me.From what i could see i liked,she has long brown hair and reslly nice curves.As i make my way over there,she takes off in a different direction swaying her hips.
Dean had brought my drink back and i talked with him a couple minutes before i realized i haven’t seen Chloe.
“I’ll talk to you later John,i haven’t seen Chloe since i got here” i said putting my hair behind my ear
I just flirted with Johnathan.He is hot,but there is a reason i haven’t seen him all these years.His job keeps him busy and i don’t know if i can handle a long distance relationship.
“Sure,save me dance” he said giving me hug.
I hugged back and then pulled away,i walked off towards the kitchen thinking she might be in there.She wasn’t in there,so i made my way to the backyard.There she was sitting on some guys lap in a lawn chair and they were going at it.I rolled my eyes and started to walk away when i hear some guy yell,while walking towards thr guy beneath Chloe.
“Yo Phil, get a room man” his voice was deep and sexy and i turned to look for the source
The man it came from was just as sexy as the voice,he was tall,and very fit.The best part is when he smiled in my direction he has perfect dimples on his cheeks,and his eyes they are so blue it looks like you are looking into the ocean.
“Hey man,wow what got you out of the house” the guy said once he pulled his lips away from Chloe.
I decided to walk over instead of just standing there eavesdropping.
“Chloe,i thought i told you to noy ditch me when we arrrived” i said
“Sorry,but you and John seemed to be doing okay” she batted her eylashes try to act innocent.
“Whoa John,you already getting cozy with someone” the guy with the lip ring asked Mr.sexy.
“Nope,i think they are talking about Ambrose” he said looking sorta jealous.
“Oh yea,i am so use to calling him Dean” the guy said.
“Anyways,i just thought i would come make sure you weren’t drunk off your ass already.I will find you when i am ready to go” i said turning and walking back into the house.
The music was blasting louder now and more people were drunk and they were practically having sex in the living room.I went to the kitchen and grabbed a beer then made my way back into the living room. I am a dancerso i will just dance by myself, i don’t need a man to dance with.
I was swaying my hips from side to side and just letting loose,i turned around and hit a rock hard chest.I was about ready to yell at whoever it until he spoke.
“Sorry about that,i was just about to try and get your attention over the loud music” he said
I instantly knew who it was by his voice,so i looked up into those blue eyes.
“Really?What for?” i asked not daring to move
“i wanted to ask your name and I was going to see if i could steal a dance?
“My name is Abigail but everyone calls me Abby and sure you can” i said just as a slow song came on
I wrapped my arms around his neck as he placed his on my hips.
“So how do you know John?” he asked
“We went to high school together,but lost touch after graduation.What about you?”
” I work with him in the WWE,he is part of the shield” he explained
“Oh now i know where i have seen you before, your John Cena” i said casual
“Wow,you are thr first girl i have met thay said thay without attacking me” he chuckled
“I watch all the time,i just think of you as a normal person though”
“I’m glad,so i think this party is getting pretty boring.What do you say we go have our own date?’ he asked
I know i had just met this guy but come on you know you would go too.And he seems really nice,i did say i wanted fun.
“Sure,just let me go find my friend and tell her bye” i said
“She left with Phil,that is why i came to find you she wanted me to tell you she would see you tomorrow”
“Okay that’s fine,but i do need to go tell the other John thay i am leaving so i will meet you by thr door”i said
“Okay” he replied
I walked around the living room and didn’t see him there,so i went into the kitchen.He was standing there with two other guys talking and sipping in their beer.
“John,i just wanted to let you know i am leaving” i said
“Why so soon?I didn’t get my dance”
“I met up with John Cena and we are going to grab a bite to eat”i explained
“Damn John always gets the hot ones” the guy with blonde and brown hair said
I blushed” Thanks,but i have to go see ya around” i said before walking off to the living room again.
John was standing by the door smiling as i approached him.
“You ready to go?” he asked
He opened the door and we stepped out onto the porch before walking down the drive way.We were silent as we walked to the car,because honestly i was getting nervous.I have always liked John,i just didn’t recognize him at first.We walked down the long driveway,he must have arrived after us because we were now walking down the side of the road.
“Sorry it’s such a long walk,i was invited at last minute” he said
“it’s fine,i’m just glad i didn’t wear the heels Chloe picked out earlier”
“I never understood why girls wear those things if it hurts there feet” he said
“Unless it is a formal occasion i don’t wear them”
“Here we are”he said motioning to a bright orange mustang
“I like the car” i said
“Thanks,i collect old cars”
“Cool” i said as he opened the door for me and i slid in. “Thanks”
“No problem” he said and then jogged around getting in his side.
He cranked the car and the engine roared to life,it made my heart beat quicken just by the sound.
“Where to?” he asked
“Do you mind if we get a bite to eat,i haven’t ate anything yet”
“We can’t have that,where do you want to go?” he asked as we pulled onto the road.
“Sounds good” he said as we got onto the highway.
We made small talk as he continued to drive down the road.It was thirty minutes later and we pulled up in front of a resturant.I took the time to read the sign as John got out and jogged around and opened my door,it read Roma’s Pizza.
We walked inside and found a seat,we weren’t even seated for five minutes and the waitress came.
“Hi,i’m Amber i will be your waitress this evening.What can i get you to drink?”
“I’ll have sweet tea please” i said
“Just water,thank you”John said and then she walked away
“So tell me about yourself” he said
“Umm..i am twenty six and i sell cosmetics and do back up dancing”i said
“That’s cool,as you know i do wwe and i am thirty six”
“So what do you do outside WWE?” i asked
“I am in the gym most of the time,but in my free time i try to go visit sick children at the hospitals”
I mentally went awww.
“That is so sweet,so when do you go back on the road?”i asked almost afraid of the answer
“Four days” he answered as the waitress brought our drink.
She took our order and then walked back to the kitchen,John and i sat in an awkward silence.Because we both knew no matter how much of a connection we may build or how much fun this date is we probably won’t be able to see each other again.The waitress eventually brought our pizza back,and we ate while talking about anything but him leaving.Once we finished eating the pizza,John insisted on paying so i let him.
We walked back to the car and hopped in,when he pulled out of the parking he turned the radio on.
“Where to?”he asked
“Well since it is almost twelve and i have to get up early,i guess home”
“Okay” he sighed
When he got back onto the highway i explained to him how to get to my house.
“That is just ten minutes from my house” he said
“Cool” i said
He continued driving til he was pulling up into my driveway,i had my on the handle ready to exit the car and i was just about to pull it as i felt a tug on my left hand.I lookes to my left to see what John wanted and that was when his lips crashed into mine. I was shocked and didn’t kiss back at first,but when i waa just about to he pulled away.
“John, why kiss me when we both know this can’t happen?” i slightly yelled
“Listen to me a second okay?” he asked
“I have been with many girls in this past year since my divorce and you are the only one who didn’t want me for my body or my money.We can talk on the phone,skype and i will try and come home more often,can you just give a us a chance?’ he asked
“Sorry John,i have never had good luck with relationships in the same town. Plus how am i going to know you aren’t seeing some diva behind my back,i really just can’t” i said then got out of the car.
Before the door closed i heard John groan and hit the steering wheel.I walked to my door repeating ‘Don’t look back’ over and over again in my head. When i put my keys into the and turned,i heard his car start up and the peel out of my driveway.I shook my head before walking into my house.
I tossed my keys on the table by the door and then went straight to my room.I took off all my clothes before tossing them into the hamper,i grabbed my basketball shorts and a tank then went into thr bathroom.I ran myself a nice hot bubble bath and then slid inti the water.I felt my body relax as i turned on the radio beside the tub just as Keith Urban’s song ‘Tonight i want to cry’ came on and i realized that is exactly how i felt at the moment.
I finished soaking in the bath then washed off and washed my hair. I stepped out and dried off before putting on my shorts and tank top.I stepped into my bedroom and turned off the lights before crawling under the covers.
I left this house not believing in love and now i would do anything to be in the arms of John
