Nothing Can Tear Us Apart

Brianna leaned back in the chair as she stared at the computer screen. Her email account was open, and for the last half hour, she was trying to figure out the best well to tell her parents that they had to pack up all of her things and wait for an address as to where to ship them. She had edited the email half a dozen times and currently stared at her latest attempt. Sighing she clicked send and propped her feet up on the table as she closed her eyes.

It was a long morning and she barely got any sleep from the night before. After curling up against John around two in the morning she was able to doze off for a good amount of time. John woke her up accidentally as he was frantically looking around the messy hotel room for his wallet. John was extremely disappointed when he realized he had woken her, he planned on bringing her some breakfast in bed.

Brianna ran her hand down her face as she got startled from her thoughts as her cell phone rang. Reaching for it on the table she flipped it open without looking at the caller id.

“Yeah?” She said quickly into the phone.


“Oh hi Stephanie,” Brianna said slowly opening her eyes “Sorry I didn’t mean to sound rude I’m exhausted.”

“It’s understandable,” Stephanie said quietly. “Look Bri I’ve got some news that I have to tell you. I figured I would be the best one to tell you.”

“Steph what’s up?” Brianna asked sitting up quickly, paying attention as her heart raced.

“You can’t leave for Springfield tomorrow like originally planned,” She said slowly trying to keep her business tone.

“What why?” Brianna demanded slowly becoming angry.

“Shane—Shane said that he wanted an excuse for writing you and Mickie out of the story lines, and that you needed to be there for Mondays show,” Stephanie said quickly.

“I—I don’t really have a choice in this do I?” Brianna sighed running her hand down her face. “How am I going to tell John? I don’t think he’s going to be happy about this.”

“Paul wasn’t when he heard about it,” Stephanie sighed removing her business tone “He wanted to kill Shane,” She laughed “But I told him to wait, most likely when you and Mickie are gone, Shane will have everyone to deal with.”

“You have no idea how happy that makes me,” Brianna giggled quietly. “I might have to tape the RAW when it’s four on one no DQ.”

“Well if only that’ll happen,” Stephanie said brightly.

“If only,” Brianna sighed looking up at the door, she heard movement and smiled as John walked in with a box full of donuts and a gallon of milk. “I gotta go Steph; I’ll come by later today okay?”

“Yeah bye,” She said quickly hanging up on the phone.

“What’s wrong?” John asked quickly placing their breakfast on the bed before rushing to her side. “What happened?”

“What makes you think something is wrong?” Brianna said trying to laugh.

“Well mostly because you’re crying,” He said worriedly as she wiped away the tears with the back of her hand—she hadn’t even noticed. “What did Steph want?”

“Looks like you’re stuck with me for another week,” She said with a fake smile.


“Shane decided he just didn’t want Mickie and Me to disappear so, he wanted a way we can be written out of the story lines,” Brianna said shrugging.

“Do you know what that means?” He asked quickly sitting across from her.

“Haven’t a clue,” She said shrugging looking at the donuts. “I’m starving.”

“Go ahead,” He smiled as she ran toward the bed opening the box of donuts quickly eating one “You shouldn’t go hungry Bri, think of the baby.”

“I know,” She said beginning to eat her second one. “I was just too freaked out to eat last night, but I’m good now.”

“How do you think Shane will write you two out of the story lines?” John asked slowly after a long pause.

“I don’t know,” She said looking up at him, shrugging, as she picked apart another donut slowly “Honestly as long as it gets me away from him I could care less.”

“He can’t touch you Bri,” John said quietly “You know he’s going to take it out on Mickie.”

“I hadn’t thought about that,” She said sitting up, placing the donut on a plate. “I just want all of this done. I never want to be in front of a camera again.”

“You mean you won’t come back after the baby?” John asked surprised.

“Why does that surprise you?” She asked quickly catching onto his tone. “Were you hoping we would be an on screen couple as well?” She laughed quietly.

“Well yes,” He said seriously as she shook her head.

“This is your field of work John not mine. It’s been fun and all but I’m not sure how long I would last in this business.” Brianna explained.

“You’ll travel with me though right?” He asked trying not to sound disappointed.

“Of course,” She smiled “When the baby is old enough.”

“But--” He stopped quickly and shook his head “Never mind.”

“Like I said John, the camera’s, the glitz, the drama, everything it’s not really me,” She shrugged again.

“You took drama classes in college,” He said matter-of-factly.

“John, drama classes is a total one-eighty from wrestling entertainment,” Brianna said trying not to sound frustrated, she couldn’t understand why he was pushing the topic now. “Please, we’ve got an entire year before we figure out what’s going to happen after the baby is born. Right now we need to think about the baby, and making sure Shane doesn’t kill you in the ring.”

“You think he’ll continue this stupid thing after you’re gone?” John laughed quietly.

“It’s Shane,” Brianna smirked “He’s easier to read than a book.”

“Good point,” John said sitting down on the bed next to her as she slowly ate her donut. He watched her quietly while she ate. All he wanted was the best for her, but it also seemed that she was trying to avoid any subject that dealt with after the baby. “It something else wrong?”

“I’m just really tired,” She said weakly “If I’m not throwing up because the baby hates what I eat, it’s that I’m so uncomfortable no matter where I lay. It’s just getting tiring that’s all.”

“I wish I could do more for you,” He said quietly as he rubbed her shoulders gently.

“You have no idea how good that feels,” Brianna sighed contently as she leaned against his touch.

“You know you shouldn’t be this stressed out,” John said kissing the back of her neck as he worked out the stiff muscles in her back. “No wonder why you are so uncomfortable at night. Your practically stiff as a board.”

“I’ve got a lot on my mind,” She said quietly closing her eyes as John continued to massage her back. Brianna was starting to relax and could feel a welcoming calm wash over her as John managed to get the last kink out of her back. “Oh that was fantastic.”

“Glad I could help,” John said kissing her neck lightly as he leaned against his chest. “I’m here for you, you know, always.”
