Heather Brown just got done fixing Becky Lynch's makeup for the night. She was the new makeup stylist for SmackDown Live. She had only been working here for three weeks, and had made quite a few friends. Becky Lynch was one of them. The two of them had grown very close. Naomi and Carmella were pretty cool to hang out with, too, and so were Charlotte, Lana, and Tamina. The only woman on SmackDown Live who didn't take a shine to her was Natalya. For some reason, Natalya kept bullying her. Not physically, no, but verbally. She kept calling her all sorts of names. Fat, ugly, stupid, annoying, etc.
The words cut deep. Heather's self esteem wasn't high to begin with. She wasn't fat, but she wasn't skinny, either. She also wasn't someone whom you would describe as beautiful on the outside, but on the inside she was beautiful. Heather had long red hair, and blue eyes. She loved her hair, and even Natalya couldn't say anything negative about that.
Speaking of Natayla, her match was up next against Becky, and she walked up to get her makeup done. "Oh, great," Heather thought.
"Hey, fatso, don't take so long tonight. My match is in five minutes."
Natalya sat down, and luckily, didn't say anything until Heather was done.
"Not bad, fatso."
She got up to head to the ring for her match. All right, that did it. Heather had enough. Starting tomorrow, she was going on a diet. She was going to hit the gym hard, and wasn't going to let this witch bully her anymore. Seriously, enough was enough.
It was her dinner break, and instead of getting something fattening like she usually did, she decided to get a salad and a can of Diet Coke. No dressing on the salad, and she picked off the croutons.
As she sit in the caferteria area eating, AJ Styles walked in. He was going to be in the main event tonight against Baron Corbin. Heather and AJ had expressed pleasantries but weren't friends. They would say hi to each other, and they got along fine, but they didn't really hang out or anything. Plus, Heather figured why would a guy like AJ want to hang out with a girl like her for?
AJ got a bottle of water and walked up to her.
"Hey, Heather, is this seat taken?"
"Oh, um... No, not- not at all."
AJ smiled and sat down. "Thanks. You're a peach. Listen, earlier I overheard the things Natalya said to you. You shouldn't take that."
"I know, it's just- if I were to say anything to her, I'm afraid I would get fired, and I like this job too much. I like the traveling and talking with all of you. Even if I have to take bullying from Natalya, it's worth it."
AJ shook his head. "Look, Heather, I know we haven't talked much, but I like you. I think you're pretty cool, and I don't want to see you get hurt."
Heather was touched by AJ's words. Maybe they would become friends over time. She sure hoped so.
"I'll be okay, AJ. Honest."
"Okay, but if she gives you any more grief, talk to someone, okay?"
"Well, I better get going. My match is up next.
AJ got up and left the cafeteria. Heather couldn't help but smile. He was so sincere, and it made her feel good. Oh, well. AJ needn't worry for she was going to change everything. Finishing her dinner, she tossed it in the trash, and then went to pack up for the night.
Meanwhile, in the women's locker room, Becky Lynch and Natalya were arguing. They were still in their wrestling attire from their match earlier.
"Why do you have to be so mean to her, Nattie? She is a very nice girl."
"Please. If she got any fatter she would look like Mama Grape."
"She's not fat! You really need to stop with all of these fat jokes. First of all, they're not true, and second of all, they're not funny! Why do you hate her so much?"
"She gets on my nerves! Always so polite and such."
"Oh, yes," Becky said, sarcastically, nodding her head, "What a terrible character trait that is."
Natalya stormed out of the room, leaving Becky seething. Oh, she could not stand the ground that Natalya walked on.
NOTE: I wasn't sure who I was going to pick to be the bully in this story, so I just decided on Natalya. I have nothing against Natalya, for I am sure she's not like that in real life, it's just for my story. I have respect for her and all WWE superstars. :)
