So, as a gift to me for updating when I should be studying for finals...I would like some reviews please!
Ella followed John into the hotel room, giving him a weak smile as she plopped down on one of the double beds. They had just gotten back on the road, Ella having spent the rest of her time off at John's house with him and Randy.
"Thanks again for all you've done John. It really means a lot to me."
"I really don't mind. Sharing my hotel room with a beautiful woman, who would argue?" He said giving her a smile.
After finding out that Chris was off probation, John had called Vince and told him what had been going on, giving him a brief history of this Chris guy. Vince and John decided that it would be best if Gabriella traveled with him, sharing a hotel room with him also. It would be good for the story line and for Gabriella's safety.
"I hope that this was just some sick joke and is over now. It was probably just some crazed fan or something. I hate being a bother about this." She said sitting up.
"Ella, you are not a bother about anything. There is some freak out there that obviously has an obsession with you. We are doing this for your safety not because we have to but because we want to. We all care too much about you to let something happen to you." John said sitting next to her.
Ella looked up at him before hugging him, catching him off guard. He smiled as he hugged her back. "How about we go get something to eat. I don't know about you but I am starving."
"You and your stomach. I swear you are always eating." She laughed.
"Hey. I got to keep my stamina up somehow." He said pulling her up. "Come on. I saw this good looking diner about 3 blocks away. I could smell the goodness when we got to the hotel."
Ella sighed and grabbed her wallet as she followed John out the door.
"So John, are you going to use that number?" She asked laughing after they got out of the diner.
"No." He said crumpling it and putting it in a trash can. "I don't swing that way."
"He was cute though." She said clearing her throat. "Excuse me Mr. Cena, but I just couldn't help but admire you from my seat over there and just wanted to invite you to a little party over at my house later. A private party just for you." She said laughing. "I just about lost it when he gave you that wink."
"Yeah, yeah. I'm glad I could be your entertainment for the evening." He said reaching over and ruffling her hair.
"Hey! What have I told you about messing up my hair?"
"I know, I know. Only in the bedroom." He said, earning a punch to the arm. "Ouch."
"Well you deserved it. Oh look, ice cream." John laughed as he saw her run across the street to an ice cream vendor at the park. He walked over to join her as she handed him a cone.
"How did you know I wanted some?"
"Oh please, like you ever turn down food." She said walking into the park.
"I guess you're right."
They continued walking for a while, stopping every once in a while to sign some autographs.
"I will never get past the fact that I am considered famous now and that people want my autograph." John said sitting down on a hill. "People look up to me like I am some sort of super hero. I'm really just a regular guy that enjoys wrestling and entertaining people."
"I know the feeling. Back when I was younger if anyone would have told me that one day I will be a world famous model and a wrestler for the WWE, I would have told them they were crazy and that they were talking about the wrong girl. I never pictured myself as successful as I am now."
"You have worked hard for everything you have and you should be very proud of yourself. Jay is always telling me how proud of you he is, he really looks up to you." John said looking out at the sunset.
"Yeah, I never want to do something that will make him ashamed of me. Wait a minute. Jay? You talk to Jay?" She said looking over at John.
John silently cursed himself for letting that slip. He looked over at Ella to see her looking at him with a questionable look on her face.
"Well, I've talked to him a few times." He said, treading lightly.
"How often is a few times?" John mumbled something. "Come again?"
"About once a week or so."
"How long have you been talking to my brother?"
"Well, we are actually pretty good friends. He gave me your number at the signing and his too."
"That's how you got my number! That little shit! I'm going to get him for that one."
"Be nice. He is a great kid and he really looks up to you. He is so proud of you and everything that you have done. He is proud to say that his sister is Gabriella Alloy." He looked over at her to see tears in her eyes. "What's wrong?"
"I was afraid he would not like me because of what I do. Not too many boys would be proud to say that their sister is an underwear model. I just want to be a good role model for him and make sure he doesn't go down the wrong paths in life."
"And you are doing a great job. He is so proud of you. The first thing he always asks me whenever I call is how you are doing. He worries about you."
Ella smiled and shook her head. "I still can't believe you call my brother weekly."
"Well, I'm like his go to guy. We talk about man stuff that he doesn't want to talk to your mom about. I'm just happy that he trusts me enough come to me with his questions. A guy's got to have someone he can turn to. If that someone is me, then it's just another purpose I can serve in my life."
Ella smiled as she reached over and hugged John. "Thank you. For everything." She whispered.
"I'm always here for you Ella." He said as she pulled away.
Ella looked up at him, seeing the compassion in his eyes and smiled. John watched as she shifted herself so she was straddling his lap. He looked at her, a confused expression on his face. She smiled at him as she placed her hands on his face and brought his lips to hers.
