The camera faded and revealed GHW EVO season II rookie Amanda Brooks sitting alone at a bar. She still had some tears that trickled down her face. She looked back and forth between the door and her still full drink infront of her. She twirled the straw inbetween her finger and thumb. By this time she had called Seth a few times, but unfortunately since his suspension and ban from GHW she had not heard a word. She needed some company and not in the bedroom like it would have been before him. Hell for that matter before Jade, she had recently spent a night with her without anything physical happen. Dispite her best efforts she was actaully seeing a lot of good in her fellow brit. She could not stand to remember what she had said to Jade or about her. The worst part was she felt so bad for it. She sat there with left hand supporting her head, trying to make excuses for the things that have happened. She blamed herself for all of it though she would never admit. She was so far into her thoughts that pretty much ever guy there had recieved a cold shoulder when they attempted to talk to her. She just wanted one person, one genuine person.
The door opens and AJ Scally walks in he has got his down and looks to be talking to himself, perhaps psyching himself up in preparations. However he lifts his head up when he hears his name.
AJ turns to see none other than Amanda sitting by herself looking pretty sad, he can see a small amount of tears, he notices a spare seat and sits next her. All his previous plans have flown out the door and Scally couldn’t care less if he notices a friend or acquaintance he will help them.
AJ: What’s wrong Amanda?
TBC Amanda, oh if you have me get a drink at all, make it non-alcoholic.

She patted the seat next to her. She knew Scally from GHW, but all she knew was he was her old flames Pro. She really didn't care right now. She also didn't care to talk about what was bothering her. She decided to quickly change the conversation. She looked at the bartender and pointed to Scally.
Amanda: Add whatever 'e's 'aving to mah order luv. Thanks.
Bartender: You haven't even touched your first one yet.
Amanda: I said add whatever 'e's 'aving to mah order. Not get me another drink you moron.
The bartender looked at the slender man and shook his head.
Bartender: What'll be?
Scally: Orange Juice.
Bartender: Coming right up.
As the bartender brought Aj's drink to him Amanda turned to him with a questioning look on her face.
Amanda: What brings you 'ere anyway 'un? You don't drink do you?
She awaited his response with an eyebrow raised. She was curious as to why he was there, but also it was more shock to see him there.

She gives him a half-hearted smile before she turned back to the drink and played with the straw some more. It was nice to know Jade wasn't the only one she helped recently. She knew she should hate her just due to the fact they were rival competitors on EVO, but at the same time she just couldn't. She turned back to Aj and tilted her head. He was shy around women? She couldn't tell that much from him now.
Amanda: Well... Little miss...
She stopped. The only reason for it was simply the fact she knew better than to say what was going to follow next.
Amanda: She's 'elping you out. That sounds familiar. And to answer your question no where else to go. I 'aven't 'eard from your old rookie since 'e was suspeneded. I can't believe I fell for this again.
She turned back to her drink and began to poke at the straw. It was about time she actually drank the thing so she took the straw out and lifted the glass to her lips, taking a small sip. It had gotten warm, but in ways she didn't care as she sat it back down on the counter. She turned back to Scally.
Amanda: So what about these confidence classes are they 'elping any?
She again tilted her head waiting for his response.
AJ: Well I’m not stuttering or stammering through my words at the moment.
AJ laughs a little maybe trying to lighten the mood; Amanda can manage a little smile.
AJ: They are helping, but they are not really for this situation. I mean after high school and wrestling training I could talk to girls ok, but it is just the umm…picking up part so to speak, you know the telling them they are pretty and they look good, wondering if they wanted a drink or something. I would always struggle, stutter, blush and look away most times. Especially if they were attractive, I would always get shy and nervous.
AJ takes another sip of his OJ before adding.
AJ: I’m surprised I’m not shy or nervous at the moment.
AJ smirks, hoping the Brit would get the sly compliment. He takes another sip of juice while waiting for Amanda to say something else.

Amanda gave him a smile. She had to admit Aj had a little something that set him apart from the others. He was cute, but not in the ways she would normally notice. She looked into his eyes for a moment. There was something there, but she couldn't put her finger on it.
Amanda: Thanks luv. I'm nothing special as a few 'ave shown me multiple times. And I 'ave to admit you're cute. Sorry to say though I'm not in the mood to be picked up, but wouldn't mind the company if you aren't busy.
In ways she hoped that what she said made since. Yeah she thought he was attractive, but after what happened with the guy before... She wasn't taking any over the top chances.
AJ: No, I understand I didn’t know you were going to be here and after seeing you sad, no good person would try and pick you up so to speak in this state. Also those men are idiots if they don’t see something special in you.
AJ takes another sip of his OJ before continuing.
AJ: Look, you are an umm…pretty girl and should be treated right. This is not a “pick up line” I am just telling you the truth.
Scally takes a deep breath as he was able to complete a compliment with a minor stumble. He takes another sip of OJ and notices a dance floor.
AJ: Hey lets get your mind off this, do you want to umm… heh dance with me?
AJ waited for the Brit’s response while showing here a caring smile, he still showed some shyness but not as bad as before his lessons.

Amanda eyed the dance floor for a second and then turned back to Aj. His smile had a certain grace to it. She returned it.
Amanda: When you put it like that luv...
Scally prepared for his first shut down, but the brit suprised him.
Amanda: 'ow can a girl refuse?
She polished off what was left of her drink and grabbed his hand, more or less dragging him to the floor. She wasn't one of those delicate types that Jade was preparing him for. As they reached the floor though the music changed from a fast upbeat song to something a little slower. She looked back to Aj who looked even more nervous now than when the conversation started. She had two options either live in the moment or let the moment slip by. To Hell if she was going to let that happen. She pulled him the last step onto the floor, position his hands on her hips, and wrapped her arms around him. The barely moved at first, but she slowly moved to the rythem of the song and before Aj realized it so was he. Amanda glanced up at him with a smile on her face.

Was she? Was she feeling better? She smiled a hiim, a small wave of innocence showing. She was like the girl who was with her high school crush at Prom. She wanted to lie and say no, but couldn't get her mouth to move. Instead she held him tighter and looked up.
Amanda: Yea'... I just 'ope I 'aven't ruined your plans for the evening. But then again if dancing with me to get other girls interested was it I think it worked.
She nodded to a burnet that was staring daggers through her from the bar.
Amanda: What do you say luv? Stay 'ere or go see if the grass is greener?
She held him closer while saying it. She might have forced the words out, but she made it obvious what she wanted him to do right now.

She thought about it for a moment as another song came on. She looked into his eyes for a moment. Was she actually being her true self or the manipulative one her pro wanted? She had gotten what she wanted from the Aussie, but was it because of trick, looks, or how she moved? That was a question that pounded in her head. She came to the bar tonight to drink away her pain and confusion, but all it took was one dance and the pain was gone. She stared into his eyes a moment longer.
Amanda: We are 'ere already. So why not?
With that said they danced again and she placed her head against his chest. As they moved to the beat of the song she had something she just had to let him know. She looked up at him again.
Amanda: You are a great dancer 'un. 'ow can you be so shy around women knowing you can move like that?
She awaited a response, not sure if he'd tell a joke or what would follow.
AJ thought about it for a little bit before replying.
AJ: I don’t know really, again it was the talking part, for me there was always a fear of rejection and then as I never got to a stage where we danced nobody, even I for a while didn’t know I could dance like that.
AJ could see a few more girls staring at him, but he couldn’t care less he had a beautiful woman with him right now, someone who didn’t laugh when some of his shyness came through. They continued dancing for a while before AJ asked a question.
AJ: Since I have told you a bit about me, can I ask how you got into wrestling?
The two continued swaying as AJ waited hoping maybe he can start with smaller question before Amanda would maybe open up a bit more.

Amanda thought about it for a second. She smlied more this was a part of her past that she didn't mind talking about.
Amanda: Well luv. When I was eighteen I went to my first event with a "friend" and since then I was 'ooked. I found the first school that would take me and started training. And of course where I trained the men and women 'ad to do it the same way. But I 'ave to admit my first training session with mah Pro made that look like child's play.
Now she knew from earlier that he started training in high school, but what shed didn't know was what made him want to be a wrestler in the first place.
Amanda: When did you decide wrestling was the right career for you?
It was curiousity that was winning over on her end, but it could also be considered comfort in a way. She looked him and awaited a response.
