June 20th, 2008

The car door slamed shut, and he found himself in an all to familiar spot. With his sunglasses on, his slacks, white button down t-shirt, he was ready to continue on his trek. He had made it plenty of times before, but never under such circumstances as today. Today was different, simply because he hadn't done it in so long. The last time he had made the trip up to Roxy's office, at the BUD Headquarters in Chicago was to hand in his resignation. Once she heard the circumstances, she agreed to void his contract. Of course, there was still a match to be taken care of. There were to be no loose ends, it was supposed to be done discretely, and since 4:20's card had already been anounced, he would have to take a fall to his opponent, Leaky Format. After all Zarek had been through, taking an intention plunge didn't matter, all that mattered was that he had to leave, and it didn't matter what he had to do. So he took the dive, and he was questioned for it. The ending could have been made a bit more real, he could have atleast won his PPV match like he would have done anyway. Instead, he fled with a lose to someone he had beaten several times over, and why? That's what everyone was asking. Zarek quietly took his exited, as he had talked about with BUD management, but an eyebrow was still raised? Why would Zarek Lyle lose to Leaky Format? Why were there no words from him before he left? The fans were lead to believe that he randomly quit, and it was true, but only partly. There had been a specific circumstance that allowed him to do so. As much as he loved BUD, now was the only time that he would be able to leave without feeling any remorse whatsoever. A bomb had exploded in his life, which forced him to leave as quickly as humanly possible. But now, everything was out in the open, and everybody wanted to know. Somehow, someone had caught Zarek on the streets of New York, and exposed him. There were more eyebrows eaised than ever, and there was no getting around an explanation. He had recieved calls from several people wondering what was going on, how he supposily had a child. It just didn't make any sense to them, and Zarek understood. Now living with the decision for months, he didn't fully understand the situation yet himself. He expected his departure to be quiet, with only few people knowing, and the bare minimum knowing and that would be that. However, he was foolish. Very foolish to think that he would be able to escape the questions, and escape the spotlight that had shined so bright on him previously. It was time for him to come out into the open, but more than that, it was time for him to explain exactly what had happened. It was time for him to shed some light on the reason why he left BUD, his supposed child, and the reasons he went into hiding. Most of all, he would have to explain Vivica Stone.

The echoing of a familiar voice brought him out of his trance, "Zarek? Zarek Lyle? Oh my gosh, I haven't seen you in forever, how have you been?"

She brushed up against him, and the two soon embraced in a hug. He took in a deep breath, as if he found her arms to be a sure sign on home. She was still wearing the same perfume as usual, though she looked a bit different. Looks didn't change a person, especially this one. She had always been the kind, smiling face he came out to the ring every night. He found her more enjoyable than most of the people on the roster, with much more class, as well. Seeing her here, it was definitely a sign that he was in the right place. He knew he was, but just incase he had somehow taken a wrong exit, he was sure he didn't now.

"Lilly. Long time no see. How have you been? What have you been up too?"

"Oh, nothing to much, just the same old thing. This job never gets tiring, but I could very well ask you the same question."

"Errr..." "I've been doing really good, I've just had a little time off and whatnot. But I never could stay away from this place very long."

"So you're here at BUD headquarters, visiting Roxy I would imagine. That's a good thing. Will I be anouncing the great Zarek Lyle again anytime soon?"

"I'm not sure, in the end that's up to Roxy. All in all, I don't think I'm ready to fully come back just yet. I have a few more things I need to take care of before I go traveling around the world again. Maybe under some development type thing until I get on my feet again."

"I see, I see. So there's hope, I like. The domain has been too long without the cheerful face of Mr. Lyle."

"You think to highly of me, Lilly."

"No, no. I'm a good judge of character, always have been, it's not very hard to judge that you'll always be a good guy."

"Hmm...I'd like to think so."

"I'm guessing you've seen that rumor article that was written about you. It said here was a kid in the car, but I didn't see one." "I know it's bogus."


"Zarek..." "Where have you been?"


"Zarek, this is a surprise." you?" "Excuse us Lilly, but we have some official buisness t take care of."


"So Zarek, how has the time off being doing for you?"

"It's been doing wonders. I reallly needed the time away, to get used to everything, you know? This is new for me, this whole thing is incredibly new to me. I'm still pretty young, and I shouldn't be in this situation. Although it's been a rollercoaster, I don't regret it, not one bit. It may have thrown me threw a loop in the beginning, but I wouldn't trade it to be Heavyweight champ. The two don't even compare." "And by reading the rumor articles, I suppose you know a bit about that, don't you?"

"We're not here to talk about me Zarek, we're here to talk about you. I want to know what's on your mind."

"Well I know MOD is coming up, and a lot of former BUD stars are coming back. I want in, I wouldn't miss it for the world."

"Great. You know you're always welcome. Were you just planning on staying for MOD in a few months, or after that as well, maybe even before that?"

"I'm not sure Rox, we'll have to see. I only have daycare for a certain amount of time."

"Speaking of daycare, where is he?"

"He's visiting his grandma right now, on his mom's side. She's been a real help, and surpringly, she's very involved in his life. Which is good. My mother passed away when I was young, so atleast he has some sort of motherly figure in his life."

"How has he been? Brycen, right?"

"Yep. Brycen Alexander. He's been doing good. He's such a little trooper. I'm not sure he knows exactly what happened. I'd give anything to be that age again. To not have a care in the world."

"How old is he now?"

"He just turned four in May. He's already getting so big. I've missed so much."
