__;; Holy hell. Looks like Angela Stewart is going to get her wish after all...sooner than I think anyone anticipated for. Which is just fine with me. The sooner Adalyn can kick this bitch's ass...the sooner we can all move on with our lives. I mean, you gotta figure that after Angela gets her ass handed to her twice by Adalyn Raine that the girl will finally realize that she is shit compared to her and find somebody else to harass. Unless of course she wants to keep playing this game of cat and mouse and making a fool of herself. And if that is the case, then so be it...if she likes adding losses to her record, then I'm sure as hell not going to stop her. Now, don't get me wrong...I know this match isn't going to be a blow off of any sorts...Angela is some damn good competition, I'll give the bitch that much. All the same Adalyn is still better than her, and she's already proved that once before...and come this Tuesday on Rampage, she is going to prove it again by being the last woman standing.
__;; Hershey, Pennsylvania is set to be the home for the upcoming Rampage show, but at this very moment, Adalyn is on a plane headed towards Detroit, Michigan. Pennsylvania is the closest venue destination that WGEF has had to her hometown since she signed up with the company, so she figured that she would take full advantage of the situation and stop by to see her family for a day or two before having to head back to the Giant Center to get ready for her match against Angela Stewart. Adalyn is of course seated in the first class section of the airplane, in fact she bought the seats next to her as well, just so she wouldn't have to worry about some random asshole sitting there. She has a Vogue magazine in her hands, and headphones in her ears as she tries to ignore the seemingly boring and useless people around her in the other aisle. The flight attendant is starting to walk down the aisle and stops at Adalyn's seat. She clears her throat to get her attention, as Adalyn sighs and takes out one of the earpieces.
Adalyn Raine;; Yes? Can I help you?
Flight Attendant;; *she smiles* Actually, I just wanted to ask if you could please shut off your electronic device...we're preparing to land. Oh, and please put on your seatbelt as well.
Adalyn Raine;; Alright, no problem. I'll be sure to do that.
Flight Attendant;; Thank you so much miss for your cooperation.
__;; Adalyn smiles back at the flight attendant as she turns to walk away. Once she is out of ear shot, Adalyn mumbles "bitch" under her breathe and then fastens her seatbelt...but she continues to listen to her music on her ipod.
__;; About an hour later, after the plane has landed and Adalyn has sent someone to retrieve her bags, we find her in the backseat of a limo, instructing the driver to take her to Canton, Michigan...the place where her family now resides. While in the limo, Adalyn hears "Shake It" by Metro Station going off inside of her Dooney and Burke purse. She unzips her bag and reaches inside, searching for only a moment before pulling out her pink Sidekick. It's a call from her mother...probably checking to see if her flight has landed.
Adalyn Raine;; Hey mom!
Maria Crane;; Hello Madeline! Was the flight okay?
Adalyn Raine;; Yeah mom, it was cool. Pretty much the shortest flight ever, going from Pennsylvania to Michigan.
Maria Crane;; So, are you on your way now to the house?
Adalyn Raine;; Yeah...It's on Smith street right?
Maria Crane;; Yeah that's right. How far away are you?
Adalyn Raine;; Um, I dont know...let me ask the driver...
__;; Adalyn pulls the phone away from her ear slightly as she calls out to the driver.
Adalyn Raine;; Hey, excuse me...but how much longer until we reach the house?
Driver;; It should only be about another fifteen minutes ma'am.
Adalyn Raine;; Alright, thanks!
__;; Adalyn now places her phone back up to her ear as she continues her conversation with her mom.
Adalyn Raine;; Okay, so he says that we're about fifteen minutes away.
Maria Crane;; Oh, is that all? *she giggles softly* Alright, well then I'll let you go sweetie and see you when you get here.
Adalyn Raine;; Okay mom, sounds good. I love you...tell dad that I love him too.
Maria Crane;; I'll be sure to do that. See you soon Ady.
Adalyn Raine;; ...See you soon mom. Bye.
__;; Adalyn hangs up her phone and places it back inside her purse. She then sits back in her seat, relaxing a bit as she asks the driver to change the station on the radio to channel 95.5 and turn the volume up as "Damaged" by Danity Kane starts to play through the speakers. Adalyn sings along to the song, passing time until she finally reaches her destination.
__;; Twenty minutes later the limo finally pulls up into the long driveway of the beutiful home belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Crane. Adalyn rolls down her window, peeking her head out as she gets a good look at it. She had yet to see her parents new home, since their move out of Detroit. Adalyn had to admit that the house was nice...not exactly her kind of taste, but it suited her parents none the less, and seeing as how it was just the two of them they didn't need a mansion...though this was the closest thing to it. The limo pulls to a stop in front of the entrance as the driver gets out and opens Adalyn's door. She steps out gracefully, her purse resting on her shoulder as she makes her way over to the front door. In the meantime, the driver gets out her bags and brings them up to the door. Adalyn rings the door bell, all for a butler to answer a second later. The man smiles at Adalyn as she returns the gesture.
Charles Kerry;; Hello little Madeline! It has been ages since I've seen you around these parts!
Adalyn Raine;; Oh I know! I've just been so god damn busy with all the modeling gigs and now WGEF....havn't had anytime for family.
Maria Crane;; Watch your mouth young lady!
__;; This voice belonged to none other than Adalyn's mom as she appears behind Charles in the doorway. She has a teasing smile on her face as Adalyn's eyes widen a bit in pleasant surprise.
Adalyn Raine;; Mom! I've missed you so much!
Maria Crane;; Ah, I've missed you too sweetie! Well, come on then...step inside, it's rather chilly out there, and we don't want you getting sick right before your big match on Rampage.
__;; Adalyn didn't need to be convinced any further as she smiles and quickly steps inside, the driver following closely behind with the bags. Charles notices him and offers to take the bags from him in exchange for a tip for driving Adalyn to the house. The driver hands over the bags and takes his money gratefully, before bidding them all a good day and walking out as Charles closes the door behind him. Adalyn who at the moment is embracing her mother with a tight hug, suddenly pulls away when she sees her father standing on the foot of the stairs. He too has a smile on his face as he makes his way over to her. She can't help but smile back...because just like her, he had one of those contagious smiles. I guess she must get that genuine smile from his side of the family. She meets him halfway across the room before the two meet each other with a giant hug.
Adalyn Raine;; Daddy! I've missed you so much!
Alex Crane;; And I've missed my little princess! *he pulls back and kisses her on the forehead as he smiles down on her* So, how as my Ady been?
Adalyn Raine;; She's been fabulous! Ever since I've joined WGEF, my name has been all over the place...
Alex Crane;; *he laughs* Madeline...your name was already all over the place, even before you chose that as your second career.
Adalyn Raine;; Oh I know...but now I don't think there is a soul on the face of this earth that hasn't heard of "thee infamous Adalyn Raine."
Alex Crane;; *he smiles* Well, I'm glad to hear that my daughter has made quite a name for herself. I'm also glad that she still takes time out to visit the family that introduced her to her first love. *he smirks* Speaking of which, I thought that you would be happy to know that I booked you a photoshoot with that famous photographer from Detroit...
Adalyn Raine;; Daddy, you didn't! You don't mean...
Alex Crane;; Oh, but I do...
Adalyn Raine;; ...so it is Fingers Crossed?!
Alex Crane;; The one and only!
__;; Adalyn gets a huge grin on her face as she pulls her dad in for another hug. She wasn't expecting to hear such good news upon her arrival back home...it had been years since she had gotten to work with him, and to finally be "reunited" with him was fabulous news. As she pulls away from her dad, she still has a smile on her face as she speaks.
Adalyn Raine;; I still cannot believe that you managed to book me a photoshoot with Fingers Crossed!
Alex Crane;; *he smiles* Only the best for my little girl.
Adalyn Raine;; So when exactly is this photoshoot?
Alex Crane;; Tonight at nine o'clock. *he looks down at his watch* It's only five now, so you have plenty of time before you have to leave and meet him in Windsor.
Adalyn Raine;; Alright, perfect. *she pauses for a moment* Would you guys care if I go upstairs and take a shower...I feel like I need to be refreshed after that flight.
Maria Crane;; Of course not hunny...go on and freshen up, when you come down we will have dinner and then after that you can leave for the photoshoot. *she smiles* Oh, and your room is on the left, the second door down.
Adalyn Raine;; Okay thanks mom...see you guys in a bit. *she looks over at Charles* Hey, Charlie...would you mind carrying my bags up to my room?
Charles Kerry;; Of course not...lead the way!
__;; Adalyn smiles and then turns to head upstairs, with Charles following closely behind with her two bags. Once at the top of the stairs, she turns to the left, remembering her mom's directions as she reaches the second door, turning the knob and opening it before stepping inside. It was a big room, painted in whisper pink, with the trim in a pale white. The room was furnished with a full size bed, nightstand, dresser, bookshelf, desk and vanity...along with a walk in closet and a door that leads into a master size bathroom. Charles now walks inside and sets her bags down beside the bed before turning to look at her.
Charles Kerry;; Will you be needing anything else Madeline?
Adalyn Raine;; No, Charlie...that will be all for right now...hanks for carrying my bags though.
Charles Kerry;; *he smiles* Alright, well if you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask.
Adalyn Raine;; Okay Charlie...I'll see you at dinner.
__;; Charles nods his head and smiles again before gracefully exiting the room and shutting the door behind him, leaving Adalyn alone. She lets out a small breath of air as she paces around the room, taking it all in. She then throws herself onto the bed, falling down on her back where she collided with half a dozen down pillows and a plush comforter. She laid there for a moment, just relaxing when she remembered that she had that photoshoot to go to in a few hours, which meant she should probably go ahead and take her shower. Sitting up, she swings her legs over the edge of the bed, letting them dangle there for a moment before jumping down and walking over to her suitcase. Unzipping her bag she reaches in and grabs some clothes before heading over to the master bathroom, shutting the door behind her as the scene fades out for a moment giving her some privacy.
__;; Thirty minutes later the scene opens back up with Adalyn walking out of the bathroom, fully clothed and her hair pulled up into a messy bun, seeing as how it is still wet from the shower. She is wearing a Jessica Louise Leopard print mini dress with a black waist belt. After throwing her old clothes in a dirty clothes hamper, she heads backinside the bathroom to blowdry her hair. Halfway through the process of doing this, she hears a knock at her bed room door. She turns off the blowdryer and calls out to whoever is on the other side.
Adalyn Raine;; Yeah? What is it?
Charles Kerry;; Madeline, there is someone here that wishes to see you...
__;; A confused expression washes over Adalyn's face as she tries to figure out who could possibly be here to see her....wait, maybe it was her childhood friend Clarissa...but how would she know that she was here? Ah, mom and dad must of told her! Adalyn comes to this conclusion, the confusion leaving her face as she smiles and calls back out to Charles.
Adalyn Raine;; Alright, send them in!
__;; Adalyn then turns the blowdryer back on, kind of shrugging off the idea of whoever has come to see her, as she hears the faint squeeking of the door opening, signaling that the person is now in the room. Adalyn turns her head to greet the person, only to find out that is not Clarissa...in fact it's not even someone that Adalyn would call a friend...it's fucking Matthew Green. Adalyn jumps a bit, which causes the blowdryer to be pulled out of the socket.
Adalyn Raine;; Shit! ...What the fuck are you doing here?!
Matthew Green;; Well, none of us were sure if you would be back at the arena in time for someone to interview you, so I took the initiative to go ahead and find you here in Detroit to get the scoop on your upcoming match against Angela Stewart
__;; At this point, Adalyn's mouth is hanging open just a tad as she listens to him speak. First of all, how the hell did he know she was in Michigan. Secondly, how did he figure out where her parents lived? And Lastly, just why the fuck did he deem it necessary to "stalk" her?
Adalyn Raine;; Okay, seriously...you need to get the fuck out of my parent's house. This is just ridiculous! Following me all the way to Michigan, just so you can be thee first to interview me! Bitch, if I want to be interviewed, I will take my happy ass back to the arena with enough time to spare for one. But this is on the verge of stalking me!
Matthew Green;; I'm sorry that you feel that way, but truly this interview is vital...I mean you are apart of Rampage's headlining match after all. Don't you think that you owe the fans and everyone else in the business deserve to hear a bit about your feelings and personal intake on this match-up?
Adalyn Raine;; *she does a little laugh before speaking* I don't owe anyone shit! If the fans or anyone else want to hear what I have to say about Angela Stewart, then you all will just have to wait till I get back to Hershey, Pennsylvania. *she looks over at the clock on the bedside table* I have a photoshoot to attend in three hours, and I'll be damned if you think your going to make me late for it.
Matthew Green;; So, you think that some photoshoot is more important than an interview?
Adalyn Raine;; First of all, it's not just some photoshoot...this guy happens to make more money in an hour than you could probably every make in your pathetic existance. And Secondly, yes..yes I do think that a photoshoot is more important than some dumb ass interview, where all your going to do is ask me questions like "So, how do you feel about Angela?" Or "What's it like to be apart of a last woman standing match?" I mean fuck! You all sound like fucking psychologists! And I'm not getting paid to have someone stalk me and figure out me "feelings" about a match. If I wanted to be psychoanalyzed, I would of signed up for some test expirement and get paid from them jokers...but instead I'm a model and a professional wrestler, and unless you want me to have a little practice match before the real thing Tuesday night, I suggest that you leave right now!
__;; Matthew's eyes widen ever so slightly as he starts to edge his way back over to the door.
Matthew Green;; So, not even one question....?
Adalyn Raine;; No! Get the hell out!
__;; Adalyn points furiously in the direction of the door, her hand shaking in anger as he finally gets the picture and quickly leaves the room. She shakes her head, cursing under her breath as she plugs her blowdryer back in. She goes back to drying her hair as the scene fades out.
__;; The scene opens back up with Adalyn walking down the stairs, her hair now fully dry and sraightened to perfection. She has a smile on her face as the heavenly scents drifting in from the kitchen hit her nose. She was just about to call out her mother, saying something along the lines of "boy whatever your cooking sure smells good...." when she gets caught off guard by a very familiar voice coming from inside the kitchen. Adalyn pauses on the bottom of the stairs as she tries to place the voice with the person...and when she finally does so, she shakes her head slightly in disbelief. Surely, it cannot be the person she thinks it is....not unless this person really had a death wish or something. Adalyn now finishes the last flight of stairs and walks into the kitchen, only to find thee only and only Matthew Green sitting at the table, laughing and talking with her parents. Adalyn's mouth drops in surprise but then recloses quickly as a wave of frustration washes over her.
Adalyn Raine;; What in thee hell is he doing here?!
TBC by me only [if i have time]
