Title: Watching His Lover
Character: Shawn Michaels and Hunter
Pairing: Shawn/Hunter
Warnings: SLASH!
Summary: Shawn says goodbye to his long-time lover, Hunter, before heading to the ring for the very last time.

Hunter watched the wide-screen television in the men’s locker room with tears in his eyes. He still couldn’t believe that tonight was the last night he’d be working with his lover, Shawn Michaels. For a long time, he’d traveled with the famous Heartbreak Kid, telling him stories and sharing memories from long ago. But all of that was coming to an end.

He would no longer be able to hold the infamous Heartbreaker in his arms after the long, excruciating days at work or kiss him goodnight during the numerous nights they spent in hotel rooms because Shawn was retiring from professional wrestling.

Although Hunter couldn’t blame Shawn for wanting to leave the WWE, he still didn’t want to believe that Shawn was leaving him behind. But Shawn was leaving and there was nothing Hunter could do about it. Filled with anger and sadness, Hunter solemnly turned off the television and exited the locker room.

As Hunter walked down the corridor of the backstage area, he noticed Shawn hugging several fans a few feet away from where he stood. Bracing himself, Hunter took a deep breath and slowly approached the Heartbreak Kid with several thoughts racing through his mind. “Hey Shawn, mind if we talk for a sec?”

Shawn pulled away from one of his fans with a serious expression on his face. “Sure, Hunt. What’s up?”

Hunter watched the small crowd of wrestling fans walk away as he prepared to speak his mind. “Shawn, you know we have been together for a long time, and that it’s not going to be the same without you around.”

Shawn nodded, “I know it won’t be easy.”

“And I just want you to know that I’m really going to miss you, Shawn. You mean the world to me and I wish that you didn’t have to leave.” Hunter looked down at the ground for a brief moment in an attempt to hide his tears. He didn’t want Shawn to know just how much he was hurting on the inside. Despite his best efforts, though, Shawn noticed his reaction and immediately hugged him in response.

“Hunt,” Shawn began as Hunter tried his best to keep calm. “You know that I’m gonna do my best to keep in touch with you. We’ll still see each other, but I just need to take a break from all of this. It’s nothing personal, and I really don’t want anything like this to come between us.” Pulling away from the Cerebral Assassin, Shawn looked into Hunter’s eyes for a long time before continuing. “Hunter, I love you with all of my heart and there is nothing in the world that I wouldn’t do for you. You were there for me when nobody else was and you were willing to put up with me when nobody else would. And that means a lot, Hunt. You have no idea how much you helped me when I needed it, and I’ll always remember that.”

As Shawn spoke, Hunter felt the overwhelming urge to cry and after a few brief moments, he finally allowed his tears to fall. “I know that, Shawn. But I seriously wish that you didn’t have to leave so soon.”

Shawn wiped a single tear away from Hunter’s cheek as he tried to say something to help ease Hunter’s sadness. However, before he could say anything, he heard a member of backstage management call his name. In that instant, he knew it was time to say goodbye.

Without a single word, Shawn carefully wrapped his arms around Hunter’s waist and gently kissed him on the lips. Then as he gracefully pulled away from his lover’s sweet embrace, Shawn said: “Hunter, I love you and always will. Never forget that.”

Watching his lover walk away for the last time, Hunter wiped away a single tear from his cheek before returning to the men’s locker room.

The End.
