Part VI, Section I:
Bret's POV-

Just look at him…..he looks so cute! Wait-cute? No I did NOT just think that! Man, am I on some kind of drugs? I must be, because usually I wouldn't be thinking this way about him! I am supposed to HATE HIM for crying out loud! Not LIKE him! What has happened to me? Better yet, what IS happening to me? Am I under some kind of spell? Come to think of it, maybe I am…..but also, is he? I can't help but remember how he had acted last night-acting all drugged up or something…oh, wait a minute…..could he…..? Nah…he couldn't be a druggie…he's the most sober man that I've known, he's SHAWN MICHAELS! Surely, he couldn't be using drugs…..could he? And as if on cue, either that or he can really read minds, he begins to stir and slowly opens his eyes.

"Good evening, sleepy head!" I call out. He lifts his head and smiles back at me.

"Grr…what time is it? Is it already in the evening?"

"Yea…it's," I turn to look at the clock on the night stand-holy shit, it's already 8pm! "Its 8pm. Oh my god!" Shawn lifts his upper body from underneath the covers and peers around the room for a brief moment.

"Holy cow….did, did you miss the whole hockey game that was on earlier?" Oh yea, now I remember! We had turned off the television in the 'heat of the moment'. But hey, it was better than any hockey game could ever be!

"Yea, but it's alright…..they'll probably have some replays on later in the week." He turns and looks at me. Oh man, he looks like he's sad, what is wrong with him?

"No, I'm sorry for acting the way I did before…but I couldn't help it…..I just love my Home and Garden…" Oh, and he's gonna be making up for that later, I can guarantee that!

"More than you love me?" I ask, with a sad expression.

"No, of course not! I love you more, silly!" I still can't believe this is even happening. Here we are, in the middle of a hotel room bed, talking like we're long time lovers! This just isn't right! But come to think of it, I wouldn't have it any other way. I smile at him, letting him know that I feel the same way.

"You mean that, don't you?" I finally question him. I can't help it; I always have to know for sure he's telling the truth.

"Yes, I do… love me too, right?"

"Of course…..after last night, you have me hooked!" I kiss him softly on the cheek, and we both fall silent for a few minutes. Just what had happened to him last night? I still can't help but wonder….. "Hey, Shawn?"


"What was wrong with you last night?" I hope he doesn't take that the wrong way. I do actually care for him now, it's just well, the way the words had came out of my mouth, it sounded like something completely different.

"What do you mean, 'wrong with me'? I don't think there was anything wrong with me last night. Why? Do you think so?" Well, obviously he remembers last night like the back of his own hand, but how could he NOT know something was wrong with him? He was stumbling around this place like a zombie!

"Shawn, what I mean is, you came out of that bathroom last night after getting dressed and all, stumbling around like you were, were DRUNK! Like you had ingested something awful. You mean to tell me, you don't remember that?" I then see him shake his head from side to side…..oh boy.

"No, I don't remember doing anything like that…." Wow, and he sounds honest there, too. I cannot believe this!

"Shawn, tell me the truth," gosh, I feel like a parent talking to a teenager by the way my voice sounds right now, "did you ingest anything last night?"

"Ingest anything? Bret-what are you talking about?" Ok, so maybe he doesn't know…..ok, I'll just go right out and say it! God, I hope he doesn't get mad at me.

"Shawn, did you take any kind of drugs last night?" There, I asked it. I watch him carefully, and then I see something unmistakable; his face turning pale….throughout my years of working with this man, I have learned that his face turning pale either meant that he is either lying or scared….and by the looks of his facial expression now, I'd be daring to say it is probably a mix of the two. "Shawn…please be honest with me."

"Uh, no…I don't remember doing anything like that last night, I swear!" Could he be telling the truth? I wonder….

"Ok," I say, sighing under my breath, "I'll take your word for it…" I slowly let my arms fall toward his chest area, while staring straight ahead; trying not to let the possibility of him lying get to me.

"What? You do believe me, don't you? I mean, come on…." He almost sounds like he's begging for forgiveness. Maybe he isn't telling the truth after all.

"Shawn…..I am just going to say that you appeared extremely tired last night….that's all I am going to tell you; but if you so insist that you didn't take drugs, then I'll take your word for it." He turns to face me, and gives a slight smile.

"…..Ok, thanks….." The smile quickly fades from his facial features as he props himself off of the bed for a brief moment and holds the small of his back almost gritting his teeth in pain. I ask him what's wrong, and he responds with: "Uh, it's nothing, really, I sometimes just get these pains in my back. It will fade away in a few minutes, don't worry." And true to his word, a few minutes later, the pain seems to fade as he lies back down beside me. If only I would have known that that wasn't necessarily the case.

Shawn's POV-

Should I tell him? No, I won't…I can't have him worrying about me like that-much less letting the word get out. I am still in pain, damn it! It won't go away, but I can't show Bret what I'm really feeling, otherwise he'll know for sure that I'm not telling the truth. As much as it hurts me to actually lie to this man's face, I personally feel it's for the best. But what if he finds out? Oh god…..I will never hear the end of that one from him or anyone else for that matter! My god, these pains down my lower back…..

I don't know how much longer I will be able to tolerate the pain without him noticing the tears that are threatening to fall down my cheeks here in a few minutes. Believe me, I am trying my hardest not to scream from the pain right now! I only wish I could be truthful to him about it, but I know him too well….if he actually cares about me like he claims, he will start yelling at me, and then it's down to hell from there. I don't want to hurt his feelings or lose his trust, but I just lied to his face for Pete's sake! What do I say if he finds out the truth? What am I worrying about this for? He won't find out, not if I can keep it a secret at least. I still cannot believe that I am with him even after a full 24 hours! I thought for sure that I was going to end up punching the living daylights out of him, which I did, but not as severely as I thought I was planning on. I thought I would end up hating him forever.

So much for that happening; I now am practically falling head over heels for Bret, some odd reason, I don't think I'd be able to bear with letting him go now after everything that happened last night. God, what time is it? I turn to look at the clock to see it's already nine at night. Wow, time certainly does fly when you're having fun. Maybe if I happen to head to the bathroom claiming I just have to use it, he won't notice me bringing in the pills as well.
