A mysterious, wide smile shown from the absolutely beautiful Erica Holland as she runs through the waves towards me, both of her arms high in the air as if I was the last person on earth she knew. Erica nearly jumped right into my arms, circling her arms around my shoulders tightly and pulling me in before a word could come from either one of us. Suddenly I got the feeling of butterflies in my stomach, or maybe it was just my heart beating a little bit faster, but whatever the case was this felt like a truly special moment for me. Erica lightly touches my left hand with hers after the embrace, looking me deep in the eye as she speaks.
Erica Holland: Jaiden! You have no idea how good it is to see you, itís beenÖitís been so long. After high school my father and mother decided to move down here to Miami because he got in with a high-paying law firm agency, the only reason I agreed to go with them is because they promised to pay for my college tuition if I came to Florida with them. I canít complain about the lovely beaches and the awesome weather, but it sure was hard to just turn away from all my friends and family to head from Philadelphia to Miami.
She grasped onto my hand tightly, pulling me through the water into the deeper and more secluded section of the beach. I let myself glance around the rest of the beach for just a few seconds, and in that time I was simply amazed at how stunning Erica was compared to the other people.
Erica Holland: So that is the whole long story short, I was sort of forced to move out here out of necessity but what better place to live than around these wonderful beaches? Philly was alright and we had a lot of friends there that Iíll miss, but Miami, this is the type of place you want to settle down and have some kids at.
Jaiden Rishel: Kids? So youíre a mother now!?
Erica Holland: That I am, Jaiden. I have the most darling little fourteen month old daughter Tara, unfortunately my mom is watching her for me at the moment or I would have loved for you two to meet up. She is actually surprisingly good around strangers, as weird as it is to call you that. I think Tara gets that from her loving mother, hell Iím sure of it, because she doesnít get a damn thing from her deadbeat dad who left me less than a month after she was born. The son of a bitch.
Jaiden Rishel: Yeah, I know all too well what having a complete loser of a father feels like. Mine seems to be trying to ruin my life every day he wakes up recently. He says that he has some inner meaning behind it, that heís just trying to help me succeed in life and get that little bit of mental strength that Iíve been missing. A load of bull if you ask me, but anyway, I donít want to bore you with my personal problems. How have you been other than the new baby, then?
It was then that I noticed she was still holding onto my left hand, she looked down at our intertwined palms, wiping a stray hair from her eyes as she grinned back at me.
Erica Holland: Much, much better now that Iíve once again found you. Jaiden, do you realize how long exactly itís been since weíve seen each other? We graduated over five long years ago, and itís been even longer than that since Iíve gotten to hold you like this. I canít put the words together to describe how much Iíve missed you.
Jaiden Rishel: I have missed you too, but before this goes any further Iíve got to confess something to you. Iím a professional wrestler now Erica, working for the Global Championship Wrestling Association. So as much as I would love to stay here in Miami with you and see if we could rekindle our relationship, itís just not possible. The career leaves me traveling from city to city, state to state by the week.
She placed her head gently across my shoulder, nodding it up and down to show that she understood. The two of us continued walking through the water, now moving back towards the shore as a large group of kids have stormed the beach looking for a place to cool down.
Erica Holland: Sweetheart, I already knew that you are a wrestler now, and Iím not trying to settle you down here in Miami. My daughter and I have done well enough on our own, with my family helping me out life hasnít been too bad for us. Iím actually a sixth grade teacher down at the middle school only a couple of blocks away, as you can probably tell Iíve grown to love kids over the years, even though they can be spoiled brats sometimes.
Jaiden Rishel: Itís too bad theyíre not the only ones.
With that remark she stopped dead, turning towards me and looking me dead in the eye.
Erica Holland: And what in the hell is that supposed to mean?
Jaiden Rishel: I am not referring to you, Erica! Itís just these two guys Iím going up against this week in GCWA; a pathetic has been trying to draw every dollar his name can still pull in, and some psychopath with a old fashioned paper grocery bag over his face, thinking itís Halloween all year long. El Linchador and Ataxia, two of the biggest misfits in the entire world of wrestling and I just so happen to get stuck facing them.
Erica Holland: WellÖdonít sound so thrilled. So let me get this straight, you are going in against two guys yourself? Isnít that a little unfair?
Jaiden Rishel: No, Iím not facing both of them alone, and actually my tag team partner for the night is the companyís Intercontinental champion. Which is basically their secondary title, even though the guy thinks that heís the greatest thing to hit the world since Salt Ní Vinegar potato chips, just because he holds the undercard gold. But actually, Chris Cortez is not a bad guy overall, I certainly could have received a worse partner going into this thingÖand Iím thinking that the president of GCWA is trying to throw me a bone teaming up with him after we had a bit of a bad moment last week.
Erica Holland: What do you mean? Youíre not going to get yourself fired now, are you?
She playfully jabbed me across the side of my arm, giggling as she did so. The both of us finally made our way back out of the water and onto the sand, dripping of water from the Miami beach. We strolled over to my sprawled out chair and I grabbed the two of us each a towel, wrapping it around her small waist and pulling it in tightly around her. Erica pulled her head back to look me deep in the eye, and before I knew it my lips were placed up against hers, the two of us embracing each other in a sweet kiss. I pulled back almost instantly, a million thoughts racing through my head as the second towel in my hand dropped to the sandy ground.
Jaiden Rishel: IÖummmÖsorry for that. I know this is really what we would both like to see happen, the two of us getting back together and living happily ever after, but Iím not sure exactly how we could make that work.
Erica Holland: Baby, would you just calm down and let life take you wherever it will? I am not forcing or asking you to leave GCWA, but the school year is nearly over now and I could have all summer to travel with you. Imagine the times we could have together, the past years we could make up by seeing sights around every state. Can you see that, Jaiden, because I already can.
Jaiden Rishel: That is honestly a lot to think about, I mean we have only just gotten back into contact with each other, you have a baby daughter to tend to, why should we take things so quickly? Donít you think we should do just as you said, calm down and go wherever life takes us? You really mean a lot to me and I would hate to see us try to amend our relationship and have it fall apart within the first few weeks because we werenít ready to each otherís lifestyles.
Lifting the towel back off the ground and drying myself off, I peered up at her as she began to look dejected, and it pained me to tell her the words that needed to be told.
Jaiden Rishel: You even said it yourself that you have a great life here in Miami, you love being a school teacher and thatís what you always dreamed about doing. Even though Iíve always wanted to stay away from my fatherís professional, I probably deep down was born to be a professional wrestler. We have two totally different careers Erica, one that causes you to stay put in one city for much of the year and mine forces me to travel more often than not. Youíre probably getting yourself prepared for this yearís graduation, while I have been pumping myself up for this tag match this week. The one guy in the match El Linchador and I seem to have a bit of an unfriendly rivalry going on as of late, he likes to stick his nose in my business and itís going to bite him pretty bad in the end.
Erica Holland: I get it already, our futureís donít exactly seem to be going down the same pathway, but were either of us one to stay on the yellow brick road in the past? We have always strayed from the path set out for us Jaiden, made our own road to whatever success we felt we deserved. And what I deserve at this moment is to have you back in my arms, so no matter what I have to do to get you to see that, just tell me what Iíve gotta do..
The emotions in her eyes were electric, her cheekbones moved downward to show a strong sense of despair. She held both of her hands out and grabbed onto mine, the two of us but a foot away from each other as she stared deep into my pupils. This was the woman that I had without a doubt loved more than any other, but still I found myself having a hard time jumping right back into a relationship with her. My future was brighter than ever just the way it was, my life had always pretty much been a closed book without any new pages allowed in. But as Erica moves closer to me and wraps her arms around my back, pushing my waist closer to hers and holding me as close as she possibly could, I canít help but melt in her arms.
Jaiden Rishel: Alright Erica, you win for now, if you honestly think that this is whatís right for the both of us, Iím willing to give us one more shot. Itís definitely not going to be easy though, some nights I come home pretty damn bruised and beaten up, and now youíre the one who is going to have to put up with cleaning up the blood.
She mockingly stuck a finger in her mouth, pretending to make herself puke before stopping quickly and laughing back at me.
Erica Holland: I think itíll be just fine, Iíve had to deal with cuts and scrapes quite a bit over the last few years of teaching. The only thing that worries me a little is how well Tara will take to you, but once she warms up to you then everything will be perfect. Oh, I canít wait to let my mother and father know that I was so lucky enough to see you down here at the beach!
Jaiden Rishel: Yeah, Iím sure they will be pleased sweetie. Hey are you hungry? I wouldnít mind getting a gyro from Rayís over there if youíre up for something.
Erica Holland: Awesome, Iíll take care of it! Iíll let you get your lawn chair and bags around and make we can go sit together out there in the Pavilion inside the recreational park outside the beach?
Jaiden Rishel: Sounds good to me. If you could get me a small fry and a cherry Pepsi with the gyro, and tell them light on the onions and garlic, Iím sure youíll thank me later for that.
Once again she giggled back at me happily, kissing me on the cheek before turning around and running off through the beach. She turned back a couple of times on her way, waving and smiling brightly every single time. I had already started to gather everything up, but the thought of my upcoming match still found itís way into my mindset. This was an important contest to get myself back on the championship mountain, back into the right direction where I would be considered a contender for Biffordís World Title. As I saw Erica move further out of eyesight, once again the feeling of being unsure about my future swept over me.
Jaiden Rishel: Donít worry yourself Jaiden, everything will work out the way it was intended to. Just like this Friday on Inferno, the Accelerator made you the leader of his team going into Ultimate Survival for a good reason, the reason being that he trusted you to be the new breed of superstars to lead GCWA into the next generation. And although you came short in the endÖ
I stopped in mid-sentence as I saw a young boy eyeing me up, most likely wondering why I am having a full out conversation with myself.
Jaiden Rishel: Can I help you?
Boy: Yes sir, I noticed that you are the wrestler Jaiden Rishy! And I uhhhÖcan I have your autograph sir!?
Jaiden Rishel: Actually itís Rishel, but heck why not. Youíre a fan of my work then?
The boy just laughed back at me.
Boy: No way sir, I am El Linchadorís number one fan! Part of the Linchador Army to be exact! I hope he whoops you up and down the walls this Friday, itíll be sooo funny!
Jaiden Rishel: Why I oughttaÖ
I grab onto the paper tablet the boy had in his hands, raising it up to him as if to jokingly hit him. Instead it terribly frightens the young kid, causing him to run away scared yelling at the top of his lungs. Suddenly I feel the eyes of dozens of nearby people flickering right in my direction, talk about an awkward situation.
Jaiden Rishel: Nothing to see here, the boy must have just missed his nap or something.
Hurrying to walk away from the scene, I grab onto my chair and duffel bag and head in the direction of my now once-again girlfriend Erica. She is already crossing the road a number of yards away, a plastic bag full of goodies draped down from her left arm.
Jaiden Rishel: So before I get out of here and get my munchies on, I want to make a couple of quick, final shout outs to my opponents this week. El Linchador, this is just the beginning for you and I pal. And Ataxia? Youíre someone I wouldnít want to spend more than five minutes with, so you can bet that this will be the last time the two of us meet in the ring if I have anything to do with it. To be frank you creep me right the f**k out, and thereís only going to be one way to get around that when we come face to face in the ring Friday night. Iím going to have to put all my childhood fears of It the Clown and Freddy Krueger out of my mind, and go out there and man up just like I always do, to take what is mine and mine alone. Victory, sweet victory.
Erica walks back over to me sorting through the bag, grabbing out my sandwich and handing it to me with her darling smile still in tact. As I open up the wrap and stick the end into my mouth, I look into her eyes one more time and at that moment more than ever, Iím alive.
