What are you doing? Where are you going, Em?
She lets out an audible sigh as she closes her eyes and grips the handle to the gym bag set in a table near the front door.
I...can't, Spence. I just...can't.
She tries to grip the door handle but he places his hand on her and looks deep into her eyes.
Talk to me. Please.
She doesn't want to. She really doesn't. But with everything the two have been through. In and out of the ring, he deserves the truth. She looks away for a split second and places a pale hand on his chest.
You know, I love you right? And know when I say that, I don't say it lightly, right?
A simple nod. He knows. He's likely the only soul in the world to know her so completely.
That being said, I feel..in a rut. I know with everything with your family and me having to deal with James' cancer scare and trying to run his school for a while. We've been kept quite..busy. But have we really been ourselves? It feels like we have been doing things for others for so long we've lost ourselves somewhere along the way. And I'm wanting to try and get back just a little bit of that. I hope you understand.
Again, he nods.
I'm going to head back on the road for a little bit. Whether you come along is totally up to you. I got an offer from one of the places we ran around a few years ago, I am gonna take it.
That place with the rich kids in the Full House house?
Emma snorts and laughs as she thinks about that.
Nah, the one around Nashville. The one we fought that pretty boy and the red neck team?
A brief pause as he collects his thoughts.
I'm not going to step in your way. You know me better than that of you actually thought I would even try. But are you sure about this? You have been out of the game for so long, and you aren't the young brash blowhard you used to be.
Now it is her turn to nod.
Yeah. I know. But this doing nothing is starting to wear on me. At least I will be out there, doing....something. Besides, I'm pretty sure I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. And probably a whole new generation of people to remind exactly who the hell I am. It will be fun.
She opens her palms and then laughs.
If nothing else, I gotta try, right?
They laugh and then lean in and share a quick kiss before she pulls away, patting his chest once more and turns to head out the door, gym bag in hand.
