**The Scene opened in the back of the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. We see a young lady standing in the parking lot with a smile on her face.**
Stacy: I can’t believe this is happening…
**She looked down at her phone, then panickedly grabbed her bags from the trunk of her car and started running towards the security check. Almost blowing past them.**
Security: Ma’am, we need your ID...MA’AM!
**She snapped out of her panic and stopped putting her bags down.**
Stacy: I’m so sorry, I’m late to meet with Maria and…
**She shuffled through all her bags looking for her wallet, then she slaps her thighs and starts tapping on her head.**
Stacy: Shit! I left my ID at the hotel…
Security: I’m sorry, Miss we can’t let you backstage without an ID.
Stacy: I’m Stacy O’Brien, I have a match with Jenn Carpenter-Lopez...I need to go mee…
“She’s fine, Carl. Let her in.”
Security: Yes Sir, next time miss please remember your ID.
**Stacy looked up to see David Shane standing there, with his hands in the pocket of his pants. She picks up her things, David walks over taking her bags from her.**
David Shane: You need to relax, Stace. Maria isn’t going to kill you if you’re late. Honestly, I don't think my wife remembered she has a training session with you. She just kicked me out of my own office, so she could finalize the expenses.
**A sigh of relief was heard, Stacy followed David through the halls. She was surprised to see him wondering the backstage let alone knowing who she was...since she was still training at the Apex Compound down in Tampa.**
Stacy: I’m just nervous, I almost forgot that this was happening tonight then I drove the hour and a half to get here from Tampa hitting traffic on I-4 cause of a 4 car pile up. Then I get here and I’ve left my ID in the hotel room...Maybe my mom was right, Maybe i should just go to Harvard and become a Lawyer.
David: It's your first match...I booked it cause Maria asked for it. She believes in you, just don't expect her to hold your hands. She saw something in you when you auditioned to step onto the main roster here. I want you to expect to lose but celebrate your victories.
Stacy: If I even get any…
**David smiled, as they came up on her locker room.**
David: speaking of which…
**David reached into his back pocket, grabbing a slip of paper from his back pocket.**
David: That's your first check, I was coming to see you to hand it to you personally...that's nearly 10x what I got on my Debut match. Remember, Expect to lose tonight but don’t accept defeat...This is a learning opportunity for everyone tonight...Things will happen for you kid, My wife has never been wrong about anything...she wasn’t wrong about me, she won’t be wrong about you, Stace. Have Fun out There Tonight.
**Just as David set down her bags, his wife entered the room.**
Maria: Office is all yours…
David: Thanks, I only own everything in this building but I get locked out of my own office. Go easy on the kid...she’s had a long day.
**David patted Stacy on the arm before leaving the scene. Stacy smiled then looked over to Maria.**
Maria: Jenn isn’t gonna go easy on you tonight…
*Stacy thinking to herself*: Shit
**Maria moved the crew documenting the first show from the room and shut the door. As the scene fades.**

(The scene opens up at Jenn’s house in LA. She lives a few houses down from her daughter, Gracie Lopez. It was a deal they made when they moved to LA. This way, she any sign of trouble Jenn will be there to help. Meanwhile, Jenn lives alone in a big house. Which she loves, because there’s nothing but peace and quiet. Jenn is seen in the kitching making a fried bologna sandwich. That is until she got a video call coming in. She presses a button on her tablet.)
Mr. Makarios: JENN!
Jenn: Hey dad! How are you?
(She calls Mr and Mrs Makarios, mom and dad even though they’re Alexis’ parents. It’s how close they are and since her real parents are no longer in her life, after they disowned each other 5 years ago, it’s how close they are. Blood isn’t always family.)
Mr Makarios: I’m good! The mrs is good too. We were thinking about you, so I figured I’d give you a call to see how things are.
Jenn: Things are going pretty good I think anyway, I found a new job, and I’m ready to get back into the ring. 6 or 7 weeks is too long, I feel like I’m rusty.
Mr. Makarios: New boyfriend too?
(He starts to chuckle.)
Mr. Makarios: I was kidding with that. But you just seem happier now, last time we talked you didn’t want to tell us about it. Like you thought we were going to be upset or something.
Jenn: I knew you guys would handle it well, but it was Alexis. You know how she gets, she even tried to get us back together until we had to sit her down down tell her that it wasn’t going to work out either way, and she listened to us, thankfully.
Mr. Makarios: We just want you happy is all, and seeing that you are happy right now, that’s all that matters to us. So, anyway, you said you got a new job?
Jenn: I did! After the last company decided to be a bitch and closed down, I signed with PWS-apex. When I signed those papers, i unno, it just felt right you know? I feel like I’m back home. Back at the company i first started out with. Back where it all began. It just feels…. Right. PWS gave me a chance when I first debut. I was a scared person, didn’t know what was doing and look at me now, years alter. I still can’t thank Star enough for giving me the chance like she did.
Mr. Makarios: Plus, you signed with the same company as Alexis, we can watch both you girls in the same spot again, we don’t have try to figure out what channel to look for you guys.
Jenn: See, that’s the plus, I can work with in the same company again with Alexis and Gracie, it just makes everything feel right. I can sit here and remember thing that i’ve been through but I’m not going to do that, it’ll just lead me to anger and I’ll end up doing what Gracie did.
Mr. Makarios: What happened?
Jenn: She got so angry that the whole neighborhood heard her.
Mr. Makarios: I don’t blame her! I tried talking to her about it the other day but she kept changing the subject. I knew she was angry, but i didn’t know she was that bitter.
Jenn: We all are, but unlike Gracie, I’m going to lash out in a different way. Everything that has happened to me for the past year, is just going to come out one way or the other, and i feel sorry for the first person to get in my way.
Mr. Makarios: By the anger that’s coming out of your voice right now, I wouldn’t get in your way either. Hey, listen, I need to go, call you in a few ok?
Jenn: Sure! Anything wrong?
Mr. Makarios: not really, I just want to check on the animals. Things have been rainy, and some of the animals don’t like it.
Jenn: Gotcha! I’ll answer when you call back.
(The both hang up on the video call. Jenn grabs the food she had been cooking, on low heat, making sure it didn’t burn. She takes a seat at the table. She starts to think before she starts to speak.)
Jenn: Orlando Florida, that’s going to be the place to be when PWS-Apex starts broadcasting, i know it’s a live special, but it’s a sign of great things to come with the company. On the show we’re going to see a new United champion crowd, and we also get to see me, and the return of some other notable wrestlers from the PWS days. Hell, my ex husband will be there too. It’s going to be a fun night all in all, and I’m excited to get there.
(Jenn takes a big bite out of the sandwich.)
Jenn: But, we have one person... Stacy O'Brien. I didn’t even know who you were until I had to find you on the website, it says here that you are part of the trainees here. But I have to ask the question, why did you ask for a match with me? See, I don’t think that was the smartest move in the world. The way i’m feeling right now and with all this anger, I could make short work out of you and I can end your career with a snap of a finger.
(Jenn lets out a sigh here, not sure what to think about this trainee wrestler that wants to wrestle her.)
Jenn: I don’t want to be a bitch here, i really don’t. But, in your mind, you’re thinking that you’re going to come into this match and steal a victory over me and look like a “hero” in front of your friends, family and Maria. It’s not going to happen that way sweetie. You’re not going to have that fairytail night under my watch.
(Jenn finishes her sandwich in 7 bites. She remains seated at the table and nods her head.)
Jenn: I don’t mean any ill will towards you, I don’t. But I have something more important than you to worry about. But by this time next week, you won’t even be here, you’ll be back in the training center learning wrist locks. Me? I’ll be on the road to the World title.
(Jenn stands up from her kitchen table, throwing the plate in the sink, and the trash away)
Jenn: I'll see you in Orlando. Hopefully you'll be ready for the stuff I'm going to do in that match. See if you can keep up. Sorrynotsorry.
(As the scene closes, shes seen walking out of the front door)
donatella: Is this still alive?
