Friend Or Foe: Chapter 3                               Why didn't anyone tell me?!

We were all still pretty shake from the pyrotechnics accident. Mainly Jeff and I. Everyone else was over it, but they had to take him out on a stretcher! I'm deathly afraid of that ever happening to me or anyone I love. So seeing Jeff, one of my best and closest friends, taken away on a stretcher was horrible for me. I have seen so many people die on stretchers. They are just plain.... I can't even think of a word to describe it.

But now, it was the Friday before the Royal Rumble. Matt had a match, and that was it. I didn't even have a match. It was the Bella Twins against Natalya and the bitch. I was backstage in my street clothes. I wasn't expecting anything to happen, Jeff wasn't even here. So, what could happen? Well, here's that answer. Matt was ambushed by Mark Henry and his opponent Sunday, Jack Swagger. The guys and I couldn't even do anything! I was held up by a cussing war with Michelle while Shane and Jimmy were being held back by Ezekiel Jackson and Brian Kendrick. R-Truth was held back by Shelton.

“Shit,” I muttered under my breath then I pushed Michelle away roughly. But, too late, Matt had already lost. “Dammit!” I hissed. The other guys that were holding my buddies off went away and Shane came over to me. “You alright Vio?” he asked worriedly. “Why does it always happen that we can never help our friends in time?” I groaned in question to his question. “I don't know Violet, I don't know,” he said softly pulling me into a much obliged hug.

Matt came backstage while Shane and I were separating. I ran over to him, “oh, Matty are you okay?” I asked worriedly. “Fine, I'll be just fine,” he replied turning and walking away coldly. “What?” I said softly in confusion. “He's probably just upset about losing,” Shane pointed out resting a warm hand on my shoulder. “Right, upset about losing,” I echoed Shane. That is so not why he's acting like this. There's something more. Something I can't figure out! Dammit!!!!

I had that horrible feeling the rest of the weekend and up to the Royal Rumble. Yeah, I didn't have a match neither did Jimmy or Shane. We were kinda all bummed about it. The only way I would have had a match was if it was for the Women's Championship, which is on RAW. Sucky! Yeah, I know. So, now, I was sitting backstage with Jimmy and Shane watching Jeff pace the room.

Matt's match had just started and Jeff had been worrying ever since. He wanted his brother to win the title back so badly. He wanted to reunite their tag team again while they were both champions. I wanted them to as well but, who am I to have an opinion right? Heh. Anyways, Jeff was pacing and our heads were going back and forth, back and forth, just watching him. Finally I couldn't stand it anymore. I jumped to my feet and determinedly walked over to Jeff and stood right in his path so he had to stop pacing. He did and looked up.

“Vio, please move. I just need to keep myself busy,” he sighed. “Uh, no,” I replied raising and eyebrow. Jeff sighed and looked away. “Do you want me to call Beth, so you can talk to her?” I asked and guess what, I'd been left out of the loop. “Vio, Beth and I broke up after the hit and run accident. She said dating me was getting too dangerous,” he replied sadly. Shit! Now I made him feel bad. Oh well, right now, I'm pissed. “Wait, why the hell didn't you guys tell me they broke up?” I asked spinning on my heel to face Shane and Jimmy.

Jimmy looked completely innocent, as usual, but he was. So I set my glare between Jeff and Shane. “Why does no one tell me anything!?!” I was PO'd. “What, is it because I'm the only girl in the group anymore!?! I don't get it! Why am I always the last to know!?!” and with that I stormed out of the locker room and down the hall. I'd go wait for Matt to finish his match.

I was fast-walking down the hall when I heard someone call my name. I didn't turn. I didn't look to see who it was. I didn't need to. I knew the voice. “Violet,” he panted as he finally caught up to me and spun me around to face him. I crossed my arms over my chest and looked away from him. “Violet, look at me, please,” he begged when he finally caught his breath. I met Shane's eyes slowly. “Why didn't anyone tell me. Now I feel like shit for bringing it up,” I snapped, quickly swiping away my frustrated tears.

“Please don't cry Vio,” he whispered, wiping away the few tears I had missed. “Answer the question Shane,” I said in a demanding tone. “Okay, we all knew how you never really liked Beth and that you thought she was a gold digger and all, well, you were right. And Matt and Jeff agreed not to tell you 'cause they didn't want to hear you say 'I told you so' for as long as they live,” Shane replied. “That is a crappy reason not to tell your best friend,” I said angrily while looking away. Gregory cupped my chin and turned my face towards his.

I shook my head and walked away. That was a bullshit answer! But it was probably partly true. I want the full answer, not part of it. But I'm obviously not gonna get it from Shane. I tried to walk away quickly but Shane followed just as fast. “Vio, calm down,” he said worriedly. “We're sorry we didn't tell you sooner, okay,” He said forcing me to look him in the eyes. “Fine, okay, I forgive you,” I said finally. Just then, the bell rang, followed by Jack Swagger's theme music. “Shit,” Shane and I muttered simultaneously.

Jeff's POV

Dammit! My brother had lost, that is so not good. Jimmy and I were walking down the hall quickly. I saw Gregory talking to Violet. We ran up to them. “C'mon guys, we gotta go get my brother,” I sighed. They both nodded and then we headed toward the gorilla position. Matt was backstage and I was at his side immediately. “Matt are you okay?” Violet asked worriedly. Matt just nodded, trying to cover up the tears.

But Vio saw them. Vio hates it when people cry. I've only seen her cry twice in all the time I've known her. The first time, when her father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer; the second time was when her family was informed that her older brother had been killed overseas . Those were two horrible years for her. She lost the most important man in her life.

I was jolted back into the present when my brother leaned on my shoulder. “Matt let's get you back to the locker room,” I suggested. But Matt shook his head, and suddenly he seemed kinda distant. “I'm gonna go for a walk, I'll see you later for your match,” he said and then was gone. Everyone looked confused. R-Truth joined us right after Matt had left, looking just as confused. “What the hell was that all about?” Violet asked scratching her head. “Is there something else I don't know?” she questioned looking fumed already. “No, no!” Shane assured her, placing a hand on the small of her back and leading her away.

Her only tattoo was showing. It was on her hip. The American flag with the words 'Damien' and 'from Cameron' written across the flag. It was dedicated to her brother, Damien. Now she hugged Shane, “thanks for letting me know, you're all so extremely honest with me,” she said sarcastically.

She took a deep breath then her gaze traveled to the walking figure of my older brother. “I'll go talk to him,” she said, “I'm probably the only one he'll talk to.” Everyone, except Shane, nodded uneasily but she didn't notice. I didn't think her going to talk to my brother was a good idea, but she wouldn't listen to me, probably.
