HE REALLY LIKES ME
With a water bottle in his hand, the personal interviewer of the Gamble Adoration Syndicate enters their locker room and finds Tony sitting alone on one of the benches. He takes a seat right next to him, and twists the top off.
Tony Gamble: Hey, how did it go?
Johnnie Newsman: Okay, I guess.
Tony Gamble: I hope you were careful.
Johnnie is about to take a drink, but stops short.
Johnnie Newsman: I just went to get water bottle.
Tony Gamble: Well, I don’t need you being threatened.
Johnnie shakes his head.
Johnnie Newsman: No one threatened me.
Tony Gamble: Well, let me know if you run into any problems.
Johnnie once again stops himself from enjoying the refreshing beverage in his hand.
Johnnie Newsman: Is there something I need to be worried about?
Tony shakes his head.
Tony Gamble: No, you don’t have to worry about anything.
Relieved, Johnnie once again brings the water bottle to his lips, finally allowing the filtered water to pass his lips and enter his mouth.
Tony Gamble: You work for me now, and I will make it my personal mission to destroy anyone that tries to hurt you.
A tear wells up in the corner of his eye, as Johnnie places the water bottle down on the bench and hugs Tony tightly.
Tony Gamble: What the hell are you doing?
Johnnie is beaming as he looks at Tony.
Tony Gamble: Hey, I’m going to have to call you back.
We then cut to the ring for our main event.
