Friday Night:

Dean and I were sitting alone in our hotel room. I had a neck brace around my neck as I stared at my lap.

"I'm sorry," Dean said for the hundredth time.

It hurt to talk, so I just looked over at him.

"I am so sorry, Gabs," Dean took a deep breath, "I didn't..." Dean paused as he took an angry breath.

I grabbed his hand and squeezed it. His breathing started to slow down.

"I'm OK," I whispered.

"No your not," Dean said, "I should have been there! Instead I was just standing backstage! I should have been out there sooner! I should have never even let Bray near you!"

I laid my head on his shoulder, "I'm OK. I'm a big girl," I said, my voice coming off as very scratchy and hard to understand.

Dean pulled me closer to him, "I will never let this happen again, I promise."

Monday Night Raw:

Offscreen:

I was standing in the Divas locker room as I put my stuff away. I still had a neck brace on.

"Oh Gabby, my crumpet, are you OK!" Paige walked over to me and gave me a hug.

"Good lord, Paige!" I exclaimed, pushing her away.

Paige laughed, "Sorry. Are you going to be OK?"

"Yeah, I'm fine. Thanks," I said.

"You want to go to catering?" Paige asked.

"Ummm....... sure," I said.

The two of us walked side by side down the hall.

"Hey, the Slammys are tonight!" Paige suddenly exclaimed, "That's excited."

"Jeez, I totally forgot," I said, "What are you nominated for?"

"Diva of the Year and Breakout Star of the year," Paige told me.

I took my phone out, "I'm going to see what I'm nominated for."

We made it to catering by the time I got on wwe.com. The two of us sat down next to Dolph and The Usos.

"Hello, ladies," Dolph said.

"Hey Ziggles," I said without looking up.

"What are you nominated for!" Paige exclaimed.

"Damn girl, what happened to your neck?" Jimmy Uso asked.

I looked up at him, "Did you watch Smackdown?"

"No," Jimmy said.

"Well let's just say Bray did it," I said, "Oh.....here we go."

"So we've got Diva of the Year," I smiled at Paige, "Which I'm going to win."

"No way," Paige said, "I won the Divas title on my debut."

"Ok, we'll see," I cleared my throat before I continued, "Couple of the year," Paige winked at me as I continued,, "Extreme Moment of the Year, totally going to win that," I said as Dolph snickered before I sighed, "Faction of the year and Match of the Year."

"For what match?" Paige asked.

"Team Cena vs Team Authority," I held my hand out for Dolph to high five. He accepted it, "So the odds of being at least getting one Slammy are pretty high. I'm pumped."

I put my phone away just as I felt someone touch my shoulder before kissing my cheek.

I smiled over at Dean, "Hi."
