We ran out as planned, the Nexus, not allowed to interfere lest we cause our leader to lose the match. I stood there, even as I played my part, watching Wade. The way he moved, straight forward, and yet still with an air of gracefulness. His muscles, not overdone the way most of the superstars' were, like mine were, but just right.
He was beautiful, maybe not in the conventional way, what with his crooked nose, but still beautiful. I knew it was wrong, I was a married man, but I couldn't help lusting over him. But I knew he would never look at me the way I looked at him, especially now that Cena was scheduled to join us.
Wade had been obsessed with him since before we'd even started NXT, all he ever talked about was how much he wanted to meet John Cena. He talked about him like he was God, meanwhile I was there, pining after Wade, acting like a puppy who'd been kicked.
