Though he’d spent every day at his bedside, the absence of his confidante was greatly felt, especially in lieu of the presumed rejection from the enthralling angel Emma, which would later turn to confirmation of shared feelings, as well as the daunting revelation of her mothering a bright, special young boy. What also plagued his mind was the intrusion of the grimy skeletons he thought to be buried, which only increased the complexity of his greatest, most difficult romantic pursuit. As it would turn out, he wasn’t complete without Andrew, nor did he feel sane or secure; thus far, it was only Andrew who kept him grounded and brought normalcy to an incendiary life. Instinctively, then, he wished to pull Andrew in for the tightest of embraces—allowing for one of his more rare instances of vulnerability—but opts against breaking his toughened character, instead choosing to pet the back of his partner in crime’s head. “Oh, so just ‘cause you took a fucking bullet through the arm, you think you can finally handle these wicked knuckles, yeah?” Bobby would cheekily remark. “Suit yourself, buddy!” Stepping back to collect his gloves, he'd catch another familiar nervously making his way from across the gym, having not expected for the other guest to also accept the invitation. August Keller’s relationship with Bobby was a peculiar one, the former being even further away from what one might expect the hard-edged, troubled ex-marine to be drawn to. Still, what had become of casual conversations at a local bar was a strong affinity for the starving artist. In some odd way, the pair could relate as two passionate, lost souls, attempting to find their way. And much like a high school jock finding common ground and befriending a quiet, scrawny art kid, Bobby sought some sort of atonement for his once reprehensible acts, through helping to guide and protect his inferior amid the deep, muddy trenches of the Olympia battlefield. Hence why he thought to summon August to the notorious ‘Sweatbox’ gym, for some good ol’ roughening up. “Oh right, I forgot to give you a heads up that I invited someone else. It's that kid over there, heading our way,” Bobby alerts Andrew, directing both of their attentions toward the approaching young male. “I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen him moseying about town before, but he’s a pal of mine. I thought he might wanna play around with the boys, too, if that's cool?” MONTY

But there was something about tone—just a splash or a twinkle of a foretoken… maybe something promising. Or perhaps it was a just a splash of his own wild imagination. Because as much as he’d like to believe whatever extemporaneous sensation was shared between the two of them just a few short weeks prior, he was just as privy to the fact that an indeterminable stumbling block had forced a shallow divide between them and that only time would allow them to overcome that inexplicable hurdle—time he wasn’t sure he’d even be afforded. Nonetheless, he felt this opportunity presented itself as a means of breaking new ground and, with hope, tying up more than a few loose ends (literally and figuratively). Shaking himself free of his own little vicious cycle, he turned his attention back to what he could only assume was Emma’s entire world; the very extension of her. In Bobby’s mind, it was an entirely separate mystery that needed perspective just as well. “Whoa!” Bobby exclaims in jest. “You got some serious power going on there,'' he says while gently squeezing the toddler’s noodle arm, “I think you’re more than equipped to handle this job with me.” The immediate swell of pride he’d felt at the kid’s excitement made him consider himself and his thoughts about children of his own. He’d probably never seriously put much thought into it being a viable option for him. Even disregarding the lack of financial security and emotional immaturity, given his still very tender age, the biggest deal breaker is knowing that he doesn’t have the kind of structure in his life, at that moment, to offer a healthy, constructive, feasible environment for a growing impressionable child. Bobby describes himself as a man with many ‘trades’, seeking a means for a profit in just about any avenue and being able to adapt to any environment. There are times when some of those trades can lead him to roads that are… less than ethical. Watching his own back is like nothing to him. It’s second nature. He can move how he pleases. There isn’t a single person tying him to this life, besides his ma (and in spite of the fact that he hasn’t reached out to her in quite a bit of time, he has eyes that always assure him of her safety and well-being), or anyone that would make him second-guess any pursuit he endeavors. A child just wouldn’t fit well into that mix, and Bobby particularly care enough to test the accuracy of that theory. But he doesn't hate kids, and young little Lucas is assessing him with just enough fondness to make Bobby understand just how dangerous influence can be. “Okay, so first I’ve got to find out just what we’re up against today. What’s the damage here?” he asks, regarding Emma directly for perhaps the first time since she’d opened that door on him not fifteen minutes earlier. “Or should I really be consulting the man of the house?” he smirks with a head tilt in the direction of young Lucas.

  4. The way Bayley wasn't even in contention is making me fucking scream. Like, not even kidding, I don't know what to do with myself. 
  5. Just dropped by to observe how y'all did Asuka dutty character-wise, but allowed her a near-perfect score for technique. Her placement is a bit lower than I'd anticipated or would've liked, but it's the aforementioned that I'm really perturbed about, bai.

Standing up at full height to meet Lucas’ gaze head on, he musters up as serious a look as he could in this situation. “Actually, I’m glad you mentioned it, buddy. I heard that there was a lot of work to be done here today, and I don’t think there’s any way I could do this all on my own.” He makes a gesture to ruffle his hair a bit, but decided against it out of fear that it may come across a bit condescending. Lucas may be but a toddler, but just gauging his demeanor and personality in the short space of time was enough to prompt Bobby of his intuity and acute perception. He could see that the kid was pretty sharp for his age. “It’s a pretty big job, though. You’ve gotta promise me you’re strong enough to handle it." He’d turn to fix the toddler with a gaze that lacked any real heat, but was believably stern enough to sell his ruse. It was only when he saw the kid return a look with just as much conviction, nodding his head vigorously, and perhaps some semblance of his little chest being puffed (if Bobby’s eyes weren’t deceiving him), he knew that he’d fallen in love with the little squirt already. Connecting his pinky with the toddler’s significantly smaller one ended up holding more weight to it than just a vague gesture of affirmation. To Bobby, it was a progressive step in the best direction possible; that even though there was a mountain of grey area between both of the adults present… lots of questions unanswered. Even if thoughts of something fruitful between the two was nothing short of a pipe dream on Bobby’s end, he knew he’d attained a small victory in that moment—seemingly receiving the tiniest stamp of approval from what seemed to be Emma’s entire world, by Bobby’s observation.

  7. Oh, wait. I'm now abreast on how this ranking system works. Everything is likely as it seems, then! 
  8. Think I'm more offended that it wasn't Maria.
  9. Baby, very loosely, and that's with the volume turned all the way downE.

Having to thread through so many different elements at once, making sense of it all, he almost had to wonder if this was some kind of deliberate set-up. The very thought, in spite of its absurdity, incited a wave of emotion that washed over him as he took the time to assess the scene in front of him. One of them: pure shock, as Bobby found himself face-to-face with the figure that he had begun to taper off as a blissful memory, after enough time had elapsed with no form of contact between the two of them whatsoever—mild irritation at the aforementioned, Bobby considering that, perhaps, she’d never intended to reconnect with him at all after that one fateful night at the club. It’s the minute, but pertinent, feeling of elation that put him at odds with himself—a feeling that, perhaps, with this reconnection, they could in fact pick up where their scintillating whirlwind encounter left them that evening. Against the nagging voice at the back of his mind, he was kind of ecstatic to be able to just see Emma again; to thread his fingers once more through her soft and lush-looking blonde hair, to purposefully caress the silk exterior of her abnormally smooth skin, to feel the rigid indent in her back to where her modest ass begins to curve and take its shape, to put his mouth to her body and indulge in the succulence of the fine, rare fruit which she bore both high and low. Unwittingly, he’d begun to lose himself in his thoughts of bliss and debauchery, all before it all became outweighed by a crippling feeling of frank shock and bewilderment. Bobby can recall the night in its entirety mostly. He and Emma had spent nearly the entire night engaged in shallow, then deep, conversation, before they came to a point where there wasn’t much room for talk at all. But not once had there ever been any acknowledgement of a child at any time, if memory serves correct. His chagrin having evolved through rekindled concupiscence, then through surprise, finally falls to captivation toward the young mother and her adorable offspring. Her big secret, so to speak, only proved to rope him in further despite his frustration. This, however, only meant that he had pages upon pages of questions to be answered, on top of the one which drilled at his brain: why did she lead him on, only to not really want him? Kneeling down before the little boy to level their heights, he attempts to make pleasantries, with a smirk and a wink to express how instantly he was taken by the child’s charms. “Yo, hey little buddy,” he’d greet. “You must be the man of the house, yeah? Ya mind if I come in and take a look at those broken pipes for you and mommy? I doubt I’m as cool as the Bobby you're already friends with, but I bet you’d be pretty impressed by what I can do with a couple of these tools in my box. I can even show you how some of them work; I’ll make you my special helper. Uh, if that’s alright with mommy of course.” Still knelt down on one bent knee, with his forearm rested on the other knee, he looks up to the stunning Emma for her simple approval. A one word yes, if nothing else. MONTY @Mariah.
  11. Sir Jeigz said y'all fucked with the right one.
  12. Going with Io here. Her run on the joshi circuit was legendary and she's absolutely been one of my favorite female wrestlers for a number of years. Not to mention, she's had a better match catalog this decade than about 7 of the other 9 women combined. If I were to go for a second vote, it'd be Lana. Arguably the most consistent mic worker among the females (contending with Carmella) and one of the best in the WWE as a whole. She went toe-to-toe with the Rock at one point. That's some power, ma'am.  
  13. Yeah, this about sums it all up. I don't have much else to add.
