After spending days training and preparing for the next few matches coming up, I decided to head back to Miami, Florida on the day before Chaos 010. The thought of being in Cleveland, Ohio made my skin crawl. The thought of being around a sold-out crowd that came to see Bobbinette Carey made me sick to my stomach. I needed some sunshine and fresh air. I needed to come back to my own house and kick my feet up regardless of the drama that surrounded the entire situation.

I made my way up the walkway towards the porch while I held my phone in one hand and wheeled along my luggage with the other. I was currently having a Facetime conversation with Samantha Tolson. I have spent a majority of the last 2-3 weeks traveling around with her or staying at her places in either NYC or Vegas. And yes, even after only a few days away from each other here I was looking at her face on my screen and chatting away.

Make all the jokes you want. This is fucking adorable.

I walked up the steps of the front porch and approached the front door. I let go of the handle on my luggage and fished for my keys out of my pocket. I had wanted to one day bring Samantha here to Miami and show her my home. It would be the least that I could do considering the kindness she’s shown by letting me stay with her for… a couple of months now… has it been that long?! I guess time flies when you’re in lo…

Nope. Not using that word, not even going to think of that word.

Hit it and quit it, keep it simple, Jace.

I used my keys to unlock the front door and enter my house for the first time in a long time. Stepping inside I noticed that Bailey was seated on the couch in the living room. But she wasn’t alone. Madison was also sitting on the couch with her in the living room and beside her sitting in-between them was a man I had never seen before. Bailey sprung to her feet immediately and walked towards me.

“Jace, you’re home.” Bailey said with a nervous smile.

I raised my eyebrow at my sister until I noticed the unfamiliar man rise to his feet. He turned and looked at me for a long moment before spreading his arms out while taking a cautious step towards me.

“Glad to finally see you, son.” The man said while fighting back tears.

NO!

OH, FUCK NO!

WHY?!

WHY NOW?

WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS SHIT HAPPEN THE MOMENT I THINK CLEAR SKIES ARE AHEAD?

FUCK THAT!

FUCK THIS!

FUCK!!!

I stood there frozen. I’m not sure that I even blinked or remembered to continue to breathe during this whole situation. It took Samantha’s voice calling out to me over the awkward silence on my part of me to raise the phone into the air and glance down at her face on the screen.

“I’m going to have to call you back.” I stuttered through the words before ending the Facetime call.

I lowered the phone and returned my focus to the unknown man before me while I narrowed my eyes in anger.

FUCK. MY. LIFE.
