A mother tells her story.
On TNA, Michael was coming up with ridiculous punishments for her if she failed to complete a task. He out her in a formal gown match with her hands tied behind her back. Then he had her fight Awesome Kong blindfolded. Most recently though, Lee failed to take out Chris Sabin and Cody felt Michael had taken things too far. He took off his belt, gave it to Shannon and demanded that she hit Lee with it while he held her hands above her head.
"I can't believe you'd let him take it that far," Cody growled as he went to the backstage area with Lee before the show started.
"It's fine, love. I'm fine. You don't need to be here. You're making a big deal out of nothing." Cody went into Michael's 'office' with her. "Um, Michael," she called him.
He turned from Shannon to Lee and Cody. "What is he doing here?" he asked.
Lee was about to reply when Cody stopped her. "Don't answer him. You took things too far last week. She can barely walk after that beating you had her dealt," he said, walking up to Michael. Shannon moved in front of him to keep Cody back.
"I did your 'wife' a favor. She lives for pain, just like me and Shannon and the other freaks in this business. You think she's just like every other woman. She's not. She loves to inflict and feel pain. Tonight I have something very special planned for Lee. I hope you'll stick around to see, Runnels."
That night lee took out Taylor Wilde and ODB backstage and won a Monster's Ball match against Tara. Before the main event, Michael went out to the ring alone and commended Lee and Shannon in their performances. "I always knew my patients were good but one has caught my eye specifically. So, Lee, if you would come out here alone please." Lee walked out onto the stage and stood there looking at Michael suspiciously. "Come on. I'm not going to hurt you again. I'm sorry about last week. I only want what's best for you."
"Don't believe that for a second," Mike Tenay said. "Dr. Stevie is as crazy as the patients he treats."
Lee went to the ring slowly. "Lee, I watched you fight three matches tonight , two backstage brawls and a Monster's Ball match. It made me very proud to see that each time you refrained form using weapons. I believe that you're cured and ready to be released from therapy." A smile instantly appeared on her face then vanished when he said, "on one condition. If you agree, you will do what you want in the ring and there will be no punishment for failure. If not, you will remain under my control and continue to see me for therapy."
"So, what's the condition?"
"Hold on. I'll sweeten the deal by allowing you to team with your mentor, who is returning next week, Abyss. I will release you from the therapy sessions if you agree to be my girlfriend."
Everyone was in shock. Even Mike Tenay and Tazz had nothing to say other than, "what?!"
Lee blushed and lowered her head to hide it and her smile. Michael came very close to her to whisper in her ear, "there's a special present in it for you if you agree."
"What kind of present?"
Michael chuckled, "if you want the answer, you'll need to think about it... long and hard."
Lee could not help grinning, turned on by his breath on her ear and the reference he was making to his beautiful cock. "Yes. I'll do it." He pushed her face gently towards his and pressed his tongue between her teeth so that everyone could see and the crowd loved it. Shannon walked out into the stage jumping and clapping with a huge smile. Michael and Lee turned to her, still holding each other.
"I'm so happy for you two. It's about time you hooked up... again!"
Cody forced himself to stay quiet on the subject even though it infuriated him that Lee accepted Michael's condition. He was, however, glad that they did not spend an time together outside of TNA. Then one day, Cody decided to stay an extra night at his parents house.
Lee was listening to a play list of her favorite work songs as she skipped around the house dusting everything in no particular order.
