Title: 'Til I Hear It From You
Author: Ashley

Rating: PG

Genre: Angst.
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] lita_fics album challenge. Album: Empire Records. Song: 'Til I Hear It From You by the Gin Blossoms.
Summary: She didn't want to believe them, they were jealous and jaded, but in the end she was wrong.
Warnings: Adultery.

She didn’t ask them, she didn’t want to know. She’d heard whispers that he wasn’t okay, that they weren’t okay. Rumours she figured, because they were jealous and didn’t know how to handle the thought of her being happy with anyone just because of her past. A past that was truly no one’s business.

They told her, they told her about him, about the woman they’d seen him with and she laughed in their faces.

It wasn’t until later that the doubt began to sink in, the worry and concern that what they were saying was true.

He had cheated before, she knew that much.

They were just jealous, fools.

Everything would be okay between the two of them, even though everyone else seemed jealous, jaded to the possibility of happiness in any business that involved wrestling.

“I heard a funny story,” he told her one day and then told her of what people had been saying about him, about them and laughed and yet she found herself studying him throughout every moment of the conversation to see if he was telling her the truth or if it was simply lies like she had seen before.

A month passed faster than she could keep a handle on, and it had become awkward between them as she found herself outside of their relationship looking in.

They didn’t talk about the stories, she didn’t dare mention them because some part of her wasn’t ready to let it go.

It broke down within days, as she heard some of the girls laughing and snickering behind her back.

She went to him and as she looked up at him she bit her bottom lip to stop the sudden rush of tears and nodded her head jerkingly.

“It’s not like that,” he told her, trying to draw her in.

“It is. I just didn’t want to believe it, didn’t want to believe them until I heard it from you,” she choked out and jerked her chin up in defiance, looking at him. “I guess that’s it then, good riddance,” she turned on her heel and left the room.

The emotion in this was just palpable.. I felt like I was in her shoes while I was reading.

Great work, hon.

Could it be? Ashley fic in my inbox? *glomps* I missed your work terribly.

That being said, I love the album you chose. I have such fond memories of that entire album. Anyway, really love the emotion that you portrayed in this. I could definitely relate to Lita's situation, and that's something you're always great at doing. It really, really sucks that she had to find out that way.

I know the pairing is a mystery, but I couldn't help but think of a certain person when I read it.

Amazing work, can't wait for more <3333

Wow, this was a fantastic piece of writing. Although I would never expect anything else from an Ashley fic. You always have a unique way of putting things out there which I enjoy.

Poor Lita, I feel so bad for her.

I loved this Ash <33

Ashley fic :D:D I don't even like Lita and I read this just for you.

This was so well written, I felt sorry for Lita that she had her head in the sand about it until it was all too late.

Fabulous fic though :)
