"By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed for seven days." -- Hebrews 11:30

..:: Scene One || Hotel Room || 2:56 AM ::..

I finally made it back to me hotel room with Katy. I couldnta believe how long the taxi ride was. I was ready to go and I was hoping she was ready to go as well. I opened the door and turned on the light. She was leaning on me, almost to the point to where I was carrying her. She was really wasted. I walked her gently over to the bed and sat her down on it. She immediately fell on it and laid down. I reached into my pockets emptying them of my wallet, cigarettes, lighter and what not. I placed them on the TV stand and turned back to her. She was up at the top of the bed now, her head laid softly on the pillow.

"Oh God I think I'm going to be sick."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Nah lass. Ya can't be sick. We're suppose to have fun tonight remember?"

I took off my shirt and crawled into bed with her.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Now come here. Me got sumething I wanna show ya. Uhh, Katy?"

I tried to move her around but she was out like a light. She had passed out. Wonderful, just my luck.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Oh come on Katy. Don't leave me hangin' like this. wake up."

It was no use, she was out cold. I shook my head and sighed. It always happens to me.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Ya American women are such teases ya know that? Ya don't have what it takes to hold ya own booze."

I got off the bed and preceded to take off Katy's shoes. After they were off I flung them to the side of the bed. I covered her up and went back over to the TV stand to get my cigarettes and lighter. With them in my hand I went out onto the balcony of my hotel room.

The wind was blowing a little which created a nice breeze. I sighed before leaning my arms on the banister and looking out over the city of Phoniex. There was a lot on me mind. I hadn't talked to anyone about it, but the things danglin' on me mind were takin' a tow. I had to pull meself together if I expected to have any luck in this upcoming match. I drew in a deep breath and released it feeling the air escape my heavy lungs.

Some days are diamonds
Some days are rocks
Some doors are open
Some roads are blocked
Sundowns are golden
Then fade away
But if I never do nothing
I'll get you back some day

"Joshua was sent by God to conquer Canaan. He had faith in God and his own abilities. I'm like Joshua ya see. I have faith in my own abilities and I know I am gonna win this match. Jericho ya can't say the same thing. Ya don't really have faith in yaself or else ya would be a bigger name in the wrestlin' business. Ya always question yaself and that questionin' yaself is what is gonna get ya beat come Monday. I'm like Joshua because I'm standin' at the walls Of Jericho and I know they are gonna come tumblin' down. God gave Joshua the battle plan and in faith he acted. He marched around the city walls seven times then gave the battle cry. And the walls came crashin' down. Just like ya walls are gonna come crashin' down on Monday Chris. After forty years of wandering in the wilderness Joshua lead him and his people to victory. A victory many thought wouldn't happen but it did. Still today many question it but I don't. I'm always believe a tale about sumeone who acted with faith in their abilities and confidence and defeated the foes. Many people have counted me out in this match because I don't have the experience that ya do Chris, but I say nah, it doesn't matter. Because what I don't have in experience I make up fer in heart and soul. Ya heart and soul have been crushed and ya light has been put out. That's why ya haven't been anything to anyone for a very long time. Ya still aren't gonna be anything to anyone after I'm through with ya. Like the walls Chris, ya are gonna come crashin' down to ya doom."

Cause you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down
And all around your island
There's a barricade
It keeps out the danger
It holds in the pain

I took a cigarette from the smashed package and popped it in me mouth. I lit the tip and took a few long draws.

"Jericho was believed to be the biggest city in it's day. That represents ya ego Chris. See no one has more ego than Chris Jericho. Ya are always thinkin' ya are gonna come out on top because in the past ya have. I commend ya fella. In the past ya have been pretty impressive but ya see that is the past and I'm the future. Come Monday the future is gonna over take the past and crush it down to nothin'. Jericho was also known as a cultural center. A lot of people passed through Jericho. A lot of people have passed through you Jericho but that doesn't make any difference. See I may not be as experienced as ya but I've still got the talent. I've got more talent in my little finger than ya have got in all ya pathetic worthless body. Ya may try to get me in the Walls of Jericho but that won't help ya any because I am better equipped at takin' more pain than ya could ever realize. I'm the Joshua to your Walls Jericho and I will be successful in beating you for the one, two, three."

Sometimes you're happy
Sometimes you cry
Half of me is ocean
Half of me is sky
But you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"When ya returned ya started out sayin' months ago ya were the face of Monday Night Raw. Well so much has changed since the months ya have been gone Jericho. Ya see now I am the face of Monday Night Raw and ya are just a lost memory. Like the stones of the Walls Of Jericho lyin' on the ground forgotten ya have been forgotten. Me honestly don't know why ya are so fixated on DX when ya have bigger fish to fry and that bigger fish is me. Ya got under the skin of DX and that's fine. I don't understand why ya are so worried and worked up over the past. Well, I guess I kinda understand. The past is the only crutch ya have to lean on. If it weren't for ya past successes then ya wouldn't be anything to this sport at all. DX got the best of ya a few months ago and I am gonna get the best of ya this comin' Monday. But unlike with DX ya won't be havin' any room to redeem yaself. Just like Evan Bourne I am gonna take great pride in beatin' ya arse in less than five minutes and send ya packing back to the dressin' room like a injured animal."

And some things are over
Some things go on
And part of me you carry
Part of me is gone
But you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"When I do beat ya ya are gonna have a hard time returning to that half arsed excuse for a rock band ya have too. Ya I know all about that. See I've listened to ya music and it's lackin' a lot Chris. I notice the recent sales fer ya last Fozzy album were a bit down. Wonder why that is? Oh I know, it's because ya suck. Ya sucked at being a hockey player, ya suck at being a rock star and ya suck at being a wrestler. I know, I know, ya are gonna come up with how ya have won so many titles back in the day but Chris we've already been over this. Ya are a has been. No one and I mean no one wants to see ya anymore. I'm gonna be doing all the parasites, as ya like to call them, a favor and crush ya big mouth once and fer all."

"I realize ya don't quite like the McMahons', but ya are indebted to them because they made ya what ya are today. Nobody lad made me who I am today except meself. While ya were back here in the United States being handed title after title because ya played backstage politics and were the "go to" guy, I was in Ireland kicking everyone's arse that dared to get in my way. Ya not gonna be any different Chris. When all is said and done I'm gonna be the on with their hand raises in victory and ya are just gonna be the grim on the bottom of my shoe."

Baby you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down
They fall down

I finished my cigarette and flicked it off the balcony onto the sidewalk below. I hesitated before gonna back into me hotel room, peerin' over the city. The subject of Tab was beginnin' to flood my mind again and I knew I couldnta let it. She was gone and I had to find it in meself to move on. Katy was gonna be of no good use to me tonight so I had to find someone to talk to. Someone to share these raging feelings with. I shook my head, falling back on my own personal strength, and walked back into my hotel room.

I found Katy sitting up on the bed with her hand across her mouth.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Ah ya are awake lass. I thought ya passed out on me."

"I don't feel so well. Maybe I should go home."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Why don't ya stay lass? Ya've had a lot to drink and ya need to sleep it off."

"You're not going to bother me are you?"

I laughed.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Bother ya? How would I bother ya? I'm not gonna bother ya. I'll just let ya sleep."

"Okay. Good night Sheamus."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Good night Katy."

She pulled her small body back into the bed and covered herself up. I stood there watching her for a brief second with my arms crossed. It would be so easy to wake her up and mess with her but I hadn't the heart to do so. I was lonely, but I wasn't that lonely. I shook my head and walked over to the opposite bed. I took a seat on the edge and pulled out my flip cell phone. I flipped it open and put in Candice Michelle's number. I waited for what seemed like an eternity before she picked up.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Candice? Hey lass, it's Sheamus....No, nothing's wrong really....Well I just thought I could talk to ya for a little bit....How about ya get dressed and come over here and talk to me for a little bit....What? No I'm not tryin' to get ya in bed. I just wanted someone to talk to is all...Come on lass, I'm worried about my match and ya me manager ya should be worried too...Alright...it's room 509...great, I'll see ya in a bit then....bye."

I flipped the phone shut and laid down on the bed and stared at the ceilin'.

..:: Scene Two || Hotel Room || 3:30 AM ::..

I must have almost fallen asleep because when I came too I heard a loud pounding on my hotel room door. I sat up, wiped my face with me hand and went over to the door. I unclasped the chain lock and opened the door to find Candice standing there in her pajamas with a pillow in her arm. She shook her head and barged into the hotel room with me.

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"I'll have you know I was sleeping rather peacefully when you called me. This had better be good Sheamus."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Well ya don't beat around the bush too much do ya lass?"

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Who the hell is that?"

She motioned to the bed where Katy was lyin'.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Oh that's Katy. I brought her home from a bar but she had too much to drink and she passed out."

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"So that's why you called me. Sheamus, you're sick."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"No that's not why I called ya! I called ya so we could talk about me match. I told ya, I'm worried about it."

Candice flopped down on the bed and looked up at me.

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"I don't see why you're even giving this second thought. Sheamus, you have this match won."

I sighed and went to the bed to sit beside her.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Triple H is the special guest referee and I don't get along with Triple H. He knows that and I know that. He may try to cheat fer Jericho."

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Triple H is not going to cheat for Chris Jericho. Remember, Chris is one of the individuals who vows to take DX out. If he cheats for anyone it would be you. But you don't need anyone to cheat for you because you've got this one in the bag."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Well maybe. But I've got a lot on me plate right now. I mean this stuff with Tab and --"

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Okay I have to know the story with Tab. If I'm going to manage you then I have to know everything. Steven, you have to tell me. You can't keep it all balled up inside of yourself."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Alright fine. Tab was me girlfriend. She was me best girl. Well we started to drift apart and stopped sleepin' together and all that bullshite. One day she comes to me and says she has found someone else and she is pregnant by whoever it is. I let her go. What else was I suppose to do? I couldnta very well keep her around and make her feel guilty all the damn time."

Candice was silent for a few seconds. Finally, she cleared her throat and spoke.

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Steven, that's horrible but it's good you got it out of your system. Now I know what I'm dealing with."

I nodded my head and sighed. I grinned at Candice and placed my hand on her toned thigh.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"So ya want to have a little fun?"

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"I knew it! I knew that's why you brought me over here. You aren't worried about your damned match. You are just lonely."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Alright fine, ya got me. But for me sake ya could at least stay with me tonight. Even if nothing happens."

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Nothing is going to happen. I'll stay but you're sleeping on the floor. Unless you want to sleep with whoever that is."

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Fine, I'll sleep on the floor. Are ya gonna go to bed now?"

'candi-shop' candice michelle
"Yeah I'm tired. Good night Sheamus."

I couldnta believe my damn luck. I had been turned down not once but twice tonight. I watched as Candice got into the bed and covered herself up. I grabbed a pillow off of Katy's bed and threw it down on the floor. I laid down on the floor, my head hittin' the softness of the pillow. I rolled over on my side and closed me eyes, tryiin' to go to sleep but it was no use. No matter what I tried, no matter which position I was in, I simply couldnta fall asleep. Finally I stopped tryin'. I got up off the floor and looked at the two women in the beds. I found my shirt and pulled it over my head. I grabbed my wallet and cigarettes and headed out onto the streets of Phoniex for a long late night walk.

..:: Scene Three || Phoniex Streets || 4:05 AM ::..

It wasn't too chilly out in the night. I had expected to be a bit chilly. I walked out of my hotel room and onto the streets where I found nobody was around. I grinned to meself thinkin' this is exactly how I liked it. No one around. No one to bother me. No one to remind me of my raging thoughts. I turned to the left of my hotel and started walking down the empty street.

Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again.
So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"I've got a lot on me mind that much is true Jericho but if ya are thinkin' ya are gonna pull off an easy victory because of it then ya are badly mistaken. Tab has taken a toll on me Jericho but not enough to make me lose my focus in the ring. When ya face me ya are gonna be facin' me at one hundred and ten percent and I'm sure that's something ya plainly don't wanna be doin'. Things are different this time around. For one Triple H is our special guest referee and that may get under ya skin more than it gets under mine. Now don't get me wrong, I despise Triple H but fer one night I'm willing to put me feelings aside so I can focus on takin' ya out. Let's just face it lad, ya time to shine is over. When I step in the ring and deliver the High Cross to ya arse ya won't be gettin' up anytime soon. It's only a matter of time Jericho before ya are gonna become my victim. It makes me wonder how ya got this match when ya are just now returning. Ya haven't been back all but a week and ya are already on the main event. Now ya can say "Sheamus, ya've only had one match so I don't see what ya talking about." Ya, ya can say that but if ya look closely at my handy work ya'd understand why I'm in the main event. Ya and ya back stage politics is what got ya in the main event and everyone knows it. If ya weren't a professional wrestler, or at least tryin' to be a professional wrestler, ya would make a good politician lad."

Deliver me into my Fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago,
If I can change I hope I never know.
I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss.
I couldn't face a life without your light,
But all of that was ripped apart, when you refused to fight.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"I know ya favorite friend Cody Rhodes is gonna be there with ya fella and I also know I'm not gonna sweat it too much. Ya see it may worry me a little that ya are gonna have sumeone in ya corner who can make an impact on the match but it doesn't worry me enough. Ya see I also have a few tricks up my sleeve and I also have sumeone in my corner who will be ten times more effective than stupid Cody Rhodes. If ya haven't been payin' any attention, which ya probably haven't because ya live in a constant state of havin' ya head up ya arse, then ya don't know I have a new manager. And she will do anything to get me this win. Anything. So bring Cody down to ringside. Hell, skip and hold hands while ya come down the isle. I don't give a damn. Either way the outcome is gonna be the same. Ya can say whatever ya want about me, I will not hear it. I seriously doubt ya are gonna have much to say to sumeone who is gettin' ready to wipe the floor with ya. Ya can try all those tricks ya got in ya book but none of them will work against The Celtic Warrior."

So save your breath, I will not care.
I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love.
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend.
Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a Saint...
Ooh, my own was banished long ago,
It took the Death of Hope to let you go

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"And what of you Cody Rhodes? You're the IC champion and I guess that must feel good to ya. I guess it's about as good as ya are gonna get. Second place. I noticed ya threw ya little boyfriend to the wolves before ya decided to step in the ring with me. Cody ya a coward. Ya knew if you and I had a match I would strip that title right off of ya. But that's okay, I have no desire to take ya title lad. I have no desire to be second place in the Dubya Dubya E. The only desire I have is to put an end to ya little boyfriend and yas romance and then go fer the World Title. But ya wouldn't know anything about that would ya Cody? Ya just happy to be in the shadow of ya father who has and always will outshine ya for the rest of ya life. Now ya think ya may have an advanatage in this match because the special referee is Triple H but ya don't. Ya and Chris are in for the beatin' of ya life whether Triple H has anything to say about it or not. I seriously doubt he is gonna step in and try to save ya boy from me. He'll see what I'm doing to Chris and just stay the hell away which is a good move fer him. I didn't think he had much of a brain but I guess I was wrong. It happens every once in a while."

Suddenly my phone went off in my pocket. I reached into my pocket and pulled it out. It was a number I didn't recongize.

'the celtic warrior' sheamus
"Hello?....Who?....Tab?....What the hell are ya callin' me fer?...Just calm down....Tell me what happened...."

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul.
You never needed any help...
You sold me out to save yourself...
And I won't listen to your shame.
You ran away, you're all the same.
Angels lie to keep control...
Ooh, my love was punished long ago,
If you still care, don't ever let me know...
If you still care, don't ever let me know...

To Be Continued . . .
