“Perfect!” Cherry instructed. “You're a natural.” Cherry turned her head to Aaron. “You think we can convince her to fight in a real match?”
Emma laughed as she got off Peaches and helped her up.
“Never say never, Emma.” Harry cocked his eyebrow at her.
Sometimes she hated how well her brother got her. He would pick this moment to remember her childhood daydream of becoming a women's champion. Harry would use this as an opportunity to share it with the world if she didn't shut him down.
“Enough of your mouth.” Her eyes drifted from her brother to the crowd of people who gathered around the ring.
Emma’s heart leapt into her throat. Rob Breyer stared right at her with a brilliant smirk on his face. Sweat drenched hair, crystal blue eyes, killer smile, and a body currently making her lady parts ache rattled her entire being.
“Good to see you again, Emma.” Rob offered his hand to help her out of the ring.
“You too, Rob.” She immediately backtracked. “I mean, Bobby.”
“Rob is fine.” She realized she held his hand a bit longer than she needed to and reluctantly pulled away. “It's been a while.”
“Twelve years.” Emma lost herself in his eyes, but the real world intruded when Aaron spoke up.
“That's right, you two know each other,” Aaron mentioned with a sideways glance at Rob.
“Emma was part of one of the most important days of my life.” Rob's smile intimated something sinful. She needed to set things straight.
“What he means is I was there the day he won the national wrestling championship against my boyfriend.”
Rob turned to Aaron and continued the story. “I met her and her boyfriend, Derek, during the tournament. Derek and I were both shocked when we advanced to the final match against each other.”
“Rob won the match after Derek put him through the ringer.” Emma laughed at the memory of the two teenagers rolling around on the mat.
“Yes, but Derek got the girl.” Rob's smile was genuine and caused a flush to creep up Emma's neck to her cheeks.
“Didn't last much longer,” Harry quipped. “Not after—”
Emma smacked Harry on the shoulder. “I don't think this is the time or place to get into my lackluster love life.”
“Oh, I don't know. I might be interested in hearing what an idiot my old pal Derek is.” Rob walked over next to Harry like they were old friends.
Emma grabbed Harry's arm, pulled it around his back and forced it upward. “Don't you dare.”
“I give! I give!” Emma let go as the crowd around them laughed. “I taught you well, young Padawan.”
