?? - "Someone mention Fire?"
[All eyes turn to the newcomer, and its upto Mark Sanction to make the introduction for those not in the know]
MS - "Ladies and Gentlemen, "The Dragon" Travis Levitt!!"
[Levitt strolls over from the back of the crowd, casually changing his gaze from A. J. Abroni to Alex and Kristine Krull, and then finally glancing over towards Jack and Amy. The two men share a nod and Levitt turns back towards the Krulls first]
TL "Now, look, I probably shouldn't get between anything. Especially not Beauty and the Beast over here....."
[Levitt turns to look right into Alex Krull's eyes with a cocky smirk]
TL - "You know how to dance. Right Belle?"
[Alex's face shows the slight anger as a wave of chuckles washes over the audience before Travis steps out of his face and points towards Abroni]
TL - "Now I ain't going to defend this guy. He's an idiot. A funny idiot, but an idiot none the less. But what I find curious, and what I think we'd all like an answer too, is this. For a married man, you did seem in an awful big hurry to get his ass on the line. Your wife know about your little rump fixation? Please tell me you at least have an open marriage? You can bang butt, while she stands on a corner to pay for all that gel you just can't live without."
[He pauses again, looking away and muttering under his breath into a microphone]
TL - "Or is it kneels on the corner.....bends over on the corner......I dunno."
[He shakes his head and turns back to the pair with a sigh]
TL - "But I'll tell you what, you want a No Holds Barred match, how about you get Beastie over here to open up her legs, and if any guy can make it out from between them without a fire crotch, they win!"
The Krulls are glaring at Levitt right now, but he merely smirks at them and raises the mic again]
TL - "Now, if you'll excuse me, I came up here to talk to the adults, so y'all children play nice now. Ya here. And AJ, good luck surviving a No Holds Barred match with the BDSM twins here. Cover your ass, bro. I think its in trouble."
[Levitt turns away from the Krulls to step towards Jack and Amy, his eyes flicker towards Jack but first he takes Amy's hand and raises it to his lips, kissing the back of her knuckles gently]
TL - "Amy, it is a pleasure to see you as always. Its such a refreshing sight to see a Lady and not a Whore around these parts."
[For those not getting the dig, Levitt's slight inclination backwards towards Kristine gets the message and a ripple of laughter crosses the crowd. Levitt's gaze finally switches to Jack, and we get the feeling that this is the man he wants to address. The Krulls were just a little bit of fun. Its Jack he's up here to look in the eyes. The two men stare at each other and Levitt slowly holds his hand out towards the Innovator of Anarchy]
TL - "Jack. Its been a while."
[Jack stares back at Levitt, clearly curious about his intention. He glances down at the hand but slowly extends his own hand to take Levitt's and they shake briefly. There's too much history there. Too much respect between the two men to ignore the hand without provocation. The handshake is brief though and they both release before Levitt raises the mike again]
TL - "Ya know, I heard your little speech earlier. Heard you talking about a bucket list. And I.....I found myself wondering. Was I on that list? See you and I, we go a fair ways back. PRW. XWA. Frontline...."
[There's a cheer from the crowd and Levitt turns to them nodding along, before his gaze flicks back to Sabbath]
TL - "And so, I almost jumped at the chance. Open Challenge against Jack Sabbath. But I stopped myself. Because this month, whoever you face, their a warm up. Just a little entree. And thats not what I want to be to the great Diamond jack Sabbath. No. I think Abroni over there got in first. And despite Krull wanting that ass, I think Abroni is going to get the chance to face you. And that works for me. Because as Abroni is in this ring being whipped around like a pool boy putting too much chlorine in Hutton Brown's pool, I'll be backstage watching. Waiting. Studying. So that when I get my chance to face you......and I will get my chance to face you.....I can take you down."
[Their is a definite buzz growing in the room now, Sabbath and Levitt staring at each other for the longest moments before Levitt raises his mike again]
TL - "See, you may have turned your back on it....Dan may have been taken out entirely.....but I still remember what The Frontline stood for. We protect XWA. From any threats. From /any/ threats. And here you stand. Claiming to be the best. To make your legacy as the greatest in XWA."
[Levitt shakes his head slowly]
TL - "Can't let you do it. I /won't/ let you do it. XWA deserves better then that. And so even if you and Dan are on the side. Even if everyone else has forgotten, I haven't. I'll be The Frontline again. And I /will/ stop you. By any means necessary."
