Jay seemed to have vanished to some unknown place, and despite a full half hour of searching, Adam still had absolutely no idea where his lover could be. He was frowning as he approached the café area of the hotel, hoping to find either Jay himself, or someone who could clue him in to Jay's whereabouts. He spotted Chris Jericho, Test, and Val Venis sitting at a table together, deciding that he might as well ask them about Jay.

 He approached the table, smiling at the three men to hide his frustration. "Hey guys."

 "Hey Adam," Chris greeted brightly, the other two nodding hello as well. "Wanna join us?"

 "Thanks, but not right now. Maybe next time." Adam ran a hand through his long blonde hair, trying not to sound as frustrated as he felt. "Have you guys seen Jay this morning? I've been looking all over for him, and I can't find him anywhere."

 "Oh." Chris bit his lip, glancing at his companions.

 Adam felt his heart do a nervous little flip. "What?" he demanded.

 "Um, well, I'm not SURE about this or anything, but...um...well never mind." Chris shook his golden head, avoiding Adam's eyes.

 "Tell me," Adam urged, his stomach clenched with worry.

 Chris looked up at his countryman, an apologetic look on his face. "I, um, I think he went upstairs."

 Adam shook his head. "He's not in our room, I checked there."

 Chris coughed. "Erm, well I don't think he was going to your room."

 Adam blanched. "You don't mean...no, he wouldn't!"

 Chris held his hands up. "Hey, I'm not saying I know anything for sure. But as far as I know, he went upstairs with someone."

 "Who?" Adam growled, his hands clenching into tight fists.

 "Lance," Chris supplied.

 Adam's face darkened. "Lance?"

 "Lance," Chris confirmed.

 "And do you happen to know where I might find *Lance*," Adam growled, his voice dark and threatening.

 "Room 418," Chris supplied.

 "Thank you," Adam spit out, spinning on his heel and stomping angrily away, his brow furrowing and anger blazing in his eyes.

 "Chris, why did you do that?" Val demanded, frowning at his friend. "You know damn well there's nothing going on between Christian and Lance!"

 Chris shrugged. "I was just passing along what I heard."

 Test snickered. "You really know how to get a guy riled up, Jericho. That's why you're my kinda guy."

 "Thank you," Chris preened, tossing his pretty blonde hair. "I do enjoy passing along a delicious piece of gossip."

 "You do realize that Adam would kill anyone who set one finger on Jay, right?" Val reminded his friends.

 "Yep," Test replied. "Why do you think I never touched him, despite him being the hottest babe in the entire company? Adam turns into a homicidal freak when his guy is threatened."

 Val sighed and shook his head. "I just hope to god that what you told Adam wasn't true, or Lance is a dead man," he mused.

Meanwhile, Adam was stomping towards room 418, boiling with rage. He paused outside the door once he reached it, taking a deep breath to steel himself for what he was about to see. If he opened that door and Lance had his hands on Jay, he was going to kill him. He was going to kill him over, and over, and over, and over again.

 Taking another deep breath, Adam pushed open the door and charged into the darkened room, flipping on the light, ready to pounce on the possible offender. The two figures on the bed both let out startled cries, Lance quickly yanking the sheets up over both his and his partner's bodies.

 "Adam? What the hell!" Lance exclaimed, scowling at the tall blonde. "Just what do you think you're doing?"

 Adam let his gaze fall on the man sharing Lance's bed, finding the wide and surprised eyes of Tommy Dreamer staring back at him. "I, erm, uh," he stuttered, running a hand through his long golden locks. "I think I must have the wrong room. Sorry." He quickly backed out, shutting the door behind him and taking a deep breath, feeling equal parts relieved and embarrassed.


 Adam's head shot up, a huge smile breaking out across his face. "Baby!" he cried, pulling Jay, who had just appeared by his side, into his arms and twirling around with him. "I'm so glad to see you!" He set Jay down, pulling the smaller blonde into a passionate kiss.

 Jay was grinning as well as they parted, raising his eyebrows at his lover. "Well that was a hell of a greeting! What did I do to deserve that?"

 "Just being here," Adam murmured, pulling Jay against his chest and hugging him tightly. "I couldn't find you, I was worried. I thought you might be...be with someone else."

 "Oh, Adam, don't be silly," Jay chuckled. "Me, with someone else? Unthinkable! You're my one and only, baby."

 "I'm so happy to hear that." Adam drew back again, his eyes flicking over Jay's body as a wicked smile took over his face. "Say, baby, why don't we slip back into our hotel room for a while?" he purred, pressing his body against his partner's.

 Jay raised a eyebrow. "Really? We haven't made love at this time of day since we were kids!"

 "All the more reason," Adam murmured, leaning in to brush his lips against Jay's neck. "Please baby?"

 "No need to beg," Jay replied with a grin, taking Adam's hand and leading him to their room.

"You really thought I was with Lance?" Jay laughed as they lay in bed, sated and happy.

 Adam shrugged sheepishly. "Well that's what I heard," he answered with a silly grin.

 Jay laughed again. "Adam, you silly duck, you know how I love long hair. I've never even fantasized about a short haired guy, I'd never sleep with one in a million years, no matter how horny I was. Sex just isn't any fun without something to hold onto."

 "I certainly know that one well enough," Adam murmured, rubbing his sore scalp. "Did you have to pull my hair so hard?"

 Jay just grinned and shrugged. "It was your fault, you got me all excited! I had to hold onto something, and you always complain when I dig my nails into your back, so I went for the hair." He pouted at his lover. "It's ok, isn't it?"

 "Sure, it's ok," Adam chuckled, leaning over to steal another kiss. "Just don't ever scare me like that again, ok?"

 "I told you where I was going," Jay replied. "I was in the gym the whole time."

 "You didn't, and you weren't," Adam claimed.

 "I did; it's not my fault if you were too sleepy to remember," Jay countered. "And you must've checked during the two minutes I was in the bathroom, because I was in the gym the entire morning besides those two minutes."

 "I'll believe you, just because I love you so much, baby," Adam murmured, pressing another kiss to his lover's lips.

 "Thank you," Jay whispered. "Next time, I'll leave you a note, ok?"

 "Ok," Adam agreed happily.
