How Long?

Post  Tom Midas on Sat Aug 26, 2017 8:31 pm

Steven Why is shown exiting some store as the camera zooms in rapidly, until the former #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship's face takes up the majority of the screen. The pitter-patter of the cameraman rushing to catch up to him.
-
Steven turns his head sideways, peaking over his right shoulder to look at the cameraman.
-
Steven: "Looks like Adam sent you to find me since I didn't show up tonight, huh?"
-
The camera tilts up and down, and Steven frowns, but then scratches his temple for a moment in thought, before glaring into the camera, annoyed..
-
Steven: "Fine, you can follow me and I'll talk, I guess."
-
Why begins walking once more, but he noticeably increases his pace, causing a faint voice from behind the camera to groan.
-
Steven: "So I guess the biggest question you... well, Adam, has is "Why didn't you show tonight?""
-
Steven shrugs and turns around and proceeds to walk backwards, slowing his pace to allow the cameraman to keep up, and to be able to pick up his voice.
-
Steven: "Simple answer is I wasn't booked in a match, the more nuanced answer is that I'd rather not show up and literally do nothing wrong and be punished. Legends Never Die got punished for being associated with Alyssa... I guess? And now they don't have their rematch. Knowing my luck, I'd probably have to wrestle the entire Family in a gauntlet match for my career."
-
Steven runs his hand through his hair in a slightly nervous fashion. It's almost as if he's somewhat hesitant to continue speaking, but eventually settles on doing so.
-
Steven: "Moberz did what was best for Bloodshed. You do what you feel is best for the fans. Meanwhile, you're repeating his foibles. You're... being unjust"
-
Steven and the cameraman both come to a stop at a crosswalk, and Steven takes advantage of this by getting his face even closer to the camera.
-
Steven: "Carnage in Ring... is there even a point in attempting to be just and fair anymore? Is common decency in wrestling an oxymoron?

Shane was able to revive a title and give it to one of his cronies with no punishment.

That crony was able to become a dual champion by cheap tricks, and now, they don't even have to face the ex-champions in a rematch.

If there's going to be no punishment to being a *censored*, why should any of us choose to take the high road?

...

... Why don't I just go to wherever Jimmy stays during CiR's off days, and snap his neck with my piledriver?"

-
Steven looks at the cameraman, and lets the question sit as the light on the crosswalk changes, allowing them to continue walking.
-
Steven: "My own personal set of morals is the answer there...

But you know what morals have gotten me over my past 4 years in CiR?"

-
He limply raises 1 finger.
-
Steven: "One month. That's how long I've been champion in these nearly 48 that I've been here. Look at Shane. Look at King Edge, look at Jimmy James. My 2%? For some of them, that's 50%, others 25%, all eclipsing me."
-
Steven sighs again, and glares off into the open sky.
-
Steven: "How long... how long can a man handle getting to the brass ring, but find out that just for you, it's been greased up and you just can't get a good grip?

How long will a man follow his morals over results?

How long will a man bend before breaking?"

-
The duo enter an upper-end apartment building, and begin walking up stairs. The cameraman is now huffing and puffing, struggling to carry the heavy camera up behind Steven.
-
Steven: "How long will I go being complacent coming up empty handed?"
-
Steven pulls a key out of his pocket, and unlocks a door. He walks through the frame, and turns around.
-
Steven: "Adam... I'll show up when either:

You book me to have a match

or

Want to speak with me about important and pertinent matters.

Until then, interview's over."

-
Steven somewhat forcefully shuts the door centimeters from the front of the camera, and seconds later, the feed cuts out to dead silence.
