Best Laid Plans

Steven can be seen standing next to Bex, where he's still in his street attire of a black hoodie and blue jeans. He's looking down as Bex begins her usual intro.
-
Bex: "I'd like to welcome my guest, Steven Why!"
-
Steven raises his head and looks towards her, silently.
-
Bex: "... Steven? Are you alright"
-
Steven takes a deep breath in through his nostrils, and after a moment expels the air from them as well.
-
Steven: "I guess..."
-
Bex: "... Okay? So what are your thoughts on your opponent here ton-"
-
He gives Bex a look of annoyance, causing her to suddenly stop her sentence.
-
Steven: "It's Viktor. Have I seriously fallen so far that I can't be expected to be at least pre match a level above Viktor? Like, I'm not going to underestimate him... But would you ask the same question towards King if he was facing off against Wabbit?"
-
He looks down again, and just sighs.
-
Steven: "Maybe I'm such a letdown that that's all the faith that I deserve, huh?

Maybe I should be happy people are assuming I'll be able to beat one half of a tag team that hasn't really done too heart in the past few months.

Maybe I should be happy to just have a job.

Maybe I should just be happy."

-
Bex: "That wasn't what I was saying, I was just asking a question!"
-
Steven sighs and looks towards Bex and shakes his head.
-
Steven: "I am as well. Since the last Cardinal Carnage, I've fallen so far. Is it because of fate, the unwavering inability to change destiny?

Is it my own ineptitude at *censored* winning a match that matters, Bex?

Am I worthy of my fans' continued support?

Am I worthy of my friends' continued encouragement in the back?

How long can I keep dragging myself out of bed to look at the failure staring back through the mirror?"

-
Bex, whose expression has gone from a defensive disgusted look to a worried one, awkwardly tries to diffuse the tense situation.
-
Bex: "Steven... I'm sure you'll find your footing again soon."
-
Steven shakes his head softly.
-
Steven: "How many more times do I need to fall flat on my face first?

How many times can I get back up again?

Why should I?

-
Steven looks towards Bex, as if expecting her to have the answers.

After a few moments of the awkward silence, he continues.

-
Steven: "Tonight, I go out there and face Viktor. I plan on winning, but you know what they say about the best laid plans..."
-
Why walks off camera as Bex looks back towards it.
-
Bex: "... That was Steven, everyone."
-
With that, the camera fades to black as Bex worriedly watches Steven walk off.
