For most women out there it was nearly impossible to wrestle for the WWE, but she, along with some other women in NXT, made it. She started from scratch, now here she was. Another interesting fact about Emma was that she came all the way from Australia. Now that was quite something; that meant she would be the first ever Diva from Australia to debut in the WWE. Santino didn't have that much time to hang around with her, they had to concentrate a lot on their training and at the end they were worn out.
But sometimes, they did have a little bit of time after all to talk with each others.

She herself had the typical Australian accent, but it was not that heavy. It was lighter, but it fitted her perfectly.

When he heard he would be teamed up with her once more, he was so happy he could die. That news absolutely made his day, nothing could bring him down anymore.
He counted down the days to the day he would see her again, like a child would count down the days for Christmas. And finally, that day was here. The long lost friends were reunited at the airport where the staff of WWE would be heading off to their next destination to have their next show. From the moment they saw each other, they greeted each other with a hug, like they have known each other for years. In the airplane, they talked non-stop, they had so much to talk about But now, this was the problem.
After Emma moved to the main roster, they had more time to spend with each other. And during that time Santino developed feelings for her. During the time he was hanging around with her, he noticed how beautiful she actually was.

She was funny, nice and had a lot of common with Santino. And the way she danced Dancing was Emma's passion, but unbeknownst to her, she wasn't really that good at it. But that was alright; the way she danced was funny to Santino.
The Italian wrestler enjoyed being with her and took advantage of every moment they were able to spend with each other. And now, he wanted to go a step further. He wanted to ask Emma to go out with him on a date. Yes, a real date. You know, going out at night, going to a park, movie theater or a chic expensive restaurant.
Santino would love to do that with Emma, he wanted to make her happy and give her a night she would never forget. She was such an amazing girl, he would love to go out on a date with her. But he couldn't do it Santino was not the only guy Emma would hang around with; she would also have chit-chats with the likes of Batista, Cody Rhodes and some other successful male wrestlers.

What if Emma didn't have romantic feelings for him? What if she wanted to remain friends with him?
