Sunday August 30th
Dojo Hot Springs, Unknown Location
5:31 PM - 23°C/74°F
Coming into the view is a wide and open, gently sloping cosmic-blue river. A grove of pines flanks us on one side, with a thicket of peaceful bushes on the other. Apple trees run through the centre of the garden, casting a lake of shadows onto the grass. The fiery brilliance of their leaves is a sight: scorching-oranges, burning-browns and molten-reds. As we pan across from the river, we’re streamed into a luxurious traditional brick house that spans almost the length of the area. Off to the side of the massive house is an equally large and impressive pool filled with deep blue water right up to the edges of the deck and pool chairs before the massive underwater marble steps.
The pool seems to extend on for ages until you get to an edge where the stream narrows then expands and expands into a gigantic body of water. The body of water is like the ocean and it goes as far as the eye can see yet the water is crystal blue and the most defining thing about it is the steam billowing off of the top of it. These hot springs are truly a sight. As we pan through the almost fantasy like hot springs among mounds and giant boulders - seated in the water at the end with his gargantuan arms sprawled out to either side of the rocks behind him is Mazzio. The 450 Pound mega athletic beast sits relaxed in the water until he tilts his head up to the side and opens his eyes.
Zoe McDraven: I still can’t get over how amazing this place is! It’s so beautiful out here, I really can’t believe it!
Zoe McDraven walks along the rocks to the front of the area where Mazzio sits. She slowly slips out of her robe into her small black bikini and slowly slides into the water. She lets out a relaxing sigh as she gets comfortable in the steaming water.
Zoe McDraven: How long have you been here for now?
Mazzio: Last time we saw each other before we caught up this was 2018 so I guess I’ve been in and out of this place since August 2018. I’m glad you like it.
Zoe McDraven: It’s breathtaking… I’d love to train here with you… but, how on Earth can you stand being in this water for so long? It’s nice and all but after a while it gets so hot. It’s a bit much.
Mazzio: Lets go to the pool then, it won’t be as intense there…
Zoe looks up, a little wide eyed as the massive Mazzio stands out of the water and leaps up onto the rocks. He walks over and reaches down, picking Zoe up out of the hot springs and standing her up on the ledge.
Back at the villa off the side to the luxury pool Zoe McDraven is sitting by the water on a pool chair while Mazzio is sitting off to the left to her with his legs in the water. Both of them are conversing.
Zoe McDraven: So, what about my match this week?
Mazzio: Ace’s High? You’ll win it. You’re prepared and your team is the most talented. Don’t worry, you’ll win it and you’ll get another win in your pocket.
Zoe McDraven: I’m dying to get the EHWF Championship back. I worked so hard to get it for the first time in my career but things moved so quickly. It’s been a rough few weeks but I’m finally getting back into it.
Mazzio: Don’t worry, if you want it bad enough, you’ll get it back. You’re better than I’ve ever seen you, Zoe.
Zoe McDraven: What about you? Are you going to make a comeback and dominate this entire roster like last time? It’s been a while since we’ve seen you in the ring, Dom. Everyone would go nuts.
Mazzio: I’m not sure if there’s anything there for me in competing anymore. I loved it but I’m not sure what I’d do this time around…
Zoe McDraven: I heard when you came back you were spending time with the Joyride girls. You’ve been helping Thea and Nina train?
Mazzio: Yeah, I’ve been hanging out with them for around a month or so now. They’re pretty cool, pretty talented but they're still rookies. You can rely on them in your match this week, you don’t have to worry about that.
Zoe gives a smirk.
Zoe McDraven: I know I can count on them… So you and Aubree, you’re no more I guess?
Mazzio: Yeah. Really we were only together for TV mainly. Yeah, we fucked but we weren’t as serious as it was on for the screen. She was pretty attached there by the end but I just wasn’t interested, she was clinging. Plus, she had some other guys kids as well so I didn’t want to go any further than just fuckin’. We were mainly together for TV and that’s it. It was good for both of our brands.
Zoe McDraven: Oh well, sucks for her then I guess… She was always a bit odd back when we were Challenge Champs but now I guess that’s all over and it’s a new day.
Mazzio: I guess so… Why do you ask?
Zoe McDraven: No reason, just curious as to what happened there.
Mazzio: And Joyride?
Zoe McDraven: Well… I’ve known you for years, a lot longer than Thea and Nina. I might feel some typa way if you’re gonna train them and not me?
Zoe laughs as Mazzio tilts his head and smiles.
Mazzio: Of course I’ll train you and you can stay here while Mayhem is stuck in Miami. I mean, I did bring you all the way out here didn’t I?
