The scene opens to a bleak warehouse. It looks like something right out of a horror movie. The streetlamps illuminate the street as we hear some whispering. ”Come on. Walk Desdemona! You are becoming increasingly hard to control and you know what that will get you.”
We see Phoenix LeStrange leading a reluctant Desdemona Luciana on a leash. Desdemona giggles almost as if it were a game to her. ”Come on Mistress. I am just having a little fun. We are preparing for our biggest match to date.”
Phoenix pulls back on the leash, gagging Desdemona lightly. ”Now is not the time for fun. Now is the time to focus on the Brotherhood of Bastards. B.o.B. is known throughout the business and are not to be taken lightly. With us they know who they are facing but we truly could face any members. I wouldn’t put it past them to pull double duty with Crash or Nickleman. These sneaky bastards are not going to take us lightly. They may come off as comic relief but, trust me, they take it all as business in the ring and they will not stop until they win. They are relentless and thus we need to be as well.”
The two women head inside as Phoenix unleashes Desdemona. She leads Desdemona into her cage which is conveniently situated near Phoenix’s bed. Phoenix flips the light on and we see similar cages lining the hall outside the room. Phoenix shuts the door to her room as we then focus on Desdemona who has now taken her jacket off. She giggles as she looks out of the cage at Phoenix. ”Mistress, they may know we are coming but they don’t know what we are capable of. To the Bastards and everyone else really, we are simply two more pretty faces who are out to be paraded around but we aren’t like that. We are not to be taken lightly. The HaVeN the world was used to, is gone. Pandora is gone. Phoenix is stronger than ever before and the OCW isn’t ready for that. The time for giving may be gone, but we will give the Bastards a right ass kicking that they deserve.”
Phoenix, now adorned in a silk nightie, looks in at the woman she sees as her right hand. ”Desdemona, we will give them a battle, that is for sure. Hold your tongue. You are still new at this. You aren’t ready to go into a place like OCW, guns a blazing, and take out someone like Bobby Bourbon. I have followed Bobby’s career and he is nothing to scoff at. He is successful and, simply put, loves to hurt people. He won’t be ok with just winning the match. He wants his opponents to suffer. He wants YOU to suffer. He will torture you until you can’t take anymore. He wants us to give in and give up and we can’t allow him to have that. We were brought in to push for the tag titles, not to go into the match and job for the Bastards. We need to be more methodical.”
Desdemona nods as she looks a little defeated. She gathers her thoughts as she tilts her head to the side. ”Yes Mistress. I am sorry for getting out of line. I just really want us to win those tag titles. No one was ready for us in Motor City Wrestling and I feel as if no one is ready for us in OCW.”
Phoenix nods. ”I know baby girl. You want to succeed in this business and I can help you get there. You need to believe in me and heed my words. I won’t lead you astray. I am just saying there is a huge difference in the talent of OCW and MCW. OCW is filled to the brim with seasoned vets who will do anything to knock you out and hungry rookies who are looking for someone, anyone, to use as a stepping stone. You are in that category. You are young and determined but you have to take a step back and view the situation from all angles. You need to make sure you get head of the competition and Thunder Knuckles is someone else we need to be aware of. Thunder Knuckles is a bruiser of a man and will stop at nothing to end us. We need to prepare for the fight of our lives and nothing short of it.”
Desdemona's head drops as Phoenix lifts it with a solitary finger of her right hand. She smiles at Desdemona. "Do not fret dear Desdemona. You have been given the name Desdemona because when I found you, you were in an Ill fated situation. I took you, rescuing you from the outside world. I brought you to HaVeN for a new beginning and you have embraced it far more than anyone else I have brought here. Pandora was not grateful so she was cast out and HaVeN went into hiding. She was a danger to herself and others. It was no shock I found her dead, just outside the gates. She wasn't a bad person she was just…. Misguided without me, without HaVeN. She met her fate due to her own negligence. That is exactly my plan for the Brotherhood of Bastards. We will let them think they can win and, when they least expect it, we will tighten the noose around their necks."
Phoenix pulls on a leash hanging on the wall by the bed and pulls it down. Desdemona smirks evilly. "Mistress Phoenix it is so amazing that you chose me to go into the OCW with you. I am a better person mentally and physically for knowing you. You are someone to be envied and revered as this business is saved simply because you are here with a HaVeN for the damned. I was bruised and battered and you saved me from the cesspool that was my life. Before I was living to work and now I can live my life the way it was intended. You removed the rose colored glasses I looked through and opened up a whole spectrum of color."
Phoenix nods in approval. "Yes my dear. You have done well and now it is time to unleash the sheer hell we can bring to any ring we step foot in. The bastards won't be prepared for the skill and sass we bring to the ring. October wasn't very long ago but it is time for some new champions. Champions who will proudly call themselves the OCW Tag Team Champions. HaVeN is here for good and the Bastards will have to constantly look over their shoulders wondering if we are going to strike again and again. Bourbon, Knuckles, Nickleman, Crash. Any of you could be attacked by us or our army at any time. Any place. Will you even make it to Hardwired to Self Destruct? Will we allow it? Who knows? All that is known is that we are greater than anyone you have faced since becoming Champions. We are a force to be reckoned with and that scares the piss out of you. You may look cool, calm, and collected on the outside but deep down inside you know we have a great chance of taking those titles from you. Ask the Death riders in MCW about facing us in the ring. You will see we are more than just some cam girls. We are women who can kick the living fuck out of you. And we will, ya no good bastards. We will."
The girls of HaVeN were biting at the bit to step into the ring with the Bastards. They were out to prove to OCW and the world that they belonged in the OCW and that they were truly one of the best tag teams in the world. HaVeN was a little off kilter from what the wrestling world was used to but, then again, that is why they fit so well within the confines of OCW. OCW was seen as some as the Island of Misfit Wrestlers, like something right out of a serial killer's dreams and that is why HaVeN called it home. They were prepared to walk out of Hardwired to Self Destruct as the tag champs and they would stop at nothing to do it.
Phoenix opens the cage as Desdemona steps out. Phoenix looks into the camera. "The cage is open and the beast in unleashed. Are you ready Brotherhood of Bastards? I think not."
With a wink the scene fades to black.
