"What's with the camera, Sof?" Arizona asked as her teenage daughter walked into the living room, video camera in hand.
"I need to interview you guys for school" Sofia smiled, setting up the camera.
Arizona looked at her wife who was currently snuggled close to her, a smile tugging on both sets of lips. Sofia was a bright kid, incredibly bright. The fact she was the daughter of three of not only the countries best surgeons, but the worlds meant she had incredible smarts. Unlike her parents however, Sofia had no interest in becoming a doctor. She never actually told her parents why, but they all knew that she was scared. She associated doctors with bad things, bad things such as car crashes, plane crashes, crazed gunmen. Her passion laid in film, film making and directing to be precise. Ever since she could remember she had been making little home movies, she couldn't remember herself not making one, not having a hand held video camera in her hands.
A smile that mirrored Callie's crept onto Sofia's face as she looked upon her mothers'. The way they were with eachother, even now 15 years of marriage and they still snuggled on together on the couch. Sure, they had had their ups and downs, but that only made them come out stronger, made the whole family come out stronger. Before she flipped the camera onto video, Sofia took a picture of her parents in that position and was going to use it for a later date - that later date being the video she was going to create and give them as a present for their wedding anniversary later on in the year. Sofia's whole 'I need to interview you guys for school' thing was just a ruse, she was going to use this video in their anniversary present.
"So...how did you guys meet?" Sofia asked, clicking record.
Smiles grew on Arizona and Callie's faces as that memory flashed in their mind.
"Well... We we're both in Joe's and I had never met your mother before, but at that time she was talk of the hospital" Arizona started, Callie inwardly cringing remembering why she was as her wife put it 'talk of the hospital'. "and she was upset about something or other, and I followed her into the bathroom-"
"-not in some creepy stalker way or anything!" Callie laughed, looking into the lens of her daughters camera before turning back to Arizona was smiling. Those dimples and blue eyes still gave her butterflies.
"I let her know that a lot of people liked her and that as soon as she was ready, she'd have people lining up for her" Arizona smiled.
"Then what?" Sofia asked from behind the camera, trying to hide the fact she had the biggest smile on her face humanly possible.
"And then she kissed me" Callie smiled proudly, her eyebrows raising.
"Well, you we're in such a state and weren't picking up on my hints!" Arizona laughed.
"Oh, I was picking up on them all right!"
"You're whole 'you wanna give me some names?' was really picking up my hints!'" Arizona laughed.
"Well it got you to kiss me, didn't it?!" Callie smiled, he memory of their first kiss making them both warm and fuzzy inside.
"I had been wanting to do that all night" Arizona bit her lip, remembering how she had watched Callie all night, and how happy Callie was after they had kissed. And what an amazing kiss that was.
"Then what, you guys we're inseparable?" Sofia asked.
"Well no..." Callie laughed. "Your mum avoided me for a while and I went up to her in a bar wanting to know why she had been avoiding me"
"Oh yeah, my date really enjoyed that!" Arizona laughed.
"Then, she asked me out" Callie smiled again.
"Yeah, and your mum was all goofy and dorky trying to act cool and brush me off and then nearly got squished by the elevator doors to accept my invitation" Arizona laughed, remembering how adorable Callie was.
"Kind of like she does now then?" Sofia laughed cheekily.
"Kinda" Arizona winked and laughed.
"Okay, next question... What do you love most about each other?"
Callie and Arizona's eyes widened at Sofia's question. Neither of them knew where to start... Or why Sofia's school would be interested in that.
"I suppose it's got to be that she gave me you" Arizona smiled, being the first to speak. "You couldn't ask for a better, more perfect gift off anyone... You and her smile...and her eyes, and her laugh, oh and her heart and the fact she's the most badass surgeon ever and the fact that even now, she still gives me butterflies and makes my heart skip a beat. And how no matter what, she'll always be there for me" Arizona almost got lost in thinking about everything she loved about her wife, once she started she found it hard to stop.
"What about you?" Sofia asked, directing the question towards her brunette mother.
Callie looked down at her lap, and bit her lip, she was so deep and lost in her own thoughts. There were so many things she loved about her wife, so many little thing, things that she couldn't say to their daughter - especially if this was a school project. After a few long moments, Callie looked up and into the camera.
"I know it's cliché to say everything, but I do love everything about her, but I think the thing I love the most about her, is probably her. Her heart. It's bigger than anyone's I have ever met, and it's so full of love. It makes her who she is, who I am, who you are. Meeting her changed me, for the better and watching her bring you up, you've got the same giant heart she has. You've got the best part of her. Her heart, her personality, her strength and determination. Everything good about her, she has pased onto you and anyone else who has the pleasure of spending even one second around her. She justneeds to walk into a room and it brightens up, her smile can cure anything" by now tears were already falling from Arizona's blue eyes and down her dimpled cheeks as she listened to the words coming from her wifes lips. "From the very first time we met, all she has done is be there for me - and don't get me wrong, we've had out ups and down but through everything, she was there for me. She was raised to be a good man in a storm, and she is. The best man in a storm. She's my home, my safe place, my everything" Callie wiped a tear from her cheek, and Arizona took her wifes hand in hers, kissing Callie's fingers.
"Thanks guys" Sofia smiled, turning her camera off, trying to hide the fact that she had never heard anything more beautiful or more romantic than the words that hadjust been used to describe the way her mothers' felt about one another.
The atmosphere had changed in the room, it was now the type of atmosphere that would make most kids gross out, Sofia included, but there was something special about this moment, the way her mothers were looking a eachother. How even after nearly 20 years, they still looked a each other the same way. Sofia sat inbetween her mothers, their arms instantly embracing her in a hug as they all snuggled close to each oher of the sofa.
"I love you guys" Sofia spoke.
"We love you too, Sof" Arizona smiled, squeezing her daughter tightly, kissing her temple, Callie doing the same, their fingers interlocking across their daughters stomach.
Sofia was glad that both Arizona and Callie were on the night shift so she could put the finishing touches onto her video. It was a long video, at least 20 minutes but it couldn't be any more perfect. She had added video's from their wedding, watching the one of Mark broke her heart and she had gotten the people closest to them - Cristina, Teddy, Alex, Bailey, her Grandparents and other close friends from over the years, to do pretty much the same thing they had done for heir wedding video. She had hundreds of pictures of them, ranging from ones when they were babies to ones of them passed out drunk on new years day.
A smile graced across the mini Callie's face. This was the best film she had made, she had never been more proud of something. She knew her mothers' would love it. She was their baby, but this work of art, this was hers. After everything they had been through as a family, after everything they had done for her over the years - she hadn't been the easiest of teens, this was the least she could do for them. Show them how much she loved them, how much everyone loved them. They were the type of couple that everyone wanted to be, the type of couple that everyone based relationships on. They were perfect. Made for each other. One of a kind perfection.
If people liked this I might post another chapter of Callie and Arizona actually watching the video. Let me know what you think, please review!:-)
