Sorry for such the long break between updates. I had to turn something in for my creative writing class and I was having problems coming up with something. Anyway, since it's been so long I'll give you a quick recap:
My name is Oliver Queen, and after 5 years on a hellish island...(just kidding!)
So Oliver took Felicity as his date to his Reunion in order to catch a bad guy, Aaron Pulin. They caught him, but then this girl, Holly, from Oliver's past started stalking them. In their attempt to throw her off, Felicity and Oliver ended up getting together for real and they also found out that Holly is working for China White, who is trying to figure out who the Arrow is.
Alright enjoy and please review!
While Felicity got dressed, Oliver cleaned the kitchen, a fact that completely surprised Felicity. She came out wearing one of her normal dresses, this one white with pink flowers on it, matching pink heels, and her hair was left down with a soft curl.
"Ready?" he asked.
"I think so," she said, putting her tablet in her purse and looking around to make sure she didn't forget anything.
They walked out the door, him waiting while she locked everything up.
As they headed to the queen mansion, Felicity tried to work it all out.
"I'm coming up blank," she told him. "Do you have a plan?"
"I'm still working on it," he told her. "Right now my only plan is not to let China White know who I am."
"Didn't Holly say she was only in town until today?"
"She did, didn't she. I wonder if she's really leaving or not."
"What I don't know is, if she thinks you are the Arrow, why is she trying to get you in bed?"
"No idea," he said. "But it won't be happening."
She smiled, thinking that's because he'll be in mine.
When they got to the mansion, they passed a very sleepy Thea coming down the stares.
"Hey Speedy," Oliver said.
"You didn't come home," she said coming down the stairs.
"That girl we told you about yesterday was parked outside Felicity's apartment, so I stayed over there last night."
"That's creepy," Thea said. "Did you call Detective Lance?"
"I'm not really his favorite person," Oliver said. "Besides, we have to go into work today to catch up on some stuff, so we'll have security there. And she's supposed to be leaving tonight."
"Oh good," she said. "I'll be in the kitchen if you need me."
"Okay," he said, grabbing Felicity's hand and leading her to his room.
"I can't believe you were so open with her," Felicity said.
"Well, she's starting to catch on that I'm hiding something. It was a pretty big blow-up. So, I'm trying to make an effort to tell her a fudged version of the truth so she thinks I'm letting her back in."
"That's good," Felicity said, sitting on his bed as he went to the closet to change. "The last thing you want is to lose your sister."
"Yes," he said. "Although I think she's getting suspicious about the basement. We might need to do something about that."
"I agree," she said. "It is way too easy for people to get down there."
He came out wearing jeans and a brown shirt, pulling a black leather jacket on.
"Ready?" he asked.
"Let's go," she said, hopping up and taking his hand.
Once at the office, Felicity and Oliver made their way to the elevator and to the top floor. Diggle was already there but Roy hadn't made it yet.
"Where's Roy?" Oliver asked.
"Not sure," Diggle said. "I'm sure he'll be here soon."
Felicity sat down at his desk and began typing away while Oliver and Dig took the seats across the desk.
"So what's the plan?" Diggle asked.
"I'm not quite sure yet," Oliver said. "Right now, we need a bit more information."
"China was last seen on the corner of Arold and Wrein," Felicity told them.
"Why did I just get stopped on the corner by some blonde chick for information about you?" Roy asked, walking in the door.
"What?" Felicity and Oliver said together, everyone's heads popping up to look at Roy.
"Some blonde girl stopped me in the lobby and tried to interview me about you," he said. "She told me I must know you if I was here on a Saturday with you."
"It's Holly," Felicity said, turning her computer screen so they could see her coming up in the elevator.
"Stand guard at the door," Oliver barked out. He pulled an extra chair around the desk to sit beside Felicity, pulling the screen back as he did. "Pull something work related up," he told her.
"Already done," she said.
The elevator ding rang out in the momentary silence and Felicity began her babbling.
"So this is the paperwork from the meeting last Thursday," she began. "Once we crunch these numbers we should be able to…"
"I'm sorry ma'am, but you can't be up here," Diggle's voice rang out.
"Oh, but I'm a friend of Ollies," she said.
"It's a Saturday. Mr. Queen doesn't have any appointments on Saturday," he said.
"Ollie," she yelled, waving at him through the glass walls.
Oliver got up and approached the entrance way.
"Holly, why are you here?" he asked.
"Well, I saw you dropped my number last night and I wanted to make sure you got it," she said. She looked around him. "I didn't expect her to be here. I figured you would have ditched her by now."
"I told you last night she's my girlfriend," he told her. "And my VP," he added after a pause.
"Right. Well, that makes more sense of why you're doing her."
"I'm sorry Holly, but you need to go. Stop sticking your nose where it doesn't belong."
"Mr. Diggle, Mr. Harper, please escort her out."
They both moved at once towards her.
"Wait, wait," she said. "I need to ask you something first."
"What?" he asked.
"Can I...Can I uh...have an interview with you?"
"For what?" he asked. "You don't seem like the reporter type."
"I'm not, but see, my friend is and I promised her I'd get the information for her."
"Three questions," he said. Felicity shot him a look. "Then you're gone."
"Thanks," she said smiling as she made her way to the seat in front of his desk.
He took his seat beside Felicity and Dig and Roy stood guard right inside the room, keeping up the security guard act.
She pulled out her phone, bringing up a recorder app before looking up at him.
"So...um….how do you spend your nights?"
"Excuse me?" he asked.
"No, no," she stuttered, "I mean, how do you spend your free time. Any hobbies? You know, like archery?"
"Uh no," he said. "Most nights I either help my sister with her club, or I'm here late working, or I'm out with Felicity."
"You must be very dedicated to your job," she said. "How did an IT girl end up as your VP?"
"I needed help with a lot of technological things when I came back from the island," Oliver said. "Felicity helped me out a lot. She helped me with most of my work actually. It got to a point that I would have to run down 18 floors multiple times a day for her help, so I just moved her up here."
"Mhmm…" she said. "And for my last question… I'd have to ask…"
"Hey Ollie," Thea said, busting into the room.
"Hey Thea," Oliver said. "Can you give us like 2 more seconds. Holly was just about to leave."
"Hey, I know you," Thea said.
"Hey Thea," Holly said, twisting in her chair. "How have you been?"
"Good," she said. She paused. "Oh, I know. You were the one looking for Ollie last night."
"I sure was," she said. "But your brother and I go way back. You were around 6 or 7 or so last time I saw you."
"Oh," she said. "You're his blast from his past."
"Nothing. I'll be in Felicity's office when you get done."
"Okay, we'll be just a second," Oliver told her. "Question three?" he asked. "We have a lot of work to do today."
"Right, um...When you were on the island, did you pick up any specific survival skills?"
"I don't talk about the island," he said, standing up. "Mr. Diggle, Mr. Harper, please show her the way…."
"Wait that's not fair. I didn't get an answer."
"You asked 3 questions. I gave you 3 answers. Now please, get out."
"Fine," she said pouting as she got up and walked out. "Thanks so much for your time." The sarcasm leaked from her lips as she walked past Dig and Roy and to the elevator.
"Hey guys," Oliver called out. "Double check that the front doors are locked please."
"Sure thing," Dig called back.
As the elevator shut, Felicity and Oliver shared a look before Thea made her way into the office, taking the seat that was just occupied by Holly.
"So is that the stalker chick you were talking about this morning?"
"Yes," Oliver said. "She can't take a hint."
"Why did you let her interview you them?"
"I'm feeling particularly nice this afternoon," he said.
"Ahh," she said, giving Felicity a knowing look.
"Really, Thea?" he asked. "Don't go there. Plus I was hoping to find out her motive."
"She's gone and the doors are locked," Diggle said, reentering. Roy approached Thea and gave her a kiss.
"What are you doing here?" she asked him.
"I asked him to come," Oliver said quickly. "I was hoping he could help me with getting Holly to leave us alone."
"Ah," she said. "Any bright ideas?" she asked looking up at him.
"I might have a few," he said. "We didn't get a chance to talk through it though when she showed up."
"I still say you should just call the police."
"Laurel was giving her information on us," Oliver said. "I don't think I trust the Lances right now."
"I think Laurel's just alone," Felicity said. "She thinks you killed her sister and she lost Tommy because of Mom. Can you really blame her?"
"You seemed to have a totally different attitude last night," Oliver said.
"Well last night was different. She kept getting too close and she called me a liar."
He laughed. "Well we need to think of something."
Diggle and Roy pulled up chairs to the desk.
"Okay," Oliver said. "Let's think."
So I'm not sure what I'm going to do with Thea, but the show has changed so much since I started this fanfiction, so I might decide to just go in my own direction. Obviously Palmer is not around and he's not ATOM. And Merlin isn't all up in Thea's life, you know, ruining it. And Laurel and Sara aren't around. So it's not really going in the show's direction, as some of you have asked. Anyway, I'm pulling a blank on where to go, so if you have suggestions, please share either in comments or you can message me. The whole Holly/China White thing came from one of those moments when you just start typing and stuff comes out and you're like wait what? You know? Anyway, I'm babbling like Felicity - so please Review!
