Ok, this is my first Grey's Anatomy fan fic, so if my characters are completely out of character, let me know :)
Anyways, I love reviews. One might say I'm a review whore. NOT that I write FOR the reviews, just to make that clear. I just really like knowing what people think :)
Spoiler Warning: If you haven't seen the season four finale, don't read. (Unless you want to be spoiled.) My first chapter starts out with DIRECT DIALOGUE from the finale. Just to warn you :)
Pairing: Erica Hahn/Callie Torres
Rating: T (except ONE future chapter that i will CLEARLY mark :) )
Summary: Takes place right after (actually it starts out DURING) Grey's fourth season finale. The start of a new relationship, an unexpected baby and a turn for the worst will make life interesting for Callie and Erica. (callica obviously)
DISCLAIMER: I, unfortunately, do not own Grey's Anatomy, Callie, Erica or anything else that belongs to the wonderful creators. Don't bothering suing me, it would be a waste of your time. (Unless you REALLY want my bubble gum wrapper collection…)
Side Note: Sticking (sort of) with the Grey's tradition, the title of my story is the title of a song. Also, all of my chapter titles will be lyrics from a song. If you can tell me the name and artist of the song, I'll give you virtual cookies.
Chapter One: Kiss Me Again
"So, wanna finish what we started yesterday?" I tried to ask Mark seductively, but I couldn't get her off my mind.
He turned to me, "Or you could finish what you started." He stopped. He looked so serious. He looked over to his left.
I turned and followed his gaze. She was standing there, bending over her purse looking for something. Her beautiful blonde curls were hanging in her face.
I couldn't even explain how scared I felt.
I just looked over a Mark. "I'm growing." He told me. I raised my eyebrows. "Go, get out of here."
I took a deep breath and started towards her.
I licked my lips as all kinds of thoughts ran through my head. What was I doing?! I had never felt this way before. She's Erica! She's a woman! How could I have feelings for another woman!
But I shoved all those thoughts out of my head and continued to walk towards her.
I stopped a few feet away from her. I took another deep breath, trying to slow my heart down a little. "Hey." I said, trying to sound casual. "I wanted to see if you wanted to grab a drink." My throat felt dry. I was having trouble getting the words out.
"I can't find my keys…" She sounded exasperated and didn't even look up from her purse.
"Maybe we could um…" I tucked my hair behind my ear. "I had something I wanted to talk to you about."
"I had the damn keys this morning, I put them in this bag, but I can't remember… this whole thing with Yang has got me so worked up…" She continued to ramble.
"Erica," I interrupted her.
She finally looked up. "What?" She asked me, a look of frustration came across her face, but as soon as she saw my expression that changed to a look of confusion.
My stomach began to feel as if I left it back with Mark. "I'm saying something." I told her, a little irritated because she wasn't listening.
She just stared at me, waiting for me to say something, but I couldn't find the words.
"I just… I wanted to say…" I stumbled. My gaze fell from her eyes to her lips. "I just wanted to say…"
And then it happened. I just leaned in; my hand fell to the side of her face. My lips met hers and at first I felt like I was going to throw up. I couldn't believe I had just done that. My friendship with Erica was ruined.
But then she began to kiss me back and I felt as if my world was spinning.
We pulled a part just for a second and her eyes met mine. My knees went weak and for a moment I felt as though I was going to fall over. Our lips met again and she just took my breath away.
Our kiss deepened and my hands traveled down to her waist. There was no time for talking, no time for thinking. There was just me and her, in the middle of nowhere. I held her close to me. I never wanted to let go.
Eventually she slowly pulled away.
"Callie…" She whispered.
I didn't say anything. I just looked down. I suddenly felt embarrassed and didn't even know why.
I look of sudden realization came across her face. She reached into her pocket and pulled out her keys. "Come with me." She extended her hand.
I hesitated for a moment. "Where?"
"My house? I think we need to talk…"
I nodded and took her hand.
She led me to her car and opened up the passenger's side door for me. I sat down and held my breath until she got into the car.
"What are we doing?" Erica asked me quietly. She seemed in as much shock as I was.
I shook my head. "I don't know."
We were silent for a minute or two, and then Erica started the car. I put on my seat belt and we drove home in silence.
Erica lived about thirty minutes from the hospital. She lived close to the outside of the city in a fairly small, two story house. It looked like one of those perfect little country houses from the movies. It was painted a light yellow with white trim and had a porch that wrapped around the entire thing.
Erica got out and I followed. She smiled at me and offered me her hand again. I smiled back and took it, without hesitation this time.
She led me to the door, unlocked it, and led me inside.
"Do you want something to drink?" She asked me, headed towards the kitchen.
"Do you have anything alcoholic?" I asked her, following her like a lost puppy.
She smiled and pulled out a dusty bottle of wine from the top cupboard. She grabbed a couple of wine glasses and sat down at the table.
"So," She poured some wine into the glasses. "Um... What just happened?"
"I think we kissed." I told her with a grin, taking a glass of wine and sitting down at the table with her.
She laughed a little and my heart melted again.
"Callie…" She started, looking straight into my eyes. "Was this… was this like the elevator kiss or was this…" she trailed off...
"I think it was…"
"I don't know… Do you?"
"I don't know but I think we should start finishing our sentences."
"Ok. Callie… I think… I really think I like you." She wouldn't look at me.
"Erica," I gently placed my hand on the side of her face and turned it to look at me. "I… I think I like you too."
"What does this mean?" She asked me. "I've never felt this way about a woman before… I thought I was straight! Put in your words, I like penis!"
I laughed again. "I know… I know. But I have never felt this way about anyone before…"
"I know what you mean," She said quietly. "I just… I don't know if I'm ready for this."
"Ready for what? A relationship?" I was a bit scared of what she was going to say.
"I don't know…" She put her head in her hands.
I placed my hand on her back and gently kissed the top of her head. "Don't be scared." I whispered to her.
"Callie…" She breathed. "I just…"
"Do you want me to go?" I whispered.
She shook her head. "Yes… no… no I don't."
"I know this is scary, trust me I know." I took hold of her hand and rested it onto my chest.
"Your hearts beating a million miles a minute."
I nodded. "I know."
"But I want this. I want you. I've never felt this way about anyone before. I'm not going to freak out just because you're a girl. Love is love, no matter what your sex."
"Did you say love?" Erica asked, freaking out a little bit more.
"You know what I meant." I waved it off.
"Ok I want this. I'm not going to let the fact that you're a girl stand in my way." She smiled and leaned into to kiss me.
Then, of course, my pager went off. I groaned and pulled away. I looked at it and stood up. "I have to go. I'm sorry."
Then her pager went off. "Wow, must be big. I'm not on call."
"Neither am I." I told her.
"I'll give you a ride back, ok?"
I nodded and we kissed again before heading back to the hospital.
