A/N: This was supposed to be updated on Christmas as a present to all of you guys who have been reading and reviewing diligently, but I forgot so MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS! I hope everyone got what they wanted from Santa this year ;)


Neither Arizona nor Callie moved from their positions across from one another. There were long pauses and silences that felt very tangible. Each woman knew that their problems needed to be worked out, but neither of them was inclined to make the first move as to suggest where would be a more suitable place to talk. Finally after some debating in her head Callie reached for Arizona's hand.

"I love you," she said quietly, just barely audible enough for Arizona.

"Calliope, I'm so sorry."

"Let's go somewhere quieter to talk." Arizona nodded and they both exited the bar and began walking down the scenic streets of Seattle. "Arizona, why did you come back?"

"Because I love you Calliope; I cannot stand another day without you."

"You knew I didn't want to go, but I would've done it for you. I would've gone anywhere and done anything for you, for us to stay together, I would've done anything."

"I know Calliope."

"I just don't know what to feel right now."

"What do you mean?"

"I love you so much it hurts my heart, but at the same time I hate you so much for leaving me. You made me think that you were going to be gone for three years; do you know how that felt?"

"Yes I do, I experienced that feeling as well."

"I don't know how to live my life without you."

"Neither do I Calliope."

"But I don't know how to go on with you now. Where are we going?"

"I have no idea, but why do you need to know now?"

"I need an answer now."

"I don't have one for you Calliope, I'm sorry."

"Arizona, I just don't know how to forgive you."

"I see,"

"But I love you and I know that I cannot be a whole person without you being here with me."

"I'll do anything for you babe, I love you so much. Being in Africa made me see that having a life without you is the most miserable thing I can endure." They sat down on the bench they sometimes ate lunch at if it was a nice day out.

"Do you see us going somewhere Arizona?" the blonde sighed.

"I see us together forever Calliope. I see us living in a big house with a few tiny humans running around, and I also see us being amazing surgeons and have outstanding careers. I see us having it all."

"I love you Arizona." Callie moved closer to the blonde who put her arm around the orthopedic surgeon. She kissed Callie's forehead.

"I love you too, Calliope."
