Callie Torres is an A List movie star. Her movies are known world wide. She is brilliant on screen and everyone knows it. Producers, directors and screen writers line up in the hopes of snagging Callie for their projects. It was a rush for Callie to know so many people wanted her, but the one thing she so desperately needed right now and forever, was that special someone to want her for her, and not just her acting abilities. She's never hid her sexuality. Everyone knew that Callie Torres loved the ladies. She was also one of the few well known A List superstars that seemed to shy away from the spotlight in her personal life. Of course, one can never be completely private with paparazzi always following her around, but she tried to maintain a simple life outside of her work. She lived in a modest 2 story home in the Hollywood Hills. 3 bedroom, 2 bath, large pool and hot tub in the backyard. Not one to just flaunt her wealth, she was completely satisfied with her little oasis. She had a few serious relationships with some fellow actresses but in the end, it just never seemed to work out. If she were being honest with herself, she has never known what it feels like to be inlove with someone. The kind of love that took over not just her heart, but her soul. At this point in her life, she had accomplished a lot in her professional life. Now it was time for her to accomplish something in her personal life.
Arizona Robbins is a world renowned Pediatric Surgeon. She has won awards for her breakthroughs in the field of medicine. Everyone was pulling at her scrubs to come work for them. She was Head of Pediatrics in Seattle for going on 3 years. She loved it. She loved her patients, she loved her co workers and she loved Seattle. The one thing she didn't love was her ex girlfriend that seemed set on getting her back. She would show up at the hospital unannounced, would show up at her apartment, send countless text messages and leave voicemails all throughout the day. It was seriously getting creepy. Almost to the point of stalkerish. She didn't know what to do with the situation. She could always get a restraining order, but she started to think that maybe even that wouldn't help. What she seriously needed was a vacation. It had been a few years since she's taken the time off just to relax. Her career had sky rocketed and that left little time to herself. She didn't mind it at first, but now she was wearing down, so she decided to take some time for herself. Just to get away from the hussle of surgeon life.
I've been sitting here at my kitchen table, looking over places online where I should vacation. It's been awhile since I've actually taken time out for myself so there are a few places I'd like to visit. I need sun. I need ocean. I need hot weather. I need girls in small bikinis. I need a freaking sangria in my hand! Thinking for a second, I think of the perfect place to visit for 2 weeks. I immediately grab my phone to call one of my best friends.
"Addison! How is your schedule for the next 2 weeks?"
"Umm, it's light. I'm taking some time off in a few days. Not doing anything special.. Just need some time to relax. Why? Oh and hi by the way."
"Hi! I was just wondering because i'm actually taking some time off as well and was wanting to come visit! LA is calling my name!"
"Really? That's so exciting! You can stay here at my house! Oh this is so awesome! I've missed you!"
"I've missed you too! Ok, so I can buy my ticket online and hopefully be on my way tomorrow! I will text you the details and let you know when I'll be there. I can catch a cab from the airport. Just send me your address."
"Nonsense! I can pick you up from the airport. My day tomorrow is only a few consults and that's it. I wasn't joking when I said my schedule was light. Just text me the info and I will be there! I can't wait to see your face!"
"I can't wait either! See you tomorrow!"
With plans being made, I hurry to purchase my plane ticket.. First class. I may as well treat myself to the full extent since I never do. I have a 9am flight and I should arrive at LAX around 2pm. I text Addison the info, she confirms that she will indeed pick me up from the airport at that time, and now I have to run around my apartment to pack everything I'll need. This is going to be amazing. Spend time with my best friend, and relax on a beach. What more could I ask for?
The next morning, I am up bright and early to make sure I make it to the airport on time. My other best friend, Teddy Altman, graciously offered to take me to the airport, so I didn't have to drive my car and leave it there for 2 weeks. We arrive reasonably early. She sticks around with me and we grab some coffee at the Starbucks. We chat aimlessly until I hear my flight being called. With our goodbyes and promises to text and call throughout my vacation, I excitedly board the plane and begin my overdue vacation.
The flight didn't seem to take that long. Maybe it was because I was being lavished in First Class that I hardly noticed the time go by. Sooner than I thought, the pilot is coming over the intercom telling us to put on our seatbelts and remain seated during landing. Once off the plane, I make my way over to baggage claim and retrieve my luggage. From behind me, I hear the excited shreek of my best friend.
"ARIZONA ROBBINS! Get over here!"
"Addison Montgomery! YOU get over HERE!"
She sprints towards my direction and lunges at me, capturing me in a big hug, with strength I had no idea she possessed. I missed this woman so much. Me and her have been through a lot together. We met in Med School and have been best friends ever since. Even though we live in different states, we still talk almost everyday, whether it be calls, texts or emails.
"It is SO good to see you Arizona. I was just telling a coworker how much I missed you. I was even contemplating coming to Seattle with my time off. Now that you're here, we can just stay in sunny LA and pamper ourselves for 2 weeks!"
"I am ALL for that!"
We grab my luggage and my our way to her car. She asks if I'm hungry and I reply with a yes. She says there is this little cafe close to her house that she loves and knows I would love too, so we make our way to it. Once there, we grab a table and order our drinks and food. While waiting, Addison seems a little distracted from the conversation and she seems to be eyeing someone behind me. I glance over my shoulder to see who she's looking at and immediately, my breath is taken away. Sitting right across from us is Callie Torres. Like, A List movie star, sex on a stick, Callie Torres.
"Holy shit Addison! That's Callie Torres!" I whisper. Trying not to be too loud.
"I know! She's amazing. I just watched one of her movies last night and cried like a damn baby. She's so good! Do you think she'd mind if I went over there for an autograph?"
"I don't know. From what I've seen on TV and interviews, she doesn't seem like a stuck up bitch that would turn away fans. You should totally go over there!"
With that, Addison gets up from the table and makes her way over to the raven haired Goddess. I'm actually nervous and i'm just sitting at a table, watching. I see Addison approach Callie and ask for an autograph. She points in my direction and I see Callie look over my way. We lock eyes and I can feel my heart damn near beat out of my chest. My palms start to sweat. My breathing starts to go uneven. Damnit, this woman has me under some sort of spell.
My day starts out like any other day. Get out of bed, take a shower, make breakfast, go for a run, a few laps around the pool, another shower, and off to my meetings I have lined up for the morning. It goes by slow but finally, I am able to leave. Deciding I didn't want to go home right away, I drive through the streets of Los Angeles. Just taking in the surroundings, the people, the weather. Noticing it was past lunchtime and I hadn't eaten since this morning, I stop at this cafe I love so much. Not only do they serve a mean BLT, but I don't often get hassled here by the staff. I love my fans, I really do. If someone asks me for an autograph or picture, I am all too happy to oblige, but sometimes, it's good not to have to deal with being mobbed while trying to enjoy a meal. They know me pretty well, and do everything they can to make sure I am comfortable and don't get hassled too much, in which I am truly grateful.
My favorite waiter comes over to me and takes my usual order. I always order the same thing and he always waits on me. I don't know if it's by chance or he requests to wait my table but he's always taken good care of me. With my lunch almost done, I am full. I push the plate away and just sit in silence, lost in my thoughts. I'm only brought out of them when a red haired, tall, beautiful woman approaches my table.
"Excuse me, I don't mean to bother you, but I would be so honored if I could maybe have your autograph?" she asks with a little embarrassment in her voice.
"Of course. Do you have something I can sign?"
"Oh umm, yeah, over at my table."
She points over to her table and I am immediately met with the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. I am completely fixated on the blonde haired blue eyed beauty residing at the table. She seems nervous and I feel a little flutter in my heart and butterflies the size of Texas in my stomach.
"Well then, if you don't mind some more company, let's go over to your table." I tell her. The look on her face is priceless. A mix of shock and excitement.
"O..ok! Sure, let's go!"
We make our way over to her table and I pull out the extra seat next to the blonde.
"Hi, I'm Callie Torres. You are?" I ask the blonde, while extending my hand.
"Um.. Arizona. Arizona Robbins. It's really nice to meet you. I just love your movies. You are so great. I am a huge fan!"
"Well, thank you. I appreciate that."
I look over to the red head and feel like a total douche. Here I am, fawning over this blonde when the red head was the one asking me for the autograph.
"I'm sorry, I didn't get your name."
"Oh it's Addison. Addison Montgomery."
"Addison Montgomery? You wouldn't happen to know Mark Sloan would you?" I ask her. I knew her name sounded familiar.
"Uhh, yeah. I know Mark. Wait, how do you know Mark?"
"Me and him go way back. I've known him since I was like 15. He's mentioned you once or twice. All good, I may add."
"Wow, what a small world! I should kill him for not mentioning he knew you. You're like my favorite actress. I actually just watched one of your movies last night. I was just telling Arizona that before I came to your table."
I look over to Arizona and find her studying my face. My body automatically responds to her stare. I can feel my face begin to redden and my palms begin to sweat. Those baby blues are dangerous.
"So you two would like an autograph?" I ask.
"Oh yes! Please? If you don't mind." Addison replies
"Of course not. Would you like a picture as well?" Anything for the fans. Especially these 2 beautiful ladies.
"Oh wow, that would be amazing. Thank you so much!"
Addison hands me 2 pieces of paper from her purse and a pen.
To the beautiful Addison Montgomery,
Keep saving babies. The world is better with you in it.
XO Callie Torres
I hand her back the paper and I can see her start to blush profusely.
"How did you know I save babies?" she asks quizzically.
"I told you, Mark has mentioned you a couple of times. He mentioned you were a Neonatal surgeon. I think it's amazing what you do."
"Wow. Thank you so much."
Next, I take the paper and write an autograph for Arizona.
To the breathtaking Arizona Robbins,
Those blue eyes should be illegal. They are dangerous for the heart of anyone that stares into them.
XO Callie Torres
I hand her the paper and I also see her start to blush. I tend to have that effect on people. I don't mean to, it just happens.
Addison hands Arizona her cell phone and asks her to take a picture me and her. Once the picture is taken, Addison seems like a kid in the candy store. I see her save the picture and immediately change it to her wallpaper. It's actually pretty flattering.
"Arizona? Earth to Arizona!"
"OH! Sorry, just kinda zoned out for a second. What were you saying?"
"I asked if you wanted a picture as well. I'm more than happy to take one with you." I give her a bright smile and she returns it. Holy shit! Dimples! I'm screwed.
She hands Addison her cell phone and we get up from the table. She seems nervous where she can put her hands, so I take the lead. I wrap my arm around her waist and slightly pull her into my side. She tenses for a second but then relaxes. She puts her hand on my lower back and I feel this jolt of electricity throughout my body when she touches me. All too soon, the picture is taken and Addison hands Arizona her phone. Just when I am about to sit back down to prolong the conversation, I hear my phone ring. Knowing the ringtone, I grumble a little.
"Excuse me ladies, I have to take this."
With a nod from both Addison and Arizona, I excuse myself to the ladies room to take the call. Knowing damn well that it meant I would have to leave. 5 minutes later, I make my way back to their table.
"Sorry for that. It was my manager. I don't want to cut this short, but I have to go. It was really nice meeting you ladies."
I can see the disappointment in both of their faces but more in Arizona's. In that moment, I'm pretty sure my heart stopped beating.
"Listen, if you two aren't busy tomorrow, maybe you'd like to come to my house. Nothing special.. we can hang out by the pool, have lunch. Make it an all day thing. You can even stay in my guest rooms if you'd like. I don't usually invite strangers to my house, but from what Mark tells me about you Addison, you are pretty great.. I'd like to get to know you two better, if that's ok? Oh and lunch is on me by the way. A treat for 2 of my biggest fans. "
I can see the shock in both of their faces and it makes me chuckle a little. I guess they aren't used to someone like me just randomly inviting them to their house for the day and paying for their meal.
"Are you serious? That's like the most perfect plan ever!" Arizona blurts out. I don't think she meant to because I can see her start to blush.
"What do you say Addison?" I ask the still shocked Doctor.
"Oh... yeah, I'm in! That sounds great!"
"Great! Here is my cell phone number. Just text me later today and I will give you my address. It's actually not too far from here so you shouldn't have a problem finding it. See you tomorrow!"
With that, I leave the cafe. There is just something about Arizona that I can't get off my mind. She's breathtakingly stunning. Those eyes, those dimples, the flowing blonde hair.. just makes my heart speed up and butterflies twirl in my stomach. Yeah, I need to spend more time with her.
"Did that really just happen? I mean, I'm not dreaming? I'm not gonna wake up in a pile of my own drool because the most gorgeous, hottest and stunning woman just invited us to her house tomorrow?" I ask Addison. We are both still reeling from what just transpired.
"I am SO killing Mark for not even mentioning he knew Callie Torres! I will take my scalpel and make Mark Sushi! And yes, that really did just happen! How is your vacation so far?" Addison asks with a huge grin on her face.
"Fucking amazing." Is all I can say. I'm still in utter shock about what just happened. I have always been a fan of Callie's movies. She portrays her characters so well. She makes you cry, laugh, scream, yell at the tv, and then makes your heart swell with her performance.
"What did your autograph say?" Addison asks me.
I hand her the piece of paper. As she's reading it, I see her face light up. A knowing smirk that I know all too well.
"She totally hit on you! Damnit Arizona!"
"What? She did not hit on me! It's just an autograph! She was being nice."
"I'm nice.. and I have never told you something like that. She was totally hitting on you. You lucky bitch! I'm not even gay and I'm jealous!"
I can't help but laugh at her. Was Callie really hitting on me? I was so lost in this woman that I didn't even notice. It's like, all brain function is lost when she was talking.
"Come on, let's get out of here. Go back to my place, drink some wine, maybe watch a movie or 2 with Callie in it.. you know, just to prepare for tomorrow."
"How is watching movies with Callie in them going to prepare us for tomorrow?" I ask.
"Well, it won't. I just really want to watch them." She replies with a twinkle in her eye.
"Umm Addison.. Do you have a girl crush on Callie?" My voice laced with humor.
"No! No way! She's gorgeous and one hell of an actress, but I'm a fan of penis.. I mean, a HUGE fan of penis!" She rambles on. I can't help but bust out laughing.
"Alright, let's go back to your place and "prepare" for tomorrow!"
We grab our things and head to Addison's car. She doesn't live far from the cafe, so it doesn't take long for us to arrive at her beautiful beachside home. It's breathtaking. I could totally get used to this for 2 weeks. We're sitting on the deck that leads right into the beach, drinking some wine and catching up. She catches me looking at my phone every few seconds, knowing damn well that I'm looking at my wallpaper picture. Just as Addison did, I made my wallpaper that picture of me and Callie. She's so gorgeous, how could I not? Especially when that picture has me in it with her.
"So, Callie was really nice huh?" Addison asks, snapping me out of my picture oogling.
"Yeah. I was really surprised. I mean, like i said, she didn't seem like the type to ignore fans or anything, but she really went out of her way to be nice."
"I think she has a crush on you."
"You're crazy! Why would someone like Callie freaking Torres have a crush on me when she could literally have anyone in the world?" I snap back.
"Because of the total flirting in the autograph, and the forementioned niceness. She didn't have to come to our table and strike up a conversation. She didn't have to invite us to her house, which she says she never does. She didn't have to take pictures with us. She didn't have to pay for our lunch, which by the way, was a shock as well. Oh and she was making eyes at you the whole time. If I didn't babble on like a damn fool, I'm sure she wouldn't have even noticed I was there. Which is alright by me because just her being at our table was awesome."
Maybe Addison had a point. She really didn't have to do all of those things. She could've easily just signed 2 pieces of paper and been on her way, but she didn't.
"So, what should I do? I mean, if she does have a crush on me?"
"I say... enjoy it! You're here for 2 weeks. On your first day, you run into an A List celebrity, and now she's crushing on you. You're obviously crushing on her too. Enjoy the time with her, if you choose to spend time with her."
"You're right! I am just going to enjoy the time I have here. Obviously, I didn't plan on running into her but now that I have, I will just enjoy whatever she puts out there. Plus, being here with my best friend is the best vacation ever already.. Callie Torres is just icing on the very large cake!"
We clink our glasses and enjoy the breeze from the ocean. Tomorrow can't get here fast enough.
Only my first day and it's already the best vacation ever!
A/N So, I had this idea in my head while reading a few other fanfics. Some had Callie as a singer and Arizona as a surgeon, some had both Arizona and Callie as actresses. So, I figured I'd just write my own A/U for Calzona. Not to take away from my other story, Love Is In The Air. I will write for both as much as I can. I'm actually enjoying writing fanfic. Hope you enjoy this first chapter. It will follow Arizona and Callie through Arizona's 2 week visit to LA and when she returns to Seattle. Can our girls be together? We'll just have to wait and see!
