Next chapter. Oh and I got a review that said it seems that Olivia is quickly putting her feelings for Fitz aside and that's not what I'm doing. She is letting someone else in. They aren't together or having sex or anything they just get each other in a way. They are both hurt and so they are confiding and leaning on each other. He will become like a romantic Stephen. This takes place one month after the last chapter.
DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN SCANDAL OR CASTLE.
Olivia quickly got up out of her bed and ran into the shower. She was having lunch with Rick. She liked that she had a friend that she could actually rely on. They would talk all the time and it seems that they always are in the elevator at the same time. She hurried out the shower and picked out a black pair of pants with a white blouse and black jacket with black heels and a black and white necklace. Her hair was straight with a curl at the bottom. She quickly grabbed her purse and keys before she left to the elevator and of course when she got in Rick was there like always.
"Hello Olivia" he said with a smile as she walked in the elevator.
"Hello Richard" she replied as the elevator doors closed and the elevator started going down. When the doors opened, they walked to Remy's, it became their thing. Once lunch was done they headed back to the apartment like always. They nodded to the doorman as they entered the building and went into the elevator.
"So I was wondering, you should have a nickname!" Rick said as he pushed the button and she smiled.
"A nickname?" she questioned.
"Yea like I really want to call you Livvy but I want to make sure it's okay with you first." he said and she was nervous for a second. The last person who called her Livvy was... Fitz.
"Because it a really pretty name for a really pretty person. See it matches perfectly!" he exclaimed and she couldn't help but to smile. She was really impressed that he could be this...charming and adorable and make her feel carefree.
"Sure, you can call me Livvy, but what do I call you?" she said as the elevator stopped on her floor.
"You can call me Castle." he said as the doors opened.
"Castle." she said as she walked out the elevator.
"Castle" he confirmed before the door shut.
She walked to her apartment and quickly entered and pulled out her phone. She had tons of messages and missed calls from a private number and she felt her stomach drop. She hoped and hoped it wasn't who she thought it was as she opened one of the messages. She dropped her phone after she read it.
"Come home. Olivia I love you so please just come home. Come. Home." is what the message read and what her worst nightmare was. She wanted to start over. Move on to the best of her ability because everyday she hurt and missed him. She missed his touch and his voice. She missed being his sweet baby but she had to move on because she hurt, Everything in her hurt because to even think he would even do such a thing to her makes her feel sick. it burns to know that he has her number because she knows it's gonna cause more hurt. She deleted every message and everything from her call log. She went to her cabinet and grabbed a glass and a bottle of wine and went to her couch. She sat down and poured herself a glass but before she even took a sip she broke. She just cried and cried. She couldn't take it any more. She had to cry because, she was alone and no one would ever know, except for the time she cried at Castle's house. She cried and finally took a sip of her wine watching as a tear fell into her glass. She continued crying until she heard a knock a the door. She looked up and wiped her eyes. She got up and looked out the peep-hole and fell to the ground. She could not stand because everything hurt. It must have been loud because she got a call from Castle and a message. She sent him a text back to come to her apartment. She wanted Fitz to leave so she guessed that if she had someone over he would. He would let her go.
Rick had headed downstairs to check on Olivia because he knew she was going through a rough time even if she wouldn't talk about he got to her door he saw a man but as he got closer he saw that the man was the former president of the united states. He shook his head in disbelief as he approached the man.
"Hi" he said as a secret service agent approached him.
"Who are you? "Fitz asked.
"I'm here for Olivia, she just sent me a text to come over so I came and I'm Rick Castle." He said holding his hand out but nothing came. He stepped back and sent Olivia a text that he was there. A few minutes later, he heard the door open a Olivia was there.
"Castle, please come here." She said and you can hear the fear in her voice, the pain and hurt in her voice. Castle walked over and she let him in before Fitz got there. When he was in his apartment she fell apart. She hugged him as she cried. She needed someone to help her because she couldn't do it alone. When she settled down he finally said something.
"Livvy, what is wrong?" He asked as he looked down at her and she looked up.
"That is my ex-boyfriend." She said with a sniffle.
"Really?" He asked and she nodded.
"Yea" she said sadly and softly.
"You want me to kick his ass?" He said and she laughed slightly.
"You could get arrested for that" she laughed.
"And it would be so worth it." He laughed back
"I guess." She said as they took a seat on her couch.
"So the former president of the united states is your ex boyfriend." He said and she nodded.
"Yea he's my ex" she said sadly.
"You got to dump the president of the united states?" he said eagerly
"Who said I dumped him?" she questioned.
"No man is stupid enough to let someone like you get away." he said with a smile.
"And someone like me is?" she questioned.
"A person who is beautiful and smart at the same time and has the best smile." he said and she blushed. It was fun flirting with him, he made her laugh and blush and they were only friends and that is what she needed.
"Thank you" she smiled
"So what are you going to do?" he asked and she sighed.
"I guess I can send him away." she said sadly, getting up and walking to the door.
"Good luck!" Rick said as she opened the door and walked out shutting it behind her. She looked over to see Fitz on the ground with his head in his hands.
"Fitz." she whispered but he didn't reply or even look up.
"Fitzgerald Grant!" she said louder and he jumped up and looked at her.
"Liv, Olivia oh Olivia." he said with a sigh.
"Why are you here?" she asked and he gave her a confused look.
"Why. Are. You. Here?" she repeated and he sighed again.
"So you can come home, so you can be where you belong." he said and she laughed.
"I am where I belong, I am fine, perfectly fine." she said and he sighed
"No you are not, you aren't loved here and you don't know anyone, you are alone and I want you to come home." he said and she rolled her eyes.
"I am fine, and I know people. I am not coming home because you want me to, I do not belong to you anymore. You let her into OUR house and had SEX with her, the woman you despised for years, so no I'm not going back with you and that is not home!" she yelled and he felt his temper rise.
"You were never at home, you were never there!" he yelled and she stopped all thought.
"You cannot say that, you know how much my job means to me, you never stopped by to see me so you cannot say that. Just because I am not there doesn't mean I didn't mean I didn't love you, doesn't mean you can cheat on me... with her!" she yelled in defense.
"Liv, you weren't there, always came home late and you were always tired and you weren't there!" he yelled back, letting all his anger flow.
"You never said a thing about it you just let it slide, you never talked to me but you cheat, you though that was the way to fix it to call up your ex-wife and have sex with her. Was that even the first time?, Was that the first time you had sex with her?" she said and she felt the tears come back.
"Really... can you leave?' she said almost as a whisper
"Liv, please..." he begged.
"No, can you please leave, leave my apartment, leave my life, just leave!" she whispered again and he moved closer to give her kiss but she pushed him away and he turned.
"I love you." he said before he walked away and she went back to her apartment. She looked at Castle, who had a worried look on his face before she broke. She didn't want to cry but she couldn't hold it back. She stood there and she cried and he came over and gave her a hug, a much-needed one.
"I really like your hugs." she said between her cries.
"I really like you" he though but knew it wasn't the time for that.
"I know, my hugs are awesome." he said and she laughed slightly.
"I really like you more than I like your hugs." she thought as they continued to hug before she finally let go.
"You all good?" he asked
"I am fine, you need to get Alexis. I'm fine."
"You sure?" he asked and she rolled her eyes.
"Positive." she said
"Okay, I'll see you later." he said as they made their way to her door and she opened it.
"See you later Livvy" he said as he bent down and gave her a kiss on the cheek.
"Bye castle" she blushed as he left and she closed the door.
"If only!" she sighed as she went back to her wine that was still on her coffee table.
OMG They like each other. OMG Fitz showed up, how did he know where she was? well hope you enjoyed the chapter.
