A/N: I am so sorry for the long wait. Life has gotten pretty crazy for me. Your response to my Author's note and your support mean the world to me. It brought tears to my eyes. I love you guys! I own nothing except the story idea. Character and stuff are property of the CW and DC Comics.
I would also like to dedicate this chapter to the late Cory Monteith. He had nothing to do with this show but his death has hit me hard. I want to dedicate something that is important to me, to him.
"Bruce, what are you doing here?" Felicity smiled.
"The guys who were working the Vertigo chain in Gotham came back here. I figured we could just eliminate them here and then our work would be done."
Oliver was still tense next to Felicity. Just because Bruce was here on "business," didn't mean that Oliver would feel comfortable with Bruce and Felicity working together. Felicity grabbed Oliver's hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze.
"Sounds like a plan. I have had them under surveillance for quite sometime. YOu guys could go into the warehouse tonight and 'put the fear of God,' in them, or whatever you guys want to do." Felicity said as she let go of Oliver's hand and walked over to her computers.
Over the next few hours it was all business. Oliver, Bruce, Diggle and Felicity made their plans for entering the Vertigo compound, destroying the supplies, and getting the evidence to the police.
When it was time for the boys to be on their way they put on their disguises. One Batman and two Hood costumes, Diggle needed something to wear after all. Felicity wished Bruce and Diggle good luck and they headed up stairs. Oliver stayed back at Felicity's request.
"You better come back in one piece, Oliver Queen." Felicity whispered into his ear as she hugged him tight to her.
"I will. I have a girlfriend to come back to." Oliver smiled as they still embraced.
"Oh, I'm your girlfriend now?" Felicity smirked.
"Only if you want to be." Oliver smiled back pulling Felicity closer to him.
"I'll have to think about it..." Felicity pulled Oliver towards her and planted a kiss on him. Oliver responded eagerly, tightening his grip on Felicity and deepening the kiss.
"Hey! Lovebirds! We are on a schedule." Diggle yelled from the top of the stairs, causing Oliver and Felicity to part.
"On my way!" Oliver yelled back and reluctantly pulled away from Felicity.
Felicity grabbed his hand and pulled him close. She gave him a kiss on the cheek. "You made a very convincing argument, so sure I'll be your girlfriend."
Oliver gave her a quick peck and then bolted for the stairs because he knew the next interruption would be Bruce.
Hours later the boys returned from their mission. Felicity had been nervously pacing around the Foundry ever since they left. She had also taken to cleaning the Foundry to keep her mind off of the boys being in danger.
When the boys descended the stairs Felicity let out a breath she didn't realize she was holding. She ran and threw her arms around returned the embrace and buried his head into her neck.
"We're okay too, in case you were wondering." Bruce remarked sarcastically.
"Oliver put Felicity down and she turned to Diggle and Bruce. "I am glad you guys are okay too!" She quickly gave Diggle a hug and gave Bruce an awkward punch on the arm.
"So was the mission successful?" Felicity asked as she returned to Oliver's side, wrapping her arms around his waist. Oliver responded by putting his arm around her shoulders and pulling her closer. Bruce shifted his feet awkwardly as he watched Oliver and Felicity act like such a couple.
"Yes, the Vertigo is destroyed and the evidence of the criminal activity is on it's way to Detective Lance." Bruce told Felicity.
"We put that it was from you, Felicity. Detective Lance seems to like you. So we figured it was better to send it from you than Oliver over there." Diggle pointed to Oliver.
They all drove to the hanger where Bruce's plane was. After all of Bruce's stuff was loaded into the plane, he walked over to Felicity, Diggle, and Oliver.
"I guess this is goodbye then?" Bruce smiled at them. "Thanks for the help, all of you."
"No problem man." Diggle outstretched his hand to Bruce and Bruce took the invasion and shook Diggle's hand.
"Hey, can I talk to you in private for a minute?" Bruce asked Oliver. Oliver nodded and the men walked a few steps away from Diggle and Felicity.
"Look, I wanted to apologize, for causing so much trouble with the Felicity situation." Bruce said with a genuine voice.
"It's okay, man. And if it weren't for you coming back into the picture, I would have never got the courage to pursue my feelings for her. So I should thank you." Oliver laughed.
"Please, don't thank me for playing a part in you getting together with my ex, whom I still love very much I might add."
There was an awkward pause in the conversation. Both men turned their heads to look over at Felicity. Felicity was trying to playfully punch Diggle for some reason, both were laughing hysterically.
"Just treat her right, and don't let her go. It will be the biggest mistake of your life if you do, trust me."
"I will treat her right. I don't deserve her but for some reason she has chosen to let me love her, and she loves me too, I'm not letting that go, Bruce." Oliver gave Bruce a hug, as a peace offering, which Bruce accepted.
They walked back over to Diggle and Felicity who finally seemed to stop acting like 5 year olds. Bruce took Felicity's hand and pulled her into a hug.
"Goodbye, Ms. Smoak." he whispered into her ear.
Felicity pulled away from the embrace, "Goodbye, Mr. Wayne." She smiled and gave Bruce another quick hug.
"Don't go breaking my friend's heart, Felicity. He's a good guy." Bruce whispered into her ear and then turned to make his way to the plane.
"I know. And I won't." Felicity smiled as she made her way back to Diggle and Oliver. When she got to Oliver's side he threw an arm around her shoulder. Felicity leaned into the embrace.
They all waved as the plane took off. They waited until the plane was gone before they headed back to the car.
After Diggle left, Oliver and Felicity made their way back to her apartment. This time it didn't take too much to get Oliver to come in.
A/N 2: Cliffhanger! I think there will be one or two more chapters after this. Then an epilogue. There will also be a companion one-shot that I will publish after this story is complete. Thank you so much again for your patience. Your support means to world to me! Please review!
