A/N: Well here we are at the final chapter. I know some of you are asking why so short, but its really not that short. It should be around 13,000 words at the end. I just believe in longer chapters not more chapters. So here we are. We've gone through love and drama and now Fletcher and Olive are stuck in an elevator (kinda like Olive's play). So let's find out how it ends
I do not own ANT Farm. That belongs to Disney.
Chapter 8: Love in an Elevator
Olive began to hyperventilate as they stood there in the middle of the broken down elevator. She was breathing in and out so rapidly that Fletcher was worried that she would pass out. He stood in front of her and looked her in the eyes while gently rubbing her arms.
"It's okay Olive. I'm here and I'm sure someone will come to help us soon," Fletcher said soothingly.
Slowly Olive's breathing returned to normal and she began to calm down. For the briefest of moments she started to smile at him, but then her face turned hard again and she pulled away. She then turned around and faced the wall with her arms folded and ignored him.
"Olive?" Fletcher asked softly, but she didn't respond. "I know you don't want to talk to me, but please listen to what I have to say."
When she didn't respond he continued talking.
"I know you hate me now, but I wanted you to know that I never meant to hurt you. I'm completely inexperienced when it comes to dating, so I say and do stupid things when I'm nervous. I really was having a great time on our date and I wanted to kiss you, but I was scared. I didn't want to ruin everything by going to fast," Fletcher said, hoping it didn't come off as empty excuses.
Olive stirred slightly, but she didn't speak or turn around, so Fletcher continued.
"When I said you weren't my girlfriend I didn't do it to hurt your feelings. We hadn't made anything official and I didn't want to jump the gun," he added.
Olive sniffed slightly, indicating that she had started crying, which made Fletcher feel worse.
"We've known each other for a long time and you're one of my best friends. The last thing I would want to do is lose you. I know I'm not good at showing it sometimes, but you mean the world to me Olive. I am so sorry for taking you for granted. I know I became obsessed with Chyna and I made you feel forgotten in the process and for that I don't deserve you," he said as his own tears began to flow.
When he paused to wipe away tears he could hear Olive crying and it made him feel awful.
"I don't think you're disgusting. I hate myself for ever even implying that. You're beautiful Olive. I messed up bad and I don't blame you for hating me. Please forgive me," Fletcher concluded.
There was a moment of silence, that felt like an eternity, after Fletcher stopped talking before Olive finally spoke.
"I don't hate you Fletcher," she said without turning around.
"Good, and I don't think you're crazy. I'm the one who is crazy for not realizing what I had in front of me all along," he replied in relief.
When Olive still didn't turn around Fletcher spoke again.
"I know the real reason you tease me."
"What?" Olive asked, finally turning around.
"Angus just told me about what you said in the Outback," Fletcher replied, causing Olive's eyes to widen in surprise.
"I...don't remember what I said."
"I know that's not true," Fletcher said with a nervous laugh.
He then tentively stepped closer to Olive and when she didn't move he continued.
"A surprisingly wise person once told me that a love not worth fighting for isn't worth anything. I couldn't give up on us that easily Olive," Fletcher said with a smile.
"What...what are you saying Fletcher?" Olive asked.
"I'm saying that I love you Olive."
Olive looked at him in wide eyed surprise as a few tears cascaded down her cheeks. It took a moment for her to find the words.
"You mean that? You're not teasing me?" she asked quietly.
"Of course I mean it," he replied before stepping forward and gently wiping away her tears. "Please don't cry Olive."
Olive finally moved forward and flung her arms around him. She hugged him tightly and then whispered in his ear.
"I love you too Fletcher. It took you long enough to figure that out," she said and then let out a little laugh.
"Yeah, well I tend to be a bit stupid like that," he replied with a laugh of his own.
"You're not stupid...stupid," she whispered and Fletcher just laughed.
Fletcher just stood there for a moment, holding her, feeling her against him, feeling her heartbeat, and breathing in her scent. He almost wouldn't have minded if the elevator never moved again.
"What do you say we give that first date another try?" he asked her.
"If we ever get out of here I would love to," she replied.
"We can do whatever you want, my treat. I just want it to be perfect to make up for before. Just as long as those dang orphans aren't there! Can you believe the nerve of them? I still have our photos by the way. I..."
"Just shut up and kiss me already you goof," Olive said with a wink.
Fletcher smiled in slight embarrassment and then leaned forward. When their lips met it was amazing. Even though neither of them were very experienced, there was no awkwardness. It was as if their lips fit together perfectly. Fletcher never wanted it to end and he was sure Olive felt the same. He could taste Olive's sugar-free gum as he deepened the kiss and it tasted so sweet. To him it would always be the taste of Olive. He lightly ran a hand through her hair as they continued, but unfortunately they eventually had to come up for air.
"Wow! You're a good kisser! I wasn't expecting the tongue. Very nice!" Olive said breathlessly.
"That was a little trick I learned from my Love Guru," Fletcher responded with a grin.
"I'll explain later," he said before kissing her again.
As they continued to kiss the elevator came to life again, which interrupted them.
"What the heck!?" Olive said in frustration.
"You're upset?" Fletcher asked.
"I was kind of hoping we would be stuck in here for awhile," she replied with another wink.
"We're not going anywhere," Fletcher said and then hit the emergency stop button before going back to the kiss.
Meanwhile downstairs, everyone was gathered around, waiting for the elevator to come down. The maintenance man had got it moving, but then it suddenly stopped again.
"Why did it stop?" Chyna asked.
"I don't know. Let me see," the maintenance man replied.
"Fletcher better not be up there putting the moves on my girl!" Angus said in anger.
"As mad as Olive is it's more likely she's killed him by now," Chyna said worriedly.
"Ah! I got it! Here it comes!" the maintenance man said.
The elevator finally came down and when the doors opened Olive and Fletcher fell out. They were still embracing and still kissing until they hit the floor.
"Oops, must have hit the button again," Fletcher said in confusion.
When they looked up they found an overjoyed Chyna and a furious Angus standing over them.
"Quimby! You're dead!" Angus yelled.
"Uh oh!" Fletcher said as he scrambled to his feet and took off running with Angus chasing him.
"Wow! Someday you'll have to tell me what happened up there," Chyna said as she helped Olive to her feet.
"Why not now?" Olive asked.
"Well you should probably help your boyfriend. I think Angus is out for blood."
"Nah...he'll be fine. Just keep running around sweety! Angus will tire out eventually!" Olive called out to Fletcher.
"I'm trying!" Fletcher cried out while running with his arms flailing above his head.
"I'm so glad you two worked things out. You guys really are my two favorite sweethearts," Chyna said with a smile.
"Thanks Chyna. What can I say? I'm in love with that little weirdo," Olive said with a loving smile of her own.
