Thanks to my wonderful betas: Scronkidile and Elodealeaf
Arizona jolted awake. She felt a heavy weight on top of her and Addison's face popped into view. Arizona squinted up at her, waiting for her to say something. The silence stretched out as Addison just grinned at her. Finally, Callie's voice came in from the living room.
"Addison! Just wake her up and bring her in!"
Addison laughed and scooted back off the bed. Arizona just watched her. She rolled her eyes.
"Come on, sleepy head! You heard the lady." Addison gestured largely before reaching out and grabbing Arizona's outstretched hands. She pulled her out of bed. Addison looked down at her. "You might want to put some clothes on, though…"
Arizona blushed. She was naked from last night. Callie had insisted on celebrating Arizona's entry into La Femme. Callie was still healing; her gunshot wound was only a couple weeks old and the cut on her arm had been fairly deep. Luckily, Erica's shot had hit the vest and only left a bruise.
After they had killed Erica and Arizona found out Callie was alive, Arizona had been exhausted. La Femme explained that the handkerchief was the symbol of their gang. Calliope's had the most blood-stained because she'd been in the longest and Arizona only had Erica's blood. Each of them was monogrammed. Apparently, Calliope had had Arizona's made after she'd shown up in the middle of the night demanding to be part of the group.
Arizona walked over to the dresser, rifling through the underwear drawer. She'd meant to borrow Callie's underwear, because her stuff was still in boxes, but all of her clothes were there. She opened the next drawer. Her shirts were neatly folded next to Callie's. The next drawer, pants. She walked into the bathroom. Her blue toothbrush rested in a cup next to Callie's red one. Throwing open the shower curtain, she saw her razor with Callie's and brand new shampoo and conditioner bottles on the rack.
She walked back into the bedroom. "When did my stuff get put away?"
Addison grinned. "We did it while you were sleeping."
"That isn't creepy…" Arizona opened the drawer again and pulled out her underwear. As she put it on, she tried to figure out what was happening. If it was another test, she was going to scream. It was already crazy that the final test to join La Femme was killing someone. She grabbed a big t-shirt and hesitated. "Should I dress up? What's happening?"
Addison just shrugged. "You can wear whatever you want."
Arizona narrowed her eyes. At least they were letting her get dressed this time. If this was a final interrogation, she wasn't going to be naked. She grabbed a blouse and a pair of jeans. This was crazy.
"Addison, what is taking so long?" Callie's voice called from the living room. "Just drag her out!"
"It's not my fault someone left their girlfriend naked last night! If you had planned this better, we could have avoided this!"
There was a brief silence from the living room and then a reply. "Whatever! Just bring her out!"
Arizona finished buttoning her pants and turned towards Addison. She threw her hands up, exasperated. "Alright, let's do this!"
Addison laughed. "No need to look so grim!" She moved behind Arizona and covered her eyes. "Just wait!"
Arizona walked forward, awkwardly holding her arms out in front of her. Her fingers hit the door and she fumbled around for the doorknob. She blushed as she felt around the door, but couldn't find it. "Um, help?"
Addison sighed. "Teddy! Open the door!"
Arizona felt the door open. Teddy giggled when she saw the awkward picture of Addison blinding Arizona and Arizona struggling to walk. She backed up, letting them through. Arizona stumbled forward. She jerked back as Addison stopped abruptly.
Arizona frowned. "This is happening in the living room?"
"Yup!" Addison giggled. "You're going to be so surprised."
Callie laughed. "Ok, Addie, you can let go."
Addison took her hands away and Arizona squinted in the bright light of the living room. Everyone was standing around; Mark, Cristina, Meredith, Lexie, April, Alex, and Teddy. They were all wearing brightly colored party hats. Balloons were tied to all of the chairs and streamers hung from the ceiling. Arizona looked around the room in confusion. It looked like a 5 year old's birthday party.
"What is this?"
Callie stepped forward holding a cake. Arizona laughed when she read the cake. "Congrats on Joining the Mafia" was spelled out in dark read letters. She looked up at Callie and smiled.
"Thank you. I'm super flattered."
Callie laughed and shrugged. "Yeah, well. It's the least I could do."
The loud blast of a party horn blared. Cristina and Meredith laughed as Arizona and Callie jumped. Cristina stepped forward.
"Alright, Alright. Let's drink!"
As everyone started moving around, getting drinks and talking, Calliope smiled. There was still a lot of work to be done. They had to figure out what to do with all the new territory and they would need to find a new head of the militia. But as she felt Arizona's arm wrap around her waist, she was content. They had won. She had a fantastic family and a fantastic girlfriend and a fantastic job. It was good to be king.
