Chapter 1: Gravity
Gravity - Sara Baeillies
"Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long
No matter what I say or do
I still feel you here till the moment I'm gone"
"Are you nervous?" Harrison smiled as he drove them down the road.
"Yes." Olivia squealed. It was the internship of a lifetime. And she was lucky enough to have her best friend Harrison interning at the same law firm. "Are you?"
"Yes." He exhaled. "We're going to be interning at the best criminal law firm in the Los Angeles County."
"Try California." Olivia smiled. "I don't care what anyone says Peterson & Associates is the best criminal law firm in California."
"Someone's excited." Harrison teased.
"And you aren't?!" Olivia laughed.
"I'm a bit worried about who I'm going to be interning for, that's all."
"What do you mean?" Olivia said raising her eyebrow.
"What if I get the boss from hell? You do realize their going to work us to death."
Olivia nodded. "If we got through law school, we can get through this. Plus our internship is only a year, how bad can it be?"
"You're right." Harrison smiled as he pulled into the parking lot. "Are you ready?" He said putting the gear in park.
Olivia took a deep breath as she closed her eyes. Her stomach filled with butterflies as the anticipation built. "Ready as I'll ever be." She smiled as she undid her seatbelt and got out of Harrison's car.
Harrison laughed as he opened the door and stepped out.
"Your tie is crooked." Olivia laughed as she handed him her Prada tote to hold. She adjusted his tie and smooth out his jacket. "Better. I told you to let me fix it before we left." She smiled.
"Thank you." Harrison laughed as he handed her back her bag. "Your bra looks crooked can I fix it?" Harrison teased.
"Don't be a pervert!" Olivia laughed as she playfully hit his arm.
"I'm proud of you. I'm proud of us." Harrison smiled.
"As am I." Olivia smiled extending her hand for him to hold. Harrison took her hand in his as they made their way into the building.
Olivia's eyes darted everywhere around the absolutely incredible building. The building was fully refurbished and was breath-taking. From the glass walls to the modern art at every corner; the hotel was beautiful.
"Liv." Harrison laughing breaking Olivia out of her daze.
"Yes?" She blushed.
"We're on the 9th floor." He said as he walked them towards the elevator.
"Can we go to the bathroom quickly?" Olivia asked.
"Fine." Harrison groaned as he took a quick detour to the bathroom. "I'll wait for you here."
Olivia nodded as she made her way into the bathroom. She just needed to check the mirror quickly. She smiled in approval at her outfit. She was wearing a white pencil skirt which ended a little below the knees, a black blazer paired with a black turtle neck, finished off with her red Prada tote and black heels. Her outfit said smart but stylish, chic but sophisticated. As for her hair it was curled with the except of her front bangs which framed her face. And with that quick check in the mirror she turned on her heels and went on her way.
"Did you wash your hands?" Harrison teased.
"I just needed to check my outfit."
"You look stunning, like always." Harrison smiled as he pressed the button for the elevator.
"Thank you Mr. Wright, you don't clean up so bad yourself." Olivia smiled.
"Why thank you Mrs. Wright." Harrison teased.
Olivia rolled her eyes as she entered the elevator as it opened before them. "Mrs. Wright? In your dreams Harrison."
"C'mon. You know we're eventually going to get married." Harrison teased as he pressed the 9th floor button. "Your parents love me."
"You're too much of a whore for me to ever marry. And I'd love to know what Vanessa would think of this conversation." Olivia laughed.
"Vanessa and I have only been dating for two weeks. Plus I plan to have multiple wives, I plan to have sister wives." Harrison laughed.
"You're a pig." Olivia teased as they rode the elevator together.
"You love me."
"Debatable." Olivia sneered as they reached the 9th floor and exited together.
They both stared at the /Peterson & Associates./ sign plastered on the front door.
"Are you ready?" Harrison said extending his hand to her.
"Now or never." Olivia smiled as she took her hand in his as they entered the office together.
"Hello." A man smiled coming over to greet them. "You must be interns."
"How could you tell?" Olivia smiled.
"That overwhelming glee and excitement to be here." The man teased. "I'm Gideon Wallace."
"Olivia Pope." Olivia smiled shaking his hand.
"Harrison Wright." Harrison said shaking the man's hand as well.
"Perfect. I'll just let our associates know that you're here. We're still waiting on a few more interns so feel free to sit down. I believe you've already been assigned to your lawyer but if you'll just give me a moment I'll verify that for you." Gideon said before walking down the hall.
Olivia and Harrison nodded before taking a seat on the front couch.
"Nervous yet?" Harrison smiled.
"Mhm." Olivia nodded her head anxiously.
"Me too." He sighed.
Gideon made his way back over to them. "So you interns are extremely lucky today as we have a pretty easy day planned for you. You'll meet with your lawyer, they'll outline the roles of your internship, then take you out for lunch so you can get to know each other on a better basis. You'll be spending an extreme amount of time with your lawyer so it's important you are able to communicate. They'll ask you a bit about yourself, have you fill out a personality survey, then you'll come back here, socialize with the other lawyers and interns and then I believe you're free to go." He smiled.
Olivia's eyes widened at all of the excess of information to take in.
"It's a lot for a first day, I know." He laughed. "You'll catch on quick. Us lawyers are pretty fast talkers."
"Sounds good." Harrison smiled.
"So Harrison you are actually paired with Sally Langston. Olivia your lawyer actually isn't in just yet but Harrison if want to follow me I'll show you to your work station and introduce you to Sally."
Harrison nodded as he got up from the couch and followed Gideon.
"Have you heard from Fitz? He's supposed to be here by now! He has an intern for crying out loud." Gideon exhaled.
"Relax." Keith laughed as he poured himself a coffee. "I'll get him on the phone."
"He's playing with FIRE." Gideon sighed before storming off.
Keith smirked to himself as he pulled out his phone.
There was a buzzing vibration somewhere beneath the sheets. Fitz rummaged through the sheets pushing the random naked blonde in his bed over in the process.
"Hello?" Fitz said groggily; clearly half asleep.
"Where are you?!" Keith laughed.
"Sleeping." Fitz sneered.
"Alone? Or did you bag that blonde from last night?" Keith smirked.
Fitz looked over his shoulder at the naked woman lying in his bed. "What do you think?" He laughed.
"I think you'd better hurry up because Gideon is ready to kill you."
"Gideon needs to get laid. What the hell is his problem? I don't start until 10 today." Fitz groaned.
"Wrong Fitzy boy. Today's intern day, we all get interns. Which means you start at 8:30."
"And you'd better hurry before I steal your intern because according to Hollis and Jacob; she's hot."
"Stay away from my intern Keith!" Fitz snarled jokingly. "What good is it to me if she's my intern though?"
"A lot of good, because according to Brian we are legally allowed to 'date' our interns. Meaning we can bang them with no consequences."
Fitz's ears perked up. If Brian said something, he knew it was official. "I'll be there in 20."
"What about blondey? What are you going to do about her?"
"The same thing I always do." Fitz laughed before hanging up the phone. He rolled over and tapped the young woman on the shoulder.
"Hannah, I'm going to call you a cab okay?"
"My name is Alisha." The woman groaned into the pillow.
Fitz stifled a laugh before reaching for his phone and dialling for a cab. Once he had called for a cab he raced into the shower. With a quick shower, shave and splash of deodorant and after shave he darted out. Fitz whizzed around his room throwing on a suit. He walked the blonde out of his condo and to her cab.
"I'll call you later Hannah." Fitz lied kissing her on the cheek. Fitz had no intention of calling her every; he never did when it came to women nowadays.
"It's Alisha you jack ass." She spat before getting in the cab and slamming the door shut.
Fitz laughed to himself as he made his way to his car.
"Finally! Where the hell have you been?!" Gideon snarled at Fitz as he walked in.
"You really need to get laid Gideon." Fitz smirked.
"I think you get laid enough for everyone in this office!" Gideon spat. "Now your intern has been here for over 45 minutes! I didn't know where to put her so I stuck her in her desk."
"I think that's a good start." Fitz laughed sarcastically.
"Don't." Gideon spat. "May I just say this now. Paws off."
"Not according to Brian." Fitz grinned.
"If you want to pull a Hollis and bang your intern then so be it. But I am not cleaning up any more mess." Gideon said.
Fitz rolled his eyes. Gideon would have to be the most overly dramatic, annoying man he had ever met.
"Can I go to my office now Gideon? Or is there more to this lecture?"
Gideon glared at him. "Let me introduce you to your intern." Gideon sighed as he made his way over to Fitz's office with him behind. They finally reached the corner leading to Fitz's office.
"Fitz this is your intern Olivia Pope." Gideon breathed to Fitz as he turned the corner. "I have to go now, I have errands to run." Gideon said before darting back down the hall.
Fitz felt sick, like all the food he had in his stomach was about to come up. He had already turned the corner before Gideon said the name. Olivia Pope her mere name sent chills down his spine.
Olivia felt her heart sink into her stomach. Her entire face dropped as she saw him stand before her. She got out of her seat to shake his hand but it was too late. He had already stormed right past her and into his office; slamming the door behind him.
Olivia wanted to scream as she tried to process what was going on. She couldn't believe she was seeing him again. The man she loved; the man she still loves, was now her boss. She took a moment to compose herself as she tried her best not to cry. After closing her eyes and exhaling deeply she turned around to face his office and knocked on the door.
She waited ages for any type of response until she knocked again. Her heart was racing and her palms were sweaty. Olivia fought back the tears that were dying to be released. After a minute or so she slowly creaked the door open to see him facing the wall with his back to her. She slowly entered his office quietly.
"Get out." He snarled.
"I know you don't like me but—" Olivia said closing the door behind her.
Fitz scoffed. "Don't like you?!" Fitz spat. "No." He scoffed getting out of his chair as he walked over to her. "Olivia, I hate you." He spat at her. "I'm going to go talk to Brian and have you reassigned." He snarled as he stormed past her.
Olivia waited until she heard him leave until she allowed the tears to spill from her eyes. She allowed herself to cry for a few moments before realizing where she was. She had worked too hard to get where she was. Olivia wiped her eyes quickly before exiting his office and went back to awkwardly sitting at her desk.
About 10 minutes went by and Fitz returned. He motioned to her to join him in his office. Olivia got out of her chair and followed him inside and closed the door behind her.
"No reassignments." He scoffed. She could tell he was enraged.
Olivia nodded as she looked down at the floor.
"So I guess we're stuck. That is unless you want to fuck off, run across town and disappear into thin air." He snarled at her.
Those words were like slaps to Olivia's face. She continued to be silent and avoid eye contact.
"Are you going to say anything?" He spat. "It's been 3 fucking years and you can't say anything."
"I'm sorry." Olivia whimpered with tears in her eyes.
"What?" Fitz scowled.
"I'm sorry." Olivia whimpered a bit louder for him to hear.
Fitz scoffed at her. "Get out." He growled.
Olivia nodded as she quickly left the room and headed back to her desk.
"I've filled out your personality survey myself for the most part." Fitz spat as he walked over to her desk located right outside his office. "There's one question missing."
Olivia nodded looking up at him.
"Where did you finish law school?" He scowled. This question was intentionally made to hurt her. He wanted to read it out loud to her to embarrass her.
"Berkley." Olivia whimpered.
Fitz nodded as he scribbled it down on her paper. "We're supposed to have lunch and socialize. But there's no way in hell I'm doing that. So here." Fitz spat slamming a credit card down on her desk. "Go wild. I'll be back later." He snarled before walking off.
"Hey hey!" Harrison said as Olivia pulled him into the restrooms. "What's wrong? Why are you crying?"
Olivia bawled into Harrison's shirt hysterically.
"Liv! Talk to me!" Harrison said panicked as he pulled her off him. "What's wrong?"
Olivia couldn't speak, she just stared at him with weak eyes.
Harrison swallowed hard as he knew exactly what it was. "Are you serious? Here?"
Olivia nodded her head trying her best not to start crying again.
Harrison nodded as he took her head to his chest. He knew first hand how hard their break up had been on Olivia. She was still the same Olivia but when it came to love she was completely closed off. She hadn't even kissed anyone since their breakup. At berkley she attended her classes, did her homework and went home. She had no interest in dating, love or sex because they both knew someone else had her heart. Someone who she couldn't be with.
"He's your lawyer isn't he?" Harrison sighed as he stroked her head trying her best to calm her down.
Olivia nodded into his chest.
"Switch with me."
"I can't." Olivia choked. "No reassignments."
"What are you going to do?"
"I don't know." Olivia cried.
"I really have to go Liv. Hold on until we get home okay." Harrison said kissing her forehead before exiting the washroom.
"Come in." Fitz yelled to the knock at his door not expecting it to be Olivia. She closed the door behind her and swallowed hard at what she was about to say.
"I know you hate me. I know I'm the last person you want here. But I've worked too hard in law school and out to get this internship. So I'm not quitting."
"You do whatever you want Olivia. You always have." He spat.
Olivia ignored his jab at her. "What time do I start tomorrow?"
"Alright." Olivia nodded.
"You can leave."
Olivia nodded as she exited his office, grabbed her bag from her desk and met Harrison at the front.
"Are you ready?"
Olivia nodded and Harrison put his arm to her lower back as he walked them to the elevator. They made it all the way inside his car before Olivia began to cry again.
"What did he say Liv?" Harrison said pulling out of the parking lot.
"He hates me. He really really hates me."
"Liv you don't know that." Harrison sighed.
"I do." Olivia sobbed. "He told me to my face."
Harrison nodded. "How do you feel about him? Do you hate him as well?" Since they left Stanford, Harrison hadn't dared to bring him up. He knew Olivia was far too fragile when it came to him.
"I love him." Olivia choked. "I've always loved him."
"How was your intern?" Keith smiled as he flung open the door to Fitz's office. "None of us got to meet her properly." He sneered.
"She's fine." Fitz said coldly.
"So I've heard." Keith winked.
Fitz exhaled deeply. "Are you done work now?"
Keith nodded. "Just waiting for Jacob and Hollis to grab their jackets."
"Good." Fitz spat getting out of his seat. "Because I need to get very very drunk."
"If you hurry we can still make happy hour." Keith smiled as Fitz walked past him.
"Where are you two off to?" Hollis chuckled as him and Jacob made their way towards them.
"We are all off to get Fitzgerald drunk at happy hour." Keith grinned.
"Sounds good." Hollis laughed as they made their way to the elevator.
"Fitz you have to be the luckiest man alive. I saw your intern twice today... She is something ELSE." Jacob winked.
Fitz ignored him and pressed the button for the elevator.
"Who needs an intern when you have a bar full a women downstairs enjoying happy hour?" Hollis chuckled.
