I often cry myself to sleep because Calzona’s break up still hurts deeply. In the first days and weeks I would even cry during the day but thankfully I have that under control now. They were my happiness, I’ve been with them since the beginning. My biggest wish is that they find their way back to each other.
Author’s Note: Again, sorry for posting a little later than usual. Hope you enjoy!
Arizona sat back in her chair and
smiled as she watched her girlfriend thoroughly charm her parents.
After the awkwardness of the
initial meeting, Arizona and Callie had dressed and joined Arizona’s parents
for breakfast at the dining table.
Arizona’s mother had taken it upon herself to make breakfast while
waiting for Arizona and Callie to return.
“So, Callie, how did Arizona
convince you to put up with her?”
Arizona’s father asked with a huge smile.
“Dad!” Arizona gasped as Callie smirked.
“While it may have taken me awhile
to agree to the date, it had nothing to do with Arizona as a person. I’m glad she wore me down because I would
have missed out on spending time with a truly wonderful person. Being with her is no hardship.” Callie replied sincerely.
Arizona snapped her head in Callie’s
direction, trying to formulate words after that sweet declaration. But no words would come.
“That was lovely! Arizona, you better not let this one
go.” Arizona’s mother instructed.
“I don’t intend to.” Arizona admitted softly. This time it was Callie’s turn to swing her
head in Arizona’s direction.
“Good to know. I don’t plan to let you go either.” Callie acknowledged.
The two got lost in each other’s
eyes until they heard a throat clearing at the other end of the table.
“Well, I have some things I have
to do so I’m going to get out of your hair so you three can catch up.” Callie said as she stood up from the table.
“Wait…you’re leaving?” Arizona asked quickly.
“We can meet up for lunch or
dinner. I have a few errands I have to
run. You’ll barely have a chance to miss
me.” Callie replied as she grabbed her
things and headed for the door.
“As soon as you’re out the door,
I’ll miss you.” Arizona confessed.
“You’re too sweet. I’ll miss you too Beautiful.” Callie admitted.
Callie quickly looked up at
“It was nice meeting you. I’ll see you later.” She said as she sent a wave in their
“It was wonderful meeting
you.” Arizona’s mother responded as her
Arizona opened the door and
followed Callie out. She pulled Callie
in for a passionate kiss.
“I can’t wait until dinner. We better see you for lunch.” Arizona grumbled.
“Your wish is my command.” Callie said with a curtsy. She grabbed Arizona’s hand and kissed
it. Then she grinned and walked towards
“See you later.” Arizona called out.
“Yes, you will.” Callie answered back as she entered the
Arizona went back into her
apartment with a huge smile on her face.
“I have to say Sweetie, I really
like Callie.” Arizona’s mother said when
she saw her.
“I can see she’s different and
you’re different with her.” Her mother
“Different good or different
bad?” Arizona inquired.
“Good. It’s very good.” Her mother said softly.
Arizona sent a warm smile in her
“I’m going to grab a few things
and we can head out. I’ll show you the
sights and give you a tour of the hospital.”
“Sounds good.” Arizona’s father said from behind the
newspaper he was reading.
“Oh Sweetie? Based on what I saw when Callie first came
out of the room, you’ve done quite well for yourself.” Arizona’s mother teased with a mischievous
glint in her eyes. She heard her father
snort behind the newspaper.
“Mom!” Arizona admonished.
“What? I’ve got eyes.” Her mother said with a chuckle. Her dad started laughing out loud.
shook her head and went to grab her stuff so they could start their
Arizona was happy by the time
they got to the hospital. It turned out
Callie was called in so they would get to see her before lunch.
She had shown her parents around
the hospital and in particular her floor.
Now they were looking at the surgical board to see what OR Callie was
in. They were going to get to see her
lady in action.
She led her parents to the
gallery and settled in. It was rather
quiet in there as it was a run of the mill hip replacement.
She was watching raptly and
responding to any questions her parents had.
After about ten minutes Callie
looked up and noticed them in the gallery.
She sent a wink in Arizona’s direction.
Arizona started blushing and noticed both her parents had turned to look
at her after the wink.
“She’s very impressive.” Her mother said softly.
“I know.” Arizona replied proudly.
Her mother was silent for a moment. Her father had gotten up to go grab a coffee
from the vending machine.
“You love her don’t you?” Her mother asked delicately.
Arizona whipped around to look at
her mother. Her mouth opened and closed
a few times.
“Yes.” Arizona whispered.
“If it’s any consolation, I could
tell by the way she looks at you, she’s head over heels for you too.” Her mother pointed out.
“It’s too soon to feel like this,
isn’t it?” Arizona questioned.
“Arizona, when it feels right, it
feels right. Who decides what’s too
soon? If you love her, you love
her. That’s just the way it is.” Her mother stated sagely.
didn’t respond, but she had heard her.
After her surgery was completed,
Callie was able to leave so they ended up taking her parents to a small café
After lunch they had dropped her
parents off at their hotel, planning to meet them for dinner the next night.
Arizona drove Callie to her place
and walked her up to her apartment.
“So, I wasn’t expecting to meet
the parents, but I really enjoyed today.
Your parents are great.” Callie
said when they reached her door.
“They think you’re pretty great
too.” Arizona replied as Callie opened
the door to let them in.
“Are you sure? I mean, they seemed to, but…” Callie was interrupted by Arizona pressing
her lips to hers.
“Callie, they loved you. They love you as much as I d….thought they
would.” Arizona stumbled over her
sentence. No matter what her mother had
said, while she knew she was in love with Callie, she thought it was too soon
to say it.
Callie observed her for a moment,
knowing that Arizona was going to say something else but deciding not to push
the issue. Arizona was relieved.
“So you want to watch some
TV?” Callie asked casually.
Arizona had been desperate to be
alone with her girlfriend. Now that they
were sleeping together, she couldn’t get enough. She most assuredly did not want to watch TV.
“No.” Arizona responded quickly.
“How about a movie?” Callie questioned.
Arizona looked at Callie as if
she had grown another head.
“I don’t want to watch
anything.” Arizona refused.
“Listen to music?” Callie spouted another idea.
“No.” Another refusal. It was at this point that Arizona noticed the
teasing smirk on Callie’s face.
“Oh you brat!” Arizona quickly pulled Callie to her for a
“Oh! That’s what you want to do. I guess that’s okay with me.” Callie said with a disinterested shrug.
Callie walked to her bedroom with
Arizona staring after her, perplexed by Callie’s behaviour.
After a few minutes, Callie’s
shirt came flying out of the room and landed at Arizona’s feet.
Callie stuck her head out the
“Coming?” She husked.
“I will be soon.” Arizona said as she ran to the bedroom and
shut the door.
Author’s Note: Posting a little later than usual, but better late than never. Hope you like it!
The next evening Arizona was wearing a hole in the carpet as
she paced back and forth while she waited for Callie to arrive. April had made herself scarce, so Arizona and
Callie would have time to themselves to figure out what comes next.
Arizona had made dinner and tidied up, but now she was
nervous and had no idea what to do with herself till Callie arrived. She looked up at the clock and noted Callie
should be there any minute. She finally
decided to sit down and watch some TV in order to settle her nerves.
A few minutes later, there was a knock on the door. Arizona turned off the TV, stood up,
straightened her clothes and headed to the door.
She opened the door and there stood an adorably nervous
Callie, who was shifting from foot to foot.
greeted with a soft smile. She opened
the door wider indicating with her head that Callie should come in.
“Hey.” Callie replied
as she entered.
They stood there staring at each other for a couple of
seconds, when Arizona stepped forward and hugged Callie. She pulled back slightly and gave her a
chaste kiss on the lips.
She took Callie’s coat and then led her to the sofa. Callie sat in a chair by the sofa; Arizona
sat on the sofa.
They sat staring at each other for a minute when Arizona
finally broke the silence.
“I don’t know where to start.” She admitted sheepishly.
“Me neither.” Callie
“I need… to know one thing before… we decide how to go
forward.” Arizona spoke haltingly.
Callie leaned forward and nodded her head signifying Arizona
“Have you forgiven me?
It was the thing you couldn’t get passed not so long ago.” Arizona probed in trepidation.
“Honestly, I think if I ever think about it, it’s always
going to hurt, but I’m not going to hold it against you and I’m not going to
dwell on it. I think what happened
during that storm cost you a lot and you know it. You’ve showed me lately that what you want is
a life with me and Sofia. I believe
you’re not going to cheat again Arizona.
I wouldn’t be here right now if I still doubted you.” Callie stated sincerely.
Arizona looked at Callie and realized she meant every word
“Thank you so much.”
Arizona felt as if a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.
“Arizona listen. If
we are going to do this then we can’t hold on to resentments from the
past. I forgive you and I hope you’ve
forgiven me. We can’t let the anger from
the past affect the future we want to build.”
Callie said with resolve.
Arizona nodded her head in agreement.
“Now, I think we should take things slowly. For all intents and purposes, we are
divorced. So, this is a new beginning. We start dating again and just go from
there.” Callie proposed.
“You want to date?”
Arizona asked uncertainly.
“Arizona, last time we just jumped right back into living
together. We didn’t do anything to fix
our problems and we ended up splitting.
We need to do this properly this time.
We can’t keep skipping steps.
It’s not fair to us and it’s not fair to our daughter.” Callie explained.
“We’re just dating each other, right? Nobody else?”
Arizona questioned. She didn’t
want to date anyone else and she hoped Callie felt the same.
“Of course. There
would be little point to this if we were seeing other people.” Callie responded.
“I just…” Arizona
faded out unsure if she should continue.
“Arizona, if there is one thing I’ve learned from our
relationship, it’s that we have to be open and honest with each other. We can’t hold back what we’re feeling because
when that happens, it comes out in the worst ways. Please tell me what you’re thinking.” Callie pleaded.
Arizona looked up at Callie with sadness in her eyes.
“I really wanted to come home.” She confessed as a tear slid down her face.
Callie quickly scooted over to the sofa and pulled Arizona
into her arms.
“I want that too. So
much. I just think we need to do this
right.” Callie murmured into Arizona’s
“I love you Callie.
If you want to take this slowly then let’s take this slowly.” Arizona said quietly.
“Don’t do this just for me.
This has to be something we both agree with.” Callie countered.
“It’s just…we’ve been apart for so long and to come back
together slowly seems so counterproductive.”
Arizona replied dejectedly.
Callie reached out and slowly pulled Arizona’s face towards
her so that they were looking at each other.
“I want forever with you Arizona. I don’t want to rush this because I don’t
think this works if we avoid steps. We
keep doing that and it never works.
Don’t you agree?” Callie inquired
Arizona stared at Callie for a moment before she nodded.
“I want forever too.
I don’t want to cut corners any more.
I want this to be the last time we get back together, because we’re
never going to break up again.” Arizona
The breathtaking grin she received from Callie caused
Arizona to lean in. She pressed her lips
against Callie and pushed her down on to the sofa. She was completely caught off guard when
Callie pulled back after a moment.
“Going slow also means no sex right now.” Callie said slowly.
Arizona looked at her in confusion when she looked down and
noticed she had unbuttoned a few buttons on Callie’s shirt.
She stood up and helped Callie up.
“Good call.” Arizona
responded unsteadily. Callie’s kisses
would always have an effect on her.
Callie buttoned up her shirt and then looked at Arizona with
a small smile.
“Maybe we should have some dinner now?” Callie suggested.
“Another good call.”
Arizona gestured for Callie to follow her to the table.
Having got the hard stuff out of the way for now, they sat
down to a lovely dinner unencumbered by the weight of figuring out what came
