room with him anymore. Thanks.”
This couldn’t be real. You had spent years avoiding this moment, even
when you were 100% sure that it would happen eventually. You didn’t want to do
it, you didn’t want to ask for his help,
but you knew you had no other choice. This man, whoever he was, was terrorizing
Star City and had been doing it for weeks. The police hadn’t been able to catch
him and you knew there was one person who could do it.
Your ex-fiancée, aka Oliver Queen, aka The Green Arrow. You two had been
together for 5 years and engaged for six months. Apparently, Oliver Queen was
eager to get married but The Green Arrow stopped him. His double identity never
was a problem during your time together. You knew how dangerous it was but,
being a police, you understood why he did what he did and you were willing to
help any time he asked. Everything worked out.
Or used to until he became mayor. You had never felt prouder of him. He even
proposed to you in front of everyone, making you feel like you were the only
one in a crowd. Your life was just perfect: you had a job you loved, you loved
your city, your apartment, your fiancée and had great friends.
But Oliver started to be more and more distant every day. He always said
he was busy with his duties as Mayor and his night duties as the Green Arrow. You
understood and tried to find the time to be with him. Everything went to hell
the day you walked into his office, planning on taking him out for lunch, and
you found him making out with Susan Williams, the reporter.
They stepped away from each other when they heard someone coming into
the office. Obviously, they never thought it would be you. Oliver’s face
changed immediately but you didn’t give him time to say anything. All you did
was turn around and walk back out of his office. That was the end of your
And there you were, two years later, trying to find a way to solve the
murder of those seven civilians in seven weeks. The police was desperate,
knowing a new murder was coming. The town was terrified, not knowing who this
guy was. And you knew exactly what to do, but still was trying to find another
way, someone else to help you. Anyone but him.
Yet, you knew you were out of options. So you got up, took your coat and
keys and headed towards where the lair was. The drive there passed faster than
what you wanted, you needed more time. But before you realized it, you were in
front of the old building where the lair was. Old memories of those times you
went in there crashed you like a hurricane, making you want to run away. But it
wasn’t the time to think about yourself; you had to think about your city and
the scared people that lived in it.
So you took a deep breath, and made your way towards the building,
wondering if they would have improved the security. Since you were able to get
into the elevator and go down with no further problems, you guessed security
was still the same. When you stepped out of it, a smile appeared on your face
as you saw that the place was just like you remembered.
“No way!” You turned around as you recognized that familiar deep voice.
“John!” You exclaimed with a big smile as you hurried to hug him.
He had always been so protective about you that he felt more like a
brother than a friend. You really did miss him.
“How are you?” You smiled. “How are Lyla and the baby?” You asked.
“Well, the baby is not a baby anymore. He’s five now” he informed you
with a huge smile.
“Oh my God! He must be huge!” You exclaimed.
“He is” Diggle nodded with a laugh. “And how are you? What are you doing
“Actually, I’m here because I need your help” you said.
“My help?” He asked raising an
“Your help. All of you” you sighed, knowing what he meant. “Is he here?”
You asked looking around.
“He’s on his way from the City Hall” he told you.
“Busy as always” you mumbled, trying to ignore how your heart speed up
at the thought of facing him again. “I’ll wait then. This is important” you
“Is it about the murderer?” John asked as he lead you towards a table so
you could sit down.
“You always manage to find out about everything right?” You chuckled. Most
of the times you came to them for help, they already know what you were going
to ask. Some things never change. “And yes”, you nodded. “Seven weeks. Seven
murders. The police is desperate. Whoever is doing this, he doesn’t leave
anything behind. It’s so frustrating” you said.
“Long time no see”
The moment you heard his voice behind you, you could feel your whole
body tensing. Your heart was acting like it wanted to jump out of your chest,
you felt nervous and your palms were sweaty, making you curse under your
breath. Two years and he still had the same effect on you as always. Too much
for moving on.
“Hello Oliver” you said getting up and turning around.
He hadn’t changed a bit. His hair was short as usual, his eyes as blue
as always and his tallness as intimidating as it used to be. Even his smile. That
damn smile that rocked your world, that made you forget about everything, was
still there, causing you to lose the ability to speak. And that suit he was
wearing didn’t help at all.
“What a surprise” he said.
And then he just wrapped his arms around you, giving you a quick and
tight hug. Where did that come from?
“It’s good to see you” he added with a smile.
“You too” you replied, even though you still didn’t know if it was good.
“I need your help” you said.
“Straight to the point” he laughed. “I guess it is about those murders,
right?” He said taking a seat as you did the same.
“It is. We have no clue, no lead, we have nothing and it is driving us
insane. It is always the same: the victim disappears and it’s found some days
later in a random place” you explained. “There’s no connection between the
victims or the places, there are no signs of wheels on the pavement or blood. Nothing.
It’s like they just appeared there, out of nowhere” you sighed.
“Are you sure there is no leads?” Oliver asked with a frown.
“We’ve searched all the places a million times. If there was any, we
would have found it” you said, ruder than what you meant to.
He narrowed his eyes at your tone, but you didn’t apologized or
anything. You were just doing this as your last resource, you didn’t even want
to be sitting at the same table as Oliver. Especially, when obviously he was
over you and you still felt like a fifteen-year-old next to him.
“I’m going to call Felicity to see what she can find” Diggle said
getting up from the table and leaving you alone with Oliver.
Silence came in-between you like a storm. You looked away from him but
you could feel his eyes on you the whole time. Staring. Making you nervous.
“How have you been?” He finally asked.
“Fine. Thank you” you replied. You looked at him when you heard him
laughing. “What?” You snapped.
“Nice as always” he shrugged.
“Asshole as always” you said getting up from the chair. “I’ll tell
Diggle to call me if Felicity finds something”
“I can call you” he frowned getting up as well.
“I changed my number” you replied simply before turning around and
heading towards Diggle.
You could feel Oliver’s eyes on your back while you talked to Diggle. He
told you he would call you the moment they knew something so you thanked him
and went to the elevator, just wanting to be out of there and away from him. But
that was too much to ask for. Just when the doors were about to close, Oliver’s
hand stopped them and he walked in the elevator with you.
“I have to get back to the City Hall” he explained when you looked at
“I see” you said leaning against the wall.
Luckily, the ride back up wasn’t long. The moment the doors opened, you
said goodbye and walked out of that cage.
“Can’t you just leave me alone?” You snapped turning to look at him.
“What’s wrong with you?” He frowned.
“Do you think I came here because I wanted to? Do you think this was my
first choice?” You asked, trying to keep your voice down.
“Since you’re asking, I guess not” he said crossing his arms. “It’s been
two years, (Y/N)” he added.
“And you’re obviously over it” you laughed.
“You’re not?” He frowned even more. You chuckled and shook your head. He
could be so stupid.
“How’s Susan?” You asked looking back at him.
“I haven’t seen her in a long time. Answer me” he demanded as he took a
step towards you. “Aren’t you over me? Over us?”
“I thought I was” you said meeting his eyes. “Obviously, I was wrong”
you added before turning around to go to your car. You really needed to put
some distance between you two.
The next few hours were a complete hell for you. You spent the whole
time trying to focus on your work so you wouldn’t think about him, but the
whole time those blue eyes came back to hunt you. Over him? How were you
supposed to be over him when he had been everything for you? When he had been
the love of your life. You knew you would never feel for anyone what you felt
for him, and the fact that he had forget about you was painful, since it made
you think that you hadn’t mean that much to him. But you had to work with him
this time. Just this time. And never see him again.
Before you expected it, you got a message from Diggle saying they had
something. Bless Felicity and her skills. Once again, you took your keys and
headed towards your car and towards the lair. This time you didn’t have to
think that much before going down but the moment you saw him, you felt your
knees weak again.
“(Y/N)!” Felicity exclaimed hurrying over you to hug you.
You two used to be very close back in the time when you and Oliver were
together. But after your break up you decided to take some distance from
everyone in the team. You knew she understood, all of them did, but you still
“How are you? You look so great! Oliver filled us in and I think I might
have a lead. It’s not much but maybe it can help” she said.
“I’m sure it will be so helpful. Thank you Felicity” you smiled at her
before following her to her ‘office’ where she sat down.
“(Y/N)”, Oliver’s voice said behind you. With a sigh, you turned around.
“Can we talk?”
“I’m kind of busy now” you replied.
“It will be just a minute. I promise” he insisted. You sighed and looked
“Go. I’ll still be here” she smiled at you.
With a nod you followed Oliver back to where the training room was. You
stopped in the middle of it, looking around as you remembered all the times you
trained with Oliver. He would always kick your ass but from time to time he
would let you win. A smile appeared on your lips at the memory.
“Were you being honest?” He asked behind you.
“About what?” You asked back, still not looking at him.
“Not being over us…over me” he said walking around you so he was
standing in front of you.
“Why do you want to talk about it?” You asked crossing your arms.
“It’s important to me” he shrugged.
“As important as our engagement was?” You snapped sarcastic.
“How many times do I have to apologize because of that? It was a
mistake. A horrible one. The worst one but…I never meant to hurt you” he
frowned looking down at you.
“You did a great work with that” you said rolling your eyes. He was
about to say something else, but you stopped him. “No Oliver. I don’t want to
talk about it, I don’t want to talk about the past. The only reason I came here
asking for your help, was because I was desperate and I want to save my city,
just like you do. But the moment we’re done, I’ll be walking out of that
elevator and never coming back, understand?” You told him. “You hurt me really
bad, Oliver. I spent days without leaving my apartment. I didn’t know what to
do or how to move on. Eventually I managed to keep on going with my life and I
never was over you. You were and are the love of my life, and there’s nothing I
can do to change that. That’s why I won’t be in the same room as you for more
time than necessary. So please, stop this attempts to be friendly with me. I don’t
want your friendship. All I ever wanted was your love and your respect. And even
that was too much for you to give.”
Once you finished your speech, Oliver didn’t know what to say so he just
stood there, watching you leave the room, not really knowing what to do. The moment
he saw you there at the lair, earlier that day, he thought he could make it
right and be your friend, but obviously you weren’t willing to have any kind of
relationship. Not now, not ever. He really lost you and he was an idiot for it.
