Olicity Fic: The Great Phone Malfunction (or Thea's cover stories are better than her brother's) : The Fourth Part of the 'Here or There' verse...

Hey guys! Got my submission finished early this week. This is both my submission for @thebookjumper Olicity Hiatus Fic-A-Thon for the Prompt: Malfunction and the next installment in my “Here or There” verse. Thanks for reading and I would love to hear what you think!
Summary: Thea’s having some iPhone problems and she comes to Felicity for help…because why wouldn’t she? And if they catch lunch and get to know each other in the process? All the better!
Disclaimer: I own NOTHING!
It wasn’t like a date or anything. Not like a date date or anything anyway. That’s what Felicity kept telling herself. Sure, Oliver and Sara had apparently ended things (cue the internal happy dance), but that had nothing to do with this. And Felicity had nothing to do with said ending of things. She’d been perfectly happy for them. If they brought each other comfort, gave each other some shred of peace in their painful lives, who was she to judge just how selfish and twisted the whole situation was? Felicity was, admittedly, no Laurel fan even though she barely knew the woman personally. If Oliver and Sara wanted to dump salt on an obviously still gaping wound while the woman was already struggling with grief, guilt, and addiction issues…well that was their despicable decision to make, wasn’t it? It was none of Felicity’s business and she’d stayed nice and out of it.
But anyway…SO not a date! It was just a marathon. A friendly marathon between friends. There was no reason to stress and over-analyze every single little thing. No reason to type up a detailed two page itinerary…and she was totally going to delete that…in a minute.
Felicity jumped and immediately reached up to downsize the word document filling her screen. She painted on her professional smile and looked toward the door. Then she frowned confused. “Thea…I mean, Miss Queen?” Why was Thea Queen standing before her desk…and talking to her? It wasn’t unheard of for Thea to visit Oliver at the office, but she never stopped to speak to his blonde EA. She barreled straight ahead through to Oliver. Felicity was beneath the younger Queen’s notice…or she had been…before today. Felicity was honestly a little stunned that she even knew her name.
