BETHYL AND #12

THANK YOU BAE ALSO SORRY IF THIS ISNT UP TO SCRATCH I HAVENT WRITTEN BETHYL IN AGES!!

#12 – things you said when you thought I was asleep

It was one of the warmer nights, where the mosquitos would linger in the air and the crickets chirped until day broke. Beth was laying down on the ground of the forest, leaves sneaking their way through her golden locks as she watched the stars wink at her from above. Daryl was sitting down next to her, his arms resting on his knees as he stared into the trees, knife clutched in one hand.

‘You should get some sleep.’ Beth advised, yawning. ‘We’ve set up the traps, we’ve checked the area.’ She dropped her voice slightly so it sounded gentler. ‘Daryl, nothing’s coming. Nothing’s chasing us. Not tonight.’

He looked down, finding her wide blue eyes on his, watching her upside-down mouth twitch into a smile. ‘C’mon.’ She said, her hand reaching up and tugging on his vest. He scanned the trees one last time before giving in. Daryl lay down so his head was just touching hers, the knife still in his hand, but loosely held. They usually slept like that, not side by side, but opposite each other, so when they’d wake up in the middle of the night, they could sit up and check in front of them for danger, and then behind them for reassurance. Just to make sure the other was still there.

‘You think we’re gonna find them soon?’ Beth asked tiredly. Daryl could hear the lull in her voice, a sound he had grown well-accustomed to since they had been separated from everyone. Since they had been alone.

He shrugged, and Beth seemed to know he had, because she let out a breath of laughter and said quietly, ‘goodnight, Daryl.’

He swallowed, and managed, ‘night.’

Beth wasn’t sure how long had passed, but somehow she couldn’t block out the crickets, couldn’t find sleep. She played with a stick she found on the ground next to her, then ripped up some leaves, hoping the movement would make her tired. As she finally began to feel her eyes grow heavy, she let her hand fall next to her side and heard the sound of her breathing even out. Halfway between sleeping and awake, she heard the familiar sound of Daryl’s low voice.

‘Sorry.’ He didn’t move, didn’t turn his head, and Beth had a suspicion that he thought she was sleeping. ‘I – sorry ‘bout your dad. Sorry ‘bout Maggie.’ He let out a shaky breath and Beth didn’t dare move until he finished. There was a bit of silence, where Beth had to remember not to hold her breath.

‘Sorry ‘bout it all, Beth.’

And she felt her insides twist at his words, her heart race with anticipation for his next ones.

She heard his ripping up leaves in his hands and she bit back a smile. He let out a low sigh, his voice shaking. ‘Sorry if I ain’t enough.’

And at his words, she felt tears coming to her eyes, because even though she had no-one else, she had him. And he had her. And he was enough. They were enough.

She sat up slightly, turning her head so she could leave a lingering kiss on his forehead, and she heard his breath hitch at the realization that she had heard it all. Laying back down, she tried to calm the beating of her heart as she looked back to the stars and said softly, ‘you’re enough, Daryl.’ And it took him a few more minutes to be able to breathe again properly, but when he finally did, he found the hammering of his heart wasn’t as painful against his ribcage as before and her voice seemed to linger sweetly around him in the warm air.

Golden Locks Under an Emerald Hood | Chapter 6

Summary: Felicity Smoak is alive. The Starling city resident was found by fishermen in the North China sea five days ago, five years after she was lost at sea and presumed dead in an accident that sunk a Smoak Technologies research vessel. Smoak was the crowning jewel of the Starling city elite—a top student at MIT at just sixteen. Shortly before her disappearance she was working with Smoak Technologies to develop a cutting edge computer micro chip. Smoak is the daughter of Starling city billionaire, Dr. Robert Smoak, who was also on board the research vessel, but is now officially confirmed as deceased.

She let each slam of her feet against the pavement echo through her body, quickly drowning out the sound of her racing heart; the early morning air dewing upon her skin as she ran. Felicity knew that completing her father’s mission wasn’t going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination, but she felt like Hercules battling the Hydra—cutting off one head only for two more to appear. Why couldn’t it be like eradicating a computer virus? Why did there have to be so many factors involved … so many … emotions? The island had carved her into shell of the girl she used to be, filling her with all the parts necessary to become a killing machine.  But lately it felt as if she were undergoing an upgrade—some of those parts slowly starting to fade away.

But some instincts that had been born on the island were still there, she thought as her muscles tensed the second she heard the footfalls behind her. It was four in the morning—no one jogged this route at that time–

Golden Locks Under An Emerald Hood

Thank you cityofolicity for your incredibly, incredibly kind and sweet words. So because of that, I decided to give the rest of you a little preview of the next chapter. I’m reworking the last scene-which is the based on the Laurel’s apartment scene in 1x02. Originally it was going to be Oliver and Felicity, but I decided to change it to Tommy and Felicity (with Oliver hovering outside the apartment–so you all get Olicity AND Merlance goodness. Especially for lieutenantsmoak)

Anyway, the preview’s below the cut, but I wanted to thank you all for the overwhelming feedback you’ve given this story. Honestly I didn’t think much of it, but it’s gotten the most notes out of any story I’ve posted. I love each and every one of you who have reblogged and liked. Sending you all lots of hugs!

Read on, followers, and enjoy! ❤

Golden Locks Under an Emerald Hood | Chapter 5

Dedicated to olicitykisses and sentence-fragments. You both continue to be my darlings! ❤

Thank you all so much to everyone who has so patiently waited for the update. I know I’ve been spending so much time writing drabbles lately, but I haven’t forgotten the multi-chaps, I promise. Major thanks to aubvi, for kicking my butt in gear and helping me guess this chapter (the kind of bridge episode) posted. Also I know Oliver suiting up isn’t mentioned in this chapter, but I promise you will see it in the upcoming deleted scenes :D

“This is a mistake.” She mumbled. as she leaned back in the metal chair.

Detective West didn’t glance up from his paperwork, but she did hear a small chuckle. “Oh believe me, I know Smoak, but evidence is evidence. And we have you on security footage at the Unidac auction with a green hood.”

Golden Locks Under an Emerald Hood | Chapter 4

Dedicated to olicitykisses and sentence-fragments. You both continue to be my darlings! ❤

This story keeps chugging along, snowballing with love and kind words and what’s that, oh yeah, fans (which is absolutely crazy to think about). So, things about this chapter that are important: we get the fallout (Oliver has some decisions to make), we finally get Diggle (major thanks to lieutenantsmoak who helped me figure that out), and we get a bit of Cisco too. Also, there might be a deleted scene coming after this that’ll pick up on something that happens in this chapter (shhhh, spoilers!)

Also, you can thank my mom for this being edited, because now she’s a huge fan of this story and she got really mad at me when she saw the other chapters weren’t edited. Love you, Mom!
