A/N: This may be my last writing before I suddenly disappear from Tumblr. I’m going to leave for Japan on the 21st this month. Hopefully I’ll be inspired to write a lot during my trip~
It was like any other day in the HQ. You were happily cleaning your gun in your office, humming a familiar tune as you admired your precious weapon that gleamed under the artificial light.
Days like these were the best, nice and qui-
You froze, your eyes narrowing in irritation before you stood up, gently placing your cleaned gun in your pocket before stomping out of the office, slamming the metal door behind you.
“Fucking Taehyung…” You cursed his name, locking your office while mumbling insults at the man, fully aware that he was the cause of the scream because Hoseok never made his interrogation loud and obnoxious.
At her wedding, Alicia was basically led around by everyone and stepping on toes all over, eventually standing on Bob’s toes and being danced around but Bob didn’t mind. He was so gone for her, even if his toes hurt so much the next day that he couldn’t skate.
When she was filming movies she had to use a dancer double. JLo got her big break being Alicia’s body double. They keep in touch. Through JLo, especially with the Jenny from the Block era, Alicia met some of the hottest stars of the era and stayed relevant by being seen around company. Tabloids called her sucking the youth out of young talent like they call Madonna now, but she was graceful enough to not steal the spotlight, being more like a fun, kind aunt in the background (unlike *ahem* Madonna).
And who might some of these stars be? Why Alicia Zimmermann met Jlo’s fellow NYer Alicia Keys, that was a laugh. Surprisingly, Alicia Z had a decent voice, and Alicia K had her do some vocals and secretly cut her recording into one of the background vocals in the anthem Unbreakable. Bob plays it all the time, even though he can’t tell which voice is his wife’s, so proud that Alicia “has a record hit heard around the world!”
She was also there for the Pepsi ad launch party. JLo did the (in hindsight questionable) 2005 Pepsi Ad, and therefore had a lovely meeting with David Beckham, which made Bob quite jealous. Because not only did she get to flirt with him, Bob did not, which was a crime against marital equality. She laughed when he complained that night.
Of course, Alicia also met a young Beyonce, and they had a few nice words with each other. They would not cross paths again, but Alicia made sure to stop by House of Dereon to show some support. Tina was there and gave her a discount. Bitty finds out 5 years after he married Jack, when Alicia tries to give her Dereon coat to Suzanne. There was a lot of hand-clutched-over-heart that night.
For their 30th anniversary, Alicia and Bob renewed their wedding vows because Bob is a sap like that, and JLo secretly taught Alicia how to dance over skype and so Alicia surprised Bob with a spicy bachata swish swish and he just keeled over and exploded. JK, he lived, boy did he live. He lived so hard. But this was the only time Alicia danced better than Bob and he was happy to be the fool for once, because after the choreography ended she went back on his toes.
