Love and other drugs (Olicity, post 4x09, PG)

A/N: One of my Olicity Fic Bang stories is closing in on 17k of pain, so I wrote this to cheer myself up. A more …humorous, take on the first time Felicity wakes up after 4x09. Based on a viral video from a while ago.


“She’s still a bit under the effects of the anesthesia, Mr.Queen, so she’ll wake up slowly… she might be confused but she’ll be fine…”

Oliver honestly didn’t hear a word the nurse said. The man kept going on about the effects of the medicine and left a glass of water behind for her to drink, but he was too focused on her face. He was too desperate to see her eyes.

It had been too damn long.

Four days, to be exact. She’d been in surgery for a good five hours after the accident, and they’ve kept her in a constant unconscious state. She’s woken up twice since then, both times in pain and unaware of her surroundings, and they’d put her back under.

His heart still beats double time to the rhythm of fear, the déjà vu of holding a woman he loves more than anything as she bleeds out still too fresh, but she is going to wake up, and she’s going to be fine.

“I’ll be right by the door,” says the nurse, “give you two some space.”

He’s already called Donna to hurry towards the hospital, Diggle is on his way, and Laurel and Thea are right outside. All that’s left is for her to open her beautiful eyes.

Her dark eyelashes flutter, and a small moan leaves her mouth. He’s worried she’s in pain, but takes a cue from the still calm nurse and tries to settle down.

Her eyes open, squinting against the bright light.

“Hey…” he smiles, brushing pieces of hair away from her face. His thumb lingers on her cheek, waiting until her eyes focus on him. He smiles, breathing properly for the first time in days.

An unintelligible sound leaves her lips. She finally turns to him, and his breath catches when her eyes meet his, the vibrant blue capturing him in their hold.

She looks at him for a long moment.

“Did the… hotness doctor send you?” she asks, slurring every word. “’Coz you are eyeee caaandy.”
