ooc: Hey so with this new job, and trying to get in shape for this 5K, I’m going to be taking a break from this account. I’m not going to delete it, but I’m going on a Hiatus, at least until the 5k is over, which is in March. It’s ridiculous working from 11 am to 8 pm, then going to the gym at 10 until 12, then trying to keep up with my Derek and Finn accounts, and then having to get sleep in between there to get up and do it all over again.
I’m so sorry, but I will be back!
Felicity’s breath caught in her throat momentarily as she felt Oliver’s strong hand pull her to his side. Before, the same gesture had been one of comfort when she was freaking out. Here…it seemed out of place. Not unwelcomed, but very much out of place. Oliver could have any girl he wanted. He was Oliver Queen! They were friends sure, but Felicity was barely older than Thea. She had always thought Oliver had seen her as a younger sister. Perhaps this…nope, Felicity had no idea what this was. But she didn’t question it. Instead she let herself sink into him, listening to his heartbeat rather than the movie. She could feel her eyelids flutter, sleep suddenly seeming like an exceptional idea.
Oliver felt her relax into him and he smile a bit as he let out a breath and relaxed even more. He set his head on top of hers, his arm around her still as his fingers brushed over her arm, making random patterns and shapes. He looked down at her and saw her eyelids trying hard to stay up. He chuckled, “If you’re tired, Felicity, why don’t you go to sleep?” He asked quietly. “I don’t mind..especially if you’ve seen this movie a few hundred times,” he smiled. He shifted and slumped down in the couch a little so she could curl up against him a little more and get more comfortable if she wanted.
"No excuse." Felicity teased, settling back onto the couch as the movie started to play. She let her head lean back onto the couch as the opening started, finding Tony Stark in quite a predicament. Because she had seen the movie before, Felicity allowed her mind to wander, becoming focused on Oliver and his movements. The rise and fall of his chest, his breath and heartbeat, all signs that he was in fact there with her and not some Vertigo concocted hallucination. She hoped he’d like the movie…
He laughed as his brows rose to his hairline, “That’s no excuse, huh?” he smiled. He watched as she leaned back and got comfortable, shifting where he sat. He pulled his attention to the movie, watching as it started, his brows low as he concentrated, smiling a bit, enjoying the movie. Half way through he looked over at Felicity again. He’d felt her watching him earlier, but he let it go, and now it was time for him to admire her. His eyes took in the way the light from the TV outlined her beautiful face. A smirk curled at the corners of his lips as he reached over and wrapped his arm around her shoulders, pulling her against his side.
Gotta help my brother fix some pipes that broke at his house because of the weather. Hopefully I’ll be back Friday night at the latest….
Pray the roads arent too bad so I can make it back…
ooc: Off for the night
Felicity sat up straight, giving him a strange look. “You haven’t seen Iron Man yet?” She asked incredulously. “Well, that settles it.” Felicity pushed herself off the couch, making her way to her movie collection stacked up against the wall. She thumbed through the selection looking for the Robert Downey Jr. movie. “The first one is the best, although the third one isn’t bad either. Of course, Captain America is great as well. It’s probably my favorite out of all the Marvel superhero movies, well…if you’re not counting the Avengers because that’s really a collective movie and…” Felicity trailed off, realizing that she’d started rambling. “I mean, it’s OK.” She said nonchalantly.
Oliver smiled when he listened to her start rambling about the movies. He chuckled as he pushed one brow in and lifted the other as he let her go. He shook his head, “I haven’t seen them,” He said to her. “I was on an island for five years, remember?” He asked with another genuine smile. “I haven’t seen a lot of movies. And just ‘okay’ huh?” He asked. “Sure,” he nodded with a chuckle. He shifted a little and cleared his throat, settling back into the couch, “Well…let’s see what the hype is about,” he gestured to the TV.
Felicity chuckled at his persistence. She and Oliver hardly ever hung out outside of work and…their other work. But she’d be lying if she said she didn’t want to. “Um…I don’t know. What sort of thing do you like to do during your free time?” She asked, hoping he wouldn’t ask her the same question. Felicity was a very laid back kind of girl, a night at home with movies and popcorn was how she usually spent Saturday night. Besides, she wanted to know what Oliver Queen, the man, was like. Not the CEO or the Vigilante.
"Sit at home and read," he told her truthfully. "Or I…watch things to catch up with what I’ve missed…Five years is a long time," he chuckled as he rubbed the back of his neck. "Do you know fifty five movies came out in 2008? I think tonight I was gonna watch Iron Man or Cloverfield," he shrugged. "But we can do something else..we can..go out to dinner or…anything."
