Summary: Just a short & sweet one-shot in which Arizona comes home from a long day at work to a lovely, caring Callie.
Author's note: I've been writing little stories for years and have dabbled a little in writing Callie & Arizona fanfic but have never gone as far as posting it. I'm a little nervous but also excited. The only people who has really ever read my writing are teachers and recently my girlfriend. It will be fun to see what other's think.
I know it's really short but I figure this is a good start and I can go a little bit longer with my next. I hope you enjoy it.
Arizona's point of view.

When my shift finally ends I am more than ready to go home. It’s been an exhausting day and all I want is to change out of these stupid scrubs and retire to a nice evening with my girl. I’m grateful to see that the locker room is empty as I change quickly and exit the hospital without the hassle of saying goodbyes and turning down offers to go for drinks. I’m not in a very social mood. A quiet night of food, wine, love and sleep is all I'm really up for. Is that so much to ask?

I walk across the hospital parking lot and wait at the side of the street for a few cars to go by before dashing across and up to the front doors of our apartment building. Pulling my keys out of my jacket pocket, I unlock the door making sure it closes behind me, before heading up the stairs to our floor. As I walk along the hall to our apartment I hope Callie is in the same mindset as me, and not wanting to go out or anything. When I enter our home a beautifully unexpected sight has my hopes confirmed.

Tea lights dot the floor casting a dim flickering light on the room and I can hear music playing softly in the background. A huge smile graces my face, I have the greatest girlfriend in the entire world. I know I am in for a really nice night as I slip off my shoes and jacket, hanging it in the closet by the door. I take a moment to rake my fingers through my long blond hair, looking in the large mirror on the wall, before following the path she’s set for me.

Reaching the bathroom door I can’t help but grin at the sight before my eyes. The flames of various candles also have this room aglow and their flickering light gives the view of my Calliope relaxing in the large white tub an even more sensual impression. An amazing amount of bubbles cover the surface of the water and she looks to my smiling face.

“Care to join me?” she asks softly giving me a sweet smile. I just nod and disrobe slowly, aware that I am giving her a little show. I pull my shirt up over my head and then unbutton my pants. Steam rising up around her, she watches me from the warm water of the bath I cannot wait to join her in. I shimmy my jeans down my legs and step out of them and I can see the glint of anticipation in her eyes, she’s waiting for me to take my light blue bra and panties off.

Reaching behind my back, I unclasp my bra and then slowly move the straps off my shoulders and down my arms before finally dropping it onto the small pile of clothes on the floor and baring my breasts to her. Her face lights up even more and I love the fact that she’s seen me naked a million times but still finds it exciting to watch me undress. I walk a little closer to the side of the tub and then reach down to pull the last article of clothing off my body. I keep my eyes on her as I slide my panties down my toned legs and watch as her eyes follow their decent.

“Like what you see?” I ask, laughing lightly when she returns her gaze to my face.

“Oh yeah, but I’m done looking for now. It’s time for you to get in,” she says in a low voice, using a soap-laced hand to motion me towards her. I agree and I step into the bath and lower my tired body into the hot water. It feels so good to lean against her and her arms circle around me.

“How was your day?” she asks, running her hand up and down my arm.

“Long,” I groan. “But better now,” I say twisting slightly to look at her. I lean in and kiss her full lips gently before turning back and letting myself just melt into the heat of the water and the softness of her touch.

“I thought you might need something to help you relax tonight. You really didn’t seem to want to go to work this morning so I knew no matter what it would be a long day for you.” Callie scoops up some water and pours it down my left arm and then does the same with the other.

“You mean this wasn’t just a ploy to get me wet and naked?” I ask jokingly.

“Well maybe a little,” she whispers in my ear and runs her fingertips over my tummy under the water and I shiver slightly at her playful contact. “But for now I just want to help you relax. Lean forward,” she says gently. I do as she asks and lean forward a little resting my arms on my bent legs and my chin on my knees. Her strong hands rub circles across my back, from time to time dipping down to scoop up hot water to let run down my spine.

“That feels so good baby,” I say feeling the stress of the day completely liquefy and roll away. She places a kiss at the top of my back and a few more across my shoulders before continuing the firm dreamy circles and patterns across my back. I close my eyes and just sigh in delight. This amazing woman behind me takes care of me, and loves me, and makes me feel safe. This is the person I see with me when I look to the future. I found my ‘one’. How many people get to say that!

As if she can read my mind, and sometimes I think she might actually be able to, she asks me what I’m thinking about. As her wonderful hands massage my tired shoulders I speak into my knees, “just about how much I love you.” I can feel her smile and she pulls me back against her and wraps her arms around me, whispering into my ear that she loves me too.

This woman is heaven.

We let ourselves unwind together listening to the soft music play, my fingers laced between hers, our hands resting on my stomach. She places soft kisses on my skin from time to time and when she does I give her hand a squeeze. These little things that we do almost unconsciously warm my heart.

It’s only when the CD ends and the water starts to cool off that I hear her whisper to me and I open my closed eyes, the blissed out smile still on my lips.

“As awesome as this is, I’m thinking it might be time to get out soon,” she says lightly and as if on cue my stomach grumbles reminding me I haven’t eaten since lunch time and it’s well past seven now.

“Maybe some food and some wine?” she asks with a laugh, helping me out of the tub and wrapping me in one of our big fluffy towels before pulling the plug and letting the water drain.

“What have I done to deserve all this?” I ask her as she wraps herself up in a towel.

“Nothing… Everything…” she says and kisses me tenderly on the lips. “You don’t have to do anything to deserve my love, it’s unconditionally yours.” Before she can pull away I bring my hand up to her cheek and kiss her deeply.

“You are an awesome girlfriend. Have I told you lately how lucky I feel to have you?” I say when I let her go.

“What makes you think you can have me?” Callie asks smirking at me.

“Yeah yeah yeah,” I say giving her a teasing little shove and lead her out of the bathroom and into the bedroom where we dry off and pull on comfy shirts and sleep pants. She’s wearing one of my old college tee shirts and she looks really sexy, her long wet black curls pulled over one shoulder. I love that I can be so attracted to her all dolled up and super casual, and even more I love that I’m the one that gets to see her all relaxed and comfortable like this.

I take Calliope in my arms again and kiss her deeply before pulling her against me and just standing there, letting all my love for her radiate between us. She is the woman who takes care of me, and loves me, and makes me feel safe. She is the person I see with me when I look to the future. She is my dream.

What an excellent first fic. I was nervous too when I posted my own, so I'm glad you were brave enough to post it. It was just lovely. Callie setting up the atmosphere and relaxing Arizona. It was really nice to read a fluff piece where they were completely connected. Awesome job!

Thanks for your comment. The feedback I've gotten so far is lovely. I feel a lot less nervous now.
I wrote this a little while ago and wasn't ready to post it but with the current storyline we all need as much love and fluff as we can get!
Thanks again for your comforting comment. ♥

Okay, I'd just like to go on record and say that in most cases I prefer fanfic Callie to Shondaland Callie. Overall she's just more considerate and less whiny. Take note Shonda! Excellent job!
Apr. 21st, 2011 04:38 am (UTC)
I seriously think we should all take over and do a Callie/Arizona spin-off. On like Showtime where sexy time will actually happen!!! lol
Thanks for the compliment. ♥

I am so glad I had the guts to post because I love writing and I write for that reason but I always doubt myself and feel like the stories I spin are utter crap. Even if I actually like them! ... I still judge them. But now that I've posted I feel way better about writing. I'm a pretty confident person but I guess I just needed that little boost. All you guys have made me feel very safe and at home and welcome. It means a lot.
Plus this journey has made me remember that I write because I love it! not because I need recognition or to be amazing or anything. That's a bonus of course, when you're appreciated and when you write something you feel is really good.
So I am next time not going to worry so much, I'm going to post because I want to. I'm going to post because it makes me feel good when I read other peoples stories and if one person feels good from mine I've accomplished something. Plus everyone on here is so nice. If it's not their thing they will just move on. Way less judgmental than peers in school.
Wow I've just rambled at you. Sorry, I talk a lot... :P A gemini and a writer, it makes an interesting mix. ;)
Anyways! Thanks so much for the compliments and the reassurance that everyone feels nervous the first time they share their story.
I'm pretty busy right now but I hope to write something, even if it's just something short and sweet again, soon. Check back.
Thanks again. ♥

"One of my great friends from under grad who is a writer once said, "You are a writer if you write something daily. If the thoughts in your head don't seem real unless you write them down on paper you are a writer." After he said those words I knew I wasn't a writer. Lol"

I somewhat disagree with this. I feel that you can be a writer even if you write nothing down on paper.
For me, I know I'm a writer. I feel it inside of me. I may need to work on my skills like any artist but mostly I feel I'm a writer for the way I think and the way I speak and the way I write. Not just the last.
I think there are all kinds of writers. I think that if someone writes one story they feel proud of and never writes again they can call themselves a writer if that's how they feel.
I'm in no way a professional, and I no longer dream of ever becoming one, but I am a writer. And I know this for myself without having to write every day or write everything down. It's just part of who I am. It's in my blood.
If you feel like you aren't a writer but like to write that's also awesome. I feel that they can go hand in hand or separate. That's the wonderful thing about art. Everyone feels it differently.

You don't have to be a writer in your eyes... But I think I, and others, see you as one. ♥
Though of course this could b just because this is the only side we see of you. :)

What interested you about medicine as a kid? Are you following a medical career path?

"Just remember that your goal is to try to reach your level only. Never worry about everyone else and you'll be just fine."

I love this. I think I'm going to copy this down and read it when I start to forget. ♥

ps. there I went again. see. big talker. ;) My girlfriend has definitely told me I talk a lot too. I write her these rambly good morning texts on the days I go off to work and she always laughs at my craziness. I think the best people in life are those who are comfortable with rambling and they are usually ramblers themselves. :P

*sighs* yeah, totally right. I felt relaxed just reading this. I like your Callie, she's so thoughtful <3

The girls are easy for me to write in scenes like this because this is what I'm like. I'm a hopeless romantic and proud to be one.
