Goodbye Jake

Olivia Pope had a thousand thoughts running through her mind as she sat at her desk thinking about the life she had. She'd given up the life that she wanted with the President and was now forced to pay the consequences. For now, she watched Fitz show his fake happiness with his wife as he landed on the South Lawn in front of the White House on the television. She was upset in a way with him. How could he fake his happy life with Mellie so well when he truly wanted to be with her?

"Liv?" Abby pulled her from the darkness of her mind, "the Senator is here when you're ready. Are you okay?"

"I'll be fine. Set up the conference room and we'll talk to them," she instructed before her phone went off. As Abby left, Olivia answered. "What?"

"Let's have dinner tonight," the man told her. "We can go out to the Greek restaurant you like and go from there; what do you say?"

Olivia thought for a moment; she didn't have plans tonight but she didn't want to go out. "Not tonight. I just want to stay home and watch the news."

"If I promise to have you home before ten, will you go?"

"Fine, but not a second past ten."

"Deal, I'll pick you up at seven."

Olivia hung up and continued her day of crisis management. After work she went home and changed into more appropriate clothes for her dinner.

At seven sharp the doorbell rang. "You look good," he said when she answered.

"Thanks, let's go."

The ride over was silent between the two, even as the waiter took their order no words were said to the other.

"I'm kind of surprised you came out with me tonight, Liv."

"I know. I think this is going to be easier in person though. Jake…"

"Don't do that now, Olivia. I know what you're trying to do and I won't let you ruin the dinner. I know things are not great and that you're interested more in him than me but you can't have him. We both know that you will never be with him for real. Fitzgerald Thomas Grant the Third loves being President more than he loves you. He's been proving it for a long time. Even after Mellie told the world he was having an affair, he still went back to her. Don't you see that? He's never going to quit being President. You are always just going to be a side piece of ass to him. Fitz is never going to leave Mellie for you," Jake told her straight.

Olivia sat back in her chair with her arms crossed sending death glares at Jake while he spoke. "I knew this was a bad idea. You don't know the relationship that I have with him. So why don't you…"

"I am just trying to tell you the facts, Liv. Fitz is not…"

"You don't know any facts. You need to just shut up. Quit talking about something you know absolutely nothing about." Olivia stood up putting her coat on. "Do not contact me again."

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time.
