Bang

"Let's not go," Mellie told Fitz. "We can change our minds and not go."

"Is it because Olivia's going to be there? She was cleared an hour ago," Fitz responded. Their limo ride to his birthday party had been quiet up until Mellie didn't want to go. "Buck up, you won. Olivia and I aren't together anymore."

He got out of the car and waved to the onlookers standing behind the fence. He took Mellie's hand and pretended to be in a happy marriage with her like he usually did.

Olivia stood just near the entrance when they pulled up. She walked a bit closer towards the car to get to Cyrus. She was about to change her mind and not go to the party. They weren't together, why would Fitz even want her there? All they did lately was fight or be completely silent to each other.

Liv's stomach was in knots. She wasn't sure why though. Something felt off. Fitz looked like the fake happy husband he always played but something was off. Olivia walked over and found Cyrus.

"I think I'm going to go," she told him. "I shouldn't be here."

"Liv, you came with Edison. He won't even know that you are here. Spend the night with me and James. You'll have fun with us," Cyrus said.

"I'm going home, Cy. I don't know why I decided to come in the first place. It's not the right thing for us. We aren't even speaking. I'll see you tomorrow for lunch though." Olivia headed towards the exit but she had to pass by Fitz. She gave a couple extra feet of distance between them as she walked by.

BANG!

One gun shot was fired. Instinctively, Olivia ran over to Fitz and pushed him out of the way towards the limo.

BANG!

She turned to see where Tom and Hal were and where Mellie was. Shoving Fitz to the ground.

BANG!

The third shot fired just as Fitz was being put in the limo and it was driving off. Olivia fell to the ground. Blood splattered near her head.

She looked back and saw two agents covering Mellie. Cyrus was running towards her followed by James and a couple of agents. Liv tried to get up but her body wouldn't let her. She could hear Cyrus yelling for an ambulance but wasn't able to say anything.

"OLIVIA! STAY WITH ME!" Cyrus yelled at her.

Olivia could feel the paramedics putting her on a stretcher but she couldn't will herself to open her eyes. She really only cared about one thing: that Fitz was alive.
