Rick had come home to find Emily upset and had been trying to find out exactly what had happened. Whatever it was, it was obvious that it had hurt her pretty bloody badly.

"I know, but sometimes taking about it can help with that part of things," he pointed out. "If you don't want to, though, I understand."
Emily knew she could tell Rick anything, and while she did want to tell him what happened, there was a part of her that thought she could handle it on her own. They were just words from someone that shouldn't matter.

But the more Rick talked, the more se wanted to tell him.

"I saw Harry today," she said, knowing he would know who she was speaking of. "He was at the hospital for a lecture, and he had quite a few things to say to me."
If Emily told him that she didn't want to tell him, he would have understood. Sometimes, there were just things that you couldn't share, no matter how much you loved someone else.

When she told him, though, that she had run into Harry, he immediately realized where this had to be going. Taking her hand, he led her over to the couch to sit down, and once they were settled, he reached up to brush a strand of hair back from her face.

"And I suppose it goes without saying that absolutely none of them were complimentary," he said softly.

Emily let out a sigh and walked over to the couch with him. She really didn't want to talk about his because some of the things Harry had said were rather cruel. There had been a time when he'd been a decent person, but then they started medical school, and everything was a competition to him.

"No, not really," she quietly said.

She looked down at her hands, and didn't say anything for a moment. Emily had always believed she was supposed to be strong, and being strong was hard at the moment.

"He had to brag about his new wife. He said she was prettier than me, and was more brilliant. Apparently, she's a heart specialist at a private hospital here in London. Then he said he didn't know what he ever saw in me," she said as she bowed her head.

When Emily looked down, Rick felt his throat tighten, knowing before she even spoke again that this had to be bad. She hardly ever let things get to her like this.

And when she told him what Harry had done, he had to bite back several very nasty words. What the fuck?

"Why? Why the bloody hell did he even have to do that? Fucking prick," he growled softly before kissing her temple and resting his head to hers. "He's wrong, you know. No one is more beautiful and brilliant than you. And he was a wanker for saying that to you."

"No, she is. I saw a picture. She's perfect in every way, and even graduated from Oxford when she was fifteen. I don't even compare to that," Emily said.

She knew Rick was trying to be nice, and she loved him for it, but the facts were right there. While Emily knew she was good at being a doctor, she also knew she would never be that good.

"But thanks for trying to make me feel better. It's sweet of you, and I love you for it," she said before she turned her head enough to kiss his cheek. "I think I'm going to nap for a while. Maybe things will look better when I wake up."

Date: 2012-08-04 04:16 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
Rick wanted to say something more to make her feel better. Emily was beautiful and smart, and it didn't matter that she hadn't graduated from Oxford that young. She had done so much else, seen so many brilliant things. And in his mind, he more than compared to that.

However, it was obvious that she wasn't ready to hear that. What Harry had done to her had been awful, and he knew she needed some time, so when she said she was going to nap for a bit, he nodded.

"All right, love," he told her softly, giving her a kiss before she headed off to the bedroom.

For a while, he just sat there, trying to figure out something he could do to make things better for her. There had to be something. Some way he could make her see.

Then suddenly, an idea came to him, and grabbing his keys and wallet, he headed down to the Woolworth's at the end of the block for some supplies.

Date: 2012-08-04 04:46 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
Emily returned Rick's kiss and stood before going to the bedroom. She hated feeling this way, and she knew she would get over it, but she wasn't ready to just yet. What she needed was a little time, and hopefully a little sleep. Her last shift had seemed to last forever.

Once she was in the bedroom, she toed off her shoes and got into the bed. She closed her eyes and dozed for a while but soon found that she really wanted Rick to be there with her so she got up and went out into the living room to find he was gone.

"All right then," she said before she sat down on the couch while wondering where he'd gone off to.

Date: 2012-08-04 03:34 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
After getting several large sheets of white cardboard, some magazines and some markers, Rick went next door to the copy place where he worked for a little bit. He made a phone call, and then with the clerk's help and some suggestions, did everything he wanted.

A little while later, he headed home, and knowing that Emily was probably around awake again, he knocked on the door.

When she answered, he put a finger to his lips and held up the cue cards he had just made for her to read.

After a whole, Emily got off the couch and started to clean up a bit. Of course, their apartment wasn't that dirty, but she needed something to keep herself occupied. If she didn't, then she'd think about all the awful things he'd said. 

She was about to grab the laundry, and do a load, when there was a knock on the door.  When she saw it was Rick, she opened her mouth to say something, but stopped when she read the card in his hair.  

With a perked eyebrow, she looked at him before looking at the cards again. 

Date: 2012-08-04 04:16 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
When Rick saw that Emily wasn't going to say anything for the moment, he took a deep breath and continued to shuffle through his cards, putting down each one once she'd had a chance to read.

He had made that one by having the clerk blow up his favorite picture of her that he carried everywhere with him in his wallet. He then swallowed as he continued to the next two cards.

Image

Image

He still had a few more cards left, but he paused for a moment to see her reaction.

Date: 2012-08-04 04:27 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
As Rick shuffled through the cards, Emily read them. A smile started to spread over her face, despite the crappt day she'd had. When he got to the card with the monkey, she found herself laughing at the picture. She really wanted to say something to him, but remembered she couldn't.

And when he got to the card, saying he thought she was perfect, Emily felt a rush of emotions roll over her. She warned as a blush ran from her cheeks, and up to the tip of her ears. Her eyes filled with tears because knowing that the man she loved thought that about her erased everything Harry had said earlier.

Looking at him, she grinned and tried to convey how much she loved him with her eyes since she couldn't speak.

Date: 2012-08-04 05:16 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
Hearing her laugh did Rick good. At least that meant he had done something right. And when he reached the card telling her that she was perfect, he saw the blush on her cheeks, the grin on her lips, and he wanted to take her into his arms and kiss her, but he still had the last cards to get through.

And he wanted her to see those.

He gave her a wink.

Finally, the stinger:

Emily was finding it hard not to talk, especially since she wanted to tell Rick how wonderful he was.  So she kept her mouth shut, laughing when he held up the card with the London Bridge on it.  And when she saw the card that said he'd had Harry arrested for unpaid parking tickets, she grinned and bounced on the balls of her feet.  

Not caring if he was done or not, Emily stepped forward and captured his lips in a deep, passionate kiss.  Everything she felt at that moment she tried to convey wih it and when she finally pulled back, she looked at him. 

"Am I allowed to talk now, love?" she asked. 

Date: 2012-08-04 11:25 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
When Emily started to bounce, he grinned widely, glad to see that he had obviously cheered her up. However, before he could say anything, he found himself being pulled to her. Dropping the last card, he wrapped his arms around her, returning the kiss.

He could feel everything in that kiss, and it was amazing.

When they parted, he took a deep breath and laughed at her question. "Of course," he said with a nod, reaching up to cup his hand to her cheek. "I just wanted to make sure you read everything first."

Date: 2012-08-05 12:11 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
When they parted, Emily tugged him inside after picking up the cards from the floor. Once he was in, she shut the door and wrapped her arms around his neck so she could be close to him.

"You are the most amazing man I know, Rick. You're even more amazing than my father," she said as she bumped her nose against his. "Thank you for all of that. I love you so much, and I'm never going to let you go."

Leaning up, she softly kissed him. "I would even marry you now, and have all your babies," she murmured.

Date: 2012-08-05 05:28 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
Letting her pull him into the flat, he slid his arms around her again, pulling her close to him as he looked down into her eyes. It did his heart good to see happiness there when he looked into her eyes. And when she called him amazing, he smiled, resting his forehead to hers.

"More amazing than your father?" he asked, knowing how much that meant, considering who her father was. It meant so much to him that she thought that about him. "Good. Because I'm not letting you go either."

When she made the comment about marrying him, his smile turned into a grin. "Then why don't we?" he asked. "Get married, that is?" He then backed up for a moment. "Wait, let me do this right."

Pulling the red marker out of his pocket, he grabbed one of the cards and wrote across the back of one of the cards before holding it up.

"More amazing than my father. But, don't tell him that," Emily said with a laugh.

When he agreed to her idea of getting married, she grinned. She was bout to say something else, but stopped when he wrote on a card.

"Of course, I'll marry you, Rick," she said as she tugged the card out of his hand and tossed it to the side. "I love you."

Leaning up, she captured his lips in a deep kiss. And when they parted, she grinned. "I don't want a big, fancy wedding. I think we should get married in Bath at my parents' house," she said.

Date: 2012-08-05 11:05 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
"I promise I won't," Rick told her, knowing how Nikola could be. "As far as he knows, we still think he's the most amazing."

When she answered his cue card proposal, he grinned widely, letting her take it out of his hand before they kissed again. Married. They were getting married. Of course, he had been sure for a while now that this was where things would be going between them, but still, knowing that it really was going to happen was brilliant.

"You're the best thing to ever happen to me," he told her when they finally pulled apart. And when she told him the kind of wedding she wanted, he nodded. "That sounds perfect."

He didn't want it to be overly fancy either. He much preferred just having the people they cared about there and enjoying the day with them.

"So, should we call your parents and tell them the news?"

Date: 2012-08-05 11:23 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
"Thank you, love. I'm sure my mother will appreciate it too, since she lives with him," Emily said with a laugh.  

Emily had never been the type of girl who pretended to be getting married.  It never interested her as a child, nor as an adult.  None of her relationships before Rick interested her enough to want to marry the person. Yes, she had loved some of them, but it wasn't like what she felt for him. Rick had shown her true love, and she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. 

"Perfect.  And, we should do it this autumn.  Perhaps October?" she suggested. "Or, maybe a Christmastime.  Bath is rather beautiful then."


When he asked his question, she nodded and pulled out her mobile.  She put it on speaker and dialed her mother's number, and waited.  

Date: 2012-08-07 03:09 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
Rick chuckled, knowing that Emily was right. Helen was the one that would have to hear the complaints - and she had already put up with an awful lot from him over the years, he knew from the stories both Emily and she had told him.

At Emily's suggestion that they have the wedding in Autumn or Christmas, he grinned. "Would you mind if I say October?" he asked with a laugh. "I think I'd like to marry you sooner rather than later."

And that was very much the truth.

After Emily pulled out her mobile to call her parents, Rick wrapped his arm around her as the phone rang, and when Helen answered, he grinned widely.

"What's going on, you two?" she asked at the other end of the line.

"We have some news to share with you and Nikola," he said.

"Hold on. Let me get him." There was a few moments pause, and then a click. "All right. What's the news?"

Rick grinned and looked over at Emily, motioning for her to tell them since they were her parents.

Date: 2012-08-07 03:32 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
"October would be lovely," Emily said as she leaned over to softly kiss him.

When her mother answered the phone, she smiled and waited for her to get her father. Once she had, Emily took a deep breath.

"Rick and I are getting married. We want to do it at the house in Bath, and in October," she said as she waited for their reaction.

"Does this mean you're finally pregnant?" her father asked before there was a pause. "Don't look at me like that, Helen."

Emily laughed and shook her head. Her parents were amusing at times.

"No, not pregnant. We just decided we wanted to get married," she said.

Date: 2012-08-08 02:30 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] gonnaprotectem.livejournal.com
When Nikola asked if they were pregnant after Emily told them about their engagement, Rick shook his head, laughing softly as he rested his head to her shoulder. He definitely wasn't going to let up on that, it seemed.

"One thing at a time, love. One thing at a time," Helen told him on their end of the line. "This is wonderful news. We can definitely hot the wedding at the Bath house, and autumn will be absolutely lovely."

"Thank you," Rick said with a grin even though Helen and Nikola couldn't see them. "Figured you would want to know."

"Definitely," Helen said. "We've been wondering how long it would be before you two finally would decided to get married."

That caused Rick to raise his eyebrows. "Who won the wager?"

"John and Sherlock," she told them with a laugh.

Date: 2012-08-08 03:08 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] served4years.livejournal.com
"Thanks, Mum," Emily said with a smile as she leaned her head against Rick's shoulder.

When the conversation turned to there being a bet, and the fact Sherlock had won, she snorted. "Sherlock does owe me some money. I did pay off all the shop owners in this part of London from him bumming cigarettes from their shops. I'll have to collect now," she said.

The caused her father to laugh. "Good luck with that," he said. "And, I'm sure the two of you want to celebrate so we'll speak to you later. Goodbye you two."

Emily said goodbye to her parents and once Rick had, she ended the call. She then tossed her mobile onto the couch before tugging him close for a deep kiss.
