"You’ve been quiet all day, what’s going on?" Oliver asked, they had been working on cleaning up the foundry and figuring out if it can be rebuild. They spent their days trying to get Queen Consolidated back. The hostile takeover, apparently wasn’t 100% above board so there was a chance. At least that was what his lawyers were saying.
Their nights were spent cleaning up things arrow related, He’d sent Diggle home to Lyla an hour ago, Felicity had said bye to him, but not a word since.
Everything was such a mess, Felicity thought as she picked up another broken computer screen before turning to Oliver. “I got a job offer.” She had gotten the call this morning, she had tried to keep it to herself to but now that the words were out. “It’s for head of the IT department at P&S, it’s a law firm up in New York. It would be a great opportunity. They called me this morning out of the blue.” Felicity said unable to stop.
Oliver stood there just staring at her, the only movement was the twitching of his hand. “Maybe you should take it.” He said interrupting her.
Felicity froze at this. “What?” She asked shocked, how could he say that.
"If it’s a good opportunity maybe you should take it." Oliver answered, when Felicity just stared at him he continued. "You would have your own IT department, working for a great law firm will look great on your resume."
"I don’t want to hear any reasons to go." Felicity said her voice strong, but her face gave her insecurities away. Didn’t Oliver want her to stay?
"What do you want to hear?" Oliver asked forcefully, regretting his tone of voice when he saw her flinch for a second.
"Reasons to stay." Felicity almost yelled at him.
"Felicity, after what happened here, the glades, slade’s army. New York is a much safer place." Oliver said frustrated, but he was unsure why.
"How is that a argument to stay?" Felicity asked angry at him for not fighting, for not arguing for her to stay, for not fighting for her.
"It’s not, it’s argument for you to stay safe." Oliver answered her, the frustration even clearer in his voice.
"Look, you might have not meant what you said that night, but I did. I want to stay with you, unsafe." Felicity said yelling at him. "Why are you pushing me to go to New York?"
Why wouldn’t she understand. “Because I meant what I said too.”
