You came (1/1)

TITLE: You came (1/1)

AUTHOR: sapphicwarrior

PAIRING: Callie/Erica of course

SUMMARY: Callie remembers getting ready for her first date with Erica.

AUTHOR’S NOTE 1: This is unbeta’d so all mistakes are mine.

AUHTOR’S NOTE 2: I was listening to the radio this morning and heard this song by Kim Wilde “You came”.  My mind immediately drifted towards Callie and Erica and this is the result. Hope you like it.

AUTHOR’S NOTE 3: All the bad things of Season 5 didn’t happen here in this fic: no freaking out, no running to Mark, no leaving Erica alone after her leaves speech.

I can’t believe we’ve come this far. As I lay here next to you, my mind goes back in time, to the day I got ready for my first date ever with a woman, my first date with you.



I’ve turned on the radio to get ready for my date with Erica. I turn on the shower and get in.  I’m really going to take some extra time to get ready today.   I want to look at my best for Erica.


I’m so nervous.  I feel like a teenager again who gets ready for their first date ever.  Guess I am a bit like that teenager, as this is my first date ever with a woman. I don’t know why it makes me more nervous then a date with a man. Maybe it is because I’m absolutely drawn towards Erica and there is nothing I can do about it. I’ve never felt anything like this before. I think that for the first time in my life I’m actually falling in love with someone, a woman nonetheless.


After a while I get out of the shower and dry myself.  The mirror is fogged because I probably used up all the hot water. Cristina is going to kill me when she gets home and finds out all the hot water is gone. I clean the mirror with my towel so I can see myself again.   Suddenly I hear a song on the radio I know from my teenage years. I turn up the volume and sing along.


Someone I know is staring at me
And when I look into her eyes
I see a girl that I used to be
I hardly recognise

Cos in the space of a year
I've watched the old me disappear
All of the things I once held precious
Just don't mean anything anymore
Cos suddenly

What Kim Wilde is singing couldn’t be more true. I don’t recognize me anymore.  I’ve changed so much this past year. One year ago, I was pining away over George.  I was miserable and lonely.  I had no one to talk to.  My own husband preferred the company of his blonde bimbo friend Stevens and I didn’t fit in in their group.  Not that I wanted to fit in anyway, but it would have been nice if George had at least took the time to listen to me sometimes.  But then she came, the new Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Dr. Erica Hahn and now I’m getting ready to go out with her.

You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place

For the first time in ever someone really took an interest in me and genuinely cared about me.  Before I knew it, we became friends. You told me you were socially awkward and didn’t make friends easily and I told you I was the same, but somehow we connected. We connected without realizing it.  Soon you were the person I shared my lunches with and who I brought coffee for in the morning, the person I spent every free evening with at your place or mine.  One day you even came to sunrise yoga with me.  Looking back on that moment, I think it’s then I fell for you.

I've never felt good with permanent things
Now I don't want anything to change
You can't imagine the joy you bring
My life won't be the same
And I'll be there when you call
I'll pick you up if you should fall
Cos I have never felt such inspiration
Nobody else ever gave me more because

You are so different from the Dr. Hahn everyone knows. I feel privileged that you let me see behind your professional mask.  The more I saw of Erica, the more I fell for you.  You are nothing like Dr. Hahn. I can’t understand that no one sees that it’s just a mask, that you’re not cold and arrogant and bitchy.  I never thought of you as that, even when I only knew you as Dr. Hahn. No, I knew that behind that mask was a compassionate woman. And I was right.


I go to my closet and try to pick out an outfit for this evening. I really hope we kiss again. Ever since the kiss in the parking lot we haven’t kissed again.  I want to feel your lips on mine again. They were so soft. And when you caressed my face with your hand, the butterflies in my stomach did multiple flip flops and went crazy.  If only a kiss makes me feel that way, I wonder what sex feels like with you. That brings a flush to my face.  We haven’t even been on a date yet and already I’m thinking about having sex with you.  These last weeks have been torture.  First we ignored each other as we didn’t know how to handle this new development, but then we agreed to be scared together. Best decision ever.  And then the flirting started, the innocent touches and looks when no one was watching. Each day I went home feeling more sexually frustrated then ever. Mark saw it and volunteered to take the frustration away, but I declined. The only one I want to take the frustration away is you and definitely not him. I wonder if the same rules about no sex on a first date apply too when you are dating a woman.  I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold my hands to myself this evening.


You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place



Our first date went great. It was awkward at first, but then we fell back on our friendship and talked about everything and nothing. The only thing that was different was that I was allowed to touch you and kiss you when I wanted.  I didn’t have to hide anymore and neither did you.  We didn’t have sex on that first date, but we kissed a lot. My lips were bruised for days afterwards, but it was well worth it. 


It was difficult hiding at work because now that I got a taste of you, I was quickly becoming addicted and I couldn’t go one hour without your kisses. It took me some time to convince you, but after two days of feeling frustrated too you agreed to on-call meetings to kiss. Whenever our need got too big, we hid in the on-call room on the fifth floor, away from everyone and we kissed.  We were like horny teenagers, only thinking about kissing and making out.


After one week of this and almost being caught twice, something had to be done about my sexual frustration.  So that night after our date, I ripped your clothes off and made you scream my name in ecstasy.  The morning after, you told me you were extremely gay and I smiled at you and held you while you cried.


That was one week ago.  I spent every night at your place since then.  I think Cristina is up to something, but I don’t care and neither do you, so you told me.


As I watch you sleep, I remember the last part of that song of Kim Wilde I heard while getting ready for our first date.

I watch you sleep in the still of the night
You look so pretty when you dream
So many people just go through life
Holding back, they don't say what they mean
But it's easy for me
Since you came
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place


You definitely turned my life around, but in a good way.  I know that even though we only began dating, that you are “it” for me, you are “the one”. And the fact that you are a woman doesn’t scare me at all. You only get a chance for a love like this once in a lifetime and I’m grabbing it with two hands.  I snuggle closer to you and I feel you shifting. You lay your arm around my waist and I lay my head in the crook of your shoulder. I inhale your unique scent and before drifting of to sleep, I whisper: “Te quiero para siempre mí hermosa.” (I love you forever my beautiful)

excellent love story
I loved how you weaved the song into the story as the narrator. Much more realistic story than we saw play out on tv. I always look forward to your stories, thanks.

Very hot!! Love that Callie turned down Mark's offer to get rid of her sexual frustration, that she only wanted Erica. Making out like teenagers is so adorable. I wish we had seen more of that on the show, that fun, innocent, newly in-love stage. This story made me so happy--thank you so much!

it would have been great if we could have seen the newly in-love stage on the show, instead of all the freaking out we saw. Glad you liked it.
