A/N so I know its kinda short and I have not posted a new story in a long time, but please let me know what you think of it and if I should continue it or leave as a one-shot.
Lexie was babysitting Zola for the evening cause Derek and Meredith were going out to celebrate Valentine's Day. She had quickly agreed to babysitting, and since she was currently unattached, it wasn't like she had anything better to do on the one day of the year dedicated to love. And besides Zola was so adorable and Lexie loved spending time with her niece. They had watched a cartoon movie and had something to eat, before Lexie put her down for the night. And that's when she felt her mind wander. And her mind chose to wander to Mark, and more accurately, what she had said to him only a few days ago. "Me too". What had she been thinking? Of course Mark wasn't talking to her, wasn't wanting to be with her, or even thinking about her. Not the way she was constantly thinking about him, and regretting ever breaking up with him, especially over Sophia, who was just as adorable as Zola. He was with Julie now, and that's that. One of the drawbacks to having a photogenic memory was that she couldn't forget anything, like how it felt to be with Mark, how safe she had always felt when he held her close after sex. Or even the sex, which was beyond amazing. It truly was making love, a connection of two souls. And that's what was going through Lexie's mind this Valentine's Day.
Mark was babysitting Sophia because Callie had something really special planned for Valentine's Day. And he had nothing better to do on the day he believed was created by the retail companies to make money off of love. He and Julie were no longer a couple. Ever since Lexie had come up to him and had said "me too", he couldn't stop thinking about her. And he had heard through the hospital's grapevine that Avery and her had broken up. Which, when she said what she did, gave him a little bit of hope. Hope that he still might have a chance. Mark knew that they had been there before, got back together only to have her leave when she found out that Callie was pregnant with his daughter. Not that he would trade Sophia for anything in the world. But he still was in love with Lexie and it wasn't fair to Julie to remain with her. So he broke it off. And she took it better than he thought she would. Hence the babysitting. After he had put Sophia to bed, Mark sat on the couch and started to think about Lexie, and the fact that he wanted to spend this day meant for love with her. And he came up with a plan. He was going to woo her and court her, show her how much he really loved her. But he couldn't do anything about it that evening as Callie and Arizona were spending the night at a hotel. But the very next day he was going to start Operation Courting Lexie.
