Wow! Things are happening really fast on our show. They get back together, have to go public to the world, and now this week, there is a wedding? Well there is stilll a lot of questions that people want answered and a lot of inconsistencies. I want to see Olitz happy and a baby on the way. Some people are speculating that Kerry is indeed pregnant which accounts for the rapid season. Right now they are shooting the Winter finale and it will be Christmas for the first time for the show. But we should just feel the Olitz right now and enjoy .
The cameras had been set up as the make up person put the finishing touches on Mellie. Another assistant was taking the shine off of the President as he looked over his notes. Abby was leaning over him giving him some final notations from her own folder. Olivia stood on the sidelines looking on nervously as she did so many times before. This time she knew that her time in the shadows was slowly coming to an end. This all didn't seem real, she was watching as Mellie and Fitz were telling the nation that the were caling it quits.
"Mrs. Grant, Mr. President, we are going to be going live in about ten minutes." The PA announced as she took her hand and placed it on the headset. "Ready camera two."
Olivia anxiously twirled the ring on her finger as she stood by. Sensing her nervousness, Fitz called her over and then he took her hand. Her brown eyes met his smoky blue ones and he spoke softly as to ease her mind. "Livvie, don't be afraid. This is good. We are moving on and the nation will notice it. They will be more able to accept us now. I just want you to know that I love you so much and there isn't anything I wouldn't do for you. Our day is coming." He took her hand and caressed it with his own.
Kimberly Mitchell breezed onto the set and took a lavelier mike and had her own assistant hook it up as the make up person brushed her cheek with some blush. "Okay, people we will be going live very soon. " she announced. "I just want to say thank you , Mr President, Ma'am , for allowing me to be the one person that you trust enough to give this exclusive . Senator, we of course, are going to want a follow up as you begin your new job."
Mellie , always the polite one smiled and said, "Of course, Kimberly, I couldn't think of anyone but you ."
Fitz had Olivia lean down as he brushed his lips on her cheek. "We're in this together." He whispered in his deep barritone voice. His hand rested in hers.
"We're in this together." She echoed as she backed away to the shadows.
The director yelled. "We're on in 5-4-3-2- and then pointed at Kimberly. "1"
Kimberly straightened up and looked directly into the camera. "Good evening, tonight we have a rare interview with the First Couple. It has been a year since the death of their son and it has been a rough one for the Grant despite their loss, both President and Mrs. Grant have led this nation and Mrs Grant is now embarking on her own political career as the recently elected junior Senator from Virgina. It seems that both are moving on as it was announced earlier this week that the couple will be making history. President and Mrs Grant will go down in history as the first sitting president to get a divorce while he is still in office. Both of them have agreed to meet with me and talk about what urged them to make such a monumental , Mr President, thank you and welcome." Kimberly turned to the couple.
"Thank you Kimberly, this has been a difficult time for both of us. It is always hard to end one chapter of your life and start another." Mellie started to tear up. Fitz could only look at her and shake his head. If there was any body who could play the camera,it was her. "I am so sad that after all of the wonderful years that we have been together, I mean I thought that this guy and I would grow old together. We have so many treasured memories of this long road . I am excited for the new adventure that I am setting out on, but sad for the old one ending."
Kimberly leaned in and patted Mellie's knee in sympathy. "And what made you come to this decision?"
Fitz knew this was his cue."After Jerry's death, we had gone into counseling . We had also met with our pastor following some trouble we were having . I realize that every couple goes through trials and tribulations and someof them make it through and others don't. Unfortunately as much as we tried, we just couldn't get back to the place we were at before his death. We also realised that his death masked even deeper problems in our marriage. There is even more pressure when you lead the kind of high pressure life that we have had in the public eye. I have the problems of the world every day that I have to deal with and I guess I just decided that we weren't working anymore. "
Mellie picked it up from there. "People who have been together for years sometimes have a tendency to grow apart. They realise that there is more to life then what they have. I have enjoyed being the first lady of the great state of California and this nation, but it is my time to shine now. I plan to serve the people of Virginia as I begin my own journey. If it leads me back to the White House, then so be it. I believe that a woman can do anything she sets her mind to ."
"So at this point in time, are there any prospects ? Is there any one for either of you waiting in the wings?" Kimberly had done her homework and knew that the President had previous daliances. She wondered if there was any truth to the rumors about him and Olivia Pope?
"I just want to concentrate on my revived career. " Mellie wanted no disclosure of her relationship with Andrew.
"How about you , Mr President.?" Kimberlyasked. Fitz thought very carefully about his answer. He did have someone waiting in the wings literally. But even though Cyrus was gone, he had to think like him and how he was going to eventually bring him and Olivia out into the light.
"I have a country to run . I have no time for socializing. If I did, I would probably find a woman who reminds me of Mellie. She would have to be brilliant, loyal, and be the kind of woman that I would want to think about spending some time with. I am not at the present time, but that could change." Fitz looked over to Olivia with his loving eyes.
Mellie couldn't stand to hear the dribble. She knew the truth and couldn't understand what he saw in her. She had given him the best years of her life, even had kids for him. She had kept his secrets and defended him . Now she was being replaced and there was nothing she could do.
"I give you both the props to have the courage to talk to me I am sure this was not an easy decision to make . Now the nation can watch as both of you move on with your lives." Kimberly knew she needed to wrap things up.
"As I said the other day , I am not going to let this development defer my being President and finishing the job that I was elected to do. I will continue to serve the people . I know that Mellie will do a great job as our newest Senator and I stand behind her one hundred per cent. I ask the American People to continue to pray for our family as we set out to take our new roles. The work is still there to do and I intend to accomplish it before my term is over."
Turning to the camera, Kimberly addressed the audience. "There you have it. An end of a marriage and a new beginning for two people. This night will definitely be a night to be remembered. History was made and a union was ended. This is Kimberly Mitchell saying Good Night America." The lights went out as the camera was turned off.
"Mellie let me know when you want to do the whole Day in the Life of a Senator bit." Kimberly said as she gathered up her notes and got ready to leave. "I'm also going to want an update on your life after the divorce, Sir." She said to Fitz.
"I will have you talk with Abby." He said. He knew where he had to go. "Excuse me Kimberly, I have something to take care of." Fitz looked over to see if Olivia was still there . His face sunk as he realised that she was gone. He knew that she was scared and that she might have done what she always did and that was run. He was having that sinking feeling until Abby came over and gave him a note. He took it and then smiled as he read it.
He eagerly climbed into the elevator and headed toward his bedroom. As he opened the door, the familiar strains of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On." playing on an ancient turntable.

Listening to the soulful voice, he moved closer to the bed and saw the many candles that had carefully been lit and ablaze. He also looked over and saw the most beautiful sight he had ever seen. Olivia was kneeling on the bed wearing a lavender teddy and lace panties. She saw him and then motioned for him to come over. He was weak to her powers and she took his tie into her manicured hands . She pulled him towards her and then she began to kiss him. Gradually their tongues caressed each other as the kiss he moved closer, she pushed the unbuttoned shirt off of his body and began to run her nails over his well defined mouths were mashed together in passion. He laid down on top of her and she wrapped her legs around his waist. She could feel his erection poking her in the stomach as he made his way toward her opening. By shifting his weight, he moved his hips and slowly guided his penis into her. She gritted her teeth as she once again experienced his girth. For all of the times in the past year she was with Jake or Russell, she held this memory in her mind. She remembered all the times they were together. There was only one man who could move her to ectasy better than any drug and it was this one.
He moved his mouth down her body. She threw her head back and moaned. He kissed his way from her neck , making sure to touch every part of her. Tossing her hair aside, he found the swollen nipples on her breast. He tenderly took one into his mouth and ever so slightly, nibbled on one. She closed her eyes and cherished the moved with every breath she sighed.
Moving the silky folds aside, he took his finger and pushed it into her folds. He guided every move only togive her pleasure. And then he was done …
"Now all we have do to is wait." Fitz said as he pushed her hair from her face and kissed her on the cheek.
She was looking at the feed on the monitor. The corners on her mouth showed that she was satisfied. First she had gotten rid of Cyrus, now she had succeeded in getting rid of Mellie, and now there was only one more card to play. It was a face card and the card was a King of Hearts. She would restore the Union if she could do this, she needed to finish the job. She took the tape from the player and then labeled it.
Now she needed to get this to Sally. She would know what to do with it. They thought they could just stand there and embrace. No one would ever know. But there are cameras everywhere.
They turned away from each other when they heard the television . It was Sally's voice.
"Well while the cat's away , the mice will play." She cooed. "The ink on the divorce papers hasn't even dried yet and President Grant is already getting comfort. He seems to be getting it from his dear friend, Olivia Pope. She has been seen going into the White House and leaving it at all hours of the day and night."
When they saw the picture. They saw themselves in an embrace. Now the secret was out.
