Walking up to her door, he knew that this was going to be tough. Knocking, he was sure that no matter what he needed her back.
Looking out the door Nell who had obviously been crying said, “What do you want, Callen?”
Callen fumbled for where to start, “Uh, well, it’s..I… Can I come in? We need to talk.”
“Look G, I said everything I needed to earlier, so just go,” Nell said defeated.
“You said what you needed to say, but I was hoping you would let me talk. Please,” Callen begged.
“Fine, but don’t just say you’re sorry and expect everything to go back. I know that you think I’m young and you think I’m book smart, not street smart, but I’ve been through firearms training too. I have had to fight like hell my whole life to be taken seriously and the person I trusted the mos-.”
“Nell, let me talk, okay, just let me tell you what was going through my head,” he waited for her nod before continuing, “This was just something I thought I would never do. And this was definitely not how I pictured doing it, but I wanted to show you this,” Callen said pulling a ring box out of his pocket, “and show you the receipt.”
Nell took the box and gasped when she saw a beautiful engagement ring.
“You bought this two months ago? I don’t understand. You were going to propose two months ago? Why didn’t you?” Nell asked still feeling hurt and now shocked.
“No, I had it sized two months ago I bought it after our third date. I didn’t have a plan, I just knew it was what I wanted for us. I knew YOU were what I wanted,” Callen explained, “I didn’t call Hetty because I think that you are not capable of taking care of yourself or because I think you need looking after. I thought that you would take it more seriously from her. Deeks and Sam were missing and I just needed to not have to worry about you, too. I needed to be team leader and not have in the back of my mind that Janvier had figured out what was really the most important thing in the world to me. I respect Deeks and Sam is family, but I don’t think that I could get over losing you. And if Janvier knew that, he would use it. It turns out that my own stupidity lost you anyway, but at least you’re alive. At least I know that even if you don’t forgive me, you can find happiness with someone else.”
“G, I was worried about you too, but you can’t call my boss any time there’s trouble. If we are going to make this work, you have to deal with me and trust that I am a fully capable person and also that I trust you enough to do what you ask when I know that you are worried,” Nell said tears streaking her face.
“I know and I’m so sorry. Nellie, I love you! I don’t know what to do with that. I don’t work well with other people sometimes and I tend to not consult anyone. I just have to learn how to be in a relationship. Can we still be in a relationship?” Callen looked at her hopefully.
“Okay,” Nell conceded.
“Okay?” Callen made it a question.
“Yes, but we aren’t getting engaged right now, I won’t tell my family we got engaged because of our first big fight,” Nell said smiling for the first time that night.
“Sure, but I’m serious when I say I want you for forever. I want us to be a real family, rings and paperwork, all legal.”
