Chapter 51: Milestone



When the movie credits start to roll, Meredith Grey moves her hands comfortingly over her girlfriend Addison Montgomery's shoulders to let her know that the scary parts are all over now.

"It's okay, Addison. The chainsaws are gone, you can't see them anymore," Meredith coos.

"Thank you, Meredith," Addison gathers the courage to open her eyes and look up again.

Meredith nuzzles Addison into her again, as the redhead recovers from the adrenaline rush, and Meredith offers her the rest of the remaining movie snacks.

Addison nods at her, and inhales all of them quickly.

"Hungry Spice?" Meredith teases.

"You have no idea, Sugar," Addison gulps down the rest of the vitamin water.

"Guess all the fear gives you the munchies?" Meredith giggles, as Addison finishes off the last of the popcorn.

It was still a good experience for both of them, though, and after Addison's had her fill, she brings Meredith's arms back around her until the movie credits have finished rolling.

"You okay, Spice?" Meredith coos, as Addison whimpers exaggeratedly.

"No more chainsaws?" Addison asks before opening up her eyes.

"No more chainsaws," says Meredith reassuringly.

"Great," Addison says, as she looks up at Meredith. Meredith's eyes are twinkling under the theater lights, and Addition feels as though she's falling deeper and deeper in love with her girlfriend.

Addison wants to say something, something meaningful, like "I want to spend the rest of my life with you," but she knows it's too early, so she doesn't, and instead she simply says, "Sugar, will you take me home?" ever so softly.

"Of course, Spice," Meredith soothes over her hair. "I can't wait," she smiles.

And then, Izzie and Cristina finally have to burst them out of their bubble.

"COME ON," they say to Meredith and Addison.

"Alright!" Addison says, as she gets up and brushes the popcorn off of her clothes, heading out of the theater.

Addison and Meredith walk out hand-in-hand, as do Izzie and Cristina.

"So who has the house, and who has the apartment tonight?" Meredith asks them.

"Izzie?" Cristina asks her, knowing her girlfriend will beam at the attention.

"Well, according to my sticker chart…" Izzie smiles. "It's Addison and Meredith's turn in the apartment, and we have the house," she offers.

"And George and Alex?" Addison asks them.

"Still camping," Cristina says.

"What is it with the boys and the woods," Meredith laughs.

"Who knows," says Addison.

And they all laugh together as they drive home.




In the woods, Joe, Walter, Burke, and Richard, have an excellent hike, and then a campfire, which Mark and Derek, and Alex and George join them for.

They all swear to each other they won't tell the girls how much they love singing together.

Not that it's something to be embarrassed about, but they do like to have something special from this camping experience that's just for them.




Callie and Bailey go out to the mall together and go shopping, and just enjoy their rare free time off together as residents.

They talk about how nice it is to leave the hospital and take a break from being surgeons, and how grateful they are that the interns are now getting along now.

And with the Attendings, for the most part, as well.




Addison can't help but start feeling a bit frisky after her girlfriend comforted her through the scary movie. "Sugar…" Addison whispers into Meredith's ear as she strokes her hand over her hip.

Meredith smirks at the contact, and leans in a little bit closer.

"We're almost home, love," Meredith offers, and Addison sighs contentedly.

They are almost home, and Cristina and Izzie drop them off at the apartment before heading out to the house. They leave dinner for Meredith and Addison, knowing that Meredith can't cook at all, and Addison probably won't want to, two nights in a row, while Izzie will.

"See you later," Cristina winks at her friend, and Izzie giggles as she closes the door.

Meredith and Addison can hear them laughing all the way out.



"Now…" Meredith says seductively. "Will you show me to your bedroom, Dr. Montgomery?" she says sweetly, and Addison bites her lip.

"Yes…" Addison husks, her willpower dissolving, taking Meredith by the hand, and leading Meredith to her bed.

They arrive there in a crash, with Addison landing on top of Meredith, then backing off worrying that she's crushing her.

"Hey, where'd you go?" Meredith whines in protest.

"I didn't want to squish you," Addison admits.

"That's sweet of you, Spice, but I promise I can handle it," Meredith says as she pulls Addison back on top of her.

"Are you sure?" Addison asks tenderly.

"Yes," says Meredith. "I like to feel you," says Meredith.

"Ok," says Addison. "I like to feel you too, Spice."

Addison sinks herself back on top of Meredith now, while Meredith gets herself comfortable on the bed with a pillow under her head.

"You feel so good under me. You make me feel good, Sugar," Addison murmurs.

"Good, I want you to feel good. You can use me to feel good, Spice. You make me feel good," Meredith speaks.

Addison moans at this, unable to resist grinding into her girlfriend, hungry for her more than ever before.

"Yes, yes," Meredith responds, encouraging Addison to keep going and going.

"When I keep grinding on you, I keep feeling good," Addison responds.

"Yes, keep teasing yourself for me, you're giving me good pressure into your bed," Meredith whispers.

"Oh, wow, that's good," Addison says as she speeds up her hips.

"Yes, yes, Addison, I need you," Meredith groans.

Addison holds onto Meredith's hips as she breathes heavily into Meredith's ear. Her lips touch Meredith's neck, and she kisses all of the spots she knows her girlfriend likes.

"Oh, gosh," Meredith swears, and Addison swells with pride that she's the one pleasing her partner.

They move in sync until they reach the brink, and cross it together, and lie together cuddled up.

They sit together, satisfied, and happy for a little while, until they open their eyes.



"You know what happens at midnight tonight, Spice?" Meredith asks sweetly.

"What?" Addison furrows her brow, worried she's forgetting something.

"We get to cross another one of our milestones," Meredith whispers.

"Oh, right. It's tomorrow, so I guess that midnight…" Addison licks her lips in response.

"Yes," says Meredith.

"Yes," Addison agrees.

"So… It's only ten now though. It's in two hours, what would you like to do while we wait?" Meredith asks her.

"Ah, if it's alright with you, could we have a nap? I'm kinda sleepy," says Addison, yawning.

"Absolutely," says Meredith. "C'mere," she offers, and settles Addison into her chest.

They've had a few sleepovers recently, mostly in Addison's hotel, and it feels good for them to get to spend time with each other at Addison's new home.

"Wake me when I get to touch you more?" Addison asks as she drifts off to sleep.





Cristina takes a bath as Izzie lights candles for them, bringing her girlfriend a plate of chocolates and strawberries and climbs in with her.




As Mark shivers in his tent at night, Derek watches him silently until Mark crawls over to him.




The clock strikes midnight, and Meredith wakes up and shuts off the alarm, but she can't bear to wake Addison yet.

The redhead looks so content she just cares to watch her sleep soundly, and curls up with her again.

There'll be lots more time to explore in the morning.




Shannon Sparks and her partner Felix Smallwood watch a fashion show that Callie and Bailey put off with all of their fancy new clothing.



When the morning comes again, Meredith and Addison wake up smiling, and Addison kisses Meredith for all that she's worth, showing her girlfriend how much she matters to her.

When Meredith finally brings Addison's hand to her chest, and Addison's eyes open in wonder, Meredith smiles, and leans in to kiss Addison again.

"Good morning, Spice," Meredith smiles, "happy milestone day."
