Prompt: Target Practice written for the National Green Arrow Day

Oliver Queen was an excellent marksman. He had perfected his technique for years and every shot he took was his very own bulls eye. So she should have realized when they started their affair months ago that this would be no different.

Chloe should have known this would happen. She should have expected it. He caught her eyes and grinned as he pulled the string on his bow back and let another shot fly landing hard in the center of the target. She rolled her eyes at him and glanced back at her computer continuing to type.

He’d shown up an hour or so ago and decided to hang out and relax while she was working. Out of the corner of her eye the archery stand caught her gaze and she smiled briefly. It was hard to believe this all started with target practice.

But it hadn’t stopped there. This whole time she thought they were on the same page, but when things starting changing, afternoon quickies turning into lunch dates, late night lovemaking turning into cuddling and sleepovers it had been time to reevaluate things.

When she went to him feelings bubbling to the surface he hadn’t been the least bit shocked. Oliver had smiled, nodded and suggested maybe it was time they turned their arrangement into a relationship.

Chloe however, had been startled. More by the fact that this didn’t seem out of the blue to him at all yet there she was trying to play catch up. And that’s when she realized that for Oliver it had never been some random arrangement.

Ever since they’d delved into the water of being lovers he’d been casually and discreetly moving them in the direction of a relationship. Taking his time to learn her, perfecting the art of working with and around her boundaries until he’d perfected his technique.

He’d captured her heart in much the same way he buried the head of an arrow into its target, with precision, letting go at exactly the right moment. His voice knocked her from her thoughts.

“I was thinking we should check out that knew Italian place tonight. What do you think?”

She smiled up at him.

“Sounds like a plan. I’m almost done.”

He nodded and went back to shooting his arrows. She let out a sigh as she closed out the program she was working in before shutting down the computer. Oliver Queen was an excellent marksman. Every shot he took was his very own bulls eye, including Chloe Sullivan’s heart.
