A/N: This is a Jack / Alexx story told from Jack McCoy's POV.
I turn away to hide my smile at the bit of conversation I just overheard as
I walk through the courthouse. Two defense lawyers discussing on of the
ASA. One had just lost to Alexx, and the other I believe lost to her a few
weeks ago. They called her "Ice Queen". If only they knew. But I'm glad
they don't. I glad that I'm one of the privileged few to know how warm, and
passionate, Alexx can be. She certainly has the cool, blonde beauty of an
Ice Queen, I'll have to give them that.
After losing Claire I never expected to love again. Then I met Alexx. Abbey
introduced us, and the three of us went to have drinks that evening. Abbey
ended up leaving early and Alexx and I stayed talking until late. She said
she'd enjoyed the evening and I asked if we could see each other again. She
said yes. We've been dating ever since. It's been . . . 3 months. Feels
like it's been longer. I think Abbey knows, and Alexx said she thinks
Olivia knows, but no one else.
Most would probably say we're mismatched and have little in common other
than being lawyers. But they'd be wrong. We both believe strongly in the
value of the legal rules, but we're also both willing to bend them if we
think it' the right thing. I am perhaps more obvious about letting my
emotions show, but Alexx feels things just as deeply as I do. We also share
the same sense of humor, it just doesn't often get to show in our work.
Abbey suddenly appears at my side. "What are you smiling about Jack? Or
don't I need to ask?" she asks with a smile of her own.
I give her a look but don't answer.
"You have a date with Alexx tonight don't you?"
"Yes. I do," I admit.
"Have fun. You both deserve it."
"Thank you Abbey. I'll see you tomorrow."
"Night Jack," she says and then walks away.
I smile as I walk out the courtroom doors and see Alexx there talking to
Olivia and Elliot. They greet me as I join them. Olivia quickly ends the
conversation and drags her partner away, but not before giving Alexx a grin
that says she's purposely getting herself and her partner out of our way so
we can be alone.
Since there are still a lot of people around I don't take Alexx into my
arms like I want to. That will have to wait until we are truly alone.
This fic was mostly a way to find out if anyone else likes the idea of a
Jack / Alexx pairing. So please let me know what you think. . . If people
like it I'll probably do another (longer) Jack / Alexx story
