Olivia breathed in deeply and put her finger on the door bell, but she didn't ring it just yet. She was getting cold feet, what was she doing just barging in on her daughter and her family? What if Lyssa didn't know she was adopted? She could ruin everything! Olivia began to panic and moved her finger off the bell. She looked at Elliot for guidance but he didn't seem to notice, he was standing behhind her looking down at his shoes. He had his hand on her shoulder, for comfort, but wasn't paying attention to her.
"I can't do this. Elliot I can't." Olivia confessed. "What if she hates me. What if she doesn't want to know me?"
"It's ok Liv, I'm sure she doesn't hate you. Everything will work out." Elliot hugged her.
"I can't do it, not now, not yet. Let's just go back to your apartment. Please."
Elliot opened mouth to say something but in the end he just handed Olivia the keys. They got back into Elliot's car and Olivia drove away feeling like a coward. She let her nerves get the best of her. While she was at work she had nerves of steel but she could even ring a stupid doorbell. Was she really that afraid of what was on the other side of the door? Olivia didn't say anything in the car or when they got home, she just went into her bedroom and closed the door. Nothing Elliot could say could get her to come out, she just wanted to be alone.
Olivia rubbed her belly and spoke to her baby. "Hey little baby. I love you and I'm going to do my best in raising you. I don't know how but I'm going to do everything I can to make sure you have a happy, perfect life. Your father was a bad man but don't worry you never have to see him. I'm going to get you the best daddy ever..."
Olivia found it soothing to talk to her unborn child. It was soothing to both her and the child. Her OB/GYN had recommended playing classical music for the baby but Olivia had heard from one of her friends who had been pregnant that talking to the child would help him or her in the same way as classical music.
Finally Olivia came out of her room. "Elliot? Elliot where are you?" She called.
"In the living room." Came the reply.
Olivia walked into the living room and sat down on the couch next to Elliot. "I'm sorry for shutting you out like that. I just needed some time to think."
"It's ok." Elliot turned and faced Olivia. "I need some time alone every now and then too."
"Thanks for being so supportive of me. Not many people would do what you've done."
"It's ok. I don't mind at all. In fact, if you want to know the truth I kind of like having you here and being able to be with you."
Olivia and Elliot talked through a dinner of anti-pasta and pizza examining their relationship and just talking. Olivia didn't share anymore about her past but they both talked about their current lives and their future goals.
XxXThe Next DayXxX
"Hey, Liv it's time to wake up!" Elliot knocked on Olivia's door. "Todays your first day back to work off desk duty. You don't want to be late."
"I'm coming. I'm awake." Liv yelled.
She found some clothes and and began to get ready. She was excited to get back to work but she was also nervous because she would be starting to show soon and it would be easier to hide her pregnancy while sitting at a desk than while standing up and always on the go.
They drove to work together talking the whole way their. Olivia noticed that it took longer to get to work from Elliots place than her own.
"Hey Liv, great to have to back to work with the rest of us. How you feeling?" Fin said.
"Good. I'm doing good. Got any work for me or did you two do it all while I was doing your paperwork?"
"No, it's been a slow week."
The four detectives, Olivia, Munch, Fin and Elliot each gathered around the desks and talked, like they usually do before a case comes in. It felt good to be back to a state of normalacy. They all talked, avoiding the subject of Olivia's rape, when Cragen came in.
"Munch, Fin! Just got a call a body washed ashore from the Hudson. Here's the address." Cragen handed a small piece of paper. "And Liv, Elliot. Neighbor called, a young girl was found beaten in her apartment." Cragne gave Olivia the other piece of paper.
"It's good to have to back Liv." Cragen said as all four detectives headed to their respective locations.
"Here I'll drive." Elliot took the paper from Olivia.
