He looked across his desk at the blonde across from him. How little time had passed between her and the golden brown headed woman that used to sit there. Now there was no sign that Olivia Benson had once been the woman that sat across from him. No sign but his own emotions and the numbness in his heart.
"Hey so what do you think?" Dani asked, looking up.
Elliot shrugged. "Don't know." He replied. "We'll find out more when Melinda comes back with the forensic results."
Dani glanced at her partner. "Okay."
Silence lingered. Elliot didn't want to get to know this woman. Didn't want her to replace Olivia. Dani could almost feel the unease radiating off of Elliot. She didn't think on it. Frankly she didn't care.
Olivia was arrested for the fifth time. She fought rolling her eyes after the handcuffs were put on her. Star was talking tough to her, but Olivia didn't hear a word she said. Another cell. Another successful job. Another day. Another questioning room.
"Hey nice job." Star congratulated her as she took off the handcuffs.
"How many more?" Olivia asked, her voice weary.
Star looked closely at her. "You're getting worn."
Olivia shook her head, "I can handle it."
But her eyes told otherwise. The truth was that she was tired. She was worn out. She was at the end of her rope and nothing to grasp hold of as she fell. She missed her old job, where she could actually know the victims she helped. Her job had always been hard, but working in the FBI was harder.
Star chose to ignore the look of weariness within Olivia's eyes. She worked for the FBI. One cop's weariness did not come over the greater good. But if a cop messes up because of her weariness does. She reasoned, but pushed the thought from her mind.
"Just a bit more." She said.
Olivia nodded. "I'm ready for it."
"Alright so where are we on this case?" Cragen asked his detectives.
Elliot spoke first. "Melinda came back with the autopsy results. Strangled. Everything else post mortem."
Dani kicked in. "Which means she was tossed into the dumpster right afterward."
"Alright, how are we doing with the suspects?" Cragen asked.
"We've covered the boyfriend. He's got in alibi. Claims he was five thousand feet above the ground in a plane coming back from Chicago." Munch said, reading from his notes.
"Okay. I want more evidence and suspect please." He said, "get cracking."
Dani turned to Elliot. "Let's canvas the friends. Maybe they'll know something about the vic's personal life."
He nodded and grabbed his coat, heading out for another day of work. His partner was alright, but she was no doubt overzealous about putting this guy away. She didn't know it, but Elliot had purposefully asked Munch to conduct the interview with the boyfriend, while they visited the M.E. He didn't want to risk both of them getting their butts in trouble again for police brutality or what not.
It was almost one in the morning. A lot had happened since then. Both detectives were in the worst mood they had known in a long time, Elliot because of Kathy and Dani because of their failure to obtain information from the victim's friends.
Elliot could not believe that she would have the guts to visit him at work and make a huge hysteria about their martial status. He was furious and hurt. Usually he would have spoken to Olivia, but she wasn't there. That just made him more upset. He wanted to get back at Kathy, but didn't know how. She had moved on, but had he?
Dani wasn't feeling very happy either. They were the only people left in the squad room. Munch had gotten on her nerves and she had scared him off along with Fin. She had her nose buried within files, but something compelled her to peek up at her new partner. It had been a long time since her husband died and she found that she missed having someone hold her and kiss her. Something pulled her toward Elliot Stabler.
She moved beside him and gazed at him. He ignored her at first, until he felt her breath on his ear. He didn't resist. Soon they were within the crib. Doing something both knew they shouldn't have been doing, but life forcing them into corners where they were running blindly.
Olivia raised her hands over her head. She had anticipated this moment for a while now. Suspicion had risen and she had seen it coming. Foretold it. Prayed that it would never come. Prepared when it did.
"What's your trick?" One of the leaders of the group she was following.
"Just lucky I guess." Olivia responded with a slight smile.
They hadn't believed her and now she knew it all came down to this moment. The cold barrel of the gun at her head, felt like a burn against the side of her face. They had been so close. So close. One last job. One last mission. A in moments it had all gone wrong. Olivia Benson wondered if this would be the last few seconds on earth. If the last thing she would see would the face of someone she had tried so hard to stop. For some reason, her mind went to the partner she had left behind. Begging his forgiveness. She closed her eyes and waited for the shot that she would never survive to investigate.
My little intro about the standing of this story. I had an inspiration and thought maybe I should write about it. I hope y'all enjoy it. Sorry I've been slacking at my SVU stories. I hadn't seen the show for a while until the new season started. Promise I will work harder on the EOness!
