I wake up and rolling over to my side I realize that I'm at a loss of something, at a loss of her and her warmth she provides me. I get out of bed and blindly make my way through our dark bedroom. Finding the door knob I notice a blue glow creeping through the crack under the door.
"Liv?" I say walking into the living room. She doesn't respond and I see the rising and falling of her chest, and smiling I realize that she's fallen asleep while watching TV, I don't even remember hearing her leave, I think as I make my way over to the couch and kneeling down in front of her I turn on the lamp beside the couch, bringing a little bit more light into the some what dark room, then turn off the TV. I run a hand through her hair trying to wake her even though I don't want to, I know however if she sleeps on the couch she'll be cranky the next morning, she immediately shifts in her sleep.
"John?" she says tiredly.
"Well Duh!" I joke just to see her smile, which she does.
"Did the TV wake you?" she asks worriedly.
"No, you not being beside me work me" I answer kissing her on the forehead; she wraps her arms around my neck to pull me into a hug. "What's wrong?" I whisper into her ear. She pulls back before answering.
"That shouldn't have happened to her John" I know exactly what she's talking about, the latest case has gotten to her and I knew it from the second that the little girl cried and told Liv everything. Told her what her father did to her and what her father made her brother do to her. The sick bastard taped everything that she had to endure. I'll never understand why criminals always keep things to incriminate themselves. Olivia also had to watch every single tape and look at every photo of what happened, I would have done it for her but I wasn't there.
"I know Liv, I know"
"I had a nightmare, I couldn't get to her on time…I couldn't save her" I can hear the tears in her voice.
"Its okay" all I can do is be here for her.
"No it's not okay!" she says "no child should ever go through that…he's her father for god sake, the very man who is suppose to protect her and be there for her not do what he did…I can't stand it anymore day after day it's another child, another woman, another victim. How can people do this to another human being?" she asks tears in her eyes and it breaks my heart.
I reach up and wipe a stray tear before answering "I don't want know Liv, I'll never understand why people do the things they do and I honestly don't want to know why. All I know it that we are doing our best to help these victims and stop these perverts"
She sighs "let's go to bed"
