It was Monday morning in the SVU squadroom, and Olivia was pouring herself some coffee when Elliot walked in. Good morning!, he said cheerfully.

Good morning! And why are you so chipper today?, she asked with a smile.

Kathy and I are taking the kids on vacation next week. We finalized the plans last night...we're going to Hawaii!, he exclaimed, clearly excited.

Wow! That sounds like a lot of fun! How long will you be gone?

A week...we leave early Saturday morning. But I gotta ask you a favor...I just got this red Mustang convertible, and I was wondering if you could drive it while I'm gone? It gets fussy if you don't drive it every day, he explained.

Olivia raised one eyebrow. In what universe would I say no the use of a Mustang convertible for a week?

Elliot grinned. That's what I thought, but I just wanted to check. Take good care of it, ok? This baby's my fifth child, he said, handing her a spare key.

Of course!, she said, taking the key and smiling.
