Day 2

The hum in the bullpen was lower than usual. Olivia appreciated the quiet.

"Hey, Olivia. Cragen says you can take off for the day."

Olivia blinked at her partner. "Huh?"

"Go on; get out of here," Elliot said. "Go out and get hammered or something."

Olivia smiled sadly and shook her head. Drinking herself into oblivion held no appeal that night. "Nah. I think I'll stay for a while. Finish up some of this paperwork."

"Liv..." Elliot considered his words carefully. "We haven't forgotten. We just... didn't want to hurt you by mentioning it."

She nodded. "I know. Thanks, Elliot."
