Author's Note: Sorry for the delay. Teachers like to pile things up. But I'm back. And no more history! Yay! And also yay because Olivia and Elliot are reunited on the show. Yay!
Olivia and Lexy were discharged three days later. Olivia was relieved. Although she was extremely tired, she did not think she could spend another day in the hospital. She needed to be in her own house. It was ready for them.
However, there was one stop she had to make first. Elliot knew about it, and he drove her straight there from the hospital. Once he was in the parking spot, he put the car into park. He removed the key from the ignition and turned to Olivia. "Are you sure about this?" he asked gently. "You don't have to do this."
"Yes, I do," Olivia corrected him. She slowly unbuckled her seatbelt. Her heart was pounding. This one moment was the thing she had been debating ever since Lexy was born. In her mind, Lexy was Elliot's daughter. Everything involving parents would be on her and Elliot. Elliot would always be her father. However, she could not forget the fact that Lexy was not biologically Elliot's. The real father was sitting in Rikers. According to Cragen, he had not been transferred. Olivia drew in a deep breath. He had the right to know.
Elliot kissed her hand before Olivia opened the car door. "I'll be right here," he promised her.
Olivia nodded as she moved towards the back of the car. She opened the door and carefully pulled Lexy out of her car seat. "Hey there," she said soothingly. Luckily, Lexy did not cry. Olivia placed a gentle kiss to her daughter's forehead. Olivia stood there for a moment as she turned to face Rikers. Jail was no place for a baby. Along with telling the father about Lexy, she had been having doubts about bringing her in there. She did not want anything bad happening to her. On the other hand, she did not know how easily he would believe her without actually seeing Lexy. He still did not think he raped her.
Olivia finally pulled Lexy in close as she walked towards the doors. She showed the guards her badge and told them who she was there to see, Rodney White. Rodney White as in the brother of Richard White, the man who had stalked her and almost tried to kill her when she first started working at SVU. It was chilling, but she knew her rape was not a coincidence. Rodney had to know who she was. She had to accept it. Finally talking to him would finally put her at ease. Her stomach jumped as she neared his cell, but she forced herself to remain calm.
Rodney looked up at her curiously. "Can I help you?" he asked. "Are you with the D.A.'s office?" He shook his head. "You're too hot for that."
Olivia shook her head back at him and rolled her eyes. "You listen," she commanded him. "I'm the woman you raped last August."
Again, Rodney shook his head. "Olivia, darling, you're mistaken. We made love."
"Where you duct taped my mouth, forced me into your car, and then forced yourself on me?" Olivia questioned. "That's not love." She shifted Lexy slightly in her arms. "And not only did your actions traumatize me, but they also produced a child." She looked down at Lexy. "Biologically, she is yours, and you have the right to know that." Her tone turned to a threatening one. "If you ever are lucky enough to get out, you are forbidden to see her. There will be a restraining order against you the moment you step foot outside of here. If you make any attempt at connecting her, we will sue. I am telling you this because you have the right to know. Now that I've told you, you forget about her. She will not be part of your life."
Olivia turned around on her heel and started walking back towards the main doors. Rodney coughed slightly, which caused her to turn back and face him.
"Are you going to tell her about me?" he asked.
"Not until she's older," Olivia said. "Now I have a husband to get to." With that, Olivia left.
Elliot smiled as Olivia entered the car. Lexy was buckled in her seat as was Olivia. The three of them were on their way home. "I called the church," Elliot said as they neared the apartment. "The last weekend in July is fine for the baptism."Olivia smiled. "Perfect." She could not be happier. Everything was perfect now.
((Author's Note: Yes, this is the final chapter. So sad. Let me know how you enjoyed the whole thing. And while this may be the last chapter, it's not the last of the things I have planned for Elliot, Olivia, and Lexy. Don't worry. They'll be back. I love that baby too much to let this be the last of her.))
