A/N: This is my first fan fiction. So if it's a little cheesy sorry. Please review and let me know what you think.

Disclaimer: I do not own any SVU characters. They all belong to Dick Wolf, with the exception of a few characters I make up along the way.

Chapter 1: Symptoms

The day started out pretty much as any other day. Olivia Benson entered the Special Victims Squad room at approximately 6:30 A.M.

"Just in time, Benson," Captain Cragen said, "we've got a rape-murder on the corner of 9th and 11th Street."

"We're on it," Olivia said.

Elliot and Olivia headed straight to 9th and 11th.

What happened?" Olivia asked M.E. Warner as they got there.

"A woman was raped and murder last night around 11:00 P.M., those two early morning joggers found her around 6:10 A.M.," Warner told them.

She showed them the body which has cuts all over it. It all appeared to have been done by a very sharp object. The body was naked.

"Where are her clothes?" Elliot asked.

"The victim was found naked," Warner told him.

"Do we have an id?" Olivia asked.

"No, whoever did this took her purse as well," Warner said.

8:30 A.M. SVU Squad room

"Our Jane Dough is really named Melanie Williams," announced Captain Cragen, "she was 31 years old and of Queens, her husband just identified her." Then he turned to Munch and Fin, "I want you two to go question him, Benson and Stabler you two check out the crime scene for a gold cross, the husband claims she always wore one, but it wasn't found with the body."

"Right on it, Captain," they all said.

During the questioning of Michael Williams he told them that he had taken their two year old son to his mother's house. He and Melanie had been planning to spend the night alone. When Melanie didn't show up after nine that night he got worried. Then when the Morning News came on this morning he heard an unidentified woman had been found dead, so he called the police.

Meanwhile, Olivia and Elliot were driving to the crime scene.

"Hey, Liv, are you okay?" Elliot asked.

"Yeah, I'm fine, I'm just a little tired," Olivia told him.

"You sure that's all?" Elliot asked in concern for his partner.

"Yes!" she snapped at him.

"Gee, no need to get moody," Elliot said.

"Oh, just shut-up!" snarled Olivia.

Finally they arrived at the scene. Immediately they began to search the area for the cross.

"You know, this perp may have taken the cross as a souvenir," said Olivia.

"Not so fast," Elliot said. "What's this?" He picked up a gold cross.

"Where's the chain, it was a necklace?" asked Olivia.

"That's odd . . . why just take the chain?" asked Elliot.

"Well, there were marks around her neck, maybe he just choked her with it and it broke and maybe it's still in the area?" asked Olivia.

"I don't think so, Olivia are you sure you're okay?" asked Elliot.

She felt rather dizzy. She didn't know what was going on! Suddenly she fell and Elliot caught her.

"Liv, wake up!" was the next thing Olivia remembered hearing.

"What just happened?" Olivia asked Elliot.

"I think you just had a dizzy spell, perhaps you should see a doctor, you haven't looked good all day," Elliot told her.

"I don't find that a necessity," Olivia said to him.

"Olivia why do always have to be so damn stubborn!" cried Elliot.

"I'm fine!" scowled Olivia. Then suddenly she felt very sick to her stomach. She threw up.

"Ok, that's it, you're going to the doctor," Elliot said.

Elliot drove his partner to the nearest clinic. "Do you want me to go in with you?" he asked her.

"No," said Olivia grumpily.

She entered the room. "Hello, I am Dr. Matthews, it is my understanding you've been having dizzy spells and vomiting?"
"Yeah," Olivia answered.

"Well, I will run some tests now," Dr. Matthews said.

"Okay," Olivia sighed.

A/N: okay, I'm sure you think you know what's going on. But remember the title Surprises. Please R&R!
