Just Another Day

"Wow Liv, nice dress." Elliot noted as she came out of the ladies room. She was wearing a flowing navy blue dress that came to her knees, and had a halter top.

Elliot thought that she looked beautiful,but that seemed to be par for the course lately. He even thought that she looked gorgeous when she was in her workout cloths, drenched in sweat after a hard workout.

"Yeah, well it better be nice for the price I paid for it!" She laughed as she touched up her makeup using her computer screen as a mirror.

"You goin out with Rob again?" He asked, trying to mask his jealousy. He couldn't help it. A few years ago Elliot Stabler had been a married man. He didn't even consider his partner as anything more than a friend. Ever since his divorce though, things changed.

After months of shutting Olivia out, she had finally broken him. Sure it had taken about a dozen beers to finally make him open up, but after an entire night of letting it our, and lots of tears, they had finally bridged their gap. It was that night that Elliot realized he had feelings for her, and now he was sure he was head over heels in love with her.

"Yeah, we're going to see a string symphony." She smiled, taking one last look in her computer.

"Hey beautiful. I wasn't aware that I was taking Ms. America out tonight!" A tall, built, brunette man smiled as she strolled into the precinct in a tuxedo.

"Shut up Rob!" Olivia smiled as she rolled her eyes. "I'll see you guys tomorrow." She added to Elliot, Munch, and Fin. Then she grabbed her coat and purse and turned to be met with Rob's awaiting lips for a quick peck. He wrapped his arm around her slight waist, and led her out the door.

"It's good to see her happy." Fin noted after she was out of ear shot.

"Yeah, God knows she deserves it." Munch snorted.

"Yeah." Elliot huffed.

"You sound real convincing." Fin answered.

"What? I'm happy for her." Elliot defended. 'Just not for myself.' He thought to himself.

"Yeah okay." Fin chuckled.

"Fin, whatever you're thinking stop." Elliot said bluntly. He was pretty sure his coworker was onto him, and wanted avoid having THAT conversation.

"Yeah man, I just call em as I see em." Fin said under his breath.

Elliot just rolled his eyes, sighed, and turned his attention back to his paperwork. How could he convince anyone he wasn't jealous of Rob when he couldn't even convince himself?

Olivia sat on her barstool close to her boyfriend with a miller light sitting half drunk in front of her.

"That orchestra was beautiful." Olivia said as she slowly sipped her beer. Rob was downing one after the other, and she knew that one of them had to stay in control.

"I knew you'd like it." He smiled. Fortunately he was still able to form coherent sentences.

"We've only been dating two months. How is it that you know so much about what I like?" She asked with a smile.

"I guess I just have good intuition when it comes to you." He answered.

"Yeah, well I have a pretty good intuition that if you don't slow it down on those beers, tonight is not going to be pretty." She said, hinting that she wanted him to stay in control tonight.

"Don't worry babe. I know how to pace myself. Stop stressing. You get enough of that at work. This is relaxing time. Just sit back and enjoy the moment." He said as he turned in his seat. He placed each of his knees on either side of Olivia so that she was in the middle, straddled on each side by his legs. He put his hands on her hips and added, "You never just let lose, and trust me. I want you to do that tonight, okay? You deserve it! Let me take care of you tonight." He said

Olivia knew that Rob's heart was in the right place, but he had no idea how hard it was for her to let her guard down, especially around men. He wanted her to let him take care of her tonight, but she could tell that, by the way he was drinking; she was going to have to pour him into his bed later.

"Come on Liv, let's dance." He smiled as he pulled her out to the dance floor and pulled her against him to sway with the music. "Just trust me." He whispered as they danced.

For the first time, in a while, she decided to just go with it. Unfortunately, this was the worst time for Olivia to allow herself to let her guard down, and put herself in the hands of the man that now seemed so loving, and gentle that was standing before her.
