A/N: Sorry about the Alex thing guys…It was late. Hope you enjoy. This might be the last, although I've though about an in the future like chapter, but I wasn't sure…you know, with Callie and Clark?
"You and I are talking later, but first, how's Olivia?" Fin said, glaring at Elliot. Munch was half amused half pissed off at Elliot.
"And twins?" Cragen asked, shocked.
"Mom's fine. And yes, Liv had twins. All three are doing fine. You guys want to see them?" Everyone nodded, never saying a word. They all went into the room expect for Cragen, who stopped when he reached Elliot.
"What the hell is going on, Elliot? You're dead…" he said, knowing it wasn't true, since, well, he was standing in front of him.
"It was the case…I was shot. I remember Fin telling me I had to make it otherwise Liv would kick his ass. The next thing I knew, I woke up in a private room and there were three FBI standing at the foot of my bed. What was I supposed to do?" He signed and sat down next to the older man. "I would've left if I could've. I tired so many times to call you, or Liv, or even my kids…they wouldn't even let me talk to them. It killed me leaving everything, Cap. It really did." Elliot noticed the tears forming in his eyes and brushed them away. "Go see your daughter." Cragen grinned. He always thought of Olivia as a daughter and her being called that made him grin.
"Welcome back, Elliot." Cragen shook his hand and hugged him before walking in the room. Elliot sat back down and put his head in his hands. He had no intention of leaving this hospital tonight.
When he called Kathy, she promised to bring the kids down, knowing that Olivia was having the baby. (AN: Kathy is NOT a bitch in this one…sorry.) He looked up in time to see Kathy rounding the corner.
"Kath…thank you," he whispered, standing up and hugging her. "You have no idea how I appreciate this." She nodded, still trying to take in Elliot being alive. "I'm here, Kathy. I'm so sorry I did this to you and the kids. I really am."
"I know, Elliot. You would've been here if you could've," she whispered, just as Maureen came around the corner.
"Mom I-" she said before stopping when she saw her father standing there. "Daddy?" Her voice was barley above a whisper. She was the oldest, but you would've sworn she was the youngest. Elliot nodded and she ran into his arm. "How? How is it…wow…How's Liv?" He grinned, knowing her daughter could only think about one thing at a time.
"She's fine," he said, looking from Kathy to Maureen. "She had twins." He grinned again. The woman he was in love with just gave birth to their twins.
"What?" Maureen said, grinning. "Can I go in, Daddy?" He laughed and nodded toward the door.
"Go." She did as she was told, leaving him and Kathy standing there again.
"Congradualtions, Elliot. Tell Olivia-" she started before he held up a hand to cut her off.
"She'll be happy to see you. Go. I'll wait for the kids." She nodded and went into the room. Elliot turned around just in time to run smack into the twins. "Hey guys.
"Dad?" they both questioned, amazed. "Mom told us you were dead."
"We went to the funeral dad," Dickie told him. Elliot nodded, and sat down with the twins just as Katie walked around the corner. "Sit." Elliot grinned at his son. "Dad was about to explain this to us."
Elliot told the kids and they took it very well. The wrapped their arms around him and hugged him before they realized why they were here. They excused themselves and went into Olivia's room. He put his head in his hands and sat there until he felt hands on his shoulders. When he looked up, he saw Munch and Fin standing in front of him.
"Cragen told us. We're glad to have you back," Fin said, hugging Elliot. Munch shook his head.
"Damn government. I knew they had to be involved in this somehow. Nothing can kill the infamouos Elliot Stabler," he said, grinning and hugging Elliot. The three laughed and Elliot grinned.
"Except for having twins with Liv and giving her this," he said, pulling a box out of his pocket with a ring. The look of amazement hit their faces. "I bought it before I left town. Think she'll say 'yes'?" They laughed.
"If she doesn't, no woman will ever marry you, Elliot," Casey said, standing behind Fin. Elliot grinned. "She'll marry you. It'll take her time to get use to the fact that you're here again, but she loves you. Trust me." He smiled.
"Thanks, Case," he said, wrapping his arms around Casey.
"We gotta hit the road. We'll see you later, Elliot," Fin said, patting him on the back and waving good-bye. Munch followed closely.
"I meant it. Thank you…for everything. For taking care of Liv when I couldn't…I…just…" Casey grinned when she realized Elliot Stabler was at a loss for words.
"Don't worry about it. I gained a best friend in the process, Elliot." She kissed his cheek. "I love you guys. You guys are my best friends, so consider it a job well done. Besides, she introduced me to the man I love." Elliot grinned.
"That's my Liv…So, you really think she'll like?" he asked, holding out the ring.
"Is that a ring!" the kids, Kathy, and Cragen all said at the same time. Elliot groaned. He knew Olivia was going to be pissed that she was the last one to know about this ring. He grinned.
"Yeah. It is. I love her. I can't lose her again." They nodded and said they understood. They all left. Elliot promised the kids they'd get together this weekend and spend the entire weekend together. Maureen and Katie didn't even protest the weekend because they wanted to spend time with their dad and baby brother and sister too. Especially with Olivia.
Elliot grinned when he was finally able to walk back into Olivia's room. "No more people," she groaned. He laughed and she grinned without looking up. The twins were asleep in her arms. "The doctor said he was going to come back in a few and take the twins to the nursery. They've already been fed, so…you get me all to yourself, El." He nodded, knowing he had a lot of redeeming to do. He took his daughter from her and held her close.
"She looks so much like you, Liv…so beautiful," he whispered, placing a kiss on Callie's forhead and looking down at Olivia. "I love you, Liv." She grinned. The doctor came in before she could say anything.
"Looks like mom and the twins are doing good. We're going to take them to the nursery now and let them get some sleep. I suggest you do too, Olivia. Never know when they'll be hungry again," he told them. Elliot smiled and Olivia smacked him.
"I know what you're thinking, Stabler. Just because they're part me doesn't mean they're going to be hungry again in five minutes." He only laughed and placed Callie in her crib before kissing her cheek. He placed a kiss on Clark's cheek before the nurses rolled them to the nursery.
"I presume you're staying here, Mr. Stabler?" the doctor asked. Elliot nodded. "Good. We'll bring in the birth certificates for you two to sign in a few minutes." They nodded again and the doctor walked out, leaving them completely alone for the first time since Elliot had gotten back.
Elliot moved over to the other side of the bed and sat down. "I am so sorry, Liv. I really am." She caressed his cheek.
"El, don't. You had no choice. You're here now. That's all that matters. Yes, I wish you could've stayed, but you couldn't. I understand that. It's part of being a cop. We went through this with Alex." He said the look of pain at her name being brought up. "I love you, Elliot. I really do." He smiled.
"I love you too, Liv. You are amazing. I mean, you just gave birth to our children and you've never looked as amazing as you do right now," he said, kissing her forehead. She held the back of his neck and pulled his lips down to hers. He stopped before they touched. "You sure?" She didn't speak. She only pulled his lips to hers.
It was something they both wanted for the longest time. They missed the feel of each other. Their tounges touching and caressing their lips and mouths. "Elliot." He grinned when she moaned his name. "I've missed your touch. I've missed this." He nodded in agreement. He pulled the box out of his pocket and held it in his hand.
"I have a gift, Liv. I didn't want to give this to you here, but I can't wait. I have no choice. If I don't do this now, I'm afraid I'll never get a chance. Liv, so much has happened with us and…I just…I…" She smiled.
"Cat got your tounge, Stabler?" He grinned.
"You could say that. More like the most beautiful woman in the world," he whispered. "I want you to marry me." He flipped open the box and showed her the ring. Her eyes got big and welled up with tears, almost making his do the same. He hated to see Olivia cry, no matter what caused the tears.
"Oh, Elliot…of course I'll marry you," she whispered, pressing his lips to hers. He gently slipped the ring on her finger and held her in his arms, thanking God for her. "I love you." He smiled as she slowly drifted off.
"I love you too. Always and forever."
