"What did you do to her?" Elliot yelled as he went toward Patrick.

"Um…nothing…look dude…I mean detective…um…" Patrick choked out as he moved away from Elliot.

"I am going to kick your ass!" Elliot yelled at him. Patrick said nothing and just tried to move out of the way and jumped over the couch so Elliot couldn't hit him.

"Elliot stop it" Alex said getting in front of Patrick.

"This son of a bitch should pay for what ever he did, I told you he is only trying to get in your pants! What you make a deal? She gives you sex you give her a win for a case!" Elliot yelled.

"I know you don't like me and I really don't care but you don't need to insult her, just cause you wear a badge doesn't mean you can talk to people the way you want! " Patrick yelled at him. At that point Olivia and Alex were in the middle trying to separate them so they wouldn't fight. Both of the guys went in front of the girls and got each other's face.

"Fuck you, you stupid son of a bitch!" Elliot yelled and went to hit Patrick, he duct and grabbed Elliot's hand and twisted it behind his back, Elliot swung at Patrick with his other hand and hit him in the face, Patrick fell down and started bleeding from the nose.

"Elliot go to the car and wait, I'll get the warrants" Olivia said pushing Elliot away. Elliot looked at Olivia and then at Patrick and then a disappointed look to Alex and walked out of her apartment.

"Um…we just need the warrants," Olivia said feeling bad for Alex and Patrick.

"Yea, I'll get that for you" Alex said as she handed Patrick a napkin and went to her room.

"Look…Olivia…um Detective Benson…please don't tell anyone cause I don't want the judges to give Alex a hard time or anything" Patrick said holding his nose.

"I wont, and you can call me Olivia" Olivia said as she realized that he really cared for Alex.

"Ok…thanks" Patrick said.

"You know I actually suspected you guys dating but I wasn't sure until tonight" Olivia said as she sat on the couch and waited for Alex.

"You did?"

"Yea, not a lot of defense and district attorneys bitch at each other during court and then laugh about it after" Olivia said smiling.

"What about Casey and Andrew they flirt a lot but their not dating" Patrick said looking at her.

"They flirt but their not as bitchy during court like you two and you guys tried hiding it by being pissed at each other during court, which was so obvious since you got along and flirted the second after the verdict comes in" Olivia said smiling. Patrick just smiled and nodded.

"I got your warrants" Alex said coming out of her bedroom.

"Oh thanks, bye guys," Olivia said as she took the warrants and got up. "Your pizza is here" they heard Olivia yell out as she opened the door. Alex went and got the pizza. She came back and put it on the table and sat down on the floor next to Patrick.

"How's your nose?" She asked looking at him and placing her hand on his lap.

"It's ok, how you doing?" He asked putting his arm around her waist.

"I'm fine, Elliot just surprised me by saying what he did" Alex said placing her head on his chest.

"Yea, I'm sorry about that but for the record I'm not just trying to get in your pants" Patrick said smiling. She looked up at him and smiled.

"I know, you didn't even get to that point cause of them," Alex said laughing.

"But I would have" Patrick said laughing. She smiled.

"I love you," She whispered.

"I love you too" He whispered and kissed her. "Oh…ouch…my nose" He released their kiss. Alex laughed.

"Sorry about that, lets eat and watch a movie," She said getting up and taking his hand. He got up and followed her to the couch. They fell asleep watching a movie; Alex's alarm in her room woke them up at 7.

"Hey" she whispered looking up at him, she fell asleep on his chest.

"Hey" he said sleepily and gave her a kiss on the cheek.

"Your nose is bruised," she said smiling.

"That's fine, I'll just say I got in a bar fight or something" he said as he sat up.

"Yea, you want coffee?" She asked as she got up and went to her kitchen.

"I would love to but I need to get to my apartment and change cause I'm going to be late for work." He said as he hugged her from the back. She turned around and wrapped her arms around his neck. "First night I spend here and I don't get anything," He said laughing.

"You got a bruised nose, what else you want?" She teased laughing.

"I think you know, but I should get going," He said as he kissed her neck.

"I think when you say you should get going you actually get going," She said smiling.

"Yea, I know but its hard when you're around" He said smiling as he kissed her neck.

"Ok, that sounded so wrong" she said laughing. He started laughing as he realized what he said.

"I didn't mean it to come out that way," he said laughing. She laughed and kissed him.

Patrick arrived at his office around 9, Andrew was already there going over notes.

"Damn what happened to you?" Andrew asked smiling as he saw Patrick's nose.

"Got in a fight," Patrick answered as he got coffee.

"Alex beat you up?" Andrew teased his friend.

"No, shut up"

"Who hit you?" Andrew asked as Patrick sat down across him.

"Stabler, he found out we were dating and he hit him" Andrew started laughing. "Shut up, its not funny" Patrick said getting annoyed.

"It kind of is, but I told you that it wouldn't work out" Andrew said as he started going through papers.

"It's not that it didn't work out, we're still going out, it's just that now Stabler and Benson know, and stop jinxing my relationship" Patrick said as he sipped his coffee.

"Fine, but how long do you think it will last, cause that line of job and personal will get mixed up sooner or later" Andrew pointed out.

"No it wont, cause we don't talk about our jobs when were together and we don't bring our personal lives into the courtroom"

"Now, but you know one case, one of you will get attached and next thing you know your talking about who should win, I'm sorry to tell you that but you know its true" Andrew said.

"Shut up, you're not really helping me out now with your stupid lecture" Patrick said hating that he knew he was right.

"Ok, whatever, but I'm just trying to tell you before you two get too serious and then it will be harder." Andrew said hating to be the one that tells him that.

"Just shut up Andrew, you're really pissing me off." Patrick said getting angry. Andrew just shrugged and went back to work.

Alex walked into the DA building and spotted Brain and Christina talking. She rolled her eyes wondering why they just didn't go out and get it over with.

"Hey" Jim said walking over to her.

"Hey" Alex said as she grabbed a folder.

"Can I talk to you for a second?" Jim asked. Alex just nodded as they went into her office.

Jim closed the door behind him.

"What's up?"

"Um…I was wondering if you wanted to have dinner sometime?" Jim asked nervously.

Alex just looked at him "Oh…um…I don't know"

"It's just dinner Alexandra its not like I'm proposing"

Alex quickly looked up since Patrick would always say her whole name when he would make fun of her or they were flirting. "Um…I'm busy"

"You're busy your whole lifetime?"

"Oh…I'll think about it" Alex answered as she opened her folder.

Jim nodded and left her office.

It was around 3 in the afternoon when she heard a knock on her door. "Come in"

Jessica walked in with a file "Branch sent this to you"

"Thanks" Alex said taking the file and not looking up.

"Wow, who's that cutie?" Jessica asked looking outside the window.

Alex looked up from her papers and spotted Patrick in the hallway. He was wearing a black suit and baby blue dress shirt that worked off his eyes. The suit was close to his fit body and Alex always found him extremely attractive in that suit. "The cutie is a defense attorney"

"Oh…still cute" Jessica said as she left her office. Patrick walked to Alex's office. Jessica looked up and down at him and smiled.

"See something you like sweetheart?" Patrick asked smirking.

Alex looked at him and quickly gave him the 'oh no he didn't' face.

Jessica smiled "Jessica Rossi"

"Patrick Griffin" He said smiling "Excuse me Jessica Rossi" He winked at her and walked into Alex's office and closed the door behind him "Hi Cabot"

"Don't flirt with girls in front of me" Alex whispered and took a piece of paper and threw it at him.

Patrick laughed and threw the paper back. He got up and closed the shades in her office and then locked the door.

"What are you up to?" Alex whispered smiling suspiciously.

Patrick said nothing and kneeled down by her and took her face into his hands and kissed her. Alex wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him for a while and then broke the kiss. "We are in my office Pat," She whispered.

"I know, it's such a turn on," He whispered smiling as he started to kiss her neck.

"Oh god, don't turn me on here, you have to stop" She whispered gently pushing him off.

"One more kiss"

She gave him another kiss. He got off the ground and brought out a blue piece of paper from the inside of his blazer. "Motion to suppress the mask found in my clients car"

"Jerk" Alex mumbled taking the paper "Oh I hate you"

"I love you too," He said smiling giving her a kiss on the cheek "Want to wear that sexy dress for me tonight?"

Alex slapped his leg "Go away before I dump you" She teased smirking and shaking her head. Patrick smiled and gave her a kiss on the head. "Oh baby I have to talk to you about something" She said putting her hand on his chest.

"What's wrong?"

"Why does it have to be something wrong immediately?"

"Cause you just used the word baby after I gave you a motion" He said smiling as he jumped on her desk and put his hand on her cheek and teasingly slid it down to her neck and unbuttoned one of her buttons.

"Stop, no fooling around in my office" Alex whispered slapping his hand and buttoned her shirt. "Jim asked me out"

"Steele?" Patrick asked in a louder voice.

"Ssshhh, don't yell" She whispered. "Yes, Jim Steele, what should I do?"

"Well turning him down would be one thing" Patrick answered rolling his eyes.

"Honey you know I cant just say no cause he will ask why and I can't tell him I'm dating you"

"Then go out with him for one date and tell him it won't work out, but no kissing" Patrick said pouting.

Alex smiled and gave him a kiss. "No kissing, you got it. Now I know why I love you"

"Hey be nice I'm right here you know"

Alex laughed, "You should get going"

"Can I take Jessica Rossi on a date?" Patrick asked smiling as he jumped off the desk.

"Only if you want me to hurt you," Alex teased.

"No kissing I promise"

"Do what you want, I have to get ready for my date" Alex teased and gave him a kiss.

"Oh you're mean Alexandra"

"Goodbye Mr. Griffin" Alex shook her head and pushed him away.

Patrick laughed and gave her a kiss and unlocked her door and went outside where he got looks from most of the girls.

Christina and Jessica were getting coffee.

"Who's that?" Christina whispered as she kept looking at Patrick.

"Defense lawyer" Jessica whispered "Patrick Griffin"

"Damn…still cute"

"Hi Jessica Rossi" Patrick said smiling coming up to the two girls.

"Hi" Jessica said smirking at the blue eyes in front of her. "Um, this is Christina Finn"

"Nice to meet you" he said shaking hands with Christina.

"Hi…um…I'm going to go…do something" Christina choked out obviously smitten over Patrick and quickly walked away.

"So Jess…" Patrick said as he looked back at her.

Jim walked by the two and just stared at Patrick then Jessica. Jessica looked back at him and then back at Patrick. Jim said nothing and walked to Alex's office.


Alex looked up "Hey"

"Why is Rossi talking to Patrick Griffin?"

"Why don't you go ask" Alex said smiling and taking small peeks at her boyfriend talking to one of her colleagues.

"So…you thought about it?" He asked as he sat down across her.

"Oh…yea…I'll have dinner with you" Alex said with a small smile.

Jim smiled "Ok, good, 7 tonight?"

"Sure" Alex said with a nod and opened one of her files.

"Is there something going on between you and Griffin?"

Alex quickly looked up "What? Why would you think that?"

"Well he closed the shades here when he came in," Jim pointed out.

"Oh that? That was just business, he just gave me a motion, no big deal" Alex answered quickly.

"Sure?" Jim asked getting off his chair.

"Positive. I'll see you at seven"

Jim nodded and left her office. Alex tried to find Patrick but he was already gone. Alex just rolled her eyes not believing she was going on a date when she already had a boyfriend.
