A/N okay, so this is my first fanfiction to be posted. It may suck, and I will understand. But just so you know, writing wasn't my best subject

Disclaimer: I begged, Pleaded and even did a funny little dance, but they aren't mine

Chapter 1- Cragen's pov

So here I am, sitting in my office. The Gitano case has gotten to everybody, and I'm pretty sure that something will go wrong. It's just this gut feeling that I have. What's that? It's a knock at the door. I then see Olivia come in. I do believe that this case has affected her more than anybody.

"Liv, what's up?" I ask. She walks up to my desk slowly. I can tell there's a problem.

"I want a new partner," She says quietly.

I can't help but gaze at her for a while. What am I supposed to do when one of your better detectives is asking you to break up the best team you've ever had?

"A-are you sure Liv? Can yo-"

"Captain. Me and Eliott can't do this anymore."

"Do what?"
"This, there's this problem that we have. A problem that interferes with the job."

I look at her with a blank expression on my face.

"Cap, if it wasn't for me, Ryan might just be next to Rebecca, alive. Eliott had the kid a couple of yards away from him, and he chose me. And when Gitano held him at gunpoint, I chose him. It's a choosing game that we play, and every time we make a move, some victim ends up dead or injured. I can't play this game anymore."

I watch, as Liv lets the welled up tears roll down her face. I handed her a tissue box, and she willingly took one. I have absolutely no clue what to do. If I break them apart, I will lose an amazing squad, and possibly break a friendship. But if I don't, Liv and El will be uncomfortable, and more victims will wind up dead.

"Liv, does Eliott know what you are doing?" I ask.

"No," she replies just above a whisper.

"Do you want me to tell him?" I ask quietly, while she's heading toward the door.

She looks at me with a face filled with, pain, sadness, and somehow hope. I look back. She opens the door and walks out without a word.

In all my years as the captain, I've never had to make a decision this hard

A/N oookay there is my first fan fiction chapter ever. I know it's pretty short, and probably stinks, but it's a first. There will be more E/O to come, and I'll probably write a couple ofFin and Munch relatedchapters later. I'll update ASAP. (if I don't have writers block) P.S next chapter will be Eliott's pov.

Please press that little blue button, and I will be happy!
