Chapter 19- One Line Or Two?

"I can't look!" She said excited.

"I can't look either!" He exclaimed.

They both gazed into each other eyes. He pulled her close to him and turned her around so that her back was against his chest, "On the count of three you'll pick it up and will look together, k?"

"Sounds like a plan."

"1…2…3!" He said.

She picked up the test but couldn't open her eyes. "What is it!?" She asked Elliot.

"You tell me! I have my eyes closed!" She nudged him in the stomach.

"Mine are closed too." She said with a laugh.

"Ok…this time on the count of three we both open our eyes and look ok?"


"1…2…2 and half (another nudge in the gut from Liv)…3!" he yelled.

They both opened their eyes and screamed for joy! "We did it!" He yelled as he picked her up and spun her around the bathroom, she laughed open mouth. When he finally put her down he saw the tears of joy in her eyes. He wiped them away with his fingers.

"I don't think I've ever been so happy." She said as she pressed her lips hard against his. Just wait he thought…

He led her into their bedroom and sat her down on the bed never breaking their kiss. She started to undue is button down when he stopped her. He placed his hand upon hers and put them down to her sides, "Liv…You have made me the luckiest man on this planet, and now you are giving me the best gift anyone can give, a child. I love you with my whole heart and soul, I don't know what I would do with out you," he got on one knee as he pulled a small jewelry box out of his pocket, "Olivia Benson, You are my partner, my best friend, my lover, my soul mate, the soon to be mother of my child, will you marry me, and be my wife as well?"

He took a deep breath. It wasn't the way he wanted to do it, but the moment felt so right he couldn't pass up this wonderful opportunity. He realized that through his ranting in his head she didn't answer, "Liv? Olivia…are you ok?" He looked into her eyes but it was as if she had mentally checked out. "You who! Liv? Earth to Liv?"

She shook her head and came out of it. Tears streamed down her face as she gazed into Elliot's eyes, "I…I…I'm speechless…for the first time in my life I think I am actually speechless."

"Liv you're scaring me…is that a 'yes'?"

"Are you kidding me Stabler? That is a HELL YES!" She jumped up into his arms and crashed his lips into his, "Yes! Yes! Yes Elliot Stabler I will marry you!"

He pulled her onto the bed where they made the sweetest most tenderness love they have made thus far in their relationship.


After they were exhausted from their 3 hour love making session they lied awake in bed. He was rubbing her stomach, and she was eyeing her ring.

"This ring is beautiful El…I've never seen it's equal." She said looking up at him with her mocha brown eyes.

"It was my mothers." He said kissing her forehead.

"What? But how? I mean I can't accept this, I mean why me? Why---" He put his finger up to her mouth.

"First of all Liv, you can accept it, and you will, because you deserve it. Secondly I know what you are thinking, how come Kathy never got it?" She shook her head, "Because my mom always thought that Kathy tricked me into marrying her, she said our marriage wasn't based on love, and that her ring, that has been in our family for generations, and generations, always goes to a marriage that is between soul mates. She was a smart woman Liv; she knew what she was talking about. Look at the inscription."

Her eyes were still a little watery. She pulled off the ring and read the inscription, "Soul mates are forever." She read aloud. "What about Jenni? Or--" She got caught off again.

"Jenni is sporting Bryan's great-grandmothers ring, and it doesn't matter, I truly believe in my heart that my mom was saving this ring for me, for my soul mate. Do you know where Jenni and I found this ring?"

She shook her head 'no'.

"It was in my mom's jewelry box, you know what it was on top off?" She shook her head no again, "A picture of you and me." he kissed her forehead.


The next morning Liv and El choose to sleep in a little longer then normal, after all they were completely exhausted after last nights events…all of them!

"We're going to have to tell them." Olivia said snuggling up to Elliot's warm naked body.

"I know…when?"

"Monday morning?"

"Sounds good to me. I can't wait to see Munch and Fin's faces when we tell them you are pregnant!"

"I love you El, more than I ever knew was possible."
