Adam pulled on his helmet as they got ready to play a game with paintballs. Fin went with him since Elliot had to go to Dickie's basketball game.

"You played this before?" Fin questioned as he took the gun.

"Yeah. With dad." Adam answered. "Pretty easy. Just shoot the other team."

"I know how to play man; I'm asking if you do." Fin smirked and took the helmet. He pulled it on.

"I know." Adam laughed. "By the way, thanks for coming with me."

"No problem." Fin nodded. "So I heard you're going to be a half brother."

"Yeah." Adam shrugged. "Sucks."

"It'll be cool. You have another brat to boss around." Fin teased with a smirk.

"Mom and Dominic got in a fight. I bet the asshole doesn't want the kid."

"Dom is a pretty cool guy, once you get to know him." Fin shrugged and got his weapon ready.

"He is a pussy." Adam shook his head and quickly ran as the game started.

Fin quickly went behind a tree and looked for the other team to shoot. Someone got him in the chest. "Son of a bitch." He went out of the game and took his helmet off.

Adam got a couple guys until someone shot him straight in the head. He instantly fell to the ground from the force.

"You ok?" Fin yelled over.

"Fine." He yelled back and took the helmet off. "Jesus Christ"

The guy that shot him stood over him. "Opps."

Adam let out a deep breath hating this guy. He was on the soccer team and Adam was on the football team. They disliked each other with a passion. "I know you like heads Calvin but didn't have to shoot me there." Adam got off the ground. "Asshole." He mumbled and started to go out of the game.

"Hey since when is your mom doing a black guy?" Calvin provoked. "I thought your daddy died."

Adam instantly tackled him to the ground. Both of the boys started fighting.

Fin ran over and yanked Calvin off Adam. "Get your ass over there." He pushed him away. He helped Adam up. "You ok?"

"Fine." Adam wiped his bloody nose. "Let's get out of here."

Fin took out his car keys and went into his car. Adam followed.


Olivia instantly got off the couch when Adam and Fin came into the house. "What happened?" She questioned seeing Adam's lip had a cut.

"Nothing mom." Adam answered.

"He got in a fight with some kid." Fin answered. "Totally justified by the way."

"Sit." Olivia ordered. Fin sat down. "Not you." Adam sat down on the couch. Olivia got some Q-tips, antibacterial cream and bandages. She sat down across Adam and cleaned the cut on his eyebrow. "What happened?"

Adam didn't answer. Olivia looked over at Fin. "I'll tell you later." Fin said quietly not wanting to repeat it in front of Adam.

"I'm not a baby." Adam snapped. "That stupid fag Calvin said something about dad so I tackled him."

Olivia let out a deep breath and put a bandage on his cut. "Go to your room."

Adam rolled his eyes and got up. "Am I grounded?"

"I don't know yet. Just go." She pleaded.

Adam nodded at Fin. "Thanks for coming."

"Sure." Fin nodded. Adam went upstairs to his room. Olivia instantly looked over at Fin with a mean look. "What? They started fighting before I could stop it."

"I put him in your custody for two hours and he comes home with cuts and bruises? Christ Tutuola." She got up and went to the kitchen.

Fin followed. "He isn't a baby liv."

"Well he isn't a man either." She answered angrily.

"You have to let him grow up sooner or later."

"Later. Thank you very much."

"Olivia c'mon, I know you're protective over him but you can't always baby him. That makes it worse. Especially without William around, he doesn't have a father figure around."

"Yes he does. He has almost four of them. You, Elliot, Cragen and sometimes John."

"All I'm saying is, you have to let him grow up on his own a little." Fin shrugged. "See you at work. If you need anything, call."

She nodded. "Thanks."

Fin left the house.


Olivia sat on the couch watching cartoons with Alexis. Adam was sitting by them doing homework.

There was a knock on the door. Adam got up and answered it. Dominic was standing there. "What do you want?"

"Is your mom here?"

"Why?" Adam crossed his arms on his chest. Olivia got up from the couch and went to the door.

Dominic looked over at her. "Can I talk to you?" he glanced at Adam. "In private."

Olivia nodded. "Adam go put your sister to bed."

"Mom-" He objected.

"Go." She ordered and stepped outside of the house and closed the door behind her. "What do you want?"

"I wanted to talk about what happened." Dominic answered and sat down on the stairs. "Can we talk?"

Olivia sat down by him. "As long as we don't yell."

"I won't." He smiled a little at her. "How's the baby?"

"Good." Olivia nodded. "I'm going to the doctor tomorrow."

He nodded. "Oh ok." He turned to look at her. "Olivia…I want to be part of this baby's life."

"I know."

"And I know we might not be together anymore but that shouldn't change anything."

"It changes a lot of things Dom." She took his hand. "I already have two children. I don't want to be the type of mom to have her kids from different fathers."

"What do you mean?"

"It might be best if you're not part of the baby's life." She whispered.

He just stared at her. "What? What are you talking about?"

"Dominic it's not personal-"

"You not wanting my own child to know that I am the father is personal Olivia." He defended. "I can't believe you're saying this."

"I'm sorry. You're just not ready for what's to come with a kid."

"Don't tell me what I'm ready or not ready for Olivia." He got off the stairs. "Look…I came here to take responsibility even if you don't want me to. So I'm going to talk to your doctor and have him send me all the bills. I'll pay for everything."

"Dominic you don't have you to do that. I'll be fine."

"No. That's my child in there also. I want to do something if you won't let me raise it. I'll pay for all the medical check-ups and all of that."

She nodded. "That's sweet of you. It really is."

He shoved his hands in his pockets. "I guess that's all." He bit his lip. "If you need anything-"

"I know. Thanks." She answered. He waved a little and went back to his car. Olivia sat there for a couple minutes until she got up and went into the house.
