I don't own them...


When she woke up, Alex opened her eyes to see that she was still in Olivia's arms. This was place she could get used to being.

"Merry Christmas," Olivia looked down at Alex.

Alex looked up at Olivia, "How did you know I was awake?"

"You moved," Olivia replied.

"Well, Merry Christmas to you too," Alex smiled. She snuggled into Olivia's neck, "I don't want to get up."

"You don't have to," Olivia smiled.

Alex smiled and took a deep breath, "Thanks."

Olivia rubbed Alex's back and tried to ignore the butterflies in her stomach. After all, she was laying on Alex Cabot's couch with Alex Cabot in her arms.

Olivia looked at the room in the daylight seeping from around the blinds. "Do you have any plans today?"

Alex took a deep breath, "I don't know. I might swing by the office."

"No you're not," Olivia replied, "Cragen forbid me to work, so I forbid you to work."

Alex propped herself up on her elbow to looked at Olivia with and amused smile, "You forbid me?"

Olivia smirked and nodded.

"Do you remember who I am?" Alex asked with her best lawyer tone.

"I'm not afraid of you," Olivia chuckled.

Alex raised an eyebrow, "You should be, you don't have your gun."

"I'm a cop remember?" Olivia asked.

"But," Alex leaned over Olivia, "I'm already on top."

Olivia laughed, "I always figured you for a top."

Alex smiled slyly, "Have you been thinking about me having sex detective?"

Olivia was suddenly speechless and blushing.

Alex giggled and got off of Olivia. She stood next to the couch and offered Olivia her hand, "C'mon, let's go get breakfast."

After Alex changed and got Olivia something else to wear, they left Alex's apartment and started walking toward her car.

"What do you think Cragen's doing?" Alex asked.

Olivia shrugged, "He might be at the precinct."

Alex took out her phone and dialed. She smiled at Olivia as she put her phone to her ear, "Don?…what are you doing?…No, I didn't let her go to work. Would you like to join us for breakfast?…okay, see you there." She hung up. "We're meeting Cragen at the café across the street from the courthouse."

Alex and Olivia walked into the café a few minutes later. Cragen was already sitting at a table.

"Good morning Captain," Olivia smiled.

"Why aren't you two going something better on Christmas Day than having breakfast with me?" Cragen asked.

Alex seated herself, "You said it yourself, no one should be alone on Christmas."

"Don't you have some family to be with?" Cragen asked lightly.

"They're all off with their significant others and my mother is with her grandchildren," Alex took a sip of water, "So since I'm lacking both of those things, I am alone."

Olivia cleared her throat.

Alex chuckled, "I'm alone with Olivia. And now you."

They ordered breakfast and ate while exchanging Christmas stories and making small talk.

Olivia and Alex said their goodbyes to Cragen and walked out together.

"So," Olivia put her hands in her pockets, "If you don't mind me asking, why doesn't Alexandra Cabot have a significant other like all her siblings?"

Alex shrugged, "I could give you a whole list of reasons including I'm really picky to I work to much. I guess it's really that I haven't found the right person yet."

"Person?" Olivia asked, raising an eyebrow.

Alex looked at Olivia, "Yeah person. I'm not going to marry a goat."

Olivia smiled, "So what do you look for in a person?"

"Um…" Alex paused, then a slow smile crept across her face, "Someone I can cuddle up with on the couch. Someone I can fall asleep, feeling completely safe in their arms."

"Oh yeah?" Olivia beamed.

Alex went on, "Oh, can't forget someone who can build a fire."

"Of course not," Olivia stopped walking.

Alex stopped and turned to face Olivia, "Someone who can take the first step toward a physical relationship."

Olivia got the hint. She slid one hand onto Alex's waist and the other up to her neck. Then she pulled Alex in for a kiss. Alex's warm lips on hers in the cold day heightened the sensation and Alex rested her hands at the base of Olivia's neck.

Olivia made a mental note to herself to thank Elliot and send him a muffin basket before losing herself in Alex.


It can go on or I can leave it at that. I'm not sure yet...
