When Olivia woke up in the morning, she found that Alex was still sleeping soundly in her arms. She looked over at the clock which was still not on. Her eyes scanned the now sunlit room. The walls and decoration of the bedroom made it feel very comfortable and inviting.
Then Olivia's eyes found their way to back Alex. Olivia couldn't resist and placed a soft kiss on Alex's forehead.
The young ADA tried to snuggle deeper into Olivia in her sleep, but found it impossible. With an irritated moan, Alex sighed and went back to being peacefully still.
Olivia fought off a giggle so she wouldn't wake Alex, but the harder she fought the more her body was forcing her.
Alex's fluttered open and found herself looking at the incredible soft looking skin at the curve of her favorite detective's neck. Biting her lip to keep herself from pressing her lips to the near irresistible area of skin, Alex pulled away from Olivia slightly to see that her companion was already awake.
"Good morning," Olivia smirked.
"Morning," Alex smiled and laid her head on the pillow closest to her.
"Were you warm enough?" Olivia asked.
Alex nodded, "Yes. Thank you."
"Anytime," Olivia replied. And she really meant it. Anytime Alex needed someone to hold her for any reason, she'd be there at the drop of a hat.
"What do you say we go grab some breakfast before I have to go to work?" Alex asked.
"Okay," Olivia agreed.
They got dressed and walked out of the hallway. Just as Alex closed the door the power came back on in the hallway.
Alex looked up at the lights, "Great." She pressed the button for the elevator.
When the doors opened, Olivia got in, then Alex stepped in. Olivia pressed the button for the ground floor and they watched the doors close.
Suddenly, there was a jerk and the power went off again.
"You have got to be kidding me," Alex looked up as the emergency lights came on.
"Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to take the elevator right after a blackout," Olivia mentioned.
Alex looked at Olivia, raising both eyebrows, as if asking did you seriously just say that?
Alex rolled her eyes and smiled, "We're stuck in an elevator and you're smiling?"
Alex pulled out her phone and checked it. "I don't have a signal."
"I do, but my battery is almost dead," Olivia handed Alex her phone.
Alex called her landlord, then called her secretary.
"And I need you to reschedule everything I have for today," Alex told her secretary, "There's no telling how long I'll be stuck in here."
"Yes Miss Ca-" her secretary was cut off by Olivia's phone dying.
Alex looked at the phone and sighed. She gave the phone back to Olivia and started pacing, "I need to get those motions filed and I needed to go see Petrovsky about that case…."
Olivia caught Alex by the shoulders, "Hey." She caught Alex's eyes, "Relax. With all the babbling, you going to breath all my air."
Alex's mouth dropped open and her eyes got wide.
Olivia burst out laughing, "I was kidding. Lighten up. So we're stuck in a giant metal box. Big deal."
"Big deal?" Alex asked, "We're trapped in a giant metal box, suspended by metal cables above God knows how many feet."
Olivia took Alex's hands, "Sweetheart, we're between the first and second floor. We're probably only thirty feet off the ground." She put Alex's hands against the her heart and added, "Breathe, baby, breathe."
Alex took a long deep breath, "Okay, I'm sorry." She rested her forehead on Olivia's shoulder for a beat then stood up straight.
Olivia smiled, "It's okay. At the precinct worked at, before I got promoted to detective, the elevator got stuck all the time. We'll be fine."
Alex dropped her attaché to the ground and shed her shoes. They sat on the floor against the wall, side by side, and studied each other.
"Can I ask you a personal question?" Alex asked.
"Of course," Olivia nodded.
Alex took a deep breath, "What was the name of the last person you dated?"
Olivia raised an eyebrow and smirked, "Why?"
"Curiosity," Alex replied.
"Jaime," Olivia replied.
"Oh," Alex nodded, not getting an answer she wanted. Jaime could be a girl or a guy.
"What about you?" Olivia asked.
Alex took a deep breath and decided to bite the bullet. "Laura."
"A woman?" Olivia asked surprised.
A smile crept across Olivia's face, "You're not still dating her are you?"
Alex shook her head.
"Well then would you like to go to dinner with me?" Olivia asked.
Alex blinked, "What?"
"I asked if you would like to go to dinner with me," Olivia smirked.
"Yes, I would love to," Alex smiled, "I just had no idea."
"Well, I got kind of hopeful when you kissed me last night," Olivia added.
Alex blushed, "You felt that?"
Olivia nodded, "It was sweet."
"I thought you were asleep," Alex confessed.
"But um…it's not exactly where I wanted to kiss you," Alex breathed.
Olivia's breath caught in her throat, "Where was that?"
Alex leaned over and touched her lips to Olivia's. Olivia leaned into the kiss. Alex's hand came up and caressed Olivia's face.
A shiver ran down Olivia's spine. The kiss was electrifying.
When Olivia finally pulled away, Alex was beaming.
"Wow," Olivia smiled back.
Alex chuckled, "Well, since there's nothing else to do…"
Olivia took the hint and pulled Alex in for another heated kiss.
