They picked up dinner on the way to Alex's apartment. They spread the food out on the coffee table and decided to eat while watching old movies.
"Mmm," Alex said after her first bite, "I love Mexican food."
"Me too," Olivia smiled.
Alex picked up a slice of a jalapeño and popped it into her mouth. She raised her eyebrow to Olivia in a challenge to do the same.
Olivia, never being one to back down from a challenge picked up a jalapeño and bit into it. Her eyes started to water and her mouth was burning. Alex trotted to the kitchen and returned with a glass of milk, handing it to Olivia who drank half of it in one breath.
Alex chuckled, "Too hot?"
Olivia rolled her eyes, "You tricked me. Somehow you knew that one was hotter than the one you ate."
"No I didn't," Alex replied, "Pick any jalapeño in there."
Olivia picked up one and handed it to Alex. Alex popped it into her mouth, chewed it up and swallowed without so much as a blink of an eye.
"I ate a lot of Mexican food growing up," Alex smirked, "In fact we ate Mexican food at least four times a week when my mom was pregnant with my little brother."
"So you've had practice," Olivia stated.
"If that's what you want to call it," Alex replied leaning toward Olivia. She softly kissed Olivia until Olivia's tongue begged entrance into her mouth.
Olivia could taste the remnants of the spicy pepper in Alex's mouth. It heightened the sensation of the kiss. Her tongue burned as it explored.
Alex smiled dreamily as Olivia pulled away. She ran her hand up Olivia's arm and up her neck to cup her cheek, "You're so beautiful."
Olivia felt her cheeks get hot with a blush. She kissed Alex again, this time pulled her to her feet without breaking the kiss. Alex let Olivia pull her down the hallway before breaking the kiss and realizing where they were.
Alex slid her shirt over her head and tossed it aside, "This is awful forward of you detective."
Olivia kissed a blazing trail down Alex's neck and across her bare shoulder, "I don't hear your complaining."
Alex smiled. She knew she would definitely not do any complaining that night.
Olivia gently laid Alex on her back then threaded their fingers together. The detective moved their joined hands above Alex's head. She lowered her head a little toward Alex and when Alex moved up to catch her lips, Olivia pulled back.
"No fair," Alex breathed.
Olivia smiled slyly and dislodged one of her hands from Alex's. Her finger's softly caressed the ADA's cheek before moving to her chin, tilting the blonde's head up. She clasped Alex's hand again as her lips, tongue, and teeth went to work on Alex's now fully exposed neck.
Alex let out a low moan as Olivia lightly ran her teeth down the younger woman's neck. Olivia kissed a pulse point and was smugly surprised to find that Alex's heart was racing.
In an effort to reposition herself and get better leverage, Olivia's thigh rubbed the place between Alex's legs that was quickly growing hotter. Alex let out a gasp. Olivia smiled at this newfound skill and decided to use it her advantage.
As she elicited more moans and gasps, Olivia explored every inch of Alex's body, wanting to remember every taste, every sound, and every touch.
Alex woke up to the sound of someone knocking on her door. She squinted at the clock. It was one minute before her alarm went off. She switched the alarm off so it wouldn't wake up the sleeping beauty next to her. She leaned over and kissed Olivia's bare shoulder
After pulling on her long forgotten boy shorts and a cami she walked to the door. She turned back the deadbolt and swung the door open.
"Abbie?" Alex asked the woman standing in front of her.
"Alex," Abbie stated.
"What are you doing here?" Alex asked.
"I told you I was coming back in the morning," Abbie replied.
"You didn't say where or what time," Alex answered nonchalantly.
"Sorry," Abbie said.
"Well, the ring's in my office," Alex added, "You can pick it up on the way to back to DC."
"So that's a no?" Abbie put her hands in the pockets of her jeans.
"Did you really think I'd say yes after you ran around on me?" Alex asked, "Two years, Abbie. You ran around on me for two years. We lived together."
"I was wrong I know that now," Abbie offered.
"Now is too late," Alex retorted.
Abbie nodded, looking utterly crushed. Alex felt a twinge of guilt in the deep recesses of her heart. Abbie finally spoke after a short silence, "Well, goodbye." She unexpectedly wrapped her arms around Alex who froze then relaxed. "I'll always love you," she whispered. As she pulled away Abbie kissed Alex's cheek. "If you're ever in DC, look me up."
Alex just nodded.
Abbie walked to the elevator and stepped in with once last glance Alex's way.
Alex closed the door and turned to see Olivia standing the hallway watching her. She was leaning on the wall in her bra and underwear. When Alex saw her she walked over and wrapped her arms around the blonde, "Are you okay?"
Alex nodded and lost herself in the warmth of Olivia's embrace. For a moment she forgot all about Abbie and reviled in the feel of Olivia's skin against her own and the way she felt completely safe in the strong arms of the detective.
"You're amazing," Alex whispered before placing one small, chaste kiss on Olivia's neck. She slid her hand into Olivia's own, "C'mon, I'll make you breakfast."
