Chapter 19

(3 days later)


Mia who had now taken to sleeping with Olivia and Elliot, to be there when the babies woke up in the night, was sat up in bed yawning as she watched her parents try to soothe her crying brother and sister. "Why are they crying?" Mia asked.

"They probably just had a bad dream." Elliot said.

"About what, they're babies?" she asked a little confused.

"Well apparently babies have bad dreams about when they were born. It's a pretty scary time for a baby." Olivia said.

"Oh." Mia accepted as she snuggled back down in bed, but still watching.


Mia had long fallen asleep again and the babies were sleeping too. Elliot and Olivia were now watching them as the snored lightly. The only way they had fallen asleep was both in Olivia's arms with Elliot standing behind her with his arms around them all. They had put them both into the same cot and the twins now slept with their arms practically linking as they faced one and other.

"I think maybe we need a bigger cot." Olivia stated.

"Nah Lizzie and Dickie were the same after they were just born. After a couple of weeks they were happy to sleep in separate cots, so long as the cots were pushed right up against each other." Elliot told her.

They both stood there and continued to watch the babies sleep. Elliot was stood behind Olivia with his chin resting lightly on her shoulder. His arms were wrapped around her waist and she had her arms resting over his. "You know I never thought I would get to see them." she confessed.

"What do you mean?" Elliot asked her.

"First when I thought I was miscarrying and then when Jim…I thought I would never get to look at them or hold them or feed them." she said.

"But you have seen them and held them and fed them." he pointed out. She nodded in agreement and held her sore breasts for a second. Damn right she had got to feed them. "They're here Liv and they're yours." he continued.

"Ours." she corrected him, before turning round to face him, kissing him sweetly on the lips. "So Stabler when you met me in the squad room all those years ago did you really think we would have three kids and a house?" she asked him.

"And a dog…" he added.

"…And a dog." she said smiling as she looked over at Jess who was curled up, fast asleep by Mia.

"Not in my wildest dreams did I think you would want to be with me." Elliot confessed. "You were so beautiful, funny, beautiful, smart, beautiful…" he continued, making her laugh.

"And there was me thinking you didn't want me." she said smiling at him. After all he had been married at the time.

"I've always wanted you. I've never felt what I feel for you. You're my soul mate. I never wanna lose you Liv." he said.

"Good cause you're stuck with us now." she said as she wrapped her arms around him and held him tight, he held her right back, kissing her head as they looked around at their sleeping children.

"I've got something for you." Elliot said as he pulled away from her and walked across the room. He opened up a drawer and then pulled out a small box before walking back over to her.

Olivia just watched him, hoping it contained what she thought it contained. "Elliot." she questioned.

"After I asked you to marry me and you said yes, I decided I wanted to get you the perfect ring. It took me a while but I think I finally found it. I hope you like it." he said as he opened the box up.

Olivia slapped her hand over her mouth as she saw it. It was a silver ring with a diamond in the middle surrounded by 6 littler ones, so that it looked like a flower. It was the most beautiful ring she had ever seen. "El it's unbelievable. This must have cost you a fortune? You didn't have to do this." she said, as much as she loved the ring.

"It didn't cost me anything. It was my Grandmothers and she told me to give it to the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with." he said.

"Why didn't you give it to Kathy?" she asked.

"I loved Kathy and I always will, but my Grandmother told me to give it to someone who I would be truly happy with and could imagine myself being with when I was her and my Grandpa's age." he told her as he slipped the ring onto her finger.

Olivia couldn't help but cry as she looked at the shiny ring on her finger. "Are you sure?" she cried, her voice trembling.

"Yes!" he said firmly as he put his hand on the small of her back and pulled her into him so he could kiss her. They kissed for as long as they could until they both got dizzy from lack of oxygen. They pulled apart only long enough to get a much needed breath. "Love you." Elliot said.

"Love you back" Olivia said before she kissed him back.
