Title: Heartbeats Chapter 1
Author's Note: These characters aren't mine. If they were, things would be different, and I wouldn't have to worry about paying for college. They belong to Dick Wolf and NBC. Do I have that right? Anyways, the only things I own are almost a dozen textbooks and a laptop I got for my birthday. I no longer own a box of old candy canes because I ate the rest of them today. You can't even begin to imagine the pain.
Author's Note 2: This is a series of moments in time in the lives of Alex Cabot and Olivia Benson told almost completely through dialogue. They follow the same basic order as "Heartbeats: Book 1", but don't really stick to the show. Also, some of the chapters are inspired by songs. I don't own any of those songs or their artists.
Author's Note 3: This is the sequel to Heartbeats: Book 1. You really have to read that one first to understand this one.
Chapter 1: Move in With Me
"Did you hear me?"
"Yes, I did."
"You don't have to answer right now. In fact, let's just pretend that didn't happen."
"Liv, stop worrying."
"You caught me off guard. Of course I want to move in with you."
"So how do we do this?"
"However you want."
"Well, I only have a month left on my lease-"
"Liv, we don't have to figure it out right now."
"You didn't change your mind, did you?"
"Of course not."
"Right now I just want to spend the day in bed with you."
"I don't object to that, Counselor."
"I didn't think you would, Detective."
