Olivia's house

Olivia's pov:

The guys at work know me pretty well, but they don't know what I go through at home.

I mean, I'm lying here in my bed wondering why I let things get this far, while waiting for the captain to answer the phone.

I just finished an argument with my boyfriend that ended with me hurting and with another bruise.

So like I said, before I'm lying here on the phone. the phone rings again. Then I finally hear him on the other side.

"Captain Cragen," he said

"It's Olivia. I won't be in today," I said hoping he wouldn't ask why.

"Olivia, why?" he asked.

"I caught a bug. I'll be fine," I lied.

"Okay, just get back soon," he said.

"I will you. I'll let you get back to work," I said and hung up before I started to cry.

I called in because I hurt too much to be out on the streets running around working.

A/N one of my reviewers fixed some of my errors so I'd like to thank Liv Cassidy for doing so
