Olivia and another cop is playing dangerous territory by having a relationship that no one can know about for fear of her job. He's safe. He knows that his job is safe but when he knows the policies better than anyone but he loves her too much to let her go, how do they get around the rules with their relationship?
A/N: A very different story from me but I think I have enough people who like my writing to not care about the paring. Some E/O moments but they are ONLY friends
Olivia rolled over as she slowly roused from sleep. She smiled in contentment as she felt the warm body beside her pulling her into his chest.
"Hey you're still here." He whispered sleep thick in his voice.
"Yeah." She smiled. "No call."
"I want to wake with you like this every day forever." He told her as he caressed down her naked rib cage, they'd fallen asleep after going at it like rabbits and neither had gotten up to put any clothes on.
"Me too." She said rolling over so she was lying half over his chest.
Her eyes glanced at the clock and that's when she gasped.
"Oh fuck, shit… fuck I'm dead!" She groaned rolling out of bed and rushing through to the shower.
"Liv?" He called pushing the duvet back and rushing into the bathroom where a very gorgeous and naked Olivia Benson was leaning over his sink with her tooth brush in her mouth.
"I'm shate." She said with her toothbrush implanted between her teeth.
"Want me to call your boss?" He asked stroking his fingers down her shoulders. "Tell him you were on a …special assignment for me?" He continued as his lips went to her neck.
Olivia momentarily couldn't say anything but she managed a moan as his hands snaked to the front of her breasts and tweeked at her nipples.
"No one can know about us… can't risk it." She said breathlessly.
"I know." He sighed dropping his forehead to his shoulder. "The suit you left here last week is in the closet, I'm gonna have a shower."
"Have a good day." She smiled before kissing him lightly.
"Hopefully I'll see you." He winked.
"Personally, as much as I love seeing you all hot and bothered when I do it's at me or Elliot so don't take it the wrong way when I say I hope I don't see you Eddie." She smiled before she walked out of the bathroom and back into the bedroom leaving him with a raging hard on that would have to be dealt with by a cold shower.
"Benson! You're late!" Cragen snapped as Olivia walked into the bullpen with a coffee in her hand.
"Sorry." She replied. "Something was up with the electrics last night causing my clock to reset itself."
"Don't do it again, you and Stabler you've got a DV and an accusation of rape at this address, IAB will meet you there it's a cop and his wife." Cragen said handing over the slip to Olivia who nodded to her partner.
"Let's go." He said the keys in his hand ready and waiting.
Olivia couldn't help but be happy, she would get to see Ed after all and it wasn't because he was mad at her or her partner, that was a nice change.
As they walked to the car Elliot couldn't help but notice a spring in Olivia's step and a sparkle in her eye that had been missing for some time.
"Everything ok?" He asked as she climbed into the passenger seat beside him.
"Yeah why?" She asked a small frown on her brow at the question.
"Nothing you look… you look happy." He smiled, he would be the one as her best friend to notice such a minor detail.
"It's because I am happy El." She smiled as he started the car.
Two hours later Olivia and Elliot were with Ed Tucker showing Officer Montgomery into an interrogation room.
"I've called down for the recording equipment to be brought up here seeing as SVU doesn't have any." Tucker said in his usually pissy attitude which was annoying the hell out of Elliot.
"Well sorry but we find that Victims don't like to tell their story when it's being recorded and if we don't record victims we don't record the perps." He snapped angrily.
"Oh shut the hell up Stabler, you're the last person I want to deal with right now, a decorated officer is being accused of raping his wife and while she's lying in a hospital bed enduring a rape kit he's here to be interrogated now do you want to come in there with me and your partner or do you want to go and sulk in a corner like a little girl?" Ed snapped, he was in a particularly bad mood having been left particularly sexually frustrated that morning by Olivia, and he wouldn't dream of taking it out on her, she had been particularly weary of his motives when he first asked her on a date and he had to promise in writing that if she didn't want a second date nothing would come of it on her end and that her job was safe, the last thing either of them had expected was for them to fall in love with each other.
The three entered the room together, Elliot and Ed stood on either side of Olivia while the recording device was set up and as soon as it had Ed turned to Olivia and gave her an encouraging nod, he wanted her to take the lead to start.
"Officer Montgomery, how many times has your neighbours called the police to your house in the last year?" Olivia asked holding a manila folder in her hand.
"Too many times, they're nosy interfering neighbours, I'm sure you know the type Detective." He replied nonchalantly as Olivia tried to read him as a perp or a cop.
"How many times has your wife been treated in the ER or her Doctors office for abrasions and similar injuries?" Olivia continued.
"I don't know Detective, my wife is clumsy what can I say?" He shrugged and Olivia saw it at once, he wasn't a cop, he was a perp.
"The dates your wife went to the ER or Doctors correlate within twenty four hours of the cops being called to your place Officer, you want to explain that one to me?" Olivia pushed dropping two pieces of paper with the proof on it right in front of him.
"It's a coincidence." He said sliding the papers back to her. "And you have nothing to hold me on if this is all you have."
"You're under arrest, we can hold you for twenty four hours." Ed interrupted and the officer nodded knowing that.
"Ok then let me rephrase, if in twenty four hours that's all you have I will be walking out that door without a second glance. Now I would like a lawyer and a union rep."
On those words the tapes were stopped and the three walked out to meet Don Cragen and Alexandra Cabot.
"He's right." Alex said.
"We know." Olivia sighed running her hand through her hair. "The rape kit isn't back yet, as long as there's evidence of force we'll get him, no man uses a condom with his wife."
"Let's hope your right or Officer Montgomery will be walking out of here with a clean record." Alex replied apologetically. "Call me when you get something." She told Cragen as she slid her briefcase from the table.
"Will do." He nodded as she nodded her goodbye to everyone. "Well I'll sort out his union rep and lawyer, why don't the two of you take a break before Melinda calls with the rape kit results. I guess you'll be sticking around to Eddie?" Don continued.
"Yeah, we'll take another round on him in a bit." Ed said and Cragen nodded.
Elliot went to walk away but hesitated for a moment when he saw Olivia turn to look at their perp. Elliot had never been a fan of Ed Tucker, he didn't trust the man either and so he was uncomfortable leaving his partner alone with him but when Ed turned to the perp too he decided that maybe leaving the two alone wasn't a such a bad idea, just while he made the three of them a well deserved coffee.
Ed saw Elliot leave through the corner of his eye and quickly slipped an arm around Olivia.
"What are you doing?" She asked in a strained whisper as she shrugged away from him.
"Hugging my girlfriend." He shrugged.
"Not here." Olivia sighed.
"Meet me on the roof in five." Olivia smiled with a wink before walking away knowing that he'd be following her in three.
When Elliot returned with the coffee he handed one to Ed and looked for his partner.
"Where's Olivia gone?" He asked Ed suspiciously.
"Said something about a file at home I think, I don't know I wasn't listening to the woman." Ed shrugged before putting his coffee down and heading to the roof, oh if only Elliot knew the truth.
Ed Tucker stepped onto the roof to feel a pair of hands grab him and spin him around. He didn't get the chance to say anything as Olivia's lips crashed into his with some force. He moaned as he wrapped his hands into her brown hair pulling her deeper making her moan with pleasure in reply.
"Fuck Liv." He mumbled into her mouth as her arms caressed his back.
"Ed…" She moaned.
"I love you." He said as he pulled away. "Way too much to have sex with you on the roof of your precinct."
She chuckled softly and wrapped her arms around him in a hug.
"I wasn't planning on having sex with you up here, I just needed to kiss you like that. Can't exactly do that down there." She laughed softly.
"Not if we're going to figure a way to come clean and keep our pensions." He added. "I can't be the your boss and your boyfriend." He sighed.
"It's fucked up." Olivia groaned as he gently caressed her back as she snuggled her cheek into his chest as she held him close to her.
"We'll figure it out Olivia, one step at a time." He told her gently.
"I know, but last night… or this morning… first time I actually got to sleep with you and wake up with you sort of, I mean, I didn't get called in but my day starts before yours apparently." Olivia quipped softly.
"We should go downstairs before your partner sends a search party, he doesn't trust me around you." He chuckled at the last part.
"He shouldn't." Olivia smiled before kissing him slowly and sensually.
"Liv serious, we don't get back down there I will take you up against that wall damn the consequences." He mumbled and she pulled away and walked off leaving Ed to adjust his trousers to hide the throbbing erection she had given him.
That evening Olivia went home to change before meeting Ed at the restaurant he'd made reservations for. She chose a simple navy dress that had no back but high front neck line with a pair of black heels and she put on the simple single diamond drop necklace and matching earrings that Ed had bought her for her birthday the previous month. Once she'd put on some make up and pulled her hair back from her face into a diamante clip she sent him a text to say she was ready and would see him there.
He met her outside the restaurant and even opened the cab door for her to step out of. He couldn't help but look her up and down and smiled brightly at her, he couldn't believe it had taken him this long to see how beautiful she was inside and out.
"Reservation for two under the name Tucker." He said to the concierge, his hand on Olivia's lower back half on her bare skin which sent shivers of pleasure up and down her spine.
"This way sir." The concierge smiled before leading them to their candle lit table.
They were half way through dinner and discussing their case earlier that day when Olivia's phone rang the predetermined ringtone for Elliot that Tucker knew the first few words to because of how often he'd heard it.
"Sorry." She groaned as she reached into her purse and he shook his head, it wasn't her fault, he knew it came with the badge. "Benson." She snapped. "Yeah… ok… no no I'll meet you there, bye." She hung up and sighed heavily.
"Duty calls." Tucker sighed.
"Yeah, gotta go to a crime scene looking like this." Olivia laughed as she pulled on the small black wrap she had.
"You're going to freeze, take my jacket, I'll drive you and drop you off far enough that no one will see me or recognise me." Tucker said depositing enough cash to cover their half-eaten meals.
"Thank you." She smiled and he offered his arm and led her out to his waiting car.
When they arrived at the crime scene, as promised, far enough away that no one would see him he leaned over and kissed her softly.
"Come round if you get done here in time?" He asked her softly.
"If I get done in time, which it isn't likely, it will be early hours." Olivia sighed, she wanted more than anything to go back to his as planned.
"You have a key Olivia." Tucker said. "It would be nice to wake up with you in my arms again."
"Ok." She smiled. "If I get done before you go to work I'll come over." She smiled before kissing him again.
He watched her walk away and sighed as he pressed his hand to his jacket pocket. He felt the box underneath his fingertips and he sighed, this night was obviously not the right night.
"Where the hell were you?" Elliot asked looking his partner up and down as she walked over to him in what was obviously a man's jacket but underneath a very feminine dress.
"Out with my boyfriend." She replied not realising her mistake.
"Your boyfriend? Not just a date?" Elliot asked in shock.
"El… not now." She was almost pleading.
"How long have you been with this guy? Why didn't I know about him?" Elliot asked quickly.
"You didn't know about him because I'm not having you scare this one away." She snapped not answering the first question.
"How long Liv?" He asked again more persuasive.
"Eight months." She whispered.
"Eight months? And I'm finding out about this now?" He was furious, he was her best friend and he felt cheated that he hadn't been allowed to know about this guy.
"El just keep out of it ok? I really like him and… and I honestly think this is going somewhere and the last thing I want is for you to ruin it for me by running a background check or calling them and saying you're FBI or something stupid! Please? Now can we get on with our jobs like grownups?" She was desperate for him to drop it because as his best friend the one thing she couldn't do was lie when she was asked outright and she couldn't tell him yet that her very serious boyfriend was the man Elliot hated.
"Fine." Elliot snapped and he walked Olivia over to the ME and filled her in on the case.
