Disclaimer: The song (All I Ever Wanted by Basshunter) and the SVU characters are not mine. Only the brief storyline is. R&R!
Elliot was already home when Olivia came from work. She fished out her key from her purse and opened the door. But what surprised her was a trail of rose petals across the floor leading to the dining room.
She smiled and set her purse on the nearest table. "Elliot?" she called. She laughed silently to herself. "Elliot, I know you're here."
She followed the rose road into their newly refurbished kitchen. Elliot had done some cleaning.
As she turned into the dining room, it sparkled before her eyes.
Elliot was standing at the far end of the wood table, smiling at his wife. "Happy Anniversary," said Elliot. Surrounding him was wine, strawberries, and scattered flowers. Luther Vandross hummed softly in the air.
Olivia smiled again, but bigger. "Oh, Elliot. It's beautiful."
"I'm glad you like it," smiled Elliot.
All I ever wanted was to see you smilin'.
All I ever wanted was to make you mine.
I know that I love you,
Oh, baby, why don't you see that all I ever wanted was you and me?
Olivia could not stop smiling. After all the stress of work, this was the perfect anniversary present. No need to put on evening make-up, squeeze into a fancy dress, and spend unreasonable amounts of money for a portion of a meal. All she needed was some affection and time to love her husband without the judgment of anyone else.
"So now what, Mr. Stabler?" asked Olivia jokingly.
"What would you like to do, Mrs. Stabler?"
"Well, I am hungry."
"Take your pick," said Elliot, motioning towards the desserts. "We've got tasty strawberries, perfect wine, and roses, though their edibility is to be debated."
Olivia slowly walked toward her husband, pretending to closely examine her options. "Hmm," she dragged out. She wrapped her arms around Elliot's neck. "I choose you."
"I choose you, too." Elliot smiled lovingly. He thought about the brief time when he was divorced but hadn't yet had the courage to ask Olivia on a date.
I'm so alone here on my own.
And I've been waiting for you to come.
I want to be a part of you.
Think of all the things we could do.
And every day you're in my head.
I want to have you in my bed.
You are the one.
You're in my eyes.
All I ever wanted in my life.
Elliot put his arms around her waist and said, "Let's go celebrate our anniversary of being successfully married for five years. We can get drunk later."
Olivia chuckled, kissed her beau passionately, and led him to the bedroom, hand-in-hand.
I wish the song had more words, that way I could add more to the story. The chorus repeats more times than normal, so I decided not to add those additional ones.
So I hope this was good, or entertaining in the least. I'd love to hear what you think! I hope everyone's ready for Season 12 of SVU to start! =D I know I am!
