Eye Candy
what? they are and they know it.

Mandy Moore "I've Got A Crush On You"

You know everything I'm afraid of
You do everything I wish I did
Everybody wants you, everybody loves you
I know I should tell you how I feel
And I wish everyone would disappear
Every time you call me, I'm too scared to be me
And I'm too shy to be me

ADA Alexandra Cabot was trying hard to pay attention to the Detectives in Capt. Cragen's office, while at the same time sneaking glances out of the corner of her eye, at one Olivia Benson. It has been around seven months since Alex had joined the SVU squad as its ADA, since then she has been finding it difficult to keep both her thoughts and her wandering eyes off the gorgeous Detective. Did she have to be so nice and friendly, was a thought Alex had many times.

Ooh, I got a crush on you (crush on you)
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I've got a crush on you (crush on you)

Focusing on the Detectives' evidence so far she shook her head negatively, but promptly assured them that they did in fact enough for a search warrant, and hopefully they would find what they needed for an arrest then. Olivia's casual touch of her arm sent shivers of excitement through Alex which she used all her strength to suppress.

"Thanks Alex," Olivia said, "I've got a good feeling about this."

Exiting the station house as quickly as possible Alex found herself trying in vain to bury herself in paperwork. Her thoughts on the other hand remained steadfastly on Olivia, she sighed in frustration.

Ooh, I wish I could tell somebody
But there's no one to talk to
Nobody knows I've got a crush on you
A crush on you, I got a crush
You say everything that no one says
But I feel everything you're afraid to feel
I will always want you, I will always love you

It wasn't as if thoughts of Olivia were a bad thing, Olivia was after all a good person and an excellent Detective, but Alex seriously needed to get over her hopeless crush on one of New York's Finest. Part of her was saddened that it would go nowhere, that it could go nowhere. Sighing once again Alex focused on her paperwork for the umpteenth time, hoping to at least get some work done.

Ooh, I got a crush on you (crush on you)
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh, I've got a crush on you (crush on you)

Brooks 'n Dunn "There Ain't Nothing About You"

Once I thought that love was something I could never do
Never knew that I could feel this much
But this yearning in the deep part of my heart for you
Is more than a reaction to your touch
It's a perfect passion and I can't get enough

Olivia made her way to her desk and angled the file folder in her hands to be able to surreptitiously catch a few tantalizing glances at the ADA's body as she left Cragens' office minutes after their meeting. Olivia really did have a good feeling that their guy was the perp, touching Alex was an unpremeditated act which she was happy to note wasn't rejected.

Olivia probably should have felt bad about ogling Alex but after their initial introduction, and getting past her first impressions she couldn't help but notice that Alex was indeed a stunning specimen of good genes, and the female form.

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, the way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There's ain't nothing bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me

Out of the corner of her eye she spotted Elliot grinning into his coffee. She shrugged faintly, but kept her eyes on Alex. When she passed the double doors, the partners got out of their desks and headed out too, they had to position themselves for when the search warrant would come through.

In my life I've been hammered by some heavy blows
That never knocked me off my feet
All you gotta do is smile at me and down I go
And baby it's no mystery why I surrender
Girl you got everything

Outside of the station house Elliot left Olivia waiting while he went to collect their car. Spotting Alex again she couldn't help her eyes roving over her body one more time. Sighing she entered the car her thoughts elsewhere. Elliot was singing under his breath and it took her a while to figure out what it was.

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
Your dance, your drive, You make me feel alive

The way you talk, the way you tease
Right now I think you see
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me

"Alex and Olivia sittin' in a tree, K I S S I N G," Elliot laughed when his partner finally got it.

'Oh man,' she thought, 'it was going to be a long day.'

Kenny Chesney "How Forever Feels"

Olivia was at her desk filling out her DD5's. She watched as Elliot talked to his family on the phone, while doing his paperwork. She had caught some really good teasing for her earlier behavior, but considering how the day was ending it was more than okay.

I've been around the block a time or two
done almost everything a boy can do
i've done some livin', yeah, i've had fun
but there is one thing i haven't done

Their perp arrested and taken to Central Booking, all they needed to focus on right now was filling out their paperwork for Alex to go over. With that thought her mind turned to Alex. Sexual fantasies where normal, she knew that, but lately she had found them lacking unless she began to add elements to them, details that used to be considered irrelevant. Now instead of just hot passionate sweaty sex; there were dates, conversations, going to art shows, the museum, thoughts of spending real time together.

saved 2 months, bought a little diamond
tonight's the night, feels like perfect timin'
down on one knee on momma's front steps
man, i'm gonna die if she really says yes
I wanna know how forever feels

She usually shied away from such thoughts, but part of her liked to think of things like that, especially with Alex. An actual life. Thinking of Elliot and Kathy, a hidden part of Olivia couldn't help but want that too. As Elliot left, Olivia sighed and focused on her paperwork again, still wanting to know.

I wanna know how forever feels
hey i wanna know how forever feels
girl i wanna know how forever feels
