The Sum of Contradictions: 21 Charity
By beurre blanc



"Hello, beautiful."


"I've missed you… so much."

"I'm sorry, I think you have the wrong number." Olivia glanced at Elliott. "Second time today." She shrugged apologetically, and climbed into the cruiser.


"I can't stop wondering what you're hiding under that lovely gray turtleneck."

"I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the traffic."

"It wasn't that cold out – it is April for heaven's sake."

"Look, I already gave at the office."

"Hmmm, I know. But charity really begins at home…"

"Thank you for calling – please don't bother me again."

Elliot slowed to a stroll, and looked at his partner. "You OK, Liv?"

"Yeah. Why?"

"Nothing. You seem a little… tense."

"No. I just don't know how these charities get your number sometimes."


"Busy, sweetheart?"

"Kind of."

"What are you doing later?"

"Oh, paperwork, probably."

"And then?"

"Dinner and a shower."


She watched her partner exit the shop and begin crossing the street towards her. "Dessert…"

"Olivia Benson's phone. Oh, hi Alex."

"Elliot." Alex smoothly swallowed her surprise. "Is Olivia there?"

"She's gone to the bathroom, I think. Should I get her to call you back?"

"Yeah, thanks. It's not urgent."

"I'm just gonna check in with Cabot – let her know we're watching Grace Rinato tonight, in case we need another warrant."

"Sure. I gotta go pay a visit – meet you in the car."


"And I thought you'd forgotten me… Dinner's at eight."

"No it isn't. I'm sorry, sweetie, but Grace Rinato's lawyer just let us know we can search her place on Monday.


"Cap thinks she'll take the chance to dump any evidence tonight – so we gotta go sit on her."


"Right now. I'm sorry, sweetie."

"Yeah, me too. Can you come by after?"

"I dunno – it could be late."

"Please? I promise to let you sleep in – at least until six."

"We'll see."

"I love you."

"Love you too. Elliot's coming – gotta go."

"If we don't get moving we're going to be late."

"Please, give me another five minutes. Pleeaase…"

"No. You have to get up."

Olivia's eyes remained resolutely closed, and she rolled from her side to her stomach, face pressed into cool sheets. "I don't want to move," came her muffled response.

"It's time to get up."




Alex slid across the bed, and knelt behind the detective. She leaned forwards, until her lips were almost touching the curve of Olivia's ear, and inhaled her lover's sleepy scent. "O-liv-i-a…"


A whispered smile, "Yesssss."

"Make me."

"Make you what?" Alex breathed, as her lips traced the outer rim of Olivia's ear, and she sucked the lobe into her mouth, flicking it with her tongue.

"Uh… Ummm… " Olivia felt the tingling skin of her neck and the simultaneous flush of arousal between her legs conspiring to derail her train of thought. "…What?"

Alex's response was to move closer, knees straddling the brunette's thighs, allowing only three deliberate points of contact with Olivia's skin: one hand sliding down and forwards, caressing the side of Olivia's breast, and both nipples, taut with anticipation, tracing two lines of desire upwards to Olivia's shoulder blades. Olivia's skin flushed, then tightened into a trail of gooseflesh. As she pulled back Alex couldn't suppress a smile. She leaned in again, this time allowing her tongue-tip to mark the line of Olivia's spine. She crawled slowly backward, pushing her knees between Olivia's thighs, parting them, her tongue never quite losing contact with Olivia's skin. She trailed down onto Olivia's buttock, tongue still caressing wetly, rhythmically licking sensitive flesh. Alex drew her right hand back, and in the instant her mouth released Olivia's skin she let fly with a stinging slap.

"Ahhh… Jesus!" Olivia's back arched, but all other intentions were swamped by the intensity of the unexpected arousal which followed, leaving her clit throbbing and inner walls contracting involuntarily, as the skin of her ass flushed and tingled from the slap. "What did you do that for?" she choked, desire transforming her voice to a husky whisper.

"Get. Up."

Alex began to move off the bed. She had barely shifted her weight when she felt Olivia begin to roll, but even with the advantage of physical height Alex was unable to anticipate quickly enough to avoid Olivia grabbing her wrists as she turned. The detective still lay beneath Alex, but control had nonetheless been wrested from her – Olivia held the attorney in strong hands, and wrapped her legs around Alex's hips and waist, pulling her down to the bed.

She smirked up at the blonde. "No."

Alex allowed Olivia her moment of triumph, before assuming an equally self-satisfied smirk as she pushed her hips deliberately forward, bringing her pubic mound into direct contact with Olivia's. She held still for a moment, staring at the warm bronze flecks in the detective's eyes, quirked an eyebrow in silent challenge, and thrust her hips slowly forward again, this time arching enough that she could feel the lips of her pussy slide slickly against Olivia's engorged clit.

"Oh God…" Big mistake. In spite of having initiated the maneuver, Alex was entirely unprepared for the impact of such sensual movement, and her head fell forward, dominion momentarily lost again, as her body demanded she surrender to a situation of her own making. With a supreme effort she opened her eyes, and looked at Olivia, only to be trapped by the magnetic pull of fathomless brown eyes just inches below. Olivia's breathing was deep, ragged, echoing her own. The two women stared at one another, silently acknowledging both the humor and the eroticism of this most unique Mexican stand-off.

OK, you win. Olivia's slow smile did the talking.

As she felt the grip of Olivia's legs slacken in submission, Alex lifted one knee and moved it over the top of her lover's thigh, before lowering herself again, slowly, eyes focused on Olivia's open mouth, simultaneously drawing her into a searching kiss, and allowing her clit to make direct contact with Olivia's. The brunette groaned into the kiss, overwhelmed by the sensations between her legs, and the delicate mimicry of Alex's exploring tongue. "Oh… Oh God!" Back in control again, Alex sucked on Olivia's lower lip, concentrating now on the slow insistent rhythm she'd set up, rubbing and thrusting against Olivia's sex, rendered unbelievably slippery by the combined evidence of their mutual arousal. She brought one hand down between them, breaking contact long enough to slide two fingers inside Olivia, marveling at the slick tight heat that enveloped them. She thumbed Olivia's clit at double the pace of her thrusting fingers, and slid herself further down the bed until she could replace her thumb's caresses with those of her lips and tongue. Olivia moaned again, and her hips began to push upward to meet Alex's mouth and hand, straining towards release. Olivia felt Alex suck on her clit, rasping it with the tip of her tongue, as her fingers curled forwards, and then she was away, overtaken by a powerful climax, throbbing and contracting against Alex's fingers and mouth.

Alex stilled her tongue for a moment, then extended it to lick upwards again from Olivia's opening and over her clit, pressing flatly against it and rubbing slowly from side to side, and her fingers resumed their rhythmic upward strokes, gathering pace and pressure, demanding and relentless, until at last Olivia's whimpering and sighs became a series of deep inarticulate moans, and Alex felt another, even stronger, wave of contractions grip her fingers. She opened her mouth slowly and lifted away, withdrew her fingers with equal care, then lowered again to offer a gentle parting kiss.

She sat up on her knees and ran her fingers lightly down Olivia's thighs. The detective, motionless and undone, opened dazed eyes, and watched as the blonde crawled forwards, not stopping until she filled Olivia's entire field of vision with a Cheshire cat grin.
