A Secret Life

Chapter Text

Olivia Benson had met Nick Amaro in high school where they had been together for two years until their senior year, where Nick’s family moved to Miami, leaving them miles away from each other and the relationship could not continue. 

A few years later they meet again when they both joined the police training academy, Olivia wanted to join the special victims unit while Nick wanted to join narcotics unit, while training the both realised they wanted to be with each other so restarted their relationship.  Two Weeks Later Nick proposed and Olivia accepted they got married a week later on 5th June 1999.

They kept their marriage secret from everyone as they know their families wouldn’t agree, after five years on narcotics Nick decided to join the army, while knowing it will be hard on both of them but decided that they could make it work and make their marriage stronger.

Nicks training was for eighteen weeks and based in New York, which meant he could be home most nights. They enjoyed the time relishing it as they know straight after training he was being deployed straight to Afghanistan for nine months, this would be over Christmas, but made plans to write and phone each other as much as they could to try and make them being apart easier. They would also send gifts for Christmas and their birthdays.

Soon the day came, where Nick would be deployed away from Olivia, at the airport, they held each other enjoying the little time they had left and although both were upset about being apart. They were also upset that three days before his deployment would end would be their sixth wedding anniversary, but they knew this was part of the line of duty, just as the soldiers were called to board the plane Olivia and Nick shared one last kiss and hug,

Nick said, “I love you Olivia so much keep safe.”

Olivia replied “I love you so much to keep safe and come home” and with that, he was gone.

After leaving the airport, Olivia went straight to work very sad and downbeat, on the plane Nick was feeling the same but both knew that the time would pass quickly and they should try to remain happy as much as they could. Arriving in the 1 6 precinct she went straight to her desk and started on her paperwork, Munch Fin and Elliot noticed her mood and fin decided to try and speak to her.

Fin asked, “What’s up baby girl.”

Olivia replied, “Nothing I’m fine, just want to get my paperwork done.”

The boys looked at each other and were worried but left it. The following day they were on the night shift, and Olivia was in the same mood and doing paperwork which she hated doing,

Elliot went over and sat on the corner of her desk and waited for her to look up and said: “what’s up Liv you know you can talk to me.”

Olivia just stood up and said, “I’m fine Elliot now just leave it.”

And with that, she ran up to cribs and locked herself in and lay down and cried thinking of her husband who was thousands of miles away and should just be landing in Afghanistan

Chapter Text

After about 20 minutes of lying crying in cribs while it was locked her phone started ringing looking down, she saw it was the camp’s payphone she answered it quickly,

Olivia said, “Hey baby.”

Nick replied “hey honey what’s wrong”,

Olivia replied “nothing much just missing you that’s all” and started crying again

Nick said, “Hey sweetie I won't be gone forever and ill write and call you and the time will fly by anyway arrived safely, and I have to go now I love you always bye honey.”

Olivia said “I know baby it is just hard, I will ring you and write to you and I love you always to baby bye keep safe” before hanging up.

She waited a few minutes to stop crying and went and got herself washed up and with a small smile which appeared on her face while talking to Nick even though she was upset she went back downstairs and sat down as she was about to apologise for snapping,

Captain Cragen came out and shouted, “Olivia my office now.”

Olivia said, “Yea Capt.” sighed and got up and went into his office.

Captain Cragen said, “What was that about Olivia.”

Olivia just sighed and said “sorry Capt it’s been a rough few days its fine now though”

Captain Cragen said, “Liv you know if you need to talk you can talk to any one of us.”

Olivia said, “Yeh I know Capt I'll be fine there is nothing to talk about.”

Captain Cragen replied, “Ok Liv just remember that you can go back to work.”

Olivia replied “thanks, Capt.” and went back to her desk, “guys I’m sorry if I’ve snapped it’s been a rough few days I’m fine now and don’t want to talk about it.”

Elliot and Munch said, “Its ok Liv if you need to talk we are here.”

While Fin hugged her, and whispered, “I’m here for you if you want to talk baby girl” just as he finished a case come in, so they went off to work.

A few days later they were all in the bar, with Alex having a few drinks when Olivia went up to get a few rounds in, While the bartender was getting the drinks,

Brian Cassidy stepped up to her and said "hey Livie, how about we get out of here and get something to eat"

Olivia glared at him and said, “it is detective Benson to you, and no I'm not interested."

Brian who had been trying to get her to agree to a date for a few days said: " Oh come on you can't resist me forever, so come on let's go."
He went to grab her hand she moved it out the way punched him in the face, and said “yes can, no leave me alone" with this she took the drinks to the table.

Everyone at the table said, “what was that Liv."

She replied " he wouldn't take no for an answer, think he will now” they all laughed.

It had been three weeks from that phone call when Olivia got home to find a letter waiting for her from Nick saying

Dear Livie

I miss you, I’m not sleeping well without having you laying in my arms, but I’m getting ok with it even though I hate it, I miss seeing your beautiful face and cuddling with you and hearing you laugh, I miss waking up with you in my arms with your hair spread out on the pillow.

Work is very stressful at the moment we’ve lost a few men and had a few explosions don’t worry I am fine I was nowhere near any of them were, I can't say too much about work apart from the heat is very stifling.

I love you forever and always keep safe

You Nicky

Xxxx

Olivia re-read it five times and then held it to her chest then she decided to write back saying

Dear Nicky

I miss you tooI’m not sleeping well without being in your arms either, I miss your handsome face and feeling safe in your arms weather were sleeping or cuddling. And I miss hearing you laugh too.

Work is ok I snapped at them the first two days till I spoke to you it helped a bit but I was still down capt then called me into his office to ask what’s wrong I just said nothing, but he said if I need to talk I can which is nice the lads said the same. But am getting used to it and when I’m struggling, I bury myself in work, so I don’t have to go home and miss you more.

We all went out to the bar at the end of the week, where this guy who wouldn't take no for an answer tried hitting on me again I ended up punching him, my hand was sore for a few days but fine now.

While at work or out with the gang I put my rings on my necklace and tuck it into my top and then they are close to my heart as you have my heart and I love you with it all.

I love you forever and always keep safe

You’re Livie

With that, she wrote the envelope placed the letter in it and sealed it, and posted it on her way to work.

Chapter Text

As she arrived at work, Olivia thought it would just be another average day at the office, when they got a call apart a murder of a young girl, after clearing the scene and delivering the evidence, while they were trying to find out who it was,

Olivia got a phone call looking at the number she ran to cribs shouting “come and grab me if we get anything” answering the phone she said, “Hey baby.”

Nick replied, “Hey honey, how are you.”

Olivia said, “God I’ve missed your voice and ye I’m fine what’s wrong you weren’t due to ring till later.”

Nick replied, “calm down I’m fine it’s just there was a blast on the campsite, and I didn’t want you to panic if you saw the news I was away from it but still got thrown I have a few broken ribs, but I’ll be fine are you in work.”

Olivia croaked with tears in her eyes “god baby I can’t believe it I’m so glad you’re ok though make sure you take the pain meds.”

Nick replied with an eye roll knowing she couldn’t see “I’m will now how have you been really”

Olivia replied “I’ve been fine works going as well as possible, but I miss you loads captains a bit worried about the extra overtime I’ve been putting in and stuff as I haven’t been this bad in a while”,

as she broke down crying realising the last time she was like this they had split up for a week over a petty argument which she still blamed herself for,

with a sigh, Nick replied, “ Livie baby listen to me that wasn’t your fault ok and look it made us stronger, and here we are four years later anyway have you started planning the redecoration of the flat.”

Olivia replied, “ye I have, the bathroom is done I’m just looking at the colours to start the spare room.”

Just then Elliot came in and told Liv they had a lead with a sigh she told him she be down in a minute she then turned her attention back to her phone call and said: “I’m sorry baby I wish I had more time to speak with you, but we got a lead.”

Nick replied, “I know honey listen we will speak soon and right remember I love you forever and always and keep safe.”

Olivia laughed at the last bit then said “yeh I know its eight months and one week to go I love you forever and always to miss you bye baby” and with that, she hung up and ran back downstairs

In the car, Elliot was confused as to why she was being, so secretive, and Olivia was quietly thinking over her conversation with Nick and how much worse it could have been as they arrived there suspect started running and coming to some stairs just as Liv was near to grabbing him,

Elliot said “hey Liv who was that you were talking to and why are you so secretive about it”,
As they reached the stairs

She said, “Elliot just drop it will you.”

Just as she said this With Elliot distracting her, the suspect managed to knock into her causing her to fall down the stairs. Elliot called for a bus at seeing Livs motionless body and arrested the suspect and called for backup.

Chapter Text

Olivia woke up in the hospital and immediately moaned for Nick and inwardly sighed when she saw Elliot sat near her,

Elliot immediately spotted that she was awake and pressed the call button for the doctor and said:” hey Liv I’m so glad you’re ok.”

just then the doctor came in and said: “ you’ve given us quite a fright Miss Benson, you have sprained your left ankle badly so, please be careful on it you have a few bruises and broken ribs and a concussion you are free to go I’ll just go get the release papers.”

And with that, he was off when he was talking Olivia was silently saying that is Mrs Amaro and wanted to laugh at the broken ribs thing.

She then turned to Elliot and said: “hey El have you got my phone.”

Elliot replied “yeh it's here why” as he passed her the phone

Olivia said “no reason” as she went to her notes section to see if it would be ok to call Nick when checking the times against the time she realised that she could, she then asked Elliot if he could get her a drink from the cafe once he was out the door

She immediately dialled Nick’s number he answered: “hey honey is everything ok.”

Olivia replied, “Yeh its fine got into a bit of a struggle with a suspect though.”

Nick panicked wondering how severely she was injured, so he asked: “Livie are you injured are you ok.”

She replied, “Nicky calm down its fine just a badly sprained ankle a few bruises concussion and some broken ribs.”

Nick laughed at that and said “ missed me that much you decided to copy my ribs” and then went series and said, “ Jesus Christ Liv you scared the hell out of me I’m so glad you’re not too badly injured, do to you want me to see if I can come home.”

Olivia replied, “no baby it’s ok anyway I must go one of the team will be back soon. I love you forever and always bye baby.”

Nick replied “ok get better soon and keep safe. I love you forever and always” just as she hung up the doctor came in.

The doctor said, “Miss Benson we can’t seem to get hold of your full notes to be able to release you.”

shit,she thought and said, “they will be under Olivia Amaro but please don’t tell my other visitors and please continue to call me Miss Benson although I’m legally Mrs Amaro” she sighed inwardly and wondered whether they should reveal it all so not to worry about the name and to have to keep quiet about their marriage.

Just then Elliot comes back with Captain Cragen, who said: “you’ll be on desk duty until your healed Olivia.”

Olivia just rolled her eyes and said: “yeh that's fine Capt.”

Just then the doctor walked in and said: “miss Benson you are ready to go once you’ve signed the release forms here is your painkillers, please remember to take them.”

Olivia signed the form and got up with the help of Elliot and walked out ready to go back to the precinct.

Elliot asked, “do you want to go home or to the precinct.”

Olivia replied,” I want to go to precinct catch up on my paperwork.”

Elliot replied, “Ok precinct it is”.

When they arrived back at precinct Fin, and munch were both there and immediately said: “Liv are you ok?”

She said “Yeh I’m fine guys just a sprained ankle and a few broken ribs.”

Both laughed and rolled their eyes knowing what she is like. Olivia sat down and got on with work knowing it would be a long few weeks.

Chapter Text

It had been a few weeks since the incident, and Olivia was all healed and was going back to full duty that night while sitting eating breakfast the post came, and she spotted a letter from Nick, so she left all the others on the side and went and sat on the sofa to read it said

Dear Livie

Hope you are ok and healing well, my ribs are all healed well, and I’m doing fine. Work is getting busy now, and I’m really sorry for not being able to ring or write to you as frequently, but I’ll try too when I can. I know in a few days that I’ll be going on a mission and I won’t be able to ring or write due to being on a mission which means complete radio silence and no contact with anyone. I’m really sorry I didn’t want to do this, but I had no choice as soon as I’m back from the mission and debriefed ill ring you straight away

I really do miss you honey, and I can't wait to see you, its 7 and a half months now. I love you forever and always

Keep safe

Love you’re Nicky

She also noticed that he included a recent photo.

Olivia sighed and thought about how hard the next three weeks and a half weeks were going to be hard, but she knew that she would have to be strong with that she grabbed a pen and paper to write her reply letter which said

Dear Nicky

I am ok and have healed well I am glad that you’re alright, work has been tedious due to being on desk duty but I have all my paperwork done, and I am going back to full duty tonight. I know I’ll try to keep safe, I know it’s not your fault, and you have to do what you have to do in the line of duty, and I’ll know you’ll ring me as soon as you can. These next few weeks will be hard but I know we will make it threw and it will make us stronger.

I miss you to baby, and I can't wait to see you either love you forever and always.

Keep safe

Love your Livie

With this she put in a recent picture and sealed the envelope and placed a kiss on it and got it ready to send, after this she sat and traced the outline of his image before putting it in her pocket to keep with her.

Olivia continued to eat her breakfast then went and got ready for work before leaving for work, on her way to work she posted the letter arriving at the precinct she went straight to her desk unlocked it and placed the picture in there and locked it up and sat down.

Just as she sat down at her desk, Elliot walked in and asked: “hey Liv how are you.”

She replied, “Yeh I’m fine looking forward to getting back to work properly.”

With that, they carried on with paperwork until Captain Cragen came in and said “Liv, Elliot new case rape victim down at mercy.”

And with that, they went straight to the hospital to start with the case the case took a few days to complete which was ok for Olivia as it helped pass the days knowing Nick was on radio silence so couldn’t contact her.

The following weeks went past quickly till it was the day nick could finally contact her again after his debriefing he rang her,

Olivia was in the squad room so went up to cribs and sat down before answering with “hey baby.”

Nick replied with "hey honey I’ve just got your latest letter and picture you look beautiful, and I agree it has been hard, but I’m glad we have survived are you ok?”

Olivia replied “ good and yeh I received yours too, and you look handsome it’s in my locked desk drawer while I’m at work, and I’m good been a bit overrun with work so not had much time to think while at work but when i am at home I miss you so much are you ok.”

Nick said, "yes I’m ok, listen baby is it ok if I go shower and get some sleep and ring you in a few days.”

Olivia replied “yeh baby that ok I’ve got to go back to work I miss you just six months and three weeks to go I love you forever and always”

Nick replied, “Yeh I know I miss you too and I love you forever and always as well by honey.”

And with that, they hung up, and Olivia went back to work while Nick went for a shower and to go to bed.

Back in the squad room Olivia went and poured herself a coffee before sitting at her desk to get on with paperwork with a smile on her face,

Fin looked up and asked, “Who was that baby girl.”

Olivia blushed and replied, “Oh it’s no one.” 

So Fin asked, “So what got you smiling so much then.” 

She replied, “What am I not allowed to smile then?”

Fin replied, “well yeh it’s just that we haven’t seen you smile much these last few weeks” with that they both went on with their paperwork.

The weeks passed till all off a sudden it was four months to go, they had continued their letters and phone calls, and both knew they know had halfway left. Today was the 21stFeb and Olivia’s birthday she woke up to texts from friends who were mainly colleagues at work, wishing her happy birthday. As she walked into the living room, the postman knocked on her door with a parcel and her post she placed the package on the sofa and looked through the post finding nothing of interest she opened the package.

Inside the parcel was a card, wishing her a happy birthday from nick and a present which was a bracelet which on the front had my Livie and on the back it had to love your Nicky she immediately put it on smiling and then spotted a letter in the parcel which said

She then placed the letter in an envelope and sealed it with a kiss and put it ready to post and then got ready for work.

After posting the letter, she arrived at the precinct, to wishes of happy birthday and cards and the presents' of the guys,

Alex was also there and spotted her bracelet and asked “hey liv who you get the bracelet from “

Olivia replied “just a friend” while thinking just a friend who is also my husband they then got back to work.

Halfway through the shift her phone ringing so she answered it without looking at who it was “Benson.”

Nick just laughed and said, “Shouldn’t you be using Amaro now.”

Olivia just laughed and said "give me a minute" then she just ran up to cribs when she was there she said, “hey baby sorry I didn’t look at the id.”

Nick replied, “Its ok honey it’s just a quick call to say happy birthday.”

Olivia replied, “Thank you, baby; I loved my bracelet.”

Nick replied, “It's ok. I thought you would anyway I better go I miss you and love you forever and always bye.”

Olivia replied “I miss you too and I love you forever and always bye baby” and hung up with that she went down to the squad room.

Arriving back in the squad room Olivia overheard Alex asking “does anyone know who she’s speaking to”

All three replied “no.”

Then Elliot said, “She has been like it for months she’s sad for a while then she’ll get a phone call and be happy we have tried asking her, but she says she’s ok and its nothing”.

Olivia then walked and said, “guys its nothing, seriously I’m fine, and it’s just a friend” with that she went back to work.

After they had all finished work, they went out to the local bar Fin got the first round in, once they all had their drinks he said: “to Liv, Happy birthday baby girl."

They all replied “Happy birthday Liv."

Olivia replied, “thank you."

Alex said, “what did you get then."

Olivia smiled and said, “apart from cards, a drunken phone call from my mother, I got a Scarf and Dress, off some friends I went to high school with, this bracelet, and the stuff off you guys."

Just then her phone went she answered with “Benson."

Robin said, “shouldn’t it be Amaro now."

She laughed and said, " hey Robin and not you as well."

Robin laughed and said, “you spoke to him today then and didn't check caller id."

She smiled and said, “yes I did, say hi to Millie for me."

Robin said, “how did you know she was here."

Olivia burst into laughter and said “seriously, you two were inseparable in school and the last time we all met up"

Robin said “fine I admit it we are together, happy birthday."

Olivia smirked and said, “about damn time and Thank you, Thanks for the Scarf and Dress assumed Millie picked it out."

Robin said, “Yeh she did, she said she is sure your husband will enjoy the full benefit when he gets back."

She blushed bright red and said loudly “Robin Lee Smith, Amelia Marie Edwards,"

Millie said, " oh come on Liv you know it's true, Happy birthday."

Olivia said, “thank you and thanks for the presents. I've got to go as I am out with the guys from work. I'll speak to you soon."

Millie and Robin said “bye Liv."

Olivia hung up the phone and said “sorry about that guys."

Alex said “Liv your bright red you ok."

Olivia replied, " yeh, we've been friends since school, they're just trying to embarrass me."

With this they spent the next few hours, talking and having drinks and also food before they went there separate ways.

The weeks went by until it was the 1st of May and Nick’s birthday at base camp in Afghanistan, Nick was eating breakfast

When a colleague Amy came over and said: “Nick you have a parcel here.”

Nick replied “thanks, Amy.”

Then cleared up and went back to his dorm to have a bit of privacy. Opening it he saw, a card inside which said happy birthday love Livie and a present that was a bracelet which had on the front my Nicky and on the back love Olivia, he immediately put it on and noticed a letter inside the package. That said

Nick then grabbed a pen and paper and wrote a letter back which said

I am fine, and I’m glad you are ok. Just to let you know I’ll phone you at the end of the week as I can't do it before, but this is the last mission with radio silence. I miss you too and I know I can't believe it’s nearly over then I’ll be with you and have you in my arms.

I love you forever and always,

He then sealed it and got it ready to send on his way back to work.

Olivia was in the squad room working on a case when her phone rang she answered “Benson.”

Nick replied, “I thought we settled that it’s Amaro.”

Olivia laughed and said, “hey and yeh we did; I can't stay long were working on a case but happy birthday.”

Nick replied, “thank you honey, and it's ok ill leave you to go then I love you forever and always.”

Olivia replied, “Remember forever and always.”

And with that, she hung up knowing he would understand she meant to add 'I love you' instead of ‘Remember’ she went back to work.

The following day while at work Olivia popped into captain Cragen office and shut the door he looked up, and she said: “I need to book the weekend of the 4th June off.” 

He asked, “Why Liv is everything ok.”

She replied, “yeh everything’s fine; just a friend is coming to visit, and I wanted to spend time with them.”

He replied, “Ok you can have both of those days but remember if it gets too bad here and we need you in ill have to call you.”

She replied, “Yeh I know Capt. before going back to work.”

The next 33 days went quickly, and soon it was the 4th of June, and Nick was coming home.

Olivia woke up happy knowing she was seeing Nick and that it was the 4th anniversary tomorrow. But with the fact, she could keep her wedding rings on without having to take them off or hide them while in work. She then got up and changed and left for the airport after making her way to departures she stood to wait with other families.

As soon as she saw him and once it was clear too, she ran up to him and jumped into his arms and kissed him passionately after breaking for breath,

She whispered, “I love you forever and always Mr Amaro.”

He whispered back “I love you forever and always Mrs Amaro” with that he let her down and they made their way home.

Arriving home he showered and changed, and they both sat cuddling on the sofa and chatting, they then had something for lunch and watched a few movies, later on, they ordered Take away and watched another film before both going to bed and curling up and falling asleep.

The next morning Nick woke up and watched her sleep until she woke up he then leaned down and kissed her. He then passed her, her card and gift, the card which said to Livie happy anniversary honey four amazing years love Nicky, and her gift was a new locket with a picture of their wedding photo and one of them taken just before his tour of duty,

He said “Happy Anniversary Honey."

She smiled said "thank you happy anniversary Baby" then leant up and kissed him.

She then handed him his gift and card, which said to Nicky happy anniversary baby four wonderful years love Livie and his gift was a new watch which was inscribed Nicky forever and always Livie. He leant down and kissed her then remained cuddled up till they got up, they spent most of the day curled up together on the sofa.

Nick said, "Livie go get dressed wear a dress I'm taking you out."

They both got dressed; Olivia wore her new Dress from Millie and Robin, which was a knee-length Wrap around dress in Black with a low neckline, s with black heels and a cardigan, while he wore trousers and a shirt.

They left and went out of the city to a restaurant, They eat the meal, during pudding Nick said: "Livie these Last four years, with you being my wife has been the happiest of my life I love you so much, Happy anniversary."

Olivia smiled and said, "Nicky they've been the happiest of my life. I love you so much to Happy Anniversary."

With this they finished the pudding, they paid their bill and got a taxi home, once home they went straight to the bedroom, where he pinned her up against the door and started kissing her, and they went to bed and made love.

They spent the following day in bed, and she was glad she wasn’t called in.

The following years continued by in the same sort of manner, them spending as much time as they could together when he was home and when he was on tour they would write and call each other as much as possible.

The guys and Alex and then Casey were all worried when she was sad and with the secret phone calls, but Olivia kept insisting she was okay. During the years Nick had been promoted to lance corporal, and then corporal and Olivia was very proud of him. 

They had decided that after his last tour they would make it public knowledge, that they were married as by then they would have been married for 12 years. About two weeks before he was due to be deployed he was at base camp and had been promoted to Sgt when he returned home Olivia was there and was upset over Elliot just up and leaving after the previous day’s events of him having to shoot a teenager. But she smiled and congratulated nick when he told her of his promotion.

Chapter Text

The following week they were at the airport again ready for Nick to go on his last tour they were waiting in departures, just then they were called nick kissed Olivia and said “I love you forever and always keep safe, I’ll miss you but remember this is the last time”,

Olivia replied “I love you forever and always to keep safe I’ll miss you too and yeh I know bye” with that they shared one final kiss and Nick was gone and Olivia had to go to work.

Olivia arrived in the squad room in a happy mood but also sad; they now had a new detective Amanda Rollins she been working there for a week and noticed that Olivia wasn’t in the usual upbeat mood, so she asked Olivia “hey Liv are you ok.”

Olivia replied, “Yeh I’m fine why.”

Amanda replied, “just you're not your usual upbeat self”.

Olivia just said “I’m fine” and with that, she sat down,

Munch said, “This is usual she will be up and down for the next nine months it’s been happening every year for the last five years.”

Olivia just said “guys I’m fine I don’t know what you’re on about” and went back to work.

Just then they had a new case which gave Olivia something to concentrate on even though this was the 6th time Nick was on tour, it didn’t make it easier to cope with, and she was glad it was his last tour.

The next evening she was in the squad room when Nick rang she said "I’m up in cribs come to get me if you need me" and with that, she went up to cribs, once she got there she sat on one of the beds and answered with “hey baby.”

Nick replied, “Hey honey just ringing to let you know I arrived safe, and I miss you already.”

Olivia replied, “I’m glad you got there how your flight was, and I miss you too”.

Nick replied to that with “it was a bit rough, but ok I have to go sorry honey” Olivia was about to reply when

Amanda came up and said, “Hey we have a case.”

Olivia replied, “Ok give me two minutes”. Amanda left, and Olivia said to Nick “I’m sorry baby I have to go to, I love you forever and always, and I miss you keep safe”,

Nick replied “I love you forever and always and I miss you too, Keep safe honey” and with that, they hung up and both went back to work.

When she arrived in the squad room, she had a big smile on her face as she got there munch and fin looked up and said together “see Amanda told you.” 

Amanda just said “ok.”

And Olivia just rolled her eyes and said “what’s the case then.” and they then got to work on it.

This carried on for the next nine months with letters and phone calls when they can about three weeks before he was due home Nick rang Olivia who was at work doing urgent paperwork as they had a few cases’s the past few days, so she needed to catch up,

Olivia answered “Benson.”

Nick just laughed and said, “Hello Mrs Amaro.”

Olivia smiled and looked around the room. Everyone else was busy talking in the corner, so she answered: “Hello Mr Amaro.”

Nick said, “Honey it’s just a quick phone call to let you know these next two and a half weeks I’m going to be out of contact with you. I’m really sorry”.

Olivia replied, “Hey it's ok baby, it will be hard, but I know I get you to myself in three weeks”.

Nick said, “Yeh I know I can’t wait no more tours of duty. I have to go I miss you, and I love you forever and always”.

Olivia after double checking that everyone was still busy replied: “I know and I miss you, and I love you forever and always to bye baby”, and with that, she hung up with a smile on her face.

Olivia had finished her final piece of paperwork when she finished her phone call with Nick; she spotted the others all chatting she walked up to them and said: “hey guys what you are talking about”.

They all said “nothing”. She just shrugged this off, Fin then said: “hey baby girl who were you on the phone to as you’ve been smiling since you answered it, you got yourself a new boyfriend.”

Olivia replied, “Nah it’s just a friend I haven’t spoken to in a while”. While thinking “no don’t need one have my lovely husband instead.”

Fin replied, “Ok if you say so.”

Olivia then looked at the clock and saw they were due to finish shift and said “hey you guys want to go for a drink”.

They all said “I’m in” she also invited captain Cragen, Alex, Casey and Melinda who all agreed to come.

After a while, they all drank so when fin said: “Hey baby girl you going to tell us what’s going on with you.”

Olivia said, “What do you mean.”

Fin said, “Well for the last six years your mood alters a lot for nine months each year, and you take your phone calls upstairs.”

Olivia just shrugged and said “nothing’s wrong and it’s just a friend I speak to”

They all just looked at her and Alex said: “you can tell us you know if you have a new man.”

Olivia just replied, “Honestly I don’t have a new man” they left it at that and Olivia couldn’t wait for these next three weeks.

Two and a half weeks later Nick hadn’t returned to camp, the following day Olivia was at home when a knock on the door came, when Olivia opened the door there were two military officials there.

Chapter Text

One of the military officials said, “Are you, Mrs Olivia Amira Amaro.”

Olivia replied, “Yeh I am is Nick ok.”

the military official replied, “ we don’t know he hasn’t returned from his mission and we can’t find him at this precise moment we are reporting him as missing in action were very sorry when we know more we will let you know.”

Olivia replied “thank you” and shut the door and then crawled into bed and cried and wishing that Nick was ok she then decided to keep her rings on her left hand even at work until Nick come home as she wanted to feel the connection with him. Later on, Olivia went to work but kept her cardigan on as the sleeves covered her hands and hid her wedding rings, as she didn’t want any questions she also wasn’t in the best of moods, but no one said anything to her.

Three days later, on the morning, Nick was due to fly out they rang her and said they had no news and as soon as they find him they will send him straight home. Olivia was still upset and was mentally praying that they found him she went to work and the next day when the time came for his flight to land, she grabbed his picture from the draw and said: “I’ll be up in cribs for five minutes.”

They all replied “ok” but was worried about her,

Olivia went and sat down and cried and kissed her rings and then the picture of him and said “I hope your ok Nicky and you come home soon” she then washed her face and returned to the squad room and carried on with work.

What Olivia didn’t know was they had found him, and he was ok bar being battered and bruised when they explained they had reported him missing in action and had phoned Olivia that morning to say they still hadn’t found him. He asked for them not to let her know as he wanted to surprise her and it meant she wouldn't be worried when he told her he had been captured and beaten. He was put on the flight back with the other soldiers going home.

Thirty minutes after his flight landed Olivia had a frown on her face and was doing paperwork, when Nick arrived in the squad room he spotted her and said: “Mrs Amaro what is that sad face for.”

Everyone looked up confused, but Olivia looked up shocked when she heard his voice when she saw him she smiled then got up and ran over to him and hugged him and kissed him passionately everyone in the squad room was shocked,

Fin shouted, “Hey baby girl we thought you didn’t have a new man.”

Olivia just laughed then said to Nick “how they said you hadn’t been found yet.”

Nick said “I was captured and managed to escape arrived back 10 minutes before the flight was due to leave I asked them not to ring you as I wanted to surprise you and don’t worry I’m fine just bruised. She smiled kissed him again and said: “I’m so glad you’re ok”.

Alex and Casey said together “Oi! Liv are you going to introduce us to your new man”.

Olivia just laughed turned around and pulled him into the squad room further to where Fin, Munch, Amanda, Capt. Cragen, Alex, Casey and Melinda was and said: “guys this is my husband Nick Amaro, Nick this is Fin, Munch, Amanda, Alex, Casey Melinda and Capt. Cragen.”

Everyone was shocked, and Alex said “wait, Liv you're married? Since when and why didn’t you tell us you were getting married?”

Olivia just smiled and said “yes i have been for 12 and half years, and I didn’t say I was getting married as I didn’t know you all then.

Nick said “hey Mand long time, no see,"

Amanda said, “Hey Nick, this is the mystery wife you were talking about then."

Nick said “yes it is, oh Mikey said to give you this and to tell you that he loves you and will see you soon" he then handed her a letter and present

Olivia said “wait for you to know each other"

Nick said, "yeh you remember me telling you about that Goby blonde bimbo that joined our group 5 years ago well Goby blonde bimbo is Amanda she married Mikey two years later."

Amanda said, “Nick that hurts, I am not Goby or a bimbo, and it was 12 weeks later, we just didn't announce it until two years later.”

Nick smirked and said, “tell hubby that he was the one who gives you the nickname he also said that if I see his Goby wife to give you the letter and present and tell you, he loves you."

Alex replied, “So how come we never knew either of you was married then.”

Olivia sighed and said “ it’s a long story, but basically we were together as teenagers, and when his parents found out they moved away, I didn’t see him till we were both in the academy we got together and then got married. We haven’t told many people as his family don’t like me, and we didn’t want the trouble, but we were going to tell you today I was going to invite you all to the pub and tell you then, but someone decided to go missing in action then show up here and surprise me.

Amanda said “it just hasn't come up yet plus he is on a longer deployment then usual as a dare this idiot" she pointed at nick "and his friends set him last time backfired, so he has to do another two weeks either end of his tour."

Chapter Text

Nick decided to stand up for himself in the conversation and said: “hey it’s not my fault I said it as a joke it's not my fault Mikey and the others thought I was serious and I didn’t choose to do it and I didn’t mean to scare you, honey.” With this, he wrapped his arms around her waist and rested his head on her shoulder,

Casey and Alex both went “aww how cute” both Olivia and Nick laughed.

Captain Cragen said, “Its end of shift how about we all go down the pub and continue this there.”

They all said, “yeh capt.”

Olivia turned to Nick and said, “Are you up for going, baby?”

Nick replied “yeh honey it's fine” and kissed her.

Everyone was shocked at how Olivia was acting no one, saw her act like this and could see the love between the pair.

The group of nine arrived at the bar and ordered drinks and sat down,

Nick turned to Olivia and said “honey do you want me to undo your necklace so you can put your rings on”

she turned to nick and said “I’m wearing them have been since I was told you were missing in action it somehow made me feel closer to you” Nick just hugged her then took his necklace off and put his ring back on.

Alex said, “If you’ve been wearing them how come no one’s seen them.”

Olivia laughed and said jokingly “because you’re all blind” at the look on their faces she started laughing and said, “because I’ve been wearing long sleeve cardigans, so my hands have been covered.”

Casey said, "Well let’s see them then."

Olivia pulled her sleeve up and showed them her rings and said: “my wedding ring has forever and always inscribed on it, and Nicks has”.

They decided to order food so placed their orders, then Olivia said “guys I would also like to apologise for my moods over the last 6 years and being secretive with the phone calls, but I’ve been like it as Nick has been on tour in Afghanistan for nine months every year for the last six years. I was secretive about the phone calls most of the time or not saying much on them because we didn’t want people finding out”.

Fin said “it's ok Liv we now know about you pair so we can understand”

They all said, “Yeh what he said”. 

Olivia sighed and said, “thanks, guys it’s a shame Elliot’s not here so he can know why I was like that”.

They all nodded in agreement.

Melinda said, “So if you were, being secretive what was your wedding like then.”

Nick spoke up and said, “It was just a small do with just us two and two friends who have known us since school and also didn’t agree with what my parents did, Olivia did get her white dress though”. 

Melinda replied, “Aww that sounds amazing”.

Olivia replied, “Yeh it was I don’t think I stopped smiling the whole day I’ll have to bring the album in tomorrow”.

The food had come by then so they were all eating and speaking when Fin said: “baby girl if you didn’t want your family’s finding out why are you being open with it now”.

Olivia replied, “We both decided it was time and were not going to worry what they have to say, as nothing’s going to change we both love each other and want to spend the rest of our lives together and they're not going to change that”.

Fin replied “aw baby girls gone all lovesick” Olivia just laughed and playfully punched him.

Olivia said," Hey Nick what was this prank that caused Mikey extra deployment time."

Nick smirked and said "we had this new c/o covering for us last time, and he was a right bastard, I said it would be nice if we could get our on back by pranking him and videoing it, I was joking, but the others took it seriously. The next week, while I was off as I broke my ribs, they had pranked him, something to do with egging his office, and flouring it and also sneaking into his dorm and hanging his boxers out the window like a flag."

Everyone burst into laughter and Amanda said while laughing “oh my god, he did that, even though it was hilarious, he told me it wasn't that bad, I think I'll have to kill him, especially as his last major prank caused our relationship to be leaked."

Nick just smirked and said “hey to be fair; he didn't think the whole camp would hear it,"

Olivia smiled and said "wait this wasn't when we were on the phone, and across the tannoy, you could hear him saying "my beautiful wife I really do love you, you know and then hearing someone say to Mikey I'm going to kill you."

Amanda blushed bright red and said “wait you heard that, I only thought it was the camp, I'm going to kill him, and you Nick, you promised no one else would know,"

Nick smirked and said “hey I said I wouldn't tell no one, which I didn't you and Mikey did"

Amanda laughed and said, "Did you tell Liv the time you fell off the roof prating around."

Olivia said, “wait when did you fall, off a roof."

Nick said " about three years in, I did tell you but I think I told you it was a tank as I was still drunk and at the time I did think it was a tank and the others were laughing, it was Manda’s fault anyway she got the alcohol."

Amanda said, “don’t blame me, you didn't have to drink, and it was hilarious, and we were trying to get you down."

Olivia went to say something, and Nick said: "yes I know I could have got hurt, but at least I didn't injure my ribs to copy my partner."

Fin said, “wait you injured your ribs to copy him."

Olivia laughed and said "no remember when I broke my ribs, and badly sprained my ankle and got a concussion when I fell down some stairs while chasing a suspect cause Elliot and I were arguing"

Fin said, “yeh about five years ago."

Olivia said " yeh, well I found out that morning, that Nick had been in a blast and broke his. Elliot was trying to find out what I was hiding, he would take nothing as a response, and we were just about to catch the suspect, and I said ‘Drop it El’, and that was when the suspect ran into me and caused me to fall.".

Everyone laughed, and Olivia said, “that not as bad as falling off a roof, you could have been seriously hurt."

Nick said, “least I didn't fall through a roof."

Olivia groaned and said, “I thought we agreed not to mention that."

Munch said, “what happened Liv."

Nick said, "We had gone out after curfew, we were sneaking her back into her room, and she was walking across the roof to the ledge to pull herself up and threw her window and fell through and broke her wrist."

Olivia said, “yeah thanks, Nick."

Nick said "you're welcome sweetie, remember I'm sure you have stories to tell the boys in the unit, and even though I've left, now you know Mikey's wife I'm sure you will tell them her to get her to pass them on or seeing how close you and Jamie-Lee are you will just tell her"

Olivia replied, “me, do that.”

Nick smirked and said "damn straight you would Olivia Amira Amaro", and then he kissed her,

They spent the time talking about her and nick. They were all talking about work,

When Munch said, “hey Nick if you have left the army, what are you going to do now?”

Nick said, “Well I was a detective before at the time I was in the narcotics unit, so I think I’m going to go back and be a detective again

Captain Cragen said, “Would you consider SVU?”

Everyone turned to look at him, and Nick said: “yeh I would why.”

Captain Cragen replied, “Well there is a job for you if you want it”.

Nick replied, “Yes please thanks, Capt.”

Captain Cragen said, “Pop in tomorrow with Olivia, and we will get everything.”

Olivia just smiled up at Nick then kissed him and ignored the “aww” from the girls and the “ewes” from Munch and Fin.

Captain Cragen just smiled to see women he saw as a daughter so happy and in love. They all decided to go home and parted ways.

Chapter Text

The next morning Nick had just woken up and smiled when he saw Olivia in his arms. He lay there a few minutes until the alarm went off watching her; she woke up rolled over and smiled at him,

Olivia said, "Morning Honey, come on we need to get up; we don't want you to be late."

Nick replied "Morning Baby, and no we don't or you to be late either, they'll think I'm a bad influence on you when it's the over way round."

Olivia punched him in the arm and said: "no it's not, now come on".

They both got ready and headed to the precinct, they said hello, and Nick went into Cragen’s office, Brian Cassidy then entered and went up to Olivia,

He said, "can we talk."

she said "yes" her phone then rang so she said" hold on" and saw it was Beth so answered with "Amaro."

Beth said, "hey Liv, where are you your not answering your house phone."

Olivia smiled and said, "at work."

Beth said, "they know then and any news on Nick."

Olivia grimaced and said, "yeh they do, oh shit I forgot to phone you didn't I."

Beth said, "forgot to tell me what."

Olivia said, "erm that he is ok and home."

Beth shouted, "Olivia Amira Amaro how could you not tell me."

Olivia said, "ouch no need to shout Beth, and sorry I forgot, with everything going on, want the long story or short."

Beth said "long story."

Olivia said "you would, about the time I was due to pick him up, I was sat at my desk doing paperwork and wasn't smiling, he walks in and said "what's the sad face for Mrs Amaro"  everyone looked confused, I looked up and saw him and ran up to him and kissed him, that kind of gave it away to everyone, we then went to the pub and talked with everyone, Nick got offered a job by my Captain, so he is in there now sorting that out"

Beth said "aww, hey Liv do you mind if I come and see you both? I need to speak to you both."

Olivia said, "no, of course, we don't; what's up."

Beth said, "I'll explain when I get there."

Olivia said, "That’s ok are you ok to be driving."

Beth said, "I'll be there in about two hours, will you be at work."

Olivia said, "yeh, you remember where it is, don't you."

Beth said, "Yeh I do, I'm just going to load up the car then I'll be on my way bye."

Olivia said, "ok ring me when you’re outside; I will come and meet you bye."

She then hung up and turned back around to Brian just as Captain Cragen and Nick came out

Brian said "you’re such a slut, marrying a stranger, and to think I thought you were playing hard to get"

Olivia laughed and replied, "Marrying a stranger, we've known each other since we were 14, and I wasn't playing hard to get I wasn't going to cheat on my husband, and I don't like you full stop."

Just then Nick had come up and punched Brian and said: "don't you ever call my wife a slut or talk to her like that again."

Olivia stopped Nick punching him again and said: "Nick doesn't think he isn't worth it."

Captain Cragen said "get out of my precinct Cassidy" he then looked at Liv and said, "Are you ok."

Olivia replied, "I'm fine capt."

Cragen turned to everyone and said "while I've got everyone's attention, this is our new Detective Nick Amaro, and also any rumours from yesterday are true, Detective Benson is married to him and is now going by Detective Amaro, Fin you will be paired with Nick and Munch, Amanda you will be paired with Liv"

Nick said, "Liv you ok."

Olivia said, "I'm fine Nick I promise."

They all went back to work when two and half hours later, Detective Myers came in with Matt and Beth

Detective Myers said, "Detective Benson there are two visitors here to see you."

Olivia looked up and saw Matt with Beth and looked confused; she said: "thanks, Detective Myers and Matt what are you doing here and hey Beth."

Matt said, "You don't know."

Beth smacked his arm and said, "She doesn't know yet, idiot, hey nick."

Nick said, "Hey Beth, Matt what are you both doing here?"

Beth said, "we'll see I've popped up to see you both, thought I would drag matt along since we haven't all seen each other together since school, why wasn't he at the wedding and the fact were a couple".

Olivia smirked and said, "I knew you two would get together."

Matt said, "Yeh ok, and I was in the middle of a deployment, Helmand province, I think, all kind of happened quick, last I knew you two had lost touch, and then when I get back there was a wedding invitation with my mail, what happened there".

Nick said "my parents, moved us, I sent her letters, the first three I had no reply to, the next three was returned to sender, Addressee unknown, So I thought either, she wasn't getting them or didn't want to know me or that she moved"

Olivia said, "I didn't get the letters, and we never moved, god damn her why can't she let me be happy just because she isn't".

Elizabeth Donnelly who had been in the squad room said: "Don, we have to tell her."

Chapter Text

Cragen said, "Are you sure Lizzy?"

Elizabeth Donnelly said, "Yes, she needs to know."

Olivia said, "No what."

Cragen said, "Both of you my office now".

Once they were all in his office, Nick and Liv sat on the sofa; Don stood leaning against his desk with Liz slightly in front of you.

Liz said, "I want to tell you the full story, please don't interrupt, but first, what Serena has said about your father."

Olivia said, “Just that he raped her and I'm the product of rape, which is why she hates me as she didn't believe in abortion, so she had to have me." 

Liz took a deep breath and said "no, you were born into a loving and happy marriage with parents who both wanted you,  we met when we were fourteen and got together, shortly after I was sixteen my parents died, I moved in with Don and his parents, we got engaged shortly after, we married  after I completed college and before I started University, Don joined the force straight out of school, in my final year of uni, Serena transferred in she was doing a English degree, I made friends with her, she tried to split me and Don up by trying to sleep with him, we stopped talking, the night I graduated, was the night you were conceived, you weren't planned but you were very much wanted, I was just starting out at a small law firm, you were born nine months later on the 21st Feb. you were born, we name you Olivia Amira Cragen, you were perfect, three weeks after you were born, we took a walk with you to take you to meet my colleagues, on the way back we bumped into Serena, she asked about you and your name and said congratulations and that was the last we have ever seen of her, we got home and Don went to work, I feed you and put you down, I was sorting some washing out, and the next thing I remember was waking up in hospital, and asking after you" 

Liz was now crying, so Don said: "you were missing, Liz had been hit over the head, we could never find any links to go on, but the case was always kept open, when you joined the academy and when the input you DNA in the system it flagged up the case."

Olivia said, “yeh thought it was my shooting case, as that is still open." 

Don said, “we got notified, and we really wanted to tell you, but Liz was scared you would reject us, and she couldn't face that, and you seemed happy, what is this shooting case." 

Olivia said, “your my real parents and Serena kidnapped me because she was jealous, and I was fifteen, we were walking home, and this car drove past and shot me, it hit me in the stomach, they couldn't get anything to go on." 

Liz said, “yes we never stopped looking for you and are you ok now." 

Olivia smiled and stood up and hugged them both with tears in her eyes and said “mom, dad“, after a few minutes she said "that's why she never treated me like her daughter and yes but it's reduced my chance of conceiving"

Liz hugged her and Don said, “I’m sorry we couldn't protect you, darling."

Olivia said, “so what's happening with Serena."

Don said, “we need to pick her up for kidnapping and assault."

Olivia said "I can ring her ask her to meet me here say we need to talk and get her in the integration room,"

Liz said “are you going to be ok doing that"

Olivia said, "yes but you three need to stay out the way till I get her to the integration room.

Don said, “we can wait inside it."

Olivia nodded her agreement and rang Serena and got her to meet her there. Don Liz and Nick were waiting in the interrogation room.

Serena walked in and said, “what is this about Olivia."

Olivia said “I need to ask you something in regards to a Case" and led her into the interrogation room. 

Serena upon noticing everyone said, “what’s going on."

Olivia said, "you remember Nick Amaro, my high school boyfriend don't you, or should I say my husband, and Also Elizabeth and Don Cragen, your friends and my parents."

Serena paled and said, “I don't know what you're talking about."

Olivia pulled out the missing case report and said: “my DNA matched this case, of a missing baby girl; my DNA also shows I am their daughter, why did you do it."

Serena said, “because she had everything a perfect partner, and then a family, she didn't deserve to have it, So I took you knowing it would make them fall apart and he would come running to me and I could just pass you off as a product of rape."

Don said, “she did deserve it, and I wouldn't have come running to you, and you didn't make us fall apart, we're still together."

Serena shouted "don't I know it, even shooting her" she pointed at Olivia "Didn't get you to come running to me as it was different officers on the case" once she realised what she said, she looked shocked.

Olivia said, “you shot at me and caused me problems because you were Jealous."

Olivia walked out with Nick and said to Fin, "Capt. wants you in there to arrest her."

Fin walked in and said, "Liv said you wanted me to arrest her."

Cragen said “yes, for charges of assault, Kidnapping, Child endangerment and Attempted Murder,”

Fin looked shocked but handcuffed her and said “Serena Benson you are under arrest for assault, kidnapping, Child endangerment and Attempted murder" and read her rights and took her to booking,

When he came back, he said, “baby girl you ok?"

Olivia said, “yeh think we need to come to mine and I'll explain it fully."

They all agreed and called Casey, Alex and Melinda, and they all meet at the Liv's, once they were sat down with drinks.

Olivia said, “Serena was arrested for Assault, Kidnapping, Child endangerment and Attempted murder as when I was three weeks old, she hit my mom over the head and knocked her out and kidnapped me."

Alex said “wait if she isn't your mom who is"

Olivia smirked and said " Elizabeth Cragen or as you know her Elizabeth Donnelly."

They all gasped and looked at Liz, slightly confused.

Liz laughed and said, “I know you all know me as Donnelly, but that is my maiden name, and I use it for work, my husband and Olivia's Dad is Don Cragen,  and we never stopped looking for her when she went missing."

Casey said “ok; we get that but what about the child endangerment and attempted murder."

Olivia said "I was fifteen, Serena was in DC for a few days, or so I thought, Nick and I were walking down the road when this car slowed a gun come out of nowhere, and I got shot twice in the stomach. Until she had admitted it today by accident we didn’t know who it was, oh and guys, this is Matt and Beth who we have known from school, Beth was also at our wedding, Matt wasn't because he was out in Afghanistan. So we had Beth and another friend who was also Beth's partner at the time there.

Beth said, “do your parents, Nick or Serena know about you too."

Olivia smirked and said "Serena does, but I don't care, and Dad found out the same time as everyone else, so he would have told Mom after, Nick's parents I doubt it although I am surprised we haven't heard anything of them since we've been together, 12 and half years is a long time"

Nick said "that will be because we had a massive falling out about me joining the academy. I told them they had already ruined my life once, they weren't going to again and told them I never want to speak to them again, and were both stubborn so they won't contact me, and I won't contact them."

Olivia just rolled her eyes and laughed "not going to deny that you are stubborn, Hey Mand when is Mikey coming home."

Amanda said, “hopefully in a week, unless this one has set him up to do something."

Nick said "no I didn't this time, we had our usual c/o, and I just said it, didn't mean for him to follow through, I seem to remember you doing a lot of prank's or just getting contraband alcohol from god knows where"

Amanda said, “yeh but I never got caught, and I have my ways."

Nick said, "no but you did get caught hanging upside down on a fire escape though, luckily we were at the base over here and not over there."

Amanda said, "yeh that wasn't the best move, especially as I was still drunk and hyper when our c/o called me up to him, I burst into laughter."

Olivia said, “you’re current c/o or the old one."

Nick said “the old one."

Olivia laughed and said, “I can't believe you did that. I'm surprised he didn't kill you for that."

Amanda said, “and me, I think I got away with it though, as I had a sugar crash and fainted in front of him."

Everyone burst into laughter and spent the rest of the night catching up and telling stories from the past.

Chapter Text

The next day it was around 11:00 when Don and Liz turned up, Olivia was in the living room with Beth talking,

she said "ignore the idiots in the kitchen, neither of them are doing anything, and if you even think of doing anything I will kick your Ass's"

Liz said, "what was the about."

Liv said, "I haven't got a clue I just now they shouldn't be thinking of doing it, especially seeing as they're both still in the military, Nick you still have 2 and a half years reserve time on yours and matt you still have five years plus your reserve time so behave."

Nick said, "Yes Livie."

Matt shouted, "Yes mum."

Liv laughed and said, "lose the attitude matt, Mum dad come through to the living room and leave the prat's in there."

Once they were sat down,

Olivia said, "As Benson, wasn't my legal name, will it affect anything like my marriage etc."

Liz said, "no as that is what you believed your name to be if u need to change anything like the name on your marriage certificate, just take your original birth certificate, which I've brought over and the case number, and there won't be a problem."

Olivia smiled and said, "thanks, mum it's still hard to believe I had parents who loved me and she took me away from all of it."

Liz said, "as soon as you were placed in my arms, I Loved you immediately, we never stopped looking for you as we knew you were out there and we want to be parents to you again if you will let us."

Olivia said "of course mom and dad I would love nothing else, and I don't know what you two are doing in there but any mess and your clearing it up

Liz said, "how did you know they're doing something."

Olivia said, "they’ve gone quiet, which means they're doing something childish."

Don said "so how did you and Nick meet then"

Olivia smiled remembering "I was 14 we had Just moved back to New York from Montana, which was where I lived from when she kidnapped me till then, I started at the local school, me and Beth made friends first, and she introduced me to those pair in there, a few months Later me and Nick started dating, until he moved to Miami in senior year, she and his parents didn't like us together, we lost touch due to her, we both started at the academy at the same time, we started dating again three weeks later we were married, we kept it quite because we didn't want them to find out, then over the years it was just easier, especially when he joined the army, we decided before he went off on his last tour, we wanted to reveal ourselves, it just happened differently to what we planned due to him deciding to go, Mia,"

Nick shouted through "I didn't choose to Honey."

Liz said "so you got together when you were the same age as us then, I really wish you didn't have to go through her and his parents trying to split you up or any of the crap she put you threw, was it just trying to split you up and the shooting or was there more"

Olivia said, "she was a drunk; she used to hit me and stuff."

Liz started crying and said, "I'm sorry darling."

Olivia said, "it wasn't your fault mom, would you like to see the wedding album."

Liz said "Yes please."

Olivia went upstairs to get it and had just come back down, and they were all sat talking when Nick and Matt came sneaking in and made her jump, she screamed while everyone laughed

She turned to them and said, "you, I expect it from, you never did grow up, but Matt why."

Matt smirked and said "getting you back."

Olivia said, “you on about in the central park, with Elliot."

Matt said “no, I'm on about the time you fainted on me"

Olivia said “shit Nick doesn't know about that"

Nick said "I do now so what happened"

Olivia said "we were working on a case nonstop, I hadn't been sleeping well it was one of the times, you had been on a mission and no contact, so that made it worse. I hadn't eaten at all that day, and I was talking to Matt, and next thing I know I'm coming round on the floor, I was fine though just lack of energy."

Nick sighed and said, “Liv, you know you need to take better care, of yourself."

Olivia said “you’re a fine one to talk"

Nick smirked and said, “we're not talking about me, are we, what happened in the central park, with Elliot then."

Olivia smiled and said "Elliot and I were in Central Park canvassing when I saw Matt, so I got Elliot to go up and arrest him, when he asked why,  Elliot said my partner recognises you as the perp, from another case were working on. when he turned around there's me smirking at him; I did think he was going to kill me for that."

Matt said, “I don't kill; I get even."

Everyone burst into laughter.

They all chatted and had lunch when Matt got a phone call saying he was being deployed immediately; he turned to Nick and Olivia

And said, “We have to go, I'm being deployed, and it was nice to see you both, and nice meeting you Don and Liz.”

Nick and Olivia said, “keep safe Matt and you, Beth."

Don and Liz said, “nice to meet you too."

With this he and Beth left, Don and Liz stayed a bit longer before a case was called in and they all got back to work, the following week went fast as they were busy with Cases at work.

Chapter Text

The next morning Liv and Nick walked into work and started working on their paperwork, while Amanda and Fin were out on a case, they had all finished up, and it was now noon, and Munch had gone out to get lunch for everyone.

Olivia said, “Amanda isn't Mikey due back today."

Amanda who was busy working and in her world of her own looked up with a big smile walked over and said: "yeh between now and 15:00 as they have a stop."

Olivia said, “Well I see someone's excited."

Amanda smirked and said, “can’t wait especially seeing as someone's idea got him an extra two weeks on either side of his deployment."

Nick said, “hey what is it with you two and blaming me for things; I didn't force him to do it."

Everyone looked confused, and Olivia smirked and said: “well they are your fault and I only blamed you for two things."

Nick said, “Liv one I didn't choose to, and two that was Matt's idea anyway and three, I didn't think he was going to do it, I suspected Jamie-Lee would but not Mikey."

Fin said, “what are you two on about baby girl."

Olivia smirked and said " I was talking to Mom and Dad last week and said how we didn't plan to announce our marriage that way, but someone had to go MIA. Then, after a while I had just gone to get the wedding album and had just sat down, when he and Matt scared me, him I can get as he hasn't grown up, but Matt I couldn’t. He said he was getting me back, I thought he was on about the time I got Elliot to arrest him, but no he was on about the time I fainted, Nick didn't know neither did Dad. Nick moaned at me, Dad didn't say anything although I could tell he wasn't impressed, and he said about getting their own back on their covering c/o and suggested things, but he was off with broken ribs when Mikey and a few others did it "

Cragen who had snuck in while she was talking said: “you are right Olivia; I was not impressed to find Out especially since you were still on duty at the time."

Olivia muttered "shit" and then said, "hi Dad."

Cragen said, "I heard that, and how are you this morning then."

Olivia just smiled and said, “I’m fine."

Fin said, “What’s this about you fainting on duty than a baby girl.”

Olivia said "remember the last case, when Elliot was here, and we had been working on it nonstop. well, I hadn't been sleeping well, even more so since he was on a no-contact mission, I hadn't eaten at all that day, I was talking to Matt and next thing I know I was coming round on the floor, It was due to lack of energy."

Fin said “Liv."

Olivia said, “I know".

Just then Munch walked in with lunch they all sat and ate lunch afterwards Nick and Olivia were stood up talking, and Olivia leaned up and kissed him, just as Mikey and Jamie-Lee walking in

Mikey said “Liv put him down you don't know where he has been" he then saw Amanda and said, “There's that Goby Blonde wife of mine."

Amanda looked up and smiled and walked over to him and kissed him.

Nick said, "see I told you it was Mikey who said to call you that, Hey Jamie-Lee what are you doing here."

Jamie-lee said “Hey Nick, Manda, I thought I would come to see you both and say hi to Liv.

Fin said, “Jamie-Lee is that you."

Jamie-Lee said, "hey Odafin what are you doing here."

Fin said, “I work here."

Jamie-Lee said, “you left Narcotics."

Fin said, “yeh I couldn't work there after you took a bullet that was meant for me."

Olivia said, “you’re the partner, who took the bullet that was meant for him then."

Jamie-Lee said "yeh, we had a big argument, I was on reserves, but asked to be deployed as soon as I was able to. expected the papers but it seems someone never sent them, Decided it was time to come see him as well although I was going to go over to our old precinct and see if we were going to work on it or get divorced."

Munch said, “you two are married."

Jamie-Lee said, "yeh, although I expected him to send divorce papers."

Cragen said, “why.

Fin sighed and said "cause, she jumped in front of the bullet that was meant for me, we had a massive argument over it, and I said I never wanted to see her again although I didn't mean it, and walked out. I went back the next day, and she wasn't there, and I expected papers to come from her, where did you go anyway, you weren't due to leave for a few days."

Jamie smirked and said "we have really got to get better at reading each other, and after you walked, out I waited for you to come back when you didn't come back two hours later like you normally do when we argue. I rang my C/O and requested to go back as soon as I was able, they transferred me to Bethesda in Dc, so I could have my medical done at the same time, I told them to tell you I was being transferred. I didn't think you meant it, but after a week of not hearing from you, It made me think you did."

Fin said “I wasn't told that you were transferred there, and I couldn't exactly ring you as your phone took one of the shots, I'm sorry for not trying harder come here" and with that, he held his arms open.

Jamie walked up to him and hugged him, she then looked up and kissed him passionately, Alex and Casey, along with Liz walked in at this point.

Alex and Casey said, “wait what's going on here then."

Fin and Jamie broke apart, but she stayed in his arms,

Olivia said, “Amanda’s husband came back, and Jamie-Lee came back with him, to see Nick and me, and Amanda, also turns out she is Fin's estranged wife."

Alex said “wait, Fin's married"

Fin said, "yes although we haven't seen or spoken to each other in eight years, my fault though."

Jamie said, “it was not; it was both of ours."

Fin said "Jamie it wasn't"

Jamie said "Odafin yes it was, we both didn't try harder to speak to each other again, and I stand by my decision to jump in front of that bullet, as I would rather not speak to you for eight years, then not have you all together, If I hadn't it would have hit your heart"

Fin said, “no instead it hit your stomach."

Jamie smirked and said, "Better my stomach, then killing you and don't even try to say it wasn't, cause you know I can kick your ass."

Fin said “really, are you sure."

Jamie " Odafin you asked that last time, and I did, and you ended up Getting engaged to me, so do you want to ask that again."

Fin held his hands up and said "fine Jamie-Lee Rose Tutuola."

With this, they both burst out laughing.

Olivia said, “are you always like this, and he ended up marrying you by, him questioning whether you can kick his ass."

Jamie said "yeh we are, and no we were at his, and he got down on one knee and asked me and I said Yes, and he said are you sure, and I said yes, and he said again really are you sure. so I said Yes I am sure I want to marry you and if you ask again I'll kick your ass, so he asked again, so I kicked his ass."

Everyone started laughing, and Fin said: “God I’ve missed you, Jamie-Lee."

Jamie said, “I’ve missed you to Fin."

Nick said, “wait, so the only one who isn't married is Munch, Casey and Alex."

Munch and Alex nodded, and Casey muttered: “I am."

Olivia said, “Casey you're married."

Casey rolled her eyes and said “shit, you heard that"

Olivia said, "yeh case; you need to learn to be quieter when you mutter, so spill."

Casey said, “we’ve been married sixteen years."

Olivia said, “how come you haven't said anything."

Casey smirked and said, "he's stuck over in Afghanistan, has been for the last two years, helping out over there, and it just never came up I suppose."

Olivia just smiled and said, “I’m not saying a word while looking at Mikey and Nick."

Just then a teenage Girl came running in and up to Nick and said: “Uncle Nick, is it true that you married auntie Livie and you found her again."

Nick smiled and said, “who told you Emmie and why don't you ask her yourself."

Emmie said "Mum and Nan, mums trying to stop Nan coming up and kicking off as Nan is in a bad mood, and wait you mean you did find her, where is she"

Nick pointed over to Olivia, where Emmie ran over to her shouting "auntie Livie", and ran into her arms,

Olivia hugged Emmie and then said, “hey Emmie, still trying to knock me off my feet I see."

Emmie smirked and said, “always, when did you and Uncle Nick get married then."

Olivia smiled and said “12 and half years ago."

Emmie said “Uncle Nick, you found her 12 years ago and didn't tell us,"

Nick laughed and said, “well I had just fallen out with your Mum and Nan at that point, and I wasn't going to tell your Nan was I squirt".

Emmie rolled her eyes and said, "Uncle Nick, you haven't called me that since I was four."

Chapter Text

Nick just smirked and said "well I hardly saw you after that, once we had moved did I, anyway what's your Nan in a mood about"

Emmie smirked and said "no instead you were out causing trouble, and Nan has just found out that, me and Mum didn't stop seeing Dad just because she moved us to another state, and that there still together, and married and then finding out about you and auntie Livie on top meant she wasn’t best pleased" 

Lisa and Sarah, who had just entered the squad room hearing the last bit of the conversation,

Lisa said, “She is not your auntie Emma Louise Amaro."

Sarah said "mom no matter what you say it is always going to be Emma Louise Neal, and two, whether you like it or not Olivia is Emmie's auntie, even more so now they're married," with this she went up and hugged Nick and then Olivia and said " hey you pair, so when did you get married then?"

Nick smirked and said, “Hey Sar, 5th June 1999, when did you and Luke, get married then, and you can't deny it, Emmie told us."

Sarah smiled and said, "congrats and 6th March last year, take it she told you Mom wasn't pleased then."

Nick laughed and said, "congratulations then and oh yes when did she find out you still saw Luke then."

Sarah answered "Last month and only because I answered with Sarah Neal, without checking the caller I.D surprised she didn't find out before."

Nick laughed and said, "15 years you've been coming to DC, most weekends with Emmie, and she only finds out last month by accident, bit slow aren't you Mum, how did u find out about Liv and me anyway."

Sarah said "that was my fault, I was talking to Sophie yesterday, and she said I walked past your brother and Olivia the other day when did they get back together. And I said are you sure they're together, and she said yeh they were holding hands, and you kissed, and I shouted up to Emmie, forgetting mom was in the room, saying Uncle Nick is back With auntie Livie".

Nick smirked and said, "always did have a big mouth didn't you Sar."

Sarah said "oh shut up; it was you who told everyone I was pregnant,"

Olivia interrupted them before it got worse and said: "nice to see you pair getting on so well, and actually, it was me that caused Nick to tell everyone you were pregnant as I read his message for him, he just happened to shout it out, but it solved your problem anyway."

both Sarah and Nick just stuck there tongue out at Liv, which caused her to laugh,

Nick then said, "Say what you want to say Mom then go; nothing is going to stop me from being with Liv, not even you."

Lisa rolled her eyes and said, "Well if you want to ruin your life with her that up to you."

Nick laughed and said "thought joining the academy did that, and I'm sure you would say the same about me joining the army, but neither did. Olivia has never ruined my Life she's just made it better, and I'm sure Sar has said this, but I'll say it, you could never rule our life's and tell us who to have in our lives as children, what makes you think you can now. So If you have nothing nice to say about my wife and me, just go."

Lisa turned to Sarah and Emmie and said: "come on you two let's go."

Sarah said “no Mom I told you we weren't coming back to Miami with you, we Live here in Dc with Luke, and I'm going to catch up with my brother and sister in law" with this Lisa stormed out,

Nick then turned to the rest of the squad and said “sorry about that guys, this is my sister Sarah, and Niece Emmie, these are my work colleagues, Fin, Amanda Munch and Captain Cragen who is also Liv's dad, next to Fin is his wife, Jamie-Lee, and between her and Amanda is Mikey,Amanda's husband. I worked with Amanda, Mikey and Jamie-Lee in the army, and in the corner, there is Casey our ADA."

Emmie saw Casey and said, "hey Auntie Casey."

Nick said "Auntie Casey?"

Casey said, "Yes, she is Charlie's brothers Little Girl, well not so little now are you, Emmie."

Nick said, "So my Brother in Law is also your brother in Law, god that's confusing."

Sarah said, "yes, especially with how much they look alike, Only difference is Charlie is taller and also has brown eyes, and in the marines, when is he back Casey."

Casey said "end of next week hopefully."

Sarah said "so that's not him walking in now" as she watched Charlie enter the bullpen.

Casey said, "no he would have rung if he was coming back early, he wouldn't just turn up."

Charlie said, "Oh Thanks, Cassandra Lynn Neal sixteen years of marriage and you forget what I look like after two years."

Casey gasped and said, "Charlie, you weren't meant to be here until next week."

Charlie smirked and said, "That’s what I wanted you to think, and god I've missed you."

Casey walked up to him and passionately kissed him and said "I've missed you too",

Charlie turned around to see her colleagues and said: "hey, Emmie, Sarah, Liv and Nick, I also see you found her again then Nick?"

Casey says "wait you know each other"

Olivia smiled and said "yeh, Nick and Charlie used to be best friends, played basketball together to,"

Cragen says "is anyone else's, husband or wife, going to come back soon then."

Everyone laughs and Olivia says "no unless Munch got married again or Alex did", why don't we all meet up at ours after work and we can all have a good catch up, Dad bring Mom too, I’ll invite Alex and Melinda."

Everyone agreed, and they all went back to work and agreed to meet at Liv and Nicks at 7 pm

Chapter Text

Everyone arrived at Olivia, and Nick's they all sat around their living room,

Olivia said, "we thought it would be good if everyone had a catch-up, especially since Nicks sister and niece has turned up and Sar is probably very confused, all though it doesn't take much."

Sarah just stuck her tongue out and said: “well last I knew you two had lost touch and at least this time, Nick doesn't want to kill Luke."

Casey said, “why did you want to kill Luke?"

Luke said, “because I got his baby sister pregnant."

Sarah said, “really Nick, six minutes."

Nick smirked and said “still my baby sister,"

Olivia laughed and said “you to pack it in before it gets worse. I feel sorry for Luke, especially if you still argue with Charlie as much."

Sarah said, “we don't anymore."

Casey said, “why did you and Charlie, used to argue." 

Charlie said "because she's Nicks little sister it was fun to wind her up,"

Olivia said, "don't even think of starting, although one of the things you used to wind her up over has come true hasn't it Sarah felicity Neal."

Sarah just blushed while everyone laughed and Nick said: “I seem to remember you doing the same Liv."

Olivia said, “what with Matt and Beth or Millie and Robin, and it was only because they were too blind to see what the other felt, glad they finally realised and got together."

Nick said, “wait, Millie and Robin got together when did that happen?"

Olivia said "unsure, I found out after you rang me on my birthday, Robin rang I said to say hi to Millie for me, and he asked how did I know she was with him, and I said cause they were inseparable in school and last time we saw them, and he admitted it"

Nick, Charlie, Luke and Sarah all said together “about damn time."

Everyone laughed; Olivia said, "That's exactly what I said".

Sarah said, “so what was your wedding like then Liv."

Olivia smiled and said "just us two and Beth and her partner at the time, as Robin and Millie was away, and Matt was in Afghanistan, only Mum and Dad has seen the photos so far, I was meant to bring them into work after everyone had found out, but I forgot"

Sarah said, “wait no one knew you were married And Mom and Dad?"

Olivia said "nope we didn't want it getting back to Serena, or your parents so kept it a secret, and yes Serena isn't my mother she kidnapped me as a child, Liz and Don are my real parents,"

Sarah said, "at least you have decent parents now, and let's see the wedding album."

Olivia smiled and said, "yeh I have, Nick it's in its usual place will you go get it."

Nick said "yes" and went to get it and shouted back through “Liv I can't see it."

She shouted back “it’s on the side where it always is." 

Nick said “it isn't"

Olivia sighed and said "I'll get it then," as she went into the bedroom he went back into the living room, she went up to the desk, and it was where she said it was and said "it's exactly where I said it was" then she saw the present right next to it.

She picked it up and the album and walked into the living room and sat next to it and said “Nick what's this” while showing him the present.

Nick said, “What’s it look like it's a present for you.”

Olivia opened it to find a ring box when she opened it and saw a simple ring with the infinity sign she looked up at him confused.

Nick smiled and said, "13 years ago today I asked you a very important question, and you made me a very happy man when you said yes, now I'm going to ask you another important question, Will you spend the rest of eternity with me."

Olivia had tears rolling down her face and said “yes.”

Nick slipped the eternity ring on her ring finger and kissed her while everyone clapped.

Nick then said, “what do you think about renewing our vows for our 15th anniversary."

Liv smiled and said, " would love to, here is, our wedding album guys".

Everyone looked through the wedding album,

Emmie said, “auntie Livie you look beautiful, you look like you did in the photo mum has of her and dad you and Uncle Nick."

Olivia said “what photo."

Sarah said, “you remember Millie’s birthday when she had a ball gown and tux's party."

Olivia said, “yeh, I was in red, you were wearing green, Luke and Nick had ties matching our dresses."

Sarah said, "that's the one, I have a photo of us four stood together there, didn't both you and Nick get into big trouble, something to do with getting your outfits dirty and lying, I know Nick was grounded."

Olivia and Nick both looked at each other and burst into laughter remembering what she was on about and what had caused them to get into trouble.

Luke said, “We never did hear the full story on that come on spill.”

Nick said "all though Serena didn't like me and my parents didn't like Liv, it wasn't much of a problem till they found out the truth, that's when they started trying to split us up. After the party we walked home through the field near Livs when we stopped and started kissing, we got carried away, which is what caused our outfits to get dirty, I told mum that I had played rugby with some of the guys, and Liv told Serena she slipped. A few days later Serena was talking to Mom, and she asked how to get grass stains knowing Mom would know as Sarah played soccer, they both told the other how we said we got the grass stains they realised we were lying, I know Mom went mad at me, grounded me and said I was banned from seeing Liv."

Liv blushing said, "yeh Serena went mad grounded me and banned me from seeing you too, although considering we meet up that night that didn't work."

Sarah smirked and said, “the only time you got into trouble was for that, the way Mom went on you would have thought it was worse."

Nick said, “I know, I zoned out in the end, and I'm shocked no smartass comment from you."

Luke said, “it’s only because she can't as that's how Emmie was conceived in the same field too."

Everyone burst into laughter and Fin said “seems like baby girl, has a naughty side to her"

Everyone spent the rest of the night chatting and catching up before they went home.

1 YEAR LATER

Olivia and Nick had decided to try for a baby, and she was now due any day with a little girl, she had left SVU when she was six months pregnant but still visited regularly. Nick had the day off, so they were sat on the sofa cuddling and watching a film when Olivia grimaced in pain as she stood up her waters went.

Nick said “come on sweetie lets go change your bottoms then we will go to the hospital how long have you been having pains for”

Olivia replied, “for about two hours now.”

Nick hugged her and said, “Oh sweetie you should have told me”.

Olivia got changed, and they grabbed the bags and left to go to the hospital.

They arrived at the hospital to be escorted to a room,

The nurse then said: “Olivia make yourself-comfortable the doctor will be in shortly”.

Olivia did as she was told and settled on the bed with Nick stand beside her, rubbing her back and holding her hand when she was having contractions.

The doctor came in and said “ok Mrs Amaro I am Doctor Carrie Smith but call me Carrie; I am going to be with you all the way through, now I’m just going to ask you some questions, then I will check you over” Olivia just nodded as another contraction hit,

Carrie said “how long have you been having contractions for and how far apart are they”

Olivia replied about “two and half hours and there every few minutes.”

Carrie then asked, “Have your waters gone.”

Olivia replied, “Yeh just before we left for here” Another contraction then hit Olivia,

Carrie then said: “I’ll just check you out and see how far into labour you are ok?” Olivia just nodded and gripped Nicks hand as Carrie checked her over.

Carrie finished her checks then said “you are ready to push Olivia do you think you can push when your next contraction hits you” Olivia just nodded and then pushed as a contraction hit.

Carrie said “that’s good can you do another few like that please” Olivia nodded and waited for the next contraction to hit her and pushed as hard as she could,

Nick was by the side of her and said “you’re doing good sweetie” while she was pushing.

Carrie said “one more like that and the head will be out” Olivia just nodded and pushed as hard as she could again, 

Carrie then said, “the heads out now all I need is one more big push could you do that for me”. 

Olivia nodded, and Nick said “come on sweetie I know you can do it and you’re doing good” as he was saying this Olivia did one final big push, and then they heard crying. 

Carrie wrapped the baby up saying “congratulations you have a baby girl.” 

Then passed who to Olivia who had tears in her eyes and said to Nick “she’s beautiful.” 

Nick replied, “just like her mother you did brilliant, sweetie I’m so proud of you” and kissed her.

Carrie came over after cleaning Olivia up and said “do you mind if we check her now” and Olivia passed her to Carrie, a few minutes later she came back and passed her back to Olivia and said “she’s all healthy she 6lb 8 oz and 19inchs long we are gonna move you into a room now”. 

Once they were moved into a room Nick helped Olivia to try to breastfed there little girl which was successful after, Nick got their little girl clean then passed her and some clothes and a nappy to change her into, over to Liv. Once she was done, she gave her to Nick and went to freshen up and put fresh PJs on. 

When she came back, she sat on the bed and said to Nick” what are we going to call her.”

Nick replied, “how about the name we picked I still like it, so it’s up to you.” 

Olivia just smiled stroked her baby girls head and said “welcome to the world, Jessica Nicole Amaro.”

Nick just smiled then said, “how about we call the guys and let them know you’ve had her know.” 

Olivia said “yeh ill ring Alex first” she picked up her phone and rang Alex,

Alex answered her phone saying “hey Liv everything ok.”

Olivia replied, “Yeh I was just ringing to say I’ve had her and you can all come and see me when you’re ready.”

Alex said, “What room number are you in as were all sat in the waiting room waiting.”

Olivia laughed and said “room 1053 I’ll see you in a few minutes” and hung up she turned to nick and said “there on their way up there all sat in the waiting room” Nick laughed and passed Jessica to her.

The whole gang walked in smiling with gifts and all saying “congratulations.”

Olivia replied with “thanks, guys I like to introduce you to Jessica Nicole Amaro who was born 20 minutes ago and was 6lb 8 oz and 19 inches long”.

They all just smiled then Olivia looked at Nick who just nodded her then passed Jessica to Don and said: “Dad, Mom meet your Granddaughter.”

Don and Liz both Looked at Jessica and Smiled, while Don Kissed Jessica’s Forehead, Liz gave Liv a quick hug and Kissed her Cheek, and Nick a Hug, and said “She’s Beautiful, Reminds me of you when you were new-born.

Don then passed her to Liz to hold while he Kissed Liv’s cheek and hugged her and shook Nicks Hand and said: “she's beautiful, and Liz is right, she looks exactly like you, and you're smiling as much as Liz was when you were born”.

Liz Kissed Jessica on her forehead and passed her back over to Liv. Who looked at everyone and said “we Know she already has a cousin in Emmie, An Aunt in Sarah and an Uncle in Luke, but Fin, Munch, Charlie, Mikey we hope you will also be Uncles to her, While Jamie, Alex, Casey, Amanda and Melinda, will be Aunts to her.”

They all agreed, and everyone got a chance to hold her before everyone left an hour later, to leave Olivia, Nick and Jessica in peace, the next morning Olivia and Jessica were discharged 

Chapter Text

Two years later 5th June

The girls had all finished getting ready, and Olivia was ready, 

Sarah said, "I'll take Jessica with me, to give you a few minutes before Don comes over."

Olivia said “thanks," 

With that, they left she was left on her own. She started thinking about two years ago when Nick suggested this, and now two years on they had a 15-month-old little girl Jessica Nicole Amaro, who come as a complete surprise. Liv had been told she would very unlikely to conceive and if she did she wouldn't make it past ten weeks, and now today, they were recommitting themselves to each other.

Don knocked on the door, bringing her out of her thoughts; she said: “come in."

Don entered the room and took her in and had tears in his eyes and said: “Olivia you look stunning are you ready."

Liv smiled and said “more than ever."

With this, they walked down to where the girls were waiting. Emmie and Jessica walked down first both in a baby blue colour, then it was Sarah and Casey in a light blue, Melinda and Alex in blue, Jamie and Amanda in royal blue, and Millie in navy blue, and in dark blue was Beth. Then it was time, for Don and Olivia to walk down when Nick saw her he was shocked at how beautiful she looked.

When they arrived at alter Don placed Olivia's hand in Nick's and said "look after her",

Nick said "always."

The minister started with "we are gathered here today to witness Olivia and Nick recommit themselves to each other. They have gone from losing contact and finding each other and marrying each other after three weeks; some may have said it was too soon, but for these to it could not have come sooner. Now fifteen years on they are stronger together and have a beautiful fifteen-month-old daughter together.

He turned to Nick and said "do you Nicholas lee Amaro recommit yourself to Olivia Amira Amaro and to spending Eternity with her"

Nick said, "I do."

He turned to Olivia and said, “do you Olivia Amira Amaro recommit yourself to Nicholas Lee Amaro and to spending Eternity with him."

Olivia said “I do

He then took them through their vows, and re-blessing there rings, he then said: “I now pronounce you man and wife, you may kiss your bride."

Nick and Olivia kissed while everyone clapped; they then walked back down the aisle and made their way to the reception.

At the reception, they all sat down and ate their meals and then they started the speeches,

Nick said "on behalf of myself and Liv, I want to thank you all for coming and making today special. Liv when we lost touch, I didn't know what I was going to do without you, When we both met again at the academy, I was so happy, and this time 15 years ago, we had been husband and wife for an Hour, and now 15 years on, we are in the same position. Except we are wiser and stronger, I want to thank you for making me a better person and giving me our wonderful daughter, so can we all raise our glasses to Liv."

Everyone raised their glasses and said, “to Liv."

Luke said " I've seen Liv and Nick, go from being teenagers, trying to hide their feelings, and then starting a relationship, to growing so close and you could see the love between them, to seeing them loosing each other and seeing their heartbreak over it, and two years ago finding out they found each other and had been married just under 13 years, and how much in love they where,  so I'm glad to be here celebrating your 15th anniversary and you both renewing your vowels, congratulations both, I haven't got any embarrassing stories for Nick, but I do have one for both of them that some of you may have heard"  he then told the story from Millie’s birthday.

Don said " I remember when Olivia was first born, one of the first few things Liz and I were talking about was seeing her first steps and starting school. then seeing her fall in love and get married, and being there when any grandchildren were born, we missed out on a lot of that, but we are so happy to be here today seeing this, and knowing that she can't find anyone who will love her more,"

after the speech's they cut the cake, and then had their first dance which was too ‘because you loved me by Celion Dion’, she then danced with Don to ‘I loved her first by heartlands’, The rest of the night was spent talking and dancing, they went home to spend the weekend together as a family.

Five years later

At 9:00 Jessica ran and jumped onto Olivia and Nick’s bed,

And said, “Mommy, Daddy, wake up it's my birthday."

Olivia smiled and pulled her into her for a hug and said "happy birthday Princess."
