Detective Olivia Benson was so upset with herself. She didn’t want to hide the truth about the investigation from Melinda, but she knew she had to; now Melinda was mad at her and for once she couldn’t blame her. It was her fault; she didn’t want Melinda or her staff to loose their jobs over this. She wanted to explain to Melinda why she did it, but she ran out of the squad room before she had the chance.
After her talk with Cragen she wondered if she should go to Melinda’s office to apologize to her. After Thinking about it for awhile she decided she was going to do the right thing and apologize to her friend. She walked out of the precinct and went directly to Warner’s office. (She figured she’d still be there, after all she worked just as hard as the detectives did.) She went up to the door and knocked on it waiting for Warner to answer behind it. Olivia arrived at her office, knocked on the door and waited anxiously for Melinda to answer.
Olivia then heard “Come in” from the other side of the door; she turned the knob and opened the door.
Melinda stared at her with surprised eyes.
“Olivia...what are you doing here?”
“Look, I wanted to tell you I’m sorry for what I did I know I should’ve let you know what was going on, but I couldn’t. I was hoping you’d forgive me.”
“Olivia, my office and I could’ve gotten in serious trouble for what you did.”
“I understand, Melinda. I’m sorry; I didn’t want you or your office to get into trouble, I hope you know that.”
“I know you didn’t and I’m sorry I got angry with you.”
“No, I deserved it. You were right. Are we friends again?”
“Of course, we always will be.”
“So… now what?”
“Well we could go out tonight, you know a girls night out type of thing.”
“Sure, where to?”
“Anywhere but here.”
They both laughed, stood up and walked towards each other.
“You know, I’ve missed you.”
“I’ve missed you as well.”
Once they said that, they’re lips moved together to form a gentle soothing kiss.
Melinda wrapped her arms around Olivia’s waist and whispered in her ear, “I’m sorry.”
Olivia then whispered, “Me too.”
