Detective Olivia Benson strolled through the door of the medical examiner's building at exactly 9:02 a.m. She carried a small cup of coffee, carefully, and finished the last sip before depositing the cup in a trash bin outside Dr. Warner's lab. She thought it rude to drink coffee over the deceased. Whatever mechanisms she possessed to deal with the realities of her work - humor, detachment, dogged pursuit of information to avoid dwelling on the sudden shortening of a young woman's life - she also felt compelled to treat everyone with the utmost respect. Victims, living or dead. Colleagues. Warner expected them at nine, and here she was. She walked through the door.
Detective Olivia Benson strode into the carpeted hallway of the building, passing a uniformed officer on his way out, who nodded to her. She knew she had to face the scene, soon, and so she planned on stopping for a moment to relax.
She did it whenever she could, to prepare herself for the worst. Blood would be the worst - blood everywhere, the most visceral sign of human life. After years on the job, she was almost used to it. Almost. She had to make sure she was ready for blood. She closed her eyes and paused in her stride. Only a second or two, to center herself after all the stress of the last hour.
Elliot was following behind her so closely and so quickly that he almost ran into her. He stopped on his toes, a hand on her back. “What, are you meditating?” It unsettled both of them, because they were so used to each other's body language that they walked together, in sync, with plenty of space.
She didn't answer him, and took a deep breath. “Go on ahead, I'll be right behind you.”
He walked around her in two big strides, turned back to face her. “No, it's okay. I can wait.”
Lucille Spencer laughed as she pulled her laptop atop her bare thighs. “Oh, please! Like I'd confuse fluid and fluent. Pathetic. I know my tongues, darlin'. Hold on, somebody's knocking. Yeah, must be Nick, maybe he left his keys in his gym locker again. Men! Hold on.”
After punching the mute button on her phone, she set the laptop down on the coffee table, and the cell phone next to it. She padded across her living room to the door, and unlocked both latches with two quick flicks of her wrist. “Nicky, did you lose your... Oh. It's you. You should leave.”
The door slammed open, and Lucille was knocked backward. She swore violently. “You get the hell out.” She was stunned into silence by a blow to her face that sent her to the floor. When she realized what had happened, she screamed in rage. But her scream was cut short by another blow. And another.
“Hello? Lucy?” came the voice on the cell phone. “Hello?”
