Chapter 17:  Workout

Once in the locker room at Gold’s, Olivia changed into a tank top and shorts while Alex sat on a bench and watched.  “Sure you don’t wanna work out, too, babe?” Olivia teased.


Alex gave her a look.  “Liv, you already know the answer to that.  Jogging and gymnastics give me plenty of exercise.”  Alex suddenly smiled.  “Speaking of jogging, why don’t you accompany me one morning?”


Olivia snorted.  “Alex, you jog at 6 in the morning.  That is way too early for my tastes.  Gotta get my beauty sleep, ya know.”


Alex stood up and kissed her on the cheek.  “You don’t need it.”


Olivia smiled and slapped her on the back.  “Thanks for the vote of confidence, babe.”


“I’m serious.  You’re the most beautiful girl in the world,” Alex said, running a hand through her hair and kissing her nose.


“As are you,” Olivia replied.  She took Alex’s hand and said, “Come on, let’s get this party started.”


After adjusting her weights, Olivia lay back against the bench and carefully lifted the barbell off the pegs above her head.  Alex immediately became nervous.  “Liv, be careful!  I don’t want you to get hurt,” she warned.


Olivia smirked.  She brought the barbell forward over her chest and began to pump it up and down, being careful to take deep breaths as she brought the weight down and exhale when she lifted it again.  “Trust me, sweetie.  This is nothing.  I can easily press 150.”


Alex smiled.  She found Olivia’s added grunts to be cute but sexy.  She was still worried about her safety, but she was confident that Olivia knew the ropes enough to use caution and take care of herself.


After three sets of 10 repetitions with short breaks in between, Olivia placed the barbell back on the rack above her and sat up.  “Whew!  What a workout!”


Alex ran her hands over Olivia’s sweaty biceps and said, “Mmm…I can tell.”


Olivia grinned her lopsided grin and leaned closer to Alex.  “You like what you see?”


“Oh yeah,” Alex replied, nodding and staring at Olivia’s muscles.  “God, you’re so hot.”


Olivia wiped the sweat dripping from her brow with the back of her hand.  “Literally.”


Alex grabbed a towel to wipe Olivia’s face.  She also handed her a bottle of water.  Olivia took a few swigs and then gave it back to Alex.  “What are you gonna do next?” Alex asked.


“Those punching bags are looking mighty good for it,” Olivia said, heading over to a large punching bag and taking several deep breaths before landing her first hard blow.


Alex watched in amazement as Olivia pummeled away.  “Damn, sweetie.  Have a little frustration you need to let out?”


“Yep,” Olivia said, not letting her eyes or her fists leave the bag.


Alex gently put a hand on her back.  “Don’t wear yourself out, baby.”


Olivia momentarily stopped what she was doing.  “Stand back, sweetie.  I don’t wanna accidentally elbow you or anything.”


Alex did as she was told.  She thought that Olivia looked incredibly sexy throwing punch after punch.  She couldn’t help but get a little turned on as she noticed Olivia’s nipples hardening through the tank.


When Olivia finally stopped, several rivulets of sweat were dripping off her face.  She ran her hands through her damp hair and then shook her head vigorously.  Alex laughed and stood back to avoid getting wet.  “Careful, sweetie!” she said with a laugh.


Olivia grinned.  “I thought you’d like that.  But I’m not done yet.  I still need to do my leg presses.”


Alex ran a hand down her face.  “Sweetie, you need to rest.  Look at you.  Poor baby’s burning up.”


Olivia chuckled.  “Well, that I am.”


Alex picked up the water bottle and poured a little over Olivia’s head.  “Feel cooler?”


“Much,” Olivia said with a smile.


“Are the pokies thirsty?” Alex asked, pouring the remaining water over Olivia’s chest.


“Mmm…yes, they are.  Man, that feels good, Alex.”


“I have something that will feel a little better,” Alex said sultrily, slipping her hands under Olivia’s shirt and rubbing them over her breasts that were slick with a combination of the water and her sweat.  Olivia’s nipples hardened even more against her fingers.  “Baby, your nipples are so hard.”


Gulping, Olivia bit her lip and looked down at her chest.  “Alex, you’re such a tease,” she mumbled.


“Who said I was teasing?” Alex asked, covering Olivia’s mouth with her own.


Olivia hungrily returned the kiss, battling Alex’s tongue for dominance.  She pushed her tongue farther down Alex’s throat when she felt Alex lightly pinch her nipples.  Becoming more aroused by the second, she suddenly broke away, her chest heaving.


Alex gave her a confused look.  “What’s wrong, Liv?”


“I want you too much,” Olivia responded breathlessly.


“And you can have me,” Alex whispered, slipping her hand down inside the front of Olivia’s shorts.


Olivia gasped sharply.  “Sweetie, w-what are you doing?”


Alex grinned.  “Last time I checked it was called touching you,” she replied, tugging on Olivia’s dampened curls.


Olivia blushed.  “But Alex, I’m all sweaty…down there.”


“I know.  And I don’t mind.”


“You don’t think that’s gross?” Olivia asked in shock.


Alex shook her head.  “Not at all.  Baby, nothing about you is gross to me.”


Olivia licked her lips in expectation of what was to come.  She grabbed Alex’s hand and dragged her to the locker room. 


Once they were alone, Alex slowly eased Olivia’s shorts and underwear off her hips.  “Mmm…” she moaned, slowly lowering herself to her knees in front of Olivia’s center.


Olivia looked down nervously.  She suddenly became self-conscious.  “Sweetie…you really don’t have to do this.”


“But I want to…” Alex insisted, dragging the tips of her fingers up and down Olivia’s center. 


“Alex, let me shower first.  I smell like sweat.”


Alex looked up at Olivia.  Continuing to stare into her eyes, she stuck her tongue out and slowly dragged it up the length of Olivia’s slit.  Olivia shuddered involuntarily.  Feeling her knees get weak, she leaned back against the wall to brace herself as Alex parted her folds and bathed her sex with her tongue.  “I love you, Liv.  Every single part of you,” Alex mumbled.


Olivia closed her eyes and tangled a hand in Alex’s hair.  “I love you, too,” she replied as Alex stood up and inserted two fingers inside her.  Placing her other hand at the back of Olivia’s neck, she pulled her in for a long, searing kiss.  Eventually breaking away, she told her to remove her shirt.  After Olivia threw her tank on the floor, Alex slid down a little and hungrily began sucking her nipples as she pumped faster and deeper.  Olivia moaned and forced herself harder on Alex’s hand.  Alex pressed her thumb hard against her clit and consumed her mouth again.  Before long, Olivia’s muscles began to clench around her fingers and she came hard against Alex’s hand.


Olivia desperately tried to catch her breath.  “Sweetie, that was amazing.”


Alex grinned.  “I agree.  Still wanna do those leg presses?” she teased.


Olivia shook her head.  “Not today.  My baby has worn me out.”


Alex giggled.  “That was the plan.”


Olivia smirked.  “Well, I can’t stand here naked forever.  I’m gonna go shower.  Wanna join me?”


Alex draped her arms across Olivia’s shoulders and replied, “Well, I think I’m gonna have to pass on this one.  If we shower together, the gym will be closed by the time we get out.  Besides, I don’t have anymore clothes to change into.”


Olivia gave her a lopsided grin.  “Well, you could wear a towel home.”


Alex scoffed.  “Yeah right, Liv.  Especially in this weather.”


“I’ll keep you warm,” Olivia said softly, leaning in closer to plant a kiss on her lips.  She slipped her hands under Alex’s shirt and rubbed them up and down her back.  With a flick of her wrist, she unlatched her clasp and slid her hands around to the front to caress her breasts under her bra.


Suddenly, Alex’s cell phone began ringing.  “Shit!” she exclaimed, trying to bend down to grab the phone out of her purse.


Olivia moved to stop her hand.  “Don’t answer it,” she said, pressing her tongue against her neck.


“Liv, I have to!” she said, looking at the caller ID and seeing that it was her mom.  “And stop sucking on me like that!  She’ll hear!” 


Olivia just chuckled and continued doing what she was doing.


“Hello?” Alex answered, trying to push Olivia’s face away from her neck.


“Hello, Alex.  Where are you?” her mother inquired.


“Um…I’m at the gym with Olivia,” Alex replied as Olivia lifted up her shirt and began kissing her stomach.  She reached down and tried to push Olivia away again but to no avail.


“The gym?  Did you girls get your dresses?”


“Yes, Mom.  But we came here so we could work out,” Alex answered.  She was trying hard to not be distracted by Olivia but was finding it increasingly more difficult.  Olivia lifted a hand to pinch a nipple, causing Alex to quickly stifle a moan and pinch Olivia’s arm in return.


“I never knew you as the type to lift weights,” her mother responded dryly.


“Mom, there are other things at the gym besides weights.  Like the abductor press.  It helps me exercise my thigh muscles.  They need to be strong for gymnastics.”


“I have something else that will help you exercise those muscles,” Olivia muttered against her stomach, unzipping Alex’s pants and sliding a hand inside her panties.


Gasping loudly, Alex pulled the phone away from her ear and thumped Olivia on the side of her head.  “Liv, get up right now!” she whispered harshly.


Olivia grinned and stood up beside Alex.  “Feisty, feisty,” she said, planting a big kiss on her cheek.


Alex rolled her eyes and put the phone back to her ear.  “What were you saying, Mom?”


“I was asking how you girls fit into your dresses.”


“Perfectly.  We found matching ones.”


“I see,” her mother responded.  “Well, I’ll let you get back to your…exercising.  I will see you when you get home.”


“Um, actually Mom, I was thinking of spending the night at Liv’s.  But I need to come by later and get some things.”


Her mother sighed deeply on her side of the line.  “Fine, dear.  Just make sure you get your work done and that you two go to bed at a reasonable hour.  I will call Serena and have her check on you.”


“Mom…we don’t actually need Olivia’s mom to watch our every move.  We’re big girls.  We can handle ourselves.”


“I’m sure you can.  But I’d feel much more comfortable if Serena checked in on you from time to time.”


This time it was Alex’s turn to sigh.  “Fine, Mom.  See you later.  Love you.”


“I love you, too, dear.  Goodbye.”


Alex closed her phone and then shoved Olivia’s shoulder.  “Liv, I cannot believe you did that while I was on the phone with my mom!”


Olivia laughed.  “Oh, come on.  You know you enjoyed every bit of it.”


Alex turned red.  “That’s not the point!  You chose to molest me while she was on the other end!”


Olivia laughed harder.  “Molest you?  Alex, you’re the one who fucked the shit outta me just a few minutes before she called.”


Alex blushed harder.  She turned Olivia around and pushed her toward the showers.  “Shower.  Now.”


Olivia looked over her shoulder and joked, “You sure you don’t wanna come?”


Alex slapped her hard on the ass.  “Just go!”


“Ow!” Olivia yelped.  “Alex, if you wanted to spank me, then all you had to do was ask!”


Alex rolled her eyes and said, “You are completely insane, Olivia Benson.”


Olivia walked back over and wrapped her arms around her waist.  “Alex, you’re not really mad at me are you?” she asked with a pout.  “I don’t like it when you’re mad at me.”


Alex looked into those big brown eyes and felt herself melting.  “Oh, Liv.  You and your goo-goo eyes.  No, I’m not mad at you.”  Olivia grinned.  Alex kissed her on the nose and continued, “I still think you’re crazy.”


“Good crazy or bad crazy?” Olivia asked, running her hands over Alex’s hips.


Alex smirked.  “It depends on the circumstance.  Now will you please go shower?  For me?”


“Ok, sweetie,” Olivia replied, planting a quick kiss on her lips.  “I’ll be out in a few, ok?”


Alex nodded.  “See you in a few.”


Ten minutes later, Olivia came out and slapped Alex with her wet towel.  “Hey!” Alex protested, laying her book facedown on her lap.


“What ya reading?” Olivia asked, sitting down beside her on the bench.


Anna Karenina,” Alex said with a smile, adjusting her glasses.


“You have to read it for Lit?”


“No.  Just some casual reading.  I like Tolstoy.”


“My perfect little bookworm,” Olivia said, kissing her on the cheek and playing with a few strands of hair that had become trapped by the side of her glasses. 


Alex smiled and pushed her glasses on the top of her head.  “Liv, you’re distracting me.  How am I supposed to read when you’re sitting there all naked and wet?”


Olivia closed her book and pretended to pout.  “I just want a wittle cuddle time,” she cooed.


Alex chuckled.  “Well, get dressed so we can go back to your place and cuddle.”


“Naked?” Olivia asked with a lopsided grin.


Alex rolled her eyes.  “No.  Remember, Liv?  Your mom is gonna be checking on us.”


“She won’t be with us every minute,” Olivia said, running the tip of her finger down Alex’s jawline.  “She probably won’t even be home yet when we get there.”


“Liv, the last thing we want is your mom catching us making love.”


“Well, that’ll never happen,” Olivia replied.  “We’re too careful.”


Alex stood up and grabbed her purse.  “Never say never,” she replied with a tight smile. 


Olivia stood up and began putting on fresh clothes.  “Sweetie, we really have nothing to worry about.  In the meantime, all that working out has worked up an appetite.  What do ya say we order a pizza when we get back to my place?”


Alex grinned.  “I say that sounds like a good idea,” she replied, linking her arm through Olivia’s.


Olivia grabbed her stuff and started walking out with Alex.  “Although with the amount you can consume, we might be better off ordering two.”


Alex playfully shoved her and then linked her arm back through Olivia’s.  “Very funny, Liv.  Let’s just get outta here.”


“You know I was just teasing, baby,” Olivia said, kissing her cheek softly.


Alex smiled at her.  “I know.”


“I love you,” Olivia replied.


“I love you, too, babe.  And I’m so glad Mom couldn’t actually see us through the phone.”


Olivia grinned.  “I think she’d be in for a very big surprise.”


Alex smirked.  “I’d say.”
