Casey Novak: February Song

Title: February Song
Fandom: Law and Order SVU
Character(s): Casey Novak
Prompt: 3.65: Night
WC: 160
Rating: G
Summary: Casey lies awake thinking of Liz.

            It was too quiet, even the cat refused to ripple the silence with soft purring.  And Casey felt the cold as one who is alone does—acutely, forlornly.  She opened her eyes and shivered.  The covers were wrapped around her middle.  Casey sighed; it seemed that every time she ran from Liz, she fell along the way.  Every time she walked out of Liz’s door, presumably each time the last, she somehow wound up promising herself she would come back one day.  

            It was too quiet, even the cat refused to ripple the silence with soft purring.  And Casey felt the cold as one who is alone does—acutely, forlornly.  She counted the raindrops that began to against the window—1-2-3…1-2-3—like a waltz.  Like Liz.  Casey always associated Liz with a waltz…the way she swept into a room with understated grace, like a glance.

            But it was still night; there was no use trying to go to her now.

Awww. That is good. I like the 'associated Liz with a waltz' line best.

Thank you. I was listening to this song on the new Josh Groban album and it just kinda came to me.
