Chapter Text


Honey June "H.J." Tutuola was a first year DA when she met beat cop, Sonny Carisi, a few years back. They had drinks, then drinks turned into dates, and dates turned into something serious. For the next eight months, they were inseparable, until Honey was offered to work for the Manhattan police department as one of their DA's.

She wanted the job, even though it would put a dent in her relationship with Sonny since they currently lived in Staten Island.

Honey had a choice, a job or love. She chose to work. But what she didn't expect was a baby growing in her belly.

Six years later, she still works for the 16th precinct doing what she knows best. She just didn't expect to see her ex boyfriend being introduced as their newest detective with the special victims unit.

~Special Victims Unit~

Six years ago...

"Keep 'em coming, Todd."

The bartender stared at the women with disbelief. She was one of his regulars, never one to get drunk. She usually had one drink and would be done for the night.

But tonight, something was wrong. It was obvious since her next drink would be her fifth.

"Tough day?" A man asked the woman as he sat beside her, making sure to keep a seat between them, giving her some space.

The woman nodded, she didn't look away from her drink. "Yeah, you can say that."

"Wanna talk about it?" He asked her. She didn't say anything. The man waved at the bartender, "I'll, uh, pick up her tab. Drinks on me."

The woman smirked, "How generous." She looked over at him and noticed he still had on his uniform. "You a cop?"

"With the 120th precinct."

"Hmm, interesting. I've never seen you around."

The man shrugged, "New York is a big city."

She chuckled. "You can say that again."

He smiled. He was taken by her beauty. Her brown skin, her brown eyes, her brown hair. She was a beautiful woman. "You said you never see me around. You a cop too?"

She laughed as she shook her head before taking another swig of her beer. "No, I'm a DA. I work for the 120th."

"Oh small world." There was a pause between them. "I'm Dominick, by the way. But you can call me Sonny."

"You tell all the girls to call you Sonny."

"The ones I'd like to take out."

She smiled at him. "Smooth. I'm Honey." Sonny raised as eyebrow. Honey rolled her eyes. "Yes, that's my real name."

Sonny lifted his arms up in defense, jokingly. "Hey, nothing wrong with that. You have a nice name." He grabbed his beer and opened it. "What got you down in the dumps, huh?"

"I lost my first case today. Girl killed her boyfriend in cold blood, premeditated...she walks free."

Sonny sighed. "That's a tough one."

"Yeah, so...I feel like I failed him...and his family."

"Hey, the way I see probably fought hard to win, but in today's one wants to send a pretty girl to prison."

Honey looked at him. "Assuming that she's pretty."

Sonny shrugged. "I'm taking a wild guess here."

That comment made her laugh. "Well, yeah, some might say she's quite attractive."

For the next few hours, the two stayed and talked, ordered more drinks, even danced a little. Even though he was tipsy, it wasn't a shock to him that he was so into her. He smile was so capturing, her laugh was like a tender rhapsody.

"Alright. Alright. Closing time, you two." Todd, the bartender, told them. Honey frowned as she turned around to notice the empty bar.

"God, is it 3 a.m. already?"

"Yeah, you two have been yapping each other's ears off for the past five hours."

Sonny and Honey looked at each other. Being under his gaze made her blush.

"Looks like I should be heading home."

"Let me walk you?" Sonny offered.

"No, it's okay. I live several blocks away, I'll catch a cab."

"I have my cop car. You don't have to do that."

Honey smirked. "Okay, you've convinced me. Lead the way, Sonny."

The car wasn't at all quiet. They continued their conversation. He would ask her question about law, telling her that he was interested in maybe becoming a lawyer. She would ask about why he wanted to be a cop in the first place. They would then goof around. There wasn't a moment where they weren't engaged in each other's words.

"Pull over, this is my building."

He did what he was told. They sat there for a moment, it was the only time things were silent.

"So, um, thanks...for tonight. I enjoyed it." Honey started saying. "This has probably been the most spontaneous thing I've ever done since high school, so."

"I, uh, I want to see you again."

Honey's heart started beating faster. "Yeah? Well, I wanna see you again." She reaches in her purse and pulled out her card. "Give me a call."

She walked out of the car. By the time she was in front of her door, he phone rang. "Hello?"

"Yeah, this is Sonny. I was making sure you didn't give me a phony number."

"Phony? Was that an unintentional pun?"

Sonny's laughter filled her ears. "Yeah, it was. Can't believe I didn't catch that."

"Well, now you know. Goodnight, Sonny."

"Goodnight, Honey."

Six years later...

"Gia, hurry up, babe. School starts in an hour. With this traffic today, we'll be lucky we make it on time."

As she was putting on her earrings, Honey could hear Gia's feet running across her room upstairs.

"Ready, mommy!"

Honey turned around to see her daughter's hair in a ponytail. She squinted her brown eyes. "I thought you wanted your hair down today?"

Gia shook her head. "Today's P.E. day."

"Did you grab your change of clothes?"

Gia nodded, "Yes ma'am."

"Don't forget your journal."

Honey walked off to grab her car keys. Gia followed her. "It's already in my book bag."

Honey sighed happily, "Alright, mini me, vámonos!"

~Special Victims Unit~

This morning was calming, she knew today wasn't going to be rough. But before she could get into her office, Barba's assistant called out for her.


The woman sighed before turning around, "Yes?"

"Barba wanted to see you."

"Okay," Honey said before walking into Barba's office. He was at his desk, reading. He looked up at her.

"Knocking would have been nice."

"You requested me? ¿Que esta pasando?"

"Olivia wants one of us to head to Attica with her, to talk to Tino–"

"She's still pushing this Ellie Porter case?"

Barba nodded, "Seems like it."

"Well, I have some paperwork to finish up so I'll give this one to you. Let me know if you need a consultant."

Barba nodded before packing his suitcase. "Always."

~Special Victims Unit~

"No, River, nothing is wrong with your case...I just wanted to check up on you and your son. What you went through was traumatic."

"No, no. We're that the bad man is in jail, thanks to you."

"Gracias. Just know if you need anything else, don't hesitate to call."

"I won't. Thank you, Ms. Tutuola."

"You're welcome."

After she hung up, Honey smiled. After winning cases, it always made her feel warm inside, like she was a superhero and the bad guys were taken away for good.

As she finished up her paperwork on her last case, her phone started ringing. Seeing who it was, she answered.

"Uncle what I owe the pleasure?"

"You hear about what happened today?"

"Barba told me his visit with Tino the other day went interesting...the guy basically threatened Olivia."

"Yeah, Tino got shivved nine times. One of the girls got shoot along with her John. The shooter that shot at me and Rollins got dealt with. And someone shot up the park that Noah and his babysitter was chilling at."

"Oh my God. No shit. What the hell? Do I need to come down there? Is Barba there?"

"No, stay in your office. I guess I just wanted to call and ask about Gia. I know she ain't apart of this but–"

"But she's still a little girl. No, I get it."

"Where is the little rascal anyway?"

Honey chuckled, "She's in dance class as of right now. Then after that, she has her tutoring session."

"That catholic school treating her okay?"

"Yeah! She likes it."

"That's good. Let me get back to work, I'll talk to you later."

"Maybe you can come over for dinner."


"Hey, I'll head by the precinct later." After they said their goodbyes, they hung up.

~Special Victims Unit~

"Job well done, I heard," Honey said to Barba over the phone.

"It was tricky but I managed without you."

"Ah, don't go break my heart, Rafael."

"Drinks this weekend?"

Honey was walking into the Special Victims Unit building, "Sure, why not? I can drink you under the table."

"Bet on it. See you soon. Bye."

"Bye." Honey sat at her Uncle's desk, she noticed that his jacket was already gone. "Damn, did he step out? Let me text him."

To: Uncle Fin

Hey, where are you?

"Uh, ma'am, you can't sit there."

At the sound of the man's voice, Honey froze. She turned around to see Sonny, her ex boyfriend.

When he saw her face, time stood still. "Honey?"


Author's Note

I've had this little bugger in my head for so long I just had to get it out! I know this story might not become popular since we're lacking some Carisi fanfics. I just love Dominick so much that he deserves some kind of love. what do you all think of the story? do you like it? would you like for me to continue?
