Facing the Past (hurting more than he ever thought possible)  
Derek lifted the styrofoam cup of coffee to his lips as his eyes scanned the slowly brightening city in front of him. He'd pulled one of the hotel chairs out to the balcony and positioned it in the open doorway so he was outside but could still hear Addison when she finally decided to wake up which he was hoping wouldn't happen anytime soon.

It wasn't that he didn't want to see her. Addison had this instinsctive way of always making everything better for Derek. She seemed to know exactly what he was thinking and what he needed without words ever needed to be exchanged. It was an advantage of having spent a dozen years together. Addison knew Derek probably better than Derek knew himself.

And that was exactly why Derek didn't want her to wake up. He was alone in the silence of the early morning with only his thoughts to keep him company. Right now, he needed to be alone. He didn't need to subject Addison to everything going on inside him. She was much better sleeping peacefully in the large, comfortable bed 15 feet away than she would have been keeping Derek company as he attempted to face his own personal ghosts, his self-pitying thoughts.

It was these thoughts that had rattled Derek from his slumber not once but twice. The first time, Derek hadn't been asleep more than an hour when his dreams had taken him to the Brownstone. He'd been a third person observer watching as he enclosed his hands around Addison's small wrists and threw her from their home and into the rain. As soon as the door had slammed in her face, Derek had been wrenched into consciousness, a sob choked in his throat and hands shaking in emotion.

Addison had almost stirred, but Derek had convinced her to roll over so she was no longer in his arms and go back to sleep.

After calming down, centering his emotions, Derek had drifted back to sleep only to have his dreams drift back to that night, again. Only, this time, he was stuck standing in the door of the bedroom just watching as Mark Sloan thrust into his wife as tongue traced along her lips. He was assaulted with this site for what felt like eternity until he was finally able to wake up and stop reliving that moment.

Deciding that sleep was obviously a terribly idea, Derek had left Addison asleep and gone down to the hotel lobby in search of coffee.

He'd found exactly what he was looking for and returned to their hotel room, settling himself in this spot and watching the city as he attempted to straighten out his thoughts about their impending trip to the Brownstone, biding his time until Addison would wake up.

Addison awoke to the chilly air hitting her bare arms. As her eyes fluttered open, she instinctively reached for Derek but her hands were met with the cold sheets from the lack of his body heat. She squinted at the alarm clock to check the time. It was only 6:12.

A sinking feeling came over her as she rubbed her eyes. It only got worse when she realized it was 6:12 the following day, the day she and Derek were supposed to go to the Brownstone.

The wonderful time spent with Derek the previous day and sleep had been able to take her mind off of those things. But now, everything was very real. It was all going to happen today and what would come was completely unknown. The fear that Derek had left because of the same nervousness crept in her mind.

She hated being so weak like this. It wasn't like her, and it wasn't supposed to be something she should be feeling. She was supposed to have faith that they would make it, and she did, but she knew there was a lot more pain to come before anything truly good could come for them.

Slowly, Addison sat up, holding the sheets to her body as she rubbed her eyes. She felt another chill and looked to the balcony, spotting Derek sitting there. A sigh of relief escaped her lips as she was glad that he was still here, but the look on his face said it all.

Derek was scared too. She could see that they shared the same fears about their impending day and everything that would come with being at the Brownstone again. It was only natural after everything had happened. There was a lot to get past and it certainly wasn't going to be easy for either of them.

Addison got out of bed and tied a robe around herself before padding over to Derek. She wrapped her arms around his neck from behind and kissed his cheek softly. "It's still early, Derek. Come back to bed," she said quietly.

Derek's eyes drifted closed, and he inhaled deeply. Addison's arms around him seemed to have an instant soothing effect, and he felt minutely better. Eyes still closed, he reached his hand up to trail his fingers along her arm, trying to come up with something to say.

He didn't want to go back to bed at first. The night had been horrible and fitful, and the prosect of going back to sleep frightened him. Although, he figured that sleep wasn't necessarily a requirement if they returned to bed. Laying with Addison in his arms and talking to her wouldn't be all bad. In fact, it had potential to be comforting.

But Derek kept running his fingers along her forearms and his eyes closed for several moments. He liked just sitting here being reminded of Addison's support by her mere presence and their physical contact.

"I can't sleep," He admitted softly, turning his head to press a soft kiss at the corner of her mouth. It wasn't really a lie. He could sleep very easily, but the terrors that would accompany that sleep would have been too much for him to handle.

Sighing softly, he drained the last of the coffee before suggesting, "But I'll come back to bed and hold you while you get some sleep."

Addison let out a laugh as she pulled out a pencil skirt and a red blouse from her suitcase and set them on the bed. "I'm sure everyone down in the lobby would enjoy that, but I don't think so," she said smiling.

It was a wonder how she and Derek could still be in this happy and playful mood when both of them knew that sadness lie ahead of them. Maybe it was denial, maybe they were just trying to prolong the inevitable. Whatever it was, Addison didn't really mind it. She didn't need a constant reminder of the impending pain and recollection of their past. Addison and Derek were supposed to be happy, and for now, they were.

She moved to her other suitcase and opened it, grabbing her undergarments from it. Those too were set onto the bed before she unwrapped the towel around her and began to get dressed.
dr_shep on March 31st, 2007 04:23 am (UTC)
Derek smirked at her statement, responding after a moment's contemplation, "Well, all that really matters is that I would enjoy it, right?"

He was bound and determined not to let them slip from their happiness, at least not yet. They were happy, and Derek didn't really believe there was anything false about their happiness. Sure, they were setting their past aside, but the happiness was legitimate. And that was what made the potential of facing the pain hurt even more. Even a week ago he hadn't been happy with Addison. They were happy now, and he hated to give that up.

So, Derek vowed to keep the pain from their past isolated to their time at the Brownstone. There was no reason to drag the rest of their life down just because they had unfinishedd business.

Still smirking, he watched as she dropped her towel and revealed her body. He watched for a moment before scooting from his spot on the bed so that he was sitting next to her clothing with his feet hanging over the bed.

He grabbed her wrist so he could urge her down for a fleeting kiss, "I love you, Addie."

Addison quickly found comfort in the strength of Derek's grasp around her waist. Everytime she was with Derek, she just felt so at home because this was her home. She belonged by Derek's side and nowhere else. Life wouldn't be complete without being with him, the love of her life.

Right now, he was holding on to her, and she could only hope that he would still do that later on when they were at the Brownstone. None of it was going to be easy, but if they stayed this close, physically and emotionally, maybe it wouldn't be as bad as it really could be.

"Oh, okay," Addison said softly, not being able to think of anything to say. She was too lost in focusing on being with Derek.

Luckily, the elevator doors opened and they had to step out so others could get on and ride the elevator up to their respective floors. She took his hand in hers and laced their fingers together as they walked toward the eating area.
dr_shep on April 2nd, 2007 10:56 pm (UTC)
Derek squeezed Addison's hand as they walked through the lobby and got in line for the buffet food. He brought her hand to his lips and kissed the back of her hand, smiling at her.

"What kind of breakfast is this for the price we're paying?" Derek wondered under his voice in her ear.

Addison slowly stepped into their previous home but didn't go very far, standing by the door and waiting for Derek because she felt like she really needed to be by him right now. She could almost hear the rain from that night beating against the windows and the pavement outside. She could see herself chasing him down those stairs and then holding onto the rails for her dear life when his hands gripped her arms.

They were supposed to make it through this, but they were never supposed to end up here in the first place. She knew deep down that Derek loved her and together they were strong enough to fight this. But now she was scared, scared that Derek would somehow stop seeing that and a repeat of that night would happen. She couldn't bear to see the hurt in his eyes or the anger directed towards her across his face.

She let out a sigh and glanced around, many of their memories, good and bad, coming back to her. Looking to Derek, she waited for some sort of reaction, something she could work off of or find some reassurance.
dr_shep on April 7th, 2007 07:22 am (UTC)
Derek wished he could see beyond the last time he'd been in the Brownstone. He wished he could see beyond walking up the stairs slowly, the sinking feeling in his gut growing as he stepped over Mark's leather jacket. He wished he could see beyond Mark doing things to his wifethat only he was entitled to, beyond throwing their comforter and many of Addison's clothes into the rain, beyond forcing his wife into the rain.

He glanced back to the front door as he shut it behind him and desperately tried to see walking into the Brownstone for the first time, Addison at his side, but the door only inspired memories of leaving after finding his wife with his best friend. And the stairs didn't inspire memories of the many nights they had pulled each other up them, lips locked, as they headed for the bedroom, instead all he saw was yanking Addison from her spot as she gripped the railing for dear life.

Everywhere he looked seemed to inspire a memory from that night. It was as if it had consumed the Brownstone. Derek ran his hand through his hair, stepping in further, aimlessly, before glancing back at her. It hurt worst of all when he looked at her and could barely see the Addison standing before him, the Addison he had kissed countless times just that morning and professed his love to a million times. Instead, she was the woman who had betrayed everything that was sacrd to him, the woman who had given herself to Mark Sloan.

He didn't want to see that Addison. That Addison hurt him. She was someone he wasn't sure he could love.

Tears stung at his eyes as he wordlessly started for the stairs.

There was never a time when Addison had been more terrified in her life, with maybe the exception of that night when Derek walked into their bedroom and found Mark on top of her. That night and this moment were one and the same. The most important things in her life were on the line, and only Derek controlled whether or not she would lose everything. It was over the same issue, her infidelity, but this time it was worse with the added complication that she'd been pregnant with another man's child.

This whole trip was about believing in Addison and Derek and that they could make it. The plane ride was ridden with angst because she was so scared that they weren't strong enough to face this. The entire day before, they'd done everything the way the old Addison and Derek used to do it, living in bliss and not letting anything bother them. They were building the foundation, making memories to strengthen their faith in themselves.

Addison wanted to believe in them, but when things hurt this much and when Derek would barely look at her, she had to have doubts. It was only natural to think that there was a possibility that Derek wouldn't be able to forgive her. Sometimes, she couldn't even forgive herself. She couldn't expect him to, no matter how much she wished he would.

At the sound of Derek's voice calling her name, Addison lifted her head up from her knees, tears still streaking down her face and a wet spot gracing the bottom of her skirt. She stood and crossed her arms in front of her body protectively, mentally preparing herself for what was about to happen as she walked toward the foyer to get to Derek.

"Yeah?" she managed to get out in a raspy voice. She stood there, frozen in place as she looked at Derek. He looked sad, almost defeated, but she didn't know what that meant for them. She decided that she would let him express everything that he needed before she would jump to conclusions, so her gaze stayed upon him while tears slowly ran down her face.
dr_shep on April 9th, 2007 05:11 pm (UTC)
They'd been married for 12 years, and Derek could count on one hand the number of times he hadn't comforted Addison when she had cried. So, to see her standing there with tears streaming down her face and to not pull her into his arms was against everything he was accustomed to, but he also couldn't bring himself to hold her. Not yet.

He still had a lot he needed to say. They had a lot they needed to cover. Their marriage was much stronger now than it had been over the last year, but it was still in shambles. He just needed to talk. And, in this case, he knew honesty was the best policy. Addison would listen and understand because she was Addison.

"There are a lot of things I don't know, Addison," He finally spoke weakly. "I don't know how you could have done this to me; it's unfathomable. I don't know how to forgive you. And I certainly don't know how to move on and forget what you've done."

He paused for a moment to draw in a shaky beath and observe her reaction before continuing, "But you're Addison. Something in me knows tht you wouldn't have done this unprovoked. You would never do this to me if you thought you had another option."

"And I keep thinking back to that night, before Mark. You tried to--you tried to get me to make love to you, and I opted for sleep. I heard you crying yourself to sleep, and that's all I can hear now."

Derek ran his hand through his hair and sighed heavily, "I guess what I'm trying to say is that I know you're not the only one to blame."

Addison snuggled against him, leaning into his body and letting her head rest on his shoulder. Her hand went to his side as she wrapped her arm around his waist. She'd missed this feeling, the feeling of being in Derek's arms even though it hadn't been incredibly long since he held her last.

She was glad that Derek was being so understanding about this. Giving up their homes in New York was a thought that was going to take some time to get used to. It was still home. New York was their home, even though their life was in Seattle now. It still felt like home, and that wasn't going to go away very easily. New York was full of memories, family, and friends. Selling the Brownstone and their place in the Hamptons just felt like it officially terminated that part of their lives.

"Thank you for understanding, Derek," Addison murmured softly. "I just...I think I'm going to need some time to get accustomed to the idea."

Derek nodded, pulling her closer to his body. He tilted his head and rested it atop Addison's. It felt good to hold her in his arms, to bring her closer. It was almost a mutual statement that they wer going to make it, that everything was on the road to being okay.

He really did understand the need for time before they got rid of their houses. Even a few weeks ago it would have been easier to put them on the market. They were so distant from each other emotionally that there was little emotional attachment to things that symbolized Derek and Addison, but it was different now. They had been happy in both of these houses, and he didn't want to get rid of that yet.

But he also wondered if getting rid of these houses would force them to make a life in Seattle. Sure they had succesful careers in Seattle. In fact, their pay in Seattle had significantly increased from what it had been in New York. But they'd never made Seattle home. They still didn't understand the city. And they needed to do that. They needed to stop avoiding it. And, if New York wasn't there to fall back on, maybe they could.

"I know, Addie. It's still home," He agreed softly, "Maybe we could wait until we get more settled in Seattle."

"I love you too, Derek," she smiled, looking lovingly into his eyes. She brought her hand up, running her fingers along the side of his neck before cupping the back of his head. She pulled him closer and pressed her lips against his, kissing him softly and slipping her tongue between his lips.

They'd been through so much today, having gotten through most of their problems. It was certainly one of the most difficult things they'd ever done, but she was surprised at how well it went. It hurt just as much as she thought it would, maybe even more, but to see them recover like this was unbelievable. She had faith that they could make it through everything, but she hadn't anticipated them getting back here so quickly. The pain was already beginning to subside, and Derek was still here loving her.

Their tongues danced along one another as her fingers tangled in his hair. She ran it down the top of his spine, scraping her nails across his skin. Moments later, she pulled away breathless and pressed her forehead against his.
dr_shep on April 19th, 2007 03:18 am (UTC)
Derek smiled softly, their heavy breaths minging in the space between them. He tilted his head and closed the space between their mouths for another fleeting kiss, flexing the hands he'd placed on either side of her waist slightly.

The fact that they could move past everything that had hurt them so quickly and come out on top mostly unscathed was a testament to Derek and Addison. They could do anything and never lose what they had. As long as Addison was by his side, Derek knew he could face anything. And that was what made everyhing even more amazing. Twelve years later she was all he really needed.

"Do you want to go get lunch?" He finally wondered, punctuating each of his words with fleeting ksses.

"Well, who isn't already jealous of me?" Addison asked, smirking over at him as she traced small, random patterns onto the back of his hand. "I am one of the country's foremost neonatal surgeons, and I'm married to their beloved McDreamy."

She smiled at him, glad that they could leave so much of their pain behind them. Forgetting any of it wasn't going to be easy, and they may never be able to succeed in doing so, but if they could just get past it, it wouldn't be a problem for them. Looking at the big picture, none of that really mattered for them because it was simply a part of their past which didn't affect where they were headed anymore. Addison and Derek could still be Addison and Derek.
dr_shep on April 22nd, 2007 07:09 am (UTC)
"Oh they're all jealous of McHot," Derek assured her with a smirk before shifting his gaze back to his driving, "It's really no different than anywhere else. My stock rises exponentially when the see the sexy New York Goddess I was able to woo into marrying me."

It was the truth. Addison was absolutely his better half, and he knew that just being married to her had made him the envy of everyone they knew. It certainly wasn't the only reason he loved her, but it made everything much more fun when they appeared together as a couple.

Addison laughed softly and wrapped her arms around his neck, leaning forward to give him and eskimo kiss. "Or...you could strip for me before you give me good sex," she offered, smirking as she closed the distance between their lips and kissed him languidly for several moments.

She pulled away and ran her tongue across her lips briefly as she looked into his eyes. Being this close to him, physically and emotionally, felt absolutely perfect. She could never feel this way just standing around after enjoying a hotdog with anyone else. Only Derek made everything so right.
dr_shep on April 24th, 2007 06:05 am (UTC)
Derek grinned as she pulled away from the kiss. He was certain those passing them on the street were probably pretty judgmental. Two fully grown adults in each other's arms and kissing like teenagers on the busy sidwalks of New York, but he honestly didn't care.

"Well, I wasn't planning on being clothed for the good sex," Derek answered, giving her the most pitiful eyes he could muster before wondering, "Doesn't that count?"

"I do look gorgeous in everything, don't I?" Addison grinned, feeling completely content with this moment. They were pushing past everything to be happy, to be Addison and Derek. No matter how much pain they'd gone through before, this was still perfect.

She glanced down at the red blouse in her hand, tilting her head to the side in thought before she looked back up at Derek. "If you really want, I think this blouse might go well with that miniskirt," she suggested with a raised eyebrow.
dr_shep on April 26th, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC)
Derek took a moment to observe the blouse and then glance back up to Addison's face before raising an eyebrow curiously, "Really? You would wear that miniskirt?"

Addison changed into a casual black dress, one that reminded her of something she already had, but in a slight variation (the belt was slightly smaller). When she heard the creeking of the stall door, she figured it was Derek, and with one last look at herself in the mirror, she turned and opened the door too.

Pressing her lips together, she turned her head in his direction and saw him. She smiled and stepped out of the stall, giving him a quick twirl before she stepped in front of him. "I think I liked the last one better, but this is still nice," Addison said, tilting her head to the side.
dr_shep on May 6th, 2007 07:27 pm (UTC)
"Don't you already have that dress?" Derek cocked an eyebrow curiously as he glanced down between them at the familiar dress she was wearing. He tugged at the sleeves of his suit slightly, adjusting the way the jacket fell, "Which one do you want me to get?"

After slipping out of the dress, Addison put it back on the hanger and hung it up on one of the hooks. She turned back around and wrapped her arms around his neck, leaning forward to kiss him briefly. "Possibly," she answered with a soft smile, "But not this time, just because you're giving me a show tonight."
dr_shep on May 10th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
Derek smirked, bringing his lips back to hers as he trailed his fingers along her bare lower back.

"If I get to wrap my arms around half naked you, you can spend my money on whatever you want," He wrapped his arms tigther around her and pulled her closer into his body.

"You do that," Addison responded with a grin, slipping her hand out of his pocket and resting it on his hip. She hugged him tighter, pressing her body against his side as they continued walking.

The hotel soon came into view, and she turned to smile at him. Their remainder of they day was bound to be fun and playful, the two of them being Addison and Derek as they're supposed to be.

Derek returned Addison's smile, capturing her lips in a quick kiss as they crossed the parking lot to the front door. He pulled away from her, and he opened the door, allowing her to enter first. He soon found his way back to her, draping his arm around her waist as they crossed the lobby, "When can we get started on this kaboom?"

Addison shut her eyes and let out a rather loud groan as Derek's fingers made contact with her sensitive bundle of nerves, pressing the back of her head into the mattress and stopping the movements of her leg for a moment. She opened her eyes and glared at him after she'd adjusted to the pressure on her clit. "Now who's not playing fair?" she huffed. "I wasn't even touching you."

Since Derek was off balance with his hand underneath her skirt, she used this opportunity to flip them over again so that she was on top. She quickly moved away from his hand, swinging her leg off of him and laying against his side. Her hands moved quickly to unbuckle his belt and undo his pants. Once the task was done, she slipped her hand underneath the elastic waistband of his boxers and began to stroke his growing hardness.

Derek's hips jerked instinctively as Addison's hand slid along him expertly. Though Addison's words were still competitive, Derek was getting the distinct impression their wager was long gone as he could feel just how wet she was becoming with his fingers. As he continued to stroke her clit, his other hand slid up the front of her shirt and pinched one of her nipples.

"Giving up yet?" He managed as best he could between his heavy breaths, attempting to smirk at her.

Addison smiled briefly against his lips before she began to respond entirely to the kiss, sliding her tongue over his over and over again. She kissed him languidly, her arms wrapping tighter around his neck and pulling him closer. Her fingers played with the short hairs at the nape of his neck as she tilted her head to deepen the kiss.

The fact that they could be here and feeling like this after everything they'd gone through made her feel incredibly happy. Only a week before, they were at the worst point in their marriage, on the brink of divorce. Yet somehow, they had managed to get back here and were happier than they'd ever been, even though they were facing their past. They were moving on to be better than the Addison and Derek they were once before. They were changed people now, and because of everything they'd overcome, their love was so much stronger.

Her hands came forward to cup his face, her palms gently pressing against his cheeks. She broke the kiss and leaned her forehead against his, keeping her eyes closed. "I love you so much, Derek," she whispered softly.


(OOC: Nuh uh! This post is so cute. I love love love it...almost as much as I love you...ehh naw, I love you way too much for it to be 'almost' :P.)

Derek smiled, his eyes slowly drifting open and meeting hers. He tilted his slightly and brushed his lips across hers in a fleeting kiss, "I love you too, Addison."

He ran his hands along her back, tracing aimless patterns along the fabric of her blouse. He kissed her again, taking her lower lip between his and sucking firmly for several moments before musing, "How is it that you're still muchmore clothed than I am?"

Addison let out a small laugh as she pushed his pants and boxers further until they pooled around his ankles. "Well you have been doing it for over twelve years," she said, smiling and bringing her hands to the bottom of his shirt to pull it over his head.
dr_shep on May 28th, 2007 08:57 pm (UTC)
Derek nodded, grinning as he lifted his hands above his head to allow Addison to pull his shirt over his head. He wrapped one arm around her waist, resting it at the small of her back and pulling her closer once she'd done that, "I plan on doing it for the next 50 years."

He brushed his lips across hers and reached his other hand to undo the clasp of her bra.
