We all get by with a little help from our friends  
Their day at the Brownstone had gone fairly well. There was a lot of pain and plenty of tears were shed, but at the end of it all, Addison and Derek had managed to find each other again. They were starting over, beginning a new life. It wasn't so much a clean slate because their past was always going to be there, but they were finally getting past it and letting go, moving on with their lives so they could be happy the way they should be.

After they'd spent the rest of their afternoon together shopping and doing other "things," they decided to give their friends and family a call, knowing that they'd never be able to live it down if someone found out that they were back in New York and didn't bother to tell anyone. Addison had called Savvy and Weiss first before calling Derek's mom. The plan soon became having dinner with Savvy and Weiss that evening and lunch with Mama Shepherd the next day.

Now they were at their friends' house. Derek was out in the living room with Weiss while Addison stayed in the kitchen to help Savvy.

Derek grinned knowingly, nodding in agreement. He glanced over at Addison briefly and pressed a supportive kiss to her cheek before looking back to Savvy and Weiss.

"I'm just grateful that we've found something to do with it," Derek responded, nodding his head in Addison's direction as he teased, "Someone doesn't like to part with things that remind her of her precious New York."

"New York is home," Addison argued softly, "And I don't think we've even encountered having to give anything up, so you have no proof...yet."

She poked him in the ribs and settled back against the couch, turning her attention to Savvy and Weiss. She knew that her friends would put the house to good use, and they really did deserve it. They couldn't have given it to a better couple. She was, however, going to miss it and all of the memories it held. She'd also miss having some place to escape to, but she was sure to find such a place in Seattle.

Savvy had settled back into the arm chair, her arms folded across her chest as she watched the exchange. She hadn't seen her friends this genuinely concerned and interested in each other for sometime now, and it was certainly fun to watch. This happiness was something they both deserved.

"I don't think he has much room to talk as long as you're still living in a trailer, right Add?" She wondered with a grin.

Addison grinned over at Savvy and nodded. "You couldn't be more correct, Sav," she said, glad that she had someone on her side here.

That was rarely ever the case in Seattle. No one besides maybe Miranda would stand up for her during and argument there, but here in New York, things were different. She had friends, people she considered family. That was always the hardest thing to part with.

"Why am I thinking that even if I did get rid of the trailer there would just be another reason I couldn't voice my opinion?" Derek teased with a grin, glancing to Weiss for a bit of support.

Weiss nodded in agreement and glanced back and forth at both women, "Yeah, why is it that us men never get a say in anything? So much for equality in a marriage."
dr_shep on June 10th, 2007 04:51 am (UTC)
Savvy kicked her foot out again, nudging him in the leg disapprovingly, "The reason you men married us was because of our wildly attractive good looks and because we know whats best for you. We're just doing what's best for you."

"Exactly," Addison agreed, nodding her head and smirking over at Derek and Weiss. "We are always right, which is why you should never argue and always listen to what we have to say."

"We keep it interesting," Derek answered definitively, "You like the challenge of us."

Instinctively, he pulled her a little bit closer to him. Moments like these were something they hadn't had in a long time, and it was only serving to remind him of everything he'd almost lost. He knew he would never forget again.
