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.

"I know," Derek responded softly, chancing a glance from the road to smile at her.

They'd already faced some really tough issues on this trip, but Derek could definitely repeat her sentiment. Being back here seemed to bring out something they'd been lacking in Seattle. It brought out something they'd been lacking since long before Seattle, if he were willing to admit it.

And he just hoped they wouldn't lose that after heading back to the land of rain and interns. He deftly changed lanes, glancing over his shoulder briefly before murmuring softly, "I love you, Addie."
