Authors Note: This is the end, I hope you all loved it. I do however apologize if any of you were irritated by the last two chapters being songfics, it just seemed to fit. If anyone has any ideas on another story i should do, or a challenge please let me know. I had a lot of fun writing this and reading all your great reviews.

Thanks so much for reading this. ‚ô•Meg


Ohhh Ohhh

yeah

Casey stood and walked towards him, her mind was on auto pilot. 'Body stop, I don't know if I can do this. Mind tell me what's going on , explain why this is happening. Eyes don't look at him, you can never fight that gaze that penetrates to the soul.'

my skin is like a map

of where my heart has been

and I can hide the marks

but its not a negative thing

so lay down my guard

drive my defenses

down by my clothes

I'm learning to fall

with no safety net

to cushion the blow

Casey reached him and they just stared at each other. The music seemed to get louder, and the beat matched the rhythms of their hearts.

I bruise easily

so be gentle

when you handle me

there's a mark you leave

like a love heart

carved on a tree

I bruise easily

can't scratch the surface

without moving me

underneath

I bruise easily

I bruise easily

'My turn' Derek grazed Casey's cheek and pulled her face closer to his. "Don't push me away this time."She nodded and their lips touched. Her hands snaked around his neck, his tangled themselves in her hair.

I found you finger prints

on a glass of whine

did you know your leaving them

all over this heart of mine too

if never take

this leap of faith

I'll never know

so learning to fall

with no safety net

to cushion the blow

Who knows how long they were kissing, when they came up for breath their eyes never left each other. "Are you okay?" Casey nodded.

"This isn't fair."

"Why not?"

"Because you turned the tables on me."She smiled then continued kissing him.

I bruise easily

so be gentle

when you handle me

there's a mark you leave

like a love heart

I bruise easily

Casey pulled him closer to her, but lost her balance and began to fall back onto her bed. Derek caught her and guided her to the bed. Clothing was soon removed. Derek saw in her eyes how uncomfortable she was being in front of him this way so then quickly moved under the covers.

Anyone who

can touch you

can hurt you

or heal you

Anyone who can reach you

can love you

or leave you

"Derek, umm.." Casey looked away from him blushing a bit.

"Casey, I know. I promise your safe with me."

so be gentle

so be gentle

so be gentle

The song continued to play in the background. But it wasn't heard as loud as before. Derek and Casey were lost in the moment, it was faded and blurred just like before. They were the only two that existed.

' This is what love feels like. I like this feeling and don't want to let it go.'

"Happy Birthday Casey. Make a wish."

Casey giggled, "It already came true."

Derek kissed her lightly on the forehead. Both drifted off to sleep in each others arms.
