Okay, I think I may cry. This is big for me. The very last chapter. This is technically my first finished multiple chapter story. All my other ones were either oneshots, or twoshots. It's been a long time coming-Breaks into song...Stops Singing- but I want to thank all my readers and reviewers! I hope you guys have enjoyed this story, and will keep reading my stuff.

Ah! I love you all!

.I own nothing.

Enjoy: The Last Chapter (:


"Would you look at Casey McDonald?"

Derek looked up from his locker, and turned to where the voice had come from.

"That girl is one fine piece of ass. And she's pretty rough, too. And you all know how I like it rough." Billy Link laughed, his arms crossed, looking in the direction of Casey, who was digging through her and Emily's locker. Billy was surrounded by friends who were nodding in agreement about Casey. "I'm going to get a piece of that. Just you watch."

Smiling Derek walked over to Billy and his group of fiends.

"Hey, Venturi, I was just-" Billy started saying.

But he was cut off, because his teeth were met by Derek's fist.

Billy fell to the ground, everyone in his group backed up, afraid that they would be next.

Fuck, man!" Billy yelled, looking up angrily at Derek, who was still fixedly smirking. "What the hell was that about?"

Derek leaned down slightly and said, "I would really appreciate it if you never talked about my girlfriend in that, or any other way, ever again. Unless your gut would like to meet my fist as well."

Billy's eyes widened. "What? Your girlfriend?"

Derek turned around, still smirking, but he was met by the also smirking face of the librarian.

"Mr. Venturi." She acknowledged.

Derek grimaced. "See you Saturday?"

The librarian seemed to think about this for a moment.

"No, I believe I've had my full share of you." She smiled. "And don't worry about that fool." She said, and they both glanced at Billy, who was stumbling to his feet with the aid of his friends. "I caught him in the library not too long ago, and, well, let's just say: It wasn't the prettiest sight. He's not going to say a thing if I have anything to say about it." She smiled.

"Thanks, Mrs. Kojadinovich." Derek smiled.

"Ugh, please." she shook her head. "Keep calling me the librarian."

Derek chuckled. "Will do."

"Now. Vamoose!" the librarian ordered, with a wink.

Derek obliged, crossing the hall, ignoring that everyone in the hall was staring at him with their jaws dropped, as he walked over to Casey, who was now standing in front of her locker, arms crossed, and smiling at him.

"Tsk, tsk. Such a violent one, now aren't we. Don't you ever learn?" Casey grinned.

"Nope." he said, before pulling her in for a small kiss on the lips. They could almost hear the collective gasps of everyone around them.

Pulling apart, Derek slipped his arms around Casey's waist, as they both glanced at their surroundings.

Needless to say, the only ones who didn't look completely shocked, were Emily, Sam, and Steve, who were standing together, and smiling at them. Sam had his arm around Emily. Everyone else had their wide eyes fixed on Casey and Derek. Quickly, the whispers started.

Turning away from all the faces, Casey looked at Derek.

"Are you ready for this?" She chuckled, her eyebrow raised.

Derek leaned down and kissed Casey again, before pulling away, and holding out his hand. Smiling, Casey took it.

"With you?" Derek smirked. "I'm ready for anything."

And then, hand in hand they made their way down the hall, ignoring all the gawking faces.

Because, really, who has time for nosey peers, when you have your own happy ending music to listen to? Together.


I know it was extremely short, but really, what else was there to say?

Review, my loves.

Love always,
