A/N: Ok, so I've been asked by a couple of people to do a sequel to my fic… "Oh Very Young". So, here it is. I guess you don't have to really read the first one to get this one… but I would appreciate it if you did.


"Derek, have you seen my…"

"Keys?" He answered, dangling her car keys in front of her.

"Aww… thanks… Where were they this time?"

"Samantha hid them in a now empty cookie jar."

"That daughter of ours is getting smarter and smarter."

"Indeed she is." Derek laughed, leaning in for a kiss.

"Sam! Nice try… I found my keys, lets go to pre-school." Meredith called from the bottom of the stairs.

The four-year-old came bouncing down the stairs, he long chesnut locks bouncing with her. Derek was always amazed at how much his daughter looked like Meredith. Of course she did inherit her father's cheekiness.

When Samantha got to the bottom of the stairs, she made a flying leap into her fathers arms. "You really need to stop hiding mommy's keys kiddo." Derek said, setting his daughter down.

"Maybe mommy should hide her keys, so I don't find them." Samantha stated proudly.

"She's not just getting smarter, she's getting more and more like you Derek." Meredith laughed, "ok kiddo, let's go!" She gave Derek a kiss goodbye. "See you later Chief Shepard."

"Bye Daddy."

"Oh, and before I forget to tell you. Burke's going to pick up Sam from pre-school and take her to play with Charlie and Sara, so can you pick her up at their place? I have a craniotomy at four and I don't know how long its going to take."

"Of course. I still cant believe that Dr Burke has two kids and one more on the way." He said to Meredith, then directing his voice to Samantha "Have a good day pumpkin."


"Dr. Grey, there's someone at the Nurses desk asking for you." One of Meredith's interns told her.

"Thanks Jodi." Meredith said, making her way downstairs.

Meredith knew who her mystery visitor was within seconds of walking down the stairs.


"Hello Dr. Grey. Didn't want to change your name to Shepard huh?" He answered smoothly.

"Didn't want it to get confusing at work. What the hell are you doing here?" She asked.

"Just coming to see my favourite ex-girlfriend."

Meredith rolled her eyes, "we haven't seen each other since-"

"Prom? Ever wonder what happened to me after your husband got me kicked out?"

"Honestly Finn, I didn't really care. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work."

Meredith turned to walk away but Finn grabbed her arm and turned her back around. "I got expelled Meredith!" He whispered harshly. "I wasn't allowed to graduate. It took me another year to graduate. I lost all of my scholarships. I perform operations of fucking dogs and cats because of you and your precious husband!"

Meredith managed to pull her arm free. "Leave me and my family the hell alone."

She turned again, and this time Finn grabbed her shoulders and whispered in her ear, "you've built yourself quite a backbone Meredith. It's a real turn on." Then he let go and left.

Meredith stood still, breathing heavily, finally getting startled by her pager. It was the ER. She sighed heavily and made her way to the ER.
