You Look Lovely Tonight.

-I wrote this after seeing a promo picture for the Season finaleā€¦ it's a happy ever after for Mer/Der.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After yet another pep talk given to Christina about marrying Burke, she stood outside, breathing slowly. She was happy for Christina, of course she was; but all Meredith could think about was her earlier conversation with Derek. 'I met a girl last night' and 'you should be worried' he had said. Those words had stung just as bad as her fathers slap in the face. She hadn't seen him all afternoon. Now all she could thing about was having to face him at the alter. When Christina had told Meredith that Derek was going to be Preston's Best Man, the tiniest feather could have and would have knocked her over. She would have to look at him through the ceremony, hold hands with him after, get into a limosine with him, sit with him during dinner and dance with him at least once. The thought scared her to death.

As she stood outside, looking into the beautiful garden behind the church, contemplating her current situation she heard rustling to the left of her. She turned.

It was Derek.

"You look beautiful." He said, making his way over to her.

"Trying to picture the girl you met at Joe's wearing it?" She said coldly.

"I guess I deserve that."

She looked up at him, "What do you want from me Derek. When you wanted space, I gave you space, when you were hovering, I let you hover. When you told me you didn't want to breathe for me anymore, I got someone else to. What else do you want from me?"

"I wanted to breathe for you." He said, lowering his head.

"You told me you didn't want to breathe for me anymore."

"I was wrong ok? I was wrong! After what happened with your father, I wanted to help you. I saw you drinking with Alex and Izzie and I wanted to be there. When you had your test, it killed me when Christina said that she would handle things." He moved closer to her, taking her hands in his. "I want to breathe for you because all you've ever done is breathe for me. After what happened with Addison, you were my breathe of fresh air." He looked deeply into her eyes, "I love you Meredith. You're it for me. I'm done."
