DisclaimerDye-my-hands-yellow and Dye-my-hands-violet would like to present to you a skit for Life with Derek. Derek walks confidently towards Dye-my-hands-violet. He hands a piece of paper to her, and smirks. She opens it and jumps with excitement. Eager to know what it is, Dye-my-hands yellow snatches the paper from her and looks at it. It was a signed document of the makers of Life with Derek handing it all over to Dye-my-hands-violet. In a rage Dye-my-hands-yellow tore it to shreds. And that was the day that I almost owned Life with Derek. I guess I just don't own it and I never will. I'll one day get my sister, no worries!!
Edwin was still staring at them blankly. Casey started to say something, but Derek grabbed her hand and in a rush, Derek ran down the stairs, tugging her the whole way. He took her and stood her in front of his dad. George looked up at them in pure confusion, and Casey's expression wasn't much different. Derek made Casey face him.
"Derek what is this all-"Casey couldn't finish her sentence because Derek placed his lips hard on her, causing her to bend backwards. Her eyes closed, and she put her hand on his cheek. Their mouths didn't open, but that was ok. Casey opened her eyes, and took her lips from Derek.
"Dad, I am crazy about her, and I still haven't figured out why." He said pointing a finger at her, and facing George. Casey was staring at Lizzie who was on the stairs, smiling. George didn't say anything for a few minutes. The look of shock on his face was priceless and Casey couldn't hold back a chuckle.
"Well…I now see why you haven't been with a girl for the past year or so…Err…Um…" He mumbled a few things to himself. "I don't know what to say Derek."
"Say…Say that I can be with her…And that you'll be ok with it." George wasn't looking at them. He was looking at the three kids on the stairs.
"What do you guys think?" He said. Marti smiled.
"Smerek and Casey, sitting' in a tree!" She had grown a lot, but she was still the same Marti.
"Yeah man, let 'em go for it!" Edwin exclaimed.
"Casey is smiling. She hasn't smiled like that in so long. I think they have to be together." Casey blushed at Lizzie's comment. Derek looked at her and smirked. My Derek…
"You don't really need my permission do you?" George said, smiling at them. Casey knew what his answer would be. Derek shook his head 'yes'. "You have it guys." Casey jumped on Derek, making him lose balance. Her arms wrapped around his neck, and she was deliriously happy. Their eyes locked, and Derek wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her.
"Derek." Casey said when their lips parted.
"When I move, I want you to come with me." Derek smirked and looked at his dad. George nodded his head.
"Edwin, pack my things." Derek said while looking in Casey's eyes. She made an angry face. "Fine, I'll pay you." Casey raised her eyebrows. "Scratch that, will you help me pack my things?" She smiled.
"Sure thing bro!"
And from there, everything felt better and better. Casey and Derek moved into the apartment. The 'house' warming party that George threw them was amazing. They got so many gifts, such as dishes and paintings. Her aunt gave them a couch. That party is where they told everyone in their family that they were together. Some of them weren't so open to the idea, but it didn't matter so much because they couldn't do anything about it.
Casey got over her depression. She and Derek, for the most part, got along, but they did have their fights, but when they made up…They really made up.
One night in November, three years into college, Casey missed her period. She took a pregnancy test and found it was positive. Frightened she told Lizzie. Lizzie said to tell Derek, because he was obviously the father.
When she told him, she explained that she could give it up for adoption if he didn't want them to have the baby. He tried to tell her that it would be okay, but she didn't believe him. Derek walked out of the room and came back with a small box.
"Casey, I was saving this till Christmas. I am giving it to you now; to show you how serious I am about you and this baby." He got down on one knee and opened it. Inside was a diamond engagement ring. She smacked him and stood up.
"Quit joking!" He stood up, confused, and rubbing his cheek.
"Casey, I wouldn't do something like this if I wasn't serious."
"Remember when we talked about marriage, you said you weren't sure if you would ever be ready!" He put his hands on her shoulders.
"I know now that I am! Marry me Casey!" She looked at him and didn't say anything. "I don't know what I would do if I lived a day without you. You are my drug. It's you that gets me high. It always has been." She smiled and kissed him. He slipped the ring on her finger and dropped the box.
They had sex on the living room floor. It was her way of saying 'yes'.
