Derek glanced over to the alarm clock on his nightstand and then over to the gorgeous lady curled up on his side and he knew this was bad.

Very very bad.

Not that waking up to this beautiful woman was bad, because it wasn't. She was the love of his life and he's loved her since the second he laid eyes on her all those years ago. But today of all days was not the day the alarm clock should have failed to work. Now he was going to have to wake her up and let her realize that she was going to be late. Late for her first day at a job that she is already freaking out about and scared of starting already.

"Honey."He gently said while brushing the hair from her eyes. "It's time to get up, you're going to be late."

"Hmmm 5 more minutes, Der." She sighed while curling further into him, her arm snaking its way across his waist as she used him as a human pillow. Her own personal human pillow.

"I would love nothing more than to give you 5 more minutes, or better yet not leave bed at all, but I have a feeling you'd kill me if I let you sleep in and miss your first day. It's late, hun."

"Mean, mean man. Keep me up all night playing games and now you don't let me sleep. No more role playing today for you."

Derek smiled and bit back the laughter at how adorable she was and how she wanted to blame him on last nights games. Wanting to relive last night sounded like a great idea. However, a bad one since she was do in for work very very soon.

"It's 7 o'clock, you have an hour to make it in." Bracing myself for her reaction when that piece of information processes. As if right on cue, she jumps out of my arms and the bed like a crazy adorable woman.

"WHAT? 7? 7 O'clock. Crap crap crap. I'm going to be late and this is so not the way first days are supposed to go. Especially my first day, of course my first day would start off like this. It's not like I don't have enough strikes against me. Now I'm going up late and everyone who is going to hate me anyways is going to hate me even more." She rants while trying to change, brush her teeth and make coffee all at the same time.

Living in a trailer out in the middle of nowhere works very well for instances like these when you don't have time to walk far from your bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and need all three at the same time. Derek is waiting for her to freak out more and blame her sleeping in on him and it still hasn't come yet.

"You know what, this is your fault mister? Mr. Lets go to the bar near the hospital and get drunk and play games. You make the coffee and hurry and change. I'm going to be late for my first day" She stops suddenly while making her eyes into narrow slits and looks at him.

"And don't even think about joining me in the shower. You're banned for the day." She said seriously.

"Banned from what?" Derek sobered from looking at her cute pacing to wonder what I was banned from.

"Banned from touching, no touching, no kissing, no sex, no none of the things you did last night. No matter how wonderful those things were. None of it, not until the end of the working day."


"No buts, coffee, change, hurry, go"
