Rating: K+

Casey opened her door and said good-bye to Emily. She dropped her shopping bags on the floor and took of her coat. The house was eerily quite.

"Anyone home?" She called.

"No." Yelled Derek in his room. Casey rolled her eyes.

She picked up her bags and made her way to her room, and put her bags on the floor. She lay down on her bed, staring at eth ceiling.

A knock came at her door.

"Hey Casey, can I come in?" Derek asked softly.

"Sure." Casey said, sitting up. Derek came in, with his guitar.

"I wrote you a song. Wanna hear it?" He asked after sitting next to her on the bed.

"Um, sure Derek." She said, her breath catching a little at his close proximity.

"Okay, here I go…" He said, nervously licking his lips. He hoped she liked it; it had come from his heart, especially for her.

He strummed out the opening notes on his guitar, even though it sounded weak without an amp.

"Being one of those grains of sand, I get blown all around the world, and what I make of it. Oh I don't know, what's the meaning of it. Oh I don't know" As he started to sing, Casey's heart stirred.

"I've been around so many times, that the worlds turning in my mind. What do I think of it? Oh it's so-so." He looked up, and his eyes met hers.

"What more can you be, than the things they say you've been?" He hoped she liked it…

"Say you love me all around the world! Stay and hug me all around the world! Be yours a boy or be mine a girl. Just say you love me. Just say you love me." Casey was a little worried….had Derek just said he loved her?

"I never ever realized, it's so easy to make you cry. But did I break a bit? Oh I hope no. Have you forgot about it? Oh I hope so." She hadn't. She remembered every time Derek had driven her to tears, and she remembered the pained look on his face the last few times.

"But you never ever wonder why, in every single pair of eyes, there is a hunger in it, or its soul dies." Derek smiled as he strung out a few notes.

"What more can you be, than the things they say you've been?" Casey smiled back at him.

"Say you love me all around the world. Stay and hug me all around the world. Be yours a boy or be mine a girl." There again….he mentioned love….

"Say you love me all around the world. Stay and hug me all around the world. Be yours a boy or be mine a girl. Just say you love me." His eyes met hers again, and she blushed, but didn't look away.

"Come on now darling, say you love me. Oh yeah, please please say you love me. Come on say you love me." He was whispering now, and his eyes were closed. He was thinking how stupid he was, singing her that song. It came from his heart, and it sounded great in his mind…

He felt her slender fingers on his chin, and she pulled his face up slowly.

"Derek, I love you." She whispered softly. His eyes widened.

"I love you too Casey." He whispered. Casey smiled brightly, and then leaned forward and kissed him.

They broke apart after a few long seconds.

"I love the song Derek. Really, I do." She whispered, her forehead resting against his.

He grinned. "Good cause it would have taken forever for me to write another." She laughed with him.

A/N okay that was my first pathetic attempt at Dasey fluff. No, I won't make this a story. It's just a one-shot. And the song is called Say you love meby Simply Red. Hope you liked it.
