So, I hated yesterday's episode. I just watched the PP episode so I'm hoping that it means that Mark and Lexie will get back together. I am going to write a fanfic based off of what really happened. I have the jist of it, but I want to see about a few things. If not I will just write it how it looks. I had to watch the Mentalist, so I didn't watch the last bit of the crossover.
I don't own anything; if I did Sloan wouldn't have come and screwed everything up.
Mark cornered Derek in the attending locker room as they both got ready to go home.
"I don't wanna talk to you." Derek said trying to brush past him.
"Well, I wanna talk to you. I've spent the last month alone. Without Lexie, without you, hell, Callie won't even talk to me. Derek, please 5 minutes. Just hear me out and then I'll just leave you all alone."
"Fine, 5 minutes."
"I love Lexie. I never stopped loving her. The minute I slept with Addison, I realized that I'm not the old Mark anymore. I love Lexie, I want her back. I've had women leave me before, but it never felt like this. This felt like a punch in the gut. I feel like I can't breathe. I hate myself for hurting her and I just want her back." He said looking up.
"You promise?" Derek asked looking at him.
"I've never felt the pain I did when she left. I'd kill myself before feeling like that again. I promise. I'll never hurt her again. I don't think I can live without her."
As Derek looked at his friends face, he knew that he was serious. He was starting to cry. Mark Sloan never cried.
"Okay, I don't think Meredith will be too happy with it, but you're my best friend and Lexie's been miserable. I hate to see the two of you in pain. You should talk to her today. Tell her what you told me."
Mark hugged Derek and then ran down the hall. He ran down the hall stopping at the nurse's station.
Cristina was there going over a chart. "Where's Lexie?" He asked.
"I don't know if Meredith…"
"Damn it, Yang! I'm asking. Please."
"She just left." She said looking back down at the chart. He quickly turned and ran towards the front doors.
Lexie Grey was walking outside. The cold Seattle wind stung her face. She didn't know when she had started to cry, all she knew was that the tears were there and wouldn't stop coming. She should had been at the parking lot by now, but she had leaned against the wall and just tried to breathe and let the cold air numb her aching heart. All day she had been avoiding Mark's gazes. She was pretty sure that she had a sore in her mouth from biting the inside of her cheek to keep from crying.
She felt a warm hand close around her cold one and she turned around.
It was Mark.
"I don't wanna talk to you." She said. She could feel her voice shaking and get high. He knew her too well. He'd know she was lying.
"Yes, you do." He said wiping away her tears with his free hand. He brought her to the bench about halfway down the sidewalk and sat down.
"Lexie, I am so sorry. I never wanted to hurt you like I did. But, when Sloan died, I just felt weak at the knees. I needed something to numb the pain and Addison was there and she comforting me and it just happened. I've cheated on women before, had them leave me before, hurt them. But, it never hurt me like it did with you. You were different. You changed me. And for the first time in my life, I am really and truly in love with someone."
"I… I... don't know what to say…"
"Well," He said, taking the necklace out of his pants pocket, he always kept it close, "You could say that you understand that I'm sorry and will try to give me another chance. Or you could say that you don't want to. Either way I know that I was one lucky bastard to get a year of being with the most amazing woman in the world."
Lexie took a deep breath, "I love you. I didn't know why, but even after you cheated I still loved you. I am still in love with you. I've never felt love like this before. I want to be with you. You might have hurt me, but I do admit I was acting kind of bitchy about Sloan. I can understand why you didn't want me to comfort you. Sloan never liked me and I have to admit I wasn't too fond of her either. But this, you cheating on me, isn't the way that we should remember Sloan. She deserved better than her father blaming his infidelity on her death. I want to give you another chance. Not just for you, or for me, but for Sloan. Even though she didn't show it, she loved you as much as I did. She would want you to be happy and I want to be happy. I love you Mark Sloan. You might be a manwhore, but you're my manwhore." She said, smiling and kissing him.
He carefully put the necklace back on her. "So I'm assuming that you're going to give me another chance."
He watched as she nodded, giggling and grinning from ear to ear.
"God! I am one lucky bastard!" He said kissing her again.
"One condition." She said pulling away.
"If you ever cheat on me again, I have your permission to kill you and hide your body."
He started to laugh and then noticed her serious face.
"Lex? You ARE kidding right?"
She just smirked and whispered, "You'll never know," into his ear before running off.
"Lexie!!!" He yelled running after her.
When he caught up he wrapped his arms around her waist and they both started laughing.
She turned and kissed him.
When they finished kissing he smiled and wrapped his arm around her waist. He hadn't known if she would have given him another chance but as they walked home together, he remembered the song that had been on the TV while he had been crying. It was true. It sucked to be alone. You had to try no matter what the consequences are. Taking chances was the only way to get what you want. He had taken a chance and he had gotten Lexie back. He loved her and as he looked at her smiling her face he knew that all of the pain he had felt in the last month was worth the possibility of being together for a long time. It had made them stronger. He loved her, she loved him, and no matter what happened that would never change.
