The next day, as the session was finishing, Mick announced that he was going to spend the evening with John Lennon at his place and asked if I would like to come along. Some months prior to this, John had been interviewed by one of the English tabloids about the Let It Be album, and for some unknown reason to me, had chosen to slag me off in an extremely unpleasant way. So I declined the invitation, telling Mick the reason why. He told me I was being ridiculous, and after much discussion, persuaded me to come along, making me promise to be on my best behavior and not challenge John about what he had said in the press.
We arrived at John’s apartment and to my surprise, I was greeted with much affection. He was living with May Pang. Yoko had arranged for her to be with him while she was away. We spent a pleasant evening watching TV and chatting.
When it came time to leave, I felt it would be hypocritical of me to go without mentioning the article in the press and John’s extraordinary venom aimed at me over the Let It Be sessions. So, as we got to the front door to leave, I turned and, in as pleasant a way possible, asked him if he could explain himself, since he had appeared to be so pleased to see me and yet had been extraordinarily unpleasant in the interview.
He turned to me and told me that he had been equally vicious about Paul during the same period and that Paul had got it right when he had declared that the only person John was hurting with his vitriolic behavior was himself. It was not exactly an apology, more like an explanation.

Hello ARMYs, I am Jungkook from BTS. Its been a while since I have held a pen and wrote a letter. BTS has already hit our 1st year anniversary. I’ve always hoped that time would pass by as fast as it could after debut, but, mow as the time passed and we are already celebrating our 1st year anniversary, it’s not a pleasant feeling to be honest. A year ago, before standing up on stage for our showcase debut, it’s like the feeling you get before the sound of the pistol shooting on a 50m race. (I was really nervous)
From that moment onwards, we have made a lot of memories together with the army’s. I have changed a lot over the past year, and I think I have become more mature. The time together with you guys has only been exciting and happy. But I cant help but worry that I can’t reach the the expectations that you’ve held. I was worried over a lot of things and I talked about this to the other members. They said I’ve grown up. hoho
The recent event we had on 29th March, our first fan meeting concert. After finishing the last song, ‘I Like It’, the army’s were all showing us a thumbs up. Seeing this makes me think 'I will be the best’. We have always promised you guys that 'we will do our best at showing you an improved imagine of us’. To keep that promise I will keep on challenging myself and be more thoughtful of things. Though we have promised this so many times, I will definitely show you a better side of me.
I sat down for a long time and read all the fan letters that you sent me, and a lot of you wrote 'I’ve had a lot of fun because of you’. Seeing this makes me feel grateful. Your letters really gives us strength. I also had a lot of fun because of you. Did you gather up a lot of memories over the year? I hope you will gather more memorable and happy memories in the future. I hope you are always happy. Thank you for being with us.
Life was complicated, and nobody knew that more than you. You had no idea how you could get yourself into the situation like you were in now – dating one werewolf but in love and pregnant by another.
Dating Scott McCall was good. It was nice, but he didn’t make you feel like you did with Derek Hale. With Derek, there was love and passion. Derek left you breathless, and you missed him the second he was away. With Scott, you appreciated him. You even loved him in a different way. It just wasn’t the way that you loved Derek, the way you needed Derek.
But… Derek walked away. You’d told him you were pregnant, and he couldn’t handle it. He didn’t feel like he could be a good parent. He didn’t want to do anything to bring harm to your child, whether that be by his own hands or those of his enemies, so he took himself out of the equation.
Scott had always had a crush on you, and he had really stepped up in your time of need. He knew full well your situation, and you were pretty sure that he knew how you still felt about Derek. But, Scott never held any of it against you. In fact, Scott had stepped up in numerous ways.
Once you’d started dating Scott, which you weren’t even sure how that happened in retrospect, he had taken on all the responsibility of being your baby’s father. In public, when people asked about the baby, Scott proudly told them your due date or all the things he planned to do with the baby when he or she was big enough.
You felt safe with Scott, and you knew that he would always love the baby and take care of him or her. But, when you thought of your future and imagined Scott beside you, it never felt quite right. You knew it would be a good, content life. None of that was what you wanted though…
Which is why you found yourself standing outside of Derek’s loft at this very moment. You finally stop pacing and just look at the steel door before biting your lip and lifting your hand to knock on the door.
Derek pulls the door open quickly, and you can tell that he’s surprised to see you by the way his eyes widen for just a quick second before he recovers and puts that strong, stoic look back on his face. Neither of you say anything for a moment, and you take the time to just look into his cold, crystalline, blue eyes. You missed looking into those eyes.
“Y/N, what are you doing here?” Derek finally breaks the silence and asks.
“I want to know why, Derek.” You tell him.
“Y/N…” Derek starts after a sigh, but you interrupt him.
“No, don’t say my name like that, like I’m being frustrating or annoying, Derek. Don’t sigh like I’m being some petulant child.” You shake your head at your ex-boyfriend. “I deserve to know why you turned your back on me, and why you’re turning your back on your child!” You shout at him.
Derek swings the door of the loft shut before turning and walking over to the wall of windows. He stays silent as he looks at the night sky outside.
“Derek!” You exclaim loudly when he makes no move to answer you.
“Scott is better for you, and you know he’s going to be better for the baby. I’m not father material.” Derek admits quietly.
You shake your head incredulously. “Well, you are the father, Derek. Don’t you even care about this baby?” You ask him, cradling your swollen stomach. The amount of love you felt for the child growing inside of you was just about crazy so you couldn’t imagine how Derek could feel any other way, how he could just walk away from you both. It was his baby too, after all.
“Why do you think I’m doing this?” Derek turns around suddenly, and you see the anger in his eyes. “You and that baby are the only things I do care about anymore. You’re the only family I have left, but I know that I won’t be a good father.” Derek’s narrowed eyes search yours for any sense of understanding.
“Derek, how can you think that?” You ask him, feeling your heart break all over again, this time for Derek, not because of him. Looking at Derek now, all you saw was the broken boy who had lost so much. He was scared, and you could so obviously see that in him. He knew it, too.
Derek takes a deep breath while shaking his head. He wills the tears forming in his eyes not to fall. “I’m not like Scott, okay? I’m not compassionate or kind like he is. Scott sees the good in everybody, and he tries to save them all.” Derek tells you.
You nod your head. “You’re right. Scott is all of those things.” You pause. “What does that have to do with your ability to be a father?”
“I’m his opposite, Y/N. I’m cold and detached. If someone is a problem, my first thought is to kill them, not save them.” He informs you.
“You don’t think that you would ever think that way about our child, do you, Derek?” You ask him, wondering where his head is at. Derek may not be like Scott, but you’d never seen him as a cold-blooded killer either. He’d done some things he wasn’t proud of, and that you wouldn’t necessarily agree with, but you knew that he’s always done them for the right reasons.
“Of course not.” Derek shakes his head. “But, what if I would raise that child to be like me? Just as cold and angry… Stubborn and… What if the baby was to inherit all of my bad qualities?” Derek asks you.
You shrug your shoulders. “Well, I love you, and I don’t think you’re so bad.” You smile at Derek while taking two small steps towards him. “Maybe you’re a little rough around the edges, Derek, but you have to believe in yourself and give yourself some more credit.”
“See, you’re like Scott. You see the good in people.” Derek points at you. “It’s why you two are perfect for each other.”
“You’re perfect for me.” You quickly reply. “Derek, think back before I told you about the baby, had you ever treated me with coldness or anger? No!” You exclaim instead of giving Derek a chance to reply.
“What about how I’ve treated you lately?” Derek asks. “You’d be proud to raise your baby with a guy like me?”
You finish walking up to Derek and rest your hand on the side of his face, caressing his cheek. “As long as it’s the guy I fell in love with, Derek. It’s okay to be scared of what the future holds and anxious about who our child will turn out to be, but if you take on this challenge with me, I promise that I will make sure the baby loves you just as much as I do.” You pause while looking deeply into Derek’s eyes. “You are not your bad feelings, Derek. You just have to let go and let yourself be happy, just like you did with me for all that time we were together.”
“What about Scott?” Derek asks while placing his hands on your stomach, feeling the effect of the baby on your body for the first time.
You bite your bottom lip before letting a small smile pull at your lips. “I already broke up with him.” You confess to Derek. “He just wasn’t you, Derek, and you’re the only one I want to be with and raise this baby with.”
“I love you.” Derek whispers to you before leaning down and connecting his lips to yours in a sweet kiss. “And, I’m sorry.” Derek tells you when he pulls away and just rests his forehead on yours.
“I love you, too.” You tell Derek, just taking the moment to relish the feeling of being back in his arms.
