Derek smiled as you slept soundly, completely tangled in the bed sheets. He pressed a soft kiss to your forehead before slipping out of bed carefully, not wanting to wake you. His mission for his day off? Breakfast in bed for you.
He got dressed and slipped into the kitchen. Immediately, he got to cracking the eggs. He knew just how you liked them. He loved you. You’d been together for several years now. And last night, he slipped the ring on your finger. The excitement was still rushing through his veins like adrenaline. He started to cook your eggs as his mind trailed, remembering the first time you’d met.
Derek had been dragged to the bookstore with Reid, though he didn’t mind so much. Quiet place meant less of a headache. He’d wandered off and found you in the art section, flipping through a book before you made a face and slid it back into place. Derek completely admitted to being nervous as he saw you.
When Reid came around the corner and saw you, he was surprised. “Y/N!” Reid shouted, making you jump and drop the book.
“Gah! Dammit, Spencer!” You laughed, picking up the book. He hurried to your side and gave you a big hug, surprising Derek even more. Reid wasn’t one for shaking hands and he just walked up to you and hugged you. “Yeah! Okay! Yes, I live!”
“Might not be for long,” Derek quipped, smiling as the genius released you.
“Y/N, this is Derek Morgan. Morgan, this is Y/F/N Y/L/N.”
“Nice to meet ya,” You said with a grin that could have lit up a darkened room.
Time passed and you both saw more of one another. At least, as much as you could with his line of work. Derek finally gained the courage to ask you on a date three months after he first met you. After that, you’d been together for three years before you both moved in together. It wasn’t until last night, four years after being together, that he’d popped the question.
He got started on the bacon and pancakes, knowing just how you liked everything. He loved everything about you, from your obsession with all things in the scientific realm to the love for cat videos on YouTube. He loved the way your hair seemed to create a halo around you. He loved the way you curled into him in your sleep.
Simply put, he loved you. Nothing would change that.
Derek finished the breakfast and smiled, going to the fridge and grabbing some orange juice for you. He placed everything on the tray and moved to the room, ready to surprise you.
