your fever lasts over 48 hours, you’re covered in cold sweat and still.. you’re afraid of doctors. derek makes you go, but won’t leave your side for even a minute.
Trigger warning: Hospitals and needles
A/N: This is the first prompt I’ve written for someone. Please be kind.
You toss off the covers as you lay in bed in a puddle of
your own sweat. As soon as you throw off the covers, you are immediately cold
again. Your boyfriend of a year stirs beside you on the other side of the bed.
“(Y/N), are you alright?” Derek Morgan asks you groggily.
“I’m blazing hot and freezing cold. I just can’t get
comfortable,” you say with tears beginning to leak from your eyes.
“That’s it,” he says throwing the covers off himself and
sitting up, “We’re going to the hospital. You’ve been running a fever for 48
“Derek, please, don’t make me go,” you sob, “You know I’m
terrified of doctors, needles, and basically everything that hospitals involve.”
Derek pulls you into his lap and begins stroking your (H/L) (H/C)
hair saying, “I know, baby, I know. You’re sick though and have been for two
“Derek,” you plead knowing you are losing the battle.
“No, (Y/N). We’re going I’ll be right there beside you the
entire time. I won’t leave you alone,” he says trying to comfort you.
Derek crosses the room and rummages through the closet
looking for a pair of jeans and a shirt. Even with your fever making you delirious,
you can’t help but enjoy the view that is your boyfriend, Derek Morgan, in
nothing but his boxers. As he pulls on his clothes, you try to stand up from
the bed. Immediately, you become dizzy and nearly fall to the floor. Derek
catches you seconds before your head can collide with the bedside table.
“Are you alright, (Y/N)?” he says sitting you back down on
“J-j-just dizzy,” you stutter.
He grabs his keys and says, “We’re leaving.
That being said, Derek scoops you up in his arms where you
nestle your head into his neck. He carefully carries you out the front door of
the apartment down to his car.
You had fallen back asleep in the car and woke up on a bed
surrounded by curtains in the emergency room.
“Derek!” you cry out as the fear begins to wash over you.
“Baby, I’m right here,” he says taking your hand and
stroking your cheek, “You slept through the worst of it. They’ve drawn blood
and sent it back to the lab.”
Tears still begin to spill from your eyes as your fear takes
The doctor reenters the room as says, “Glad to see you’re
awake. Your body has been trying to fight off an infection. That’s why you’ve
been running a fever for so long. We just need to run an IV with antibiotics
for a while, and you’ll be just fine.”
The doctor turns to leave as a nurse enters with the IV to
Derek immediately moves closer to your side gently touching
your chin to draw you attention away from the needles. You look at him with
tears in your eyes.
“I’m right here, baby. Just focus on me,” he says placing a
kiss on your forehead.

It’s not super dancey like the original BUT this slowed down version is super sexy, chill and blue. It’s something I can feel, dance and sing along to on a Monday night by myself at home. It’s definitely more me than the original. The original is of course wonderful but I can’t relate to it at all…so, I LOVE this cover more. Yeah, I said it.
I was in awe when I saw/heard Olivia sing this live in LA, back in 2010…beautiful.
I spent more than 3 hours tonight looking for my drivers license and credit card…it’s missing for realz. I’m done searching. I’m giving it another 24hrs to just show up and come back to me when I’m not looking. I’d like a miracle, please. Merci!
Anyways…I love this song and video. It’s sooooo smooth and untroublesome = exactly how I want to feel. Yes, music please take me there ♥
