Dex said it first, and Nursey panicked.
He never thought Dex would be the one to confess his feelings first.
Which might be why, when Dex says “I love you Derek”, Nursey responds:
Dex’s jaw dropped, and he blinked at Nursey. Once. Twice. Thrice. Before he closed his mouth, and shook his head at Nursey.
“What?” Dex finally managed. They’re quiet for a moment before Nursey realizes Dex is expecting an answer.
“Um…I meant to say I love you too.” Nursey explained sheepishly.
“100% babe. I really love you.”. Nursey said and Dex smiled.
“But instead of telling me that, you said ”#relatable"?“ Dex said with a laugh.
"Uhm…”. Nursey tried, but it was useless. He couldn’t explain why he’d said that.
Dex smiled, and Nursey realized he was going to be chirped for this forever.
And he didn’t even mind.
