“What time is it?” you groaned reaching over to your phone that was ringing non-stop. This was probably the fifth time, it rang, you just assumed it was some telemarketer, telling you that you’ve won a free trip on a cruise. Nate’s named appeared on the screen, you squinted your eyes to double check you were seeing things right. After your and Derek’s breakup you never really talked to the guys, you kind of just shut them all out. You swiped your finger across the screen only to hear loud music coming on the other end.
“Hello” you said tiredly.
“Hey, Y/N?” he asked.
“Yup, I’m here." you answered.
"Listen, I know it’s really late and everything, and by the sounds of it you were sleeping, but I really need you to come down here, it’s Derek”
“What about him? Is he ok?” you asked, your voice turning into a worried tone.
“Yeah, well sort of, he is not hurt or anything, but we are at some party, and he had a lot of drinks, I tried telling him to call a cab but he won’t listen, he says he wants you to come get him.”
“Nate… I don’t know, I mean I don’t think that’s a good idea, we broke up months ago.” you explained.
“I know, but he won’t stop talking about you, and every time I try to tell him to go home he just won’t listen, I think he really misses you. Can you please just come and pick him up? All you have to do is just pick him up then drop him off at my place or something, that’s it.”
“Ok, fine I will come and get him, but you owe me.” you said with a sigh.
“Perfect, thanks, I will text you the address, thanks again Y/N.”
“Yeah no problem, I will see you in a bit.”
“See you soon” he said before hanging up.
You stood up grabbing you purse and keys heading to your car, this was not your plan, to have to wake up at like 2:30 to pick your drunk ex-boyfriend up from a party. After receiving the address from Nate you made your way to the house, on the way there, you were thinking about what you were going to say to him, I mean you haven’t seen or talked to him for 2 months. You pulled up into the driveway, hearing the music come from the house. You saw Nate holding a tipsy looking Derek over to your car. He opened the door and helped him inside.
“Thank you so much Y/N I really appreciate it.”
“Don’t worry about it, do you need a ride?” you asked hoping he would say yes so it wouldn’t be so awkward.
“Nah I’m alright, the rest of the guys are inside, I think we are going to stay a little longer, we will probably call a cab.”
“Ok well I will see you later.”
“Bye Y/N” he waved as you rolled up the window.
You backed out of the driveway and made your way down the road, no one said anything, the car was just filled with an awkward silence, until Derek broke it.“You look really good.” he said out of the blue, causing you to scoff.
“What makes you say that now?”
“What do you mean? I was giving you a compliment. I think you look beautiful, you don’t look stressed out or anything, like you have no worries." Causing you to look over at him and raise an eyebrow. "Y/N I know our relationship was difficult, I was a handful and I never really appreciated you, the way I should’ve.” he said slurring on some words. “I really miss you, I wish I fought harder to keep our relationship going, I really love you Y/N.” he continued.
“Derek, stop. I really don’t want to hear about this right now, it’s been 2 months, since we broke up, I don’t want to hear about what we had.” you said, your voice in a harsh tone.
“Ok” he answered softly, from the corner of your eye you could see him slump down, something he did when he was upset. You continue to drive, deciding that you would just let him sleep over, since traffic was already bad enough, no matter what time of day it was LA traffic was always slow. You pulled up into your drive, expecting Derek to be half a sleep, but instead he was wide awake.
“I thought you were going to drop me off at Nate’s house.”
“Yeah but I didn’t feel like driving any longer, you can just stay here for the night.” you said getting out of the car, him following.
“Thanks” he replied, you walked over to him to help him go up the few stairs, after unlocking the front door, then leading him up to your bedroom. He sat down on your bed taking off his shoes and jacket, before climbing in bed.
“I’ll sleep on the couch if you need me, goodnight Derek” as you turned around, his hand caught your arm pulling you back.
“No, stay, sleep with me.” he said yawning.
“Ok, fine, but stay on your side of the bed.” you climbed in beside him, making sure to keep your distance.
“Do I have a chance?” he suddenly asked.
“What?” you questioned.
“Do I have a chance.” he repeated. “With you, will you ever give me a second chance? To make it right?” he asked.
“Derek, let’s not go the-”
“No, we never discussed this, why we broke up, I loved you, and I know I never really showed you that, you were so good to me, yet I never treated you right, and I should’ve known that you would get sick of that, but I really do love you, you keep me in check, know one has ever cared for me like that. And I would be so stupid to let you go for good, so please do I have a second chance?”
“I thought you were supposed to be drunk, and yet here you are acting like some poet.” you said, causing him to laugh, god how much you missed his laugh.
“I am only drunk on you.” a wide grin spread across his lips.
“Your so cheesy.” you laughed. “If I give you another chance you have to promise that you won’t blow it.” you said getting serious.
“I promise.” he responded.
“Ok, I will give you another chance.”
“Thank you, I promise I won’t let you down.” he answered “Now go to sleep.” he said, cuddling into you.
