Chapter 10

Derek’s P.O.V.
I felt something repeatedly poking my nose and twitched, moving my head away. I heard a quiet giggle and realised it was Steph, turning so I was facing her again; I draped my arm over her waist. She started poking my nose again and I grabbed her, pulling her to me and began tickling her sides; opening my eyes as I did so. She laughed and tried to push me away by my chest to get away; making me wrap her up in my arms and roll so I was on top of her.
“That wasn’t a very nice wake up.” I remarked, looking down at her. She leant up as much as she could with me on top of her and kissed the end of my nose. “Don’t think you can get away so easily.” I chuckled, nuzzling my face in her neck; nipping her soft skin gently.
“You didn’t deserve a nice wake up for what you did to me yesterday.” She mumbled into my shoulder.
“What? Chasing you and then throwing you in the pool?” I smirked against her collar bone. She huffed and pushed my head back. “I’ll take that as a yes.” I chuckled.  “Forgive me?”
She shook her head stubbornly and I buried my face back in her neck, ghosting my lips across her throat before kissing her neck softly, finding her pulse point and gently biting down. She shuddered under me and I smirked, dusting kisses up along her jaw and to the corner of her mouth. She turned her head and I looked at her before slowly leaning down and capturing her mouth with my own.
“Okay, you’re forgiven.” She mumbled, pulling back slightly. I smiled and she looked at me. “Don’t get cocky though.” She warned.
“Never.” I chuckled.
***************************************************************************
I heard the radio playing in the kitchen and made my way over, stopping in the doorway as I saw Steph there; making something and singing softly along to the music.
“I’d never gone with the wind
Just let it flow
Let it take me where it wants to go to
You open the door
There’s so much more
I’ve never seen it before
I was trying to fly
But I couldn’t find wings
But you came along and you changed everything.
 
You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I’m falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier.
 
I’ve watched from a distance as you made life your own
Every sky was your own kind of blue
And I wanted to know how that would feel
And you made it so real
You showed me something that I couldn’t see
You opened my eyes
And you made me believe.
 
You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I’m falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier.
 
Baby you showed me what living is for
I don’t wanna hide anymore
Oh oh
 
You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I’m falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier.
Crazier, crazier, crazier.”
I smiled as she didn’t know I was watching her, leaning against the kitchen doorway. She turned around and her eyes widened as she saw me, jumping a little. My smile widened and I pushed myself off the doorframe, walking over to her and encircling my arms around her small waist.
“How long have you been there?” she asked, her cheeks a light pink.
“I haven’t heard you sing in a long time.” I said softly, making the blush in her cheeks darken. “I missed it.”
End Derek’s P.O.V.

“Did you now?” I asked, arching an eyebrow. He nodded. “I’ve never heard you sing.”
“I don’t sing.” He stated. My face fell a little.
“It would have been nice to hear your voice.” I mumbled, looking away from him and turning back to clean the mess I had made on the counter. I felt his arms wrap around me from behind.
“Don’t be upset.” He said softly, pressing his cheek to mine. “I’m not as good as you anyway.”
“I’d still like to hear. I have to go call for the flower arrangement.” I said quietly, breaking free of his hold on me and going to the living room.
***************************************************************************
“Derek?” I called, walking around the house trying to find him. I hadn’t seen him all day since he came in the kitchen and I was getting worried. I walked out the front door and stood on the porch, looking out into the dark woods surrounding us. “Where are you?” I murmured, squinting to try and see in the darkness.
Small fairy lights lit up part of the front yard and around the porch and I jumped in shock. I noticed Derek sitting on the swinging bench we had in the corner of the porch with an acoustic guitar in his hands. I turned to face him, wrapping the thin cream cardigan tighter around me, as he began playing it softly.
“It’s three in the morning
And I’m still not sleeping
Cause I am finally running your race
The mountains you’ve been climbing seem like they have steepened
Since I decided to pick up the pace.
If the whole world told me I should disappear
Could I fall right next to you?
 
Just let me burn the night away
Oh, baby let me burn the night away
By thinking of the simple things you say to me
That get me through the day
You keep me wide awake
You keep me wide awake.
 
So don’t look back the hour glass is running empty
You’ve got me buried with your every move
Your fine lines have met me at a loss of memory
I’m right beside you in an empty room.
If the whole world told me I should disappear
Could I fall right next to you?
 
Just let me burn the night away
Oh, baby let me burn the night away
By thinking of the simple things you say to me
That get me through the day
And it’s so hard to catch your feelings
When you always run away
You keep me wide awake
You keep me wide awake.
 
You’re making it hard for me to just start
Over like we’re new
Oh, the whole world told me I should disappear cause I’m falling in love with you.
 
Just let me burn the night away
Oh, baby let me burn the night away
By thinking of the simple things you say to me
That get me through the day
And it’s so hard to catch your feelings
When you always run away
You keep me wide awake
You keep me wide awake.”
I stood there with my mouth open slightly and my eyes wide as I watched him. His voice was soft and deep as he sang, it was like a lullaby. He looked up and his green eyes found mine, his face sculpted in shadows and light due from the small lights scattered around the porch and nearby trees. He started becoming blurry and I realised it was because I had tears in my eyes. Derek placed the guitar on the floor before looking at me again, releasing a large breath.
“It was beautiful.” I whispered. His lips quirked up at the corner slightly and he motioned me over with his hand. My feet moved on their own accord and carried me closer to the Alpha werewolf sitting on the bench in the dusk light.
His arms encircled my waist and he looked up at me, his eyes the clearest thing I could see in the dim light as they danced with the light reflecting from the fairy lights. He rested his chin on my stomach and I held onto one of his shoulders while my other hand went to his hair, my fingers running through it. He closed his eyes and smiled as I continued doing it.
“You have a nice voice.” I murmured, making his eyes open and him look up at me. “I really like it.” He smiled and gently brought me down so I was sitting sideways on his knees and brushed my hair off my face, leaving his hand on my cheek with his palm cupping it. He leant forward and pressed his forehead to mine.
“I love you.” He said softly, his nose bumping mine lightly. I cradled his face in my hands and pressed my lips onto his gently, giving him a light kiss.
“I love you too Derek.”
