Acting Like An Angel

Romance

Prologue

A/N:Hey here is the second story. It is the continuation of Becoming an Angel. I hope you guys like this.

It has been a few months since Derek passed away. Casey was still trying to deal with the loss of Derek. It was hard for her to not blame herself when it came to him dying and her living. She knew it would be some time until she could finally get over the grief of losing him. The nice part was that Sam and Casey have been hanging out even more than ever. He had become a close friend to her and she was glad he was there during the tough times. Casey still isn't use to not seeing Derek in his room or at school or even on a date with the chick of the week. She knew it would be awhile until she got used to it. The thing she missed the most was being annoyed by Derek, it was like she didn't know how to react to everyone getting a long and no one really was scheming like Derek did. Like God promised her Derek was her angel and they could talk and see each other it wasn't like how it had been before. Derek could only come and see her when she was sleeping. At least it was 6 to 8 hours a night that they would be able to talk with each other. Derek made sure to come every night to see her. They talked about everything and anything.

"Hey Derek."

"Hey Case, How did your day go today?"

"Oh it was fun. Sam and I went to the movies to see 'The Proposal.'"

"Man I wish I could have been there too."

Derek told Casey he was okay about how close she and Sam were getting. But he really wanted to be the guy she was going to the movies with. He had a hard time coming to the realization that things for him weren't going to be how he thought. He got to know Casey while they were injured and he wished it could have been in real life too. The one thing we wished he could have back was Casey remembering about the dream. The alternate universe that they went to after the accident. He could remember it all but she couldn't remember anything. She just knew that they lost Derek in the accident that she was in. She didn't get to know the life that they could have had together. If he could he would go back to being in the hospital bed and fighting for his life, he believed that if he waited longer he could have pulled through and defeated the coma. Then he could have made the dream world with Casey a reality. Maybe now he was just meant to know what could have been to make him get through the days of being here alone. There was no one else around him and some days it was nice if he was going through a rough time but other times it just got lonely. From being one of the popular kids in the class to being around no one was an adjustment in itself. On top of dealing with some things of his own he had to watch over Casey and make sure she was always okay. He was grateful to do that don't get him wrong but he wanted to go through the dealing with his death first before having to worry about someone else's life.

"I know me too. I miss getting to hang out with you."

"Case do you remember when we were in the dream state and we were married with kids?"

"Derek us married? That is funny. We have always been best friends. I can't think of you as anything else. Plus you protect me."

"Oh that's you better get to bed. You have to do a lot tomorrow so you can tell me all about it."

Derek left he didn't want to have to deal with the pain of knowing what it was like to be in love and have that person love you back. He wanted to talk with God, to know why he lost everything he had. He didn't get why his body decided to end the fight. He was still strong and willing to go at it to be alive. After hearing Casey tell him that she loved him and passed away. There was no reason to why her confessing her feelings made him let go. He tried not to blame her but it was hard. She got to live, he knew that wasn't fair to blame her but it was how he felt. He had to stay on the side lines and watch everyone get there happy ever afters. Derek did feel bad for leaving Casey the way he did but he didn't want to get mad at her and snap. He felt this was the only way to be able to vent was to go to a special place he created. It was a hockey rink that he was able to go and shot at the goal and take at everything he had pent up for the day. It was great therapy.

Casey was wondering why Derek was saying they had a dream about being married. That didn't make any sense because they have always been best friends. Casey drifted off to sleep and couldn't wait until tomorrow to hang out with Sam. She knew that they had dated before but things were different now. Sam was able to show a side he didn't when Derek was around. This was the same side that made her first have a crush on Sam but she didn't want to ruin their friendship now. Casey was glad to have someone to lean against. She did the same for him she would give him the strength when he needed it. No one at school understood how they could still feel the pain they did. They believed everything had gone back to normal which wasn't the truth at all. Emily was still around but she had been acting different since Derek passed away. It wasn't the same as it used to be. Slowly Casey was able to go into a deep sleep where she didn't think about what had been going on for that day. She was able to get the rest that she needed. It was the one thing that she enjoyed now was when she got the sleep she needed.
