It has been Way, way, way, way, way, WAY too long, I know! I am so sorry, but to be honest, I lost the desire to write this story... I have been writing a new LWD fic and was thinking of posting it on here but I knew that I couldn't do that unless I finished this story first because people would get really upset with me. SO I stayed up till 2 AM, trying to figure out how to finish the story off and finally did it. I admit, it's not the best ending and it's a bit cheesy in my standards... also it's short... but at least I thought of something and I hope that the majority of you will appreciate it anyway.
I love you guys, all of you who have been following this story, reading, reviewing, etc... Thank you so much!
Here is the end to Life WIth Casey (Alternate Reality). Enjoy...
Alter-Derek let out a sigh of relief once the sudden pain in his head stopped pounding and he was able to focus on his surroundings. A curse escaped his mouth when he realized where he was.
"No! How did this happen?" He cried as he stood up and stared at the familiar room with wide eyes.
"Derek, what's going on?" Casey's voice shouted from outside his bedroom door. "I heard yelling. Is everything okay?"
Alter-Derek was speechless as he stared at the closed door in shock. Was his evil stepsister actually standing outside his door, concerned for him?
"Derek, answer me!" She yelled as she tried to open the door. It was locked.
"I..." Derek didn't know how to reply. Maybe the other Casey had travelled back with him...? But she hates him now. She wouldn't be concerned for him.
"Look, I know I freaked you out earlier but I really think this could work out..."
What is she talking about? Alter-Derek wondered with a frown. Has Casey changed her mind about being with me instead of the other Derek?
A grin formed on Alter-Derek's lips as made his way to the door, unlocked it, and opened it up to come face-to-face with Casey, his Casey. The grin was immediately replaced with a scowl and he let out another curse under his breath.
"What were you yelling about in there? It sounded like you were in pain." His stepsister said as she glanced inside the bedroom behind him.
"Why me?" Alter-Derek suddenly yelled as he pulled at his hair in anguish. "How did I end up back here?"
"What is wrong with you? You're freaking out like the other Derek used to." Casey glowered as she folded her arms across her chest.
"That's because I am him!" Alter-Derek shouted. "Somehow I'm back in this miserable place."
"If you were the other Derek, you wouldn't be talking so boldly to me right now." Casey spoke with pursed lips as she leaned against the doorframe. "I bet this is some kind of scheme to make me think you're him just so I won't throw myself at you again."
"No... I... What?" Alter-Derek's eyes widened in horror. "Throw yourself at me?"
Casey rolled her eyes, "Quit playing the stupid act, Derek. I'm not falling for it, and I can't change the way I feel about you either. I like the way you're so forceful with me." She grinned.
"You l-l-like me?"
"Hence me trying to kiss you earlier." She sighed with annoyance. "You better just admit defeat, Venturi, and realize that you're never getting back home to your little Miss. Goody-two shoes, and that you'll just have to settle for me. I can try to be nicer to you at least..."
She really thinks that I'm the other Derek...? Alter-Derek thought in his head. And she likes me... er... him... and she'll treat me better if I like her back...? A sinister grin suddenly formed on his face as Alter-Derek grabbed his stepsister by the arm and pulled her to him, crashing his lips against hers.
"Maybe this world isn't so bad after all..." He said as he pulled their lips apart for air.
"I knew you'd come around." She smirked and pulled him back for more.
Derek lay on a familiar hardwood floor trying to regain his senses. He remembered his head feeling like it was about to explode and then suddenly there was a blinding flash of light. He had no idea what happened but the headache was gone.
"Derek?" A voice he knew all too well spoke up from behind him.
Derek spun around on his knees and looked up to see Casey standing in his doorway with a horrified expression on her face.
"H-how did I get here?" Derek asked as he looked around the room, noticing that the walls were no longer purple and it was back to the way he remembered it.
"Derek, is it really you?" Casey questioned with uncertainty.
He stared up at her as a smile spread across his face. He'd missed those compassionate blue eyes more than he'd like to admit.
"Of course it's me, Spacey. Who else would it be?"
She still seemed wary as she stared into his eyes, unsure of what to do.
"What's reciprocal mean, Derek?" Casey asked with a raised brow.
"Recipo-what?" Derek replied in confusion.
"It is you!" Casey cried in excitement as she rushed over to him and pulled him into a warm embrace.
Derek eagerly returned the hug, taking in her vanilla scent as he let out a sigh of relief. He could feel her begin to sob into his shoulder and he quickly pulled away.
"Whoa! What's with the tears?"
Casey blushed as she wiped her eyes with her bare arm and focussed her gaze on the floor, "I'm sorry... I just... I thought you were gone forever."
Derek's eyes widened in surprise, "How... how did you know I was gone?"
"This may sound absurd but... The Alternate version of you told me."
Derek grabbed Casey by the shoulders and looked into her tear stained eyes, "You mean... he was here? Alter-Derek was here?"
Casey nodded weakly, "Yes and he was even more of a jerk than you."
"What did he do?"
"He was trying to take over your life, Derek. He was going to quit the hockey team and he told me that you would never return to this reality."
"Does anyone else know about this?"
"No," Casey shook her head. "Who would believe it?"
Derek let out a deep breath. He wasn't sure how exactly he'd gotten home but he was thankful. One more day in the alternate reality with the other Casey would have driven him insane.
"So... were you in the alternate reality?" Casey asked. "Was the other me there too?"
Derek nodded with a frown, "Yes, and Case, I'm so sorry for every mean thing and prank I've ever done to you in the past." His eyes bore into hers with a passion that Casey had never seen before. "I now know how horrible it feels to be on the other end of those pranks and the humiliation I've caused you over the years."
Casey stared back at him with wide, terrified eyes, "Derek... is this really you, or did you switch places with some other alternate version of you again...?"
Derek let out a laugh as he grabbed her by the shoulders and gazed into her beautiful blue eyes, "It's me, Princess, your Derek."
"My Derek?" A small smirk appeared on her face.
"If you'll let me be?" He mirrored the smirk as he placed his hand in hers. "I realized that I never want to be without you in my life again. Even though your keener ways annoy the heck out of me, I'd rather have you just be you, and not more like me... so to speak."
Casey's cheeks turned red as she avoided looking into his eyes, "I realized the same about you, Derek. I'd always wished for a life without you constantly ruining mine, but in actuality, I love my life with you. You have no idea how much I missed having you just being you."
"So..." Derek trailed off as he lifted her chin to look into her eyes. "Does that mean you missed me in a brotherly way or..."
Before Derek could finish that sentence, Casey's lips were on his.
Finally! Derek whooped in his head as he pulled her closer and deepened the kiss. I have my Casey at last.
Thanks again for being so awesome! I am truly and deeply sorry about taking so long to finish this story. I hope that you're not too angry with me and will tune into my new story once I decide to post it online... It's a bit different from any other Dasey story you've probably read... but I like it so far and I'm excited to share it with you all.
