Derek had sent the rose. He had gone against what his mind was really telling him and he’d sent the rose to Emilia. He knew that time had passed and that as his feelings for Athena developed, he couldn’t continue to let it be a thing. So, he’d sent her a rose, knowing she wouldn’t speak to him otherwise and had asked her to come. It was the exact time and date of when he’d asked her to meet him, and Derek was sitting in the courtyard feeling a little nervous. He didn’t often get nervous, but he certainly felt it now. He didn’t know what she would be like, how she would react to him, if she would even come. It was hard to know. He knew he hadn’t exactly done right by her, he’d acted in a manner that was not particularly kind towards her and he knew that his actions with Athena was hurting, so he had to try now, he had to try to do right by her. It was just exceedingly nerve wracking. He didn’t want it to go badly, but there was going to be so many chances for it to do so.
