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.

Emilia had been surprised by all of the roses she had received. Many of them had been from her friends, but two stood out to her. One was an anonymous pink one, which had given Emilia a little more confidence. The other one was from Derek, which was making her nervous. For some reason, he had decided that the best way to reach out to her was in the way he used to show his love for her, by sending her a rose. Emilia was wary, and she wondered if this was some sort of symbolic gesture. She had absolutely no idea what the two of them suddenly had to talk about, but she decided to head tot the place he had indicated anyway. If she wouldn't go, she would just be curious forever. To her chagrin, Derk was already there. Emilia had hoped to be a bit earlier, but he was waiting for her. She crossed her arms in front of herself protectively as she approached him. "What is it you want to talk about?" She asked him bluntly and without preamble.

Derek had half expected her to not come, he wouldn’t have been annoyed if she didn’t, but there she was, and she seemed defensive and he knew that he would need to do this right. He had imagined that reaching out to her via a note or trying to speak to her with others around would only result if being thrown back. ”I wanted to talk about us, and what happened,” he told her honestly, he wasn’t sure whether to launch straight into what had happened or why or the things leading up to it, or any of it, but he was just keen to talk about it with her. To maybe help him feel a little better about things and clear the air a little with her. The teen wasn’t sure it would really help but he was more than willing to try it. ”First, I wanted to apologise for how it happened, I shouldn’t have done it like I did. I shouldn’t have done it in front of anyone. That was wrong of me,” he said, he knew this was a huge fault of his, something he shouldn’t have done in the slightest, but it was only after the fact that he’d really decided that.

Emilia stayed back a little, keeping distance between her and Derek. She didn't want to let him too close, both literally and figuratively. She sighed. "Why now?" She asked quietly, it had been so long now, and he'd never reached out to her. But she listened as he apologized, then nodded. "You shouldn't have. It was." She agreed. But then after a pause, she sighed. "Thank you." She added reluctantly. "Was that what you wanted to say?" Maybe he'd been feeling guilty, and this was needed to relieve that feeling. Emilia did think he had been wrong, and it was nice to hear him admit it, even so many months later.

Derek sighed a little, ”I was angry first, that wouldn’t have been helpful and then I was just upset about us,” he said, thinking that until now any conversation they might’ve had would’ve probably been pretty unproductive. He nodded as she agreed with him, and at least accepted the thanks. He didn’t expect to be forgiven, not at all, but it being accepted was the start of something. ”Not really,” he told her, ”Things between us before we broke up were weird Emilia, you changed and I changed, we were growing apart. The thing with Diana, was really that she was a friend you know,” he told her, ”You didn’t trust me and I wasn’t bothering with you,” he said. He was perhaps making some grand assumptions about them at that moment, but that was what he believed had gone wrong. That was what he thought. ”I know I should’ve tried harder with you, I know I should’ve been more receptive to how you were changing, but I wasn’t and that just made things worse between us.”

Emilia frowned. "You were angry for that long?" She asked him skeptically. "I didn't accuse you of anything. I was just..." She shook her head. "Derek, you didn't give me any time to talk. in that moment with Diana" She told him firmly. "Yes, we were growing apart. Things were weird. But neither you or I acknowledged it." She said, crossing her arms and looking away. "And the thing with Diana wasn't that I didn't trust you," not entirely, anyway. "It... just hurt to see you more affectionate with a friend than you had been with me in weeks." She said, her voice growing quieter. "And Diana Holland is not a good person." She added, unable to resist adding that. She knew the girl was his friend, but thought it was a rather bad choice. She sighed, not really feeling better because he was now taking all the blame. "I just wish you would have talked to me back then." She added quietly. "But... I can admit I also should have talked to you." She said. "I was trying very hard to be... better, partly for you. But I suppose it got away from me a little."

Derek shook his head, ”well, no, but I was sad after, you know,” the teen told her. It didn’t really matter now, the time had past everything had moved on and they were not in the same position as they once were. He nodded, he knew that he hadn’t given her much time to talk, he knew that the actions he had taken with Diana were not particularly kind, but there had been just a moment in all of it where he’d been too frustrated to think straight. He knew he had done wrong, ”I am sorry about how I treated you then, in that moment,” he knew it was too little too late, that he had already now said sorry but it felt like it was the right thing to say. He shrugged a little and then had to shake his head, ”Diana is not a bad person, this isn’t about her,” he said, it wouldn’t have mattered who it was. He shook his head a little. ”Emilia you know I never needed you to be anything other than you,” he sighed and shook his head, ”But, it’s all said and done, I can admit too that I should’ve reached out more, but I didn’t. We were young and clueless,” he said, making a few assumptions about it. ”I know you’ve been having issues with Athena,”
