close your eyes and dream
dexter laughed with the rest of the teachers that lingered in the lounge, filling their mugs to the rim with coffee from the pot sitting on the counter. they were going to need it to start the day. especially with all the drama going on in the school with the upcoming auctions and all. the old drama teacher was supposed to be helping orchastrate it, but he suddenly up and quit last week. which left the door wide open for a new employee. everyone was eager to meet the replacement. including dex, who knew that he'd instantly befriend them, unless they were pissy. then he wouldn't be able to do it. but it was drama. how hard would it be to be happy in there? at least act like it.
actually, marley was a drama teacher. and dexter smiled at the thought, saying good bye to the rest of his fellow teachers as they left the break room and headed off to start their days in their classrooms. dexter didn't have a class first period, so was going to spend it in the lounge, grading papers. he had began to slack a little bit, getting matt situated in dex's apartment. dex had to admit that it was nice not being alone all the time. especially with the kid, who cared for like a son. they laughed. they joked. sure, dex got on his ass about studying for classes. but what would any other coach do? or a father, at least. it's the least he could do to see matt smile and feel better about himself then his uncle ever did.
he heard the door to the lounge open as he moved his briefcase to the confrence table and set his cup down next to it. dexter turned his head and caught sight of the blonde before turning back to the chair he was pulling out. "hello." he said cheerily as he sat down. he didn't fully acknowledge who it was until he was sitting. then he turned and looked at the female by the door and broke into a huge. grin. "mar! what...? what in God's name are you doing here?" he laughed loudly and almost ran across the room to wrap her into a big hug.

♣ FIND A WAY
Marley shook her head as she rushed around the motel room she was staying at. It was temporary until she got approved and cleared to move into the apartment complex she’s had her eye on since she decided to make the big move from down south to the north. She was feeling better. Staying busy was helping and just being away from where it all went down made it greater. She had talked to her parents about the move and they had given her their full support, after offering her to move in with them. She had to turn that down though. As much as she loved them, she couldn’t move in with her parents again. Especially after being on her own for so long, habits had been formed and she didn’t think she could go back to living under their roof. She could tell that they had been somewhat disappointed, but what was she supposed to do about that?
She pulled on the shirt she had picked out the night before, staring at herself in the mirror before frowning and taking it off, throwing on another one before rolling her eyes and shaking her head. She was being ridiculous. It wasn’t as if she was going to a new school as a student. She was a teacher for Heaven’s sake. She shouldn’t be this nervous. That didn’t stop her though and she took a drink of the decaffeinated coffee she got from the café down the street and pulled on another shirt, nodding her head at this one. Okay better, now maybe the butterflies would go away. If she was being completely honest with herself, she was doing it because she knew she was going to run into Dex at some point in the day and she wanted to make sure that she looked healthy.
Taking a deep breath, Marley squared her shoulders before grabbing her bag and heading out the door, making sure it was completely locked then headed out of the building to her car. She pulled up the directions to the school on her GPS and after twenty minutes and about three wrong turns she was finally parking her car in the teacher’s parking spot and shutting off the engine. Taking another deep breath, she grabbed her stuff and headed in, getting things squared away and being shown around, she was heading into the teacher’s lounge and stood at the door a smile that she reserved only for Dexter on her face. “Dex! Took you long enough to recognize me, you’ve been hanging with these Yanks too long, don’t you think.” She teased, not hesitating to return his hug, holding on tightly. “Several reasons. I mainly needed a change of scenery and I’ve missed my best friend.” She answered, still smiling.
dex/courtneyyyy | they're gonna be sooooo great! :3

close your eyes and dream
was this for real? was dexter seriously looking into the blue eyes of the one girl he loved? the one girl that he wanted to marry? marley whitlock. and it should be marley monroe, dammit. that was what it was suppsoed to be by now. but, no. dexter had to be too restless for her. he had to want to travel and be himself. but he wanted to be himself with her. "it's just...a shock! i was just thinking of you!" dexter laughed and wrapped her up in a hug again. this felt normal. it felt right, holding the blonde in his arms. he squeezed his best friend tightly. but then he felt something absent...he didn't feel a bump between them, like there should have been.
he pulled away and smiled, but it being a little more forced than it should have been. but then it formed into his true, happy, bright smile. the charming, confident one. he kissed her cheek. "my God, i've missed you too much." he blinked, emotions tearing at his chest. and then the curiousity got to him. he let go of her arms, sliding his hands over her elbows and linknig hands with her. he looked up and down her body, letting go of one hand and making her spin for him. "look at you. looking as beautiful as ever." he smiled and grabbed her hand again, head tipping to the side, waiting for her to explain why she was suddenly not pregnant. did she had the baby and not tell him? not possible.
dexter looked back into her blue eyes with his green ones and grinned. "is the don man living here with you? i want to meet the man who stole my best friend's heart." he grinned and happily groaned, pullnig her into another hug before pulling her over to the confrence table for them to sit at. "tell me everything. is grandma p liking the nursing home?" and please tell me what happened to the baby, he pleaded in his head and with his eyes not wanting to push the subject with her. it mgiht be fragile. but he prayed not. he prayed she just had the little sea monkey and don was at their home taking care of it.
