to late to know

lets go




"You, let things go." Mitch told Derrick. "You, need to fix this."

Why did Derrick feel the need to tell Mitch everything? He told him about the fight with Hansen. Naturally, Mitch wanted to know what Hansen ever did to him. Of course, it was about Daisy, but Daisy was a tricky subject, too.

First he needed to apologize to Hansen. Except Hansen didn't really give him a chance.

"Daisy's gone." Hansen told him when he got to work.

"What do you mean, she's gone?" Derrick looked at him as if Hansen did something wrong. "I thought you two..were..tight."

"I don't know everything." But Hansen was connecting the dots. Max wasn't at work, either.

"He was scheduled to work." Derrick looked.  Of course, Hansen assumed the worst even if he made it sound not so bad. "Maybe they made up."

"Max wouldn't do that. He's with Sara now." Derrick was certain Sara had Max wrapped around her little finger.

Hansen didn't really know anything. He told him how Daisy wanted him to go to Denver. How she wanted to come with him, but he felt it best just to stay here. After all, he was starting cooking school in the fall. He wanted to save his money, and he didn't really want to run in to his brother.

"I think Daisy wanted to just go. Anywhere." Hansen crossed his arms. "She feels like everyone is moving on, but her."

"Its not your fault." Derrick decided. If only he could be her friend, he'd messed that up. They weren't exactly on speaking terms.

"That really makes me feel so much better," Hansen said ever so cynical. He went back to making pizza dough.

"What do you want me to say? Every messed up thing with her, is my fault?" Derrick felt lousy about this.

"Maybe." Hansen shrugged.

"You two, aren't over. Right?" Derrick asked as if he was taking his time getting to the task he needed to start. He'd barely gotten his apron on.

"I don't know. Maybe we were never really ..anything." As sad as he said it, he sounded so certain, as if he'd gained wisdom just watching the dough churn in the big mixer.

"Oh, god." Derrick hoped this didn't turn out badly.

Aw, I feel bad for Hansen. I think he's been really good to Daisy.

Something is definitely up. And Hansen might figure it out before Derrick does.

If Hansen lays the blame on himself he will only ever feel bad but it's great that Derrick's being a supportive friend :) Hope everythingsorts itself out!
