Addison remembered that dress. How the fabric felt, balled up in her fists as she had lifted it above her lover’s knees. A dark, navy, v-cut that looked absolutely perfect on Izzie’s body. How it framed her hips, how it hung loosely around her breasts, it was utter perfection.

It happened one year ago, in the back of Addison’s car, during a picnic for the surgical attendings and few select interns and residents who have done an exceptional job. Izzie attended and wore the same dress she was wearing now, one year later, at the 2007 picnic.

As Derek put his hand over hers, Addison wondered if Izzie remembered. How could she not?

It wouldn’t matter if Izzie did remember how Addison had ran her hands over Izzie’s pale, smooth breasts or how Izzie ran her lips all the way down Addison’s torso. It wouldn’t matter because Addison was suppoused to be in love with a man who loved her to the world and back. Derek Shepherd. He was amazing. Sweet, smart, compassionate, undeniably gorgeous. He loved Addison for all that she was, in an un-conditional, child-like sort of fashion.

Addison was happy with Derek, who wouldn’t be? They were perfect for each other. But sometimes, when Addison watches Izzie’s delicate hands moving during surgery or hears her infectious laugh bubble through the cafeteria, Addison longed for the feeling of her lips against the younger woman’s.

They had messed around before that time in the back of Addison’s car, and before as well. Twice in a hospital bathroom stall, several times in different linens closets and god knows how many times in an on-call room. But since Addison started sporting that five-hundred dollar diamond ring on her wedding finger, barely a word was exchanged between the two.

There had been times when Addison contemplated telling Izzie she was sorry for marrying Derek and how she missed holding Izzie’s hand in the elevator or rubbing her back in the stairwell after a hard day.

But the life was not that simple. Addison couldn’t let herself fall for Dr. Stevens. She couldn’t cheat on Derek again. She would ruin her marriage if Derek ever found out, she would loose all her friend, and worst of all? Izzie might not still feel the same way about her. She was an incredibly strong woman, and it wouldn’t surprise Addison if Izzie had moved on.

Who knows? By the way she laughed and talked with Alex, Addison thought that Izzie may be doing him.

Isobel Karev. Addison might vomit right there and then.

Turning, Addison smiled at Derek, giving him a light kiss on the cheek, though his skin felt cold against her lips.

“I love you,” Derek said softly as Addison placed her head on his shoulder.

“Me too,” she replied. She couldn’t quite bring herself to say “I love you,” to Derek. Not now. Not with Izzie right there, in that dress, looking so radiant with her flowing blonde hair and bright eyes.

Maybe Addison wasn’t as over Izzie as she thought she was.
