Howling Forever - Stiles/Derek - teaser/snippet
Even without the super hearing Stiles recognized the sound of someone approaching from behind when he walked up to the house. He stopped, not sure whether to be flattered or annoyed by the kids’ worry.
“Scott, I said I’m fine!” He clarified once again, swirling around.
But it wasn’t Scott standing on the side of the path. It was Derek. The werewolf’s black shape was nothing but a shadow, standing among the trees with its red eyes glowing through the forest’s mist. He clipped with his ears in a insecure manner, and Stiles couldn’t recall him ever looking more like a puppy.
He sighed, shoving his hands down his pockets. His heart started throbbing the moment their eyes finally met again. If Derek’s did the same, he couldn’t tell.
“Gonna tell me why?” He asked, shrugging lightly.
Derek couldn’t answer him in this form. Stiles knew that. But those big ears could still hear him. Hear the betrayal in his voice and the racing of his pulse. Those big eyes could still see the regret in his gaze and how his body trembled.
“You ran away,” he mumbled lowly. “I thought we promised we wouldn’t do that.”
