"Stiles," Derek sighs, eyes remaining closed. "Go to sleep."
"I’m trying," Stiles says, pulse quickening.
"No, you’re not. You’re staring at me." He slowly opens his eyes then, meeting Stiles’ gaze in the dim darkness of the boy’s bedroom. Stiles smiles, feeling his heart flutter warm in his chest. Derek blinks. "What?"
Stiles inches closer, moving his arm to play with Derek’s hair rather than his own. Derek’s eyes flicker over his face, filled with wonder.
"You look adorable when you sleep," Stiles admits in a murmur.
Stiles can’t help but notice how good -he’s like the baby whisperer or something- Derek is with the babies in the pack and feels that they’re due for a pup of their own, ASAP. He leaves not so subtle hints in the hope that Derek can figure things out by himself. Turns out Derek’s more oblivious than he thought.
Sterek AU: Stiles shows Derek the plan he has set up to get rid of the Nogitsune before it completely takes over Stiles’ mind and body. Derek asks an irrelevant question that is actually pretty important.
