Summary: It doesn’t matter how low key a relationship is; it’s the
small things people notice to see just how high key in love you are.
Author’s Note: I’ve written for Derek twice, ever. The first for “Seven Kisses” and the second for his microfics. I always felt like I’ve had so much trouble with writing Derek, so this is a practice run and hopefully I can keep writing for this delicious piece of man.
It’s Cora who notices first.
She had to do a double take to be sure she wasn’t imagining
it; she had caught whiff of the slightest scent of perfume lingering on Derek
when he walked by. There was no way that it was his, or even hers. So why did
her brother smell like perfume? She got her answer later that night when Scott introduced
her to a new member of his pack when everyone gathered in the loft.
“Cora,” says Scott, “this is [Name]. She’s a witch.”
She does not say anything and only cocks an eyebrow. The
girl looks to be no older than Derek, and her perfume is pronounced. She almost
wants to ask why it was on her brother. But she has more tact than that. “So
how did you come to be part of this pack?” she asks. She had been gone for the past
couple of years; she had a lot to catch up on.
“I got caught in the crossfire of a fight with an old alpha
werewolf,” [Name] answers with a sheepish smile. “They thought I needed
“And you thought you’d join because…?”
She shrugs her shoulders. “It’s not like I have a coven
Derek brushes past them to get to the kitchen, and though
[Name]’s attention is still on her, Cora hears her heart jump slightly. Cora’s
eyes quickly dart between the girl and her brother, and it all made sense.
There’s careful control between them to not give away, what she assumed, the
secret they shared.
They weren’t ready to tell the whole world about them, and
out of respect, Cora kept quiet.
Summary: Weddings are romantic affairs; from the suits and dresses to
the lights in the sky to good company, it’s quite easy to get lost in the
Author’s Note: AU where everyone is alive and happy and if they left Beacon Hills, they came back because I wanted goddamn sunshine and rainbows. (Also, this is an actual imagine now? Cause I used [Name]. Baby steps, yo.) And to add one more thing to be excited for, there is smut in this! No small teasing stuff; just my very first, full blown, fully written out smut in my whole writing career that is actually finished. I’m quite proud of this story, so enjoy <3
They hadn’t seen each other in seven years, and the first
time Isaac sees her, it’s a glimpse of her profile.
He had gotten off the plane from France not three hours ago
before rushing to the McCall residence to shower and change into his suit.
Isaac would have had time to greet her if his pants had not caught itself on
the hook of his hanger and ripped
open; Melissa had to hastily sew it back together to make it look presentable.
Melissa rushes them both to the wedding with a few minutes to spare, and Isaac
chooses his seat beside Boyd.
Scott and Kira’s wedding is small, (Isaac guesses a little
over a hundred guests) with everyone packed into a small clearing in the Beacon
Hills Preserve. Sunlight pours through the foliage of the trees, and Isaac
notices the thousand paper cranes tied to the branches, along the chairs, and
hanging from the wedding arch amongst the flowers.
The pack’s seating chart is in complete disarray. It’s
impossible for them to sit just on one side because they were there for both
the bride and groom. He’s sitting on Scott’s side, and he spots her sitting on
Kira’s side between Allison and Mason. She laughs and leans across Mason to
whisper something to Hayden. The four of them laugh, and when she leans back in
her seat, she catches his eye. He grins and waves at her; the corners of her
lips turn upwards and she waves back. Her eyes linger on him until the string
quartet begin to play and the procession starts.
He doesn’t stop staring at her though because all he can
think about is the softness in her eyes that reminded him of when they first
you asked, there was no way you were an angel
you know those with white wings, gowns, halos…” Magnus said motioning with his
fingers a halo above his head
know what angels are” Derek said, not believing a word of what Magnus said
“But how is
it possible? There’s no such thing as angels” you said, finally speaking up
such thing as werewolves, yet here we have two” he said pointing at Scott and
“But… how? It
doesn’t make sense, my parents…” Magnus interrupted you
not actually your parents” you frowned
he interrupted you, again
have parents. Because you weren’t
conceived, you were created”
you asked and he shook his head
something I don’t know. Only you know
that, you just need to remember.” He said and you sighed; this was too much for
just one day. “Listen, I know some people that might help you, why don’t you
stop by tomorrow morning and we’ll talk”
“How do we
know we can trust them?” Derek said
with a serious voice and a frown.
they’re the only ones who can help your friend get her memories back”
do that?” Kira asked “I mean, I know you can do it, you are a Warlock, after
all” she said. A Warlock? You could deal with werewolves, hunters,
nogitsunes, even crazy scientists and professional assassins. But Warlocks?
Angels? This took crazy to a whole other level.
“I cannot. My
magic does not work with angels, they are much more powerful than all warlocks
in the world together” your breathing stopped. You felt sick, like you were
gonna puke. You held Derek’s hand and he turned to look at you
okay? You look pale,” he held one of his hands against your cheek and the other
one against your forehead “you’re cold” he said removing his hands from your
face and placing one of them in your back.
it’s just, too much for tonight”
you out of here, we’ll come back tomorrow” he said standing up but you shook
your head ‘no’.
you said but he didn’t move “really” he sighed and sat down.
“I have a
question” Scott said and all of you turned your attention to him
really is an angel, then why did we never realize, why now?”
her,” Magnus said, he frowned and looked at you, Magnus shook his head “no, not
like that. With your real eyes” Scott looked at him, then closed his eyes and
when he opened them they were bright red. He turned to look at you and he
is it?” you asked him. He closed his eyes, shook his head a bit and his eyes
were back to normal.
there’s an aura around you, like Kira’s, but it’s white”. Derek did the same
thing with his wolf eyes.
you never knew about her, was because her powers were… asleep. She never had a
reason to use them.”
those times my friends were in danger, I could’ve protected them. I could’ve
you said it yourself, your friends were the ones in danger, not you.” You frowned,
not understanding what he said, “you’ve faced bad things before, right?” you
nodded. “Were you ever kidnapped?” you looked to the ground and nodded
slightly, remembering that time the Dread Doctors almost used you as their
science fair project. “Did you use your powers that time?”
“No” you said
looking at him
because, your friends were there to help you. Your powers only show when you
are in real danger and there’s no one who can save you. Those bullets they
used, they should’ve had something in them, something that would stop your
friends from helping you.”
you all said at the same time.
Magnus said. “listen, it’s getting late and you must be tired, why don’t you go
sleep and tomorrow you’ll meet my friends and we’ll help you, okay?” You nodded
and you all stood up. You said goodbye to Magnus and walked away. You were
about to leave the room when he called you
said and you turned to look at him. “Try to remember” he said before he walked
away, you turned to your friends and walked out of the club.
was pacing back and forth, and everyone else was just staring at him
you doing?” Lydia asked, Stiles looked up from the ground and looked at
everyone staring back at him
called pacing, you know? I tend to do that a lot”
stop? You’re gonna make a hole on the ground” Malia said being her honest self,
“I’m getting dizzy just looking at you”
my girlfriend and my friends are in there with some random guy trying to find
out what’s wrong with her and they’ve been in there for like an hour and I can’t
do anything to help her because I’m just a simple human” he rambled.
you said, you walked out of the club just in time to hear him. He had his back
facing you, and when he turned and saw you standing there he couldn’t contain
himself and ran to you.
god, you’re okay. You’re okay, aren’t you?” he talked fast and you nodded. He
placed his hands on both sides of your face and kissed you. You were surprised,
to say the least. Considering the fact that you weren’t that much into PDA, especially
in front of the pack; you would always hold hands or he’d have his arm around
your shoulders or your waist, but you didn’t like kissing in front of everyone.
You liked privacy, but right then, it was the heat of the moment. He kissed you
and once he broke the kiss he eyed you head to toe, making sure you were really
you so long? Stiles was about to rip his hair out” Braeden joked
you at the hotel, we should probably go. It’s been a long day” Scott said and
you all agreed. When you were climbing in the car you decided to switch with
Malia. But Derek stopped all of you
we go to the airport?”
you want to go to the airport?” Stiles asked
“I have a
surprise for you” he simply said before getting in to car
the GPS on your phone and searched for the New York airport, Stiles was
driving; following your instructions, the rest of the pack right behind you. When
you got there you parked a few streets before the actual airport so you didn’t
have to pay the parking lot. Stiles’ idea. When you got there, Derek called
whoever had just arrived and told him/her you were waiting outside. You wouldn’t
be hard to spot, a group of seven kids and two adults was not hard to miss.
to Derek and when he saw you, he smiled
are we waiting for?” you asked and he looked around
said pointing somewhere. You looked to where he was pointing and found Cora
walking up to you guys.
she doing here? I thought she had to go back to South America” you asked him,
clearly surprised that she was there. He nodded
but she wanted to be here with you” when you looked back at her she was greeting
everyone , you walked up to her you hugged her
for being here” you said and you felt her hug you back
to be here. I know how scary all of this must be” you separated and let her say
hi to her brother.
“Can we go
sleep now?” Liam asked and you all laughed. It was almost one in the morning
and you hadn’t sleep well the past few days. You walked out of the airport, and
got to the cars.
You opened the GPS again and searched the hotel Lydia had
previously reserved. When you got there you asked for your rooms. Lydia
reserved three rooms, which meant all of you would be sharing. It would be
Stiles, Scott, Kira and you in one room, Malia, Lydia and Liam in other, and
Derek, Braeden and Cora in the last one. The ten of you got to the elevator and
had two split in two for the elevator to actually work. When you reached your
rooms you all said goodbye and went to bed. But you couldn’t sleep, you kept
tossing and turning and wondered how you had not woken Stiles up yet.
The word ‘angel’
ran through your mind, you reached out to grab your phone from the nightstand.
One of a class of spiritual beings; a celestial attendant of God.
Google told you when you searched the word angel.
You wondered how it was possible that you, a normal eighteen-year-old were
in fact, an angel. You put your phone back to where it originally was and
started making scenarios in your mind; you pictured yourself with wings, a
white gown and a halo above your head; then you pictured yourself as those ‘fallen
angels’ you used to read about. With scars where the wings were supposed to be.
Without noticing you started drifting away, sinking in your own thoughts until
eventually, you fell asleep.
woke up the next morning, Scott and Kira were not in the room, Stiles was
fixing his hair.
is it?” you asked rubbing your eyes with the back of your hand
he responded sitting next to you while he was putting his shoes on
“You let me
sleep until 10:30?” you asked and got out of bed quickly, regretting it later
when you felt dizziness.
alright?” he asked and you nodded
shouldn’t have done that” you said standing up
“How do you
feel?” he asked you. You took a moment before answering
know” your answered made him worried and he turned to look at you
that?” he asked
that… everyone else had someone to teach them how to use their powers” you said
before you sat down next to Stiles, he wrapped his arms around you “Scott had
Derek, Malia and Liam had Scott, Kira had her mother. And Lydia… she had
Meredith, I’ve got no one. What if I hurt one of you? What if I hurt all of you?”
And you have us, your pack; and now we’ve got more people to help you, you don’t
have to worry about anything.”
“But I do,
I need to know who I am. What I am.” You said looking at him in the eyes
“And you will,
you just need to be patient.” You nodded at him “Now go get a shower, you stink”
he said shoving you out of his grip playfully. You both laughed and you kissed
I don’t know what I’d do without you” you wrapped your arms around his neck.
probably be dead by now” you slapped him in the chest laughing
“Get out of
here” you told him getting clothes and a towel as well as shower supplies.
and an expensive breakfast in the hotel restaurant later, paid by your favorite
sour wolf, you all jumped to the cars again. You were honestly tired of sitting
all the time and the thought of actually walking to the Pandemonium crossed
your mind. But you shook it out of your head when you realized you’d probably get
lost in the middle of New York.
got there you all walked towards the main entrance, there wasn’t a security
guard outside the door like yesterday. You walked in and started looking for
Magnus, when you spotted him he waved at you. Two boys standing behind him, one
with dark hair and the other was blonde.
Angel, wolves,” he nodded at Kira, you, Scott and Derek “people who I don’t
know.” he looked at the rest of the pack. “Welcome to the Pandemonium”
you?” Malia asked and you held your breath, for once, you wished Malia wasn’t so
straightforward. You expected Magnus to get angry or mad at the way Malia was
talking to him, but he did not care.
Like a magician?” Malia asked, but this time Magnus just looked at her
Liam asked and it took all your willpower not to laugh.
One of the boys asked. He had dark hair and blue eyes, he was cute.
a movie” you said. The one with the blonde hair looked to the other guy and the
one with dark hair shrugged his shoulders
“No” Magnus said moving his index finger
you, by the way?” This time Lydia asked
Alec” the brunette said
introduced yourself and they nodded at you. You noticed they were both covered
in matching tattoos.
and this is my pack” he said pointing at all of you
in a pack of animals”
animals,” Lydia said “we’re supernatural creatures” They both seemed completely
are werewolves” you said pointing at Scott, Liam, Derek and Cora
have those” blondie said
werecoyote” you pointed to Malia. “Banshee” you pointed at Lydia. “Kitsune”
told me about you… you’re the fox, right?” Alec asked Kira and she nodded
are you three?” Jace asked
you began to say “they are humans”
Jace asked again
looked at Magnus, and he nodded slightly at you. Suddenly you felt a shot of
confidence running through your body, you lifted your head up a little bit, you
looked at Stiles next to you, smiling. “I’m an angel”
I figured you guys could use another Hale around here- one who might actually be useful.
Cora returns to Beacon Hills after hearing about the problems going on from Derek. As much as it wounds his pride to admit they need help handling everything, Stiles can’t help but be excited that she’s back.
I just need a moment to appreciate Stydia trailing behind. I wonder how many times Stiles and Lydia are left at the back in times where it’s “too dangerous” and they just talk and make up plans on how to figure things out.
