Jealousy (can it be with stiles)
You were sat in the school’s library, reading your book about the Dread Doctors that bored you at most points but here and there something interesting came up. You were surprisingly not surrounded by your friends, opting to just sit alone and try to focus on your reading. It was important to Scott and you wanted to learn as much as you could to help. Being one of the only two humans in the pack, it was important to you to try as hard as you could.
“Hey y/n” Speaking of humans..
“Hey Stiles what’re you doing here?” You asked, confused when he sat down across from you. Stiles never went to the library.
“Kira told me you came here to read” He said, and you nodded, waiting for some explanation as to why he’d come, but he just pulled out his own copy and began to read as well. You stared at him strangely for a few more moments. “What?” Stiles asked, unable to focus with you looking at him like that.
“N-nothing” You stuttered, down casting your gaze immediately. Truth be told you were still harboring feelings for the boy… since freshman year anyways.
“How far are you?” He asked you after you’d gotten through another chapter.
“Chapter six, you?” Stiles was silent. “What part are you on?” You asked him again.
“Four” You shrugged.
“That’s fine, you’re all more busy than me, we’re not all going to read at the same pace you know” You said sweetly, and he smiled slightly at you. “Hey, how are you by the way?” You closed your book, letting it sit on the table. “Scott told me that you and Malia… sorta broke up” Stiles licked his lips, closing his own book.
“Yeah… yeah it just wasn’t.. It wasn’t working” You nodded, expression laced with concern.
“Did she not understand the Donovan thing?” You whispered, leaning across the table so you weren’t announcing it to the entire library.
“Uh, well I guess she did” Stiles rubbed the back of his neck, and you cocked your head to the side. “I just… I couldn’t be with her anymore” You smiled sympathetically, resting a hand on his arm.
“That’s alright, Stiles” You told him softly. “If you weren’t feeling it, you weren’t feeling. No one can hold you to love someone” He stared at you for a long moment, then licked his lips and nodded.
“Yeah.. yeah you’re right” He said, and you smiled at him again.
“Maybe after school we can go-”
“y/n” You instantly leaned back in your chair and looked up to see Theo standing by your table, a hand placed flat on it as he seemed to lean towards you. You stared at said hand, puzzled as to why he was here.
“Um, hi?” You glanced to Stiles for a moment, who’s eyes were hard set on you. You looked back up to Theo. “Do you need something?” You asked him, trying not to sound rude, but wanting him to leave.
“No, well, not really I just saw you sitting here and thought I’d come say hi”
“Well… hi” You said with an awkwad smile. “I’m sorta busy-”
“Would you like to come with me to a party?” He asked abruptly. Your brows raised in surprise, unsure of how to respond.
“U-uhm I can’t” You stumbled over your words, helplessly glancing to Stiles.
“We’re kinds busy here” Stiles said, leaning forward in his seat and narrowing his eyes at Theo.
“Butt out Stiloinski go find your coyote bitch” Theo grumbled his way.
“Alright Theo I need you to leave” You said firmly, glaring up at him now. When he didn’t budge you jerked my hand towards the library’s exit. “Go, now” He rolled his eyes and scoffed.
“Fine, I’ll just find another pretty thing to take” He said. “You’re nothing special y/n, there’s a million of you”
“Theo get the fuck out” Stiles slammed on the table as he stood, sending his chair backwards. You jumped in your seat, frightened by the sudden action. Again, Theo didn’t bother to move. “y/n get your things we’re going somewhere else” Stiles muttered. You didn’t waste a second, stuffing your book into your bag and throwing it over your shoulder. Stiles came around the table quickly, placing his hand on your back as he guided you out of the library.
“Oh how caring of you Stiles!” Theo called. You ignored him, but Stiles grimaced.
“Come on, let’s go outside” You spoke softly, hooking your hand around his elbow. He didn’t say anything, just followed next to you out to the courtyard. When you sat down on the steps with him, you released his arm and curled your hands together in your lap. “I’m sorry”
“You are?” Stiles looked at you, bewilderment on his face. “y/n, you didn’t do anything wrong” You shrugged your shoulders.
“I put you in a position where you could’ve gotten yourself hurt” You spoke quietly. Stiles chuckled and shook his head.
“No, you didn’t, that was all me” Your brows furrowed but you refused to look at him. It was quiet for a bit, as he watched you and you looked anywhere but at him. “y/n”
“Hm?” You heard him take in, and let out, a deep breath.
“Malia and I broke up because she found out I was in love with you”
You did a double take, staring at him with wide eyes.
“W-what?” He shrugged, a sheepish look on his face.
“It’s true” Stiles said simply. “So don’t apologize, I would’ve gladly done it again” You blinked, not believing him.
“Did you not hear what Theo said?” You asked slowly. “I’m nothing special, I’m just like every other-”
Stiles cupped your cheeks, leaning forward and pressing his lips against yours before you could finish speaking. You had your eyes open, you actually both did, and you stared at him as your lips moved softly against his. When they pulled away, you still watched him.
“Don’t ever say that again” He scolded quietly, thumbs circling over your cheekbones.
“I love you” You whispered out.
“That.. that you can say again” Stiles smiled and you did too, your eyes crinkling slightly.
“I love you” You repeated before leaning up and kissing him once more, closing your eyes this time.
