#74 + Sterek, please!
74. “It’s been 10 years how do you still look so good?”
High school reunions are suppose to be an event where kids who were awkward in high school get to show off how successful they are. Stiles had spent most of high school looking forward to the fact that he would eventually be successful and he could rub it in everyone’s face.
He had gone off to school in D.C., gotten recruited by the the FBI and the CIA, and eventually joined up with the CIA. He spent the ages of 22 to 26 working undercover ops overseas.
It wasn’t a job he could brag about though. Most of his work was top secret, need to know only.
His dad thought he was working for a bank that had him stationed in England. It was a great job, he loved it even if he did miss his dad.
When he was 27 he was involved in a hostage situation in Tunisia. When he got out the CIA decided that he could stay stateside for awhile. He was excited until he realized that meant he would be able to go to his high school reunion.
“Come on Stiles, you haven’t been home in years,” Scott said, “Not since my wedding.”
“I know buddy,” Stiles said, running a hand over his face as he tried to think of an excuse, “But we have a huge uh, thing at work. I can’t get out of the office.”
“Stiles come on!” Scott whined, “I heard that Derek Hale will be at the reunion.”
“Hard pass,” Stiles said, looking over his shoulder. It was habit at this point, making sure he had every exit covered.
“Don’t you want to meet your goddaughter,” Scott said, pulling out the big guns to get Stiles back to Beacon Hills.
“Fine,” Stiles said after a moment, “I mean I have to clear it with my boss, but yeah fine.”
He could hear the smile in Scott’s voice, “Awesome! I’ll tell your dad.”
