sterek hs au: stiles is grounded, so derek sneaks in through the window.
Stiles jumps and makes an awkward squeaking noise when he hears something tap on his window. He glances over to see Derek’s face peering through the glass. He tries to regain some of his dignity as he crosses the room to flip the latch and raise the window.
“You do know that I have a front door?” Stiles asks as Derek easily leaps over the sill, landing gracefully and silently.
Derek straightens and shrugs, then gives Stiles a cocky smirk. “Figured you might not want your dad to know I’m here.”
Stiles plops down on the bed, frowning. “Being grounded sucks.”
“It’s your own fault,” Derek says as he starts walking around Stiles’ room aimlessly. He goes over to a shelf and starts touching the action figures lining the edge. Stiles stares at him appreciatively, from the tight jeans to the leather jacket that’s slightly too big for Derek’s frame. “You shouldn’t have lied to him.”
“You should have been paying more attention to the surroundings! What’s the point of having a werewolf boyfriend if he can’t even hear approaching cars or deputies approaching the car!” Stiles frowns at Derek’s back, and as if Derek can feel it, he turns around with a raised brow.
Derek snorts. “Did she bully you into picking a ridiculous name, too?”
Stiles gives him an indignant look. “It’s my real name actually. Well, not my real name real name,” he amends when Derek raises a judgmental eyebrow. “But trust me, you don’t want to know my legal first name. Over twenty years and my Dad still can’t pronounce it correctly. Hell, I’m not even sure I can pronounce it correctly, it’s a fucking monstrosity. Also, Miguel, you don’t have much room to talk, because I’m pretty sure you’re not actually of Spanish descent.”
Anyway,” Stiles is saying, as Derek tunes in again. “Everyone’s busy and I don’t wanna spend Valentine’s being pitied by my dad, and you have your Forever Alone thing going on, so I figured we might spend Valentine’s being alone together.
Derek’s grandmother relishes setting her single grandchildren up on Valentine’s Day. Only, less ‘setting up’ and more 'forcing them to run a singles-only scavenger hunt where the prize is love or at least sex’.
