It was just an ordinary day. Tyler was finally home from tour and we had nothing planned for the day. All day we were just chilling. Sitting on the couch and watching TV, you know the usual. We were about halfway through our third movie when Tyler decided to speak up.
“We should do something today.” He said to me.
“We are doing something today, we are watching movies.” I told him with a little sass in my voice.
He chuckled at me. “No.” He said. “I mean something actually productive.” He said seriously.
I sighed at this. Did he really want to do something productive? I knew that I didn’t really want to but if Tyler wanted to do something then I was going to do it too.
“Fine.” I told him with a slight roll of my eyes. “What do you want to do?” I asked him as I paused the movie that was still playing.
“Can we go to the mall?” He asked me. “I really need some new clothes.” He told me.
“Okay.” I agreed. I guess the mall couldn’t be too bad, and plus I did need new summer clothes. I stood up from the couch to get dressed into something more appropriate for the mall.
“Your driving by the way Ty.” I told him before I left. I heard him sigh as I turned around and walked into our bedroom. Fifteen minutes later I walked out of our bedroom dressed and ready to go.
I met Tyler at the door. “You look beautiful.” He said to me.
“Thanks babe.” I said as I leaned in to give him a kiss. Once we pulled away we were out the door.
At the Mall
We have been at the mall for about 15 minutes now and Tyler and I were just walking around and looking at stuff. Nothing caught our eye yet until we walked pass an Adidas store.
“Can we go in here Y/N?” Tyler asked me as we stood in front of the entrance.
I laughed. He looked so excited and cute. “Of course we can babe.” I told him with a nod. And with that we were off.
We have been in the store for about 5 minutes now and I was just browsing the racks. I had lost Tyler the second we had walked in here but I figured that if he needed me for anything he would come and find me.
As I was browsing through the jackets that the store had I could feel sets of eyes staring at me. I turned my body slightly around and noticed a group of guys looking straight at me. I made eye contact with one of them. Once I did he smiled at me. Not wanting to be rude I smiled back and turned back around.
A few seconds had passed and I could still feel their eyes on me. It was making me really uncomfortable. After a few minutes of looking at the jackets I could feel a presence coming up behind me.
“Hey babe find anything good?” I immediantley recognized it as Ty’s voice. Thank god it wan’t one of the boys.
“Nah.” I answered him as I turned around to face him. “How about you?” I asked returning the question.
“Nope.” He said with a laugh. “I either already have it or I just don’t like it.” He said with a laughed. I laughed too. It was true though, Tyler did have a lot of Adidas clothes.
“Well then are you ready to go?” I asked him with a smile.
He nodded. “Yeah, let’s go.” He said as he took my hand and laced our fingers together. When we were walking out I didn’t see the group of guys. Thank god. I really didn’t feel like getting stared at again.
But it looks like luck wasn’t on my side because just as we were about to leave the store we heard whistles and shouts from behind us.
“Damn baby, you got a nice ass on ya.” A guy said to me. Tyler turned around so fast that I thought he was going to break his neck.
“What did you say to her?” Tyler asked the guy. I noticed that it was the same group of guys from earlier. The guy that made the comment was the guy that I smiled at earlier to try and be nice.
“Are you dumb or something?” The guy asked Tyler. “I said that she has a nice ass on her.” He repeated himself. If looks could kill this kid would be dead.
I could feel Tyler start to shake in anger.
“You don’t get to speak to her like that.” He told the guy. His face turning red.
The other guy gave a light chuckle. “And you don’t get to tell me what to do man?” He said right back to Tyler.
I didn’t want Tyler to get into a fight so I leaned into him and whispered in his ear so only I could hear him.
“Ty, just ignore him.” I told him. “He’s not even worth it.” I continued to tell him, in hopes that it would calm him down. Surprisingly enough it did.
I saw Tyler take a deep breath and turn to me. “Your right.” He said. “He isn’t worth it.” He told me with a smile. “Let’s just leave.” He finished.
I nodded at him. Before we turned around Tyler pulled me in for a big kiss. I hungrily responded into the kiss. Once we broke apart I looked up to see if the group of guys were still there. Thankfully they were not. Tyler noticed this too.
“Hey look.” He said to me. “Those assholes finally left.” He said.
I nodded. “Thank god.” I said. He nodded in agreement and turned around to walk out of the store. As we were walking we fell into a silence. Not an awkward silence, but a comfortable one. After a while of this I noticed that I never thanked Tyler for defending me.
“Thanks for defending me babe.” I told him as we exited the mall.
He turned his head to look at me. “No problem baby, it’s my job and plus I did get a little jealous when those guys wouldn’t stop staring at you.”
I was shocked Tyler jealous? Please. “Ty you have nothing to be jealous about.” I told him truthfully. “Those guys were assholes and I love you and only you.” I told him.
He smiled widely at me. “Thanks Y/N.” He said. “I love you too and I’m always going to be here to protect you.” He said to me as he leaned down to give me a peck on the forehead. We had finally reached the car.
Tyler pulled me in for one last kiss before we split to get in. This kiss was different from the kiss that we had in the store. Instead of being filled with hunger and anger this kiss was filled with passion, and love. Once we parted I walked to the other side. Once we both were settled in Tyler started the car and we were off to another adventure.
A/N: Here it is! Sorry again that it took so late. I was just really busy this past weekend but like I said in my last post I’m not going to be busy this weekend so I will have plenty of time to write. Thank you for all the likes on the Josh fic. I really appreciate it and I hope the person that requested this one likes it. Have a great day/night wherever you are. Remember requests are still open.
He’s wearing nothing but his customary leather jacket and he looks soaked to the bone. His hair is plastered against his forehead; water is running in actual, honest-to-goodness rivulets off the ends of his sleeves; and he’s shaking ever so slightly, werewolf body temperature be damned.
The sheer amount of wet dog jokes Stiles could be making right now is almost overwhelming, but he’s more concerned with just how long Derek has been brooding on his driveway and, most importantly, why.
So last week How It Works hit 700 kudos on AO3 (thank you all so much!) and in celebration I decided to commission aredblush to create some art to go with the fic.
And I am beyond thrilled with the final product! So, let me take a minute to rave about aredblush. Nas made the whole process so easy and so much fun. We were in constant (super cute) contact the entire time and Nas sent me progress pictures so I could see the art taking shape. The complete process, from initial contact to finished product, took less than two weeks, and though the turn around was super quick, the quality of Nas’ work is amazing (as you can see). I’m also getting the original art snail mailed to me and I am so excited!
Nas, thank you so so much for all of your hard work! I love it to pieces and I could not be happier ♥
