This cannot be happening to him.
Of course it’s happening to him. Who else could this possibly happen to?
Stiles consider ducking into the bathroom or finding a supply closet, hide there for the rest of the night. He could also run back to his car and drive back home. His apartment is only a couple blocks away from the recreation centre where the Sheriff’s Department is holding its Halloween party, he could be hiding under the covers within fifteen minutes.
Technically, only employees and their partners are invited to this, but Stiles has been helping with organizing the Halloween party since he was eighteen. And with the hours he spends at the station, he likes to consider himself an honorary deputy. Even if his dad disagrees.
A sharp whistle sounds through the air, quickly followed by others. Well, they’ve seen him. If he runs now, he’ll be branded a coward, which will invite far worse jokes than if he stays.
‘Stiles,’ his dad says, breaking loose from the small crowd that has gathered to watch Stiles’ entrance. Stiles has only been here ten seconds and his dad already looks like he wants to bang his head against the wall. ‘Please tell me you didn’t get my message.’
‘Obviously,’ Stiles hisses. ‘I thought there was supposed to be a theme.’
