Derek sighs heavily and looks at his phone.
“Flash cards,” Stilinski offers with a weak attempt at enthusiasm. Derek gives him a flat look. “Learning,” Stilinski adds. He’s using a slightly hushed tone, because they’re in the library, at a small table tucked into a corner behind the reference section. He displays a flash card labeled Railroad Strike, Great!! like he’s Vanna White. Derek has fleeting fantasies of shoving the guy out of his chair. When it becomes immediately clear Derek’s not even gonna pretend to care, he sighs and tosses the card and its cohorts onto the table. “Okay, I get it,” Stilinski levels with him. “It sucks. You don’t like it.”
“I don’t like it,” Derek agrees. “You think history’s hard for me? You think I just need help understanding the concepts of remembering shit?”
“No,” says Stilinski, irritated. “I think you need to get your ass in gear, and Ms. Nguyen thinks you’ll go, oh, if I do well in this class, she won’t make me hang out with Stiles anymore.”
Huh? “What are stiles?” Stilinski gives him the sort of look you might get on your face if you were being hypnotized into watching Nick Jr. Oh. “Really? Stiles? That doesn’t even make sense. That’s not even the same vowel sound.”
