Speak To Me
@sunshinexlollipops - Happy Sterekmas! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to create this fic for you! ENJOY!!
Confusion. “Why is he so ugly?”
Resentment. “Is he going to cry like that all the time?”
Disgust. “Why does he have snot coming out of his nose?”
Annoyance. “Yes, Laura, I know he’s a baby but I don’t understand why I need to come see him.”
Exasperation. “What do you mean I’m going to marry him?”
Irritation. “Who made that stupid rule?”
“Derek Hale! What have I said about using those words?” Derek immediately froze and turned around, his shoulders hunched up around his ears.
“I’m sorry, Mama,” Derek said softly.
Laura giggled from next to the crib and pushed her finger against the baby’s smushed cheek. She started cooing to it and telling it how sorry she was that he had to be married to her ugly, rude baby brother.
“Laura Hale, this is not helping,” their mother scolded her. “This marriage contract between Derek and Prince Mateusz is very important to the safety of our countries.”
Derek looked confused again. “Prince what? I can’t say that name.”
“Queen Claudia says they’re going to call him Stiles as a nickname, but Mateusz was his grandfather’s name,” Talia explained to them. She pulled Derek away from the squalling baby and knelt down until she was face to face with him.
“You’ll have a long time to get to know him, Derek. Your father and I will not force you into this marriage if you do not want it when the time comes. But please try, for the sake of our country.”
Derek sighed, a big gush of wind leaving his lungs as he looked over at the baby prince once more.
“I’ll try. I just wish he would stop crying.”
