It was hot it the gymnasium, like a lobster being boiled hot, but you needed to be there to support Derek.
It was his last basketball game of the season and you had attended all games prior to this one, even if he didn’t know it. He did. You just didn’t know it. He watched you between halves and dedicated every basket to you. It was an endless cycle which your mutual friends were sick of.
“Will you quit staring at him? Its like you think he’ll disappear into a hole in the ground if you look away” Stiles loudly said to you, drawing the attention of others.
“Shut up Stiles, he might hear you!” You quickly replied
Before you and Stiles could go any further Scott piped in, “He isn’t wrong though Y/n, we’ve been here nearly an hour and you haven’t looked away from him once!”
“Well im sorry, I can’t help that this intelligent, beautiful, stunning, athletic man is running around in shorts which may I add make his butt look amaz- is it me or did it just get even hotter in here?” You explained whilst tying your hair up into a simple yet cute ponytail.
Derek just happened to glance at you at that very moment, and boy was he glad he did.
Standing there mesmerised by your movements, he didn’t realise he was holding the game up.
Whispering to you, Stiles said, “I think your god is staring at you”
“What? No he isn’t, he doesn’t even know i exist!” You exclaimed.
“Just look over there!” Scott said pointing towards a figure in the middle of the court.
At that moment Derek’s eyes connected with yours and he nervously smiled at you. You returned his smile and waved. What you and Derek didn’t know was that, that was the start of a lovely friendship which later turns into the most beautiful relationship.
