    Summary

    “Oh,” Stiles said, his voice coming out low and breathy, “fuck me.”

    “I don’t think that’s on the syllabus, but we can check to see if there’s a spot open in any of his classes,” Scott said, grinning.

    “This isn’t an actual professor, though,” Stiles insisted, unable to resist brushing his thumb over the sharp line of the man’s bearded jaw. He was laughing at something off-camera, the shot taken in three-quarters view, his coat collar casually rumpled and opened to reveal a sliver of a simple grey t-shirt. The whole thing was deliberately calculated to lend him a more accessible feel, and god help him, Stiles was falling for it.

    *

    When Stiles signed up for Dr. Hale’s intro to history class, he had two goals: knock out the credits his advisor was bugging him to complete before he graduated, and spend a few hours a week daydreaming about his sexy professor’s salt and pepper beard.

    Derek, a few months away from turning forty and not sure when his life had started feeling so damn lonely, had never encountered someone like Stiles before. Bright-eyed, sharp-tongued, determined to throw Derek’s carefully cultivated world into disarray…and absolutely the last person Derek should be falling in love with.

    Summary

    Stiles shifted again, then, and released a long breath. He seemed relieved to have gotten out the worst of it. “And, I'm having a really shitty week, actually. And I don't like myself a lot right now. This week or this year or, um, maybe in this phase of life...”

    and, and, and, Derek chanted in his head. And, and, and, he wished wildly...

    “...and if I'm giving you an insanely wide berth it's because you're gorgeous and good and smart and I'm trying really hard to be honest about how hard it is for me to just... be me. With me. Without anyone else. And that's why I can't hang out and I can't chit-chat when I run into you and that's why I, um, ran away from you. Multiple times.” Stiles exhaled loud and long. “In public.”

    Derek allowed himself a smile at the fireworks exploding overhead.

    “Sorry about that,” Stiles added softly, sounding regretful.

    ----

    In which Stiles and Derek work on their shit.
