2 Works in We Heart Peter 2018
The Hale territory has spread wider than Stiles, Peter, or Derek ever anticipated, and they are all willing to take great pains to protect it. Desperate times call for desperate measures, but it's nice when they coincide with hidden desires of the heart, of the flesh, and of their magic itself.
The first time Derek is overly fussy and Talia can't calm him, she gives up and shoves him into Peter's arms. The baby quiets. He looks up into Peter's face, clear eyes assessing, and seems suddenly content. And the anger, the bitterness in Peter ebbs away, while something else rears up and makes itself known. Warmth fills Peter's chest and he never wants to let go of it. Never wants to let go of Derek.
Peter leans down and kisses Derek's forehead the way he's seen Talia do. "You're mine," he whispers, so quiet no one else can hear.
