    Summary

    “Stiles, I’m serious, I need a favour.”

    “That sounds like a trap,” Stiles Stilinski muttered sleepily into both his pillows. “You know,” he continued when the man in his room made no move to leave, “you’d think I’d be used to this. My dad, coming into my room, smacking my ass to get me out of bed, waking me up at the ass crack of dawn—”

    “It’s almost one.”

    “—waking me up at the ass crack of one,” Stiles continued without missing a beat, “and asking for a favour. Given my life growing up with you, you’d think I’d be used to this by now. I think the reason this hits so hard now is that I specifically bought my own apartment so that you couldn’t wake me up at the ass crack of dawn—”

    “Stiles, it’s almost one.”

    “—so that you couldn’t wake me up at the ass crack of one.”

    Summary

    It took only three days for Derek to decide he had to go home. He couldn’t stay in New York. He had to head out and find Stiles. He knew it was insane, that it would take him days, weeks to get to Beacon Hills, but he didn’t think about that. He just found some paper and started making a list of what he needed.

    One of his neighbours broke in while he was getting ready to leave. They came at him with a knife, intent on scaring him off so they could take what they needed. He insisted he was leaving and they could grab whatever once he was gone. It wasn’t good enough, because they were terrified and desperate. He didn’t think the guy had ever hurt anyone before—his name was Jerry, he worked in a bank, and was generally a nice person—but he seemed crazy enough not to worry about it this time.

    He swung the knife. Derek caught it in his hand, stared Jerry down, and flashed blue eyes at him. Jerry had run, but Derek knew he’d be back with more people. He’d come back insisting Derek in apartment seventeen was one of those monsters they’d been hearing about. He needed to get out.

    Summary

    That morning turned out to be interesting, as well, because there was a drunk guy passed out in one of the seats, and three stops after Derek had gotten on, a police officer came onto the subway and he and the drunk guy had an argument. The train hadn’t left the station yet and the whole system was on hold because of it.

    Derek would’ve been annoyed, because it was messing with his schedule, but cute subway guy was making up for the delay because he kept making faces at Derek, mimicking the conversation happening. Derek actually laughed a little too loudly at one point, and it had the cop turn to shoot him a scathing look.

    Summary

    Someone was saying his name, but it sounded like they were speaking to him from underwater. His brain felt foggy, there were hands on his shoulders, and the voice was getting louder. Derek forced his eyes open, everything blurry and faces hovering over him.

    “Derek,” one of them said urgently, and he winced when a flashlight was being shined in his eyes. “Derek, can you hear me?”

    “Is he okay?” Another voice asked from out of sight, everything still sounding muffled. “Did I get him out? Is he okay?”

    “Stiles, you need to stay down, it took a toll,” another voice insisted.

    “Is Derek okay?!” Stiles demanded urgently, his voice coming clearer now, some of the fog dissipating. “Deaton!”

    Summary

    “Who needed you?” Stiles asked, uncapping his water.

    “Hm?” Cole had been looking out at something in the field, and he focussed back on Stiles then. “What?”

    “You said it comes about when someone needs us. Who needed you?”

    He probably shouldn’t have asked, because Cole looked sad all of a sudden. Like he hadn’t thought about becoming a Sorcerer in a long time. Stiles could see that being what he was had cost him greatly, and he couldn’t help but wonder if he was going to run into the same problem.

    “A friend,” Cole said quietly. “Someone who was very dear to me. But I didn’t get there fast enough.”

    Stiles paused in recapping his water, pressing his lips together. “What happened?”

    “I waited too long to help them.”
