One day

Work Text:

“Dad bragged about you at dinner today.”

Derek raised his eyebrows. “What? Why?”

“He’s proud of you.” Stiles voice was soft, his heart steady, and Derek swallowed around the lump that had suddenly formed in his throat. “You’re good, handy, smart, strong.” Stiles smiled. “I agree with him, you know. You’re a good man.”

Derek cleared his throat. “I-, uhm.” He didn’t know he’d ever get used to the Stilinski men’s open and appreciating love that they so easily showed him. “Thanks.”

“One day,” Stiles said and cupped Derek’s jaws, “One day you’ll see it too, and I can’t wait.”
