Title: Stumbling in the Dark
Pairing: Pre-slash Sterek
Notes: I dunno what I was talking bout when I got this mental image of human!Derek stumbling around in the dark bumping into shit and I was laughing so hard like oh man poor Derek having to deal with human senses what a fucking bummer man. Wait. I need to write this.
Stiles jerked out of his sleep, eyes flying open when he heard a loud thump outside his window. His body sat up like a shot thanks to the adrenaline that flooded his system. 'What the hell was that?' he wondered with his heart in his throat. Had something crashed into his window? Was it a burglar or worse?
He could hear a voice.
After pulling his bat out from under the bed, Stiles carefully crept up to his window, ready for anything. Only, there was more cursing, a strange clinking noise followed by another thump. ‘The hell?’ Stiles wondered, taking a careful peek out his window.
He gawked at the sight of Derek Hale pushing himself off the ground and onto his feet, dusting his butt and thighs. The man paused mid-glare when he saw Stiles and gestured angrily at the window.
Stiles dropped his bat and pushed the window open, “The hell dude?” He hissed. “It’s the middle of the fucking night!”
"Your phone was turned off!" Derek retorted hotly.
"So you decided to come here and wake me up?" Stiles asked in return, frowning a moment as something hit him. "Wait. You usually come up and knock on my window. Why didn’t you do that?"
It was too dark to make out but the awkward silence that followed gave Stiles the feeling that Derek was embarrassed. “I couldnt… ” Derek jerkily gestured at the shingled roof right under Stiles’ window. He couldn’t what? Wait. Oh. Oooooh.
