You’ll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.
Justyna Neryng, Childhood Lost
The first time Derek notices, is when he’s hiding in Stiles’ room, hiding from the law that happens to be Stiles’ dad, something doesn’t smell right, or more accurately something is missing from the smell of a teenage boy’s room.
He doesn’t say anything, just lets it go, but it sits there idly in the back of his mind.
After that he starts to take more notice, not only of the boy, but how the boy is slightly different, slightly not what he’s expecting, and that smell is still missing.
