Sterek AU: Years after his family moved out from Beacon Hills, Derek Hale decides to come back to his home town. He renovates his old house and opens a car repair shop. (Suddenly, half of the population of Beacon Hills decides they need to have their cars repaired. At Hale’s repair shop, of course.)
It’s summer holidays. Stiles sees Derek for the first time when he and Scott drag their luggage across the Beacon Hills Bus Station parking lot. That’s the moment in which Stiles decides he is not going to take part in the whole “Hale insanity” phase. Stiles learnt his lesson about crushing on people way out of his league: don’t even bother, boy (thank you, Lydia Martin). His college hook-ups were easy after he accepted this.
So, in the grocery shop he snatches the last apricot juice from under Derek’s nose. Stiles is for equality and he thinks being handsome should not give you privileges (of buying the last apricot juice, for example. First come, first served). And when he’s having a problem with his Jeep he goes to the good old Armor. He’s doing just fine at ignoring Derek Hale’s existence. Things get difficult when for some mysterious reason, Derek decides to take an interest in Stiles.
