Derek I Stiles


March 18th

[Sat 9:54pm]

Out of Red Bull. Going to the store, want anything?

[Sat 9:56pm]

Actually yes, can you see if they have more of those baked chips you bought last week?

[Sat 9:59pm]

Baked chips?

[Sat 10:00pm]

When did I buy baked chips Laura?

[Sat 10:03pm]

I think you texted the wrong number dude.

[Sat 10:06pm]

Shit, I did. Sorry.

[Sat 10:17pm]

It's cool. I needed to do something anyway.

[Sat 10:19pm]

So I'm a diversion?

[Sat 10:20pm]

I wouldn't say a diversion per se, more like a chance to broaden my horizons and talk to someone outside of my circle of friends. Although given the circumstances, this might sound a bit weird.

[Sat 10:22pm]

Uh huh.

[Sat 10:24pm]

Yup.

[Sat 10:25pm]

Do you do this with everyone that texts you at random?

[Sat 10:27pm]

No. Not really. Only to those that text back and keep on texting.

[Sat 10:28pm]

Like you good sir.

[Sat 10:29pm]

Stiles.

[Sat 10:30pm]

?

[Sat 10:31pm]

Stiles that's my name.

[Sat 10:33pm]

What kind of name is Stiles?

[Sat 10:34pm]

Well, I don't' know, that kind of name that is my name?

[Sat 10:35pm]

It's a nickname, but that's what I go by nowadays.

[Sat 10:37pm]

Ah, well, I'm Derek.

[Sat 10:41pm]

Derek, huh? So how's that trip to get Red Bull going?

[Sat 10:42pm]

By the way, you should know that those are bad for you.

[Sat 10:44pm]

I know, but I need the energy boost. And I'm on my way back to my bus now.

[Sat 10:46pm]

You have a bus?

[Sat 10:47pm]

Are you a groupie?

[Sat 10:48pm]

Nope.

[Sat 10:49pm]

Road trip?

[Sat 10:50pm]

In a way.

[Sat 10:52pm]

Okay I give up will you just tell me?

[Sat 10:54pm]

It's the least you can do for not getting me my baked chips.

[Sat 10:55pm]

I made no promises to get you your chips.

[Sat 10:57pm]

And I'm in a band.

[Sat 10:59pm]

Oh god, please don't tell me I'm talking to Derek Grant.

[Sat 11:00pm]

Allison would die if she knew I'm talking to a member of Alkaline Trio.

[Sat 11:01pm]

What? No.

[Sat 11:02pm]

Oh. Okay, so you're not Derek Grant?

[Sat 11:04pm]

Nope. Sorry to burst your bubble.

[Sat 11:05pm]

It's cool.

[Sat 11:07pm]

So what's your band's name?

[Sat 11:09pm]

Not telling.

[Sat 11:10pm]

What? Come on tell me.

[Sat 11:11pm]

That's not how this works, I tell you something about me and you tell me something about you.

[Sat 11:12pm]

So go on.

[Sat 11:14pm]

Well what do you wanna know?

[Sat 11:15pm]

I don't know. I'm in a band. What do you do?

[Sat 11:17pm]

I'm a sous-chef.

[Sat 11:18pm]

Fancy.

[Sat 11:19pm]

And here I thought you were a wanted criminal.

[Sat 11:20pm]

Okay your turn.

[Sat 11:21pm]

Rude, just letting you know.

[Sat 11:22pm]

Can I ask what your band's name is?

[Sat 11:24pm]

No.

[Sat 11:25pm]

Why not?

[Sat 11:26pm]

Because you would google it and that would be creepy.

[Sat 11:27pm]

You'd know what I look like and everything.

[Sat 11:29pm]

Ugh. Fine. Favorite food?

[Sat 11:31pm]

Cheetos.

[Sat 11:32pm]

That is so fucking helpful dude.

[Sat 11:32pm]

Shut up.

[Sat 11:33pm]

There are a bunch of Cheetos. Pick a damn flavor.

[Sat 11:34pm]

I'm gonna go ahead and say that you like the flaming hot.

[Sat 11:36pm]

They're okay. Not my favorites, but I guess.

[Sat 11:56pm]

Hello?

[Sun 12:05am]

Okay then.


March 19th

[Sun 12:10pm]

Hey my bad about last night I fell asleep.

[Sun 12:11pm]

Its fine just thought that you got bored of this.

[Sun 12:13pm]

Well I regret to inform you that I don't get bored that easily.

[Sun 12:15pm]

Damn, I'll just have to try harder next time to be boring.

[Sun 12:16pm]

So is this like a game now?

[Sun 12:18pm]

Yes. Yes, it is.

[Sun 12:20pm]

Well you're gonna lose, just sayin'.

[Sun 12:21pm]

No I'm not I'm gonna win.

[Sun 12:24pm]

Dream on Derek. Dream on.


March 23rd

[Thurs 1:10am]

So I'm making pancakes.

[Thurs 1:11am]

Thanks for the update.

[Thurs 1:13am]

Do you want one?

[Thurs 1:15am]

How the hell are you going to send me pancakes?

[Thurs 1:17am]

I don't know…

[Thurs 1:18am]

Magic!

[Thurs 1:20am]

Hold on a minute, you said you were a sous-chef. Why are you making pancakes? Can't you like make something, I don't know, fancier?

[Thurs 1:22am]

Pancakes are heavenly at this hour that's why.

[Thurs 1:23am]

And why would I whip up something 'fancy' this late at night?

[Thurs 1:25am]

I wish you can see this stack.

[Thurs 1:26am]

It's fucking glorious. *man tear*

[Thurs 1:28am]

Now I'm hungry.

[Thurs 1:30am]

Yes! My plan was a success!

[Thurs 1:36am]

I found a bag of Doritos.

[Thurs 1:37am]

What now?

[Thurs 1:38am]

:(

[Thurs 1:40am]

Sweet victory.

[Thurs 1:41am]

Don't matter, I have more of those baked chips.

[Thurs 1:42am]

So screw you and your Doritos.

[Thurs 1:43am]

:D

[Thurs 1:44am]

You've just insulted my Doritos. Prepare to die.

[Thurs 1:46am]

I'm too young to die.

[Thurs 1:47am]

I haven't even finished my pancakes yet!

[Thurs 1:49am]

Then apologize.

[Thurs 1:50am]

No.

[Thurs 1:53am]

Do it. You hurt my chip's feelings.

[Thurs 1:56am]

It's a bag of nachos. IT DOESN'T HAVE FEELINGS.

[Thurs 1:58am]

You never know.

[Thurs 2:01am]

It's too late to get into this with you.

[Thurs 2:03am]

It doesn't matter. I finished the bag already.

[Thurs 2:05am]

I'm not even done with my stack.

[Thurs 2:06am]

Wow, you're a slow eater.

[Thurs 2:07am]

Shut up.

[Thurs 2:09am]

I love to savor my food, thank you very much.

[Thurs 2:11am]

Sure you do.

[Thurs 2:13am]

It's too late to get into this with you.

[Thurs 2:17am]

I don't know why people say pancakes taste better with syrup. All it does is just make it all sugary and sticky and just ugh.

[Thurs 2:19am]

How could you even say that?

[Thurs 2:21am]

You're dead to me Stiles.

[Thurs 2:23am]

I'm just saying the truth!

[Thurs 2:24am]

And you barely know me.

[Thurs 2:34am]

Really Derek?
