Derek I Stiles
All right, now I have a question for you.
Okay. What is it?
I mean, why did you choose the nickname 'Stiles'.
You could have gone for something, I don't know, normal?
…you really wanna know this?
You may not see it but I have my serious face on.
Ha! Serious face. Right.
And, well, because Stiles is a lot easier to say than my real name.
And that is?
Since you're so interested.
Why don't you just go by Gen or Genie?
Okay. One, Gen sounds like an old man's name, and two, GENIE REALLY?
I can't tell if you're kidding or not.
But now that you put it that way…Stiles isn't so bad.
And it has style. Haha get it?
You're so funny.
Shut up. I'm hilarious.
And don't worry Genie I'll keep on calling you Stiles.
I hate you.
This friendship is over.
Okay I know you don't mean that.
You're right, I don't mean it.
But I do hate you a little bit.
Uh huh. Sure you do.
How do you even say it anyway?
Ah. So it's not Gee-nim?
The fuck? No.
Hey, just making sure.
This conversation ends here. We will never speak of this again.
Help me! Allison is dragging me to family dinner!
How am I supposed to help? I'm stuck in Texas.
Also, who's Allison?
I don't know how you're gonna help me but you need to.
And Allison is one of my best friends.
You can say she's the Black Widow to my Hawkeye.
So if you don't want to go then fake being sick?
Wish that would work.
It doesn't work with my dad or Allison
Well, you're fucked.
So why don't you want to go?
Well, for one, my uncles are all going to be there and I know that they'll pester me about being single again.
Not that I don't love them, I do. They're awesome. Just that their wives are bitches sometimes.
Except Halyn, my uncle Logan's wife.
Actually, they're both awesome.
This is the first time you talk about your family.
We're a crazy lot. That also includes Allison's family. We invite them over one time, and now they're part of the family.
What about you? What's your family like?
It's kind of complicated.
Do you want to talk about it?
It's sort of a long story.
I got time. 2 hours actually. So I have time to spend.
Well to sum it all up, my parents died in a car accident when I was 17. I started my band shortly after as an outlet. My uncle became my manager, and my sister is one of my guitarists.
That's pretty much it.
I feel bad now that I asked.
It's fine Stiles, really. I learned to live with it.
My mom died of cancer when I was really young. So I don't really remember her, but my dad says that I remind him of her.
I thought that it was only fair to tell you because you just gave me your life story in a nutshell.
This conversation took a heavy turn.
Sorry about that. Really.
Don't you have to get ready for that family dinner?
Yeah I should.
I don't know how I'm going to survive it.
You make a dinner sound so dramatic.
But good luck.
You survived the dinner and it wasn't as bad as you thought it'd be and you were being all overdramatic saying how you weren't going to survive it for nothing?
First of all, fuck you and your mind reading.
Second, remember my aunt and uncle I told you about?
Well they are planning a trip to New York and asked me if I wanted to go with them. And my 2 week vacation started as of yesterday.
Wait let me guess, you're going with them.
Bingo. It's actually going to be my first time in New York.
Shut up and let me enjoy my moment.
Let you enjoy a moment?
We can't have that Stiles. The world might implode.
You sir, are an asshole.
Why thank you Stiles.
You can't hear it but I'm hissing at you.
Well at my phone.
Really Stiles? I expected better from you.
No, but really. I'm fucking excited.
This really can't be your first trip to New York.
And before you say it, I KNOW. It's sad.
I wasn't going to say anything, but now that you mention it. Yes, I am judging you now.
What are you doing?
Well hello to you too Derek.
And I'm currently sitting at the airport with my aunt and uncle waiting for our flight.
Your trip is today?
What about you? What are you doing?
Sitting outside the bus.
Wow. Sounds like fun.
Oh yeah, real fun.
But no, this wouldn't be happening if Peter hadn't stank up the bus.
I can smell the burritos from last night even out here.
How long are you staying in New York?
A few days. Probably 4?
That's not a lot of time.
I know, but it's something. A change of scenery for 4 days isn't bad.
Hmm. If you say so.
We're actually taking a 2 day break. No shows till Wednesday.
What are you planning to do with your break?
I don't know.
Wow you weren't kidding when you said you had no friends.
Wait a minute! What about your bandmates? Aren't they your friends?
Not really. I mean, I talk to them but that's it. We aren't actually friends.
What about your sister and uncle?
They're family. I'm obligated to interact with them.
Yeah. I'm a lone wolf.
You lead a sad life sir.
Being a loner isn't a good thing.
I'm not really alone though.
I have you.
Stop it. You're making me blush.
Now my uncle is giving me a look.
Great now my aunt is asking questions. I blame you.
Haha just doing my job.
Yes! We can get on the plane! New York here I come!
Have fun Stiles.
