“Come on,” Stiles said. “You know you’re genetically predisposed to find me irresistible.”
“I hear scientists are making excellent progress with gene therapy,” Derek said, raising an eyebrow.
“Oh, please,” Stiles said, waving his hand sarcastically. “Scientists can’t do shit about this.” He gestured between them with his finger. “We’re virtually soulmates, and you know it.”
“Virtually,” Derek whispered to himself, giant smile spreading across his entire face.
The next two hours passed with Stiles winding lights around the branches of the tree in the corner and then asking Derek to fix it when he inevitably got tangled after each branch. Derek happily obliged, helping each time with a smile.

“Derek was just helping me get the Christmas decorations out of the attic,” John said.
“And like I said,” Derek said quickly. “This is the last box, so I’m just gonna--” He pointed to the door, grabbed his jacket off of the couch, and ran outside.
