    Summary

    "You say the Warhorse showed up last night," Sam said in tones of profound doubt.

    "Yeah," Steve replied.

    "The Warhorse. The Warhorse of legend. Daelland's Warhorse."

    "The same as the one on the back of the transit card, yes."

    "And he appeared in your living room?"

    Steve eyed the Warhorse, very large and very black and giving him a dubious look out of his strange grey eyes. "He's standing in it right now."

    "Uh huh," Sam said.

    "Hey, I'm not any happier about it than you are."

    Steve's mom had left Daelland long before he was born, following her heart to New York, but she'd raised him on stories of its famous Warhorse. Before she died, he'd promised he'd go back and learn the country she'd come from.

    That was why he was in Daelland. Not so Daelland's legendary Warhorse could appear in his living room. But planned or not that's what had happened—now Steve had to figure out what to do about it.

    Summary

    “Who is this? Where’s Erica?”

    “Wrong number, asshole!”

    “Stop calling me an asshole,” the man on the other end snapped aggressively.

    Stiles could understand. He’d be pretty aggressive too if he’d murdered someone and texted a wrong number to ask for help burying the body. This guy obviously failed How To Be a Serial Killer 101.

    “What kind of idiot thinks I murdered someone?”

    “The kind of idiot who got your text messages, you fucking dumbass!” he retorted hotly. “Maybe double check your contacts before sending a random stranger details on your nefarious plans to dispose of a freshly cut up body!”

    “What?!” the guy on the other end demanded, crossed between horrendously confused and livid.

    Summary

    “Well,” Stiles says, “if they’re going to hunt werewolves, I’m going to hunt them.”

    It’s a ridiculous statement from a ten-year-old, but he’s obviously one hundred percent sincere. For the first time since the fire, Peter feels life stir inside him, feels purpose. It’s kismet, clearly. He’ll never meet the child he would have had with Olivia. Instead he’s met this boy, this brilliant, determined, cynical child with a world of potential.

    Peter kneels down in front of him so they’re at eye level. “How do you feel about doing that together?”

    Summary

    “What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”

    “What’s yours?”

    “Stiles.”

    Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.

    “Lie.”

    “Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”

    Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”

    Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”

    Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.
