Stiles growled lowly and cowered away from Derek.
“It’s okay, Stiles, you’re not gonna hurt me.” Derek sat down on the floor in front of him. “You’re not. I know you’re struggling, but you’re gonna be the best wolf in the whole galaxy, just give it a little time, you’ll see.”
Stiles lowered himself to the floor and whined softly as he crawled closer to Derek, who smiled encouragingly at him.
“There you go, it’s gonna be fine, I promise, we’ll figure this out together,” Derek said softly and Stiles finally pressed his head against him, letting Derek hold him.
