Stiles and Derek stood outside Scott's house holding each other's hands. Stiles was the one having a hard time actually stepping inside, and Derek pulled him forward with his usual determination.
"It's time, Stiles. We won't keep beating around the bush any longer"
"Fine, fine... I'm just nervous."
"They are our pack. They'll understand" Derek reassured him, and so they entered through the main door.
They were all waiting there: Scott, Lydia, Malia, and Liam. Derek had asked them all to gather, as he had an important announcement to make.
"Finally!" Lydia said when they entered "We have been waiting forever."
"We got here as soon as we could" Derek replied, giving Stiles a little look. They were tardy because of his constant worries, after all.
He was here, though, standing by his side, and that was all that mattered.
"So what is this about?" Scott asked, leaning forward with curiosity.
"Well..." Stiles began speaking after Derek gave him a meaningful look. "We needed to tell you something. Derek and I... We are kind of dating"
"Kind of?" Derek hissed, and Stiles smiled sheepishly.
"We are dating" He corrected himself, and Derek squeezed his hand warmly.
"Well, duh!" Lydia chuckled, shaking her head in disbelief those two thought it wasn't obvious already.
"We sort of already know..." Scott shrugged, making Stiles groan.
"So I've been stressing over nothing?!"
"I told you so" Derek chuckled, wrapping his arm around his boyfriend.
"So is that all?" Malia asked, chuckling in amusement.
"Yes, basically" Derek replied with his usual to-the-point attitude.
"Well, since you two finally admitted the obvious, why don't we go out to lunch and celebrate?" Scott suggested, standing up, and being followed by the rest of his pack.
"That sounds great!" Stiles yelped, incredibly relieved the hiding and sneaking around was finally over with.
