Derek bites Stiles to save his life but the bite doesn’t take as expected.
He’s lost a lot of blood. He knows that, like he knows water is wet and the sky is blue. There’s nothing he can do about it but try in vain to stop the continued flow.
He’s dizzy. Weak. Stumbling.
The rain is wet on his face. It soaks through his clothes, making them heavy, another weight dragging him down, trying to force him to the dirty concrete.
He doesn’t know where he’s going, just that he has to keep moving.
There was somewhere he was going. There was somewhere he needed to go.
Stiles stumbles. He’s kept from falling by the help of a brick wall.
