Rating: → M
Pairing/s: → Derek Hale/Braeden
Summary: → Could he take what she was offering?
Warnings: → None
Word Count: → 1099
Prompt:: → Prompt: #421: Passport @ tamingthemuse
Author's Notes: → Those scenes between Derek and Braeden in Season 4, Episode 8 wrote this story in my head—I liked seeing Derek content for once. This 'hopeful' piece of nothing is dedicated to theladymerlinwho has always been there for me, encouraging me to keep going and to Ronnie who reminded me every week how much closer I was to my goal and told me I could get there. Thank you both. This represents story 208 in my first tamingthemuse run which means I have written something every week for four years without a break. Hoo yeah!
