"Uh, yeah. Yvette, knock on the door and I'll be there in a minute. I need to talk to Stiles."

Permalink

"Right. Okay. Good night, Stiles, thank you for the ride." But not the commentary.

Out she gets, and to the door she walks.

She hesitates (What will she say?) and then knocks.

Permalink

"Hi! You must be Scott's friend. Come on, sit down. Do you want something, water, coffee, anything?"

Permalink

"Hi," she says, smiling gratefully. Look! An adult! Not an angsty teenager! She is so relieved. "Thank you so much. I, um, just water please?"

In she goes, to sit down. Excellent. Parenting. She needs to be parented at right now.

Permalink

"Would you tell me about yourself? All I know is that you're looking for somewhere to stay."

She hands Yvette a glass of water. 

"Scott didn't explain much over the phone. I swear, that boy- I don't know where his kindness comes from, but he's as tight-lipped his dad."

Permalink

Little smile.

"I'm Yvette, I'm, uh. From Pennsylvania. It's nice to meet you." She sounds so incredibly inane, why does she sound so inane. "I nagged Scott into deciding to explain more things to you, actually."

Permalink

"I think I probably appreciate that very much."

She glances at the door. 

"What's keeping him?"

Permalink

"He's talking with Stiles about... something. I'm not sure what." Maybe Stiles is getting yelled at for being excessively rude, that would be wonderful.

Permalink

Scott comes in, slamming the door. 

He startles slightly, glancing at it.

"Hey mom, Yvette. Sorry about the delay."

Permalink

"It's okay," says Yvette. Do not say 'Did you yell at Stiles,' that is not helpful. "Your mom's really nice, I like her."

Permalink

"Hear that? She thinks I'm cool."

Permalink

"Yeah, I heard her."

He sits down.

"Yvette, did you want anything to eat?"

Permalink

"No, I'm all right. Thank you though." Pause. "... Should I go, I don't know. Watch TV while you talk with your mom?"

Permalink

"If you'll be more comfortable, yeah."

Permalink

"Mom, there's something I've been keeping from you. Since late fall."

Permalink

Yvette thinks she needs to hear this too, but uh. She will give them some privacy, it's kind of a family thing. Up she gets, with a reassuring smile to Scott's mom.

She finds a television and turns it on and is briefly delighted at how the SciFi channel does not have the stupid name! Aaaaaaa she is so excited, this was the best idea ever. In honor of this, she will watch the SciFi channel. Not Syfy yaaaaay!

Permalink

The conversation in the kitchen is hushed.

Permalink

Until it isn't. 

"Scott, how many lies have you told me the past few months? Where did this girl even come from?" 

Permalink

Nnnnngh she is so sorry, Scott's cool mom.

Focus on the bad science fiction, it will be okay. Probably. She turns up the volume a tad, but doesn't expect it to help.

Permalink

She can't hear whatever Scott says in response.

Permalink

"Of course not, you're still my son. Who else would take care of you, your father?"

Permalink

"I just need some time to think." 

Permalink

See, look. Moms: if they're good ones, they get it.

Also lalalala SciFi channel lalalala.

Permalink

Melissa walks in.

"Hey, sorry to interrupt. Just wanted to know if you want Scott's bed or mine."

Permalink

Television can go off now. She was not invested.

"I'll be fine with the couch," she assures. "Really, it's fine, I don't want to turn either of you out of your beds."
