Warnings/Contains: Major Character Death
Notes: This week's challenge at mating_games supplied us with several pictures for inspiration. I started writing this story at the beginning of the week, but was then bowled over with another idea that consumed me and I submitted that second piece instead. I discovered the start of this last night and decided to finish it and post it as an extra. As always, I do not own the characters or world of Teen Wolf; I just like to write about them.
Summary: They had five years together, and as good as the memories are, they still tug brutally at Derek's heart in the dark hours of the night.
