"What do you think? Tighten a few screws here, replace a belt there?"

Sterek AU: Stiles’ car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately for him he finds a lonely gas station manned by a ridiculously hot mechanic who might be able to help him. Not so fortunately for him, there’s a reason Derek Hale is lying low out here in careful obscurity. When the danger from Derek’s past catches up with him before the repairs are finished, Stiles finds himself sucked into the adventure of a lifetime. Thrown together in a struggle for survival, Stiles becomes increasingly drawn to his taciturn new companion while Derek discovers to his confused surprise that apparently not everyone in the world is willing to betray him just to save themselves.
