"I feel like I’m good with girls. I understand them and am good at loving them. I’ve always felt like that’s been natural for me."
Look how thoroughly unimpressed Deputy Parrish and Derek Hale are with Argent’s excuse. So unimpressed, ladies and gentlemen.
This gifset makes me want a background story where Deputy Parrish and Derek were best friends as children. Maybe as inseparable as Scott and Stiles. Well, at least, before the Hale House fire anyways.
A background story that shows Deputy Parrish’s knowledge of werewolves happening because of Derek’s overwhelming need to protect his friend. One day some kids were bullying Parrish in the locker room because he was a small, gangling mess of limbs as a teenage— and Derek came to his best friend’s rescue. Just throwing these ridiculous teenage bullies into the walls with his superhuman strength. And when Derek turns to check on Parrish his eyes are flashing gold and you can see the tips of his teeth poking out from under his lips. But the sight doesn’t frighten Parrish, it just explains why the Hale’s never inviting him on their camping adventures once a month. It actually explains a lot of things, especially why the Hale’s are so secretive.
And after the Hale Fire happened, before Laura and Derek left for New York, Derek came to see Parrish one last time. Derek tells his best friend that there is no need to worry about the Argent’s wrecking havoc in Beacon Hills anymore. That he and Laura are leaving, but won’t say where. He tells Parrish that he will always be pack to Derek, but to never let anyone know that he ever had any connection to the Hale family.
Parrish has kept the Hale Family secret for over half his life by the time he sees Derek again. And he won’t let it show that he knows Derek from a past life to this Argent standing in front of him. But he’ll be damned if he let’s another Argent hurt Derek.

This makes me sick to my stomach. I’ve known so many people like this. To borrow a quote from Ron Weasley, “She needs to sort out her priorities.”
