multiamory may 32/? –> derek/jordan/paige
the three of them were high school sweethearts with all the cliche feelings and firsts that come along with it. it was mostly a secret, of course - paige’s parents knew about jordan, but not derek. jordan’s parents knew about derek, but not paige. and of course, derek tried to keep any hint of either of them away from his nosy family members, other than peter, which turned out to be the worst slip-up of all.
after they lost paige, derek and jordan’s lives diverged without even so much as a real breakup. it feels like lifetimes have passed since they last saw each other when jordan turns up in beacon hills again, military service under his belt and deputy’s uniform looking unfairly good on him. when they each begin catching glimpses of their dead girlfriend around town, they both brush it off - old memories stirred up by this town, by seeing one another again.
paige doesn’t let herself go ignored for long, though. when you’ve been a ghost for most of a decade and you finally, finally start to catch people’s eyes and even occasionally can touch things, you aren’t going to let the energy feeding you go anywhere. paige has to pull her boys back together if she wants a proper afterlife. she’s smart enough for what either of them can throw at her - derek’s trust issues, jordan’s near-death (or death?) experience that has left him with some scary new abilities and a strange, stern second personality? she’s got this handled, even if she doesn’t always have a voice or a physical form.
