Derek really shouldn’t be surprised: Oliver shrank back at the sound of Derek’s voice, his eyes snapped open, wild, searching, until they finally located the gun Derek secured and left on the table earlier. Derek sighed dejectedly.
“You don't need that. I told you I wouldn't hurt you and I won't.”
Oliver might not trust him immediately at Derek’s reassurance, but he did take his eyes off Derek to check his surroundings, noting the steamy drink on the table and the lit fireplace that filled the room with cozy warmth. When Oliver's gaze was back at him again, Derek smiled. That gaze was still hard and cold, though, and that Derek swore he would remedy in no time.
