I woke up later that night by my phone ringing. I rolled over, looked at the screen, and was shocked to see that it was Mr. Argent. I slowly and quietly got out of my bed, and stepped out into the hall. I didn’t want to wake Derek, and I knew that he needed all the rest that he could get.

“Is everything ok Mr. Argent?” I asked quietly as I answered my phone.

“I don’t know Zaira, but you need to get here quick.” Mr. Argent replied, which made me a little worried.

“Why? What’s going on?” I asked.

“It’s Isaac.” was all that Mr. Argent had to say because I was on my way over there a split second after he said Isaac’s name.

I got to the apartment complex and was standing outside the Argent’s door, and when I was about to knock, Mr. Argent opened the door and let me in. I ran straight to where Allison was beating on the door, and I could hear Isaac screaming. I started beating on the door as well, and we finally got in, only to find Isaac on the floor, ice cold. Mr. Argent started to hit Isaac to get him to turn, and when he did, he jumped and slammed against the foot board of the bed.

“Did you see them?” Isaac asked as tears fell down his face.

“Who?” Allison asked quietly.

“There were five of them. They wore black. I couldn’t… I couldn’t see their faces. They were covered.” Isaac replied as more tears fell down his face.

“What do you mean? Like masks?” Allison asked as I scooted closer to Isaac.

I guess he knew that it was me because he hugged me tight, but continued to talk to Allison and her dad.

“One of them… I could see his eyes. They were greenish-yellow. Like a… Like a firefly.” Isaac replied as he held onto me.

“Security system wasn’t triggered.” Mr. Argent said as he got up to check the windows.

“Then how did they get in?” Allison asked, and I was asking the same thing.

“They didn’t. It’s like they came out of the shadows.” Isaac replied.

“Do you know what that means? Dad?” Allison asked as she looked at her father.

“Um… I’m not sure. Listen, the three of you… I need you to keep this quiet for a few hours.” Mr. Argent said as he looked at all three of us.

“From everyone?” Isaac asked while sniffling.

“Just 24 hours.” Mr. Argent replied.

“They could’ve killed him, dad.” Allison whispered to her dad as she looked up at him.

“But they didn’t. And I think there’s a reason why. I think they might have been after me.” Mr. Argent said before he left the room.

Allison, Isaac, and I looked at each other before looking back at the door. I hugged Isaac again before trying to get up, but that was hard, considering I had a Beta clinging to me.

“Isaac, I have to get home sweetie.” I spoke to him softly.

“Please Zaira, I… I don’t want to be alone.” Isaac replied as he clung to me.

“You won’t be alone. You have Allison and Mr. Argent here, and I’m just a phone call away.” I told him as I rubbed his back.

After a few minutes, Isaac finally calmed down, and I went home. When I got home, Derek was still asleep, and I was thankful for that. He’s been through so much, and with tomorrow being Halloween, it should be interesting. I finally got settled in my bed, when Derek pulled me to him.

“Where were you?” Derek asked softly as he looked at me.

“Chris called me about Isaac, so I went to check on him.” I replied as I snuggled into Derek.

“Is everything ok?” Derek asked, and I knew that he was worried about his Beta.

“He says that he saw something, but Allison, Chris, and I didn’t see anything. He was really shaken up about it, and he was ice cold when we got to him. I’m worried about him, Derek.” I whispered as I looked at Derek.

“Everything will be fine, Zaira. With you as his Alpha, along with Scott, he’ll get through this.” Derek said as he kissed the top of my head.

I snuggled more into Derek, and listened to his heartbeat. I didn’t want to tell Derek that Chris probably knew the things that attacked Isaac because I knew that Derek would go after him. I also knew that Derek was right, and that Isaac would be fine because with Scott and me as his Alpha’s, he wouldn’t be alone, ever again. I finally fell asleep, and when I finally woke up, I saw that most of the day was gone. I also noticed that I was alone, but Derek left me a text and told me that he would pick me up later on tonight. I got up, got dressed, and decided to clean up around the house. It took me longer than I thought because before I knew it, Derek was at my house, and we were on our way back to his loft.

When we got out of his car, I noticed that Derek had this look on his face. It’s the look that tells me that someone or something is behind him. He turned around, and I saw kids standing behind him. I tried my hardest not to laugh, but I couldn’t stop the giggle that came out. Derek reached into the car and pulled out a bag of candy. He gave some to each kid, and I thought it was cute. Before either of us could say a word, we heard a noise. We both turned around and saw these knight-looking creatures behind us. We fought them as good as we could, but they overpowered us, and did something to us. I don’t really remember much, but I do know that Derek told me that I had what looked like a backwards 5 behind my ear.

I followed Derek as we went into his loft. We saw that there was a party going on, and I wasn’t too happy that I missed it, but then again, I’m glad I did. Derek flipped over the DJ table, and yelled, “Get out!” I watched as everyone ran out, and was shocked that those creatures were back, and that they were looking at one of the twins. A fight broke out, and I helped as much as I could.

“What the hell were those things?” Scott asked as the creatures faded away with the sunlight.

Nobody said a word, but I did hear Isaac say, “Your dad’s 24 hours are up.” to Allison. I knew what he meant, but I knew that I wanted Allison to tell everyone.
