16. Chapter 16
The next morning I woke up beside Stiles. I was glad that I didn't have to sleep alone last night. That I had someone to go to. Memories of last night flooded back to me as I watched him sleep peacefully. For a moment last night part of me wouldn't have minded Stiles kissing me but my dreams last night and my heart call for Isaac. I'll always feel this connection with Stiles but I know that I don't want anyone else but Isaac.
I get up quietly heading to my room to get ready for school. Though I wasn't to happy about it since Isaac is now back in school. I feel my heart sink slightly as I place my hand on my bandaged cheek. I know I'll have to talk to him today. I can't stay away from him forever and in all honesty I know I don't want to.
A part of me is still pissed at him and still frightened. Though mostly I just miss him.
A couple hours later Stiles came in suprised that I was ready early.
"So are you feeling better" He questioned leaning against my door and I nod in response.
"You should talk to him. I'm not exactly a fan of his but I know that he didn't mean to hurt you" Stiles says and I nod again.
"I plan to" I say and we make our way downstairs to his jeep.
When we get to school we join up with Scott discussing everything that happened last night. Trying to decide how to handle the Jackson kanima situation. After awhile they head to class and I tell them I'll meet them there heading to my locker.
As I turn down the hallway I feel myself being yanked into a classroom and the door slamming shut. I look around the empty classroom before my eyes landed on the person who had pulled me inside. Isaac stood in front of me his gaze on the floor as he messed with his sleeve. I wait for him to say something but he doesn't so I speak first.
"I'm sorry that I yelled at you yesterday. I was just scared" I whisper and he looks up at me shocked.
"I hurt you and your saying sorry because you yelled at me? You have no reason to be sorry Mackenzie" He says coming closer to me slightly though cautiously almost afraid that he'll scare me away.
"You didn't mean to Isaac" I say hating seeing the guilt and pain in his eyes.
"I know but I shouldn't have just attacked Stiles like that. I was just trying to follow Derek's orders but after I hurt you and you looked up at me in pain and fear I knew that I was wrong" He whispers bringing his hand up to my cheek I wince slightly as he pulls the bandage back from my cheek to look at it.
"I'm so sorry" He says his voice shaking slightly as he lowers gaze to the ground again. A tear slipping down his cheek. I reach my hand up wiping it away before pulling him to me in a hug. He grips onto me tightly as if I'll slip away.
"I forgive you Isaac" I say into his ear placing a kiss to his cheek.
I pull back slightly to look into his eyes and he does the same his eyes moving from my eyes to my lips like he'd done that day in my room a couple weeks ago. This time he didn't stop to ask. This time there was no interruption as he pressed his lips to mine.
