The drive from Mexico to Deaton’s was awkward. I felt so bad for Derek, and I was trying to figure out what the game plan was. I glanced over at Derek just to make sure that he was still breathing. I couldn’t believe that Kate did this to him, but I will protect him with my life. We finally got to Deaton’s and I watched as Scott carried Derek into the clinic. We let Deaton look at Derek, and he told us that he had no idea what was wrong with him. I figured that he didn’t but I was hoping that I was wrong. I just stood by Derek and held his hand.

“You guys need to go home. You have school in a few hours.” Deaton told the others.

“He’s right guys.” I told them because I knew that Stiles was going to argue.

Stiles looked at me, and saw that I was babying Derek. I couldn’t help it because I knew Derek at this age. I knew what he was going through. Kate just better stay out of my way, because I’m not holding back.

“Someone needs to stay with you, just in case.” Scott said as he looked at Deaton.

I guess Derek heard, because he gripped my hand. I gripped his hand back to calm his nerves. I knew that I had to stay with him, because I am the only one that he’ll listen to.

“I’ll stay with him.” I told the group.

Stiles went to argue, but Scott nudged him, and he kept quiet. The group finally left, except Lydia, because she decided to stay with me. We took turns watching over Derek, and we talked about everything. I guess we both dozed off because when I woke up, Deaton was checking on Derek. Not too long after that, Derek slowly sat up.

“Derek.” I whispered to him.

Derek didn’t say anything, but attacked Deaton and Lydia. I knew that he felt guilty because when he ran past me, he gave me a look. I didn’t know what to think, but I knew that I had to find him. I ran after him, and when I found him, the site wasn’t pretty. Derek was on his knees in front of what was left of his house. I placed my hand on his shoulder, and when he looked up at me, I had to cover my mouth because of the look on his face. I happened to notice a police truck pull up as well, and I wasn’t surprised to see Jordan and his partner, whose name escapes me, get out and head our way.

“Hey, dumbass. You ever hear of no trespassing?” Jordan’s partner asked as he looked between Derek and me.

“This is my house.” Derek told him.

I smirked at that because Derek gave him attitude, and I knew that I didn’t have to worry about a thing.

I tuned out the rest of their conversation, but I did notice that Jordan was being gentle with Derek. I did however hear Jordan call his partner, Haigh. I couldn’t believe that someone as sweet as Jordan was partnered with an ass like Haigh.

I was pulled from my thoughts when Haigh grabbed Derek’s arm. I was about to react, but Derek beat me to it by pulling away from Haigh and grabbing his arm, while adding just a little pressure. Jordan tried to diffuse the situation, but that changed when Haigh started to taze Derek. Jordan had to grab me because I was trying to get to Derek. We both ended up being taken to the station, and I had Derek in my arms.

“Are you alright?” I whispered to him.

“I’m fine.” Derek whimpered.

I knew that he was in pain, so I tried to take some of his pain away. It worked because Derek slowly relaxed.

“Thanks.” Derek whispered.

“No problem.” I whispered back.

When we got to the station, Haigh handcuffed Derek to the bench. He wanted to do the same to me, but Jordan stepped in. I sat next to Derek and glared at Haigh.

“I hope he sleeps with one eye open because I will get him back for this.” I growled under my breath.

I guess Derek heard me because he looked up at me, and gave me a grin. I was happy to see that grin because it made me smile. Jordan walked over to us, squatted down to Derek’s level, and started to talk.

“The other deputy thinks I’m an idiot for even asking, but I have a feeling if I take these cuffs off, you’re going to be okay? And I think you’ll help us figure out what happened to your family so that we can get you out of here. Am I right?” Jordan asked.

Derek just nodded his head, but I knew deep down that Derek started to trust Jordan because he was actually willing to help him out. I hope that Haigh takes notes, because this is how you treat kids. I then watched as Jordan uncuffed Derek.

“The other deputy’s the idiot.” Derek said, and I couldn’t contain the giggle that left my lips.

“I can’t argue with that.” Jordan said with a chuckle.

The giggles came back when my uncle came into the room, and kept looking between Derek and the computer. I knew that he was looking at a mug shot of older Derek, and the kid next to me was younger Derek. I think my uncle knew that this kid was Derek, but he didn’t want anyone to know that he knew.

My uncle then went into his office with Scott and Stiles, and I knew that everything was fixing to come out. I waited for us to be called into his office, and when that happened, I knew exactly what was going to go down.

“Why would I go anywhere with you?” Derek asked.

“There was an accident. You lost some memory, but we can help you get it back.” Scott replied.

“How much memory?” Derek asked.

“A lot. But you can trust us.” Scott replied.

Scott then showed Derek his eyes. I wasn’t sure if that was a good idea or not, but I hope it works.

“You’re an Alpha.” Derek said.

“I’m not the only one.” Scott told him, which gave me my cue.

I showed Derek my eyes, and he looked at me with shock. I gave him a small smile, which he returned, and that told me that he trusted me even more.

“Okay, who are you? And who is he? Who are you?” Derek asked both Scott and Stiles.

He didn’t have to ask me because he knew exactly who I was. I only hope that he does trust them, or I’ll have to step in.

“Oh, we’re the guys keeping you out of jail.” Stiles said with attitude.

“Let us help you.” Scott said.

I knew that Derek wasn’t going to trust them, but he would trust me. If they can’t get him to trust the, then I guess they’ll have to do things my way.

“No.” Derek finally said to Scott.

“Okay dude, you almost tore apart two cops back there. You need to listen to us. And that starts with no fangs, no claws, no wolf man. You got that?” Stiles said, and I knew that, that would trigger something in Derek.

“I’m fine as long as it’s not on a full moon.” Derek said, and that right there gave me my answer.

I knew why Kate did this to Derek. I now knew what she wanted. I’m going to kill this bitch if it’s the last thing I do.

“You still have trouble with the full moon?” Scott asked.

“I said I’m fine.” Derek replied as he looked up at Scott.

“All right, you coming with us or not?” Stiles asked.

“You want me to trust you? Where’s my family?” Derek asked.

I knew right then what Scott was going to do. I hope he’s ready for what will come after he tells Derek the truth.

“There was a fire. And…They’re not here anymore. They’re fine. Just had to move out of Beacon Hills. And we’re going to take you to them as soon as we figure out how to get your memories back.” Scott replied.

A weight was lifted off my shoulders when after Scott said that. I was grateful that Scott lied to him. Derek finally let out a breath, and I knew that he was going to trust Scott.

“Okay.” Derek said.

I stood next to Derek as he filled out some papers. I couldn’t hold back the smile that made its way onto my face, because Haigh was the one telling Derek where to sign. I wanted to laugh in his face, but chose not to because that would be bad for me.

Scott then gives me a ride to get my car, then he heads off to go talk to Peter, and I head home. I changed clothes, and started to clean up. I made a list of stuff that I needed, and while I was creating this list, my phone rung. It was Scott, calling me to tell me to meet him and Malia at the school. I didn’t question it, but when I got there, I had to ask.

“Why am I here, Scott?” I asked.

Before he could answer, Malia looked off across the parking lot. We were all confused, but then I caught the scent, and I could help but shudder. Peter then decided to let us know about this monster called a berserker. One came toward the 4 of us, so we took off. We lost Peter, but Scott, Malia, and I stayed together.

We fought as hard as we could, but nothing helped. We ended up being attacked by 3 berserkers instead of 1, but that didn’t change the outcome. The 3 berserkers cornered the 3 of us, and when I thought we were going to die, Kira jumped right in, and fought them off. I give her props for that, but it didn’t help either because she was then thrown toward us.

We all huddled together, and stood up, but were confused when Derek started to fight them off. I was hoping that he would be ok, but I don’t know anymore. We watched as Derek fought off the berserkers, and one by one, they ran off.

“Derek.” Scott called out.

Derek turned around, and we saw the old Derek. I was happy to see him, but it shocked me when I saw his eyes. They weren’t the pretty blue, but they were yellow. I don’t know what this means, but I’m just glad that he’s back.

After I got over the shock, I ran toward him. Derek hugged me tight. I was happy that he was standing here, and that he was back to his old self.

“I’m glad you’re back.” I whispered to him.

“Me too.” Derek whispered back.

I don’t know how long we stayed like that, but after a few minutes, we pulled apart. I took Derek back to the loft, but he wanted to stay with me. I let him because we both knew that we needed to know that the other was ok. We ended up falling asleep, and I was glad to know that Derek was back, and now the real work can begin. Kate better watch out because I’m coming for her, and this time, she will stay dead.
