10. Monstrous

I rode with Jordan and Meredith to the station and I called Hazelle to let her know what's going on and that she needed to fill Scott in. Hazelle agreed and told me that she'll do whatever she can. I thanked her and watched as the scenery changed. I was very uncomfortable being so close to Meredith, but I was willing to suck it up if it meant that I could spend more time with Jordan. I hope we figure out why Meredith did this and we also need to know how to stop the dead pool.


*Hazelle’s POV*


I met Scott and Liam as they were leaving Scott’s house and let them know that Stiles, Lydia, and Zaira are alright and that Meredith was behind the dead pool. Both of them were shocked but they were grateful that everyone was alright. I followed Scott as he dropped Liam off at home and headed to the Animal Clinic. Zaira told me about this place and I was excited to actually see what’s inside. When Scott and I got inside, I took notice that there were other people there besides us. I followed Scott and Kira as she showed us the people that she had found and saved. I took notice that one of the people in the room was Brett. I also took notice that he seemed to be guarding a younger girl. I have a gut feeling that the younger girl is his sister. I hope that we can end this dead pool because if not, then there might be more bodies to bury.


*End of POV*


I guess Lydia and I fell asleep because the next thing I know, my uncle is shaking Lydia awake, which in turn woke me up. I listened as my uncle and Lydia started talking and was just about to say something when Jordan walked up.


“We went through everything in Brunski’s office, and so far everything amounts to pretty much nothing. Did either of you not go home yet?” Jordan told my uncle before turning to us.


“Not until Meredith starts talking.” Lydia replied.


“I’m just here for her.” I replied as well.


“Lydia, I promise she’ll talk, and when she does, I’ll let you know. Trust me on this. Everybody talks eventually.” my uncle told Lydia.


“Then let me try.” Lydia said.


“No, we’ve already discussed this.” my uncle argued.


“I’ve gotten through to her before. Just let me try.” Lydia argued back.


“Come on uncle, we both know that Meredith won’t talk to anyone but Lydia. I think we should let her try.” I said.


Everyone turned to look at me and Lydia gave me a smile, which I returned. My uncle just rolled his eyes, but he knew that I was right. I gave Lydia my winning smile because she knew that my uncle would do anything for me.


*Hazelle’s POV*


I followed Scott and Kira as they took Brett and the others to an abandoned building that was owned by the Argent family. I finally got to meet the infamous Chris Argent that Zaira talks about, but I’m not sure what to think about him. I know that she helped Zaira and that he left because he lost both his daughter and wife, but why come back? I hope that he’s being genuine because if not, then we’ll have a big problem.


*End of POV*


I was standing between my uncle and Jordan as we watched Lydia talk to Meredith. I hope we find out why Meredith did this because I don’t want anybody else taking a chance on killing someone off the list. Haigh trying to kill Jordan was the last straw, and I’ll be damned if I let anyone else try. I was pulled from my thoughts when Meredith said that she wanted to help after Lydia said something about her giving us a one of the cipher keys to unlock the part of the dead pool.


“All you ever wanted to do was help. Is that why you’re here? I know you wouldn’t want to be here if you didn’t want to talk.” Lydia said.


“I do. But only to one person.” Meredith told us.


“Who?” Lydia questioned and I was wondering the same thing.


“Peter. Peter Hale.” Meredith replied.


I almost fell over after Meredith said that. Why in the hell would she want to talk to him? Does he have something to do with this? Did he help create the dead pool? I guess we’ll know soon.


*Hazelle’s POV*


I listened as everyone gave their opinion about what was about to go down, but I was a little more concerned about Derek since he doesn’t have any powers. I’m not sure about him using a gun, but if Braden trained him well, then I guess everything will work out. I cracked my knuckles and popped my neck because I knew that this fight was going to be a very long one.


*End Of POV*


I stood in the viewing room with Lydia and my uncle, while Jordan was in the interrogation room with Meredith and Peter. I listened as Peter talked to Meredith and almost went into the room when Peter grabbed Meredith’s wrist, but my uncle stopped me. The talking continued but the minute that Peter shoved Jordan into a wall and shoved his claws into Meredith’s neck, I bolted into the room. I made sure Jordan was alright and let Lydia handle my uncle.


“What are we supposed to do?” my uncle asked completely confused.


“I,uh... I don’t know.” Lydia replied.


“What the hell is he doing to her?” Jordan asked.


“He’s going through her memories and seeing what the hell she said was true or not.” I replied.


We then listened as Lydia explained what the hell Meredith was mumbling. Lydia told us that Meredith was in the same hospital as Peter after the fire. That actually makes sense on how she knew about the burns, but it still doesn’t explain on why she created the dead pool. Lydia then told us that it was Peter’s idea for the dead pool. I’m in total shock right now, and I want answers.


*Hazelle’s POV*


I was standing back to back with Scott, helping him fight off these damn assassins that think they’re going to get money. There are so damn many of the fucking assassins, but I’m not going to stop fighting until Scott does.


*End Of POV*


I watched the scene unfold before me as my uncle pointed his gun at Peter. Lydia then tried to diffuse the situation.


“Stop. Stop it. This is what she wants. It’s why she’s here. Look around, Sheriff. There’s three people in here right now. Three people still on the dead pool. Me, Parrish... and Meredith.” Lydia told us.


“But not him and Zaira.” Jordan said.


I didn’t know what to say, so I let everybody talk. I only spoke when Peter decided to threaten my uncle.


“You know what, if you dare touch a hair on my family’s head then I’ll fucking end you myself. A gun might not take you down, but I know damn well that an Alpha can take you.” I growled as my Alpha side took over.


Peter just smirked at me before walking out the door. I felt bad for Meredith but right now, I need to take a walk because I’m still pissed off.


*Hazelle’s POV*


These assassins are getting on my damn nerves, but I’m going to do whatever it takes to help Scott and the others. I saw that the girl that Brett was protective of was about to get shot, so I went after the assassin and saved the girl. Scott helped me out as well and told the girl to run. I watched as Scott started beating the shit out of this guy, but I didn’t know what to say to stop him.


Scott is starting to scare me because his face keeps morphing as he continues to beat the shit out of the guy. Scott finally stopped attacking the guy long enough to show the guy his phone screen where it said that all contracts were terminated. I’m so glad that all this shit is over, and I can’t wait to get back to my best friend and hug her to death.


*End Of POV*


I let Lydia talk to Meredith alone, but I stayed outside my uncle’s office just to be safe. I can tell that this is taken a toll on both my uncle and Jordan, but I hope that they hang in there just a little bit longer. I got a call from Hazelle and she told me that the dead pool is over. I’m grateful for that because now I don’t have to worry about losing Jordan, or anyone else. Maybe now we can live our lives peacefully, even if it’s only for a few moments.
