8. Time of Death

I tossed and turned all night long and I finally gave up on trying to sleep, so I made my way to the kitchen. As I was passing Stiles' room, I noticed that he was tossing and turning as well. I decided to join him and maybe both of us will get at least some sleep. I guess it worked because the next thing I know, is that Stiles is lightly shaking me awake.


“Did you get any sleep?” I asked him as I got up.


“I did. Thank you for that.” Stiles replied.


“Of course. That's what family is for.” I laughed.


Stiles laughed as I went to go change. I was not looking forward to whatever the hell Scott has planned. He told us that he has a plan to find out who the benefactor is, but I'm not too sure if I want to know. But then again I want to know who it is because they are trying to kill my family. Hazelle met us at Scott's house and when he explained his plan, I almost slapped him. It was a good thing that Hazelle was there because I don't know if I would've been able to keep myself together.


“Are you alright with this?” Hazelle asked as we drove to the hospital.


“Hell no, but I'll do whatever it takes to protect them.” I replied.


Hazelle didn't say anything else, but she didn't have to because I knew that she would stand by me no matter what. When we got to the hospital, we walked through the door just in time to hear Mamma McCall scream about Scott. We ran to hear and if I'm being honest, seeing her like this is killing me. All of us walked into the morgue and Kira's mom explained what was going to happen and how long we had which is 45 minutes.


Hazelle and I then went into one of the rooms, where the laptops were set up, and waited. I knew this was going to be a very long night and I hope that the benefactor shows up soon. All of a sudden one of the cameras went out, so Kira and Liam went to check it out.


“I'm going to with them just for extra measure.” Hazelle told me.


“Alright, but be extra careful.” I said back.


Hazelle gave me a nod before following after Kira and Liam. I know that Hazelle can handle herself, but with the benefactor around, I want to make sure that she's extra careful.


*Hazelle's POV*

I looked around with Kira and Liam, when all of a sudden, the middle gate exploded. I heard growling from behind me, so I turned around and saw a berzerker standing there. Liam joined Kira and I and all three of us got ready for the fight of our lives. All three of us were getting our asses kicked and I didn't know if we were going to make it or not.


*End of POV*


Stiles and I were with Scott's body and Stiles was trying to get a hold of Argent. All of a sudden, Argent was thrown into the room.


“I was right. Stiles, Zaira, get out of here.” Argent grunted.


“Get out of the way, Stiles, Zaira. I'm taking the body.” Kate told us as she walked into the morgue.


“Why? Visual confirmation?” Stiles questioned.


“Don't worry handsome. I'm not the benefactor.” Kate replied.


“Then what do you want with the body?” Argent asked.


“I wish I could tell you.” Kate replied.


“Then I guess you'll have to kill me because I'm not letting you get your slutty hands on my brother.” I growled.


Before Kate could respond, Argent pulls out a second gun and points it at Kate.


“I always forget you carry two.” Kate said.


I didn't really hear the conversation between Kate and Argent because I was more focused on the time. I didn't know how much longer we had before time was up, and I'm also starting to worry about Hazelle, Kira, and Liam. Whatever Argent said to Kate must have gotten to her because the next thing I know, she's walking out of the room. After she was gone, I let out a breath that I didn't know I was holding.


*Hazelle's POV*


Kira, Liam, and I kept fighting the berzerker, and boy was we getting our asses handed to us. For some reason, when Kira and I got ready to attack, the berzerker turned around and left. Kira, Liam, and I shared a look before going back inside. Kira brought Scott back to life and all of us hugged him. I could tell that this plan bothered Zaira more because she hugged Scott extra tight. Zaira may hide her feelings from everyone else, but she can't hide them from me. I know that all of this is getting to her, and I don't know if I can keep her sane by myself.


*End of POV*


I decided to call Derek and check on him and Braden. Derek told me that he and Braden were fine and then asked me if I was alright. I told him that I was as good as I was going to get, but as long as everyone I love is alive then I'm good. Derek laughed but we agreed that we would help each other out any way we could. I hung up from him and tried to call Jordan. I didn't get an answer and that worried me.


Is everything alright Zaira?” Hazelle asked.


I don't know girl. Jordan's not answering his phone and I'm getting worried.” I replied.


I'm sure he's fine. Why don't you go home and I'll track him down, alright?” Hazelle suggested.


I nodded my head and started home. I had just pulled into my driveway when my phone rung. I looked at the screen and saw that Alysia was calling me.


Hey, girl. Are you alright?” I asked as I answered my phone.


I think so, girl. I was out for a walk and ended up at the school. I can see a patrol car across the way, but I'm not sure whose it is.” Alysia replied.


That's alright. I'm on my way so just wait for me ok.” I told her.


Alysia agreed and after we hung up, I called Hazelle, told her what was going on, and headed to the school. Hazelle told me to be careful and I plan on it, but deep down, I know that something is severely wrong.
