I don't own Teen Wolf, just Zaira, Alexa, Callie, and any other OC that might show up.


7. Alexa's Funeral and Zaira's Pledge

It’s been 2 days since I saw Alexa, but that’s because it took her parents 2 days to get here and now I was sitting in the funeral home with her parents as people came by telling us how sorry they were. I didn’t believe most of them, but I didn’t let it show.

Most of the school came by, but I was most shocked when I saw Jackson and Lydia come in.

They hugged me, but it was awkward. They told me that they were sorry, and went on to hug Alexa’s parents.

“Hey Zaira.” Allison said as I turned around to see her, Mr. Argent, Mrs. Argent, and the last person I wanted to see, Kate.

“Hey Allie, Mr. and Mrs. Argent.” I replied as I greeted them.

“Oh! This is my aunt Kate. Aunt Kate, this is my friend Zaira.” Allison said as she introduced us.

“Hi.” we said at the same time.

“Zaira, how are you?” Scott asked as he and Stiles walked up to us.

“I’m doing ok.” I replied as I hugged them both.

“Derek wants to see you later.” Scott whispered in my ear, and that made me blush slightly because Derek isn’t the type of person to show that he cares, unless it’s family or a mate.

The day dragged on and on and I was kind of glad to go home. I kept thinking about what happened to Alexa that I didn’t notice that someone had followed me inside.

“How are you?” Derek asked as I jumped 20 ft. in the air.

“Scared out of my mind thanks to you, but other than that, I’m ok.” I replied as I heard Derek snort.

We stood there for I don’t know how long till I decided to head up to my room and change into my pajamas. Derek followed me, but stopped when I passed Alexa’s door.

“She was killed just like Laura.” I said as I turned to look at him.

Derek was about to say something, but I cut him off.

“No, the Alpha didn’t do it. I have an idea of who did it, but I don’t have proof.” I said as I continued to my room.

Derek just followed and stayed quiet, but I was glad that he was here because I didn’t really want to be alone. I know, I know, I probably sound pretty desperate, but come on, my best friend was slaughtered and the killer, or in my head, killers, could come back and kill me. I didn’t want to be home alone if they came back.

“Make yourself at home. I’m going to shower and change.” I told Derek as I grabbed my clothes and headed into my bathroom.

Derek just stood by my window and I guess watched for any movement till I got out of shower.

I walked out of my bathroom and just crashed on my bed. I tried not to let the tears that formed in my eyes fall, but the tears fell anyway.

“Why her? What did she do to deserve to die?” I asked Derek as I lifted my head off my pillow to look at him.

Derek just looked at me, but sat next to me on my bed. I sat up and leaned my head on his shoulder as more tears fell down my face.

“What should I do, Derek? They took my best friend away from me for no reason.” I said as I started crying.

Derek just sat there and let me cry on his shoulder. After a couple of minute, though, he wrapped his arm around me and pulled me closer to him so my head was on his chest.

“I-I honestly don’t know what to tell you, Zaira.” Derek replied as I grabbed a handful of his shirt.

We sat there for a good while till there was a knock on my door. I told Derek to stay put and went to answer it. When I opened the door, Callie was standing there with Stiles, and just Stiles, which was odd.

“Are you up for some company?” Callie asked as she hugged me.

I just nodded my head and let them in. they followed me to my room and Stiles let out a shriek when he saw Derek sitting on my bed.

“What is he doing here?” Stiles asked as Callie looked at him funny.

“He’s here to protect me. Why else would he be here?” I answered as I asked him a question while proving a point.

Stiles went to open his mouth, but Callie gave him a look, so he shut up and sat in my bean bag chair.

Callie joined Stiles in the bean bag chair and I curled up back on my bed. Callie put in some movie and we were about half way into it, when I felt Derek pull me to him slightly. I smiled at his effort and slide closer to him so his arm would be around me.

Sometime during the movie, we all fell asleep, and when I woke up the next morning, I noticed that Callie, Stiles, and I were alone.

 “We’ll see you at the church.” Stiles said as he and Callie hugged me before they left.

I went back up to my room, grabbed my clothes, went into my bathroom, and took a shower. When I got out, I got ready for the worst day of my life.

I drove my car to the funeral home and met up with Scott, Stiles, Callie, and Allison.

Scott hugged me really tight and I swear I saw a hint of jealousy flash across Allison’s eyes.

‘Why would she be jealous of me? I have feelings for Derek, not Scott.’ I thought to myself as Scott and I pulled apart and we headed inside.

I sat with Alexa’s parents and they were happy to see me, even though it was under this circumstance.

The funeral was nice and so was the burial, but I wouldn’t expect anything less coming from Alexa’s parents.

“Unfortunately we have to be going. I wish we could stay, but our new baby needs us.” Mrs. Blake said as her and Mr. Blake stood next to their car.

“I understand. Have a safe trip.” I replied as I smiled at them both before walking off to my own car.

“How come they didn’t stay?” Callie asked as I drove us home.

“Alexa was never close to her mom. She always stuck with her dad whenever they did something or went somewhere. They either had another baby or they adopted one because Mrs. Blake told me that they had a new baby that needed them.” I replied as I kept my eyes on the road.

“That seems selfish to me.” Callie said with a snort.

“I agree, but at least they made arrangements for Alexa instead of just throwing everything off on me.” I said back as I pulled into her driveway.

“You sure you’ll be ok?” Callie asked referring to me being in the house where Alexa was killed.

“Yeah I’ll be fine, and besides, I have Derek watching me even when I don’t want him around.” I replied with a laugh.

Callie smiled real big and so did I. We said good-bye and as I drove off, I noticed that Stiles’ jeep pulled in the driveway.

“He better not break her heart or I’ll kill him.” I said to myself as I drove home.

I got home, went inside and up to my room, after making sure that all doors and windows were locked tight, changed back into my pajamas, and crashed onto my bed.

“Thanks for being there even though you were hidden.” I said into my pillow to Derek because I knew he was in my room.

Derek gave a slight chuckle and sat on my bed.

I rolled over and looked up at him.

I was about to say something when Derek shocked me by leaning over and kissing me. Yes, you heard me. Derek kissed me!

I kissed him back and we kissed for a few minutes before we were interrupted by my phone going off.

Derek growled as I pulled away, but I gave him a quick peck before answering my phone.

“Hello.” I answered.

“Hello sweetheart. Remember me?” a chilling voice asked.

“Who is this?” I asked sort of frightened and I knew that Derek picked up on my heart beat.

“You’ll find out soon enough.” the voice said as they hung up.

“Who the hell was that?” Derek asked as I hung up my phone.

“I don’t know, but now I’m freaking out.” I replied as I looked at him.

Derek pulled me into his arms and hugged me tight.

“I won’t let anyone touch you.” Derek mumbled as I clung to him.

“I know Derek.” I said back before we curled up on my bed and went to sleep.

I knew that I need all the sleep that I could get because my world was probably fixing to come crashing down. I may not have known who the person was that called me, but I did know that they weren’t going to bring me down that easily. I was going to train my butt off, and whenever that person comes into my life, I’ll be ready to take them down.
