Nothing is What it Seems (Book 1)

What if Stiles had a cousin? What if she knew about werewolves? Zaira Trinity was just your average girl except she knew about the supernatural. Read as she goes through life and in the end decides whether or not she wants to follow in her family's footsteps or if she will stand up and fight for the people she loves.
I don't own Teen Wolf, just Zaira, Alexa, Callie, and any other OC that might show up.


14. Code Breaker

After the man beat on Derek for a while, he left for some time, saying something about his hand or something. I don’t know, I wasn’t really paying attention. I still couldn’t believe that I was missing my winter formal because of some bitch.

After a while of sitting in the cold basement, Derek and I heard a distant howl, and I figured that it had to be Scott. I glanced over at Derek as he scrunched up his face before he let out a howl of his own. I shivered at the sound of his howl, and prayed that Scott would know where we were.

After Derek was done howling, the man came back into the room, and turned on the light thing that was pointed at Derek while saying, “Ready to have some more fun?”

“To be honest, my knuckles are kind of hurting. So I brought some help. But I need to warn you. I use to play in college.” the man said as he walked over to Derek with a bat.

I held my breath as the man swung the bat at Derek, but was shocked when Derek caught the bat with one hand.

“I brought a little help, too.” Derek said while the guy looked over his shoulder at the door, where someone was standing. My guess was Scott, but I wasn’t for sure till he walked into the room after Derek punched the man in the face, and knocked him out.

“Thank God, it’s you.” I said as Scott walked into the light.

“Zaira? What the hell are you doing here?” Scott asked as he ran over to me and unchained me.

“I was dragged here. Why else would I be here?” I replied as we walked over to Derek, who had ripped off the tape thing, or whatever it’s called.

“Scott, help me with this.” Derek said, referring to the other chain.

“No.” Scott replied.

“What?” Derek and I asked at the same time.

“Not until you tell me how to stop Peter.” Scott said.

“You really want to talk about this right now?” Derek asked, and I was wondering the same thing.

“He’s going after Allison and her family. He’s going to kill them.” Scott said and I was going to say something about that, but Derek beat me to it.

“So what?” Derek yelled at Scott.

“So tell me how to stop him.” Scott said.

“You can’t! All right? Now… I don’t know when Kate’s coming back, so just get me out of this right now! Get me out right now!” Derek yelled at Scott.

“Scott, look I don’t care what happens anymore, but get Derek out. I don’t want to know what Kate has planned next, so stop being an ass and help Derek.” I said as I looked at Scott.

“Promise you’ll help me.” Scott said completely ignoring me.

“You want me to risk my life for your girlfriend, huh? For your stupid little teenage crush that means absolutely nothing? You’re not in love, Scott. You’re 16 years old. You’re a child.” Derek yelled at Scott and I hoped that, that sunk in with Scott.

“Maybe you’re right. But I know something you don’t. Peter said he didn’t know what he was doing when he killed your sister, right? He lied. Remember this?” Scott asked as he showed Derek a picture of a deer with a spiral on its side.

I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. That meant that Peter killed Laura on purpose just to become Alpha. That made me hate him even more.

“This is what brought your sister back to Beacon Hill, right?” Scott asked.

“Where did you get that?” Derek asked.

“My boss told me three months ago someone came into the clinic asking for a copy of this picture. Do you want to know who it was? Peter’s nurse. They brought your sister here so that Peter could kill her and become the Alpha, and that’s why you’re going to help me.” Scott said.

My heart sunk as I watched Derek lean back against the cage, breathing heavy. I didn’t know what to say or do.

“Just say you’ll help me, and I’ll help you unlock your other…” Scott started to say, but stopped when Derek broke the other chain.

I was shocked, but then again I wasn’t because I knew Derek was stronger than he looked.

“I’ll help you.” Derek said as he rubbed his wrist.

I went over to the table and grabbed everything that was on it.

“This belongs to you.” I said as I handed Scott his phone.

“And… this belongs to you.” I said as I handed Derek all of his stuff.

“I still don’t understand why you’re here, Zaira.” Scott said as we headed out of the basement.

Before I could answer, Derek panted, “Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Something doesn’t feel right.”

“What do you mean?” Scott asked.

“I don’t know. It was… It was kind of like it was…” Derek said before Scott interrupted him.

“No, don’t say, “too easy.” People say “too easy” and bad things happen. What, do you think finding you was easy? Getting away from Allison’s dad? None of this has been easy.” Scott said to Derek.

I stood next to Derek and hoped that we would all get out of this alive.

Derek sighed before saying, “Fine. You’re right.”

“Thank you.” Scott said while turning back around.

Before we knew it, Derek was hit with an arrow and was down. I dropped next to him as another arrow hit him in the leg. I helped Derek break the arrows and followed him as he grabbed Scott and told him to get up and run.

Derek dropped to the ground, but threw Scott ahead of him and told him to run. I dropped next to Derek and tried to pull him up.

“Get out of here Zaira.” Derek groaned as he tried to hide the pain in his voice.

“I’m not leaving you again. I can’t lose you again, Derek.” I replied as Derek looked up at me.

I looked up as Allison walked over to Scott. They talked and I hoped that she would forgive Scott for everything, but at the moment, I don’t think that she will.

Kate walked up groaning about something, and saying something about killing Scott and Derek before she shot Derek.

Derek fell back and I caught his head in my lap.

“This may sound a little off, but you’re beautiful.” Derek said as he looked up at me.

“It doesn’t sound off at all, and thank you.” I replied before I leaned down and kissed him.

Everything around us seemed to stop, but we came back to reality when Mr. Argent showed up, and shot his gun at a tree behind Kate’s head. I was happy that he did something to help save Scott, but I was scared when the door creaked open.

I left Derek where he was, actually, he told me to go help Scott, and stood next to Allison just to make sure she would be safe.

“What is it?” Allison asked.

“It’s the Alpha.” Scott replied as his eyes turned gold.

Peter ran around us and knocked us all down till Kate was the only one standing. I laughed at Kate because she was telling Peter to come on, when she had no idea what was in store for her.

Peter popped up next to Kate, grabbed her wrist, and made her shoot all the bullets in her gun in the air as he bent her arm back, and he broke her wrist, so she dropped the gun. Then he grabbed her by the throat and threw her onto the porch before dragging her into the house.

“No!” Allison yelled as she got up and ran into the house.

I got up and ran in after her, only to stop in the doorway and see Peter holding Kate by the throat with his claws.

“She is beautiful, Kate. She looks like you. Probably not as damaged. So I’m going to give you a chance to save her. Apologize. Say that you’re sorry for decimating my family, for leaving me burned and broken for six years. Say it. And I’ll let her live.” Peter said as I placed my arm in front of Allison.

I glared at Peter to let him know that he would have to kill me before he touched Allison.

“I’m sorry.” Kate gasped before Peter ripped her throat out.

I stopped Allison from running over to her aunt. I felt bad for her, but I didn’t feel like explaining to Scott why I let his girlfriend die.

Kate fell to the floor, dead, and I knew she was thinking about what she did before she hit the ground.

“I don’t know about you, Allison, but that apology didn’t sound very sincere.” Peter said as he started to walk towards me and Allison.

We backed up just an inch before Scott walked up, growling. We looked to our right, I think, and saw Derek coming around the corner.

“Run!” Scott told us, and we did just that and ran straight to Mr. Argent.

I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen to Derek and Scott since they were facing off against an Alpha. I just prayed that both of them came out alive.

Allison and I looked up when we heard glass shattering, and saw Scott lying on the ground after being thrown through a window.

The Alpha followed and I couldn’t help but be frightened because this was the first time I actually got to see it up close. We heard tires screeching, and saw Jackson and Stiles get out of Jackson’s car.

Stiles threw this bottle of something, Lydia called it something the night of the school attack, but I forgot what it was called, but the Alpha caught it, and growled.

“Oh, damn.” Stiles said as he backed up.

“Allison!” Scott yelled as he threw Allison her bow, who caught it, loaded an arrow in it, and shot it at the bottle, shattering it, and sending the alpha into flames.

Jackson then threw another bottle at the Alpha, and caught the rest of its body on fire.

The Alpha started making its way towards Allison and I before Scott yelled, “No!” and jumped up and then kicked the Alpha away from us, sending him to the ground by a tree, gasping for air.

I watched as Allison went over to Scott and kiss him. I was so proud of her, even though she shot my man, but I wasn’t going to hold that against her.

Scott suddenly turned his head and saw Derek walking over to his uncle, which I did as well, but stopping to stand next to Scott.

“Wait! You said the cure comes from the one who bit you. Derek. If you do this, I’m dead. Her father, her family… What am I supposed to do?” Scott asked Derek, who we were all waiting on to answer.

Everyone was waiting for something to happen, and I was shocked when I felt Allison grip my arm. I grabbed her hand that was on my arm, and gave it a squeeze to let her know that I wasn’t going anywhere.

“Wait! No, no! Don’t!” Scott yelled as Derek raised his claws and sliced Peter’s throat.

Mr. Argent hugged Allison close as she buried her head in his neck. Mr. Argent also pulled me to him, which I was grateful for, and hugged me as well.

“I’m the Alpha now.” Derek said in a deep voice, which scared me by the way.

*Callie’s POV*

I still haven’t heard from Zaira, Scott, Stiles, Allison, Lydia, or Jackson, and I’m starting to get worried. I was about to call Stiles, when I heard his jeep pull up.

I ran to the door, opened it, and hugged Stiles as tight as I could.

“It’s over now.” Stiles said as I led him to my living room.

“What do you mean? Is Zaira ok?” I asked and prayed that she was alive.

“Yes, Zaira is ok, and Derek is the new Alpha now.” Stiles replied and I was grateful to know that Zaira was alive, but I didn’t know how to react about Derek.

Stiles didn’t say much after that and I got the feeling that there was something else on his mind, but what.

I decided to be bold and take matters into my own hands.

I grabbed Stiles’ face and kissed him. He sat there shocked for quite some time, so I pulled away, but didn’t get far because he grabbed my face and kissed me. I don’t know where this will leave us or where it will go, but I hope that something good comes out of it.

*Zaira’s POV*

I just sat at the top of the stairs not knowing what to say or think at the moment.

What’s going to happen now? What do I do now? Do I stay? Or do I leave? I’m so fucking confused right now.

I was about to say something to Derek when the front door opened and Jackson walked in.

“Derek. Derek!” Jackson yelled as he searched for Derek.

Derek stood at the top of the stairs, and Jackson jumped a little.

“I…I helped you. I helped save you. Okay, you got what you wanted. You got what you wanted. Now it’s my turn to get what I want.” Jackson said before Derek jumped off the top of the stairs, and landed on the floor in front of Jackson.

Derek gave Jackson a wicked grin before giving Jackson what he wanted, the bite.

After that I pretty much left, well tried to leave anyway, but Derek caught my wrist.

“I have to go, Derek.” I said as I turned to look at him.

“No, actually, you don’t.” Derek said back with an evil look.

“You can’t scare me Derek. I’m not some stupid kid that wants you to bite them. I’m leaving.” I spat back as I turned back around and headed for the door, only to be pinned to it.

I looked up at Derek and his eyes had changed from green to red.

“What do you want from me? You don’t want to let me in, but yet you want me to stay by you. Just tell me straight up what you want.” I demanded as I looked at Derek.

“I…I want you to stay. There are you happy, now.” Derek said as he pulled back from me.

“Yes, actually, I am happy.” I said back as I took a step toward Derek.

I jumped on him and hugged him tight and felt him hug me back.

Derek drove me home, and stayed by me the whole night. I don’t know what lies ahead, but I do know that I hope we’ll be by each other’s sides no matter what.

“Zaira.” Derek said.

“Yeah, Derek.” I said back.

After a long pause, Derek finally said, “I love you.”

I was stunned. Did Derek Hale just say he loved me? After all this time, I finally heard the 3 words I’ve been wanting to hear.

“I love you, too, Derek.” I said back before I kissed him.

Derek kissed back, and let’s just say that, that night was the best night of my life. Guess dreams do come true, or maybe I’m just good at getting what I want. Who knows?


Well guys, this is the end of book 1. Keep a watch out for book 2 called To Love and To Lose. :) I'm re-writing it because I don't think some of the quotes match, but I should be done editing it soon. :)
