8. Heart Monitor

I woke up sometime in the night and noticed that Derek was gone. I figured that he probably went to train Scott, which I wish I could’ve seen because I bet it would be funny.

I rolled over and went back to sleep. I woke up later on and got ready. As I got ready, I kept thinking about Alexa.

“Stop it Zaira! Alexa wouldn’t want you to blame yourself. She would want you to grieve then get up and train so the next time, you can take her killer or killers down.” I told myself as I shook my head, headed down stairs, out the door, and to school.

I didn’t see any of my friends, so I went to my locker and grabbed my books, and headed to class, which I had with Scott, Stiles, and Callie.

I took a seat behind Callie, who was sitting across from Stiles, and watched as Scott walked in, looked at Stiles and sighed, and took the seat behind Stiles.

“Still not talking to me?” Scott asked as he leaned up close to Stiles.

Stiles just stayed quiet and I was confused because Scott and Stiles always talk to each other.

Scott sighed before saying, “Can you at least tell me if your dad’s ok? It’s just a bruise, right? Some soft tissue damage. Nothing that big.” Scott started as Stiles just sat there trying not to talk to him.

Scott shook his head before finishing, “You know I feel really bad about it, right? Ok, What if I told you that I-I’m trying to figure this whole thing out and that I went to Derek for help.”

I looked between the two boys and wondered why it would be a bad thing if Derek helped Scott.

Stiles slammed his pencil down and sighed before replying, “If I was talking to you, I’d say that you’re an idiot for trusting him, but obliviously I’m not talking to you.”

“What’s going on with them?” I whispered to Callie as the bell rung.

“The night of the conference, a mountain lion, which Mr. Argent killed, was loose on the parking lot, and Mr. Stilinski was standing behind a car and the car backed up and hit him.” Callie explained to me.

I looked down at my notebook with a sad expression because I was so caught up in my own life that I didn’t realize that my friends needed me.

Stiles kept trying to decide whether or not if he wanted to turn around, but in the end turned around and asked, “What did he say?”

Scott smiled real big before explaining everything that Derek said to Stiles.

At the end of class, Callie and I followed Scott and Stiles and listened to their conversation.

“What? He wants you to type into your animal side and get angry.” Stiles said.

“Yeah.” Scott answered as he straightened the strap on his backpack.

 “Alright, correct me if I’m wrong, but every time you do that you try to kill someone, and that someone’s usually me.” Stiles said as he waved his arms around.

“I know. That’s what he means when he says that he doesn’t know if he can teach me. I have to be able to control it.” Scott said back.

I just shook my head and kept quiet because I knew I would know more than Stiles later, and I couldn’t get last night out of my head.

“Well, how’s he going to teach you to do that?” Stiles asked as he looked over at Scott.

“I don’t know. I don’t think he does either.” Scott replied.

“Ok. When are you seeing him again?” Stiles asked.

“He told me not to talk about it just act normal and get through the day…” Scott was saying before Stiles stopped him and asked, “When?”

“He’s picking me up at the animal clinic after work.” Scott finished.

“After work. Alright, that gives me till the end of the school day then.” Stiles said as I looked from him to Scott.

“To do what?” Scott asked.

“To teach you myself.” Stiles replied before walking off.

“I’ll keep a watch on them.” Callie said before she went to follow Stiles.

“Thanks girl. Keep me posted.” I said as I headed off to my next class.

*Callie’s POV*

I followed Scott and Stiles onto the lacrosse field, and knew that Scott was in for it because Stiles had filled me in.

“Ok.” Stiles said as he sat his stuff down on the bench.

“Now, put this on.” Stiles said as he handed Scott a belt.

“Is this one of the heart rate monitors for the track team?” Scott asked as he looked at the belt then at Stiles.

“Yeah, I borrowed it.” Stiles replied.

“Stole it.” Scott said.

“Temporarily misappropriated. Coach uses it to monitor his heart rate with his phone while he jogs. You’re going to wear it for the rest of the day.” Stiles said as I gave them both a look.

“Isn’t that coach’s phone?” Scott asked.

“That, I stole.” Stiles replied.

“Why?” Scott asked.

“Well, your heart rate goes up when you go wolf right? When you play lacrosse? When you’re with Allison? Whenever you get angry? Maybe learning how to control it is tied with learning how to control your heart rate.” Stiles said as he looked up at Scott.

“Like the incredible hulk.” Scott stated.

“Kinda like the incredible hulk.” Stiles stated back.

“No, I’m like the incredible hulk.” Scott said.

“Just shut up and put the strap on.” Stiles said as Scott started putting on the belt, strap, or whatever that thing was called.

I didn’t really care; I was only here because of Zaira. She’s been a little off since Alexa died, but I was there for her whenever she needed me. I couldn’t wait till we figured out who killed Alexa because they would pay dearly.

Sorry. I get caught up in my thoughts sometimes and I just ramble on and on and on, like I am now. Callie, shut up and pay attention to the boys.

“This isn’t exactly how I wanted to spend my free period.” Scott said after Stiles got done tying his hands behind his back with duct tape.

“Alright. Ready?” Stiles asked.

“No.” Scott replied.

“Remember, don’t get angry.” Stiles said as he touched an app on the phone and got ready to throw some balls at Scott.

“I’m starting to think this is really bad idea.” Scott said before he was hit with a ball.

I noticed that Stiles was having too much fun, but not everything would be this easy for Scott. I knew that Stiles’ intentions were good, but maybe I should’ve trained Scott, or at least helped him.

After a while, I noticed that Scott was getting really angry and when he dropped to the ground, after he broke through the duct tape, I ran down and stood next to Stiles after they had a conversation about him staying away from Allison, which I knew wouldn’t work because he was “in love” with her as he claims.

We headed back into school and went our separate ways.

*Zaira’s POV*

I walked into Coach Finstock’s class and took a seat next to Stiles.

“Heard you hit Scott with some lacrosse balls.” I said as I sat down.

Stiles gave me a huge grin before turning back and facing the front.

I watched as Scott and Allison talk about whatever they talk about. I know that’s mean, but something just seems off about Allison, but then again, I may be wrong.

I started taking notes till coach started talking to Scott and embarrassing him in front of the class. I kept hearing this beeping noise, so I leaned over and saw that Stiles had a phone that was counting.

I kept watching the numbers go up till all of a sudden, they started going down. Stiles and I glanced over at Scott and I noticed that he was holding hands with Allison under her desk, which made me smile because that meant that she calmed him down.

After class I just ignored the boys and went straight to my locker. I had to leave early because I had to do something before I met up with Derek later on.

When I left, I got home, changed clothes, grabbed my gun and my compound bow, and headed out into the woods to train.

After a while, I gathered my things and headed to the animal clinic. I wanted to meet Scott’s boss, and I wanted to know if he knew the answer to my question.

When I arrived I was greeted by Scott, who had just rolled up on his bike.

We didn’t ask questions, headed inside, but stopped when Scott yelled, “What are you doing?!”

“Scott, get out of here!” Scott’s boss yelled back before Derek punched him.

“Stop! Stop!” Scott yelled as he reached Derek.

“Look, when he’s conscious he can keep himself from healing, but unconscious he can’t.” Derek yelled at Scott.

“Are you out of your mind?! What are you talking about?!” Scott yelled.

“Do you want to know what the spiral means, Scott? It’s our sign for vendetta, for revenge, which means he won’t stop killing till he’s satisfied!” Derek yelled back at Scott.

I just stood there and listened. I knew what the spiral meant and that’s what I buried Alexa under, but the only one who knew that was Derek because he helped me.

“You think he’s the alpha.” Scott stated.

“We’re about to find out.” Derek said as he went to punch Scott’s boss, but was stopped by Scott, who was in wolf mode.

Scott threw Derek’s arm away from his boss and Derek took a few steps back in shock. Yes, I said shock.

After Scott calmed himself down he said, “Hit him again, and you’ll see me get angry.”

I was proud of Scott because he finally grew some balls and stood up to Derek.

I didn’t get to hear the rest of their conversation because Callie called me.

I stepped outside and took the call, but we didn’t talk long because I hung up once I saw Derek coming out.

“What the hell was that?” I asked as Derek stood next to me.

“Don’t worry about it.” Derek replied.

I was about to say something when Scott walked out.

“Keep him safe.” Scott said to me, talking about his boss.

“Of course.” I replied before he left to go meet up with Stiles.

Derek went back into the clinic, tied Scott’s boss up, with duct tape, and put him in the back seat of his Camaro.

I climbed into the front with him and he didn’t say anything, but started to drive to the school.

When we got to the school, I heard Scott ask about his boss, and Derek pointed to the back seat.

I waited till Scott and Stiles were inside the school before I got out.

“What do you think they’re doing?” I asked Derek as we leaned against Stiles’ jeep.

Derek didn’t get to reply because we heard a loud screeching noise.

I covered my ears and saw Derek’s eyes close in embarrassment.

After the screeching was over, I uncovered my ears only to recover them when a loud roar ripped through the parking lot.

“I’m going to kill both of you. What the hell was that? Are you trying to attract the entire state to the school?” Derek said as Scott and Stiles came out of the school.

“Sorry. I didn’t know it would be that loud.” Scott replied.

“Yeah, it was loud. And it was awesome.” Stiles said with a big grin.

“Shut up.” Derek said.

“Don’t be such a sour wolf.” Stiles said back.

“What did you do with him?” Scott asked.

“What?” Derek asked back as we turned around and looked in the back seat where Scott’s boss should’ve been.

“I didn’t do anything.” Derek said turning back around before the Alpha sunk his claws into Derek’s back.

“Derek!” I yelled before Scott and Stiles dragged me into the school with them.

I sunk to the floor and watched as they held onto the doors for dear life.

What just happened? Why did the Alpha attack Derek? I’m so confused right now. Derek can’t be dead. Stop thinking like that Zaira! Derek’s fine and when you get out of here, you’ll see him again. He’s perfectly fine.

I kept telling myself that to keep myself calm and it was working, until I realized that we were in the school, trapped by the Alpha that wanted to kill us.

What the hell did it want from us? Why does it want to kill us?
