4. Abomination

I woke up the next morning, took a shower, changed into my running clothes, and headed out for a run. I didn’t know where I was going, but I just kept running. I stopped running when I realized that I was at an abandoned train station. I slowly made my way inside, and was met by Boyd sitting on the stairs, and Isaac, Erica, and Derek training.

“He’s so predictable.” I whispered to Boyd as I sat next to him.

Boyd grinned as we watched Derek throw Isaac to the ground time after time after time.

Erica then jumped off the top of a train, but Derek was faster, and threw her to the ground.

“Does anyone wanna try not being completely predictable?” Derek asked before Erica jumped on him, and kissed him.

I admit that I was feeling jealous, but that disappeared when Derek threw her off.

“That’s the last time you do that.” Derek said as he wiped his lips.

“Why, ‘cause I’m a Beta?” Erica asked as she looked up at Derek.

I walked over to them with Boyd, and smiled at Derek when he saw me.

“No. It’s because I have some else in mind for you.” Derek said back.

“Are we done? ‘Cause I got about 100 bones that need a few hours to heal.” I said as he sat up.

Derek walked over to us, got Isaac to hand him his arm, and broke it.

“101. You think I’m teaching you how to fight, huh? Look at me! I’m teaching you how to survive.” Derek said angrily as he got up.

I noticed that he was tensed, and thought that maybe a good massage would do the trick. I know what you’re thinking. ‘I thought she hated Derek. Why does she want to help him?’. I can’t help that I still have feelings for Derek. I hate him for what he did to me, but I still love him.

“If they wanted us dead, why aren’t they coming for us now? What are they waiting for?” Isaac asked as he looked from us to Derek, but was shocked when he saw me.

“I don’t know. But they’re planning something, and you, especially, know that’s not our only problem. Whatever that thing is that killed Isaac’s father, I think it killed some else last night. And until I find out what it is, you all need to learn everything that I know. As fast as I can teach you.” Derek said before heading into the train.

I followed after him, and grabbed his wrist.

“What are you doing here, Zaira?” Derek asked as he turned around to face me.

“Honestly, I have no idea. I went for a run, and somehow ended up here.” I replied as I sat on a bench.

Derek didn’t say anything back, and that was a little unsettling.

“Look, why else would I be here? I’m scared ok. I may be a hunter, but I’m still human.” I said as I tried to keep my hands from shaking. That was the truth. I’m scared that Gerard may come after me. I don’t know what he’s planning, but I do know that it can’t be good.

After a few minutes of Derek not talking, I got up and left. I walked past the others, and tried to keep the tears from falling. I ran all the way back home before crashing on my bed, and bawling my eyes out.

I guess I cried myself to sleep because before I knew it, my alarm was going off. I got up, showered, changed, and headed out the door.

When I got to school, I basically kept to myself, except when Callie came up to talk to me. I felt guilty for not talking to her these past few days, but I needed some time to think.

“You ok girl?” Callie asked as we met at my locker.

“Yeah girl, I’m fine. I’m ready for the lacrosse game.” I said with a grin.

“I know me too!” Callie squealed as we walked down the hall.

“Hey Zaira.” Matt said as we passed him.

“Hey Matt. Good luck tonight.” I said back as I stopped and turned to face him.

“Are you coming to the game?” Matt asked as he caught up to us.

“Of course. My cousin and best friend play.” I said with a smile.

“Cool. I guess I’ll see you then.” Matt said with a smile before walking to the locker room.

“He totally likes you.” Callie said as we headed to my car.

“How can you tell?” I asked as I drove us to her house.

“He was totally flirting with you. I think it’s cute.” Callie replied with a huge smile.

I laughed at her as I dropped her off and headed home to change. When I got home, I took a shower, got in my pajamas, and went to find something to wear to the game.

After I got dressed, I headed out to my car, picked up Callie, and headed back to the school. We picked seats not too far from the bench.

I brought Callie up to speed and told her that I was going to go with Stiles to get the beastiary. She agreed and we waited till the time came.

The game was getting pretty gruesome because the other team’s player was huge, and I don’t mean fat, I mean buffed. This dude was bigger than Derek, but little compared to Boyd, who by the way was at the game, along with Erica. I smiled and waved at them, and they did the same.

I followed Stiles as he got up from the bench and headed towards Allison and Gerard. When he got the keys, we ran to the parking lot, but stopped when we heard Lydia crying in her car. I went a little ahead of Stiles, so he could talk to her.

I didn’t wait long because Stiles came running to me and we both ran inside the school and straight to Gerard’s office. We ransacked the place before Stiles jumped 20 ft. in the air, when he saw Erica standing at the door.

“Hello Stiles, Zaira.” Erica said as Stiles and I looked from each other to her.

I knew where this was probably going, and I hoped that nothing severely bad happens.

Erica grabbed Stiles by the ear and Stiles grabbed my wrist, and Erica, who was basically dragging us both, dragged us to the pool hall, where Derek was waiting for us.

“Stiles. Zaira.” Derek said as he looked at us.

 “Derek.” Stiles and I said at the same time.

“What did you see at the mechanic’s garage?” Derek asked Stiles.

I knew what Derek meant because Callie had told me that Stiles told her that some reptile type thing attacked and killed the mechanic. I didn’t want to believe it, but after the strange deaths that have been occurring, I wouldn’t doubt it now.

“Uhhhh… Several alarming EPA violations that I’m seriously considering reporting.” Stiles replied.

Derek and Erica chuckled before Derek deflated a basketball with his claws.

“Holy God.” Stiles said as Derek dropped the deflated ball.

“Let’s try that again.” Derek said as he looked at us and smirked.

“Alright, the thing was pretty slick looking. Umm... Skin was dark, kind of patterned. I think I actually saw scales. Is that enough? Ok? ‘Cause I have somebody I really need to talk to.” Stiles said as he looked at Derek.

I couldn’t believe that Stiles was worried about talking to Lydia, than possibly saving countless lives, and talking to his own girlfriend.

Derek gave Stiles a look to tell him that what he said wasn’t enough.

Stiles growled before continuing, “All right, fine. Eyes. Eyes are yellowish and slitted. Umm… It has a lot of teeth. Oh, and it’s got a tail, too. Are we good?” Stiles asked as he looked at Derek and Erica.

I noticed that they were looking up, so I turned around and glanced up, and saw a creature type thing looking down at us.

“What? What, have you seen it? You have this look on your face like you know exactly what I’m talking about.” Stiles said before the thing hissed, and Stiles turned around to see the creature.

The creature jumped down and Derek crouched down and roared. The creature attacked Erica and tossed her across the room. Derek turned around, shoved Stiles, who shoved me, yelling for us to run, before getting cut in the neck.

“Derek, your neck.” Stiles said as Derek reached up to touch his neck before he became paralyzed. Stiles caught him, and I helped them move before Stiles dropped his phone. He tried to pick it up, but let Derek go in the process, who ended up pulling me into the pool with him.

I tried to swim to the surface with him, but he was too heavy. Thank goodness when I tried again, Stiles jumped in and helped me.

“Don’t ever do that again.” I said as I looked at Stiles.

Stiles tried to swim to his phone, but Derek stopped him.

I was starting to get scared, but I tried not to let it show.

“What the hell is that thing?” I asked as I turned my head enough to look at Stiles.

“I have no idea, Zaira.” Stiles replied.

I don’t know how long we stayed in the pool because I lost track of time. I zoned out through most of it because I didn’t want to face reality at the moment.

I was pulled back to reality when Stiles let Derek go to go get his phone. I tried to hold Derek up and I was succeeding till my legs grew tired, and I let him go. I dove back under to get him and tried to bring him back up, but that didn’t work because I couldn’t pick him up off the floor of the pool. Stiles finally dove back under and pulled Derek up.

We gasped for air, and I swear I was awake the whole time, but I guess I passed out from when Stiles and I carried Derek to the diving board, and when we got there we couldn’t grip the bars, so we slide under water, only to be pulled out by Scott. I was so happy to see him.

After Scott fought the creature, it ran off, and we walked out of the school fine. I was wrapped up in an extra jacket that Scott had in the car.

Scott and Stiles were looking through the beastiary, but couldn’t read a single word.

“Is that even a language?” Stiles asked.

“How are we supposed to figure out what this thing is?” Scott asked back.

“It’s called the Kanima.” Derek said as he and Erica walked up.

“You knew the whole time.” Stiles said.

“No. Only when it was confused by its own reflection.” Derek said back.

“It doesn’t know what it is.” Scott said.

“Or who.” Derek finished for Scott.

“What else do you know?” Stiles asked Derek.

“Just stories. Rumors.” Derek replied.

“But it’s like us?” Scott asked.

“It’s a shape shifter, yes. But it-it’s not right. It’s like a…” Derek said, but couldn't find the word to finish his sentence.

“An abomination.” Stiles finished for Derek.

Derek nodded his head before he and Erica turned around and tried to walk off.

“Derek.” Scott said and that made them stop.

“We need to work together on this. Maybe even tell the Argents.” Scott said and I knew that, that would set Derek off.

“You trust them.” Derek said while trying to keep his cool.

“Nobody trusts anyone. That’s the problem. While we’re here arguing about who’s on what side, there’s something scarier, stronger, and faster than any of us, and it’s killing people! And we still don’t know anything about it!” Scott said getting angrier by the second.

“I know one thing. When I find it, I’m gonna kill it.” Derek said before he turned around and walked off with Erica.

I looked at Scott and Stiles and hugged them both. They hugged me back and we stayed like that for a few minutes. I was glad that we were alive and well.

As Scott drove me home, we got to talking about everything.

“I hope you don’t mind, but I followed Callie here after the game, and carried her home after she dropped off your car.” Scott said as we pulled up to my house.

“I don’t mind at all and thanks for the ride.” I said back as Scott handed me my keys before I got and headed inside.

Today was weird, but I’m thankful that I’m alive. I walked up to my room and took a shower. When I got out, I changed into my pajamas and went straight to bed, not knowing that I was being watched by the Kanima.
