I do not own Teen Wolf or Twilight. Read and then review. To everyone asking what the hashtags are in this and the other TEEN WOLF story. They are just for fun. It’s something they usually do at the beginning or end of the episodes.
Derek pulled back the covers and gazed upon Bella’s body. He swallowed back as he took his fingers and ran them down her arm, waist, and thigh. He couldn’t get over how sexy she was and how much her body had blossomed. Derek kissed along her shoulder and the scars on her back. To his surprise Bella was smiling as she stretched out.
“Derek?” She uttered as if in disbelief.
She looked confused at first as she gathered where they were exactly. Bella didn’t even remember how they got to her house. In fact she didn’t remember much else after the lake. She figured she must’ve fallen asleep.
Derek caressed her cheek and kissed her. Only neither of them could pull away. Bella literally felt Derek swell up and he began to throb against her sex. Part of her though was apprehensive, remembering last night. Derek stopped and lifted his eyes towards her. She wasn’t aware of how strong their mating bond would be. They’d be able to sense one another now, especially on Derek’s behalf. He’d be able to read Bella now like an open book.
“It’s not going to hurt.” He expressed softly with somewhat of an egotistical smirk about him.
Bella narrowed her eyes on this. She let out a moan as he ground himself against her. He breathed in her arousal and Derek’s eyes flickered for a moment. A low growl escaped his lips as he nuzzled against her neck. Derek’s scent was all over her now. She officially belonged to him now. That had him beyond riled up. This would be a learning experience for Derek as well. He wasn’t even quite sure how to go about having a mate. She was damn near his wife now at least in the nature of being part animal. In the werewolf sense she was. That felt odd to him. He’d never had this feeling before. Yet he found himself accepting it and for some reason more at ease.
Derek continued to warm her up to the idea. He rubbed himself against her until he could feel her wetness. He kept going until he eventually had her so wet, he slithered right on in. Bella gasped out in surprise. He sucked on her breasts as he began to stroke himself within her tight core. Bella wrapped her legs around him and Derek could feel her spreading even more. His cock went in even deeper.
“Derek…” She cried out in pleasure.
He tauntingly went slower. He wanted to see just how far he could push her. Derek nipped along her neck as he did this. He could feel her hips lifting off the bed as she fought for more friction. He cruelly forced her back down so she couldn’t move.
“Derek!” She hissed in a scolding matter.
He softly chuckled. His eyes widen though as Bella managed to roll over. She was now on top and her tits were right in his face.
“…fuck…” He growled out.
Bella began to literally ride his cock. He feverishly sucked on her breasts. As much as he loved the way this felt. He wanted to get his point across that HE was alpha. So Derek rolled her back over and pinned her wrists down. He fucked her even harder. He slammed into her with everything he had. Bella’s entire bed shook and the headboard repeatedly knocked against the wall.
“Come harder Bella I want to fucking feel it!”
Her eyes widened. But her body completely caved in to his demands. Derek’s dick became saturated. At first he wasn’t sure about the whole virgin thing. He felt a bit on edge about it and the fact that she was a good six years younger than he. But now he was on fire. That innocence only sparked his lust and drive. She was his to shape and mold when it came to sex. Derek was her only basis for comparison. He wanted to prove he was well worth the wait. While at the same time turn her into his personal sex craving slave. After all she was HIS mate. Something he didn’t take lightly. Bella hadn’t a clue what she was in for.
Bella once again tried to get the upper hand. He shook his head and pulled out. He positioned her to all fours. She was giving him the perfect kitty shot and he couldn’t help himself. He wanted to see more so he placed a finger inside and fingered her. He’d spread her about every once in awhile getting to know his new home. She was so pink, warm, and inviting he couldn’t help but to mount her. He knew he was going to have to work with her on who ran the show so to speak. She was too independent for her own good and forgetting who she was dealing with. But deep down Derek loved the challenge and found it a huge turn on. He liked how stubborn she could be. It showed she had a damn mind of her own and didn’t let anyone fuck with her. That’s the kind of mate Derek needed and wanted. She cried out his name once again. Derek’s dick throbbed intensely. He needed to come for sometime, but had been holding back. He wanted Bella to have the full experience after her rough transition last night. Derek felt as though he damn near raped her. He hated that part but it was in their nature and part of the whole mating ritual. That was all over and done now. He’d planned to more than make it up to her. Derek gritted his teeth as he started to come.
He quickly pulled out and came across her ass. He reached over and grabbed a tissue from her nightstand and wiped her off. She rolled over once he was done. Derek watched as she reached out and pulled out a drawer. She took a birth control pill and shut the drawer back. He rather sighed in relief. That was why he pulled out. He was too far gone last night to even think about fucking protection. He rolled his eyes and plopped down on her bed.
Bella looked to him oddly.
“So you always get moody after sex?”
He smirks and folds his arms about his chest.
They both snapped to attention though as a car door slammed. Bella’s eyes widened with alarm.
Bella hopped up as she heard the front door open. She grabbed Derek’s clothes and tossed them into the closet. He reared back looking to her as if she’d lost her mind. Bella grabbed him by the arm as he took his time getting out of the bed. She shoved Derek into the closet.
“Really?” He hissed as she shut the door.
Her heart raced as she hurriedly put on her pjs and rushed back to the bed. Sure enough there was a knock at her door. Bella took in a breath and pretended as though she’d just waken.
“Yeah?” She called out.
“Can I come in?”
“Um sure…” She said praying to god nothing of Derek’s was left out.
She covered up and Charlie entered the room.
“Did I wake you?”
“Late night.” She says with a shrug.
“Look I won’t keep ya. I just… Just be careful out there. It seems like some of the stuff we were dealing with back in Forks is here too.”
Bella’s heart rather jumped at this.
“How do you mean dad?”
“Bells hun, we found a couple of bodies last night, teenagers at that.”
“Seems these things exist no matter where you go.”
“What kind of markings did they have?”
“Damn near like those shifters back in Forks. Only the shifters weren’t killing innocent people.”
“Just don’t go out into the woods alone. I mean it Bells! No Red Riding Hood episodes here. I want you to be safe!”
Bella wanted to laugh at the irony of his comment.
“Red Riding Hood huh?”
Charlie goes to exit her room.
“What if…” She stops herself and bites on her lower lip.
“What if what?”
“Nevermind. Get some rest dad.”
“Something on your mind?”
“Nope, just tired that’s all.”
“Get some more sleep then. I’m about to hit the hay.”
Charlie pulls her door shut as he exits the room. Bella waits until she hears her father’s door shut. She then hops up and rushes over to the closet. Derek was sitting in corner of her closet fully dressed now. Looking annoyed as hell.
“Took you long enough.”
“Would you rather have my father walk in and seeing you butt naked in my room?”
He doesn’t comment and comes to his feet. Bella gasped back as he gently pushed her up against the wall. Derek kissed her and hiked up one of her legs as he did. When he was done he lowered her leg back down and exited the closet. Derek headed for the window.
“I’ll see you around.”
“I’ll see you around?” She questions with a scowl.
Derek motions his head about with slight frustration. It’d been too long for him. He hadn’t a clue how to act exactly. Any relationship he had since Paige was merely sexual and nothing much ever came of it. When it even got close the girl either ended up leaving town or dying on him. So yeah he was fucking lost as hell. He ran his fingers through his hair looking uncomfortable. Bella rolled her eyes.
“Nevermind. I’ll see ya Derek.”
“Well you can sense me right?” He says as if getting snippy.
She looks to him oddly.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Well if you can sense me you already know how I feel. Don’t go getting all…”
“All what?!” She whispers harshly.
“Needy.” He replied but was merely trying to get under her skin. He knew she was the furthest thing from needy. Erica… now she was needy and also very pissed with him. She’d left him not so pleasant of a message in fact about his denying her.
Just as he assumed she would. Bella rushed over about to haul off and slap the living shit out of him. He chuckled as he blocked the attempt.
“You’re such an jerk!”
He cleared his throat and wrapped his arms around her.
“Just calm down… I’m learning as we go. I didn’t expect all this. I wasn’t even looking for a mate Bella. You just popped up and it’s taking some getting used to, that’s all. Just give me a chance.”
“You think I was?”
He shakes his head.
“I know you weren’t. But I can also sense you… I just…”
He pinches the bridge of his nose.
“Everyone around me gets hurt or dies. I’ve lost family, friends, and a lover. So yeah, I need some time to sort all this out. Despite what you think I am not all that coldhearted and I do give a shit.”
“Well when do I get to hear your story? And the story behind the symbol on your back?”
He narrowed his eyes and tilted his head a bit.
“It’s only fair, you know damn near everything about me. You’re my alpha and mate Derek, yet I don’t know hardly anything about you.”
“The symbol is a triskelion. It stands for the three types of werewolves such as the alpha, beta and omega. It’s a reminder of that while we can always rise we can also fall. A beta becoming an alpha and that alpha can eventually fall back down to an omega. Although some use it as a sign of revenge. It can mean something different depending on the person.”
Bella nodded as she got her answer at least about that. She just wasn’t so sure if he’d open up about anything else.
“Powerful stuff isn’t it?”
She looks to him puzzled. He shrugs.
“This whole mating thing… ” He leads her back to the bed and they lay back down.
“You can’t even think clearly. Really knocks you for a loop. I knew the moment I met you. That pull was already there. I didn’t want to fix your truck, Bella. I didn’t even want to deal with you. Like I said people around me, they get hurt. They die… So I learned to keep to myself. I suppose in a way I ran off my old pack. At times, I feel as if I do better on my own. I don’t have to worry about hurting anyone and visa versa. But I knew there was nothing I could do. The moment I witnessed what Jackson was trying to pull. I already knew. I knew you didn’t belong to fucking Jackson, Peter, or that idiotic vampire. Bella their only pulls to you was purely sexual. You have this way about you that makes men think about mating. But it’s not anything you’re consciously doing. It’s just something within you. The way you smell, look, and how you carry yourself. None of which are your fault. Some women just have it, other’s don’t. This is something that’s usually recognized by the time she hits puberty. Like I said you’re not even aware. And now that you’re a werewolf; it’s only going to heighten that appeal. If Jackson or Peter had mated with you. You’d have been nothing more than a controlled sex slave to them. Hell worse, if you became my uncle’s mate. He’d have you be at his every command and I do mean every.
Peter as your alpha and mate? You’d have no choice but to do as ordered. If he told you to go kill someone you’d have to do it. If he told you to perform some sort of sexual act you’d have to. No matter how much you tried to deny it your body would have forced you to cave in. It’s that powerful. You would have been sired to him. He bit you, he was alpha, and could have ended up as your mate; a very dangerous combination. You’re not going to like me from time to time. I do what I feel is best and go from there. I take orders from no one. And I have no problem dealing with my own mate if you were to ever get out of line. Bella, you’re not just something I’m merely using for entertainment purposes. Now did I like the idea of being nailed down to someone? Hell no! But not because of you personally, now I want you to get that straight. The only real issue I see between us; is that you’re still young. There is a six year gap between us and you’re still in school. You live with your fucking father. Something I’m really going to have to get used to and take into account. I have to keep him in mind when dealing with you. In fact anyone that is a friend or family of yours is my concern as well now. No matter if they hate my living guts and such as your father. This mating thing though is for life. We will have a connection that no one can break. That’s what I have to work on. This wasn’t planned you just came into town and … there was nothing either of us could do. It wasn’t something that could be stopped. I don’t want you thinking that this is anything like what Peter or Jackson thought they felt. It’s entirely different.
Say one of them did succeed such as Jackson for example. It would have made things between you and me ten times worse. The connection would have still been there, because we have a true mating bond. Unlike theirs which would have been forced. Which means either way I would have ended up killing one or the other. Because whether nor you like it or not or anyone else for that matter… you were mine from the beginning.” She frowns and rolls her eyes.
“You truly are something else Bella.”
“Hmmmm… so very, very tempting.”
He leans in and softly bites down on her neck. She smiles and shakes her head.
“Why is it that I have to BELONG to you? Like is there no equality?”
“If we were human sure… But you’re no longer human. The same rules don’t apply.” He clears his throat.
“Besides say we were human and we ended up married or something anyhow. We both pretty much know, I’d still run the show.”
Derek grins and quickly pins her down before she has a chance to hit him.
“Admit it! Deep down you like it!”
“No, I don’t.”
“Hmmm…. I would if daddy wasn’t home. We’re taking a risk as it is. I really don’t want to heal from a bullet wound.”
Bella softly laughs.
“So you do have a fear…”
“Not too keen on guns especially when they’re aimed at me. But that’s not my biggest fear…”
He sighs and rolls back over. He looks to the ceiling.
“I’m not too keen on the idea of losing someone else I care about. So just do me a favor…”
She rises and looks to him concerned.
“If it ever becomes too much for you… Don’t ever ask me to end it. I won’t be able to. You’ll have to find someone else to put you out of your misery.”
Bella looked to him bewildered.
“Why would you say that? I mean… is that what happened to you?”
He closes his eyes for a moment.
“It doesn’t matter. It was a long time ago.”
“Derek… you can’t keep doing this. You have to let me in at some point.”
“You remind me of her. To be honest that’s why I was so pissed off about all this whole mating thing. Like you… Paige was beautiful, smart….” He half laughs and shakes his head.
“She too hated me… or so she claimed. You share the same color eyes and hair…” Bella couldn’t help but to notice he looked so sad.
Bella listened without interruption as Derek told her about Paige. His high school sweetheart more or less. He tells her about how they met about their awkward relationship and how it tragically ended. By the time Derek was done Bella found herself wiping away a few tears of her own. She leaned back against the headboard feeling ill. She now understood why Derek was well… Derek.
“I’m sorry…” She says with a lump in her throat softly feeling stupid as if knowing that’s not even the right words. But she didn’t know any. What do you say to that?
“I will do whatever it takes to keep you alive. Even if that means I must protect you from yourself. Such as if you go off and do something completely foolish. I won’t have you dying on me. So don’t test my patience. If I tell you no about something it’s for a good damn reason. Yes I will be possessive, overly protective, and will piss you the fuck off. But if it keeps you alive then that’s all that matters. So I hope you’re prepared. Often enough you’re going to hate me more than you love me.”
“Who says I love you now?”
He gets that mischievous grin again.
“I wanted you to train me remember? That’s all this is.” She taunts.
He raises his brows on this sensing she was so full of shit.
“So you’re using me?”
“You let me turn you into my mate just so I’d train you?”
“Then why didn’t you just offer to let me fuck you instead? I mean you pretty much got the raw end of the deal.”
She looks to him oddly.
“Having sex doesn’t complete the mating ritual… not necessarily. It’s a little deeper than that. It’s also up here” he points to his head “that takes place when I leave my mark. That’s why I said there would be no stopping me once I started. My mind was elsewhere and it was focused on you becoming my mate nothing else. So when I left my mark. That’s what truly set it in stone. Fucking now that’s something different. It just makes the mating process a lot more… interesting.” He says with that dark smile still about his face.
“So you’re saying if I wanted you to train me. I could have just offered you my virginity.”
“Not so much your virginity just sex in general. Though I will admit, I took immense pleasure in that as well.”
“I could tell.”
“Hmmm. And it wouldn’t have probably mattered I probably would have ended up taking matters into my own hands if we became sexual.” He taunts.
“So you would have marked me against my will?”
“Is that what we’re claiming? Then I suppose either way you would have been pissed. Something, that seems to be a reoccurrence with you.”
“You have such a way with words.”
He rolls over and faces her.
“And you thought I was incapable of love.”
Her jaw drops and he winks.
“Wait, you heard all that?!”
He narrows his eyes and covers her mouth.
“Shh… daddy remember?”
She sighs against his hand.
“And yeah I did…”
“I can’t believe you were eavesdropping.”
“I can’t believe you think so low of me.”
“Can you blame me?”
“The only real pleasant thing you had to say about me was how sweet I was for fixing your truck. Which doesn’t say a whole lot about me, now does it? Considering, I didn’t even want to do that.”
“Yes you did.”
“Um no, I didn’t.”
“Yes, you did.” She insists.
“Once again, you’re so wrong.”
“Face it Derek. If you didn’t, then why the hell did you go all out? I know you fixed more than just the damn radiator. Hell you practically rebuilt the entire engine. I’m not that ignorant when it comes to vehicles.”
“Your truck was a piece of shit that was going to wind up getting you killed. So yeah, I fixed it the proper way instead of half ass, because that’s how I do things.”
“You did it, because you wanted to show an act of kindness.”
He rolls his eyes.
“Don’t do that.”
Derek swallows and takes back a breath.
“You’re just making it harder to leave.”
Bella looks to him with a hint of shock. She sensed him right there. Her heart literally skipped a beat. He comes to his feet. He then leans over and kisses her once more.
“I better get. It seems I got some investigating of my own to do.” He hints.
She nods in understanding. But was still taken back by what she was sensing. She couldn’t get over how strong it was. Derek goes to leap out but pauses.
“If something happens and you can’t call or text me. You can always call to me…” He hints.
“Call to you?”
“Like the other day when I called you to the woods.”
At this he jumps down and takes off.
“You seem different.”
Stiles says as he peeks over his locker at Bella. Bella shrugs. Stiles tilts his head and shakes a finger upon her.
“What is it?”
“I haven’t a clue what you’re talking about.”
“Nah… there’s something…”
Bella shuts her locker.
“Like?” She inquires as they head to class.
“Happy… it’s creepy.”
She stops and looks to him as if offended.
“So me being happy is creepy?!”
“A little bit.”
“Well I’ll try and work on that.”
“I wish you would!”
“So no smiling. Act like a bitch. And smack you around like one every once in a while?”
Bella breaks into laughter and Stiles grins.
“I knew you’d see it my way.”
Bella and Stiles take their seats. He clears his throat and leans over.
“Besides it’s not fair for you to get laid if I’m not.”
Her jaw drops.
He winks and leans back in his seat.
“HA, I KNEW IT!”
“Shut the fuck up!”
He rears back and Bella quickly covers her mouth.
“Well Ms. Swan, do tell each of us how you feel.” Mr. Harrison snaps as he twirls about in his chair.
Bella sighs. Bella rolls her eyes as he writes her name on the board like they were in elementary.
“You will be seeing me for detention.”
He raises his brows on this.
“Ok make that for tomorrow as well.”
“I’m free Wednesday as well.”
Stiles jaw drops.
“What are you doing?”
“He’s pissing me off.”
Mr. Harrison slams his hands down on his desk.
“On a roll Ms. Swan.”
Bella nods and takes out her book.
“Anything else you’d like to announce to the class.”
“Are you sure?”
He nods. Bella raises her brows and points to his zipper.
The entire class looks to her in disbelief. A few students were laughing. Bella pinches the bridge of her nose.
“What’s wrong with you?” Stiles whispers in utter shock.
“I don’t know….” She hisses as if struggling to contain herself.
“Well whatever it is, make it stop.” He damn near pleads for her sake seeing the look on Mr. Harrison’s face.
“I’m trying…” She says with desperation.
Stiles eyes widen.
“Eyes…” He warns in a whisper.
Bella quickly covers her eyes and looks down. Mr. Harrison marches over to her desk with a pass to the principal’s office.
“Do have a good chat!”
He pats her on the shoulder.
Bella shoots to her feet and rushes out of the room. She hurriedly heads to the bathroom and locks herself inside. She looks into the mirror and sees how her eyes were still glowing.
“What the hell?”
She hurriedly begins to splash some cold water on her face.
Bella froze. She looked around the bathroom sensing something; she just wasn’t sure what it was. It was some sort of distress. Bella began to check each of the stalls. The feeling grew heavier and a wave of desperation came over her. Bella literally began to kick at each door as the feeling became overwhelming.
“WHERE ARE YOU?!”
Bella got to the last stall and a wave of shock hit.
She was against the corner of the stall. Her eyes were closed and she had claw like marks going down her arms and legs.
Bella hurriedly scooped her up and rushed her out of the stall. She laid her on the floor and hurriedly grabbed some paper towels. She began to wet them and placed them on Lydia’s forehead and neck. Bella felt for a pulse and picked up a faint detection.
“Come on Lydia.”
Bella gently slapped at her cheeks.
Bella gasped out as a new set of claw marks appeared across Lydia’s face. Lydia whimpered out in her sleep.
“Shit! Lydia hun, I really need you to wake the fuck up now!”
Bella grabbed her shoulders and went to shake her awake.
BELLA Bella screamed out as Peter’s face appeared but she was seeing it through Lydia.
He starts laughing.
So it works… He says with a certain dark tone.
Good deal… it seems the two of you need to get a tad more acquainted.
Bella grits her teeth as she and Lydia’s bodies begin to involuntarily scoot back at great force. Bella wrapped herself around Lydia protectively bracing for impact. Bella groaned out as she took the full hit. She was literally hugging Lydia now doing her best to keep her from getting hurt. Lydia’s entire body jolted and she gasped for air.
Bella swallowed back as Lydia began to break down. Bella merely held her not sure what else to do. She hadn’t a clue what the hell that was or what was going on.
“He won’t leave me alone.”
Bella narrows her eyes.
“HE WON’T!” Lydia pulls at her hair and Bella holds her tighter.
“Shhh…. I got you.”
Lydia continues to sob for a bit longer.
“How long has this been going on Lydia?”
Bella however took notice of something on her shoulder. She lowered her sleeve and saw the bite mark. However it looked old like it was damn near scarring now.
“Did someone bite you?”
She took a single finger to the bite mark. Lydia came to a stand and paced the bathroom.
Bella came to her feet as well and ran her fingers through her hair.
“He wants you.” Lydia says pointing to Bella.
“But he can’t get to you without going through me.”
“You know who.”
“Say it Lydia! Say it so I know we’re talking about the right damn person!”
“PETER HALE!” Lydia shouts in her face.
Lydia quickly covers her mouth.
“I’m sorry…” Lydia softly says looking confused.
Bella shut her eyes for a moment.
“So he’s doing this to you… to get to me?”
Lydia nods. Bella nods in return.
“But why you?”
Lydia smiles and nods again with her lips pressed together.
“Because I’m the only one that he can summon at the moment. “
“Peter Hale is dead. He’s been dead.”
Lydia shakes her head.
“No he isn’t.”
“Yes he is. Trust me… he’s no more. He doesn’t even exist.”
“DOES THIS LOOK LIKE HE DOESN’T EXIST?!”
She shows her the claw marks along the rest of her body. They reminded Bella of the marking from when a dog would jump on you and drag their claws across your body. They were a light shade of pink.
“Every time I fall asleep it’s like I’m being visited by Freddy Krueger!”
“For how long…”
“Three maybe four days tops. Only these…” Lydia motions towards the marks along her body.
“Why were you sleeping in the bathroom?”
“I’m not sure. Bella, I don’t even remember coming in here. I thought I was in class.”
Bella pinches her eyes shut for a moment.
“So… he’s torturing you in order to get my attention?”
Lydia nodded with a grimace.
Bella reared back at this.
“You’re sorry? Hell Lydia, you’re the one being attacked!”
“He’s pretty mad…” Lydia admits.
“Oh I imagine so! The son of a bitch must be really fucking pissed. But what the hell does he want? I mean none of this makes sense. HE’S DEAD! I mean what does the bastard expect? For me to me buried with him?!”
They turn to a knock at the door. Bella clears her throat.
“Who is it?”
“Oh come on…” Bella groans.
Bella gently places her hand on Lydia’s shoulder.
“I’m going to figure this out ok. I promise. He’s not getting away with this.”
Lydia looks to her oddly but nods. The moment Bella opens the door Mr. Harrison grabs her by the arm and starts dragging her to the office. She jerks out of his hold and sits herself down.
“You think just because daddy’s a cop you can get away with this behavior.”
“I’ve got my eye on you Ms. Swan.”
“Easy now Mr. Harrison, I’m not so sure how to take that.” She utters hintingly.
His eyes widen and he hurriedly steps out. Bella smiles to herself.
“Suspended! FOR THREE DAYS?!”
Bella winces as her father bangs on the steering wheel on the way home.
“What the hell has come over you kid?”
He looks to her in full disbelief.
He slams his hand on the stirring wheel once more and grits his teeth.
“HORMONES?! You destruct school property and cuss out a teacher because you’re having hormone issues?”
“Well for starters I didn’t actually cause the destruction in the bathroom and I didn’t cuss Mr. Harrison out. He overheard me cussing.”
“And that’s supposed to make it better?”
Charlie pulls up to the house.
“You’re to go straight to your room! Where you will stay for the entire three days! I mean it Bells! You’re in hot water this time.”
Bella pinches her eyes shut.
“I’m sorry dad I…”
“I just don’t know what’s come over you. This isn’t even you.”
“Ever think that maybe I’m just not that same girl from Forks?”
“So you’re lashing out? Is that it? You’re going rebellious on me?!”
“Just go. I gotta get back to work. We’re in over our heads as it is and I don’t have time to sit here and have this little debate with you. I mean it Bells you’re not to leave the house under any circumstances. I love you kiddo, but I just don’t know what’s come over you lately.”
Bella nods and opens her door. Charlie takes off leaving a trail of dirt behind as he was heading back to the area of the case he was on.
“…dammit…” Bella whispers in misery and heads on inside.
Stiles steps out of the building to see Derek leaning against his Jeep. His arms were folded about his chest. Stiles takes in a deep breath.
“…oh boy…” He mutters under his breath.
Derek nodded towards him and was looking around.
Stiles shrugs. Derek raises his brows and lowers his shades.
“Where… is… Bella?”
Stiles sighs and brings up Bella’s message she’d sent him at lunch.
Thanks to douchebag Harrison I’ve been suspended for three fucking days! My father’s having a complete meltdown! Btw we need to talk ASAP! Only I can’t leave the damn house now. So you’re going to have to come by. I suppose becoming a mime during school might keep me from dropping the F-bomb during class. Later!
“I particularly liked the mime part. That could prove to be quite entertaining.”
Derek rolls his eyes.
“Great, so I’m mated to a mime.”
Stiles looked upon Derek in utter bewilderment.
“Funny, I thought you said mated.”
Derek bitterly hands Stiles his phone back.
“I’ll meet you there.”
“Um ok…” Stiles says as Derek hops into his Camaro.
Stiles pulls up next to Derek as he naturally beat him there. Derek looked around for any signs of Charlie. He noticed his squad car wasn’t at the station or the house.
“If you’re looking for the Chief; he and my dad are out on a case. More bodies were discovered today.”
Derek nods and he heads on to the door. He rolls his eyes as it wasn’t even locked. He steps on inside.
“Um sure. Why would we need to knock? You’re right breaking into a cop’s house when he lives right across from the police station is the perfect crime!?” Stiles smarts as he follows Derek upstairs.
Just as Derek was about to knock on her actual bedroom door. The door opened.
“Holy….” Stiles whispered and merely gawked.
Bella’s eyes widen. Derek raised his brows and lowered his shades. She hurriedly slams the door and reaches for her robe. Bella was just about to head to the shower so she was completely topless. She shakes her head with a massive blush and opens the door again.
“So… that happened…” Stiles remarks and Derek smacks him in the back of the head.
“Ow, you’re the one that didn’t knock to begin with!”
Bella cuts Derek a go to hell look.
“What the hell Derek?”
He steps inside and plops down on her bed. Stiles wiggled his brows as he entered.
“Ugh, really Stiles?!”
“Quit looking at me like that.”
“Kind of hard not to now.”
“You know we have a doorbell! Or you could knock!”
“Blame the big guy.”
“Derek…” She hisses.
He sighs and takes off his shades.
“How was I supposed to know you’d be topless?”
“It’s my house and my bedroom. What do you think I do all day?”
“Wait, are you saying you run around topless all day.”
Even Derek smirked at this.
“Yes Stiles, that’s exactly what I’m saying.”
“…oh… Are you a one room nudist?!”
Bella rolls her eyes.
“If you two don’t mind invading my privacy for a few minutes. I’d like take a quick shower.”
“Sure we’ll be right behind you!”
Stiles rears back realizing what he said.
“What do you think is going to happen?”
Stiles sighs and twirls around in the chair.
“Are you admitting you have some feelings for Derek?!” She fake gasp and throws a pillow at Stiles.
“I meant I… I’ll be right behind you.” Only he flinched realizing that was about to get him in even more trouble.
Derek let out a growl and his eyes became alpha red. Stiles let’s out a nervous laugh.
“Relax… she’s not even my type! Besides I don’t believe in outer species relationships! Or bestiality for that matter.”
“Bestiality? Really Stiles?!” Bella snaps with her lip curled.
“Well what would you call it?”
“Stiles staying a virgin for eternity that’s what!”
“Are you saying that I’m the only one left of my kind?”
“YES!” Derek and Bella chorus.
“Fine, I’ll just get on your computer and go through your history instead.”
“Whatever… just stay out of my things.”
“Why? Do you have a porn stash somewhere?”
“You know nothing about women obviously.”
“Don’t they make Playgirls?”
“Do I look like someone that reads freaking Playgirl?”
“Right…” Stiles utters with a grin.
“At least you can admit it’s not for the articles.”
“ERRRRRR!” Bella slams her door as she heads to the bathroom.
“You’re so lucky…” Stiles says sarcastically.
“Derek, don’t turn your back on him.” They hear Bella say as the bathroom door shut.
Derek looked over to Stiles after a few minutes had passed.
“Get out of that.”
“What? Like you’re not curious as to what she does when she’s on here.”
He sighs though as if bored.
“This girl has no life. She doesn’t even Facebook.”
“She doesn’t what?”
“You know Facebook…”
“What century are you from again?”
Derek cocks a brow at this.
“Right… So you two are made for each other!”
“Is that computer what’s going to be responsible for your black eye?”
Stiles slowly turns.
Derek hops up as if he was about to lay him out. Stiles falls back in the chair. Bella had just opened the door to see Stiles lying on the floor. She narrows her eyes upon Derek.
“Huh… so you really did fall for Derek.” She wits and offers him a hand up.
Stiles groans dejectedly as she helps him back to his feet.
Bella sits down on the edge of the bed. Her hair was still damp and dripping onto her navy blue tank top. It was driving Derek insane with lust. He buried his face into her pillow for a moment only that didn’t help. Her scent was caked into it. Bella sensed Derek and started to softly laugh.
“What?” Stiles questioned.
“Nothing… So… have you talked to Lydia today?”
“Um no, from what I heard she went home early.”
Bella nods and comes back to her feet.
“You once told me that Allison and Lydia knew Scott McCall’s secret?”
“How’d that go again…?” She utters rather rhetorically.
Bella closes her curtains and pulls her door shut. Derek curiously rose at this.
“What is Lydia?”
Stiles looks to her oddly.
“One of the hottest girls in school?”
“Can you stop thinking with your dick for five minutes?”
“Two things, I’m a guy and a virgin.”
“Then get a hooker or something but for now focus!”
“What I mean is… Does Lydia have a secret as well?”
“As far as I know she’s just as normal as I am.”
“I don’t think she is…”
Bella leaned against the wall for a moment.
“She had a bite mark… pretty gruesome looking one to. From the looks of it. This bite is at least a week or so old. It was healing but didn’t look very pretty.”
Bella lifts her eyes towards Derek.
“When you killed Peter Hale how exactly did you go about it?”
“I punctured his throat and set him ablaze.” Derek says with a shrug.
“And you’re positive he didn’t walk away from that.”
“What if I told you he’s haunting Lydia Martin in order to get my attention?”
Derek narrowed his eyes.
“Not just any haunting Derek. Whatever this is… if it is Peter…”
Bella shook her head.
“He’s attacking her in her sleep. She’s covered in claw marks. Nothing too life threatening, but… I saw it happen myself. She was sound asleep and these claw marks just appeared on her face. When I came into contact with Lydia, I saw Peter. He said something along the lines of it working and good deal. How Lydia and I needed to get more acquainted. Lydia made it sound as if he’s using her to get my attention. For whatever reason, Peter can’t target me personally. So he’s using Lydia in order to do so. She said something along the lines of her being the only one he could summon. Do either of you have any idea what that means?”
The both of them shake their heads. Bella goes into more detail about what all took place.
“Whatever this can’t continue… I won’t have Lydia being tormented on my behalf. It’s just not happening. If this really is Peter he knows where to find me.”
Derek grits his teeth.
“Not an option!”
“Neither is Lydia Martin paying on my behalf!”
“It’s better than you!’
He snarls back.
“I killed the bastard! So whatever this is. It’s not Peter!”
“Then what else could it be?”
“Hell if I know but it’s not him! He was nothing more than charcoal! Ashes even!”
“This can’t be ignored. He’s hurting her! You didn’t see what I saw! He could wind up killing her!”
Bella’s cell rings and she quickly answers it.
“Just checking in.”
“I’m home dad.”
“I can see that, but who’s cars do I see parked out in front.”
“Um that would be Stiles.”
“And who else?”
“Ummm Stiles’s cousin Miguel?”
Derek rolls his eyes. And gives her that certain glare.
“So you’re alone with two boys at the house?”
“Because I know how to use protection?”
Bella hurriedly holds the phone from her ear. She covers the receiver and shuts her eyes. She mouths the words fuck.
“Dammit, I did it again!” She hisses towards Stiles.
“So I heard.”
“What’s wrong with me?!”
They both slowly turn towards Derek. He raises his brows on this.
“Why are you looking at me?” Derek however quickly directs his attention over to Stiles “shut up!”
Bella grimaces as she puts the phone back to her ear.
“Are you going to answer me or not!” She heard Charlie snap.
“What in God’s name is wrong with you?”
“I don’t know.” She practically whimpers.
“I was dropped as a child?”
Stiles grins at this. Derek shakes his head.
“You never were dropped!”
“Are you sure?”
She covers the receiver once again.
“I’m so fucked…” She whispers.
“Seriously, like I have no filter!”
She bravely puts the phone to her ear again.
“Look we’ll discuss this later. I gotta get back to work.”
“Ok love you, bye.”
She quickly hangs up and pinches the bridge of her nose.
“I’m saying whatever sarcastic thought comes to mind. I know I shouldn’t, but I am. I don’t get it.”
Derek sighs realizing what it was.
“It’s the mating bond.”
They both turn back towards him.
“So you’re admitting it’s your fault after all!” Stiles declares.
“You’re sensing me and dealing with your own emotions at the same time. You haven’t had time to adjust to it.”
“Are you saying she has two people in her head?”
“In a way…”
“So she’s a mixture of you and her on a very bad day?”
“Let’s put it this way. Whatever mood I’m in; she’s going to feel it as well. If I’m pissed off say at you for instance… it’s going to reflect on her as well. Such as how I’ve been sensing Bella all day as well. Being her alpha only intensifies that.”
“So, let’s say Bella’s happy like she was when she first came to school. But Mr. Big bad alpha over here is all moody… for a change…”
They both cut Derek another accusing look. He shrugs and sits back down on the bed.
“You could have warned me!” Bella snaps at Derek.
“I didn’t think about it.”
“You’ll get used to it.” He says rather offhandedly.
Stiles leans over towards Bella.
“And what if he’s… you know…”
Bella looks to him confused.
“You know…” Stiles tries his best to hint.
“In the mood…?” He whispers.
“Oh! You mean horny!”
Stiles eyes widen and Derek darts his head their direction.
Bella dies in laughter.
“I don’t know Stiles I’ve yet to find out.”
Stiles pinches his eyes shut.
