“You’re leaving again?” You looked at your best friend Thomas Jefferson with disbelief, standing in the doorway as you watched him pack his belongings into a bag.

“I’m sorry, Y/N, but I still have unfinished business in France, I have to go back for a while.” He responded to you without looking away from what he was doing, barely acknowledging that you were more than just a voice at the moment.

“How long is a while going to be? Why didn’t you just finish everything before you left? You surely didn’t just figure out that you were leaving so why didn’t you tell me before?”

“I’m sorry,” Thomas repeated, running his hand through his thick, bushy hair before using it once again to cram everything he deemed necessary into his suitcase. He felt guilty for not telling you sooner, but he really did hate it when you were sad. “And I don’t know how long I’ll be, but I will come back.”

You stood there, helpless as you watched Thomas, someone who you had been friends with for as long as you could remember, someone who had been by your side forever until the day he left for France, leave once again. Silently, you watched as he stood, lifting his bag with him, and walked out the door, past you. He began walking down the stairs and you followed, thinking of something to say to possibly get him to stay.

As you saw his hand extend towards the doorknob, you grasped onto his arm without trying, stopping him from opening the door. He turned to face you, your head was down and your eyes were brimmed with tears, struggling to keep them back.

“Please… Don’t leave me…” You murmured, your eyes fixed on the floor.

Thomas looked at you apologetically. “I’m not leaving you for too long, you’ll be fine.”

You shook your head, tears beginning to fall silently. You wanted to believe that you would be fine, but you felt that you wouldn’t. You had what felt like thousands of drafts of letters that you had addressed to Thomas while he was away that you hadn’t sent to him in fear of what me might say in response to them. All of them confessed the feelings you had for him but you were never sure how to word it exactly. It would sound too stupid and cheesy, all this about falling in love with your best friend.

“Thomas,” You began, “I-How do I say this…. I love you. I fucking love you. Almost since the moment I laid my eyes on you. Every waking moment while you were gone you were on my mind. And I almost feel stupid for not saying it before. I love you. I love you, I love you, I love you. And it breaks my heart every time I have to watch you go off somewhere, forgetting about me. Selfish, I know, but I can’t help but feel like other people could be throwing themselves at you, getting your love and affection that I’ve wanted for so fucking long. I can’t live without you because I’d be incomplete. Whenever you leave, it’s like a part of me leaves too. And so here I am, tears pouring out of my eyes, begging you to stay, even though it probably doesn’t even matter.” You choked on your last word, breaking into a sob and falling onto your knees.

Thomas stood there a moment, dumbfounded. He knelt down, taking you into his arms as you continued crying. He whispered soothing words into your ear and rocked you back and forth. Once you had calmed enough to stop your tears, you lifted your head to look at Thomas, to be greeted by his lips pressed firmly against yours. You melted into the kiss, but it was short-lived as he pulled away to look you in the eye.

“Y/N, I’ll be back as very soon as I can. I’m not going to forget about you. Ever. I’ll write whenever I have the time.”


Thomas smiled. “I promise.” He rose, offering you a hand to help you stand. You happily accepted the offer, holding his hand for much longer than you should have. You smiled back, still realizing how much you’d miss him.

“Y/N,” Thomas paused before he closed the door, turning to look you in the eye. “I love you too.”

He closed the door and you watched him from the window as he stepped into the carriage and rode away. You knew that if he really loved you, he’d come back.

You can’t keep everything you love locked in your arms because things that important to you can’t always stay.

Stars // Ch 6

START HERE: CH 1, CH 2, CH 3, CH 4, CH 5

The drive up to the lake house was quiet. Liam took control of the radio and was playing some music I had never heard, or cared for. I found a pair of headphones in my jacket pocket. I plugged them into my phone and tried to drown out the noise coming from the radio. No one had done any talking the entire drive. We all kept to our music.

Around 7 we pulled up to a big house. I knew Lydia’s family had money, but damn this place was huge. I stepped out of the car and walked towards the door. I hesitated at the door, debating whether to knock or not before just going inside.

Kira and Lydia were curled on the couch watching some show on tv. Malia and Stiles were MIA, but I assumed they were around. Lydia gave me a wave and patted the sofa next to her. I sunk down on it and turned my attention to the TV.

“Are Stiles and Malia already downstairs?” Scott asked. He kissed Kira and stood beside the couch. Liam hesitated at the doorway. His hands were clenched tightly into fists.

“Yeah, Malia was having some trouble.” Kira said vacantly. I could tell she was really interested in the show.

“We should take Liam down to the boat house now.” Scott looked over at Liam before grabbing Kira’s hand and pulling her to her feet.

He grabbed Liam’s arm in his other hand and dragged him outside.

“Where are they going?” I asked Lydia. She shifted so she was sitting up with me.

“They’re taking Liam to the boat house to chain him up.” Lydia replied. My eyes widened.

“Chain him up?” I couldn’t imagine what she was talking about.

“Yeah, Scott uses chains and pretty much attaches Liam to a pole in the boat house. That was if he loses control he can’t hurt anyone.” Lydia explained. I nodded without speaking and turned to the TV once more.

After a few episodes of whatever reality show was on the screen, I sat up and stretched. I turned to face Lydia.

“Can I go see Scott?” I asked. She shook her head violently.

“No, you could get hurt.” Lydia said. I frowned. I looked up at her again to stare in her eyes. “Kennedy, your eyes are glowing green.”

“Lydia, I want to go see Scott.” I said with a little more force. Her face became blank and she nodded to me. I smiled and stood up. “See ya later.” And with that, I went out in the direction that Scott went before. I spotted a small building down on the water which I assumed was the boat house.

I walked inside and I certainly wasn’t prepared for what I saw. Liam’s eyes were glowing yellow and he was growling at Scott. Scott’s eyes were red and he was making an attempt to calm down Liam. Kira was standing there awkwardly with a sword in her hand.

“What’s going on in here?” I asked no one in particular. I hopped up on the counter to sit down. I swung my legs casually.

“What are you doing down here Kennedy?” Scott asked. His voice sounded angry. I just smiled at him.

“I convinced Lydia to let me come down here.” I replied happily. Liam let out an angry yell and Scott turned his attention back to the boy. Kira came to stand by me. I hadn’t had much time to talk to her, but she seemed nice enough.

“It’s really not safe for you down here. Liam’s gotten out before.” Kira said. She gave me a small smile. I sighed before I stared her in the eyes.

“I want to stay here, so I am going to stay here.” I said. She nodded and turned to face Scott. Her expression was blank, just like Lydia’s had been.

“Scott her eyes are glowing.” Kira said. Scott seemed to have calmed down Liam because his eyes were blue again. Scott’s eyes snapped to meet mine. I just raised my eyebrows at him.

“Kennedy what did you do?” He asked. He came to approach me. I just shrugged my shoulders.

“I didn’t do anything. All I did was say what I wanted to do and everyone’s agreeing with me.” I explained. Scott seemed to think it over a little.

“Can you try it on me?” He asked. “Just ask me to-“ he was cut off by Liam screaming again.

I moved my gaze around Scott to glare at Liam. “Can you calm down? I’m trying to have a conversation.” Scott gasped as I spoke. I assume that he was seeing what everyone else was. Liam’s eyes stopped glowing and he immediately stopped yelling.

“What the hell Kenny?” Scott was astonished. “What did you just do?”

“I… I don’t know. I wanted him to stop yelling. I can’t even hear myself think.” I huffed. Liam shifted under his heavy chains, the clanking metal was the only sound for a few seconds.

“She gains powers from the night.” Kira said, reciting what Lydia had said earlier. Holy shit I had powers.

“Is this a full moon thing or will this be every night?” I asked Scott. He sighed and wrapped his arms around me. I leaned into his hug.

“I have no idea Kenny, but we’re gonna figure it out okay?” I nodded. I hopped off the counter and started walking up to the house. Kira and Scott turned to follow me out.

“Hey guys?” Liam asked. We all turned to face him. Scott jogged over and started undoing his chains.

“Sorry buddy, you were so calm I almost forgot you were there.” Scott chuckled and let him out. Once Liam was free he joined us in the walk back to the house.

“Thanks for that back there.” He said quietly. He rubbed the skin on his wrists which I assumed were sore from being chained up. “I’m still having trouble controlling myself on full moons.”

“It’s all good.” I said, dismissing his thanks. I didn’t really mean to have that much of an effect on him. I didn’t even know what I could do.

“Kenny, we’re gonna go put your powers to the test.” Scott said once we got inside. I looked at him questioningly. “We’re going to go see if you can calm down Malia.”
