Summary: Theo came back to his family but Liam’s managed to convince him to help even if it means leaving his family. With a promise he intends to keep he leaves to help for the good side.
Requested: Yes. Anonymous.
A/N: Long awaited and I apologize! It’s been a busy time since beginning this blog and so Ash and I would like to thank you for being so supportive and remember to request things! It’s also admittedly terrible.
You were a secret from everyone in Theo’s life because you were a weakness. Theo needed to be strong and while he wanted you to be a badass by his side, you had pushed him into agreeing to this. You couldn’t be at his side when you weren’t the only one involved.
Theo was the bad guy and you both knew that was true but you also knew he was loving and kind to both you and your guys son. Thomas was a miniature version of his father from the hair to the eyes while he had your smile and nose. He was the light of both Theo and your life even if he wasn’t planned whatsoever.
“Thomas!” You grinned picking up the toddler. He babbled before snuggling into your shoulder.
“Mama.” Thomas said curling his body into your arms like a cat, “Dada?”
“He’s coming home.” You said kissing his cheek, “He better be here before bedtime though.”
Theo had recently come back from the dead with a lot of changes. He wasn’t the same bloodthirsty chimera as he had been before, he no longer strived to be more than what that Scott McCall was. He was suffering in silence and not wanting to drag you into the fray.
“Y/N?” Theo asked walking into the house you had illegally rented, “Where’s Thomas?”
Thomas struggled in your arms before he waddled over to his crouching father. They curled into each others arms as you crossed yours. You were lucky to see Theo on the weekdays since he returned because you guys lived just in the outskirts of the neighboring town to Beacon Hills.
“Why are you home so early?” You questioned.
“I have some news to tell you.”
“And?” You questioned just as the front door opened to reveal a younger teenager. He was shorter than Theo by just a little but you recognized him somewhat, “Liam?” “That’s me.” Liam awkwardly waved. You raised an eyebrow.
“You brought Theo back? Why? Aren’t your the enemy?”
“Kind of?” Liam trailed off watching the weird scene of Theo holding a child that looked like him, “You have a family?”
“What’s going on?”
“The Wild Hunt is in Beacon Hills. It’s taken everyone but the Sheriff, Scott, Lydia, Malia, Theo and I.” Liam explained shifting on his feet as the child turned his attention to him.
“I’m going to put a tv show on for Thomas.” Theo said bringing his son into the living room.
“What are we supposed to do?” You questioned, “You all made both Thomas and my life worse by taking Theo.”
“You help and I won’t sent him back.”
“Can’t do that without the sword.” Theo smirked putting one arm around me.
“I’ll find some-“
“Fine. I’ll help but that boy in that room stays out of this and NO ONE will know about his existence. Got it?” You stated.
“Stay here with Thomas. I’m going to help Liam and I’ll come back I promise.” Theo said before kissing you. You heard the clearing of a voice before you cast a glare at Liam earning a scoff in reply.
“Just promise me you’ll come back to us.” You said leaning your forehead against Theo’s earning a peck.
“Of course. I’ll always come back for you two.”
You watched as the two boys left the house and into the darkness where you wished Theo didn’t have to go to again and again. You weren’t even twenty and you already had a child that could very well grow up without a dad. If the Wild Hunt truly is in Beacon Hills than by tonight you may never even remember Theo.
You weren’t sure how much time passed but Theo hadn’t returned to see Thomas on his second birth and you knew he was gone. You just didn’t know if you should be happy to remember him or not because that’s not what the Wild Hunt did.
You were a human. You didn’t have claws or sharp teeth or anything supernatural. That didn’t mean you were helpless so when the door rattled you had a gun aimed there.
“Theo?” You questioned both confused and shocked.
“I’m home. For good.” Theo grinned as his son flew into the room screaming for him.
