Soulmates - Scott McCall

warnings: Deucalion’s your Dad so… that sux
Soul mates were a tricky thing, as your father had once explained to you when you were young. There were no hints, no clues as to who they could be. For the humans, all you had to do was touch once, and that was it. You knew that the one you’d made contact with, was your one and only. But for werewolves and other supernaturals, it was a bit different. You still had to make physical contact, but you would know that you’d found your mate if their eyes glowed upon making contact.
Some people went their whole lives without finding their soulmate.
Others died, never knowing who their mate was.
On the contrary, some met their soulmates as young as four, and spent their entire lives together.
You, had not met your soulmate. And quite frankly, it wasn’t a top priority of yours.
But it had happened so abruptly…
“Derek!” You yelled, running down the stairs of the loft. “Derek I’m starving and there’s no food left in my little fridge thing” You reached the bottom, about to complain because you just knew your best friend had ransacked your room in the middle of the night.
“Not now y/n I have guests-” But you’d already walked into the living room, and seeing Derek’s big group of friends. Friends, you were surprised. He really only spoke to you Isaac and Peter, but you guessed he lied about that.
Everyone in the room froze, turning and staring at you.
“Derek…” A girl with fiery hair spoke cautiously. “Are you a father-”
“Good God no, this is y/n” Derek said, groaning and waving a dismissive hand. “She was supposed to stay up in her room, but she doesn’t listen to me anymore, now, do you?” You looked at him, held back a snicker, and stared at your feet for a moment.
“Alright… and who… who is that?” The pale boy next to the previous speaking girl asked. He was shifting his weight from foot to foot.
“She’s… I captured her” Derek said boldly, flashing a large smile.
“Saved” You coughed. “Saved me”
“Saved you? From who?” A petite asian girl asked you. She walked forward, giving you a timid smile but she had kind eyes.
“My father” The girl in front of you frowned.
“Oh, sweetheart I’m sorry, were you in an abusive hom-”
“My Dad’s Deucalion” you stated and her eyes widened instantly.
“O-Oh” She turned, looking to the group of friends for a moment then back at me. “I didn’t think he’d had a daughter” She mumbled.
“Kira don’t be ridiculous” A dirty blonde haired girl said.
“Now wait he could have” The pale freckled boy spoke. “Maybe with Kali… a long time ago she looks out age..”
“I’m seventeen” You said firmly. “And I can hear you clearly. I don’t mind the questions you don’t have to be all secretive about it”
“I’m Lydia” The green eyed girl spoke, walking over and shaking your head with a large smile. “Resident banshee of the McCall pack” you nodded.
“y/n” you replied.
“That’s my mate, Stiles. He’s a human” Her red slicked fingernail pointed to the pale dark haired boy, whom she smiled at. “That’s Kira, she’s a thunder kitsune” The black haired girl grinned at you. “That’s her mate Malia- and oh! That’s our alpha Scott” She pointed to the guy who just walked into the door. He was wearing a brown leather jacket and a motorcycle helmet, kicking off his shoes at the door. Though it’d probably be smarter to keep them on, you knew Derek never cleaned. He walked in, and pulled off his helmet.
“Hey guys did he know anything about Berserkers-” His eyes landed on you, and you tensed slightly under his stare. “Hi-hi” His mumble of a greeting made you laugh quietly.
“Hello” You said back, wrapping your arms around yourself.
“Scotty, this is y/n” Lydia said.
“Hi- hey- I’m Scott” He came forward, setting his helmet on couch and walking over to you, holding out his hand.
“y/n” You say, holding out your hand to shake his. Your fingers had almost brushed but you were interrupted.
“y/n if you’re going to restock your fridge there’s stuff in the basement freezer” Derek said, and you dropped your hand to the side. “We’ve got pack business now” You stepped back from the others and left the room in silence going down the stairs.
“Scott, hey hey Scotty” Stiles began to snap his fingers in front of his friend’s face. “You there buddy? You’re staring”
“S-sorry it’s just- did you see her? Was she real? She was gorgeous did you see?” Lydia let out a chuckle.
“Yeah she was real Scott, good job”
“Oh.. was I-”
“Foolish?” Lydia offered.
“An idiot?” Malia tried.
“Lovestruck?” Kira spoke.
“She was beautiful…” Scott slumped onto the couch, holding his helmet in his lap and staring off somewhere. “Do you think I acted too weird?” Stiles chuckled, patting his friend on the shoulder.
You came back up from the basement, a new abundance of snacks. Scott had walked over to you, but you’d gone up the stairs too quickly.
“Should I call for her?” Scott whisper screamed to Stiles.
“No Scott, don’t be dumb just- just come back to the pack meeting” Scott made a pout, staring up the spiral metal staircase.
But he listened to his friend, and walked back into the living room with everybody else.
“So, Derek, what do you know about Berserkers?”
You’d sat in your room for the next few hours, nose stuck in a book. You’d changed into leggings and a sweatshirt that you swam in, but you were too cozy to complain about it’s size.
It was dark, ten o’clock maybe, and you hadn’t eaten. Now sure, you could snack from your new gathering of treats… or… since Derek was sleeping… you could sneak down the stairs for a snack. You smiled to yourself, slipping out of bed and tiptoeing towards the door. Slowly, you turned the handle as not to make much noise. You opened the door and stepped-
“Scott?” You jumped back when you nearly ran into him.
“Sorry- sorry I’m sorry that was creepy- oh my god I feel like a stalker-”
“No n-no it’s fine you’re fine, just surprised me is all” You blushed and tucked your hands up into your sleeves. “So uh- what uh- what’re you doing here?”
“Well the pack mostly passed out and we’d ordered a pizza and I-I thought you’d like to uhm, to have s-some?” You broke into a big grin and nodded your head.
“Pizza sounds delicious” You said and went down the hall and descended the stairs instantly. Scott followed you into the kitchen, where a bunch of pizza boxes sat on the counter. You grabbed a slice of your favorite and danced on your toes with excitement. “I can’t remember the last time I had-” You spun, and bumped into Scott. His hands instantly grasping your arms to catch you before you fell.
His eyes flashed red, as did yours.
“S-Scott? Y-you’re- you’re my-” He nodded, blinking a few times as though he didn’t believe it.
“Yeah-yeah I guess I-I am” He slowly let go of your arms, and rose his hand towards your face, gently brushing against your cheek. You blushed instantly, and smiled.
“Do you… do you feel that too?” He nodded, and your hand clasped over top of is against your face. “It feels good” You whispered, leaning up just slightly. Again, Scott nodded.
“Yeah.. yeah it-it does” Your eyes flickered from his deep brown was to his lips.
“God I know nothing about you but I just really wanna kiss you” You breathed, and he smiled crookedly for a short moment, then closed the distance between you.
Now, you’d never kissed anyone before, but this was mind blowing. You wrapped your arms around his neck, and his hands still cupped around your face. You parted for a short moment, gasping in a breath before standing on the tips of your toes to kiss him passionately again.
“You’re my soulmate” He mumbled against your lips.
“Mhm” Your hands rose and tangled into his dark locks of hair.
“W-we should go out sometime” he said, and you pulled away from im slightly. Enough to smile softly and look into his eyes. You nodded shakily.
“Ye-yeah we sh-should” You stuttered.
“Okay- okay how about next friday? W-we can go bowling- or-or something else” You nodded, a shyer smile pulling on your lips.
“Bowling sounds great” You said softly, and he smiled, his eyes crinkling as he pulled you back in for another soft kiss.
What an interesting night.
