Believe It or Not. Part 2.
Here’s part two of my Stiles Stilinski imagine series(:
(Based off 1x02 “Second Chance at First Line”)
I had nothing better to do, so I sat on the bleachers trying to do some homework while the boys were at practice. My practice starts when theirs ends, so I figured I would just sit here. They were doing a bunch of weird drills that I don’t understand, and then I noticed Scott was leaned over and it looked like he was breathing really hard. Stiles was bent over next to him saying something to him, of course this far away I couldn’t make out what he was saying. I shut my textbook and stood up trying to get a better view of the scene, that’s when Stiles and Scott ran off the field and back towards to school. I decided to follow.
I couldn’t find them anywhere, the last place I could think of was the boys locker room but it’s not really like I can check in there, and I had practice anyway so I was really needing to get back to the field, I’ll just ask Scott about it later.

I walked through the front door only to be greeting by my mother going the other direction.
“Good luck tonight.” She said frustratedly.
“What? With what?”
“Scott’s in a bad mood, I don’t know if it’s a bad mood really I think he just needs to sleep but he wasn’t particularly the nice son just now.”
“I’ll talk to him a little bit, see if something’s up.” I reassured her grabbing her shoulder as she continued to walk out the door.
She gave me a smile smile before leaving completely.
I walked up the stairs to head to my room first, I really needed to take a shower. The first game is on Saturday and we have barely got one routine down. Im really excited though, despite being sore. Something will be really cool cheering for Scott while he plays first line.
I finished in the shower and got dressed in some sweat pants, I walked to Scott’s room only to fine he wasn’t there. Weird. I just ignored it an decided to get some sleep before school tomorrow.

Later that day in our math class, our teacher assigned Scott and Lydia up to the board to solve equations. Despite being dumb, she was actually solving hers rather quickly. Scott wasn’t solving his at all, which I blame Lydia for. I couldn’t hear anything but was definitely bothering him about something and he looked really annoyed.
“Mr. McCall, you’re not even close to solving your problem.”

I walked through the hallway during passing period only to see Lydia introducing Allison I practically every player on the team, poor Scott.
Speaking of, I see him watching the same thing I am a little ways down the hall. I go to approach him but he walks right past me straight towards Lydia and Allison, and he looked pissed. So I stand where I am and watch.
After Lydia left, his conversation with Allison sort of looked like a disaster. She just left him in the middle of the hallway. I would’ve helped but there was nothing really I could do. That’s when the bell rang and I yelled, “Scott.” Too grab his attention, but again he walked past me and out the front doors of the school. But it’s fine, I love being ignored.
I sat down next to Stiles in my next class and figured he might be the only way I know what’s going on with my brother.
“Hey.” I start.
“Hey!” He smiled back at me.
“Can I ask you something, it’s about Scott.”
Maybe im just imaging things, but it looked as if he stopped breathing.
“Uh- yeah, yeah sure, I guess.”
That was weird.
“Okayyyyy, well is he okay? Is it just stuff with Allison or-”
“yes. YES! That’s exactly what it is. Allison, everything wrong with Scott has to do with Allison.”
He cut me off very abruptly. Very confused I turned my attention to the boring history lesson I front of me, he was totally lying, but I guess I can handle it for now.

I stopped by the hospital during lunch to bring mom some coffee, she doesn’t like us to worry but I think she’s been pretty stressed lately so I thought I’d surprise her, make her smile.
“Hi Julie, is my mom available right now?”
I asked the woman sitting behind the front desk.
“You’re so sweet y/n, I’ll go let her know you’re here.”
“Thank you!” I propped my arm up on the counter and faced the other direction only to see Stiles sitting around the corner from Lydia, who was probably here with Jackson about his shoulder.
Stiles pretended to be reading a magazine whilst actually staring at her, which is how I witnessed probably the most embarrassing situation I’ve ever seen Stiles caught in.
“Hey, Lydia. You probably don’t remember me. Um, I sit behind you in Biology. Uh, anyway, I always thought that we just had this kind of connection. Unspoken, of course. Maybe it’d be kind of cool to, get to know each other a little better.”
“Hold on, give me a second. Yeah, I didn’t get any of what you just said. Is it worth repeating?”
I literally wanted to walk over there and slap her so bad for being so rude to him, he deserved so much better.
“ No. Sorry. I’ll just sit. You don’t care.”
After that Jackson came out and all her attention was focused on him, so I walked over and sat down next to Stiles.
“What’re you doing here?” I asked looking at him as he looked down at his hands in his lap. He looked up at me then,
“Nothing. Why are you here?”
I held up the coffee in my hand, “thought my mom could use some caffeine.”
He laughed, he looked so happy and almost childish when he laughed. I loved it. The moment was ruined by his phone singing in his pocket. He read it quickly and his facial expression made it seem urgent.
“Everything okay?” I asked.
“Yeah, fine,” he stood up and faced me, “look I gotta go.”
He started to walk away but before he got too far I shouted, “Bye Stiles!”
“Bye Lydia!” He shouted back, “I mean, y/n.”
I couldn’t really be mad or hurt, but I gotta say that really sucked. Nothing better than talking to your crush only to realize he wanted to be talking to someone else the entire time. Oh well, im here for my mom anyways, not him.

I came home that night after practice at around 6:30, mom had the night shift again so I knew I was making dinner for Scott and I. I decided ordering pizza was a good idea, so I called in the order.
“Scott?” I called throughout the house once I hung up on the pizza place, “Scott you home?”
The silence that followed after what I said answered my question for me. Of course he’s not home, he’s got the lacrosse game! And so do I. Although to don’t know why he’d be there already, it starts at 8.
I called him, and then Stiles. No answer from either. I ate my pizza by myself and then changed into my uniform.
I admired myself in the mirror a little bit, I really did look good in maroon. I tied my straight hair up into a pony tail, and headed towards to lacrosse field.
When I got there, there were a lot of people. Which I guess is to be expected for the first game of the season. I spotted Allison and Lydia making their way to a seat on the bleachers with an old man, I assumed he was Allison’s dad since he obviously wasn’t Lydia’s.
I then glanced around the rest of the field, I then saw Scott and Stiles sitting on the bleachers secretly discussing something, and I didn’t really feel like getting blown off again so I decided I would talk to them later, even though I really wanted to wish my brother… And Stiles good luck, it would have to wait.
I saw my squad across the field individually stretching and preparing and started to walk towards them only to be cut off by Stiles himself.
“Hey Stiles, are you ready for the game?” I asked nonchalantly.
“I mean, not really, but I don’t really have to be. It’s not like im gonna play anyway.”
“That’s the spirit!” I said sarcastic making him laugh. Then we just kinda stood there awkwardly for a few seconds before he spoke again.
“Actually y/n, I wanted to apologize.”
“Stiles you didn’t do anything, apologize for what?”
“Calling you Lydia, earlier. I don’t really-”
I cut him off not really wanting to talk about this at the moment, “it’s totally fine, you were just in a conversation with her before me. It’s not a big deal, you don’t need to apologize.” I gave him a weak smile and tried to walk away but his arm caught mine.
“I do need to though.”
We just stared at each for a little bit before he finally let go. Without saying anything I continued walking to join my squad in the grass by the bleachers.
*she didn’t know, but Stiles watched her walk away, sadly. He really did feel bad, and he really needed to apologize. Although he didn’t quite understand it himself, he never wants to hurt her. And with everything with Scott he’s been kind of shitty to her lately, they both have. But he shrugged it off for now, he had Scott to worry about for the time being.

The game was going good, we were winning already. Scott was doing great! I’ve never seen him play this good, or, at all honestly.
Also cheering was going great, I didn’t forget a single step of any routine, I was good at this, and I liked that.
Although the more closely I watched, the more Scott looked really angry, nobody was passing to him and I didn’t understand why. But he started to play more aggressively. He didn’t wait for the lacrosse ball to be passed to him, he just took it. I looked over to Stiles sitting on the bench and he was chewing on his glove, watching Scott’s every move. Something more was definitely going on. I moved my attention back to Scott on the field, but he wasn’t even paying attention. I followed his gaze up to the bleachers were Allison was assisting Lydia in holding a sign that read out, ‘go Jackson.’
That’s gotta be rough.
Once the game was over I ran on the field to greet Scott but he was nowhere to be found, instead I ran into Allison.
“Hey, did you see where your brother went?” She asked.
“No clue, I was looking him myself. Sorry I could be much help.”
She just smiled and waved, I decided if I couldn’t find Scott I would look for Stiles. I spotted him not too far from. I started to walk to him but not even two steps later he took off running towards the school not far behind Allison. It’s whatever though.
I guess I’ll just go home and congratulate Scott when he decides to show up.
*please feel free to send me a message to let me know how I’m or if you have any suggestions. Or just to say hi(:*
