The walls keep tumbling down
Stiles still couldn’t believe it. All that time he had to act normal, focus on Scott and the two ticking time bombs they had with them.
It had been easy to forget while talking to Lydia about bigger and worse things and even easier when bigger and worse things started happening, but in the end it still was just Stiles, all by his own, driving to the Alpha’s loft. –He had no idea what it would change going there and why he was causing himself so much pain at the first place. The thought of going there and seeing the loft empty was enough to make his hands shake but…He needed to do this. And he sure as hell was not going to cry. Tears were for those who had the time to be weak and Stiles obviously didn’t have that time.

He almost died because he is still blaming himself for your death… Isaac and Boyd are walking time bombs and I… – I’m sick of this. And sick of you for making me go through this again.” In less than two days, Stiles had lost three friends. Erica (Though you couldn’t count her), Heather and now… Derek.
“This is not fa–” Stiles froze when he heard noises, eyes wide opened while he waited. – What if they were waiting here for Derek’s pack? Waiting for a way to take revenge for this guy who died together with Derek? That’s what Scott said, right? Derek and an Alpha…
