Burned (Nolan Holloway)
Next installment of the Broken series
song (for all my fellow Theo lovers but also works with this part)
I was suddenly ripped off of him and thrown in to the wall.
“what the hell?” I said struggling to get up.
I looked up to see Liam growling at Nolan. This was all my fault.
Nolan went to get up but Liam shoved him back down.
“you may have her fooled but I can see right through to who you really are.” Liam growled.
Liam backed Nolan up in to the wall still growling at him.
“Liam.” Scott said suddenly appearing and putting a hand on his shoulder.
Liam looked to Scott and then me before storming out of the holding cell. I could tell he was angry but when wasn’t he angry. Scott came over giving me a hand up.
“are you okay?” He asked giving me a smile.
I nodded giving him a half smile. The truth was I wasn’t okay at all. Nolan told me he loved me and now I felt like I had to choose between being with him or saving my friends. I knew Scott would understand better than anyone, he was in my position once. Scott grabbed Nolan’s arm so he could be escorted to another room. I walk over picking up the vial of wolsbane.
“thanks for saving us.” Jiang said giving me a small smile.
“saving us? She was making out with the enemy that’s hardly saving us!” Tierney growled her eyes glowing for a split second.
It was only a split second but I saw them. Blue. She’s killed an innocent, exactly what we were trying to prove that we weren’t doing. I glared at her before walking out of the holding cell area. I watched them handcuff Nolan to a desk in another room and an officer was to stand by at all times and keep watch on him. What really struck me was he didn’t put up a fight, he fully complied. Scott came walking towards me giving me an apologetic look.
“check their eyes.” I said simply.
He gave me a confused look but just nodded at me before walking away. Liam stood across the room glaring at me. I took a step forward to talk to him when an arrow flew through the window before sticking in a support beam. I pull it from the wood releasing a piece of fabric. I pick it up, it’s a bloodstained number seven.
“Brett.” Liam growled grabbing the fabric from my hand.
He started breathing heavily.
“there just trying to mess with us.” Lydia said running a hand through her hair.
“It’s working.” Theo said.
Suddenly a loud scream shakes the station.
“Nolan.” I breathed running to the room he was being held in.
I walked in seeing the officer in charge of watching Nolan hanging from the ceiling, a noose wrapped around his neck. I couldn’t hear a heartbeat.
“I didn’t touch him I swear, he did that to himself. I tried to stop him but he wouldn’t stop.” Nolan cried.
I walked over wrapping my arms around him.
“I know you didn’t it’s okay.” I said running my hands through his hair.
Suddenly I look up and it’s not Nolan I’m holding but the creature with no face. I quickly let go of him falling back in terror. The creature stood up from the chair walking towards me.
“GET AWAY FROM ME!” I yelled backing up.
I couldn’t think of a time I had ever been as terrified as I was right now. The creature kept walking towards me. I quickly grabbed my belt snapping my katana in place. I got up charging at the monster holding up my sword, while commanding the fox in me to come out.
“WATASHI WA KITSUNE, AKU NO KUCHIKA-KANDA!" I yelled charging at the creature. (I am the fox, the destroyer of evil)
"Y/N STOP!” Scott roared flashing his alpha eyes.
I quickly stopped, dropping my sword. Nolan stared at me terrified. I looked around quickly but didn’t see the creature anymore, and I realized it was only in my head, the fear was playing tricks on me. I was going to attack Nolan.
“Nolan, I..” I started but he cut me off.
“GET AWAY FROM ME” Nolan yelled and tried backing away from me but he was still handcuffed to the desk.
I could feel the tears fall down my cheeks as I slowly walked out of the room. Before I could leave Scott grabbed my arm making me look at him.
“when did you learn how to speak Japanese?” He asked looking in my eyes.
“I don’t know how to speak Japanese?” I questioned confused.
“you just did, before you almost killed Nolan.” He said looking at me up and down.
Suddenly a gun shot rang hurting our ears. Scott and I turned around to see another deputy had shot herself causing everyone to rush in the room.
“get him out of here." Noah says pointing to Nolan.
Liam grabbed Nolan who looked even more terrified now.
"Nolan I’m sorry.” I cried but he wouldn’t even look at me.
“Scott we only have ten minutes until midnight” Malia said checking the clock.
“what are we going to do?” Quinn asked, tears running down her cheeks.
“I already have two dead bodies, I’m not giving Monroe two more.” Noah said running a hand over his face.
Parrish and Stilinski exited the room along with everyone but myself. I looked around the room. It seemed so real, the creature standing in front of me. Also I spoke Japanese? Kira used to do that while her fox spirit was taking over her body.
“It’s in here with us, I feel it too.” Lydia said coming to stand beside me.
“I almost killed Nolan, it was so real I could’ve swore the real creature was in here. It’s almost as if I wasn’t in control anymore.” I said frustrated.
“It’s playing on your fears, I think you’re afraid that Nolan really is bad and it knew that.” She said patting my shoulder.
I shrugged my shoulders not wanting to acknowledge that she was right. I wasn’t just afraid, I was terrified that Nolan will actually go through with the hunters. We walked out seeing the rest of the pack shoving the two dead deputies in body bags. I gave them a questioning look.
“Monroe said dead or alive, she doesn’t actually know what they look like so.” Scott explained to Lydia and I.
“Do you think it’ll actually work?” I asked.
“Hopefully.” Scott said.
“just one more thing.” Noah said before firing two gunshots.
Scott, Theo, Parrish, and Noah took the bodies outside while the rest of us crowed around the window. Maybe we could all make it out of here alive. I looked at Monroe’s face and could tell she wasn’t buying it. That’s when all of the hunters aimed their guns at Scott and Theo. I was about to run outside when we heard loud sirens and saw flashing lights. Scott, Theo, Parrish, and Noah came back inside.
“Scott what’s happening?” Liam asked.
“I don’t know.” Scott said disappointment in his face.
Rafe McCall came back in looking at all of us. I could tell what he was going to say next wasn’t going to be good.
“you all need to leave Beacon Hills.” Rafe said looking at all of us.
“what no we can’t!” I immediately protested.
“I agree.” Liam growled.
“I am not leaving.” Lydia said crossing her arms.
“look I know you guys don’t like the idea but a little de-escalation is what’s needed here, that is why you called me right?” Rafe said looking at us and then at Noah.
“It doesn’t matter if we leave, they’re just going to keep hunting us down.” Malia said.
“No they agreed to it.” Rafe said.
We all looked to Scott to help us, but so far he’s stayed silent. He was either plotting or he’s ran out of hope.
“fine, we’ll go.” Scott said looking at all of our faces.
We’re escorted out of the station all the hunters staring us down. Nolan runs out of the station immediately back to Gabe. I realized we were never going to be together. He’s already made a choice. Jiang and Tierney were dragged out of the station and put in a separate van. The hunters cleared as we went to our homes to pack our bags to leave. I walk in my house feeling nothing. I grabbed some clothes throwing them in the duffle bag. I looked up seeing the picture of Nolan and I. I grabbed it off the wall along tearing it in two. That wasn’t enough for me though. I ripped it until it couldn’t ever be put together again.
“Is that what you think of me?” A voice said from the doorway.
I snapped my head up seeing Nolan standing there. I didn’t say anything, I just went back to shoving clothes in my bag.
“I just wanted to say I’m sorry.” He said.
I quickly turned around, angry tears streaming down my face.
“sorry for what? sorry for lying to me? sorry for choosing them? Nolan it’s you I feel sorry for, because once this is all over you’re not going to have anyone left who cares.” I said shoving past him.
“I didn’t lie.” He said grabbing my arm and making me stop.
“yeah well you didn’t exactly tell the truth now did you. Nolan waiting for you is like waiting for rain in a drought, useless and disappointing.” I said jerking my arm out of his grasp.
He didn’t say anything, just stared at me.
“goodbye Nolan.” I said turning to leave again.
Nolan grabbed my arm pulling me to him before crashing his lips on mine. I quickly pulled away from him.
“No, you don’t get to just kiss me and everything goes away. I’m leaving Nolan, because of you and your friends, you don’t get to do this to me anymore. Goodbye Nolan.” I said walking towards the door.
“but I love you.” He said making me stop in the doorway.
“you don’t hurt the people you love.” I said before walking out the door.
I didn’t look back either. I was gone, physical and emotionally, just gone.
