Stiles remembers getting off the phone with her, begging her to come pick him up from the sleepover. She’d only left him an hour before, but he didn’t like being picked on by Jackson, was afraid tonight might be the night that the old Sheriff would be coming to say daddy wouldn’t be coming home again and where would he be if his mother needed him? He needed to be home.
It was dark before Ms McCall, voice shaking and tears in her eyes, told him that his dad was there to pick him up.
He never imagined that it would be his mother never coming home again.
A good samaritan had managed to untangle her, pull her to the surface, and get her heart beating again. However, with the amount of time she’d been without oxygen, terms like brain dead and no hope were thrown around. It took weeks bleeding into months before the Sheriff could tell them to let her go. When she’d kept breathing, Stiles clinging to her hand, he’d felt hope exploding in his chest. But it only lasted for a few minutes before she was gone forever.
with the alpha pack headed to beacon hills, the last two members of the hale pack know it’s for one of two reasons: to recruit laura and carry on the born wolf bloodline or kill them both for their power. they’re not going to be happy to find laura already bonding to another wolf - her beta.
burning their lies, burning my dreams
The Hales were a small, but tight knit family. They kept their family close, kept their secrets hidden. They integrated themselves into the town, made themselves valuable. Olivia as a cop, Talia as the coroner, Robert as a forest ranger, Ana as a substitute teacher and music instructor. Laura, the twins Christian and Emily, and Derek were all in high school, a year apart with Laura as a senior. Their human cousins, Wendy and Parker were six and three, at the start of their lives.Being together since high school but refusing the bite was always a sore subject between Peter and Ana, especially when it resulted in two human children. She chose to ignore his dark side, his almost gleeful nature when giving into the wolf’s thirst for blood, because she loved him and he loved her and their children. She would’ve been a fool to think that harmony could last for them with a hunter family in town. It’s in her favorite place of the house, the basement with beautiful acoustics where she teaches piano, that she - along with her two sisters in law, her brother in law, her nephew, her niece, and her two children - meet their inevitable end.
