I tell myself there's no space for me to go with them; it's too small, there's no room. But appearances are deceiving; it's bigger on the inside. So I take their hands
and jump onto the bandwagon.

Welcome to Tumblr
‘You want to protect him.’
‘It’s to protect myself,’ he contradicts with a hiss and a jerk, full of guilt and the need for self-preservation.
At long last, after YONKS OF NOTHING…Here, I present the next chapter of ‘Break the Foundation’.
She laughs at him. ‘You’re so snarky, Dylan—’
‘My name is Stiles,’ he snaps.
‘What are you hiding?’ He demands with a narrowed look, expression full of fury in replacement of fear.
‘I’m not hiding anything,’ he lies.
'Listen; something’s going on in Beacon Hills and we’re being targeted.’
‘Who are we—by who? Whom? Whatever.’ He asks, voice grim and steady in the face of a threat.
He shakes his head even though it can’t be seen. ‘We don’t know yet.’
He pushes him back inside none too gently and shuts the door behind him, slips the latch onto the slide-lock and exhales, trying to calm himself after a long day of jumping from one conclusion to another. He tries to gather the right words, tries to figure out the best way to start the conversation, which direction to go, which route to take. He decides for the blunt and brutal approach.
‘What are you hiding?’
His knuckles pale under the accusation but his voice remains steady as he answers him, ‘Nothing.’
‘That. Is. A. Lie.’
'Think about it – he isn’t anybody special; he works a normal job, has normal hobbies and a normal social life - he doesn’t stand out.’
‘Then why is he dead?’
He doesn’t answer, because he doesn’t know.
‘How about some dinner?’ he smiles uneasily.
‘What is this about?’ He snaps and gestures for the other to just get to the point.
He shakes his head, looking regretful, before he steels himself and looks him in the eyes, his lips forming into words and his voice telling him: ‘Kate Argent is being released today.’
He doesn’t breathe.
‘What took you?’ He asks breathlessly.
He hums nonchalantly, ‘I wanted to see if you could handle it without my interruption.’
‘I couldn’t, not on my own,’ he admits.
ISN’T THIS EXCITING??? SKJDHFKSHDFSKD!! HERE YOU HAVE IT! THE MOMENT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR (or so I hope…) PART TWO!!

His pack is dying. His pack is dying and there is someone systematically attacking each of his Betas by going after the people they care about the most. Derek struggles to keep things under control on the supernatural front while Stiles tackles things from a legal point of view and despite everything spinning wildly out of proportion they try their best to figure out who is behind the deaths.
Meanwhile, cold cases and old reports are suddenly being brought back out to face the sheriff’s scrutiny and the secret they both tried so hard to keep hidden is about to be exposed.
He pays attention to the direction of where the wind is blowing, makes sure his scent is carried away from where the others are and not towards them. Of course, this only works when he’s the one downwind, not the other way around.
‘They won’t hear us.’
