"Stay here," Derek whispered grabbing his ribs as he began crawling away. Peter ignored Victoria and walked into the room his nephew crawled into. Victoria got up and started following Peter when Stiles grabbed her wrist and pulled her away.
"Stiles let me go, please, let me go," she barked trying to run down the hall.
"There isn't anything you can do, it's either join your brother in death or get away," Stiles tightened his grip on her wrist and looked in her eyes. She sighed and knew he was right and the two ran to his jeep and drove off. When she healed and all her fear melted away she looked at Stiles and once more rage built up.
"How could you!" She barked as he jumped.
"What? What did I…"
"Oh don't stand there and act like an innocent bystander," she barked as he looked at her totally freaked out. "You threw Hunter under the bus."
"Oh my God," she gasped as he looked at her scared. "You're jealous."
"I am not jealous, you and Hunter, please," he squinted as she started laughing.
"You broke up with me, remember Stilinsky, you broke up with me," she punched his arm as he stopped at a light. She unbuckled her seat belt and climbed out.
"Where are you going?" he blurted from the driver's seat as she ignored him. She knew what her uncle was capable of but she was going to let her boyfriend get caught in this. She ran down the street Hunter's ring swaying back and forth the faster she ran. She made it to his house in a matter of minutes without breaking a sweat. Lights and music came from the building as people poured in and out of the front door. She walked up the steps as people smile at her. She walks into the kitchen and found Lydia talking to some of their friends.
"Hey, have you seen Hunter?" she asked a bit fear filled.
"He went upstairs," she smiled with a nod before Victoria ran off, she pushed her way up the crowded stairs and made her way knocking on each door before opening it only to find couples making out. She came to the last door and barged in it looked empty at a first glance and her heart sank but she soon saw a small light coming from the door on the other side of the room and she stepped in holding her breath. She saw a picture of Hunter sitting on dresser and she walked over, it was the winning game last year. Jackson had his arm around her and she looked happy and she saw Hunter laughing but looking in Jackson's direction. The sound of a toilet flushing broke her thoughts and Hunter fell out of the bathroom.
"Oh hey, you came," he smiled as she hugged him taking a deep breath. His normal scent of expensive cologne filled her nostrils as he tightened his hug she smiled, but began crying. "Are you ok?" he asked as she shook her head and pulled herself away. "Tori, what happened with your brother?" he asked as she held onto the corners of his desk gasping for air from her crying. He grabbed her shoulders and began rubbing them trying to calm her down but she continued to cry. "Babe, what happened?" he asked as fear crept into his voice. Victoria finally turned and faced him cupping his face with her hands.
She stood on her toes and kissed him hoping everything will be ok. "I may have led them here by now, I need to go," she whispered rushing for the window.
"Tori, what is going on, you are really freaking me out," he demanded grabbing her wrist and pulled her from the window.
"Remember last week how I told you I had a secret, well this falls under that and I just want to protect you," she sighed as he smiled and sat on the edge of his bed holding her hand.
"Please, you can tell me, whose 'them'?"
"No, I can't tell you, but promise me, you won't talk to a tall man with dark brown hair and matching eyes," she pleaded as he laughed. "Promise me."
"I promise," he sighed as she sat on his knee. She pressed her lips to his hoping it wouldn't be a last. Hunter wrapped his hands around her waist and leaned back on the bed taking her down with him. She lay on top smiling and waiting her breathing a slow rhythmic pattern. She felt scared more than anything and kissed him again. She rolled off and he stood up, Victoria looked at him like a pup pleading him to come back. He locked the door and she climbed off the bed pinning him to the door with one hand above their heads the other to their sides. She pinned her head to his and began kissing him.
Hunter pushed off the door with one foot and the two rolled back and landed on the bed Victoria laughing as she hit the pillow. "I think I love you," she whispered as Hunter's head cocked.
"Think? Well let's get rid of that think," he whispered before kissing her neck causing her to squirm and giggle. Soon her shirt was off and hanging off the side of the bed and she was working on getting his off. "Hang on, hang on," he whispered getting off the bed as she bit her bottom lip. He walked into the bathroom and she walked to the window people still partied and she could hear the music coming from downstairs when someone knocked on the door. She grew silent and took a step away hoping this wouldn't end. Another knock and a jiggle of the handle came but the door never opened. She sighed peacefully knowing it was a drunk partier looking for the bathroom and she returned to the bed, pulling the sheets back she took her shorts off and laid down.
The bathroom door opened and Hunter stood awkwardly in the door frame covering his boxers. She blushed and looked away. "Something tells me, you've never…"
"And you," he cut her off as she blushed. "Not this far," he laughed. "I guess, I was waiting for…"
"That special someone?" she asked awkwardly. "Or marriage."
"Please marriage, that's a long…"
"Well it's not…"
"You're right," he smiled as he stepped closer.
"We don't have to if this is really awkward."
"Awkward is good though," he laughed sitting on the bed, Victoria finding herself now actually checking him out. "You know, you have got to be one of the few members of the lacrosse team who isn't an ass," she laughed sitting up as he looked at her funny.
"You, Scott, and like two others," she whispered getting in his face.
"Who?" She grabbed his short hair and kissed him ignoring the question entirely until they both fell on the bed again. All night her hands traveled up and down his back and across his chest and abs. The two found each other quiet enjoyable and for a first time it felt natural.
When Victoria woke she found herself in the arms of her love, no more thinking she was positive. She smiled and pulled her body closer to his for warmth. All fear had left her body and she forgot almost everything the night before. "Good morning," he groaned looking at her as she smiled.
"Good morning," she whispered tracing his abs with her finger. "For someone who never…well…" she giggled awkwardly.
"You too," he laughed kissing her head. She didn't want to get up but after half an hour the two finally moved, she looked at the clock now reading eight thirty. She picked her clothing from the floor and walked into the bathroom to change. When she came out Hunter had changed too and he escorted her downstairs, the two sat in the kitchen while the cook made them a meal, and the maid cleaned the house.
"Where are your parents?" she asked silently thanking the chef as he placed the plate in front of her.
"Well my dad is in Chicago right now at the office and my mom went to Norway to some sort of Doctor Convention," he rolled his eyes not caring as she smiled with a laugh.
