I'm woken by Scott, shaking my shoulders and whispering" wake up, May, wake up." I whined, and turned over, he said" hey, sleepy head, wake up." I opened my eyes and looked at him, he said" wanna wake up?" I said" no, thanks." He laughed, saying" well... I was gonna ask if you wanted to go with us? But never-" I jumped up and tackled him, he said" really, Maya?" I nodded, looking at him, he said" I change my mind." I whined and nuzzled into his neck, he said" maybe it's too dangerous for a little girl like you..." I said" hey! I'm strong as you!" He said" alpha? Pup?" I said" I'm smarter than you." Stiles came in, saying" she's kinda right on that one, Scott." I said" Stiles!" I jumped up and ran to him, hugging him, he lifted me up, saying" she's going with us." Scott groaned then nodded, and got up, They left so I could change.

I walked out and we left Beacon Hills, Kira, Lydia and Malia were in the back seat while I was cuddled up to Scott in the passenger seat. I mumbled" are we gonna find Derek?" Scott said" yeah, we're gonna find him." I saw Stiles glance at Scott, I said" how can I help?" I leaned back and looked at Scott and Stiles, Stiles said" you can protect the jeep from all the mean hunters." I whined, saying" that's not fair!" I cuddled into Scott, whimpering into his neck, knowing I didn't want to leave Scott, I'm scared and he's my alpha. Scott said" Stiles is just joking, May, you're gonna come with me and help me beat up the mean hunters." I said" yay!"

Once we got to Mexico, Scott got out and lifted me up onto his hip, he whispered" you stay with me, the entire time, and you protect the pack, okay?" I nodded, wrapping my arms around his neck, Scott said" when we get inside, keep your face tucked into my neck, okay?" I nodded, and then tucked my face into his neck, inhaling his scent, wrapping my legs tighter and arms tighter.

Scott took out a guy, Scott crouched down and picked up the talkie, and then said" Stiles. Take 10 off the table." He adjusted me onto his side and then stood up, I whispered" is Stiles okay?" Scott said" yeah, he's fine." Then we rushed back into the room with the loud music, Scott put me down as he pushed a guy that had a gun into a pillar then threw him into a wall. He looked at Kira and nodded, then grabbed my hand and we walked off with Kira and Malia following us. We walked into another hallway, and weird air started coming out of a pipe, I whimpered and dug my face into Scott's neck. Then another one and another, then Scott said" Wolfsbane. It's wolfsbane! Kira... kira, get out of here!" Scott put me down as he fell, Kira started trying to run, I crawled to Malia and she pulled me under her and then I started coughing, then I passed out.

I jumped up, growling, then I heard Stiles say" shhh, shh, Maya, pup, it's okay." My eyes glowed and I growled at him, Malia walked to me and hugged me, I calmed down, clambering into her arms. Then I heard Kira say" He's awake. Guys, he's awake." Then Malia carried me to Scott, who was laying on the floor, Stiles said" Scott, you okay?" Scott started sitting up, Stiles and Kira helped, Scott said" they don't have him. They don't have derek." Kira said" we know. But right now, they've got Lydia." Scott said" Lydia? What do they want with Lydia?" Scott went to the door and tried to open it but it didn't work, Kira said" We already looked for a way out. I think a lot of people have." Malia said" I say when that door opens again, we take out whoever's standing in the way and run for it." Kira said" what about Lydia?" Malia said" What about her?" I looked up at Malia, Scott said" We're not leaving without her."
Malia said" Why not?"
Stiles said" Because we don't leave without people. Remember, we talked about this? Rules of the wild kingdom don't apply to friends." Kira said" Is that what you would do as a coyote, leave her for dead?" Malia said" If she was weak and injured, yeah. If hunting had been bad that season, I would eat her. Then I'd leave."
Stiles said" Mmm. Believe it or not, that's progress." Scott said" alright, guys, we're not dead yet. And that means Araya wants something." Kira said" But if the Calaveras don't know where Derek is, that means they didn't take him from the loft. Right?" Stiles said" Maybe he left on his own." Scott said" Maybe someone else got to him." I climbed into Scott's arms, then the door opened and 3 hunter came in, we turned to face them, then they electrocuted Scott, I roared and pounced forward, only to be electrocuted and pass out.

I woke up when someone slightly slapped my face, I opened my eyes and saw we were outside. I cuddled into Stiles and watched Scott talk to the mean lady. Once the lady walked away, Scott walked towards us, Stiles said" so what now?" Scott said" she thinks she knows where we can find derek." Malia said" She gonna tell us where?" Scott said" Uh, actually, she's giving us a guide." Then someone on a motorcycle pulled up, Stiles said" you know her?" As the woman took off her helmet, I said" Braeden!" Kira said" who's Braeden?" Lydia said" she's a Mercenary." Braeden said" Right now, I'm the only one who's gonna take you to la Iglesia." Lydia said" The Church?" Stiles said" What's The Church?" Braeden said" It's not a place you'll find god."

We were following Braeden, Scott was looking out the window, Malia leaned up, saying" Okay, I'll ask. Who's Kate Argent?" Kira said" Uh, I'd like to know, too." Stiles said" Well, we were at her funeral. So, I'd like to know how she got out of a casket that was buried six feet underground." Scott said" She was never in it." Lydia said" She was Allison's aunt. And a total sociopath." Kira said" You don't have to talk about it now if you don't want to." Malia said" Um, yes, he does." Scott said" Yeah, she's right. You guys should know. You need to know." Stiles said" Alright. Kate was the one who set the fire that killed most of Derek's family." Scott said" some of them survived, like Cora, and Peter." Lydia said" A very angry Peter." Scott said" Yeah, he's the one who bit and turned me." Lydia said" and the one who finally caught up to Kate and killed her." Stiles said" and we saw her buried." Scott said" no. We saw a casket, remember? She wasn't in it. The Calaveras heard that Kate had been killed by an Alpha's claws. They wanted to make sure she was really dead. Her body was healing. More and more, as she got closer to a full moon. She was coming back. So they switched out the bodies. They took her. If a hunter is bit, they have to take their own life before they change. The Calaveras, they treat the code like law. They make it their responsibility to enforce it." Malia said" Good for her. I wouldn't do it either." Scott said" would you kill a dozen people to get out? Because that's what she did." Kira said" So Kate's a werewolf now?" Scott said" I don't know. You know, there's a saying, sometimes the shape you take reflects the person you are." Lydia said" What kind of shape is a sociopathic bitch?" Then the Jeep went out of control, I held onto Scott tightly. Scott and Stiles jumped out once the jeep stopped, Braeden said" What happened?" As she walked to us,  Stiles said" I don't know. It felt like we hit something." Braeden said" Scott, we need to get there by night. It's too dangerous otherwise." Scott looked at Stiles, Stiles said" Go." Scott said" Not without you." Stiles said" Dude, someone needs to find Derek. We'll figure something out. We always do. Just go." Stiles took me from Scott's arms and held me on his hip, Stiles put me down and lifted the hood of the jeep up. Then Scott talked to Kira, then he left, I said" Scott!" I ran after him, but was stopped by Kira, she crouched down, saying" it'll be okay, Maya, it will." She stood up and held My hand, Malia said" Stiles, I don't think we hit something. I think something hit us." Then I saw Malia hand Stiles a spike thingy.
Stiles was working on the jeep, Lydia said" maybe we should just walk." Stiles said" Hey, I will never abandon this jeep. You understand me? Ever. Ever." Malia said" Work faster, Stiles. There's something out here with us." I whimpered, Lydia smiled at me and held my hand since I was sitting next to her. I said" does Stiles wanna marry the Jeep?" Lydia said" possibly." Soon it got dark, and Lydia had to help Stiles, Kira got her sword out, Stiles said" Lydia, could you please hold the light still for a second? It's really hard to see anything if you keep shaking it like that." Lydia said" I'm shaking it like this because we're in the middle of nowhere with your broken down jeep and we're being attacked by yet another razor-clawed monster. And I'm terrified." Stiles said" Well, just be slightly less terrified. And hold this." Lydia held something, then said" What's this?" Stiles said" I don't know. I'm hoping it's not important." Lydia said" oh, god." I looked out, and saw something move, I tilted my head and then got onto all fours and started cautiously walking towards it. I sniffed the air then continued, I growled at it and whimpered, I got closer and saw a skull, I jumped back, screaming" Malia!" Then ran and hid in the jeep, I heard Malia growl then she running after it. Then I heard Kira running after Malia, I scooted under the seat and whimpered, wanting my alpha. I heard Stiles said" Maya, please come out, come on, it's safe." I didn't budge, he sighed then I heard Malia and Kira get in, then we started driving before the jeep stopped again. Stiles said" You... you please don't do that ever again!" Malia said" Do what?" Stiles said" I... I thought you just took off. I thought you were running." Malia said" I was running." Stiles said" No, I mean, like, I thought you were leaving." Malia said" I wouldn't leave without you." Stiles said" really?" Malia said" I would never leave without you. Them I would leave." Stiles said" Yeah. Uh, it's progress." I fell asleep.
