Later that night Lydia and I sat in front of her computer. As she powered it up encrypted codes scrolled down the screen leading to a box asking for a cipher key.

"Just like your math notes..." I said to Lydia as my eyes scanned the screen.

Stiles hovered behind us and paced around. Lydia took a deep breath and began typing a name, she typed the name Allison.

"Oh Lydia I'm so sorry.." I said and placed a hand on her shoulder.

"Oh my god." Stiles said and shoved his head between Lydia and I.

"It's a list." Lydia said.

"It's not just a list, it's a hit list and all of our names are on it." I said and scrolled through it.

"Well I'm not on it, I'm human." Stiles said and I turned around and hit him in the head.

"Ow!!" He yelped at me.

"Guys there are still two other lists." Lydia said and turned her head to look at us.

"Well looks like we have two more codes to figure out." I sighed and plopped back in the chair.

"I'll go talk to Scott and my dad tomorrow you guys stay here and do your weird little power thing." Stiles said and left the room.

I gave Lydia a reassuring pat on her leg and stood up to give her some space.


I bolted awake and looked around the dark room. I recognized it as the living room in Lydia's lake house.

"Kira!" I whispered and poked her leg.

She woke up and rubbed her eyes.

"We need to get Lydia she's still awake looking for the key, it's four in the morning she needs to get home and rest." I said and Kira nodded.

We woke up Malia whom was not happy and went and retrieved Lydia. We took her home and I stayed with her.

"Lacey you don't need to stay with me." She said and yawned.

"It's the least I could do Lydia and you need the rest we have school tomorrow, we were at the lake house all weekend looking for that damn cipher code."

"We'll find the code and then we'll find the benefactor Lacey and in the midst of all of this we will figure out about you and your father." Lydia reassured me.

"I sure hope so." I sighed and laid down on the couch.

Lydia gave my hand a reassuring squeeze and went up the stairs to her room. I closed my eyes and pulled the covers over my shoulders.
