"It's different being back here after being gone for so long..." "Why did you leave in the first place?" "It's a long story that I don't really want to go into detail about. Let's just say it starts bad and ends bad, too." When 16 year old Aria Hale returned to Beacon Hills with her brother, Derek, the last thing she expected was her friends to welcome her back with open arms. She had abandoned them when she was merely 10 years old and even when it hadn't been her choice, she still hadn't forgiven herself. After living on the constant run, Aria had no clue how she was going to adjust to a normal life. She was still learning how to handle the ropes of being a teenage werewolf and the last thing she needed was to be worrying about English finals. Aria only came back for one thing, and one thing only: To avenge her sister's death. Little did she know that her stay in Beacon Hills was going to be much longer and even more so chaotic than she could have ever anticipated.
