“Guys- I told you multiple times. I can’t teach you now,” Scott tried to shake off his betas. Liam and his twin sister, Isabel, exchanged nervous looks.
“But Scott- the full moon is coming. We need to learn how to control ourselves- and Liam almost ripped off our math teacher’s arms,” Isabel pleaded. Liam nodded violently even though he knew it wasn’t a good thing. She almost broke a cheerleader’s arm when she insulted Isabel’s crop-top but she didn’t say anything.
“I have a math test and I have a date with Kira later. I promise I’ll teach you tomorrow or the day after,” he said and when he saw Stiles, he ran off to meet him.
“True Alpha, my ass,” Isabel muttered as she looked at her brother. He was on his phone and looked to be debating with himself.
“What is it?” she asked.
“I’m debating whether or not to call him,” he murmured.
“Brett? He’s a... werewolf?” she whispered the last part.
“Yeah- I could sense it during the game a few days ago. He knows we’re one too- he made sure I didn’t transform when an asshole rammed into me,” he replied.
“Do it,” Isabel said and grabbed Liam’s phone from him.
“Isa!” he reached for it back but she pulled back. “We need him- your eyes are glowing. Stop that,” she slapped his arm, lightly.
He growled back but let her text, Brett.
Brett’s reply came instantly.
What’s in it for me?
Isabel showed it to her brother who pondered over the question. He took the phone from her.
Integrity. You need it.
“Liam!” she yanked his phone and called Brett instead.
“What is it?” Brett sounded annoyed when he picked up.
“Hey, it’s Isa,” she spoke.
“Yeah,” his voice had gone softer.
“Please can you help us. Scott’s busy with girl problems and math issues and the full moon-” she pleaded but he cut her off.
“Meet me at my school field at 5,” he said and hung up.
“So?” Liam arched an eyebrow. Isabel had scratched his arm and her long nails had sort of cut him. He healed fast but was still shooting daggers at her.
“Devenford at 5.”
“Brett, you coming?” one of Brett’s lacrosse friends called over to him.
“No! Go on without me,” he called back and set the sticks down.
Once the school parking lot was clear, he texted Isabel and Liam to show themselves.
“How’d you know we were here already?” Isabel asked, getting out of the hiding space she and Liam were crouching behind.
“I’m your teacher. I know my shit,” he smirked.
Liam growled at him in response.
“You really do need some help,” Brett went on.
“Are you gonna lecture us or help us?” Isabel snapped. Brett turned to her and sized her up.
“Stop checking my sister out,” Liam’s eyes glowed and his claws were out.
Brett sighed and got out a piece of paper. “This mantra helped me control my anger.” He handed it to Isabel who read it in her mind before handing it to her brother.
“The sun, the moon, the truth,” she murmured.
“What’s it mean?” Liam asked.
“It solves this riddle: what 3 things cannot be hidden?” he replied.
“Oh,” Liam handed the paper back to him.
“Keep it so you don’t forget,” he winked at them and bent down to pick up a bag full of lacrosse equipment.
“I’ll get the car started,” Liam said and ran to the empty parking lot. The only other car was the twins’ stepdad’s car parked under a tree.
“I thought you didn’t have a license yet?” Brett asked Isabel, tilting his head slightly.
“Stalking me?” she chuckled but shook her head. “Don’t tell David though,” she added.
“Can’t promise that,” Brett smirked as he looked at her.
Isabel was pretty tall for her age and was the same height as Brett. She felt insecure every time a guy sized her up because apparently only short girls are considered attractive.
“You’re insecure,” Brett remarked.
“About what?” Isabel tilted her head. “I have many-” she blurted out and wished she hadn’t.
He chuckled and opened his mouth to say something but the sound of a car’s horn going off interrupted him.
“Can we get going before dad notices his fucking car missing?” Liam yelled. He was mostly disgusted by seeing his twin sister and his enemy flirting but didn’t say it out loud.
“What was that?” Liam asked his twin as she slammed the passenger seat door shut.
“What was what?” she blinked.
“You like him?” he gagged.
“What? No!” she shook her head.
“I don’t want to see anything funny,” he warned her. “Especially since we have to go to him on the night of the full moon.”
“What?” she tilted her head.
“Yeah, he just texted me,” he showed her his phone.
“Keep your eyes on the road,” Isabel pointed to the road before reading Brett’s text.
Liam was right. Brett had instructed them to meet him at Devenford the night of the full moon.
“I can’t believe it,” Liam muttered. “Brett’s actually a better helper than Scott.”
“Hey,” Isabel defended Scott. “He’s a senior. He has a lot on his mind.”
“You’re just saying that cause you had a crush on him 2 years ago when you saw him playing lacrosse,” he smirked at her.
“Watch out!” Isabel shrieked.
Liam slammed on the car brakes and the car stopped just in time.
“We could’ve fucking died,” Isabel scowled at him.
“Death? We could’ve been caught!” Liam scowled.
“It was your reckless driving,” Isabel crossed her arms.
“It was your fault because you fall for guys too easily,” Liam yelped.
“Why the fuck are we even talking about my love life?” she questioned.
“I don’t know,” Liam scratched his head.
“Shut up and just drive. Please.”
“Are you sure?” Scott asked the twins for the hundredth time as he paced back and forth. Kira grabbed a hold of him to calm him down.
“They’ll be fine,” she assured him with a kiss.
“Yeah- Brett’s had a shit ton of experience. Go! Have fun on your date,” Isabel beamed.
“Yeah, it’s not so bad. All I did my first time was shred things up and tear shit apart,” Malia grinned.
“I had to pay my mom 5 hundred bucks for the damage you caused and tell her we were robbed,” Lydia exclaimed. “Now every time I enter my house a fucking security alarm goes off.”
“Oops,” Malia winced.
“Okay- let’s go,” Isabel said while the 2 of them argued. Scott and Kira had slipped out for their date. Stiles was fast asleep on Scott’s couch while doing his history homework.
“Stiles- wake up,” Isabel woke him up.
Their stepdad was home so they couldn’t borrow his car and Stiles offered to drive them to Devenford.
All week long the twins had been reciting the mantra Brett taught them and it had worked pretty well. Liam had almost lashed out on a few sophomore assholes but Isabel didn’t blame him. They were sexualizing her and Hayden- and she even cheered him on until Scott interfered.
“If you need me- call me,” Stiles pulled out his phone. Liam and Isabel watched it go out of battery.
“Well... if you need me... you had the chance,” Stiles said.
“They’ll be fine.”
Brett had snuck up on them. The sun was getting ready to set.
“You should go,” he informed Stiles.
“I’ve had enough experience with werewolves on a full moon night so stay. Later- be safe though,” he said and drove off.
“Why do you have chains with you?” Isabel asked, nervously.
“They’re plan B,” he said and led them inside. The school was the same as Isabel and Liam remembered it to be.
The school colors were displayed everywhere with pride and the anti-bullying posters were hung up in every corner. Liam and Isabel exchanged eye rolls as they passed by a corny one. They were both thinking the same thing.
Like that stopped anyone.
“Adam,” Brett acknowledged a guy that looked around their ages. He was also holding chains.
“Which one’s mine?” he asked, looking at the twins. His eyes lingered on Isabel longer.
“I’ll take... this one,” Brett decided and pushed Liam to Adam.
Liam scowled at Brett. “If you touch her I swear on my werewolf powers that I’ll rip your throat out and boil your teeth.”
“Boil my teeth?” Brett chuckled.
“Don’t look at me,” Liam growled. “It sounded cooler when Isa said it.”
The 3 boys looked at Isabel who fingered her rubber band instead.
“Not as innocent as you look, huh?” Brett glanced at Isabel as they walked down the hallway. Liam and Adam were headed the opposite way so the twins don’t find each other easily and kill each other. Brett had mentioned he wouldn’t have minded it happening but after a few threats from both of them, he formed their current plan.
“Crazy how different we are on the inside than we appear on the outside, isn’t it?” Isabel mocked back and stuck her tongue out.
She tensed as she felt something happening.
“We need to get you chained up,” Brett murmured as he shut the classroom closed.
“I don’t think this is... safe,” Isabel murmured as she looked around. The tables and chairs made it so she could easily do anything Brett when she was transformed and out of control.
“Scared of hurting me?” he shot her a cocky look.
“Not a bit,” she replied.
“Good because we’re not gonna be in here,” he pointed at the supply closet in the back. “That’s where we’ll be hiding.”
Isabel licked her lips as she opened the door. The closet was empty and looked like it had been recently painted.
“Don’t worry about ruining the paint. The school always thinks some raccoons get in and destroy everything.”
“I know that. I used to fucking go here,” she snapped. Her anger levels were rising.
Brett pinned her to the wall and pulled his chains out. Isabel growled at him but luckily, she hadn’t transformed just yet.
“Isa,” Brett said, struggling to hold her down.
“What?” she snapped, fighting back, still pinned to the wall.
He grabbed her throat and smashed his lips against hers. She kissed him back and let go of his hand that she was trying to squeeze very hard out of her uncontrollable anger. His hands slipped over to her body and before she knew it, he had pulled back in triumph. Isabel slumped down with her back to the wall, defeated.
“Fuck,” she growled and saw that her claws were out. She was transforming. The full moon had begun.
“Chant it,” Brett said, crouching down.
“No,” she growled, louder.
“Chant it,” he repeated, also getting louder.
“The sun. The moon. The truth,” Isabel choked the words out like they were pure poison.
“Keep saying it,” Brett stood up and watched her struggle with herself.
“The sun,” she panted.
“The moon,” she went on.
“And the truth,” her breathing wasn’t calming down.
“Keep saying it,” Brett pushed.
“The sun, the moon, the truth.”
“Isa!” Liam, who had been walking, sprinted into a run. Isabel grinned at the sight of her twin.
They had survived their first full moon.
“How are you? Did he touch you? Did he fucking hurt you?” Liam started asking so many questions.
Brett and Isabel exchanged a secret look before she spoke. She had remembered the kiss very well. Too well, to be honest.
“No. He didn’t do anything,” Isabel decided. She swore she saw hurt in Brett’s eyes. Liam was still figuring out the lying part in his werewolf abilities believed her and turned to Adam.
“Those chains were pure evil,” he scowled.
Adam defended himself and soon enough, the 2 argued as they walked out of the school.
Isabel started following after them but Brett had pulled her back with a gentle tug on her arm.
“Nothing?” he pursed his lips.
“I thought you only did it to get me to calm down. I thought you did it to all your werewolves in train-” she spluttered but he licked his lips and kissed her to shut her up.
“No. I did it because I wanted to,” he murmured in her ear, giving it a playful bite. Isabel smiled as she snuggled her face into the side of his neck.
“How many more of these full moons do I have to go through until I can control myself?” she asked, looking him in the eye.
“Depends on how much you repeat the phrase,” he said, wrapped an arm around her waist and one on her ass.
“The sun, the moon, the truth,” she ruffled his hair.
“No,” he chuckled and shot her a sly smirk. “This one’s new and completely created by me.”
“Daddy,” he kissed her and lightly bit her lip as he pulled apart.
