Scott gets bitten by a rogue Alpha and there is no way Stiles is letting the Hales have him.
He brings Scott.
Horrible idea. Terribly bad idea.
Turns out what he thought was just a smart but mundane killer is actually a terribly dumb but rabid Alpha. It finds them at the same time as Stiles’s twitchy nose sniffs out the missing half of the dead body. He has no warning before it’s on them and he realizes that the smell that he thought was just a rotting half-corpse was the Alpha.
Stiles manages to scratch it across the nose. It heals almost instantly but the scratch distracts it from digging its teeth into Scott’s side. Fucking perfect. Scott can barely run on a normal day, let alone when he’s bleeding profusely. Scott would never make it and Stiles isn’t strong enough to carry him. He’s also not leaving him behind.
Foxes are thinkers not fighters, so Stiles knows it’s a losing battle even as he puts himself between Scott and the rogue. The Alpha howls. Stiles shrinks back reflexively but he doesn’t move. He’s nothing if not loyal. He’s also about twelve seconds away from peeing himself.
Multiple howls answer and Stiles breathes a sigh of relief. About fucking time someone showed up to deal with this shit. The Alpha’s attention turns to the oncoming werewolves. Stiles can hear them crashing through the brush and that is totally his cue to leave. He hauls Scott to his feet and they stumble off into the trees. The rogue’s howls turn from anger to pain to silence and Stiles doesn’t even feel bad for him.
