When Laura Hale dies in a car crash, her heart ends up in Stiles Stilinski. Stiles can’t help but look up the family of his supposedly anonymous donor, which gets more complicated when he starts dreaming about the dead woman who gave him his heart.
His hand trembles but he forces himself out of the Jeep. The Hale house is set in the middle of nowhere, deep in the Preserve. The residents – and he knows there are some by the cars in the drive – had to have heard him coming. His Jeep rumbled down the road loud enough to wake the dead, so waiting in the Jeep only makes him seem like a weird stalker.
He shouldn’t be here. He shouldn’t even have the address or the name attached – Laura Hale – but he can’t help himself sometimes. He has the need to know and the skills to find out. His dad always said it would make Stiles a great detective someday. Unsaid was the caveat of whether he would live that long.
He has to walk slowly up the driveway, careful of the stitches in his chest and limbs weak from two weeks of enforced bed rest. He’s only a few days out of the hospital and he’s technically not supposed to be exerting himself. His dad would kill him if he knew Stiles had even left the house, but Stiles had to.
He knocks on the door and doesn’t even have to wait a second before a girl about a year older than him opens the door.
