AN: Okay, here's the last chapter! I know this story wasn't very popular (certainly not compared to some of my stories), but I'm proud to finish it all the same. Thanks to anyone who read it!

Caroline POV


I blinked open my eyes and stared at the white ceiling in confusion.

"She's up!" a little girl voice shouted.

I turned my head saw Maggie standing next to me back in her human form. He brown hair was brushed behind her ears, and her bright blue eyes stared into mine.

"Hey," I whispered hoarsely, my throat scratching as if I hadn't used it in a long time. My face scrunched up as I tried to figure out what was going on.

"They stabbed you," Maggie explained.

I remembered the blinding pain then, and I stared down at my bandaged abdomen. "How long have I been out?"

"Four days," Maggie told me.

"Four days!" I exclaimed.

"It's fine," Maggie said. "Nothing exciting happened anyway."

I tried to calm myself, breathing through my nose and out through my mouth. "Who stabbed me?"

"A werewolf. I guess they teamed up with the clan," Maggie said.

I just nodded, listening for the others. It wasn't long before I heard their approaching footsteps.

"Are you okay?" Elena blurted, leaning in and placing her hand on my arm worriedly.

I nodded and smiled. "I'm fine."

She sighed with relief and let a woman through. It took me a moment, but I recognized her as the creature mother. "Thank you for helping me. I'm sorry that you got hurt."

"It's fine," I assured her, "and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I'm just glad we got Ally back."

"And these two," the mother broke in.

I peered around her and spotted two little girls.

"This is Annie, and this is Sasha," the mother said, pointing to the girl around Ally's age and the small five-year old.

I grinned and waved weakly. "Hi."

The little girl giggled, and the older one waved back.

It was great how everything worked out. "I'm glad."

"So am I, and I'll never forget this," the mother said, sounding completely genuine.

I stayed silent, but I nodded. I would never forget them either. I now knew that I had rightly helped someone else, and that made all the difference.
