Inspired by a prompt, a little snippet of what could be if a put myself into gear. It's going to follow a very similiar storyline to season line but not really if that makes sense. I hope you all enjoy and if you do, please leave a review and tell me what you think and what you would like to see.

Prologue: Bringing out the Red Carpet

The car ride was as always boring. There wasn't anything to do and every time I tried to talk with Derek, he'd just brush me off. He wasn't like Laura who'd made small talk, played silly games, sure it was what Derek would call demeaning but it was better than sitting here in silence. Then again if Laura were here we wouldn't need to make this stupid trip to god knows where. She's been missing for months, no letters, e-mails, phone calls, 'nada'. It was like she disappeared off the face of the earth, or the more likely conclusion, being that she was dead.

"Do you think Laura's dead?" I asked, looking to Derek for a response. I could usually count on Derek to always tell me the truth. Sometimes it was a good thing, and sometimes it was a bad thing, and at the moment I really wished it would be one of those times. Derek calling me an idiot and that Laura was fine. That she couldn't be taken down so easily, 'because she was an Alpha and Alphas even without a pack can't be taken down easily. That's what I hoped he would tell me but from the grim expression on Derek's face I knew it wouldn't be one of those times.

"Yes," He said gravely, keeping his eyes on the road.

I nodded slowly, watching the road. Feeling an over abundance of emotion overcoming me, the most eminent being fear.

If Laura was gone, then that meant the pack was weaker. It would make us more susceptible to attacks not only from other packs but by hunters as well. Even with Derek and I being together we were nothing without an Alpha, not as powerful, not as faster.

We weren't any better off than an omega.

"Hey." Derek said placing a reassuring hand on my shoulder. "Relax, we'll be fine, just take it easy all right. We're almost there."

"I'm fine." I said pushing Derek's hand away. I didn't need my big brother to mollycoddle me. I was sixteen goddamn it.

Derek looked irritated for a moment but he went back to the road. Well now was as good time as any to ask.

"Where's 'there' exactly, we've been driving for hours." I couldn't help letting out a small whine at that last part, and I was about to go on a rant how about being cooped up in a car could drive a person crazy and how it was unhealthy etcetera, but then I sensed Derek's agitation, his anger. I could hear his teeth grinding, his heart pounding.

I couldn't help feeling the fear from before escalating into terror. There weren't many things that could make Derek that could make Derek angry. Actually there was just one thing, and honestly I wasn't too crazy about it myself.

"Beacon Hills." He voice calm.

The fear in my gut quickly transformed into rage.

"Are you crazy! Why in the hell are we going back there! Don't you remember what happened-"

Derek pressed the brakes on the car, stopping it indefinitely leaving me to surge forward violently. I was about to scream at Derek for his horrible driving but then I saw Derek's glare and promptly shut up.

"I want you to listen carefully." He said slowly, making an effort to enunciate all his words to have the most intimidating effect. "We are going to Beacon Hills, and we are going to find Laura, dead or alive. We have to we don't have a choice." Derek turned back to the road and started driving.

I could feel a few hot tears starting to grow and viciously wiped them away, looking at anything that didn't involve my brother, which just happened to be the window. It didn't take long for the large sign that read "Beacon Hills'. I really, really, didn't like this.
