Chapter One - A Last Minute Adventure
Cassidy Miles sighed tiredly as she walked out of the bathroom, after taking a long relaxing shower, and walked into her purple and white bedroom. With her most comfortable pajama bottoms and black tank top on, she laid down in her king sized bed and begin to flip through the channels on the TV, hoping to find something to watch boring enough to put her to sleep.
She couldn't sleep without some kind of noise going on, without the noise the two-story white house was to quiet and when it was to quiet, she would begin to hear regular noises that all houses made and become paranoid, which made it hard to fall asleep. She knew it was a weird way to fall asleep, but you could thank her big sister, Parker, for that.
After their mother, Jen, died in a car wreck when Cassidy was five and Parker was thirteen, Parker would tell Cassidy bedtime stories to put her to sleep, only problem was, she would tell scary bedtime stories about houses that came alive and would eat the families that lived in them, scaring the little girl so badly she couldn't sleep and even though Cassidy was older now and knew the stories were not true, she still needed the noise to sleep or she would once again, get no sleep.
Once she found something to watch on TV, she laid the remote down and picked up her cellphone. She debated on calling one of her best friends, Scott McCall until she remembered him mentioning wanting to get a good night sleep before lacrosse practice, he was hoping to make first line this year and actually be able to play instead of riding the bench like Stiles Stilinski, their other best friend.
She knew she could call Stiles, it's not like they haven't talked or hung out alone before, but lately she felt nervous when it was just the two of them. Normally she was out going, confident and even a bit of a flirt, but when it came to Stiles, she felt like a blubbering idiot. It had been that way for the last year, since she realized she had a crush on him, luckily no one but her knew about the crush and she planned to keep it that way by treating Stiles the way she always had and hoped he or Scott never figured out how she really felt.
With the TV quietly playing, she laid back in the bed and waited for sleep to come, but before she could fall fully asleep, she heard a noise at the bedroom window, like someone had thrown a small pebble at it, which was something Stiles and Scott had always done to get her attention.
A big grin come across her face, as she pushed the comforter off of her body and jumped out of bed. She quickly made her way toward the bedroom window and pushed it up then looked down below at her two best friends with a smile still on her face.
"Hey boys, what's up?" Cassidy called down to them. She didn't have to worry about waking anyone up. With Parker at medical school and her father, Carter, working the late shift at the hospital, she was the only one at home as usual.
"Cassidy, Cassidy, let down your hair." Stiles joked, causing her and Scott to chuckle at their goofy friend.
Cassidy pulled her long brown hair over her right shoulder, causing it to land on the windowsill then she called out,"sorry Prince Dorkus, don't think it's going to work."
"Hey!" Stiles called out, acting like he was offended from her nickname, which only made her laugh harder.
Scott laughed along with her then asked,"so are you coming out here or are we going to keep yelling at each other?"
"Hold on, be right there." Cassidy called out to him.
She quickly ran over to her huge walk in closet and grabbed a black hoodie to go over the tank top she was wearing, then she quickly changed out of the black and dark pink pajama bottoms and put on a pair of old blue jeans. As she walked back over toward the window, she slipped on a pair of white tennis shoes.
"OK, coming down." Cassidy called out to them.
The two teen boys watched in surprise as she climbed out of her window and on to a small ledge under the window. She carefully walked over toward a big tree that was beside the house then slowly made her way down until she got to the last branch, which was still several feet from the ground.
"Catch!" Cassidy called out, before she fell backwards from the branch, she trusted that one of the boys would catch her and she was right as she fell easily into Stiles arms.
"Nice catch buddy!" Cassidy said to him, then added as a joke,"if you keep catching things like that, you'll make first string of football or whatever stupid sport it is you two play."
Stiles rolled his eyes as he sat her feet down on the ground then said,"come on Cas, you know we play lacrosse, not football."
"Right, how could I forget." Cassidy said sarcastically, then she turned to look at Scott and said,"speaking of lacrosse, I thought you were staying home tonight to get your beauty rest so you can be the best that you can be tomorrow."
"I was until Stiles showed up out of the blue and tried to sneak into my house." Scott said, as he shot a look toward Stiles, who looked back at him with an innocent look on his face as he shrugged his shoulders, like he had no idea what he was talking about.
"Why are you sneaking into people's houses Stiles?" Cassidy asked him with a laugh.
"Cause I have big news." Stiles called out excitedly, as he threw out his arms to prove the point.
"And what is this big news?" Cassidy asked him, as she folded her arms across her chest. She wasn't surprised by the way he was acting, he was always the over dramatic type, which she was ok with, she honestly thought it was cute and it's what made him unique in her eyes.
"Dad had a call earlier, two joggers found a dead body in the woods earlier and now we are going to go find it." Stiles said with a huge grin, as he pointed to the three of them.
"You want us three to go out in the dark woods, alone, and look for a dead body?" Cassidy asked him, making sure she understand what he was actually saying.
"Yeah." Stiles answered, then asked,"you're not scared are you?"
"Hell no, let's go!" Cassidy called out with a smile, happy for the chance to hang out with her friends, Stiles especially.
Yes!" Stiles cheered out, as he threw an arm around her shoulder then said,"that's my girl. See I told Scott you would want to go, but he thought you would be too scared to go."
"I guess you know me to well Stiles." Cassidy said, as she shot him a small smile.
"Guess I do." Stiles said, as he smiled back at her and felt his heart racing.
As they continued to smile at each other, Scott cleared his throat, getting their attention as he asked,"so are we going then?"
"Yeah, let me go lock up the door and grab my phone." Cassidy said, as she began to walk toward the front of the house.
"Wait, hold on, why did you climb out of your window, isn't your dad still at work?" Scott asked her. He just remembered that her dad always worked the late shifts, meaning she was home alone.
"Yeah, but climbing out of the window seemed more bad-ass than walking out the front door." Cassidy explained with a shrug, like it made all the sense in the world.
The two boys laughed at her comment as she continued to walk toward the front door with Stiles never taking his eyes off of her, once she was inside the house, he cleared his throat and turned his head toward Scott, who was staring at him with a grin on his face.
"What?" Stiles asked him.
"You're drooling." Scott said with a laugh.
"Shut up!" Stiles said back, as he pushed Scott away from him, causing him to laugh even harder.
"Dude, why don't you just ask her out already." Scott said, as he nodded his head toward the house where Cassidy just walked in. He knew Stiles had a huge crush on her for years, but was too scared to do anything about it.
"Cause it's Cassidy freaking Miles, she's one of the prettiest and richest girls at school." Stiles called out, as he glanced over toward the front door, making sure she was still inside the house before he continued,"she could be hanging out with the cool kids at school but instead she's slumming it with us."
"Hey!" Scott called out, feeling offended. "There's nothing wrong with us." He added.
"Who are you kidding Scott, we're losers and everyone knows it." Stiles pointed out, getting himself all worked up over how unfair life was. Guys like him didn't get girls like Cassidy and he knew that, but he couldn't stop the way he felt about her.
"Calm down Stiles." Scott said, as he patted his friend on the shoulder then added,"besides who cares about what others think of us, Cas is our friend and has been since we were little kids."
"Yeah but she could date any guy she wanted, hell she use to date Jackson or did you forget." Stiles said with a disgusted look on his face, he never could understand what she saw in Jackson, she was to good for him even before he become a jerk.
"That was just during middle school, they broke up last year and he barely talks to her now." Scott pointed out.
"I never understood that by the way. If you have someone like Cassidy in your life, why would you want to dump her and not talk to her again?" Stiles wondered out loud.
"Well this is Jackson we're talking about, he never makes sense." Scott answered.
Stiles shook his head, realizing he was getting off the topic, as he said,"anyway, my point is, she can date whoever. Every guy at school would kill to be dating Cassidy, she has her pick of the whole litter, which means she wouldn't date someone like me."
"You never know unless you try." Scott said, then added,"besides you remembered what we said, this year we're going to go after what we want. I'm going to go after first line and you're going to go after Cassidy."
"Yeah." Stiles said with a sigh, then added,"but now that the time has come to do that, I don't know if I can."
"Just do it, what's the worse that can happen?" Scott asked, as they both looked at the front door as it opened and Cassidy walked out.
Stiles watched as she walked toward them then he took a deep breath and slowly released it as he mumbled sarcastically to Scott,"you mean other than embarrassing rejection? Yeah nothing bad could happen at all."
a/n - hey everyone! Every though I have so many other stories going on, I just recently got into Teen Wolf and wanted to start a story about it. This story will kind of follow along with the show, some things will be the same and some will be different but hopefully you all will like it. I also plan for it to be a Isaac/oc/Stiles story. I'm not sure what all is going to happen, I'll mostly be making it up as I go along lol. Anyway, thank you all for reading the first chapter and please let me know what you think. I know this chapter was kind of short, but the next chapter will be them going into the woods and I'll try to get it posted soon. Happy reading :)
