These Vengeful Hearts
“So you’re doing this for what? Like revenge or something?” - “Or something. I’m not becoming one of them. Not really. I’m joining so I can destroy the Red Court.”
After his little brother gets kicked out of the school because someone put a target on his back, Stiles decides that the Red Court's time is up. The Red Court. A prestigious little group of high school bullies that think they can get away with everything just because nobody’s figured out who they are yet. But Stiles is going to figure out the truth, and he's going to take them down.
From the inside.
Together with his best friend Kira, Stiles comes up with a plan. One that is more than successful. Within a week, Stiles becomes a new member of the Red Court and meets his partner Lydia Martin. She's the resident genius at Beacon Hills' High School, Devenford Prep's biggest rival. The Red Court, however, does operate on a bigger scale. They like to ruin lives and reputation all over Beacon County.
His first job is an easy one. Break up the alleged relationship between Golden Boy Brett Talbot and his current girlfriend. It takes nothing more than a quick picture for the poor girl to make a very public scene. Brett seems more amused than heartbroken, and on the next day, he's running into Stiles three times. Turns out, it's not a coincidence.
Lydia tells Stiles to stay away from Brett, reminding him that someone was mad enough to put in a request to break him up with his previous girlfriend - despite the consequences. But trying to convince Brett that he's not date-worthy is about as useless as convincing himself that he hates Lydia. Before Stiles has the chance to figure out how to go on from here, someone puts in a request for ruining Kira's life, and he is threatened because Brett can't stay away. Stiles doesn't really want him to.
Taking down the Red Court becomes harder when Stiles learns that everyone around him has secrets, and everything changes once someone ends up dead. This isn't just about revenge anymore. This is about a Red Court member running loose, ready to protect the Red Court — or to get what they want and take down whoever is standing in their way.
Before starting his revenge, Stiles was ready to sacrifice everything for his brother because he has Kira and his dad in his corner. Now, with Brett waking up next to him, and Lydia becoming one of his closest friends, Stiles isn't sure he's ready to risk everything anymore. But he needs to do something, or his life isn't the only one that will be ruined forever.
