Vampire Diaries: Chapter 11
Written by Krystal

Elena stumbled down the dark corridor until the lights suddenly flicked on and she found herself in the presence of familiar lockers. A voice range out near her and Elena turned to see Bonnie and Meredith headed her way. Happier than ever to see her friends, Elena rushes to them demanding to know where they went. Too scared to continue working, Elena suggests the girls quit for the night, but Meredith eyes her suspiciously.

All through the weekend and the next week, Elena and the girls worked on the Haunted House. This left little time for Stefan, but the most frustrating part was Stefan’s continued resistance to be alone with Elena and the mystery that still surrounded him. Stefan never spoke about his family or life before Fell’s Church and refused to answer her questions, but every once in a while she could sense his true love for her. These happy days came less and less now though and Elena began to feel the distance growing between them.

Elena: “You!” she said, astounded. “What do you think you’re doing here?” She looked from him to the French doors, which were indeed open, showing the side lawn. “Do you always just walk into other people’s houses uninvited?”
