Vampire Diaries: Chapter 13
Written by Krystal
Elena stood within the circle of onlookers examining the scene of the crime. She knew Stefan had gotten away, that much she could tell from Matt’s expression, but she had not talked to him about Stefan’s escape yet. Finally, as attention was shifted toward the body, Elena edged toward Matt, asking for details. Matt informs her that Stefan was fine and he had asked Matt to watch out for her. Aware of what this meant, Elena made her way to the lockers and past security; headed toward the boarding house.
Stefan, angry at himself, flung a bookcase across the room sending its contents flying. How could he ever think that he could fit in here at Fell’s Church? Remembering what Matt had told him, Stefan thought about how he felt the weakness and confusion, but then there was darkness. The next thing he knew, he was awoken by Matt, telling him another person had been attacked. He was a killer and no matter what he did it was his nature, so why not indulge it.
Stefan: A killer was what he was. Evil. A creature born in the dark, destined to live and hunt and hide there forever.
Elena: “Stefan,” she whispered, feeling that sadness enter her own soul. She could still see the tinge of red on his lips, but now it awakened a thrill of pity along with the instinctive horror. To be so alone, so alien and so alone…
