Vampire Diaries: Chapter 4
Written by Katie
Edited by Rose / Krystal

By the time Elena reached her locker she was almost in tears, but she couldn’t let anyone at school see her cry. As soon as the last bell rang, Elena raced to get home, but when she got there the house was empty. She had assumed that in the comfort of her own home the tears would come easily, but they refused to flow. As she looked around the living room, she started thinking of the past, her parents, Matt and even Stefan. Finally, the tears flowed from her eyes at the humiliation and frustration surrounding Stefan.

Elena didn’t understand why she was letting a complete stranger get to her like this. She never understood how she made boys nervous, but when she talked to Stefan her pulse raced and her knees became weak. As Elena pondered all things Stefan, Aunt Judith came through the front door calling her name waking her from her reverie. As she looked around, she realized she wasn’t ready to face anyone just yet, so she slipped out the back door not knowing where she was going. As she exited the back porch the answer of where to go came to her suddenly; she’d go visit her parents at the cemetery. It was a long walk, but one she had grown accustomed to the last three years since their death.
