As I watched Katherine snap Elena's neck, a chill of anger and hatred ripped through my body like a hurricane. Every ounce of my being was telling me to get upset and kill Katherine myself. But I couldn't. The Vervain in my system was still overpowering, and I couldn't move; let alone kill her.
I didn't want to look and see my brother's face. I knew he would be as much of an emotional wreck as I was.
Though, deep in the back of my mind, I knew I had no reason to be upset.
And I couldn't be sure, but it felt like I was witnessing a miracle in the making. Katherine had killed Elena; she'd snapped her neck so fast I barely had time to see it twist around. It broke my heart. Never did I think I would have to watch my angel being murdered. Especially by Katharine.
And then, suddenly and wonderfully, everything turned around. Just like I knew it would.
Everything was going just as I planned. No, better than I had planned. It was going brilliantly. Damon and Stefan belong to me once again, and that Elena bitch is finally dead.
So why do I have a feeling that something bad is going to happen?
Nevertheless, I must finish what I set out to do.
That's when I heard the footsteps, and that's when everything started spiraling downward. As fast as I could, I turned round to face the noise. But there was nothing there; I knew it was a lie. I knew that I wasn't just hearing things.
"Stefan, what was that noise?" I look over at his face and notice his dormant expression. "Awww, someone doesn't know how to handle their Vervain. No matter, I'll play with you when you wake up."
I moved over to him and was about to loosen his chains slightly when I heard another slight noise from behind me. But, yet again, when I turned around nothing was there.
"Damon sweetheart, what was that noise?" I snarl at him. He knows how I get anything I want; I can see it by the look on his face. He's terrified; and rightfully so.
He answers with a simple, "What noise sugarplum?" He's mocking me now. I know it even before that disgusting smirk comes on his face.
I rush at him and latch my fingers around his neck. He doesn't need the air, but I can sense the discomfort radiating off of him.
"WHAT WAS THAT NOISE!" My teeth jump out of my gums and come dangerously close to his face. So close that I can see every pore on his gorgeous skin. And all he does is smirk and nod his head, gesturing behind me. But I don't dare take my eyes off of his.
And that's when I knew I was royally fucked.
I woke up as quietly as I could. I knew I was dead, I knew my neck was twisted around; I knew Katherine had killed me. But I also knew that Damon and I's relationship was more serious than anyone else ever knew about. We had been sharing blood for a while now. Neither of us thought that it would be this beneficial though.
From where I was lying on the ground I could see everything. Every sense was heightened and it was glorious. It was so easy to drift off into a daydream about how different everything felt now, but how it still felt exactly the same. Though I knew I had something important to do.
Before I moved my eyes to where I knew they had to go, I looked at Stefan. His expression of surprise and anger, the tear escaping his eye, the feeling of happiness entering his mind. Everything made me want to help him right then. But I couldn't.
I stood up without making a single sound, which impressed me even more. Katherine had Damon by the neck and was about half an inch from tearing off his nose. They seemed to be having an argument, a silent one though. No words were spoken, yet it felt like they were screaming at each other. His eyes locked wit mine for a fraction of a second and I could feel the fear rushing through him.
And then anger surged out from every crevice of my body, and I rushed forward before I could even think to do so.
The discomfort in my neck vanished as quickly as it had arrived. My body slumped over from my weight and crashed to the floor. Luckily, I was facing the room and I could tell what was happening.
Elena had gotten Katherine by surprise. Just like I told her she needed to do. I was slightly surprised that she had been able to keep her focus through the changing process. I know how distracting that can be at first.
Ironically, while I had been thinking about how Elena stayed focused, I had missed how everything turned out. The only thing I could think of was how right I had been about everything.
So ridiculously right it was crazy.
I couldn't stop a small, true smile from escaping my lips.
