Elena stared at her reflection in the mirror as she pulled her hair up in front of her shoulders. She sighed. "Another year of being a nobody…"
Tyler looked at himself and checked to make sure his teeth were perfectly white. "Ladies, here I come," he smirked.
Anna unbuttoned the top button on her vest and examined it, posing differently to check herself out. She buttoned it. Then unbuttoned it. Then buttoned it again. "Nope. Too much showing. Too risky."
Damon smirked at himself and pulled on his leather jacket. "You are one sexy motherf—"
Bonnie stared at herself with determination. "You will get a boyfriend this year. You will get a boyfriend."
Jeremy examined his fingernails. "I ssssseriously need a manicure…" He looked up to the mirror and gave himself an 'oh-well' look. "But I can't. Not yet, at least."
"-ucker!" Stefan told himself, finishing the same sentence Damon had been saying in the other room. He spiked the front of his hair one more final time.
Meredith put on more lip gloss and winked at herself in her bathroom mirror. "Even hotter than last year," she said. She flipped her hair over her shoulder. "Hell yeah."
Rebekah drummed her fingernails on her vanity table and bit her lip as she looked at her reflection. "There has to be more to life than just running the school…"
Caroline slipped on another ring over her black polished fingernails. She looked up as she ran her hand through her straight blonde hair. Clear from the blonde roots to the black tips. "Here we go."

"Elena!" Bonnie yelled from across the school parking lot. Elena turned and lightly smiled at her friend. She held her bag close to her as she quickly scurried over to meet her.
Anna came out from around the corner of a car and stood next to Bonnie as she smiled at Elena.
"Hey, Anna," Elena greeted. "You look good," she complimented, lying. Anna was wearing her nerd outfit just like last year, and Elena and Bonnie hated being seen with her. Anna knew it, so always left them when either of them gave her 'that look.'
"Thanks. Mom took me shopping and there were so many cute skirts!" she smiled.
Bonnie rolled her eyes. When Anna said "cute skirts!" she meant long tan ones that looked like something an old teacher would have on.
Jeremy got out of his car. He pulled his shirt down over the top of his pants and closed his door gently. He looked around him, then reached into his bag and held his hand mirror right at the opening, just enough for him to check his reflection without anyone seeing it. He smiled at himself and flipped his long hair out of his face as he put the mirror back, content with his appearance.
Bonnie caught sight of Jeremy and smiled. "Jer!" she called.
Jeremy looked up and forced himself to smile as he saw his "girlfriend." "Ohhhh God," he mumbled before he started walking over to them. When he reached them, he put his arm around Bonnie's shoulders and kissed the top of her head. "Hey, precious. How was summer camp?" he asked.
Bonnie smiled up at him. "It was ok. But you weren't there, so it wasn't anything to brag about," she said brightly.
Jeremy fake laughed like he was flattered and looked away from her face while his 'laugh' turned into more of a groan. But, Bonnie and the other girls were totally oblivious to everything, so they figured he was happy as could be.
Tyler turned the key of his car and stopped the engine. He looked over at Meredith and raised his eyebrows. "Ready, babe?"
Meredith checked herself in his rearview mirror and chuckled. "Hell yeah," she said, turning to look at him.
"One for the money?"
Meredith smirked and leaned over the arm rest between them to kiss him. He moaned as she pulled away and made sure to make a squishing noise as their lips parted, because that was "sexy."
They both opened their doors and stepped out into the light, immediately posing for whoever happened to be looking at them.
Tyler locked his car and put his arm around her waist as they walked towards their corner where the rest of their people were. It was an area near the druggies, behind the busses. As they turned the corner, they both smirked at all the diss-ers, play-ahs, sexy-z, and wannabes.
A couple of the guys they walked by whistled at Meredith. While she smirked, Tyler pulled her tighter to him and glared at the guys as he kissed her head.
"Home sweet home," she mumbled to herself.
Caroline trudged down the sidewalk in her black clothing. She was in walking distance from the school, so her mother insisted she 'get exercise.' Translated: her mother was too lazy to get up in the morning and take her.
Caroline moved her hand up under her hair and cupped the back of her neck, stretching after sleeping in an odd position the previous night. She heard a low voice call her name, and she looked up to see she was closer to the school than she had thought. The person that called for her was Finn Something-or-other. The dude was older looking, but showed himself to be a reliable friend.
He was standing next to his pick-up truck, their two other friends sitting in the back; we'll call them GirlGoth and BoyGoth, just because I can't think of any better names.
Caroline trotted across the school yard until she reached them, then stopped to catch her slightly winded breath. "Hey," she greeted, looking around instead of at them.
"You ok? You look a little out of it," BoyGoth commented, leaning closer to examine her.
GirlGoth snorted. "She always looks out of it," she retorted and the two of them chuckled at Caroline.
Caroline took a deep breath and gave Finn a sideways look, to which he returned with a 'sorry, I can't do anything' look.
"Where's Sage?" Caroline asked.
"She'll be here any time," Finn answered. "She called and said not to panic. But in all honesty, I hadn't realized she was gone until she called."
Caroline smiled. Now, Sage Caroline could handle. She and Finn were her only friends in the school. And knowing Sage, she was going to make a point when she came to the first day of school.
Which she did.
Caroline heard a low thumping sound and turned to see Sage's black Mercedes come strolling down the road. She was a ways away, but Caroline knew what the noise was. Sage had her music pumping music louder than the town allowed. But of course, she didn't care.
As Sage grew closer, the noise became too much for some people, and they covered their ears as they looked for the source of the disturbance. Caroline tried to decipher what the music was this time, but didn't recognize the lyrics.
Sage stopped her car in the parking lot and turned the music off abruptly. She got out of the car and waved 'hi' at everyone giving her dirty looks. She strolled over to us with a grin on her face. She recognized the confused look on Caroline's face and started explaining. "'Ur So Gay,' Katy Perry."
"Ready?" Sage checked, and they all immediately looked over to where they knew Jeremy Gilbert was standing. Like Sage had planned, he was standing with his arms crossed, looking around at everyone like he was paranoid. Anytime anyone mentioned 'Gay,' he did that. They all started laughing.
Rebekah sneered in her car as her friend opened the passenger's door. "I hate that song," Rebekah complained, getting out herself.
"Not that bad," Katherine commented.
"Shut up," Rebekah snapped. "That song sucks, and you know it."
Katherine rolled her eyes in annoyance and turned from Rebekah to start heading to their group – the popular girls.
The other five girls of the group were sitting on the top of a picnic table, looking "casual" as they flipped their hair back and closed their eyes to "sun bathe."
"Ladies," Rebekah announced as she came to a stop beside them. "There are new guys this year, and from what I've heard," she explained, getting up on the table and sitting in the middle of the attention, "they're cute. Like…extremely."
Almost all of the girls started giggling right away as Rebekah beamed. Katherine looked away from the girls in irritation. She looked over at the Goths. That was where she wanted to be… But no. She was stuck in short shorts and pink sweaters and perfectly straight, brown hair.
"Kat," Rebekah called Katherine by her hated nickname. "Come be bitchy with us. It's just not the same without you," she lied, just trying to keep Katherine 'happy.'
"Oh, hold up!" one of the other girls said suddenly. "Who is that?" She was pointing to the old fashioned black car that was pulling up into the school's parking rink.
Rebekah smirked, and Katherine sighed in boredom. "The new guys," they said together.
Damon stepped out of his car, closed the door, and looked to his brother. They had just arrived at the new school, and they were going to walk in there like they owned the place.
"Ready?" he checked, pulling out his Ray Bands.
Stefan had already placed his sunglasses on his face and was flipping up the collar of his leather jacket. He dropped his hands to his sides and looked back at his brother through his shades. "Let's rock this joint," he said with his best brooding face.
Damon flipped on his glasses with one hand as they both started walking away from the cars – in slow motion.
Yeah – When I walk on by,
Girls be lookin' like 'Damn, he fly.'
The wind tossed their hair slightly as they looked at a couple of groups of people they walked by (still in slow motion). The girls of the groups stared in awe and the boys looked both impressed and jealous.
I pay to the beat,
Walkin' on the street with my new LeFreak
Damon smirked and Stefan brooded as they passed through a flock of giggling and blushing girls. One of them actually handed Damon her number with a flirtation look (in slow motion).
This is how I roll:
Animal print pants – outta control!
It's RedFoo with a big afro
They like Bruce Lee, rock at the club yeah!
As they walked parallel to a table full of jocks, some of them nodded (in slow motion) in a 'sup' manner. Stefan returned the nod while Damon lifted his hand in a "wave." They continued walking, feeling like bosses in their matching jackets.
Ahhh – Girl look at that body
Stefan turned his head to look past Damon and spotted a few of relaxed, cool, hardcore girls leaning against a pick-up truck. Stefan hit Damon with his hand (in slow motion), and pointed at the girls.
Ahhh – Girl look at that body
Damon followed his gaze and smirked at the girls in approval (in slow motion). The three girls narrowed their eyes in thought. Two of them ended up putting on a sexy pose, liking what they saw. But the third girl, the blonde, shook her head, mumbled something, turned back to her friends, and rolled her eyes.
Ahhh – Girl look at that body
Stefan smiled lightly. Rejection. That meant a challenge, and that he could live with. He loved having to try to get the ladies, not when they were just throwing themselves at him.
I-I-I-I – I work out!
They stepped into the school (in slow motion). Damon swiped off his glasses, showing off his Baby Blues to the girls walking by. They started strutting down the hall, heading for the administrative office.
When I walk in the spot, this is what I see –
Everybody stops and is starin' at me.
Stefan got a fist bump from a random guy walking past them. Damon was pointed at by two girls talking by their lockers, and he returned the point in a much friendlier manner. One girl had stopped in the middle of the hall, right in their tracks. Both guys knew exactly what to do. When they reached the girl, they both took a narrow step to their side of the girl, and they both kissed opposite sides of her head as they walked past, meeting in the middle of the hall when they had passed her, never missing a step.
I got passion in my pants
And I ain't afraid to show it –
Their steps were in sync as they rounded a corner and passed through a clustered hall of students (in slow motion).
Show it –
Show it –
Someone held out a cigar to Stefan, and he took it and placed it in his mouth, unlit (slow motion!). Damon, without looking, held out a match in front of Stefan's face and Stefan curled his hand around it as he aimed his cigar in the flame. Once lit, Damon shook the flame out and flicked it out of his fingers.
Show it –
Stefan inhaled deeply, took the cigar from his lips, and exhaled smoke slowly into the air above them, waving his head dramatically. He hissed at the sting and smirked. He flicked it out of his hand as they turned another corner into the office. They stopped inside the door and each spread their legs to pose, the door shutting slowly behind them (in slow motion).
I'm Sexy and I Know It
(Regular motion) Stefan pulled his glasses off and blinked strongly against the bright light in the office. Damon pushed pause on his iPod and pulled the ear buds out of his ears. He smiled at his brother. "I love that song."
