I anxiously wait for Serenity's reaction. She looks shocked and afraid. A knock on the door startles me.
"Chastity, it's Stefan. Damon's gone, can I talk to you?" Stefan says on the other side of the door.
"I'll be back." I tell Serenity.
"Last time you told me that, something bad almost happened." Serenity says and sighs. "Be careful."
I nod and give her the best smile I can and walk out the door, shutting it behind me.
Stefan looks at me with careful eyes. "I am so sorry that happened."
"It's fine, Stefan-"
"It shouldn't have happened." He says. He's obviously upset with his brother. "You're shaking..." He says and sighs.
I bring my hands up and see that they are in fact shaking. I stuff them in my pockets. "Sorry-"
"You have nothing to apologize for. Damon's...not a good person." He squints his eyes at me. "That's crazy..."
I bring my eyebrows together. "What is?" I ask.
"What's your last name?" He asks.
"Dawnwillow, why?" Why does my last name matter at all?
He shakes his head. "No, it's not possible."
"What's not possible? Stefan? You're really starting to worry me." I say and search for an answer in my head. I don't find one.
"I thought there was only one doppelgänger..." Stefan says and keeps looking at my face.
"Stefan, what's a doppelgänger?" I ask, a little frustrated.
"Ah, so you've finally figured it out." I hear a voice to the side of me say. I turn, see Damon and hide behind Stefan. "Relax." He says to me. "I'm not going to hurt you." I don't move.
"Damon," Stefan says. "What's going on?"
"Well Stefan, there's another doppelgänger. If you haven't figured it out already." Damon smirks.
"And what does this mean to you?" Stefan questions him.
"It means that we can put Elena out of danger Stefan!" He says as if it's obvious. Elena, she goes to my school.
"What does this have to do with me?" I ask.
"You're a doppelgänger." Damon says.
"And?" I ask.
"And you're coming with us." Damon starts walking towards me.
"Damon, we can't just hand her over to Klaus." Stefan says.
Damon stops. "And why not?!"
"Chastity's a person, not a back up." Stefan says loudly.
Damon looks at Stefan incredulously. "Don't you want to get Elena out of this?" He points at me. "She's the answer!"
"Damon, Elena won't want this anyway. She won't let someone else take her place." Stefan says.
Damon sneers at Stefan. "We'll see." The next second, he's gone.
Stefan turns around and looks at me. "I'll take care of Damon, you should go back with Serenity." He turns back around and starts walking.
"Wait!" I call out. He turns around. "What's a doppelgänger?"
"It's dangerous. I don't have time to tell you about it. Drew can tell you all about it." He smiles and walks away.
"Who's Drew?" I mutter. I feel a tap on my shoulder and turn around.
A tall handsome, muscular boy about my age with blonde/brown hair stands in front of me.
"I'm Drew." He explains with a smile. At my confused look, he explains further. "I went on a date with Summer..."
I raise my eyebrows and smile. "You and I are going to get along juuuuuusssttt fine, my friend." I tell him.
He laughs, but quickly changes the subject. "So you want to know about the doppelgänger?"
I nod and rub my arms, trying to warm my arms.
He lowers his voice. "Basically, a doppelgänger is an exact duplicate of another person. It's dangerous if a certain person finds out." He says, with a look I can't describe. It's definitely bad though.
"And why am I involved in this?" I ask, not wanting to know the answer for sure.
"Well, you...are the doppelgänger." He says reluctantly.
I sigh. "I kind of figured. So who do I look like? Do I know her?" I ask.
He chuckles. "You don't resemble this person just a little bit, you would know if you knew her."
"What's her name?" I ask.
"Fey Dawnwillow. She's a very old vampire." He explains.
"Yes, she is." A voice behind me says. My voice. Drew's eyes widen and I slowly turn around. An exact replica of me stands ten feet away.
"Fey." Drew mutters.
"Hello Drew." She smiles, a deadly smile, and turns to me. "Hello Chastity."
"What are you doing here?" Drew asks, taking all of the words out of my mouth. I would talk, but I'm too frozen with shock.
Fey gives a half smile to Drew. "Warning Chastity, what else would I be doing?"
"Mass murdering the whole town." Drew replies with a hint of annoyance in his voice.
"You know me so well, don't you Drew?" She says sarcastically.
"Look, maybe you should just leave Fey." Drew says.
She gets a devilish look on her face. "Fine. Just one more thing," she turns towards me. "If I were you, I would stay away from Klaus." She starts to leave, then turns back around. "And Damon." She smirks and walks away.
