"Have you ever felt alone? I have. I do everyday." I smiled absentmindedly at the kid, pressed against the wall. "Before my parents died I had lots of friends. I was loved. Then they left. And now no one knows I exist." the knife was pressed to their throat, they whimpered in my grasp. "I really don't like being ignored. It makes me want to hurt people. I want to hurt you right now."
"Please don't." the girl cried. "I'm begging you."
I knew what would happen if I did. She would slowly die in my arms. And my anger would disappear. Then I would be in trouble, and I didn't want that. But if I didn't she would run and tell. Then I would get in trouble, and like I said. I didn't want that.
"I wont say anything. Please. Just let me go."
I pressed the knife harder against her skin. "If you tell anyone I will find you. And kill you." I said before letting her drop to the ground and walking off. Leaving her panting on the floor, crying.
"Elena get up for school!" aunt Jenna called.
"Yep." I yelled back.
I dragged myself out of bed and into the shower. I let the water run down my body, getting rid of the sad, lonely feeling lingering from the death of my parents. Today was a new day. And I was going to start fresh. I was ready to go to school and see everyone. It was the first day back, and I wanted it to be a good start to school.
I got out of the shower and walked to my wardrobe. I grabbed a white shirt, pink jacket and whit skirt. I threw them on and brushed my hair. My golden blonde hair sat perfectly on my shoulders. I slipped on my white ballet flats and walked down to breakfast.
Jeremy sat at the table drinking coffee. Margaret sat on the floor next to the back door, she was looking at the butterflies dance around the flowers. And aunt Jenna made breakfast, and lunches in the kitchen.
"No lunch for me thanks." I told her, getting coffee. "And no breakfast. Coffee will do."
"Are you sure?"
"Positive." I smiled at her.
"Same here." Jeremy, my fifteen year old brother asked, spoke. "And Kaitlyn wont want anything either."
"How do you know? She might want something." aunt Jenna told him.
"Yeah um, she'll get up and leave. She wont stay for food."
It was true. My twin was never around anymore. She seemed to only come home for money or sleep. Sometimes I wondered if she even came home for that.
"'Lena are you going to school today?" Margaret, my four year old sister, asked.
"Yep." I answered her.
"When are you getting back?"
"When schools finished."
"Can we play Barbie after?"
"No I'll have homework. Maybe later though." I smiled.
"Yay." she yelled and then went back to looking out side.
I walked over to the table and sat down. Just as I did something caught my eye.
"Kaitlyn why don't you come in for breakfast?" I called.
"Get up." Damon kicked me as I slept.
I sat up immediately. "What the hell are you doing here?"
He smirked. "Do you seriously think I would miss your first day of school? What kind of brother would I be if I did that?"
"Damon, how did you know I was here?" I asked, suspicion growing.
His smirk grew. "I just know these things. Plus anyway it has been awhile since I've given Mystic Falls a visit."
"Don't even think about it."
"Don't think about what?" he asked, playing dumb.
"Whatever it is you're thinking of doing. don't. I wont let you destroy this town. It's been through enough."
Then he suddenly started to laugh. "You," he pointed at me, "think you can stop me. Oh my, that is hilarious. You're going to give me a heart attack making me laugh this hard."
I was about to say something to him, but before I could he had me pinned to the wall. His laughter had stopped. And a straight expression was pinned on his face. "I will do what I want, when I want. Where and when I want to do it. So don't even think about stopping me. For your safety."
Before I could spit in his face, or say something back to him, he was gone.
I dragged myself out of bed and into the shower. I stood there letting the water wash away last night. I had snuck out to go to a party. Where I had gotten sightly stoned. So I was washing away the groggy feeling, and the incident that had happened with the girl.
I was going to let it go, and bury it far into the back of my mind.
When I felt a little better I got out of the shower and walked to my closet. I grabbed black jeans, black and navy blue stripped shirt, and a black hoddie. I quickly brushed my hair, and then pulled my hood over it. I slipped my black converse on and grabbed my school bag.
As I walked past the mirror I saw my pale, clay like face. You look disgusting. I heard a voice in my mind say.
"Fuck you." I said back, and then walked downstairs.
I was about to open the door, but her voice stopped me.
"Kaitlyn why don't you come in for breakfast?" Elena called.
I could hear the cockiness in her voice. She knew I was going to get questioned about last night.
"Oh Kaitlyn, yes. Come in and have some breakfast." aunt Jenna smiled.
"I'm not hungry." I replied.
"And I don't care. Get in here now." she said, still smiling.
"Whatever." I sighed.
I walked into the dinning room and sat at the table opposite Elena.
I looked at her and wondered why we were twins. We were nothing alike. So yeah we had the same physical appearances. But everything else was different. She was all pretty in pink, and I was dark quiet one. She was popular, I was a loner. She was an A grade student, I was a stoner. She dated boys, and whenever boys paid attention to me I played with them.
The only thing we had in common besides family stuff, was that we were both virgins, and we both knew that if we needed to talk to anyone the first person you went to was your twin.
"So Kaitlyn. Do you mind telling me why you were out late last night?" aunt Jenna asked.
"Yeah." I replied.
"Yeah, you're going to tell me."
"No. I said 'yeah', meaning yeah I mind telling you. It's my business not your's. Now if you don't mind, I've gotta get to school." I stood up and walked out, ignoring them calling me back.
"So you ready for your first day at school?" I asked Stefan like he was a child.
"Damon you do realise I've been to more schools than you can imagine. I've probably been to more schools than you've been to bars." he told me.
"Yes but I've definitely had sex with more women, than the amount of schools you've been to." I said, acting like I was a wise man.
"As much as that's a disgusting thought. It's also a fact. You've done a lot of women."
"Females." I corrected.
"What's the difference?"
"Some of the females I've done, were not mature enough to be woman. Believe me. And that makes it more fun." I smirked.
"Oh, that's gross."
I chuckled. "Hey you were the one who asked."
It was strange driving Stefan to school. I if I hadn't dragged him into my car then we wouldn't be talking right now. We hadn't spoken for years. And it seemed that all the bad stuff we had done, was in the past… for now.
I parked the car at the back of the parking lot at the school. All the students were gathered in small groups, greeting each other and talking about their holiday. I opened my door and the smell of their blood overwhelmed me.
"Mm, they do smell good." I said to myself.
"Damon, don't do anything stupid." Stefan said, getting out of the car.
I slid out of the car and closed the door with a thump. "Trust me Stefan. I wont do anything… yet." I grinned.
He sighed and shook his head.
My grin widened. And as I turned I saw many of the student, if not all of them, staring at us. "We better sign you in." I said.
"All ready done. Yesterday I did it myself."
"Did you have to you compulsion?" I asked, out of nowhere. He hesitated, and I knew the answer. "Well maybe it's a sign saying you shouldn't be at school. You should hit the roads with me. Like we used to."
"When I was a killer? When I didn't give a second thought to killing any human I saw, smelt or heard? When we were real brothers?"
It was my time to hesitate. But then I smiled. "Exactly. You were way more fun then."
"When are you going to grow up, Damon?" he shook his head.
I shrugged. "I'm a vampire. We don't grow up."
I turned to walk into the crowd, Stefan following. That's when we saw them. They walked in perfect sync, side by side. And they took our breathe away.
So what do you think? Continue? Stop?
Basically I'm going to continue anyway, so I don't know why I asked :P
I hope you enjoyed, and please review. Love you all:):)
