A/N: Hello Everyone :) This is my first Vampire Diaries fan fiction. This is a pretty long first chapter, about 2100 words. It's more or less and introduction chapter, to start understanding the main topic of this story. A little warning, they might be some grammar mistakes. I'm fluent in English and French but sometimes my grammar ends up weird.
This story takes place after episode seven from the second season, when Katherine gets thrown into the tomb.
The pairing for now (It may change.) will be: Katherine & Stefan and Elena and Damon. I might hint some Stefan and Caroline but it all depends. If you have any other idea feel free to let me know.
Chapter One: The Tomb
Being dead for over five centuries, she never thought she would end up stuck in a tomb. During the past few years, her deeds hadn't been truly nice. She had killed and slaughter many villages, only for her own entertainment. No one truly understood her and it killed her inside. She was alone.
Katherine shook her head, why was she thinking about all this. It made no sense and she didn't want any part of it in her head. Drifting back into reality she looked at the tall man in front of her and forced a smile.
"What do you want Stefan?" She asked him as she forced herself to stand. Her body was running on barely any blood, only enough to keep her conscious.
"I want to know why you came back." She laughed.
"I told you already, I came back for you." Hadn't he understood the first time she told him?
"Katherine." He snapped, saying her name with venom. "What do you want with Elena?" She rolled her eyes.
"Nothing." Katherine had enough of this conversation and she turned away. "I'm tired and not in the mood to talk about useless things Stefan."
"Elena isn't useless."
A sigh escaped her lips; she walked further into the tomb and let her body drop to the floor. Her limbs had become numb, barely able to hold any weight. If she couldn't get any blood soon, her body would start shutting down.
Her name echoed through the tomb walls. "Stefan, I'm done talking to you." She replied and closed her eyes. However, he kept calling her name.
Using her remaining strength she stood up and walked towards the entrance. As she arrived, Stefan was nowhere to be seen. Who had been calling her?
"It's almost time, my dear Katherine."
Her eyes than picked up a box laying in front of the tomb. It was the size of a shoebox, but for some odd reason it was decorated with pink and sparkles. Katherine raised her eyebrow and limped closer to the box. Picking up a twig, she tried to maneuver a way to bring the box towards the tomb. After a few tries she was successful and the box was in a reachable distance. She gasped, as she read the top of the box.
Happy Birthday Katerina,
Lots of love, your older brother
"It's useless, she isn't telling us anything!" Damon ran his fingers through his dark hair. "We might as well kill her, while we can."
"We need to know more if we want to protect her." Stefan replied, putting his book down and staring at his older brother.
"Don't you think I know that? Katherine is playing with us, she just wants us to get her out of the tomb." Damon was furious, why was everything so complicated these days?
"Who's fault is it that she came back all the way to Mystic Falls? You just had to provoke her with all the tomb Vampires!" Stefan snapped back at Damon.
"Are you blaming me?" Damon slammed his drink on the desk.
"What if I am? It wouldn't be the first time Elena gets in danger because of your actions Damon." Stefan spoke with full anger, every word digging into Damons chest.
"Guys stop arguing." Caroline spoke up, sometimes she felt like she was forgotten in all this mess. Both brothers gave her a glare, she sighed. "Look, right now Elena is safe. For sure we would all like to know Katherine's true evil master plan but lets not put ourselves in more danger."
"Right." Damon said, for once he could say that blondie spoke with intelligence.
"So what should we do now?" Stefan asked, forgetting about the argument with Damon.
"Well I don't know about you guys, but I'm taking Elena out shopping. I definitely will not sit and wait for one of you two to think of something." Caroline smiled and grabbed her purse. Damon ran up to her and grabbed her hand. "What?" She asked.
"Make sure she's safe." The blonde rolled her eyes and smiled at the older Salvatore.
"She's going shopping with her Vampire best friend, how safe can she be?" Stefan walked up to them and gave Caroline an envelope. "Could you give that to Elena?"
"Yeah, sure." She replied putting the envelope in her purse, not asking what was within.
"Thanks Caroline." Stefan smiled at her and walked back towards the couch and continued to read his book.
"If anything happens, call us Caroline." Damon eyed her and she just nodded in agreement.
Caroline sped outside and sat inside her car. "Those Salvatore brothers are going to be the death of me, oh wait. I'm already dead." She sighed.
Katherine didn't know what to think, was her brother really in Mystic Falls? If he was indeed, things were about to go sour.
Many thoughts roamed through her head, should she open the box? What if he had filled it with vervain? With all her courage, she started to untangle the pink ribbons. A small smile formed on her lips, he still remembered how much she hated the color pink yet he still wrapped everything in it. Sometimes things don't end up changing over the years, in her case centuries.
She stared at the box and carefully opening it.
"Oh… my… god…" She barely was able to talk but her eyes were not able to leave what was contained inside the box. Wrapped inside was an antique gold locket, with names engraved on it. Katherine was stunned as her fragile hands touched it. She didn't know how it was possible for it to still be in good shape. My god, it was even older than Katherine herself.
She then noticed a parchment in the box and opened it.
Over the centuries, I have not kept contact with you but for many reasons. You probably believe that I had passed away with the remaining of our family centuries ago but you are wrong. I am well alive or somewhat alive. But that is a story for another time dear sister. I came back for you and to finally awaken our other sister.
In a few days time you shall be free, but promise to keep this a secret or else the plan will fail.
Lots of love,
Katherine was speechless but certain thoughts could not leave her head. She had a sister?
"Caroline, how is shopping going to help us?" Elena asked as she pushing away her brown locks behind her ears.
"Are you even hearing yourself?" The blonde asked, as she sipped on her diet cola. "Shopping is a women's way to deal with stress."
"I'm seventeen Caroline, not fifty." Elena replied and smiled.
"Well, I'll be seventeen forever. So this is my way of dealing with stress. Just suck it up." Caroline laughed and stood up from her seat. "Come on Elena, I've got Damon's credit card!"
Elena eyes snapped open, "What? We can't go shopping with his credit card!"
"And why not?" Caroline laughed and grabbed her purse.
"Because, it isn't our money." The brunette replied back and crossed her arms.
"Is this because you're still mad at him?" Elena sighed; in reality she wasn't thrilled with Damon these days. She tried to forgive him for killing her brother, even though he didn't really die. But, it still bothered the hell out of her.
"I may not be happy about his choices but this has nothing to do with his credit card."
"If you say so Elena." Caroline grabbed her arm and walked towards the stores. A few steps away she let go of her arm and walked in alone, waiting for Elena's decision.
"Caroline… your just unbelievable." Elena gave in and walked into the store. She was suddenly stopped abruptly with her body came into contact with a hard chest. Looking up, she was baffled.
"I'm so sorry." She said quickly, the man just smiled at her. Why did she feel like she knew him?
"It isn't a problem." He replied with a thick European accent. His eyes were locked onto hers.
"I should go now." She replied, attempting to move out of the way.
"I might think otherwise, Elena." She raised her eyebrow, how did he know her name?
"How do you know who I am?" She asked, her eyes searching for Caroline but she was nowhere to be seen.
"I know much more than just your name."
She swallowed hard and felt her heart beating faster. "I… need to go back to my friend now." Trying to move aside, he stopped her once again.
"Like I said Elena, I don't think so." Suddenly she felt his strong arms around her, he had grabbed her by the waist now carrying her in a bridal style. Within moments he sped away.
Elena felt like her head was about to burst. She tried to avoid eye contact but her eyes couldn't resist.
"Sleep." He ordered and Elena soon fell asleep.
"You what?" Damon yelled across the phone, Caroline sighed.
"She vanished. I don't know what to say, I don't remember anything." She replied, rubbing her temples. She had the worst headache, ever.
"How can you not remember Blondie?"
"I was probably compelled, I don't know. What do you want me to say?" She snapped back at him, why was he being such a jerk. It wasn't like she fed Elena to the wolves.
"I ask you to do one thing… and you can't even do it." With that he hanged up. She sighed once again. Caroline went through her contacts and dialed.
"Bonnie. It's Caroline, I need your help it's about Elena."
Katherine spent the last hours trying to open the locket but it seemed to be locked tight. Magic was keeping it from being opened, and it made her wonder why. She suddenly felt a rush of wind, her eyes opened widely when she saw someone standing at the entrance of the tomb.
"Alexander…" She spoke softly her voice barely able to form words.
Alexander smiled at her. He was tall roughly six feet, and had short dark brown hair. They shared a strong resemblance except he had green eyes.
"Sister." He replied and threw a container inside the tomb. She grabbed it and opened it. Inside it carried a blood bag, her face suddenly changed her eyes becoming red. Katherine drank all the blood within a minute, her body adjusting to the amount of fluids running down her veins.
"Thank you." She said to him, throwing back the small container.
"No need to thank me, just doing anything I can for our family." He walked closer to the tomb and sat near the entrance.
"Why are you here?"
"For many different reasons, little sister. Mostly to save you from this awful looking tomb." She laughed and leaned her head against the tomb wall. "But, I came back to reassemble our family."
She eyed him with curiosity. "What family? They all died centuries ago. Surely you know that much."
"I'm still alive aren't I?"
Katherine didn't know what else to say.
"So you don't overkill your brain with questions, I'll just keep talking." She glared at him in annoyance. "The night they came to kill us. I managed to escape. I was barely alive but someone found me and gave me blood. The following night, I was shot dead by our neighbor. I was awoken to the life of the undead shortly after, but I fled."
"How come I never saw you?" She asked him.
"For many reasons, I didn't want you to know I was still alive. I knew the problem you had with Niklaus and his family. I didn't want to be part of it. I was a coward, little sister. I left you, alone."
The words rang through her head, was he telling her the truth?
"But that was the past and now I will change things. Starting with awakening our sister."
"Wait. What sister, I don't recall ever having a sister Alexander." Katherine asked, she then noticed a body laying behind him.
"There is a lot of things you do not know Katherine, and things you were made to forget."
"Open the locket, I gave you." He pointed to the locket lying on her thigh.
"It locked, I can't open it."
"Try again, little sister."
"Stop calling me little sister, it's starting to annoy me." Katherine snapped at him, attempting to open the locket once again.
"How?" Was the only word she was able to say. Inside the locket was a picture of her and… Elena? "This isn't possible, you're lying. I don't have a sister." Katherine tossed the locket at him and stood up. A terrible pain hit head, causing her to grab her head. Her knees gave in and she fell to the cement.
"Like I said, something's you were made to forget. Like the existence of your twin, Elena." Alexander said, looking at his other sister who was lying unconscious next to him.
A/N: I hope the first chapter was not too confusing. The idea of a long lost twin came to me when I watched this documentary and I thought why not make a fan fiction about it. As of now, Alexander will be the only new main character in this story. Some minor characters may come later. I'll be putting a reference picture of Alexander on my profile sometime this week. I hope you all enjoyed and please REVIEW! More reviews = faster chapters! :)
Till Next time!
