~ I was debating rather or not to post this. This chapter was written about a week ago and right now I'm working on the third chapter.
~ This story is a bit different from others that I've done. You'll find out by the second chapter.
~ I had this idea for a while. I ended up writing it when I had a writer's block for another story.
She was on the floor of the woods. The moonlight shined on her and a cool breeze blew. Her eyes started to slowly open. 'Where am I?' She thought as she looked around at her surroundings. She could hear the sound of nocturnal animals running over branches and leaves on the ground. 'I'm hungry. Why am I hungry?' She thought as she slowly stood up from the ground. Her head snapped to the side and she started running towards something, but she didn't know why. A squirrel, a poor defenseless squirrel became victim to her hunger. All of its blood was sucked out of it. She didn't know why she did it, only that she needed to.
She turned her head to see a man, looking at her with interest.
"Who are you?" She asked.
"You know who I am." he said.
"I do?" She asked in confusion. There was nothing about him that she could remember, but she couldn't remember anything.
"Do you remember?" He asked. She shook her head.
"I don't remember anything." She told him, not knowing if she could trust him or not, but she needed to know.
"Come with me." He said as he held out his hand. She looked at him with slight worry and confusion on her face. "Don't worry I won't bite, you." He said with a smirk before she slowly took his hand. They started to walk together, out of the woods.
~12 hours earlier~
"Stefan." She said when she giggled as he picked her up. "Stop it." She said with a smile as he kissed her neck. Stefan brought her to his bed and set her down on it. They looked at each other with smiles on their faces. She went closer to him and kissed him. Stefan moved his lips and started kissing her neck again. "Stefan." She said with a smile. "It's almost three." He looked at her.
"We still have time." He smiled before kissing her again.
"I promised Caroline and Bonnie that I'd be there before three."
"Just five more minutes." He said between kisses on her neck.
"It will take me that long just to get there." Stefan looked at her face. "We can just finish this later." She said with a smile.
"Why wait?" Stefan asked her with a smile.
"Stefan." She tried to say seriously. "I have to go." She tried to push him off to the side. He laid next to her with a smile on his face.
"Don't forget to meet us at the Grill later." He nodded his head as she walked to his door.
"Elena." She turned to face him. "I love you." He said with a smile. She smiled as well.
"I love you to." Elena turned around and walked out of his room.
~End of Flashback~
They walked up to the door. The door opened to reveal an African American woman.
"Hello Klaus." She said before turning the woman. "Why is she here?"
"I found her in the woods. She will need a place to stay to hide from the sun. You need to invite her in Greta." Greta nodded her head.
"Come in." Klaus showed her into the house.
"Greta, please get a blood bag for our guest." Greta nodded at Klaus's request.
"Come this way love." He said before showing the other girl up the stairs.
Greta walked up the stairs with the blood bag in her hand for Klaus' guest.
"Thank you Greta." He said before taking the blood bag from her. "Give us some privacy, will you love?" Greta nodded her head before leaving the room.
Klaus turned to the bed. She was sitting with her legs crossed, looking at Klaus. The curtains were closed, not letting any moonlight in. Come to the sunrise, it will hide the sun's rays.
"What's happening to me?" She asked as Klaus sat on the bed.
"You're becoming a vampire Elena."
"My name's Elena?" She asked and he nodded his head. "You said that I'm turning into a vampire?" Klaus gave a nod as he handed her the blood bag.
"You will need to drink from this. It's what your body is craving."
"What's in the bag will keep your body satisfied until I can get you a suitable meal." Elena looked at the blood bag with slight confusion, not knowing what to do with it. "Just bite into it." She looked up to Klaus before biting into the bag. The blood flowed down her throat as she hastily forced it down her throat, just knowing she needed it. Elena handed the bag to Klaus.
"Can I have more?" She asked.
"Later." A quick flash of disappointment flashed in Elena's eyes. "You need to rest. You've been through quite an ordeal."
"What happened to me?"
"We'll figure that out later." Klaus said with a slight smile. "For now, just go to sleep." He stood up. "And when you wake up, don't open the curtains."
"I'll tell you later." He said before leaving the confused Elena alone. She looked around at the room that she was in before laying on the bed to trying to go to sleep.
They all sat in Elena's bedroom. Caroline sat on Elena's bed while Bonnie sat on Elena's window bench.
"I don't know why you want to have a birthday party for Damon." Caroline said to Elena. She didn't belief that Elena would do something like this for him.
"I told you Caroline. I think someone should do something nice for him." She said as she between the two items laying in front of her.
"Just go with the darker one." Caroline said to Elena. "It will look better." Elena slightly smiled before picking up the dark blue watch. "Why does he even need one?"
"He doesn't," Elena looked at Caroline ", but he already has everything. I just wanted to get him something simple." Elena put it in the box she had put to the side for it.
"You know," Caroline started ", Damon doesn't have everything." She smiled at Elena.
"Caroline." Bonnie said, turning her head towards them.
"What?" Caroline asked as she turned her head towards Bonnie. "It's true." She looked back at Elena, who was slightly blushing.
"The fact that you couldn't choose what to get him 'till the day of the party," Caroline and Elena looked at each other ", that says something right there." Elena stayed silent.
"You know what?" Bonnie asked as she stood up from the bench. "If you're just going to keep talking about Damon, I'm just gonna go."
"You're still going to be at the Grill later, right?" Elena asked.
"Only because you asked." Bonnie said with a smile before leaving Elena's room. Caroline looked at Elena.
"So, have you decided what you're going to wear?" She asked Elena with a smile on her face.
~End of Flashback~
Elena slowly opened her eyes and saw that she was in the room that Klaus had brought her into. She slowly sat up and looked around. The sun's rays came into the room, but only in the corner farthest from her, the curtains blocked the rays from touching her. She didn't know why this was, but she was sure that he would tell her.
Klaus walked up to the doorway and saw that Elena was looking at him.
"How are you feeling?" He asked.
"Sore, hungry, tired." Klaus started walking into the room.
"There is a person downstairs that I brought here after you went to sleep."
"Not the same person that was here before?" Elena asked. Klaus slightly shook his head.
"No. Greta had to go out and get something. But don't worry, she should be here in a couple of hours." Klaus put out his hand to Elena. "Shall we?" He asked. Elena slowly got out of the bed, stood up, grabbed his hand, and walked out of the room.
There was a blonde woman, standing, looking at the art on the walls.
"She is here for you." Klaus said to Elena.
"Who is she?" Elena asked Klaus.
"That doesn't matter." Klaus stepped away from Elena and towards the girl. "It's why she's here that matters." Klaus put his hand on the girl's back and gently pushed her towards Elena. The girl's scent flowed up Elena's nose. She took a step back. "Remember what I said you're turning into?"
"A vampire." Elena said after she gave a slight nod.
"A vampire," Klaus started as he brushed some hair off the girl's neck ", needs to drink human blood until they are done turning." Elena cautiously stepped closer to the girl. "If you don't you'll die." Klaus said to her. Elena stepped closer to the girl, looking at her neck. "Just bite and suck sweetheart." Klaus stepped back as Elena came within arm's length. He watched her curiously as she brushed her hand against the neck. Elena looked at the neck, took a deep breath, and bit into it. Klaus watched as interest. As far as he knew, Elena didn't have any memories about herself. He could use this to his advantage.
Elena looked around the Grill and saw Damon at the bar. She rolled her eyes before walking over to him.
"Damon." She said as she walked up behind him.
"Elena." He said looking at her with a smile on his face.
"It's your birthday. You should do something besides drink."
"I'll have more birthdays." He said as he took a drink from his glass.
"You know you only turn 171 years old once." She said with a slight smirk. Elena looked behind them, making sure that Caroline and Bonnie were busy. "Come on." She said as she turned her head back to Damon. "I want to give you something." Elena nodded her head towards the door.
"What is it?"
"It's a secret." Elena whispered before pleading with her eyes. Damon finished his glass and let Elena lead him out the Grill.
Elena brought Damon into the woods, away from anyone that could hear them.
"If you wanted to make out in the woods Elena, all you had to do was ask." Damon said with a smirk. Elena rolled her eyes and turned around to Damon.
"Damon," She started before taking a deep breath ", I've been doing some thinking and, well, the watch isn't your only gift from me." A smirk came across his face. "I didn't tell anyone else this because they would say it's insane and stupid," I looked into Damon's eyes ", I want you to have some of my blood." Damon's eyes went wide.
"What?" He was shocked. Elena usually wasn't the one to offer it to him, except to Stefan. Elena took a step closer to Damon.
"My real birthday present to you," She held out her hand to him ", is my blood. That is, if you want some."
"What makes you think I want your blood?" She gave him a 'are you kidding?' look.
"If you don't want it…" She started to pull away her hand. He gently grabbed it.
"Are you kidding? Of course I do, but why would you offer?"
"Because I wanted to give you something unique, something that nobody else could give you." Damon slightly smiled. "You just can't tell anyone about this." She said with a small smile. He stepped closer to her, still holding her hand.
"It'll be our little secret." He said with a smirk. "Are you sure?" Elena nodded her head before Damon bit into her hand.
She let out a gasp as he sucked out some of her blood. He lifted his head, his fangs went back in, and he looked at Elena. She gave him a quick, small smile before looking at her hand.
"You know," Damon started. Elena looked at him ", They are going to ask how you go that." He took a step closer to her.
"I know." Elena said quietly to Damon.
"Elena," He said as he looked at her. "If you don't want them to ask…"
"No, no, no, no" She said as she slightly shook her head.
"Come on Elena. What's the harm?" Damon bit into his wrist and put it in front of Elena. "You don't want Stefan to know about this, do you?" Elena took a deep breath as she looked at his wrist.
"Okay." She said in a quiet whisper. He stepped up to her, putting his wrist against her mouth. She felt his blood go down his throat and heal her hand. Elena pulled away and wiped the blood from her mouth.
"Elena," He said quietly, looking into her eyes ", you're going to hate me." There was sadness in his eyes as he said this.
"What do you mean?" Damon opened his mouth, but then closed it. There was only one way to make sure she wouldn't be used for the rest of her life, but he knew what happened the last time he tried it.
"I love you." He finally said. "Don't you forget that." He put both of his hands on her head, over her hair. She looked at him with confusion before one swift motion took her life. Her body fell to the ground.
~End of Flashback~
Elena looked at the body that was now on the floor. There was great feeling of power flowing through her. Klaus was looking at her with interest.
~ The main reason I posted this is to see if your reviews could give me inspiration for the third chapter. I have a little writers block right now.
~ The flashbacks are just the events that led up to Elena on the ground in the woods. She doesn't remember anything. Elena won't know anything, except for whatever Klaus tells her.
~ When I post the next chapter all depends on the number of reviews and if I can get anything done on the third chapter. I want to try to stay a chapter ahead of what I post, only so I try not to go a long time without updating.
R&R 'till the next update
