This is the prequel for 'What's Hidden Underneath'. This story starts off the same night where 'New Girl in Mystic Falls' ends.
~ 'What's Hidden Underneath' follows Chelsea, who is a vampire/witch hybrid during the events of season three. It also includes a Damon/Chelsea/Klaus triangle.
~ I never wrote what happens for a majority of season 1 and season 2 for Chelsea. The readers of 'What's Hidden Underneath' don't know what happened between the events from when Damon killed Chelsea on her porch to her saving Damon's live by making a deal with Klaus.
~ I hope you will read 'What's Hidden Underneath' and 'New Girl in Mystic Falls'after reading this chapter.

ENJOY!


Chelsea's POV

I gasped for breath as I jerked up. My mom was sitting by my legs, looking worried and relieved.
"My head." I complained as I brought my hand up to it. "What happened?"
"Damon came over." Anna said to me. "I gave you some of my blood, because you were worried he was going to try something and then he killed you." It took me a minute to processes the information.
"Wait a minute." I said. "I'm in transition?" I looked between Anna and my mom. My mom gave me a nod with a worried look. "It's too early." I looked between them. "I didn't even get to have children yet." I started crying. Anna and my mom just hugged me. We hugged for what seemed like hours. They slowly pulled away from me. I saw my mom look at Anna.
"Will you stop her if she gets too crazy?" My mom asked Anna. It took me a minute to realize what she meant.
"No." My mom turned her head towards me. "Not from you." I took a deep breath. "I can't."
"It's better than some random person on the street." Anna said to me.
"I trust you Chelsea." My mom smiled at me. "You are my daughter and I love you no matter what you are." I couldn't help but smile at her. She rolled up her sleeve and held her wrist to me. "Here." I hesitantly looked at it.
"Please Chelsea." Anna said. "I don't want you to die." I took a deep breath and scooted so my mom's wrist was closer to me. Her veins were showing, almost tempting me. I know that if I didn't I would die, even though technically I was already dead.
"Please." My mom quietly said in a whisper. I gently held my mom's wrist before biting into it. The blood flowed down my throat. It was the first time I tasted human blood, then again it's the first time I was a vampire. The blood was sooo good. I craved it and kept drinking it, forgetting that it was my mom that I was feeding on.
"Chelsea." I could hear Anna say. "That's enough." I could feel her hands on my shoulders starting to pull me away. I continued to suck the blood because it was the best thing I ever tasted.
"Chelsea off." My mom said as Anna finally pulled me away from my mom's wrist. For a moment I almost went for more before I realized that it was my mom. I took a deep breath before calming down. My whole world is going to change, again.
"Let me heal that." Anna said to my mom before biting into her wrist. She put it up to my mom's mouth and she drank the blood, healing the bite marks.
"Thank you." She said to Anna before looking at me with a slightly worried look. "Chelsea, go to your room and get some sleep. You're going to need it." I gave my mom a slight nod before standing up from the bench. I walked to the side door, ready to go it. 'Would I be able to go in?' I thought before my foot went into the house.

I went straight to the bathroom and looked at my reflection. My mom's blood was still around my lips. I felt disgusted that it was my mom's blood on my mouth, her blood that allowed me to complete the transition. I quickly grabbed a rag, wet it, and wiped the blood off of my face, not wanting to see it anymore. I tossed the rag onto the counter before going into my room. The curtains were open, but I closed them. This way, when the sun rose, I wouldn't burn.

I knew that my mom would be getting me something so I could walk in the sun. I plopped down on my bed and tried to sleep.

All I could think about was that Damon killed me and he thinks I'm actually dead. He is going to be in for a surprise when he finds out that I'm still up and about. Obviously since he and Stefan are both vampires and Stefan clearly doesn't want Damon here... I should pay him a visit. He probably wants Damon out of town just as much as I want to. I made a mental note to visit Stefan at the boarding house tomorrow and tell him what Damon did. Sleep slowly started coming to me so I closed my eyes and tried to imagine what my eternity could be like.


I slowly started to open my eyes. Everything that happened the night before started to flash in my head. I got some blood from Anna just on the safe side, because Damon came over. We talked kissed, and...I let out a gasp. Damon killed me. My body shot up, in slight shock. I remembered feeding on my mom and completing my transition. I was a vampire. I slowly got out of my bed and stepped towards the hall. My senses were heightened. I could hear my mom and dad's heartbeats. For a minute, I stopped and took a deep breath. I turned and went to the bathroom, to the room Anna was staying in.
"Anna?" I asked quietly. I peaked my head in and saw that she was laying on the bed. The curtains were open, so I couldn't walk in without burning. "Anna?" I asked a little louder. She didn't move, but I knew she was alive, as much as you could be for a vampire. I took a deep breath and focused on the curtains. They slowly started to close, blocking the sun's rays. When they were closed I started to walk into the room, towards the bed. "Anna." I said before sitting down on the edge of the bed. She started to open her eyes.
"Chelsea." She said tiredly. "Chelsea." She said, shooting up into a sitting position. "How are you not..."
"Burning?" I finished for her. "I used my magic to close the curtains." She looked at the curtains and then looked back to me.
"You were able to keep your magic?"
"Yeah. Would I not be able to?"
"I don't know. I never heard of a witch getting turned."
"I guess I'm the first." I gave her a smile.
"How are you feeling?" Anna asked as looked at me.
"A little tired, I have a bit of headache, but I'm really thirsty."
"That's normal. Let's go downstairs." I nodded my head before standing up from the bed.

Anna and I walked downstairs. All the curtains downstairs were closed, which made me relieved. I stood on the middle of the stairs as Anna continued to walk down. The thought of blood entered my head and I didn't want to attack my mom or dad. Anna turned around and stepped up to me.
"Hey." She said quietly. "You are going to be okay." I took a deep breath and gave her a small nod before walking down the rest of the stairs.

My mom was making a pot of coffee while my dad sat at the kitchen table, reading the paper.
"Morning." I said to them. My mom turned around with a cup in her hand.
"Good morning Chelsea." She said with a small smile. I could tell there was sadness in her eyes. "You're going to be late for school." I let out a small chuckle.
"There is no school today, it's Saturday and plus I can't even leave the house without burning." My mom's lips formed a big smile on her face. "What are you not telling me?" She set the cup on the kitchen table before putting her hand in her pocket.
"While you were sleeping I went out and got you something." She took out her hand and pulled out a lapis lazuli ring. "I spellled it for you this morning." My mom handed me the ring and I put it on right away.
"Thank you mom." I hugged her. Her pulse started to call me, trying to lure me into taking a bite. I took a deep breath and nervously pushed away from her. She looked at me with concern on her face. "Hey, mom?"
"Yeah?"
"Is it okay if I stop over at a friend's house? He knows about the supernatural."
"As long as you don't run into Damon."
"Thanks." I said before turning around towards the front door.
"Don't you want any blood?" Anna asked. I turned to face her.
"I'll get some later." I said before walking out of the house.

Once I was outside, I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. The sun shined on me, making my cold skin feel slightly warm. I walked around the house, into the woods where I could try running where no one could see me. I started to run and imagined myself running faster. Before I knew it, I was in front of the boarding house.

I stood, trying to calm myself. I was here to talk to Stefan, but I knew Damon would be surprised to see me. The look on his face would be priceless.

I took a deep breath before ringing the doorbell. I stood for five minutes before someone answered the door.

"Hello, Damon." I couldn't help but say with a smirk.
"How are you here?" Damon asked. I could tell he was nervous and surprised. "I killed you."
"You did, but I'm here."
"How?"
"Oh, please. You know better than anyone." Damon's eyes went wide after realizing. "Relax, I'm just here to talk to Stefan." I took a small step up to the door. "However, I'm going to need an invitation from your 'uncle'," I made quotation marks with my fingers in the air ", Zach in order to get in."
"What makes you think you'll be invited in?" I rolled my eyes.
"I won't kill you if I am."
"I'm older and that means stronger. Don't think you can take me."
"Oh, yeah?" I said with an evil smile before focusing on Damon's mind. Pain started to show on his face and his hand went to his head. "Did you learn nothing from last night?" I said to Damon before Stefan showed up with confusion on his face.
"What's going on?" I stopped focusing on Damon, the pain leaving him.
"Ask your brother. After all, it's his fault."
"What did he do?" Stefan asked.
"She's a vampire." Damon said.
"Yeah, no thanks to you." I shot a glance at Damon. "I just want to talk to you Stefan." I said politely to him. "I just need to be invited in." Stefan looked at me for a minute.
"Okay. Just wait here." He said before disappearing.
"Just to be clear, I don't like you." I said to Damon.
"Are you sure? Did the kisses before make you feel anything?" He asked with a cocky smile.
"Oh, please. Could you be any more cocky? Besides if I did feel anything it was destroyed when you killed me." He looked at me curiously before walking towards the basement.

I stood and waited as Stefan returned with his uncle.
"Zach, this is Chelsea." Stefan said. I gave him a small smile. "She wants to talk to me but can't come in."
"I won't do anything bad, I promise. Well, except at Damon." I honestly said to him.
"What did he do to you?" Zach asked me.
"He killed me, but I had vamp blood in my system and here I am." Zach took a deep breath and looked at me.
"You can come in," I gave him a small smile before moving my foot towards the door ", but," I stopped ", if you do anything bad I will..."
"I'll watch her." Stefan said, interrupting him.
"Okay." Zach said to Stefan. "Come in Chelsea." I gave him a nod before taking a step into the house.
"Thank you." I said to Zach before turning to Stefan.
"Follow me." I gave him a nod and followed him up the stairs.


~ There are two reasons why I'm writing this story. One is because I wanted to continue to write for Chelsea before season 4... and because the readers for 'What's Hidden Underneath' wanted to read this.
~ If you are confused on some of the things in this chapter 'New Girl in Mystic Falls' should clear them up.
~ I want to write what happened to Chelsea, starting from 1.04 (Family Ties) to 2.22 (As I lay Dying).
~ I hope that you review letting me know what you think and if you want to know the rest of what happens to Chelsea.

R&R 'till the next update
