So I should be totally studying for my midterms right now but I just couldn't seem to focus. I decided to write the first thing that came to my mind and this was it. I don't have a clue where this is going but if you guys really like it and review it I'll keep it. Also for the readers of Rebel With A Cause don't fret I have an update for that story coming up very soon.
When a Lady Misbehaves
Why do the bad things always feel so good? From an early age with the right upbringing decorum and moral-fiber are principles that are instilled into you. You also learn to establish what's right and what's wrong and you firmly ascertain the distinction between the two.
You're almost always expected to have the strength to do what is consistent with your values and principles in a difficult situation. Being a person of influence is even worst because you're held to higher moral standards.
A lady of title must always smile, be polite, act like a lady and above all one must behave. But what if one day you got a taste of what it was like to walk on the wild side? What it was like to be bad? And despite your best efforts to be the good little girl you promised Daddy you'd be you found that you were contradicting yourself and misbehaving again? That was exactly Elena Gilbert's current thoughts and struggle and it had all began seven months ago.
7 months earlier
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. - William Shakespeare
Elena Gilbert was exhausted with being a good girl. The role of a good girl was so customary to her every day routines that it seemed as if she were constantly auditioning her life for new parts but had been typecast in it and could not break character. Tonight though, the world was her stage and she would act however she wanted to. She was going to take a walk on the wild side. She was going to lose her virginity and Caroline Forbes was going to help her do it.
"Yum-my what about him?" The blonde-haired green-eyed Caroline asked, pointing out a random tall dark-haired stranger across the room.
Who Mr. Sensitive? He totally seems like the type to call you nonstop after sex, pass. Elena thought wryly to herself.
"Yeah uh no he's totally not my type" Elena negated, visibly cringing at the thought of losing her virginity to that guy.
" Seriously E-l-e-na that's the point of this whole thing, you know do it with a guy you won't feel compelled to speak to ever again after tonight" Caroline countered acerbically, she was definitely getting tired of trying to help the picky Elena find a guy. She had pointed out nearly twenty guys but none were up to snuff for princess Elena.
"I know but that still doesn't mean I'm about to jump into bed with just anyone" Elena berated the impatient blonde, gripping the white Styrofoam cup in her hand in annoyance.
Sighing resignedly, Elena gazed around the party taking in her surroundings. The house in which the party was being hosted was relatively huge. However despite its colossal size it seemed to have shrunk down to half its size because it was crammed to the corners with a crowd of teenagers. The party was in full swing as a gaggle of teenagers in varying states of inebriation stood milling around, dancing, and playing beer pong. It was an impromptu party that had been thrown by Elena's classmate Tyler Lockwood as a sort of respite for the SATS that the senior class had recently taken that Friday. The various happy, drunken, and near-nude teenagers gave testament to the relief they all felt at being done with the grueling tests.
"Oh my god is that Anna? She's totally topless" Caroline gasped in a shocked tone at her classmate who was walking outside with no shirt or bra on. Elena's face turned crimson as she gazed at the shirtless brunette outside. In her house open nudity was certainly a taboo thing and if she ever dared to do anything remotely close to what the drunk brunette was doing her father would probably drop her off at the nearest convent.
It was a crazy party and the exact type of party Elena had spent her 18 years of life avoiding. Not like she would've been able to go anyway if she wanted to, which she hadn't ever wanted to.
The only reason she was even at this party was because of her father. He was the sole reason she had set out to debase herself, him and his negligent and overbearing ways.
Grayson Gilbert the mayor of Mystic Falls, "doting" father and golf-playing extraordinaire had pissed her off for the last time. Fury wasn't an unknown or rare emotion she felt when it came to her father. In fact it was all too familiar. Elena had grown accustomed to being angry with her father because loving him and being mad at him kind of went hand in hand. Because she hated that she loved him. Grayson was a hard man with a steely persona. He expected nothing but the best from the people who surrounded him and he left no room for human error. He was gruff and rarely if ever showed any form of human emotion. Elena had been convinced as a child that he was some form of a robot given his extreme staidness.
Over the years he had constantly reamed her out, criticized her and harped over everything she did, earning him her grudging resentment. She had wanted to love her father unconditionally because that's what girls did right? They adored their fathers and in return their fathers spoiled them and gave them whatever they wanted. Grayson wasn't like that though. He was always busy and always getting swept up in an endless amount of soirees, charity functions and political events. Other than when he was criticizing her about something he never spoke to her beyond polite and stilted conversation. Elena doubted that he even knew anything about her other than her name and birthday, and most days she wasn't even so sure of that. It was almost like he barely even knew she existed. She was hardly a blip on his radar, and she didn't like it. Not one bit.
She wanted him to notice her and be proud of her.
She wanted him to realize that she had 4.0 GPA and that she was the top of her class. That all the money he had spent on her etiquette lessons had paid off because she was the epitome of a proper lady. That she didn't drink or do drugs. And that just yesterday she had gotten her early acceptance letter from Harvard. A school in which he had constantly drilled into her was the only school acceptable for her to go to.
She had been so excited to tell him all about it and practically pleaded and coerced him into agreeing to let her cook a family dinner for him, her mother and herself.
She had waited earlier tonight with baited breath for him to come walking through the door so that she could give him the good news. But as the candles that adorned the table slowly burned down the wick it had also burned away her excitement and naivety. Her mother, a quiet and passive woman, had looked at her pitifully across the dinner table feeling sorry for her because she knew. She knew that Grayson wasn't coming. Elena had sat crying at the dinner table her feelings towards her father growing cold along with the food on the table.
It was right then and there that she had made a rash decision to rebel against her father. If she couldn't get his attention by adhering to the rules then maybe she could get it by breaking them. Running into her room she had impulsively called the towns "screw up" Caroline Forbes taking the talkative blonde up on her earlier offer to go to Tyler's party with her. Which in her opinion was an incredibly desperate move, given her obvious aversion to the mouthy blonde.
Elena had always pretty much disliked Caroline. So going anywhere with her had always been on her invisible list of "Things Elena would never do".
Caroline Forbes was beautiful, opinionated and reckless, so reckless in fact that her last random acts of crazy had landed her a tough stint in rehab. Caroline did what she wanted with whom she wanted whenever she wanted. It was for that exact reason that Elena resented her. Governed by a world of stiff rules Elena couldn't even begin to imagine doing whatever she wanted when she wanted. Elena was completely and absolutely jealous of Caroline's freedom. But despite her feelings of envy she knew that the perfect person to help her piss her father off would be Caroline.
Once her father got wind of her hanging out with Caroline he would be furious.
"Hel-lo earth to Elena" Caroline said interrupting Elena's thoughts and waving her hand in front of the scowling brunettes face to get her attention.
"I'm sorry I'm totally zoning out what's up?"
"What about him right there? He looks. Equipped" Caroline giggled, the tip of her pink tongue darting out her mouth to lick her lips. Elena 's brown eyes warily followed Caroline's gaze over to Tyler Lockwood, the walking, talking, idiot with no redeemable qualities except for his abs.
"Seriously Caroline that's Tyler, he's the one throwing this party and just about the biggest ass you'll ever meet" Elena scoffed. Caroline stared at the pretty brunette genuinely nonplussed for a second. In all the time she had known the uptight virginal Elena she'd absolutely never heard her swear or use foul language.
"No correction he has a nice ass " Caroline replied staring at the dark-haired jock across the room admiringly.
" Well then I guess his appeal is subjective, that'd be a no for me "
"He'd definitely be a yes for me " Caroline retorted, her hot eyes following his every movement. Elena was beginning to get on her last nerves, and with each passing second she was clearly remembering why she never hung out with the little prima donna. The girl just did not know how to have a good time. And Caroline loved having a good time.
Getting equally as aggravated with Caroline and tired of listening to her sing Tyler's praises, Elena knew it was time to give the blonde her walking papers.
"Then stop drooling over him and go after him," Elena laughed gesturing towards Tyler.
Caroline visibly perked up at Elena's words "Seriously? I mean not that I don't wanna help you or anything but-
"Caroline go I'm fine " Elena pressed firmly, motioning towards Tyler once again.
Caroline shot her acquaintance one last look of uncertainty before ambling after her coveted jock.
Elena downed the contents of the white foam cup she was holding and laughed humorlessly. She totally sucked at being bad and spontaneous.
This Is great just great I've been here for nearly three hours and I still can't manage to find a guy to sleep with. She mused. And now Caroline had left her to figure out the situation all by herself. Well to be honest it wasn't like Caroline was renowned for being considerate so she couldn't really be upset with her.
Perhaps she should just throw in the towel and admit defeat besides deciding to lose her virginity out of anger towards her father probably wasn't her finest hour. But then again she just couldn't she had come here tonight to make a point and so that she could finally rid herself of the good girl moniker and she wasn't leaving until she did. She was going to find someone and she was going to do it all by herself. Before she left this party she was going to find someone to take her virginity there just wasn't any other way.
I really hope you guys enjoyed that. This story was totally a spur of the moment type of thing. Please be kind and review the more responses the better :) I love hearing your feedback.
