"Guys, don't freak out," Ethan says. "I've thought it over, and this is our best shot, okay?"
Benny, Sarah and I were all wondering what Ethan was talking about when Jesse came into view.
Sarah and I hissed at the sight of him.
"Sarah," Ethan admonished. "Abbey."
What was he doing here?!
"You two aren't very happy to see me," Jesse says, looking at me and Sarah. "I can tell."
"You bit my best friend!" Benny accused.
"And you made me suck out the venom when you knew what it would do!" Sarah yelled.
"Then you turned me, when I didn't want to be a vampire!" I add.
"And I'd love to be sorry about that," Jesse confesses. "But you all know I've done much, much worse."
Unfortunately, that was true.
Ethan had better have a good reason as to why he asked Jesse to come back.
"Later," Ethan says, trying to calm us all down. "The man who has the Lucifractor is related to the wizard you took down two hundred years ago."
"Sinistero family revenge," Jesse rolls his eyes. "What a shock."
He was trying to lighten up the situation, but it wasn't working. I didn't trust him to help us.
"How did you stop his super great grandfather?" Benny asked, getting to the point.
I stared Jesse down, wanting to rip his head off.
"He loved power," Jesse explains. "He loved to show it off. I let him wipe out most of my flock with the Lucifractor, while I snuck up behind him and drained him dry." Jesse looked at me and Sarah. "I told you I'd done worse."
I still wasn't buying it, and I glared at him with disdain. I also bared my fangs and hissed at him, as did Sarah.
It was good to know that I wasn't the only ex-girlfriend who hated his guts.
"We need to get to the Council," Ethan says. "That's probably where Stern will be."
We all head for the door, and Jesse catches my arm, walking us back towards the kitchen, out of sight and earshot of the others.
"It's good to see you again," he tells me.
"You're lying," I tell him.
"No, I'm not," he says.
Jesse pulls me into him and gives me a full-on passionate kiss, that throws me for a loop. I didn't know where I was, who I was, or what day it was.
After a few seconds, I get my bearings straight and push him off of me.
"Get off of me!" I almost yell. "I'm dating Rory now."
"What do you even see in that dork?" Jesse asks.
"He's not a colossal jerk," I say, defensively.
"Ouch," he says, faking offense.
I try to pull away, but he still had my arm.
"Let go of me," I tell him. "I really don't want to rip your head off."
"Someone's gotten feistier," he mocks. "And hotter."
"Seriously Jesse," I say, baring my fangs. "Let. Me. Go."
Without another word, he lets go of my arm.
I just shake my head at him and stalk out of the kitchen, grabbing my jacket off of the chair.
I walked out to the driveway where Ethan, Benny and Sarah were waiting for us.
Apparently, my annoyance at Jesse showed on my face because their expressions changed when they saw me come out of the house with Jesse behind me.
I knew he was smirking, their expressions showed it.
"Don't even ask," I say, annoyed.
When we get to the Council, there's a pile of ashes on the floor.
"Is that what I think it is?" I ask.
"Yes. Vampire's ashes from where the Lucifractor absorbed them," Jesse answered.
"I didn't ask you," I retort.
Ethan and Sarah look at me and Jesse and then back at each other. I knew they were suspicious of what was going on between us.
I tried to ignore their questioning gaze.
"We're a little late to the party," Jesse says, trying to lighten the mood again.
"Where would Stern go?" Ethan asked.
We all looked at Jesse, waiting for his response.
"The Caller," Jesse explains. "We use it to communicate with other covens, but he can use it to broadcast the Lucifractor's field across the entire town at once."
Ethan looks at Jesse, for an answer of what to do next.
Jesse motions with his arm that we should go on to the Council's Caller.
Realizing that he was the only one that knew the way, he took the lead and led us to the council's library, where we ran into Stern.
When he noticed the five of us, he smiled.
"Ethan, so happy you could make it," he says insincerely.
"Well, I got bored of looking at dead people," Ethan says.
"I can think of one I'd like to see," Sarah says.
I nod my head in agreement. Vice Principal Stern had definitely made Abbey's list, and that was not a good place to be. Especially since I had become a vampire.
"Benny," Stern says, snapping his hands, and a purple light appeared, then he gestured for Benny to come towards him. Benny obeyed and walked towards him.
We all look at Benny, puzzled as to what he was doing. He seemed to be in some sort of trance.
"Benny and I had a little conversation when I caught him in the office," Stern explains. "Well, a one-sided conversation, really." Stern looks at Benny and whispers into Benny's ear. "Take care of your friends for me. There's a good boy." And he walks out of the room.
Benny's back is facing us, so we can't see what he's doing.
Finally, he turns around with a wicked glint in his eyes and he's smirking.
"Benny?" Ethan asked.
Then, Benny hurled a fireball at us, and we ducked, barely missing it.
When we were on the floor, I noticed Jesse had his arm protectively around me. Was he ever going to give up?
"We have to take Benny out," Jesse says. "He's an acceptable loss."
I glare at Jesse.
"No, he's not," Ethan chuckled.
"What's so funny?" Sarah asked annoyed.
Ethan pulls out his phone and holds it above where were hiding, and plays some sort of chant in Latin.
I didn't know what it was, but it knocked Benny out.
"What is that thing?" Sarah asked.
"Yeah, what was that?" I ask.
"After that time the magic camera turned Benny into evil Benny," Ethan explained. "He sent me an email marked 'In Case of Evil Benny, Open This.' I never thought I'd get the chance to use it."
"You guys are such dorks," I sigh.
Ethan ignored me, and went over to Benny to see if he was okay.
"Don't hurt me again, Grandma," Benny muttered in his sleep.
"'Don't hurt me again, Grandma?'" I ask.
"Who knows," Sarah says, dismissively.
"You guys need to go stop Stern," Ethan says.
"But Ethan-" I start to say.
"Go!" Ethan interrupts me.
Jesse leads me and Sarah to the Caller, where Stern is dressed in a dark cloak, and has his hands around the Lucifractor, like he was getting ready to do a spell.
"Ya know," Sarah says. "Only some people can pull off a cape." Sarah bares her fangs. "You're not one of them."
I wanted so badly to bite his head off. He pissed me off more than Jesse did.
"Huh, now I see the resemblance," Jesse says. "Spitting image of old Galen Sinistero. But with a head."
"What do you know about him?" Stern asked, confused.
"Jesse, now is really not the time to be reminiscing," I remind him.
He ignored me, and continued to boast.
"I remember how his blood tasted," Jesse gloated. "Even after two hundred years."
"Wow," Stern said, not amused. "I'm going to enjoy this."
I saw Ethan sneaking up behind Stern, trying to stop him.
"Enjoy what?" I ask.
Stern doesn't answer me. Instead, he turned the Lucifractor on Jesse, Sarah and myself.
The last thing I see before the Lucifractor hits me, is Ethan's eyes cloud over.
"Ah," we all cry out in pain.
The bolt of power felt like it was draining us. I knew that if this went any longer we'd all be dead.
After what seemed like forever, the Lucifractor let up and we tumbled to the floor. I felt weak.
I could hear Stern gloating about how much power he had now, but I wasn't paying attention to the words, I was in too much pain.
Ethan rushes over to us, and checks on Sarah.
"Sarah," he says urgently, and helps her up.
Jesse and Sarah had already gotten up, and I was still lying on the floor, feeling too weak to move.
Jesse crouches down, about to pick me up.
"No," I tell him. "I can get up by myself."
"No you can't," he says. "This is a matter of life and death."
"Let me die then," I say.
He looks at me, shocked.
I didn't want him touching me, that included picking me up and carrying me.
"I won't let you," Jesse says, picking me up. Ignoring my feeble attempts to push him away.
I wasn't happy. I tried hissing at him, but the Lucifractor had drained my energy, I didn't have enough to muster one.
Benny comes into the room.
"What'd I miss?" he asks.
"You made it just in time for the end if we don't leave now," Ethan says. "Go, Run! Now!"
My eyes are starting to close, and I feel Jesse running at vampire speed, trying to get out of Whitechapel.
The last thing I see is a burst of purple as my eyes shut closed.
Rory and Erica had been following Anastasia for what seemed like hours, when Anastasia suddenly stopped.
"If we're supposed to be running away," Erica says. "Shouldn't we be 'running?' Like, 'away?'"
"Be silent," Anastasia commands, staring down at Whitechapel. "We're waiting."
"For what?" Erica asks.
All of a sudden, there's a huge burst of purple light, that diminished as quickly as it had appeared.
Rory's mouth popped open, and he looked from Erica to Anastasia. All he could think about was Abbey. He was worried sick about her. He wasn't sure if she'd make it out okay.
He fought the urge to yell out her name.
"That," Anastasia answered. "It is done."
"Nice explosion," Rory notes, trying to hide his worrying. "Ethan and Benny will be sad if they miss that."
Anastasia suddenly flies out of sight, along with Erica.
Rory is the last to leave, getting one last glance at the town he loved.
"Abbey's okay," he thought. "She has to be."
Okay guys, I don't know if you were blown away by that cliffhanger ending of the finale like I was.
I don't know if Abbey is dead or not. It depends on if there's a season 3, and I pray that there is.
Here's the explanation as to why Abbey was affected by the Lucifractor the way she was: Since Abbey is technically a 'new' vampire, she's not as strong as Sarah and Jesse because they're older than she is. If they do survive, she'll be fine. Nothing a little human blood can't do. LOL.
Also, I do not own MBV, only my OC Abbey
