Chapter Four: Dodge Ball & The Plan Goes ahead
13th November 2011 - 8.00am
Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
"Five more minutes," Elena grumbled.
She turned over in her sleep trying to ignore her alarm.
Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
Elena groaned and sat up slowly, turning off her alarm clock. She didn't want to get out of bed, she felt uneasy about today, she didn't get much sleep either, thinking too much about what Katherine would be up to next.
She had dreamed about all the possibilities of getting caught today with the plan they had all set in place. She had half a mind to back out of the plan and just suffer through whatever Katherine had planned for her.
She looked at the clock on her bedside and decided to get ready for school.
Half an hour later she said bye to her Aunt Jenna who was in such a good mood today that she had made Elena's lunch properly.
Jeremy followed Elena out of the house towards her car.
"Remember we're meeting at the parking lot at 10 sharp," Jeremy said to his sister.
Elena sighed, "I know Jer don't remind me, I've got a bad feeling about this."
Jeremy raised an eye brow in question, "Wait, don't tell me you're having second thoughts about all this."
"I am," Elena admitted "I just don't want you all getting caught because of me, it's a huge risk to go in there."
"Like Stefan said Elena, she stole from you. You're not actually stealing anything from her, you're just taking back what's yours." Jeremy said as Elena hopped into her car.
"Fine but don't make me regret doing this" Elena said finally
"See you in a few hours," Jeremy said as Elena pulled out of the driveway, she honked her horn as she left.
Elena strolled through the main doors and into the main hallway, heading towards her locker after arriving at school 10 minutes ago, she did get a lot of people pointing at her blue hair and giggles but she ignored it, Caroline was going to help her after school to dye it a color that wasn't blue so that's all that mattered to her.
She opened her locker to get her stuff out for PE session she had first up today, she closed her locker to see Bonnie and Caroline walking towards her.
"Hey," she said to them, as happy as she could be even though she was dreading what was happening in a few hours' time.
They all group hugged and then let go, Caroline was grinning.
"Why are you grinning?" Elena asked, looking at Caroline, confused on why her best friend would be so happy.
Caroline squealed which made Elena jump slightly.
"Are you going to tell her or should I?" Bonnie asked Caroline, rolling her eyes.
"I will, just let me have my happiness for a second," Caroline replied
Elena grew even more confused and her eyes began to narrow in frustration, "Don't tell me you went after Katherine already," Elena said, crossing her arms.
"Stefan and I... well I guess you could say-" Caroline was cut off by Bonnie who had enough of an excited Caroline. "Caroline and Stefan are dating." Bonnie blurted out.
"Hey! I was about to tell her myself thanks," Caroline said, slapping Bonnie on the arm.
Bonnie shrugged, "You took too long to say it, so I did the honors."
The confusion evaporated from Elena's face and a smile invaded her face now as she let out a little shriek, "Oh my, I am so happy you both decided to make it official" Elena hugged onto Caroline
The bell, all of a sudden, rang for first period to start. Elena and Caroline parted ways from Bonnie to make their way to PE.
Caroline and Elena were in PE along with Katherine of course and a group of other girls their age playing dodge ball, unluckily for Elena, Katherine was on their team.
Everything was going very good, so far their team was winning by 10 points, they had only 5 minutes left of class until Study period, which Elena's nerves were starting to get to her she wasn't sure now about sneaking out of school to get her diary back, for one if they got caught she would lose her perfect attendance record and Jenna would not be pleased with her.
"Chill Elena," Caroline said, walking over and standing next to her when she saw Elena look back at Katherine quickly who was holding the ball ready to hit it towards the other team.
Mrs. Freeman blew the whistle for them to continue the game.
It happened so quickly, at first Elena was standing there looking at the opposite team ready and thinking of what would be happening soon, then seconds later she was holding her head and on the wooden floor.
"You bitch!" Caroline shouted at Katherine, whom was smirking.
Katherine had thrown the ball at Elena's head instead of the other team.
Caroline stormed over to Katherine and slapped her on the cheek, Katherine pulled at Caroline's blonde hair which was in a ponytail. It would have lasted longer if Mrs. Freeman didn't pull the two girls apart.
"Stop, both of you, now. Miss Forbes please help Elena," Mrs. Freeman said as the bell rang. She turned to Katherine. "Miss Pierce, detention after school today."
The smirk immediately fell off Katherine's face.
Caroline walked over to Elena and helped her up.
"Are you ok? I can't believe she would do such a thing even in front of a teacher," Caroline said quickly.
"I'm fine, let's just get this over with," Elena sighed
Both girls walked out of class to meet up with the others.
10.30am - Same Day
"I really think we shouldn't be doing this," Elena said to the group as they arrived at Katherine's house.
"'Lena it's too late to back out now, we are already here." Stefan said as he got out of the car.
"Plus the bitch deserves it," Caroline said, her tone made it sound like this wasn't all that Caroline was going to do to Katherine in revenge.
Elena sighed as she followed Stefan, Bonnie, Caroline and Jeremy to the front door. Caroline tried to open the front door.
"It's locked," Caroline said.
Bonnie rolled her eyes as her airhead best friend.
"Caroline of course it's locked, everyone is out." Bonnie said, slowly to make sure her blonde friend understood.
"I'm not stupid," Caroline snapped at her.
"Keep telling yourself that honey," Elena heard Bonnie muttered under her breath.
Elena checked under the front door mat and found a key, she put it in the keyhole of the front door and unlocked it, and then she opened the door and smiled at them all.
"Show off," Caroline muttered as she walked pass Elena, Bonnie giggled.
When they were all inside Stefan turned to them.
"Ok, let's split up and search the house, if you find the diary let the rest of us know." he said, everyone nodded and split up.
Elena went alone while Jeremy went with Bonnie and Caroline went with Stefan.
She walked upstairs and down the hallway to a door that was wide open on the right hand side, she walked in to see lavender walls and white carpet, there was photos of Katherine and Damon, then Katherine with her friends Elena guessed. She realized she was in Katherine's bedroom.
She walked around the room, looking for her diary.
"Now if I was Katherine, where would I put Elena's diary?" Elena said out loud to herself.
She checked the bedside tables, the drawers at the bedside tables, she checked Katherine's closet, she checked under the pillows on Katherine's bed but still nothing.
Elena sighed in frustration, she was getting nowhere with this search and it was nearly lunch time. She looked around carefully and then went over to Katherine's mirror and started opening drawers there, she opened the underwear drawer and saw a purple book, curious she took it out and opened it.
Elena realized she was holding Katherine's diary. She didn't think Katherine was the type to write in a diary but from the looks of it she did.
She jumped when she heard a car door slam shut outside; Elena walked over to the window and looked out to see Damon's car was there, he and Katherine were walking up the driveway towards the front door.
"Why isn't she in school?!" Elena said out loud to herself.
She knew her friends and her brother probably escaped but she had nowhere to escape to as she heard Katherine and Damon walk inside the house. She heard voices and then footsteps walking up the stairs.
Elena bit her lip and stood there like a deer in the headlights, she was freaking out as she saw the door handle turned.
She prayed for a miracle, knowing in a few seconds she was going to be caught, not knowing if it was Damon or Katherine opening the door.
There we go with Chapter Four. Thanks to my beta readers becausethenight . Thank you everyone that has reviewed, I do enjoy reading the reviews and it encourages me to post chapters as quickly as possible. So please review this chapter.
I wonder who is going to find Elena….Will it be Damon or Katherine? Tell me who you guys think it will be in your review and why.
Some people may not have read as I checked with the reviews, the voting on last chapter does not mean it's going to happen anytime soon, say if Elena and Damon kissed at a party it wouldn't happen in the story anytime soon as I want people to be surprised.
Season 5 is starting in just a few days…I'm so excited, what about everyone else? I really want to see how Katherine is at being human and if she's better human than vampire.
Until next time! Review please!
