Bless The Broken Road by The Rascal Flatt’s
“Anyone home?” I yelled stepping through the door way of my brother's house. We always say it belongs to a family member but since our nephew was killed by my brother, it was officially our house. The house looked just like I remembered it, it had our old furniture and paintings. There was the vase that my mother bought when I was 6 and there was my very own painting from when I was 14, it was the first one I ever finished and liked. I could see some the things Zack had added, since it was his house in a way, there was a picture of him and I when he was 7 when his dad and mom were still around. But of course Zack was dead and gone, killed by my oldest brother. The only reason I knew all this was because I had Lexi updating me all the time, but of course my brother went and killed her too. I love him, but he has some issues.
“ANYONE HOME?!” I yelled even louder trying to get someones attention. Someone should be home, Damon wasn't going to school, so unless he has a new toy I would expect him to be here.
“Hello? Who are you?” A girl said walking in. She had long brown hair that was laying straight down her back, she was so familiar and it took me a second to put all the pieces and to remember that she wasn't dead. She was never dead.
“KATHERINE! YOU EVIL WITCH!” I screeched jumping towards her ready to rip her head off. I got close to her neck until I felt strong arms wrap around my waist and chest pulling me away from her.
“Clara, wrong girl. Leave her alone. Let me explain.” Damon whispered in my ear holding onto me tightly.
“Bull! It's her!” I screamed trying to get at her again. I clawed at Damon's arms trying to get him to let go but he just kept healing.
“CLARA, calm down NOW!” Damon yelled. I relaxed Damon of all people wouldn't be holding me back if it was the real Katherine so I trusted him for now but if I had my doubt's the witch was dead.
“Fine I'm calm.” I said dropping my arm and breathing deeply to fix my eyes.
“Now if I put you down will you attack her?” Damon asked.
“No, I'll be good.” I said groaning. Damon was holding a little to tight and it hurt slightly.
Damon put me down but kept his hands on my shoulders. I was only 5 feet so everyone towered over me.
“Clara, this is Elena. She is a decedent of Katherine, it is a very long story but she is a doppelganger of Katherine.” Damon said his grip tightening on my shoulders.
“Really? I guess you guys only figured it out after Lexi was dead?” I asked, I purposely added the last part to get my revenge, Lexi was family to me.
“Wait! You knew Lexi? Who are you?” Elena said looking at me closely. She looked like she was trying to put my face to a name. She saw the Damon and Stefan in my features she just didn't know it yet.
“Yeah, Lexi was like a sister to me. And Damon and Stefan really are my brothers. My name is Clara Salvatore.” I could smell Elena's blood and hear her heartbeat thudding away in her chest.
“Oh, I never knew you guys had a sister? And I'm sorry about Lexi. She really was great.” I could see myself liking her.
“They don't like bragging about me much. I'm to perfect.” I said. I took a step towards Elena, I wanted to get to know her. Damon's arms went around my chest and locked.
“You idiot, I have more self control then you do.” I said turning to look at him. He smirked then let me go.
I turned back to Elena and held out my hand. “I'm Clara, I'm sorry about the misunderstanding. Katherine and I never really got along.” I said giggling to myself, about how I tortured Katherine with the spiders in her hair and when I put vervain in her hair brush after I learnt what she was.
“Yeah, I don't really know anyone that did.” She said laughing with me.
“Don't take any offense to this, but which idiot are you with?” I asked nodding my head at Damon who was watching me like a hawk.
“Stefan, Damon is just a friend. And I am really sorry about what Damon did it wasn't right. Was it Damon?” She said looking over my shoulder.
“Yes, I am very sorry. It was a big mistake.” Damon said in his flat bored tone.
“Wow so you got both whipped? We are defiantly going to get along.” I said smiling at her.
“Ha ha funny. So how are you Clara?” Damon asked coming up and joining our little circle.
“Well I'm single again, I tried Stefan's animal diet, that didn't work out to well, I just came back from Australia, there blood is pretty good, even if it was only the blood bank blood.” I said licking my lips accidentally, then I remembered Elena. I looked at her and she seemed completely fine with what I had just said. She hung out with Damon to much.
“Go to England, yummy.” Damon said smiling.
“You know, you look like both your brothers but you are so like Damon, well the good parts so far.” Elena said laughing. I smiled at her.
“Well, I'm going downstairs to get some blood. You want some?” Damon asked. I nodded and he walked off to the basement.
I went and sat down in the foyer, Elena sat across from me and I kicked my feet up on the coffee table.
“Where is Stefan?” I asked looking around a little. This place hasn't changed since last time I visited.
“He had to go talk to Caroline about Tyler's change coming up.” She said.
I raised my eyebrow.
“Caroline is a friend of mine that Katherine changed and Tyler is a werewolf, and Caroline has been helping him learn some things.” Elena said clearing it all up for me.
“A werewolf? Wow, I haven’t met one since 1935, I thought they were all extinct.” I said amazed.
“Oh how did you know one?” Elena asked intrigued.
“An old friend of mine accidentally killed a woman in a car accident. I met him a couple years after that and we became best friends. Did you know that werewolves can stop the aging process? Kinda of like vampire's can turn there emotions off. Its quite cool but not many know about it.” I said smiling.
“Maybe you could talk to Tyler one day. You know let him know everything you do, explain some things.” She said looking at me happily.
“Of course, I know how hard it was for Jason. We studied and did research for the longest time and then he met a woman he fell in love with and decided to start aging again.” I said, it kind of hurt me when he told me but I saw how happy he was with her so we stayed in touch and his wife knew what he was.
“Oh, that is stuff Tyler would want to know.” Elena said sitting up. I heard the basement door open then close and Damon walking into the foyer.
“Want it microwaved?” Damon asked walking in. I shook my head and held out my hand for the cup.
“Thanks.” I said taking a sip.
“Clara, how were you changed?” Elena asked carefully. I knew that sometimes vampires were very touchy about that subject so I understood her nervousness.
“Well after Katherine turned my brothers, and Stefan accidentally killed our father I was all alone and Stefan and Damon knew that so they came and gave me this necklace,” I said grabbing my necklace to show her, “They gave me an address and then fed me their blood. They said it was completely my choice and I had about a day to chose. And obviously you know what I chose. I fed from my nanny and then went and found my brothers. We traveled and all that stuff then I went on my own for a while, I check in every now and then. But I'm going to be here for awhile, join High School, make friends, go to parties. Have the normal High School life I never got.” I said then I took another sip of the blood.
“What grade will you be going in?” Elena asked.
“12, Stefan and I were born 9 months apart so us both being in same grade is normal.”
“Oh, you'll have us and Bonnie, Tyler, Caroline. But you might have Gym with my brother Jeremy, he got to skip a grade with Gym. He knows everything so if you can't find us you can talk to him.” She said reassuring me.
“Your brother knows everything?” I asked, I was surprised.
“Yeah, its a long story but pretty much he fell in love with a vampire and then lots of other things happened so he knows about witch's, werewolves and vampires.” She said calmly.
I gasped, “Witch's still. Any Bennett's?” I asked. I always loved Emily Bennett, we connected because of how much she hated Katherine. She may have served her but she still hated her.
“Yeah, my friend Bonnie is a decedent of Emily.” Elena said getting slightly excited.
“Oh aweso-.” I was cut off by the front door opening. I put my finger to my lips, then I ran off to hide.
I hid upstairs so I could see everything but Stefan wouldn't see me.
“Hey guys!” Stefan said walking in. He lifted his nose slightly, smelling the air. I ran as fast as possible to the hallway making sure I ran behind him. Stefan spun around quickly trying to see me. Then I ran behind him again, I grabbed Elena and ran back upstairs.
“Scream.” I whispered in Elena's ear. She nodded smiling like crazy then let out a perfect scream. I covered her mouth then took off running before Stefan came. I got downstairs when he got upstairs. I hid Elena in the hallway then I took off after Stefan, he turned just in time to see my blur jumping at him. I wanted to mess with him cause I knew this was how Lexi came to visit him.
I felt the veins underneath my eyes pooping out and my eyes going through the change. I held Stefan down by the throat and smiled at him.
“Hey big brother.” I smiled.
“CLARA!” Stefan said jumping up and hugging me, “How are you?” He said squeezing me.
“I'm good, guess what!”
“I'm staying for awhile!”
“Awesome!” Stefan said pulling me into another big hug.
“That is not the normal big brother reaction.” Elena said walking back in.
“Stefan I would love to catch up but I am tired and I need to unpack.” I said yawning to prove my point.
“Ok you go to your room, Damon and I will bring your bags up.” Stefan said hugging me once more then letting me go upstairs. Last time I came to visit I got to pick my room so I got the room with the nice windows and I had some nice furniture.
I looked at the left wall that had all my pictures on it. There was one of Stefan, Damon and I from every decade, there was a picture of just Damon and Stefan from when they used to play football before Katherine showed up, there was a picture of when I was 5 and it was with my big brothers, then there was one of me as a baby again with my big brothers, there was a picture of Jason and I sitting in the library laughing and there was a picture of Emily Bennett and I.
“Lots of memories.” Elena said at my doorway.
“Lots of years.” I said smiling at her.
“Was it ever lonely for you?” She asked walking in and looking around.
“Every day is lonely for me, Damon has his girlfriends and blood bags, Stefan had his schooling and now you. But I have never had anything, the only thing that ever really took my mind off of the loneliness was Jason, he was my best friend and now I only have my brothers, but they've always been busy.” I said sitting on my bed and bringing my legs up to my chest.
“I'm sorry, but High School can change that. I know you will get along great with Jeremy and Tyler, and Caroline and Emily would love to meet you. And there are lots of other people that you will meet, hey who knows you might even find the love of your life.” She said laughing.
“Maybe, it will be nice to meet new people and make friends.” I said then I yawned again.
“Hey Clara, I think we got everything.” Damon said walking in carrying half of my bags and my guitar case. Stefan followed him carrying the rest.
“Yeah that looks like everything.” I said smiling.
“Come on Elena, let Clara unpack and I got to get you home before Jenna kills me.” Stefan said grabbing Elena's hand and pulling her out.
“Bye Clara see you at school tomorrow!” She yelled running out the door to keep up with Stefan.
“Have a good night sweetie.” Damon said coming to kiss me on the forehead.
“Night.” I said as he walked out of my room to let me pack and get ready for bed.
I started running as fast as I could to my bags and then my closet and dressers. I finally got to my bags with all my books in it. It took about 5 of my big suitcases and that wasn't all of them, I had to leave most of them back in storage. I started running again and I filled my bookcase up quickly. Then I walked to my dresser and grabbed out my favorite pj's, boxer shorts and a tank top.
“Clara?” Stefan said knocking on my door. I went and opened it.
“Hey, Elena home safe?” I asked.
“Yeah, I just came to say goodnight.” He said hugging me to him. “I'm really happy your here. I've missed you.” He said into my hair.
“I'm happy to be here too, It's going to be nice.” I said smiling into his chest.
“I'll let you go to sleep.” He said all big brotherly.
“Hmm, love you.” I said and he left to let me sleep.
I went to the bathroom and changed my clothes and brushed out my hair and brushed my teeth. I looked in the mirror and made my face change over and over again. I loved the feeling and power it gave me, to look so scary and have fangs that can break threw skin like a knife threw butter.
I ran back to my room and laid down in my bed. I closed my eyes but I still felt all jittery, I couldn't get over the feeling that something wonderful was going to happen here. Something that would change my life completely.
I was running deep in the woods and I came to a cemetery. There was million's of Raven's flying around and sitting on gravestones. All of them were staring at me waiting for me to do something. I heard my name being called from the forest, it was a sweet, raspy voice. “Clara... Please help me...” It kept saying over and over again. I was about to start running until I saw the wolf standing by the tombstone closest to me. I smiled and walked over to him, I knew I should have been running away, a little voice in my head kept screaming to run and hide but I trusted it for some weird reason... I bent down to pet him and he licked my hand. I whispered something in his ear that sounded like a name. Then I said it louder... “Tyler”.
I Heart Question Mark by Taylor Swift
“Clara, wake up.” Stefan said leaning over me, his hand on my cheek.
“Morning.” I mumbled rubbing my eyes and stretching. I felt bones crack and pop as I stretched.
“It's not morning, you weren't sleeping. You fell into a comatose state, your body was refueling, sweetie it's been 3 days.” Stefan said sitting on my bed.
“Holy, that's why I'm so hungry. So I guess I'm not going to school today.” I mumbled laughing.
“No, but Tyler's here.” Stefan said nodding to the bedroom door. Tyler was standing there leaning against the door frame. His blood was pumping under his thin skin on his neck, it went a little faster when he looked at me.
“Get out.” I yelled, I jumped out of bed and ran to the door to slam it in his face. I leaned against and breathed deeply to calm myself.
“Should I get you blood?” Stefan asked. I nodded and let him open the door but I slammed it closed just barely catching his foot.
I took another deep breathe then I went and looked out the window. The sun was starting to set and it was beautiful, the sky was pink with red strikes running through it, almost as if someone was testing colors on the sky.
“Beautiful isn't it.” Someone said opening my door. I looked back to see Tyler standing in my door way smiling. I stopped breathing and smiled. He went to step closer but I put my hand up and shook my head.
“It's my blood isn't it?” Tyler asked stepping out of the room. All I could do was nod my head but he stayed by the door. We didn't say anything just looked at each other, he would smile every now and then but then he went back to looking deep in thought.
“I've got you 4 bags of blood, since the date might be a bit hard tonight.” Stefan said walking around Tyler and chucking them to me. I grabbed each one then I turned around and drank them quickly.
“What date?” I asked turning back around and wiping the blood off of my mouth.
“While since you missed our date that we had planned, we're going tonight.” Tyler said smiling and finally walking into the room.
“And tonight would be...?” I asked.
“Friday night.” Elena said running in and giving me a big hug, “I'm so happy you better now Clara. We've all been so worried.” Elena added smiling.
“It's nice to be back. But it felt like I just feel asleep for the night.” I mumbled blushing slightly. I had never meant to give Tyler that much blood.
“Well your awake now so lets do your hair and get you dressed. Now Tyler and Stefan get out.” Elena said giggling. Stefan nodded his head to us and left but Tyler kept watching me, almost waiting for me to object.
“Tyler, I'll be ok. I'll meet you downstairs.” I said smiling. He nodded then left after Stefan. I heard Damon come home but Stefan held him away from my room.
“Ok, how do you normally do your hair?” Elena asked sitting me down at my vanity table.
“Curly, naturally its wavy like Damon's when its long but I never have the patience for it.” I shrugging.
“Ok, Caroline.” Elena called and I heard Caroline run up the stairs, giggling like a school girl.
“I said do my hair, not anything else.” I groaned.
“Oh I'm just here to judge the look.” Elena said smiling at me then she sat on my bed.
After I had my shower and then Caroline did my hair. They kept it curly but they blow dried it and calmed it down a little bit. It actually looked very nice. Then I got dressed and they accessorized me and put on some light lipstick and eyeliner. I looked very nice and my outfit showed off my curves, and the heels made me a little taller than I was.
“You look BEAUTIFUL!” Caroline squealed. I laughed then twirled in front of the mirror. I felt pretty and happy for the first time in a long time.
There was a knock on the door causing Elena to jump but Caroline and I just laughed at her. I ran to open the door but Caroline grabbed me and pushed me into the bathroom to hide.
“Hello Tyler. She decided to walk to The Grill and meet you there.” Caroline said completely serious.
“Funny, I heard her a second ago. Come on out Clara.” Tyler called out the last part. I giggled then walked out raising my arms smiling.
Tyler just stared for a minute until Elena hit him on the back and he choked a little bit. “You look beautiful.” He said still staring.
“Yeah, slept for 3 days and I still look good.” I joked trying to get him to calm down. He laughed a little but didn't stop staring.
“Ok, come on let's go before some flies decide to make a home behind your molars.” I said grabbing his hand and walking out my door. I ignored Caroline and Elena's giggling and just kept walking.
“We're leaving now.” I yelled opening the door but Damon was in front of us before I could get out.
“Have her home by 10.” Damon warned.
“11.” I countered. I crossed my arms over my chest and Tyler put his arm around my waist. My outfit was a little more for summer then fall but since I never got cold I didn't think it mattered.
“10:30.” Damon said crossing his arm too.
“Sounds good, now we'll be off.” Tyler said pulling my out of the house.
“I could have gotten 11, why did you stop me?” I pouted.
“I believe you, but we would have been there forever if you had continued. And it's already 7.” Tyler said laughing and holding the door open for me and helping me in.
“Fine, but I'm going to win next time.” I said winking then I put my seat belt on. I didn't have to but it was a habit that began to grow when I decided not to compulse cops all the time and start actually following the road rules.
Tyler got into the car and smiled at me. “We're going to have fun right?” He asked shyly. He looked nervous as we pulled out of the driveway and onto the road.
“Tyler it will be fine, don't worry. Let's just relax and have fun.” I said grabbing his hand that was on the gear shift and I smiled. He smiled back then continued to drive to The Grill.
Now it's not my place to ask you all a question, but do you believe in true love? Because I believe that it exists, it lives inside of us just waiting for the right person to come along and break it free. Now you are all here reading my story of how I met the love of my life. The person that I would always love and always need but to many things may happen, and maybe one day I won't get the privilege to be with him.
“Hey Tyler!” Someone said walking up to Tyler and I. He was wearing a bus boy uniform and carrying a bucket of dishes. He was broad and tall like Tyler. He had a big goofy grin on his face and he had a slight bounce in his step.
“Hey Matt, this is Clara Salvatore.” Tyler said keeping his arm around my waist while talking to his friend.
“Hello Clara, I'm Matt Donaven. I'm the one that keeps Tyler under control, we didn't meet your first day of school but I did hear that Tyler here scooped you up quickly enough.” He winked at me and I felt myself blush.
“Well I fell for those green eyes.” He said tightening his arm around me. Again I felt myself blush like crazy.
“MATT ENOUGH SOCIALIZING! Get back to work!” The man behind the bar yelled pointing to a messy table.
“That's my cue to leave. But I'll talk to you guys later.” Matt said hitting Tyler on the arm and winking to me again.
“It was nice to meet you.” I said waving as he left.
“Come on lets sit.” Tyler said grabbing my hand and pulled my into an empty booth. I sat across from him and laughed.
“What's so funny?” He asked opening the menu.
“When I came back, I never imagined going out on a date. Going to school, of course. Making friends, probably. But dating a nice guy, that was never on the plan.” I giggled.
“Well when I was told you were moving into town I never thought that I would fall for you. I actually thought that maybe I would hate your guts. But here we are. Now what do you want to eat?” Tyler asked handing me the menu.
“I think I will have the Bac-.” I said but I was interrupted by someone clearing their throat. I turned to look up and I saw Isaiah standing at our table smiling down at me.
“Now, I know you two are on a date but Clara may I talk to you?” He said looking sincere. I looked at Tyler then I nodded. I didn't want to make a big deal, and cause a scene.
“Clara, we are on a date?” Tyler said grabbing my wrist gently.
“I'll be right back, I promise.” I said touching his hand and smiling. He smiled but I could see he was so worried, I got up and kissed him then I followed Isaiah outside.
“What do you want Isaiah?” I asked leaning against the building crossing my arms.
“The werewolf doesn't need you. He has the blonde, look she's already there taking your place.” Isaiah said nodding to the window. I looked and saw Caroline sitting beside Tyler. They were laughing and smiling and Caroline had her hand on Tyler's. I felt a sudden pain run through me, I wanted to cry out but my voice lost me.
“Their just friends.” I whispered looking back at Isaiah.
“Do you really believe that?” He said placing his hand on my shoulder.
“I believe Tyler.” I said lifting my chin in pride.
“Well maybe you want to look at this information I looked up.” He said handing me a big envelope. I opened it and took out pictures to see Caroline and Tyler holding hands, sitting and eating dinner together, there was even one of them kissing.
I felt tears sting my eyes but I pushed them back. “So, they dated. We haven't gotten to the EX talk yet. What's your point?” I asked shoving the pictures back in the envelope.
“Well, that doesn't look like their over it.” Isaiah said pointing back in The Grill. I looked and saw that Tyler had his hand in her hair and they were kissing. I let out a sob and the tears finally fell over.
“I may have been wrong, and treated you horribly but I would have never left you, or cheated on you. Please Clara, just stay with me for a little while. Let me show you that I have changed. I regret what I did to you every second of my life.” Isaiah said pulling me into a hug, I let him hug me because I knew he was telling the truth. Even when he caught me back in 1956 he never once laid a hand on me. He just wanted to talk.
“Clara, please let me just prove to you that I have changed. Please.” Isaiah whispered into my hair. I couldn't stop crying so I just nodded.
“Really!?! Oh thank you Clara. I promise you won't regret it, oh thank you.” He said bringing me into a tighter hug. I wrapped my arms around his waist and sobbed.
“I will never let you cry like this over that wolf again.” He murmured.
“Can I go home?” I asked pulling away and wiping the tears from my eyes.
“Of course my love. Come on I will drive you.” He said holding my hand and dragging me away. I looked in the window one last time to see Tyler sitting in the booth alone. Caroline was long gone and Tyler kept looking around. He turned to look threw the window as I went by and I stiffened. His eyes widened then almost as if everything clicked in his brain, he bolted up and ran to the door. I just kept walking. I held onto Isaiah's arm tighter.
“Clara, it will all be ok.” Isaiah said as we continued walking to his car.
“Clara! Where are you going?” Tyler said coming outside, he hit the door so hard that it slammed into the wall causing a dent. I flinched, Isaiah tightened his hold on me and we kept on walking.
“Clara!” Tyler yelled grabbing my other arm and pulled me towards him. “What did I do?” He asked looking down at me.
“You lied, you cheated and worse of all... You broke your promise, and my heart.” I said ripping out of his grip. I felt the tears spring back in my eyes.
“Please Clara let me explain. Please.” Tyler begged but I just turned around and walked away. I didn't want his lies and pleas. It was already so hard knowing that he was behind me watching me go. I wanted to turn around and run into his arms. I wanted to forgive him for breaking my heart and let him comfort me. But I knew that that would be a mistake. But I knew I would never love Isaiah like I love Tyler.
Love it soooo Much please update sooooon like asap
Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson
I sat in my room for 5 days, I haven't slept and I only ate because Damon shoved a straw down my throat to keep me healthy. I haven't spoken to anyone about anything but everyday Elena comes into my room and tells me everything I have missed. She comes everyday with a message from Tyler. They were always the same, 'Clara, please just give me time to explain. Please.' Sometimes he added different words and sometimes it came with a rose but I just ignored them. I let the flowers die just like I was.
I was starring out my window at the leaves falling and the birds chirping happily. I was finally out of tears but I was stiff and sore from sitting in the same position for so long. Isaiah came to visit every day, he was sweet and gave me time and he never pushed me to talk. He just sat with me until Damon kicked him out.
“Clara, there's someone here to see you.” Damon said opening my bedroom door. I just turned my head to look at him. He never announced when someone was over. “Come in, just remember I am not as trusting as my brother.” Damon said in my doorway looking behind him. He walked away and no one was there.
Until Tyler stepped into the doorway. He looked awful, he had bags under his eyes and his hair was greasy and he was in sweat pants and a sweater.
I jumped up then I groaned in pain and fell to the floor. My body felt like a huge Charlie Horse, I fell to the floor in a heap and I stayed there. I didn't even look up I just stayed on my floor and silently sobbed. I heard Tyler walk over to me and he sat on the floor by me, he didn't touch me or say anything. He just sat there quietly.
“Clara, I know I hurt you. But you don't understand, I never kissed her. She kissed me, I know that sounds like a bad line, but I'm serious. She apologized right after, Caroline and I did go out but that was a long time ago. We didn't mean to kiss, we are always going to be just friends and she knows how I feel about you. Please Clara, I can't lose you.” He said touching my back.
“I-” My voice cracked so I tried again, “I, I believe you.” I whispered looking up at him. He smiled and brought me into a hug. I stiffened and he let me go.
“What is it?” He asked.
“I said I believe you but Tyler, you broke my heart. Even if you didn't mean to, you still broke my heart. I believe you but I don't know if I can forgive you.” I said looking down at my hands.
“Will I ever be able to win your trust back?” Tyler asked grabbing my chin and making me look at him.
“I don't know, I can't promise you but maybe.” I shrugged, I didn't know how to answer him. I was confused and tired.
“I'll take it, just don't give up on me, please.”
“Tyler, I think you should know, I'm with Isaiah again. Sort of.” I mumbled, I couldn't look him in the eyes.
“Ok, as long as I still have a fighting chance I will never give up. But we can be friends.” He said taking me into his arms and he held me tight. I hugged him back, I wanted to forgive him, be with him officially but I needed to heal and see if I could trust him again.
“Let's be friends, and if I can try my hardest to trust you.” I said into his chest.
“Hey Clara.” Isaiah said walking into the room. When he saw me in Tyler's arms he practically snapped. “Oh, so I see how it is. Wolf comes back and you run right into his arms. What happened to giving me a chance?” He said glaring at me. I got out of Tyler's arms and frowned at Isaiah.
“We're just friends.” I said.
“After what he did to you? After all the work I've done to show you how bad he is!?!” Isaiah screamed.
“What do you mean 'All the work you've done'? What have you done Isaiah?” I asked walking towards him, he backed up until he was against the wall.
“What did you do?” I growled.
“I convinced Caroline to kiss your little wolf here. I told her every little secret about you especially the bad ones, that's why she kissed him. She fell for all of it, she doesn't love him. She just wanted you gone so that you wouldn't ruin him. She is a naive little girl, she may have a big heart but her little brain evens it out.” He snarled, he grabbed me by the throat. I snarled right back and grabbed his wrist and twisted. It broke with a snap.
“You want to know something about my brothers? They care about me... And really hate you.” I said bringing my knee up into his private parts. He groaned and crumbled over in pain. “DAMON! STEFAN!” I screamed. I put my foot on Isaiah's neck and pressed.
“Clara, I did it cause I love you. I want to be with you.” Isaiah choked out.
“You didn't do it out of love. You did it because you want to own me. And posses me.” I snarled.
“What do you need sis?” Damon asked walking in. He saw me with my foot on Isaiah throat and started laughing. He actually bent himself at the waist trying to catch his breath but he would look back up and start laughing all over again.
“Let me guess, The Tomb?” He asked nodding his head at Isaiah. I nodded then took my foot off of his throat and I kicked him in the face to knock him out. It worked like a charm.
“Give him some personal time with Katherine.” I growled. I watched as Damon and Stefan carried him out then I sat down on my bed with a big sigh.
“See I told you, does this mean you will take me back?” Tyler asked sitting down beside me.
“Tyler, I love you. Please never forget that but I think I need to leave town. I know I just got here but so much stuff has already happened and I have complicated your life already. I think its better for me to travel with no connections then settle down.” I whispered all in one breathe.
“You can't leave, please. I'm in love with you, I have never felt this way about anyone. Please.” He said grabbing my face in his and holding tight.
“Tyler, I might come back. But please don't worry about me. Continue living, meet someone new. Please anything just don't wait for me.” I said placing my hand on his cheek and stroking it with me thumb.
“No, I can't live without you anymore. Please just stay for a little while, you'll see that everything will turn out ok.” He begged.
“No Tyler I have to go. But before I do can I have one last kiss?” I asked leaning in to brush my lips with his. He closed the distance and crushed his lips to mine. I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him down as I laid on my bed. He wrapped his arms around me like a cage and pulled me in close. I wrapped my legs around his waist.
“I have to go now.” I said pulling away and getting up from under him.
“Will you come back eventually?” He asked sitting on the edge of my bed as I looked for a bag to pack my stuff.
“Maybe.” I lied. I knew I could never come back, not until Tyler was old or dead. “Just don't wait for me please.” I added turning to look over at him.
“Ok.” Tyler said sadly.
“I think you should go please.” I said tears stinging my eyes.
“Come back for me.” Tyler said. He came over and kissed me on the cheek then he walked out my door. I fell to the floor and sobbed. I was letting go of the one thing that had brought me happiness, I was in love with him and that would never get over him.
I got up and changed. then I packed all my favorite things and a couple books.
“So your leaving?” Damon said walking in to my room. I nodded to him then kept on packing.
“Where you going to go?”
“England, don't worry I will keep in touch. Let you know where I am.” I said closing my bag and turning to look at him.
“Ok, just remember we love you.” He said taking me into his arms and hugging me tight. I sighed into his chest then I pulled away and put my jacket on.
“I love you guys too. But I just have to go.” I said and I walked out of my room for the last time.
Just A Dream by Nelly
I had no connection to Mystic Falls for a couple months then I sent Damon and Stefan a e-mail letting them know where I was and what I was doing. Now I don't want to bore you with all the details of what I was doing because there was nothing fun going on. So I will just show you the most important e-mails between everyone else and I.
I have news for you... Katherine actually killed Isaiah and she is on the breaking point of being mummified so all our problems are solved. Elena and I are talking about getting married, then changing her so that we can be together. The only thing I don't like is that I can't give her children, she would be such a wonderful mother. But of course Elena being Elena she won't admit that she will miss having children. But I can't convince her out of this so oh well. How are you? Are you settling down ok? Well I love you so much and I hope you come back soon.
That is awesome, its a nice thing to know that Isaiah won't bug me anymore. And I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! If you two get married it will be wonderful! And Stefan, Elena loves you so if she says she rather have you then children you should believe her. I am fine, its hard being alone even after a week with people, and I am not settling down at all. I am staying in a little cottage just outside Toronto, there is nothing nearby for miles so I'm free to do what I want, but it is still odd. I love you too, but I won't be coming back.
It's Elena...! How are you sweetie? Stefan thinks that I might miss having children, but I have you! I can do your hair, we can hang out. So don't worry about me, I miss you so much. And it's only been a month. I hope you come back soon. We all miss you and can't wait for you to come back. You are coming back aren't you? Tyler isn't the same either. We all miss you and he is keeping his promise but he isn't dating. I don't think he ever will again. Well I miss you a whole lot and I can't wait for you to come back.
I am ok, thanks for asking. And that is so nice of you to say and if you turn then we can be together, and you can always play with my hair. I'm growing it out at the moment. I want it back down to my lower back like it was before I turned. I miss you a lot but I don't think I'm going to come back. Tyler needs to have a normal life, without me, without complications. I miss you all too, but it is very hard to be alone. But it's harder to cause you pain and suffering.
Hey sweetie, its Bonnie. We all miss you a whole lot. I don't have much to say but I miss you and you should come back soon.
That is very sweet and I appreciate it. I miss you all to, but I don't think I will be coming back. So unless we run into each other this is goodbye. I'm sorry I never said it in person but 'Goodbye' and I'm sorry I left in short notice.
I think you should come home soon. Help me convince Stefan not to marry Elena. ;-) Everything here is ok but everyone misses you. But don't worry about me, I am fine. I just miss you is all. Now don't go falling over in shock. You know I love you. Come back soon. Please.
You know as well as I can that I can't come back. And you leave Elena and Stefan alone. :-P I miss everyone so much, and I never worry about you. You are awesome. I love you too, and I know you have always loved me. And don't tell Stefan but your my favorite brother. <3 And I might not be coming back but we will see each other... Silly.
The same kind of thing went on for a couple weeks. Tyler never sent me an e-mail because I begged everyone not to give them my e-mail. But there was not a second that went by that I didn't think of him. But I never planned on going back, at least not until I got the last e-mail from Stefan.
My dearest Sister,
You are invited to the wedding of:
On Saturday August 18th.
The reception will begin at 3:30 pm and the dinner/dance will end at 1:00 am.
The wedding theme will be happiness and forgiveness.
You are requested to be the maid of honor and you will be walking down the aisle with Mr. Tyler Lockwood.
Your color will be pink, so pick whatever dress you would like but it has to be pink.
Please RSVP by July 31st.
I jumped for joy then I realized that it was July 30th so I sent a reply and I booked a ticket to Mystic Falls for August 17th. I re-read the invitation and groaned. Elena's work I'm guessing because Stefan would not make me hang around Tyler if I didn't want to. But Elena, she would defiantly do that.
Now you may be wondering by now why I am telling you my story. But I have to tell it to someone, because everyone I know already knows it. And you all need to know what grief and suffering is. I cannot tell you how my story ends, but I can tell you that this story will bring happiness and disloyalty. And if you are still reading this then that just proves that maybe my life is more exciting that I thought.
