Welcome to Mystic Falls

Chapter 1

A Secluded Mansion in Northern New York

I smiled and took a sip of my whiskey. I walked down the stairs and into the library. My smile widened and I shook my head slightly. I downed the rest of my whiskey, set my glass down, and threw my arms around my best friend. He smiled at me and wrapped his arms around me tightly. I pulled away and slapped him across the face. He stumbled back and I folded my arms.

“What’s that for?” he cried.

“You were supposed to take me out dancing,” I said.

“I’m sorry I was a bit busy daggered in a box,” he cried.

“Is that supposed to be an excuse?” I asked.

“Well yes,” he said.

“It isn’t,” I snapped. I picked up my glass and poured myself some more whiskey.

“Still an alcoholic?” he asked.

“Still an ass?” I asked. He smirked and I poured him a glass of blood and whiskey. He took the glass and I sat down on the floor. My friend leaned back and settled into the couch.

“How long have you been out?” I asked.

“A few days,” he said.

“A few days? And your only just now coming to me,” I said.

“I had some nasty business to take care of with my mother. She tried to kill us all,” he said.

“Again?” I asked.

“Yes it was god awful,” he said.

“So are all your siblings back?” I asked.

“Yes, we all had to be undaggered,” said my friend. I smiled and shook my head. I took a sip of my whiskey and looked at him with sparkling eyes.

“So tell me where is Mikaelson homebase now?” I asked.

“Mystic Falls a rather unfortunate town,” he said.

“A hotbed for the supernatural I hear,” I said. He looked at me and a wicked smile spread over his face.

“Am I sensing a scheme?” he asked.

“You’ve been stuck in that box for far too long-I think it’s time we had a little fun,” I said. A smile spread over my friends face and he pulled out his keys.

“Whenever you’re ready, sweetheart,” he said. I smiled at him and drank the last of my whiskey. I stood up and he held the door open for me. He smiled down at me and I chuckled lightly.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Jessie: I wrote a review on fanfiction but I thought it would be fitting to write on on here too :) This story was honestly stunning. I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

LesAnne: The blurb alone got me hooked. The story is intriguing and evocative. Despite the few typos, the writing style is effective and unique. Though I disliked stories that jump back and forth, this one I didn't mind. I even found myself looking forward to those 'moments'. I like Grace, her character ...
