The Pierce Sisters

By theresa82

Romance / Action

New Friend

Sometimes, Elena was okay with being a vampire. She had been one for almost 150 years and she had survived quite a lot in that time. But other times, all she wanted was to be human. That's why she came back. Mystic Falls was where she had lived as a human before all of this, and it was where she was going to do it now. She was determined. She was going to make friends. She was going to go to classes. And she was going to be as human as she possibly could.

At least, that was what she was planning on doing. What actually happened turned out to be a very different story.


Stefan ran down the stairs and out the front door, grabbing an apple on the way out.

"Have fun in school brother." Damon called from the living room.

"Oh, I will." Stefan replied, knowing just how to respond to his older brother's mocking. He walked down the front steps and jumped into his brother's blue 69' camaro. He knew his brother hated it when he took his car, but it was the only ride he had to school, and he knew Damon could walk to both the mechanic shop, where he worked, and the Mystic Grill without to much of a problem.

Stefan drove to school and parked the car, preparing himself for the first school day of the year. It was his junior year. He only had to make it two more years and then he was free. Getting out of the car he noticed his friends standing around and jogged over to join them.

Matt patted him on the shoulder. "Hey man, how are you doing?"

Stefan smiled, "Great, how about you?"

"I'm good. I got a job at the Grill this summer and Jeremy here," Matt nudged Jeremy in the arm, "got an offer from a publishing company for an internship as a cover artist."

Stefan turned to Jeremy, impressed. "Really? Nice. And you're only a little sophomore."

"Hey! I'm only one year younger then you guys." Jeremy defended himself against Stefan's teasing.

The bell rang, letting the boys know they only had a few more minutes to get to class. They headed inside.

Stefan sat down in his first class next to Matt. Caroline walked in and surveyed the room. She spotted Tyler and sat down behind her long time boyfriend, throwing a quick glance in the direction of Matt. Much to Matt's dismay, this glance wasn't quick enough and Stefan noticed. "What's that about?" he asked his friend.

Matt shrugged his shoulders, trying to play it off. "Nothing."

"That wasn't nothing, she glanced at you while sitting down next to her boyfriend."

"It was just a glance, Stefan, nothing more."

Stefan knew there was something Matt wasn't telling him, but he decided not to push it.

As the majority of the class settled into their seats, a new girl walked in. She had straight coffee colored hair, and was more beautiful than anyone else Stefan had ever seen. He quickly realized he was staring and looked away, but the damage had been done.

"What was that?" Matt asked. "Love at first sight?" Matt wiggled his eyebrows at Stefan.

"That was nothing. Just like the glance from Caroline was nothing." Stefan had to admit, it wasn't his best comeback, but at least it would mean that Matt couldn't make fun of him without leaving himself open to be made fun of as well.

Matt shook his head. "Okay."

The girl scanned the room, and took a seat towards the front. She had a presence about her. Stefan couldn't put his finger on it, but there was something about the girl that gave off the vibe that she was in control. She was powerful, and not to be messed with.

Stefan's attention was torn away from the girl as the teacher began to talk.


Elena had done it. She had made it through her first day of school at Mystic Falls. She had even managed to make a new friend. Caroline Forbes had been sitting next to her in her first class and had stuck to her for the rest of the day like glue. Caroline was kind, if not a bit talkative and somewhat shallow in her interests, but Elena liked her. She was normal and the fact that she did most of the talking for the both of them meant that Elena didn't have to answer to many questions she didn't really have an answer for.

She pulled her car up to the foreclosure that she had found at the edge of town and walked inside, putting her bag down on the kitchen table.

She didn't notice the second vampire standing in the corner, watching her as she pulled out a blood bag from the fridge.

The vampire in the corner smirked and laughed quietly to herself. This was going to be so much fun.
