"Right now he has an idea of you being his missing piece but does not know it for certain. And even if he did it appears he is drawn and truly becoming attached. So that will detour him from trying to complete anything for a little while..so you have a little time. But if he is to find out and cannot get another, I fear Niklaus being as selfish and used to getting his way as he is.. He will kill you to complete his mission.." Elijah said, keeping her gaze.
For a few moments, the man was silent and then slowly and gently touched her shoulder and gave it a squeeze. "I'm sorry for all of this and for you having to find out this way. But for you not to know would be unfair... And I will have to make you forget in a sense about this..at least when around my brother." He said slowly and quietly as dark gaze locked on her.
[#be5cf5 "The night you took me home...that was why it seemed so much time was missing.."] Teagan said quietly as her brown eyes were still locked with his. Somehow she had a feeling he was going to do it again. Why else would he have taken the trouble to explain?
[#be5cf5 "What are we going to do? The party is in an hour..."] Those words slipped her lips and she finally pulled her gaze from his. What was going to happen now that she and Madi knew?
Sitting back down she was not sure what to do. There were so many things running through her head, the explanation was just not cutting it for her.
"So, he's incomplete then," Madison said softly. That had always felt the case, and one of the few that understood her. "Okay, vampires, werewolves, hybrids. And if he finds out, what happens?"
She hated to ask but she just had to ask.
"There's much more. We should join Elijah. He happens to be a lot older than Damon and I..." Stefan said before looking her in her eyes. "I, we, can compel thoughts. I did that. So that if Klaus or anyone could not be invited in...another thing."
There was an hour before the party and to appear as normal as possible was neccesary.
His words he could see were A LOT for the girl to take in. And when she had said she had slept with Klaus, somethow that had not surprised him. His brother did like to have his way and Elijah had seen how taken with this girl Nik seemed to be.
"Yes, what Niklaus is cooking up has something to do with you. He has been trying to break this curse.. or rather seal upon him for many years. Most the 'pieces' he has to his puzzle but one." Elijah muttered. God he did feel bad for this but he was not generally one for sugarcoating things when they were of great importance and needed to be known.
The girl gave a pained smile when she had been told not to say anything. [#be5cf5 "I may have already done that.. When he took me to the Boarding House the day we all played pool. I had been looking at the old photo on the wall by the door before entering the parlour...and well..."]
Her eyes then locked with his when his hands had gone to her shoulders. [#be5cf5 "I get it. Not something you're proud of and well if it gets out there will be another 'hunt'.. But thanks for telling me now.."] Scared, she was still scared but for some reason she trusted him.
"My brother and I are the Salvatores from the original family members. I wouldn't say anything to Damon about that. It was not easy for us before or after changing," Stefan said and placed a hand on hers. "I'm sorry I did not tell you. It's something we keep under wraps."
It was just a matter of Klaus and the discovery. He wanted to keep her safe. "We never meant any harm, even Damon...and hes' well, Damon."
"Werewolves, too? And he's both...and I slept with him..." She stood up beginning to pace a little. Looking to him she listened to him barely piecing it together and then it finally clicked.
"Holy shit...you don't mean what he's cooking up has something to do with me?" She asked the force hitting her like a brick wall. God, what had she done to deserve this?
"Yes, Niklaus and I are both vampires. But he is more than that. The reason he came here to Mystic Falls is he has been working for a very long time to break a curse on him. One that bound his werewolf part." Elijah went on to explain. Since he had already told her so much, the man thought it wise to let her know all of it.
He could not imagine how much it was truly to take in. But from the l9ok within her eyes, the Original knew she was fearful. Wise if he was to be honest. Only a fool would not be afraid of all of this.
"So now you know the truth of this. What we are and what his intentions happen to be."
Her heart was still fluttering and her mind reeling. How did one really come to terms with the fact that everything they had been taught a myth was in fact true. But she had to day something. He was obviously feeling awkward about this.
[#be5cf5 "I mean...this really isn't normal.. Scary...but could be worse. Then when you were helping me with the drawings you were telling me the true fashion of the times..but then..."] But she snapped her mouth shut. Tea had wanted to ask why he still felt familiar and why she was drawn in. But she couldn't.
Madison followed after Elijah, though she was actually considering just running away. Any appetite she had was gone and now she just looked to Elijah.
"So...you're a vampire...which means he is, right?" Madison asked gulping as she looked to him. Fear was understandable at least she thought so at least.
Stefan placed both hands on her shoulder before moving her to the side.
"It's completely true, it always has been from the very beginning," Stefan sighed before smiling to her. "I know, this is a terrible way to find out. I mean...It's not the worse way but it's pretty bad."
He didn't know what else to say, considering he didn't have incidents like this often.
Teagan was finally able to pull her gaze from those who were dead and dark gaze had fallen on Stefan, Elijah, and Damon before the man had whined and flashed off. This was like some horror nightmare but the sad part was she knew they weren't dreaming.
[#be5cf5 "So...this would mean the town legends and stories...they were..all true...?"] The girl asked, her bottom lip between her teeth as she once more looked to the dead before them.
"Do NOT make this any harder or more messy than it needs to be. You were here before either of us and so you know all who did see." Elijah muttered after Stefan had given the job of hunting down those who saw to Damon. Even the Original thought it best for him and Stefan to deal with the girls.
"I'll explain to Madison and you can her friend. It would be easier." Elijah said as he moved to Madison in a human speed as if the flashing had never happened. Slowly he led the girl to a nearby bench and began to explain.
Was this actually happening? Madison stared wondering if there was a prank but those people looked really dead.
"This isn't a joke, is it?" Madison asked stepping to the bodies. Horrified knowing that looked real, and one of them was her regular gossiper in her section. Dead. "Oh, poor Mrs. Bryant..."
She looked to Elijah confused.
"What's going on? She asked again as Stefan stepped forward. "Damon, please go and get those who saw. Don't scare them too much. This might be more delicate than you can handle."
"I never get to do the fun parts," Damon said before flashing off.
The veins by the eyes and the hungry looks had the girl freeze in horror. She knew what she had read, but those had been the old town legends and history. There was no way it was...But as that thought was making it's way into her head there was a quick flash passed her and Madison. And with it came the snapping of necks and Damon's voice, whining.
Another flash behind them and a man in a suit had snapped two other necks and moved to Damon as he was fixing his cuffs. His dark gaze went to the two girls and he offered a faint nod of his head.
"It appears that word has gotten out. They certaintly do have the numbers but we have the advantage in age." Elijah said to the Salvatores. He then let his gaze fall on the two girls again.
"Well since they have seen this and they are involved I think they have the right to know. Don't you?"
"Oh, and Damon, be good nothing outrageous," Stefan sad before leading her aside and sat down. There was still the rest of the people enjoying the food and entertainment. "That is difficult to explain. Vampires basically but I won't hurt you. Do you want me to have you forget?"
It was difficult to explain and then he was not sure what to say from there. It was not often that it was this obvious and he had to explain.
Madison looked to him and back to the people. They weren't moving yet and looked quite dead. SHe only grasped a little of it before piecing it together.
"I don't want a membership," she said shaking her head.
"I guess I need to chase down those people and tell them all that this is. What's in the Mystic Falls handbook, Stefan?" Damon asked wiping his hand off on his jacket.
"Gas leak," Stefan answered looking to the girls he gave a sigh. "I'll take care of Teagan."
This probably was for a reason, even he knew to have someone who knew and even Madison. Damon was thinking on that, it seemed, too. Too bad Klaus was here.
"This is a really bad joke, right? Like one of those college camera pranks?" Madison asked looking at the bodies and them puzzled.
It took a day for her to say yes, she did though, feeling as if she really really wanted to. And the dress was probably the most expensive, beautiful thing she'd ever wear.
She had fun the whole day with the kids and games. It was extremely hot to be wearing that thick costume but seeing the kids have fun made it worth it.
Madison froze in confusion, her first thought had been that this was a joke.
"Um...run?" She said not understanding the veins by the eyes.
There was a flash and snaping of necks and one there was even a heart.
"I was just getting a good drunk on...seriously..." Damon complained. "They keep coming in."
The next couple of days were even crazy than the last week had been. So much to do and so many meetings in trying to make sure it was all perfect and the way Mrs.Lockwood expected it to go. Annoying really, but it wasn't like they had much choice as the woman always got what she wanted.
[#be5cf5 "I can't wait to get out of these costumes. I mean I love dressing up as much as the next person but god...at least we can change and go to the party next, ri--.."] But her words were cut short by a small crowd racing towards her and Madi. It looked like they were trying to get away from something.
She probably knew better. But her curiosity had spiked and instead of running away like a normal person would have, Teagan began to push her way through to where they had been running from, freezing at seeing a couple bodies bloodied and on the ground and a couple of men and women soaked with blood. And as soon as the involuntary scream slipped the girl's lips all heads snapped up and an animalistic look to their eyes.
"Seriously? Do I need to remind you about what you did for senior prom? I don't think those guys will. Stefan seems pretty cool, he should be okay, I mean it might be a little awkward," she said running a hand over the painting. Wiping a single tear of joy from the corner of her eye she smiled.
"That's a joke, right?" She asked before smiling lightly. "I told him this in the art museum, and he remembered. God...that's amazing,,,..."
She said before going to the other box and opening it to find an amazing dress. "Oh Jesus...He's...what do I say?"
[#be5cf5 "I think my having the night with Damon hurt him somehow.. but he was really cool about it..which in its way I think hurt more. So..maybe staying away from both brothers is the answer."] Tea was actually being serious for once when she spoke her words.
With the smirk that Madi gave, the girl's head tilted. It seemed that she had been taken with her "Brit". [#be5cf5 "Oh god! That is so awkward! Buuut was the brother at least cute? Did you try and flirt?"] The girl asked as she was getting back to her "normal" self.
Brown eyes then went to the bigger package that was opened and she could not help her jaw dropping. The painting was just beautiful. And SO much like things she had heard the other girl talk about. How??
