"You're a vampire?" I asked, a little breathless.
"Oh, okay," I said. I turned to Damon. "Anything else I should know about? Elena turning into a mermaid, Jeremey turning into a werewolf?"
"No, but everybody's downstairs waiting to see you, Jeremy especially," he said.
"Then why aren't they up here?" I asked. I had been lying in my bed for about two hours, dozing in and out of sleep, and no one came to visit me.
"I told them they couldn't see you yet, because you had to rest," he said.
"But, I'm fine, and you and Caroline are visiting me," I said, confused.
"I don't actually care if they come visit you," he said. "I just wanted to annoy them."
"Of course," I said. Trust Damon to do that.
"How are you Marni?" Caroline asked.
"I'm fine," I said, though my body ached. "What about you? How's being a vampire going for you?"
"It was a little scary at first, but Stefan's helping me," she said.
"Is he making you eat bunnies?" I asked.
"Yes," she said, glaring a little. "Human blood tastes so much better,"
"You're so missing out," Damon said.
Caroline glared at him.
"How are you feeling?" Damon asked me.
"Sore, but hey, I'll live."
I sat up and slowly swung my legs around and placed them on the ground. I stood slowly and grabbed the bedside table for support. Damon was at my side in a flash.
"You okay?" he asked, concern filling his voice.
"I'm fine," I said, holding on to his shoulder. "I just have to get used to it."
I slowly walked forward, and stetched my legs.
I walked downstairs, Damon and Caroline behind me ready to catch me if I fell.
I found Jeremy, Lexi, Stefan and Elena sitting in the parlour.
"Hey guys," I said.
Jeremy got up and came over to me, hugging me tightly but carefully.
"Are you okay? I was so worried about you," he said.
"I'm fine," I said, hugging him back.
"Are you sure?" he asked.
"Yes," I said, trying to reassure him. "I'm fine, just a little sore."
"I swear to god I will kill that stupid little bitch," I heard Lexi mutter.
"Where's Anna and Pearl?" I asked.
"Anna's helping Pearl move into a house just outside of town," Stefan said.
"They're moving out?" Damon asked, hope filling his voice.
"Pearl is, but Anna's still living here," Stefan replied.
"Get my hopes up why don't you,." Damon said, glaring at the wall. "Do you remember the good old days when only three people lived in this house?"
Lexi poked her tounge out at Damon.
I felt a buzz in my pocket.
I checked my phone. I had a new message from Shadow.
Meet me at the end of Old Fell road ASAP. Make sure the others stay there, especially Damon, if they come it'll get to complicated. Something seriously bad is going on.
Okay, I'll be there in soon. I replied,.
Old Fell road was a back road, on the outskirts of Mystic Falls and was surrounded by forrests.
It would probably take an hour to get there on foot, so looks like I'm going by car.
"Stefan, can I borrow your car?" I asked.
"What? Why?" he asked.
"Just getting some fresh air, you know, time to think," I lied. "And I find driving soothing."
"Do you want me to come with you?" Jeremy asked.
"No thanks, I just need some time to myself, but I'll be back later," I said, giving him a big smile. I turned to Stefan. "But I really need your car,"
"Are you sure you want to go out right now? Katherine's still out there," he said.
"Stefan, honestly, I'll be fine," I said.
"Okay, but be careful," he said.
"I will be," I said.
Stefan pulled his keys out of his pocket and threw them to me.
I caught them and headed for the door.
"I'll be back soon," I said.
I closed the door and looked up at the sky. It was cloudy and it looked like it was going to rain.
A cold breeze whipped my hair around my face and I got goosebumps. And that's when I realised I forgot to put shoes on.
Not wanting to make myself look like an idiot to the others, I walked around the house until I was standing underneath my window. I flexed my hands and I shot up in the air. My window was already open and I climbed through, careful so I didn't stretch any of my wounds.
