|It was dark. Two cars were racing on the high way. Drivers were two teenagers. Other cars on the highway were honking, but racers were laughing. Suddenly the signboard read "Mystic Falls".
Sue was at home at the time. She took her purse and spoke to her father.
Sue: "Dad, I'm leaving."
Aiden: "Alright, be careful."
Sue: "I will."
By the time the racers had arrived to Mystic Falls. Seeing the streets were empty, they'd started racing even faster.
Sue was in the car, about to start it. She was talking to someone with the speaker
Girl on speaker: "Where are you? Game's about to start!"
Sue: "I'm sorry, I just needed to.. I'm on my way."
Girl: "Just hurry."
The racer at the behind was trying to pass the other, but the other racer wouldn't let him. He kept checking the mirrors, and kept blocking the racer with his car. The racer at the back eventually yelled with some kind of anger.
Racer: "Come on!"
Meanwhile Sue had reached the main road. She drove her car into the road, but as she was changing the radio station, she took her eyes off the road for a split second.
That is when the leading racer saw that there was a car (Sue's car) in his way. But before he could even move to break, he crashed Sue's car with all it's speed. Sue's car took a few spins before finally stopping. And with the impact the racer lost control and crashed into a tree in someone's garden.
Sue raised her head in terrible pain. Her face was covered in blood, and she was crying. As she kept bleeding, suddenly the headlights of other car caught her eyes. Last thing she saw was them coming at her with an incredible speed. All she could do was scream in horror and despair.
The racer tried to break, but he was too fast. Car's tires screeched, but the impact was still big enough to explode both cars instantly.
Sheriff, hearing the noises, ran out of the house, only to see the growing flames from the cars. He desperately started running to the scene while yelling Sue's name. Alice was running too, while crying and yelling.
Stephan: "What was that(?)!"
Tyler ran out of the cave and looked at the direction the sound of explosion came from. In curiosity, he headed there.
Coach Lyman entered the changing room. Matt, who was near Stefan at the time, went to his locker and listened to coach's tactic while changing his top. Then players started running to the field. Matt went near coach. Coach saw him.
Matt: "Coach, I'm aware this is not the perfect time to ask this but, what would you think about having a co-coach?"
Lyman: "Why would I need a co-coach?"
Matt: "It's actually I need a new job. My boss at grill has some beef with me, I don't know. I fear one of these days he's just gonna fire me, so I'm kind of looking for something else."
Lyman: (smiled) "You're a good player, Donovan. And as much as I know you'd do just fine here, you're not old enough to leave the field yet."
Matt: "Well playing at school team doesn't exactly have a paycheck."
Lyman: "Then go professional. I know a few managers I could hook you up with."
Matt: (cheered up a little) "You'd do that for me?"
Lyman: "It's not like I can keep you. You're graduating. And I'd hate to see a talent like yours wasted at bar tables." (Matt laughed happily upon this) "We'll talk more after match. Now get out there."
Matt: "Yes, coach!"
He started running to the field near his teammates. Before he arrived, he quickly checked the cheerleaders to see if Sue is among them. When he didn't see her, he curiously looked around looking for her, but then returned to the match.
Soon after the match started, Elena, Caroline, Bonnie and Antonio came and sat behind Damon and June.
Elena: What did we miss?"
Damon: "Just a boring start."
June: "Don't listen to him."
Then cops showed up. As their number was higher than usual, gang looked at each other and around in confusion.
Elena: "That's odd."
One of the cops headed near Coach Lyman and said something to him. Caroline pointed them.
Caroline: (to Elena) "Can you hear them?"
Elena: (tried to hear them for a while, then shook her head) "No, there's too much noise."
As the cop waited, Lyman called Matt to the bench and put Stefan into the game. No one understood this substitution as it was too soon in the game. Matt and Stefan looked at each other as they are walking towards each other. Stefan's disturbed face bugged Matt terribly, he started looking around nervously. Sue still wasn't among the cheerleaders, and Elena and others were leaving in a rush. Then he saw the police near coach. He started panting in fear.
Elena and others finally got out. June was a little ahead of them, still trying to process what she read from the cop she touched.
Caroline: (started getting nervous) "June what is it?"
Damon: "We can't exactly read your mind, June. What happened?"
June finally turned to them
June: "It's Sue. She died."
At the same time, near the field, Matt felt like loosing his balance. In need of something to hold on to, he moved his arm randomly and grabbed the pole.
Cop: "There was an accident. It was two road racers from Atlanta."
June: "It was right outside her home. No one survived."
The gang was shocked. Matt wasn't able to react, but he was devastated.
Caroline: I can't believe this happened."
Caroline: "Especially on the prom eve."
Bonnie: "Don't you think anything else?"
Caroline: "I've been working for months to make that day a happy day for all of us, so that we could relieve stress of the senior year."
Antonio: "I'm pretty no one's gonna care. She wasn't a senior."
Caroline: "The people that matter to me will. And it's gonna be a bad day for them, so it sucks."
Elena: "I can't imagine what Matt's feeling right now."
They looked at each other encouragingly. But no one was in the mood. After some time, Matt walked out of a room. He was with Sue's parents, identifying Sue. As he was wrecked, her parents were crying their eyes out. Matt walked for a while, and then saw his friends. Suddenly he couldn't hold himself anymore and started crying. Elena ran near him and hugged him. Caroline and Bonnie joined too. Damon arrived and patted his back encouragingly. June and Antonio looked at each other. They were clearly upset too.
Then Matt saw Tyler walking towards them. As much as Bonnie was surprised to see him here, Tyler seemed sad too.
Tyler: "I just got Caroline's text, came here as soon as I could. Matt, I'm really sorry." (they hugged each other. Matt was now crying even more) "If there's anything I can do, please, tell me."
Matt: "I'm just glad you're here, Ty!"
At that moment Tyler saw Bonnie looking at him. Her eyes were almost saying "What the hell". He made a subtle move with his head and eyes, indicating he had to do this.
Bonnie: (while checking a dress in front of a mirror) "I'm thinking maybe I should skip. I never saw Matt like that, even when his sister died."
Caroline: "We're not skipping. While I admit what happened is a total mood killer, this is the one prom we'll ever have. We're all going."
Bonnie: "I just don't feel like it. And something tell me neither does Matt."
Elena: "He was a total mess when Caroline and I left him home."
Bonnie: "What do you think her parents are going through right now?"
Elena: "I can only imagine they're worse than Matt."
Bonnie: "She didn't have to die. We heard what June said. Two pubescents who were having fun with their fancy cars. Couldn't they just have crashed to a wall, or a parking car; why Sue!?"
Elena: "I just know one thing. This is not the night that I've waited for the whole year."
Caroline: "You're not wrong."
Elena: "I mean, how are we supposed to have fun when our friend is suffering like that. How do we live with ourselves if we did?"
Bonnie: "Matt always wanted to leave. And honestly I don't know why he stayed."
Caroline: "Because this is his home."
Bonnie: "His home which cost him a sister, good friends. And now a girlfriend. He doesn't deserve a life like this. He should have left, like Jeremy did." (looked back at the mirror) "We all should have."
Elena looked down at her dress.
Elena: "I'm not in the mood for shopping." (shows the dress to Caroline) "You think this'll do?"
Caroline sighed. But she knew they all felt the same way. She nodded slowly.
Stefan: (startled at first, but eased when he saw it's David) "What's with the rush?"
David: "Is that your motto or something, do you all like to take things slow?"
Stefan: "What're you talking about?"
David: "I'm talking about angels. Half bloods. Why haven't they arrived yet?"
Stefan: "Maybe they just don't feel like walking into a trap."
David: "A tr.. Oh for the love of!"
Stefan: "I don't think they trust you."
David: (hissed) "That makes all of us." (took a few steps towards Stefan) "Look, the kitsune is here."
Stefan: (surprised) "Where?"
David: "I don't know. But I knows they're here, because my senses are blinded."
Stefan: "What do you mean blinded?"
David: "I'm unable to sense any species. Only kitsune magic is able to do that."
Stefan: "But Gary was able to sense Peter."
David: "That spell was old."
Stefan: (freaked) "So if this spell is new..."
David: "Means they just arrived."
Damon: "Let me see if I can compel these." (then focused on the dices. In a few seconds, he started blinking) "Nope. I can't."
June: "I'm not sure if you're just trying to be funny or a cheat."
Damon looked at her weirdly. Then the door opened. It was Stefan and David.
Stefan: "We have a problem."
Caroline: "Where'd you get the suit?"
Tyler: "Stole it." (Caroline wasn't expecting this, so her face changed. He laughed softly) "Kidding. I went home this morning."
Caroline: "Wow. So you saw your mom?"
Tyler: "Not exactly. She was out to see Carsons. To give them her condolences." (Caroline exhaled with discomfort upon this) "It's not like I'm dodging her."
Caroline: "Yes you are, I just don't know why."
Tyler: (nervously took a breath) "Thing is, she thinks I left town for good. And I don't wanna get her hopes up about my stay. Because I'm not staying. I only came to help you guys out with your angel problem."
Caroline: (angrily) "Well then you can leave, because our angel problem is over."
Tyler: "But now you have a kitsune problem."
Caroline: (turned to him and yelled) "This is Mystic Falls! We'll always have a problem!" (then calmed down and spoke sadly) "And I'm tired. I'm tired of fighting all the time. I'm tired of living in danger. I'm tired of everything. It's why I wanted to leave."
Tyler: "You wanted to stay, Caroline."
Caroline: "I know." (looked aside) "Not anymore." (Tyler looked at her curiously) "When I gave your necklace to Bonnie, I wanted her to find you. And wherever you were, I was gonna come to you."
Tyler: "Are you serious?"
Tyler: "Let me be clear. I'm talking about leaving Mystic Falls forever. Leaving this place behind for good. Because that's what I'm gonna do. If you're in for that.."
Caroline: (interrupted him) "I'm in!"
Tyler smiled happily and went near her. Then gently held her cheeks.
Tyler: "Then we leave. Maybe not tonight, or this week. We help our friends. We help them survive this. And after that.."
Caroline: "We don't look back!"
Tyler: (smiled) "Yeah."
They kissed, then hugged each other with love.
Antonio: "I just wanted to say; I'm sorry."
Bonnie: "For what?"
Antonio: "For putting you in trouble."
Bonnie: "You didn't put me in any trouble."
Antonio: "Well, I did force you to tell me something, without knowing, correction: caring, whether you're ready to tell me about it or not."
Bonnie: (smiled) "Ah, that."
Antonio: "Yeah. That.
Bonnie: "Well, it was gonna happen eventually. It's not like I could keep it a secret from you my all life."
Antonio: (smiled naughtily) "All(?) life?"
Upon this she smiled. They continued dancing. Little away from them, Stefan and Elena were dancing.
Stefan: "I noticed you didn't ask about June today."
Elena: "Well, Damon manages to cheer her up. And if you ask me, we could all use a little bit of that."
Stefan: "Does that mean you wanna spend time with Damon?"
Elena: (laughed briefly) "No. But this morning when she asked to spend the day with Damon, I wasn't surprised."
Stefan: "Hmm. She looks up to him."
Elena: "Honestly, that's exactly what I'm afraid of."
Caroline: (with a soft voice) "Hey?"
Tyler: (looked at her) "Hm?"
Caroline: "Come back to Earth?"
Tyler: (smiled) "Sorry, I was just.. thinking about something?"
Tyler: "About what might be the best place to go."
Caroline: "Well, the world is ours."
Tyler: "I mean for a wedding."
Caroline: (laughed) "That was beyond your usual pace."
Tyler: "I know. But even human life is too long to spend alone, we're talking about eternity. I've spent a th.. eighteen years on this planet. And the weakest I've ever felt was the time I spent away from you." (they looked into each others' eyes) "And I don't wanna feel that weak again."
Caroline: (held his cheek) "You never will."
They moved to kiss each other. But just as they were about to, they both stepped back because of a noise they heard (with their vampire hearing) from the entrance. It sounded like Matt was violently discussing with the security at the entrance.
Caroline: "Is that..?"
They quickly headed to the entrance. Indeed it was Matt, dressed terribly and he was like a mess.
Security: "Sir, I can't let you in without an ID."
Matt: "I'm the captain of school's football team!"
Security: "That doesn't make you a senior. And you are severely underdressed for this event."
Matt: "Underdressed, huh?" (teared his t-shirt in anger) "How about now?"
Security: "Go home and get your ID. Or you're not getting in."
Matt: "Let me in right now or I'll beat you."
Security: (pushed him) "Get outta here!"
Enraged, Matt attacked him. But before he could land his punch, Tyler showed up and held him back.
Matt: "Let me go!"
Tyler: "Hey hey HEY!" (Matt stopped, but he was still angry. Tyler turned to the security and compelled him) "You know the senior Matt Donovan? You're letting him in."
Security numbly looked at them for a while, then stepped aside. As they entered, Caroline walked to them.
Caroline: "Matt, wha.."
Matt: "Where's Bonnie? I wanna talk to Bonnie."
Tyler: "Alright mate, just wait here, I'll bring her."
Matt: (held his shoulder and pushed himself forward) "Don't bother."
Tyler and Caroline looked at each other in confusion as Matt walked into the prom hall. Some couples were noticing him and looking weirdly, some were ignoring him and some were not even noticing him. He eventually saw her and Antonio. As Antonio was turned to him, he noticed him first. His torn dress and disastrous look apparently shocked him.
Antonio: "What in god's!.."
His shocked look forced Bonnie to look as well. By the time she turned, Matt had arrived.
Matt: "We need to talk!"
Bonnie nodded. Then Matt held her hand and dragged her out of the hall. Antonio, in confusion, went to Stefan and Elena. They noticed him coming near them and stopped dancing.
Antonio: (when he came close) "Something's going on. Matt just took Bonnie. Maybe you guys should check in on them."
After he said it, they looked around to see them. Elena saw them just before they got out from one of the doors.
They headed there. On their way out they met Tyler and Caroline. They shook their heads, meaning they have no idea what is happening. They walked and soon arrived to the lockers, which is apparently where Matt took Bonnie. But stopped at the corner and listened. But it seems they only caught the end of their discussion.
Bonnie: "Matt.. Matt, you don't understand, I can't do this!"
Matt: "I know you can do it, Bonnie! You just don't want to!"
Bonnie: "Why wouldn't I want to help you, Matt, you're one of my best friends! But it's me. I'm not strong enough to do that kind of magic! Not by myself!"
Matt: "You would do it if she was someone you loved, wouldn't you! If it was Jeremy, if it was Elena, you'd find a way, wouldn't you!"
Bonnie: "It's not about them!"
Matt: "I know. It's why you won't help."
Matt: "You'd find a way if she was Elena, wouldn't you!"
Matt: (with anger, hit the locker right next to Bonnie. She freaked out. Matt was yelling) "YOU'D FIND A WAY, IF SHE WAS ELENA!!" (Bonnie was almost crying. Matt was trying too hard not to cry too, but he couldn't stop tears from falling down his cheek) "Wouldn't you?"
Bonnie: (looked at Matt with eyes full of tears) "What you're asking, Matt, is not something I can do. You have to believe me!"
Matt: "I don't." (looked down at her) "I'm done with you, you hypocrite, selfish wench!" (Bonnie felt a lump in her throat and looked even sadder. Then Matt saw the others behind Bonnie, at the far side of the corridor) "I'm done with all of you!" (Elena and others were upset too, but no one made a sound) "You can have your town, your problems.. I'm leaving."
He turned his back and walked away while crying. As soon as he left Bonnie, others ran to her. Antonio immediately hugged her. She was breathing deeply because of sadness and shock.
Antonio: "Shh. It's okay. He's gone. I should never have let him near you. I'm sorry."
Elena: "It was nobody's fault."
Antonio: "He was the one that came out of nowhere and ruined our night."
Elena: "He's hurt."
Antonio: "So are we! But it doesn't give us the right to go and yell at people, least of all our childhood friends!"
Rest seemed unsure of how they were feeling, but definitely they were all upset.
Tyler: "Well, at least he's leaving. It was all that he ever wanted."
Caroline: "Can't we just ease his pain or something?"
Stefan: "I don't think we should."
Tyler: "Yeah, he's right. If we ease his pain he'd stay. The more he stays, the more he'll get hurt. We can't do this to him."
They nodded and headed back. But on the way Stefan's phone rang. Damon was calling. He answered.
Damon: "Is everyone with you?"
Stefan: "Uh, yeah(?)."
Damon: "Get them and come here."
Stefan: "Where are you?"
Damon: "Almost home."
Stefan: (ended the call and spoke to others) "It was Damon. He wants us at home."
Elena: "Was it really him? I mean, could someone be.. imitating his voice?"
Stefan: "It was his number."
Elena: "Then if he wanted us all, it should be important."
Bonnie: "You guys go, we'll be right behind you."
Upon this vampires looked at each other for a while, then all disappeared with their super speed.
When they arrived to the boarding house, Stephan and David were just getting out of the house. They looked at each other as a minibus approached and stopped near them. Damon got out from the driver's seat. As everyone were curiously waiting, David and Stephan started smiling happily. Then the front door opened and Natalie got out. Seeing that angels came, gang smiled too. Then the back door opened and Meredith and other half bloods, and finally June got out. David seemed happy that angels were finally back.
Damon went near Natalie and put her arm around her waist. They smiled to each other. Then they looked at David. In fact, everyone were looking at David.
David: "I'm hoping Damon told you what this is all about."
Gary: "He mentioned bits and pieces. We're here to get the whole story."
Damon: "Yeah, we're all locked and loaded. Let's go hunt some foxes!"
