"Hurry up, Riley. You're gonna miss your plane." My brother, Steven, tells me as he bangs on my door. "Oh, hush, Steven. I'm trying to put my shoes on." I scoff at him. He sighs dramatically. I roll my eyes and open my door as soon as I got my converse on. "About dang time, Riles." I roll my eyes again and brush past him. "Uh, your suitcases?" He asks. "It's already waiting by the door. You're a little late for that, don't you think." I smile even though I have my back to him. "Whatever." He mumbles. Grabbing my suitcases and my keys, I head out the door and to my 67 black Chevy Impala. "Yo, Riley." Steven calls, "Pop the trunk." I set go around to the back and open the trunk. I set my suitcases in and my brother follows after. When he's done, I shut and lock the trunk. Steven sighs and hugs me. As I hug him back, he kisses my forehead. "I'm gonna miss you." He tells me. "I'm gonna miss you too. I should get going. "I say, stepping back from him. "Yeah, you should. Bye, sis." Steven says, heading back into the house. "Bye, bro." I whisper when he's in the house. I get in my car and pull out of the driveway. Now, my new life starts.
Getting on the plane was easy enough, finding my seat wasn't. I couldn't find it. A flight attendant showed me to my seat. "Here you go. " She tells me politely. I smile and thank her. She smiles back. Yay! I think to myself, A window seat! I smile to myself and look out the window. "Do you know when the plane lifts off?" I jump slightly in my seat and turn to look at the person next to me. "I-uh.." I start to say and then I look down at my phone, " Should be in a few minutes." I look back up at him. "Great. Did I startle you?" He says with a small smile. I nod slightly, "Sort of. I didn't see you or hear you. So I guess, you did." I smile lightly. He nods. "I'm Stefan and this, "He waves to the person in the seat next to him, "is Damon, my brother." I nod and turn my head back to look back out the window. I can't help but hear them whispering. "Why would you leave Elena there with Catherine, Damon?" Stefan asks his brother. "Because, even though we can't trust her, doesn't mean I can't come and save you." Damon whispers back. Stefan sighs. "I could have saved myself. Why are we on a plane?" I look away from the window and at the boys. Damon moves his eyes to look at me. I feel my face get hot. I arch my brow at him and he moves his eyes back to his brother. "You know Catherine?" I ask them. Stefan turns around and looks at me. I smile and continue, " She came and visited me saying that I had to come to Mystic Falls. I don't know why I am here though but I am. I'm pretty sure I said no though. One minute, she was telling me to come to Mystic Falls and next minute, she was gone." I take a breath after saying all of that. They both looked at me curiously. I wave my hand in front of their faces and Damon grabs my wrist. I shoot him a glare. "Don't ever do that." Damon tells me in all seriousness. I roll my eyes and yank my hand back from his grasp. "Well, don't just sit there and stare at me. It's not cool. It is actually kind of rude." I say with attitude. "Well maybe you-" Damon starts but he gets cut off by Stefan. " Not today, Damon." He warns his brother. Damon rolls his eyes, " Fine. I'm going to take a nap then." We both nod at Damon. I look back at Stefan, " I'm sorry if it seems weird that I am talking to you about Catherine right out of the blue. But I heard you guys mention her so I just got curious." He nods, "No, no. It's fine. Now that I know that you know have met Catherine or you know who she is, I was wondering if she would remember you." I nod, "Yeah. And if we discuss this any further, I'd say, why don't we enjoy the peace a quiet away from her til we get there." He gives a light laugh, "Sure, sure." I smile and fall asleep against the window.
