I woke up the next morning, alone, which I’ve gotten used to, took a shower, got dressed, and went to see Caroline. The funny thing is, I ran into Stefan as he was headed to her house as well. Caroline then told us both that Tyler knew about Stefan, Damon, and herself. I hugged her tight because I knew that this must be hard for her. Caroline also told us that Tyler also knew that Damon killed Mason, but she didn’t say a word. I felt betrayed by Tyler because he was trusting a woman that he just met instead of his friends. Stefan left to go talk to Tyler, and I stayed with Caroline.
“I can’t believe that he trusts Jules over us.” I said as Caroline drove us to the Memorial.
“I know but maybe Stefan can get through to him.” Caroline said back with a small smile.
After a while of being at the Memorial, Caroline and I decided to head home. Matt caught up to us, so I stood by Caroline’s car till they were done. I’m glad that they are trying to work things out, and I hope it works. Caroline and I were just about to get into the car, when Jules showed up. They argued and then Jules sprayed Caroline with vervain. Then some dude came up and shot her. I ran around to her, but I guess the guy had help because I was grabbed from behind, and knocked out.
I came to and saw that Caroline and I were both in a cage, and I was thankful that we were in the cage together, but Caroline was still out. I waited for her to come to, and when she did, she pushed the bullet out of her head, and tried to get us out. We then saw the guy that shot Caroline, and he kept talking about wooden bullets and other toys.
“I have wooden bullets as well, but I’m afraid that your ass will have to wait on mine.” I growled.
The guy just laughed and shot Caroline again.
“I’m sorry Care.” I whispered.
All of a sudden Jules came in and told the guy that someone needed proof. The guy then shot Caroline again, and I knew that it was Stefan on the phone.
“Stefan!” I yelled before another guy pointed a gun at me and told me that he would kill me if I wasn’t quiet.
I sat back against the cage, and hoped that Stefan would come help us. I was no match for werewolves, but I knew that if I had my gun, I could at least wound them, but my bag is with Caroline’s, which are in her car. The guy kept hurting Caroline, and I felt helpless because I couldn’t help her. I knew that I probably could, but I didn’t know what to do. After a while the guy walked out of the trailer, I finally figured out that we were in a trailer in the middle of the woods. I tried to calm Caroline down, but I didn’t know if it was working.
All of a sudden I heard a whistle and I knew that it couldn’t be good. Tyler then came into the trailer, and stopped when he saw Caroline and I in the cage. Caroline talked Tyler in to getting us out, and when we did, it was a war outside the trailer. Caroline was then grabbed by Jules with a gun pointed at her head, and I was grabbed in a choke hold from behind. Caroline and I both whimpered as we looked at Tyler, but he just stood there, like a deer in headlights. All of a sudden, the wolves dropped to the ground, and Mr. Martin came into the clearing. He told us to go, and that’s exactly what we did.
“Are you ok Ryleigh?” Stefan asked as we walked through the woods.
“I’m ok I guess.” I replied as Caroline and I hugged each other close.
Everyone went their separate ways. Stefan went with Caroline and Damon went with me. I told Damon that I would be fine by myself if he wanted to go home. Damon seemed hesitant at first, but then finally left. I was shocked by that, but I knew that Damon would always be Damon. I took a long shower, and when I was fixing me something to eat, there was a knock at the door. I went to see who it was, and it happened to be Tyler.
“What do you want Tyler?” I asked as I opened the door.
“I just want to talk.” Tyler replied slowly.
“What if I don’t want to talk?” I asked back.
“Look, can I please come in?” Tyler asked, and I knew that if I didn’t at least hear him out, then I might regret it.
I moved aside and let Tyler in. We sat in silence for I don’t know how long before he spoke.
“I’m really sorry about what Jules and them did to you and Caroline, but I had no idea that they were going to do that.” Tyler said as he looked at me.
“I know that you’re sorry Tyler, but the problem is, is that you just stood there while Jules put a gun to Caroline’s head, and some guy grab me and put me in a choke hold.” I said back with anger.
“I don’t know what else you want me to say Ryleigh.” Tyler said back.
I really didn’t know what I wanted Tyler to say. I guess I wanted him to feel what Caroline and I was feeling while we were being held hostage because of Jules being a total bitch.
“I hate to ask this, but did you know what happened to my uncle Mason?” Tyler asked very hesitantly.
“Honestly, yes I did know, but only because I walked in after everything was said and done. I didn’t know that Damon was going to make it seem like Mason was still alive. If it had been me, I would’ve buried him.” I replied truthfully.
Tyler was trying not to get mad, but I could tell that he really wanted to strangle me. I also knew that he was shocked that I knew. Tyler sat there and let my words sink in before he finally said something.
“Thank you for being honest with me. I mean, yes, I am mad that you didn’t tell me, but at least I know that you would’ve been nice enough to bury my uncle, instead of lying to everyone.” Tyler said after he took a few deep breaths.
“You’re very welcome Tyler. Now that, that is out of the way, why don’t we get some sleep.” I said as I headed to the door.
“I don’t want to seem like I’m imposing, but…” Tyler trailed off.
“But… you were wondering if you could stay here incase Jules comes by your place.” I finished for him.
Tyler just nodded his head. I gave him a smile before both of us headed to my room. I know that Damon might see us, but I don’t care because I’m not stupid. I know that he has feelings for Elena. I’m not going to say anything unless something is said to me. I may be a bitch, but I’m a bitch who knows how to keep her mouth shut.
Well, this is goodnight world, and maybe tomorrow will be better than today.
