7. Six. The Third Year

Matt and I have been dating a little over a year. Our friends were excited for us. "It's almost like high school." Tyler leaned back on his living room couch. The five of us were at the Lockwood Mansion. Tyler had been living here on his own now, but of course, Caroline had spent a few nights here.

Maybe she was just checking up on how he was doing since he came back to Mystic Falls before college started. "Hey, at least now we can all legally drink." Matt enters with a bottle in his hand. He had brought in some cups for us to drink out as well.

"Red solo cups Matt? We're adults, not high schoolers." Bonnie joked. Matt handed us each a cup and proceeded to pour us drinks. He set the bottle on the coffee table and took his seat beside me. He wrapped an arm around me. Life had never been so good.

Mystic Falls has gotten much quieter now, just like it used to be. There were no signs of animal attacks. Everyone was safe and didn't have to worry about walking around town without thinking someone would suddenly attack them. "There wasn't enough glasses for all of us." said he.

"We're one year away from graduating college. It's so surreal." I spoke up after taking a drink from the cup.

"Says Miss Pre-Med." teased Caroline. I rolled my eyes. I think Caroline wanted to go into Journalism, and maybe become a reporter. I think she'd be really good at it. Actually, she'd be excellent. Tyler could've gone to the Academy with Matt. I could see him being an officer of the law.

Bonnie, I didn't know what she wanted to be. Maybe a psychiatrist? I laughed silently at the thought. Matt and I were the only two normal people. We were both human. Our friends were of the supernatural. Yet, we still acted like their differences from us didn't change that we were all still close.

Jeremy decided to major in art, or something related to that. He was such a talented drawer that Alaric had encouraged him to apply to college. Surprisingly, he was accepted, but I always knew that my brother was smart. He had been keeping his grades up in high school, and I have to thank Alaric for that.

"Who knew that we would all be here together? We've all been through a lot and seen a lot of things not an every day person would." said Bonnie. I nodded in agreement, as well as everyone else. It was crazy to think that way, but it was true.

A lot of us have dealt with certain incidences that have changed our lives forever. In the back of my mind, death was forever eternal. Even though there have been days when I wish I could bring my parents back or my aunt Jenna back, I couldn't. I would give almost anything to see them again.

After a few hours of hanging out with each other, it was time for Matt and I to leave. We bid goodbye to everyone and headed out to his truck. I was still staying in the dorms at Whitmore, but I decided to move in with Matt. I felt that it was about time I left my parents house.

I didn’t mind staying with Alaric. I think it’s just time for me to go down my own path. I remember the day when I moved in with Matt. The first few nights was hard for me to realize that I wasn’t waking up in my own bed. Of course, it did get better afterwards.

Living with Matt wasn’t so bad either, despite our different schedules. Though, we always made time to see each other. One morning when I was making the drive to Whitmore college, I saw the blue Camaro. It wasn’t any one else’s, but his. Why was it parked here?

Getting out of my car as I grab my bag, I entered the college to head to the dorm room. Maybe Caroline or Bonnie noticed the car sitting out in the parking lot. “Elena, you okay?” Caroline had noticed almost immediately that something was wrong.

“Did you uhm… did you guys notice the Camaro sitting outside in the parking lot?” I asked them.

“Yeah, it’s Stefan’s.” replied Bonnie. Stefan’s? Guess by the look I had on my face, I noticed that they both looked at each other. What didn’t I know? What were they keeping from me? I tried to question them, but Caroline spoke up and told me that they had to get to class.

The two of them exited the room. Something wasn’t right here. I shook my head of the thought and headed to class. As soon as I sat in my seat, class had begun. A few short minutes later, I noticed a familiar face enter the room and take a seat a few rows behind me. Stefan. Why is he here?

Should I confront him? I didn’t know. I haven’t spoken to Stefan since his arrival, but he wasn’t living in Mystic Falls. Of all places, why Whitmore? After class, Stefan was rushing towards the door. I had caught him just in time before he left without saying a word. “Stefan.”

I grabbed his arm to stop him. Stefan turned and looked at me. “I can’t talk right now. I have to get to class.”

“Five minutes.” I told him. He stayed silent, but before I could ask him anything else, Caroline approached us. She was followed by Bonnie and Tyler. It was then Caroline and Stefan walked away with one another, leaving me with the other two. “What’s going on?” I asked.

“Well, apparently they’re dating now.” answered Tyler.

“Why didn’t anyone tell me?”

“You were so happy with Matt. Caroline thought that it was weird for her to date your ex while you’re dating hers.” said Bonnie.

“It’s not weird at all. I just want to be kept in the loop, that’s all.” Caroline and Stefan were dating? How long have they been together? The three of us went to our class together. All I kept thinking about was seeing Stefan and that Camaro. Why was he driving his brother’s car?

Did Stefan move back to the boarding house? Or is he staying with Caroline? I didn’t know. I wasn’t able to ask him anything before he walked away with her. The thoughts about Stefan coursed through my mind. Whatever his reason is to be here, I hope it’s a good one.
