I looked up at the passing sign. 'Welcome to Mystic falls' my home, at least it used to be my home. Up until my parents died; a fatal car accident that killed them and saved my sister. My identical twin sister to be exact. The sign filled me with dread but also with a sense of comfort. I left my home town because i couldn't deal with the grief and the pity stares that i got when i walked outside. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel better. That's the problem with small towns everyone knows everyone and when something happens they gossip about it and whisper behind your back. I hate that. Your business should stay your business.
I pressed one of the buttons on the panel of the car down and the window slowly started to come down. The wind immediately ran in to the car and blew my brunette waves around my face. In a few minutes I'd be home I'd get to see my sister, my brother and my aunt again. I turned in my seat to look at the driver. Brown short curly hair and gorgeous blue eyes there was no doubt he is hot. If i was just a few years older but that would be kind of weird since I've dated his nephew and he used to baby sit me as a kid. Oh well one can dream. "So why are you going back to Mystic falls Mason?" I asked. "When you left you said you were never going to go back."
He turned his eyes off the road to gaze at me for a moment. "My brother died." He whispered.
"Mayor Lockwood died?" I gasped shocked. "How?"
He returned his eyes back to the road. "A fire, the wiring in your family's old building caught fire and he was inside."
"I'm sorry i didn't know."
He shrugged. "So why are you back? I didn't even know you'd left until i saw you."
"I left after my parents death and I'm on my way back because i got tired of running, i missed my family, I've been gone a year so i figured it was time to come home."
"Well home we are." Mason said as the car rolled to a stop just outside the Lockwood mansion which was buzzing with people. "It's a wake." Mason explained as he stepped out of the car slamming the door behind him.
"Well, well, well the black sheep returns." Called a very familiar voice.
A smile spread across my face as i stepped out the car. "Make that two black sheep." I smirked.
He looked at me confused for a moment. "Elena, what are you doing with Mason?"
"I'll give you a clue I'm not Elena."
A grin spread across his face and his eyes lit up. "Danielle?" He asked shocked.
"The one and only." I laughed but when he didn't make any sort of movement i frowned. "Are you just gonna stand there or are you going to give me a hug?"
He mentally shook himself then ran over to me and pulled me in to a hug. "It's good to see you." He whispered.
"It's good to see you too, and I'm sorry about your dad."
"Thanks you can go on inside Bonnie and Elena are already inside."
"Okay thanks, I'll see you later. Thanks for the ride Mason."
"Any time." He smiled.
I gave a quick wave before i made my way inside. It hadn't changed but then again I'd only been gone a year. I walked around for a while trying to search for my sister but i gave up as my efforts turned futile. So instead i walked over to the side of the house and gazed out the window. "Hello." I turned to the right to see a man beside me. He had raven black hair and ice blue eyes, there was no doubt he was gorgeous.
