Stefan and Katherine ran through the woods. Stefan had ditched the car on the edge, because it would be too noisy. Katherine stuck her arm out. “Don’t move” she said, rotating her head from left to right. “There’s someone with us”
And a secondo later Amber appeared in their sight.
“You!” Stefan growled and he wanted to attack her, but Katherine stopped him. “Not now, Stefan. First let’s sicuro, cassetta di sicurezza Elena, then te can kill her”
“How could you?” Stefan detto unbelieving. “I trusted you. I told te my whole life”
“I know” Amber said. “I have listened very carefully, I have kept it in mind, and now I’ve used that information, because I needed it… Thanks again for your endless tales, Stefan”
“Where’s Elena?” Katherine asked. She realized Stefan was too angry to speak.
“Klaus sends me to take te to him. He will bring te to her as soon as he feels like it” she smiled. She took Stefan and Katherine’s arm and brought them to the back of the hotel, where Klaus was waiting for them.
“Well done, Amber, well done” Klaus congratulated the teen vamp. Amber grinned as if Klaus had dato her a lollypop. “Stefan, you’re probably shocked da Amber’s betrayal. I bet you’re eager to hear what her role was in my plan. Yes, Stefan, she’s part of my plan all along, even before te killed her”
The grin on Ambers face vanished and suspicion and a whiff of fear came over her. “What are te talking about?”
“You remember te abducted the Sherriff’s daughter? te thought Amber would just destroy her files and any evidence of her existence, but I compelled her to check on the doppelganger, see if she was really dead” Klaus explained, ignoring Amber. Katherine sneaked away to the backdoor of the hotel. Though Klaus could smell the human blood she had with her he didn’t do anything to stop her.
“I was with her all the time” Stefan detto confused. “When did you?”
“Ah, there were times te were less focused” Klaus said. “Usually when your head was with your human girlfriend”
“Why did te think Elena was still alive?” Stefan asked.
“I’ve been around for a very long time, Stefan. I don’t easily get fooled” Klaus said. “Plus te couldn’t stop talking about her to Amber”
Idiot, Stefan thought, how could te be so reckless?
“On the night I sent te and the Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. on a hunt and I kept Amber here I compelled her to tell me if te were plotting into escaping. Well, te know what the answer was. And I’m sure te understand I was quite unpleased to know that not only the doppelganger was still walking and talking, but te were also going to betray me. So I told Amber to attack Miss Gilbert and bring her to me. I knew it would bring te straight back to me” Klaus ended.
Stefan looked at Amber, trying to understand. She was compelled, she couldn’t help it. But Ambers eyes were hooked on Klaus. “What do te mean I was a part of it before I was killed?” she asked agitated.
“Oh, right, I almost forgot” Klaus said. He looked over his shoulder. “You can bring her in now” He looked at Amber. “I’ve a little surprise for you” He stepped side wards so Amber had a clear view. At first she saw nothing. Then someone came in view. He was dragging someone with him. Amber covered her mouth and her eyes bulged. “Kelsey!”
