I am near one fourth of the way through the book, so I still have about 400 more pages to go; however, I’ll update you all on what has happened so far. There was a school dance which Elena was playing on winning Stefan over at this dance. I do feel like this was a little selfish because she told Matt to make sure he came, which Matt is her ex who is still in love with her. Matt would give anything to make sure Elena stays safe and is always happy. He just cannot say no to her.
Matt of course convinces Stefan to come to the dance; however, Stefan had already made plans to go with someone else leaving Elena embarrassed. In a way to get back at Stefan for ripping her heart apart, Elena creates a bubble of happiness and worry-free around her. She laughs and flirts with every guy that stumbles in to her path; this is until Tyler prances into her path and invites her and others on a trip to the graveyard.
Just two days ago a man was almost attacked and killed in that same graveyard that Tyler is insisting they come to with him. Even with a churn in her stomach, she still says yes. Before her friends could get to her, they speed down the road to the graveyard. After a while of being there Elena decides she is ready to go home. Tyler claims that he is going to take her home, but he just has to show her one of the statues there. instead of keeping his words true, Tyler forces himself onto Elena; she continuously tries to slip her way out by pushing him and even biting his hand.
Stefan senses something is wrong and runs faster then his power has ever let him. This uses all of his energy causing him to feel lightheaded; however, he knew no matter how much he wanted to stay away from her he had to save her and be there for Elena. He shoves Tyler off but a little to hard causing him to fly into the statue. This scared Elena to death as she was unsure what to do. She yelled at him to stopped;however he couldn’t control it. He would say one thing about treating a girl right then slam his fist against Tyler’s face once again. Elena felt scared but safe being near Stefan at the same time. She stood there in shock for a second before she finally took him up on his offer to take her home.
