Lost And Found Chapter Seven
Stefan Salvatore's POV
As I was hunting for animals. I came across Victoria laying on the ground.
Victoria? I asked cautiously.
She was sitting bait for a vampire to come par and drain her of blood. A unresponsive girl in the forest alone. What plus could an evil vampire ask for?
I picked her up lightly and carried her back to my place. She had been there a while, I hadn't seen her at school for three ou four days. Surely she hadn't been there all that time. With vampires passing through, like Damon. She was bait for him ou someone else.
What are toi doing? Damon asked.
I found Victoria in the woods. I said.
So, toi could have left her their. Damon said.
Sitting bait for some other vampire ou you. I said.
ou whatever she a dit for us to leave her alone. He said.
I know but I am helping her. She doest need to be unresponsice in a forest where there are dangerous monster. I said.
I laid her on the canapé and covered her with a blanket.
What are toi going to do when she wakes up and finds herself in this house, alone with vampires? He asked.
I don't know. Victoria's reaction can't be that bad. I said.
Stefan, she hates us. What are toi exspecting? Someone happy girl? He asked.
No but she can leave as soon as she rest up. I said.
I told toi two to leave me alone! Victoria said.
toi were a sitting canard in the forest. I couldn't leave toi there. I said.
It wouldn't have matter if I was sitting duck. toi should respect my wishes to leave me alone! She growled.
Yahda, yahda, yahda! toi are free to leave to go back home. Damon said.
I can't go back home. She said.
Why not? Damon asked.
Because Dad grabbed his gun and I ran for it. I said.
Why? I asked confused.
He was drunk. How do I know? She said.
Don't toi ever turn the air on in here? She added.
We're vampires. We need heating and cooling. Damon said.
She unzipped her veste a little.
Take off your veste than. Damon smile mishcheifly.
I can't. She mumbled.
Why not? Damon asked.
Because I have bruise on my arms. She mumbled so quite that I almost couldn't hear here.
From what? I asked concerned.
This is why I told toi to leave me alone. She said.
Because toi didn't want us to know so we couldn't make fun of you. Damon said.
No it's not that. It's embarrassing. Victoria said.
Oh well this will be good! Damon chirped.
Shut up! She demanded.
Damon was over in a second. He had her pushed against the couch.
Don't tell me to shut up! I can rip your head off in less than a second. He hissed.
Damon. I sighed in frustration.
Relax, I'm not going to kill her. He said.
I heard Victoria let out a sigh of relief.
He ripped off her veste to reveal numerous bruises on her arms.
That's some secert toi have. Damon mumbled.
How dare you! Victoria cried as she tried to cover her arms with her hands.
The puzzle pieces were coming together. Her drunk father, missing school days, bruises, in the woods; she was being beaten.
Your dad beats you. I mumbled.
Whoa good job captain obvious. I even knew that. Damon said.
Well I didn't think someone could have been so cruel. I said.
toi can't tell anyone. Oh, Damon, toi owe me a new jacket. She a dit bravely.
I don't owe toi anything. He a dit and walked away.
I'll give toi money so toi can get a new jacket. I said.
Thank toi Stefan. She said.
No problem. Tell me one thing though. I said.
Okay. She said.
How come toi were in the woods? I asked.
Dad pulled out a gun last night when he got really drunk. I dot know where ou how he got it. But when he pulled it out, I knew I had to get out there. Victoria said.
toi may stay here but toi need to turn your father in. I said.
I can't do that. He's the only family I have left. I said.
Yes but it's not good if he is beating toi when he gets drunk. I said.
I know. She a dit sadly.
toi can stay here for a little while. But toi need to clear things up with your father. I said.
Oh thank toi Stefan! Victoria chirped as she hugged me.
toi can sleep on the couch. If that's okay. I said.
Oh that's fine! She a dit smiling.
I gag her a oreiller and some blankets. I told her if she needed anything to just call me. I walked out of the room so she could get some sleep.
It hadn't been long when I hear Victoria calling my name.
I walked into the living room and she was curled up on the canapé looking around. She was frighten.
What's wrong? I asked concerned.
Your living room is spooky. I said.
toi can sleep in my room but I don't know how much better it will be. I said.
I-I-I don't want to be a burden but I'm scared. She said
You're not being a burden. You're family. I said.
Famiy. She said.
Come on follow me. I said.
Thank toi for everything. I'm sorry that I am such a baby. She said.
It's fine, it's normal for humans to feel this way. I said.
We entered my room and she was amazed at all the journals I had. I turned the over head light off and turn on my bureau lamp. Victoria got on the lit and started watching me write.
Goodnight Stefan. Thank toi again for everything. She said.
You're welcome. Try and get some good sleep. I said.
She smiled at me and slowly drifted asleep.
