“Alright, I’ll do it!” Rachel exclaimed, looking angry at Stefan. “But if I get killed por Veronica’s minions I will come back to haunt you”
“Is that a promise?” Stefan teased. Then he was serious again. “Did you guys hear that?” he asked concerned. Rachel nodded, Jeremy shook his head. Stefan walked towards the bushes, when a swarm of birds flew out of the them.
“Mystery solved” Jeremy said and Stefan shrugged and walked back.
Derek almost let out a sigh of deep relief, but realized just in time that the sound of his breath would give him away. Stefan and Damon believed he was on their side, but in fact he’d been fooling them from the start. It was all part of the plan, including attacking Veronica. He didn’t want to betray his friends, but Veronica was his friend too and they had known each other much longer than he’d known the Salvatores. Sure that meant something to Veronica, too. She would never kill Amber’s boyfriend. She wouldn’t kill Rachel either, but now that Rachel had obviously betrayed them, Veronica might not have a choice.
“I’m so sorry what happened about what happened to you” Rachel said remorseful to Kelsey and Amber.
“It’s not your fault, mom” Kelsey insured her. “Besides, we’ve learned to live with it” she added with a wink.
Derek watched Rachel say goodbye to her daughters and used the emotional moment to get up and hurry back to Veronica, who was expecting a full report.
