The night is dark in Mystic Falls. It is a cold winter night where nobody seems to be out, or even awake. But the vampires are awake. Damon Salvatore sits in the lounging room, sipping a cup of whiskey, relaxing, one of the only nights in a long time where SOMETHING wasn't going on. He takes another sip, and watches the fire in the fireplace burn. A vampire roams through the woods, starving, and cold. She's been lost for weeks as a brand new vampire, her sense of direction is hopeless. She needs to find a town to feed in now. But as she starts to break through the woods, she sees a large boardinghouse that is lit up, meaning people were home.
