Epilogue: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Epilogue: Something Wicked This Way Comes

She watched the scene roll out before her like some sort of supernaturally twisted happy ending of a Hallmark movie.

Damon and his little wife were walking a bit ahead of Stefan and Elena. There was a new tension between the foursome evident in Stefan’s frown as he stared at his brother’s back and Elena’s wide, doleful stare at the little wife. It was something she planned on exploiting very soon. Stirring up some drama was always a good way to distract from her ultimate goal.

For the most part, Damon and his missus acted unaware of the dagger stares piercing their back. They huddled close together, the length of her body pressed into Damon’s side as if they were two halves of a whole attempting to meld together. Every once in a while, the casual arm Damon had slung around her shoulders would slip down to her hip and pull her into him, his hand trailing lazy circles up and down her side.

It was a painful reminder of what she didn’t have – of what she was determined to get.

Even as she watched, she heard the end of a witty quip from Damon and his baby vamp wife dissolved into giggles, tripping over her feet as she laughed.

Pathetic, really. What kind of a vampire – new or not – actually tripped over themselves?

While Damon wasn’t the brother she even wanted, it was hard for Katherine draw her eyes away from him. She’d kept tabs on her faithful puppy throughout the years, but had never seen him smile quite like he was currently. He even laughed lightly as he clutched Isabella’s elbow to keep her from tripping again. Genuine, Katherine decided was the right way to describe it. The air of sarcastic wit was still there, but as he looked down at his wife, Damon practically oozed genuineness. For her alone, though, it would seem as Damon caught Stefan staring and gave him a glare that mentally shouted fuck you.

Damned if that didn’t piss her off even more than she already was. If she couldn’t have Stefan at the moment, then she at least wanted Damon panting after her. A girl’s ego needed to be stroked, after all.

She continued to watch them from afar as they approached the Mystic Grill. Damon and his precious Bella appeared to be in high spirits, something that was like adding salt to an open wound. Katherine had wanted to shake them up by paying the girl a little visit but she’d underestimated Damon’s attachment to her. The girl had reeked of Damon, true, but she’d thought it to be from sex, not his blood. The girl was suppose to die, not turn. Blondie was the only one she’d killed with that intention.

She’d just wanted to see Damon’s new toy die.

Which is why when her phone started buzzing, Katherine turned away from the group disappearing into the restaurant and took the call.

“I see you’ve managed to screw things up,” the woman on the other line sassed, her sweet voice grating in Katherine’s ear.

“Such big words when you’re so far away,” Katherine narrowed her eyes. “I have to wonder what your tone would be if you were here in front of me.”

“I’m not stupid, Katherine,” she said. “I know if I come anywhere near you then you’ll kill me. I’m a loose end, but I can still help you. You won’t kill me as long as I’m valuable. I told you I’ll help you – I even told you about Victoria and kept you aware of when Bella would be left alone,” she said, sounding like an overeager teacher’s pet.

“Right you are, little Alice,” Katherine hummed, not even remotely perturbed by the Cold One’s posturing. “Now go ahead and give me the news – and it’d better be good.”

“The Volturi will not interfere,” she announced. “The affairs of your kind are not under their domain, as you well know, so they will not concern themselves with your plans.”

Katherine nodded. “That’s a start,” she allowed. “Continue.”

“I have information for you that will prove a better bargaining chip when Elijah or Klaus eventually arrive.”

There was a heavy pause.

“I’m listening,” Katherine prompted coolly, unwilling to let the pixie know how eager she was for her information. Elijah she was sure she could handle, but Klaus… She’d spent centuries running from him and she knew it would take something big in order for him to let her off the hook from ruining his plans all those years ago.

An annoyed sigh sounded and Katherine smirked. “Well for your information,” Alice began with a huff, even as she obediently replied. “I happen to know for a fact that Klaus is not the only hybrid in existence.”

Another long, dramatic pause.

Katherine growled. “Spit it out, you silly girl.”

“Bella,” she breathed.

Katherine frowned. “Damon’s little bitch? She’s not a hybrid.”

“Not in the way your thinking,” Alice allowed. “She was bitten by one of our kind. To keep her from turning, Edward sucked the venom out, but I have it on good authority that though the venom was removed from her system, it is impossible that it wouldn’t have left it’s mark. She may not have fully changed, but some trace of the venom lingers in her scar, minute though it is.”

“And now she’s a vampire,” Katherine finished, her mind racing at the implications as new plans started to take root.

It was impossible to know if the girl was truly a hybrid between the two vampire species, but Katherine had done her homework on Isabella Swan… A silent mind to the Cold Ones and impossible to compel. And that had been while she was still human.

She could only imagine what she was capable of now as a vampire…

Maybe nothing – but maybe something.

Yes, Katherine decided, unceremoniously hanging up on the pixie vampire. Originally she’d planned to barter for her life by helping Klaus finally complete the ritual – killing little Elena in the process which left Stefan free for the taking. But even she knew the chance of Klaus letting her go even with her help was slim to none…

But if she had something to offer to sweeten the deal? If she could hand over the first known Cold One/Vampire hybrid – well, that’d be the icing on the cake then, wouldn’t it? A deal too tempting she doubted even Klaus could pass it up.

There were still i’s to dot and t’s to cross, but Katherine walked away from the grill, her mind spinning as she smirked to herself. She’d do whatever was necessary to survive… to get Stefan and come out on top.

Mystic Falls wouldn’t know what hit it.


 

(A/N): Thank you all so much for reading. A sequel is in progress, but won’t be posted immediately. Please like me on facebook in order to get teasers and when it comes time to post, you’ll find it here first!

Thanks for going on this journey with me – it’s been a joy!

  1. Katherine never knows when to leave well enough alone.
    I’m kind of hoping that Bella is a hybrid of some kind because I’m hoping that will give her an advantage over older vampires.
    I also almost hope Katherine succeeds in turning Bella over to Klaus and Elijah but have it backfire on her and have the original brothers care for Bella as a close friend or even sister.
    It would definitely be beneficial to have originals backing you up.
    I am so looking forward to the sequel.

    1. Love this story. I have to agree with your review 100 percent. It would be awesome if rebekah became her bestfriend too.

  2. A perfect epilogue — teasing for the next adventure! Is Bella clumsy because she’s still coming into herself as a new vamp? No matter. I am so unsurprised Alice is involved — wretched little troll doll will get hers I’m sure. 😉 I look forward to reading the next story and thank you for writing this one.

  3. Oh, I am full of sadness here. Reading the epilogue was like leaving a friends house, knowing you won’t see them for quite a while. Thirsty has been one of my favorite stories from the moment I read the very first word. It will always be one of my favorite stories. It’s one of the few out there that is written extremely well, has well rounded characters, character growth, and last nut not least, a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. There is a little bit of everything here. Drama, action, suspense, humor and yet it is a love story. You truly rite one of the best Damon’s out there and you made me fall in love with him all over again. It’s hard not to love him, but you made me love him even more. I loved how you took heartbroken, shy Bella and turned her into a strong, independent woman, I loved how Damon was able to bring out the Bella that he knew was there all along. It was beautiful to see Damon find his true love, and to accept it and protect it. I love how their relationship grew and blossomed throughout the story. I could ramble for hours on the reasons I absolutely adore this story. Thank you so much for publishing it. It has given me joy to read it. I look forward to the sequel and I hope Kitty Kat and Malice get what’s coming to them. Congrats on your completed story, sistah! It’s a job well done!

  4. excellent! this is a whole new adventure for Damon and Bella. can’t wait for the sequel. i for one would like to see a long and very painful death for Alice. i’m sure Jasper would help. 😀

  5. Ack!! But a nice treat when I woke up!!! But yeah, Katherine is a female dog at all times. I am not surprised by it, nor Alice’s meddling. But I have faith in Bella and Damon. Bring it on everyone!! Our wonderful duo will win!!

  6. You took what was supposed to be an epilogue and twisted it into a giant tease about the sequel… Well done! I’m looking forward to continue the wonderfully action-packed love story that I’m sure the next one will be, if this one is anything to go on. Loved this story!

  7. Congratulations on finishing what has been an epic story. I have enjoyed every word and cannot wait to read whatever else you will be writing.
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and all the very best for 2015!
    Best wishes

  8. I cannot wait till the sequel and bella a hybrid wow just wow. it would interesting to see who’s ass she can kick being a hybrid very very nice. i wonder if her bite is venomous too?

  9. Figures the little troll vamp would be helping Katherine. It really will be lovely to watch karma smack them down. Well, after Bella and Damon get their turn first. I can’t wait to see how Klaus will at into the story, and making Bella a hybrid, oh that just made her even more appealing I’m sure.
    I really enjoyed this story (ok all of your stories actually). Thanks for sharing it – I can’t wait for more.😊

  10. Dayum woman… now I really want to read the sequel!
    Feeling a little sad this is over, it’s the first thing I read of yours, before I’d ever even spoken to you… but I’m also eager to see what you’ll come up with next. I’m sure whatever it is, I’ll love it ❤

  11. So sad to see it end but boy did you give us a lovely teaser for what’s to come. Conniving Katherine, Pixie Bitch and our favorite Originals. Excited and eager for what comes next!
    Truly this was an amazing story to read. I congratulate you on its awesomeness and thank you for sharing it with all of us.

  12. Ohh. I reread the story again. I love it so much! Can’t wait till Klaus comes in. I am sure you will write him magnificently, though I hope he will grow to be friends with Bella 🙂

  13. please update soon! or tell us when you plan on updating for the sequel! this is my favorite vampire diaries/ twilight crossover fanfiction! this story started my obsession for della! ❤ can't wait to hear from you!!!

    1. I am planning one, yes, but I decided to take a little break from Bella/Damon. I do hope to start it soon enough though – I just want to outline/write far enough ahead so updates will be fairly regular 🙂

      1. Do you have an idea of when you’ll start posting it? I’m kind of jumping up and down waiting for it… 😉

  14. I’ve just read this story start to finish today, I am extremely happy that I found your page. I loved this story, I am hoping that you still plan to write a sequel. (I know it’s short review but can’t think of how I wanna say what all I loved of the story, even if it’s everything)

  15. Lmao! So you were inspired by my story, and now I’m getting inspired by yours. Funny how things work? I just have to figure out something since it is no longer part if THAT storyline (the one we turned original). But I may hVe something in mind…

  16. You are clearly one of the best writers I know of out there. That was one epic and absolutely wonderful story. And even though this is the third time I’m reading it, I’ve scotched to it since the first sentence. I’m convinced the sequel will be as equally captivating and I can’t wait for you to post it. Please answer my prayers and do it soon 😉

    Take care,
    Marie

  17. Had to do another re-read of your lovely story. In fact I do usually twice a year. It’s one of my favorites.
    Hope all is with you and your family and I have fingers crossed the writing bug bites you again. Hugs to you.
