The next morning
Elena had just left for school and Damon was cleaning the table, when he heard strange noises.
“Show yourself” he said annoyed. What was it with people thinking they could just walk in here like they owned this place? He did. And Stefan and Elena did. Anyone else should learn how to knock.
The weird noises stopped and an old familiar appeared.
“No, not you again” Damon groaned. “Whatever you’re selling, I’m not buying it”
“I need your help” Derek said nervous.
“Why is that?” Damon said sarcastic.
Derek conjured his cell phone and showed Damon the last few taxes he received. “I know what you are and I’m going to tell everybody?” Damon read. “I know Tyler got them too and you and your brother and your friends will receive them too” Derek said. “Someone wants to expose all supernatural’s in this town and I know who it is”
“Care for sharing?” Damon asked bored.
“There’s this new girl, Veronica Chambers, who works in The Grill. She talked to Tyler about supernatural beings. She knows about you and Stefan. She knows about the rings” Derek said.
“No one’s going to believe her” Damon said.
“She doesn’t want people to believe her” Derek said. “She wants us dead”
“Well, we can’t let that happen, now can we?” Damon said.
“So, like I said, I need your help” Derek said.
