Jeremy was brushing his teeth when he saw Anna’s reflection in the mirror. He should have startled, but he just spit out the toothpaste and washed his mouth. “When I turn around you’ll be gone, won’t you?” he said. He saw Anna shrugging her shoulders. “You’ll never know if you don’t try” she said. Jeremy turned around and to his surprise Anna was still standing by the window-ledge. “How is this possible?” Jeremy asked. “How can you be standing there while I know you’re dead? I saw how they took you. And Damon said they killed you” Anna looked down. “Damon was speaking the truth, I got killed, I am dead” she answered. “Then why are you standing there, talking to me like a living person?” Jeremy continued asking. Anna lifted her hands. “I haven’t figured that out yet. I must have some unfinished business. I was hoping you could help me find out what that is”
“We all want Jeremy’s help” a female and familiar voice said. Jeremy rotated his head to the closet to see Vicky, leaning comfortably onto the closet’s door. “Hi, Jer, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?” Jeremy stared at her, not knowing what to say. “I get why you’re so…overwhelmed by our presence. But Anna’s right, we have some…unfinished business to solve. The only difference is that I at least know what the…unfinished business in my case is” Vicky explained. Jeremy pulled a ‘you’re nuts’ face. “And that is?” “Let’s see, who attacked me multiple times, snapped my neck and turned me into a vampire?” “What, you’re here to take revenge on Damon?” he slowly asked. Vicky shrugged. “Who knows?” “Stop the cryptic talk. Whatever the truth is, I can handle it. I was dead, you know. Puts quite a lot in perspective” Jeremy said, getting agitated. He turned back to Anna. “And you? Are you here to take revenge on the person who killed you?” But instead of answering both girls disappeared. Jeremy looked around, feeling cold wind swirling around him. “Don’t ask” he heard Anna’s voice whispering in his ear. “Don’t tell” Vicky whispered. “Don’t search” Anna softly said. “Don’t…fall…asleep” Vicky said, before the swirling wind stopped and everything was quiet and peaceful again. Jeremy held onto the hand basin, trying to keep his balance, while heavily breathing.
