My name is Elena Gilbert, I'm 18 years old and I grew up in Mystic Falls. The town that used to be safe...where nothing ever happened. But that was two years ago... I'm a vampire, I've suffered, I've lost, and I've endured...I've survived...because I always survive, Through everything going on in my life, I somehow graduated and the sire bond is gone. I got Jeremy back and I finally made my choice, I'm hoping finally I can be happy...but with this town, who knows how long that will last.
