Alaric, Elena and Jeremy were standing before Jenna’s grave.
“I’m sorry it took me so long to get here, Jenna” Alaric sinabi soft.
“Yeah, now you’re here”
Jeremy, who was the only one who heard it, startled and looked up. Jenna was sitting on her grave and winked at him.
“Are you alright, Jer?” Elena asked frowning and looking at her younger brother.
“Yeah, yeah” Jeremy sinabi quickly. He stared at the stone, but Jenna was gone. Then he heard someone whistle and he looked around. Jenna was standing a few yards away from them.
“Jeremy, what are you looking at?” Alaric asked.
Jeremy took a deep breath and decided to come clean. “What would you say if I told you Jenna is standing right there?” he pointed ahead of him.
“Jeremy?” Elena asked concerned.
“I’m not crazy, Elena” Jeremy said. “She’s really there…You know I called for Anna’s help last night? That was because she was there”
“You’re seeing dead people?” Alaric asked a little shocked.
“Ever since Bonnie resurrected me” Jeremy confessed.
“And right now you’re seeing aunt Jenna?” Elena asked careful. Jeremy nodded. “She wants to talk to me”
Elena and Alaric shared a concerned look, but Jeremy headed to the ghost of his deceased aunt.
“Why are you still here?” he asked when he reached her. “I mean, not that I want you gone, but I thought everything was back to normal when I stabbed Bonnie”
“Bonnie is still alive” Jenna said.
“I don’t get it” Jeremy said. “People have died already. Kelsey and Amber Lindy died. Shouldn’t that be enough to restore the balance of life and death?”
Jenna shook her head. “No, the Lindy sisters were supposed to die all along. To restore the balance someone who’s supposed to live has to die”
“Why did this happen? How come all these dead people came to me?” Jeremy asked. He needed sagot now.
“When Bonnie brought you back to life, using magic, she opened a portal. The portal to the other side. A lot of deceased people saw a chance of going back to the world they used to know, a chance to go back to their beloved ones. But it doesn’t work that way. Except for you no one could see or hear them, so nothing changed for them”
“You should go” Jenna said. “Don’t worry, I’ll be around” she winked and then she slowly faded away.
