Being just like every other average teenager that tried to live their life wasn’t easy. It hadn’t been easy for the past nine years for Grace, especially after the death of her mother. Sometimes she wondered if there was something she could have done for the events to have gone differently. But that's it, today is going to be different. Today would be the day that she would get out of the house and get her mind off things, even if it’s for a couple of hours.
The park would be the perfect place? It always made her happy when she was a child, at least when she had been in Texas. But it shouldn’t be any different being in Mystic Falls. It wasn’t a place she could really call “home” yet. But her uncle had opened his arms up for them. The least she could do was try to fit in.
The red haired girl walked towards the Founders Park. Her hands were in her pockets as paced towards the nearest park bench. The soft breeze felt good against her skin. It was almost like she could feel her heart beat drop down. Finally she started to feel calm, which was a first for her. That’s when her eyes landed on a handsome blond man that sat on the bench that she stood on the side of him. Almost like the man seemed lonely. But it wasn’t her place to really intrude his personal bubble. But then again it wouldn’t hurt to make small talk. “Do you come here often?” She spoke softly as she moved her hands out of her pockets and motioned onto the bench next to him even though she kept a small distance between the both of them.
