LEX - Episode 29
It was dusk when Tobias came to pick the boys from school.
He had been busy earlier training the night walker on how to shadow in the dark without being noticed.
Kol had released the daylight ring to all the vampires this certain evening. It seems he was in a good mood- they were to feel the sun one more time for just few hours.
The vampires were in the garden; some were playing on the basement; some on the second floor.
The mood at the penthouse was unchilling cool- and that was strange.
Kol stood at his office window- observing how the vamps were interacting.
It was as if he had a reason for distributing the ring to the vamps on this occasion.
"Why were you late?"
Adam asked, furiously.
"Hey!!! Cool those rage"
Tobias said, as he made a left turn away from the school.
"Boy!!! Blame it on your great grandfather-"
"You mean Kol?"
"Who else? Kol of course"
"And what did he do this time?"
Adam asked, looking so curious.
"That old man is....."
"Watch it Tobias"
Derrick screamed Tobias swerve to right instantly- he tried everything possible to avoid a head-to-head collision which he was successful in doing.
The SUV drifted out of it lane; and crossed over to a different lane thereby colliding with a pole.
The impact in which the SUV hit the pole wasn't much but the SUV windscreen was wrecked.
Tobias hit his head on the steering before he could be saved by the airbag. Ingrid also had a small cut on her head due to the impact with the dashboard.

. Adam and boys were less involved in the ghastly accident.
"What the f*ck!"
"You are bleeding on your forehead"
Cole said, pointing to the cut on Tobias head.
"It will heal"
Lex said, instantly; and thus, the cut began to close up.
"I said so"
he added, smirking. Tobias got down from the SUV to check the damage on the van. "Oh Shit! The hood is wrecked" he said aloud
"Can it be managed home?"
"I guess so"
Tobias replied; as he entered the van to ignite it.
After four trials, the SUV coughed and sputtered.
Tobias then drove to the penthouse with the van moving so slow like a tortoise- but he managed to reach it destination.
They horn for some minutes before the gate was finally flung open.
"What the hell is happening here!"
Ingrid said, being bemused.
The vamps were still feeling the setting sun on their skin.
Kol was still watching the vampires from his window.
He was so happy at the work Gerard and Austin had done in his absence.
They had transformed the vampires into a tamed creature and can control them at their will.
"I was about to tell you what was happening in the penthouse before that crazy trailer came bumping at us"
"Has the daylight ring been returned to the vamps?"
"Nah! But guess Kol is in a good mood today"
"I guess so"
Derrick said Tobias drove the SUV into the compound and was about to pull over in the garage- suddenly, a swift movement came from inside the SUV.
It was Lex; he drifted out of the van and headed instantly toward a storey building. It was a young vampire- a girl of twelve year old, she was playing with her friends on the forth floor of a storey building. Sp
Suddenly she skid over the rails and fell from the building. She became motionless in the air- she had lose her grip and had become helpless.
Kol watch the scenario from his office- a small girl was about to feel an immersed pain.
Even though she would be okay; even if her bones get broken- they will heal.
Instantly, Lex got to the scene in a minute.
The fallen angel dropped into his arms in style.
Tobias and the rest watched from the van- they were surprise at the exceptional speed of Lex.
He was a great speedster unlike the rest of the vampires of his age.
Lex abilities were growing day-in day-out.
The forgotten secret his superintendent had thought they had buried- will now start to raise questions from the vamps.
Lex speed! His reflex! His agility! His strength! Those are beginning to raise suspicion.
"Are you okay?"
Lex said, beaming the little girl an awesome smile. "Thanks lex" she assured him Lex then dropped her- but to his surprise, all eyes were on him. He didn't understand what was wrong or why everyone was looking at him. But he was proud to have helped a young girl. Kol couldn't help it but to be befuddled by such an amazing speed.
He had been suspecting Lex for awhile now.
He knew something was different about him- he was kinda different from the usual vampires.
He wasn't an Olsen but he posses the ability of a true vampire... An original vampire! Kol was ready to find out his true identity and keep him on radar.
