Elena took long strides out of the castle, not looking back to see if people were following or not. Part of her was unsure of what she was doing... or why she had to leave the castle at that very moment... But something in her told her she had to. Finally, once they were outside of the castle, and in the main city of Volterra, she turned around. "Let's go find a night club or something," she said. Then she gave a sigh, "Actually, there isn't much here in the city. Do you think we could take a few vehicles out of the city or something?"
So far, it was working. Mara could see through Elena's eyes. The others were following her, out of the castle. And now, she only had to get them to leave, so that she could send a few of her friends over into the castle. There, they would take the three Masters hostage, and take the role upon themselves as the rulers of the vampire world.
The Masters were to traditional. They believed vampires should be kept hidden, when in fact, they should rule the world. Humans would be at their disposal, vampires would have all power. And Mara, would be at the head of it.
There was also the fact of taking revenge upon the Volturi for killing her brother and his friends. It would have been simpler that way. They would have done all the work, and she would have benefitted. Derek had been partly under her control. He had helped her gain things. But now, he was gone, and she had to go through the trouble of finding other vampires to work under her. It wasn't an easy task. Though she was powerful, not many vampires would take the role as followers to a vampire who looked to be only seven years old.
