“We’re home, Damon” Elena said. She and Stefan were helping Damon reach the porch, something he’d rather do alone, thinking he’d recovered enough.
“I’m going to open the door” Stefan said. He let go of Damon and ran to the door and opened it. Then he walked back at Damon and Elena. When he wanted to help Damon enter Damon pushed his arm away.
“I don’t need your help” he đã đưa ý kiến pissed, avoiding to look at him.
Stefan looked helplessly at his ex, but she gave him a ‘what did bạn expect’ kind of look back. She helped Damon enter the house and Stefan walked behind them like a Mất tích puppy.
“You want to sleep in your bed?” Stefan asked careful. “Or in the couch? I can get some pillows and sheets”
Damon shook his head. “I’m fine” he đã đưa ý kiến short. “I don’t need anything” Especially not from you, he thought, but he was polite enough not to say that aloud.
“You should get some rest” Elena said.
“I’ll lay on my bed, if that makes bạn happy” Damon gave in. “But I’m not going to sleep”
“Okay” Elena said, knowing it was the best deal she would get. She led Damon to his bedroom where he sat down and she sat tiếp theo to him.
“So” Elena said. “Here we are”
“Here we are” Damon confirmed.
Elena felt her tim, trái tim beating painfully in her chest while her eyes could only stare at Damon’s lips. There was no reason to hold back now.
She leaned forward, knowing there would be no way back.
Right before their lips connected each other Stefan decided to hiển thị up. Elena could hear Damon groan and she herself let out a deep sigh.
“Can I talk to you?”
“I’ll be right back” Elena promised Damon. She followed Stefan outside. “What’s the matter?” Stefan led her to the study room, then turned around. “I need bạn to promise me bạn won’t freak out, because what I’m about to say might sound very sick and it won’t add to my good deeds list”
“What is it?” Elena asked, wanting Stefan to come to the point.
“I think we should tie him up” Stefan said. When Elena’s eyes bulged in upsetting, he hastily added: “Just for now, until he’s fully recovered and he can live with what Bonnie has done to him”
Elena shook her head disgusted.
“I don’t believe you” she đã đưa ý kiến trembling. “He’s been in a physical and mental prison for weeks and now that he’s finally free bạn want to push him back in that prison?”
“No! No, that’s not what I want!” Stefan đã đưa ý kiến desperate. “But bạn know just as well that when Damon is hurt he snaps. And after everything that happened in his life I don’t blame him, but we can’t risk him going on a kill, because he’s messed up. Not everyone has a Gilbert ring”
“Who knows how long it will take for him to get over it? bạn didn’t see him down there. bạn were too much of a coward to come with me. You’d rather have him killed, so you’d have me for yourself. But trust me Stefan, if he would’ve died, I would’ve banished bạn from my life. Fact is, I still might” she đã đưa ý kiến upset.
Stefan looked over Elena’s shoulder. “Please don’t talk so loud, I don’t want Damon to hear us”
“Yeah, God forbid!” Elena exclaimed.
She grabbed the tape out of his hands. “I’ll do it” she đã đưa ý kiến angry and she walked back to Damon’s room. She entered it and walked to the bed. Despite his pretending to be not weak, Damon had fallen asleep after all.
Elena sank down on the bed. “Forgive me, Damon”
