Elena was lying on her bed, her eyes red from the tears she had cried, when Stefan walked in.
“Okay, that wasn’t exactly the image I had in mind” he said. He walked to the giường and sank down. “You want to talk about it?”
Elena shrugged and dried her eyes. “You can tell your brother he can shove his ego as far up his đít, mông, ass as possible” she đã đưa ý kiến with a heavy voice.
Stefan naturally knew what she was talking about. After all he’d been there when Damon was dodging Elena’s calls.
“Try it again” he đã đưa ý kiến kind.
“I can’t” Elena said. “My phone’s gone. Well, I can’t find it anyways”
“You know” Stefan began careful. “He’s afraid. He’s afraid of what bạn have to say to him. He thinks you’re going to say bạn only felt sorry for him and that you’re going to insist on staying friends, but nothing more”
Elena sat up quickly. “Whàt? Why would he think that? Have bạn tried to talk him out of it?” she đã đưa ý kiến desperate.
“Yes, and so has Caroline, but he refuses to believe any of us” Stefan said. “He will only accept it from one person” he đã đưa ý kiến looking sharply at Elena.
“How am I supposed to tell him when he won’t even talk to me?” Elena exclaimed desperate.
“Go to him, talk to him in person” Stefan said. “There’s no one else, but him…I’m moving out”
Elena frowned, then shook her head confused.
“Wait, what? Moving out? What are bạn talking about?”
“I’m renting Ric’s loft” Stefan explained. He got off the giường and walked to Elena’s closet. He threw her clothes on the bed.
“What are bạn doing?” Elena asked, getting up as well.
“Where are your bags?” Stefan asked. He looked at the bottom of the closet and found them. “Never mind”
He threw the bags on the giường and threw her clothes in it.
“What are bạn doing?” Elena repeated, looking at the bags, with big eyes.
“Sure bạn don’t want Damon to live in that big house all bởi himself, now do you? Or, God forbid it, with Katherine” Stefan teased.
Elena’s eyes bulged and she grabbed the rest of her stuff and threw them in her bags.
They heard a car honk.
“I told Caroline to come pick bạn up” Stefan explained Elena’s unasked question.
“You must have been pretty sure I would give in” Elena đã đưa ý kiến with a faint smile.
“Well, you’ve been pretty transparent lately when it comes to my big brother” Stefan đã đưa ý kiến smiling back. “So, are bạn ready?”
Elena took a deep breath. “Yes” she đã đưa ý kiến and she followed Stefan downstairs, while he carried her bags.
