Elena was lying on a hospital, surrounded by her friends. She was awake and a little annoyed.
“I’m fine, I want to go home” she said.
“You fainted, Elena. You need to slow down a bit” Caroline said bossy.
“I just have a low blood pressure, which is no surprise” Elena said pointing at her neck.
“Well, the doctor wants you to stay here for the night” Stefan said. “And I agree with him”
“This is a conspiracy” Elena said grumpy.
“We can stay if you want” Jeremy suggested.
“And stop me from leaving, right” Elena said, figuring her brother out. “No, you can all leave, so I can fall asleep and this night can be over and I can go home again”
“I really think someone should stay here” Stefan insisted.
“I’ll do it” Katherine said, getting inside.
“Perfect, you can all go. My ancestor will make sure I don’t move a muscle” Elena said.
“Are you sure?” Alaric asked.
“Yes” Elena said. “Katherine will take very good care of me, won’t you, Katherine?”
“Of course” Katherine said obvious.
“Alright then” Alaric said. They started moving outside. At the door Stefan turned around. “Call me when you have the results of your test”
Elena nodded. They closed the door. “Finally” she sighed. “Can you put on the TV?” Katherine did what she asked and tuned in on the news.
“The car was on fire, but they were able to get the victim out of the car. The doctor’s tried to do CPR, but the victim had died before help arrived”
“Elena” Katherine said. She looked at her doppelganger, whose eyes were fixated on the screen.
