Stefan grabbed Elena by her hair and dragged her back into the house, his ripper face still on.
“Stefan, let go of me. You’re hurting me” Elena cried.
“Well, you’re hurting me!” Stefan growled. “We haven’t even officially broken up yet and you’re already clinging on my brother like a fetus on a navel string”
He dragged her to his bedroom and wanted to throw her inside, when he felt a sudden aching in his back. He looked aside and saw Katherine. He brought his arm back until he found the stake.
“Okay, first of all, ouch!” Stefan said and he pulled out the stake. “Second of all” he threw the stake on the ground. “that was very rude, Katerina Petrova”
“You have to let her go” Katherine said trembling.
“Whyyyyy?” Stefan dramatically asked. “She’s my girlfriend” he kissed Elena. “She’s has no business in looking for my brother”
He looked at the door and a thought crossed his mind. “Well, now that we’re here…” he said with a creepy smile and Elena realized what he wanted to do. In a reflex she lifted up her knee and Stefan let go of her.
She ran and Katherine tried to stab Stefan a second time but he smacked her against the wall.
“Don’t be such an attention trigger, Katherine” Stefan said annoyed.
Elena ran to the front door when Stefan flashed in front of her, locking the door.
“Stefan, please” Elena said, now really crying. “I’m begging you, let me go, let me go and help Damon. You will never forgive yourself if he dies”
Stefan let out a very deep sigh and rolled his eyes. “Why the hell do you care so much about him? He’s nothing but a monster”
Elena’s fear was joined with another emotion. Anger. She looked up at Stefan and as she walked towards him she said: “What did you just call him? How dare you judge him. Ever since I met him you’ve kept saying he was evil, he was a murderer”
“I was just being honest” Stefan said.
“Saying your brother is a murderer and leaving out the part where you were a ripper and killed whole towns and villages is not honest. It’s hypocrite” Elena said furious and shaking. “Damon started killing because he was broken. Because he lost the woman he loved. It’s not an excuse, I know that and he knows that. But what’s your excuse? People loved you too much?”
Stefan growled. He didn’t want to hear this.
“You told me Damon’s a monster…but the only monster I see is you” Elena said heartless.
Stefan closed his eyes, trying to be patient.
“I understand you and Damon have bonded while I was gone. I realize you’ve developed a deep friendship with him”
“Aaahh!” Elena let out. “Don’t you get it? I kissed him!”
Stefan stared at her as if she had slapped him. “What?”
“When he was dying and I was with him I kissed him” Elena confessed. “And you know what? I [i]liked[/i it and I don’t regret it. I would do it again in a heart beat”
Stefan’s face went back human and he felt a burning pain in his shoulder. He dropped on the ground, Katherine standing over him, a vervain syringe in her hand.
“Go!” she said. Elena unlocked the door and ran outside.
