Damon walked through the aisles of the hospital when he bumped into someone.
“Aaah, hot coffee” Bonnie groaned. She had two paper cups of coffee in her hand, only now there was not much left of it.
“What are you doing here?”
“I wanted to see how Elena’s doing. Caroline said she wasn’t feeling very well and then Jeremy told me you brought her here” Bonnie explained a little out of breath. “I thought she might like some coffee, but actually I’m not sure she’s allowed to drink it. Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter anymore”
“No, I mean, what are you doing here?” Damon repeated his question sharply. When he saw Bonnie’s confused expression, he continued. “You’re the reason Elena’s here in the first place”
“If you hadn’t come up with that ridiculous crap of tea curing cancer, she’d be okay right now” Damon snapped.
“I didn’t force her to drink it. She had a choice and she chose to trust me” Bonnie replied in defense.
“And you failed her again” Damon pointed out.
Bonnie closed her eyes and prayed for patience. “Damon” she said when she opened them up again. “I swear I only had good intentions. I’ve learned my lesson. You think I was on a vacation? I went to a shrink to get over my problems with you. I was doing fine with Caroline, Elena didn’t seem to be so angry anymore, Jeremy talks to me again. Even you cared enough to tell me to be careful. Why would I want to risk any of that?”
Damon thought about and realized she had a point.
“Fine, then” he gave in reluctantly. He told her where she could find his girlfriend. “I’ll get some more coffee”
