“They took Katherine?” Stefan exclaimed. He got up from the couch and ironed his hair with both his hands. “Why would they do that? Katherine didn’t have anything to do with Amber or Kelsey”
He turned to Damon. “How could you leave her there?” he asked frustrated.
“I had no choice, Veronica would just attack me again” Damon defended himself.
“Well, we can’t just leave her there” Stefan replied upset.
“Why not?” Rebekah asked smug. “I suggest we let the bitch stay put” Both Damon and Elena ducked at Rebekah, but Stefan was the one grabbing her by her long, blonde hair.
“You shut the fuck up, bitch!” he shouted. “This is your fault! You made her upset! You heard what she said to me and yet you couldn’t let me handle it. And now look what happened. We’re not married yet, I can still blow this whole thing off” He let go of her and she fell back in the couch. She looked hurt at Stefan and tried to fix her hair, so she wouldn’t have to answer.
“Okay, are you done?” Damon asked Stefan. “We have a friend to save”
“Yeah” Stefan said with one last and nasty look at his fiancée. “I’m coming”
“Me too” Elena said determined.
“No!” both Stefan and Damon echoed in chorus.
“Why not?” Elena exclaimed frustrated.
“Elena, the only thing that’s keeping you safe is the fact that Veronica doesn’t know you’re the doppelganger” Damon explained.
“She has already seen me. She knows I’m not a vampire. She’ll figure it out” Elena replied.
“All the more reason for you to stay here. I don’t want you to go into the lion’s cave. And don’t forget, you’re sick”
“I feel fine” Elena protested. “Those herbs Caroline gave me are really helpful”
“But you’re not cured yet” Damon cut her off. He turned to Rebekah. “Make sure she stays inside”
“Yeah, see you can bring that to a successful end” Stefan added scoffing, before he followed Damon outside.
