Though visiting hour was long over, it didn’t stop Stefan from sneaking into Elena’s bedroom. Elena had fallen asleep shortly after Bonnie had left. Stefan had expected Damon to be in the room, but Elena happened to be alone.
Stefan walked to the bed and sank down on it. Elena, sensing his stare, opened her eyes and frowned.
“Stefan?” she asked sleepy.
“It’s okay. Go back to sleep” Stefan hushed, regretting he woke her.
“No” Elena moaned and she sat up difficult. “I’m up” She cast him a faint, tired smile. “I’m glad you came”
“I had to come and see you, but I didn’t want to bother anyone” Stefan explained. “Where’s Damon? I figured he’d be here”
Elena shrugged. “He’s wandering around the hospital somewhere…Probably getting drunk” she mumbled, pretending not to care, but Stefan knew better.
“What happened?” Stefan asked.
“Why? What makes you think something happened?” Elena shrugged again, but cautiously looking away from her ex-boyfriend.
