“You should go see a doctor”
Elena and Damon were sitting at the kitchen table with the first aid kit in the center. Elena had tried to bandage Damon’s finger, but the bandage didn’t want to cooperate.
“I can’t go to a doctor, I’m a vampire” Damon said. “And it’s broken, a first aid kit is not going to help”
“But doesn’t it hurt?” Elena asked compassionate.
“It’s okay” Damon said. Bonnie had made the pain lighter, just like she did with the whole jinx, but of course she couldn’t take it away completely. For that she had to die and since he couldn’t kill her, because of Elena that wasn’t an option. But still, accidents happen, Damon thought malicious. A somewhat evil smirk appeared on his face as he imagined all the possible accidental deaths Bonnie could face. He could push her in front of a car. Not his fault he had a sudden tic in his arm. He could set her house on fire. What, I thought you liked fire so much?
“Damon?” Elena said and Damon came back to earth. “Were you dreaming?”
Damon nodded. “Yeah, a little”
“Was it nice?” Elena asked curious.
“It would’ve been a lot nicer if you were in it” Damon said, looking into Elena’s eyes. She was acting pretty normal. Was there any chance the spell had been broken?
“Elena, do you know what has been going on?” he asked careful. He didn’t want to bring it up, but he had to if he wanted to know the truth. “Do you know what happened to Stefan? Do you remember?”
Elena stared at him and then chuckled. “Of course I know. Stefan joined Klaus and now he’s a ripper. I’m not suffering from memory loss”
“You don’t think it’s a bad thing he’s gone?” Damon asked rather hopeful.
“Well, he’s coming back, right?” Elena said obvious. When Damon didn’t reply her smile vanished. “Damon, he has to come back. I can’t live without him. He’s my Edward” Damon shivered. The fact that she referred to Twilight should be proof enough Elena was not back at all. He’s my Edward, seriously?
“I’m not sure he’s coming back, Elena” he said careful. As soon as he had said that Elena started crying. “No, please, don’t cry. I’m sorry I said that. I didn’t mean it” He meant every word he said, but Elena didn’t need to know that. All he wanted was for her to stop crying, even if he had to take back his words. “Can I do something to make you feel better?”
Elena looked up with wet eyes. “Ice cream makes me feel better”
Ice cream, Damon thought, nope, she definitely wasn’t back yet.
