Katherine quickly put on her clothes as Damon carried Elena upstairs. “You can lay her down on my bed, I’ll sleep on the couch” Stefan said. Damon held his steps, but didn’t turn around. Then he walked further to Stefan’s room where he lay Elena down on Stefan’s bed. He took off her shoes and left. He went to Elena’s room-yes, she had her own room in the house-and collected the dirty sheets, which had been lying there since morning.
Downstairs Stefan was furious at Katherine.
“See what you’ve done? Now Elena will think I cheated on her and I didn’t do anything!” he raged.
“She’s sleeping, Stefan! She didn’t see shit!” Katherine shot back.
“When will toi get it in your head that I have no interest in toi whatsoever? If you’re so eager on having someone to play with, try Damon” Stefan fired.
“That’s low, even for you” Katherine said. She got up to open the door; someone had ringed. A short, blonde girl was standing in the doorway. Her face was wet of crying. “Hello, I…eh…I need to talk to Stefan Salvatore”
Katherine raised her eyebrows and looked down on the visitor. “Who’s asking?” she a dit arrogant.
“Kelsey Lindy” Kelsey a dit who succeeded in keeping her voice under control.
“Let her in, Kat” Stefan a dit and Katherine reluctantly step aside. Kelsey walked into the room and Stefan got up. “I’m really sorry for what happened to your sister. toi are her sister, right?”
Kelsey only nodded.
“I never meant for anything fatal to happen to her” Stefan continued.
“And that makes it okay?” Kelsey now said.
“No! Not at all! I’m not trying to make excuses” Stefan hastily said.
“Good” Kelsey said. “I couldn’t ours to hear them”
Katherine slammed the door and Stefan looked up. “Can toi cut to the chase, dear, we don’t have all night”
Kelsey ignored her. “In ten minutes the moon will rise and I will turn. I should bite toi and make toi suffer the way Amber has suffered”
“I understand your pain” Stefan said, but Kelsey covered her ears not to hear it.
“Stop trying to talk yourself out of it! Stop trying to pretend toi know how I feel! toi can’t possibly know!” she cried. She breathed heavily. “You’re lucky I’m not like you. I don’t play with people, I don’t manipulate them, I don’t use them for my own personal gain, I don’t make them suffer”
“Tick tock, tick tock” Katherine teased. She yawned. “Stefan, please, snap her neck, rip her cœur, coeur out, liberate her from her pain”
“Speaking of hearts…” Kelsey conjured a stake out of her pocket, the stake Derek had donné her. She aimed for Stefan’s heart, but the moment she wanted to stake, she gasped. Her eyes bulged and blood came out of her mouth.
