“Katherine!” Stefan shouted. “Let me out of here!”
Katherine had locked him up in the cellar, hoping the vervain would keep him weak until Elena and Damon came back. But unfortunately vervain didn’t seem to have the same effect on Stefan as it used to. Probably due to the massive amount of blood he drank daily, openly and secretly, he recovered from the attack sooner than the average vampire. “You know, you’re really one to talk” Stefan said. “You seduced him, led him on, made him believe toi loved him, screwed his brother-well, he knew that, but still-almost got him to commit suicide, had him miss toi for 145 years, thinking toi were locked in the tomb, and then let him find out toi never cared about him. So…if toi really want to talk about betraying Damon toi might want to sit this one out”
Katherine was cleaning up the kitchen, ou at least she pretended. She merely lifted up stuff and put them down really hard so she wouldn’t have to hear what Stefan said. Unfortunately her hearing was too sharp not to hear the words coming out of Stefan’s mouth. And fact was that he was right. She had no right teaching him lessons about honesty and dignity and love. She had no right telling him how he should treat his brother, for she herself had played him like a puppet. She took a deep sigh and decided to go face Stefan. She walked down to the cellar and stopped at the door.
“You’re right” she said. “I have been a chienne to him. But that’s what I am. I’m a chienne and at this age I won’t change anymore. And frankly I don’t want to. I like myself, despite all my bad traits”
“Stop it, Katherine” Stefan a dit sarcastic. “I feel tears coming up”
“Point is, you’re his brother. You’re not supposed to be so awful to him” Katherine continued, montrer no mercy for Stefan.
“He should stop trying to get my girlfriends!” Stefan exclaimed. “It’s not my fault people think I’m plus lovable. It’s not my fault everyone chooses me over Damon. I didn’t ask for it”
“But it didn’t help him toi trumpet about him killing innocent people, now did it?” Katherine said.
“If he wouldn’t have killed those people I wouldn’t have been able to trumpet about it, now would I?” Stefan fired back.
“Because you’re so innocent? toi have no innocent blood on your hands?” Katherine said. Stefan didn’t reply. He had no comeback on this.
“Stefan, there has to be some part of toi that still cares for him” Katherine pleaded. “The part that surrendered himself to Klaus to save him. The part that stopped him from committing suicide twice. Please, let that part get the best of you”
“I can’t” Stefan a dit after a while. “I can’t go back now. I made a choice when I handed my brother to Bonnie”
“Yeah, I’m not saying that wasn’t a malicious job” Katherine agreed. “But as cheesy as it sounds, it’s not too late”
“You don’t understand” Stefan a dit now sad. “I betrayed my brother, because I didn’t want to lose Elena. But she’s still running to him. I’ve Lost both my brother and my girlfriend”
“You can still make some things right” Katherine said. “Come with me, so we can help Elena”
Stefan looked at the ground and shook his head. Then he got up and walked to the door.
“Let me out of here” he a dit now soft.
Katherine unlocked the door and opened it.
