Elena got out of the shower. Drying her hair with a towel she went downstairs to open the door and let Caroline in.
“Hi” she 说 as Caroline walked in.
“Hi” Caroline replied. “Can we talk?”
“Is it about Damon? ‘Cause then I don’t want to hear it” Elena kind of begged.
“Well, I’m sorry, but it is” Caroline said. “And I think 你 should hear this”
Elena shrugged. “Fine, then” she sighed. “Let’s go to my room, I don’t want Jeremy nor Ric to hear us”
And thus Caroline followed Elena upstairs. As Elena fell down on the 床, 床上 she looked at Caroline. “So, what is it that I so need to know?”
“I’ve been talking to Damon” Caroline began. “And from what I came to know things aren’t like 你 think they are”
“Oh, so he didn’t try to force himself on me?” Elena asked sarcastic.
“You shouldn’t have 说 you’d go back to Stefan. That really hurt him” Caroline explained.
“Oh, well, in that case” Elena exclaimed.
“No! It doesn’t make it okay! But have 你 forgotten what Stefan has done? He betrayed Damon, so Bonnie could torture him. He attacked you, just to keep 你 away from Damon. The idea that 你 would go back to Stefan, after everything, only because he won’t have sex with you…”
Elena blinked while she let Caroline’s words sink in. “So he’s not jealous?”
“No, he’s just hurt. He feels like 你 don’t care enough to consider his feelings” Caroline said. Elena nodded. “Okay, I get that part. I was stupid, I shouldn’t have 说 that. But he still tried to rape me. How can I ever forgive him for that?”
Caroline shook her head. “No, 你 don’t understand. He was never going to rape you”
Elena raised her eyebrows. “Wow, could’ve fooled me”
“He wanted to scare 你 off. Right after 你 begged him to stop he stopped, didn’t he?” Elena nodded. “And he 说 sorry right after it? He wanted 你 to be too scared to try again”
“Why? Why did he have to do that?” Elena asked now completely confused.
“Did Damon ever tell 你 about his first dream about Bonnie?” Caroline asked. Elena shook her head. “You asked him to sleep together and he agreed. 你 kissed him, got half-naked, made him touch you. Then 你 rolled over and 你 changed into Bonnie”
“What?” Elena asked soft.
“Whenever 你 get intimate with him-more intimate than a kiss-he remembers how Bonnie kissed him, how she cut open his chest with her nails, how she in scripted his back with vervain, how she burned his eyes, made him feed on himself, broke his arm, how she set him on 火, 消防 literally. All of that comes back when 你 try to sleep with him” Caroline explained.
“Oh God” Elena 说 breathless. “Thank God Bonnie’s gone”
“Actually, she’s not gone anymore” Caroline confessed. “Katherine locked her in the tomb and Damon helped me find her. I let her stay with me, but I told her not to go see 你 或者 Damon”
“I have to go” Elena 说 agitated. “Thank 你 for telling me this” Leaving Caroline in her room she rushed downstairs.
