One week later…
Sunray illuminated Elena’s face. She was awake, but didn’t want to get out of cama yet. The past week had been quite hectic. After Stefan and Damon had brought her início from the hamburger place Damon had returned and taken care of tattoo-guy. Or that was what he had planned to. However, when he got back he told Stefan and Elena that there was good news and bad news.
“The good news is that he’s not dead. Yay you, Elena” Damon said throwing his fists in the air. “The bad news is that he’s probably a vampire and he’s gone” That was a bummer. He assured Elena he and Stefan would protect her from him if he’d ever try something on her again. But Elena hadn’t seen or heard from him ever since and she thought he was keeping a low profile, so she wasn’t exactly scared. And today she didn’t want to be scared. Not today of all days.
She sat up, threw the sheets off and got out of bed. She walked to the door and opened it, colliding to Damon. She looked up at his abnormal reproachful face and she swallowed. “What do you think you’re doing?” he asked serious. “You really think you can just walk downstairs? Get back to bed, now”
Elena made a few reluctant steps backwards. What had she done wrong? Why was Damon angry with her? Today, nonetheless. When her lips started trembling Damon took her arm and pulled her closer.
“I’m just kidding” he said with a smile. When Elena realized Damon was playing with her she slapped him on the arm. “Damon, you moron! Don’t do that!”
“I’ll make it up to you” Damon said and he conjured a small package out of his pocket. Elena accepted it and opened the black box.
“I can make it smaller if it’s too large” Damon hastily said.
“And I can remove the name on it… if you want” Damon added. “It used to be my mom’s”
Elena looked up. “This was your mom’s? And you’re giving it to me?” She forced the box back in Damon’s hands. “I can’t take it. It was your mom’s”
“Elena, do you like it?”
Elena stared at the bracelet with cachorro, filhote de cachorro eyes and nodded slightly with her head.
“Then take it and wear it”
Damon carefully picked the bracelet out the box and took Elena’s wrist. He enclosed it with the bracelet with little diamonds.
“Well, it definitely looks a lot better on your arm than in this box” Damon said with a wink.
“I don’t know what to say” Elena said breathless. “Thank you, Damon” She gave him a kiss on the cheek.
“I think it’s seguro to go downstairs” Damon said. “Stefan should be ready preparing your surprise breakfast”
Elena widened her eyes. “Stefan’s making surprise breakfast?”
They heard Stefan shouting from out of the kitchen. “Damon, snitch, shut up!”
Damon very consciously avoided Elena’s stare. “Oops, that really just slipped out”
