segundo dia of school
Come on, Elena, only twenty minutos left. You will go through this torture. That’s what Elena kept repeating in herself, while checking her watch every five minutes. She felt like Alaric was dragging his class out, but maybe that was because she couldn’t wait to go início to meet a certain someone. Not that she couldn’t live without him for a little while, but their relationship was still early on and they hadn’t seen each other since breakfast.
She jumped up when someone tapped her arm and looked aside. Caroline passed her a note. She opened it and read: ‘Seen Bonnie?’ She looked up and shook her head. She checked her watch again. Ten minutes.
“Miss Gilbert, are we stalling you? You need to be somewhere right now?”
Elena blushed and swallowed. “No, mister Saltzman”
Alaric carried on with his teaching and nine minutos later the school sino rang. Elena put away her books and walked to Alaric.
“Can I help you, miss Gilbert?” Alaric asked while he put away his stuff as well. Elena raised her eyebrows. “Can you knock it off with the miss Gilbert crap?”
Alaric crossed his arms and looked at Elena.
“You should go talk to Damon. He misses you” Elena said. Alaric averted his head. “Oh, well, last time I checked Damon has a phone himself and I’m pretty sure he knows how to use it” he said.
Elena shrugged. “He thinks you haven’t forgiven him yet for stabbing Jeremy” she explained. Alaric looked back at her, a confused expression on his face. “What? Why? I know he didn’t do it. It was Emily” he said.
“Then call him and tell him” Elena said soft, laying her hand on Alaric’s arm. Alaric shook his head. “I can’t” he said. “Why not?” Elena asked desperate. Alaric closed his schoolbag and sighed. “I should’ve listened to him. When I thought he had tried to kill Jeremy he wanted to explain. I saw the confusion on his face, but I didn’t pay much attention to it. I should’ve trusted him. If I wouldn’t have send him away those things might have never happened to him. I’m just as responsible as Bonnie and Stefan”
Elena grabbed Alaric’s arms and shook him. “Are you being serious? Come on, Ric, you know that’s not true. Damon isn’t angry with you, not at all. You have to stop beating yourself up like that”
She let go of him. “You know what? Why don’t you come over tonight, so you and Damon can talk”
Alaric frowned. “I thought today was the dia you and Damon met a ano ago”
Elena made a step backwards. “How do you know that?” she asked surprised. “Caroline” was all Alaric said. “Naturally” Elena sighed obvious. “Well, anyways we’re not doing something big. It’s just going to be me and Damon” She smiled as she said his name.
“Yeah, I wouldn’t count on it” Alaric said and he searched in his escrivaninha, mesa drawer. He pulled something out and showed it to Elena. It was a flyer saying DAMON AND ELENA ANNIVERSARY PARTY AT THE BOARDING HOUSE TONIGHT AT TEN. “Caroline’s been handing this out this morning and during lunch break and I’m pretty sure I saw a pile of them lying in the Grill last night”
