Matt tried to get the front door open, but failed, while Bonnie tried to call someone. When after her sixth attempt no one had picked up, she had to fight the urge to throw her cell into the wall. She turned to Keith. “Can you try the phone, please?” she asked a little irritated. Keith was just sitting there, being useless. Keith stood slowly and walked to the phone. He picked up the horn, but heard nothing. “The phone’s dead” he noted, sounding not very surprised. He walked back to Bonnie. Matt had gone upstairs to see if he could open one of the windows.
“Maybe we should stay in” Keith started careful. “I know Veronica wouldn’t try to hurt us. We’re human. I think she’s actually trying to keep us safe”
“What does that even matter? She has Jeremy! She shot him! You really think I’m going to stay here, while she’s doing God knows what to him?” Bonnie snapped angry. They heard footsteps as Matt returned. Bonnie looked hopeful at him, but he shook his head.
“No one’s picking up. Worst case scenario, Veronica got to them” Bonnie made a calculation. “But she wouldn’t get to Damon so easily. He’s not going to leave Elena’s side”
Matt conjured his phone and dialed Damon’s number.
“Matt, what the hell is going on?” Damon spoke the moment he answered. Matt let out a sigh of relief and Bonnie thanked God for finally being on their side.
“It’s Veronica” Matt answered quickly. “She invited us over, but now-” The signal died and Matt looked at his phone. “Oh, come on, you have to be kidding me” He looked at the others.
“My phone’s dead, too” Bonnie said defeated.
“I don’t have a cell phone” Keith pulled his shoulder apologetic. Bonnie and Matt traded glances. Who on earth didn’t own a cell phone?
“So, what, we’re stuck here? I tried to break the windows, but she even made that impossible. Maybe she’s working with a witch” Matt suggested. Bonnie frowned, Matt had given her something to think about.
“I think I have an idea” she said slowly and mysterious.
