Damon and Elena were standing in front of Bonnie’s house, waiting for Bonnie to open up. Elena looked from the door to Damon, seeming to be uncomfortable. “Maybe you should let me do the talking” she suggested. “Like you said, you and Bonnie are not the best friends” Damon pursed his lips. “Suuuure, all you want” he said with a smirk and a wink. The door went open and Bonnie looked at them. “Hi, Elena” she said and hugged her friend. She looked at Damon as if he was dirt. “Sorry, but I’m not going to hug you” “But that would’ve been the highlight of my day!” Damon said sarcastic, which gained him an angry eyeshot from Elena. “Don’t play games with me, Damon” Bonnie said. “Say what you want and get the hell out of here” Elena made a step forward. “We need your help” she showed her the necklace. “We need you to put a spell on this, so it can protect people from the sun” Bonnie’s face stiffened. “By people you mean vampires, I assume” she said with a cold voice that didn’t suit her, but that usually was reserved for Damon. “Well, yeah” Elena said reluctantly. Bonnie shook her head. “I can’t believe you’re asking me this, Elena. I’m going against all of my believes if I do this. Last time I helped them I almost lost Jeremy! I won’t go through that again!” she said upset. She turned to Damon. “This is your idea, isn’t it? Of course it is. Only you can come up with something that tactless. You really have no shame-whoah” Bonnie lost her balance and Damon caught her by her shoulders, pushing her back on her feet. “Bonnie, are you okay?” Elena asked concerned. She nodded. “Damon, let’s go” Elena said softly. “She’s right. We were wrong to ask her” She and Damon turned around and walked away.
“Wait!” they heard a few seconds later. They turned around again, waiting for Bonnie to catch up with them. “Who do you want to protect?” she asked serious.
“It’s not that I want it” Elena started. “But we have to protect Katherine. We need her to find Stefan back. She knows Klaus better than Damon and I”
“How do you know she’s not playing tricks with you? Maybe she will lead you right in his arms” Bonnie said.
“I survived him once. Facing him again is a risk I’ll have to take” Elena answered.
“And what if Damon and Katherine are cooperating in killing you? Offering you to Klaus to get Stefan back?” Bonnie continued.
“I can’t speak for Katherine, but I know I can trust Damon” Elena said.
“Why?” Bonnie asked unbelieving.
Elena looked at Damon and he looked back right in her eyes. “I have my reasons” she softly said.
