Bonnie was sitting in Indian style on the floor of Caroline’s room. A book was lying open and three candles were surrounding it. She vowed her hands and whispered the words on the pages.
The front door slowly opened and someone slowly walked upstairs. The latch of the door in Caroline’s room went down and the door slowly opened.
“I thought you couldn’t do magic anymore”
“Oh my God!” Bonnie shrieked. She quickly got up and turned on the light. She bent and blew out the candles. “What the hell are you doing here?” she whispered loud and reproaching.
“I missed you at the Homecoming dance” Keith replied.
“No, I mean what are you doing out of the clinic?” Bonnie clarified. “And how do you know about Homecoming?”
“Is this Caroline’s room?” Keith avoided Bonnie’s question. He saw a picture of Caroline, Bonnie and Elena.
“Yes, and her mom’s asleep, so if you don’t keep it down a little…” Bonnie insisted.
“Bonnie?” Liz called.
“Damn it” Bonnie mumbled and she hurried to the door. Before she opened the door she turned around. “Get under the bed”
She watched Keith crawling under the bed and then opened the door.
“Is everything alright? I thought I heard you screaming” Liz said concerned.
“Oh” Bonnie laughed nervous. “There was a spider…Big one…But I killed it, so I’m okay now”
“Oh, sure, alright then” Liz nodded. She was about to walk away, when she sniffed. She rotated her head to the center of the room. “Did you lit those candles? Bonnie, you shouldn’t make fire inside Caroline’s room. Or any room. We trust you to behave” Without awaiting an answer she turned around and left.
Keith came from under the bed. “I should go” he said soft. He walked to the door and wanted to leave, when Bonnie called him back.
“Stay” Bonnie said. “Caroline won’t be home for a long time and I like your company. So, if you want, you can stay”
