Bonnie woke up difficult. She opened her eyes. Everything was blurry and every limb on her body hurt. She felt a firm grip around her arm and someone pulled her up. Her head rocked back and forth when the same person slapped her in the face. “Booonniiee” a male voice sang. Damon, Bonnie realized. Slowly the events of the night before hit her fuzzy brain. Katherine, the attack, Damon’s anger. The room became meer clear and she saw Damon standing right in front of her. “You’re awake” he said. “It’s about time” He made a step backwards, giving Bonnie the chance to catch a breath. “What do u want?” she asked scared to death but with a whiff of bitterness in her voice. Damon held his head diagonally. “I want to kiss you, make love with you, screw u until there’s nothing left to screw” he answered sarcastic and bitter. “What do u think I want? I want u to take away whatever’s keeping me in check. I want u to undo the spell u put on Elena” Bonnie shook her head, looking desperate. “I can’t, Damon, I’m sorry” Damon grabbed her neck, pressing her wound. She screamed. “And why can’t you?” he asked his voice caught in his throat. “The only way to free u is to kill me” Bonnie started and as a pleased smile appeared on Damon’s face Bonnies eyes filled with tears. “No, please, don’t” she begged. “I know u have every right to kill me, I deserved it. But think about Elena. She would never forgive u if u killed me… I know u love Elena” Without loosening his grip Damon answered: “Wow, even when she’s not around, u still find a way to use her as a persuasion” He let go of her and she walked away from him to the living room. She walked to the bookshelf where she got out a book. “I can’t undo the spell without being killed, but I can make it… lighter” she said, opening the book. Damon walked towards her. “What do u mean, lighter?” he asked suspicious. Bonnie browsed through the pages. “I can amplify your areas. So far u couldn’t go anywhere without me. I can change that, I can let u go wherever u want within this town” “Works for me, for now” Damon said. “And u can talk to whoever u want, even Elena. I won’t mind-torture you” Bonnie zei breathless. “Well, you’re so thoughtful” Damon commentaar gegeven sarcastic. “How about Elena? Do u have to die for that, too?” “No, with Elena it’s complicated. There’s no reverse spell, she has to snap out of it on her own terms” Bonnie explained. “I can help her with that” Damon mumbled. “I got it. I need to hold your hands for this” she zei carefully while she looked at Damon. Damon gave her his hands and looked away. This would all be soon over.
