Elena was sure she hadn't cried this much in months. Not since the accident, anyway. Her throat burned with the effort of trying to hold it in, hold back the almost violent sobs that kept taking over every time she thought about it, but it was turning out to be impossible. Every time she cleared her head long enough to realize how stupid it was, sitting in her room thinking about how much everything hurt, reality seemed to crash over her all over again. Long after Bonnie left, she still sat curled up in her blankets and cried.

It wasn't until the sun started to shine through her window that she realized she hadn't slept, and Elena forced herself out of bed. Her throat was dry, eyes red, and it took three glasses of water to take away the dizziness of dehydration. Jeremy wasn't awake yet and she wasn't sure if her aunt was even home, but soon she was back up in her room, changing into her old cheer practice shorts and sneakers, and left her house through the front door. Elena wasn't much of a runner; cheerleading was really the only sport she had ever played. But for now she just wanted to run, tucking her hands into the sleeves of her hoodie and letting her feet carry her.

By the time she needed to stop to catch her breath, her sweatshirt had been taken off in favor of a tank top, and her ponytail was hardly holding her hair back anymore. Elena almost sat down right where she stopped, but then realized that she had ended up in front of Stefan's house. The same place she always seemed to go to when when she needed to get away lately. Her feet were heavy as she walked back towards the main road, though she didn't seem to notice just how cold the November air was on her skin. It didn't matter. She knew she wasn't supposed to go there anymore, and it was only going to make things worse if Stefan noticed her outside.

He spoke before he had a chance to over-analyze what he was going to say. "There are many things to sort out. As much as picking up and leaving immediately would be easier, it's unfortunately not in the cards for me as it seems to have been for Damon." After giving his best attempt at a smile he folded his arms and waited. He wasn't sure what exactly he was waiting for, however. Perhaps a rewind button...

"Oh." Well, that was a stunningly boring answer. Elena Gilbert, ever eloquent in awkward situations. It didn't help that his smile made her brain shut off, but she had to learn to ignore that feeling. "Um. So Damon's gone already? I thought the sky seemed a little brighter today," she joked, looking down at his feet while she smiled. This was pathetic. The guy she was clearly in love with hadn't left town like he said he would, and she was trying to make small talk with him.

"Do you want to go for a walk, maybe? Or just sit and talk somewhere?" she said, inwardly adding 'please?' and her expression showed it.
