"It's not that bad. Just think of it as a minor complication."

"Minor complication? Minor complication?! More like global crisis! Oh my god Jeremy sometimes you really don't think!" I paced up and down the living room, running an angry hand through my hair repeatadly.

No way would I do this! Damon told the council about Katherine, and they wanted to kill her. When they heared about her "fasination" with me, they wanted to use me as bait. Damon told me and I was furious.

Damon and Jeremy had both been trying to calm me down for the past ten minutes. They had given up trying to get me to stop pacing and stood infront of the couch. I glanced at Jeremy and stood still. He looked hurt and I felt bad.

"Jer... I'm sorry... It's just... I don't..." A choked sob escaped my throat and Jeremy opened his arms for me.

"Come're" In a flash I was infront of him and threw my arms around his neck. I sobbed into his shirt.

"J-jerem-y... I-I'm a-afrai-d of h-her." Another choked sob escaped my throat.

"I know babe, I know." I pulled my face away and looked at Damon through teary eyes.

"P-please d-don't mak-e m-me." Damon let out a huff of air.

"Fuck." He mumbled. He grabbed me and I whined in protest. Damon sat me down on the couch and sat on the coffee table. I looked at the floor.

"Lizzie." I kept looking at the floor. "Look at me." Damon put his hand under my chin and made me look into his eyes. "Hey." I pulled my face away. He grabbed my chin again and kept my face in front of his.

"Elizabeth." I calmed down."I am not going to make you do anything. This is your choice, not mine. If you don't want to do it, if you're afraid of Katherine, that she's going to hurt you, you can say no. But, I would not let her even touch you. No one's going to be watching us. I can use my speed and strength." I whimpered.

"I don't want to dissapoint you." Jeremy sat down next to me and wrapped an arm around me. He ran a finger over my small comforting circles. I leaned into his touch.

"You're not going to dissapoint me Piccolo. Its your choice. I will agree with whatever you say. You're my baby sister. I would never let you do anything if I thought it would hurt you." Jeremy kissed the side of my head. 

"I'll back you up, every step of the way." He said sweetly. 

I don't know what made me do what I did next. But I swear it wasen't me. I wasn't controling myself. I don't know what it was but it defenatly. Wasn't. Me.

I would never slap Damon across the face, push Jeremy on the floor, and run outside into the pooring rain. It was a stupid thing to do. 

Damon and Jeremy shouted after me and I just kept running. I wasn't sure where I was running but I ignored their shouts. What confused me was that I knew damn well Damon could catch me eaisly, why was he running at human speed?

Why was I running at human speed? 

Why was I running?

In the rain? 

Oh my god it was freezing! 

I skidded to a stop and wrapped my arms around myself. I was soaking wet and my teeth were chatering. Jeremy and Damon caught up to me and they both looked confused.

"What was that?" Damon asked. 

"I don't know." I moved my bangs away from my face shakily. Jeremy wrapped his arms around me.
