Katherine was sitting on Caroline’s bed, a blood bag in her hand. Her stomach was healed and she was wearing one of Caroline’s tops. When she had finished the bag she gave it back to Caroline.
“Thank you” she said, though it took her quite some effort. They heard a car park. “I think your mother’s home”
Liz had been working really late. Caroline walked to the window and shoved the curtains. “No, it’s not mom” she rotated her head to the bed. “It’s Matt”
Katherine nodded and got up. “Yeah, I need to go home anyway”
“No, te can stay” Caroline said. “I’ll just talk to him outside”
As Katherine sank back on the letto Caroline rushed outside.
“What’s going on?” she asked Matt.
“Hello to te too” Matt detto a little annoyed.
Not impressed da Matt’s mood Caroline said: “Why are te here, Matt? It’s 10.30 pm”
“Your mother told me what happened. She told me te were abducted da Stefan and some girl named Amber” Matt said.
Caroline crossed her arms and looked away.
“So, it’s true?” Matt asked to make sure.
Caroline averted her face to him. “Yes, Matt, if it makes te happy, yes, it’s true”
“Why didn’t te tell me?” Matt asked a little hurt.
“What does it matter?” Caroline exclaimed raising her hands. “There’s nothing te can do about it”
“I know” Matt detto soft, taking Caroline’s hands in his. “It’s just…the idea of te being there all alone…it breaks my heart”
“Well, te don’t have to worry” Caroline said. “Because I wasn’t alone…Tyler was with me”
Matt abruptly let go of Caroline and made a few steps backwards. “I…I have to go” he mumbled and he got back into his car.
Caroline watched him leave, feeling sorry for hurting him. But he’d asked her and she couldn’t lie.
When Matt’s car was out of sight she returned to the house. She went back to the room and saw Katherine had fled.
