|Seeing the phantom emerging in front of Antonio, they all started running to them. The phantom had already started feeding on Antonio's soul. Stefan and Caroline immediately ran with their vampire speed. Stefan hit the phantom, and Caroline took Antonio a little far. He was shaking like having some kind of fit. Phantom reeled with Stefan's crash. Stephan called his wings while clearly not believing they will work. Indeed they didn't work, so he remained behind and stayed at a distance. Phantom turned to Stefan and made an eery scream. He looked at it in a challenging way. Then took slow steps backwards, luring it to Damon. Stephan intended to flee, but Damon caught him.
Damon: "Wait! You're bait!"
Stephan: "My wings won't work, find someone who is not angel to be the bait!"
Damon: (seeing he has a point) "Fine, go."
Upon this Stephan turned around and started running. Phantom saw it, and started floating to him rapidly. Stefan tried to stop it, but it went through him. While he was confused, Bonnie yelled a magic word.
The ground under the phantom started burning. It stopped, but apparently it wasn't hurting. Phantom then flew to them. Damon immediately went between Bonnie and the phantom.
Damon: "And this is called vampire magic!" (pointed the flamethrower to the phantom) "Incendia!"
As soon as the fire hit the phantom, it screamed with an insanely high frequency that incapacitated everyone. They all took their hands to cover their ears, but it wasn't working. The sound was too much that they couldn't even open their eyes. Then suddenly the scream ended. When they looked, the phantom was gone. They looked at each other with relief. Then Bonnie looked at Antonio and ran to him.
They all rushed near him. Caroline crawled back near him. They all gathered around him. His shaking was now out of control. Bonnie held his head protectively.
Bonnie: "What's happening to him?"
Tyler: "That thing was sucking his soul!"
Caroline: "I hope it's not permanent!"
Stefan: (pushed everyone backwards) "Just give him some space, let him breath!"
Bonnie: (while crying, looked at Stefan) "How do we save him?"
Stefan bit his wrist.
Caroline: "He doesn't have any body damage?"
Stefan: "I don't see anyone else coming up with anything." (to Bonnie) "Hold him still!"
Bonnie: (watched Stefan as he fed Antonio his blood. She was crying bad) "God, please let this work!"
Caroline took her hands to her mouth nervously and anxiously. As blood slowly when down Antonio's throat, he slowly passed out.
Caroline: "Nothing's wrong with him, it's not the gangs."
Mr. Wilder: "Do you know what happened?"
Caroline: "We don't. Doctors say he's in some sort of a shock, he's.. he has nothing wrong, he just.. won't wake up."
Mr. Wilder took off his coat and hung it on the coat rack.
Mr. Wilder: "Why would he go out?" (Caroline raised her shoulders, meaning she has no idea) "Where did you guys find him?"
Caroline: "Town square."
Mr. Wilder: "What's there?"
Caroline: "Just the square." (Mr. Wilder sat down to a chair in the room and looked at his son anxiously) "I'll call the doctor, he can.."
He nodded. Upon this Caroline left the room.
Stefan: "You're chipper."
Damon: "It's a happy morning. We saved the night, we saved the boy. Phantom's gone. I can call Natalie back."
Stefan: (with a smile) "Hmm." (got serious) "You're sure the phantom's gone?"
Damon: "What do you mean?"
Stefan: "We didn't see a thing. We don't know if it's really destroyed."
Damon: "Are you kidding me? That kind of scream was the obvious sign of death."
Stefan: "But we have no other clue. We can't assume, that thing is dangerous and it could still be around."
Damon: "Around doing what? A phantom needs to feed on spirits. And seeing as sheriff tells me that the town center is pretty much normal and there is no black ghosts roaming and killing people, I'd put it on the success list."
Damon: "Come on! Since when I'm the optimist one and you're the pessimist one? Did the Earth shift on it's axis?"
Stefan: "Technically it did, but.."
Damon: "Shut up."
They both drank their drinks with a smile on their faces.
Matt opened his eyes. The visible side of his body outside of the blanket was naked. He looked to his left to see Sue, who was half naked too. She was gazing and smiling. He smiled and turned to her. They held each other's hands with love and looked at each other.
Sue: "Is every morning going to be like this?"
Matt looked at her, wondering if that was a proposal in a subtle way.
Matt: "Are you..?"
Sue: (smiled) "I am! If you want too."
Matt: "I want it more than anything in the world!"
Sue: "Then whenever you're ready, my answer is always yes!"
Matt looked at her with love. Then they kissed. As they were kissing, Sue's phone started buzzing. They chuckled.
Matt: (jokingly) "I hate that phone!"
Sue smiled and turned around to get her phone from her bag. But when he took it, her face got serious.
Sue: (looked at Matt) "It's my dad." (answered call) "Dad?"
Aiden: "Hey, where are you?"
Sue: "Ah, you know, still at Matt's."
Aiden: "You stayed there all night?"
Sue: "Yea, I was.. sleeping on the couch."
Matt raised his eyebrows upon this, as it was obviously a big lie. Sue looked at him indicating no way she can tell her father the truth.
Sue: "What happened?"
Father: "You know, the curfew's over, so I kinda need my car back."
Sue: (straightened and looked at Matt) "Is it? .. Ah, sure. Yeah, I'll be right there. .. Bye!"
Matt: (after the closed the phone, curiously) "What is it?"
Sue: "Curfew's over!"
Matt: (in shock) "Shit, I'm late!"
Sam: "What do you think this place is? Your father's place which you can walk in or out whenever you want?"
Matt: "Sam, I'm sorry, I didn't know the curfew was over."
Sam: "You know I'm starting to be fed up with your excuses. Practice hours, rough match, I didn't know the curfew was over. The only reason I'm not firing you is out of my respect to your girlfriend."
Matt: "What is your problem with me? I work here more than anyone, especially those girls you bring at nights and pay twice of what I get."
Sam: "You don't like your pay, you can always leave."
Matt: "I didn't say that."
Sam: "You're paid half, because you work part time. And they draw customers. What do you do?"
Matt: "Which customers we're talking about right now?" (they looked around. There was no one in the grill except the two of them) "Look, I'm not going to make a career out of being a busboy. I work here because I need the job to pay my bills. I only have three weeks until graduation, three weeks. After that I'll leave here and you can throw a party. Just please don't make this graduation a misery to me."
Sam: (looked at him for a while) "Alright, fine. Three weeks. I'll leave you alone until then and consider that your graduation present. But you have to be careful about your hours."
Matt: "Yes boss. Thank you."
June: "You know this could be a lot faster if you just use your super speed."
Elena: "Driving makes me feel more like human and less like Forrest Gump, so.." (June smiled upon this) "Where do you wanna go?"
June: "I don't know, I've only been here for a week."
Elena: "I've only been here for eighteen years."
Then she offered her hand to June, meaning she can read her memories and see if there is a place she'd like to go. June held her hand with her both hands and closed her eyes. After a while she finally opened her eyes and left Elena's hand.
June: "Take me to the hills Stefan took you."
June: "This is it?"
Elena: "No, but this isn't a 4x4, so we've gotta do the rest on foot."
June: "Says the vampire!"
Elena: "Hey! When I came here I was a human too. No complaining. Let's go."
June smiled and they started walking. As they arrived to the falls, June looked at it fascinated.
Elena: "When Stefan took me here, it was the first time I actually knew what I really wanted from life. At the hills, I could see everything much more clear."
June: "But it still didn't help you."
Elena: "It helped for a while."
June: "What do you mean?"
Elena: "The day Stefan took me here wasn't the day I became a vampire."
June: "But I thought.. you died, right?"
Elena: "I did. But my father sacrificed his life to save mine. Bonnie transferred his life force to me, I remained human, and he.." (Elena couldn't complete the sentence, but June understood anyway. They looked at each other. June was looking sadly) "But my humanity didn't last a year. I died, and this time I became a vampire. And my father died for nothing."
June: (sadly) "Elena, I'm sorry, I.. I didn't mean to.."
Elena: (interrupted her with a reassuring smile) "No, you didn't." (looked at the hill) "I like this place." (looked at June) "Come on."
They started walking again.
Bonnie: "I know you're here."
Tyler showed himself.
Tyler: (with a smile) "I think I just had a deja-vu." (they looked at each other) "Nice to see you Bonnie."
Bonnie: "I wish I could say the same for you, Klaus."
Tyler: "If memory serves, you were the one who summoned me."
Bonnie: "I'm starting to regret it."
Tyler: (laughed) "Oh I'm sure you already do!" (looks at her for a moment) "So is it true? Elena's new cousin will be my key to creating hybrids?"
Bonnie: "That's what the angels said. With the proper spell, her body will serve just like Elena's. But you know to create hybrids you need blood from your own body."
Tyler: "Then why am I still in this one?"
Bonnie: "Listen, Klaus. When I revived Jeremy I used the power of 100 dead witches! By myself, I'm not that strong. I need a hot spot, but whenever I find one, the spirits won't let me harness the power."
Tyler: "What happened to "The spirits don’t get to tell me what to do anymore, I’m done getting pushed around by all of you"? Upsetting them is now paying off, isn't it?"
Bonnie: "I'm working on it. I saved you because I love my friends. So don't think I'm gonna let you spend the eternity in one of them's body."
Tyler: "Then I suppose you should be quick. Life is short."
Bonnie looked at him weirdly.
Elena: "Wow, I had no idea how this place was in midday!"
June: (pointed some point) "That's the falls, right?"
Elena: "What falls?"
June: "Mystic one."
Elena: (chuckled) "No, that's.. it's at someplace else, we can't see it from here."
June walked to the other side of the hills and looked far away.
June: "This is really a small town." (Elena smiled and walked near her. By the time she arrived, June had realized something) "What's that?"
Elena: (looked at where she pointed. When she saw, her looks changed. She was amazed) "Oh my god! I can believe it can be seen from here!"
June: (looked at her) "What is it?"
Elena: "It's the old Salvatore house. The one Stefan and Damon lived in 1864. When I first found out that Stefan was a vampire, he took me there to tell me about his past."
June: "That's brave of you!"
Elena: (smiled) "Why is that?"
June: "A vampire takes you to the middle of nowhere. It sounds really creepy."
Elena: "Well when you put it that way.. But I trusted him. Somehow I just knew that.. he wouldn't do anything to hurt me."
June looked at Elena with a smile, but while looking at her, she suddenly saw something else behind her. Her looks changed, and filled with fear.
June: (terrified) "Elena!"
Elena: "What?" (noticed June was looking at some place else, so she looked there. And she also freaked with the sight of the phantom, slowly floating towards them. It was frighteningly close to them. She immediately turned to it) "Oh my god!"
June: "What is it?"
Elena: "It's the phantom!"
June: "The one that you destroyed last night?"
June: "It doesn't look so destroyed! What do we do?"
Elena: "Just.. don't make any sudden moves!"
June: (her fear intensified) "It's coming right at me!"
Elena: "I noticed. Hold on!"
With a sudden move, Elena rushed to June with vampire speed, grabbed her and ran again with her vampire speed. The phantom made an eery scream, then rapidly followed them. It was frighteningly faster than Elena, as it started to catch up. June noticed it and yelled.
June: "It's getting closer!"
Elena took a split second to look at her back. June was right, the phantom was faster than her. Realizing running would be pointless, she suddenly stopped, left June and rushed back to phantom. But as she tried a flying punch, unlike what she hoped she passed right through the phantom and fell behind it. Elena desperately yelled.
Elena: "June! RUN!"
June tried to run, but it was like her joints were locked. They wouldn't move. She looked up and came face to face with phantom. With fear, she screamed. But before the phantom could suck her soul, they heard a voice from a little behind.
Voice: "Wings of destruction!"
The phantom exploded within the second, and June's joints became loose and she fell. Both she and Elena looked at where the sound came from. It was pure blood angels David, Peter and Amy. Based on his looks, it seemed like Peter was the one who used wings of destruction, as he looked like it drained a lot of power from him.
June stood up and faced them with fear.
David: "Hello there!"
Elena immediately ran between her and the angels.
Elena: "What're you doing here?"
By that time June, who was behind Elena, was thinking what she could do. Then she held Elena's arm, closed her eyes, and tried to do something that she wasn't sure she could do. But she had managed to do it, as now Damon and Elena's minds were connected, despite he was not in her sight. Damon, who was with Stefan in the boarding house at the time, oddly looked away. Stefan noticed the change in his looks.
David's echoing voice inside Damon's head: "Let's not make this any harder than it has to be. All we want is the girl!"
Damon: "Pure bloods are back. And I know where they are!"
They both rushed with their vampire speed.
Bonnie: "Thanks for staying until I came."
Caroline: "Don't mention it."
Mr. Wilder stood up too. Caroline and Bonnie hugged and then left each other.
Bonnie: "How is he?"
Mr. Wilder: "Doctor said what Caroline already told me. He just.. he just won't wake up." (Bonnie went near him and they hugged each other too. Caroline looked at them with a sad smile. Then they left each other) "Bonnie, what I'm about to ask may sound profoundly inappropriate, but I have to ask. Do you know what might have happened to him?"
Bonnie: (shook her head) "No."
Mr. Wilder: "It's just.. He has been saying things about you."
Mr. Wilder: "He didn't tell me everything, but.. he was convinced that you were keeping a secret from him." (Bonnie moved uncomfortably. Caroline turned to them anxiously) "So maybe he went out to discover that, I.. What were you doing last night?"
Bonnie: "Nothing, I was at home."
Caroline took a step to them. Bonnie, as if she sensed it, made a move with her hand, telling her not to. Caroline saw it and stopped. Mr. Wilder was walking around the room.
Mr. Wilder: (suddenly turned to Bonnie) "Why else would he go out?"
Bonnie: (angrily) "Are you saying that I did this?"
Mr. Wilder: (came to his senses with Bonnie's tone) "No. Sorry, I didn't mean to snap at you."
Caroline: (walked near him and held his shoulders gently) "Let's get you some coffee."
Mr. Wilder: (looked at Caroline and nodded) "Alright. I could use some walk."
As they were walking outside, Caroline and Bonnie looked at each other. Then they turned around the corner and disappeared. Bonnie then focused on the door and it started to close slowly. After it's closed, she came near Antonio. The beep sounds of the machine was annoyingly depressing. She sat near him on the bed, and looked at his face. Then slowly took his hand. She held it with her both hands, and tried to do something with her magic. Soon her body started shaking, and in a short while her nose started to bleed, indicating she was putting a lot of power to what she was doing. She forced herself for a little more while. But then couldn't keep up anymore and stopped the spell. She wiped the blood off her nose, then looked at Antonio sadly this time.
Bonnie: "I don't if you hear me. But I've experienced enough to know that there is no such thing as fairy tales, or happy endings. I just wish you spoke to me. I wish I let you in. I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I guess I'm kind of angry with myself. Part of this is my fault. I once told you that I trusted you. I meant it. So when you wake up, I'll tell you everything." (she leaned and kissed him from his lips. Then she took her head to his ear and whispered) "Please come back to me!"
She kissed his forehead. Then sniffed. It was too upsetting for her to see him like that. She looked at him one last time, then headed out.
David: (took a threatening step towards Elena) "I understand you do not mercy yourself. We wouldn't either."
Elena: "Then why am I still alive?"
David: (angrily) "Let's just say we don't want to spill any more blood. You killed Thom, we'll not seek revenge. Just give us the girl, and we'll leave in peace."
Elena: "You'll have to get through me!"
David: "I would so enjoy it."
Suddenly out of nowhere Stefan and Damon come with their vampire speed and stop near Elena.
Stefan: "We wouldn't!"
David: (startled) "Where the hell did you two come from!?"
Amy: (looked at June with surprise) "It's their psychic. She did it."
David: (looked at June) "Without any of them in your sight? That's raw power!"
Elena: "Just leave!"
David: "We would love to, but we don't want to leave without June."
Damon: "Like we will give her to you!"
Amy: "Like you have a choice!"
Damon: "Wanna try me?"
Amy: "Bring it on!"
David: "Amy calm down, we didn't come here to fight."
Stefan: "Alright, then what're you doing here?"
David: "I'm here to find a common ground."
Elena: "Get it through your heads, you'll never get her!"
Amy: "We just saved her life."
Elena: "No one asked you to!"
David: "What she's trying to say is, you may not realize yet, but we're on the same side with you."
Damon: "You're on the same side with us?"
Stefan: "Why should we even believe that?"
David: "You want to protect June. We want to protect June. That makes us on the same side."
Elena: "Protect her? You want to kill her!"
David: "I don't know who gave you that idea," (he said this with a voice indicating he knows exactly who it is) ".. but it's wrong."
Stefan: "Then what do you want with her?"
David: "We don't necessarily need her. What we need is her blood."
Elena: "Her blood?"
Damon: "That sounds friendly."
David: "But I suppose we can also take it here."
Damon: "You're not taking anything!"
David: "You love to make everything difficult, don't you!"
Stefan: "Oh you have no idea."
Damon: (oddly looked at Stefan) "Who's side are you on?"
David: "Look, our intention was never to hurt her. We just wanted to take her, because we want to protect her."
Elena: "There's that word again, protect."
Stefan: "She doesn't need any protection."
Amy: "She does. More than you realize."
Elena: "Who's threatening her? Besides you."
Amy: "For the last time, we're not threatening her!"
Stefan: "Alright. Let's consider that for a minute we believe you. Who're you protecting her from?"
Amy and David looked at each other.
Amy: "We have to tell them. We can't protect her by ourselves anymore, we need them."
Elena looked confused. David looked at them.
David: "Something like this happened before. And it will happen again. There are people who will come for her. And others like her."
Elena: "Alright, who are coming for her?"
David: "The question you should be asking is, what are coming for her."
Elena: (with confusion) "What?"
Damon: "Alright, this past week was kind of confusing for me. In addition to the vampires, werewolves and witches I already knew, now I have angels, psychics, and black ghosts added to the mix."
Damon: "So if you're gonna say that there's something else out there I'm just gonna go and hang myself."
David: "Actually there is something else out there. So far we didn't need to worry about them, because one of them was on our side."
Elena: "On your side?"
David: "She was working with us, for she betrayed her master, who we had opposite goals with."
Elena: "What happened to her?"
David: "We don't know. We haven't heard from her for a long time."
Stefan: "What was she? Or.. what are they?"
David: "A fox."
Elena: "Fox? As in.. animal?"
David: "More like werefox. Also known as shapeshifters. But in their own culture, they call themselves kitsune."
David: "Japanese word for fox."
Damon: "Wow wow wow! They're from Japan?"
Elena: "Why would people from Japan wanna kill June, that doesn't make sense?"
David: "Actually when you know the story, it makes perfect sense. They are coming for her because of you. The doppelganger."
Elena: "I understand. When I died June became the only way to use my energy. But then why kill her?"
David: "That is the reason they want to kill her. When you became a vampire, you lost your doppelganger essence, but those who share the same blood with you serve as anchors."
Amy: "And with no anchor, the essence will be forced to return to you."
David: "But since you're a vampire now, you're not compatible to hold such power."
Elena: "So I'll just lose it again. What's the point?"
David: "There is a way. Their master, Inari, wants to use the doppelganger to enhance her own power. But the thing about doppelgangers is, their energy become maximum when they turn 20. That's why you never met Inari or any other kitsunes your all life. They've been waiting all this time."
Elena: "But then why come now? I became a vampire, so my energy's not getting any stronger!"
David: "I did say there is a way. And that way is to kill June."
Elena: "I.. I don't understand."
David: "They want to make you age, until you become 20."
Stefan and Damon looked at each other with surprise.
Elena: "How're they gonna do that?"
David: "By turning you into human again."
Stefan: "Wait a second! Can they turn vampires into humans?"
David: "Yes they can. But in order to do that, every single person who shares the same blood with the said vampire must die. For almost half year now, the kitsune is all around the world, hunting down and killing people who come from the original doppelganger's bloodline."
David: "That's true. And they killed everyone. June is the last of them."
Elena got shivers and looked nervously. Suddenly Damon realized something else.
Damon: "Wait a second! What do you mean "they killed everyone?"
Stefan: (realized that David was looking at June sadly. Suddenly he understood too) "Oh my god!"
June: (she understood too. She spoke in some kind of denial) "What?"
David: "I'm so sorry June!"
Elena: (shocked) "Are you saying that June's parents were killed by kitsunes?"
David: "That's exactly what happened."
Everyone was shocked to hear this. June suddenly got out from Elena's behind.
June: (devastated) "No! No, that's not true! My parents died in a car accident!"
David: "They did. But it was staged. It wasn't an accident, it was a murder. And that's how they do it. By now all of you must have realized the events going on all around the world. Floods in Bulgaria, the fire in Charlotte. It's all kitsunes, travelling the world and killing people who are from Tatia's bloodline."
Elena: (in realization) "That's the fire that burned Antonio's house! It's why they moved here!"
David: "The kitsune finished it's work. And they're coming to Mystic Falls to make their final blow. They want to kill June, and they want to turn Elena into human."
June was crying. Damon hugged her. He and Stefan looked at each other.
Elena: "Then why do you wanna stop it?" (David and Stefan looked at Elena in confusion) "If they turn me into human, I'll grow older and my doppelganger energy will be stronger for you. So why stop it?"
David: "Because if we let them have you, they'll leave with you, and that'll be the end of it. The bloodline will be destroyed, Inari will sacrifice you. And all efforts of our ancestors throughout generations will be for nothing. We don't want that to happen."
Elena: (somewhat skeptical, but apparently convinced they don't want to harm June) "So you've been trying to protect the others too."
David: "We were. We tried to protect everyone we found. But we were either too late, or not strong enough. The kitsune has access to magic. Different than witches, but it's still magic. And that magic was able to penetrate our wings of protection."
June: (in tears, and her voice was cracked) "Was my parents among them?"
David: (looked at her sadly) "They were." (upon this June completely broke down and started crying her eyes out) "I'm sorry. But these are an entire species. We are only five people. Were."
Amy: "And that's why we need you. We tried it our way. But now we're even weaker with Thom gone. We might only stand a chance if we work together."
Elena looked at them convinced, but hesitant. Stefan came near her and held her shoulder. They looked at each other, and nodded.
Stefan: "How do we know you're telling us the truth?"
David looked weirdly, as if he had no answer that would satisfy them.
Amy: (pointed June) "She can tell."
David oddly looked at her. Then eyes turned to June. Damon made her look at him.
Damon: "Look you don't have to do this."
June didn't say anything. She left Damon, went near David, and held his hand. After a few seconds later, she couldn't hold herself anymore and started crying again. They all understood. Everything pure bloods told was true.
Stefan: "Alright. Now what do we do, how do we fight these.. kit.."
David: "The kitsune will typically come with an army, and strike with great power. We saw how you fought the last time, and I'm telling you, if you ever want to stand a chance against them, you need to step up your game big time."
Damon: "Last time we had to be cautious because if you died then there would be phantoms. I hope these things don't have any such rules."
David: "They don't. You can kill them all you want."
Damon: (smiled dangerously and rubbed his hands) "Music to my ears!"
Amy and Elena couldn't help smiling.
David: "But they still have strength in numbers, so we'll need all the help we can get. Your hybrid friend, your witch friend. Also I'm guessing after Thom died, angels must have left town. They need to come back too."
Damon: "How can they even be any help, they can't use their wings."
David: "Leave that to me."
Elena: "You know a way to unlock their wings?"
David: "Something like that."
David: "Not so fast."
They all stood there silently for a while. Then suddenly Stefan looked at David.
Stefan: "Is there a way to heal a phantom victim?"
David: "No I'm afraid. A phantom drains the soul out of a body. Without the soul, body cannot live."
Stefan: "But the thing is, this phantom couldn't drain the soul completely. When we saved him, he was still alive."
David: (surprised) "You saved someone from a phantom?"
Amy: "That's the first I'm hearing!"
Elena: "I wouldn't call it saving, he's unconscious ever since."
David: "Well if that's the case then there might be a way. Can I see him?"
Stefan and Elena looked at each other.
Mr. Wilder: "You're another doctor?"
David and Elena looked at each other. David didn't know what to do. Elena barely nodded to him, telling him to go with it. David spoke after a brief hesitation.
David: "Ah.. Yes.. I saw the.. results.. and.. I think that.. there might be something else going on."
Mr. Wilder: "Something else?"
David: "I.. I d.. I don't know!"
Mr. Wilder looked at him weirdly. Elena took her hand to her forehead and rubbed it in stress.
Elena: "Oh god!"
Caroline arrived quickly and made Mr. Wilder look at her.
Caroline: (with compulsion) "Let's leave the room together."
Bonnie: (as they were leaving) "I'll make sure no one else enters."
She and Elena nodded to each other, then they left the room. After they were gone, June locked the door. David looked at them.
David: "I'd heard about vampire compulsion but I'd never seen it in action. It looks really cool."
Elena: "Not if he was on vervain. Then you'd have to explain yourself or kill them."
David smiled nervously, and went to the middle of the room. He faced Antonio and spoke.
David: "Wings of purification!"
To both Elena and June's shock, two big snow white wings appeared.
Elena: "Wait what!? How can you even have wings, I thought we ripped them off!"
David: (angrily) "Yes you did." (hissingly) "And it hurt!" (with a normal voice) "But our kitsune helper has many talents. She found a way recover my wings."
Elena: (confused) "How?"
David: "I told you, they have access to a magic different then witches. That's how their powers work on us."
Elena: (with realization) "She's also the one that cloaked you, before you came to Mystic Falls."
David: (looked at her) "True."
Then he took a step back and waved his wings. Immediately Antonio's body rose with an impulse. Seeing that, June freaked out. Elena ran with her vampire speed and disconnected him from the heart rate monitor, fearing it might go crazy and draw nurses. Then rushed back to her old spot, away from where David's wings were aimed. Antonio started making awkward noises, like a combination of moaning and snoring. It continued this way for a while.
Elena: "What's happening to him?"
David: "The phantom made a big damage on him, and instead of part of his soul, he has a darkness now. I'm trying to purify his soul."
Elena: "Will that even fix him?"
David didn't reply. For one quick moment, Antonio's situation became even more freaky. Then suddenly it was over. He laid back to his bed comfortably.
David: "Wings off." (his wings disappeared and he turned to Elena) "I'm thinking an improper and timeless break between him and phantom made this to him. Had you been quicker this could have been avoided."
Elena: "Had we been later he would have been killed."
David: "True." (looked at Antonio and then looked back at Elena and June) "I did what I can. But honestly I have no experience on this, so I'm not sure if his soul can recover."
Elena: "What does that even mean?"
David: "It means don't get your hopes up yet." (a brief but disturbing silence took place) "Now you can call his father."
Elena: "What're you gonna tell him?"
David: "What he needs to hear."
June went ahead and opened the door. Bonnie was there, guarding the door. They spoke indistinctly for a while. Then the door opened completely and a while later Mr. Wilder and Caroline came back in.
David: (to Mr. Wilder) "I made some controls, and I don't see a point in keeping him here any longer."
Mr. Wilder: "What're you saying?"
David: "He'll be fine. Just not right away."
Mr. Wilder: "How long?"
David: "Depends. But I don't imagine it would take longer than a few days. Take him to home. It'll be much more comfortable for him there. It'll speed up his recovery."
Upon this everyone in the room smiled and sighed with relief. Mr. Wilder went near David and shook his hand.
Mr. Wilder: "Thank you doctor! How can I even repay you?"
David: (smiled) "Take good care of your son. That's all that matters."
David and Bonnie looked at each other from a distance. Bonnie said "thank you" with her lips. David smiled and nodded, meaning "you're welcome".
David: "You really managed to save that boy in the nick of time. And seeing that you scared the phantom.. I think we did underestimate you. I'm impressed."
They arrived near Elena's car and stopped.
Elena: (looked at David) "Look it's not gonna be my decision." (David oddly looked at her) "If you want June's blood, it's her who will decide whether to let you have it or not."
Upon this David looked at June. June was nervously playing with her fingers, apparently trying to make a decision. She eventually looked at David.
June: "I have one condition."
June: "I want you to help me. Those things killed my parents. If you help me avenge them, I'll give you what you want."
David noticed the pain and sadness in her voice. He nodded slowly.
June nodded too without looking at him. Elena and David looked at each other. Then he walked away. Elena and June got into their car.
Mr. Wilder: "Thank you."
Bonnie: (looked at him) "For what?"
Mr. Wilder: "For being there. You and Caroline were a great help."
Bonnie: "We didn't actually.."
Mr. Wilder: (interrupted her) "No, you were. Just knowing that you were there, having someone around that I can count on.." (he couldn't complete his sentence, but Bonnie understood him. He smiled) "He's really lucky to have friends like you." (Bonnie smiled. Then Mr. Wilder randomly looked at Antonio's computer table and saw his vervain bottle) "What's my vervain bottle doing here?"
Bonnie got freaked upon this.
Bonnie: (watched him as he went to the table and picked the bottle up) "You're taking vervain?"
Mr. Wilder: "Uh, no. Not yet. But I need to make a habit of it. Doctor's orders!"
Bonnie: (smiled nervously) "Yeah. You should do that."
Then she looked at Antonio quietly.
June: "Go away!"
Elena caught the cry in her voice and slowly opened the door. June was sitting on her bed, and indeed crying. She looked at Elena and sniffed. Then looked away. Elena went near her and sat on the bed. June cried a while longer.
June: "Do you know what really hurts? It was Thom, who tried to protect my parents. He did everything he can, and we killed him. We killed the angel that tried to protect my parents."
June: "I could live with an accident. I could live with the fact that I lost them." (looked at Elena) "But I didn't lose them. They were taken from me!" (her eyes got tearful even more and her voice got cracked at the last word) "And now.. I'm lost!"
Elena felt her pain. She went ahead and hugged her. June hugged her back, and she lost herself. She let herself cry even more, and started sobbing. For the first time, Elena was seeing her like this.
Elena: "I'll never leave you, June. I'll never leave. I'll always be there for you!"
June left Elena and looked at her.
June: "Promise me!"
Elena: (smiled with sadness) "I promise!"
It didn't make June feel better, but it calmed her a bit. She slowly leaned on Elena. Elena caressed her hair with compassion.
Damon: "What a shocking twist."
Stefan: "Don't make fun of it, Damon."
Damon: "I'm not. June was wrecked."
Stefan: (looked at him) "You're right. She was."
Damon: "I can't imagine how that must feel."
Stefan: "What did you feel when you found out that I killed our father."
Damon: "He killed us first. Tit for tat."
Stefan quickly raised his eyebrows, meaning he agrees with Damon's point. Then as they were walking into the living room, Stephan showed up. He had his phone at his hand and apparently just found out something shocking. They stopped talking and looked at him
Stephan: "Is this text for real?" (Damon and Stefan looked with confusion) "Pure bloods are now on our side?"
Damon: "Yeah, about that.."
Stefan: "Look, we just talked to them, and I'll tell you everything, but you should know that we found a common ground."
Damon: "Common ground? More like a common enemy."
Stephan: "Common enemy? What's going on?"
Damon: "A lot. But for now you need to call all the angels back."
Damon: "Because.." (smiled dangerously) "The fight is just beginning!"
