|Natalie closed the door and walked in after Bonnie. She seemed rather confused, happy that Bonnie is there, but her sadness had worried her.
Natalie: "Please make yourself at home." (Bonnie looked around) "I'm really surprised you came here. Not that I'm complaining, don't get me wrong. I just thought you'd go to Caroline, or Elena. Unless it's them that you wanna talk about (?).. Or.. I don - I don't know. I'm.. I'm talkative. I'm not usually like this." (chuckled nervously) "I'm really glad you came. Especially now that I decided to stay in Mystic Falls, it's about time I make friends."
Bonnie: (chuckled nervously) "You decided to stay?"
Natalie: "This town offered me a lot more than others so that I can build a life. Life with Gary and others are cool, but we're down to half, and the rest are trying to get their own lives straight. I just wanna do the same."
Bonnie: "Well then you picked the wrong town because this town has a nasty habit of killing those who decide to stay."
Natalie: "Well I'm not planning on dying anytime soon."
Bonnie: "None do."
Natalie: (suddenly realized Bonnie was still grieving her boyfriend) "Oh my god, Bonnie, I'm.. I'm sorry I didn't.. I'm really sorry about Antonio. I know that you guys were.."
Bonnie: (interrupted her) "Please stop talking!"
Natalie: "Okay." (Bonnie turned to Natalie. She was crying. It worried Natalie) "C.. Can I get you something? Tea, or.. coffee? Or something else you like. What do you like? Just tell me what you want."
Bonnie: "What I want?" (chuckled and sniffed) "I never wanted anything from anyone. It was something I was proud of. But that was until this afternoon, when I held his body and there was nothing anyone could do. I'm the one people come to with their problems, but who do I go to, huh?" (her voice cracked) "We all want something, yeah. You want a life here, Damon wants you, Antonio wanted to buy Elena's house, his father wanted him to grow up and go to college. And what I want? I want power. Power that any witch would die for.. would kill for!"
Natalie: (disturbed by the looks on Bonnie's face) "Bonnie, calm down, you're grieving."
Bonnie: "What do you know about grief?"
Natalie: "I know a thing or two. You're not the only one who's suffered a tragedy!"
Bonnie: "Yeah, but I'm the only one who can do something about it!"
Natalie: (starting to feel threatened) "Just.. Let me call your friends."
Then she turned around and headed to another room. But before she could take one step, Bonnie used her magic to shut the door.
Bonnie: "Can't let cha!"
Natalie slowly turned around to face Bonnie. Now she was sure that Bonnie wasn't here as a friend. She prepared to defend herself.
Natalie: "You're not here to just talk. What do you want with me?"
Bonnie: "I'm gonna be a hero. People will look up to me. I'll be powerful. So powerful that no one will ever dare to mess with me. I'm gonna be invincible! But for every rise, there has to be a fall. You're just the fall that I need for my ascension!"
Natalie: (angrily) "Your powers don't work on me, Bonnie. So leave now, and I'll forget all about this.
Bonnie: (smiled dangerously) "You don't need to forget. You won't be able to tell!"
Natalie: "Don't make me destroy you! You know I can!"
Bonnie: "Right. You know, you're right. My powers don't work on you." (her eyes became full black with dark magic. Even her voice became slightly bolder) "But you can still take a hit!"
Having never seen her like this, Natalie freaked out. Then Bonnie used her magic to throw objects at Natalie. She dodged some and ran to Bonnie. But Bonnie quickly pulled a table between them to stop her. Then she threw a chair. Natalie reeled and fell. Before she could stand up, the table rose too and fell on her. Bonnie pulled one of the wood planks from the floor and hit Natalie's face with it. She fell on her back and groaned with pain. Seeing Natalie's strength was broken, Bonnie made the carpet roll around her to make her unable to move. Then she straightened the rolled carpet to put Natalie in a standing position, and pulled a knife out of her back pocket. Natalie freaked out when she saw the knife, and in panic, she called her wings of destruction. The wings appeared by tearing the carpet apart. But before she could flap them, Bonnie sent the knife at Natalie's heart. She yelped with a sharp pain. She held the knife to pull it out, but she couldn't. Eventually she fell and her wings disappeared. She was able to take only a few more breaths. Then her eyes lost their spark, and her head dropped lifelessly.
Bonnie, still her eyes full black, walked near her while watching her die with a rather numb, but sadistically emotionless face.
Stefan: "Where're you goin'?"
Damon: (stopped for a moment when he realized Stefan) "Nat hasn't answered her phone all night, she's still not answering. I'm gonna go check her out."
Stefan: (smiled) "Worried? That's a new look for you."
Damon: (realizing the mocking tone in Stefan's voice, resumed walking) "Go to school and pray she's okay, or so help me god I'm stealing your girlfriend."
Then went out. Stefan took a sip of blood with a naughty look on his face.
Stefan: (with a low voice so only himself can hear) "Wouldn't be the first time."
Damon: (while about to get in his car, with the same voice tone) "Heard that!"
Elena: "Unbelievable!" (she saw a couple kissing each other near a car elsewhere in the parking lot) "Aren't any of these people aware that the town was at the brink of destruction only one day ago!?"
June: "Damon did have a busy day."
Elena: "I thought he exaggerated when he said he compelled the entire town."
June: "I don't think he did."
Elena: "Neither do I!" (they looked at each other and laughed) "Wow!"
They started walking to school.
Misao: (with a smile) "You've done well."
Bonnie: "Well!? I killed someone!"
Misao: "I only made the offer." (pulled the knife from Natalie's chest with magic, and showed the bloody blade to Bonnie) "You're the one who agreed to spill the blood."
Bonnie: "As if I had a choice!"
Misao: "You knew what you were walking into." (handed the knife back to Bonnie) "And you can't walk away now." (Bonnie exhaled with stress and took the knife) "Now we need to cast the spell." (Misao dipped her thumb in Natalie's blood and drew a line to Bonnie's forehead) "Do the same to me." (Bonnie did the same. They cleaned their fingers) "Now hold my hands and repeat after me."
Misao started chanting a spell in Japanese. The only word that Bonnie understood was "kitsune", which they used a few times in the spell. Soon the line of blood on their foreheads disappeared, as if their bodies had absorbed it. Eventually the spell ended. Misao left Bonnie's hands.
Bonnie: "Is it done?"
Misao: "Yes. Thank you very much."
Bonnie: "I didn't do it for your gratitude."
Misao: (smiled) "Of course not."
Bonnie: "It's your turn now. You promised, bring Antonio and Sue back."
Misao: "Not yet."
Misao: "First the phantom must awaken. And we must make sure the spell worked."
Bonnie: "I don't see blood on any of our heads."
Misao: "That only means we're connected. But it doesn't mean I have the control of phantoms."
Bonnie: "And if it didn't work?"
Misao: "Then we'll try again."
Bonnie: "I'm not gonna kill another angel!"
Misao sighed, then she held Bonnie from her throat and raised her. Bonnie tried to break free, but her efforts were futile. She almost felt like this was the most powerful grasp she's ever seen.
Misao: (with anger) "You want power? You wanna be invincible? "I" have that power! And if you want it too, you're gonna have to be my bitch until I give it to you!" (left Bonnie. She gasped for breath and held her neck in pain) "So you're gonna kill, whoever I want you to kill, whenever I want you to kill. You got it?"
Bonnie looked at Misao in fear, and nodded.
End of flashback..
Bonnie snapped out of it with a knock on her window. She looked in panic. It was Matt. She calmed down and got out of the car.
Matt: "Hey. Good morning."
Matt: "How are you?"
Bonnie: (with the least convincing voice) "I'm alright."
Matt: "No. You're only as alright as I am."
Bonnie: "Why are you talking to me, Matt? To rub it in my face? To remind that I failed?"
Matt: "Wh..!? No, I'm h.. I just wanna apologize!"
Bonnie: (smiled with an angry disbelief) "You got my message."
Matt: "I don't care about the message."
Bonnie: "Yeah you do. Otherwise you wouldn't be apologizing to me."
Matt: "Bonnie, I didn't mean what I said that night. Though I know I broke your heart and for that I can never apologize enough. It wasn't me. Everything was just too overwhelming."
Bonnie: "You think it's any different for me?"
Matt: "I don't. That's why I'm worried about you."
Bonnie: "No, you're just saying I'm not thinking clearly, that this is not me."
Matt: "I'm just saying we can do crazy things when.."
Bonnie: "Well I'm tired of being the weak and fragile Bonnie. I wanna be powerful. And I can be powerful. I got a new spell. It's gonna take some time but I can bring them back." (looked away) "I will bring them back!" (looked at him) "Then I'll rub it in your face!"
She walked away. Matt remained in shock.
He listened to the house with his vampire hearing. But there was no sound of a footstep, or any hint of life inside the house. He looked around anxiously, then broke the lock and opened the door. Much to his surprise, the house was almost like a battlefield. The carpet was torn, the table and chair was broken to pieces, and there were shards and many other broken stuff everywhere. Papers were scattered around. He noticed that one of the planks of the floor was missing. He looked around. He was definitely worried.
Damon: "Talk to me, Nat. What happened here?" (he took a few more steps, then wondering how is the rest of the house. But other rooms were untouched. He headed back to the living room) "This ain't a robbery, something happened here!"
He took his phone and called Meredith's house. Chris answered it.
Damon: "Chris, it's Damon. Is Meredith there?"
Chris: "Tried her phone?"
Damon: "I keep getting voicemail."
Chris: "Then she must be in surgery."
Damon: "Then I only got you. Come to Natalie's place."
Chris: "What is it?"
Damon: "Just be quick!"
Damon: "Cheer me up!"
Gary: "There's nothing."
Damon: "What do you mean?"
Gary: "The phantom's still not awaken."
Damon: "What? It's been more than twenty-four hours, what's it doing? Taking it's time?"
Gary: "I don't know. But until it wakes I'm stuck here."
Damon: "Dammit! Natalie can't be with you by any chance, can she?"
Gary: "No, she's not. Why do you ask?"
Damon: "I couldn't reach her all night. All morning. I'm at her place now. Her living room is leveled. It seems there was a fight here, but I can't tell who she was fighting."
Gary: "Oh my god! What do you think has happened?"
Damon: "I don't know, I'm trying to stay optimist. Let me know if you hear anything, okay?"
Gary: "Yeah, you got it."
They hung up.
Caroline: (seeing her sit alone, spoke sadly) "This is depressing."
Elena: "Yeah, I hate to see her like that."
Stefan: "We just gotta give her some time. She just lost someone she loved."
Elena: "Yeah, but I still hate to see her like that."
Caroline: "Well she's a witch, so there's nothing we can do about it."
Elena: (understood she meant compulsion) "Well we can be there for her, as her friends."
Stefan: "Only if she lets us, and not sit at a table at the other side of the hall."
Caroline made a move with her head, meaning she finds Stefan's point valid. Then Matt came and sat near them. They all looked at him. The stares and awkward silence eventually bugged him.
Elena: (shook her head and smiled barely) "Nothing."
Caroline: (to Matt) "You're gonna have to excuse them, this is the first time they're seeing a human being!"
Elena and Stefan looked at Caroline with a disapproving smile.
Stefan: (at the same with with Elena) "You know what it was about!"
Matt: (chuckled) "Guys, it's okay. I've been going through something. I'm still going through it, but.. You guys are my friends."
Stefan: (to Elena) "This one we can help."
Matt: "What were you talking about?"
Matt: (turned around to see Bonnie. Her back was turned to them and she was sitting alone. He looked at his friends) "Bonnie is going through the same thing. But I think she's going through something else too."
Elena: "What do you mean?"
Matt: "I spoke to her this morning to apologize. She was still angry with me, but.. there was something different in her voice I didn't realize at the time. It was something more than pain, more than.. grief."
Matt: (hesitantly) "Darkness."
Stefan and Elena looked at Bonnie without moving their heads.
Elena: "No. That Bonnie is gone."
Caroline: "Is she? We all saw her against kitsunes. What if what she did that day sparked the evil within?"
Elena: "The evil within?"
Caroline: "She tapped into dark magic time and time again, blamed it on Esther, but she's gone and it was still there. The full black, we all saw it! It's in her."
Stefan: (to Matt) "What did she say do you?"
Matt: "That she found a spell, and that she.. will, bring Antonio back.. and Sue."
Caroline: (with disbelief) "She said that?"
Stefan and Elena looked at each other.
Stefan: "Gary said Antonio's soul was destroyed, how is she gonna bring him back?"
Elena: "I'm more worried about the spell she found. It screams dark everywhere. None of her grimores have dark spells, where did she find it?"
Caroline: "I'm more worried about the outcome. He has no soul, and this is dark magic. What if she ends up turning him into some next gen Illyria?"
Elena: "Caroline's right, we gotta do something!"
Matt raised his spoon to use it as a mirror to see Bonnie. But he couldn't see her, so he turned his back.
Matt: "Good luck talking to her."
Upon this they all looked at Bonnie's table. There was no one there, and she was nowhere in sight. Elena panicked.
Elena: "Where did she go?"
Chris: "What happened here?"
Damon: (angrily) "Do I look like a detective to you?"
Chris: (angrily) "Well you've spent hours here, I figured you must have gathered something."
Damon: "I did. I gathered that I suck at being a detective."
Chris: (calmed down) "Well, you're the vampire. Can you smell anything? Perfume, armpit stench, blood; anything that might help. How many different people do you smell?"
Damon: (took a deep breath through his nose. Then took another to make sure) "Three I think. I can't get a scent. But I smell something quite powerful."
They looked at each other. Chris understood that Damon meant her blood.
Chris: (in denial) "No!"
Damon looked elsewhere in desperation.
June: "Why do you call yourself a vampire if you can't outrun a car?"
Elena: (looked at her with a naughty smile) "Really? Is my vampirism determined by whether I can outrun a car?"
They started walking again.
June: "You know you can do it."
Elena: "Yeah, I'm a NASCAR racer."
June: "Did you ever use your top speed? I mean, can you go ultrasonic?"
Elena: (scoffed sarcastically) "Ultrasonic's a joke to me, what do you think my name means?"
Misao: "You need to work on your discretion skills."
Bonnie yelped and looked to the mirror, then pulled up the car when she saw Misao.
Bonnie: "What're you doing here."
Misao: (leaned forward) "I'm here, because the whole school thinks you're up to something."
Bonnie: "Well screw them. My boyfriend died in front of me and no one cares."
Misao: "Then what is all this fuss about?"
Bonnie: "I killed someone!"
Misao: "Wanna go to church? Confess? Kneel before your lord and beg for forgiveness?" (Bonnie weirdly looked at her) "Exactly. We're way past that."
Bonnie: "How did you feel when you first killed someone?"
Misao: (sarcastically) "I hid in a corner and cried for days." (Bonnie looked front. Misao got serious) "What do you think?"
Bonnie: "I think you didn't even care."
Misao: "You think I do things just for the kicks? I do what I do, because I have a purpose. Do you have a purpose, Bonnie? Why are you helping me?"
Bonnie: (squeezed the steering wheel) "At first it was to have my boyfriend back."
Misao: "And what is it now?"
Bonnie: "I want power." (looked at Misao through the mirror) "Unlimited power!"
Misao: "And you know there's gonna be sacrifices for that. "For every rise, there has to be a fall", this was your words. You know what you must do." (Bonnie nodded slowly) "I trust you to do it right!"
Misao opened the door and got off the car. After she disappeared, Bonnie slowly spoke to herself. Her panic, stress and fear were gone, and she was never more determined.
Bonnie: "I won't fail you!"
Meredith: "Doctor Fell."
Damon: "Where have you been?"
Meredith: (recognized Damon's voice) "At surgery. What happened?"
Damon: "Did you near from Natalie?"
Meredith: "Not since yesterday. Why?"
Damon: "I can't find her."
Meredith: "Did you try her house?"
Damon: (shouted so loudly with anger that Meredith had to remove the speaker a little away) "Well that's a brilliant idea, I wonder why I never thought that before!"
Meredith: "Calm down, I'm sorry!"
Damon: "She's been missing the whole day and we can't locate her because damn witch spells won't work to find her!"
Meredith: "Where are you now?"
Damon: "At her place."
Meredith: "I'll be there as soon as I can."
Damon: "Elena, did you see Natalie?"
Damon: "Alright. Call me if you do, okay?"
Elena: "Yeah, of course."
Damon: (with a numb voice) "Right, thanks."
After they hung up, Elena called Caroline.
Elena: "Caroline, hey. Damon just called me and.."
Caroline: "Yeah, he called me too."
Elena: "Did he ask you about Natalie?"
Caroline: "He did(?)."
Elena: (surprised) "Is he calling everyone?"
Caroline: "I think he's getting pretty desperate."
Elena: "Something's going on, I'm gonna go check her house."
Caroline: "Alright, wait for me."
Chris: "You tried Bonnie?"
Damon: "She's not picking up. I left her like three messages. She'll get back to me." (took his phone) "Let me try Nat again."
But before he could, the door opened and much to his and Chris' surprise, Bonnie walked in.
Bonnie looked someone outside. A second later Natalie entered. Seeing her, Damon got excited happily.
But Chris stood up and looked with empty eyes.
Chris: "Damon stop! That's not Natalie!"
Upon this Natalie angrily looked at Chris. Understanding it's Misao, Damon showed his vampire face and attacked her. But suddenly he stopped, stunned by Bonnie's magic. Chris was incredibly confused.
Chris: "Bonnie, what're you.. AAAH!!"
And he got stunned by Misao's magic. Misao came near Bonnie in her original form. She and Bonnie looked at each other. Damon was too in pain to notice, but Chris barely opened his eyes and saw them exchanging looks. Understanding they are together, he felt he was filled with rage, and made a force push. Misao managed to defend herself from it, but Bonnie couldn't. She flew and hit her back to the wall behind. She fainted at where she fell. Freed from Bonnie's magic, Damon immediately stood up and attacked Misao. Misao had to stop her magic on Chris to fight Damon. After a ridiculously brief fight, Misao made Damon spin in the air and fall on his neck, which snapped his neck immediately.
Misao looked at Bonnie and saw that she was just beginning to wake up. But Chris had recovered enough. Seeing the way Misao looked at him, Chris freaked out and jumped to the stairs to run upstairs. Misao ran after him. She was too fast and would catch up. Chris ran till the end and jumped out of the window by shattering it. Then he called his wings and flew. Misao was thinking whether to follow him or not. Suddenly she heard a voice from downstairs.
Misao took one more quick look at Chris, then ran downstairs.
Bonnie: (while looking at someplace else) "It's time."
Misao came near Bonnie and saw the flickering lights, indicating Natalie's phantom was starting to awake. She looked at Bonnie. She was somewhere between excited and happy, but she was still trying to maintain her serious face.
Misao: (helped Bonnie stand up) "Moment of truth!"
She and Bonnie looked at each other.
Chris: (panting) "Gary, you need to come to Natalie's place. Immediately!"
Christian: (still panting, and a little in shock) "It's Misao. She killed Natalie!"
Gary: (sadly) "Oh god!"
Christian: "And now her phantom is waking up!"
Gary: "Chris, I can't leave now! David's phantom started waking up too!"
Christian: "I know, I can sense it. Misao must've done something do delay David's awakening so we all wouldn't be at one place at once. I don't know what she is planning, but we have to be there to stop her!"
Gary: "Chris, can't you just call Meredith?"
Christian: "I called her too, she's on her way. But that may not be enough. Gary, she has Bonnie on her side!"
Christian: "I don't know why, Bonnie is helping her! So we have to be full force against her!"
Gary looked one more time to David's forming phantom. He knew he had to make a choice, both of which could have different consequences. Eventually he made up his mind, even though he was very unpleased by his decision.
Gary: "I'll be there."
He hung up, called his wings and flew to Natalie's house. Seconds after he left, David's phantom completed it's transformation and dove underground in ghost phase after an eery scream.
Bonnie: (fascinated) "It worked!"
Misao: (with an incredible happiness on her face) "Yeah!"
Misao: (angrily) "We got company."
Bonnie looked outside too and saw that her friends and the rest of angels had gathered.
Bonnie: "Can't you just unleash your phantom on them?"
Misao: "Useless against vampires. And it's one against three angels. It'd be a waste."
Meanwhile at the outside.
Elena: "What're we waiting for?"
Meredith: "The phantom's still in there."
Elena: "So is Bonnie."
Gary: "We all know why she's there."
Caroline: "Why is it not attacking them?"
Chris: "I don't know."
Elena: "I can deal with one phantom."
Elena took a step towards the house. Stefan immediately held her arm to stop her.
Stefan: "What if you can't?"
Elena looked at her arm where Stefan was holding it. She understood he meant the time when she was bitten by one. Looked at Stefan desperately.
Elena: "Bonnie's in there!"
Stefan: "So is my brother."
Elena looked at the house, desperate, but agreed to wait. Meanwhile back in the house.
Bonnie: "What's the plan?"
Misao: (sighed) "There is no plan."
Bonnie: "So we just give up?"
Misao: (oddly looked at Bonnie) "I never start a fight I can't win. You gotta know when to run."
Bonnie: "So we run."
Misao: (turned to Bonnie and looked fiercely) "We have done enough."
Bonnie didn't understand. Then Misao threw an insane punch to Bonnie, which took her feet from the ground. After spinning a few times in the air, she fell hard. She wasn't unconscious, but the impact had left her so powerless that she was barely able to move. And she was bleeding.
Misao: "Do you have any idea how excruciating it is to stay around you? It's unbearable enough without being able to read your mind!"
Bonnie: "The spell.."
Misao: "Your death will seal it. See, the kitsune magic works different. If you had cast this spell, I'd had to keep you alive. But now that I have the control of phantoms, you're simply a liability. Nothing but a waste of my limited patience!"
Then she kicked Bonnie's face. She fell on her back and groaned.
Bonnie: (cried) "We had a deal!"
Misao: "The upstart wanting unlimited power, invincibility? Don't be pathetic! You knew this was fraud from the beginning!"
She jumped on the back of the phantom.
Bonnie: (angrily) "You cunt!"
Misao: (smiled) "You knew what I was when you chose to trust me. A kitsune, trickster. You sought this out yourself!"
Misao smashed the roof with magic to open a way for the phantom. Then it flew up quite fast. After they left, Misao looked at the house as they continued flying away, and spoke a magic word.
Misao: "Kitsune no hi!" (*)
Suddenly the whole house caught fire. Elena freaked out. She yelled Bonnie's name and ran to the house despite Stefan and Caroline's efforts to stop her. But on the halfway, she was forced to stop because of an invisible wall. She yelled desperately.
Caroline: (came near Elena, and met the same wall) "Bonnie, what have you done!"
Others came too. Meredith tried to see if she could go further. But she was unable to as well.
Meredith: "I'm unable to go as well."
Meredith and Chris looked at him. Meanwhile in the house, Bonnie finally managed to stand up. But everything around her was burning. So much that she almost didn't have a room to take a step. Suddenly she saw Damon's body a little further from the window. In an attempt to put out the fire so she could reach him, she spoke a magic word.
Bonnie: "Revertas incendia!" (the spell was only effective for a moment, but then it made the fire even worse) "Revertas.."
Before she could try the spell again, she had to step back because of a suddenly rising flame. Then parts from the ceiling fell on her. She was fast enough to stop them before they reached her. Then she sent them elsewhere. She was beginning to run out of oxygen, and eventually she stated coughing. Realizing she was stuck there, in an attempt to save Damon at least, she raised him with magic and sent him out of the window as fast as she could. The gang outside weren't expecting it. Stefan quickly ran near his brother and checked to see if he was damaged. But he was going to be fine. So he stood up and looked at the house. It was now burning way beyond the point of extinguishing. Elena was able to hear her friend's coughs and cries.
Elena: (to the angels, desperately) "Please, there must be something you can do! Use your wings, create a wind; do something!"
Chris: "House is protected against angels. With kitsune magic. There's nothing we can do."
Elena: "You're just gonna stand there?"
Chris: (angrily) "Don't you dare put that blame on us!"
Elena turned to the house. She too was crying. She focused on the house and listened to her friend. Meanwhile in the house, Bonnie was trying to fight back to the flames that were dangerously coming at her, and she was terribly cornered. She looked around. There was no point. She stopped fighting, and fell on her knees. She was crying.
Bonnie: "Spirits of the nature! I know I wasn't good. I was selfish. Impulsive. And my reasons weren't good enough. I failed you! I'm not expecting you to save me! But please, just forgive me!"
Tears dropped off Elena's cheeks. And only a few short seconds after, the house exploded. Everyone fell to the ground with the impact. Elena screamed Bonnie's name with despair. Caroline was crying too.
They were all in shock.
Trivia & NotesEdit
- (*): "Kitsune no hi" (キツネの火) is the Japanese of "Fox fire".
