The following day Damon found himself agreeing with Elena and Meredith more and more as the day progressed. He did not like this new Bonnie.
She turned up early the following morning in the back of a taxi with only a rug sack and small suitcase as luggage. The taxi had stayed parked outside for half an hour before the driver came up to the house demanding payment. Damon had reluctantly paid after Bonnie told him she didn't carry cash. After that Red had come down the stairs growling with her heckles up at Bonnie. The wolf didn't seem to faze the red head one bit, if anything she seemed to find it amusing.
When Elena and Meredith had tried to ask her what she had been up to over the years; she had simply replied that it would not be nice to tell the two women trapped in relationships the goings on of a single girl.
Stefan had suggested that they take the horses riding around the grounds as a way of distraction and to help break the tension. Bonnie had spent the entire time passing comment's across to Stefan and eyeing him up like he was a piece of candy she wanted to spend the day licking. If it hadn't been for Meredith grabbing hold of Elena and privately telling her not to react, Damon was sure she would have pounced on the small red head.
It wasn't until they got back into the house that Meredith and Elena switched roles. Bonnie had accidently – but quite clearly on purpose – spilt wine on the back of Sage's shirt; then went to make a move to help him remove it. It took both Stefan and Sage to drag the fuming hunter upstairs. Bonnie's only reaction was to walk out the kitchen winking at Damon as she passed. Usually it was Damon that managed to get those kinds of reactions out of people. She was good but she was no Damon Salvatore and quite frankly it pissed him off.
Damon looked at the clock on the wall in passing. Six! There were still another six hours left of the day. He began wondering which of them was going to kill the red head first in that time. Walking into the main living area he found Red pacing in front of the fire. He knew Red didn't like Bonnie either. Three times he had had to hold her back from attacking when Bonnie had upset one of them. They had all tried to get a read on Bonnie's aura all day or try and break into her mind without her noticing but she had barriers thicker than steel.
"Please tell me you have something stronger to drink than wine in your cupboards!" Meredith storming into the room brought Damon out of his thoughts.
"What did the little...witch do now?" He strolled over and opened a secret hole in the wall.
"She only accidently strolled across the landing naked" Meredith looked up as he passed her a glass of bourbon. "Where you going to say something that rhymed with witch?"
Before he could answer Elena entered the room closely followed by Sage and Stefan. "Well if he wasn't I will; can I get one of those?" Damon raised his eyebrows indicating the hole for them to help themselves.
"This was your idea" Damon went to Red with his own glass of Bourbon while gently stroking the top of the wolf's head in attempt to calm her down.
"Yes well, right now as far as my ideas go, this one isn't going so well." Elena humped down on the sofa.
"Love, if Bonnie wants to live the way she is then you have to accept it. You can't go around changing people because you don't like who they are turning into"
"Stefan, this isn't about me changing people. Ordinary, normal people can go screw as far as I'm concerned." Elena retorted back towards Stefan who had taken safety next to Damon.
"I have to agree with Elena, this is Bonnie. Sweet small care free Bonnie who would cry if you switched the lights out before she was safely tucked up inside her duvet. That thing upstairs will only cry if nobody is sharing her bed with her" Meredith stood up to help herself to another glass of bourbon but was beat by Sage bringing her the bottle. With a smile he began refilling her glass.
"So what do you want us do to, tie her up and torture her until she becomes sweet little Bonnie again?" Damon raised his eyebrows as both women screamed back at him at the same time; yes. Looking down at Red he couldn't help but shack his head. "Stop sniggering Red." Red merely looked up at him before trotting across to Elena and Meredith and planted herself in-between them.
Stefan looked from Damon beside him to women across from him. "We are not tying anybody up. We will..."
"Who's tying who up? I have plenty of rope if you need it!" Bonnie leaned against the frame of the door.
"Of course you do" Damon commented before taking a drink from his glass. Heckles up; Red slowly made her way back to Damon never taking her eyes from Bonnie.
The room stayed silent as Bonnie made no attempt to join the group in the room. Bonnie just stood taking them all in one by one while her facial expression never changed. "Well I'll leave you all to go back to whatever it is you were doing. I may be leaving tomorrow, failing that the following day. Night Night!" Turning around she took two steps before turning back to Damon "Unless of course I find a reason to stay longer" But before she could finish the wink she started Red pounced.
Jumping on top of the sofa she pounced towards Bonnie. Her heckles now on full alert ran from the top of her head down the full length of her back. Bonnie ran laughing up the stairs with Red closely catching up behind her. Damon threw his glass towards his brother before taking off after Red. Cursing as he followed the sounds of laughter from Bonnie and snarling from Red he just managed to tackle the wolf down to the floor before she ran head first into the door that Bonnie had just managed to close.
Red was fighting him, but he wrapped his arms around her and held on until she gave up. He still didn't get up, he laid there with her until her panting had subsided and she breathed a normal rhythm again. "Don't worry Red; I'll let you chase her from this house before tomorrow if she upsets you anymore." Damon whispered to her before getting up and without a backward glance to the door made his way back down stairs to the others with Red by his side.
"Did she kill her?" Meredith asked before he even walked back into the room.
"No but I'm getting tired of trying to stop her. Jealous she may get sometimes, but on those occasions I find it harmless and cute" He smirked towards his brother before he could say anything and took his glass back before continuing looking down at Red "But for her to try and attack Bonnie four times in one day; something's not right with her."
"With the wolf or Bonnie?" Sage walked up to Red and tickled under her snout looking into her eyes before continuing. "She is your companion. If Saber or Talon took an instant disliking to somebody the way that Red has to Bonnie, never would I question their judgement. Animals after all have the ability to sense things even we sometimes can't, and wolves are even bigger hunters than we are. Trust in your companion my friend" Red looked at Sage with soft brown eyes; looking nothing like they did minutes ago filled with hate; and licked his face with a big sloppy kiss before howling at the ceiling.
After much more pointless debating the group got nowhere in how they were going to deal with Bonnie. They finally decided to call it a night after agreeing that the best course of action was to wait till tomorrow. Things always looked better after a nights rest. Damon lay on his bed with a curled up Red by his side. He thought that it would be best to keep her near him. As he thought of the day's events he couldn't help but realise that every time Red had gotten upset at Bonnie, it was in defence to her ways with everybody. When she had upset Elena and Meredith, even her attempts at seducing Stefan and Sage had gotten the wolves heckles going.
Then Sage's words came back to him "trust in your companion my friend". Damon's eyebrows knitted in thought. How was he supposed to trust in her? Was she trying to tell him something? Not seeing sleep come anytime soon he sat up looking back at Red as she lifted her head to him. "You stay here, I'm going to check up on something" Slowly making his way from his room he made his way towards Bonnie's door. Standing by the door he listened in to make sure she was asleep. The gentle rhythm of her heart and breathing told him she was.
Gently easing the door open he made his way across the room to the bed. Looking down at the red head in her sleep she looked like the innocent girl her friends were so desperately trying to get back. Without the cocky looks, or seducing sneers she looked like his little redbird. Stopping himself from stroking her red curls he turned away. But not before the moon light made something catch his eye. Turning back he focused; turning his head so he could try and catch the moons light again. When he finally did he froze.
What was he to do? If he attacked her now he couldn't trust himself not to kill the thing before he got answers! Sage, wake up! Sage! SAGE!
I'm not asleep. This had better be important
Damon cringed at what he must have just interrupted. Get your naked ass dressed and get into Bonnie's room. We have a problem. In less than thirty seconds Sage was stood next to Damon not looking very happy. Putting a finger to his lips then pointed towards Bonnie, Damon showed Sage what he had seen. Sage smirked as though all of his questions had been answered.
Before long Bonnie's bed was surrounded by Damon, Sage, Stefan, and Meredith. Bonnie stayed asleep oblivious to what was going on around her. Damon turned to the others whispering barely above sound. "So are we all in agreement that none of us are imagining what we are seeing?" He was beginning to lose patience. Sage had insisted on getting Meredith to have a look in case she didn't believe them, then Meredith wanted Elena to see but Stefan had come in her place. Finally Elena strolled into the room after Stefan had insisted she come.
"Yes, so what are we going to do now?" Elena asked still whispering. Before anyone could answer Bonnie woke up with squeal and dived out of the window above her bed before anybody could manage to make a successful grab; instead grabbing onto each other.
"Well in answer to your question, I believe capture is now on the cards!" Damon answered in his most sarcastic tone as he watched the redhead disappear behind the tree line.
