"Bonnie! Are you even listening to me?" My best friend, Elena Gilbert, exclaimed.
I snapped out of my reverie about Gramps immediately. She had passed away about a month ago, and I had gone to stay with my father for about a fortnight and then I had come back to Mystic Falls where I was staying at Elena's for a few days, before I would go back to my mothers house.
I shook my head, "I'm sorry, Elena." I muttered, "I'm not,"
She came over to me, a concerned look on her face. "Bonnie? What's wrong?" She asked me, coming over and perching next to me on the edge of her bed.
She had been updating me on what had happened during my absence but I honestly didn't have the strength to listen. My grandmother had died, and it had been mostly my fault. I was the one who had forced her to do that spell. Nothing I could say or do now would bring her back to me.
"You're not listening again!" She accused.
I sighed, "I'm really sorry," I apologized "But I have so much on my mind," I pushed my dark brown locks out of my eyes and looked over to my best friend who was giving me a look that said 'spill'.
I sighed, "It's gramps and everything, It was all my fault. I don't know how im going to survive without her, let alone become a good witch!" I complained, tears starting to escape from my eyes. It was not because I was upset, rather out of natural instinct, whenever someone or I mentioned her name.
Elena put her arm around me, her long dark hair perfectly neat and tidy as usual. It framed her face perfectly, bringing out the warm brown in her eyes. "Oh Bon. I know what its like to lose a loved one. Seriously. I swear I do. But you have to move on," she advised me, kindness radiating from her eyes as she leaned in to give me a hug.
I hugged her back, "I know I have to. But I never really appreciated her," I pointed out, tears falling out of my eyes like Niagara falls now. I could barely see my best friends' face from the tears that were blinding me, making everything around me seem blurry.
Elena shook her head, "You so did appreciate her. Now stop being upset. She wouldn't have wanted you to be sad now, you have to be happy. For her sake." She whispered.
I nodded, "I know, El. But it's so hard," I complained.
She nodded, "I understand. Boy, do I understand," She murmured.
Suddenly she jumped up from on the bed. "What you need is a fun girls night out," She cried, excitement shining in her eyes.
I dabbed my eyes with the tissue I had grabbed from Elena's bedside table. "I don't want fun." I told her, standing up and heading over to look in the mirror. Urgh, hideous. My eyeliner was dripping and my lip-gloss was a mess.
She grinned, "Don't be ridiculous. Come on! Lets go to the mall," She cried. "We can tell Caroline to come," She encouraged.
I shook my head, "If that's supposed to convince me…." I started.
She giggled, "What's Caroline done now?" Elena asked, looking mildly amused.
I rolled my eyes, "If I have to hear how good a kisser Matt is one more time, I might just hurl," I admitted.
Elena smiled, "She's just happy with him," She pointed out.
I sighed, "Just as you are with Stefan," I reminded her. She blushed a little at the mention of her boyfriends name, then narrowed her eyes at me.
"Bonnie Bennett? Are you lonely?" She asked me, an accusatory tone in her voice.
I shook my head, "No," I fibbed. Which was the exact opposite of what I felt. I wanted to have someone to distract me from the sadness. I was sick of being a third wheeler.
She folded her arms across her chest. "You're lying. Don't lie to me, Bon. I know you too well. You are lonely aren't you?" She asked.
I shook my head, "I'm not lonely. Why would I be?" I lied again.
Elena ignored me, "We'll find you a boyfriend soon enough," She told me, surely.
I rolled my eyes, feeling secretly thrilled at the thought. "I don't want one," I muttered.
She grinned at me, "Whatever. Can you please go get ready so we can go out?" She asked me, tossing her long straight hair over her shoulder. She was already dressed in some tight fitting black velour pants which looked awesome on her, and a white V- Neck tank top as opposed to my 'Sabrina the teenage witch' pajamas. Elena had gotten them for me as a joke, but they were actually very comfortable.
I sighed and headed to the bathroom. I splashed water on my face, and removed any trace of make up. I then reapplied eyeliner, mascara and some clear lip-gloss. Elena watched me, a smile forming across her face. I didn't want to know what she was thinking. It was not going to be good and I would find out soon enough what she was plotting.
I headed back out and Elena followed me. "I'll leave you to get dressed," Elena muttered, heading out of her room and shooting me a mischievous smile before closing the door firmly. I sighed again, and pulled my overnight bag from on the floor. I snatched from inside a purple and gray pleated miniskirt, which Elena said looked cute on me, and a matching gray camisole. I pulled them quickly over my head, and tossed my pajamas into my bag. Then I put on my gray ballerinas.
I headed out of Elena's room with my purse and headed downstairs. Elena was hanging out with Jeremy, who was watching T.V.
"Ready?" She asked me, hopping up from on the sofa.
I shrugged, and smiled at Jeremy who grinned back for a second then turned his attention back to the T.V. Elena dragged me out of the house, a big smile on her face.
"What did you do?" I asked, narrowing my eyes at her in the most menacing way I could.
She let out a nervous giggle. "Nothing," She cried as she led me to her car.
I sighed and got into the passenger seat. I would probably find out soon enough what she was plotting. Elena got into the drivers seat, grinned at me one more time, then started the engine. She started out of the driveway, her gaze fixed out of the car to focus on her driving.
"To the mall?" She cried, with a lot of enthusiasm.
I nodded, "To the mall," I confirmed, glumly.
