Why? Bonnie often wondered. Why did everyone love Elena? Why did Damon love Elena? Why couldn't she be like Elena?
To make a long answer short? Because Elena was Elena. She was perfect, from her Lapis Lazuli eyes and her blonde hair to her gold aura so bright it blinded. Men and women alike would march to the ends of the world for her, if not for anything but to see her smile.
No one would ever love Bonnie the way they loved Elena. Matt thought he loved her. She saw through it. She was the second choice, the rebound that wouldn't exist had Elena chosen him. The little witch with fair skin and fiery curls would forever remain in Elena's shadow. She was disregarded as a helpless child. Something to keep safe, but not to be taken seriously. However, Bonnie was practicing.
She would prove them all wrong.
