Elena was too ashamed to leave her room and she didn’t open when someone knocked. And thus Caroline invited herself in. She found her best friend sitting in a corner, her arms thrown around her knees.
“Ah, poor thing” Caroline sighed compassionate as she walked to Elena, a box in her arms. “Damon told me what happened. wewe okay?”
Elena shrugged and wiped her tears. “He’s says this is normal. How would he know? He’s a dude, isn’t he?”
“But he’s right” Caroline alisema and she sank down inayofuata to her.
“My stomach hurts” Elena sobbed. Caroline searched through her box and conjured a small box of painkillers. She took one and handed it to Elena. “Take this. It’ll take the pain away” Elena accepted the pill, but didn’t take it in. “Just kumeza it, Elena, it can’t hurt” Elena put the pill in her mouth and as her cheeks moved up and down Caroline hastily added: “No, don’t chew it!”
Elena shivered kwa the horrible taste and looked afraid at Caroline. “Is something bad going to happen now?”
“No, it’ll work just fine” Caroline sighed. “But it’s not a good taste” She stood up and stuck her hand out. “Come on, get up, we’re going to get wewe cleaned up” Elena took her hand and walked uneasy with her. At the door she braked. “What?” Caroline frowned. “Damon and Stefan are out there. I can’t face them like this” Elena alisema ashamed.
“Damon is gone to Ric, they’re fixing his car” Caroline reassured her. “And I haven’t seen Stefan, but this is a big house, we can easily find a way around him”
“Okay, then” Elena gave in with a small voice and they left the room.
Caroline guided her to the kuoga and she closed the door. She helped take off her upper clothing, but the underwear she left to Elena herself. “I’m going to close the curtain now, wewe can handle yourself now?”
“You’re staying here?” Elena asked.
“If that’s what wewe want” Caroline said.
“Yes, please” Elena said. “I want to know some things”
“Yeah, I thought wewe would” Caroline said, while Elena put on the shower. She shrieked. “Elena?” “I’m okay, it’s just cold” “Okay, so, what do wewe want to know?” Caroline asked. “Why does this happen? And will it happen again and if so when? How long will it go on?” Elena fired her questions.
“This happens so that women can have babies later. wewe get it a few days every mwezi and it will end when you’re about fifty” Caroline answered.
“Fifty?” Elena exclaimed. “Why do we need to have babies? Where do they come from anyway?”
It was a good thing Elena couldn’t see Caroline’s face. At first she thought Damon had blown the situation a little out of proportion, but now she realized he was right. Elena was in bad shape.
“Ehm…” Caroline started, feeling uneasy. “You had sex with Stefan, right? wewe slept in his bed, wewe kissed and he did things with wewe and wewe liked it?”
No answer. Then, a few sekunde later: “I kind of remember I slept in his bed, but I can’t remember the feeling. Is it supposed to be nice?”
“If he’s good, it should be heaven” Caroline laughed.
“Hey, Caroline?” Elena asked. “You slept with Damon, right? Was that… heaven?”
Caroline’s cheeks turned red. “Eh…next question, please”
