Kelsey threw down the shovel when her phone rang. Without looking at the screen she pressed cancel.
“How long are wewe going to keep avoiding me?”
Kelsey turned around and looked at Derek, who put away his phone. “Until wewe get it in your thick skull that I don’t want to talk to you”
“We have to talk” Derek said.
“I just buried my sister” Kelsey alisema emotional. “I had to leave her last night, because I was turning and now I can’t even aliyopewa her a proper funeral. I just put her in the ground, like a dog”
“I’m sorry” Derek said. “I feel terrible about it. Amber was my girlfriend”
“Yeah, well, she couldn’t have meant that much to you” Kelsey shot at him. “Where were wewe that night? Why weren’t wewe there to help us?”
“I got chicken” Derek alisema soft.
“We have to go to the Boarding House” Damon alisema urgent. He looked at Derek. “You’re coming with us?” Derek looked from Damon to Alaric and then shook his head. “No, I’m going to stay here” Damon, Alaric, Stefan and Katherine ran outside, leaving Derek in the bar.
“So, once again wewe acted like your own cowardly self” Kelsey alisema disgusted.
“I’m sorry” Derek repeated.
“That’s not bringing her back” Kelsey alisema angry. “Don’t wewe get it? This is my fault! I bit her” she cried.
“No! It’s not your fault” Derek alisema sharp. “If she hadn’t been turned vampire one bite wouldn’t have killed her. She might’ve been sick, but she wouldn’t have died. The one who turned her is responsible for her death”
Kelsey stared at Derek. “Stefan Salvatore turned her”
Derek stuck his hand in his kanzu, koti and pulled out a stake. “Then wewe know what to do” he said, handing out the stake.
