    Summary

    Days pass. They do what they do best. Ric watches, takes care of the kids. Takes the bottle away when he catches Jeremy and Elena drowning their sorrows and pretending they’re sixteen and rebellious. Stefan and Caroline spend more time together. They’ve got their own place, too, now, although Caroline swears there’s nothing going on, nothing at all. Jeremy draws. Elena’s the wild card. She’s beginning to think she always has been. A bomb. A grenade. And there’s no way to minimize the casualties. She knows that now. She can’t make it back to Mystic Falls to recover his body, or throw his ashes off the Wickery Bridge in some Damon-ish, particularly melodramatic fashion, so she writes, instead, writes about doing it, and then burns that, too. After that, her journal’s left untouched. Every time she tries, it’s Damon and Bonnie, Bonnie and Damon, and they’ve got no time for that, no time when the barrier’s still up and Ric’s still learning how to live without killing.

    It’s almost comical how she’s been drafted as the one to teach him--she herself still hasn’t figured out how to live without killing, and she isn’t so sure she ever will.
