She hated feeling all of that emotion pouring out from him. She could sense it now that she was a vampire than she had ever been able to as a human. There were so many mixed up feelings in there and Elena had no idea how to make it better. And the desire to make it better was nearly killing her. She was bursting with it.
"It's not false hope, Stefan. Damon is up, he's awake. You're getting your brother back." And that was the most important thing. There was one thing Elena had figured out a long time ago. The Salvatore brothers might have loved Katherine once and they might love Elena now but they would always love each other most. Elena never wanted to stand in the way of that. She hoped she could find a way to make Damon understand the way things were right now. She knew she was going to hurt him either way. So long as the brothers got to reunite, things would be okay.
"We can keep tracking them but I'll bet you anything we end up at one of the farms in Everett. Which means we need to find them before Alec does." Alec was very dangerous. Not just because he was Rebekah's right hand man but because he was a genetically enhanced vampire. Which gave him an edge over all of the other vampires and definitely an edge over his daughter who was mostly human and just part transgenic.
"We should pick up the pace if we want to find them. If they're with Lucy they're not moving as fast as we can and I'm betting they're on Lucy's sleep schedule. She's human." Which meant she slept at night and was up during the day. Would they reach Everett by night fall? Elena had no idea. But she raced ahead of Stefan and stopped only long enough for him to catch up before letting him take the lead and set the pace.
