She had to give him that. But that was the problem with Rebekah and Klaus, they weren't sane. Some vampires were just plain evil and crazy from beginning to end but the line that Elena came from could choose to keep their humanity turned on. It was just that most didn't want to and Elena couldn't even blame them for that. This world was a terrible place. It must be so easy not to feel anything.
Elena could never bring herself to turn off her humanity, had never even tried. She didn't go anywhere near that "switch" for fear that once she flipped it she would never be able to flip it back. Elena never wanted to lose her humanity. She never wanted to be a vampire in the first place, and this guy sounded like he had never wanted to be one either.
"I'm sorry that she did that to you. She forced me to turn too," Elena said. And it was true... in a way. Rebekah had forced her to die. She just hadn't expected Damon's blood to be in her system when she did it. Elena hadn't been expecting that either but she didn't blame Dr. Fell and she didn't blame Damon. The only person she blamed was Rebekah. But even Elena knew that humans didn't last very long in this world.
"Why do you stay here then? Why work for them if you're unhappy?"
She knew she was pushing her luck with every second she stayed on this rooftop but she couldn't just leave him alone up here like this.
