She nodded at him. "You helped humanity today," she said. She had no idea if the other vampire was aware of the people she had just sent racing for the woods. The only reason she had approached him was to distract him long enough for them to escape. She hadn't expected to make a friend. If that was even what this was.
"I'm Elena," she said, tentatively taking a few steps closer to him. "I live in one of the rebel camps not far from here. If there was ever some other way you wanted to help.... we wouldn't turn you away." She knew she was playing with fire. She had no reason to trust this other vampire but there was something about him that seemed so genuine to her.
