Elena entered the Grill and walked to a table. She was going to meet Damon there.
She looked up at Stefan. “Hi” she zei uncomfortable. They hadn’t really spoken since she had declared her love for Damon.
“Can I sit with you?” Stefan asked careful. Feeling it would be impolite to reject Elena nodded. “I’m sorry I wasn’t there last night. Caroline told me she was giving a party to celebrate u and…Damon”
“It’s okay, Stefan, it wasn’t that big of a deal” Elena said.
“I just thought it would be weird” Stefan explained. “After all that happened I’m not his number one on his lijst of favorites. I’m surprised you’re still talking to me”
“Can u quit feeling sorry for yourself?” Elena said.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t…I’m sorry” Stefan said, lying his hand on Elena’s.
Damon parked his car in the neighborhood of Mystic Grill. He got out of it and gazed inside to see if Elena was there. She was…and so was his brother. He saw the closeness between the two ex-lovers and jumped into conclusions.
Elena pulled her hand away. “Don’t do that, Stefan” she zei a little irritated. She looked outside seeing Damon with a shocked expression. “Damn it, he’s seen us” She quickly got up and ran outside, hoping Damon was still there.
He was. He looked from Elena to Stefan.
“Nothing happened, Damon” Elena said.
“We were just talking” Stefan wanted to help.
“Can u please leave us alone, Stefan?” Elena zei a little mad. With a disappointed face Stefan walked back inside the Grill.
Elena walked towards Damon and took his hands. “Damon, I can’t do this. Not like this. u can’t be jealous every time u see me talking to another guy. u need to learn to trust me”
“I do trust you” Damon zei desperate. “But he’s Stefan. He’s your ex, he’s always going to mean something to you”
“That doesn’t mean I want him back” Elena said. “He tried to stop me from saving you. That moment I had a choice. I could stay with him and stay unharmed of I could fight him off and put my life and my friend’s on the line to save yours. Doesn’t that say enough?”
Damon looked down, seeming ashamed. “Sorry” he mumbled.
“You really need to work on your self-esteem. People do love you” Elena assured him. “I love you” And to toon it she kissed him for a long time.
