Damon was lying on Elena’s bed as Elena was going through her jewelry, looking for some bracelet of halsketting, ketting she didn’t like anyway. “I think your wiccan friend might be an issue” Damon said. “How’s that?” Elena asked distracted without turning around. “Well, she and I are not the best friends, u know. I doubt she’ll invite me in, in her magical little house” Damon replied. “So?” Elena shrugged. “You can wait outside, we don’t need u to do the spell” Damon frowned his eyes angry. “Well, then I suppose I can go back home, so I can play with Katherine, like u zei so expressing this morning” he zei grumpy. Now Elena turned around so quickly her neck cracked. She ignored the pain and shot Damon a furious look. She grabbed a halsketting, ketting and walked to Damon. “She can have this one” she waved with the necklace, trying to sound normal. “I tried it on and it doesn’t suit me. So, if it doesn’t look good on me, it won’t look good on her, either”
Damon got up and walked towards Elena until he was just an inch away. He took her hands and looked her in the eyes. “I don’t believe that for a second, Elena” he zei softly. “I think u can make the most worn diamond look shining bright” A tensing silence filled the room as they stared in each other’s eyes until Elena averted her head. “We have to go” she said, swallowing. She left her room, walking downstairs. Damon waited a few seconds, thinking in himself. He had to keep himself together. It was not going to happen. She loved Stefan, period. “Damon? Are u coming?” Elena shouted from down the stairs. “Yeah!” Damon shouted back. “I’m there” He left the room and ran downstairs to find Elena waiting for him. “What were u still doing there?” Elena asked slowly. “Just… thinking” Damon zei honest. Elena nodded. “Okay” She opened the front door, walking to the car. As she and Damon got in the car and he started the engines she lay her hand on his. “Damon” she sighed. “We need to talk. About what happened” Damon looked down at the steering wheel before he looked at Elena. “I know what you’re going to say” he started. “You thought I was going to die. u thought u would never see me again. And though u love Stefan u do care about me and u felt the need to let me die with a happy feeling. It was a sweet kiss, and I will cherish it, but it was nothing but a moment of compassion” Elena blinked and shook her head confused. “What, I-” “Elena” Damon zei as he stroke her hair behind her ear. “It’s okay. I understand. I don’t want u to love me against your will” He looked back eyes front and pushed the accelerator pedal.
