The Return of Elisabetta Salvatore

Disclaimer: I don't own the Vampire Diaries. I'm just borrowing. Only the story is mine.
Note: This story came to me while I was at work and I felt the need to write it. It's a Delena story and the plot centers around Damon and Elena being engaged. They then receive an unexpected surprise when Damon's mother returns and it is discovered that she didn't die, but was turned into a vampire. No spoilers, just follow along and bear with me as my evil imagination takes you on a rather bumpy ride.
Salvatore Boarding House
Clothes were strewn all over the floor leading to the bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom and there, sitting in a tub filled with bubbles were Damon Salvatore and his fiancee, Elena Gilbert. The two had gotten engaged a month ago and were planning their wedding. Tonight, however, they were taking a break from the wedding plans and have some romantic time to themselves. There was no mistaking the ambiance in the room, since there were candles glowing all around, as well as a wine bottle near the tub, along with two wine glasses. Damon poured them each a glass and, handing one to Elena, made a toast.
"To my darling Elena," he said. "You have made me so happy and I look forward to marrying you."
Elena smiled and they clanked their glasses, drinking their wine. Once the glasses were half empty, Damon placed his down and scooted over to Elena, gently grabbing her chin and turning her face to him, kissing her passionately. Elena returned his kiss and placed her glass down, wrapping her arms around his neck. Damon reached under the water with his free hand and spread her legs apart, playing with her clit with his fingers, earning him a muffled moan against his mouth.
Chuckling, he said, "You like that, angel?"
Elena nodded. "You know that I like anything you do to me, Damon."
Damon smiled against her lips and kissed her deeper and more passionately than before, continuing to play with her clit to heighten her pleasure. Elena pulled away long enough to let out a pleasurable scream, panting as she tried to calm herself.
Suddenly, there was a knock at the front door, startling the couple out of their moment. Damon growled, not liking the interruption one bit. Elena heard the knock too, but was curious as who would be coming by. She looked at Damon before removing his fingers from her clit and stepping out of the tub.
Damon raised an eyebrow at her. "Where are you going?"
"I'm going to see who's at the door," she replied. "As rude as our visitor may be, it doesn't hurt to at least find out the reason behind the visit." She dried herself off and threw a robe on. "I won't be long."
"I'll come with you," said Damon. "I want to see our visitor for myself."
Elena rolled her eyes. Why was she not surprised that he would insist on coming with her? She guessed it was because his protective nature. "All right, you can come with me. How could I forget that you're protective of me, since it's embedded in you as a vampire?"
Damon climbed out of the tub and wrapped a towel around himself, not giving a shit that he was dripping wet. He took her hand and they walked downstairs, the knocking getting louder as they got closer to the door. When they got there, Elena opened the door and saw a woman that had long, black hair in a French braid and blue eyes standing there. She was dressed in a black suit dress with matching pumps.
Elena blinked curiously. "May we help you?"
The woman smiled at her. "You must be Elena. It's so nice to finally meet you. I'm Elisabetta Salvatore, Damon's mother."
Damon raised an eyebrow at that. How could that be? His mother died over a century ago. "My mother? But, she's..."
"Dead?" said Elisabetta. "Well, technically, yes."
Elena looked at Damon and then back at Elisabetta. She couldn't have said what she thought she said, could she? "Wait, are you saying that you're a vampire?"
"Correct, my dear," said Elisabetta. "I have been since the day I supposedly 'died.'" She smiled at Damon. "Damon, my angel boy, it's good to see you again. I know that is an unexpected surprise for you, but I can assure you that it's really me."
Damon said nothing at first, just continued to look quizzically at Elisabetta, still wrapping his mind around the fact that she was a vampire. Finally, he said, "If you're a vampire, answer me this. Who turned you? And where the hell have you been all these years?"
"Do you remember the doctor that was at the house when I was ill? He had a British accent and he gave you a piece of hard candy?" said Elisabetta. "I believe you've seen him recently. His name starts with an E."
"Elijah?" said Elena, answering the question for Damon. "Elijah turned you?"
"He told me that he'd give me another chance at life," said Elisabetta. "He even said that he'd take me away from the figilo di pattanna I was married to and treat me better than he did. When I agreed to it, he gave me his blood and snapped my neck. When I woke up, he brought me a slave to drink from and complete my transition. After I became a vampire, I left Mystic Falls with him."
"You could've taken me with you," said Damon. "I hated living with that bastard as much as you did. You wanted us to both escape together. How could you leave me with him?"
Elisabetta could see the resentment in his eyes as he spoke. "Damon, I wanted to return many times, but Elijah told me that it was best that you think that I was dead. I loved you, and I still do. But, I did come back just before you were turned. Seeing the young man you grew up to be touched me greatly and I saw that you became a magnificent vampire."
"You were there?" said Damon. "Why didn't reveal yourself? You could've helped me. Stefan was crazed with blood lust and I had no one to turn to. The least you could've done was give me advice on being the best vampire I could be. Instead, I had to learn on my own. Do you have any idea how hard that was?"
He didn't give Elisabetta a chance to reply and walked away. Elena watched him go and turned back to her future mother-in-law.
"I'm sorry that you had to hear that."
Elisabetta shook her head. "No, child, don't make excuses for him. Though, I can understand why he's acting like this. He hasn't seen me in over a century and it's hard for him. I just hope that he'll come around in time." She smiled at Elena. "I'm glad he has you, Elena. You're good for him and I can sense that you really love him." She sighed. "Talk to him for me, and tell him that I'll be in town for a while, so if he wants to talk to me, he can come find me."
Before Elena could reply, Elisabetta was gone. Her last words rang in her mind like a recording:
"I'm glad he has you, Elena. You're good for him and I can sense that you really love him."
Elena then closed the door and hoped that she could talk to Damon and get him to talk to his mother.
Note: Thus begins another AU story by yours truly. I know, it's weird, but I got this idea and I wanted to play around with it.
Enjoy and tell me what you think!
