A/N I DO NOT OWN ANYTHING! PARTS OF THIS ARE TAKEN FROM SEASON 3 EPISODE 18 I DO NOT OWN IT! So, I was screaming at the tv on Thursday when Stefan confessed to still loving Elena, this is just what I wish would have happened. Thanks to my beta Elena Rain. Also, I have this completed but I'm thinking of continuing it, depending on what you readers want, so tell me if I should continue or leave it as a one shot.
Elena walked into Stefan's bedroom and sighed. He held a wooden stake in his hands. He looked up at her and she spoke. "Hey…"
"You haven't said much since you got back home."
"I'll be a ball of sunshine once Damon gets the last stake from Alaric, I promise." He responded jokingly.
She chuckled softly. "You really scared me today. You wouldn't have survived if you went up against Klaus on your own….you know that right?
He nodded. "But you don't have to worry about anymore, though."
"Why?" Elena walked inside and over by his chair.
"Because he's not worth it, all this time and energy I've wasted hating him, it was for nothing. It's done, it's over, and we lost. I'm right back where I started."
Elena shook her head. "That's not true, yeah, Klaus put you though your worst nightmare, but you came out the other side. You beat him by being better than him."
"Yeah, but look what I lost in the process…" He stood up and slowly started to walk towards her. "Hating Klaus was easy. It allowed me to ignore what was happening around me, everything I let slip away. Now I've got to deal with that. "
"No, no, just admit it, admit it to me, Elena, I know you don't owe it to me, but I just need to hear you say it."
"I can't, because it's not true, Stefan, I never stopped loving you."
"I know that, I know you didn't, even though I did everything possible to push you away. It's my fault. It's all my fault, Elena, it's all my fault."
"Stefan, what are you talking about?"
"I'm talking about the fact that you're still in love with Damon."
A look of confusion crossed her face. "What, no, Stefan I was just…"
"Hey…" He gently touched her cheek. "I love you, I will always love you, but I just want you to look me in the eyes and tell me you don't feel something for him."
Elena was quiet for moment. She looked Stefan deep in the eyes. "I don't feel anything for him. It's you, Stefan. It's always going to be you."
"Why did you kiss him?"
Elena sighed and pulled away from him, she walked over to the bed and sat down looking at the floor feeling ashamed. She honestly didn't regret the kiss at first, but the more she thought about it, the more she realized Damon had been her rebound guy. That kiss meant nothing to her.
Stefan walked over and sat down next to her. He gently touched her back. "Elena, please, you say you don't feel for him but you did kiss him."
"I know, and I regret it so much."
Tears filled her eyes as she thought back to that day. "I'm so sorry!"
If Stefan had one weakness, second to human blood, it would be Elena's tears. He instantly pulled her into a hug and a feeling of dread washed over him. "Elena, look at me."
She looked up at him. "Did Damon compel you?"
"No, I remember everything that led up to the kiss, it wasn't forced."
"Then please, Elena, tell me. If you don't feel for him, why did you kiss him?"
Elena sniffed back tears. "Because I wasn't in my right mind. I was so overwhelmed with guilt for sending, Jeremy away. I literally felt sick to my stomach and I just…I wasn't thinking clearly so when he kissed me…I kissed back. But, you have to understand, when I closed my eyes I saw your face, I was kissing you, not Damon."
"SO, Damon took advantage of you?"
"It sounds so bad when you say it like that. But, yeah, I guess he did a little bit, but I didn't stop him either."
"Don't worry, I won't punch him again." Stefan chuckled. "I'm just making sure I understand why you would kiss him if you didn't have feelings for him."
Elena nodded and wiped away a lone tear that fell down her cheeks. "I just…I had Damon compel, Jeremy to leave town to keep him safe from Klaus….That much you already know but…. Right after that I felt so sick to my stomach with guilt. All I could think about was what happen with Vicki and Damon compelling him to forget and him hating me and I was upset and I was emotional, I wasn't thinking clearly and I…I don't know the next thing I know he's kissing me and I'm kissing him back. There that's what happened."
"If you had the chance to kiss him again would you?"
"Do you love him?"
"I love him the way I love, Jeremy."
"That's all I needed to hear."
He pressed his lips to hers and she instantly kissed back. It was heated and passionate but most importantly it was loving.
"I love you so much, Elena." Stefan whispered against her lips.
"I love you so much too, Stefan. I missed you."
"I missed you too."
They pulled away, Elena was panting. "I forgot…what kissing you…did to…my lungs."
Stefan chuckled. "Sorry."
She smiled. "It's ok…I didn't say…I didn't like it."
Stefan sighed. "Elena, we still need to talk about something, big before this becomes official."
"Blood, me on human blood. Damon was right to try and help in the alley way the other night. I hated it but he's right, I need to learn to control it. I can't just avoid it."
"So I'll help you. When you were drinking my blood you were doing fine, let's get back to that. A little bit every day, remember?"
He shook his head as he had a suddenly flash in his head of himself drinking from her during prank night. "Elena, I can't. What if I hurt you?"
"You won't, I know what you're thinking about and that wasn't you, Stefan. Klaus compelled you to do it. I trust you, please trust yourself."
"But you all ready did, don't you remember? That day you saved Meredith. You controlled yourself, remember? You had me come upstairs with you because you knew if I was there you wouldn't lose control. If you managed to control yourself with all that blood, a tiny drop of my blood should be cake. I trust you, Stefan. You just need to trust yourself."
She gently took the stake from his hands.
"Elena, what are you?"
She took it and gently stabbed herself in the hand creating a small hole of blood. She gently handed her hand to him. "You can do this, Stefan. I promise. Trust yourself; trust your love for me. You can do it."
"Are you sure?"
Elena nodded. "100%"
Stefan took a deep breath and let it out. He took Elena's hand and gently put it to his mouth drinking the small amount of blood she had created. When he was done, he took a few deep breaths and pushed the hunger and the ripper he felt ready to break through.
He looked at Elena's face and all those ripper thoughts vanished. He took her hand once more and kissed her wound. She giggled softly. "You did it."
"I did it, thank you, Elena. I never could have done this without you."
She smiled. "It's you and me, Stefan, always."
He pulled her into another heated and passionate kiss. She may not have been the one to free him from the ripper, but she was the one who was going to make sure he never became the ripper again and that was the most important job of all.
