"Stefan answer your fucking phone already!" The phone had been ringing for ten seconds and he hadn't even noticed it yet. He looked around and quickly answered it before it went to voicemail. "Hey Elena," he said. It made me sick every time I heard him say her name. 'That should be you Damon' I thought to myself. 'You should be the one she's calling right now. Not Stefan.'

He was on the phone for about two minutes, maybe less, before I heard Elena say 'bye' form the other end. Stefan ended the call and placed his phone back on the table.

"What the hell was that all about?" I asked him. It was annoying when he didn't answer his phone and I had to see the words 'Elena Gilbert' flash across the screen. It killed me, metaphorically speaking.

"Sorry I can't be on top of every little thing Damon," he said sarcastically. I wouldn't have thought Elena would be 'a little thing' to him.

He walked out of the room and I heard his car start in the driveway. Three seconds later, he was gone. I was glad to be rid of him; he's been driving me nuts all day. He'd been pacing the house nonstop since he woke up this morning; he hadn't even called Elena, she had to call him. Something was up.

Well, what to do on a Saturday night, with no brother and nothing happening. For once, I didn't want to go out and hunt; I wanted to stay home. I felt like something was going to happen. I didn't know why.

I watched TV, though nothing interested me. I read books, though I've read them all already. I listened to my records, though I've heard them all before. Eternity did get rather repetitive.

My phone buzzed in my pocket and I took it out. 'Elena Gilbert' was lit up on my screen. Why on earth would Elena call me?

"Hello miss Elena," I said humorously as I answered the call.

"Hello Damon Salvatore," responded a voice, but it wasn't Elena's. I didn't recognize it. I stopped to hear breathing and struggling in the background of the call.

"Where's Elena?" I got harsh and demanding as I realized the voice wasn't a friendly one; Elena was in trouble.

"Oh I think you know very well where I've taken her Damon. You just need to think." Whoever it was hung up the phone, and I was left to think about what he had said, in silence. I knew where she was? What did that mean? I angrily placed my phone back in my jeans pocket and began to pace the room. 'Think Damon, he said you knew where she was…' I thought to myself. I reviewed all the places that could have been the answer, but only one kept resurfacing in my head. The church.

I was out of my house and running toward the church the moment I knew that was where Elena was. My phone buzzed again and I slowed to look at it, it was Elena; or whoever had Elena.

"Tell me where she is or I swear to god I'll-" I was cut off.

"Calm down Damon, I'm not going to hurt her. Unless of course, you don't listen to me. Damon, you better listen good. I want you to come here, without telling anyone where you're going. Now, you be a good little Damon and follow the rules and you'll get your prize." He hung up.

I sped up even faster than before, when I got to the church I saw nothing there. But I could smell Elena, she was close, very close.

"Elena!" I yelled. I didn't expect here to be a response, but there was.

"Damon, please don't. I don't want you to get hurt. Damon plea-" There was struggling and she stopped talking. She started whimpering and crying hysterically.

"I'm going to fucking KILL YOU!" If Elena had so much as a splinter…

He stepped out of the clearing behind the trees, I didn't know him. He walked towards me with something in his hand, it was hair. It was Elena's.

I ran forward to attack when he jabbed a sharp stick through my stomach, it wouldn't kill me but damn, it hurt. I fell to the ground and tried to regain myself but every time I moved he jabbed it father into me.

"Damon Salvatore. I never thought I would see you again." He smiled at me.

"I don't know who you are, I've never seen you before." I confessed.

"Bull shit. You just don't remember." He walked in circles around me, taunting my inability to move.

I saw Elena crawl out from behind a tree about thirty feet away. She was covered in dirt and she was bleeding all over. "Da-mo-nnn" She moaned my name. I was going to kill him so terribly he'll wish he was never born.

"Ahh," He exclaimed, "Here's the main attraction to this little show. Wanna come out and play Elena?" He ran over to her and picked her up so quickly I heard a few of her ribs break. She screamed out in pain, but he didn't let her go.

"You'll remember me soon Damon, I swear to it." He said this and ran off so fast I couldn't even tell which way he went. I've never seen anyone so fast before.

I pulled the stick out of my stomach and started healing myself. After a few moments I was well enough to kneel. I went to Elena.

"Oh god Elena, I'm so sorry. I…" I didn't know what to say. She was loosing blood, fast. I had to save her. I bit my wrist and held it to her lips. She hesitated.

"Elena, hone, please drink it, I don't want to loose you." I pleaded with her. She reluctantly drank from my wrist. Her need for it became more and ore intense as she drank. Finally she started to heal and I pulled my wrist away.

"Don't tell Stefan. I don't want to have to explain things to him…" She said to me with a blank expression on her face. I nodded and brought her closer to my chest. She nuzzled beneath my chin and I lifted her into my arms.

It was quiet on our way home. I took her to my house; I figured that her house wasn't really safe at the moment.

I rushed up the stairs and placed her lightly on top of my bed. I laid down next to her and wrapped my arms around her waist. She was about to fall asleep when I said,

"I though I had lost you Elena."

"Mhhmmhh.." She moaned as she drifted to sleep.

The moment she woke up, so did I. She seemed to be confused as to where she was, but she looked over at me and we smiled at each other.

"Good morning Damon," She said softly. I tightened my arm around her waist and she sighed. "I like it here, it's warm."

"I agree with you Elena, I quite enjoy this right here." I lifted my head and kissed her cheek while shifting her around to face me.

I heard the door open from downstairs; Stefan was home. Elena seemed to realize this too.

"What do I do?" She asked nervously. I contemplated and then said:

"Let him see, it seems like we've both made our choice."

Elena didn't have time to respond because of Stefan running through the door; which I had stupidly left open.

"Elena? Damon?" He was angry, that much I could tell.

"Why good morning sunshine. Elena wanna say hello to my wonderful brother?" She shifted herself to face Stefan.

"Stefan…" She whispered.

He walked toward the bed, never taking his eyes off of Elena. He went to take her from me, but I lifted her over myself and around to the other side of the bed.

"Not so fast brother, Elena doesn't want you anymore." Ouch, that was harsher than I meant it to be. But then again, I couldn't think of a different way I could have said it. He looked at me, then Elena.

"Damon…" He was speechless. He noticed the fact that Elena was wearing her vervain necklace. She was under her own control. He also noticed her hand around mine.

"Stefan," Elena said, "I love Damon."

He looked at her one last time before fleeing the room so quickly that he knocked a stack of books to the floor.

"Well, that went well." I commented. She kissed my lips, and we moved closer to each other. I couldn't believe that I'd existed before the feeling of her kiss. It was as close to heaven as I would ever get.
