Chapter 22

"So what are we watching?" I asked Damon.

Damon placed his bowl of ice cream on his nightstand and walked over to his DVD player. "Well we will start with 'It's Complicated' and then we will move onto 'Blood Night'." He said with a smirk.

"Ugh. Seriously Damon? You know I am not a huge fan of horror movies." I said with a mouthful of ice cream.

"Fine we will watch 'Red Riding Hood' after Meryl Streep."

"OK." I said

"Then…we will watch 'Blood Night'."

I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Fine." I said scooping up another spoonful of ice cream. "But you owe me."

Damon walked back over to the bed and plopped himself down. "I am indebted to you for life Miss Elena." He said with a genuine smile.

"Good to know."

Damon grabbed his bowl of ice cream off his night stand. "I will even let you share my ice cream." He said leaning his bowl in my direction.

"Well thank you." I said as I scooped up the last of his Rocky Road.

"Ah of course you pick the last bit of my favorite kind."

I put half the spoon in my mouth and ate about half the ice cream. "I guess I will share." Then I spoon fed Damon the rest. I felt like it was in slow motion the way his lips made their way up the cold spoon.

"Mmmmm. Tastes even better when you feed it to me." Damon said with a smirk.

Damon dug his spoon into my bowl to get a spoonful of Chocolate and brought it in front of my lips. I looked at him then back at the spoon before leaning forward and covering it with my mouth, "Yummy." I said. Damon continued to eat from my bowl. "Well I think I am done…I am starting to get cold. I was about to put my bowl on the night stand on my side of the bed but Damon stopped me.

"I'll take it." He said grabbing the bowl from me. "I will be back in a few minutes." He said before he quickly disapeared. I pulled the blankets closer to me; the ice cream definitly made me cold.

When Damon came back he was shirtless and wearing some loose fitting black sweatpants or pajama pants that sat low on his waist.

"Ready to start the movie?" He asked as he climbed back into his bed and swung the blankets over his legs.

"Yup." I replied as I slid myself further into the bed and got more comfortable.

We finished 'It's Complicated'. Damon got out of bed and walked over to his DVD player to put on the next movie. He bent down to put the DVD in and I couldn't help but stare at his backside…longer then I probably should have.

Damon walked back over to his bed and got in. I pulled the blankets to me a little more.

"Are you cold?"

"A little. That ice cream did a number on my body temperature." I said with a small smile.

"Well, then come over here beautiful." Damon said with a smirk.

I scooted over towards his warm body and he wrapped his arm around me.

"I think you are going to love this movie." I said as I laid my head on his chest.

"A movie about wolves…oh yea why wouldn't I." He said in a sarcastic tone.

Damons hand moved from my shoulders to the middle of my back by the time we finished watching 'Red Riding Hood'. I was OK with that… I never feel safer then I did when I was with Damon…so I was more then OK with that.

"See wasn't that an awesome movie?" I asked looking up at him.

"It was…OK…I guess. Now it is time to watch the really good movie." Damon said sounding extra excited about the last part.

"Uhhh." I complained.

Damon made his way back over to the DVD player to put on the movie he had been waiting to watch. "Why do you hate scary movies so much?" Damon asked.

"They give me nightmares." I answered.

"Well." He said walking back over to his bed. "You are sleeping here tonight. Do you feel safe with me?" He asked as he got into bed.

"Of course." I answered without hesatation.

"Then you've got nuthin' to worry about."

Damon got settled into bed and pulled me towards him. I moved myself around a little to get comfortable against him. The movie began and I took a deep breath in and then let it out in the form of a small sigh.

About forty minutes into the movie it was already getting extremley scary. I scooted over even closer to Damon and put my arm on his chest.

"God the movie isn't even half over yet and I am already scared to death." I said as I burried my head into Damon's chest.

"So I guess I shouldn't ask you to go grab me a drink from the basement." Damon said with a smirk.

I lightly slapped him. "No. And don't even think about leaving me here."

The movie ended and I was relieved. Although watching a scary movie with Damon was not as bad as watching it alone.

"So you want to go shut off the lights?" He asked.

"No, I am cold." I said moving away from him so he could get up.

"Your still cold." He asked as he got up shut the lights off and was getting back into bed at vampire speed. "Come here." He said as he pulled me in towards his chest and drapped his arm over my stomach.

I turned arounbd to face Damon. "So I guess the movie wasn't that bad." I said in a quiet voice.

"I knew you would like watching scary movies with your…" He paused to think of a name for what he is.

"Gurdian Angel." I said softly looking in his beautiful eyes.

He rubbed his thumb on my cheek. "Well aren't you two all cozy."

I jumped and Damon sat right up. "Isobel." He hissed.

My heart began to race, Damon must have noticed because he grabbed my hand and squeezed it.

"Calm down Damon. I just wanted to let you know I am back in town for a little while."

"Why?" Damon asked in the same tone as earlier.

"Katherine wanted me to keep an eye on Elena."

"Why?" Damon asked with more of a confused tone.

"Damon." Isobel said in a condescending tone. "You don't need to worry about that."

Before I could blink she was gone.

"What the hell was that?" I asked in a shaky voice.
