Prelude:

Damon POV

It has been months now...months since I lost my angel, my redemption, my everything. As I lie on the crappy mattress in this cheap motel. Will this search ever end? Will I ever find her?

I closed my eyes and willed dreams to come. Dreams of my angel's silky blond hair framing her perfect beautiful face. Her creamy skin and soft lips beckoning me. Her piercing blue eyes gazing into my soul interlocked with her just like always I couldn't see her a glimpse and she was gone. Everything goes back to that night, Running into the house. Chaos everywhere.

"She's gone!" Bonnie had screamed at him.

"NO!" I screamed into the darkness. "No! I want her back"

"Damon" A weak voice whispered

" Elena?" I snapped open my eyes.
