~Happy Reading!

'I will be the one to prey on you discreetly.'

Damon walked into his home, fully sated with his daily dose of Bonnie at around 3:30 am. The house was dark, silent, and seemingly empty. He figured that if Stefan and Elena were here, they were asleep by now.

"Why are you in so late?" Stefan asked, hiding his smile at the way Damon jumped at his voice.

"What the hell are you doing sitting in the dark at 3:30 am? And you think I'm a creep." He regains his composure quickly and throws his smooth leather jacket onto the couch.

"I was waiting for you, brother. I was worried. You understand." He says this with a tinge of sarcasm, that Damon is sure he's picked up from him. "Where were you?"

"Why does it matter?"

"Just curious, is all."

"I was getting a snack." He smirked and made an attempt to walk up the stairs.

"Since when is Bonnie a snack?" Stefan asked cleverly.

"Since when are my whereabouts any of your business?"

"You can't mess with her, Damon. I swear,"

"Woah, woah, woah. Don't get your pristine panties in a bunch. I never even said I was with the witch." He shoved his brother to the side, climbing up the stairs.

"I can smell her on you." Stefan spoke calmly.

"We ran into each other, and spoke briefly." He's beyond annoyed that his little brother is playing 20 questions, almost demanding answers about his witch.

"I don't think that kind of scent is caught from "bumping into each other"."

Damon sped to stand in front of his younger sibling. His face turned into a vicious grimace.

It angers him, not because he doesn't want people to know, but because Bonnie doesn't want people to know about the two of them. He wasn't upset with her when she said that. He understands that the people they know are nags and would not let her forget how awful of a person they think he is.

"Butt. Out." He sneers through clenched teeth.

Stefan s took a step closer, a challenging look on his face. "Or what?"

"Do you really want to get into this with your judgmental girlfriend a few rooms away?"

"Do you really want to get into this with your bed buddy's best friend a few rooms away?"

Damon slammed Stefan into the wall, his forearm pressing against his throat. His blue eyes bore into the green ones staring mischievously back at him.

"Why do you even give a shit? I'm not admitting to anything, but Bonnie was fine before you showed up. She doesn't need you riding in on your white horse saving her from the likes of me."

"Yeah, she does. She's just falling for your lies and you're probably manipulating her,"

"I'm not manipulating her to do anything with me! Please don't insult me."

Stefan pushed Damon off him. "I'm jut saying, if she gets hurt emotionally or physically, there will be hell to pay."

"Who should I make the check out to? My younger, weaker, far less superior brother?" He chuckles at the threat. "Don't be surprised if the check bounces."

By the time whole Inquisition is over, Damon doesn't feel like sleeping in the same house with his brother. He makes his way back to the root of the whole problem. Bonnie'.

She lies awake on her bed reading a book and he's kind of astonished she's still awake at such an hour. He quickly and quietly plopped down next to her, reading over her shoulder.

She smiles. "Back so soon?"

"Stefan." He says, his voice thick with irritation.

She folds the page over and sits back on the bed, while he gets up and wanders around her room.

"What happened?

"He sniffed me. He's hanging around that dog a little too much. You know what they say. He who lies with dogs,"

"Catches fleas. You're oh so clever. Spare me. What'd he say? Does he know?" Her voice has a nervous edge that he is not fond of. At all.

The way he sees it, anyone would be happy to have him as their significant other. Aside from those that actually know him. But Bonnie does see the good in him and that gives him the desire to do better. But he doesn't want her to know that. He doesn't want to seem like he's gone soft.

"Probably. Is it really that devastating to you? You're a bit rude this evening."

"She who sleeps with narcissistic vampires..."

"You're oh so clever, spare me." He mocks with a grin.

"It's not devastating, but he'll tell Elena, who will tell Caroline, who tell everyone on God's green earth. It's a snowball affect and not one that I want to have to deal with. They will never let up. They'll just keep dragging it on and on and on, until I finally decide to just end it." She says with a frown.

He feels a pang at his heart, watching her sadden at the thought of their relationship coming to an end.

"You decide to end it?" She gives him a look and he knows she's in no mood. "I'm sorry. I just don't see why you're letting your friends dictate your life. They should be the last people judging anyone. Elena is a closeted narcissist and Caroline, well Caroline's slept with me, and let me tell you,"

"How about you don't?"

He smiles and goes to kiss her. She stops him. "I don't want Stefan to start stalking us and trying to pry us apart. Okay?"

He kisses along her jawline and neck. She arches her body into him and he loves they way her body fits into his.

"Don't worry. I'll be the only one to prey on you discreetly." His teeth pierce her skin and he allows the red liquid to fulfill his needs, like the predator he is.

How was it? I did this one really quick, I've been doing a lot of thanksgiving prep so I felt like getting this out. Thanks guys!
