Title: Not enough
A/N: Post "Rose".
Sitting on her bed, Elena fought back tears. As soon as she'd gotten home she'd drunk water laced with Vervain. She wasn't going to leave herself that vulnerable without her necklace – that, thanks to Damon was once again around her neck. Not after Elijah had managed to compel her. She thought about Damon's confession of love. She wanted to tell him that she loved him too. She did. She was IN love with Stefan – as she'd told Damon, it was Stefan, it would always be Stefan – but she did love Damon. But she couldn't tell him that. It would only hurt him more to know that she loved him, but loved his brother more.
Caroline had forced her to read Twilight that summer before she met Stefan, and she realized that, even though he was a Vampire, Damon was her Jacob. The one she loved, but not enough for it to change anything. Not enough to leave Stefan and be with him. At least in the books Jacob had found someone, and been happy in the end. She honestly hoped the same would happen for Damon.
It was too bad Rose had left. She'd said she had a thing for 'bad boys', and Damon certainly fit that description. She thought the two of them might actually get along very well. But Rose was gone…
A/N: So I'm playing with the idea of a Damon/Rose fic… Anyone want me continue this with Damon/Rose? I like Damon better than Stefan but, I'm not a Damon/Elena shipper.
I hate love triangles, so I really, really want him to get over Elena. And his comment about how he doesn't deserve Elena, but Stefan does... I agree, because I think he deserves better than Elena. Not that she's a bad person, but I do think some part of her heart will always belong to Stefan, and I think Damon deserves better. I think he'd always have his doubts, just like Stefan does now.
PS: I miss Lexie... killing her is the one thing I'm really mad at Damon for...
