Being Human

Stefan is wrong; there's nothing human left in him. Moreover, he doesn't miss it - humanity, with its ridiculous belief in something better; humanity, with its insistence on hope in the face of all evidence to the contrary.

Damon is a simple monster; he savors the simple pleasures, the finest being the rush of hot blood tinged with fear blooming in his mouth.

Yet here he stands, a shadow over her bed and her dreams. Instead of tasting the wounded-bird fluttering of her heart, he strokes her cheek, replaying her words: "I'm sorry...You lost her, too."

Stefan is wrong.
