I looked into your eyes and saw a world that does not exist
I looked into your eyes and saw a world I wish I was in
I'll never love someone quite the way
That I loved you
-Touched by Vast
I was only home for about ten minutes when I heard a knock at the door. I silently prayed it was Damon. I really wanted to talk to him. Things were so different now. I wasn't prepared though for what I saw when I opened the door. It was Stefan... and Damon. My first thoughts were if everyone was okay. Usually they only come here together if we need to talk about a life or death situation. I didn't even get a chance to invite them in because Stefan just walked through the door. I could tell something was off about him and he looked a little distressed.
"Okay, we all need to talk." He said while sitting on my couch and putting his head in his hands.
"What is going on?" I asked Damon as he stood next to me at the door.
"We've been caught. Lucky I haven't been thrown into a tree or anything yet." What was he talking about? We've been caught? If he was saying what I think he was saying then this could only end bad. We both walked into the living room and sat in different chairs.
"What's going on Stefan?"
"Elena, I need you to be honest. Did you really say those things about Damon?" Whaaaat? How'd he know any of this? My head snapped in Damon's direction with an accusing look. How could he do this? I thought we had a deal! I did everything he wanted of me!
"I didn't say anything!" Damon was immediately defensive and I didn't know if he was telling the truth or not, but I wanted to believe him. I really did. "He was at the Grill the whole time." Oh no no no. How could I be so stupid?
"Stefan... I did say those things." I hung my head. I didn't want Stefan to find out like this. I can't believe I so easily noticed Damon at the Grill and not Stefan.
"What exactly is going on here? Who started this all?" Stefan said and I could see all he wanted was the truth.
"She told me she liked me." Damon's cockiness didn't help anything.
"He kissed me."
"She let me."
"That's not the point." I said slightly annoyed. "Look Stefan I guess we should have been honest about what was going on but I really thought this wouldn't blow up the way it did."
"How exactly did it blow up Elena? Did he change your mind about us? "
"No Stefan." I wanted to say all the right words to make this go away but most of those words would be a lie. "He didn't change my mind. Nothing has changed. It's always been this way."
"So you've always loved him?" Woah. Who said anything about that. "You've always been aware of him, haven't you?"
"Stefan lets not do this." I said slightly under my breath.
"And you!" He turned his attention to Damon.
"You have just been waiting! Waiting for her to slip up just once and then you took advantage of it! This is all your fault!"
"It's not his fault!"
"Yes it is!" Stefan yelled looking dead set on blaming Damon for everything.
"No, it's mine. I am one the to blame." It suddenly got quite as they both stared at me. "I like Damon. There, I admit it. I basically told Damon I liked him. Then I let him kiss me. Please Stefan, just stop yelling at Damon and put the blame on me for once."
"So you are saying all of this happened because you wanted it too?" He looked so upset and I felt so guilty.
"You love him more, don't you?"
"I never said that!" I said immediately regretting this whole exchange when I saw how hurt he looked.
"You didn't need to." Stefan backed away from us, glancing in each direction. "There's been something going on for a while, hasn't there?"
"Yes." Damon and I spoke at the same time with the same flat voice. I almost felt like a child being scolded.
"Well I hope you are happy together." Stefan gave us one last dirty look before he walked out my front door. I never expected it to go this way. I should be feeling an urge to go run after Stefan but in a way I felt like I just got let off the hook. This was probably the easiest way this could have all gone. I looked back at Damon to see him staring at me. It looked like he was preparing to get yelled at and already grimacing.
"I not mad at you." I said softly. Now thinking about it, I didn't know how we could have gone back to normal after what we shared to each other. I couldn't look at Damon as my boyfriend's brother anymore. He was too special to be labeled as that and friend just wouldn't cut it.
"I don't know if you are about to slap me or hit me." Damon finally said while still having a cautious look on his face.
"I'm still deciding." I joked while stepping forward to get closer to him. "Even though I said this is my fault, I still really want to blame you."
"But you're happy about the outcome. I can see it in your eyes."
"Oh really?" I gave him a doubtful look but slid my hands into his. "I don't know what the hell we are doing here." I said while looking at our joined hands. "I'm not supposed to like you..."
"Let alone, love me. I know."
"You think I love you?" I said while smiling at him. We never really got to that place but it felt natural.
"What's not to love?"
"I'm trying not to laugh in your face."
"Just admit it, Elena. You want me. You think I'm sexy. You love my charm. You love my irresistible personality. And you love that I love you."
"Okay, I'll say it. I love you. More than one really should. It's not goo for your ego."
"Oh whatever. You love my ego." He said while wrapping his arm around me. I could only imagine what I just got myself into, but I didn't mind.
AN: The End. I know, I know. This story was so basic but it was fun. I only wrote it to help with writers block so I'm glad some of you could enjoy it. Thanks for reading.
