A/N: A short one shot I wrote basically on Twitlonger and post in on twitter and tumblr. I watched the promo and saw Elena slapping Damon (bad move Elena =P) so I decided to write my idea of what should happen =P
"You need to listen to me, and prepare yourself for what I'm about to say." Damon said in a serious tone.
"Damon, what's wrong?" Elena asked, unable to hide the concern in her voice.
"You know what's wrong, Elena." Damon replied.
"Yes... I know." She whispered...
"Klaus is here, Elena." Damon reminded her.
"I know..." Elena whispered as tears started gathering in her eyes.
"Bonnie can kill him." Damon said, waiting for the bomb to explode.
"What? How could you involve Bonnie in this?" She yelled at him.
"She involved herself!" Damon defended himself.
"Damon, she will die!"
"No, she won't. That's reserved for the bad guy of the story." Damon said and moved his hand to stroke her cheek softly.
Elena's eyes widened as the realization of what he'd just said hit her.
"No." She whispered, shaking her head furiously. He is just being too melodramatic, she thought.
"Yes Elena." Damon said.
"No... You can't die."
"But I will!" Damon shouted, tired of her denying the fact that he will die for her. He will do anything for her. Anything.
"Don't you dare!" Elena shouted back.
"Don't you dare what, Elena?" He shouted and ran a hand through his hair.
"Don't you dare die on me!" She whispered, as the tears she was holding back finally rolled down her cheeks.
"Why do you even care?"
"I just do!"
"I don't deserve your tears..." Damon said sadly.
"Don't talk please..." Elena pleaded him. She just couldn't hear him talking like that anymore... He couldn't die. Didn't he know she couldn't live without him? No. She wouldn't let him die for her.
"You just don't get it, Elena! Don't you see that the bad guy always dies in the end and the good guy always gets the happy ending?" Damon challenged her.
"Stop." Elena closed her eyes and let her tears fall.
"I will die to protect you." Damon said.
"No, shut up!" Elena screamed and slapped him on the face.
Damon looked at her fiercely and said.
"Admit that you love me."
"I hate you." Elena spat as she walked closer to him.
"Liar." She whispered in her ear.
"I hate you." She whispered as their faces came closer and closer.
"I hate you too." Damon whispered. His lips almost touching hers.
"I hate you so much..." Elena whispered.
"I hate you more." He said.
"I love you..." She whispered. "I love you so much and I hate you for it. I hate you, I hate you, I ha-"
She didn't finish her sentence, Damon crashed his lips on hers, kissing her passionately. She hesitated a little but kissed him back, opening her mouth to welcome his tongue and deepen the kiss.
When they broke the kiss, they looked in each others eyes, breathing hard.
"Love you too." Damon said and smiled at her.
Elena gave him a small smile and hugged him. She hugged him so tightly that he swore he wouldn't be able to breathe if he were human.
She buried her face in his chest and mumbled.
"Promise me... Promise me you won't die. Please."
Damon had never lied to her before, but he couldn't bear seeing her so sad, so broken.
So he lied. He lied to her for the first time.
He wrapped his arms around her and held her, let her cry until she couldn't cry anymore...
And he hoped. He hoped that once he was dead, she would at least keep a small place in her heart for him. Only him.
A/N2: So, tell me what you think. Not the best work ever but anyways.
Review! Let me know what you think.
See you! I'm finishing chapter 4 of Cold Hearted Souls now and I'll post it in a few hours!
