A/N: I came up with this after I saw "Klaus". I hope you guys enjoy!


"You can all go to hell." Damon said as he left.

"I'll talk to him." I said staring at Damon as he left. Stefan nodded and said he was going to hunt. Elijah left without another word. I figured it was best that we were alone; he always opened up more when we were. I decided to wait a while before I went to talk to him to give him a chance to cool down.

{30 minutes later}

I walked to Damon's room to see Andie running towards the front door. I saw her holding her neck and anger surged through me. I looked into Damon's room to see him sitting on his bed with his head in his hands. Seeing him in such a vulnerable state made the feeling of anger fade and was replaced with concern.

"Damon, what happened to Andie?" I asked gingerly. I knew he was tense and upset and could snap at any moment.

"I told her to leave, she didn't listen. You should be glad I restrained myself to let her go. You should leave as well."

"No." I knew I should have left, anyone in their right mind would have, given the state of mind that Damon was in, but I knew he needed comfort. In a matter of seconds, he was in front of me staring in my eyes.

"Why are you here?"

"I need to talk to you." I said walking inside his room.

"About what?" he asked turning to face me.

"I need you to apologize to Elijah, Damon."

He walked over to me and looked into my eyes. "I don't trust him Elena and I definitely don't trust him with your life."

"Elijah is a man of his word. He will protect me."

"You're so fucking trusting, it's insane." He said rolling his eyes. I understood his point but I truly believed that Elijah could do it.

"Damon, please. Apologize to him. For me." I said putting my hand on his arm.

He looked in debate with himself. I hoped that he would agree and do it. I knew that Elijah could do it and more so, I didn't want Damon risking his life for me. I needed him alive. I waited for him to respond.

"Alright Elena." He sighed. "Just know that I'm only doing this for you." He kissed my forehead.

"I wouldn't have it any other way. Let's go." I smiled as I grabbed his hand and went to find Elijah. We found him in the parlor. I gave Damon's hand a squeeze for encouragement and stood back as he approached Elijah.

"I'm sorry. I want you to know that I only trust you for Elena's sake and if you betray her, I will find a way to kill you." He said.

"I understand and I accept your apology. I am a man of my word. Elena will be safe." Elijah said.

"I know she will, I will make sure of it, even if we have your help." He said as he walked away. He turned and gave me a smile before disappearing into his room. I knew that what had just happened was probably the best apology for Elijah, or anyone for that matter, that Damon could muster. I smiled knowing that he did this for me because he cared for me and he loved me. I also knew that deep down I loved him too. And someday, when and if we made it through this Klaus threat, I would finally let him know it.

How was it? Please review! :)
