Set after Damon is cured and Stefan is still with Klaus. Just how far will Damon go to rescue Stefan. KLAMON (Damon/Klaus for those of you who aren't familiar with the term). Please read. Contains slashhh.

Damon's POV

All I knew was that I had to make it right. I needed to find Klaus and Stefan and save my brother from impending doom.

I took a deep breath as I rushed to the home where I knew Klaus and Stefan were residing for the time being.

The wind rustled my hair and I felt my stomach turn as I knocked lightly on the door. I assumed the original owner was most likely dead therefore, I could just walk in but I was actually somewhat afraid.

After a moment, the door creaked slowly open and I was met by the amused eyes of Klaus. A grin spread across his face as he stuck his head out "You look quite dashing," his eyes landed on my now-healed arm.

"Where is my brother?" I demanded, feeling the hate in my voice.

"Stefan, it appears you have an unexpected visitor," Klaus said, grinning as he pushed the door all the way open. I stared into the home to see a modern living room with light beige carpet and a white couch and loveseat with a glass coffee table in the middle. Stefan was sitting on the loveseat with a glass of human blood in his hand.

His eyes narrowed at me and I could see that he was afraid "Damon, why are you here?" he asked, placing the glass down and standing up.

"Oh Stefan, don't be rude," Klaus said. He turned to me "Come on in," he said lightly, waving his arm. I hesitated but Klaus urged me in, pushing my back.

Stefan had his arms crossed over his chest self conciously. He lowered his eyes.

"Stefan-what were you thinking?" I growled "You should have just let me die."

Stefan shook his head and turned his dark forest eyes to me "You don't deserve to die, Damon."

"Sit," Klaus said, pointing to the loveseat.

I figured it would be best to listen if there were any chance I could convince Klaus to let Stefan go and take me instead. I nodded and took a seat to where he was pointing.

Stefan took a seat on the couch across from me.

"Can I get you something to drink?" Klaus asked casually, his eyes still playful.

I stared up at him, trying my best to mask the hatred I felt. I smiled mockingly "I would love a drink."

He smiled "Great," he said, walking into what I assumed to be the kitchen.

"You shouldn't have come here, Damon. He is going to kill you," Stefan said through clenched teeth.

I narrowed my eyes at him "I'm going to do whatever I can to get you out of this situation."

"Just leave, Damon. We already made a deal," Stefan hissed.

"Here you are," Klaus's voice rang as he walked back into the room. He handed me a glass of blood. I breathed in the lovely scent before taking a sip. I smiled, letting it warm my veins.

Klaus sat on the loveseat beside me, stretching his arm out and turning towards me "Well, I assume you didn't come here for a tea party. What can I help you with?"

"I would like you to let Stefan go..." I said, giving a hopeful smile.

Klaus smirked, glancing at Stefan "Is he serious?"

Stefan lifted his hands up, not meeting my eyes.

Klaus turned back to me, his eyebrows lifted "And why would I do that?"

"Because I'll take his place," I said simply "I can be a much worse Ripper than Stefan."

Klaus's expression turned blank for a moment before he shook his head "Not good enough."

I took a deep breath "I'll do whatever you want...please just let my brother go," I said, practically begging.

Klaus arched an eyebrow "How far are you willing to go to save your brother?"

"I'll do whatever it takes," I said, determined. What was the worst that could happen? He would make me kill a baby in its crib? Piece of cake.

"So you will do whatever I say, no hesitation?" Klaus questioned. I had a bad feeling about where he would be going with this but I nodded.

"But I need your word that you will release Stefan," I said, making sure to say it.

His eyes were careful, as was his voice "You have my word that I will release your brother under the condition that you do as I say when I say it."

"As long as it does not involve me hurting Stefan or Elena," I added, more curious as to if that was his idea.

He nodded "Then we have a deal."

I felt my body lighten. This was it...Stefan was going to be free to go to Elena.

Stefan's head jerked up "What?" he asked.

"You aren't free yet. I need to test Damon's loyalty first," Klaus said, a wicked smirk playing at the corners of his mouth.

Stefan's eyes met mine and I could see they were torn with confusion and worry and a hint thankful.

"What do you need me to do?" I asked, thinking of the possibilities of slaughtering everyone at the grill or going next door and draining the crying baby. I was ready to do whatever it took.

Klaus smiled "Kiss me," he said.

I felt my stomach plummet "What?" I asked, unsure if I heard him right.

He smiled wider "Kiss. Me." he said each word precisely.

For a moment, I just stared between him and Stefan, who looked confused. I knew not to hesitate because a part of the deal was to not hesitate despite what he says. I swallowed back the bile in my throat and leaned forward. I closed my eyes, trying to think of someone-anyone else. The moment my lips touched his cheek, I jumped back, feeling disgusted and somewhat humiliated. I wouldn't even look at Stefan.

"What was that?" Klaus barked "That wasn't a kiss."

I ground my teeth. I could kill people but I didn't want to kiss this piece of crap "What kind of kiss would you like, then?" I asked through clenched teeth.

"Kiss me the way you would kiss Elena," Klaus said, his voice playful.

I felt anger surge through me and I could feel Stefan's eyes on me. I turned my eyes back to Klaus, who was leaning back, waiting. I took a deep breath...reminding myself that I was doing this for Stefan. With that, I climbed over Klaus, who was intentionally leaned back so far that I had to be completely on top of him to reach his mouth. I closed my eyes tightly as I pressed my mouth to his. I tried to pull back after a split second but I felt Klaus's arm wrap around my body. I had to make this good.

Without another thought, I imagined that it was Elena. Though I knew her lips were softer and more plump and her body more curved and smooth, I had to try. I slowly grabbed his face into my hands, pulling it tighter against me, making the kiss more passionate.

I was more surprised at how not unpleasant this was. It was somewhat enjoyable...not like kissing someone I despised, even though I did hate him. It felt real and passionate. The way his lips brushed against mine was alluring. The whole situation was somewhat thrilling...kissing someone you hate and fear in means to protect someone else. I wasn't even sure if the feelings in my gut were from fear, disgust or pleasure.

After a moment, I pulled back only to have Klaus grab my face and yank it back to his, crushing his lips with mine. I felt a smirk on my lips;. I liked the fierceness of this. I had never had a real, intense kiss with a man before. I liked it, though.

His lips parted and I instantly took access to his mouth, to taste him. If he wanted to play this way then I would make it good. The moment I touched my tongue to his, I felt his arms tighten around me as he fought for dominance. That was when I took his lower lip into my mouth, nibbling gently on it. I felt his muscles tighten beneath me as I pierced the delicate skin. I licked the blood that dripped slowly.

I could feel him breath a sigh into my mouth. I knew what to do next, I gently slid my tongue along his teeth, letting it brush delicately against his canine. I grinned when I felt his entire body shudder and before I knew it, I was on my back, Klaus on top of me. His eyes were glowing yellow and double canines sprouted as he hissed dangerously.

My stomach turned and I felt fear seep through my veins.

"Klaus-stop!" Stefan's worried voice broke.

I had completely forgotten he was in the room. I narrowed my eyes at Klaus and felt my lips curling into a smirk as he grinned. His eyes turned back normal and he just watched me with an unknown look in his eyes. He licked up the blood that was left on his lips and pinned my arms over my head.

"You are free, Stefan," Klaus said, not moving his eyes off of me.

I glanced over to Stefan, who wore a worried expression.

"Go, Stefan," I said "Elena needs you."

Elena...her name sent chills through me. I would never be able to look into those chocolatey eyes ever again. I would never be able to feel the warm embrace she made me feel.

Stefan watched us for a moment "Damon, you don't need to do this. It's wrong," he said.

"Get out of here before I take you both," Klaus said, his eyes playful "Make me a Salvatore sandwich."

Stefan gave me one last apologetic glance before disappearing out the door. Klaus turned his eyes back to me.

I stared up at him, wondering what he could have planned next. He simply just smirked, his eyes wandering over my body "This is going to be quite fun."

I couldn't help the smirk I gave him back. I thought that this would be bad, but what could really be so terrible? I felt a twige of excitement as he moved his mouth back to mine.

Really hope you enjoyed this. Would appreciate review. Please and thank you. _
