PS I own nothing but my story. the characters belong to their rightful owners.

The next day they drove back to Mystic Falls after the wonderful, peaceful weekend at the lakehouse. When they got back to the Gilbert house Damon carried Elena's bag up the stairs to her room.

"Damon I wanted to talk to you." Elena said nervously.

"You can talk to me about anything Elena." he assured her.

"Yeah." she said still sounding overly nervous.

"What's wrong Elena?" he asked pulling her down onto the bed when they got to her room.

"I want to turn." she said.

"You what?" he asked not sure if he heard her correctly or not.

"I want to turn. Damon I want to be with you for eternity." she said.

"Oh." he replied unsure of how to respond to that.

"Oh? That's all you have to say?" she asked worried.

"Elena, this is something you have to be 100% sure about. It's not something you can take back in a few years because you're sic of eternal life." he told her.

"I know. And I've given this a lot of though. I want this Damon." she assured him.

"And how to you intend on telling Alaric, or Jenna, or Bonnie. Caroline will be happy most likely. But what about the rest of them. How about Jeremy?" he asked.

"Do you not want me to turn?" she asked a small amount of hurt coming through her voice.

"Of course I do. I just want you to think about it a little more." he told her.

"It sounds like you're trying to stop me from turning. It's almost like you don't want me around for eternity." she said.

"I do. God I want that more than anything in the entire world. I want that so much, so that I don't have to be alone anymore in the future. But I want you to be sure. I couldn't stand it if you resented me later on." he confessed.

"I would never resent you Damon. I want you and I love you and I could for an eternity. We don't need to change anything about us, we can be the same as we are right now. I just want forever with you." she explained.

"And I want that too. So much. But what about all those dreams that you had before. Having a family. That wont be an option anymore." he said.

"I know. But its a risk I'm willing to take in order to spend an eternity with you. And if it becomes an issue later on in life, we can adopt. There are always options Damon. But the only thing that's not optional is spending my entire existence with you. The first step towards that is becoming like you. I want to change for you." she told him. Never before had anyone been willing to go so far for him and it made him feel a little bit uncomfortable.

"If I could change for you Elena. You know I would." he told her kissing her forehead.

"I know you would. But since you cant I will. I want to do this for us." she said.

"Okay. As long as you're sure. How are you going to tell everyone?" he asked.

"I'm just going to tell them. I'm not going to sugarcoat it. It's just Jenna. She doesn't know about vampires. I wont tell her anything. She doesn't need to know any different." she said.

"I have one demand though." he told her.

"what is it? I would do anything for you." she said.

"I want you to move in with me. That's it. You just live in my house with me, sleep beside me every night. That's all I want." he told her.

"Done. I will move in with you. And it will protect those I love that are still human." she agreed.

"Good. When do you want to change?" he asked.

"As soon as possible" she responded.

"Tonight?" he asked.

"Tonight." she agreed. He kissed her before pulling her back to her feet.

"Let's go confess our news." he said pulling her down the stairs. Jenna and Alaric were sitting at the kitchen table talking lowly when Damon and Elena walked in the room.

"Hey." Jenna said when she seen them.

"Hi. We need to talk to you." Elena said sitting down across from them, Damon took the seat next to her.

"Oh my God. You're not pregnant are you?" she asked aghast.

"No. God no. It's not that bad. I hope." Elena assured her aunt. Damon and Alaric snickered at where Jenna's thoughts had immediately went to.

"What is it?" Jenna demanded, overly suspicious now.

"Damon and I have been talking and we think its time we took the next step. It's time we moved in together." she said.

"Elena, you're only 18. You're so young to be moving in with someone." Jenna said worried.

"I know I'm only 18. But is it so bad that I found the love of my life so young. I want to be with him. And I want to wake up next to him every morning. I don't want more than that at the moment. But I want to move in with him. I love him Jenna. I've never felt like this before." she explained. Damon sat by her side with a wide grin on his face as he listened to her explain how she felt about him.

"Are you sure about this Elena? It's a big decision." she said still worried but not as bad as she was.

Tyler and Caroline sitting at a table. They were all smiling so they walked over.

"are you going to tell them all at the same time?" he whispered in her ear. She nodded and Caroline's eyes snapped over to her.

"We were wondering how long it was going to take you to get out of bed and over here to join us." she said.

"You may find it hard to believe but we weren't having sex. We were talking about something extremely important and some of you are going to hate it." she said.

"Okay?" Bonnie said her eyes narrowing reflexively at Damon, already deciding that whatever it was, was his fault.

"What's up?" Jeremy asked his sister, confused by the expression on her face, she looked somewhere between nervous and blissfully happy.

"Okay, this comes in two parts, I'll tell you about the tamer side first. I am moving to the boarding house with Damon." she said.

"You're moving in with him. Oh my God this is so exciting." Caroline said the possibilities coursing through her head.

"Okay, what's the second part?" Jeremy asked wearily.

"Um, okay, now some of you are going to hate this and the rest of you are going to be concerned about my decision. But I am changing for Damon. I want to be like him." she said. At first all there was was silence as everyone took that information in.

"You're changing into a vampire?" Bonnie asked unhappily.

"Yes. I know you don't approve, but sometimes you need to change to get what you want. And I want Damon forever." she tried to explain.

" I just don't understand it." Bonnie admitted.

"None of us understand it." Caroline said.

"I'll explained again. I already had to do this twice so far today. Once with Damon and once with Alaric." she said.

"It's okay. I think I get it." Caroline mused.

" You do?" Bonnie asked.

"Yeah, she's in love and she wants to be with him forever, even if that means changing everything to be with him. It's so romantic." she said leaning into Tyler's side.

"Are you sure this is what you want Elena?" Jeremy asked.

"It is. I want this." Elena said.

"Okay. Then its cool with me." Jeremy said smiling.

"And me." Caroline shot in.

"Bonnie?" Elena asked.

"I'm not okay with it. But I can live with it I guess." Bonnie said agreeing. Elena smiled and stood up.

"We better get going." Elena said.

"You better not kill her." Caroline shot in.

"I kind of have to Blondie." he said uneasily.

" Right. But you know what I mean." she said awkwardly.

There was a tense silence in the car on the way back over to the boarding house.

"There is still time to back out." he said when they pulled up in front of the house.

"I'm not backing out. But I want you to make love to me once more before I turn" she begged.

"I can do that." he said kissing her. He backed them up the stairs and lifted her onto the bed. He took his time in caressing every inch of her body with his finger tips.

"Why are you teasing me?" she asked with her voice deeper than usual.

"I'm not trying to. I'm memorizing every inch of your skin while you're still human." he told her. After he traced every inch of skin with his fingers he repeated the path with his lips. He purposely ignored the neediest part of her body during his travels.

"Damon." she begged.

"What do you need?" he asked her. He listened intently to the beats of her heart, he was going to miss that sound so much. It had become the most important sound in his existence. Her beating heart became a sort of symbol for his humanity as well as hers.

"We're going to need to exchange blood." he told her.

"Okay." she said aching for him.

"Do you want me inside you?" he asked her teasingly.

"Yes." she begged. He slipped three fingers inside her and thrust them into her over and over again. She moaned appreciatively but he knew it wasn't what she wanted.

"Damon." she begged again.

"What do you need?" he asked.

"I need you inside me. Not your fingers." she begged.

"I'll give you what you want." he promised as he kissed his way back up her body. When he got back to her lips he kissed her hungrily as he slid into her wet heat. She was his nirvana. She felt heavenly, she felt perfect. But then she always did. He clasped their hands together on the pillow behind her hand as he moved slowly within her trying to prolong the togetherness for as long as possible.

"I love you so much Elena." he said feeling his release creep up. Knowing it was time, he bit into his wrist and she wrapped her lips around the bleeding wound. He sunk his teeth into her neck and drank deeply catapulting them both into orgasm. He knew if he killed her now she wouldn't feel as much pain since she was still lost to the sensations coursing through her body. He reached out and snapped her neck and she fell dead to the bed. He rolled off of her and laid beside her waiting impatiently for her to wake up. It took a little while and he started to get worried, he had never changed someone who he had wanted desperately to come back to him before. When she gasped and opened her eyes, he sagged with relief.

"Oh thank God." he said kissing her forehead.

"I came back." she told him kissing his lips.

"You need blood." he told her getting out of the bed and rushing downstairs to grab some blood bags. When he returned she was still lying in the bed. He handed he the bags and she drank them tentatively. When her fangs elongated and the veins appeared around her eyes, he knew she had completed the transition. When she was finished, she grinned at him.

"Now you're mine for eternity." she said.

"Yeah. But now if you're up for it, I would like to claim your new vampire body for my own." he said glancing down at her still naked body.

"I'm more than up for it." she said rolling over so she was hovering over him. She reached between them and started rubbing his dick up and down until he was fully hard. When he was hard she raised herself over him and sank down engulfing his entire length inside her.

"Oh God. This still feels the same." she moaned.

"God. Fuck yes." he said as she started rotating her hips on him as he thrust upwards. The way she moved over him made him see stars, it was incredible.

"Oh God. You fit so perfectly inside me." she groaned as she moved. She could feel her orgasm and could feel that he was close too.

"I'm so close." she said.

"Me too." he grunted. When they came together she collapsed against his chest and he wrapped his arms tight around her frame.

"I love you so much. I cant wait to do this with you for eternity." he whispered.

"Me either. I mean I don't think I could ever tire of your body." she said.

"I could tire of yours either." he told her.

"You feel so right to me baby." she whispered planting a kiss to the side of his neck.

"So do you, and you will for an eternity." he responded kissing her softly before she rolled off of him and cuddled into his side for the first of countless nights.
