I know you guys are going to hate me for what I'm about to say but, this is the last chapter for this story. I know I could have done more, but I really had no idea what to else to have Damon and Elena do while they were away from Mystic Falls. I'm sorry, but it's the end. However, I did write an ending for the story because I don't like it when people stop writing a story and there is no actual ending to it.

Enjoy!


~1 week later~


Elena and Damon were driving, on the way back to Mystic Falls. Elena had a big smile on her face as she had her head back, letting the air run through her hair.
"We should go back there sometime." Elena said
"We can go back whenever you want." Damon looked at Elena before looking back at the road. Elena moved her head, held out her hand and looked at the ring. She could help but smile. It wasn't something she really expected from Damon, but she's glad he did it.


Damon pulled up in front of the Gilbert house and looked at Elena. Elena was looking at the house, smiling. She took a deep breath and before she knew it Damon was blocking her view of the house. Elena gave Damon a 'really?' look before he opened up the car door for Elena.
"I can get it myself." Elena said as she stepped out of the car.
"I know." She looked at him and smiled. Damon leaned in for a kiss, but it was interrupted by a voice from the Gilbert porch.
"Hey! Elena!" Elena looked to see Jeremy standing on the porch looking at her and Damon. For some reason she couldn't help but blush.
"I'll leave your stuff in your room." Damon whispered to her before starting to walk towards the trunk. Elena almost ran up to Jeremy and gave him a big hug.
"I've missed you sis." Jeremy said with a smile after hugging Elena.
"Missed you to Jer." Elena looked behind her, thinking that she would see Damon, but he was nowhere to be found. 'He probably used the window' Elena thought. Elena looked back at Jeremy and they went into the house.

Elena walked into the Gilbert house only expecting to see Alaric, but instead she was surprised.
"Surprise." She heard Caroline and Bonnie shout from the living room. Elena's eyes went wide as she saw them along with Matt, Tyler, and Alaric in the living room.
"How did you guys know that I was coming back?" Elena asked them as Bonnie and Caroline came up to her for hugs.
"I told them." Elena turned around to see Damon, standing at the bottom of the stairs. "I called them on the way back while you were sleeping." Damon walked closer to Elena. "I thought you would like it if they surprised you." Elena smiled as she hugged Damon.
"I still think he's been replaced by an alien." Bonnie whispered to Caroline which made her chuckle. Damon gave them a glare which made them quiet.
"Elena," Caroline started after Elena turned around to them. ", tell us about what happened."
"Yeah, we're dying to know." Bonnie added.
"Before you tell us, first thing's first." Alaric walked into the kitchen and came out carrying a cake.
"A cake." Elena smiled as Alaric brought it closer to her. "Who made it?" Elena looked around at her friends.
"The store." Matt said with a slight smile. "Caroline wanted to make one but we ended up all chipping in for it." Elena smiled before she hugged Matt.


~Flashbacks~


"Stefan, you should leave." Damon said standing in front of Elena.
"I just want to talk to Elena." Stefan said calmly.
"Why?" Elena asked peaking her head out from behind Damon.
"Do I need a reason?"
"Yes." Damon said to Stefan. Elena looked at Stefan, trying to study his face.
"Okay." Elena said after a little while. Damon turned around and looked at her.
"What?" He asked.
"I'll talk to him." Elena looked into Damon's eyes. Damon looked at her with concerned eye while hers were pleading with him to let her talk with Stefan.
"I'll wait in the other room." Damon said with slight defeat. Elena watched Damon walk into the kitchen before turning to Stefan, who was now standing in front of her.

"What do you want to talk about?" Elena carefully asked Stefan.
"I'm sorry Elena. I've been doing some thinking and I should never have acted the way I did when you chose Damon." Elena let a small smile appear on her face. "I don't want you to be scared of me." Stefan said before taking a small step closer to Elena. "I'm going away from Mystic Falls and from you for a while." Elena looked at Stefan with some sadness in her eyes. "I need time to think about everything." Elena nodded her head, understanding what he meant. Elena gave Stefan a hug, not knowing how long it would be before she saw him again. Stefan kissed her on the top of her head. "Goodbye Elena." Stefan sped out the house, leaving Elena with Damon.


"I saw him Damon." Elena said with slight, unnoticeable panic in her voice.
"Who?" Damon asked Elena as he looked at her.
"Klaus." Realization came across Damon's face that was soon replaced with concern for Elena. "Where did you see him Elena?" Elena didn't answer, instead she looked behind Damon. Damon turned around and saw Klaus standing, looking at them. "What do you want?" Damon asked Klaus.
"I'm not here to hurt you." Klaus said to Damon and Elena.
"Why do I find that hard to believe?" Damon asked Klaus.
"I'm just here to offer a deal."
"Why?" Elena asked. Klaus took a few steps closer to them.
"I've herd you two are getting awfully close. I meant what I said when I told you I want to protect you, but how long will it be before he turns you into a vampire?" Klaus looked at Damon. "5, 10 years? I just want to offer something that will benefit us both." Klaus looked to Elena.
"What is it?" Elena asked.
"Are you honestly going to listen to him?" Damon asked Elena after he turned to face her.
"No harm in listening. It's not like we absolutely have to do what he says." Elena looked into Damon's eyes."
"Here's my deal," Damon and Elena looked at Klaus. ", before he eventually turns you, have a child or two." Elena looked at him with a questionable look on her face.
"You don't want to run out of Hybrids do you?" Damon asked. Elena looked up to him. "Every few hundred years there will be a doppelganger that you would be able to take blood from and you would be able to create more hyrbids." Elena looked at Klaus with widened eyes.

"You want me to have children so you will eventually be able to create more hybrids?" Elena asked Klaus with slight disbelief in her voice.
"That's only before," Klaus looked from Elena to Damon ", he turns you." Damon was basically glaring at Klaus.
"So that's it?" Klaus looked at Elena. "I have a kid before he turns be and you'll leave us alone?"
"Don't tell me you're actually considering his offer Elena." Damon said after he turned to Elena.
"It's either that or I turn and he murders everyone I know because he can't make more hybrids." Damon's eyes softened a little after hearing Elena's short but logical explanation. "Listen to her. She's a smart one, unlike Katerina." Klaus disappeared in a flash before Damon was able to see him.


~End of Flashbacks~


"Why would Klaus assume that you'd turn into a vampire?" Matt asked Elena who was sitting on the couch next to Damon. Caroline was sitting on Tyler's lap, just like Bonnie and Jeremy were going. Alaric was sitting next to Damon and Elena on the couch while Matt was the only person standing.
"Do you want to tell them or should I?" Damon asked Elena in a whisper. Elena couldn't help but slightly blush before she showed everyone the ring on her finger. Caroline couldn't help but have a huge smile appear on her face.
"Are you serious?" Alaric asked Elena, almost protectively.
"Come on Rick, be happy." Damon said after turning to him.
"How come you didn't call and tell us?" Bonnie asked Elena.
"He wanted to keep it a surprise." Elena nodded her head towards Damon.
"I don't know if I like this." Alaric said out loud to Damon and Elena.
"Oh, come on Rick. You can't wait for me to be part of the family." Damon said with a smirk to Alaric. Elena laid her head on Damon's shoulder.
"Well, I have to go." Matt said before taking a step closer Elena and Damon. "Congratulations." He said with a smile before walking out of the Gilbert house.

"I'm gonna go clean the kitchen." Alaric said before getting up and walking in to the kitchen. Damon looked at Caroline and Tyler, only to see them kissing.
"Oh, come on." He complained
"It's not like you and Elena don't do it." Tyler said to Damon.
"Shut it Lockwood." Damon replied to Tyler.
"Be nice Damon." Elena looked up at Damon.
"Let's go Ty." Caroline said to Tyler before looking at Damon and Elena. "Let's give them some privacy." She said with a smile before the two of them left.

"What about you two?" Damon asked Jeremy and Bonnie.
"What about us?" Jeremy asked.
"I'm pretty sure he wants to be alone with your sister." Bonnie said to Jeremy before he looked at Elena with a slight smile. "Let's just go hang with Caroline and Tyler." Bonnie said before getting up. Elena got up and gave Bonnie a big hug. They smiled at each other before Bonnie and Jeremy left.

Elena turned to Damon.
"So, what now?" She asked him.
"Well, I have an idea." Damon said with a smirk before getting up to kiss Elena.
"I love you." She whispered to him.
"I love you to, Elena." Damon said with a smile before kissing Elena.


Thanks for sticking with me through the seven chapters for this story when I originally was only going to have it a oneshot.

I'm going to start a story in two weeks to make up for ending this story. Please check out my other stories (listed on my profile) for something else to read if you want to continue reading my stories.
