Disclaimer: I do not own TVD or its characters

Warning: Characters are most likely OOC, and I apologize now for any mistakes you come across.

Oh oh oh, there's a place that I know
It's not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away?
Or will you stay
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return?
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am

-MY DARK SIDE, by:Kelly Clarkson

As soon as Bonnie's eyes opened she found herself pulled into Damon's tight embrace.

He held onto her as if letting go would mean she would vanish before his eyes.

Part of her wanted to whisper words of comfort and reassurance to him, but the darker side of her replayed the wolves attack on loop in her mind.

It was she who had put their lives in danger, and as she thought of every wrong she had done in her two years as a vampire she realized that just by existing she was putting

Damon and the others at risk by being in Fells Church.

She sucked in an unneeded breath trying to think of a way to explain this to Damon.

This was her first mistake, for as soon as she took that breath her senses burst to life, a heavenly scent made her throat ache and her fangs lengthen.


Three sets of heart beats pounded in her ears almost painfully, beckoning for her to find their owners and end the steady drumming.

She struggled to keep a level head; gripping Damon's arms tightly as she pushed him slightly back to look at him.

He must have seen the strain in her eyes, because his face was a mask of confusion and then worry.

"Y-you shouldn't have brought me here." She forced the words out, trying to retain what control she had left.

Speaking was her second mistake; she could hear the footsteps hurrying up the stairs as soon as the sentence was out.

The heart beats hammered faster in excitement and became deafeningly loud as they're source neared the room.

"That's not exactly what I pictured you would say when you woke up."

Though he wore a smirk she could hear a hint of pain in his tone.

"No, Damon-"

Before she could explain the door burst open and she ripped herself from his arms, a hiss escaping her lips as the scent of fresh blood hit her full force.

"Bonn-" Elena began, and then stopped.

Her eyes widened as she stared at the red head eyeing them with her fangs bared.

She stood frozen, the others mimicking her; they knew it would be a mistake to come any closer, and an even bigger mistake to step back.

Elena knew perfectly well what being a vampire was like, how the thirst for blood could over power you rendering you unable to think.

It takes some vampires years to learn control, and before Bonnie had come back to fells church her diet was that of a natural predator who stalked and killed its prey without


Damon stood slowly; he had never felt as much like a fool as he did in this moment.

He had been elated that Bonnie would be okay, that he hadn't thought much about her circumstances before the wolves had attacked.

He had not yet had the chance to get her used to being around humans without giving in to her predator instincts.

In a move too fast for the human eye he had her pinned against the wall in an iron grip.

Her struggles were futile his age giving him the strength to keep his hold on her while Stefan got the humans out of harm's way.

Once Elena, Matt, and Meredith were far enough away Bonnie's fangs retracted and she stopped fighting to free herself.

Damon loosened his grip shooting her an apologetic look.

"Damon I can't stay here." She breathed.

"I gathered as much, don't worry we can go back to the cabin at once."

"No, I mean in this town."

"We can go where ever you wish."

"You don't understand, I need to leave and you should stay here. I did awful things before I came here, that wolf pack wasn't the only things that want me dead, and I cannot

put you or the others in danger."

"No, it is you who doesn't understand little bird. I will not let you face any danger alone, never again. Whatever is coming we will all stand by you and fight like we have so many times in the past."

"I am the danger, don't you get that? I can never be the girl I once was because the dark side of me, the part of me that loves the thrill of the kill is only waiting in the

shadows. I wanted to kill them Damon, to bleed them all dry!" She threw her hands up in exasperation.

"You were just taken by surprise that's all, besides nothing happened."

"Yes, only because you stopped me, but what about when you aren't there to hold me back?"

He looked straight into her eyes, willing her to hear the truth of his words.

"I will always be there to keep you safe, that includes keeping you from doing anything you might regret later. I give you my word little bird."

She knew it was pointless to argue with him, and he had given his word, Damon always kept his word.

Reluctantly she nodded.

"Okay. Maybe you were right; maybe it just took me by surprise. I guess we will find out when they return."

"And if I am wrong, I promise that I won't let you harm a hair on their heads. Well, maybe except for Mutt."

She scoffed and looked at him pointedly.

"I was only kidding, I won't let you harm any of them." He chuckled darkly.

He pulled her close to him, placing a chaste kiss upon her head, relishing in the fact that she was okay and that she was his.

AN: Hola. Okay so this chapter sucked, well to me anyways. I wrote and rewrote it a bazillion times and still am not too happy with it. Hopefully the next chapter will be far better than this one and my inspiration will come back to me. Well thank you for putting up for me I know I have been such a bad fan fic author lately… anyways thank you for reading, and leave me some love, you guys after all are a big part of my inspiration =)
