Hey! I finally finished episode 11, sorry it took longer than normal

Thank you strem1984 and DelenaFandom for following my story

So far this episode has the most Delena scenes which is why it took longer than normal

OMG, one of my new favourite Vampire Diaries episodes is 'My Brother's Keeper', I'm sure you all know why ;) Delena finally happened and it only took 4 seasons lol.

Anything I make the characters think are completely by me since you can't read peoples mind on T.V. So we have no idea what the character are thinking. Like dreams, thoughts will be in italic.

Sadly I don't own Vampire Diaries nor do I own Damon : ( Vampire diaries belongs to L J Smith and the CW.

Driving with no destination in mind with tears in her eyes, Elena speed up a bit to get further away from Stefan and the Boarding House. No more lies Stefan had told her yet he never told her she could pass as an identical twin for his ex-vampire girlfriend Katherine. Elena blinked back her tears that were threatening to fall, she gasped when a person clad in black appeared in the middle of the road.

Elena slammed on the breaks but was too late and hit the person. The windshield of her car got a massive crack from the impact which sent her car flipping over again and again. She gasped in pain when the car finally stopped flipping over and landed upside down. Coughing, Elena looked out the broken window on the driver's side and saw the figure in black lying in the middle of the road. His broken limbs snapping back into place.

Elena freaked out, fearful for her life she tried to undo her seat belt which was holding her upside-down in the car chair but her efforts were wasted because to seat belt wouldn't budge. Elena started crying and panicking now that the mysterious person was headed towards her and her wrecked car. As the black clad person got closer Elena began screaming, desperately tugging on her seatbelt. Louder and louder she screamed when the person kneeled down when suddenly she vanished with inhuman speed.

Unsure why she was still alive and where the person who nearly killed went, Elena tried to shift forward in her seat to get a better look outside. She screamed, turning to face away when someone appeared right at the window she was looking out.

"How you doing in there?" Damon spoke in a soft voice. Elena turned her head to look at him, recognizing his silky voice.

"Damon." Elena spoke through her tears, as she looked at him.

"You look stuck." Damon commented in a concerned voice. He stood up and used his vampire speed and strength to pull open the car door, getting easier access to Elena.

"It's my seatbelt. I can't get it off." Elena told Damon why she was stuck, with tears gathering in her eyes.

"Shh, shh, shh." Damon shushed her. "Let me get you out of here. I want you to put your hands on the roof." Elena obeyed to his calming voice and raised her arms to the car roof. "Just like that." Damon praised her, "You ready?" Elena nodded. "1…2…3," Damon countered slowly and softy, preparing Elena for when he will get her out of the car. He reached in and grabbed the seatbelt and with his vampire strength, he ripped it releasing Elena.

Elena fell from her seat then Damon gently lifted her from the car "gotcha." He held her in his arms standing up from the trashed car. "You okay? Can you stand? Is anything broken?" Damon question in a commanding yet caring voice. Elena drowsily shook her head moaning, dizzy from her car flipping over.

Damon ever so carefully set her on her feet, yet not letting go of her completely. Elena slipped, to dizzy to stand, but Damon gracefully caught her by the waist. "Whoa, you're fading fast, Elena. Elena, look at me. Focus. Look at me." Damon placed his thumb and Elena lower lip and chin to hold her head steading as he spoke to her. Elena tiredly opened her eyes, looking at Damon with tears in her eyes and running down her checks. "Okay." Damon said softly once she had focused on him.

"I look like her." Brokenly Elena whispered to Damon.

"What?" Damon questioned just as Elena eyes rolled to the back of her head as she passed out. Damon caught her before she hit the road, gently lowering her to the ground, kneeling so that she was half on his lap, half off. Stroking her hair, looking at her face wondering what to do with her Damon looked around, " upsy-daisy" He spoke as he gathered her limp body into his arms and walked away, cradling her to his hard body.


Where am I? Elena thought as she groggily woke up, she noticed she was in a car and a thumping pain in her head. Turning she looked at the driver just as he looked at her and smirked.

"Morning." Damon spoke lazily watching Elena.

"Where are we?" Elena voiced her thoughts to the blue eyed vampire sitting beside her.

"Georgia." Damon drawled out the word.

"Georgia?" Elena questioned thinking she misheard him. Damon looked at her. "No,no,no, were not. Seriously, Damon, where are we?"

"Seriously, were in Georgia." Damon spoke in complete seriousness, still watching her.

"Ugh." Elena groaned from her pain throughout her body.

"How you feeling?" Damon asked quietly, concerned.

"I...I…" Elena stammered, unable to say anything.

"There's no broken bones. I checked." Damon told her when it became clear she would not speak.

"My car. There was a man… I hit a man. But then he got back up and – who was that?" Elena remembered what happened last night when she left the Boarding House.

"That's what I would like to know." Damon said in reply to he questioned.

"Where's my phone?" Elena started looking around in her seat for her phone while Damon turned his head and looked out the driver's side window. "Okay, we really need to go back. Nobody knows where I am. Pull over." Damon made no move to pull over or reply to Elena ordering him around. "I mean it, Damon. Pull over." This time Damon looked at her but still continued to drive, not stopping the car. "I mean it. Stop the car."

Rolling his eyes Damon gave up, "Oh, you were so much more fun when you were asleep." Damon slowed down and pulled into a stop in the middle of the road. Elena opened her door leaning forward as she climbed out of Damon's light blue car, wincing at the pain running everywhere through her body. Damon watched her from over the top of her car as she leaned forward and rested her hands on her knees, taking a deep breath. In the blink of an eye Damon appeared next to her.

"Hey" Damon carefully grabbed her arm to help her stand up right.

"I'm fine." Elena told Damon softy, confused as the why the bad Salvatore brother was helping her. She stepped back from him "We have to go back."

"Oh, come on" Damon looked around at the fields as he spoke "Look, we've already come this far." He flashed her his oh so sexy smirk.

"Why are you doing this? I can't be in Georgia. I wrecked my car. I have to go home. This is kidnapping."

"That's a little melodramatic, don't you think?" Damon smirked at her again and raised his eyebrows.

"You're not funny. You can't do this. I'm not going to Georgia."

"You're in Georgia." Damon leaned against his car, arms crossed over his muscular chest as Elena looked around her "Without you magic little necklace, I might add." Hearing Damon say this Elena touched her neck when her vervain filled locker used to be "I could very easily make you …agreeable." Damon told Elena in a casual tone.

"What are you trying to prove?" Elena face him outraged at what he suggested, well threatened. Before Damon could respond a phone rang. Elena looked at Damon accusingly "That's my phone." Damon half smirked at Elena as he reached to his back pocket of his jeans to retrieve to ringing phone and read the caller id.

"Mmmm. It's you boyfriend." He held the phone out to Elena for her to answer. Elena looked away, not wanting to speak to Stefan. "I'll take it." Damon answered the call "Elena's phone…"

Cut to Stefan at the Salvatore Boarding House

"Where is she? Why do you have her phone?" Stefan asked immediately when he heard his brother's voice instead of Elena's.

Cut to Damon and Elena, both leaning against Damon's car

"Elena?" Elena looked at Damon when he spoke her name into the phone. "No, she's right here." Damon looked at her "and, yes, she's fine."

Cut back to Stefan in his room

"Where are you? Let me speak to her." He demanded of his brother.

Cut to Damon and Elena

Damon held the phone out to Elena. "He wants to talk to you." Elena eyed her phone.

"Mm-mm" She shook her head refusing, looking away from Damon.

Damon put the phone back to his ear and talked to his brother "yeah, I… I don't think she really wants to talk to you right now."

Cut to Stefan getting angrier by the second

"Damon, I swear to god, if you touch her…" he trailed off.

Cut back to Damon and Elena still on the side of the road

"You have a good day. Mm-hm. Bye, Now." Damon hung up and smiled widely even though Stefan couldn't see him.

Cut to Stefan

Once his brother hung up, Stefan threw his phone whispering "Bastard." He went to his desk and garb Elena necklace, gripping tightly.

Cut to Damon and Elena

Now Damon and Elena stood in front of his car, arguing about going back to Mystic Falls.

"Look, no one knows where I am. Can we please just go back?" Elena begged Damon for what felt like the hundredth time.

"We're almost there." Damon reasoned in a sweet tone.

"Where is there?" Elena asked frustrated with Damon for not telling her anything.

"A little place right outside of Atlanta." Was Damon's vague answer. He stepped closer to her "oh, come on, Elena, you don't wanna go back right now, do you? What's the rush? Timeout." Damon held one had horizontally and held his other hand vertically underneath it creating a T, the well know sign for timeout. "Trust me, your problems are still gonna be there when you get home. Look, step away from your life for five minutes. Five minutes." Damon said in a very convincing voice and when Elena though about it, he did make sense. Her problems would still be there when she got back and she was with a vampire so nothing back was likely to happen to her plus they hadn't driven all this was just to go home now that she was conscious.

Elena groaned turning away from Damon, holding her hands to her mouth in thought. Considering everything Damon had said. She turned back to face him "am I going to be safe with you?"

"Yes." Damon answered immediately.

"Will you promise not to do that mind-control thing with me?"

"Yes." Damon answered just as quickly has he had for her previous question.

"Can I trust you?" Elena asked her final question.

Damon cocked his head to the side "get in the car. Come on" Was all he said as he walked back to the driver's side.


Rock music blared form Damon light blue car as Elena rested her head in the palm of one hand with her elbow resting on the window.

"So where's my car?" Elena asked a question she had been wondering about since she woke up in his car.

"Uh, I pulled it off to the side of the road. I don't think anyone will bother it." Damon assured Elena, watching her.

"What about that man in the road? Was he a…?" Elena trailed off when she asked another question that has been bothering her.

"From what I could tell, yeah." Damon confirmed her suspicions.

"You didn't know him?"

"If I've never meet him, I wouldn't know him. I mean, it's not like we all hang out together at the 'Vamp Bar and Grill." Damon had a reference to the HBO vampire series 'True Blood'. Elena said nothing in return. Damon rounded a corner and pulled his car to a stop across form a bar. 'Bree's Bar' to be specific.

"Where are we? You brought me to a bar?" Both of them got out of the car. "Damon I'm not old enough. They're not gonna let me in." Elena told Damon.

"Sure they will." Damon nods towards the bar and clapped his hands together to make Elena hurry up. She slammed the car door shut and followed the black haired vampire.


Bree, bartender with black curly hair trailing down her back was busy washing the bar countertop when she saw an old flame walking towards her, rubbing his hands together and smirking like Christmas had come early.

"No. No, it can't be. Damon? Aw…" Excited she sat on the bar and swung her legs over jumping down, grinning. She walked to stand in front of him as he eyes her taller body up and down.

"My honey pie" she called him as she grabbed the back of his neck and brought him into a heated kiss.

"Mm" Damon moaned in delight.

"Mm" Bree mimicked the sound Damon made into the kiss. Elena watched with wide eyes not sure why Damon brought her with him just so he could make out with some chick.


Sitting at the bar, Damon and Elena watched as Bree called out to the patrons while holding a bottle of amber liquor in the air.

"Listen up, everybody." Bree addresses to the crowed as she started pouring the liquor in a set of shot glass line up in one row. "Here's to the man that broke my heart, crushed my soul, destroyed my life and ruined any and all chances of happiness." Bree handed the shots out, giving one to Damon and Elena.

"Drink up." She tells them taking a shot for herself. Damon drank he shot while Elena held in between her fingers uneasy about drink. Damon noticed and took her shot and drank it as Elena gave him a grateful smile.

"Whoa." Bree exclaimed after he shot. "So how'd he rope you in?" Bree filled up Elena shot glass just as she held up her hands in a gesture not to.

"I'm not roped in. Actually I'm dating his-"

"Oh, honey, if you're not roped, you're whipped." Bree interrupted Elena with a big smile. "Either way, just enjoy the ride."

"Okay, so how did you two meet?" Bree laughed at Elena's question.

"College." Bree answered as she filled up Damon shot glass.

"You went to college?" Elena asked Damon, while trying to contain the giggle that wanted to escape her at the thought of bad boy Damon Salvatore attending college.

"I've been on a college campus, yes." Damon took his shot after he answered.

Bree continued with the story of how she met Damon. "About 20 years ago, when I was a sweet young freshman I met this beautiful man and I fell in love." She spoke to Elena while watching Damon. "And then he told me about his little secret, made me love him even more coz you see I had a secret of my own that I was dying to share with somebody."

Damon leaned over to Elena in a stage whisper he told her "she's a witch." Elena raised her eyebrows at Damon then looked at Bree in surprised.

"You change my world, you know." Bree addressed to Damon.

"I rocked you world." Damon told her smugly with her ever present smirk.

Bree talked to Elena again, "he's good in the sac isn't he?" Elena look slightly uncomfortable with the question she was just asked but Bree spoke again before she could explain that she was dating his brother or that she had been dating his brother and wasn't sure if she was anymore. "But mostly he's just, uh… a walk away Joe." Bree spoke without her cheeriness that she had before and took a shot. She turned back to the two of them for a minute then faced them again.

"So, what is it that you want?" She questioned Damon.


Damon walked by the pool table after his talk with Bree about opening the tomb when he spotted the girl he was looking for. Elena was standing by his car getting her ringing phone from her pocket.

Cut to Elena outside the bar, by Damon car

Elena took he phone from her pocket and took a deep breath before she answered the call seeing whose name was on the caller id.

Cut Damon still watching Elena from inside the bar

"Elena? is that you?" Damon heard his baby brother's voice from the other end of the phone perfectly.

Cut to Elena on the phone with Stefan

"I'm here." She told him, trying not to put any emotion in her voice.

"Where are you?" Elena took a deep breath trying to control her anger at the younger Salvatore brother.

"You lied." She ignored his question.

Cut to Stefan at the Boarding House

"Not until I explain, please." Stefan begged her to let him explain about the picture of Katherine she had found in his bedroom.

Cut back to Elena outside the bar

"So you didn't lie?" Elena asked daring him to answer when she already knows what he will say.

Cut to Stefan still at the Boarding House

He avoided her question, knowing she was really pissed at him, "just tell me where you are so that I can come get you."

Cut back to Elena who was getting frustrated

"How am I connected to Katherine, Stefan?" Elena demanded, hoping he will at least answer that question honestly.

Cut to Stefan

"I honestly don't know."

Cut to Elena, still by Damon's car

Elena scoffed at Damon's answer, not believing him after he lied to her before. "And I'm supposed to believe that?"

"It's the truth." Came Stefan's reply over the phone.

Cut to the Boarding House

"Listen-"Stefan started to explain to Elena but she wouldn't listen.

Cut to outside Bree's Bar

Elena hung up on Stefan mid-sentence not wanting to hear what he was going to say for himself. She turned to go back inside but came face to face to Damon who had appeared silently behind her.

"You okay." He questioned.

"Don't pretend to care. I know you gloating inside." Elena spoke taking her frustrations about Stefan and his lies on Damon.

Cut to inside the bar

Bree was watching Damon and Elena outside through the window in the bar, thinking this would be her only chance she would get Bree grabbed the phone and turned in the blender so Damon won't eavesdrop.

"Hey, it's Bree. You'll never guess who walked into my bar."


Elena and Damon sat at the bar eating from their own plate each with chips and a burger.

"Let's just say that I'm descended from Katherine. Does that make me part-vampire?" Elena asked, putting another chip in her mouth looking at Damon for his answer.

"Vampires can't procreate. But we love to try." He smirked at her in a suggestive way. Elena didn't look amused so he decided to answer seriously. "NO. If you were related it would mean that Katherine had a child before she was turned." Damon explained to Elena and popped a chip in his mouth.

"Did Stefan think that he could use me to replace her?"

"Kind of creepy if you ask me." Damon looked at Elena. He noticed her abandoned pickles pushed to the side of her plate. "Come on, you don't like pickles? What's wrong with you?" Damon stole her pickles and added them to his burger.

Elena smiled at the vampire who appeared to like pickles. "How can you even eat, if technically you're supposed to be…?" She trailed off not wanted to risk someone over hearing.

Damon looked around amused at her inability to say what she intended to say. "Dead?" he whispered, looking around smirking. "It's not such a bad word. As long as I keep a healthy supply of blood in my system my body functions pretty normally." Damon ate a chip to demonstrated his point about being about to eat human food.

Elena chuckled at him. "This nice guy act, is any of it real?"

Damon grabbed his burger "mm-hm" he hummed softly confirming her question.

"Here you go, honey." Bree handed Damon a new bottle of beer.

"Thank you." He told her using his charming voice.

Elena thought for a moment remember back to what Damon said about taking a break from her life. "I'll have one too." She told Bree.

"Hmmm?" Damon hummed thinking he misheard her.

Elena did the 'timeout' sign with her hands that Damon did early to her. "Timeout, remember? For five minutes. Yeah, well, that five minutes is gonna need a beer." Bree handed Elena a beer with a smile.

'Here you go." Elena grabbed her beer from Bree. Damon held his beer bottle out to her in cheers, Elena clinked her bottle against his, taking a sip.


Sitting on stools at the bar surrounded by people, Bree called out to the people doing shots. "Ready? Go." Everyone drowned their shots quickly but Elena won again. Damon put his shot glass down a second after her. Elena clapped her hands together and jumped on the spot in a little dance of victory.

"That's three." She said proudly. Damon coughed, smirking at Bree who smirked back impressed with Elena's ability to drown shots so quickly.

"You need a bib?" Elena asked Damon with a pout, seeing him with a drip of alcohol off his chin.

"Sorry, I can't unhinge my jaw like a snake to consume alcohol." Damon smiled at her. He enjoyed seeing Elena let lose for once, she wasn't like this in Mystic Falls.

Elena giggled at Damon from his response. "Whatever. All right." She slapped her hands on the bar, "who's next?" Elena addressed the small group of people standing around her and Damon.

"Another round, Bree?" Elena smiled at Bree.

"Honey, you should be on the floor." A clearly drunk blonde told Elena.

"I am not even drunk. My tolerance is, like…" Elena jumped in the air holding her hand up as high as she can to make her point "up here." She finished. She grinned at Damon who smirked back at her.

Bree poured them another round, eyeing a guy who walked behind Damon and Elena to the other end of the bar. "All right, here you go. Bree gave them the shots then walked over to the man who just sat down. She titled her head at Damon. The man looked at Damon and saw him smiling at a brunette with long brown hair who was whipping her mouth with giggling.


Walking outside the bar looking for Elena, Damon saw her phone on the ground. He picked it up and looked from side to side. He headed round the back of the bar still keeping an eye out for her.

"Damon, no." He saw Elena standing on a ladder leading up to a big grey tank full of something. Damon looked confused as to why she was there when suddenly some speed up to his with inhuman speed, clearly a vampire, a wack the knees with a metal pole knocking him to the concrete. Damon yelled out as Elena gasped in fear for Damon.

Damon groaned as the vampire started bashing his legs with the pole. Elena started running to Damon.

"Ow! What the hell?" Damon spoke through the pain in his lower body. The vampire speed away for a second and came back with a can and started pouring gas all over Damon, making him vary flammable with he was to come into contact with fire.

"NO!" Elena yelled seeing what the vampire standing over Damon was doing. He stopped and turned to snarl at her showing her his fang, read eyes with veins underneath. Elena back away scared. The vampire turned back and continued where he left off.

"Who are you?" Damon growled out through gritted teeth.

"That's perfect. You have no idea." The vampire spoke for the first time.

"What are you talking about? What did he do?" Elena spoke loudly to the vampire. Once again he turned to face her.

"He killed my girlfriend." Elena looked confused about who his girlfriend was. Damon tried moving but the vampire turned to pour more gas over him, speaking to him at the same time. "What did she do to you, huh? What did she do to you?"

"Nothing." Was all Damon could manage to say. The vampire threw the now empty gas can to the side.

"I don't understand." Elena spoke again

"My girlfriend went to visit Stefan, and Damon killed her. Got it" He spat at her. Damon tried sitting up but the vampire turned and kicked him hard in the face. Damon fell back with a grunt.

Elena realized who he was talking about. "Lexi? Lexi was you girlfriend? She told me about you. She said you were human." Elena looked confused again as she said the last part.

"I was." Lexi's boyfriend said quietly. He looked at Damon still lying on the ground and got out a matchbox.

Elena took a deep breath. "Lexi turned you?"

"If you wanna be with someone forever, you have to live forever." He said quietly. Elena watched Damon try to breathe through the pain in his legs. The vampire kicked Damon again.

"She loved you. She said that when it's real, you can't walk away." Elena told him.

"Well, that's a choice you're not gonna have to make." The vampire spoke verminously at Elena.

Elena started to beg for Damon's life. "Don't. Don't. Please, don't hurt him." Damon could barely move now from the pain in his legs. The vampire lit a match.

"I'm doing you a favour." He told Elena.

"Lexi loved you and she was good, and that means you're good too. Be better than him. Don't do this. I'm begging you. Please." Elena was close to tears as she continued to pled for Damon's life.

The vampire grabbed Damon by his shirt causing him to groan then he threw him backwards into the side wall of a brick building. Damon hit the wall hard then fell face down grunting in pain. The vampire turned to face Elena.

"Thank you." She said softy.

"It wasn't for you." With his vampire speed he vanished. Elena saw Damon was still lying down, unmoving. She ran to him and knelt beside him.


Driving back from Georgia with rock music once again playing on the radio Elena asked Damon (who had completely healed) a question she had been wondering about. "So you did you bring me with you?"

"Well you're not the worst company in the world, Elena. You should give yourself more credit."

Elena smiled at him, not quite believing that was his only reason for bring her. "Seriously?"

"I don't know, you were there in the road, all damsel-in-distress-like. And I knew it would piss off Stefan. And…" Damon paused for a moment "you're not the worst company in the world Elena." Damon told her sincerely looking at her.

Elena smiled at him. She moved in her seat to get more comfortable. "I used to be more fun." She mused to Damon.

"You did okay." He told her.

"I saved your life." Elena sounded proud at her accomplishment of saving a vampire.

"I know." Damon said looking at her again.

"And don't you forget it." Elena narrowed her eyes at him. Both of them looked away, smiling.
