Damon, standing there motionless; did not know what to say or how to feel. Not right now when all he could think about was how she once said it would always be Stefan. She will always choose Stefan; while the contrary was he will always choose her. This may be the happiest moment of his almost 147 years as a vampire. They both stay silent; him looking at her, as she stares at the ground. He takes a step forward; reaching his hand out to put under her chin-to make her look up and into his eyes. Elena, I don’t think you need me saying this again, but you know that I will always choose you. I’m sorry, if I’m so stupid to not interpret this correctly, but when you say ———
The whole while Damon is talking to her, she feels paralyzed; unable to move or to look away. But now he is going off on a tangent and she has to make a move. His hand still lies underneath her chin, sure – but he is going to ruin this moment if he says another word saying that he doesn’t understand. She holds back a laugh at this idea, as to not ruin it herself. All of these thoughts spinning in her head – it’s like what you see in movies when the one person starts rambling on and on and you ———
But when you say ——— suddenly Damon can no longer speak. Suddenly there is nothing else in the world except him and Elena. She had stopped him from making a fool of himself, thank God he thought. As soon as her lips touched his, he removed his hand from under her chin and placed it on her cheek along with his other hand on her other cheek. She is now running her hands through his hair. Is it possible that this kiss feels more passionate and aggressive than ones with Katherine? He makes a subtle laugh at this thought, not enough to ruin the moment. However, he stops, looking up he realizes it’s still freezing raining. They must have both forgotten, for she also looks up and starts to laugh – then looks back at him. It’s the most heart-warming feeling seeing her look at him in that way, the way that he has been looking at her for almost two years now. Neither one wants to speak first, for they are both at a loss for words to even describe what has just happened.
Damon decides he will do the honours of speaking first – Wow, you have no idea how glad I am that you interrupted me before I made a complete idiot of myself –
She laughs, realizing she has never really seen this side of him before – You are kind of doing it now – she says while still laughing, and reaching out to once again stroke his arm.
He laughs along with her now and getting a warm tingly sensation as she strokes his arm – Well make me stop! – they both laugh.
You know what comes next? Of course she leans in to kiss him again, with the thought of life will never be the same again. And they live happily ever after – or wait, tricked you! This is not the end –
