Forbidden love

Struggling with her uncaring mother, she turns to Damon, desperate for someone to talk to. Infactuated by the mysteriousness and chaos that surrounds him, they embark on a relationship that neither of them thought was possible.


19. Chapter 19

Damon and I sat together at lunch in the corner avoiding contact with anyone. Stefan entered the canteen joining us in the corner. He gave Damon a look and then Damon nodded. I wonder if they will ever just tell me, or leave me out of it. Tyler came up to the table saving me from the awkwardness “Hey Ty” I smiled. “Can I talk to you for sec?” I nodded thankful. I walked off with Tyler “what’s up?” he frowned. “You know I love you El? But what are you doing?” “What do you mean?” “You know what I mean, with Damon and Stefan. You’ve ditched all of us” he looked down. “Ditched all of you? You all hate me Tyler I love you guys so much but I love Damon and Stefan too”. He shook his head “You barley know them El” “Please Tyler, you have always been on my side don’t turn against me now, please?” he put his hands on my shoulder. “No one’s turning against you, I’m looking out for you that’s all” I shook my head stunned by Tyler’s words, I can’t believe him. “There’s no need” I walked off leaving him standing there. “Elena” he called over to me, I ignored him. I went and sat down next to Damon. “Are you okay?” “I’m fine” I don’t see why I should let them in my head when they won’t let me in theirs. “Elena?” Damon looked at me suspiciously. “I said I’m fine” I snapped. “I need to go somewhere I’ll see you later” I said to both of them and walked off. I went in the toilets and sat there for a while whilst I calmed down.

Someone knocked on my door “Elena” I opened it. “Damon? Why are you in the girl’s bathroom?” “To see you, what’s the matter?” I sighed “Nothing, I’m fine” he shook his head. “Why won’t you tell me?” “Because you and Stefan never allow me to know anything, and to be honest Damon you probably know anyway”. He wrapped his arms around my waist “We’re not keeping anything from you intentionally, we are so used to being the only ones who know about us. So we carry on how we were before” I leant my head on his chest. “What is going on with you two?” he shrugged. “Nothing, just a bit of tension” he still wasn’t telling me the truth. “When you want to tell me the truth, I’m here” he laughed. I kissed him “I’ll see you at the end of school ok?” He nodded kissing me back. I walked out the door, he followed me “Oh and Elena?” I turned to face him. He leant in close and whispered in my ear “Tyler’s a prick” he winked at me and went off. I couldn’t help but laugh, he’s such a dick.

Last lesson was a bore, I barley did any work, too busy focusing on everything else. Tyler wasn’t in lesson, in fact neither was Bonnie, Caroline or Matt. I sighed, remembering how much we used to like this lesson. I feel like I’ve lost everyone, I don’t understand why they’re making me choose. What’s wrong with having both? I haven’t heard from my mother in over a month I’m glad, I don’t want anything to do with her. The bell rang informing the class it was time to get the fuck out of here. I got up from my seat and made my way to the door. “Elena?” Mr Doherty said loudly enough for me to hear. I turned around, giving him my best smile. “Yes?” I answered him. “Can I talk to you for a minute?” I nodded. He waited for everyone to exit before speaking. “What is going on with you at the moment?” I sighed, everyone wanting to know my business. “Nothing sir” he shook his head. “Don’t give me that sir crap Elena, when have you ever called me that?” True. Mr Doherty or should I say Ryan has always been like a dad to me. “Look I’m just tired, I’m sick of everyone wanting something from me. Expecting me to act a certain way, the truth is I want to act how I want. Not play by anyone else’s rules is that so bad?” I moaned. “No it’s not, but I think you need to figure out what you want, because you seem to be so wrapped up in trying not to be what everyone else wants you to be, that you haven’t had a chance to think what you want.” Huh no-one’s ever put it like that to me. “I never thought of it like that” he smiled. “That’s because you’ve never spoke to me about it, you know I’m always here to talk right?” I nodded. “Thanks” I smiled, I wanted to hug him but I think that would be too inappropriate. I said good bye to him and went outside the classroom. Finally I had some time by myself, I feel like I haven’t been alone in months. I walked outside the school and sat on a patch of grass, it was cold outside but I didn’t care. I started to think back to what Mr Doherty said ‘What do you want’ I don’t want my life to be dull and boring, I don’t want to be weak and vulnerable. I want to be with Damon forever. I want to travel the world, see things no human should ever see. I know what I want but would Damon ever allow me to become like him? He might, but would Stefan? Stefan see’s this is a curse he would do anything to be ‘normal’ whatever that means. But Damon isn’t like Stefan he loves being a vampire. But would he want to spend the rest of forever with me…

My thoughts once again interrupted by the sound of a familiar voice. “Can I sit?” Tyler asked. “You can sit wherever you want Tyler” I said coldly, I know I was being harsh but he deserved it. “Look Elena I’m sorry” I shook my head. “I’m tired of apologies Tyler, why can’t people just stop and think. Maybe if you would have thought you wouldn’t be sitting here now apologising”. “Always so difficult Elena, can’t you just accept my apology?” I turned to face him. “Okay and then what, tomorrow you’ll do something and apologise again?” “Elena stop, I get it your annoyed I crossed the line, I was only looking out for someone I care about. I wasn’t being sensitive to your feelings I get that, I just needed you to think about what you’re doing, that was all”. “I’d stop if I was you, I can tell you’re about to say something that will really piss me off”. He sighed “We’re only looking out for you Elena, remember that we’re not the enemy”. “And what they are? Tyler they have done nothing to me. They would never hurt me”. He shook his head “Are you sure about that El?” I remembered the feeling I had when Damon left, I winced at the thought. “That was for reasons Ty, reasons I understand. I may not agree with them but I understand. Maybe you should do the same, you may not agree with me hanging out with them but understand that I want to and it makes me happy”. “But are you happy El?” I nodded “It’s the closest to happy I’ll ever get”. “Do you not hear yourself? You’re telling me you aren’t 100% happy what does that tell you?” Tyler shouted. “You don’t get it Tyler, someone like me isn’t allowed to be happy. I can’t feel the emotions other people feel, when I’m with Damon it’s the most alive I have ever felt. I don’t want anything or anyone to ruin that, and that’s all you lot seem to do, try and ruin it” I half shouted. “No Elena, you need to remember who your friends were for the past 17 years. We’ve been like a family, they come along and suddenly it’s broken and you left”. A tear fell from my eye “No, I never left you pushed me away”. He placed his hands either side of my face pushing his forehead to mine. “Please don’t cry El, I hate it when you cry”. More tears fell from my eyes “Then stop making me cry” he wiped a tear from my cheek. “I never meant to hurt you Elena, I mean it” I nodded. “Elena?” I turned to see Stefan. “Stefan?” I suddenly felt very awkward, he might think something is going on with me and Tyler oh god. “Have you seen Damon?” He asked looking uncomfortable, I shook my head. I hated how things were between me and him. Stefan started to turn away “Wait” I shouted. He stopped “Tyler, I’m going to go, I’ll see you tomorrow ok?” He nodded. I got up wrapping my arm around Stefan’s and pulled him out of Tyler’s sight. “Why are you being off with me?” I asked annoyed. “I’m not” he lied. “Oh for Christ sake Stefan, we were so close now I just feel awkward”. “I’m sorry you feel that way” he said coldly. “Stop acting like a fucking dick” I shouted. “I don’t know what you mean” I shook my head viciously. “You know exactly what I mean, what happened? What because I didn’t feel the same way you are treating me like this?” He smiled “No, I shouldn’t have said nor done anything. I was out of line, I knew you wouldn’t feel the same I was just experiencing false hope”. “Then why are you acting like this?” He sighed “I’m sorry, I’ve been under a lot of stress recently”. “How so?” I asked impatient. “It doesn’t matter” of course it doesn’t not where I’m concerned. “I never had you down as the type to keep things from me and lie, but hey I tend to misjudge people a lot” I said dryly. “It’s for your own good” I laughed. “Whatever Stefan, but you should know I’m getting pretty sick of being lied to” and with that I left him standing there. I walked out of the parking lot “Finally you’re alone” Damon wrapped his arms around me pulling me close. I closed my eyes “How long have you been there for?” “Enough to know, you and Tyler have made up and you and Stefan are not on good terms” he smiled. “Were you spying on me?” “Yes” he laughed. “I just can’t catch a break at the moment, everyone is annoyed at me, I can’t take it” I moaned. He sighed “We should go away for the rest of the week, just us” I looked at him stunned “What about work?” “Always worrying, we will be back by Saturday” “Okay” I smiled. I needed to get away, especially with him. “Let’s go” he said happily. “Don’t you want to say goodbye to anyone?” He shook his head. “Why do you?” oddly enough I don’t, I shook my head. “Then what are we waiting for?” he asked.
