24. Chapter 24


But every lifestyle has its bad parts. The hunger is what I feared most, as I past every human it took almost all my willpower to not drain their body of blood. I could taste it on my tongue, it was only a matter of time before I mess up. I went back to my work, I needed to give them my notice. Jason greeted me at the door “Nice of you to show up” he said sarcastically. “I’ve been in hospital, this will be my last day” I smiled at him. “Er yeah sure, okay well get to work” easily fooled by my charm. I worked at the till today serving customers. My first customer entered through the double doors, a young girl possibly 14. She smiled sweetly at me as she stood there debating what to get. Only if she knew how much I wanted her. I held my breath as she leant forward eyeing up the cakes. “Are any of these cakes good?” She asked. Her breath meandered through my nostrils, I clenched my fists as she waited for an answer. “Yes, but my favourite is the bl… chocolate” my legs were shaking, the burning only getting hotter. I winced at the pain, as she handed me £2. “I’ll have that then, thanks” she smiled at me. I handed her the cake and backed away leaning against the wall. I can’t do this… “Elena?” Matt looked at me stunned. He ran up and hugged me squeezing the old life out of me. His neck was close to my mouth, my hands clenched his shirt as my face creased up. I looked in the mirror to see my eyes blood shot, I stared shocked as I let go of his t-shirt and hid my face. What is happening to me? I remembered Damon’s face when we had sex for the first time. I closed my eyes steadying my breath. “Elena what’s wrong?” I shook my head “Nothing’s wrong, it’s just you surprised me. Last time you saw me wasn’t exactly a nice conversation” I lied distracting him from my face. I peeped back in the mirror to see it was back to normal phew. “I’m sorry about that I was just angry, I see you made up your mind?” he asked. “What do you mean?” I said confused. “Well you’re back at work, you haven’t gone away?” he tilted his head. “Matt, you have the wrong idea. I was in an accident a couple of days ago and I needed to hand in my notice. I’m still leaving nothing has changed” I said quietly. Anger rose in him as his face turned the shade of red. “Fucking Damon” he threw a bottle of coke at the wall smashing it. He came up to me and shook me “Snap out of this Elena” and suddenly I snapped. I shoved him hard against the wall almost crushing him. Rage filled my body, and desire as I wanted to rip his throat out. “Do not talk about him, don’t even say his name got it?” I said. He didn’t speak, maybe because my hands were around his neck. I let go suddenly “I need to go” I said quickly grabbing my stuff. He took my arm in his hand and pulled me to him. I noticed the drop of blood on his arm. I froze, the burning desire overtaking my body. “Matt, get away from me” I whispered. “Elena? Your eyes are you okay? Elena?” I didn’t hear a word. “Matt run” I tried to shout. He grabbed my other arm steadying me. “Elena let me help you” he shouted, words he shouldn’t have said. “Help me? You’d do anything for me Matt?” I asked tilting my head, my dark side appearing. “Of course you know that” my good side desperately trying to rid the dark side, only to fail miserably. “Stay still, and don’t make a sound” I looked deeply into his eyes. I pushed him against the wall, bringing his arm up to me. “I’m just going to have a small bite, it will only hurt a little I promise” Matt looked at me scared unable to move. I licked the blood off his arm, only making the burning rage hotter. I sunk my teeth into his arm, sucking his blood. The taste was remarkable. “Elena stop you’re hurting me” Faint mutters filled my head, only to be ignored by my hunger. “Elena” Matt shouted. I didn’t listen. Seconds later I felt strong arms around me pulling me back. I tried to fight but they were too strong. “Elena we need to get out of here” Damon pleaded. His voice instantly calmed me, making me realise what I had done. “Oh shit I’m sorry Matt” I looked at him apologetically. He didn’t mutter a word, just remained perfectly still. Damon looked into his eyes “Leave now, remember none of this” and matt was gone. “How did you do that?” I asked Damon confused. “The same way you compelled him to stay” he said with a hint of humour. “I’m sorry” I said closing my eyes. He wrapped his arms around me “You have nothing to be sorry about Elena, we need to go” I nodded. He took my hand and led me out of there. “Damon I’m not strong enough, I can’t do this” tears filling my eyes. I grabbed his hand tightly. “You’re stronger then you realise Elena, I want nothing more than for you to embrace my kind of lifestyle, but you’re not made for it”. “What does that mean?” I asked tilting my head. “I need to teach you how to live my way” I gulped loudly making him laugh. “Come on” he pulled me back to his mansion. “We’re leaving now” he ordered. I grabbed the remains of my stuff and shoved it in a bag. “All set” I smiled at him. His phone rang “Hello?” he asked. I couldn’t be bothered to listen to the conversation, all I got from it is that it was Stefan. “Oh and you think you know her better than me do you?” Damon asked coldly. “Clearly, if you think this is the right lifestyle choice for her” Stefan replied. I grabbed the phone off of Damon. “Stefan hey it’s me, look no more arguing okay? I will live my life how I want to. So stop having a go at Damon, he won’t make me do anything I promise” I demanded. “Elena? Are you okay?” Stefan asked worried. “Yes I’m fine Stefan” Before he could reply I hang up. “So bossy I like it” Damon smiled coming towards me. I put my finger on his lips, and he bit down on it hard. “Not now, we have to leave I can’t stand one more moment in this place” I moaned and he nodded grabbing me, and lunging me over his shoulder. “Let’s go baby” he jumped down the stairs excited, I couldn’t help but laugh. I have never seen this side of Damon before, but I was scared did he think I could kill humans like he did?
