The beginning of us

" I don't quite know how to say how I feel. Those three words are said too much their not enough. "

" Do you know where your heart is do you know how to find it did you trade it for something somewhere better just to have it. Do you know where your love is do you think that you have lost it you felt it so strong but nothing's turned out how you wanted it. "

" I could never pretend that I don't love you. "


Ariana Gilbert is Elena's twin sister, but she is anything but like her twin. Ariana is the party girl, the most popular girl at the whole school, and even though it looks like she has everything that anyone could ever have she feels that she has absolutely nothing. Nothing at all, and when her parents die it only gets worse. Ariana just acts like she is fine and she is unaffected by her parents death, and everyone believes her.

Then Junior year starts up, the thing that Ariana has been dreading ever since school was let out last year. Ariana is convinced that her Junior year is going to be horrible, and that it is going to be the worst thing that she will ever experience. But, Ariana soon finds out that she couldn't be more wrong, because when she meets Damon Salvatore her sisters boyfriends older brother, she and Damon become fast friends. But, soon Ariana realizes that her feelings for Damon were much more than " Just friends "


I felt his hands around my waist as he pulled me into his arms, his safe arms that I love, and when I looked into is beautiful blue eyes I close mine, and just savor this moment. I felt his soft lips brush against my ear softly as he whispers three words " I love you " I open my eyes slowly and look at him shocked. I couldn't believe that he loved me of all people. No one ever loved me. "You do? " I ask in a small whisper my lips brushing against his neck. "Yes. I have loved you from the moment that I saw you. " Damon whispers and that's when I whisper " I love you too " and he pulls me into the most magical kiss ever.


4. Chapter Two


" The battle of willow creek. Any thoughts? " Mr. Tanner asks, and I raise my hand, and I was also the only one as usual who raised my hand.

" Anyone besides Ms. Gilbert? " Mr. Tanner asks. There is no answer so Mr. Tanner nods in my direction.

" The defense of the town was left to a small army of less than 3,000 against the enemy of never less than 12,000 and sometimes as many as 25,000 and always within a days march. The regiment engaged the enemy at willow creek near mystic falls virgina. They were driven back across the river until nightfall, when fighting subsisted and they made camp on the 7th of April in the hear of 1865. The remaining troops left camp and moved three miles along the rivers south bank. They were determined to make a stand near the Braunwrath Mill, a little below the falls where willow creek meets the river proper because it's right flank could be protected by the high bluffs. The battle lasted until the night and in the morning troops retreated into the fortification at Mystic Falls. There were a total of 346 casualties and 27 civilian casualties. " I say with a smirk leaning back into my chair.

I heard several mumbles of " Smart ass " and "History Geek " and " Nerd " but after Mona glared at all of them being the protective friend that she is they all shut up.

" Thank you for paying attention Ms. Gilbert, but there was of course no civilian casualties in this battle. " Mr. Tanner says, and I look at him like he was dumber than his students. Their were 27 civilian casualties!

" No their were 27! " I exclaim angrily. Before tanner can even respond Stefan speaks up.

" Auctally Sir there were 27 civilian casualties. Because you see--, " Stefan tries to explain, but I cut him off.

" Mr. Tanner soldiers fired at fells church killing 27 people in the process. It was a night of great loss, and one to be remembered. " I said with a smirk.

" And the founders archives are in city hall if you want to brush up on your facts. " Stefan says, and I smirk high fiving him. As soon as we high five the bell rings and we both get up.

" Dude you were awesome! I thought I was going to be the only history geek to roam these halls! " I tell Stefan as the two of us walk to lunch.

Stefan chuckled, " So you like history, huh? "

" Yes! It's my favorite subject! That's why I want to go to Italy again! The architecture there is amazing! " I tell Stefan with a wide smile, and we stop walking to go to our lockers.

" You've been before? " Stefan asks as we both do the combination to our lockers. I opened mine and put all my stuff in there before I answer Stefan.

" Yeah, my dad took me when I was 15. It's why I know Italian, I wanted to learn it so I could speak it when we went. " I told Stefan.

" Wow. You really are amazing Ari. " Stefan tells me with a faint smile. I laughed at him  and am about to respond when Mona comes over to me freaking out.

"Ari! Ari! Ari! " Mona yells. I chuckle, and close my locker and walk alongside Mona and Stefan follows us.

" Okay why are you freaking out? " I asked Mona laughing.

" Dude, my sister is...pregnant! " Mona says. I look at her strangely and say, " What? Caroline is pregnant?! "

" Kidding! I'm just fucking with you! " Mona says and I roll my eyes at her.

" Stefan see what I have to deal with every single day? " I ask Stefan with a teasing smile.

" Oh the horror! " Stefan says sarcastically and I smirk in approval.

" You are my new best friend Stef! " I exclaim as I loop my arm through his.

" I'm offended! But I have to go, meeting with my sister. Bye bitch! " Mona says to me and I roll my eyes.

" Bye hoe! " I yell at her as she runs away.

" Nice friendships. " Stefan said with a teasing smile making me laugh.

" Yeah, your defiantly my new BFF! " I exclaim as we head to the cafeteria.

" Be warned Stef people will be staring at us right now. " I whisper to Stefan and he looks at me confused, but then he sees what I mean. Once we enter everyone stops what their doing and I walk alongside Stefan to my usual table. The popular kids table.

" Hey bitches and hoes! This is my new BFF Stefan, also known as my sisters future hubby. " I tell everyone with a smirk causing both Stefan and Elena to blush as they look at each other as they exchanged looks.

" So Stefan let me introduce you to everyone. This is Caroline and Elena. They don't always sit with us. Weirdos. Then this is Bonnie and Mona who always sit here, then the douche of the group is Tyler, and lastly we have matty blue eyes. Nicknames for them are Lena, Care, Bon, M, Ty, Matty, and for me the best of us Ari. " I tell Stefan.

" Ari why are you such a cocky bitch? " Tyler asks me as he eats a fry. I smirk and steel one of his fries, and slowly eat it teasing him.

" Mona I thought you and care bear were sitting by yourselfs. " I asked my friend from across the table.

" She insisted that we sit with you guys. " Mona tells me and when Caroline isn't looking she whispers, "She found out that Stefan was sitting with us. "

Caroline looked at her twin and glared playfully and I said, " Sorry carebear but I ship Stelena not Steroline. "

Stefan looked at me and whispered, " Stelena? "

" It's a ship name. " I whispered back.

" What's our ship name? " Stefan whispers back at me.

" Stefriana. " I whisper back.

" What are you guys whispering about? " Bonnie asks us amused.

" We are talking about...Italian! You know cause Stefan needs help with his Italian homework so we gotta go! " I said lying and dragged Stefan away from the group, wit me giggling.

" Where are we going Ari? " Stefan asks me.

" Everywhere! " I giggle as I pull him to the outside field of our school.

" You're so adorable. " Stefan says and I giggle at him, but then from a distance I see Elena watching us. I mouth ' Elena ' and say to him, " Stefan! I don't like you like that. " ' go with it ' I mouth to him.

" I don't understand. " Stefan says.

" You're practically dating my sister! You can't like me in that way! " I yell, and then run away, but the problem was, I really did like Stefan Salvatore, even though I just met him.

Later that night

I wondered the woods with tears in my eyes, and just tried my hardest to not scream. Everything seemed to suck, every single thing. Stefan and my sister were clearly getting very close, and for some reason that hurt my heart.

" Who are you? " A man asks me from a feet away from me. I mentally slapped myself, he was a really hot guy, who was seeing me about to break down. This was the most embarrassing moment of my life by far.

" I would tell you, but my father would be pretty upset if I did. He always scolded me for speaking to strangers. " I told the man with a smirk.

" Well, I'm Damon. And you know now that I have told you my name, we aren't strangers now are we? " The man--Damon apparently--says.

" Mhm hmm, but have you really earned my name? I mean it's a pretty personal thing. " I say with a teasing smile.

" Awh come on. Just tell me. " Damon says almost pleading making me slightly giggle.

" My name is Ariana. Ariana Ann Gilbert. " I told Damon smiling.

" Hm, so what did I do to earn your name Ariana Ann Gilbert? " Damon asks with a teasing smirk.

" Well, you made me giggle. That's a very hard task. " I say with a smile.

" So your not happy then? " Damon inquires curiosity.

" What makes you think that? " I asked. No one had ever figured that I was anything but happy or fine, so how had Damon?

" Well, it did look like you were going to burst into tears before I said anything to you. " Damon points out.

I groaned, " You saw that? "

" Mhm hmm. " He hums. " Why are you so sad Ariana? " Damon asks me.

" I'm not sad! " I yell exasperated.

" Then why do you look like you are about to break?" Damon asks.

" You--you don't even know me okay! I'm not sad! I'm just fine! " I yelled.

" It helps to talk. " Damon whispers.

" My parents died. " I whispered. I looked at the ground, and took a deep breath, just saying the words out loud seemed to hurt me even more.

" I'm sorry. " Damon says sadly.

" You know your the first person to even think about saying that to me. " I say in a sad whisper.

" I'm really sorry Ariana, no one should have to deal with that. " Damon says, and then I sigh realizing how dumb this is.

" And now I am pouring my heart out to a stranger! " I exclaim and start to walk away, and before I start to break out into a run I can her another faint whisper, " Your not a stranger to me. " What was that even supposed to mean?


Once I get home I immediately run upstairs to my room ignoring Elena yelling my name telling me that I didn't give her a ride after school like I was supposed to.

I sighed as I slid my door to my closet, opened my safe, and pulled out my diary. Privacy is important okay!

Dear Diary,

Today is still September 10th, but it's just 10 at night, and trust me I had quite the day. I met this boy named Stefan, and we immediately hit it off! We even had a ship name! Stefriana! It's soooooo cute!!!! But then I find out that Elena likes him! 😐😐😐 I just don't get it! Why does my sister always get the guy?!

But, there was this guy that I meet in the woods since I always went there to get all of my emotions out, for some reason it always seemed so calming to me. But, that was so not the point, the point is Damon, there was just something about him. He just...he seemed to understand me so well...what am I saying?! I just met the guy and he's like 20, and I'm only 17! It's against the law!

Oh my god Ari get your thoughts under control...

And that was when Elena walks into the room fuming, practically steam blowing out of her ears, and her skin turning red like a cartoon character.

She looked scary.

" Ariana Ann Gilbert how dare you leave me all by myself! I had to wait like--" Elena says and continues to rant to me about how long she had to wait, how I should've called, how she had to bug Jenna for a ride, and blah blah blah, and by then I was done.

" Elena fucking Gilbert get the hell out of my room! Your the most selfish bitch that I have ever meet and I hate you! " I yelled at my sister as I pushed her out of my room, and closed the door, and as I locked it and slid down to the floor crying, the imagine of Elena's hurt face clouded my mind.
