His Girl

4 years after Damon Salvatore had passed away, Elena Gilbert stopped looking for solutions to bring him back. She stopped believing that there was hope she'd see him again. The first year was hard, but it became easier. After four years, she finally moved on until the feeling of deja vu washes over her.


15. Fourteen. Damon's POV

Seven Years Ago

I found myself wide awake with a blurred vision. “Come on Damon, drink up.” I heard the familiarity in the sound of the girl’s voice. A blood back was put at my mouth. Almost at an instant, it was gone. I have been dead for three years. I have been asleep for three years.

I only had one image in my mind—Elena’s. I tossed the empty bag to the ground and another was handed towards me. It wasn’t enough, but it’ll do for now. My coffin was open. I glanced around at my surroundings when I sat up. I was in the Salvatore crypt.

“Bonnie Bennett?” I turned to face her. She stood before the coffin with her arms crossed over her chest. She had on this painted smirk, which I assumed that she had perfected. Although Elena wasn’t around, Bonnie was one of the few people I was actually glad to see.

There was something about her that changed. I wonder what she has been going through lately these three years. “One and only. Elena will be here soon. You have to leave before she finds out.” said she. Right, I couldn’t let my girlfriend find out that her best friend brought me back from the dead. How will she handle it?

How did Bon-Bon find a way? There were many questions I wanted to ask her, but I had no time to stay. “Thank you Bonnie.” I gave her a hug before exiting the crypt. Where would I go? There is always home. Would Stefan be there waiting? I doubt it. He wouldn’t care whether I was dead or alive.

Maybe for a short time, but never for three years. I’m sure he found himself a girl and moved on from me. I decided to go to the boarding house anyway. It was too much of a risk to go public. What if I ran into Alaric or Elena? Sometimes I wondered if they would be surprised to see me.

When I arrived home, it was empty for the time being. My car was gone. Whoever took it is going to pay. I headed upstairs to my bedroom. The door was closed. Guess everyone deemed it rude to enter a dead… dead man’s room. I took my shower and just as I finished, I heard the front door close downstairs.

Quickly, I got dressed and went to see who arrived. Stefan set his bag down and stopped in his tracks. “Hello brother.” I gave him a smirk. I don’t know which one of us was more surprised—him or I. I was surprised at the fact that he was still here in Mystic Falls, unless he left after my death. “You’re a ghost.” said Stefan.

“It’s really me Stefan. Bon-Bon brought me back.” I told him. Still, the expression he had when he first saw me did not leave his face. There was a short pass before he reached out and gave me a hug. I explained to him everything about what had happened to me.

“You have to compel Elena for me.” Stefan didn’t like the idea, but he figured that it would best for her. If I could only see her once, I’d be content. We were in the main room. I took a drink when Stefan asked how long I would be staying. I told him for only a few days.

Though, my stay took longer than just a few days. I had to see Elena, but she would recognize me almost immediately. Stefan told me about the high school reunion Caroline was throwing. Even though I didn’t attend Mystic Falls High, I decided to go anyway.

I had to see Elena one last time before Stefan compelled her to forget who I was. It wouldn’t have made a difference anyway. I got dressed for the masquerade party and arrived at the Lockwood Mansion. How it’s still standing without Tyler’s parents? I didn’t know.

I entered the party going unnoticed and walked into the main area. There she was standing near the mini bar, looking beautiful as ever in her gorgeous gown. I picked a small rose before approaching her. With a small compliment I had given her, she smiled.

I could see it in her eyes that she has seen me somewhere before, but she couldn’t exactly recognize me. Most of my face was covered by the mask I wore. After our brief encounter, I went to find my brother and tell him to compel her tonight. “You’re sure?”

I nodded, “When I decide to let her remember everything, I’ll let you know.” With that being said, I left. Mystic Falls has surely changed. There were less animal attacks. The town was much more quiet. It almost reminded me of a time before I knew that vampires even existed.

Even when I have grown and encountered one myself, I didn’t think at the time I would be one. Since I am over a century old, guess I’m glad to be alive. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t have met Elena. I wouldn’t have gotten to know the kind person that she is.

We bring out the best in each other. When I’m with her, I feel like a much different person. I have fallen for a girl that has now become a strong woman. I wish I didn’t have to leave Mystic Falls. I wish I didn’t have to say goodbye, but it was for the best.
