Damon lay on his bed, his eyes closed. He hadn’t woken up since Bonnies attack. Elena sat on the bed, tears rolling over her face. She didn’t understand any of this. Why was Stefan so mean to her? Why did someone do this to Damon? And why did she have all these different emotions? She knew she was seventeen, but she didn’t feel like that. She felt like a little kid. She wanted to be cuddled and cherished. She lay down and snuggled against Damon’s cold body. She weaved her fingers in his and lay her head on his chest. She felt him moving and looked up. He was awake.
“No, toi need to lay down” Elena said, when Damon wanted to sit up. She pushed him back on the bed. “Oww!” Damon exclaimed. Elena gasped. “Oh, God, I’m so sorry. Did I hurt you?” she asked concerned. “A little” Damon admitted. “But I’ll be fine” “No, toi won’t” Elena a dit upset. “When will toi stop lying? Stop trying to be strong. You’re not fine”
Damon sat up and shook the pillow, plus to have something to do than something else. Elena went sitting behind him and lay her hands on his shoulders. “I couldn’t exactly see what is on there, but I know it’s bad. toi should let someone take care of it” she a dit soft. “Let me take care of it”
“Elena, I’m fine” Damon protested, but she already jumped off the lit and left the room. Ten minutes later she came back with a bowl of hot water, some towels and ointment. “I don’t think it’s going to help, but I appreciate it” Damon said.
Elena crawled back on the lit behind Damon. She took the bottom of his T-shirt and carefully pulled it off, while Damon tried to stop her. “Damon, if toi keep boycotting me I will call Katherine to hold your arms. Do toi want that?” And so Damon let Elena take of his upper clothes. He heard how Elena took a deep breath. “She wrote something. She in scripted a message on your back. ou actually burned it. But I have no idea what it says. It’s a language I don’t know” She carefully glided with her fingers over the first letter, accidentally causing it to bleed. She gasped and took the towel she had dabbed into the hot water. “I’m so sorry” she a dit scared and she dabbed the wet towel against Damon’s back. He groaned, but Elena wasn’t sure if that was of pain ou of delight. “Is it better now?” she asked slowly, looking at Damon. “Much” he reassured her. Elena continued the nursing when she thought of something. “Hey, toi a dit this happened because toi showed what’s on your back. But I’m looking and even touching your back right now and nothing happens. How do toi explain that?”
Damon thought of an explanation and said: “Well, something did happen. My wounds started bleeding againg… I think she knows what we’re doing right now. But she also knows she has to be careful. I think from now on she won’t do anything unless I’m alone”
“Well, in that case it’s really simple” Elena a dit dabbing the towel against Damon’s back again. “You shouldn’t be alone anymore… ” She softly blew on his wounds and kissed his back. Damon enclosed the sheets as Elena moved her lips upwards to his neck. She opened her mouth and softly bit the flesh. She moved her arms around his body, laying her hands on his thorax and tightening her grip. Damon felt her breasts against his back and closed his eyes. He tried to get away, but Elena’s grip was too tight. How could she be stronger than him? He didn’t have much time to think about that, because Elena crawled up front and kissed him passionately. “Elena, stop, toi don’t want to do this” Damon a dit breathing fast. But Elena pushed him down and massaged his chest. She bowed her head. “You’re right, I really don’t want to do this” she kissed his thorax. “Or this” she kissed his tummy. “Or this” as she went lower…and lower…and…
Damon shook his head and came back to reality.
“Wow, toi were far gone” Elena laughed. Damon turned around. What he just saw ou imagined, alarmed him. He took Elena’s hands and looked her in the eyes. “Elena, toi have to promise me something. Don’t ever go somewhere after dark and make sure there’s always someone with you… You’re beautiful and vulnerable and a lot of guys try to take advantage of that. So if anyone tries to hurt you, toi have to hurt them first. Even if it’s me. If I ever do something inappropriate toi have to stop me. Do toi promise?”
Elena nodded heavily. “Yeah, off course” a little confused.
