As she lay with Damon that night, she feels like somethings off. The arms around her feel foreign. She looks over to his sleeping face and finds herself wishing it were someone else’s. She wishes it was his. Stefan’s. It’s not that she doesn’t love Damon, she just didn’t have that overwhelming feeling of happiness and love that she had with Stefan. She untangles herself from his arms and gets out of bed, only a sheer white night gown on.

She walks down the hall to a familiar room and brings her hand up to knock, but she can’t bring herself to do it. She lays her slim hand against the doorframe and slowly whispers his name. She doesn’t expect him to answer. Doesn’t expect anything, really. She starts to turn away, her night gown starting to fall off her shoulder, when she hears her name softly coming from the other side of the door. The door slowly opens and she sees him, hair unruly, his green eyes looking sad. She wants so badly for him to pull her closer, just to have his skin touch hers. But they just take in the sight of each other. He says her name again and this time takes a step forward and presses his lips on her forehead. A tear rolls down her cheek because she knows. She hears the unspoken “I love you.” She looks back up to him wanting to say something, anything. But he reaches out to touch her cheek and tells her goodnight. He retreats back behind the door and she silently whispers “I love you too” as the door shuts hoping he heard her.

As she walks away and back to the man she shares a bed with, she doesn’t see the tear stream down his face accompanied by a smile he hadn’t been able to produce in months.
