Pairing: Damon x reader
Warnings: Swearing, Smut (sexual content, fingering, sex)
You sigh and roll your eyes at your friend, Elena, as she folds her arms and walks to stand in front of you, giving you a hard stare.
'He's bad news Y/N' she tells you 'stay away from him.'
'I'm trying' you shoot back, knowing she means well but frustrated with her at the same time. You couldn't take another lecture from her just now. Since your run in with Damon earlier, you just needed to see him, and be with him.
'What exactly did he say to you?' she asks, sighing too.
'He...' you begin, feeling a ball of happiness inside of you at the thought 'he told me he wanted to speak to me. He said that I made him better, and he wanted me to be his. He told me he's in love with me!' You can't help but grin as you relay his words. Elena does anything but; her face is set in a straight line. 'I want to be with him Elena. I love him' you tell her.
'I know you do...but Y/N I'm trying to help you. Damon Salvatore is not a good guy. He's selfish and reckless, and he hurts the people he loves. I mean, think about it. He turned Ric's wife. He's killed his way through hundreds of people. He's killed Jeremy! What do you think he'll do to you, if you let him get close to you? You're just a human, you've got no means of protection.'
'He wouldn't do that!' you tell her 'he said I bring out the good in him. He wouldn't hurt me, I know it.'
'You can't be sure of that. No one can ever be sure of the things Damon does, or why he does them. Please, save yourself the pain and the heartache and possible death, and listen to me. Stay away.'
'I need to think' you tell her, as a signal for her to leave. She shakes her head at you 'I hope you chose wisely' she says as she leaves the room. You lay your head in your hands, your mind spinning. You're in love with Damon, but Elena is one of your best friends, and she's dating his brother, Stefan, who knows him better than anybody. You just don't know what to do; whatever you decide, someone's going to get hurt. It's not the first time you've had this conversation with Elena, and so far you've tried your best to keep your distance. But now you've heard him say those words out loud, it's made it so much harder. You want him, and now you know for sure he wants you too.
