Love is about the journey, not the destination. This journey, however, puts Damon and Elena's love to the test. Is it real or is it the sire bond? And how will Elena react when she loses the one she believes she loves the most? Can she survive without him, or is there another option?
This takes place after episode 4x09. If you haven't watched the show, you'll probably be confused but if you still want to read it, commetn and I'll add a plot chapter that explains some of the confusing spots.
