For over a century I have lived in secret; hiding in the shadows, alone in the world. Until now. I am a vampire. This is my story... I shouldn't have come home. I know the risk. But I had no choice. I have to know her.
I lost control today. Everything I've kept buried inside came rushing to the surface. I'm simply not able to resist her.
I had a plan. I wanted to change who I was, create a life as someone new, someone without the past. Someone alive............
They follow you. You can't escape them - as much as you want to.
I am awake. For the first time in a long time, I feel completely and undeniably wide awake. I welcome the day. Because I know I will see her again.
There must be a shred of humanity left inside my brother. Somewhere. I keep hoping but how do I make him see it? How do I protect her?
I thought there was hope. That somewhere deep inside something in Damon was still human. Love. But I was wrong. There is nothing human left in Damon. No good. No kindness. No Love. Only a monster that must be stopped.
The real animal is still out there waiting for me challenging me to fight back to stop him. But how do I fight the monster without becoming one myself?
I did what I had to do to protect Elena. To protect everyone. Yes Damon the headline reads deadly beast captured. All is well in Mystic Falls.
Wallow is self loathing. Better to shut it off. Bury it.
She’s (Elena) been spiraling since her transition and at times I barely recognize her. But now, for the first time in a while, there’s hope. Somewhere in the world, there’s a cure for vampires. If I can get it, Elena can be human again. I can give her back her life. So, that’s what I need to do. No matter what Klaus asks, no matter what lies I have to tell or secrets I have to keep, I’ll do it. No matter what it takes.
