Elena gripped the railing of the staircase as she rushed down. She only had about ten minutes before he’d realize she had left. Taking the last step she rushed over the couch and grabbed her bag and the keys. Walking towards the door she looked around the boarding house, everything was still and quite. She smiled to herself sadly before opening the door and looking around one last time. Making sure she had her phone she run to the car before throwing the door open and turning it on. Biting her lip she realized Damon would be home in about five minutes, giving her that long to get as far away as possible. Pulling out of the driveway speeding off she knew he’d come to find a note left on his pillow that read.
Before you freak out know that noone took me, I left on my own. And before you just jump to ideas, no I didn’t run off with Stefan or anyone else for that matter, I’m alone.
Your probably wondering why I left, and well it’s because you desereve better. You deserve the love of someone amazing, and I’m not that person. These past few weeks you’ve spent all your time on me, teaching me, keeping me safe, and just being there for me. The only way I could think of returning the favor is if I left.
I know your mad at me by now, but all I do is cause hurt and surrfuring and I no longer want to bring that upon any of you. So I’m leaving and not telling anyone where I’ll be going, heck I’m not even sure myself.
But before this letter ends I have one last thing to add, I love you Damon Salvatore. And I never got the chance to tell you, and now I never will. It will always be you, I was wrong when I said it’d be Stefan, so competely and utterly wrong. It’s you.
But you desereve someone who won’t run away and who’d say that to your face. Someone who doesn’t hurt anyone or doesn’t have the bad luck of everyone they love dieing or getting hurt.
I can’t risk your life anymore Damon, I won’t. You’ve already done to much for me, and I can’t even give you a real goodbye.
Just one last thing please don’t come looking for me, or at least since I know you don’t waste an entire life time looking. I’m not worth it.
