From Shadow Souls. Enjoy.
Like two flames that join and merge into one.
Headstrong, each wanting their own way, passionate, impatient... She and Damon were alike.
To all appearances, he was perfectly in control, icy and precise, distant and disinterested. The truth was that he was going out of his mind. - Damon, thinking about being around Elena
I don't belong anywhere, Damon pointed out, suddenly sounding sad. You know I'll always be with you.
Go to bed. Go to hell. Go anywhere, but stay away from me. - Damon's feelings for Elena are overwhelming
Damon whirled, caught her precisely, held her locked in an unbreakable grip. Then, with a swoop of his head like a falcon on a mouse, he kissed her.
As soon as their minds connected there were something like fireworks. Explosions. Rockets. Stars going nova. - The kiss!
Was that what you've been thinking about while you've been refusing to talk to me? - Elena asking Damon about the kiss
