Chapter One

Elena stepped into the clearing.

Beneath her feet tatters of autumn leaves were freezing into the slush. Dusk had fallen, and altbough the storm was dying away the Woods were getting colder. Elena didn't feel the cold.

Neither did she mind the dark. Her pupils opened wide, gathering up tiny particles of light that would havebeen invisible to a humnan. She could see the two figures struggling th the great oak tree quite clearly.

One had thick dark hair, which the wind churned into a tumbled sea of waves. He was slightly taller than the other, and although Elena couldn't see his face she somehow knew his eyes were green.

The other had a shock of dark hair as well, but his was fine and straight, almost like the pelt of an animal. His lips were drawn back from his teeth in fury, and the lounging grace of his body was gathered into a predator's crouch. His eyes were black.

Elena watched them for several minutes, without moving. She'd forgotten why she had come here, why she'd been pulled here by the echoes of their battle in her mind. This closethe clamor of their anger and hatred and pain was almost deafening, like silent shouts coming from the fighters. They were locked in a death match.

I wonder which of them will win, she thought. They were both, wounded and bleeding, and the taller one's left arm hung at a unnatural angle. Still, he had just slam the other against the gnarled trunk of an oak tree. His fury was so strong that Elena could feel and taste it as well as hear it, and knew it was giving him impossible strength.

And, then Elena -remembered why she had come. How could she haveforgotten? He was hurt. His mind had summoned her here, battering herwith shock waves of rage and pain. She had come to help him because she belonged to, him.

Two figures were down on the icy groundnow, fighting like wolves, snarling.Swiftly and silently Elena went to them. The one with the wavy hair and green eyes — Stefan, a voice in her mind whispered — was on top, fingers scrabbling at the other's throat.Anger washed through Elena, anger and protectiveness. She reached between the two of them to grab that choking hand, to pry the fingers up.

It didn't occur to her that she shouldn't be strong enough to do this. She was strong was all. She threw her weight to the side, wrenching, her captive away from his opponent. For good measure, she bore down on his wounded arm, knocking him flat on his face in the leaf-strewn slush.Then shebegan to choke him from behind.

Her attack had taken him by surprise, but he was farfrom beaten. He struck back at her, His good hand fumbling for her throat.His thumb dug into her windpipe.

Elena found herself lunging at the hand, going for it with her teeth. Her mind could not understand it, but her body knew what to do. Her teeth, were a weapon, and they slashed into flesh,drawing blood.

But hewas stronger than she was. With a jerk of his shoulders, he broke her hold on him and twisted in her grasp, flinging her down. And then he was, above her, his face contorted with animal fury. She hissed at him and went for his eyes with her nails, but he knocked her hand away.

He was going to kill her. Even wounded, he was by far the stronger. His lips had drawn back to show teeth already stained with scarlet. Like a cobra, he was ready to strike.

Then he stopped, hovering over her, his face changing.

Elena saw the green eyes, widen. The pupils which had been contracted to vicious dots, sprang open. He was staring down at, her as if truly seeing her for the first time.

Why was he looking at her that way? Why didn't he just get it over with? But now the iron hand on her, shoulder was releasing her., The animal snarl had disappeared, replaced by a look of bewilderment and wonder. He sat back, helping her to sit up, all the while gazing into her face.

"Elena"hewhispered. His voice, was cracked. "Elena, it's. you."

Is that who I am? she thought. Elena?

It didn't really matter. She cast a, glance toward the old oak tree. He was still there,standing between the upthrust roots, panting, supporting himself against it with one hand. He was looking at her with his endlessly black eyes, his brows drawn together in a frown.

Don't worry, she thought. I can take care of this one. He's stupid. Then she flung herself on the green-eyed one again.

"Elena!" he cried as she knocked him backward. His good hand pushed at, her shoulder,holding her up. "Elena, it's me, Stefan! Elena,look at me!"

She was looking. All she could see was the exposed patch of skin at his neck. She hissed again, upper lip drawing, back, showing him her teeth.

He froze.

She felt the, shock reverberate through his body, saw his gaze, shatter. His face went as white as if someone had struck him a blow in the stomach. He shook his head slightly on the muddy ground.

"No," he whispered. "Oh, no

He -seemed to be saying it to himself, as if he didn't expect her to hear him. He reached a hand toward her cheek, and she snapped at it.

"Oh, Elena..." he whispered.

The last traces of fury, of animal bloodlust, had disappeared from his face. His eyes were stricken and greiving.

Elena should be stephens after everything they go through she hoes to damon?! She helped stephen get through everything. And then brakes his heart. In the tv show she said i <3 stephen it will always be stephen not u damon!!!!! Thats a lie. Stephen is better than damon. He loves her so much.
