Love Story – Chapter 1

Chapter 1 - Meeting Damon Salvatore

(Lily's pov)

I was running. It's dark and I can't see. Something is chasing me and I'm not going to let it get me that easily. Not if I had any change to escape. I suddenly fell down. Then I hear voice say into my ear: "Found you." And I scream.

I sit up and hit my head. A dream. It was just a dream. A dream I've seen two weeks now every night. I haven't seen nightmares since I was nine, why now? I'm pretty weird. I'm not scared of many things. I'm not scared of spiders, heights or dark. I'm not even scared of death. That grosses some people out. I don't have friends but I don't mind, I'm not really very outstanding and social. And I'm short. Even my little sister is longer than me.

I stand up and take support from the wall when I feel dizzy. I really should go to the nurse after school. Or I just skip it like every other day. I went to shower and get dressed. White and beige it's today. My blond polka hair bounced on my every step as I went down the stairs. My older brother Hector and my younger sister Camille were already on the kitchen chatting with our parents. I took bread from the disk and went to fridge already eating my bread. I took milk from the fridge and drink some. Nice and cold. I took my school bag and went outside jacket on my shoulder. I took a final look at my family. Nobody notice as I leave.

Final day of school before summer vacation. Boring and dull. I went with the blow. Nothing special. Nobody to talk to, so I watch as the popular kids talk and laugh. I hear some of the conversation and decide it's not worth it. They're just talking about boys and clothes. The girl Elena is her little crews boss, apparently. She seems nice but self-centered. They talk about some party where 'they all have to go'. I'm not interested of parties so I change my attention to other people. Some picks my interest but not for long. Then I see it. On the gate a few meters away there's a huge crow. One word rings in my head. Beautiful. It watch the same group I was looking a minute ago. Then it sets his eyes on me — it must be male with that grand appearance. Hypnotized I walk slowly to it side. I reach out my hand to it and as it doesn't flew away from me I touch his velvet feathers. As somebody screams the crow flew away. I look at the group of people who are watching me. Scared of me. Well this is great.

I walk past the cemetery as I'm walking home. It's peaceful as dead people can't be very noisy. I look at the last test I got. An A. But nobody will notice like usual. My thoughts have a stop as I hear noise from the bush. What the..? There stood a man in front of me his back facing me. I decide just go past him not looking at him. I was just about to pass him when he suddenly grabbed my hand.

"Hello Lily."

"Wha-?" I turn to face him and see ice blue eyes looking at my grey ones. I blush as no one has ever really looked at me and definitely not like how he's looking at me, interested. Besides he's gorgeous.

"How do you know my name?!" I shout still embarrassed.

"If I told it wouldn't be fun wouldn't it? So you going home?" He's creeping me out!

"Um... Yeah..."

"Perfect! Let me accompany you to your house."

"What do you want from me?" I look at him frowning.

"Nothing much really. Just talk to you."


"Feisty aren't ya? I like that."

"Excuse me?!"


"You're crazy!"

"Maybe but you don't have to think about that."

"You going to kill me or something?"

"Who knows?"

"Just great..."

"Do you have friends?"

"No. Why you asking?"

"Just thinking. Aren't you lonely?"

"No, can you now go away?"

"No. I can be your friend if you want to." he smiles.

"No thank you."

"What? You don't want to be my friend?"

"No and I don't even know your name."

"I didn't told you? If that's what bothering you my name is Damon Salvatore."

"I didn't mean that. Can you just go away? Take a hint?"

"Ouch. That hurt my feelings you know." he says dramatically and puts his hand to his heart.

"Like I care."

"You don't like my compliments, me trying to be polite or even my looks?"

"I chose not to care. You are stalking me obviously."

"Me? Stalking? How's that possible?"

"You knew my name and I didn't told it to you."

"Well you have a point. Maybe I'm stalking you little?"

"I don't even want to know..."

"Well, maybe that's for best." That make me want to get home really quickly.


"Come on. I wanna make you smile. Life a little."

"No thank you, stalker."

"I can't be that bad."

"Believe me, you are."

"Still feisty." Damon chuckled.

"You know, I'm going to go now so leave me alone. I mean it."

"But I haven't yet escort you to your home."

"I can handle that myself."

"You don't know what things there are haunting you in the dark..." he says softly and leaves. Finally. Thought I'm already on my front door. He lied to me! I open the door and face darkness. Why nobody aren't home? I try to find someone with no luck. They just leave me here! All alone! This is it. I don't care anymore. My only contact with someone was with that creep. I don't like this. Why would they leave me and with out any warning. There's nothing here. No letter. No nothing. I open the fridge and try to find something to eat and face empty shelves. Are you kidding me?! I close the fridge and make my way to the second floor and to my room. There's huge crow at my window. I walk to it and open the window.

"Hello, bird. Are you the same one I saw at the school?" The bird croaked. I smile and slowly touch its feathers.

"Are you a pet crow? You are used to humans." The crow watches me with its black eyes.

"I hope you would talk so I wouldn't be alone..." I say sighing.

"Missed me already?" I almost fell down from my window as I hear the voice.

"What are you doing here? In the tree?!"

"Well I kind of wanted to talk more."

"You mean stalk."

"Talking, stalking... What's the difference?"

"There's a huge difference!"

"Still, now I'm here as you command, princess." he says spreading his arms to me and smiling a bit silly.

"You are going to fall." I say smirking at him. And true, he allmost fells from the tree. I snigger as he tries to keep his balance.

"Well, I finally got a smile from you." Damon says smirking self-consciously. I snort to his attitude and cross my arms.

"And you would like that so much? I know there's a trick behind."

"You got me. I really do want something from you."

"And what might that be?"

"A kiss." I blush tomato red to his sentence.


"Well... you know, when two lips pucker and they go *kissing noises*"

"Damon I know what a kiss means!"

"Great! Let's do it!"

"No! I'm not kissing you!"

"Why? That would be fun."

"For you."

"And you too."


"Oh, you are stubborn. But that doesn't bother me. I'm going to catch your lips some day!"

"That day you have to wait a long long time."

"Well, I've got forever to wait."


"I've got to go now but I'll see you around miss Fray." Damon makes a little bow and leaves. The final thought before my parents car drive to the yard was: Damon Salvatore is a strange person.
