Chapter 3 - Damon&Riddhima ; Love Conquers All <3
I am so going to kill Elena and Stefan for dragging me into this STUPID party, of their lovey-dovey anniversary 'celebrating 1 year'! Urgh, do they really think Klaus's brother Elijah, will turn up?! And this tux, is so killing my mood! I started walking aimlessly around the room, which was packed full of friends of Stefan and Elena, but my eye caught something...magical walking down the stairs is a beautiful plain black maxi dress which complimented her body and face perfectly. Her eyes we're husky blue which shone as bright as a shooting star. She has the most beautiful smile ever...'Wow,' I heard someone say from my right. But i couldn't take my eyes of this beauty, Riddhima looked...simply perfect. 'Why you always stare at her,' The same person asked me again, i recognised who it was at first, but i choose to ignore it. 'Stefan, you are staring at her aswell, shall i call your girlfriend.' I smirked. I could see from the corner of my eyes his lips curving into a big smile,' I was talking about Elena, next to Riddhima.' He smirked as i frowned. 'Damon, you and I both know it's time to give love another chance, like i did.' He replied simply and walked towards the stairs to escort Elena and Riddhima downstairs. I don't know Stefan, i thought. I walked towards Stefan and the others. 'Allow me.' I asked Stefan before taking Riddhima's arm and enterwined them with my arm. She blushed and looked down. Stefan and Elena, just smiled at us as we walked away.
We stood near the chocolate fountain, looking everywhere but at eachother, but neverless it did not even feel awkward. Neither i spoke, neither she did, but it felt just...right. Although her remarkable statement last night did make me smile, i did want to confront her -- yes, i meant 'tease' her about it like she does. 'Hello beutiful lady, may i have this dance?' Someone brought us out of our thoughts. It was Joe, a friend of Bonnie. How dare he ask Riddhima for a dance! 'I can't bare seeing you here standing alone, come and enjoy with the rest of us on the dance floor?' I replied after asking her to the dance. Why does he talk so weird? Argh, this guy pisses me off. She looked at me and i just looked away. Why did i do that! She is going to say No, i think...Please say no! I prayed in my thoughts until she said,'Yes, I'll dance with you.' She held his hand and walked with him on to the dancefloor. W*f was she doing?! Wait, why do I care?! I stared at her dancing with ...HIM. Why is he holding her like that? Move your hand away you ASS! Anger started to build within me, but i could not understand my feelings. Why was i bothered with her dancing with any guy? Why did i care whether i hurt her or not? Why do i care, if i lose her? I felt my brain about to explode with these continous thoughts about her ever since the first night i rescued her. 'Damon, where are you going?' Elena asked me, Stefan came up to me looking disappointed. 'Nowhere, i need some fresh air, I feel suffocated here.' Stefan looked at me with the just-ask-Riddhima-to-dance-with-you-look and i replied with the leave-me-alone look and he just looked annoyed. 'Elena leave the jerkass alone, he doesn't even know how to ask a girl to the dance!' Stefan complained to Elena, while shooting me glares. Elena sighed, 'Damon, give love another chance, once it's here don't let it go again, embrace it forever, otherwise it'll be too late. You might not be in love now but one day you will fall in love again and maybe this time, it will be true love and may last forever, just trust yourself and your love.' She replied with the sincerity in her voice which i could tell she was telling the truth, but i wasn't ready yet, and if the time does come like that, i won't let her go.
I brushed off the silly thoughts and went forward towards the dance floor which was packed full of people dancing on the floor. She might have been dancing with Joe, but for some reason she was staring at me the whole time. I could tell she looked away when she saw me approaching her. 'May i take it from here?' I asked Joe politely, trying to cover up the anger trying to make it's way through. 'Sure dude, she's all yours, she's own been staring at you.' He said as he walked off, i smiled at her as she looked down blushing. I took her hands and placed it around my neck, as i heard a slow song playing. I pulled her towards me, placing my arms around her waist. We looked into eachother's eyes and got lost, her eyes was some-what magical, it had intense love for her loved ones, it showed some pain from the past, and a waiting for the arrival for someone to sweep her off her feet...
'Riddhima.' I whispered so that only she could here. 'Mmm.' I heard her murmer. 'I don't love Katherine anymore. She was and always will be my past. Just a bad experience.' I told her speaking the truth from the bottom of my heart. I don't know why, i just wanted her to know that. I felt like i could trust someone and open up to after a long time. She smiled her 100watt smile and replied, 'Thank you for trusting me Damon, I don't ever break it.' She replied with the sincerity that i knew i could beleive her. She had honesty written all over her face. She was different than other girls. I know you have probably heard others mention it but i am speaking from the bottom of my heart. She doesn't care what others think, she hides her pain and makes everyone else happy. She puts herself in danger for the sake of people she loves. She does what she wants, and she is just a complete opposite of everyone i have met, inluding Katherine. Yes, indeed there was a time i loved Katherine more than anything in the world. But her betrayal broke me down, I realised she wasn't my true love, but just a pastime which would leave me one day and i realised it the day Riddhima entered my life. Although i am unware of my feelings for Riddhima, i know for sure i care about her and will always protect her. She has just been a few days guest, but somehow, she has something within her that makes me trust her already. 'Damon.' She called out to me breaking my thoughts. 'Yes?' I asked her. 'Uhh, the song's stopped.' She looked down blushing trying to get out of my hold. I could feel everyone's gaze on us as we we're still dancing when there was no music. I turned red, and held Riddhima's hand and walked towards Stefan and Elena. The music started again, and everyone begun to dance again. 'So that was some intense dance wasn't it?' Stefan began his teasing. 'Stefan, what we're you and Elena doing away from the crowd in Elena's room?' Riddhima replied. I looked at her stunned for a few seconds. But i realised she doesn't care what others think, she's unique, better and close to perfect in my eyes. Stefan turned red and Elena blushed, as me and Riddhima started laughing. We looked at eachother, and some-what felt...this is right. 'Hi Riddhima.' A voice brought us out of our conversation. We all turned to see some guy, i didn't recognise. I looked at Riddhima who looked stunned, shocked and hurt. This was the first time i saw her so broken, I wondered why she looked like that. I assume it has something to do with the man standing infront of us. 'Armaan.' She managed to say. 'What are you doing here Basket, I missed you!' He said with a huge smile and was about to hug her when, she slapped him. Ouch! That must of hurt! Although i was glad they didn't hug, i was pained to see the hatred, pain and disgust in Riddhima's eyes. Everyone stopped what they we're doing and came to see the scene. 'Armaan get out of here, don't create a scene.' Elena tried explaining to him. I guess, she knew him too. 'Stefan, get him out of here.' Elena asked Stefan for help. 'Didn't you hear her? Get out of here, before i throw you out myself!' Stefan yelled at his no-good-ass who couldn't care any less. 'Oh shut up boyfriend, I am talking to my girlfriend Riddhima.' He smiled at Riddhima, who looked away with disgust. Girlfriend? She was in a relationship? Why wouldn't she be? She is indeed beautiful. How could i be so stupid? Damon, she doesn't like you! 'EX.' Riddhima pointed out, looking at me. I walked up to Elena and whispered, 'Get everyone out of here, specially Riddhima, I'll deal with him.' Elena sent everyone away and took Riddhima upstairs, Who kept looking back at me. As soon as they disappeared, i punched this so-called-Armaan dude, who did he think he is?! 'W*f?' He held his eye. 'Get out of here, before i make you eat your own blood.' I said sternly, somehow he got the message a ran out. 'I'll go check on Riddhima and Elena.' Stefan said as he walked upstairs.
I wanted to go check on her, but i wanted to talk to her alone. I sat down waiting imapaitently for Elena and Stefan to come out. After half an hour or so, I saw Elena and Stefan heading downstairs. I ran towards them. 'How is she?' I gulped. 'She's fine, just sleeping.' Sleeping? I don't think so. I don't know why i just think she isn't. 'Oh. What happened? Who is that guy?' I just shot the questions at Elena. 'Oh Damon, i would want to tell you but i prefer is Riddhima told you, it's linked to her past and it's really painful. I promised her, I hope you understand.' She replied hopefully. 'Yeah i do. You guy's have had a pretty strange day, neither did elijah turn up so i suggest you all sleep.' I told them hoping they'd agree. 'Yeah, we're just heading to sleep.' Stefan replied. 'What about you?' Elena asked. 'I'm um..heading home.' Praying they'd be convinced. 'Oh okay. Goodnight.' Elena replied and walked back upstairs. 'I'm proud of you.' Stefan said as he walked away. Although i was his elder brother, he seemed like he was. I sighed, i waited about 2 hours until finally i heard Stefan and Elena, asleep. Bonnie didn't arrive at the party due to the fact her Grandma was ill. I opened Riddhima's door slowly, well technically Jeremy's door as she is staying at Elena's again. I could see her pretending to sleep. I walked in and closed the door. 'I know your awake.' I whispered, as she opened her eyes. Although it was dark, but due to my supernatural powers i could see her red puffy eyes. It pained me seeing her like that. I was supposed to be the bad guy, the one who never cares but somehow within these few days, she brought of the side of me i had been hiding for a long time. 'Damon.' She whispered in suprise as she continued, 'What are you doing here?' I smiled and walked towards her...I stopped as i stood in front of her. 'I came to talk to you.' 'Me?' She almost seemed shocked. 'Yeah...If that guy comes near you again i'll make sure i'll kill him.' I said with a serious face but to my suprise, i heard a giggle, which i've been wanting to hear all evening! 'Thanks I-i'm sorry. I want to tell you Damon, i really do but you understand right? I need some time, so i can console myself and then i can tell you. I trust you.' She said. I knew she wasn't only saying it to assure me, but she really did in fact trust me. I walked forward, closer and closer to here, as i knew she wouldn't step back, she wasn't those types. I kisssed her forehead and replied, 'I'm here, always.' I told her as i started walking out. She pulled my wrist. 'Please stay.' She whispered as i turned around and smiled. I tucked her into bed, and waited for her to fall asleep, somehow i fell asleep next to her.
