Chapter Text

*1864*

 

Love is a burning thing

And it makes a fiery ring

Bound by wild desire

I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire

I went down down down and the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns the ring of fire

The ring of fire

 

It was a beautiful day, as Katherine and human Damon rolled around in bed together until she was on top of him. He knew what she was, but he wasn’t afraid, believing that she would never hurt him. She was now on top of him and showed her vampiric face to him, veins showing on her face and fangs coming out.

He touched her face where her veins were, not at all afraid.

She smiled, as he touched her face while she was vamped out.

 

I fell into a burning ring of fire

I went down down down and the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns the ring of fire

The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet

When hearts like ours meet

I fell for you like a child

Oh, but the fire went wild

 

It was a dark night, as they ran through the woods, her at a human pace. Then he caught up with her and soon they stood with her back against a tree.

“Why must you run from me?” he questioned her.

“Because I know that you will chase,” she said with a smile.

“Then let me chase you forever.”

She used a fingernail to make a cut by her collarbone.

“I won’t feed you, Damon. If you want it, take it,” she said, teaching him to take whatever he wanted without consequences.

“I choose you, Katherine,” he said, as he bent towards the opened wound to drink from her.

 

*Fool Me Once*

 

I fell into a burning ring of fire

I went down down down and the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns the ring of fire

The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire

I went down down down and the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns the ring of fire

The ring of fire

 

It was a dismal night, as vampire Damon stood in the tomb, looking around at the desiccated vampires, looking for Katherine, a blood bag in hand, thinking that she’d be in the tomb. When he looked around at the vampires though, he didn’t see Katherine. He saw every vampire from 1864, but her. Angry, hurt, upset, and grieving, thinking she was possibly dead for good, he through the blood bag at the wall and it splattered.

“She’s not here,” he said. Then he yelled, “She’s not here!”

 

*The Return*

 

And it burns, burns, burns the ring of fire

The ring of fire

The ring of fire

The ring of fire

The ring of fire

 

It was a dismal night in the living room, as they stood in front of each other after Damon had called a pause on their make out.

“I have a question. Answer it and it’s back to fireworks and rockets red glare. Answer it right and I’ll forget the last 145 years that I’ve spent missing you. I’ll forget how much I loved you. I’ll forget everything and we can start over. This could be our defining moment because we have time. That’s the beauty of eternity. I just need the truth, just this once.”

“Stop. I already know the question and its answer. The truth is…I’ve never loved you.”

She left the boarding house, as her words sunk in, though she’d lied to him to protect him.

Upset at what she’d said, he threw an empty shot glass at the fireplace and it shattered into pieces.
