In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind
There's no other way
I'll pray to the gods: let him stay

The memories ease the pain inside
Now I know why

Katherine stood off to the shadows the sounds of patrons milling about The Grill surrounding her as she watched them from across the room. His lean body stretching across the teenager’s back as he showed her how to aim the pool stick the correct way, before jerking their hands back then forward at an unmatchable speed.

Three balls rolled quickly into the pockets, putting the brunette in the lead, not that Katherine had been keep score. Her eyes followed Elena’s movements as she grinned up at Damon, her whispered thank you causing him to beam before dipping his head in and capturing her lips in a soft kiss.

Katherine’s heart clenched at the love she could clearly see between them. She had always thought it was Stefan that she loved…Stefan that kept her going all these years even after all the time Damon spent searching for her, trying to bring her back when he thought she was lost.

But instead of appreciating what he offered she had been a ruthless bitch. She tore him down and when he was the only one in this world who had tried not leaving her behind she had ridiculed him for it. Found his weakness and stabbed him with it repeatedly, telling him it had never been him.

That it was his brother who had always and would always hold her love. But she’d been wrong. When she had finally made her way out of the tomb and they found a way to beat Klaus…Elena had finally succumbed to the feelings she harbored for the Older Salvatore brother.

Unable to repair her broken relationship with Stefan, she started new with Damon and surprisingly they were thriving as a couple. Neither willing to change themselves completely they met half way, compromising so they didn’t feel as if either of them were losing the person they were.

For all the harm Katherine had caused and all the havoc she reaped…this was the only thing that had touched her soul in years. The feeling of losing Damon, of no longer being the center of his world threw her off kilter making her reminiscent for the days where she meant something to him.

Laugher pulled her from her thoughts as she once again gazed at the couple across the room as if they were the only people there. Who knew she could be replaced so easily. Even as the thought trialed into her mind she knew it wasn’t true.

It had taken Damon a long time to let her go and now all she wanted him to do was grab on again, but she knew he wouldn’t. Not when he had her. So, she’d keep her distance and let him be happy for now like she never had before…because after everything she’d put him through…she owed him.

This was it…it was time to let go and walk away no matter how painful the thought might be. Until the day she could have him back again Katherine had her memories to ease the pain inside of her.
