"You are by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my 173 years on this earth. But I get to die knowing that I was loved not just by anyone. By you, Elena Gilbert. It is the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never gonna get any better than this. I peaked. I love you, Elena. Bye”
These were the last words that Damon said to Elena.
And these last words were said with the mentality that he would never see her again.
That he would never get the chance to make it back to her.
"I love you, Elena"
She can’t hear him but he says them anyways.
