"It was the Miss Mystic Falls Pageant. Stefan was supposed to be my escort, but he bailed on me. Damon stepped in. He saved me from being embarrassed in front of everyone. He took my arm and led me out with the rest of the girls and all their dates, and we danced. I remember that was the first time that I felt it, how sexy he was. I’d never let myself notice until then. I mean, obviously, I knew that he was attractive, but I didn’t want to see him that way."
