Stafen:How were tryouts?
Damon:Did you make the team? Very Emerson, the way you reveal your soul with so many…adjectives.
Stafen:What are you doing here?
Damon:I’ve come to apologize. I’ve been doing some thinking, some soul searching, and I want us to start over. We need to put the past behind us. You are my little brother and if you want to live a normal, happy human life, then I want that for you. Maybe I can do it, too. That I can learn to be a non-living living person. Maybe there’s hope for both of us.
Stafen:You know, it doesn’t have to be this way, Damon.
Damon:Of course it doesn’t. I saw Elena today, BTW. That means “by the way”. She was at cheerleading practice. She looked so perky in her little short shorts. Just… Simmer down, I didn’t even go near her. I’ve got my own cheerleader now. Oh, that reminds me… I gotta run. I have a date. Sweaty palms. Wish me luck.
