The house was unusually quiet when I entered. Usually Eric is yelling or fooling around.
As I unloaded the groceries I looked out of the kitchen window to see Damon playing football with Eric. I smiled softly to myself. Damon is such an emotionless "rock" but when it comes to his son…our son… he is so kind. Then a bitter thought came to me. He's never showed me that kindness, but anyways I shouldn't care.
"Mommy, Mommy!" Eric yelled excitedly. I looked up to see him jumping up and down. I smiled and stepped outside.
"What, What?" I asked catching his contagious grin.
"I tackled Daddy?" Then I noticed Damon brushing himself off the ground. He had this sweet smile on his face. He looked perfect…Wait! Not perfect…ahh! It's so hard to live with Damon Salvatore.
"Hey, I didn't know you got back." Damon said kind of sheepishly. Yeah, I thought, because you wouldn't want me to see you have emotions other than cruel or cocky. My thoughts were interrupted by Eric's stomach.
"You hungry boys?" I asked while tickling Eric's belly.
"MAC & CHEESE" Eric screamed excitedly.
"Okay, Okay good thing I bought like 6 boxes because a big boy like you needs a lot of food" Just when I finished my sentence Eric took off inside.
"You know it means a lot to him when you play football with him. He likes to share that with you." I whispered. I looked up into Damon's eyes to see guilt flash in them briefly.
"Yeah I know. It's just hard with work and stuff." he mumbled "
"Yeah I get it, but I just wanted you to know. Maybe you can be the one to take him to his football game." I suggested.
"Oh um… about that. I have to talk to you later about tomorrow." I knew that he was going to tell me that he wasn't going to be there tomorrow.
The doorbell rang. I rushed downstairs to greet Caroline and her husband Klaus. Instead two kids ran past me and straight upstairs to Eric's room.
"Oh my gosh I am so sorry about them. They get their manners from me." Caroline winked. Oh course she couldn't blame Klaus about manners. He seemed like he was from the olden days.
"It's no problem. DAMON!" I assured her. Then called Damon.
"WHAT?" he shouted.
"The guests are here." I could hear him mutter something about Barbies. I hope he behaved himself tonight.
