celebrate elena (✿◠‿◠): season three
↳ “She’s just a girl. She loves blindly and recklessly even if it consumes her. And when it’s all said and done, there’s nothing more important than the bond of family.”
It’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task.
For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring.
I don’t ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same as I’ve always loved you, and always will.
