In a completely new story written specifically for this site, we get a look back in time to Matt and Elena’s first date, a year before Elena will meet Stefan. Matt takes Elena to the most expensive restaurant around, and finds that she isn’t the Ice Princess he’s been expecting. Cuddly, romantic—the greatest danger in this story is the risk of social humiliation.

Haha, this was quite a start for a series I've been planning to start for some time!

This short story describes the first date of Matt and Elena.
I don't know what will go on between them on the rest of the books, but this was really an ideal date.
Although, almost nothing went as planned, the author managed to show in the best way, that real feelings of love are not built in money and glittering things, but on smaller, that are more significant!

Towards the end, the story took a quite dream-like tu

Me ha encantado este libro y es que en todas sus páginas reía y no paraba de decir "Que bellos". Definitivamente me dio una nueva idea de Crónicas Vampíricas; solo con Matt y Elena se puede hacer una de esas obras de romance típicas y cliché del YA.

Matt, fue encantador en este libro o bueno, en realidad, siempre lo es, pero aquí me pareció un nivel superior (si así se puede decir), se nota que ama a Elena con todas sus fuerzas, ningún chico haría eso por cualquier joven (al menos que le guste),

Before I Read the Book...

I could have read these extra prequel stories first, but I felt like since technically they were released later, that I should read the actual FIRST book, you know, first...

Summary of the Story

Matt takes Elena out on their first date and everything that could possibly go wrong does, but in the end those things end up being what makes the night perfect.

I really didn't expect to LOVE this short story of Matt and Elena. I am not a fan of VD although I follow the story. I actually cried towards the ending. How freakin cute was these few pages. I always wondered how they started going out. I wonder if there is one where (view spoiler).

As much as I don't care for her stories on her site, I'm willing to give this and Jez and Morgead's Night Out an chance. Hopefully they're an improvement like I've been hearing.

EDIT: Well, Jez and Morgead's story was an flop, Hopefully this one is better.

This was one of the sweetest, cutest and loveliest stories I've ever read! :D I already was in love with Matt Honeycutt, but this story made me even love him more. It was a dream to read it, perfect, tender, sweet and cute. To say it in style of the story: "It was dreamlike perfect!" I hope there is more stuff like this! :D

This was such a cute story! I loved the "rite of passage" (for lack of better explanation) the girls had for new dates. I wish my circle of girlfriends would have done that!! I also loved Matt's response.

Later on, I love the twist, and even better, loved the clever solution and ending.

So cute! is what my first thought was after finishing the story. This is exactly how I imagined it would go, poor sweet Matt. I wished there would be more stories about those days, it sounds like Matt and Elena used to have a lot of fun together in the good old days.

I absolutely loved this, I read it after reading the first book and think this really shows the real Elena. Although everything that could go wrong actually went wrong it was an amazing story with an adorable ending.

such a cute, sweet story. makes you really love the specialness that Matt and Elena shares, and makes it that much harder once you know that matt ends up losing Elena to Stefan. But, he's such a great guy. I hope he ends up with a good woman, like Bonnie! LOL!

This was a wonderful book as all of L.J Smith books are, but this truely made me appreciate all of her other books more. It was a little bit corny in a few places but still a great book, it definitely told you more about Matt.

Matt finally got the courage to ask Elena out. He has it all and a fancy restaurant to impress his date. One by one as things fall apart, he realizes that Elena is not exactly what he first thought. She is better...

Well I never really gave much thought to Elena and Matts old relationship since it practically ended before the books began, but this was really cute. It makes you appreciate their connection and now friendship.

This was a fun little story to read. In the books, Matt and Elena's past is never shown in detail, so I love that Lisa Smith put this out. I loved Matt and Elena's innocent romance. It differs greatly from the love she eventually shares with the Salvatore brothers. Great little story!

Really nice story! I liked the character development/description, especially from Elena. It fits really nice with who she is in the books.

It was so cute! Poor Matt, the gypsy was right though, he does still stick around, just not with Elena.

I loved this short story from the series it was very sweet but kind of made me regret that they aren't actually together in the main books as they seem to suit each other really well.

Very cute short story about Matt and Elena that gives them a better background and more insight into their characters.

This was a cute little story and was a good introduction to The Vampire Diaries series. It also helped you get to know the characters of Matt and Elena better.

This was a great sneak peek into the history behind Matt and Elena as a couple before Stefan, and before her parents died.
