Distance (Kalijah)

The sun is filling up the room

And I can hear you dreaming

Do you feel the way I do right now?

I wish we would just give up

‘Cause the best part of falling

Call it anything but love

        It was a dark night in New Orleans, as a human Katherine Pierce knocked on the door to the compound, hoping Elijah would answer.

        A moment later, when the door opened, it was him. Now she just needed to convince him to help her. She was human and she had many enemies, so she needed protection. She had to do a lot of convincing because he had left her a few months ago, once again, for his family.

        “Katherine,” he said, not really greeting her.

        “Elijah, she greeted. “I need your help. I’m human ow and if my enemies find out, I’m dead. I need protection.” Against her “Katherine façade,” she added, “Please.”

        He looked at her, hating that he was about to do something he promised a long time ago that he wouldn’t do. Shut her out. He had no time right now to deal with her though, so he had no other choice. He would find her when he had the chance and time to help her, though.

        “Goodbye, Katerina,” he said, before closing the door and walking away from it and her.

        She stood there silently for a few minutes, before walking away. And as she did, memories surfaced.

And I will make sure to keep my distance

Say “I love you,” when you’re not listening

And how long can we keep this up, up, up?


        It was a beautiful day, as they stood in front of each other, her hand gently on the side of his face, as she looked up at him.

        “Of course, you’re not a means of survival. You looked out for me when I had no one. You’ve given me a second chance now when no one else will. I love you. Elijah.” He turned his face away and she dropped her hand. “You don’t believe me.”

        “I want to. It’s my disease. I just keep on wanting to believe you, but how can I when, at every turn, you give me a reason to doubt you?” he replied.

        He turned around and began to walk away.

        “Wait,” she called to him.

        “Goodbye, Katherine.”

*Mystic Falls- Mikaelson Mansion*

Please don’t stand so close to me

I’m having trouble breathing

I’m afraid of what you might see right now

I give you everything I am

All my broken heart beats

Until I know you’ll understand

        It was a dark night, as he stood in front of her. He had just told her that he was choosing family over her again. He was going to New Orleans to help his family with a witch problem.

        “It’s our turn, Elijah. Please,” she said, wanting him to reconsider.

        “Goodbye, Katerina.”

        He kissed her lightly on the forehead. Then he was gone.

        As she stood there, alone, feeling abandoned, her heart broke into a million pieces.

*Mikaelson Estate- 1492*

And I will make sure to keep my distance

Say “I love you” when you’re not listening

And how long can we keep this up, up, up?

And I keep waiting

For you to take me

You keep waiting

To save what we have

        It was a beautiful day, as they sat on a cement bench, after playing chase, discussing love.

        “I do not believe in love, Katerina,” he lied, trying not to fall for the human Klaus needed to kill to become the hybrid he was meant to be.

        “That is too sad for me to believe, my Lord. If we cease to believe in love, then why would we want to live?”

*England- 1492*

So I’ll make sure to keep my distance

Say “I love you” when you’re not listening

And how long can we keep this up, up, up?

I’ll make sure to keep my distance

Say “I love you” when you’re not listening

How long ‘til we call this love, love, love?

        It was a beautiful day, as Katerina, having just found out what existed and what Klaus wanted her for, ran through the woods. Then she tripped on a twig and when she saw Elijah, she got to her feet.

        He gave the moonstone to her.

        “Take this. There’s a cabin not far from here.” He pointed in the direction of it. “That’s a woman there. Show this to her and tell her I sent you. Go. I can’t hold them off for much longer.”

        She took it.

        “Thank you.”

        She ran until she reached the cabin and shown it to Rose and did as told. Rose let her in, but in the end, after Rose had fed her her blood to heal her, Katerina killed herself, woke up in transition, and fed on the old woman who owned the cabin which completed it. She apologized for her actions and then fled at vamp speed.


        Katherine, human and alone, found herself in the woods and sat against a tree. She closed her eyes, trying to figure out what to do now. Elijah had turned her away. He was her only hope and he had left her all alone and abandoned. She might as well give up.

        She sighed and then stayed silent.

        In the end, he went after her and granted her protection and a place to stay.
