Together At Last

        It was a dark night in New Orleans, as a very human Katherine Pierce walked towards the compound, not knowing what she’d be walking in on. She had just come from a prison world, so she wasn’t in the best shape. All she knew was that she needed Elijah, and she had heard that he needed her.

        She stopped not far from the only bar in town, sensing a presence.

        She turned around, only to see a lone and hungry vampire.

        He grabbed her before she could do or say anything, sinking his fangs into the side of her neck. She was human, so she couldn’t fight, no matter how much she wanted to. She was too weak to do so. All she could do was hope for Elijah to rescue her before it was too late.

        A few minutes later, Elijah finished his shot glass of bourbon and left the bar. And as soon as he stepped out, he smelled blood and saw a vampire drop a girl to the ground who he would know anywhere. He didn’t know how she had become a human, but he had to save her, no matter what.

        Before the vampire could leave the scene, Elijah ripped his heart out and dropped it next to his body.

        A moment later, Elijah was instantly knelt at her side. He then gently pulled her into his arms and bit his wrist, putting it to her lips, making his blood go down her throat to save her.

        “Come on, Katerina. Stay with me,” he begged. I won’t lose you. I can’t. Not like this, he thought, as he forced his blood down her throat and looked down at her pale face. Then, as he scanned the rest of her, he realized that she had been hurt before she had been attacked by that vampire.

        A few minutes later, after her wounds had healed, he took his wrist away which instantly healed. He then gently put her arm around his shoulders and got to his feet with her in his arms, crook of arm supporting her head, right arm under her legs.

        A moment later, he vanished from the scene with her, heading across the river where Marcel and his vampires lived at. He was too angry at Klaus to enter the compound or see Klaus ever again, so he was heading for Marcel and his friends’ place. Besides, if Klaus saw her, he’d most likely kill her as much as he hated her. Being across the river was the safest place from Klaus that she could be.

        An hour later, he had layed her gently down on the couch and was now seated on the couch at her side, hoping she would be okay. She had to be okay or he would never forgive himself for leaving her, and never looking back and checking on her. No matter what, she was still his Katerina he would always love and care about. He needed her to wake up. They needed each other now more than ever before. Him to save her. Her to help him through his grief and despair.

        He rested his right hand on top of her left on, making circles with his thumb. He then rested his free hand on her forehead and looked silently down at her.

        Half an hour later, when she woke up, she realized that Elijah had saved her, and that he still cared about her, if not loved her.

        She gave him a smile, and he smiled back at her.

        “Thanks,” she said to him.

        “You’re welcome. You worried me. I thought I lost you. What has happened to you, Katerina?”

        She slowly sat up, still feeling weak, and he helped her. She then told him everything that had happened, starting the night of Elena’s graduation, and ending tonight when she had come from the prison world.

        After she had finished, it made him even more angry at Klaus for not informing him of her dying of old age eight months ago. He also blamed himself for not checking on her to make sure she was okay.

        “I’m so sorry, Katerina. If I had known—,” he started.

        “I know. You would’ve done all you could to help and save me,” she replied, interrupting what he was going to say.

        She smiled, letting him know that all was forgiven.

        He smiled back, thankful that she had forgiven him.

        They silently looked at each other, not knowing what else to say after not seeing each other for eight months. Then, it was such a moment between them, they suddenly were kissing, not knowing who started it or why they were kissing. It didn’t matter though, because they were still in love after everything they had been through together.
