Forgive and Forget

        It was a dark night, as Elijah fought against the Hunters who had been hunting the wolves, though it wasn’t much of a fight. He was a vampire and they were just merely humans that needed stopped.

        Meanwhile an injured Katherine, covered in blood with an ascendant in hand, appeared in the Bayou woods and, once she realized that she had finally escaped, she knew that she was in New Orleans. She took a step, aiming to start walking, needing help and knowing without it that she would soon die from her injuries, but she ended up staggering and having to try and keep from falling to the forest floor from weakness. Then everything went black for her.

        After Elijah disposed of the bodies, he began to walk home through the woods, but smelling the scent of human blood, he stopped and, after hearing a slow heartbeat, he vanished to follow the scent trail and heartbeat, but soon he couldn’t hear anything from whoever it was.

        A few moments later, he arrived at the scene, only to see a very injured Katerina.

        “Katerina?” he said, surprised to see her in the same town as Niklaus.

        He was instantly knelt beside her and gently pulled her into his arms and bit his wrist, putting it to her lips, making his blood go down her throat to heal her wounds.

        A few minutes later, after she had healed, he took his wrist away which instantly healed. He then gently layed her back down and started to try and revive her. He didn’t know why or how she was here or what had happened to her. All he knew was that the one person that he still loved, though he had left almost a year ago, had ended up in New Orleans one way or another. And after recent events, she was the only one he could trust. No matter how many times he had chosen family first, technically turning his back on her, she would never turn her back on him or backstab him or kill or curse someone he cared deeply about. The only thing that had made him leave was all her continuous lies. Lying was her only flaw when it came to him. She would never betray or manipulate him. And above all, they had loved each other for 500 years. That kind of love didn’t die after only a year.

        After a few minutes, he finally heard a heartbeat and her breathing.

        He sighed in relief and gently picked her up in his arms, heading back to the compound.

        Once upstairs in his room, he gently layed her down in his bed and sat on her bedside, waiting for her to come to.

        He rested a gentle hand on the side of her face and looked down at her.

        “Katerina, can you hear me?” he called to her, hoping she would wake up soon.

        An hour later, when she woke up, it relieved him.

        She gave a smile, seeing him.


        He smiled back.

        “Katerina,” he greeted, before asking, “What has happened to you? You’re human.”

        “I took my anger out on Elena after you left and she shoved the cure down my throat. After Silas drank the cure from me, I started aging and me being me, not wanting to die, went into Elena’s body, wanting to live just a little longer. After they found out, Stefan killed me. Somehow, when he killed me, I was sent to the 1994 prison world where I ran into Kai. What you saw when you found me is Kai’s doing. That’s not the best part. Klaus knew I was human and dying, but judging from your face, he never told you. I assume Caroline told him not to come torment me on my deathbed though, since he never came by,” she explained.

        Knowing Klaus had known, it infuriated him. It didn’t surprise him, though. His brother hated her with a dark passion.

        “I’m sorry, Katerina,” was all he could say. All he could really do was to apologize for abandoning her and for Klaus going back to Mystic Falls to torment her on her deathbed. There wasn’t much he could do.

        She rested a gentle hand on the side of his face.

        “I know. You don’t need to apologize for Klaus and you weren’t there, because you didn’t know. All is forgiven.”

        She gave a smile.

        He looked at her, amazed at how much she had changed since her transformation back into a human.
