Song I listened to for this chapter: Another Day in Paradise by Phil Collins.
Damon is trying to get her to feed from him but growls when she can’t swallow, and nods in gratitude as Elijah takes her head and coaxes her throat to take his blood. He is almost panicking, only the long years of solitude and the knowledge that keeping a steady head would be better to help his Mate making it possible.
Klaus soon turns her over enough to see what caused the injury, and snarls as he sees the white oak stake in her back, barely missing her heart. Before he gets a chance, Jasper grabs it, pulls it out, and flings it across the room. Klaus covers the wound with his hand and applies pressure to try to stop the bleeding. All three members of her family are operating as one to save the tiny woman before them.
The four watch as the wound in her back slowly closes, and breathe out a sigh of relief. And when she chokes, all the males’ shoulders relax as they realize she will be fine. Damon is leaning over her, needing to see her eyes the minute she opens them, and the others watch anxiously for them to reconnect.
Bella’s brown eyes flutter, then fly open to meet her Mate’s worried eyes. She tells Damon, “I remember what I forgot.”
As Damon consoles his Mate by telling her that it was not her fault, with Klaus and Elijah adding that they had also forgotten about him since they had believed him to still be imprisoned, elsewhere someone lands on their feet behind Alaric and, before he can react, they snap his neck.
They snarl as they stare down at the vampire hunter, then turn to the vault and push the rock away to reveal Katherine and Stefan inside waiting. She lifts an eyebrow. “I take it you have seen the truth for yourself?” She has her arms crossed, waiting for him to come.
She laughs when the other snarls at her, and walks out of the vault. When Stefan calls out to her, she looks behind and lifts an eyebrow. “Did you really think I would risk myself for you? Especially after you have forsaken me for that pitiful copy of me?” She rolls her eyes as she places her hand on her hip.
While he stares at her, she takes the arm of the being who freed her and tosses them over her shoulder. “If you behave, maybe I will come back for you.” She laughs as she walks away, thinking that he will at least be out of her way and that she will come back, once everything is resolved.
With that he watches as she walks away from him, yet again.
In another part of the world, a large door opens and a man enters a chamber with three beings seated on thrones. He mockingly bows to them.
The one in the middle waives at him, and asks impatiently, “Well?”
The man smirks and tells him, “It is all true. She knows of us, and it seems there is one of our kind protecting her. If any of us come near, they are killed. But your laws are being mocked, oh great kings.” He leans against the wall cleaning his nails as he waits for the inevitable outburst to come.
The white haired being on the right side of the one who spoke snarls out, but the man just laughs at them. “What will you do? Your oh-so-mighty laws have been flaunted by one you favor, and there is a woman running around with the secret who is now a celebrated researcher. I hear she specializes in Vampires – so much so that she wrote that god-awful book that has been so popular.” He cannot help but shudder at the monstrosity that the masses are reading and clamoring for another of its type.
The rulers snarl, and the man laughs as he leaves the throne room. He tells one of the vampires outside the door, “Heidi, do be a dear and bring me a couple. I’ll be in my rooms.” He waives her off as he walks down the hallway.
The vampire in question shudders at his request, but quickly leaves to comply. The man strides through the halls as if they are his own, whistling a tune as he thinks over everything he has discovered.
Oh yes, it is about time for some changes around here, and he knows exactly who will be enacting those changes. He laughs, and the other vampires in the castle shudder.
