The Family Affair
A Vampire Diaries Fan Fiction
It was dawn and the sun was about to creep through the horizons. Though, they're still safe in the silent night. The long drive from Charlotte should've been exhausting, but for them, it was rather invigorating. They were the creatures of the night – Earth's abomination. They belonged in the emptiness of the dark. They are nothing but deprived creatures of humanity, though they spend eternally on vicious killing and pleasures of the liberties of life.
The car came to a halt and Elizabeth looked at Damon. It was rather awkward for someone who is in love with the doppelganger, Elena, to accompany her on a dangerous trip. A hybrid came after them by the orders of Klaus who told Damon to back off from Elizabeth. Though, she couldn't help but smirk at this thought. Damon was her close ally now. He was closer than her cousins will ever be.
Elizabeth turned to Damon and frowned.
"What is going on?" She asked. Damon pursed his lips and brought a finger upon her lips. He then pointed north.
"A car's coming." He said in a hushed tone. Elizabeth looked straight as lights emerged from the dark woods of Mystic Falls. Elizabeth narrowed her eyes. It was a silver car, and it was going towards them. She lifted her chin up slowly as she wondered who it was. She couldn't see through the tinted windows. She watched the car as it went towards them and was already very close. They even thought it would them until the car suddenly stopped a few meters away.
"Who the…" She murmured, but Damon immediately hushed her, so she trailed off. The car was right in front of theirs, and saw that the headlights were turned off. After a few moments, the doors opened and two people came out. Elizabeth glanced at Damon and smirked. She should have known it was them. Who else would find them?
"Come out Elizabeth, we know you're in there…" Elijah called as he stood by his Porsche's hood. They also saw Rebekah walk towards Elijah and stood beside him with her arms folded across her chest. Elizabeth looked over at Damon who also glanced at her then nodded. She then turned to the car door, opened it, stepped out, and shut it behind her as she looked at her cousins. She then walked towards the front of Damon's new Hummer.
"I didn't know you were looking for me." Elizabeth said with a smile. She then heard Damon shut his door as he too walked towards her and stood beside her.
"Save your breath, Elizabeth." Rebekah said impatiently. "We know you're hiding something. And we can see that you have been with Damon Salvatore all this time…" Rebekah smiled. "Very interesting, cousin… Very interesting." She arched her eyebrows at Elizabeth who only gave them an amused smile.
"Indeed. Though, I shall correct you for I am not hiding anything." Elizabeth said. Her expression, amused but her tone was firm. Of course she had to lie, for various reasons. One of it is because Rebekah and Elijah cannot be trusted. The white oak stake can kill her or Klaus. If they choose to become allies with Klaus again and destroy her, she can be killed. This time, forever. Elijah gave her a hard look, and so did Rebekah.
"Then where have you been?" Elijah asked. "Dear cousin, you do know that you have us worried." Elizabeth snickered as she looked away and back at them again. She wasn't going to be fooled with this rubbish. The only reason she was alive again was because they wanted to kill Klaus. And she can. She will. Though, even if Rebekah woke her from her deep slumber of death, she wasn't going to put up with the grateful gestures. But she will return the favor when she finally kills Klaus. For now, everything was stale.
"You shan't speak such rubbish words, Elijah." She replied with an amused smile. "Your faux concerns for me never look good on you. Though I must say, you play a good character – like everyone else does." She gave them a smile which only wiped off Elijah and Rebekah's smirk off their faces.
"I suggest you speak kindly, Elizabeth." Rebekah said her face stern. "Shall I remind you that I had brought you to life from that rotting cemetery in Charlotte?"
"And I do thank you for that Rebekah. Though, I must admit that I do know why you did that." She replied. "You should know that I am not a fool and I do know oh so well that you only woke me because you wanted me to kill Klaus. And if that does concern you, well, I am going to tell you that I will kill Klaus without anyone's help." Elizabeth added this time her face stern and her tone was very firm. Rebekah and Elijah shared her expression. All three Orginals are now annoyed and were very serious.
After brief moments of silence and glaring, Elijah finally broke the ice. "Then you should know that the other coffins are with us. And we are planning to undagger our other brothers."
"Yes, I do know." She replied calmly. "Stefan told me. And I also heard that there is another coffin that cannot be opened for it is sealed with a spell."
"Do you know who it is?" Rebekah asked, with her voice low and serious.
"I haven't got the slightest idea." Elizabeth said.
Stefan was having a glass of blood from a blood bag for his breakfast until he heard the door was slammed shut. Of course, only a vampire can hear that loudly. And he knew very well who it was. So when he continue to eavesdrop as the footsteps came to a close, he immediately when by his bedroom door, opened it, and there, he saw his brother Damon who looked at him once he opened the door.
"Well hello there brother…" Stefan said with a smile as he brought the glass upon his lips and sipped.
"Up so early, Stefan?" Damon said with a smirk. "Tell me, have you been thinking about Elena all night?" Stefan rolled his eyes as he looked away then back at him. Damon could be very cruel and mean, though these comments aren't really much of a surprise. He's been that way for a very long time.
"No…" Stefan replied with a smile. "Though, I should be asking you where you and Elizabeth had been. Tell me, are you having a secret affair?" Damon smirked as he looked away.
"No…" He shook his head as he looked back at Stefan. He saw Damon's icy blue eyes meet his, and he narrowed his eyes as a quirky smile curved on his lips. "Maybe." Damon then shrugged. "But whatever it is, it's none of your business brother." He then was about to start walking before Stefan stopped him by continuing to speak.
"So you are still compelled to her, that's why you were with her?" Stefan said, frowning. Damon looked at him and smiled which only tickled Stefan's curiosity more.
"Quite the contrary brother." Damon replied. "She granted me my freedom just last night." Without another word and without waiting for Stefan to say something else, Damon continued walking towards his room. After a few moments, Stefan heard Damon's bedroom door close.
"You shouldn't have done that!" Klaus growled as he walked into the room. He wasn't happy about this. And he's not happy about how completely indifferent Elizabeth looked once he knew she was in his living room. "You know that that will upset me, Elizabeth. You shouldn't push me off my edge…"
"What was I supposed to do, Nik?" Elizabeth said, finally looking at him impatiently. "You sent your hybrid pest who was pestering me. You ordered him to go for Damon, and since your hybrids are sired to you, they cannot do anything but obey you. Now, I killed him, because he was annoying. It's done and that's that."
"Do not be rubbish, Elizabeth." Klaus replied, scrounging his nose in annoyance. "I know where you were. You were in Charlotte where Mikael had been tombed for twenty years."
"And that was where I was tombed too for centuries." Elizabeth interrupted. She then stood up, and faced Klaus. He was glaring at her, and she was stern. He knew her far too well. She's not exactly easy to deal with unlike his siblings who can be easily put off with daggers.
"What were you doing there?" He asked with his voice low and angry.
"I was showing Damon where everyone kept me." Elizabeth arched her eyebrows. "The information doesn't seem to be clicking, so I told him to come with me and showed him." Klaus snickered as he rolled his eyes and looked away.
"I know that Salvatore. He's the stubborn one. The prick." Klaus continued to say as he finally looked back at her. "You don't expect me to believe that he accompanied you for a field trip."
"No, but if I told you he was compelled, then I guess my reason is credible." Elizabeth said with a smile. Klaus continued to give her a hard stare. And she continued to stare back at him. This doesn't amuse him at all. In fact, he didn't like any of this. For some reason, he has a gut feeling that Elizabeth is somehow lying. Not just to him, but perhaps to all of them. He hadn't seen Rebekah and Elijah since last night.
"Don't lie to me Elizabeth…" Klaus said. "It doesn't go with your beauty."
"And don't you dare send another one of your hybrid pests to me or to Damon. If you do, I will rip their hearts out all at the same time." Elizabeth she said, her voice was firm as she continued to stare into his eyes. And Klaus couldn't take it anymore. Elizabeth always drove him crazy. It is true that centuries ago, Elizabeth had been easier. Her love was genuine that he always appreciated it, respected it, until she meddled on the sacrifice. He knew she was jealous of Katherine, but that was definitely beyond the line for her to meddle into. And he was certain he already made it clear for centuries.
"Why are you protecting that Salvatore prick so much?" Klaus said in frustration. "I would've understood if it was Stefan you were fascinated into, but Damon? I cannot believe you're actually that interested in him."
"Damon and I share the same feelings. The anger, the emotions are all inside us, the things we've lost, the rejection, all of it. We feel the same." Elizabeth said more firmly now. "And if you are wondering, yes, I am still angry… no, I am still enraged about what you've done to me, Nik. It's not something easy to forget."
"Well put all that rubbish away." Klaus replied. "You won't get anywhere…"
"Oh I can…" Elizabeth replied, nodding. "I can get away from you. And I refused to be controlled only to be betrayed in the end!" She said. Her voice grew louder as her emotions intensified.
"I loved you… And that's the truth." Klaus said slowly, his voice was low and nearly inaudible. Elizabeth continued to look into his eyes.
"Too late, Nik…" She replied sharing the same tone as his. "You can go to hell." She then turned around and left leaving him standing there.
"Now hold my hand and try harder!" Bonnie said. They've been in the cave for hours, and it was nearly sun down. They couldn't open the coffin. And Abbey hasn't been trying enough to concentrate on getting her powers; since she lost it once she put Mikael in that tomb in a cemetery in Charlotte. True enough that Abbey has a lot to owe Bonnie, but she was willing to forgive her if they accomplished this mission – to finally open this coffin that can kill Klaus for good.
Abbey nodded as fresh tears were still on her cheeks. She held Bonnie's hand firmly, as they both closed their eyes and started chanting the spells. Bonnie continued to squeeze Abbey's hand as she continued to concentrate on the spell and Abbey as well. They've put candles around the cave, and she suddenly felt the surge of power channeling through the both of them in the middle of the ritual. And once they've felt the power, the candle fires intensified.
After a few moments, they heard the coffin unlocked, and Bonnie and Abbey finally opened their eyes. They were both breathing heavily. "We did it…" Bonnie breathed as a smile slowly crept on her lips. Abbey nodded as she smiled greatly.
"We did it!" She happily said.
"I'll just call Stefan and tell him we've finally opened it…" Bonnie said, putting out her mobile phone from her pocket and went out of the cave to get a good signal. Abbey continued to breath heavily as she was about to follow Bonnie behind before she heard a thud in the coffin which alarmed her immediately. She frowned and turned to the coffin which was in the middle of the cave. Suddenly she heard another thud and this time the coffin flew open.
She then let out a gasp and a scream.
"I think it's time…" Elijah said with a smile as he stood by the two coffins in Klaus' mansion. Klaus wasn't in, and Elijah and Rebekah let Stefan and Damon sneak in, as they finally do what they should've done for a very long time. Elijah looked at Rebekah who gave him a nod, and Stefan and Damon stood behind her, with their arms crossed over their chests, patiently waiting. Elijah held the dagger that was dug deep in one of his brother's chest, and slowly pulled it out. And without another word, he went to the other coffin where his other brother lay, and did the same. Once he was done, he turned to his audience with his face stern. "Let the games begin…"
Elena heard a knock on the door, so she came downstairs and opened it, only to see someone she didn't expect to be there. She knew Elizabeth and Damon were already back from god knows where, but she wasn't exactly expecting her to be on their doorstep.
"Elizabeth…" Elena said.
"Can I come in?" Elizabeth asked, smiling her assertive smile. Elena nodded.
"Yeah." She replied, and Elizabeth came in as Elena closed the door behind her. "What are you doing here?" She watched Elizabeth turned around to face her as she continued to glance around the house.
"I just came to find Damon. I thought he would be here…" Elizabeth then shrugged. "Or you know where he is." She added with a smile. Elena frowned as she felt her heart thumping in her chest. She felt nervous and as if in danger when Elizabeth was with her.
"They're at Klaus' manor." Elena nearly murmured as she mustered up all her strength to speak loud. Elizabeth then frowned.
"They? Who are they?" She asked. Elena continued to frown. Why didn't Elizabeth know about this when she should be a part of the plan? But then, Elena felt as if she needed to tell Elizabeth the truth that Elijah was undaggering the other Originals.
"Elijah, Rebekah, and Stefan," Elena said. "They're undaggering the other Orginals. Bonnie and Abbey already opened the sealed coffin, and Elijah and the others are planning to kill Klaus tonight." Elizabeth frowned.
"What?" She asked in disbelief. Elena watched her expression turn stern in annoyance and she immediately held Elena's hand as she pulled her out the door. "You're coming with me." She dragged Elena behind with a tremendous grip on her.
"You're hurting me!" Elena nearly shouted but Elizabeth ignored her as they went towards the car, opened the door to the passenger's seat and shoved Elena in, and shut it. She then quickly went to the driver's seat, got in, and shut the door as she started the car immediately.
"Bonnie called; she said they'd already opened the coffin." Stefan said, getting back in the room as the all waited for the other Originals to finally be resurrected. Elijah turned to him then nodded. They've been waiting for an hour already and it was already night time. Fortunately, Klaus hasn't come back at all.
"Good…" Elijah said. "Everything's going according to plan, then." Stefan, Damon and Rebekah nodded. They only planned this last night, and he was the one who got to fill in the details for Damon who understood it perfectly. Stefan told him to keep his mouth shut to Elizabeth since Elijah and Rebekah thinks that Elizabeth and Klaus were allies, which wasn't true, as Damon had told him. Stefan was confused for a moment, until Damon, filled in the details for him about their trip to Charlotte as well.
"Nik will be back soon. And if he does, we're ready for him." Rebekah said with her silky accent.
"Yes, and if all else fails, we'll take the fall for it." Elijah replied.
"You better…" Damon said. "I've already had my attempts, I'm sure Klaus wouldn't be so pleased with us." He added with a smirk. Then they heard the door shut. They all turned to look at the arch way, and knew it was already Klaus. Elijah put a finger upon his lips to tell them they should just keep quiet. Without another word, Elijah went out of the room and into the foyer where he saw Elizabeth, holding Elena's wrist. Elizabeth then saw him and immediately walked towards him. Her expression was not pleased and Elena was struggling under the great pressure of Elizabeth's grip.
"What are you doing here?" Elijah asked, frowning.
"What the hell do you think you're doing?" Elizabeth demanded, as she saw the other looking at her from across the room.
"We were having another plan, since you seemed to be useless." Elijah said plainly which made Elizabeth narrow her eyes.
"Planning something without my consent, pretty desperate Elijah," She replied as she made a bitter smirk. Stefan couldn't help but stare at Elena. He was concerned that Elizabeth was breaking her wrist.
"Let her go." Stefan said firmly, looking hard at her. Elizabeth gave him a sharp look as she shrugged and rolled her eyes in annoyance. She then let go of her wrist which made Elena breath in relief.
"And I see you have Damon with you." Elizabeth said bitterly. "So he's now part of your team?" She glanced at Damon, who was crossing his arms over his chest and was only silent as he gave her a look.
"I know you're upset, Elizabeth." Elijah said calmly. "But we're all on the same boat. We all want the same thing, so you might as well go with our plan." Elizabeth then raised her eyebrows.
"Fine," She shrugged as she smiled slowly. "I'd love to see you all fail anyway."
Klaus came in, and walked into the living room only to see Elizabeth sitting on the velveteen chair. This doesn't surprise him, yet he was still angry. He knew that she cannot resist him. And he knew very well that she still loved him the same as before. He hid a smirk under his lips, and gave Elizabeth a hard look. "What are you doing here?"
"I just came to see if you were alright." Elizabeth shrugged with a smile. "You know very well that I cannot possibly let you do stupid things to yourself again." Klaus gave her a faint smile, hiding his true feelings. Sure, he did kill a bunch of people tonight, sucking them dry, and leaving them just after he did. And Elizabeth knew that.
"Do not pretend to be concerned," Klaus said. "You know it doesn't suit you." Elizabeth shrugged afterwards.
"And your feelings for me do not suit you either." She smirked. Klaus eyes grew wild slowly as he realized that she was actually read his mind. How can he forget that? She was a master of that skill, and she did only tell him that once. She admitted it to him, that one night centuries ago, that Mikael had taught him to go deep into human's thoughts and deeper to a vampire's. He couldn't help but be annoyed at this. "Do not be upset, Nik. It's good that you remember." She read his mind then said that afterwards. "And we have a surprise for you…" She added, smiling. He frowned as he saw her glance behind him, so he too, glanced behind him only to see Elijah and Rebekah standing by the archway.
"What is it?" He asked, not pleased. Elijah smiled.
"Perhaps we should show you." He said, and after a few moments, Kol walked in with that smug smile on his face, wearing clothes centuries ago.
"Long time brother…" Kol said with his silky accent, and his brown hair all disarray.
"Kol," He let out a gasp. And after he did, another one walked in with his vampire speed and held up his hand. "Finn… Don't!" Finn then drove the dagger at the palm of his hand and his eyes had widened as he felt the pain in his hand, and saw Finn in disbelief. Then, Finn pulled the dagger out almost immediately as he let out a shout.
"Surprised, brother?" Rebekah said with a smirk. He couldn't help but feel betrayed. She then got another dagger and drove it on his abdomen. "This is for our mother." He let out a shout of pain, as Kol held him behind, before he run away.
"I wanted it to be for all of us. A place we can call home to be a family again." Klaus said. Elizabeth couldn't help but smile. This was fun, to see Klaus so angry and in despair, this was the perfect revenge. But not perfect enough. She knew she had to do it somehow. And this was the time. "All I want was for us to be united again. None of us would ever have to be alone again." Klaus added. And without another word, Elizabeth snuck behind Klaus, getting the White Oak Stake from her coat's breast pocket.
"Daggering us and keeping us in a coffin does not make us feel like we're family." Elijah said, firmly.
"In fact, we will be united again, without you. You'll be alone, always and forever." Rebekah added. Elizabeth was now raising the White Oak Stake, and she immediately sent to them to continue looking at Nik's eyes and not at her to finally kill him. Sure, Elijah and the others were surprised. Damon and the others were still there, watching silently, behind the Originals.
"And you have used Elena and the Salvatores to help you…" Klaus growled with his voice deep and meaningful. "If you leave me, I will haunt all of you down!"
"Then you become everything you hate…" Elijah interrupted. "Our father," He added which made Klaus feel surprised.
"I'M THE HYBRID! I CAN'T BE KILLED!" Klaus shouted in anger with his eyes full of tears. "I have nothing to fear from any of you!"
"You will when we have the coffin…" Elijah said, but once he did, they heard the door open. Elizabeth was about to drive the stake on his back, and kill him forever, before they were interrupted. They all turned to look to see, Esther.
"Mother…" Rebekah whispered in surprise. And Esther stood there, looking at everyone, as she walked towards Klaus.
"Stop, Elizabeth." Esther had said, which made her put the dagger down, and Klaus glanced at her. And Klaus was crying. Esther continued to look at his son, as Elizabeth watched behind Klaus, keeping the White Oak Stake in her coat again. "Look at me." She said firmly and slowly, Klaus raised his head and looked at his mother in shame. Once he did, Esther continued, "Do you know why I'm here?"
"You're here to kill me…" Klaus murmured.
"Niklaus, you are my son. And I am here to forgive you…" Esther continued.
The sun was about to go up in the horizons, and it was as twilight. Elizabeth walked in the woods, and saw a shadow. This was it. She knew. So without another doubt, she immediately went towards it, and stopped a few paces away. He stood behind a car, as she looked at him.
"I see you are about to flee…" Elizabeth said, walking towards him slowly. "Shall I expect a good bye?" She smirked. But Klaus wasn't amused.
"You still have the White Oak Stake." Klaus said. "And you were about to kill me…"
"You're lucky that Esther saved you." She replied, still smirking. Klaus looked away then back at her again. "Or you would have ended up like Mikael."
"You lied to me."
"And you lied to me either." Elizabeth quickly said. "None of us can be trusted, Nik. You should know that."
"I know that very well…" Klaus said with a smile. "And that is why you're coming with me." Elizabeth immediately frowned, and saw Klaus quickly went towards her. Her eyes widened with surprise. She knew she was now in danger so she immediately sent Damon a message, as she saw the shiny dagger, and Klaus drove it to her chest. She felt the pain as she breathed heavily. The sun was now coming up, but that hint of light immediately became darkness.
His face was the last thing she saw.
And she was unconscious.
