75 years ago, she left him.

75 years.

But now he's gone.

His body has aged and died and hers has remained flawless.

Forever seventeen.

And he's left everything behind.

Including a werewolf son.

And a video that changes her life forever.

A/N: Caroline/OC (FRIENDSHIP), with a little bit of Caroline/Tyler. Don't own VD! Enjoy!


Prologue

2012

"Tyler, just go!"

"Caroline, I can't leave you!" She stopped in her tracks, holding him closer to her body as they kissed passionately. They heard a dull thud as a wooden bullet hit a tree and Tyler spun, his whole body shaking.

"They're getting closer, come on!" They ran once again, the forest becoming a blur to them as their supernatural statuses dominated over the humans weak run.

"We need to leave town." He said breathlessly, stopping once again. She sighed.

"I have to. Not you. They don't know anything about you."

"I'm not leaving you." He said fiercely. She kissed him, tears falling down her face.

"Tyler, I love you, but I can't let you do this. I can't let you leave everyone you love just for me."

"You're all I love!" He said, gripping her arms. She shook her head.

"No...you have to stay." She made eye contact with him and Tyler found himself in daze, looking at her.

"You have to stay in Mystic Falls, Tyler." She whispered, tears falling down her face, but her voice strong.

Tyler shook his head vigorously.

"NO! I'm not staying!" He yelled, gripping his head. Caroline looked at him, surprised that the compulsion hadn't worked.

"I'm coming with you." He whispered.

"Your mom and my mom are in these woods right now with over a dozen other vampire hunters. It's over, Tyler. They know what I am and they're coming for me. I have to leave. But you, they don't know that you're a werewolf. You're safe. And I want it to stay that way."

"I love you. I'm not going to stay here while you're on the run. No way. I can't do that, I just, I can't and-"

"Shh...Shh..." She whispered softly, hugging him closer to her and kissing him once again. She pulled out the tiny wolfsbane plant in her pocket and put it in his. He started convulsing, gasping for breath as he pulled back from her, his eyes wide. She cried hysterically, her eyes turning black with a hint of red and the veins under her eyes turning into black ink, her canine teeth growing into fangs.

"I love you so much." She whispered. She snarled and bit into his neck, blood flowing into her mouth as she moved back and away from him. He fell to the floor, unable to heal due to the wolfsbane in his pocket.

They heard shouts up ahead and Caroline kissed him once, removed the wolfsbane from Tyler's pocket and ran as fast as she could.

"CAROLINE!" She heard Tyler yell, but it didn't matter.

He was safe.

And that was all that mattered to her.
