~ The beginning of season 2! I got this chapter up sooner than I thought (:
~ Before the rest of the Author's note I have to say something I know I've said time and time again over the past two years of writing fanfiction. As much as I am thankful for the reviews this story has gotten... I wish they would be more specific. It's not that hard to tell me what you like... if it's the whole chapter, that's nice but there would have to be something you would want to see more of. Maybe there's something I can change that would make the story more enjoyable. It feels a bit tedious that I have to keep repeating it (especially since I have a little bit on my profile about the types of reviews that are most helpful).
Nikki: Your review was the first one on the chapter that was actually semi-helpful (: There will be some 'girl power' starting in season 2 with Liz... especially with some of the parts I have planned. Right now the main pairing is Liz/Ty... but there are some Liz/Jer scenes. If they somehow get as a couple (I don't know if they will because of the Liz/Ty and Liz/Klaus already in the story) it won't be for a while... I like writing for Liz and Tyler at the moment. (:
~ At the beginning of this chapter I have a summary of the season 1 events from Elizabeth's POV. I think it's something I might to at the first chapter to each season. That means I'll do it for seasons 3 and 4 (when they are under a different story name).
~ Don't forget the links to Elizabeth's outfits are on my profile.
The longest I've stayed in one plays in the last 162 years was the first 17 years of my life. After my brothers and I turned in 1864. The three of us lived in Mystic Falls for that time until my older brother Damon left. I stayed with my twin, Stefan Salvatore. We stayed together through thick and thin, even though there were times we were separated from each other. So when a girl caught my twin's eye there was no question about following him. The girl Stefan said he saw looked identical to Katherine, who was the vampire who turned the three of us. The girl that looked like Katherine was a human named Elena. It didn't take Stefan long to start dating Elena. I was happy for him. He was in a happy relationship with someone who cared about him, even after finding out that we were vampires.
I on the other hand took longer to get into a relationship. By my 162nd birthday I started to date Tyler Lockwood, a descendent of my first boyfriend George Lockwood. When I first met Tyler, I wasn't sure about starting a relationship because there was a vampire from my past that I liked. His name was Klaus. I've only seen him a handful of times since the first time I saw him, but we never spoke a word to each other. I knew that if he actually liked me, he would have searched for me, but he never did. Instead of waiting around forever for something that was never good, I started a relationship with Tyler. It proved to be one of the best choices I made. Although Tyler didn't know about me being a vampire, he loved me and I loved him.
Damon had also returned to Mystic Falls. The three of us were a complete family again, despite what Damon did in the beginning. He tried to get in between Stefan and Elena, but he stopped after finding out Katherine was never in the tomb she made everyone believe she was in. I knew from the beginning she wasn't and have been keeping that secret from my brothers ever since we were turned. They didn't know and the longer we continued to be together, the more I thought about telling them. I wanted to tell Damon first because of how much he cared about Katherine when we were human, but she really only cared about Stefan. I wasn't about to break my brother's heart or my family. It was something I didn't want to tell my brothers, but I knew it had to be done. The morning of Founder's day I told myself that I was going to tell them within a week, no matter what they would say. That was almost 24 hours ago, before Tyler's dad died.
I stayed at the hospital even though I should have gone with Tyler. He needed me, but I knew he also needed time alone with his mom after what happened. I told Tyler that I would stay with Caroline and tell him if she would get better. Matt also needed some comfort since he was Caroline's boyfriend. I wanted to help Caroline, but there was too many eyes. If I would try and heal her... someone would see.
I just sat next to Matt and held his hand in comfort, silently trying to tell him that things were going to be okay.
"You should be with Tyler." Matt said to me.
"I know, but he needs to be with his mom." I said. "He just lost his dad and I can see him tomorrow. Right now, you need a friend." Matt gave me a small smile before we both heard footsteps.
"How is Caroline?" Bonnie asked and I took a deep breath. Matt wasn't one of the people that knew about the supernatural and I wasn't going to bring him into my problem with Bonnie.
"She's not good, Bon." Matt said and I just gave his hand a small squeeze.
"What happened?" Bonnie asked as she sat on the other side of Matt.
"We were driving and Tyler and Liz both heard a noise." I looked at Bonnie knowing that the noise came from the device she didn't unspell.
"A noise?" Bonnie asked Matt, but glanced at me. She knew by my expression that I was blaming her, but thankfully Matt didn't see it.
"They got this migraine or something and Tyler lost control of the car and ..." Matt took a pause because he was still a little shook up "... I thought that Caroline was fine and then ... and then she wasn't so ..." I could tell Bonnie was distraught but Matt must of just thought she was worried about Caroline.
Matt went to his house, but I stayed a the hospital. I tried to avoid Bonnie because I wasn't sure if I could stop myself from causing a scene. After what happened I wanted to go after her, but at the same time I couldn't help but think of what happened if I did. Bonnie was Elena's friend and Elena was my twin's girlfriend. If I went after Bonnie, it would eventually get back to my brother and he would have something to say about it.
"Lizzy." I turned away from Caroline's room to see Damon. "Are you okay?" He asked and I just gave him a small nod.
"Yeah." I said before giving him a hug. He returned it, which I was glad for. "But Tyler is a bit shaken. His dad died."
"I know." Damon said. "I was there."
"No, it was one of the tomb vampires. I'm a bit insulted that you think I did." I rolled my eyes, but I was still hugging him so he didn't see it.
"Do you blame me?" I asked after pulling away from the hug. "You're not exactly a saint." He just gave me a smirk before seeing Caroline's mom.
"I'm gonna go talk to her." I gave my brother a small nod, letting him know it was okay before he went to talk to Caroline's mom.
After a few minutes, I noticed that Elena arrived and I started to walk towards her only to notice Bonnie.
"Bonnie. How's Caroline?" Elena asked Bonnie, but I stayed out of view because I didn't like Bonnie at the moment.
"She's weak. They don't know if she's going to make it." She quietly said to Elena. I looked back at Caroline's room, wanting to heal her because she was my friend even if we didn't hang out too often. I looked back at Bonnie and Elena to see them hugging.
"Is there something that you can do? Like a spell or something?" Elena asked and I could tell Damon stood behind me.
"She doesn't know how..." Damon and I said at the same time, which made Elena and Bonnie look towards us "...do you?" Damon asked by himself.
"No, I don't." Bonnie admitted when we stepped towards them
"No, you don't because it took Emily years to learn a spell like that." I said to Bonnie with some anger towards her, even though I tried to hide it.
"Well, I can take down a vampire, that spell was easy to learn." Bonnie said and I rolled my eyes.
"And I can take down a witch." I said, which Bonnie stare into my eyes. It was clear that we didn't like each other and wouldn't hesitate if the other tried to attack.
"I can give Caroline some blood." Damon said, which made me take a deep breath to control myself before I looked at Elena.
"No, no way." Elena said and I could understand why she would be saying that.
"No, just enough to heal her." My brother said to Elena. "She will be safe in the hospital and it will be out of her system in a day, she will be better Elena." I agreed with Damon because I was thinking about it since she collapsed after the crash.
"It's too risky, I can't agree to that." Elena said as she shook her head.
"Do it." Bonnie said, which made me slightly shocked even though I was still mad at her. "This is Caroline. We can't let her die." Bonnie looked at both me and my brother. "Do it."
"If I do this, you and me, call a truce?" Damon asked Bonnie as he pointed between each of them.
"No. But you'll do it anyway. For Elena." I squinted my eyes at Bonnie, which she saw before she walked away.
Damon looked at me and I could tell he wanted to talk to Elena alone, so I stepped away. I could still listen in if I wanted to. I couldn't help but think about Tyler and how I would eventually explain things to him. 'How could I even explain things?' I asked myself as I leaned against the wall and closed my eyes. Tyler didn't even know about his werewolf gene, unless he wasn't saying anything. 'Katherine is right, I do worry too much' I thought before feeling Damon standing near me. I opened my eyes and just gave him a small smile, trying to tell him not to worry. He didn't seem like he believed me, but he didn't say anything about it. Out the corner of my eye, I could see Elena talking with Jenna. Elena looked confused and even though I didn't know what they were talking about, I had a feeling I could figure it out.
"You got to be kidding me." My brother said out loud which made me know he listened in on their conversation. He looked at Elena and Jenna, who were looking at him with confusion. Damon looked back at me before he started to walk away. I looked back at Elana before following my brother.
After finishing her conversation with Jenna, Elena joined us and we went to her house. Elena told me that Stefan was there and the three of us wanted to tell him about Katherine being back. As Elena opened the door to her house, I hoped that Katherine didn't say anything about me knowing she was never in the tomb. I brought myself out of my thoughts when I saw Stefan stand up and look towards us.
"Stefan?" Elena and I asked at the same time.
"Elena." Stefan said with relief which made me look around the room.
"What happened?" Elena asked before Stefan and I looked at each other. I knew by his face what happened.
"Katherine happened." Damon and I said at the same time before I sped next to my twin.
"Are you okay?" I asked as he snapped his wrist into place.
"Yeah, I'll be fine." He said as he gave a small nod.
"I'm going to check on Jeremy." Elena said before she almost ran up the stairs. I couldn't help but look back at Damon, who almost looked like he was in shock that Katherine came back.
My brothers and I went into Elena's kitchen. While they thought of Katherine's return, I got myself a cup of water.
"Did she say what she wanted?" Damon asked as Stefan paced back and forth.
"No." Stefan said to Damon.
"Woman certainly knows how to make an entrance." Damon said after a few seconds and I turned to face them. I tried to look as surprised as they were because I didn't want them mad at me for keeping it a secret. I've only kept it a secret because I promised her when I turned even though I knew that when and if my brothers found out they would be mad. It wasn't something I thought about but I couldn't help it since she was back in town.
"She said she fooled one of us, at least." Stefan said and I looked at him as I took a sip from my glass. "What does that mean?" He asked when we both looked at Damon.
"She pretended to be Elena to when I showed up earlier tonight." Damon said which made me start to think of the things that could have happened.
"I told Jeremy." Elena said whens she joined us in the kitchen before anyone could say anything. "I can't lie to him anymore."
"Is he alright?" I asked Elena about Jeremy and she just nodded her head.
"Are you alright?" Stefan asked Elena as he walked towards her.
"No, I'm not alright." Elena said as Stefan put his arm around her for comfort. "I thought that with all the tomb vampires gone things would get better."
"I know. We all did." Stefan gently said to her.
"Katherine was in this house, that means she's been invited in, what are we gonna do?"
"Move." Damon said to Elena like it was the simplest thing in the world.
"Very helpful, thank you."
"If Katherine wanted you dead, you'd be dead already." I said to Elena as she sat down at the kitchen table. "There's nothing to worry about since you're alive and human." The three of them looked at me for a moment. I looked from Elena to Stefan who was looking at me because of what I said. He knew more than Damon about how close as friends I was to Katherine before we were vampires.
"Clearly she has other plans." Damon said, clearly adding to what I said.
"Right and we need to find out what those other plans are and not provoke her in the process." Stefan said as he glanced at me but then looked at Damon. "What happened tonight when you thought she was Elena?"
"To risk another frown line encroaching on a very crowded forehead. We... kissed." I almost spit out the water that I had in my mouth.
"And you thought it was her?" I asked at the same time Elena asked "And you thought it was me?"
"What do you mean you kissed?" Stefan asked, immediately protective of Elena.
"Well, you know, when two lips pucker and they go." My brothers sped towards each other, which made me ready to stop them if they started to fight. "Don't be obvious, Stefan." Damon said and Stefan started to move towards him. I quickly put down my glass and sped between them, not wanting them to fight.
"Don't you dare." I said to Stefan before looking at Damon. "Don't fight."
"Stefan he kissed Katherine, not me." Elena said as she stood up but stayed behind me. "I wouldn't do that. We don't have time for this guys."
"Later." Stefan said as he looked at Damon.
"There's going to be no later." I said almost glaring at my twin. "I'm not letting you two fight over what Katherine did." Stefan looked at me for a minute and seemed to simmer down a little, which made me look at Damon. "Alright?" I asked him, which made him look at me. His calmed down a little, but I knew he wasn't going to let it go.
"John must know something." Elena said to my brothers while I stayed between them. "There has to be a reason why Katherine tried to kill him."
"She's Katherine. She loves to play games and you're fooling yourself if you think you're going to find out what she's been up to before she wants you to know." Damon said as he stepped away.
"No, actually Elena's right, John could know something through Isobel." Stefan looked at Elena and I calmed down because I felt my brothers weren't going after each other at the moment. "Your mother, she was in touch with Katherine so maybe we can go to the hospital and get him to talk."
"I've got a better idea." Damon said, which made us look at him.
"What's that?" Elena asked Damon from behind me.
"I'm just gonna ignore the bitch. See you."
"Is that smart?" I asked Damon, knowing what Katherine is capable of.
"If Katherine thinks she's been ignored it will lure her out, she'll make a move." Damon said as he leaned against his back against the wall.
"Yeah? And then what?" Stefan asked from behind me.
"Stake her, rip her head off, something poetic. We'll see." Damon said before leaving me with Stefan and Elena. 'He'll be okay' I thought, hoping that it was true. I let out a sight before looking at my twin.
"I'm gonna go home, make sure Damon doesn't break anything." I said to him before glancing to Elena and back to him. "Maybe you should stay here... incase Katherine comes back." He just gave me a small nod, like he was going to stay anyway. "Love you bro." I hugged Stefan and he hugged me back before I left him with Elena.
After I left Elena's I went straight to my room. I didn't really get a good night's sleep because I was worried about Tyler and I didn't know what Katherine was up to. There was a part of me that thought Katherine wouldn't do anything to harm Tyler, but that didn't stop me from worrying. I eventually fell asleep, but when I woke up I was still tired. I called Tyler and told him I would be over after I ate breakfast and took a shower.
The morning felt slow until I got to Tyler's for his dad's wake, which got organized pretty quick. I walked up the front steps to see Tyler standing at the door.
"Hey." I softly said as I pulled him in for a hug.
"Thank you for being here." Tyler said after he pulled away.
"You're my boyfriend Ty." I said with a small smile. "Of course I'll be here." I gave him a kiss and joined his side as more people came.
I slipped my arm through Tyler's arm just as a jeep pulled up in front of his house. Tyler and I both watched as a man stepped out and I sensed that Ty knew him.
"So the black sheep returns." Tyler said as the mad walked up the steps towards us.
"Tyler?" He asked, which made me realize that they personally knew each other.
"Yeah." Tyler said, not taking his arm from mine.
"What happened to you? In my mind you're twelve years old."
"Then that's two years older than the last time you saw me, Uncle Mason." Tyler took his arm from mine and hugged Mason.
"Good to see you again." Mason said before they broke the hug.
"It's good to see you too." I faked a cough, which caught their attention. "This is my girlfriend Elizabeth." Mason held out his hand and I decided to be polite and shake his hand.
"Hi." I said with a small smile because if he also had the werewolf gene, it would pay off to be nice to him.
"Come on inside." Tyler said to Mason. Tyler grabbed my hand and I ended up following them in.
After Tyler brought Mason to his mom, the two of us went back outside. Tyler and I didn't talk to each other that much, but I knew it meant a lot to him that I was there for him. Out the corner of my I saw Elena walking towards us. When I completely looked at her I could realize that it wasn't Elena but Katherine. Tyler stepped in front of her, stopping her from walking in the house.
"Hey Elena, thanks for coming." Tyler held Katherine's hand, showing his appreciation. "Come on in." Katherine looked at me and I just gave her a small smile, pretending that she was Elena. Tyler stepped back to my side before Katherine walked into Tyler's house.
"Hey, I'm gonna go talk to Elena." I said to Tyler because he didn't know about the vampire world so I wasn't going to tell him it was Katherine. Tyler just gave me a nod and I kissed him on the cheek before going into his house.
I found Katherine outside looking at the pond that was in Tyler's backyard. She looked at me but looked back at the pond as I leaned against the pillar near her.
"I'm a bit hurt." I said as I looked out at the pond. "You saw my brothers but not me."
"You know you're my favorite Salvatore Lizzy." Katherine said and I fought against rolling my eyes.
"Only my brothers and Tyler can call me Lizzy Kat." I looked towards her, but stayed leaning against the pillar. "You should put John on a tighter leash." Kat let out a small chuckle. "The same goes for Isobel."
"They do what they want." Kat said before looking at me. "Although I did tell them to keep you out of danger."
"That sure went well." I said with sarcasm, which she noticed. She was about to say something else, but I noticed Bonnie walking towards us. I barely looked at her as I walked away to find Tyler.
I walked through the hallway and saw Tyler out of the corner of my eye. I walked into the room and sat next to him. He gave me a small smile before we both leaned in for a kiss.
"I love you." I said when he pulled away, feeling like I needed to tell him. He just smiled before we started to kiss again.
"Sorry," Tyler and I broke apart at the sound of Jeremy's voice. We both looked at him and I felt that Tyler was annoyed ", I was just looking for the..."
"Bathroom is down the hall." Tyler said and I think he wanted Jeremy to leave so we could continue kissing.
"Hey look...I'm sorry about your dad." Jeremy said as he stepped into the room.
"Today has been a big day of sorries from people who really don't give a crap." Tyler said. I put my hand on his knee and gave him a comforting squeeze because he knew I cared.
"I remember when my dad died." Jeremy said, which made me look at him. "I had a house full of strangers telling me what a great guy he was." A part of me wished I knew how they felt because I never had people telling me if my dad was a great guy. Everyone thought me and my brothers were dead at the time. I remembered sneaking from away from my brothers and hid in the shadows when they buried my dad. "Anyway, I know how hard all this is." Jeremy said, which brought me out of my thoughts of the past.
"The difference is in your case it was true. My dad was a dick." I didn't say anything but I sort of thought of his father like that.
"Yeah, yeah he was." Jeremy said, which made me smirk for some reason.
"I found this in his desk." Tyler showed a flask that was in his hand. "He won't mind, he's dead."
"In that case, your girlfriend gets a sip first." I said before taking the flask from Tyler and taking a sip from it.
"Yeah, you know what, sure. Why not?" I got up and handed the flask to Jeremy. He was about to drink from it before Mason walked in.
"Hey," Jeremy moved straighter at the sound of Mason's voice ", what's going on in here Tyler?"
"Nothing, nothing." Tyler said, probably hoping that Mason would go away.
"You have somewhere else to be?" He asked Jeremy, who gave him the flask and walked out of the room.
"I'm gonna go look for my brothers." I said before giving Tyler a kiss. "I'll come back tonight." I whispered to Tyler and he nodded his head, obviously knowing what I meant.
"Bye." Tyler said as I walked out of the room.
I couldn't find my brothers but eventually I got a text from Elena and went to where she was.
"Cover up, Fabio." Damon said to Stefan as I walked behind him. "We got a crazy ex on the loose." I rolled my eyes at Damon which he didn't see because he looked at Elena. "You better watch out, looks like Katherine is trying to steal your guy."
"That's not what's happening." Stefan and I said at the same time, even though I knew Katherine still loved my twin.
"Isn't it?" Damon asked and I let out a sigh. "I mean it's only fair since I went after your girl."
"I'm gonna go check on Jenna and Jeremy." Elena said before looking at Stefan. "Let me know when you guys are done."
"So what's it gonna be huh?" Damon asked Stefan after Elena was out of earshot. "Fight to the death?" He pretended to punch Stefan and I found myself mentally smiling because I knew Damon was joking. "Go ahead, make your threats, stake your claim."
"I'm not gonna fight you." Stefan said as he sat on the bench.
"Why?! I'd fight me." Damon said, which made me shake my head.
"And you'd lose." I said to him, not holding back a smile. Damon gave me an entertained smile before giving me a noogie. "Cool it with the noogies already." I quickly got out of his grip.
"Katherine is gonna try to play us against each other, you do know that right?" Stefan said to Damon, which ruined the good mood.
"Brother, don't you worry, our bond is unbreakable." Damon said before Stefan stood in front of us.
"We need to stay united against her, the three of us." Stefan glanced at me before looking back at Damon. "So yes, as much as I would like to kill you, I'm not gonna fight you." I rolled my eyes as Stefan turned away from us.
"I kissed Elena."
"Because you feel something for her," Stefan said to Damon ", because you actually care and I'm not gonna let Katherine come in here and destroy that part of you that is finally, after all of this time, willing to feel something. She will try to break you, she will try to break us and how we respond to that will define us. It's our choice. So no, I'm not gonna fight you." Stefan looked at me and I just gave him a small smile before he walked away.
"No matter what you or Stefan end up doing, I'll always love and defend you two." I said to Damon. "Stefy feels the same way no matter what he says." I gave him a pat on the back before reluctantly walking away.
The rest of the day went faster than the morning. Tyler was okay, as much as he could be for his dad dying. When I got home I changed from the green dress I had been wearing into a pink tank top and a pair of jean capris I didn't wear that often. Most of the time I drew, which surprised me with what was going on.
After a while, I went to get myself a blood bag from the basement and on the way up I saw Katherine sitting on the couch.
"What are you doing here?" I asked before I started to sip from the blood bag.
"You said you wanted me to visit you." Katherine said to me.
"No, I didn't." I said. "I said I was hurt that you visited my brothers and not me, that didn't mean you had to come here to visit me. Not to mention that was before you stabbed my twin."
"I was angry." Kat said and I rolled my eyes.
"Either way, you still stabbed him."
"Have you told them?" She asked as I began to walk towards the stairs. "You haven't." I knew what she was talking about, which made me go into defence mode. "I wonder what will happen when they find out."
"You're not going to tell them." I said as I turned around, wondering how the conversation got to this point.
"Who's stopping me?" I sped towards Kat and she stood from the couch. "We both know you're not stronger than me."
"I'm not letting anything come between me and my brothers."
"I've always admired that about you Lizzy. You'd do anything for your brothers."
"Don't call me Lizzy Kat. Not after what happened last night."
"You can't stop me Lizzy." She said with a smirk before we both noticed Damon walking into the room.
"What's she doing here?" He asked me about Katherine.
"Don't ask me." I said to him as I glanced at Katherine. She was smirking at me and I knew what she was thinking. "I'm leaving anyway. I promised Tyler." I sped out and finished my blood bag outside before driving to Tyler's house.
The lights were off at Tyler's house so I snuck in and went for Tyler's room. When I got to his room, I noticed he was laying on his bed but he wasn't sleeping.
"Hey." I whispered as I slid into his bed. I gave him a kiss on the cheek, which made him turn onto his side to face me.
"I love you Lizzy." He said before kissing me. I couldn't help but smile as I cuddled closer to him.
"I love you to Ty." I said with a smile as he wrapped his arm around me to hold me closer. Tyler and I didn't do much except for talk until we both fell asleep in each other's arms.
~ What did you think of the first chapter of season 2? What do you think is going to happen in the rest of season 2? What about ideas you have?
~ I wanted to have a fight between Kat and Liz even though they are friends, but it just ended with a verbal confrontation instead. I will try to make fights happen in the story... but we will see.
~ I have two ideas for Bad Moon Rising. Either Liz can stay with Tyler when he throws the party or she goes to Duke with 'Lena and Damon. Liz will be spending time with Tyler in Memory Lane no matter what happens in Bad Moon Rising.
~ I hope you can check out my other stories, especially 'Out Of Place' because it's in need of reviews. I also have a sequel to one of my stories posted. It's the sequel to 'The Other Hybrid' and it's called 'Love Changes Things'. It's along season 4 and it's Klaus/OC/Kol with the current possibility of going along The Originals as well (:
~ Please leave more specific reviews. They are more helpful than the generic 'Love it, update soon', reviews. They don't tell me much and don't help me with future chapters.
R&R 'till the next update
