"Julia? May I speak with you for a moment?" Barnabas asked, chasing after her when lunch was over. She turned around, taking a sip of bourbon and looking annoyed.

"What do you want?" She said in an exasperated tone.

"I wanted to ask, is everything alright? I haven't seen you drink this much in a while."

"That's none of your business, Barnabas." She snapped, twirling on her heels and storming off.

"Julia, I'm concerned. What happened with Charlie?" He called, running after her.

"I don't want to talk about it." Although her back was still to him, he could hear her voice break slightly. "Please, leave me alone."

"Not until you tell me what's wrong."

"He told me that he loved me, but I don't love him. So we broke up." She blurted out, then she turned so her back was to the vampire. "I love someone else."

Someone Else? Barnabas thought. Who else could she possibly be in love with? Was it Roger? What did she see in that buffoon? She was so much better than him. Oh, Julia…

He shook his head, realizing that she was running down the hall now, heels clicking and hair blowing behind her.

"Julia, wait!" He shouted, but she didn't turn around. "I'm sure Roger will be thrilled to go out with you." This made her turn around.

"What the hell are you talking about?" She demanded, stalking back towards him.

"Roger, you love Roger, don't you?"

"Roger! Of course I don't love Roger! What could ever make you think that?"

"You said that you loved someone else. If it's not Roger, then who is it?"

She stared at him for a few moments before almost laughing. "Barnabas, you are such an idiot."

"I still don't understand…"

"You, Barnabas! I love you!" Her eyes widened as the words came tumbling out of her mouth, before she could stop them.

"You…you what?"

"I'm sorry Barnabas, I can't suffer like this anymore."

"Julia, what are you talking about? Please, tell me what's wrong."

"I don't want to talk anymore. I'm done talking to you."


Julia threw her clothes into her suitcase, shoving in as many things as she can before taking the second suitcase from off the top shelf of her closet. She took another gulp of her bourbon before throwing the rest of her belongings into the suitcase.

It was early in the morning, and she knew that only Elizabeth would be up now. Quickly gathering her suitcases she shut off the lights in her room and walked out, locking the door behind her.


"Elizabeth?" Julia called, knocking of the door of Elizabeth's office, "Can I talk to you?"

"Of course. Come in." Julia opened the door, lugging her suitcases in behind her. "What's going on?" She asked, as soon as she saw the bags.

"I'm sorry, Elizabeth. I can't live here anymore. I've decided to move a little whiles away, and David can come for his sessions every once a week."

"But why do you need to leave? I thought you were happy here."

"Please, Elizabeth. I need to leave."

"You've become part of the family now. There must be something bothering you."

"Thank you Elizabeth. I'll see you soon for David's next session."


Footsteps were coming down the hall and Barnabas's head snapped towards the door. He was flooded with disappointment when Carolyn walked through the door instead of Julia. He hadn't seen her since last night, and it was starting to worry him. It was now lunch time, even if she had been drinking last night, she was usually up by this hour.

"Elizabeth, have you seen Julia?"

"She didn't tell you?" Elizabeth raised an eyebrow.

"Tell me what?"

"She left."

"What?" He jumped up from his chair. "What do you mean she left?"

"Dr. Hoffman decided to move out of the house. She's going to be staying in the next town over until she finds a more permanent place to stay."

"Why did she leave?"

"She didn't really explain why she wanted to leave. She just said that she needed to go."

"I need to go find her." He glanced at Victoria, "I'm sorry."

She gave him a weak

smile. "Barnabas, I get it. You love her, so go."


"Julia?" Barnabas cried, running around the train station looking for the psychiatrist. His eyes darted around wildly, praying that her train hadn't left yet. Suddenly, out of the corner of his eye, he noticed a flash or orange hair. "Julia?"

The woman with the orange hair turned, "Barnabas?"

"Julia!" He ran towards her, wrapping her in his arms and planting a firm kiss on her lips. "Please, don't go. I love you."

Her eyes shone as she looked up at him, "Y-You do?"

"Yes, I do." He smiled down at her, kissing her again.

Julia's eyes snapped open, she was sitting on the bench at the train station, still waiting for her train. She sighed, burring her face into her hands, feeling her cheeks flush a light pink. Why was she dreaming about Barnabas like that? Why was her life so complicated now a days? As soon as she was in the new town, she was going to get a nice big bottle of wine, and drink it all.

"Julia?" A voice called, sounding a little distant. She froze for a moment, then shook away her thoughts. It must have been her imagination. "Julia?" The voice came again. This time she looked up, and glanced around.

The crowed several feet away from her was beginning to part and a man was running, pushing past all the annoyed people trying to get on the train.

"Oh my god…" She whispered. It was Barnabas running through the crowd.
