It was getting late, which was your cue to head home. Although Rebekah invited you to stay the night, you denied her invitation because you felt like sleeping in your own bed tonight. It was just one of those nights. You spent the day helping Rebekah prepare for her house party tomorrow which was quite exhausting.
Rebekah and Elijah both offered to give you a ride home, but you chose to walk home since you only lived a couple of blocks away. You did fight back and forth about it because they care for your safety, but they finally budged and let you be.
The weather was just perfect and the streets were silent. Not a person in sight. You had earbuds in playing your favorite songs, humming happily to the lyrics. “See, Rebekah and Elijah had nothing to worry about.” You thought to yourself.
But you thought too soon. You were almost one block away from your house until a stranger stops right in front of you. Being too focused on your phone, trying to pick the next to song to play, you accidentally bumped into the tall man.
“Oops sorry, I wasn’t watching where I was going.” You half smiled, then attempted to walk away, but the man tightly grabs you by the arm. “Wha-what are you doing?! Let go of me!” You yelled, trying to break free of his grip, your earbuds falling out of your ear.
The stranger takes out a gun from his pocket, pointing it at your head. “Give me your phone and your purse.”
“What?” You were frightened by now, making you wish you were a vampire like the Mikaelson’s so that you would have the strength to free yourself from your attacker.
“NOW!” He demanded.
You were ready to hand him your belongings until you heard another man behind you. “Let her free.” You turned around to see that it’s Elijah. Oh, how happy you were to see him. You also wondered how Elijah just happened to know that you were in danger. Could he have been following you this entire time? Who knows. But if so, you are damn well glad he did.
“Or what?” The man cocked the gun, getting it ready to fire at your head. This definitely pissed of Elijah. He cares for you so much that seeing you in any kind of danger is the last thing he wants in life. Elijah’s eyes immediately went red, revealing his veins and fangs.
“What the hell!” This frightened the man, which caused him to let go of you and he immediately shot at Elijah instead of you. It obviously did some damage to him, but your safety is more important to him than his pain, so he tried his best and vampire sped towards your attacker, breaking his head off, leaving him dead on the floor.
Elijah saw how frightened you were from being close to death and comforted you right away by holding your head to his chest, rubbing your head, letting you cry. “There there, Y/N.”
“Thank you, Elijah.” You sniffled, looking up at Elijah.
“Of course.” He let go of you, taking out a handkerchief from his jacket, handing it to you, looking at your with worry in his eyes. “Give me your word that next time, let us give you a ride home.”
“Yeah of course.” You responded, putting your phone and ear buds in your purse.
“Good.” Elijah smiled, putting an arm out for you to hold, which you clunged on to. Then, he walked you home.
