It's been years since Ruby has cared for someone. Anyone.
But one event changes everything.
She has been captured by The Augustine Society as a lab rat, just to be tortured everyday. But in the cell she finds something she had lost hope of finding.
A family. Love.
Enzo and Ruby are both marked with pain, living their life by a promise they both know they can't possibly keep. What they don't know is that their secrets and their promises will bring them closer and maybe even bring them happiness.
Enzo and Damon become Ruby's family, the people who keep her from going crazy, from turning her humanity off.
They need to find their way out of there, but as Ruby feared it is not as easy as it might sound.
I don't own the Vampire Diaries, those rights belong to L.J Smith and the CW. The beginning of the story is set in 1950 just before Damon becomes an Augustine Vampire. I might change some things in the story so it will be more fitting.
