He cupped my cheek in his hand, wiping away a single tear. "Please don't do this," I begged him and his eyes diverted from mine. "I'm sorry, dear Samantha. Try to understand that I'm doing this for your safety." I desperately held onto his sleeve in an attempt to stop him from leaving. "No! Don't you dare leave me Elijah!" His face wore a pained expression as he releases himself from my grip. "It's for the better." Those were the last words he uttered before leaving me in my helpless state. When Samantha "Sam" Gilbert heard about the death of her parents, she was living in New York. She was terrified by the news, and simply couldn't face her family back in Mystic Falls. After a year of avoiding them, she finally decides to move back to her hometown and reunite with them all. She gets thrown into the world of vampires. A world she had tried to cut the ties to for a long time. She soon learns about the chaos that surrounds her little sister, and Elena is kidnapped shortly after Sam's arrival. When she comes for her rescue, she is met by a familiar face of someone she never expected to see again - Elijah Mikaelson, the only man she had ever loved. Will they be able to find love again?
