Don't Let Go (a Vampire Diaries fanfiction o...
Ever since Adalynn was 8, she's lived with the best family she could have ever imagined being apart of. Her parents, Caroline and Niklaus Mikaelson, were so great to her, it was amazing. As she got older though, she noticed that her parents didn't seem to grow older like her friends parents did. She began to question this, and everytime she asked her parents about it, they laughed and said that they were a lot younger than her friends parents. Adalynn wanted to believe this, but deep down, she knew they were lying.
Ryder has been apart of this family for his whole life. There were no secrets in the family, meaning Ryder knew he was adopted. He struggled with the idea of not being a blood child of his parents, and it starts to take a toll on him, mentally and physically. However, one night he sneaks out of the house and sees something so surreal, that he shakes it off. A week passes and he can't just shake it off. He begins to think that maybe, just maybe, his parents were keeping a big secret from him, from them.
Adalynn and Ryder talk to each other about everything, including their doubt about everything their parents are and possible secrets about their parents. Eventually, the two realize that the reason they don't age is because they're Ryder's worst nightmare; vampires.
