I know, Beks. And I’m sorry. I’m sorry he left again. Oh really, and what’s that?
It’s not your fault, it’s my fault. Everything is my fault, and I wish I could do something to make it all right again. My family has fallen apart, yet again. Of course you are my reason for staying, but also a vampire called Mark — Katherine is his sire.
Stop, I don’t even care. He left me. He left us. It doesn’t matter anymore. I’m just glad you’re home.
I know, but I just— I wanted to find him. He’s my brother, he should be here, not alone in some foreign country. I’m not leaving again, not for a long time, I have a reason to stay.
Am I hallucinating or is my favorite girl finally back home?
I’m back, but I could not kind Niklaus. I tried, I’m sorry, Riley.
I know him better than he knows himself, this won’t be hard.
You make it up to them by not living in the past, by living and working towards who you wish to be. Everyone makes mistakes Rebekah, it is life’s plan for us all. But to remain in one time frame due to regret will do no one good. Katerina is quite fond of you, so you are hardly alone. She even threatened me if I were to bring you any harm.
You are very kind, kinder than anyone I have come across in awhile. You are an incredibly good addition to the people of Mystic Falls, that I assure you. Thank you for your reassurance, sometimes it is all one needs to start feeling positive again. Yes, I consider Katherine one of my friends, she has good intentions even if one does not recognize it at first. She has been nothing but good to me.
Few ever had the privilege of knowing him in those times, so I shall have to take your word on the matter. The only one who can really punish you, is you though. To let regret eat away at your soul in such a way is not the way to go about anything. You are a much stronger than that, Kol will come around I am sure. You two do share a home and siblings fight quite often.
But I have made so many mistakes in my life, how am I ever meant to make things right with the people that I have wronged? I fear that I will be alone forever. My brother is stubborn, like myself, I doubt that he will come around anytime soon.
I am not always the wisest, my desires are known to take advantage of me, but I do believe in a fair world. Niklaus not only angers me, but confuses me as well. He speaks as if he wants family, yet casts his own in coffins like the dead and slaughters others as if it were some sick game. I will never understand how you are of the same blood.
Niklaus was not always like this, he has just strayed and I would be lying if I said that I do not miss the old him, the human version. It seems as if I have no one, as of late. Kol refuses to have a civil conversation with me and my best friend has left town. My mistakes are finally punishing me, I guess I will have to live with these regrets.
Give them freedom, earn their loyalty and if I die? So be it. At least I will have gone down doing something noble and worth dying for.
You are a good person, a better person than my brother. His hybrids would do well by putting their loyalty in you.
I’m sure like most places, I am something Mystic Falls has never seen. And yes, I have. It requires a lot of pain and a lot of time. But in do time they will see it is for the better.
You do realize my brother will kill you after he learns what you have done?
