It had been a whole week since the Mikaelson siblings parted ways, forever. However, to Freya it felt like an eternity since she said goodbye to her family. The family that it had taken her so long to find.
Since her siblings left town, Freya had been working nonstop to try to find a solution to their problem. Some nights she didn’t even leave the bell tower. In fact, if it weren’t for Keelin coming to drag her home most nights, she probably wouldn’t have left the bell tower at all. There wasn’t time to waste. A week was already too long that their family was apart
Freya sighed as she heard the familiar voice call her name. There was no way it could already be late enough that Keelin would feel the need to drag her home.
Freya looked to her phone for the time. 8’oclock? It’s still early.
“Have you been here all day?” Keelin asked as she put her arms around her girlfriend.
“Most of it,” Freya shrugged.
“And did you remember to eat anything today? Maybe drink some water? You know things that a human such as yourself needs to do to survive?”
“Keelin…” Freya sighed.
“Freya,” Keelin responded sternly. “Two days ago you nearly passed out from dehydration. You need to take it easy.”
“I need to find a way to save my family.”
“Honey, your family isn’t in dire danger. They’re all alive and fine. Which is a lot more than I’ll be able to say for you soon.”
“Keelin, I’m fine. I promise.”
“No, you’re not fine. Freya, you’re going to find a way to bring everyone back together, but you can’t kill yourself in the process.”
Freya sighed in defeat. Keelin was right. If she didn’t take it easy she might die of exhaustion before she came even close to finding a solution. “Okay, you’re right.”
“As usual,” Keelin responded jokingly, bringing a huge smile to her girlfriend’s face. There it was. The smile that she’d been missing all week. It was becoming harder and harder to bring a smile to Freya’s face.
“You’re off early today,” Freya commented.
“I know,” Keelin responded. “I wanted to make sure you got a proper meal today. I’m taking you to dinner Miss Mikaelson.”
“I really appreciate that, but I should probably…” Freya quickly stopped talking when she saw the look appearing on her girlfriend’s face. One thing was for sure, Keelin definitely had a look. Freya was becoming quite familiar with said look. The wolf definitely had a feisty side to her. Freya smiled sheepishly as she responded, “I should probably just do what you say.”
“Probably,” Keelin agreed as she put her arm around her girlfriend.
3 Hours Later…
Freya and Keelin had already had dinner together. Now they were walking home together, side by side. Freya hadn’t said a word since they left the restaurant.
“You’re awfully quiet tonight,” Keelin commented.
“Sorry, I just have a lot on my mind.”
“You know, there’s nothing stopping you from going to visit your siblings. I know you can’t see them all at the same time, but maybe you can go see Rebekah in New York.”
Freya looked up at Keelin and smiled. “It’s only been a week. Besides, there is something stopping me. Or rather someone. You.”
“I’ll still be here when you get back,” Keelin assured Freya.
“As much as it pains me to be away from my siblings, it’d pain me even more to have to be away from you right now. No pressure, but you’re the only thing in my life keeping me sane right now.”
“Barely sane,” Keelin joked.
“Ha ha, you’re just full of jokes tonight aren’t you?”
“I try. Anything to see that amazing smile on your face.”
Freya smiled as both women kept walking.
“So, I was thinking, about your brother, Finn.”
“What about him?”
“Well, you said you kept him in that pendant for a while. The one you used to hold Elijah.”
“Right, which is shattered now. Why?”
“Well, why can’t you try and create another pendant or something that could hold the Hollow’s spirit forever?”
“Vincent said the book was the only thing strong enough to hold her spirit.”
“But, what if he’s wrong? I mean we thought Marcel was unkillable, but we managed to create a weapon powerful enough to kill him. What if we can create something strong enough to hold the Hollow?”
“Well, look at you talking about magic. I would have thought you were the witch.”
“It’s an acquired affliction since I started dating a certain Viking witch,” Keelin smiled.
“It’s a good idea. Great actually! I kind of want to go to the bell tower right now and start researching ways to make it work.”
Keelin quickly shot her classic look at Freya.
“But, I’m not,” Freya quickly surrendered, putting her hands up in the air in front of her. “I’m going to wait until tomorrow morning.”
“Thank you!” Keelin responded. “I was thinking we could go get a drink at Rousseau’s before we head home.”
“Really?” Freya responded with a sly smile. “Because I was thinking that we should walk a little faster so that I could get you home and into bed as quickly as possible.”
“I think I might like your idea a lot better, Miss Mikaelson.”
