Norah looked over at him then frowned and glanced out the window, unsure if it was wise to tell him everything; she wasn't sure if she could trust this memory wiped, possibly brainwashed Elijah. "I...foolishly got into a relationship with a wolf and our secret got out," Norah explained, "You happened to be there when it happened so you took me back to your place to keep me safe from the wolves," Norah said, not bothering to explain further.

"That doesn't make sense. I'd heard of that happening, but you definitely didn't stay with me." He looked over at her briefly, then back out to the road as he followed the other car.

Norah breathed in deeply and closed her eyes, trying to stay calm; it was like his memories had been replaced. "I stayed with you for nearly a week before Johan broke into your apartment and abducted me," Norah said. She looked back at him, tears trying to well up again, "Whatever memories you have, they aren't real. I don't know what they did to you Eli, but it's not real," she said

"Tell me what's real to you, then." His tone was a bit snappy, but he wasn't really angry. Just confused. He didn't know what to think of this girl coming here, acting as though she knew him so well.

(awe, it's like the hunger games :P)


Norah bit her lip hard and looked down at her injured hand, unsure what to tell him. She just wanted him to remember. She wanted her Elijah back. Norah gave him the cliff notes of everything they'd been through, starting from that day at the café and ending that day he left the safehouse. When she was done, Norah frowned and blinked away tears, "I love you Elijah, that's what's real to me," she finally said

(Omg I didn't even think of that!)

Elijah didn't reply right away. He didn't really know how. He knew his shoulder ached and no one would tell him why, and now his heart was aching and he wasn't sure the reason behind that either. "I don't remember any of that," he said softly.

Norah reached out hesitantly and put her injured hand on his arm, “because they’ve done something to your mind,” Norah said gently, “I couldn’t make any of this up,” she said, voice small and shaky as her mind went back to mr Robertson’s men torturing her.

Elijah glanced at her and then shifted his arm away from her touch. "Mr. Peters warned me about this," he said, his tone changing.

Norah choked back a sob And turned her face away from him. “And what did he warn you about?” She asked, her other hand gripping the seat belt tightly. The bears boss had taken her parents from her and now the man she loved. She wasn’t sure who she hated more, mr peters or Jaime’s father.

"You. You're from a family of traitors," he insisted.

Norah shook her head, "My family has been nothing but loyal to the Bears," Norah said shortly, growing angry. Not only had they replaced Elijah's memories, they were turning him against her? "My brother has been a loyal member for years, despite knowing your boss had our parents killed. Should that not count for anything?" she demanded then turned back to him, "Does your boss even know what my parents did to supposedly betray their own?" she inquired.

"Like I would tell you," he rolled his eyes. "Isn't that all you've wanted to know?"

Norah pursed her lips, clutching the seatbelt again, "I've been searching for answered for years, that is true," Norah said, "and you were looking into it. My guess is you found something out that you shouldn't have," she said, "and they've gone and done this to you," Norah said,

"They didn't do anything to me!" He insisted, his grip tightening on the wheel. He took the next exit, leaving Apollo's car to head up further into the mountains.

Norah frowned as he left behind the other car, "yes they did!" she exclaimed but grew quiet as they headed towards the mountains, just as they had weeks ago. "You come out this way when you don't know what else to do. It's the only place you feel like you can breathe," Norah commented.
