Disclaimer: I don't own the Vampire Diaries or Klaus -.-
Previously: "Awwwwwww!" I exclaimed, snuggling closer. "That is totally okay with me." And we stayed just like that through the night.
Chapter 20 - Caroline
Klaus' POV (Yay! Hotness!)
I stepped out into the morning sun, gentle winds blowing around me and the slight ruffle of leaves filling my ears. Elena was sleeping silently, snoring a little bit too. Which gave Elijah and I time to figure the demon matter out.
I took a sip of the coffee Elijah had picked up for me from STARBUCKS, "What matters is that we keep Elena safe…at least that's my priority."
"I know, Klaus. I love Elena too. But it's time I tell you something…" Elijah said quietly, fiddling with his ring finger. "I was researching demons last night…and well, one of our friends is one."
My head spun, "Well? Which one? Who?"
Elijah looked from side to side like we were being watched, "Dirk." He hissed.
"No…you're lying. I've known Dirk for a long time…" I drawled, feeling my cheeks grow hot. There was no way in hell my best friend was against me. We had been together for so long. Ripper and ripper…
"It's true," Elijah sighed heavily, "Dirk is one of them. He let us stay with him because Lilly had contacted him."
I shook my head, "No."
"Yes, Klaus. Your best friend lied to you all these years…which I never have," Elijah breathed sharply, eyes boring into mine.
"Remind yourself that you tried to kill me," I hissed, throwing the coffee into the black garbage bin.
"Remind yourself that I saved you," Elijah sneered, a look of confusion forming in his eyes. "Multiple times."
"Wait," I whispered, eyes growing wide. "Isobel…?"
"Is a vampire. I had her flown to Mystic Falls as soon as I found out. She said she knew but Dirk had told her it was nothing serious," Elijah recalled, biting into a vanilla glazed donut.
"Oh…this really isn't my week," I frowned as I stood up. "Listen, I know you and I are going to have to start taking care of these matters…but what about Elena? Will she be able to come with us?"
"Elena's only human, Klaus. She won't be anything but your lover and distraction," Elijah muttered as he stood and took a place beside me and we started to walk.
"Would we leave her here then?" I questioned. As much as I loved Elena, it wasn't safe to be with Elijah and me.
Elijah weighed the options, "No, it's still too dangerous. Dirk could come for her."
"Would we take her home to Mystic Falls? That was my plan. Just leave her in the day and come back at night." I told him, trying to convince him. But there was probably still another reason of why we couldn't let her be alone. "We could always ask Damon for his help."
"Hmm, right after we killed his baby brother? That's a sure fire plan," Elijah snickered. I shook my head.
"With Caroline and Bonnie?" Elijah suggested. I had forgotten that Elijah had almost kissed Elena's best friend.
"That would work. Okay, let's return and get everything ready." Elijah and I walked together, not another word just the empty sounds of sirens and rain that had started.
Elijah walked into his room and grabbed an old black leather suitcase for himself. I took out my new Adidas sport bag and grabbed one I had for Elena.
When we walked in my room and woke her, she put her hands up in surrender.
"I haven't done anything and you're making me leave? God, Elijah…" I chuckled loudly and Elijah just shook his head disapprovingly. I sat beside her and brought her head to my chest.
"Elijah and I have something to tell you," I started, rubbing circles on her back. I felt her nodding against me. "With the whole demons thing…it would probably be safer for you to stay with Caroline and Bonnie while we did our job."
"But-" her lip quivered and I saw tears building. I shooed Elijah out and she brought her lips to mine, "That means that you and I are apart."
"Only for the day, my lovely. I'll come back every evening." I promised her, linking our hands and fingers. She touched my lips with her finger and smiled warmly.
"Promise?" she asked, her eyes filled with either belief or disbelief. Her emotions were always hard to figure out.
"I promise you, love." I said, kissing her forehead. "I'm going to miss our days together."
She frowned and I saw her trying not to let her tears come out, "But when I go back…what will everyone say? Does anyone know about us?"
"Other than your dead ex boyfriend? Nope," I cheered, reaching for the robe hanging on the edge of our bed. "Get dressed, it's time for packing."
"What about school?" she asked, slipping out from the black silk covers and wrapping herself in a robe.
"It's been cancelled by Damon's compulsion. He just thinks that Stefan disappeared…he doesn't know he's dead." I explained, popping on my black jacket. Elena came up behind me and wrapped her slender arms around my waist.
"You're a bitch sometimes, Klaus." She smiled, kissing my nose after reaching the peak of her tippy toes.
"Ah, I know. But I take after my brother," I smirked, jerking a thumb at the wall that connected to Elijah's room. He must really hate us at night…
"Are we gonna have a funeral for Stefan?" Elena asked, her voice on the edge of cracking. I turned her face to me and saw her eyes all red.
"Have you been crying?"
She nodded slowly, one single shimmering tear rolling down her face. I wiped it with my thumb and sat in the armchair.
"Why? Have I upset you?" I asked her, wonder filling my thoughts. Have I done something so bad to make her cry?
"It's just…Stefan…" she mumbled, fiddling with her fingers just like Elijah did.
I kissed her hair and started to tie up my boots, "What he did to you was unforgivable, my love."
"But did it really mean death?" she said, her voice rising with every word, "Did Elijah really have to kill him?"
"He was going to kill me!" I struck back, "doesn't that mean a thing to you?"
"Of course it means something to me!" She shouted, "But I have feelings for everyone, Klaus!"
"Elena, I know that! You're a very loving, caring girl. But Stefan was going to kill me…as well as Elijah! No one would want that! Hell, I don't want that!" I screeched. I didn't want us fighting. I wanted us to work.
Elena spat, "Stop it! What will Damon think of me?"
"Is that all you care about? What other people think of you? You know what I think of you?" I questioned her, wanting to tell her every single thing I thought she was.
"What? That I'm a bitch? Yeah, I get that," she muttered sarcastically. I bit my lip.
"No, I think that you're confident, loving, nurturing, caring, sexy, sweet…I think you're everything, Elena. You are my everything."
Elena's face softened again, "I hate it when you do that."
Cockily, my dimples came out, "I've been known for it."
She walked towards me and hugged me, "We can't be like this. Especially when you're gone and we can't work it out. You and I-"
"Should make love? I agree," I winked sexily, licking over my lips. She hit my arm playfully and fell into my arms. I lied down and let her fall on top of me. "I wasn't kidding, you know."
She started to giggle, "I know. But I have to pack."
"Packing can wait, I cannot." I said, bringing our lips together in a fiery passion. I felt her tongue play along my lips until I granted her entrance.
"Ugh," she moaned, "Stop it. There's always time for play!"
"I don't want to stop," I breathed rather mischievously. I saw her smirk as she played with the buttons along my shirt.
"I don't either, trust me. But life doesn't always favor us," she smiled.
"Bloody hell, I love the way you talk. You sound more sophisticated than me!" I exclaimed, watching her as she retreated from me and continued to put clothes on, "Worst part of the morning is getting dressed."
"Klaus!" she hissed, throwing a black and red striped pillow at me.
"What? You know I'm right," I eyed her, watching her slip off the short shorts and pulling on a pair of jeans, "Damn, girl."
She started laughing louder, "S-stop it!"
I jumped from the bed and pulled her from the waist, looking her up and down. "Bra and jeans…I like it. A lot."
She couldn't control her laughter as she let me take her jeans off. Then she realized what was happening and bit my arm.
"Ow!" I sarcastically yelled, my voice heavy with my accent, "That was mean."
"I said stop."
"I said go," I licked my lips again and kissed her arms and stomach. I saw her throw her head back in pleasure and that was my fuel. If I could just get her to be in heaven…then she would continue with me.
"No…" she drawled as my tongue met with hers. She opened her lips more, letting me explore. She tried to push me again but I was stone. I stayed right there; not a movement other than my tongue.
"Hmm," I pulled away to look at her and I knew I had her where I wanted her. Her eyes were rolling back, her hair was messy again and her clothes were basically falling off on their own.
"Stop!" She yelled suddenly.
"What's wrong?" I asked, wondering if I had hurt her. She jumped from me with a look of fear on her face.
"What?" I questioned, grabbing her hand. She didn't pull away…that was a good sign…right?
"I got a text," she breathed, her chest falling up and down.
"Oh, well the world must be stopping now!" I shouted sarcastically, falling on my back. Elena gasped and tugged at my arm.
"We have to go. Now." She urged me, trying to assemble clothes for herself. I couldn't believe it! I had left myself with clothes on! Dammit!
"What's wrong, love?" I asked, putting her jeans on her. She smiled as I kissed her thigh but then she snapped back.
"Klaus, it's Caroline. Something happened."
"What?" God, had I said that more than ten times in the last five minutes?
She shook her head, "Damon texted me saying that something happened. Stupid boy didn't say what."
"Okay, let's go!" I said, handing her one of my sweaters. "Elijah!" I banged on the wall. But I heard nothing.
"E?" I asked, opening his door. But there was nothing. Just a carefully made bed and the other accessories in his 50's style bedroom. Scratch that, 20's.
"Elijah's not here…maybe someone told him first?" I suggested but Elena just shook her head.
"C'mon!" Elena screamed, grabbing an orange from the fruit bowl and pulling us both to the car.
Elena bit into her lip when we got in the car. I could tell she was nervous and scared. Just like me. And I really couldn't tell what was going to take place that day.
We pulled up to the Boarding house twenty minutes later, but it felt like hours. Caroline was a vampire. What could happen? Did she get staked? Vervained?
Klaus and I rushed into the house and then it finally hit me. No one, except Stefan, knew that Klaus and I were together.
But I couldn't just leave him waiting.
So the only option was to take him in.
I opened the door after finding the key under the door mat. I ran into the living room where I saw Bonnie, Damon and Alaric sitting.
"Elena!" Bonnie cried, the same way as when Grams died. I took her in my arms and held her.
"What happened? Is Care okay?" I asked frantically, ignoring the looks on Damon and Alaric's face when Klaus walked in. Though I'd have to face their questions sooner or later.
"She's better now, thanks to Elijah." Alaric smiled warmly, giving me a bear hug. "He came as soon as we called him."
"Aw," I said, then turned to Klaus. "Isn't that sweet?"
Klaus nodded, "Very."
Damon's eyes grew bigger, "Elena! That's Klaus."
"No shit," I hissed, walking over to Klaus. "I have something to tell all of you."
"What?" Bonnie asked, wiping the tears falling from her eyes. I tipped my gaze to meet Klaus'. He nodded in agreement.
"You?" Alaric chuckled, giving me a grand, happy smile.
I looked at Klaus and he mouthed something like when you're ready, my dear. At least I hope and think that's what he said…
"Bonnie, let's go check on Care." I told her, linking our arms. How come I didn't have the courage to tell Damon, Bonnie and Ric? I didn't really care what Ric thought…but Bonnie? She would forgive and love me forever. Damon? Definitely why.
We walked into Stefan's room, where Elijah and Caroline were playing blackjack. I smiled lightly as I saw her kiss him.
"Cute," I breathed, "Little less tongue next time, though!"
Bonnie started laughing and Caroline went beat red. Elijah glared sullenly at me and then started to smirk.
"Just returning the favor. If you know what I mean!" Elijah walked passed me and I heard his go downstairs. Bonnie looked really confused with both of us.
"So you and Elijah…?" Bonnie said, "But he's old…"
I giggled, "Haha, really old!"
"I like him, okay? We went on a date the other night…you know, when you and Klaus were getting all hot in the bathroom." She smirked, looking at her purple manicured nails. My mouth fell open and Bonnie's whole expression dropped.
"How did you find out?"
"Elijah." She smiled warmly, touching her lips.
"Screw him," I muttered, "Okay, Bonnie, Caroline…please listen!"
"Oh, we are!" Bonnie laughed. The three of us sat together on Stefan's bed and started talking.
Just like best friends.
:) Okay I had to end it there. Not because I wanted to, but it's seven pages long on my screen. Wow, that's pretty good. Well, I'm off to update For the Entertainment and Jar of Hearts (Jasper/Bella Twilight Story) and read Promise me This! That story is turning me into a daily checker! XD
Lots of love ~ Olivia
