Caroline screamed in agony, as the wooden bullet rammed into her chest, narrowly missing her heart. Her shirt was soaked with her blood, and she was afraid she was going to faint from the blood loss. She desperately tried to pull at the chains that tied her legs together.
"Don't bother, love" Her attacker said, as he picked up the gun and began loading it with more bullets "I've injected you with enough vervain to make sure that you wouldn't be able to lift a finger, for a week at least"
Caroline attempted to glare at him, but considering her current state, it wasn't very effective.
"What do you from me, Klaus?" Caroline managed to spit out "I haven't got anything that's of importance to you"
The man-Klaus- got off the stool he was sitting on, and walked towards her. Caroline repressed the urge to shudder, as he cocked his head to the side and observed her.
"Feisty little one, aren't you?" He gave a cold smirk, and bent down to tuck a strand of blonde hair behind her ear. Caroline flinched away immediately "You can be of great importance to me, young one. I am going to use you, to get to the doppelganger."
Elena. It is always about Elena. Caroline wanted to scream out in anger. She was freaking being tortured for Elena. Caroline tried to push down the bitterness that was bubbling inside her, but was failing miserably. This is all Elena's fault. All of it.
"And what's more" Klaus snapped her out of her thoughts "I am going to make that arrogant vampire get her to me. What was his name again? Ah… Damon"
"Why do you think, Damon would come and trade me for Elena?" Caroline snapped "He would never choose me over Elena. No one ever chooses me. You might just as well kill me and get it done with, cause Damon's never going to come."
Which was sadly true. She was as good as dead. Damon's never going to come. Infact, he might happily ask Klaus to get rid of her.
She choked back sobs and blinked away hot angry tears that were threatening to fall. For once, why couldn't she matter to someone? For once, why couldn't anyone think about her? Be concerned of her safety and not Elena's? Why? Why? Why?
She thought Tyler was the one. She really did. She thought they would protect each other or eternity. That he would be beside her forever.
She had to bite back a sort. Tyler had broken up with her a week ago and run off to God knows where, because he was still dealing with his 'hybrid' issue.
Suddenly, Klaus picked up her handbag which was lying on the floor beside her and rummaged around, till he pulled out her phone.
"Let's see what happens, shall we?" He smirked in that lopsided way of her, and began flipping through her contacts "Let's see… Danny, Danielle and ah… Damon" He pressed the little green button, and turned on the loudspeaker.
Caroline could feel her heart rate increasing with every ring. This was it.
Damon groaned as he saw Caroline's name flashing on his phone. What did that girl want now?
"What is it Barbie?" Damon asked, annoyed "I haven't got time to deal with your shit now"
"Damon… How nice to hear you voice again" A voice, unmistakably Klaus floated to his ears
Damon blinked at few times, surprised. He pulled away the phone from his ears and checked the caller ID. Yup, it was definitely Caroline's phone. Damon finally put two and two together, and his eyes widened in realization.
"Where is she? " He growled out "What have you done to her? I'll kill you if anything happened to her"
Klaus chuckled on the other side, amused by the conversation.
"Oh don't worry, she's alive" He turned to look at the blonde writhing on the floor "… barely. Do you want proof?"
Before Damon could protest, he heard a gunshot and an anguished cry from Caroline.
"Stop it!" Damon yelled "What do you want, Klaus?"
"Elena. Give me Elena within an hour. If you don't… Well… Let's just say I am going to feed this feisty blonde to the wolves. "
Damon's breath hitched "You-"
"An hour, Damon" Klaus cut across him "You know where to find me. Good bye"
The phone clicked and Damon pulled it away from his ear. He plopped himself on the ground and pressed the bridge of his nose.
Bloody Caroline. Always managed to get herself into trouble.
'That idiotic blonde is going to be the death of me' He thought bitterly as he poured himself another glass of Bourbon.
Just then Elena came in, banging the door of the Salvatore boarding house wide open, smiling widely.
"I think managed to get through Stefan" Elena exclaimed happily "I think I saw a flash of the old Stefan. I know he's in there Damon, we just got to keep trying"
Damon watched as Elena rambled on about what they could do to make Stefan flip the switch back on.
'Am I willing to sacrifice her for someone else?'
He watched as Elena paced around the room, coming up with ridiculous ideas that bordered on silly to just plain stupid.
He had an answer to his question.
'Damon's never going to come. Oh my God. Oh my God. I am going to die today. I didn't even get to see my mom. Oh my God. '
Klaus watched as the girl played with her fingers nervously. He could see she was falling apart, but she still managed to keep a strong face, and not managed to crumble down completely. Too bad he was going to have to kill her; she was a feisty little thing. Pity pity.
Caroline managed to keep herself from freaking out completely. She was going to die. She could see Klaus glance at the clock and then at the stake beside him.
Was death going to hurt? She hoped not. She always wanted to die peacefully. Which was quite an irony, as her life was anything but peaceful.
Her mom. She could only imagine what her mom would go through. Her mom already lost her husband, and now she's going to lose her daughter too. She was going to be all alone now.
Caroline choked back her sobs. She never told her mom she loved her. Never cooked her dinner when she came back from work, tired. Never gave her a present on her birthday. Oh how much she regrets that now.
"Time's up, blonde" Klaus smirked as he took the stake in his hand and yanked her to her feet "Looks like you are going to die today."
Caroline didn't say anything. Just closed for her eyes, and waited for it all to end.
