A Mikaelson on Each Arm
by Erin Salvatore
Disclaimer: I don't own the Vampire Diaries. I'm just borrowing.
Note: I got the idea for this while I was on vacation. It's just a little experimental story that I'm playing around with. It's an AU, and the plot is this: Caroline has been dating Elijah for the past six months, and she is madly in love with him. However, she is also attracted to his brother, Klaus, against her will.
Don't ask, just enjoy.
Caroline Forbes sighed as she snuggled against Elijah's chest, basking in the afterglow. They had just spent the last several hours making love ever since she came to visit him, and it was the best several hours of her life. She opened her eyes and looked at him, smiling when she saw that he was sound asleep. The poor thing, he was probably conserving his energy after the wild sex they just had. Caroline loved him dearly, and there was nothing she wouldn't do for him, or him for her. The last six months had been wonderful, and she couldn't imagine herself with anyone other than him.
Sighing again, she gently removed herself from his embrace, threw on a bathrobe, and walked out of the room, humming a tune to herself as she walked down the hall, smiling as she remembered what she and Elijah had done.
Caroline was brought out of her reverie just then and turned around to see Klaus standing there, a smug grin on his face, obviously enjoying seeing her with just the robe on.
Raising a curious eyebrow, she replied, "And how long have you been standing there?"
"Long enough to know that you're on cloud nine after your little romp with my brother," said Klaus. "And might I say that you look ravishing in that robe."
Caroline held the robe tightly against her, even though she tied it before she left the room. "Keep your eyes to yourself."
Klaus smirked at her remark. "Oh, sweet Caroline, when are you going to come down from that ivory tower that Elijah has built for you and realize that you can't deny what's going on here?" He approached her. "You may be my brother's girl, but deep down, I know you crave something better."
"I don't believe you," said Caroline. "I don't crave anything."
"You're lying, I can sense it in your voice," said Klaus. "You know that there's something going on between us, you're not just letting yourself see it. You've wanted me since the day you started dating Elijah, and it's been eating at you for months."
Caroline refused to back down. "Klaus, just give it up already. I don't want to hurt Elijah."
"Maybe not right now, you don't," said Klaus. "But, sooner or later, you're going to give in to your desire for me and when you do, it's going to be fantastic." He gently pushed her up against the wall, moving in so that their faces were just inches apart. "Just think about it, Caroline, there's a part of you that's just screaming to embrace the wild side and it'll only be a matter of time before you stop pretending that it doesn't exist."
Caroline wanted to push him away from her, tell him to go to hell, and slap him, all in that order, but part of her knew that he was telling the truth. Even though she loved Elijah deeply, she was finding it hard to ignore that she was also attracted to Klaus.
Klaus saw how quiet she had gotten and smirked. "Speechless I see. Guess that means that what I'm telling the truth." He stepped back and, without a word, walked away. He would've driven the point home by kissing her, but told himself not to. Not yet, anyway. Let what he said sink in a little bit, and then, when Caroline was ready to admit the truth, that was when he was going to make his move.
As soon as he was gone, Caroline went back to Elijah's room to find him awake and sitting up in bed, looking at her with a concerned look on his face.
"Caroline, are you all right?"
"I'd be lying if I said yes, so I won't," she replied. "I ran into Klaus just now."
Elijah shook his head. Why was he not surprised? He knew that his brother had feelings for Caroline and that he would do just about anything to have her.
"What did he say to you?"
"Nothing I haven't already heard before," said Caroline. "He kept trying to tell me that sooner or later, I'd give in to the desire I have for him." She sighed. "Oh God, why can't he just give up? He knows I'm with you."
"Knowing Niklaus as I do, he's a stubborn bastard who will do just about anything to get what he wants," said Elijah. "And unfortunately, that includes what I have. He knows he can't have you, and that makes him want you more."
Caroline walked over to the bed and climbed in, wrapping her arms around Elijah. "I can't help but get the feeling that he's not going to give us any peace."
Elijah kissed the top of her head, holding her close to him. For the next few minutes, there was a silence between them as he thought about the situation they were in. He hated to admit it, but Caroline was right, Klaus wasn't going to give them any peace, especially not if he was desperate enough to go after his brother's girl.
Getting an idea, he said, "Care to join me in the shower, darling?"
Caroline looked at him and smiled, getting out of bed and untying her robe as she headed toward the bathroom. "I'm already one step ahead of you on that."
Elijah licked his lips and quickly got out of bed and, grabbing Caroline's hand, led her into the bathroom, shutting the door behind them.
Note: Yeah, like I said, this is an experimental story I just came up with. It will be Klaroline eventually, but for now, Caroline is with Elijah.
Enjoy and let me know what you think so far! Reviews are love!
