A Mystic Falls Christmas

Note: Hey, guys! I thought that with the holidays fast approaching and the midseason finale having a holiday theme, I'd do a Delena and Klaroline Christmas story. It's an AU and the plot is this: What do you get for the vampires who have everything? Caroline and Elena decide to do boudoir pictures for their men, while Klaus plans to make good on his promise to take Caroline on a romantic trip through Europe, and Damon doesn't know what to do for Elena.
Don't ask, I just thought I'd play around with this.
Elena sighed as she sat at the table. Caroline had suggested meeting her there after school and when Elena asked what it was about, the blonde vampire said that it was of the utmost importance. And so, like the loyal friend that she was, Elena agreed and for the past ten minutes since arriving at the popular Mystic Falls hangout, she waited for the other girl to show.
It wasn't long until Caroline finally arrived. She saw Elena waiting for her and went over to the table the brunette vampire was sitting in. No sooner did she sit down than Elena decided to ask her what this meeting was about.
"So, why did you ask me to meet you here, Caroline?"
"Well, I'm glad you asked," the blonde replied. "You see, Christmas is coming and I wanted to do something very special for Klaus, seeing as how this is our first official Christmas as a couple. The only thing is, what do you get for the vampire who has everything?"
Elena nodded. "Oh. Yeah, I'm having the same problem with Damon. I want to give him something he'd really like. I keep asking him, but I get nothing in response."
"How about a bottle of his favorite bourbon? You know how he loves his liquor."
"I'm not getting him liquor, Caroline," said Elena. "Come on, this is serious." Remembering what she had said about doing something special for Klaus, she added, "Why not get Klaus some new art supplies? He's an artist, right?"
"Yeah, but that sounds too simple," said Caroline. "There's got to be something I can do that he won't expect." Her blue eyes widened. "Holy shit, I think I know what I can do." She looked at Elena. "What we both can do."
Elena blinked. "What's that?"
"Boudoir pictures?" said Elena. "Caroline, tell me you're kidding."
"I wish I was, but I'm not," said Caroline. "Imagine the look on Damon's face on Christmas morning when he opens his present and sees a picture frame that contains a sexy picture of you." She saw the look of hesitation on Elena's face. "Come on, Elena, this will be fun. Think of it as those pictures we took together when we were kids at the carnival."
"This is different, Caroline," said Elena. "Boudoir pictures are...sexy."
"Well, you do think Damon is sexy, right?" said Caroline. "Besides, women do this sort of thing for their boyfriends and husbands all the time. It brings out their wild side, and allows them to really act out their fantasies."
Elena raised an eyebrow. "And you're sure this will work?"
"Trust me, Lena, I know what I'm talking about," said Caroline. "We both want to do something special for the vampires in our lives, and this is just the thing."
Mikaelson Mansion – That Same Moment...
Damon walked into the Mikaelson mansion, not sure why he had agreed to this. Klaus had requested his presence and although he wasn't exactly looking forward to it, he also couldn't help but be curious about it. With the Original hybrid, it could be anything.
No sooner did Damon enter than he saw his host approaching him. The elder Salvatore raised an eyebrow and said, "What's going on, Klaus? Why did you ask me here?"
Klaus smirked at his guest's curiosity. "Come now, Damon, we both know the answer to that question. I called you here because I wanted to discuss something with you."
"And that would be what exactly?"
"You know that this is my first official Christmas with Caroline and I want to do something special for her."
"You mean besides pretty dresses, jewelry and romantic drawings?"
Klaus nodded. "Precisely."
Damon sighed. He couldn't believe he was actually doing this. Here he didn't know what he was going to get Elena and he had to give Klaus advice on what to give Caroline? This is bullshit, he thought. I should be asking him for advice, not the other way around. Oh well, no sense in refusing, especially since I might get some inspiration for Elena's gift in the process.
"Okay, I'll bite, figuratively speaking, of course," he said. "What's the one thing you haven't done for Caroline yet?"
Klaus mused on that for a moment and then, his greenish blue eyes widened. "I think I've got it. When I had the ball here at the mansion, and Caroline and I were admiring my collection of artwork, I made mention of the landscape I had done that was currently on display at the Hermitage."
Damon nodded. "Yeah, so?"
"So, that's the answer," said Klaus. "I'll make good on the promise to take Caroline on a trip to Europe. She told me she had never been anywhere, and this will be the perfect opportunity to do it." He smiled. "Damon, you bastard, you are a genius."
Damon smiled as well, even though he wasn't sure why Klaus couldn't have come up with that himself. "Thanks." He cleared his throat. "So, now that we've got you situated, maybe you can help me figure out what to get for Elena."
"Ah, still clueless, are we? Well, surely, she has been dropping hints?"
"Yeah, but I want to do something special for her," said Damon. "You're taking Caroline to Europe. How the hell can I top that?"
Klaus raised an eyebrow. "This isn't a competition, Damon. There are no winners or losers."
"I'm a competitive guy, Klaus," said Damon. "I can't stand to be second best, not to anyone."
Before Klaus could say anything, Damon stormed out of the mansion, got into the Camaro, and drove away. Helping Klaus had done nothing to help with his frustration over not having a clue as to what to get Elena for Christmas. Whatever he did decide to get her, he hoped that it would be as epic as Klaus' gift to Caroline.
Note: With that, my new story begins. Damon will figure out what to get Elena, guys, I promise.
