While out on a romantic dinner with Tyler, Caroline is kidnapped by Klaus and Rebekah and held hostage as leverage for Tyler to join Klaus and his hybrid army. Tyler must race against time with his friends to save Caroline without joining Klaus...and it may result in the death of Damon, Katherine and Caroline herself, when vampire/vampire hunter Michael is the only one who can truly destroy Klaus. Is Tyler willing to risk all their lives to save the love of his life?
AN: Don't own Vampire Diaries. ENJOY!
"Caroline, come on!"
"Okay, okay. I'm done."
"Thank god." Tyler Lockwood's gaze followed his girlfriends footsteps as she came down the stairs, a tight red dress clinging to her body.
"Your mouth's open." Caroline said, raising an eyebrow. Tyler closed it and cleared his throat.
"Sorry." She giggled, then wrapped her arms around his neck, kissing him lightly.
"Let's go to this special dinner of yours, huh?"
"Yes! Let's." He held his arm out and they both walked out to the car. Tyler pulled out of Caroline's driveway, holding her hand in his and using one hand to steer. The music on his stereo played through the car, Caroline looked at him and smiled lightly.
Cups of the Rose
Bitches in my old phone
I should call one and go home
I've been in this club too long
The woman that I would try
Is happy with a good guy
"Where are we going?" Caroline asked Tyler.
"To a restaurant." He said mischeviously.
"Well, I know that!" Caroline said, sighing. He laughed.
I'm just sayin', you could do better
Tell me have you heard that lately?
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin', only if you make me
"How far away is it?"
"Not far." Tyler said, shrugging. She growled playfully. He simply laughed and kissed her hand.
"I'm not saying a word till we get there." He said, shaking his head. She crossed her arms, but smiled.
"Fine." She pouted. They rode in silence for almost half an hour before they pulled up at Luis's Restaurant.
"Oh, PASTA!" Caroline exclaimed. Tyler laughed.
"I know it's your favorite, so..." He said, shrugging. She kissed him and hopped out of the car. He took her hand and went to the front desk.
"Table for two. Tyler Lockwood."
"Right this way, sir."
They were taken to a table with a view of the city. The lights sparkled from the city, dancing against the glass. Caroline grinned and looked at Tyler.
"This is so great."
"I want this to be perfect. After everything that happened last week...losing Stefan, me dying and coming back as a hybrid...we deserve time off."
"How are you feeling, by the way?" Caroline asked him, biting her lip.
"I'm great. I feel so much more...alive."
"Hmm..." Caroline said, sipping her water.
"Hey..." She looked at him, and he smiled at her.
"I'm still Tyler, Care. I promise." She smiled at him sadly.
"I know." She leaned forward and kissed him lightly. But Tyler could feel the tear fall down her cheek.
"I'll be back." She whispered.
"Care..." She got up and walked away toward the bathroom. Tyler watched her go with remorse. The night was not turning out like he planned.
Caroline slammed against the door of one of the stalls, collapsing to the floor in tears.
She didn't know why she was crying so bad, but she felt like something had changed.
Tyler was not the same.
But at the same time he was.
She was so scared for him, and what might happen to him.
She got up, walking over to the sink and washing her face, not caring that her make up was being removed in the process.
She looked up-
and saw Rebekah in the reflection of the mirror.
She growled and turned, her fangs baring.
Rebekah grabbed her around the throat and slammed her into the mirror, then snapped her neck.
"Whew...fiesty one, you are." She said, grinning widely.
"Let's get her out of here." A male voice said. Rebekah turned and found her brother entering the bathroom.
"This is a female toilet, Nick. No entry."
"Well, I never really have been much of a rule-book follower. Let's pay a visit to my little hybrid and give him the proposition. Get her to the truck before she heals." Klaus said, giving Rebekah the keys. Rebekah sighed, then grabbed Caroline and ran off.
Klaus grinned cockily and exited the bathroom, walking over to the table where Tyler was watching the city out of the window. He sat down and Tyler's head snapped over to him.
"Car-" He stopped short, his eyes going wide.
"Hello, Tyler. How's hybridism going for you?" Klaus asked.
"What the hell are you doing here? Where's Caroline?" Tyler said, sitting up straight.
"I have a...deal to make with you."
"Screw you." Tyler said angrily.
"Oh come on, mate. You haven't even heard the deal yet."
"I know you're a dick. I'm not making any deals with you." Tyler got up and Klaus grabbed his arm.
"Sit down. Or your girlfriend's little head will be ripped out and stuck on the ariel of your car as a present." Klaus said calmly. Tyler glared at him, then sat down slowly.
"Let her go." Tyler said quietly, but threateningly. Klaus almost roared with laughter.
"You're in no position to make threats, friend. Now listen, I want you to come and join me and my army, help me make more hybrids. Join my cause. If you don't...well...let's just say Caroline will be hanging out with me until you change your mind."
"You son of a bitch."
"Hmm...I agree with you. I am a son of a bitch. A cheating bitch. But hell...she made me a new species, so I should be thanking her on bended knee. Anyway...I'll give you until tomorrow to decide what you want to do. If you ever want to see Caroline again...well...here's my number. I'm sure you'll figure it out."
Tyler looked down at the napkin Klaus handed him.
"This is about me and you, leave Caroline-" Tyler looked up and saw Klaus was gone.
"Out of it." He finished. He ran a hand through his hair and stabbed his knife into the table angrily.
She woke to the sound of water dripping to the floor. She raised her head, groaning as pain cracked through her body. She looked up and saw her arms were chained to the ceiling and she was hanging feet off the floor.
"Ugh! HELLO!" She yelled. She growled in frustration. Why was she always the one getting kidnapped and tortured?
"Hello, sweetheart." Caroline turned at the sound of the voice. She'd know it from anywhere.
"Right on the money." He walked toward her, smiling.
"What do you want from me?" She asked quietly.
"Nothing. We want your little hybrid boyfriend to join us and well...he's being a little reluctant. Don't worry darling, i'm not planning on hurting you or anything. That is until your boyfriend decides to join us. If he doesn't decide by tomorrow, well...let's just say you've been there before." He said, smiling menacingly. He walked up to her, brushing her hair out of her face. She flinched at his touch.
"It's going to be fun having you around." He said, grinning sadistically.
