"Hello love," Klaus greeted as Caroline walked into her room covered only in a towel after her bath.
"Klaus," she said with some shock.
"Do you like these kinds of things?" Klaus held up the book Caroline had hidden under her pillow. Her cheeks heated even though she didn't blush anymore.
"Why are you sitting in my room reading my books messing up my bed," she growled snatching her book from his grasp.
"I can buy a grey tie love, and a red room too if you'd like," he smirked at her.
She rolled her eyes and put her book back on her desk while going over to her closet.
"I have a busy day today I don't have time to entertain you," she said looking for a shirt or even a sundress.
"What's on the agenda today?"
"I have a job interview."
"You should dress more professionally then. Why do you need a job Caroline?"
"So I have some spending cash," she huffed.
"How much do you need?" he asked taking his wallet out.
"You're joking aren't you?" she raised an eyebrow at him.
"Cancel that and I'll take you shopping instead. I can afford you Caroline don't fret."
"Look Klaus it isn't just that it's about taking up my time since I can't go to college, it's about wanting to do something for my own for once. Besides I don't want your money."
"You could just compel them to give you clothes you know. As for the time issue I can help with that," he smirked. "Maybe my new red room can as well."
Caroline rolled her eyes but found herself laughing anyways. "If you can give me a good reason to hang out with you then fine."
"Because I can make you feel like a princess," his eyes suddenly got intense as he stared at her.
Her breath hitched and she swallowed hard and had to turn away to refocus. "Fine but you call Applebees and tell them," she tossed him her phone.
"Gladly," he smiled and dialed before compelling the innocent host to scratch Caroline's interview. "Shall we be off then?"
"Yes," Caroline came out of her closet in a light purple sundress and white purse. "But I'm not letting you spend money on me."
"Caroline that is how we are supposed to get things now-a-days so I'm told."
"I know but I want to do something without money or I'll pay for my own."
"That's no way to treat a lady on a date," he looked appalled.
"Klaus do you want to take me out or not?"
"I do that's kind of the point I'm trying to make here love."
"We'd still be going out."
"Fine I'll take you by my home first, I have an idea but I need something from Rebekah first."
"Very well," Caroline agreed and got into Klaus' passenger seat. "What do you need from Rebekah?"
"A dress for you, I have a place I'd like to take you and I have a specific dress I'd like to put you in for the occasion."
"That doesn't sound creepy at all," she said gazing out the window.
"I guarantee you'll love it," he smiled adoringly over at her.
"Rebekah," Klaus called as he entered the house. Klaus was instantly worried as he entered and saw things thrown about.
"Nik!" Rebekah said panicked. "Run!" she hollered as a tapestry they had hung in the entryway fell and wrapped around Klaus and Caroline.
"What the hell is this?" Caroline yelled.
"Rebekah!" Klaus hollered attempting to break the tapestry.
"Hello Niklaus," Klaus froze up as he heard his mother's voice.
"What is the meaning of this?" he snarled.
"I've come to put an end to you once and for all, you cannot be allowed to reek havoc here any longer Niklaus."
"Klaus!" Caroline said panicked.
"It is too bad that your friend will also parish."
"Don't you touch her!" Klaus growled.
"You doomed her when you pretended to care for her, now she will be cursed along side you."
"You let her out of this mother!" he snarled and clutched Caroline closer to him.
"Don't fret Niklaus you have a chance of reuniting with the young blonde. But for now we'll say goodbye to her first." A chant was muttered and even though Caroline was sobbing and hugging Klaus tightly her feet and legs began to disappear.
"Klaus," she sobbed.
"I will find you," he promised as he crashed his lips onto her own. For the second that she was left beside him he felt her return his kiss. "I'll murder you mother!"
"Relax Niklaus, she is safe and you will see her soon. She will not remember you however. The young maid's memory will be hidden in a precious object, once you give her the object you will have one day with her before you move on and must start over."
"When will it end? When can I keep Caroline?"
"Even I don't know that," Esther said and snapped as Klaus was sent spiraling away. "I hope you paid attention to those Disney tales Rebekah had you watch, they'll assist you."
Klaus felt as though he was being sucked along a vacuum hose. He fell hard onto a wooden floor and felt a nauseating rhythm of unstable ground begin. The smell of the sea entered his nostrils before the sound of a voice entered his ears. Caroline.
