Okay, first off I am so sorry! It's been like a million years since I've updated. I had some stuff go on in my personal and work life that didn't leave me much time to write. I don't have any plans on abandoning any of my stories. So please be patient with me. I would like to thank everyone that has left me feedback and followed this story. You guys rock! Hopefully on the next chapter I will have time to address any comments or questions you guys have. I just really wanted to get something posted as soon as I could. Sorry about grammar errors as well, I kind of rushed this one!
I must warn you there is a little smut later on in this chapter. I'm still not good at writing sex scenes. I tend to blush like a child! So hopefully it comes off somewhat sexy ;)
I will address one thing though. Klaus didn't sleep with Hayley in this story. She just wanted him to. Sorry, I didn't make that clear. :)
Not sure when I will able to post another update. Hopefully within the next week.
After having observed enough of the little love fest that was going on between my little sister and Stefan, I began herding the kids out. "We've got to go Stefan. Don't want to tick off Caroline." If this Caroline was anything like the other one then you don't mess with her when she is in party planning mode. I remembered how she was during the Miss Mystic Falls Pageant.
"Okay. Okay." Stefan said pulling away from Rebekah. "Let me go check my hair first. I think the tiara messed it up."
Both Rebekah and I groaned out loud. Obviously Stefan's love for his hair stayed the same no matter what world they were in.
"Lay off guys." Stefan put his hand up in defense. "It takes time to look this good." He then proceeded to put on his best model face and strutted around the kitchen like he was a model on the runway.
The kids burst out with giggles again, even Joseph started bouncing around in my arms with joy. They obviously thought their Uncle Stefan was pretty funny. Even I had to admit, this Stefan was far less brooding then vampire Stefan. I wasn't quite sure yet which one I like better yet. I did have lots of fun with Ripper Stefan as well.
I headed to the van with the kids while Stefan went to fix his hero hair. I had no clue it was such an ordeal to load a few kids up in a vehicle. I remembered back in the day when kids were just tossed into wagons that bounced around everywhere and nobody worried their heads over it then. But now you have all these crazy buckles and safety latches. You would think we were preparing to launch them to the moon. If Stefan hadn't been with me I would have likely just had the kids climb in and off we would go.
Daniel was easy enough cause he could do it all himself. Claire wasn't too much worse. Just a few snaps and she was good to go. Joseph on the other hand was the problem. First you had to position his car seat just right so it would connect with the contraption it went with. By the time I finally heard the click sound indicating it connected to its base I was sweating my ass off and struggling to refrain from using the curse words that were coursing through my head. Wiping the sweat off my forehead I noticed Claire and Daniel giving me odd looks. They were probably used to this transition going much smoother with the other Klaus.
Not sure what to say to them I gave them a small smile and nodded my head before sliding the van door shut. By that time Stefan was heading towards the van and Rebekah was leaning in the open doorway watching as we took off.
"Dude, I can't believe you are almost thirty." Stefan laughed, shaking his head.
"Yeah, me either." I replied. After being alive for a thousand years thirty didn't even seem like a blip on the radar. But I knew to a human the thirty year milestone was a big deal. Since I was getting ready to turn thirty, that would mean Caroline and the rest of the brat pack were probably around 26. "You're not too far off"
"Yeah, but by the time I turn 30 you will already be almost halfway through your thirties old man." Stefan teased.
I just shook my head. "I may be old but with age comes wisdom."
Stefan started laughing, "Okay Yoda."
"Whose Yoda?" I inquired.
"Yeah, whatever Klaus, try to pretend you're not a Star Wars nerd. I remember when we were kids and you guys were back from England for the summer, you and Damon used to have Star Wars marathons all the time. Heck, I bet I could dig up a picture of you guys in your homemade storm trooper outfits."
"Is that so." Was all I could come up with. I vaguely remember the Star Wars movies making a wave in popular culture but I personally never seen them. I much prefer the classic movies to the modern-day crap they make now.
"So speaking of Damon, he texted me earlier." Stefan said, his face suddenly becoming serious. "He mentioned something about Hayley coming on to you at practice."
I couldn't help but roll my eyes as Stefan continued his voice barely above a whisper so the kids wouldn't hear, "When you told me about her propositioning and flirting with you, I thought you said you were going to call her last night and shut her down?"
"I must've gotten busy with that poker game and forgotten." I suggested, thinking that could have been what happened. I couldn't imagine that I would ever cheat on Caroline with Hayley. Caroline was it for me, if I could claim her as mine forever there would never be another woman for me.
"I know you wanted to see how far she would take it so you can finally convince Tyler that she is no good for him. I just want to make sure that you didn't end up taking it too far on your end."
"Stefan, I would never do that to Caroline." I said, pulling in the driveway and turning to look him in the eyes. "I've done some bad things in my life Stefan, more than I want to even admit but hurting Caroline is not an option at this point. I love her too much." And surprisingly that was the truth. Sure, I had hurt Caroline before. I almost winced when I thought of the time I staked her with that damn lamp. Not my proudest moment for sure. But after I cured her that night, I realized that I couldn't hurt her again, ever. Watching her descend slowly into death had been the worst torture I had experienced in my thousand years on this planet. I still hated myself for making her suffer as long as I did before I fed her my blood.
Stefan smiled, relief evident in his face. "I thought so. Anyone can tell you and Caroline are meant to be. I'm sorry I doubted you my friend, I was just worried that maybe Hayley had gotten her way. I mean she is attractive and she has wanted you since the moment she met you."
At that moment Caroline had just pulled up in her car as well, getting out the sun hit her hair making her look like a golden angel. "She doesn't hold a candle to my Caroline." I said to him before climbing out of the van.
I went around to the side of the van to get the kids out when I felt Caroline come up next to me. "Hey Stefan! How's Rebekah feeling?"
"Hey Care." Stefan greeted her, coming up and wrapping an arm around her shoulder. I tried to fight that nagging jealous feeling that was rising in the pit of my stomach. I knew they were just friends, but I still couldn't get rid of that feeling. "Rebakah's feeling good, she's going through that nesting period so she's about to drive me crazy with a mile long honey do list of chores to get done."
Caroline laughed, "Yeah, I remember that period. You think you had it bad, it's a wonder Klaus survived my nesting period. You know how I can be."
Stefan's cell phone rang interrupting their conversation. "Sorry, I got to take this, it's a patient."
"How was practice?" Caroline asked Daniel, ruffling his hair as he climbed out of the van.
"It was good, I scored a goal!"
"Good job sweetie! Why don't you go up and take a quick bath before Grandma Liz gets here to pick you up."
"Do I have to take a bath?" Claire asked as I un-buckled her car seat.
"No Claire Bear you don't. You didn't get all sweaty like these stinky boys."
"Daddy isn't stinky, Mommy!" Claire said, giving Caroline the patented angry stare that definitely mirrored Klaus's.
"No of course he isn't." Caroling laughed, raising her hands in surrender. "You're such a daddy's girl."
Claire smiled at them before running into the house. I was about to try and figure out how to get Joseph out when Caroline grabbed my arm, pulling me towards her.
"Are you okay Babe?" She asked, wrapping her arms around my neck and staring into my eyes.
"Yeah, I'm good." I managed to get out, wrapping my arms around her waist. Something I had wanted to do for a very long time. I loved the feel of her in my arms, it just felt so right.
"My mom will be here any time now to get the kids. Once she does why don't you ditch Stefan for a few and come take a shower with me." She whispered in my ear, her seductive voice giving me chills. "I mean, there's no reason to waste the water taking two showers."
She pulled back and winked at me before kissing me softly on the lips.
"I would love that." I told her truthfully. Of course that followed with visuals of her in a steamy shower, getting me hard almost instantaneously. At that moment I wished I was in anything other than these damn thin shorts. She seemed to feel my excitement for her as her body was still pressed up against mine. She smiled, kissing me softly again before pulling back. "Someone's eager today. Keep that enthusiasm because I plan to do some very naughty things to you in that shower."
I'm not sure but I think I may have blushed a little when she said that. I mean, I've been with women before. More than I can even count, but this just wasn't any woman. This is Caroline, my dream girl. I didn't really truly believe I would ever get to have moments like this with her but here I was. Though part of my brain was telling me this wasn't really her and this wasn't really me either. I felt a pang of sadness as I watched her walk away, what if I could never convince her to give me a chance in the real world.
I was pulled from my thoughts by Stefan, "Sorry about that, that patient is needing to see me. After I help you with the chairs do you think I can borrow your car for a minute. Sometimes I regret giving my psych patients my personal number."
"Sure mate, no problem." I said, smiling thinking of the possibility of having some alone time with Caroline.
"Ew, dude, I know that smile. Please don't give me images of you and Caroline that I don't need." Stefan groaned, "I still haven't gotten the image out of my head when I caught you and Caroline in that limo during prom almost 10 years ago." Stefan did an exaggerated shiver of disgust. I smirked, wishing I could tap into this other Klaus's memories.
We got busy bringing up chairs from the basement and placing them everywhere Caroline directed, and then of course sometimes re-directed if it didn't meet her standards of perfection.
Stefan had just left to go see about his patient when Liz Forbes showed up to pick up the kids. Caroline was occupied so I opened the door letting her in and was shocked when she gave me a friendly smile and pulled me in for a hug. I gave her a stiff hug in return, feeling totally uncomfortable with this show of affection.
"Hey mom!" Caroline said, bouncing down the stairs with Joseph in her arms.
"Hey sweetie!" Liz said, approaching Caroline and immediately sweeping Joseph from her arms.
"How is my precious baby?" Liz cooed at Joseph, who gave his big toothless grin in response.
"Thanks mom, I missed you too." Caroline pretended to be hurt.
Liz just waved her off, "Yeah, Yeah."
Just then Claire and Daniel came running in. "Grandma Liz!" They yelled, running up to her and hugging her tightly.
"Hey guys! I missed you guys so much! You ready for our sleepover?"
"Yes!" They yelled in unison.
"Ok, then, go grab your sleeping bags and backpacks and lets go."
They grabbed their stuff and was about ready to head out the door, when Caroline called out, "You guys forget something?"
"No, I don't think so." Daniel said, examining the items he carried in his hands.
"I don't know kids, like maybe giving your mom and dad a proper goodbye."
"Oh yeah". Daniel said with a roll of his eyes, obviously something he had inherited from Caroline. He went up and hugged his mom and then hugged me last.
Claire was a little more affectionate, she hugged her mom and then ran to me. I bent down to hug her and she threw her little arms around my neck and squeezed me as tight as she could before releasing me. I couldn't help but place a kiss on her head before she pulled away.
I followed Caroline's lead with Joseph, who was still in Liz's arms. She kissed both of his chubby cheeks and tickled his belly. When I went to give him a kiss, he grabbed my face and tried to pull me towards him. Giving me an open mouth kiss, like he wanted to eat my face. Of course it was a slobbery kiss, which I had to wipe off with my hand after I pulled back. Surprisingly I wasn't disgusted by this but found it rather amusing.
Once the kids and Liz were out the door I finally breathed a sigh of relief. As endearing and adorable as the children were I was kind of relieved to see them go for awhile. Not because I didn't like them around, more because I felt this pressure that I had never felt before. When in the presence of the children I felt the need to be a better person.
Since awakening in this strange world this morning, I've been able to pull a great amount of patience from myself that I hadn't been able to do since I was a human over a thousand years ago. Maybe that was because the wolf part of me was currently dormant or rather it was having the love I've always thought myself unworthy of. It didn't really matter, cause this love I was feeling from Caroline, these children, my family and friends was all fake. This world was fake and I would be doing myself a huge favor if I could keep myself from being swept up in this fantasy world.
I was pulled from my internal debate by a hand grabbing mine and tugging.
"Come on Babe." Caroline said, smiling. "Who knows how much time we have before Stefan gets back."
She kicked off her flip flops by the door and began pulling me upstairs towards the bedroom. You would've thought this was my first time the way I started to get nervous.
I was seriously tempted to try and distract her away from this. I really wanted my first time with Caroline to be with the real Caroline but once she removed her shirt, I was done. I told myself that I may never get a chance with the real Caroline so I better take advantage of this moment and in grain it into my brain forever.
Once she had her shirt removed I hastily began removing mine. I barely had the soccer jersey over my head when her lips found mine and she pushed me up against the door we had just shut. So she liked to be the aggressor, huh. Well she was going to have her hands full today because so don't I.
I quickly changed positions so I had her pressed against the door, kissing her roughly as I did so. I pulled back and looked from her swollen lips down to her bare chest and I swear I growled, I couldn't't help it. The beast still must be somewhere deep inside of me. She giggled at my growl obviously turned on by my desire for her.
I quickly undid the button on her pants, giving her space to slide them off her legs. Not satisfied with speed she was accomplishing this task with, I began to help her. Which resulted in me more or less rubbing my hands up and down her bare thighs and over her lace panties. I quickly realized I wanted to explore every inch of her body, from head to toe. Unfortunately we didn't have all the time it would take to do that. Suddenly the thought of staying in this alternative world a little longer than necessary didn't sound so bad.
Once her jeans had been removed I picked her up and she wrapped her legs around my waist while I carried her over to the bed. Our mouths fused together, as I greedily took what she offered. I dropped her onto the bed, taking a moment to enjoy the view of her laying there in nothing but those pink lace panties.
"Babe, you going to just stand there and enjoy the view or you going to ravish me already." She said, with a smile and a wink.
I smirked, knowing that I was going to ravish her like she's never been ravished before. I planned on making that other Klaus look like an amateur compared to my skills.
It only took me a second to discard of those hideous soccer shorts and my boxer briefs. She reached up grabbing my necklace and pulling me down to her, devouring my lips again. She truly is a marvelous kisser.
I pulled away from her mouth, kissing my way down her neck and then to her chest. I took time sucking each of her perky pink nipples, enjoying the moaning that I was pulling from her. I began to make my way lower, kissing down her stomach until I reached her already moist folds. She spread her legs farther apart anticipating what I was about to do to her.
I gently licked between her folds enjoying the slight tremor that went through her. She weaved her hands through my hair as I took her bud into my mouth. Her taste was intoxicating. As i sucked and licked on her, she moaned my name passionately. I pulled back and replaced my mouth with two fingers. As my fingers explored her my thumb began massaging her bud, eliciting panted moans from her now. I could tell she was about to cum.
I watched her face as she came, her hands now twisted in the sheets. Her eyes were closed as her whole body shook with release. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and to know it was me that was the cause of it pleased me beyond belief.
As the last tremors left her body I pulled my now soaked fingers from her and began to make my way back up her. Kissing my way back up. Her moans were more whimpers now as she was still coming down from her orgasm.
I positioned myself at her entrance, harder than I had ever been in my life. I slowly entered her, reveling in the tightness. She moaned my name again as I began to pump in and out of her, increasing my speed each time. I put my hand behind her knee and pushed one of her legs up higher so I could hit her sweet spot better.
Leaning down I sucked on one of her nipples then the other. I held off my release until I felt the signs of her second orgasm. I made sure she get off before I came, moaning her name as I did.
After my own tremors wore off I collapsed next to her in the bed, pulling her into me. She sighed contentedly into my chest as she wrapped her arm around my stomach.
"Didn't you say something about a shower love?" I asked.
She laughed in response. "Yes, I did."
She sat up grabbing my hand and pulling me up as well. I couldn't help the groan that left my body. I missed having the vampire strength and lack of aches and pains that's for sure. She led me to the bathroom and started the shower. She pulled me in behind her and shut the glass shower door.
She pushed me against the shower wall before dropping to her knees in front of me. I could barely contain my surprise at what she was about to do. I instantly got hard for her again, springing to life before she even had a chance to put her mouth on me.
She began by licking my tip, causing uncontrollable tremors to course through me. Then without warning she took me entirely into her mouth as far she could. Thank goodness the shower wall was there to support me.
She grabbed one of my hands putting it into her hair, signaling me to set the tempo I wanted her to go at. I put both hands into her now wet golden strands. She sucked and licked me until I couldn't hold off any longer. Before I had a chance to cum, I gently pushed her back. I kissed her passionately before turning her around and entering her from behind. I pounded into her as she put both hands against the shower wall bracing herself. We came together, both of us again out of breath and standing on shaky legs.
We washed each other and enjoyed the warmth of the shower before deciding to get out.
"I better start getting ready or I'm not going to be done on time." Caroline said, drying her towel with her hair. "After you get dressed can you go down in case some guest arrive early?"
"Sure. " I said, leaving my wet towel in the hamper before heading to the closet.
"Klaus." She said, stopping me. I turned back to look at her. She walked up to me and kissed me. Pulling back her eyes met mine, "I just wanted to say Happy Birthday and I love you."
The sincerity in her eyes made my eyes tear up, I had never in my life had someone look at me with that much love. "I love you too Caroline. Always and Forever."
She gave me that same sweet smile she had gave me when I had told her I would get her a prom dress from my storage. I kissed her gently on her forehead before heading to the closet to get my clothes. My heart was pounding as I thought about what going back to my old world would be like, it suddenly seemed more gray and lonely than ever.
I had just gotten dressed when I heard the doorbell. I went downstairs to answer, not even bothering to look through the peephole before opening the door. I wish I would have.
The couple standing at the doorway smiled as I opened the door, my look of astonishment threw them off. "Mother? Father?" I said, my jaw still on the floor.
"Hello darling." Esther greeted me with a smile.
When I didn't respond, Mikael shook his head. "Well, are you going to let us in or not boy?"
To be continued...
