A/N- SPOILER ALERT(TVD)!
DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS FOR SEASON 5!
Okay, so according to the spoilers, it seems as if Kat and Care are going to become besties! (I know best news I've heard since the invention of the remote) So how could I not write about this?
I'm not exactly sure what this is, but it's going to have multiple chapters. This does follow the current TVD S5 story line so if you haven't watched I don't recommend reading, but if you absolutely don't want to watch S5 you don't have to because it pretty much explains itself in here.
Katherine violently pounded on Damon's back as she screamed! "Damon! Let me go! I swear to God I will have your head on a platter that I will eat while I get my hair done!" She drove her fists even harder into his back, but he barely even flinched.
Damon continued to walk with Katherine swung over his shoulder, one hand secured around her waist. "Oh, yeah? How are you gonna do that when I can snap your neck like a twig and your only weapon is the razor I packed in your suitcase?" He gestured to the luggage he was rolling down the pavement in his other hand.
"When I get my vampirism back-"
"When? Don't you mean if?" he reminded her.
"Ugh!" Katherine squirmed even more, but she froze when she heard Damon kick a door open.
"Special delivery for Caroline Forbes!" Damon announced and tossed Katherine's luggage off to the side, then dumped Katherine's reluctant body onto Elena's old bed.
Caroline furrowed her eyebrows as her jaw dropped, looking back and forth between the human doppelganger and her least favorite Salvatore. "What the hell do you think you're doing?! I never signed for this." She gestured to a grimacing Katherine.
"Well, just so you know, I never asked for an ex-head cheerleader to be my babysitter and I definitely didn't ask to go to college." Katherine flipped her hair and gave Damon a look of contempt.
"Well," Damon smirked at the brunette. "It's either the ex-head cheerleader or the Stefan-look-a-like who has a place reserved on his wall for your head."
Katherine narrowed her eyes at him. "Fine. I'll stay with Blondie."
"Look at you, Kat, playing well with others," Damon teased and headed for the door.
"Wait a second!" Caroline appeared in the doorway, blocking Damon's exit.
"What do you want?"
"Damon! I never consented to this!" She pointed straight at the pouting human on Elena's bed.
"Who said I needed your permission?" Damon attempted to walk around Caroline, but she stepped in his way every time, crossing her arms.
She narrowed her eyes at him. "Who says I won't kick her out on her ass and leave her on the streets?"
Damon firmly gripped Caroline's shoulders, causing her eyes to widen. He brought her in closer, his piercing blue eyes sending intensity towards her own. "Caroline, do you remember how much it hurt when you found out your best friend died? Do you remember how many hours you and Elena spent holding each other while you guys cried your eyes out?"
Caroline had a solemn countenance as she listened to Damon's harsh words. "Yes."
"Here's the deal: I'm going to go rescue your best friend from the other side, so the least you could do is feed and protect that one." Damon pointed his thumb over his shoulder in Katherine's direction.
"What are you talking about?" Caroline questioned. "Don't play games with me, Damon. Not about this-"
"Do you think I would joke about this? I know how much this is tearing Elena up inside. Too many people have died in her life. She's lost so much… but she's not losing Bonnie. Not again. Not if I can help it."
"Damon, wait. What are you gonna do? You're not a witch and you're not a miracle worker-"
"Caroline, I may not be able to shoot fire from my fingertips, but I have been known to perform miracles from time to time, so don't ever underestimate my vast knowledge of miracles." He attempted to leave once again, but she still refused to let him pass. "You know, if I really wanted to I could bulldoze right over you, me walking around you was just a common courtesy."
"Just tell me one thing: what's your plan?"
Damon gave her a mischievous grin. "Silas."
"Silas?!" Katherine and Caroline screamed.
Damon brought a hand to his lips, whispering as he looked back and forth at the two women. "Guys! Shhh! Inside voices."
"You're teaming up with Silas?" Katherine bit out. "How can you trust that monster? Damon, he's trying to kill me."
"I'm fully aware, Kat, but if we have any chance at beating him, we need the witch and no one will be able to kill anyone because everyone is too busy sobbing over her death."
"What about Qetsiyah? She wants Silas dead more than any of us."
"Qetsiyah can't be trusted. Didn't you see what she did to Stefan? We're bound to piss her off at some point and I would prefer to not see her rip out another Petrova's heart. Do you agree?"
Katherine rolled her eyes as she crossed her arms over her chest. Caroline sighed, accepting the plan. There was no way in hell that she would ever put her faith in Silas, but this was Bonnie they were talking about.
"Okay, have fun ladies!" Damon took off in a flash, this time using the window behind Katherine.
Katherine locked eyes with Caroline as the room grew silent. "So when's the next party?"
"You're not going to any college parties." Caroline walked past her and began opening several drawers.
"Why not?" Katherine pushed herself off the bed and began hovering over Caroline's shoulder, completely disregarding her personal space. "I thought that parties were like your thing. Oh, and please don't tell me ever since I turned you, you spent the entire time crying about the curse of being a vampire like Elena because I may shoot someone if you do."
Caroline snapped her head up and released a sigh before turning to look Katherine in the eye. "Actually, I haven't."
"Oh, no? Are you saying that you're part of the very exclusive vampire club in Mystic Falls that loves being what you are? You love being a vampire?" Katherine raised her brows.
"So what if I do?"
Katherine beamed as she nodded her head at the blonde approvingly. "My, my, Caroline Forbes. Huh."
"I knew there was something about you. The reason why I chose you. It could've been anyone that I handed over to Klaus, yet I chose you. Poor, sweet Caroline. Elena Gilbert's close friend- not her best friend just her friend." Caroline closed her eyes, feeling the all-too-familiar jab in her heart. "The girl who lived in her best friend's shadow her entire life. The girl who no one ever chose. Not guys. Not your friends. Not even your own mother. Tragic, isn't it?"
"Things are different now," Caroline spat. "You don't know me. I've changed-"
"Because you're a vampire, right? I changed your life. Do you ever wonder what would've become of you if I hadn't come to town? You never would've become part of Elena's inner circle in her web of lies. You never would've become Stefan's best friend. Damon would've killed you by now. You probably would've drifted away from Bonnie and Elena while they continued to be as close as ever. You never would've met that dog… what was his name again?"
"Right, he never would've been your boyfriend, much less your friend. You probably would've ended up with the blonde quarterback, you know, Elena's leftovers-"
"Are you done?" Caroline snapped. "Or are you forgetting that right now, I am the one holding your life in my hands? If you push me enough, I will personally hand you over to Silas. You may have been the reason why I turned into a vampire, but that does not excuse you for trying to ruin my life or Matt's. You didn't care about me. You cared about making Elena's life miserable because she was happy back then and you were alone, and once again she's happy and you're still alone!"
Caroline continued. "I get it; you're miserable because you were forced to become human again and you got dumped! It's a double whammy. Trust me, I know how much it sucks, but don't take it out on me or my friends. You wanna sulk and pour even more salt on your wounds by all means don't let me stand in your way, but don't sleep on my best friend's bed and insult her and try and throw my past in my face when I have even more dirt on you that I could exploit."
Katherine remained silent as she continued to stare into Caroline's blue eyes for a moment. "I knew there was a reason I chose you, Katherine smirked as she sauntered over to Caroline's bed, lying flat on her back, staring up at the white ceiling.
Caroline walked over to her bed and looked down at Katherine. "What are you talking about?"
"You're different. You're nothing like Elena. I mean, obviously being her best friend made you a target, but there was something else about you that called out to me. I could've easily turned the witch, but I chose you, Caroline."
"Is that supposed to make me feel special?" She raised a brow at her.
Katherine sat up to face the blonde. "You're not hearing me. You're like me, Caroline. You're more like me than sweet, innocent Elena."
"That's not true."
"Oh, no? So when I found you, you weren't that insecure, neurotic girl who acted tough by being a bitch when deep down inside you were lonely? Unloved. You're a survivor, Caroline. All good vampires are."
"I'm not like you, Kat," Caroline reproached. "I wouldn't sacrifice my friends just so that I could save myself. I'm not cruel like you."
Katherine stared at her. "Perhaps. Maybe you do have a sense of loyalty to the people you love, but what about the rest of the world? You know, collateral damage. Are you gonna put your neck on the line for them?" Caroline remained silent. "I know you, Caroline. You don't just wanna survive, do you? You want to live. You want to take every moment and hold onto it and enjoy it without having to feel guilty for being happy. You wanna take advantage of every opportunity and never look back. Deep down you know that you're not this perfect little angel that Elena wants you to be because guess what? You're not Elena and that's a good thing."
Katherine and Caroline whipped their heads around in the direction of the door way, seeing a handsome male with dark skin standing in the open doorway.
Katherine lifted an eyebrow. "Who the hell are you?"
"Jesse!" Caroline scrambled over to the doorway, closing the door half-way. "Listen, now is not exactly a good time."
Jesse looked back and forth between the two girls with a confused expression on his face."
"What's going on in here?"
"Nothing!" Caroline feigned a smile. "Just girl stuff- which means no boys aloud. Talk to you later!" She began pushing him out the door by the shoulder.
"Hold on!" Jesse held onto her forearm, stopping in his tracks. He leaned in to whisper into her ear. "Look, about what happened yesterday. I know that I was out of line and I probably upset you so I want to apologize-"
"Already forgotten!" Caroline interrupted. "There's no point in talking about it because it's in the past now. Thanks for dropping by!" She attempted to push him out the door once again, but he planted his feet into the floor once more.
"Before I go, I wanted to invite you guys to the party tonight." He handed her an orange flier decorated in Halloween themes.
Caroline looked down at the flier for a moment and looked back up to Jesse. "Gee. Thanks. Sounds fun but Elena and I-"
"We'll be there!" Katherine announced from her seat on the bed.
Caroline whipped her head around to glare at Katherine.
"See you guys there." He waved before turning on his heel and exiting their dorm.
"So who's the hottie?" Katherine asked innocently.
Caroline crossed her arms over her chest. "I can't believe you got me into this mess."
"So you're mad because you have to babysit me at a college party or because you have to go see what's-his-face?" Katherine studied Caroline's face, seeing shame written all over her features. "You feel guilty... why?"
"Why do you care?" Caroline snapped.
Katherine shrugged. "Pure boredom. Let me guess: you feel guilty because you just broke up with your last boyfriend and it's too soon for you to even think about being with another guy and you still have lingering feelings for your ex, which means you have no right to be happy and meet new guys."
"What makes you an expert?"
Katherine scoffed. "Please. It's a classic. The whole 'should I or shouldn't I' concept. You wanna know what I think?"
"Do the thing that makes you happy... and do it while you still have the chance because life is cruel."
Caroline watched Katherine stare off into the distance as if she were reflecting on a tragic memory. "Katherine?"
Katherine slowly turned to meet Caroline's stare. "Take it from me. I let the best thing that has ever happened to me slip away five hundred years ago because I let fear get in the way. He gave me his word that he would save me... and I didn't believe him. I abandoned him."
"Elijah," Caroline let the word slip past her lips like it was the most obvious thing in the world. She'd almost forgotten that Elijah had been the person who broke up with Katherine; he was probably the only person in the world who could say that. "He's loved you for over five hundred years, not once ever falling for anyone else... Elena told me."
"You know, for such a good little girl she certainly gossips a lot." Katherine jumped off the bed and leaned her back against the wall, facing Caroline.
"Why did he break up with you?"
"Ask Elena. After her little chat with Elijah, he wanted nothing to do with me. Do you know how close I was at happiness? Elijah was my happy ending and the poster child for the most annoying vampire in history managed to rip it away from me within five minutes."
"Well, you must've done something-"
"I didn't do anything!" Katherine yelled.
Caroline used her vampire speed to grip Katherine's shoulders, holding her in place. "Calm down. I understand how upset you are, but if you miss Elijah so much why did you stay in town? Why didn't you follow him? At least fight for what you have."
"Are you kidding me? Where ever Elijah goes, his siblings will follow soon enough. It doesn't matter what they say. Klaus and Rebekah may be stubborn dick heads, but they'll reunite eventually. They always do. Elijah can't control Klaus, and Rebekah will find a way to kill me if given enough time, not to mention the fact that that town is just crawling with vampires that want my head. Even if I tried, I wouldn't even be able to get within a yard of Elijah."
"I'm sorry, Kat."
"Forget it." Katherine walked around Caroline and began unloading her luggage. "Don't you have a college party to get ready for? I'll just unpack while you take a shower."
Caroline stared at the brunette's back for a long moment before she forced herself to move towards the bathroom.
