Well, since all my DELENA fantasies are coming to pass, I am starting to fixate a little plus on KLAROLINE. This is set in episode 4x07 during the Miss Mistic Falls competition.
"Life use to be a lot easier" Klaus mused. "Don't toi miss the days of being," he opened a tri-folded piece of paper, "'Chair of the Mistic Falls beautification committee and the director of-"
Caroline's eyes widened. "Is that my Miss Mistic application?! Where did toi get that?!" She grabbed for the sheet but failed as Klaus continued.
"'When I am chosen, I entend to redefine excellence'. Now I'm really enjoying your use of 'when' here, it's very confident."
"Mmm" Caroline nodded, embarrassed.
"'And above all, I promise to aspire, inspire and perspire'. Obviously we found the shortage of words ending in 'spire'." Klaus was laughing at her.
"Yeah, that's very funny", Caroline was trying unsuccessfully to grab the paper from him. "It's hilarious," she a dit sarcastically. "Just give the-"
Klaus held out the paper behind him with a look challenging her to try grabbing it from him again.
Suddenly a smile and laugh broke out of Caroline's mouth.
(Now this is where the story begins to deviate from what happened in the episode...)
Slowly the smile faded from her face as she looked up again into his eyes. Klaus' smile. This playful Klaus, the one he had never shown before. Not that she knew of anyway. That was when it hit her, all in a flash, a thought that only took up the span of one instant: Klaus may have come into town being the evil villain, threatening everyone, being the so called 'big bad' to get something he desperately wanted. He wanted a family, people who he could depend on. It was a wish that was so close to his cœur, coeur that he was willing to give anything. He didn't know her ou the rest of them then.
Was he so different from her? Wasn't it her that struck a deal to sacrifice one of his hybrids to free Elena from her insanity. Without a thought, she agreed to end the life of someone that she didn't know. She really didn't care, just so long as Elena was okay.
Things suddenly were muddled. No longer black and white. No longer completely clear what was good and what was evil. How could she hold him to the standards which she didn't even hold herself to.
"You gave up one of your hybrids for me," she began, "Something that meant a lot to toi as toi can't make any plus of them right now. Just for a rendez-vous amoureux, date with me."
His playful look became one of curiosity. He was wondering where she was going with this.
"A life for a little bit of my time. toi must think a lot of me to believe that that was a fair trade."
Klaus believed that she was about to go off on a rampage of his character but before he could get a word out she continued.
"So, what if I want another deal?" She asked.
What was she on about, he pondered.
"What would this 'deal' consist of?"
She steeled herself. "I want that paper back," she answered.
"And what are toi prosing that I get in exchange?" He asked.
She walked toward him, only taking a few steps to close the distance.
"Something I promise toi want." She held out her hand for her application. montrer his faith, he slowly he gave it to her.
Caroline carefully folded it up smaller than it had been and stuffed it between her skin and the strap of her dress. Klaus tilted his head not knowing what to expect.
She looked deeper into his eyes, placed a hand on his cheek, looked down at his lips for a moment before returning to his eyes. She could see his surprise.
And then it happend. She was s’embrasser him. For a second, he wasn't sure what to do but then instinct kicked in and his eyes closed as his arms wrapped around her. It wasn't a quick peck like he thought she would do. It was a lasting soft embrace of two pairs of lips gently pressing together.
He was satisfied with this 'deal' of hers and would not have pushed any further if it hadn't been for her change in breathing. She was struggling to keep it regulated and failed miserably. This was affecting her fiercely.
Klaus made his embrace plus firm, pulling her flush to his body and a soft moan escaped her lips. The Kiss intensified. She encircled his head with her arms, lightly grazing his hair with her finger tips.
But swiftly, however, she inhaled a sharp breath and pushed against his chest to separate them. She was wildly looking around as if confused, looked back up to his eyes and gulped.
Caroline couldn't hold his astonished stare. He had a pleasantly surprised smile on his face as he studied hers.
"I-," she began, "I have to go". Keeping her head down she walked away back toward the celebration.
Klaus didn't chase after her. He didn't have to. There was no taking this back. She wouldn't be able to deny what she's done, what they'd both felt. Caroline had been so determined to hate him but now he had the proof that the mur around her cœur, coeur had weakened. He was slipping in and there was nothing that she could do to stop it.
From a distance, Tyler had watched the whole thing and his blood was boiling...
