Rating: PG

A/N: Written for simply_aly on Klaroline Comment Fic-a-thon

If there was a feeling that Caroline hated more than anything else, it was this.

Guilt.

She simply couldn’t deal well with it, period. It was worse than the feelings of being manipulated or lied to, and it would persistently devour her from the inside until something was done about it. And naturally, just like all other emotions, it became magnified when vampirism took over her life. This was why she had resolved to never hurt anyone deliberately, to never give this feeling a reason to surface. Ever.

But now, much to her dismay, she could feel it gradually building inside her much against her will. The urge to do something about it was so strong, that she had to drink twice more blood in response to lessen the need to lash out at something, or worse, someone. Damon would surely make some snarky remarks about her stealing his stash of sustenance later, but she could deal with that.

The worse thing about this was that she didn’t understand why she was feeling like this. It wasn’t her fault, not technically anyway. They needed a distraction to save Elena and keep the “Let Mama Original take care of her Children once and for all” plan operating, and Damon was right in saying that she was the only one who could do it. So there shouldn’t be anything wrong in her exploiting Klaus’s feelings, or more like, temporary amusement in her, right?  

But then why was she feeling so terrible when Rebekah took the first opportunity in their next meeting to tell her (or more like gloat) that Klaus had burned all the numerous sketches of her he had drawn in the past few weeks. The words hurt despite how much she willed them not to, especially when Rebekah mentioned how her brother would probably never wanted to see her again. Wasn’t this what she wanted, for him to leave her alone for good?

“Nik has little tolerance for those who disappoint him”

Sitting on her bed, Caroline glanced at all the stuff that he had given her, and realized that no matter how much she wanted to, she had not been able to discard any of the presents that he had sent her. Every time she attempted to throw one away, something always stopped her. She didn’t really want to think what that meant for her, or read any more deeply into her own actions than she had to, because she was afraid that if she looked too profoundly into her heart, she might find something forbidding. And the prospect was simply horrifying. Reaching out for the sketch that he had given her, she fingered the brownish piece of paper gently, once again admiring the stunning artwork, and the glorious handwriting on it; Thank you for your honesty

Well, if she was thanked for her honesty, then being honest was what she should do. Besides, she really didn’t want to fight her own feelings like this. Taking out a piece of drawing paper that she used to use for her art class, she took a deep breath and tried her first attempt to sketch a portrait. It was much harder than she thought, and it took her two weeks to finish, and it looked incredibly bad next to the hybrid’s flawless work. But it was the best she could do, and next to the sketch were the words; I'm really sorry. Caroline. She thought about adding the part where she really did not mean to hurt him, but felt that that might be a bit too presumptuous (the sensible part of her still found it very, very hard to believe that someone like her could possibly have any form of effect on an Original like Klaus), so she didn’t. Quietly, she left the note at his door.

A week later, she returned home from school to find another familiar envelope on her bed. Anxiety overwhelmed her as she gently tore open the envelope, once again noting the beautiful handwriting of her name. Inside the envelope, there was another sketch, this time of blooming flowers, and the words;

You’re forgiven, if you'll consent to have dinner with me tonight,

Klaus.

The knot of unease and remorse that had been plaguing her since that incident outside the Grill slowly diminished, becoming more bearable. And Caroline realized that this was what she wanted no, needed, from the very beginning. Whatever complications that Klaus might present to her and her already problematic life, she didn’t want to fight with him. Not like this. Taking a deep breath, this time a more relaxing one, she went to her closet to find a suitable dress for the night.

Thank you so much! XD It kind of break my heart when i see Klaus burning those beautiful pieces of work! So i thought i'd try to write something about this!

5th-Mar-2012 07:42 pm (UTC)
This was really cute! <3 I love how she tries so hard to give him a drawing too.
5th-Mar-2012 09:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I felt that the sketch was a really sincere gift from him, compared too all that dress and jewellery. And the ending for ep 15 makes me feel really sad for them.

Nice. You know, in my head it was very symbolic that he burned his pictures of her, but it didn't really hit me what that would mean, especially for Caroline, until I read this. Good job!

Thank you!

I felt the same way. Compared to the other stuff that klaus gave caroline, i felt that the sketch was much more significant. And him burning them is just...sad. I really hope they get a better ending between them.

PS: Thanks for putting up this ficathon! XD

No prob! I'm really into Klaroline, especially right now. I've been itching to write something but didn't know what so I decided to host it in hopes of getting ideas (which I SO did!). Plus I just couldn't wait until Mar 15.
5th-Mar-2012 09:39 pm (UTC)
Same here! I'm getting dangerously attached to Klaus! He's just such an awesome character, but he IS a bad guy, and if he ever gets killed off or something, my heart would definitely break!
5th-Mar-2012 09:52 pm (UTC)
Ditto. He's my favorite character. He even topped Caroline and Damon. (That sounded kinky, lol).
5th-Mar-2012 11:32 pm (UTC)
haha! Same here! And i kinda have a thing for Klaus/Damon too *cough cough*
6th-Mar-2012 12:59 am (UTC)
For some reason I don't. I like Stefan/Klaus and Damon/Rebekah though. And obviously Caroline/Klaus... and Damon/Caroline and Stefan/Rebekah... and Stefan/Rebekah/Klaus. That's pretty much it though. Oh, and Lexi/Klaus but that's like my wild card ship, lol.

I thought this was lovely and very true to Caroline's personality. She would feel guilty for deliberately hurting Klaus and she would want to make amends.

And of course Klaus would forgive her :)
6th-Mar-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I felt that the drawings were such a significant presents, especially from someone like Klaus, so i decided to write on it. Caroline is such a lovely girl lately! XD

The truth is, I had no idea what I wanted when I posted that prompt--I just liked the lyrics--but you applied it to them in such a compelling way. Caroline deciding not to fight her feelings, whatever they are, for Klaus was brilliant.

And I loved that she drew him, even knowing it wouldn't compare, because it speaks volumes about what kind of relationship they would have. Honesty, reciprocity, forgiveness.

Thank you so much!
7th-Mar-2012 10:55 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! I'm very happy that you like it. Your prompt kind of struck me as the situation that Carolin and Klaus are in, and i felt that it was kinda sad to leave it this way.

Yes, i'm in love with Klaus's drawings! I refused to believe that everything he did fail to touch Caroline's heart at all! XD
8th-Mar-2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
Oooh. I liked it a lot!! I think I might develop a soft spot for those two. (though too bad that I am also madly in love with tylor/caroline ;__;)</p>

Loved the way you portrayed her.

9th-Mar-2012 01:13 am (UTC)
I kinda love this two lately (i have a soft spot for Tyler/Caroline too). I've read some awesome Klaus/Elena fics and love this pairing too, but i must say there's some chemistry between Klaus and Caroline. Urgh, I'm totally falling for Klaus! He suddenly looks good with everyone to me =.=

Thank you! Glad you like! XD
11th-Mar-2012 08:07 pm (UTC)
;_; Oh My Gosh, me too! I really, really like him atm and I feel like I shouldn't...

Love your new layout, btw. (it might be older? idk, I've been going through my flist on my phone for a while now XD)
11th-Mar-2012 11:22 pm (UTC)
Same here! i feel i shouldnt like him so much too. I mean, he's the villain and if the writers decide to kill him off one day, TVD will never be the same for me again =.=

Thanks! I've been using it for a short while (LOL, the beautiful wonders of smartphone ^^).

"You’re forgiven, if you'll consent to have dinner with me tonight,

Klaus."

12th-Mar-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
