"You seem to think I care about what you have planned. I don't. I just want you...gone....you know, this was supposed to be my time to torment my brother but instead we're forced to see what's going on," Damon said even when pressed against the tree. Though it did hurt, he was faster than others.
"And tell him what I'm doing? No...the unknown part is always the best. I may even be up for helping," Damon said not quitting as he gave that look.
"Suppose it's too late to tell you to write a pro cons list. I'm sure there's Savlatore for whatever need you want," Madison couldn't help but tease. Standing up she flipped through her closet finding a yellow and white sun dress. "May I?"
She froze for a moment when she described that. "Half way and then there's something saying...bad idea...I mean does this matter? I won't be staying here."
Of course the older of the Salvatore had to get involved with Elijah. Now with his brother being in town, Nik had to work faster in his plans. [b "And what would it matter to you? Can't I have fun in coming home after many years of not being back?"] He shot at the one known as the "bad" brother.
They were in public which meant he had to keep his temper, but his eyes remained on the passerbys. When it came down to just him and Damin, Klaus grabbed the man by the throat and flashed them into the alley, him held against the wall. [b "Keep out of my plans. If you don't both you and your brother will die extrememly painful deaths. I will make sure of it."] The man said, squeezing Damon's throat more tightly.
[b "You will tell no one about our little meeting here today."]
That was true. Matt did seem very paranoid when it came to Damon and Klaus. It was actually the only thing he talked about as of late and wanting to figure out what brought them to their small town. According to the boy, both seemed like they were bad news.
Quickly she shook her head. [#be5cf5 "I know this is a bad idea with them...but I can't seem to stop myself either. I'm like I said drawn in by them. Also that might not be too bad."] Teagan teased Madi with a wink as she could definitely admit both the brothers were HOT!
[#be5cf5 "That murky feeling with Klaus...is it like you are drawn in? That you somehow say things you don't mean to or don't think out? Maybe this isn't all an accident.."] She said quietly
"Sometimes it can be. Right now it's so awkward with Matt. He's just so paranoid about Damon and Klaus, right now," Madison shrugged. It wasn't as if she was looking to enter a relationship right now.
"Brothers might not be the best thing to dip your toes into. You know, if you dump one and date the other you'll see them both naked," Madi said before finding that statement odd. "I don't know...Klaus is interesting to talk to but there something...murky about him."
Damon didn't even wait for Stefan to leave, instead he came to Klaus while he was still in public.
"I met your brother the other day. What a stiff. He's very interested in what you're doing here," Damon said leaning against the wall. "We're all dying to know what you're doing here. Maybe literally."
[#be5cf5 "You know these parties by the lake are always nice. And I REALLY like having you there too."] Teagan said with a pout as she was pulling her hair into a messy bun and then froze. Her cheeks flushed and she looked away. Was it really that obvious?
Well since Madi as usual was being her observant self, there was no need to try and lie or get out of it. It never worked anyway. [#be5cf5 "It's weird... I find that around them I'm me...but at the same time I'm not. There is like this draw I can't fight. Especially around Stefan."] The girl said, sitting on the foot of the bed in front of her friend.
[#be5cf5 "So which guy are you more fond on?"] She asked as she tilted her head, brown eyes on the other.
Stefan spent the time recounting the detail from memory. It was memories of another time, times he'd like to forget. A time before Lexie when he had been a ripper. There was Klaus but he wasn't even bothering with them.
"You never take me anywhere," Damon complained on Saturday. The storms had cleared and it was now back to being hot.
"Because you'll try to eat them," Stefan said before sighing. "Fine, come but don't do anything."
Damon gave a smirk to him before going up.
On Friday the Texan came out giving the financial aid people a good half hour yelling. It resulted in some results and someone above them helping her find some solutions, she would go to school. She wouldn't pay more because of her situation.
"Sorry, I really can't go. I'm helping a small group of foster kids with their SATs, which is like therapy and wisdom teeth pulling," Madison said sitting on her bed. "Oh...I like that blue pull over. Really trying to impress Stefan, or Damon. Or even both?"
She gave a grin at that, Klaus had been once or twice, and she was having a hard time keeping her mind elsewhere.
Klaus looked to the window when she had stood up. The clouds were rolling in and it seemed so was the storm they had been hearing so much about. [b "That's quite alright. I didn't mind listening."] He said as he pulled his gaze from the window and offered the girl a smile.
Soon, the man went out to his car and stood beside it as it did appear there was some trouble with it. Easily he could have just run home but Nik figured he could use this to his advanatage and try to get to know the girl more. He had no idea why he was even doing any of this. Why she drew him in so.
Teagan smiled to Stefan and nodded. [#be5cf5 "I can definitely introduce you as a friend. Might get some of them to behave."] The girl said quietly as she looked down at her sketch again, looking at it thoughtfully with his words.
[#be5cf5 "Mind showing me where the lqce can be added?"] She asked as she pushed the pad to him and the pencil.
"Yeah, he's basically an asshole, but what's done is done," Madison taking a seat close to him before shrugging. "If she thinks it will help, so be it. There is a whole lot better uses of my time than worrying about. This should be fun, either way."
Taking this moment from the edge to a smile, letting it go she glanced at the window and stood up. "Well, I should get home before that storm hits. Sorry to just unload like that. Still adjusting."
"This must be how Stefan feels," Damon said thoughtfully before giving a wave. Enough of being around an Original.
"Friends, I can do the friends part," Stefan nodded. It seemed that he was in the verge of making friends, last time it has been Lexie back in the 80's. Looking to the sketches again he looked thoughtful. "I would change that to lace. lace was a gift and treasure at that time."
It was amazing how just those few moments and the Salvatore made him think of his own brother. Not nearly as dark or "twisted" as the term he was sure could be used. But there were still the similarities, subtle as they were.
"Ah, fair enough. And thank you, I shall be keeping that in mind." The man said, rising himself. He then couldn't help a chuckle at Damon's question of him and "Klaus" being brothers. "Yes, Nik and I are brothers. Though everyone when they meet us ask just as you have done." And truly the man was amused.
Her head tilted when he mentioned old readings and books. But slowly she nodded. It would definitely be a good reason to be so sure of the clothing and whatever else.
[#be5cf5 "Well you and I are starting to become friends.. Or at least not strangers anymore. So I guess depends how you wanted me introducing you to the others."] Tea said with a small smile as she took a sip from the soda that had been almost forgotten when she had been drawing.
Klaus listened to the girl with interest as she spoke. And when the prank had been mentioned, the man found a surge of anger, one he would have to control go through him. It has even taken him off his guard when he had felt it as usually he would not care about someone he just net. But he did about her words for some reason.
[b "So her son is a piece of work.. And now she does things to 'help her sleep at night'? Interesting to say the least there, love."] The man said quietly.
"Yeah, I think I'm good. Story time can wait for later. I can tell you that if you want to make this grand entrance. It would be at the Lockwood manor in three weeks," Damon rose, paying for his drinks . "Are you sure you're brothers?"
He and Stefan was different but not exactly like this either. This was his return and this was cramping it.
"Introduce me as what?" Stefan asked before chucking. "Just read a lot more and old movies. Especially old movies."
She seemed to enjoy this and Damon was not around to ruin it. some time today he might but not right now.
"It's actually out of pity. I thought I was going to prom with Tyler, her son, instead it was a terrible joke. Matt made it bearable and punched him. And when Tabitha, my old foster mom heard, chewed her out for thinking it was okay because I was 'lower'," ! Madison said , though surprised at her openness.
"I guess she heard the story and has been very nice since then and 'you're a brave girl' which is code for 'you're doing great even if you're demanded '. Whatever helps her sleep at night."
"Then he is trying to keep a low profile but he thinks he may be on to something. This isn't the first time nor do I believe the last time." The man said and fixed the cuff to his suit, dark gaze on the Salvatore brother.
"How about this.. tell me what you know of the Originals and I can fill you in on the rest? If I am right, which I think I may be then we will be working together for awhile."
Her eyes came up when the boy spoke and she smiled faintly. [#be5cf5 "Seems like you were there with how sure you sound.. And I know that. This drawing was more for fun than for work. Here's the others."] The girl said as she turned the book to Stefan so he could flip through it.
A soft laugh escaped the girl before she could help it. [#be5cf5 "Or that saying you'll come and maybe I can introduce you to everyone?"]
His question did sound odd when he thought about it. But the man had been curious and so had asked. It wasn't his style to be completely careful when he asked things. He was definitely not his brother.
[b "Well you'll figure it out. I've faith that you can. And I am sure Mrs. Lockwood does to have put you on this task."] He said as he smiled at the young woman.
He couldn't help a faint smirk at her next words. [b "You'll just have to wait like everyone else."]
"That's the problem. Nothing. So far he's chasing after a girl, or circling...whatever...threw a big party not even one threat of ripping a heart out," Damon frowned before wondering what the Original was talking about. "What curse?"
This was all strange to him, only being around another Original was not how he wanted to spend his day.
"These are wonderful, though the necklines never went that low. And layers," Stefan chuckled before he could catch himself. He thought about the lake, then the situation. "It would be nice to meet all of the friends, formally."
"I usually do go on my own," Madison answered, finding the question odd. It was both flattering and confusing of what he saw, since she didn't see it. "I'm glad you think so because I have no idea how to deal with normal kids."
She almost have a laugh at that, the adjustment was still hard on her. "You're welcome, I would love to see what you do."
Someone had been asking around for him which naturally had gotten the Original curious. He usually did his best to stay unnoticed. But when this sort of thing happened, Elijah somehow knew that his brother had to be involved somehow, which was never good for those about to become his victims.
"I heard you were asking for me. And as soon as that was the case I figured Niklaus was involved. So aside from him stealing your thunder what has my brother been up to?" If he could get the man to tell him, the more he may be able to do something, or not depending what was needed.
"He's been on the hunt for a way to break his curse.. If he believes that found, then Nik will stop at nothing." It was an after thought really, but Elijah thought it a good thing to note.
[#be5cf5 "Mrs.Lockwood put me in charge of costume design...so trying to do some of the costumes in this book before actually working on them. And drawing helps distract me."] The girl admitted, though her drawing looked like something Stefan could have in the old clothing and a young woman at his side. Honestly she didn't know how or why she had made him into the model for the guys.
[#be5cf5 "Maybe you should go. The lake's one of the more beautiful and peaceful places in town. Get you out for a little bit."] The girl teased with a smile.
[b "When you choose to leave town will you be going alone?"] Klaus asked, curiously. [b "And I do believe that you'll fo amazing with the games and activities. You have a flare about you."] Not at all was it meant to be odd or creepy. He just had meant he was sure that she would be good with the children and the games.
A smile did come to his lips when she had given the praise that she had. [b "Thank you love. That means something. I think she also wanted it on auction."]
Damon would never get involved in this. Ever since he had been human he had given open disdain to these events. However, being a Salvatore he was welcomed on the Founder Families committee, all of them of them not knowing what he was.
It had been hard to find the Original, but once he asked around for a suit wearing, brother of a Klaus he had came to him.
Damon waited for him fifteen minutes outside of the town before spotting him. "Surprised you came...we have a Klaus problem...I like to be the center of the attention and he's taking it all. The bastard."
"What are you sketching there?" He asked curiously. Sitting next to her he smiled. He made it a point to keep an eye out for her and why Klaus was so interested in her friend. "That depends on the weather, but maybe."
"I guess it means I'm good with kids. I don't know but it should be fun," Madison shrugged. It was strange with that feeling, as well as Matt's new found obsession with these new people. "Mm, not really, I'll need to do some research. Good thing I need to go to Whitmore to angry 'y'all' them."
There was a friend around there he could help and she could use a day break from this place.
"That sounds perfect. I really liked seeing your work," she said smiling to him, meaning that.
[b "She said that the group was short handed and could use the help. And I thought this a nice way to get to meet some of those in the town. Children's games? Have you any in mind?"] The man asked as he picked up one of the clipboards from the table to look at the list.
When he saw the names on it, the man did stiffen but in a second regained himself. He should have known his brother would get involved somehow as would the Salvatores. [b "I was asked to help with art and music."] He said as he returned the clipboard.
Tea sat at a table later at The Grill and gave a faint smile. [#be5cf5 "I wondered when you would be around again.. So do you plan to go to the lake?"] The girl asked as she was looking at a sketch book she had open in front of her. Mrs.Lockwood had her in charge of costuming and dress for the parade. And later she would help Madi with kid games at least.
"I can't even get a lot of financial aid. Just may need to get Texas on their ass about discrimination," Madison muttered before shaking her head. With the less than amazing gourmet food and some drinks she sat down next to him and nodded. "That sounds lovely."
"So, I see Mrs. Lockwood roped you in too," Madison chuckled approaching Klaus. Seeing him at the first meeting was a shock. "What does she want you to do? I get to help with the kid games and activities. Which should be fun."
There was already a storm brewing thanks to the newest hurricane.
Damon took off again that next day and didn't come back for two days later. Stefan asked but he didn't get an answer. There was some college co eds though at the house. He wasn't sure how they kept their very old furniture cleaned.
Of course he had found Tea later at the grill. "I was just very flirted with, and invited to the lake this Saturday, if this hurricane doesn't lighten up. It's nice for a summer though."
