Klaus had Elijah pinned to the wall and had threatened the dagger or even ripping his heart out. That of course was before Madison had come to the kitchen. The man still did not know of her knowing anything and was attempting to keep her in the dark. So he let his brother go and had gone back to where he had left his coffee.
Elijah was straightening the ruffled collar of his suit and shot Klaus a glare. One that told his brother to behave. And once he had, the man returned to the stove to cook what he had planned on before Nik had decided their usual little fight was a good idea.
"And what tally would that be, Madison?" Elijah asked as she was going for milk, clearly being used to this fights between them.
The girl bit her lip as she had been washing a knife and managed to cut her finger. She had been distracted by his words and was quick to rinse the cut and try and get the bleeding to stop.
[#be5cf5 "So..what exactly are dopplegangers? I know look alikes and what Klaus needs..but why are they a big thing?"]
Shower time was her refuge. And oddly she loved this bathroom, it was spacious and the tub had been a very good time the day before. Those thoughts made her feel really odd.
Coming down, dressed and ready to leave. There was some work, at least she thought, she sometimes got confused. "I'm sorry I missed the start of another fight, I'm getting close to that tally."
Going for some milk she was used to this.
"If I am right, then she's not the only one that's in trouble. In fact...You'll be in grave danger," Stefan frowned leaning against the porch. "I don't know but you may be a doppelganger as well."
This only added to the pile that was growing.
The girl had not understood why Stefan seemed as if he had seen a ghost or something. It had only been the quickest of glimpses but it had been there. But the girl had not gotten a chance to even ask because her mother was hovering most the time.
Dinner had been nicer than most brcause for the night it wasn't just her and her mother. And the woman did most the talking. Tea was content to listen but had kept most her attention on the vampire..
[#be5cf5 "Are you sure that you're doing okay? You've seemed quiet...and I mean even more so than school and when taking you to the lake.."] She whispered as she was clearing the dishes and going to wash them.
[b "How do they even come up with those stereotypes then?"] Nik found himself asking when she had explained. But she was also off to the shower before he could ask anything else either. He would get his way and he would join her in Texas. That did happen to be a part of his new plan.
And soon, the man was dressed and had gone to the kitchen to talk to Elijah. He just knew a babysitter would be needed in his brother's eyes. As expected, there was the usual debate between the brothers and Elijah was again reminding him how controlling he was being. And he was reminding his brother how he didn't care. One of their ever famous yelling matches even.
That had not been her name when he had known her. In fact it had been fifteen years before under an entirely different faces. There was no denying that was Annabelle just by her expression and those glinting eyes.
"May I have a glass of water, please?" He asked pulling out his cell phone. When it was free he took some pictures before rejoining Teagan. First he'd be sure before telling her this.
The dinner was delightful even if he was distracted the whole time.
"That sterotype about Texan guys are all wrong, you know. They were rancher hats mostly, not cowboy, there's a big difference. Some plaid but definitly aren't from a romance novel cover. And tend to be mama's boys that are Baptists," she said with a small shrug.
Kissing his cheek she started towards the bathroom to shower. After a long night of working, and then with him she needed it. Before she got food.
The counter that the girl had given had been a good one. He had not expected the girl to come back at him. Or rather not so quickly. And so that had him amused for the moment. At least until she answered about the going to Texas.
[b "I just thought it would be nice to know that you were leaving."] Klaus countered as he watched her. It seemed that her mind was elsewhere. Probably with hos brother as the other man did seek to keep an annoyingly close watch. And since that was the case and Madison seemed busy it was time he had a talk with Elijah.
Tammy had sent Teagan to get some drinks for them. And it was while the girl was out of the room did the woman move closer and look at the photos and the woman that Stefan asked about. "That's Teagan's great-great grandmother on her father's side, Sarah." The woman explained. Though she dif not understand the boy's seeming interested.
"It still is. I know that's me with only sheets on," Madison countered with an easy smile. Rising she gave a stretch. The part about Texas still did not fully make sense when with him.
"Hm, I wasn't aware we were at that stage. The plans aren't made yet but probably really soon," she said slowly rising out of bed to go and shower. Her thoughts were already drifting to Elijah and food since they coincided.
Stefan thought of his own mom at this time. Would she have felt this same way? He gave a nod and followed her in.
"It's a pleasure to meet you as well," he said shaking her hand and smiled. Looking through the photo albums. The faces didn't pop out. BUt one woman was extremely familiar, only poses and actions. "Who was this?"
When he mentioned his brother, Teagan could not help stiffening slightly. The girl had NOT mentioned him to her mother and she REALLY did not plan on it. [#be5cf5 "My mother would kill me...so no he is a forbidden topic."] Her words were barely above a whisper as she spoke them as she knew her mother to be hovering somewhere nearby.
[#be5cf5 "Honestly I'm not sure. It's a lot to think about and wrap your head around. That everything you ever have been told growing up is true.."] Still her words were soft as she spoke them. And when he noted the photo album, the girl was about to go to it, but her mother now came flouncing in.
"You must he Stefan. Tea's just finally told me who she has been spending all this time with. But she left out how cute you were." Tammy said with a smile. And then the woman went to the photo album and brought it over. "This has been in our family for a very long time. It actually dates back..well you'll see. You're more than welcome to look."
Teagan's cheeks were a dark red as she looked to Stefan and mouth the word 'sorry' to him.
He had quite enjoyed the time with her. Gotten to know her quite well. And this has been constand enough that she even had her own half to the bed. [b "It's not mean. It is called having something nice for myself."] The man returned, still amused and even in wonder how this had been kept up.
Klaus listened to her words and stiffened. Madison had not mentioned Texas or anything to him. [b "And when did you intend to tell me that you were leaving?"] He asked, trying to keep his voice level.
"Wise not mentioning the other brother then," Stefan mused dryly. Damon had been Damon, since he had stepped in. It was hard not knowing what the plans were. "How have you been holding up? It's big news."
Stepping in he looked around, before spotting a photo album."May I?" He asked. It was a strange liking of the past.
"Even if it's about me? That's mean," Madison stretched before yawning. She didn't ask what this was, only that she enjoyed this. Even had her side of the bed when she was here.
"I'm covering for Carrie for the weekend. She just asked for it this week, and she'll cover for me when I go to Texas."
Had she mentioned that? She wasn't sure but she hoped so.
The girl had invited him over for a dinner because she wanted to be able to spend more time with him. That and the parting had been much harder than she would have thought. Weird because she usually didn't get so attached or so quickly. But she had to admit that he was a good guy and even her mother had commented on such when he had left.
[#be5cf5 "I'm glad you agreed to come. Mom's been nagging me about meeting you."] The girl said with a soft smile as she gently took the flowers from him and kissed his cheek. She then led him inside.
As the days passed, Klaus spent more and more time qith the young woman. It was natural and in its way the only thing to keep the man sane. And the sex too was amazing and became second nature. Everything about her was alluring and not at all like others.
It was one morning did she wake and turn in the blankets to glance at him as he sat painting. A smirk and chuckle slipped from him. [b "I won't show you. But this is something for me. And you may wake to it more often than not."] He teased the girl, faintly
If she was any other female she might think something else of that. In the oblivious state, she had no clear plans other than getting into school, where she did, didn't matter. Except for Texas.
She felt less awkward this time, after all, it had been done before. After a week sex felt free and natural when around him, and a little sickening without. She spent at least four nights there with a feeling it would be a lot more then.
Waking up to the sound of painting she rolled over moving the blanket around her. "So instead of waking up to a neighbors microwave, it's now the smell of oil paints. And you won't even show me what it is."
"I can take you home. There's probably not going to be another dance out of me, not unless there's some magic in the air," Stefan smiled. He did take her home, acted the gentleman and at the door kissed her again.
This lasted a whole lot longer than that one. Parting was hard, but being invited over for a dinner was good though.
He came over with flowers and smiled to her kissing her cheek. "Thank you for having me."
Hearing the laugh no matter how small made the girl smile. It was a nice sound to hear and somehow she was sure there was WAY more behind it. But for one night she could let it all slide and try and salvage the night.
God she had wanted to let the kiss last longer. Had wanted to even let him kiss her. But she didn't as she figured it had been a rash choice on her part and she may have pushed things. So that had been why she was quick to pull away and offer the tour.
[#be5cf5 "I would like that..maybe you would even want to stay for a little while..?"]
After so long, suits and the likes had become easy for him to get out. And it had not taken him long at all. But he could see that she was not used to the dress, but to see she did manage to get out without tearing it was very impressive. Even he would have gotten inpatient and just ripped the thing.
[b "It looked beautiful on you. There weren't any more beautiful. And perhaps you may have more chances."] The words were thoughtful and soon his arms were around her waist as he returned her kiss and had them moved not long after to the bed. This was the part of the night Klaus was most looking forwards to
Stefan gave a small laugh if she only knew how many times they had snapped each other's neck or thrown each other. Patience was nothing on that and right now he was ready to snap his neck again.
The kiss was surprising but he liked it, only there wasn't time to return it. He took the tour, despite having seen this in the 60's.
"May I take you home?" He asked with a smile.
"It's alright, the prom dress felt like a rubiks cube," Madison chuckled smiling at the kiss. She loved how that felt and watched him undress himself. Somehow she got out of the dress without tearing it. That was impressive.
"I love the dress, this is probably the only chance of wearing something like this and a big house. Not that I'm looking for that..." She said a small chuckle before kissing him wrapping her arm around his neck.
Tea couldn't help a soft laugh as the boy had said what he did about punching his brother. [#be5cf5 "I'm actually surprise it didn't come sooner. He is a bit much and you have the patience of a saint.."] The girl said as she pushed hrself to standing back up right and turned to face Stefan.
A soft smile was across her lips and slowly she moved closer and kissed him. [#be5cf5 "I wanted to thank you.."] She whispered as she moved back and held a hand out to him again. The girl wanted to take him towards the garden and show him her favourites that she used to hide among when she would be baby sat by Mrs.Lockwood.
Klaus had been already been out of the jacket of the suit he had been wearing and was watching the girl with the dress. And he would not help being amused that she was struggling with the zipper. But he had to remind himself that though fashionable in her way she was not used to extravagence like the dress he had sent her. And in a moment he was behind her and helping her unzip the dress.
[b "I'm sorry. I should have chosen something that would not trap you as this did. But I still could not get over how ravishing this looked on you."] The man said as he let his hand linger on the zipper and had given her shoulder a kiss before he moved back to let her get out of the dress fully.
"It still wasn't the best way to...have this night that you deserve...After all this it's our first sort of date. And I punch my brother twice..." Stefan said gave a soft scuff. "Either way I'm glad we're having this night. It's good to have nights like these."
It was about to get darker and brutal, and he would protect her at all costs.
"Yes, we shall," Madison smiled ignoring the small buzzing in her head. This would be the start of something with them.
In his room she struggled with even finding the zipper having never worn anything like this before. Her prom dress was far more simple. "Um, could I get some help getting out of this dress?" She asked. Now she was certain she was not this sort of girl.
Elijah had given a faint smile. "And I look forward to having someone other than just Nikalus to spend time around." The man said and gave her own cheek a light kiss before he watched her go back to Nik.
Klaus had been inpatient but it seemed to die down when the girl had come back. [b "He has always been the 'good' brother. But I am glad to know that you like to be around me. I know I quite enjoy being around you."] He said and offered his arm to the girl.
[b "Shall we?"]
The girl knew he was in a bit of a mood. It wasn't what one would call noticeable but he did seem cooler and more sullen. And so she led him out onto the balchony and leaned over to white stone with her eyes looking out over the estate.
[#be5cf5 "I don't blame you for it. And I'm sorry too. I don't know what it is but I am two different people when around the both of you... I shouldn't encourage or challenge him like I do...So maybe I don't deserve it. You're a great guy..."] She said softly. That wasn't her saying she wanted Damon, but it was her apologising for the thing she did.
