It was a bipolar feeling when with him and without. Some parts were beginning to bleed over the next while. With him, she felt shell shedding off and it was easier to be more passionate with him. She had even learned painting, and read more during free time.
"Did he really have to make my lease expire? I mean...I really liked that apartment," Madison looked to her clothes. They were very few and needed some replacing. The thought of Teagan dying in her place made her heart double in pace.
"She doesn't...and I'm not worth it...Can't we just give Damon a false lead for this Moonstone? And you look for this weapon?"
It had been since the sixties that he had felt like this. Damon hated himself and right now was struggling to just rip out Klaus' heart but physically and mentally he could not.
"That's something that is not happening," Damon growled before knowing he had to find a way to help his brother. Or whatever else they'd do. "They're going to the lake house now."
And he did it again, damnit...he needed to be locked away, despite not wanting that.
It had taken the elder Salvatore brother a shorter time than he had expected for him to figure what he had done to him. And to say the least it made Klaus realise that he was more clever than he had originally thought. No matter hw still did have his little snitch and a smirk crossed his lips.
[b "So your brother has found another doppleganger and it was her little friend. You do realise I intend to make her into the sacrifice so that way I can keep Madison alive. Also I look forwards to your trying to get me back for this. It'll keep things interesting. As to my brother I will deal with him."] The man said, seeming unphased. This meant that he had gotten what he wanted and he would not be killing Madison afterall.
Elijah had been listening to Niklaus and Damon from a room across the hall as he seemed to be reading. For a while he had suspected a snitch amongst the group but had not been sure of the who or the why. The little conversation that he had heard proved his point and now he had to let Madison, Stefan and Teagan know. But first he would go up to Madison and let her know.
Setting his book aside, Elijah flashed up the stairs and stood in the doorway watching as she unpacked. "I have a little bit of news for you. Remember we thought Niklaus had an informant? Well it appears we were correct on those grounds. Damon had been compelled to tell him everything. He knows you know and I compelled you..he also now knows your friend may also be a doppleganger and will go for her as not to kill you." The man said quickly and quietly
"I'm not exactly sure why or how it's rare. Only this means if he finds out...you'll be the target if he wants to keep her alive," Stefan said grimly before pulling her to him. "Thank you for inviting me."
It took two weeks to know that he had been compelled that first encounter with Klaus. Now he couldn't tell anyone, and when something happened he knew about, he told Klaus. He was going to a form of hell just for that.
While Madison was inside packing there was Damon. When her lease came up early she had to move in.
"Two things...your doppelganger knows what we do, Suits compelled her to forget when you're around. Two Stefan is pretty hush-hush about something with Teagan. Think he said the 'd' word once," Damon said feeling his mouth go tart. "Don't think I won't get you for this. I'm not a snitch...not without a purpose."
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.
