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.
For being what he was, Elijah was a stand-up guy, and he was attractive. She looked to him with a smile and kissed his cheek lightly. "Thank you, Elijah. I'm going to look forward to that," she said before going back to Klaus.
"Alright, I think that's everything. He's pleasant," she smiled before thinking on that, having already forgotten. "Still...I like being around you. Haven't figured out fully why yet but I do."
Stefan was in a mood, though his was less pronounced and more sullen. He looked to her letting her lead to where she wanted to go.
"I'm sorry for that scene. We have a long history of fighting over the same woman. I don't know why we do...but I know you deserve to be treated a lot better than he can do."
The girl had not meant to turn this into a thing between the two brothers like that. She actually didn't know what had her answer Damon the way she had other than the fact that she was drawn to him as she was also drawn to Stefan. And when the words passed between the brothers, dark eyes had gone to the ground.
It was when Stefan looked to her and asked if she wanted to go did the girl look up and give a nod. Maybe if she was away from Damon she could clear her head. [#be5cf5 "Anywhere would be nice. Maybe even the gardens?"] She asked as her hand moved into Stefan's, gently tugging him away from Damon.
"I will not let Niklaus hurt you. After today I can see why you would at least go on that limb." He said quietly. The man truly was not sure what he could day. She did seem to have a plan and he would be asking her more about that later.
"It seems I better get you back. My brother is getting jealous and impatient." Elijah said and motioned back to klaus who happened to be watching them rather intently
"Damon," Stefan said with a glare at the man. Stepping forward he made sure that she was a step away before he punched him. "Incredible, stepping in and trying to take her away like that."
Damon just smirked holding his nose. "Just because you don't have the-"
Stefan landed another punch before looking to her. "Do you want to go somewhere?" He asked straightening out.
The moment after Teagan left she had placed the painting up in her bedroom. Even after knowing it was one of her favorite pieces, a piece of her home and she saw that storm every day. It actually helped her feel better.
"Not sure there is a right phrase for this," she said dryly. On her back was a derogatory term, for one. "Um, you'll be there. I don't have a reason to trust you other than helping but I'm willing to go out on that limb."
The man's words as he whispered them into her ear sent chills up and down her spine. It was annoying as hell how she seemed two different people when around the brothers. One it appeared was the softer and more subdued that hardly was seen and when with the other it appealed to the more wild and carefree side of her. One it seemed was too perfect for her and the other a needed challenge. Quickly she had to shaked those thoughts away.
[#be5cf5 "We'll see what ends up happening. But have to admit I'm flattered for the offer."] The girl responded with a faint smirk over her lips, the sass evident behind her words and the spark in her eyes. Oh what was she doing? Why did she react this way?
Elijah should have known the dress part. But the painting had been new. It was not usual for Niklaus to give gifts or ones as personal as paintings unless he had feelings for that person or cared. So that only added to that theory. However, Elijah did not say anything about it.
He did twirl the girl out and bring her in close again, listening to her spoken words. Seemed she was intelligent and witty. Even had a knack for survival. And he was impressed. "For now that may be for the best. If you play along and go with it, you will in a sense be a step ahead of him." The man said quietly.
"Thank you, he actually bought it for me and did a painting," Madison said as they started. Hearing the question, she felt the cobwebs come back and she felt slightly nauseous at the idea of this night.
"Um, weird, but I don't know. It's so confusing," she gave a small dry laugh. "I mean while getting ready I was freaking out. And now...maybe...it would be a good idea to play along with this to buy time. It's not as if there isn't perks."
"Oh, Stefan, giving you the night off from this. Such a nice guy. I mean, boring but nice guy," Damon smirked moving with her on the dancing. He wanted to have her again but knew that Stefan had his claws in.
He moved her closer and leaned in. "If you want to, my door is always open and I still am the fun brother."
If looks were able to kill, Elijah would have been dead. His brother was not at all pleased with his intrusion and it was evident from the look being shot at him over Madison's shoulder. But Klaus did nod and give Madison a smile, which the man was almost surprised to see. It did seem he had been right when he said Nik at least cared for her.
His hand took hers and slowly did he lead her to the dance floor and far away enough to where the compulsion would not have a play so he could ask what he wanted. "I was curious as to how you are handling everything? The night and if it has been a good one." He said and let his eyes wander the girl. "And you truly do look stunning."
Teagan watched as Stefan left them and then her dark gaze fell to Damon as the man stepped closer. [#be5cf5 "Honestly at the moment I don't remember anything of the afternoon.. All I remember was Madison and I finishing with the projects Mrs.Lockwood had given us...and then the two of us getting ready for this..."] She was at least aware of the time gap.
And slowly her hand took his as the music began so they could have the one dance.
"Oh, come on little bro...Spare a dance for your big bro," Damon gave a grin towards Stefan.
Stefan looked to Damon before stepping back. "I need to go talk to some of the others anyway. Just once dance, Damon."
Damon made the Scouts honor sign before stepping close to her. "So how did he explain everything to you? Smooth and hunky doory I suppose."
Dancing with brothers. That was big for her, considering before Klaus it was a small scrambled but distant mess.
"I would like that," she said with a smile. "Just one dance and then we can go to your place."
She was already getting tired of these heels and the dress was amazing. Dancing with someone else, making someone jealous, it was a good night and she felt alive.
Teagan was honestly surprised when Damon had come up to them. Most of the night he had seemed to keep his distance or had been watching. And when he had approached with his words, her cheeks did turn a soft pink. What was wrong with her?
Brown eyes went to Stefan and she gave a small smile before she looked to Damon. [#be5cf5 "You would have to ask your brother. After all, I am here with him tonight and date ditching is rude."] She couldn't help the faint sass to her words and the small challenge there.
He could have told her that the tiny foods were good but not to die for. But the interest she showed and the desire to have some had him not. Besides he had already made the resolve to make the night at least a nice one.
It was when she came back from Mrs.Lockwood did the man smile as he had been bored senseless in the waiting. [b "I've been ready all night, love. So shall we?"] The man asked as he held an arm out to her.
It was at that moment did Elijah come up to the pair. He had been watching and attempting to make sure his brother had not been up to his old tricks. "Already leaving?" The man asked and then turned to give Madison a smile.
"I was going to ask if the young lady would honour me with a dance. She is the one I have yet to dance with and it would be rude to not give a proper thank you." He said
"I really want to try those fancy, small food. I'm sure it's not as great as I'm thinking but that's alright," Madison smiled. Before it made little sense of what she was doing, now she felt all sorts of weird.
Though it was only for another half hour, since Mrs. Lockwood wanted to thank her in detail, this time without the remarks. Tyler looked even more upset at this point.
"Ready?" She asked with a smile.
"Are you bored of him yet? I'm getting bored of watching you two," Damon smirked approaching them. "Care to give a dance?" He asked her with a smile.
It was hard to focus on anything when it was obvious that Stefan was attempting to make a big move here. It couldn't be too easy on his brother and especially the girl.
The girl shrugged the faintest bit. More so she meant it seemed the distraction of the ball itself. But she had not exactly formulated the thought fully and had spoken without much thought. A classic move that was so great for getting her into trouble.
[#be5cf5 "Maybe they do.. and maybe you would be interested in telling me a little more?"] Teagan asked with a soft smile as she took the boy's arm.
Oh it was hard to resist her and the things she made him feel. The desires that seemed to become ignited. And the fact that this kiss had been even better than those before had even drawn the man in more.
A faint smirk graced the man's lips at her words. Beautiful..no stunning was what the girl was. [b "I think that could very easily be arranged. But why wait?"] He asked as his eyes locked with hers.
Damon did watch the two curiously. Did Stefan really think he could charm her into forgetting all about him? Not likely. That night had been epic. The people had been forgotten and those killed would be found scattered around and the animals finishing them off.
"I'm wondering what distraction you're talking about? The Lockwoods have almost all of the history of Mystic Falls here," Stefan said offering his hand to her. She was sweet and not deserving of Damon.
Normally she was not one for public displays but she felt and looked amazing. That kiss was even more amazing than they had before. It had felt different. Now she wanted this entirely. Wrapping her arms around his waist after the kiss she looked up to him.
"Maybe after what they call filling food and socializing maybe we could go back to your place," she suggested. She wasn't sure that came out of her mouth but it had.
The man had felt this way perhaps a couple of times before in his long life. But still none had brought the fire and desire to life as she did. She was witty and she was charming. And beyond those qualities, the girl happened to challenge him when he was so very used to getting his way. Madison made Klaus feel alive to say the very least and he had to admit to the fact that he enjoyed her and her company.
[b "We always find our way. So it's not as sad as you would think."] The man muttered. And soon, Nik was returning her kiss. Her lips were as soft and sweet as the last he had tasted of them.
Upon hearing Stefan's words about his brother, Tea found she was right. The brothers did have that love and hare kind of relationship. And she felt a pang of guilt when she heard his words of it all being shot at Damon and how he would not hate her for the things that she chose. How could she explain she was drawn to both and it seemed she could not help the things she did?
[#be5cf5 "I'm good for a couple more dances if you are. It's nice that everyone else seems distracted and I can have you to myself."] She said with a soft laugh and smile, curtsying to him as an older and slower song had began
