Something wretched about this (so precious about this)
For anyone that missed it on AO3, here is the Klaroline Valentine one shot I wrote for @thetourguidebarbie. Includes Succubus!Caroline. Title from From Eden by Hozier.
Caroline despised being indebted to anyone.
such debt to a vampire of all
creatures was even worse.
millennia, the vampires had been a bane to Caroline’s kind. They became addicted to the touch and taste
of a Succubus so easily, and it typically resulted in a shortened lifespan for
the succubus in question.
Katherine Pierce had once saved Caroline’s life, and so was – begrudgingly – owed a boon.
She ran a finger around the edge of her
cup. It was a latte – a rather delicious
latte – but the taste was marred by the fact that she was there with a creature
that could choose to go for her throat at any moment. “That’s all?”
“That’s all?” Katherine raised one perfectly
manicured eyebrow. “Well, I could try
and make it more complicated… but I figured that being a distraction to Klaus Mikaelson would be difficult
Klaus Mikaelson supposed to mean something to me?” Caroline took a sip of her latte, watching
Katherine over the edge.
eyed her in return, a slow smile that Caroline knew better than to trust
curving her lips, but… this would get rid
of the damn favor.
“He doesn’t need to mean a
thing. So you’ll help me?”
You were in the car with Sami, Enzo and Cass driving to another city. Music blaring in your ear as you looked out the window passing by trees and more trees and more trees.
One of your headphones got ripped out of your ears.
“ Hey!” you turned your head glaring at Enzo who was sitting besides you. Sami who sat in the passenger seat turned around, rolling his eyes before facing the front again.
“ I’ve been calling you for the past 5 minutes. You’re brain doesn’t hurt from all the loud music booming in your ears?”
“ One day your going to go deaf Y/N” Sami muttered. You had heard him, scouting up your seat you playfully smack the back of his head. “ Hey! what was that for?” He turned around in his seat once more glaring.
“ Be nice” he stuck out his tongue at you before turning around in his seat.
“ Children, calm yourselves” Enzo said. Your eyes glanced over to Cass who was driving the car, he was shaking his head at the three of you. He had to deal with you three for the past 4 hours.
“ Hey Cass?” “ Hmm?” “ We there yet?” He groaned hearing it. He thought Enzo would stop asking him that now you.
“ I am going to say this one more time. The next time I won’t be nice about it. We. Are. Not. There. Yet.”
“ Alright then” picking up your headphones putting them back in your ear before they were snatched away from you.
“ Dude!” you yelled trying to grab them from Enzo who had a hold of them.
“ What are you listening to?” He asked putting one of your headphones in his ear. He rolled his eyes hearing the familiar theme song.
“ How many times are you going to listen to his entrance. Why don’t you walk up to the guy and say “ I like you now let’s bang.”
“ What!No! Enzo what the hell…!” punching his shoulder before snatching your headphones away from him crowing to the other side of the car glaring at him. Sami laughed from the front, “ Oh and why are you laughing sunshine?”
“ You’re going to have to tell him at one point”
“ Never in a million years”
“ Why not? He’s just a guy like we are”
“ No he’s my best friend and I won’t ruin the friendship between us. Now shut up before I strap you to your seats”
“ Your so hot when you threaten people” you groaned rolling your eyes.
Running a hand through your hair as you walked backstage from your match that you just had with Nai, she was one of your favorite superstars to wrestle in the ring.
“ You good girl?” She asked coming up from behind you. You nodded holding your stomach. She frowned seeing you wince, “ You sure you’r okay?” you nodded.
“ I can take a fall or two” walking to the women’s locker room having a quick shower before getting changed. When you opened the door, Sami greeted you telling you how good you did in your match before taking your bag with his.
He always did that if you traveled with him. The two of you walked into the parking lot where Enzo was waiting for you with Cass standing by the trunk.
“ Took you long enough” glaring at Enzo, he shut up right away before grabbing the bags from Sami.
“ We’re good to go?”
“ Were having one more coming with us..”
“ Me” a familiar Irish voice said from behind you. Sami had a huge smirk on his face, your eyes turned to Enzo was shrugged but had a smile on his face. Then you turned to Cass who put his hands up getting in the passenger seat.
Finn Balor would be joining you along the ride. Oh how you would love to wipe off Sami’s smirk off his face and that smile from Enzo’s face.
Finn brought his bags into the trunk of the car, you groaned getting in the back. Sami would be driving the car this time which meant you had to share the backseat with Finn and Enzo. Enzo got into the right side of the car which left the middle and left side for you.
“ Jerk” you muttered underneath your breath but clear enough for Enzo to hear. He chuckled watching you climb into the back taking the middle seat. Finn finished loading his bags into the car before he hopped past Enzo. When he got around to you, his ass was right in your face. He had a fine one at that. He sat himself on the left side, glancing at you. His lips spread in a wide smile before he said, “ Hello.”
“ Hi” you greeting him turning your head forwards. Oh how much you just wanted to strangle Enzo and Sami for this. Why did it have to be Finn out of all people?
Sami turned to look over to you then to Finn. He had a small smile on his face.
“ Come on Y/N, tell him how happy you are to see him”
“ Drive Zayn, just drive”
As Sami began to drive down the road, a conversation picked up between the guys but what brought you to become tense was a hand on your thigh. Familiar one.
His hand. His thumb stroking circles around your thigh. He knew what he was doing.
You looked over to him to see him laughing at something Sami had said but his eyes turned to you holding mischief in them.
I sighed closing the door to the house, today was a long day and all I wanted to do right now was sleep. However as I walked past the kitchen I realized that sleep wasn’t even close to what I could do. Groaning I set my bag down, and tied up my hair as I begun to wash dishes.
As I continued to wash the dishes, it seemed like it was never ending because every time I washed a dish more would appear like it was some sort of sorcery. And at some point in my mind I just said, “Fuck it!” throwing the sponge in the sink I stormed through the house looking for one person in particular.
When I walked past the game room, I heard laughing and stopped. Taking a look inside I saw exactly who I was looking for. I slammed the door open and it ended up hitting the wall. Cristiano jumped slightly and turned around giving me a smile, “Hey babe”
I raised an eyebrow, “Don’t you hey babe me” I told him
Cristiano stood up and made his way over to give me a kiss when I stopped him, “What’s wrong?” He asked
“What’s wrong Cristiano? How about I’ve been working late shifts every night since the last two weeks, and when I come home I come home to dishes that seem to be multiplying every second. You’re home since 4 o’clock you can’t wash the dishes?Are your hands broken or some shit?” I asked
Cristiano stared at me in shock, “I’m sorry, you feel that way but there’s nothing I can do about your late shifts” He said trying to be funny
I gave him a blank stare, “I’m not fucking around Cristiano”
He sighed, “Alright I’m sorry, but I don’t know what you want me to do honestly. The house stuff is all your job, I just fix things and play soccer” Cristiano said turning around
“So you’re saying house chores are for women alone?”
Cristiano quickly turned around, “Well I mean-”
I scoffed, “Fuck you Cristiano”
“Y/N come on”
I pushed his hands away, “No seriously fuck you, I do some much shit and you don’t do anything minus play video games when you’re not on the field or at practice.”
“And what do you do at work? You’re a nurse, you just assist the damn doctors all day and you’re here yelling at me!”
I stared at him, “So that’s what you think I do all day? I have to fucking deal with other ignorant ass people and then come home and deal with the fucking king of ignorance” I yelled at him
“And how do you think it is with you?! You’re the same way!You never stop nagging and you’re just as ignorant as I am”
I groaned in frustration, and walked out of the game room. Fine! He doesn’t want to hear my nagging, he won’t have to hear it anymore then.
~The Next Day
When I woke up, I didn’t even bother making breakfast and just grabbed a bowl of cereal I sat down at the table and scrolled through the news on my phone. After a little while, Cristiano woke up and looked around. “You didn’t make breakfast?” He asked
I didn’t say anything and placed my bowl in the sink. Cristiano raised an eyebrow, “Hello? Am I speaking into the air?” He asked again
I walked past him and he reached out grabbing my arm but missing. I just continued walking to the room and getting ready to go to work, grabbing my keys I walked out into the garage. “Y/N, hey I haven’t seen you in a while?”Marcelo said
I smiled giving him a hug, “It has been how are the boys?” I asked
Cristiano looked between us with his mouth open and a face full of shock, Marcelo chuckled, “They’re great, Liam’s not keeping us up as much as he used to, and Enzo’s actually been asking about you” He said
I smiled, “Well tell Enzo, I’ll stop by soon with Junior one of these days”
Marcelo nodded, “Will do”
“Hey Y/N, can you pass me that?” Cristiano asked
I payed him no attention, and gave Marcelo a hug. “I’ve got to run to the hospital, I’ll see you later alright” I told him
Marcelo nodded chuckling, "Have fun at work" He said
I waved and started walking to my car, “You see what I mean, she’s been ignoring me like that since this morning” I heard Cristiano say
I rolled my eyes getting in my car and heading off to work. My time at work was so nice, for some reason today no one was begging ignorant or rude it was just a nice and peaceful day. So you could imagine how I felt when the day ended, I groaned walking through the doors Leila and Frankie next to me. “What’s up with you? Are you Y/N actually enjoying work today?” Frankie asked
I nodded, “It’s my break today”
They chuckled, we eventually had to split up and get into our separate cars and then home. Once I got home, I sighed as soon as I walked through the door. Heading into the kitchen I had already started to tie my hair up when I saw the amount of dishes in the sink.
I rolled my eyes not even not speaking to the damn man will get him to help out. “Y/N these are for you” Cristiano said
I didn’t pay him any attention, and continued to wash the mount of dishes in the sink. Cristiano sighed, “Y/N are you really going to ignore me? I said I was sorry”
Again I didn’t say anything, and just scoffed. Cristiano stayed all the way till I finished washing the dishes. He followed me all the way around the house as I did everything that needed to be done even when I went to the bathroom he stayed outside the door.
And just as I was going to walk out of the door, Cristiano pulled the door shut. I groaned, “I’m not letting go of the door until you talk to me Y/N” He said
I raised an eyebrow, and looked around the bathroom. I shook my head, and opened up the window. Climbing out, I walked around the house and to the front door getting the key from under the mat I unlocked the door and went to the bedroom.
When I walked in Cristiano stared at me shocked, “How did you? There’s no-God Damnit Y/N” He said
I shook my head at him, and changed my clothes.
When I woke up the next morning, the entire living room and coffee table was filled with flowers and teddy bear’s. I looked around confused, and Cristiano came over placing his hand over my shoulder, “So do you like it? It’s my way of saying I’m sorry about what I said the other day. I was wrong, and I-Wait where are you going?” He asked as I walked away
I didn’t answer him, and continued walking out of the living room. Cristiano sighed, “Y/N please speak to me I’m sorry, alright I’m a fucking tool and I deserve to be hit” He said
I tried my hardest not to laugh, but he continued, “Seriously sometimes I don’t know why you stay with me, but then I remember how attractive I am and then I realize-but that’s not the point.” He said continuing to ramble on
I chuckled shaking my head, “Shut up Ronaldo”
Cristiano smiled, “She speaks” He said
I rolled my eyebrows, “She does speak”
Cristiano sighed, “I really am sorry about what I said to you the other night, I know what you do is important both at work and here. I understand that now, and I don’t know what made me be an ass and say those things”
I nodded, “I’m glad you realized how important I am”
Cristiano chuckled, “Is there anything you’d like to say to me?”
I sighed, “I’m sorry for calling you ignorant and comparing you with the patients, and thank you for washing the dishes this morning”
Cristiano gave me a smile pulling me close to him, “I love you”
Seth Rollins/OC. For Anon: Seth and some of the roster take the piss out of the OC’s English
accent and some English phrases she says and she starts to get insecure. Seth
tells her he actually finds it hot and it ends up smutty.
Requests: “Can your write a one-shot where Enzo gets jealous and includes the reader riding his face” “More Enzo smut please💕” “More Enzo please!!💕” “Can you do enzo, we haven’t seen enzo! At least I haven’t. I feel like in the show he’s just there and Julie doesn’t really know what to do with him”
You just couldn’t believe how ridiculous Enzo was being. Just because you hung out with your friends for a day doesn’t mean you were tired of your relationship. It was nice to get some time away for a little bit.
“Enzo just stop! Okay?” You whipped around to face the vampire who you were madly in love with. “I’m tired of your bitching. I spent my day with Elena and Bonnie. Not with another man, and it doesn’t mean I’m bored of you.”
A/N: First imagine! Please enjoy! I’m sorry it’s so long, I am such a detail oriented person haha. Inspired by the song Face Down by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Gif is not mine, unfortunately neither is wwe. Story is fictional work of my imagination. (Sadly)
Warnings: Angst, Fluff, Abusive Relationship, Blood, love
You sighed, walking down the corridor backstage towards your boyfriend, Bray Wyatt’s locker room.
Life with the WWE crew was great, really. Honestly, there was no reason you should’ve been allowed to travel with them, but when Bray brought you around and they realized your talent for makeup, you were offered a job by Stephanie McMahon herself, and since then you’d been a part of the rag tag group of idiots.
You had been dating Bray Wyatt for three years, and at first everything had been great, but…he had changed since the two of you were kids. He just wasn’t the same guy he once was.
You shivered, pulling down your hoodie sleeves subconsciously. You held Bray’s food in your hands, you shook, knowing you mustn’t drop it. An easy task to anyone but you, the clumsiest of the clumsy.
And, as if Satan himself had overheard your fears, it happened.
You slammed into a hard chest and fell on your butt, dropping Bray’s sandwhich and pop, and you winced when the latter exploded.
“Oh Jesus Mama, I’m so sorry!” a familiar voice exclaimed, and you looked up to meet regretful blue eyes, belonging to your best friend here at wwe, Enzo Amore.
He crouched and helped you to your feet, apologizing all the while, but your mind was too busy working itself up.
You had dropped it.
Since you had appeared here in wwe, Enzo Amore had been the most friendly to you. He cracked jokes, and introduced you to everyone, speeding up the “warming up” process, and making you all kinds of friends. You were never able to hang out with him long, Bray didn’t like it, but he stopped and talked to you each time he passed you in the corridors, and when it was time for makeup, he would always sit in your chair and talk to you while you “made him look pretty” as he called it. Enzo was a good man, with a wonderful personality, and you definitely admired him for it. Each and every day, if you hadn’t passed in the corridors or had makeup together, he would make an effort to find you at least once a day, just to talk and check up on you. Honestly, you had developed a major crush on him, not that you could ever tell a soul, oh God if Bray found out.
“Mama?” Enzo’s voice pulled you back to reality, “You okay?”
You realized you had been staring at the ruined sandwhich on the floor, and Enzo was looking at you quizzically, one eyebrow raised.
You gulped, trying to calm your shaking hands, and hide your terror. You pulled at your sleeves again, “I’m sorry for running into you ‘Zo, won’t happen again.”
Enzo smiled and chuckled, “I don’t mind runnin’ into you, Princess. Gives me an excuse to talk to ya.”
You blushed, and cast your gaze to the floor, gulping again.
Enzo touched your chin, tilting your head to look at him. His eyes were filled with genuine concern as he asked, “Mama? You sure you’re alright? You’re actin kinda funny…”
Standing there looking at him, you knew you should tell him, knew you should spill everything to him, get help, but you couldn’t. If Bray found out…you would have to leave WWE, and Bray would still come home to you. You didn’t have your own house. Your mom had kicked you out at age 16, Bray had been there. How could you tell anyone? How could you oust him? He had been there…He had taken care of you…
You swallowed the lump in your throat and opened your mouth, “I’m fi-”
Your body stiffened and your heart pounded. You felt yourself shake, gulping for the hundredth time that night.
“Oh, hey Bray!” Enzo said cheerfully, “(Y/N) just ran into me, sorry for keeping her.”
Bray gazed at you with the look you knew so well, and you said quietly, “I fell…I-I…I dropped your f-food.” You kicked yourself mentally for your stupid nervous stutter.
Enzo was looking at you, you could feel it, and when you snuck a glance, he looked suspicious.
“I’ll go get you some mor-”
“No, no (Y/N). Let’s just go back to the room. I’ve lost my appetite.” Bray said in a voice anyone elso wouldn’t have noticed but you? You felt the edge. The warning.
Enzo was still gazing between you and Bray, his eyes narrowed, with a look you didn’t recognize.
“Come on,” Bray said, turning and walking.
“Bye, Enzo,” you whispered, looking at him in a way you hoped didn’t show your fear, and trotted after Bray.
Enzo watched you go, knowing something was wrong.
You cried, feeling them.
The sound was hollow, like there was nothing inside you.
You were curled in the fetal position, holding your left wrist, which he had thrown you around with. Blood was running down your face, as your nose was bleeding. Your eye was blackening slowly, you could feel it. Bray was at least smart enough to hit a professional makeup artist.
The toes of his boots seemed to hit over and over into your ribs. Your spine. Your side.
You closed your eyes, sobbing quietly. You knew you weren’t allowed to make noise. You knew it would get worse and he’d get the gag.
You watched his feet appear in front of you, and then the assault on your stomach began, curling you even further into yourself. You clenched your eyes shut, biting back the moans and screams of pain. No noise. No sound.
You were starting to lose conciousness, you knew it from your slowly darkening field of vision.
And then there were bangs in the distance, but you couldn’t keep your eyes open. The assault stopped, there were voices, someone screaming your name, darkness.
When your eyes opened, you were assaulted again by violent fluorescent lights that hurt your head and made you cover your eyes until you adjusted. You pulled your hands away from your face, looking at the bandages on your left wrist and the IV in your right.
Looking down at yourself, you confirmed that you were indeed in a hospital room, in a hospital gown, in a hospital bed, alone.
The beeping slowly came into focus, the various machines running, the hushed voices from the corridor. You looked at the door, seeing it closed, and then you looked the other way, noticing the chair next to the bed. An unmistakeable Red leather Jacket was draped over the back of it, and you cocked your head, wincing at the soreness.
Then, the pain hit.
Your whole body screamed out, and you hissed in pain, dropping your hands to the handles on the sides of the bed.
You looked over at the chair again, breathing and calming the pain down, as you looked at everything sitting on the night stand by the bed and the chair. There was Enzo’s jacket, and a hairband. A few dirty wet wipes that you knew were covered in removed makeup. You smiled slightly, wondering why he’d been here.
You sat up, however slowly and painfully, and very slowly managed to lean over and pick up Enzo’s jacket. You looked at it, smiling at Enzo’s personality. All of his clothing showed a part of him. You hugged it to your chest, smelling his cologne mixed with his natural scent, which you knew well, from doing his makeup before he got ready, meaning not even deodorant. His natural smell smelled like Kettle corn to you, and maple syrup.
You hugged his jacket and laid back down on the bed, but not for long, as you shot back up as the door clicked. You hissed, but still watched as the door slowly opened and you saw the blonde certified G pushing the door open with his foot, as he held a collection of things in his arms. All of which, however, he almost dropped upon seeing her awake.
“(Y/N)! Oh god Mama!” He stammered as he scrambled to the chair and scooted it as close as humanly possible without being on the bed. “Oh my god, Princess I was so worried!”
You giggled as Enzo fell over himself, dropping everything he was holding and stuttering.
“I got you food in case you were hungry, but you’re probably not but oh well and Cass took the other superstars home and I got you some hot cocoa because I know it’s your favorite but I also got you water and- Oh my god! How are you feeling? Should I call a nurse? I’m so-”
You cut him off as he went to stand, “Enzo,”
The stud stopped, “Yeah Mama what do ya need? Anything? I’m right here I’ll-”
“Enzo,” You said again, calmly, “Sit down, I feel fine. Just sore is all…what happened?” You said, remembering the reason for your pain, and your body visibly tightened and curled, you squeezed his jacket harder, and started to shake.
Enzo shot up, making you flinch, but he was quick to sit on the edge of your bed, and take your hand. He looked at your eyes, and you looked at his, so full of concern and care.
“Breathe (Y/N), breathe, I won’t let anything hurt you anymore,” he murmured, gently pulling your hand to his lips and kissing it gently.
You relaxed a little, and Enzo moved closer. Gently and slowly, he laid down on his side beside you, facing you and you slowly and painfully turned to face him, and he ran his hand up and down your hip, his other hand supporting his head.
“Well,” He said finally, “I knew something was up when he was staring at you, and I got suspicious. I would’ve been there sooner but I had a match, and when I came backstage I heard one of the sound guys saying how he had heard crashing in Bray’s room. I got this really bad feeling in my stomach so I ran to Bray’s room as fast as I could and-” Enzo stopped, seemingly angry as he took a deep breath through his nose and tensed. “I found that scumbag kicking you and I lost it. Everyone heard and came running. Cass carried you out of the room and to the ambulance and by the time security pulled us apart someone called the police and they took Bray when they saw your bruises. I came straight here, I told them if they needed to talk to me I would be next to your hospital bed. Doc says you have a broken wrist, couple broken ribs. The rest is just very bad bruising. They gave you painkillers to knock you out while they set your wrist. You’ve been out for about seven hours.”
You started to cry, and Enzo wiped your tears, “Babygirl, why you cryin? C’mon, baby ‘zo’s here I ain’t gonna let nothing happen to ya…”
He trailed off, slowly and gently pulling you into his chest and letting you cry against him as he hummed in your ear and played with your hair.
When you had finally calmed down enough to speak, you did, and it all just came out. You told him everything. From when you and Bray were kids, to being kicked out and moving in with him, to dating, to the abuse, to the sandwhich, to everything. Like Niagara, when you started, you couldn’t stop until you had worked yourself up to the point you had to stop.
Enzo stayed silent, listening and letting you talk, just rubbing your back gently until you had finally finished, and he said quietly, “(Y/N), I am so so sorry for all of this. for everything that happened. All of us should have known. We should’ve suspected. You wear long sleeves in California in June, and none of us saw. Darlin’, I wish I had known, wish I could’ve saved you. I should’ve protected you from the start. Darlin, I know you’re scared right now, but you need to believe in me. Because you won’t be leaving the WWE, your makeup skills are phenomenal, and baby you don’t have to worry about your house.”
You sniffled, “Why not?”
“Well,” He said, almost nervously, “I mean I understand if you want to say no, but I have a huge house…and I’m just one guy, and you can have your own room and bathroom and-”
“Enzo, are you asking me to move in with you?”
“Well….yeah….I think I am…because baby I’ve loved you since I first set eyes on you, but I thought you were happy with Bray, and I would never do anything to sabotage your happiness, my beautiful baby…I’ve been meaning to ask you on a date for a long long time…and we don’t go off tour for a few months, so maybe…yanno…you could see how you like me…and…yanno…when I go home for break…If you wanna come then you can be right next to me the whole way.”
“Yes, Enzo. I will go on a date with you, as long as there’s a promised second date…and Enzo?”
“I love you too.”
He smiled, and when you two kissed, for the first time in 3 years, you felt safe.
