Klaus looked down at her in quiet dismay given what had happened Caroline knew deep down she deserved it if only a little. The look of apprehension he had before he went on ignoring her wasn’t meant for her but she saw it anyway. Not that she would mention it now in the middle of helping his sister Rebekah with the leftover boxes of her nearly empty dorm.
Caroline wasn’t sure of what to do other than to make sure Rebekah didn’t catch on that they weren’t their usual quarreling selves because as usual Klaus was useless for help. The pair had never worked in silence before, in severe aggravation maybe, but not in a staggering silence that was more than off-putting for her. Fortunately Rebekah was adamant they get this done in the next hour so she could move into her new apartment that afternoon keeping them just the right about of busy.
So when Caroline bit her tongue for a full forty-two minutes before she grabbed for his arm, surprising him and herself Klaus should have seen it coming. He grumbled out her name as she dragged him around the old red brick building trapping him against the hard wall. Klaus blinked at her in shock as the disgruntled look about him all but disappeared.
Once she had him stalled against the brick with her arms draped over his neck Caroline struggled with words when she lifted her head. It reminded her of the quiet corner they had found themselves in the last time they had seen one another. The blonde watched the line of his throat as he swallowed words meant for her as his grasp became more firm around her waist.
A gasp escaping her as her nose brushed his then she felt him lift his hands to her arms actively dragging her off of his chest, “If you’re going to stand there and not say anything,” he cautioned with a mild tone, “I’ll leave Caroline.”
She frowned uncomfortable with her silence and the nice way he smelled after everything they had done that morning. Unsatisfied with her lack of reply and clearly reading her hesitation for indifference Klaus unfastened himself from her arms and tread heavily away from whatever moment they were about to share. Caroline let out an annoyed sound as he rushed away thinking about just letting him leave but that would not serve her purpose in explaining why she disappeared after kissing him and why it had nothing to do with him.
With a grunt she called out to him, “Klaus! Wait!” The blonde called as she chased after him.
Klaus froze at the feel of her fingers at his shoulder making his back stiffen just as he reached the end of the building. He turned his head looking back at her hoping Caroline wouldn’t notice the hope dawning inside of him at her sight and the image of her kiss swollen lips making him weak at the thought of chasing her kisses yet again. Klaus growled as Caroline pulled him into her against the wall yet again hiding in the shadow of it as Rebekah appeared from the front of the building searching for them.
This time however it was her pinned to the wall hiding in the crook of his body and wrapped in his arms as he grilled her once more, “Tell me why you left because I’ve been going bloody mad all week.”
“I like you and I didn’t expect to,” her answer was swift sounding blurted out making him chuckle softly against her cheek, “So I ran to tell your sister before anything else could happen. And then you wouldn’t talk to me.”
He stopped with a gentle kiss, “I’m sorry Caroline, I was sulking but I’ll do better. I promise,” he murmurs between faint feathering kisses that have her mouth chasing his.
