[Part 1] – Rebekah hires Elena to be Elijah’s Personal Assistant
[Part 2] – Elena’s finally a writer and Elijah had a new personal assistant only she seems to like Elijah a little too much
[Part 3] – Hayley is determined to make Elena’s life miserable so Elena decides it’s time to let her know who’s in charge
It had been almost seven months since Elena started working there and almost five since Elijah feel in love with his assistant. Fell in love with his very much taken assistant. He comes every Wednesday at Elena’s lunch break like clockwork. He comes to her desk, they flirt, Elena packs up, and then they leave. Elijah doesn’t know if it’s a good or bad thing that he seems to make her so happy. Elena is always in a better mood when she comes back and it’s like a knife to his chest.
“Couldn’t you be any more obvious?” Kol teased flopping down in Elijah’s chair. “Glaring daggers into that poor boy.”
Elijah tried to keep his face blank but a growing smirk on Kol’s face made it clear he was failing.
“What are you doing here?” Elijah hissed in question.
“Can’t I just come to visit my brother? Take him out for lunch?” Kol feigned innocence.
“On a Wednesday?” Elijah retorted.
“Wednesday? Today is Wednesday?” Kol gasp. “I didn’t know.”
Elijah opened his mouth to say something rather unprofessional and unbecoming when the elevator door opened to reveal the young man Elijah had grown to despise.
“I can see why Elena likes him that boy is gorgeous.” Kol’s eyes dragged over him even at this distance.
“Kol,” Elijah warned.
“What? Don’t be a hypocrite. I can look.” Kol waved him off.
“You know that’s not what I’m talking about.” Elijah tensed.
Kol was out of the chair and by Elena’s desk before he could even blink.
“You heading out to lunch as well?” Kol managed to sound completely innocent and genuinely curious. The bastard.
“I am.” Elena began packing up her things. “Please tell me you’re here to drag Elijah out of the office for some lunch?”
“I am.” Kol nodded.
“Elena, you ready to go?” the young man asked.
“Just about,” Elena confirmed.
“Hello there. I’m Kol Mikaelson.” He held out his hand.
The boy smiled brightly. “Jeremy Gilbert.”
“Gilbert? Please tell me you’re her brother,” Kol replied.
“I am,” Jeremy informed him.
Kol’s smile grew wider. “Well in that case.” Kol reached into his pocket pulling out his card. Grabbing one of Elena’s pens he scribbled something down on the back before tucking it in one of Jeremy’s pockets. “Call me.”
Jeremy blushed but continued to smile. “Okay.”
“Come on Jer.” Elena grabbed his arm. “Don’t let him fool you. He’s devious.”
“Oh Elena dear so mean!” he shouted after her. He waited until the elevator doors shut before turning to Elijah. “Now since it looks like you owe me it looks like you’re paying for lunch.”
Elijah frowned. More for show than anything else. After all Kol was right he did owe him. Jeremy was Elena’s brother.
