Get That Smile Off Your Face
You had met Kol Mikaelson at a ball.
You had been invited along with your sister, Caroline, for a reason you ignored. Maybe they just wanted to be polite. Your sister wasn’t comfortable with the idea of her little sister being in the same room as the Original family of vampires, but she couldn’t stop you from going.
You had entered the beautiful mansion with her and she was quickly taken away by Klaus Mikaelson. You knew that your sister wasn’t as annoyed as she let everyone believe. You walked alone in the room where you spotted Matt Donovan with Rebekah Mikaelson, that you had met at school. Then, you saw Elena with both Stefan and Damon at her sides. They looked like they were arguing.
“(Y/N) Forbes,” you heard someone say behind you and you quickly turned around to someone you had never seen before. He was a young and handsome man who was smiling at you which made you blush. “I’m glad you came,” he said as he kissed the top of your hand which made you blush harder. “I’m Kol Mikaelson,” he introduced himself. “You look beautiful,” he looked you up and down.
“Thank you,” you looked down at the floor. “It’s a beautiful dress,” you thanked him and he nodded. You could only guess he was the one who had invited you. “I’m sorry,” you say. “Have we met before?” you asked.
“No,” he said. “But I’ve heard of you. My brother is quite fond of your sister and yesterday I was visiting town and I saw you in the park, my brothers told me who you were. I had to meet you,” he explained and you couldn’t believe what he was telling you.
“You did?” you could only say. You didn’t understand what he found so interesting about you.
He grinned. “Yes,” he nodded.
You saw your sister at the other end of the room, looking at you. She was with Klaus so you couldn’t tell if her annoyed look meant she was fed up with the hybrid or if she was suspicious of what the Original vampire wanted with you.
The guests were gathering in the ball room and Kol held his hand out to you.
“No,” you told him and he smiled.
“Please, I’ll lead,” he said and you looked at his hand before you looked up at him. He looked you in the eyes and you couldn’t say no to those eyes. You sighed and placed your hand in his and he grinned before he took you to the ball room.
Your sister gave you a look that silently told you that she disapproved but you couldn’t take her seriously as she was dancing with Klaus.
“You’re a good dancer,” Kol told you. You looked up and quickly looked back down so he wouldn’t see you blush. You didn’t see him grinned, proud of the effect he had on you.
After the dance, he brought you a glass of champagne.
“Thanks,” you shyly said.
“So your sister is a vampire,” he said and you lost your smile and looked up at him. “How did you find out?” he asked.
You sighed. “Klaus tried to kill me,” you told him.
“He did?” he asked, surprised. “He forgot that part of the story,” he looked angry. You looked down. Klaus kidnapping you and threatening to kill you wasn’t a good memory.
“He apologized,” you shrugged and he laughed.
“My brother doesn’t apologize,” he said.
You smiled at him, amused. “He never apologized to you?” you asked. They were brothers, brothers apologize to each other.
“Never,” he shook his head and you frowned.
“Care said he…”daggered” you, whatever that means, and that you were dead for like a century,” you said and he nodded. “And he didn’t apologize for that?” you were almost outraged.
He chuckled, amused. “Never,” he repeated.
You looked at him for a minute but he didn’t say anything more.
“Well, I’m sure he’s sorry,” you told him and he smiled.
“It’s nice to see there are nice people like you in this town,” he said and you shyly smiled. “My family and I are going to stay around for a while. It’ll be nice to have a friend.”
You were about to answer when you were interrupted by Esther, his mother. She was on the top of the stairs and she had a glass of pink champagne in her hand.
“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Waiters are coming round with champagne. I invite you all to join me in raising a glass. It provides me no greater joy than to see my family back together as one. I’d like to thank you all to be part of this spectacular evening. Cheers.”
Kol took your empty glass from you and put in down on a platter before he took two glasses of pink champagne and handed one to you. For some reason, the alcohol in his glass was redder than yours but you didn’t really pay attention to that.
“Come,” he said and you followed him outside.
“Where are we going?” you asked.
“Just here,” he shrugged. He had his hands in the pockets of his jackets. You walked in the garden in silence. “I’m glad you liked the dress,” he said.
“I do,” you told him. “Thank you,” you were obviously out of things to say.
He saw you shiver and he removed his jacket and placed it on your shoulders. You smiled and looked down at your feet before you looked up at him. He was grinning.
“Get that smile off your face,” you told him and he chuckled and looked down.
“Thanks for coming tonight,” he said.
“Thanks for inviting me,” you smiled and he smiled back and looked down again. He looked a little shy which you didn’t understand.
“(Y/N)!” you turned to see your sister with a disapproving look on her face. You frowned and sighed and turned back to Kol.
“I’m sorry, I have to go,” you say.
“That’s okay,” he said as he took one step towards you. He put his hands around your waist and you looked up at him and you put your hands over his forearms. His gaze landed on your lips and you watched his face getting close to yours. You closed your eyes when his lips touched yours.
It was a sweet but quick kiss. He grinned at you and you shyly smiled, you were pretty sure you were blushing. You were blushing hard.
“Get that smile off your face,” you repeated and he laughed.
“You should go,” he said and you sighed.
“Bye,” you smiled at him and he smiled back before you turned around and started walking to your sister. She didn’t look happy but you didn’t care. You turned once more to shyly wave at Kol once more before you followed your sister to her car and back home.
When you got into your room you noticed you still had his jacket. You smiled, thinking back to the kiss. You undressed and took a shower before you got into bed and fell asleep, still smiling.
