*not my gif ______________________________
Y/N woke up from a strange noise coming from outside her window. At first she thought she had imagined it but then the noise came back. She sat in her bed looking around the room , trying to figure out where the sounds were coming from , her gaze drifting towards the window as another pebble bounced off the glass. She smiled , there was only one person who would show up at the middle of the night throwing pebbles at her bedroom window , tho she didn’t understand why he hadn’t sneaked inside her bedroom like usual. Y/N got up and stumbling walked to the window glancing outside - it really was him. She felt her heart skip a beat when her eyes fell on him. Kai clearly had seen her because a grin showed up on his face. Y/N opened the window letting the cool air inside. “What are you doing ?” she asked. “Its … 2am.” she said glancing at her phone screen for a moment. “Rapunzel , Rapunzel … let down your hair!” Kai said grinning. Y/N couldn’t help but laugh. Everyone thought Kai was a dangerous sociopath who didn’t care about anyone or anything but they were wrong. He was dangerous and unpredictable , yes …and may have maimed and hurt a lot of people but Kai was different around her. He was actually really sweet in his own way and she loved that about him. “Oh my …” she said breaking into laughter. “What are you doing down there ?” “Come outside.” he said suddenly serious. Y/N looked at him curious and nodded. “Just a sec , I’ll be right down…” “No. Jump through the window , I’ll catch you.” Kai said. Y/N looked at him as if he were crazy. “What ? No … I’ll just be a minute ..” “Don’t you trust me ?” he asked , a slight hint of hurt in his voice. Y/N sighed. She trusted him , more than she cared to admit. Somehow Kai had become her best friend and so much more than that. Everyone avoided him but not her and they just clicked. “With my life.” she said while climbing out the window. If for whatever reason Kai didn’t catch her , that would be it for her… but she knew him and was sure he’d catch her. Then she jumped. A few seconds later she landed right into Kai’s arms. “Nice of you to drop by.” he said winking at her. “Oh shut up…” she said laughing while he let her on the ground. Y/N pulled him into a hug immediately. “I missed having these midnight visits…" she said smiling. “You haven’t been avoiding me , have you ?” Kai smiled. Y/N looked at him. Was she imagining it or did he look nervous ? “Of course not. I’ve just been … busy. ” he said pulling her into another hug. “Hey , there is supposed to be this comet tonight…It’s supposed to be a once in a lifetime thing.” he said excitedly , “I thought you might want to come watch it with me ?” Kai’s eyes were bluer than usual and there was something different about him , she just couldn’t quite figure out what it was. Or maybe it was because the past few days he had been MIA and she just missed him too much. “Lets go.” Y/N took his hand and smiled. They got in Kai’s car , Y/N sitting on the passenger seat next to him. “Aren’t you going to put your seatbelt on?” he asked. She shook her head. Why would she put a seatbelt on when Kai was next to her ? He made her feel safer than any seatbelt ever would and if something happened she knew he’d step up and heal her. “Put your seatbelt on.” he ordered. “I may be a powerful heretic , but you are still human. Not willing to risk it.” Y/N sighed and pulled her seatbelt but couldn’t lock it and Kai helped her , his hand slightly touching hers , his touch sending shivers all over her body. She glanced at him and felt her heart flutter , his eyes met hers and she quickly looked away. Kai started the engine and turned on the radio. A few minutes later he was already singing along to another song , trying to get Y/N to sing along with him too. “Come on Y/N ! Sing with me !” he said. “Please ?” It was impossible to say NO to Kai when he said ‘please’ and made pouty face with a puppy dog eyes. There was one thing Kai was extremely good at and that was getting what he wants , always. She gave in and they spent the rest of the drive singing and laughing. Soon they were far enough from the night town lights.
Kai spread a blanket on the grass for them to lay on while watching the comet. Y/N couldn’t take her eyes off him. How it was possible for him to look hotter every single time she saw him ? He was so perfect - from his chizled jaw , to his eyes and his toned body. She bit her lip getting lost in a fantasy. Y/N had gotten so distracted watching him and didn’t even notice he has been calling her name until Kai used his vampire speed , put his hands on her waist and and pinned her on the ground on top of the blanket locking eyes with her for a few seconds before rolling off from her. “Wow …What was that for ?” she asked laughing nervously trying to calm down her breathing with no luck. “You weren’t listening , I had to grab your attention somehow.” he grinned. You definitely grabbed my attention. she thought trying to catch her breath. Having him lay on top of her even for a split second had her attention grabbed forever. “Well … you have my complete attention now.” she said glancing at him. “I didn’t know you would be into comets … ” “I’m not.. but you are. Plus I wanted to spend some time with you before I .. leave.” he said with a grim tone. Y/N’s eyes widened. “You are leaving?!” she shot up straight. “You just got back … I don’t … I don’t understand.” Kai sighed. "Your friends don’t like me and want me to leave town.“ "Since when do you care what they think?” she asked , but the answer took a few minutes. “Since they threatened you , OK.” he laid back on the blanket starring at the sky. WHAT ?! WHO ??! Y/N couldn’t understand what was happening but one thing was clear - she was not going to let him leave. Y/N got up and walked briskly to the car , trying hard not to stumble over something in the darkness before reaching inside the car through the open window and taking her phone from the seat where she left it. “What are you doing ?” Kai pressed her against the car door , his hand swiftly taking her phone out of her hands. Second time tonight his body is pressed firmly against hers and her heart was about to leap out of her chest because of that. She was starting to think he was doing it on purpose. Y/N sighed in frustration. “I am calling Damon to let him know I will rip his head off.” she said angrily. Kai grinned. “That sounds like fun , but doubt you can do that.” “Try and stop me. Now give me my phone back.” Y/N reached for his hand but couldn’t grab it. “Kai , give it back !” She tried a couple more times but in the end all Kai did was put her phone in his back pocket. “Get in the car.” he ordered suddenly serious. “No. I am not getting in the car and I am NOT letting you leave town. Not without me.” she said with determination. All her life in this screwed up town everything had felt absolutely broken and the second Kai showed up it was like everything fell into place. Suddenly life there didn’t seem as bad as before and it was all because of him. There was no way she’d let him go… “You are not coming with me Y/N.” he said calmly as if explaining something to a child. “All your friends and family are here , you grew up in this town. This is your life.” “You are my life Kai ! I’ll have to be dead to let you leave without me !” she said , her hand rushing to cover her mouth. OMG WHAT DID I JUST SAY?!? she thought as panic flooded her. Kai was her best friend and she knew him better than anyone else , but at this moment she had no idea what his reaction would be. She had pretty much told him she has feelings for him. Kai pretended to look confused for a split second and then grinned. “Did you just say that I am your life?” Y/N shifted uncomfortably on her feet. She had slipped up , big time. “Lets just … let’s just watch the comet.” Y/N stuttered and tried to wiggle her way out but Kai wouldn’t let her. He had placed his hands on either side of her , his eyes were locked on hers and he was looking at her as if he was seeing her for the first time. Her heart beating faster than ever and the longer Kai stayed this close to her the harder it got for her to breath. Kai brushed her cheek with the back of his hand , his touch so soft and gentle. A long moment passed before he spoke. “You really want to come with me ?” he asked and Y/N nodded. “Are you really sure about this ?” “I’ve never been more sure about anything else in my life.” Y/N smiled at Kai and he grinned. "There is just one thing … I want to do before we go.“ she said leaning in , making sure she had his complete attention and slipped her hands in his back pockets , pulling her phone out. Kai’s eyes widened when he realised what she was doing. He wasn’t gonna let her call Damon and say something that she shouldn’t. She smiled at him , biting her lower lip as if she hasn’t done a thing and the next moment her phone was already out of his pocket. "You are not going to call him.” Kai said. “Who says I am going to call him ? Maybe I just want to take a picture of us and post it on Instagram ?” she said winking at him. “Do you ?” he asked , clearly knowing she was lying. Kai always knew when she did that. “Yes and no… I want to try and take a picture of the comet and then a picture of us at .. our new place.” she said not taking her eyes off of him. Kai took a step back giving her space. “I love how you said ’our place’. You will love our bedroom too.” he said smiling , watching her expression change at his words. “Oh come on , did you really think I haven’t noticed how you act around me ?” Y/N opened her mouth and closed it again , trying to find the right words to say but the entire vocabulary had escaped her. He knew about her feelings for him and all this time and hadn’t said a thing to her? .. “H-how …? Kai , I .. ” Kai pulled her close to him again , leaning in to whisper in her ear. “Your heart beats faster every time I touch you … ” he said , his hands on her waist slightly sliding under her shirt touching her skin. “ … and your breathing turns shallow every time I get close to you like this.” he pulled her close , so close there wasn’t any space between them. Kai rested his forehead on hers gently rubbing his nose against hers. “You didn’t really think I’d leave without you , did you?” he said smiling. Y/N wanted to punch him and kiss him at the same time. He had tricked her. “W-what ?” she asked confused , trying to remember how to breath failing miserably. “It had to be your choice , Y/N. I’d never take that away from you just because I can’t bear a moment without you by my side.” he said , the next moment pressing his lips against hers gently at first and the passionately , letting all things he wanted to tell her to be told by the kiss. Y/N didn’t need air anymore. All she needed was him , all she’d ever need is him. Her hand dropped the phone on the ground as the tangled her fingers in his hair pulling his lips closer to hers. “There is no comet , is there ?” she whispered when Kai broke the kiss. “No.” he said smiling. “Except your eyes right now , glistening in the darkness just like comets.”
