//requested: November Prompt List #3 and #4 with Kol Mikaelson (“You jerk!” and “Sorry, but people like me don’t associate with people like you.”) //
//warnings: swearing, flirty Kol and reader, sexual tension (or my lame attempt at it. also, I’m posting this on my birthday cause Kol is my absolute fave so happy birthday to me)//
“Oh sweetie.” I laughed, flipping one of the free curls out of my face. “I’m too much for you to handle, always have been.”
“Well Darling ” He replied smoothly. “Why don’t we get together tonight and find out?”
“Kol, baby, pretty boy. I always have been too much for you. Ever since we met, what was it, a few hundred years ago? Right before you got daggered?” I teased. “Wild spirit. And you just can’t keep up. No stamina.”
“No stamina?” He repeated. “I’ll tell you what, let’s test that theory. One night. If it’s not the best night you’ve ever had, I won’t ask again.”
“Interesting tactic, but I’m going to stick with no.” I smirked. “Go ahead and keep trying. This is kinda fun.” I patted his chest and walked by him towards the stairs that led to my bedroom.
Kol and I have known each other a very long time. We always had a unique relationship, a constant flirtatious banter. He was persistent and hot as hell, but I knew Kol. He wasn’t the relationship type. He was mildly sadistic and psychotic so I never expected anything to come out of our dynamic.
“Don’t think you’re getting off that easy.” He laughed and sprinted after me. He grabbed me by my waist and slung me over his shoulder. Anyone else I would’ve flipped them onto their back and snapped their necks. But I let Kol carry me, occasionally flicking his ear to annoy him.
He carried me to my room and dropped me on my bed. After, he locked the door and sat next to me. Luckily, my roommates weren’t home. When I came home, Stefan and Damon let me stay with them in their house.
“Well, this is an interesting turn of events.” I laughed and laid on my back. I stretched my arms out above my head, arching my back off the bed slightly. I crossed my legs and propped myself up on my elbows. “Is there a reason you did this?”
“Of course there is.” He smirked, trailing his index finger up my thigh to my exposed stomach and back down. “A new tactic… Tell me Y/N, when will your resistance with me wear thin?”
“Sorry, but people like me don’t associate with people like you.” I said in a low, welcoming voice. I sat up and positioned myself to be right behind him. I sat up on my knees and placed my hands on his shoulders. “You’re so tense, Kol. Something on your mind?” I asked in an innocent voice.
“Something is definitely on my mind, yes.” He said deeply, reaching up and placing a hand on mine. “And what do you mean, people like me?”
He quickly repositioned us so I was leaning against my pillows and he was leaning over me with an arm above my head. He smirked down at me and placed his other hand on the exposed skin of my side. Using the arm he had on my pillows, he pulled my headband off and tossed it across the room.
“You jerk!” I laughed and placed my hands on his chest. “I wasn’t finished teasing you.” I said truthfully. “I was having fun.”
“It’s my turn now.” He winked and squeezed my side slightly, causing my body to tense slightly.
“I don’t think so.” I smirked and flipped us so I was straddling him. “That’s better.”
He ran his hands up my thighs and licked his lips. “I agree, this is better. I love the view.”
“Don’t get use to it, baby.” I said and placed my hands on my knees. “You’re you. We’re just too different of people to ever work. You know that… You are the one that said it after all…”
It was true. Kol was the one who said that we were too different to work. He said I was too sentimental and considerate for him. He said he couldn’t see something long term with me. I had always seen the opposite.
I started to consider a future with Kol a few years after I was turned. Rebekah was my sire and we spent the first few decades of my new life as a vampire together, along with the rest of the Mikaelsons. During the first decade, he gave me my daylight necklace. He told me ‘Such a bright soul shouldn’t have to hide in the dark’ and kissed my cheek before he left my room that night. That was the moment I thought he cared about me.
But as time went on, he continued with his boyish charm and wit while I continued to fall for him. He was always adventurous, fun loving. He embraced what he was and had fun with it. Maybe that’s what it was that locked me in, that he wasn’t ashamed of who he was or what he did. He was unapologetically him. And I loved that about him.
“What are you talking about, Y/N?” He asked, genuinely confused.
I sighed and climbed out his lap, sitting next to him instead. He sat up and watched me intently. I crossed my legs and dropped my hands into my lap, fiddling with my fingers. I never had issues talking to Kol before. It was always playful and teasingly, but this time there was something different. Something serious. It felt like the whole dynamic was going to shift, if not fall apart.
“What you told Klaus a while back. You didn’t know I was there. I was looking for Rebekah but I came across you two talking. Klaus had asked if I meant something to you… You said I was something for when you were bored, that we were polar opposites and had no chance.” I said, remembering the day with perfect clarity.
“Y/N, Darling.” He said softly, gently reaching over and taking my hand in his. “What I told Klaus that day…” He began softly. I lifted my eyes from my hands and he smiled softly. “I was foolish. You are quite possibly the best thing that could ever happen to me. You may not believe me or you may not feel the same way but I need you to hear this… I think I- I think I love you.” He nearly whispered.
“Do you mean that?” I asked with a slightly hopeful tone. “Because if you do, that changes everything”
“I’ve loved you since I gave you your necklace.” He admitted. “You are beautiful, smart, kind, gentle, and confidence. You embrace everything about yourself and have never hid any part of yourself. Do you remember what I told you when I gave you the necklace?”
“You said I was a bright soul that shouldn’t have to hide in the dark.” I said with a slight smile. “Kol, when you gave me this necklace, I thought I meant something to you and I began to fall in love with you. And then I heard what you told Klaus and I thought all we were left to be was friends with flirty undertones…”
“I’d love to be something more with you, Y/N” He smiled sweetly. “If that’s what you want.”
“I’ve wanted that for a long time.” I admitted.
“Then why didn’t you say something something long time ago?” He laughed.
