Late night parties at the swimming hole were the last thing Kai had expected Y/N to do. It wasn’t like her. It also wasn’t like her to spend so much time at parties in general , specially around the boys. When he had found her that night , she had been standing on her arms , a guy holding a tube connected to a beerkeg directly into her mouth as she kept drinking. Everyone were cheering her on. Kai would’ve too only the group was made mostly of boys who were looking at her as if she was a piece of meat. It wasn’t helping much that she was wearing ripped light blue short shorts , her white top that had fallen down to her head and the laces of her favourite converses had been untied. Her hair wasn’t even pulled in a pony tale and Kai could hear with his vampire hearing every comment the guys made about her. A moment later she rolled backwards landing on her feet. Y/N wiped her mouth and her eyes fell on Kai , a wide smile spread across her face which quickly faded. He was looking at her as if he had no idea who she was. She raised her plastic cup to him and gulped it all at once. Kai wiped his face with his hand and in a few short angry steps he got to her , not carying about any of those guys he had pushed away , some of which had fallen on the ground.
“What do you think you are doing?” he asked trying to sound calm. “Late night parties ?! Come on , you are coming home with me.”
Y/N directly hooked his hands around his neck pulling him in for a kiss , he returned it for a few seconds and pushed her away.
“I missed you so much.” she beamed at him. “Did you miss me ?”
“OH you have no idea.” he muttered , grabbing her forearm and dragging her after him. As soon as they were away from the group , Kai grabbed her and whooshed them in vampire speed to his car. Damon and Stefan had mentioned that something was up with Y/N and she was acting out of control , but Kai hadn’t want to believe it at first. Seeing her acting the way she had a few moments ago only confirmed the Salvatore brother’s words. He had been away for a week to deal with unresolved family matters in Portland and apparently the fact he had been away had given her the freedom to do whatever the hell she wanted. Kai wondered if he should’ve left her alone to begin with. Specially after that email Damon sent him , which resulted in Kai coming back home earlier than expected.
“What was that about?” wondered Y/N as they walked into the house. Immidiately her hands hooked around Kai’s neck and her lips pressed against his.
“Nothing.” he said pushing her away a moment later , not returning the kiss.
Y/N felt hurt like never before. Kai always wanted to kiss her , in fact usually it was him chasing her around the house not letting her go anywhere before he had drowned her in kisses and had messed up her hair and make up to the point when she had to stay a little longer and be late to fix it all. Y/N followed him into the kitchen , seeing him open one of the cabinets and pulling out a bottle with bourbon. Kai poured himself almost an entire glass and drank all of it at once. Y/N leaned against the doorframe , folding her arms on her chest. He sighed and poured another. She took a few steps towards him gripping his wrist.
“You are going to tell me whats happening now. ” she said , taking the glass from his hands and placing it on the table. “Come on , Kai. We tell each other everything.”
He glanced at her and she felt her blood freeze in her veins. Her boyfriend was looking at her with a mix of hurt , anger and disgust in his eyes. It was a look she had never seen before and a her heart cracked.
“Do we ?” he asked. Even though his voice was calm , there was anger behind it. Like he was trying very hard not to start shouting at her. “What was that stunt tonight ? Is this what you have been up to the whole time while I was gone and all the nights you said you are ‘studying’ with classmates?!”
Y/N’s hands dropped to her sides. Her eyes met his , trying to understand where all of this was coming from. Not once he had snapped at her like that. His voice didn’t have a hint of the softness it usually had when he was talking to her.
“What ? No -”
“Don’t deny it Y/N.” he said taking a step towards her until their bodies were barely and inch apart. Kai towered over her and she found it hard to keep his gaze. His eyes were burning into hers. “Damon and Stefan told me everything. They were very explanatory too. It appears you have had a lot of fun while I was away. The fact you are refusing to meet my eyes now only confirms it.”
Y/N stood frozen on the spot. Stefan and Damon … when she got her hands on them things would get ugly. Whatever they had told Kai it was far from the truth. She had felt alone in the house without Kai and yes she had been partying a bit too hard but she’d never do anything more than just dance and hang around her friends. For her it was only Kai and no one else.
“Hold on. What are you accusing me of?” she asked confused. “That I was cheating ? Don’t you know me at all ?”
“I thought I did. Apparently not.” he snapped.
Y/N placed a hand on her forehead trying to figure things out.
“Yeah. Wow.” he said , taking his glass back and walking towards the door.
“Kai I -”
“You know what hurts the most ?” he said suddenly turning around. “That I trusted you. I loved you with all my heart and you - you betrayed everything we ever had.”
“Damon showed me pictures Y/N.” he said taking out his phone. “There I was , minding my business in Portland , getting ready to come home to you and surprise you when all of the sudden - BAM. I get an email with this picture attached to it.”
He turned his phone screen towards her showing her the photo. Damon had caught her and one of her friends in each other’s arms and from the angle it looked like they were kissing. He clearly had decided to play a joke on Kai.
“I’m going to kill him.” she hissed. “Kai its not what it looks like. He is taking things out of context. How can’t you see this ?! I love YOU. I’d never -”
“I see everything perfectly clearly , thank you very much.” he shouted. “You cheated on me. After everything we went through , all the grief your friends gave us about being together… Where is the warm , kind , loving person who made me want to be better ? All I see is this cold person in front of me who cares only about herself. You meant the world to me Y/N. We had such dreams of being together forever. I was going to turn you so we can have eternity with each other… but its all destroyed now.”
“I’m not cold.”
“Yes , you are. Stone cold and out of control.” he snapped back. “I’m done caring and loving you Y/N. I’m done.”
“What are you saying?” she asked quietly , dreading the answer.His emotions had completely taken over , blinding him.
“Its over. Whatever it was that we had , this entire lie that you turned my life into - it’s over.” said Kai through gritted teeth.
Y/N stared at him as if he was a stranger. He was ending things between them , she didn’t want to believe this was happening but it was. How can he believe DAMON over her? After everything they had been through.
“OH so you are just going to throw everything we had away ? Only because of a picture thats taken out of context ?! ” she shouted. Silence. “Fine then.” she said , raising her voice with every word. “Thank you for just proving to me you have never changed. You are the same monster you were before the merge. Blinded by your emotions , paranoid and afraid of rejection. God , how didn’t I see it before ? My friends were right. You should’ve done the world a favour and stayed in the 1903 Prison World. ”
Kai’s fist mashed the glass he was holding sending glass shards everywhere. Y/N scoffed and left the room , a moment later the half full bottle flew right past her and smacked in the front door.
“You missed.” she shouted , groaning in frustration a moment later.
“I wish I hadn’t.” shouted Kai , flashing in front of her.
