Niklaus Mikaelson is a liability , he’s been floating around Caroline like a lost pup for quite some time, and even more so since he came back from his trip to the motherland.
But she recognizes a darkness in him he’s not even trying to hide, and Caroline is intrigued.

This infatuation is enough for her to smile back, inviting him to take the few steps separating them. She dismisses Damon with a jerk of her hand, and for once, he agrees, leaving her with a nod.
“Lady Saltzman.” Klaus greets, as Caroline flinches at the words.
“Please, call me Caroline.”
His eyes widen before he looks at the floor, licking his lips. “That would be improper,” he adds, teasing.
