She'd finally agreed to let him help her. Alright so she'd gotten there when he had agreed that he would join his siblings in explaining the truth to the youngest of them. The newly arrived Henrik. Something he still wasn't sure he wanted to do, shatter the boy's illusions of their shared past. Klaus had built a thousand year history of deceit and lies and yet with Caroline that all faded. She was his light. That beautiful and kind girl that he still didn't understand why he had fallen so deeply for. He wouldn't change her, change this, for the world but it confused him. She made him care more deeply than anyone ever had, he'd changed long held plans for her, he hadn't killed Katherine Pierce because of her, he'd given Stefan his blood to cure him from his own bite, in part because of how she'd have reacted, he hadn't done so much of what he normally was capable of simply because it would upset her.
And now they were here and part of Klaus wondered if this wouldn't diminish that light, just a little. But he was honestly doing this to help her. She had such control, he wondered if she couldn't make it stretch to this. She couldn't live forever on animal blood and she was far from a Ripper, she'd just learned from Stefan."
Her hand was linked in his and she looked ready, she looked beautiful but that wasn't unusual. "First thing you need to remember. I have killed, I do, I've never cared for my victims. I'd find someone in this club, drain them, drop them, move on. But for you, because of you, that's different here. I'm telling you this not to win favour but so you understand that I have crossed every line I'm going to teach you not to so don't look to me as your role model in this. Now Alexia, and her lover, do you expect they feed on bears and pigs and wild dogs. No they feed, they drink from humans and very likely this is how. Thing about a place like this is you can be blatant. Grab some insipid idiot, few words in their ear, get them on to the dance floor or a quiet corner and you can take what you need. That's the easy bit. It's stopping before you've taken it all, that's the trick."
And that was what Caroline would need to learn most of all, and that was why he was with her here. In truth someone like Alexia probably would have been a better teacher but he had offered the lesson and his love had accepted.
Klaus moved to stand behind her, hand still linked loosely in hers as the other slid around her waist.
