Caroline reluctantly pulled away from Klaus’ embrace. As much as she wanted more blood, she was pretty damn content being in his arms on the dance floor, hearing a hundred plus heartbeats beating around them. But she knew that the sooner she fed again, the sooner he would most likely join in and they could repeat this little dance together. So she scanned the crowd, looking for someone else to feed from.
It didn’t take her long to find a guy blatantly checking her out, giving her a look that was definitely trying to entice her his way. She wasn’t sure how Klaus would react to him, but it was just feeding, so it shouldn’t really be a big deal, right? “Found one,” Caroline murmured to Klaus before slipping completely away from him and heading toward the young man.
The pick up lines were atrocious as they started to dance together, but she faked a laugh, let him pull her closer, no doubt he was thinking he actually stood a chance with her. It was insanely powerful knowing she had that kind of hold over someone and she hadn’t even used compulsion yet.
“Okay, seriously, one, put your hand on my ass again and I’m going to rip it off. And two, be compliant and don’t make a damn sound,” she compelled, pleased when the hand moved up to her back instead.
Well, seemed he was listening, so she let herself bite into the guy’s neck, closing her eyes as soon as she tasted his blood.
