It was strange, being here. Being in a city that he knew as his but knowing it wasn't. Someone else had planned the things he'd planned. Built the things he'd had built. But he could still show them, His youngest brother and the woman he loved beyond all others. He could show them this city, explain what he'd done, and show them the beauty of the place. Henrik even now was looking out over the city. Listening to a jazz musician playing down the street.
Klaus really didn't want to push things too early with Henrik. But the truth was he needed to know the whole story. Possibly without some of the gorier details, but why exactly he'd walked away from his family. Why he didn't want them in his life and why they had their issues with him. He needed to know why Klaus was so worried that Henrik would leave him, why he worried about Stefan and Katherine being around him so much. All of it. And Caroline had left the suite already to go and take advantage of the day spa the hotel had included in the deal for the suite. It was the best time to do this really.
And so with a resolution in his mind he didn't really feel, he followed the boy onto the balcony and gazed out over the city for a moment before leaning against the rail and turning to his brother.
"Can we talk about some things? I expect you have an idea of what" he said simply. It was going to be messy, the boy would probably be angry at him, but hopefully he'd see why exactly he was so protective of him.
