“Of course he still cares. You’re his family. You’ve been together through centuries.” She blinked, the meaning behind that seeming to dawn in her head. “Did you think he stopped caring?” Was that what had been going through Kol’s mind? Probably through Rebekah and Elijah’s as well. It would make sense if that was what the others thought was happening. She could understand why they probably saw it that way even if it was the furthest from the truth. Klaus loved them and would always love them, no matter what harsh things they might all do to one another. He just needed a break from the rest of it, and that she couldn’t blame him for. Especially not when he truly did seem happier to her.
“You can love someone and need time away from them. You loved them when you ran, didn’t you? That love didn’t just stop even though you needed a break from everything and time to go do your own thing, right?” Because when he wasn’t daggered wasn’t that what the others said Kol had been doing, running off to live his own life? She wondered if Kol even though of it like that though.
Caroline was aware that people couldn’t always see the similarities in their own actions when they were hurting because of someone else.
