“I don’t know. It’s all become kind of a blur for me. I just see side comments or jokes or stuff and I react which is so bad and I need to stop doing it but its like really hard not to react to it.” She just hated that the good things that Klaus was actually doing in the community weren’t talked about too. Was she the only one seeing any kind of change in him? Because she had and maybe it wasn’t exactly to the degree some people wanted but she noticed all of it. And while she didn’t exactly want Klaus to change, she’d fallen in love with who he was, she didn’t exactly mind the whole art center thing. Or the hunts. Or the taking care of his little brother part.
But she’d seen flickers of good in the Hybrid for a long time so maybe it wasn’t too surprising that she noticed them more than others did. It didn’t blot out all of the horrible things he’d done or the way he still treated some people but even that wasn’t universal. Caroline thought he was an idiot in regard to that for a number of reasons, but she couldn’t discount that he seemed to treat little Bo or Jesse or even big Bo and some select others with respect and talked to them just fine.
It all just made her head hurt. “Maybe it has to do with time. I don’t know.” She probably would never really comprehend why things went the way they did with the double standards. “I’m just tired of it and I know it’ll always be a thing but you know he watched me die three times and he didn’t do what he’d done that first time, last year when I did. He kind of ruined a few rooms but...that’s growth.”
