Once again, Elijah was reminded of a beautiful memory from five hundred years ago. One of the best memories Elijah had in his entire existence was when he had first met Katherine, who was just Katerina then. At first look, he immediately found her beautiful and at the same time, he had found himself staring at her for quite a time before his brother had come in the scene and introduced himself. At that night, he knew that there was indeed something special about her. Of course, he didn’t know it then that she would eventually become one of the very rare real love he would have in his life and that five hundred years later, they would be spending their moments together away from Niklaus and the rest of the chaos the supernatural world brought. Elijah listened at Katherine recall that memory they both shared and he listened while he ate without much appetite. Once she was done retelling her side of the story, Elijah placed his fork down and looked at her. He didn’t smile yet because he was still feeling a bit disappointed at how she looked at the situation she was in. But when she apologized, he sighed and took her hand that was rested on his arm. “You’ve seen it before and I expected you to see it even now. I will only have my eyes on you.” He kissed the back of her hand and finally, smiled softly at her. “You are beautiful, no matter what age people see you. In my eyes, you are beautiful even when you’re looking to be seventeen or thirty or forty. If there was a way for me to look as if I’m sixty just to make you feel better, I would. But there’s not and my love can only and hopefully validate the way I look at you. Do you understand?”
She was half expecting him to scald her from the way he placed his fork down on the table next to his barely touched plate that Katherine found herself wincing as if it would soften the blow. Her expression began to ease back into that which was curious yet still rather guarded all at the same time, she wasn’t sure as to what Elijah was thinking in that moment. Perhaps he wanted to just kiss her senseless with a “I told you so” smirk on his face after trying to prove just how much he loved her grey hair or not. He laced his hand with hers, his expression now faded - Electricity coursed through her veins and she too found herself releasing a long overdue breath. She knew that he was trying to comfort her by saying that if he could have it any way he would be sitting here looking just like his thousand years. Katherine bit her lip and shook her head before she shifted closer towards him in the booth, her hand moved up to the back of his head. Fingers threading through his hair - She had missed him, missed looking at him like this. Their eyes both saying a thousand words as they would gaze at each other as if they were trying to communicate with the others soul. She remembered back when they had reconcilled, back when they would wake up in the morning and Katherine would find herself in shock that he was there looking dangerously beautiful besides her, filling the empty space in her bed. His chest moving up and down as he breathed, the morning sun caressing his skin and outlining his perfection all for her to see. “You don’t wish that - I wouldn’t wish this on my worst…well. Maybe I would.” A shadow of a smile played on her lips. Klaus looking sixty was far more a pleasant thought than seeing Elijah bare his age. She bit her lip, her expression more serious than before. “I understand.” She whispered only to lean forward and kiss his cheek finding herself lingering there. “But I’m getting worse.. With every hour..I keep trying to pretend that there is nothing wrong but there is. It’s not just that my looks are…are not what they should be. But it’s because I know that I’m not going to be here soon.” Why she was bringing this up over dinner was beyond her. She just needed Elijah to try and understand why she was sitting underneath the darkest cloud of them all. “I love you. Always have..always will. Young or Old. And I know that you will also.”
Just finished reading Allegiant and well I feel like a train wreck. Thanks Veronica Roth for crushing my very soul :’)
Katherine was back in her natural habitat, straddling his legs and perched atop him. From the devilish glint reflecting in her eyes he knew for now she’d be in charge of the show, and he didn’t mind one bit. Damon had gotten his time of control and now it only made sense for it to be her turn after all tit for tat he amusingly thinks. “I wouldn’t have thought differently” somewhat surprised by the next action, because instead of diving in and fusing their lips together he feels her hands cupping his face, and then ever so slowly she lowers herself until she’s brushing her lips against it, and he almost doesn’t feel it, surprised by the tender action, but welcoming it none the less. With the flick of her tongue he doesn’t fight her, granting her access as he parts his mouth allowing her tongue to cross in and explore. Velvet against velvet as they participated in a sensual dance, still not yet fighting for dominance enjoying the way she was doing things. Her tongue glides over his blunt teeth, and for a moment he feels it tip against his fangs. He feels her pulling back and he can’t even bite back the displeased groan finding himself wanting to continue with kissing because when she kisses him it feels as if he’s transported to a whole other world. “My head is already big enough as it is” he comments with a rich chuckle that soon turns to a low groan as her lips begin traveling down his jaw-line and down to his throat “Katherine” her name sounding like a damn prayer slipping past his lips. Eyes trained on the movement of her mouth taking note that she was descending closer and closer to his Southern Region “then lose control.”
His gaze landing to the pair of jeans and now boxers she had just tossed to the pile of clothes “and that was done without vampire speed….impressive.” Damon wasn’t sure why he always seemed to get aroused when Katherine’s chestnut locks fell onto his chest. Back in 1864 he had been absolutely fascinated with her curls, and though the style now was different it still seemed to have the same affect on him. Dark hues trained on her, awaiting her knowing she would taunt him, her smirk being proof of that “don’t make me beg” he half growls knowing she’d take pleasure in seeing this side of him, knowing that after over a century she still had suck power over him. Shuddering in pleasure feeling her lips press a short kiss to his length, her tongue now coming out to play as she kissed the side of his cock. “Ugh” not able to hold back that groan as she rolled her hips against him, causing him in turn to do the same action. “Fuck” biting his lower lip, his blunt teeth digging into his flesh, hands reaching out fisting the comforter into his hands the moment his eyes lock on the seductive vision taking him into her mouth. Eyes rolling into the back of his head, flashes of past memories between him hitting him full force, Katherine had always been able to turn him to a withering mess, but he had forgotten how truly skilled that tongue of her was “fuck Katherine” his hands threading into luscious locks, fisting her curls around his finger and yanking her forward showing her the exact pace he wanted “right there.”
She couldn’t help but smirk, deciding to take his reply as a double meaning. “Oh. I know, It’s poking me in the leg. Very big indeed.” Katherine smirked to herself at Damon’s comment regarding the little time that she had taken removing the rest of his clothes - After all she had had experience, usually she would have just ripped them from his body and left them in pieces but that was all limited now. As Katherine trailed down she could feel his eyes on her and it only made her that more determined to drive him crazy, even more so when he asked her not to make him beg. “Perhaps..that..is…my..intention.” She whispered in between kisses along his stomach.
The moans leaving his lips were heavenly that it made her want to get even more from out of him, her teasing was driving him mad. She continued working him with her lips and tongue until she felt him fist her curls and pull her forward, her eyes widened slightly in surprise and a small moan escaped her lips sending a vibration around his cock that she knew would only heighten his pleasure. Both hands rested on either side of his hips, her thumbs began to circle over his hip bones as she she did as he instructed, moving her lips hungrily around him mixing between being fast and then awfully slow so that she was dragging this out for him. Katherine pulled back and licked her lips before blowing against his tip, sending a rush of cold air against him - She took a hold of him in her hand again and began to run her thumb around his tip feeling the pre cum that was already there. God he was perfect. She stared over at him with dark eyes before she brought her thumb to her lips and licked, wanting a hint of how he would taste. Her eyes closed in delight as she felt a pang in between her legs, she knew that she would be dripping wet again despite Damon making sure that he had lapped up every drop of her desire. Her fingers squeezed his hip. “I want you again..nice and deep..but I’m not finished with you yet..” She pumped him a few times before Katherine took him back in her mouth again and began to work him fast, this time using her hand as well moving in rhythm with her mouth at the base hoping to bring him to an orgasm that would be just as pleasurable as her’s had been.
What Elijah enjoyed most when spending time with Katherine was the fact that she wore confidence as if it were her shoes. She used to walk as if she was on a runway and her hair would bounce around her shoulders. Then she would only cast a glance towards the women that looked her way with envy reflected in their eyes and she would simply wink at the men who stared at her, knowing full well that they were under her spell at just one glance. Elijah would follow after her with a smile on his face, proud that he was with a woman who didn’t care about the others. But that had been in the past, when she was permanently seventeen and her hair wasn’t covered in grey and her bones wouldn’t crack at a single move. In a span of few weeks, she went from being this lively youthful vampire to being this human who couldn’t bear the thought of women and men looking at her differently. Elijah wasn’t convinced, however. In his eyes, she was still a beautiful woman. She had just become fragile and he would be there to hold her. But Katherine hadn’t grasped on that yet. And it was sad that she couldn’t just trust the way he looked at her and instead paid the others more mind of what they thought of her. Elijah frowned at her words and hadn’t been given the chance to respond when she pulled farther away from him, sitting back against her seat. He sighed and allowed the waiter to place the meal in front of them and once the waiter left, he picked up his utensil and forked on a piece of meat in silence. He ate though without much appetite but not because of what he was. More of because of what was happening with Katherine. He thought they could have a day out and enjoy it because they were together but instead, she was having her insecure moments because of the other people who were actually very irrelevant in this matter.
She was slowly becoming a pathetic mess - She didn’t feel much like her usual self at all now. Katherine knew that Elijah loved her, he continued to do so - She just hoped that she wouldn’t become a pity party and that at some point he would just stay with her purely because she was becoming frailer by the day. A familiar voice began to speak in the back of her mind - One that in the end always seemed to win. It told her to run. That she couldn’t let Elijah deal with this that she had to die somewhere on her own for her own sake. It was a selfish thought but she could’t help it because that’s what she was. Selfish and damn cruel. Katherine chewed on her bottom lip noting that Elijah had decided not to take the conversation even further and now awkward silence had fallen upon them when only moments ago they were happy until her vanity had taken a bashing. The waiter placed her plate in front of her and all of a sudden she had lost her appetite. Katherine raised her knife and fork and closed her eyes for a moment before she cut off a piece of meat and popped it into her mouth - Due to her tooth falling out just moments ago her gum was tender meaning she had to eat on one side of her mouth whilst trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. She didn’t want Elijah to notice she was getting worse when there was no obvious way of knowing at a glance. Wrinkles or age spots for example. She stared over at Elijah, watching him eat and for one small moment it threw her back into a memory, one that had happened long, long ago. “Do you remember that night of the banquet? When we first met?” Katherine licked her bottom lip and dabbed at the corner of her mouth with a fingertip. “I remember I sat opposite from you across the table, I found it hard to not look at you.” She smiled to herself. “You were talking with other noblemen who were seated next to you and yet whenever Klaus would speak to me your attention would soon be on me. I was only ever aware of your eyes on me.” She set down her knife and held her fork in her other hand before resting her hand on his arm. “I’m sorry.. Forgive me?”
"Ooh I’m shaking already," he chuckled when she said that she could be a scary carrot and made that face. She was too cute in his opinion, and seeing her in a carrot suit would probably only make her look more adorable. Feeling her lips against her bare arm he smiled softly, enjoying any touch from her he could get. It sent a warm feeling all through his body, making his smile only grow more when she looked up at him. He knew what it was like to lose family. He’d been about six or seven when his grandparents on his father’s side had passed. They had always played board games with he and Damon and they would spend the night sometimes. Stefan knew that he had gotten his eyes from his father, his eyes being two shades of a lighter green than Stefan’s own, and his father’s father had the same trait. His grandfather on his mother’s side was still alive, his grandmother passing before he had ever met her. He had the same blue eyes that Stefan’s mother and Damon had, that icy blue that was hard not to stare at in awe sometimes from how light they were. A part of Stefan was always jealous that Damon had her eyes and he didn’t; he always had a part of her with him every time he looked in the mirror. Stefan had been told he had his mother’s smile, but sometimes that was hard to see since he didn’t find himself smiling too often after she passed. His mother’s father always came to his football games and had been a huge part in teaching he and Damon how to drive. He was glad that his grandfather was still alive. It was like having a connection to his mother through him, and having the person that raised her help raise him. It was comforting in a way. He knew how hard it must be for his grandfather though, having the two women he loved most in his life gone too soon. He chuckled and shook his head, "I’m afraid that if I do the expectation will be set too high," he pouted. "Well that depends, do you want it to be a surprise?" he asked with a little grin. When she said that she would come to his practice he beamed, happy that she would be there in the stands to see him. He would be glad to have her there. And it would be a bonus if Adam was in a particularly hazy state today so it would be that much easier to handle him competition wise. "Great! Then afterwards we can head back to the dorm together. Fair warning though, I may smell a lot like the field after practice. So I’m sorry a head of time," he chuckled with a little smile.
"He is the epitome of what an ass is like," he said with a chuckle, thinking back to the way he had acted toward he and Katherine the days before. Adam had assumed that anything he wanted, he could conquer, including a woman like Katherine and the quarterback position against Stefan. But the pair were both slowly but surely proving the wanna be wrong, and were proud to do so. A nice dose of reality is just what a guy like Adam needed. He chuckled softly as he waited for an answer, wondering what was going through her mind after what he’d just proposed. He would be lying if the thought of doing all of those things together hadn’t crossed Stefan’s mind. But slow and steady was exactly the kind of pace he and Katherine needed, and as much as he may have wanted, really wanted those things to be something they did together, separately was the better way to go. He smiled at the peck to his cheek and couldn’t help but pout slightly when she moved, already missing her closeness. He sat up and sighed softly, watching her and listening to what she was saying as she grabbed what she needed for her shower and to get dressed afterwards. “Sounds like a good plan to me,” he said with a nod of agreement. At her thanks he nodded slightly, standing up fully, “Anytime Katherine. If you ever need to talk to me about anything okay? And thank you…this was my first time really talking to anyone about this…so thanks. It meant a lot,” he thanks her with a genuinely warm smile before she steps into the bathroom. Walking to his room he cant help but smirk to himself, seeing her clothes and his scattered around his room. It still feels almost surreal that she was really with him last night, how mind blowing and amazing last night had been for him. But he was glad that it had happened. He wouldn’t have wanted this to be any other way. He started packing up his duffel bag with football gear and clothes in it, packing a tank with some shorts, socks and football cleats along with a towel and a few water bottles from his room. After that he set out the clothes that he was going to wear while he and Katherine were out getting some lunch so he could just put the clothes on when he came out. Stefan grabbed a towel and walked out of his room when she said that he was free to take his shower, walking into the bathroom and turning the shower back on. He undressed and then stepped inside, showering himself from head to toe. After he stepped out and started drying off, he looked into the mirror and noticed some of the bruising along his neck and along his arms. He smiled at them softly, seeing them as a reminder of last night and not some sort of painful mark. After he brushed his teeth he wrapped his towel around his hips and walked over to his room, knocking on the door to see if she was still inside. “Is it safe for me to come in?” he asked with a light chuckle. He felt kind of silly since she had seen him naked when they’d been intimate last night, but still, he wanted to be courteous.
"Yes. I kinda like surprises." Her curls were sprawled out underneath her as she stared up at the ceiling, tracing the spiralling patterns above with her mind. Stefan’s words struck true when it came to Adam. There should even be a photo of him next to the definition of an ass in the dictionary along with jerk, idiot, imbecile and even more words that her brain could conjure up under pressure. The sooner he took the hint that she wasn’t interested the better, she hated the Alpha Male vibe that he had going about him if anything that was what put her off of him completely the first time that they had met when she had first arrived in the lot. It seemed Stefan had caught on to her trail of thought and he too let out a laugh which made her smile a lot more than she already was doing - She hated having to get up and leave him there lying on the floor looking as gorgeous as ever but if she hadn’t forced herself up to her feet she simply could of lied there in a heap till the end of time. Katherine had decided on a purple camisole, dark slim jeans which she would wear with her denim jacket later instead she just pulled out a black cardigan which she could wear whilst in the dorm. When she turned to listen to Stefan she was taken aback by his beauty. He was now stood in the heart of her bedroom the sun’s rays shining down on him making him look God like - He had such a beautiful body that Katherine could feel her knees begin to give way from just the sight of him. He was as perfect as perfect can be and in that moment she felt like this had been one huge dream that she didn’t want to wake up from at any moment. She had to pick up her clothes and towel just to force herself not to stare, Katherine had hold of the door knob ready to turn it only for Stefan to reply to her thanks with his own. Her face softened and her lips curved into a warm smile. She wished that she could tell him everything, perhaps one day she would - But right now wasn’t the best of times to announce her darkest secret - And it made her feel even more horrible for hiding it. It made her feel more at fault. Hiding her daughter like she was something to be ashamed of. The only person she was ashamed of was herself. Katherine’s face fell for a fraction of a second at the thought before she gave a nod. "Consider you my new agony aunt." She flashed a smile before sending him a look of understanding. "You’re welcome - And the same goes for you too Stefan. Don’t forget that." With that Katherine left the bedroom to enter the bathroom.
Katherine heard the door shut behind Stefan meaning that he was now about to hop into the shower after her now it was free. She moved into her bedroom in order to do her hair and make up, settling for brown eyeshadow and a simple layer of black mascara and instead of last night she decided to leave her lips bare. Katherine curled her hair in places that her hair needed it so she didn’t have any fly away hair and combed it before making sure everything was turned off before she left her bedroom and headed towards Stefan’s. She began smirking to herself when she saw all of the clothes askew on the floor - She began to pick up her clothes finding herself blush at the sight of her underwear and made no hesitation to pick those up feeling rather embarrassed. She was of course being silly after all Stefan was in the shower - She smiled to herself before she finished what she was doing and pulled open the door with her free hand only to have her breath taken away, Katherine wasn’t expecting what she saw when she looked up. If he was going to do this every day it was going to damn well send her into an early grave. Her eyes widened and she bit her bottom lip. “Um.. I’m completely..fine. Yes. Fine.” She beamed finding that she was stuttering, her eyes trailing down his torso and to the towel hanging on his hips - Just one little swat at it and it would fall down.. Now she really was thinking too much. Katherine blushed badly and made her eyes fixate on his face. “I was going to put yours in your wash basket for you but my hands are kinda full so I’ll just put these in mine.” She blew some of her hair from out of her face before she daringly commented. “You know when you walk around like that it’s really distracting.” She said with a shy smile before she moved towards him in order to get past. “Maybe I should walk around in my towel next time.” She whispered before she walked past him and moved towards her bedroom and threw her clothes into her wash basket. She made a mental note to remind herself to go down to the laundry room at some point so she could wash her clothes otherwise she would be sat there with a weeks worth of washing and she’d rather be on top of it every couple of days. She reached for her denim jacket and removed her cardigan before she pulled it on and un tucked her curls from out of her collar and placed a black scarf around her neck and headed out into the living area hoping that when Stefan got back he wasn’t topless otherwise her mind would be a pool of mess for the rest of the day. Then she realised that if he was at practice later today that meant another possible shower. God.
Elijah couldn’t deny that when it came to making love the only woman he could think of was Katherine, they connected on a much deeper level, a level that many people wouldn’t be able to truly comprehend. They loved one another, knew ever little soft or sensitive spot in there bodies and most of all they would go to the ends of the world to protect each other which is what he was going to do, He couldn’t lose his Katerina not after everything they had been threw. His mind soon came out of his thoughts and he focused on her, her moans, her breath, the fast beat of her heart and how she tasted, it had been so long since he had savored her sweet juices. When she climaxed all he could think was success, he had made her body react to his movements and that was just with his tongue. He soon felt her lips crash against his own and he returned her kiss filling it with passion and desire. Elijah could easily keep Katerina down on the mattress but he allowed her to have her way and turns over when she pushed him down on the mattress.
He had to admit, he did love it when she took control, his hands slowly ran up her thighs and he gave them a soft grip when he felt her lower herself down on his length, a low groan moving threw his throat. His hand ran up to rest on the side of her neck gripping lightly at her neck and pulling her soft lips down to his own planting a passionate kiss upon her lips and he soon began to thrust his own hips up miming her movements but going a bit harder everything. He could feel the juices of her core dripping down his member and the feeling of it only turned him on more. He quickly sat up and wrapped one of his arms around her small frame, his other hand running a slow path up her thigh and over her ass and he gave it a soft grip before pushing her down the entire length of his member "Katerina.." he groaned, he truly hadn’t felt this good in a long time.
The sounds leaving his lips were heavenly, divine even. Each one sent a ripple of pleasure throughout her body, spreading wider and wider as it ran throughout her veins. She was becoming a woman undone at the seams. Her hips rolled down against his, their hip bones brushing against each other - A moan escaped her already parted lips as she felt Elijah’s hand reach up to rest at the side of her neck and then ushered her to come down to his level. Both of her hands ran up his body until they were pressed together, from the heat outside and from their bodies it was fair to say that both parties were working up quite a sweat. She could feel the occasional breeze caress every couple of seconds or so making every hair on her body to stand on end. It was a comforting breeze and one that she was truly treasuring right then, Katherine squeezed his shoulders as her head lowered in order for her lips to meet with his. Soft and sensual soon became hard and passionate, his lips parting so that her tongue could massage his in the centre of his mouth only coming up for air every couple of minutes. She moaned into the back of his mouth as he raised his hips up sharply, he was deep inside of her that it almost took her breath away - Katherine moved upwards, arching herself with her eyes squeezed shut. After that she became addicted to the feeling and angled her hips so that she felt him oh so deep with every thrust. Both of her hands ran through his now already tousled hair, she began gripping on the strands whilst she groaned in pleasure along with him.
He sat upwards, changing their positions completely - She used his shoulders to balance herself as she bounced up and down in a steady rhythm against him, she was well aware of his hands moving up her thighs which was one of her weak spots, Katherine cried out biting down on her bottom lip only to moan a little more as his fingers ran over her skin. He then held her firmly in place against him, her eyes rolled into the back of her head. “Oh..God..” She drawled out before she pushed her knees down into the mattress on either side of Elijah’s legs. The way he moaned her name made her entire body melt till she was numb, He had her right where he wanted her, so much love poured out throughout her in that very moment, Katherine’s hands moved up to cup his face and she rested her forehead against his, their noses touching, lips barely touching. “I love you…so much.” She breathed. And she truly did, for months she had been angry at him, at his abandonment. But now it was like those three months had never happened. With that she kissed him again, soft this time, her lips parted and her tongue dipped into his mouth massaging his tongue, exploring his mouth before she flicked his top lip all the while she moved against him feeling that all too familiar feeling building it’s way up at the centre of her core.
I probably should have posted this a couple of weeks ago but here it is now. If you have followed me for quite some time then I’m sure you have noticed that I’m hardly as active as I used to be. To put it bluntly I have lost complete interest in watching The Vampire Diaries any further. It’s been pissing me off for quite some time and I find the storylines are just getting worse and that quite frankly there’s hardly anything to it any more and it no longer captivates me like it used to do. Plus I have been having a really interesting book obsession this year and am currently reading one book every day and it’s taking over my life :’) It’s a shame that I now feel this way about the show and that I no longer ever look on my dashboard and instead only come on here to reply to the small handful of people that I have the pleasure to write with. This doesn’t mean that I quit writing Katherine as I have been doing so for over a year now, it just simply means that I will be limited to what I write and what I post concerning my lack of knowledge of future events regarding the show. I will no longer be writing Katherine’s story past 5x11 as I haven’t watched any episode after this or The Originals for that matter. Instead I will mainly write AU’s or things on past events in earlier seasons. So I’m sorry to say that I will no longer be posting or reblogging GIF sets related to TVD and the like that is recent as I generally stay off the dashboard to see what has happened. So if anyone still wants to RP with me then my askbox is open and I always keep up to date with replies that I owe thanks to my phone app and such. So thank you anyway if you have read this and thanks to those who still follow me despite my lack of activity as of late.
Perhaps he also went along with Elena in not telling Katherine because he was upset that Katherine quickly assumed that he would do something like that to her after he promised her forever and promised he would never hurt her. He never gave her any doubt to think he was a liar and the fact that she believed in Elena angered him and upset him. He was trying to bring them together, he knew how bad of a relationship they had and him always trying to be the peace maker wanted them to work it out even if that meant he’d lose her but in the end there relationship didn’t change and he lost the woman he wanted so badly to spend the rest of his life with but she hurt him more then he would ever admit to her or anyone else. The way she looked him in the eyes and bought all the lies not even asking what happened not even doubting that it could have been Elena. She just accused him and you don’t do that to someone you love, did she even love him or was all that a lie as well. What was he saying, she looked so broken when she had taught Elijah hurt her of course she loved him but it still hurt him. His eyes moved to her when he spoke and his jaw tightened and he couldn’t hold it in anymore, he couldn’t it was too hard. “I never cheated on you!” he spoke out in anger taking a breath and shaking his head pausing for a moment, don’t yell, the zombies could be close.
"You’re sister kissed me Katherine, she said she wanted to get back at you for everything you did to her and the hard part is you didn’t even see me trying to push her away, all you did was push right to the blame that I cheated on you" he soon spoke "I kept quiet about it and didn’t tell you the truth because I wanted you and your sister to mend your fucked up relationship, I didn’t want to come in the middle of a family" he admitted once more. “How the hell do you think I felt when you accused me so fast of cheating on you and with your own fucking sister, I felt like someone had stabbed me in the heart” he shook his head and let out a breath. “I bet you also didn’t notice that your sister stole your cloths and the necklace I bought you and she was wearing them the night that happened, she tricked me into thinking she was you” he tightened his jaw a bit and licked his lips “I was going to ask you to marry me Katherine now why would I do that if I was cheating on you?” he questioned looking her in the eyes in a way that he had in the past when he was being truthful to her. "I’m not leaving you anywhere, be mad at me all you want but I’ll be damned if you go out into this world alone, I don’t give a flying crap of how strong you think you are but you aren’t leaving" and with that he soon turned away from her and moves towards the end of the truck and took a deep breathing before hoping out.
Her eyes widened at his outburst. I never cheated on you! It rang through both of her ears continuously. He was so loud that she looked around behind his shoulder quickly to make sure that there weren’t any walkers around. When she was satisfied she met his gaze once more. More and more words began to spill out past his lips, these weren’t the events that had played in her line of sight all those weeks ago. She remembered exactly what had happened, as he threw the words at her Katherine’s mind began to drift to the exact moment.
It had been a long day at work, her heels clicked as she stepped off the elevator and headed down the corridor that led to Katherine’s apartment. She held her phone to her ear using her shoulder and the side of her face. ”Hey sweetie, it’s me. I was just wondering if you wanted to meet up after you’ve finished your shift? I’ve had such an exhausting day.. And more importantly I miss you.. so call me when you’re done okay? I love you - Hope you’re out there saving lives!” She hung up, satisfied with her voice mail to Elijah as she neared the door she brought her folder closer to her chest whilst her other hand moved to her blazer pocket in order to reach her key - Now standing in front of the door her key moved to fit in the lock before she turned it anti-clockwise until she heard a click and stepped in. The moment she looked up Katherine froze. There in the living room Elena stood locking lips with the man she was in love with - Her heart shattered immediately. Katherine’s folder slipped out of her hands and made a loud THUD! on the tiled floor underneath her. Elena pushed Elijah off of her straight away and looked away - Her eyes moved slowly from her to Elijah before she lost it. “What. The. Fuck?!” Her voice was low, her tone ice cold making it all the more chilling. Elena began to explain that she had just come to her apartment in order to use Katherine’s water as her’s had been shut off, then Elijah had come here and made a move on her. Her eyes immediately moved to Elijah. “How could you do this to me!? With my own sister?! What the hell is wrong with you?! Do you get off on kissing twins?! You’re sick!” Katherine slapped him hard across the face and she fought with him some more, the more words that left her lips the more heartbroken she was. She didn’t want to be this way with Elijah, she loved him more than anything. And this broke her more than anything.
As the memory rushed back there were things that stood out to her that she hadn’t noticed in her upset state. Elena did wear Katherine’s clothes but she just had assumed that it was because she had showered there and had nothing else to change in to. But that was the thing. If she had known she was coming to the apartment to use the shower then surely she would have brought something to change in to. But what had Elijah been doing at her apartment? Because Elena had lured him there. Katherine let go of his arm and simply stared past him whilst he then went on to say that he had planned on marrying her. Katherine looked away, she couldn’t hear this. She couldn’t deal with this. Not only did Elijah reveal that she had got the wrong end of the stick but that she had been completely and utterly stupid and had thrown away the one person in her life that had meant absolutely everything to her. And that he didn’t cheat after all. It had all been her sister. Now she really did wish that a walker had got her. She wished that her sister was dead for all the pain she had caused. She couldn’t look him in the eyes any more or answer him either, she felt too ashamed with herself. She knew that they would speak about this eventually but right now she just couldn’t, Katherine needed time to process it. When Elijah hopped out of the van she let him, she didn’t pull him back or give him any sign that she was to answer him instead she simply let him leave. The rest of the group that Elijah had gathered including his siblings gathered by the truck and prepared themselves to leave - It wasn’t before long that Katherine felt the truck move and they had started driving to their next destination. Katherine needed this time between now and when they arrived at wherever it was they were going to think about all that Elijah had just said to her. That was when she felt the first tear fall down her cheek.
Jealousy wasn’t Katherine’s strongest suit. She wasn’t one to handle jealousy very smoothly and well but whenever it did occur to her, he loved the look on her face. He smiled as she tried to fight it off though her words deviated with how she tried to look. He shook his head with a chuckle at her question. “If someone were to look at you that way, you know very well that the man would end up dead before he could even know your name, Katerina,” he told her. Though when she mentioned Mr. Grey, he frowned and shook his head at the comparison. “That man comes from a cheap erotic petty excuse of a literature. I am offended to be compared with such fiction.” Then Elijah proceeded with the pretentious offended look on his face before allowing a chuckle to escape his lips once more, joining Katherine’s. It was quite irrelevant to feel the jealousy that she was feeling because she knew most of all that he only wanted her and no one else. But just as she was just laughing her jealousy off, a couple of women walked by and as they saw Katherine, they whispered not to pleasant things regarding her. He frowned and was about to say something when Katherine excused herself. As she disappeared into the bathroom, he rose to his feet and approached the women. Elijah expressed his displeasure towards their attitude and he didn’t wait for their replies anymore, going back to his seat just as Katherine walked out of the ladies’ room. He smiled when she sat next to him and he kissed her forehead gently. “You know that I love you, with or without that hat,” he whispered to her.
Despite her serious expression Katherine couldn’t help but feel rather smug that Elijah would kill a man just from looking at her the wrong way. Seeing Elijah jealous was rather rare - He could hold his cool better than most people and even when he was ripping out the hearts of people that had royally pissed him off even then there was a calmness about his demeanour that really after some thought it was more chilling than being threatening. Hearing him be offended at her comparison to what most humans of this age would see him as Katherine remained her playful expression. “Oh. So you have read it then?” She asked in a nonchalant tone of voice whilst reaching for her glass again being very teasing.
The moment she came back from the bathroom and walked back out into the restaurant she was immediately greeted with the strong smells of spices and other things food related that her mouth began to water just at the thought. Such a human gesture had been forgotten that it surprised her slightly, but Katherine being Katherine didn’t let it show on her face instead she put her best food forward and headed back to the table finding the hat had given her a new boost of confidence. From the looks of things Elijah had just come back from somewhere as well as she had caught him hovering over his seat so he could sit back down, as she joined him it seemed that she had been a little too obvious about how those two girls had affected her when really it took a lot to get any kind of hurt emotion out of Katherine. She was becoming weaker by the minute in her body and in her mind and she wasn’t very fond of it. His soft lips against her forehead caused her eyes to close and she swallowed thickly before biting her bottom lip. Her hand rested on the side of his cheek and she moved away slightly, gazing over at his face trying her best not to be sad. How could he be so kind to her? How could he collect himself knowing what was happening to her? Thing is she was hiding most of the symptoms now, as far as he was aware she had lost only one tooth and her hair was greying and that was all he didn’t know the other few things. She just hoped he wouldn’t be able to sense the blood in her mouth that may have lingered with the loss of yet another. She tugged on the hat knowing he had noticed it. “I know, but I just want to forget. That’s all that I want. And people are making it hard for me to do that. I mean, come on Elijah people are staring at us and they think that you are this ridiculously handsome young guy and that I’m too.. old for you. When really you were hundreds of years old by the time I was born…” She closed her eyes. “And now that just made it sound really creepy. Just forget I said that.” Luckily just as she sat back in her seat, putting some distance between her and Elijah a waiter (thank God) arrived with their food and placed it in front of them. The sooner she had this meal and got her hair dye the better.
