The Teacher and the Student
A charismatic teacher and an intelligent and devoted student may just find the comfort that they seek for in one another on prom night.
Caroline sat in the white limousine with her friends while their dates went into the liquor store with their fake I.D.’s.. Caroline was in the limousine with her best friends Bonnie Bennett, Elena Gilbert, and Katherine Gilbert. Caroline’s date was Tyler Lockwood and she still couldn’t believe that he asked her out. She would have never thought that he found her interesting because she was a bit of a book worm while he was the quarterback of the football team. Caroline was still known as one of the popular girl’s, but she thought that Tyler was out of her league.
“Care, relax!” Katherine ordered as she eyed the blonde. Katherine was Elena’s identical twin sister and she had long curly brown hair that was to the side for prom. She had a red broche that matched her sinfully tight spaghetti strapped red dress that showed her bare back.
“I am relaxed.” Caroline defended herself as she smoothed out her gown.
“No, you aren’t! I get it, the hot jock asked you to prom and now you’re all giddy and nervous hoping that you won’t make a fool out of yourself, but you will make a fool out of yourself if you keep on jumping in your seat like some five year old kid.” She told her.
“Care, don’t listen to my sister. As you know, she can be quite rude when things don’t go her way.”
“I wanted Mason to ask me to prom, but Travis did and now I’m stuck with him.” Katherine whined like a petulant child.
“You didn’t have to accept, you know.” Bonnie chimed in. She had beautiful tanned skin and she was rocking a short bob. She wore a gray gown that was shorter in the front and longer in the back.
“Then why did you?” Caroline asked her as she moved her curly blonde hair out of her eyes.
“I felt bad for him.” She admitted as she sighed heavily.
“Well then that is your own fault.”Elena shrugged.
“Shut up! Stefan Salvatore asked you to be his prom date. Do you know how hot Stefan Salvatore is?”
“I didn’t only accept his invitation because of how attractive he is. He’s sweet, kind, and caring and I like that about him.”
“Sure you do, ‘Lena.” Katherine winked.
“Guys! Why did Tyler ask me to prom? I mean we’re so different and I would never in a million years think that he would.” Caroline told them as she inhaled a shaky breath.
“Maybe he wants a good girl.” Elena shrugged.
“Or maybe he just wants to fuck you.” Katherine chimed in as she raised one of her eyebrows at her best friend.
“Not helping, Kat!” Caroline cried out and Bonnie nudged the brunette on the arm.
“This is what happens when my sister joins us.” Elena told the duo as she shook her head. Elena wore a navy blue dress that was one-shouldered. Rhinestones covered the right part of her dress and some of her side was visible.
“Don’t hate, Elena.” Katherine ordered as she took out her compact mirror and fixed her red lipstick.
They ended their conversation when their dates arrived with a couple of bottles of tequila and Caroline tried to get her ragged breathing under control. She had to hope that the night would go smoothly or else her prom night would be ruined and she hate her last school related party forever.
The teachers that were going to be chaperoning the prom were already at the banquet hall. They were making sure that everything was in place.
Some of the students were already at the restaurant and they were talking amongst themselves and taking pictures of themselves and one another.
The photographer was setting up his equipment and the prom was set to start at seven. It was now six thirty and most of the students would probably be arriving fashionably late.
"Klaus," Elijah said as he walked over to his younger brother and fellow colleague.
Elijah was the assistant principal of of the English department and Klaus was a history teacher that taught American History, Government, and Economics.
"Brother, I didn’t think that you would be here." Klaus told him as he looked over at his brother.
It wasn’t much of a surprise to him to be seeing his oldest brother in a black suit and crisp white dress shirt because he always wore business attire whether it be to work or anywhere else.
"I almost forgot how you look in a suit." Elijah told him as he looked his brother’s outfit over.
Klaus wore a white dress shirt and a black suit just like Elijah did. Klaus had dirty blonde hair and stormy blue-gray eyes while Elijah had dark hair and chocolate brown eyes.
"Don’t be so dramatic, big brother…" Klaus said as his voice drifted off and he looked around the banquet hall that was quickly beginning to fill up.
“I am simply stating the facts, Niklaus… You never were one to dress accurately, but it looks like tonight has changed that.”
“Meaning what?” Klaus questioned as he eyed his brother with a curious gleam in his eyes.
“Meaning that Miss. O’Connell will be here and she will be dressed appropriately… You want her to show an interest in you, don’t you?”
“Um… I don’t know where you got that from, but Camille and I are friends and that is as far as it’s going to go.” He reassured him as he shook his shoulders at the thought of being in an actual relationship with her.
“If you say so…” Elijah shrugged as his eyes lit up with— what was that? Mischief?
“Okay, you’re obviously already—” Klaus started, but he was struck speechless when he looked towards the front of the banquet hall.
His eyes landed on Caroline Forbes, his student of two years and his eyes roamed over her body. She wore a beautiful blue strapless gown that was faded at the bottom. There was glittering detail which traveled the length of her slender frame, further accentuating the slope of her hips and he had to force himself to look away.
It was in no way appropriate to be doing what it was that he was doing. Him being one of the younger teachers did not excuse his wandering eyes and he quickly scolded himself for even looking at his student so closely.
“You were saying?” Elijah questioned as he eyed his brother, suspiciously.
“Forget it.” Klaus immediately replied before he left his older brother to his own devices.
The history teacher needed something to drink that was stronger than the fruit punch.
He knew that he had to walk past Caroline in order to leave the banquet hall and get to the bar that was in the next room, but he didn’t care. It’s not like he would stop and have a full blown conversation with her.
As Klaus walked towards the exit of the banquet hall, Caroline and her friends noticed him and they waved at them. Klaus nodded in acknowledgement before he walked past her.
Once he was at the bar, he ran into a couple of his colleagues. The teachers were allowed to have a couple of drinks because the administration knew how difficult it would be to have to chaperone a bunch of energetic teenagers.
Klaus ordered himself a glass of bourbon and he sat down beside Marcel Gerard, a global history teacher and nodded at him.
“How is it out there?” Marcel questioned as he nursed his own glass of bourbon.
“It’s not as full yet, but they are quickly arriving. And on time, too! Who would’ve thought?” He said as he threw his head back and allowed the scorching liquor to travel down his throat.
“Easy there, Klaus.” A voice came from behind him.
He turned around and he threw Camille one of his smiles.
“Camille, welcome aboard.” Marcel told her because it was her first year teaching at the school.
“Thanks… So, are there any pointers that you have for me? I know how to control my students while in the classroom, but I doubt I can when they’re grinding against one another.”
“Just believe in yourself.” Klaus simply said and Marcel nodded in agreement.
“Don’t think about it too much. I’m sure tonight will go smoothly… We’ll probably have a fight or two, but other than that everything should go well.” Klaus’ friend and colleague told her.
“Great…” Her voice drifted off.
The night progressed and the blonde was having a lot more fun than she anticipated too. She was dancing with her friends and Tyler and she felt the smile on her lips never wavering.
When the upbeat song ended, she felt Tyler’s hand on her arm. Caroline looked over at him with her big smile.
“Do you want to take a walk with me?” Tyler asked her as he wiggled his eyebrows at her.
“Sure,” she shouted over the loud music, not bothering to understand the wiggling of his eyebrows.
The two smiled at one another before Tyler took her hand into his own. They walked towards the exit of the banquet hall and Klaus happened to be by the door watching the crowd like some creeper. The teachers were standing on every corner because a cat fight broke out in the middle of the dancefloor about an hour ago.
He spotted them and then he looked over at Tyler with his eyes narrowed. He never did like the captain of the football team because he was so stuck-up and selfish and he couldn’t for the life of him understand why such an innocent girl such as Caroline was with him. Perhaps she was with him because opposites attracted.
“Mr. Mikaelson,” Tyler said as he nodded at his former American History teacher.
“Tyler,” he acknowledged before he smiled at the blonde.
The blonde smiled back at him and her eyes wandered over his body. He wore a black suit and white dress shirt. He wore no tie and the first two buttons of his dress shirt were unbuttoned. He looked oddly handsome, she realized as they walked past him.
Once Caroline and Tyler were outside, Tyler walked over to the limousine with his date in tow. As soon as they arrived at the limousine, Tyler went around to the driver and ordered him to take a walk. The elderly man didn’t argue much because he knew that there wasn’t much of a point. The elderly driver assumed that the rude boy wanted him to take a walk because he had some plans for the bubbly blonde that was literally jogging in her place in excitement.
Once the two were alone, Tyler grabbed Caroline’s waist and pulled her against his chest. His lips pressed against her own and she didn’t respond because she was in shock.
A while later, her lips starting moving with his because she was all for the makeout session that was about to ensue with the hot quarterback.
They broke apart in an effort to inhale some air and Tyler opened the limo door before he got inside. The blonde looked down at him confused and assumed that he just wanted to turn on the air conditioner. She got into the limo and sat down beside him.
Tyler’s dark eyes were lit up with lust and mischief and he leaned into Caroline once again. Their lips met and she closed her eyes while his kissing got rougher as he grinded against her. He bent down and found his way inside of her gown and Caroline didn’t register what he was doing before it was too late.
She felt his beefy hands on the skin of her leg and her eyes darted open in shock.
“Wh— what are you doing?” Caroline stammered as she tried to get him to remove her hand from her thigh.
“What do you mean what am I doing? I’m getting ready to have sex…” Tyler told her as if it was the most simple thing to say.
“I— I never agreed on having sex with you.” She told him as she shook her head rapidly.
“Care, come on… You only agreed to take a walk with me because when I wiggled my eyebrows, I meant let’s have sex.”
“Well then, I must have misinterpreted the wiggling of your eyebrows. I don’t want to have sex.” She quickly said. “I did not plan on having sex with anyone tonight.” The blonde stressed.
“Seriously!?” He shouted, irritated.
He removed his hand from her thigh and he pushed past her and opened the car door. He climbed out of the car and left Caroline alone in the car with her eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
A couple of minutes later, Caroline got out of the limousine and made her way back inside the restaurant. She still felt as confused as ever as she entered the banquet hall. Her teacher was gone and her eyes darted around the room in an attempt to find Tyler.
She soon found him grinding against Hayley Marshall and her jaw dropped at the sight.
Was he seriously doing this now that she told him that she wasn’t going to have sex with him?
Bonnie walked over to her with a frown on her lips. Caroline could feel the moisture building up in her eyes and she knew that she was going to ruin her makeup if her tears escaped her eyes.
“Caro…” Bonnie began before Caroline shook her head and turned away from her best friend.
“Caroline!” Bonnie shouted, but the blonde ignored her as she ran out of the banquet hall.
Her vision was getting blurry and she wiped at her eyes without bothering to look at the direction that she was going.
She felt herself falling on top of someone and she tried to remove the tears that were blurring her vision. Her hands landed on a strong chest and she could feel her cheeks flush.
“Oof,” she heard.
When her vision finally cleared, she realized that she was on top of her teacher. She clamped her hand over her mouth and she shook her head in embarrassment.
“I— I’m so sorry, Mr. Mikaelson.” She apologized quickly before she tried to stand up in her stupid and uncomfortable heels.
Klaus was able to stand up before her and he extended his hand for her to take. His student looked up at him with moisture in her eyes and his heart tugged at his chest.
“I am so sorry, Mr. Mikaelson.” She repeated as she wiped at her eyes.
“It’s fine,” he reassured her. “Don’t worry about it.” Klaus added.
Caroline nodded before she excused herself and turned away from him. She had to make sure that her eyeliner and mascara didn’t smudge.
“Caroline… Are you alright?” Klaus called to her and she slowly turned around.
“Yes… I’m fine. Thank you for your concern, Mr. Mikaelson.” She thanked him, genuinely.
Klaus nodded before he turned away from her and walked back into the banquet hall.
Caroline entered the bathroom and she immediately made her way towards the mirror. Thankfully, her makeup looked fine and she sighed in relief. She fixed her blonde curls and then left the bathroom.
She didn’t want to go back into the banquet hall and so she decided to sit on the bench that was by the waterfall that was against the wall outside.
Once she was outside, she sat down on the bench and put her face in her hands.
Could this night get any worse?
Klaus was standing in his corner as he was watched the students dance to the music. He was getting tired and bored, but he knew that he couldn’t exactly leave just yet. There were still two hours left until the prom finished and he hoped that he would have the strength to endure the next two hours that were bound to be hectic.
As his eyes were roaming over the room, he spotted Tyler Lockwood making out with some girl against the wall and his hands clenched into fists.
That was probably why Caroline had tears in her eyes, he realized.
Shaking his head, he crossed his arms over his chest and sighed heavily. He could feel a headache coming on.
Klaus was thinking about the final essays that he had to grade, but he was brought out of his reverie when he felt a tap on his shoulder.
The history teacher pivoted and he came face to face with Elena Gilbert. Elena was also his student and she was biting down on her bottom lip.
“Is everything alright, Elena?” Klaus asked her over the music that was ending. A slow song came on afterwards.
“Yeah, it’s just I haven’t seen Caroline in a while… Have you seen her?” She asked him.
“I saw her about half an hour ago…” He replied.
“Oh… Where did she go?” She asked.
“She was headed to the restroom.” Klaus told her before they were interrupted by Stefan Salvatore.
“Mr. Mikaelson! How is everything?” His favorite male student asked.
“Everything is fine, Stefan.” He smiled. “How are you?”
“I am doing well and I was wondering if Elena would join me for a dance.”
“Of course,” she blushed in his direction before he reached for her hand gently.
“I’ll find Caroline, Elena… I’m sure she’s around here somewhere.” Klaus told her.
The brunette nodded and thanked him before she left the teacher alone.
Klaus sighed as he left the banquet hall. He knew that she had to be around there somewhere…
He looked into the bar and then into the bathroom, but she wasn’t there. He decided that she was probably outside and so that was where he went.
Klaus spotted her sitting on the bench outside. She had her face in her hands and he sighed sadly before he sat down beside her.
“Elena was looking for you.” He told her.
Caroline looked over at him with shock and she put her hand on her heart.
“You scared me.” She laughed as she shook her head.
“I apologize,” he apologized. “Are you sure that you’re alright?”
“I don’t know… You tell me… So, I accepted Tyler’s invitation in hopes that he actually liked me for who I was, but it turns out that he only invited me because he wanted to have sex.” She told her teacher even though she knew that it was informal and impolite.
“Ah, yes… The teenage years are flashing through my mind at the moment.” He chuckled.
“Ugh… Don’t tell me that you were like that jerk.”
“Oh, I wasn’t… I was a sweet talker when it came to women. I would like to think that I still am. It makes me feel young again.”
“Oh, come on, Mr. Mikaelson… You can’t be over thirty. I know that as a fact.”
“Subtract five from thirty and there is my age.” He told her even though he wasn’t one to share his personal life.
“Twenty five! You’re still a baby.” She responded as a smile lit up her beautiful face.
“Sure I am.” He shrugged. “And Caroline… Try not to take what Tyler did to you to heart… Guys that are your age have only one thing in mind which is…”
“Sex. I get it.” She told him.
“Good.” He smiled. “You have a whole life ahead of you and you’re beautiful…” Klaus told her before he could stop himself.
“Really?” She wondered as she straightened her dress.
“Yes,” he sighed because he knew that there wasn’t much of a reason to deny what he said because it was the truth.
“Thank you.” She thanked him as she looked him right in the eyes.
“You’re welcome… If you have to talk to someone, I’m always—”
Klaus’ words were cut off when Caroline’s lips landed on his. She didn’t know what she was doing, but she just did it. Klaus’ eyes closed immediately when he felt her lips on his own and he could hear his mind screaming at him to stop the nonsense because this wasn’t allowed, but he ignored it.
He caressed her cheeks as their lips moved in perfect sync.
Caroline pulled away first and she bit down on her bottom lip so hard that she drew blood.
“Oh my god!” She cried out. “I am so sorry! I didn’t mean to!” She added as she quickly stood up and ran down the stairs and into the parking lot.
Klaus’ jaw dropped and he immediately darted after her.
It was dark out and the full moon was glistening on him. Once he reached her, he put his hand on her arm to stop her from going any further.
Caroline shut her eyes, but she turned around to face him.
“I am so—” She started, but was cut off when Klaus’ lips met hers.
He wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to himself. Their lips moved together and Klaus pulled away shortly after.
“Uh…” Caroline started.
“You have no idea how much I wanted to do that.” He confessed even though he knew that it was wrong and a horrible mistake.
“Likewise,” she replied as a small smile graced her lips.
“What is this?” The blonde questioned as she looked around the parking lot and sighed when she realized that they were alone.
“Whatever you want it to be.”
“I want it to be something that it shouldn’t be.”
“Me too,” he admitted as a heavy sigh left his lips.
“Time will tell?”
“Time will tell,” she nodded in agreement.

Haters will see you walk on water and say it’s because you can’t swim.
Julie would be capable of killing Caroline so no more Klaroline…
Omfg no don’t say that
Can you imagine klaus
Oh God oh god oh god
Well, knowing Julie’s writing, Klaus wouldn’t even give a fuck…
This hurt me because it’s a possibility and it sucks.
No shit Julie Plec ever did made me gave up on Klaroline. Go kill of Caroline, I’ll still be shipping it (y)
P.s.: They wouldn’t kill her off, she may have no real storyline, but she’ll always must be there because she’s the only one taking no shit and speaking out what everyone else does. Besides that they won’t kill her off because of Stefan
If you don’t like us, remember it’s mind over matter; we don’t mind and you don’t matter.
If I’ve watched this show for 9 years waiting for Ted to find the love of his life only for him to lose her, I’m going to be so done and depressed.
THAT’S LIKE THE WORST THING EVER. IT’S A FREAKING COMEDY SHOW. LET TED BE HAPPY JUST ONCE PLEASE.
Anonymous asked: this is a bit of a rambly mess and was just meant to be more of a defense of Hayley rather than a comprehensive reply, but it may have mutated to something else. Apologies. Honestly, tbh, I can't take "feminist" analyses of characters seriously from Klaroliners. Because Klaroline, as a ship is the opposite of feminist. And that's alright, I guess, if that's the kind of thing you like. But don't pretend like it isn't based on abuse and manipulation and coercion, because IT IS
Name me please ONE ship in a VAMPIRE show is not based in abuse, manipulation and coercion. Especially in TVD. One.
And who exactly told you that specifically me was attracted to Klaroline because I wanted to see a beautiful human and ethical relationship. I wanted a dark controversial VAMPIRE relationship with everything that brought. Because Klaroline has been a relationship based on manipulation yes but who manipulated whom exactly if we are talking by these terms? (Caroline was the one that kept playing Klaus and always manipulated him so she could get what she wanted; emotionally Caroline has been the great manipulator when it came to Klaus and forced reactions at him that no one else did in a thousand years so from a feminist point of view and from a viewer that likes to read through the lines and not just stand on the surface /and not just a enjoy supposedly strong characters with forced bitchy attitudes because that is the only thing that sales/ I have to say that I was quite satisfied. Not completely because the writers failed to deliver their true potential but generally yes) Klaroline was an amoral game that I really enjoyed because I had a sense to recognize the kind of the show I was watching.
Also feminism? (I prefer equality thank you very much)… A big word for people that like a character that supposedly is a drifter and yet wears expensive clothes and drives expensive cars (with no financial sources) and then betrays her own kind for a flash drive and then goes and lives in expensive mansions due to a fetus and not because of her worth. I do not know. People like these always caused a distaste at me.
Is that not abusive? Klayley fans argument with Klaroline being manipulative and abusive, but the same goes for Klayley. The only difference is that Caroline still looks hot while being “abused” by Klaus while Hayley .. well, the picture speaks for itself.
Someone should tell The Originals that you know you are doing something wrong when an adolescent playing a re-imagined childhood icon on Once Upon a TIme is scarier than the supposed most powerful, feared, menacing, cunning, and inherently violent and deadly being that ever existed.
This is more intimidating
than episode after episode of this
the more I think about it, Klaus has basically become King John from Disney’s Robin Hood…
