Want Vs Need @ FF.net
Summary: When it comes to Klaus, the line between what Caroline wants and what she needs gets a little blurred (one-shot, set during S4).
“I take it you’re not having a good time then?” Klaus replied with a hint of amusement.
“In a word, no.” Finding no other reason to fiddle with her shoe, Caroline sat up straight and acknowledged him, her eyes flickering briefly over his body. The asshole definitely knew how to wear a suit and tie. “What are you even doing here anyway? Are you planning on gate crashing every dance this school holds?”
He smiled at her, unaffected by her tone. “Only the ones you attend, sweetheart.”
“Real cute.” She crossed her legs, and folded her arms for good measure. “Look, I don’t really have time for your ‘let’s lay on the charming dimples and accent’ thing, so why don’t you just call it a night and go home?”
“So you do think I’m charming?” he smirked.
Caroline rolled her eyes. “You’re really big on selective hearing, aren’t you?”
“No, I hear everything,” said Klaus. “Like about your pathetic little boyfriend going AWOL for instance.”
“Don’t act like this was firsthand news to you,” she bitterly replied.
“It wasn’t,” he admitted. “But your take on the whole situation is.” A lazy smile crossed his features. “I can help you to forget all about him. Just say the word.”
