He sighed heading back up the driveway, avoiding all the workers who seemed to be carrying things. He finally snuck his way inside and looked around. He spotted Bonnie and smiled, waving slightly. But he had come to see his sister, he spotted her and held up one finger to signify to just wait. Then he rushed after her.
“Elena!” He said coming up beside her.”Hey.”
“So do you know why Klaus is doing all this?” He gestured around him at the fancy decorations.
Is it to say that you can leave? He wondered hopefully.
“So, are you letting Elena leave?” Said with a cat like smile, before she then realized he had something for Caroline. “What is it with Miss Sunshine anways? Always so chipper. I swear, if she farted it would be a rainbow.”
He stood from his seat, grabbing a glass of half finished scotch he had. His face a bit more stern. I suggest that tonight you play the adoring Sistah and cheery High School Cheerleader. Be nice to Caroline and my Guests. None of your pouting. It’s a party after all. His tone lightened again, just like that and he was smiling at her, albeit with that sinister edge that always existed in his eyes.
Though he smiled after saying this, every word was meant with serious intent, that if she didn’t play nice, that Rebekah would pay the price. She knew him better than to cross him, especially when he gave her that sinister look.
“A party?….More like a wake.”
That said, she spun on her heel and strolled out of the private den. Hearing the girl’s laughter and conversation, Rebekah pursed her lips, and returned upstairs to her room. Oh, she would make sure she looked radiant for this party, and be the perfect sister as her brother ordered. But after the party….all bets were off.
Jeremy was handed a center piece.
Jeremy nodded and looked around before following his sister outside, leaving the piece on a table.
He made a face like he was only considering asking Bonnie.
“You think? Maybe I will, before the whole party thing.” He asked smiling at his sister.” So he is letting you go out?”
“The generosity of Klaus is infinite!” He said loudly and smiled at his sister. He sighed once again.” But you know this is all going to be under the ever watchful eye of his ‘Helping Hands’ right?”
Jeremy gestured to the few people that seemed to be watching them intently.
“You would think that they would stare a little less, considering this is my reunion with my sister.” He said. Then he stopped walking, and looked at Elena, a little concerned.” What about you? How has the great and ever modest Elena been?”
