She looked to Klaus and saw the playful face, which came of no surprise to her. She knew he wouldn’t tell them which in turn she didn’t like. She rolled her eyes at his reply and knew for definite, he had something up his sleeve. After all, he always did. He was Klaus. She sighed quietly knowing her best friend wasn’t going to be released. This made her angry but, she didn’t show it. The party was what was taking her mind off of everything from being angry at Klaus for keeping her best friends prisoner to who she thought was Elena at her home when it wasn’t and her own mother shooting at her.
Her eyes then fell upon Rebekah as she appeared, she rolled her eyes at what Rebekah said, before she could say anything, Rebekah was gone as quickly as she had appeared. Caroline was glad she had left, as it meant the female original couldn’t rain on her parade because, in all honesty, Caroline felt like she could explode.
Getting back to work, she looked back to the siblings and saw Elena indicate they were heading out. She nodded that it was fine with her and watched the two go outside. She glanced around, she was the only one left with the compelled busying around like bees. This moment made her feel alone again. Not that she would ever admit it or show it. She snapped out of it and added the finishing touches in each room. She felt her phone go off and she answered it, it was the caterer.
Standing by the window and watching as Jeremy and Elena walked down to the small water meadow, Jenna sensed someone coming into the room. She wasn’t good at appearing or reappearing but, it was only Bonnie, so she appeared again. Stood at an angle leaning on the dresser. ‘Your not hiding up here because you don’t want to face Jeremy. Are you? Jenna smiled a little and walked towards Bonnie, sitting on the floor with her. ‘Because I can tell your nervous and worried. You feel the power and that something is going to happen, too. Don’t you? Jenna stayed quiet after that and watched Bonnie’s expirations.
Caroline made her way through the house, she could hear Bonnie talking to someone and wondered who but, continued on. Eventually, she came across his private study and she knocked. Giving him a few minutes before opening the door. She entered, “Looks like your having lots of fun,” she said as she leaned against the door frame with her arms folded. “Just thought I’d let you know that everything is all set for the party this evening. Well, the house is at least,” she added as her eyes took in the study. This was probably the room he came to escape, well, other then his bedroom. “So, now the house is done Elena and Bonnie both need dresses for the party so, I was thinking of taking them shopping and getting dressed at Elena’s. And, then we’ll arrive before the party,” she added. Or at least Elena cause we can both surprise Bonnie with a dress, after all, Jeremy will want to talk to her, she thought. “Then after the party maybe Elena, Bonnie and myself could have a sleepover at Elena’s and then tomorrow… Well, you know,” she suggested, the latter referring to her best friends return here. She looked at him and smiled again as she awaited his response.
“Yeeeah, But at least I’m happy to go out. And look, there leaving now, Caroline must have finished because, I think that’s the caterer. There supposed to listen to the Sargent remember?” She laughed again and reaching a few feet away fro the small meadow, she turn to look at Jeremy who stopped and was being serious now. taking a deep breath and finally responded.
“I’m…not sure what I am. On once side, I feel confused over my feelings for Damon and Stefan is on one-word bases with me. I still love him but….I don’t know. On the other hand, being here with Klaus has given me a break from the outside world and I can think, sort of. I’m happy no vampire-killings or I’m-going-to-kill-so-and-so stuff has happed. Its been quiet, apart from me being here. I missed you.” She missed talking to her brother and she was happy that he knew about all of it now. She hated him being in dangers way but, she was with her now and that was all that mattered.
“So Klaus hasn’t threatened me?” Jeremy asked sarcastically.” Nevermind, I haven’t seen my sister in a while, and I don’t want to ruin it with Klaus talk, or Damon or Stefan talk, and heck, not even Bonnie talk.”
“So just name a topic, any topic, and we can talk about that.” He said.
He smirked slightly as he watched everyone leave.
“Alright, I know exactly what to talk about. I saw Jenna. Is that a valid topic?” She smiled wide and watched him carefully. Bonnie had told her how her and Jeremy were both able to see Jenna and now, she was able to see her too. She knew it would be a better topic because it was a happy one. Jenna made things feel less lonely for her and Jeremy when she was alive. And now that she was here, for who knows how long, she made it feel like that for her again. She hope for Jeremy, too. At least a little.
“That’s great!” He said happily.” Are you able to talk to her? How are you able to see her?”
Then he stopped.
“Wait, did you die?” He asked looking at her.” Nevermind, where was the last place you saw her?”
He looked around, not seeing the familiar face of his sister. Then he thought of Tatia, who said she saw him thinking of everyone he loved. He began to think of them again briefly, before turning back to his sister.
He said looking at her.
“But since you can see her now, I guess you don’t have to worry about it.” He shrugged.” So do you have any idea when Klaus is going to let you out?”
He looked at his sister, breaking his own rule of “No Business talk.”
He looked around and sighed.
“Sorry, forgot. So Jenna?” He asked.” MAybe she is in the room. WIth Bonnie.”
He thought for a few seconds.
“How should I ask her?” He said to Elena.” Just the regular will you go with me?”
He looked at his sister very curious.
“Allright.” He said.” So what kind of dress are you going to get, and a bigger question, who are you going with?”
He looked at his sister, a little glint in his eyes.
“Damon or Stefan?” He asked playfully nudging his sister. He looked up.” So the decorating is done, now what are we supposed to do around here?”
He loved spending time with his sister, but he was just a little uneasy by the house of an original.
Making her way downstairs, she grabbed Elena’s favourite drink since there was plenty of beverages for the night, more than plenty. She then went outside and went over to the Gilbert siblings. “Firstly, one that’s going to make her absolutely gorgeous,” she replied to Jeremy. “As for who. Now that’s to be a surprise, Jeremy,” she added with a wink. Though, she hoped it would be Stefan. However, if he was still down in the dumps it would be a bit tricky. Hope he’s snapped out of it, she thought. If not then it’d be Damon. In the end, it was Elena’s choice and she’d stand by her or whoever asked Elena first.
Hearing the latter, Caroline smiled, “Well, Jeremy, you are going to go talk to Bonnie and ask her to the party whilst your sister and I go get dresses,” she said.
Watching the friends all thread arms to leave for their shopping trip, Rebekah tapped her foot as she saw that they were leaving Jeremy behind. Anyone would think he would just LOVE to go watch his sister shop for dresses. Rebekah didn’t need to go shopping, or have friends. She was an original, an immortal and didn’t need anyone – at least that is what she kept telling herself. If she did have someone, Klaus would make damn sure…it didn’t last.
“So your coming to the party dressed like…that, Jeremy?” Rebekah sang out, raising a well shaped brow.
