Chapter one:

The Forbes Residence, Mystic Falls:

Christmas was Hope’s favourite time of the year. Christmas meant seeing all her family together again. Their grandma Liz is the sheriff of Mystic Falls, she’s a very important part of the town, she barely had holidays, which is why Christmas is so important. It’s the only time of the year when she doesn’t work.

Even though the twins loved Mystic Falls, the ride it was horrible. Thirteen hours in a car, only stopping once or twice to sleep and get some food. It was exhausting. Their aunt Kat always suggests to take a plane but since their aunt Hayley is afraid of them they always have to drive from New Orleans to Mystic falls.

They arrived to Mystic Falls yesterday, December 12th. It was a cold snowy day and they were very tired form the trip. The first thing they did was hug their grandma and then they went to see a movie in the living room, drinking hot chocolate.

“Mom, where’s aunt Kat? She said she would watch a movie with us tonight.” The eleven year old blonde girl asked.

“She went to see her sister.” Her aunt replied covering herself with her grey wool blanket.

“But I thought they hated each other. She always calls her twin the evil doppelganger.” The honey haired girl replied.

“They have a complicated relationship. Aren’t you girls tired?” Their mother asked.

“It’s not that complicated mom, aunt Kat was dating her boyfriend Damon and then he cheated on her with her twin sister Elena. And no mom we’re not tired. Right, Hope?” Lizzie replied sassily.

“How come we’ve never meet Elena?” Hope asked.

“Because we live in New Orleans with aunt Kat and she hates Elena.” Lizzie told to her sister.

“Why did aunt Kat’s ex boyfriend cheated on her? I mean I seen pictures of Elena and aunt Kat and they look the same.” Hope asked once again.

“Why are you girls suddenly gossiping about Katherine?” Hayley stared at her nieces curiously.

“Isn’t it obvious? We’re bored. We saw this movie at least 20 times. Besides we won’t get the Christmas gifts until 24th.”Hope rolled her eyes.

“We want new cell phones mom. And a new piano and more art supplies and clothes...” Lizzie kept telling all the things they both wanted.

“Okay, okay… First of everything it’s a tradition to watch ‘Home Alone’ in Christmas, and second of it I won’t buy you girls new phones, I won’t buy you a new piano either but yes to the art supplies and clothes.” Caroline smiled at her daughters.

“But mom the new phones are a necessity!” The twins said at the same time.

“Your phones aren’t even a year old and they work perfectly fine.” Caroline stared at her daughters amused.

“Okay fine… But mom I wanted to ask you something.” Hope shyly said.

“Tell me, baby.” Her mother sweetly smiled at her.

“You see… You know Lizzie and me are artists right? True she prefers playing the piano rather than painting like I do but… My favourite artist ever is here in Mystic Falls he is going to have an art exhibition tomorrow. Can we please go?” Hope gave her the puppy dog face to make her mom say yes.

“I love painting as much as I love to play the piano, Hope. Besides I don’t get why you like Klaus Mikaelson so much, yes he does paint really well but there are other artists better than him!” Lizzie innocently said.

“But Klaus Mikaelson is the best artist of this century Lizzie!” Hope defended her favourite artist.

“Just wait until I grow up, I will teach them what art is truly about.” The blonde girl sassily replied.

Caroline went pale when her youngest daughter mentioned Klaus. The last time Caroline saw Klaus she was only sixteen and they didn’t end up in the best terms. Actually, the things between them were horrible. She never wanted to see his face ever again, he was dead to her.

Twelve years ago:

Caroline was madly in love. She had a crush on Klaus for years and when she was sixteen, he asked her out which she immediately accepted. He had a bad reputation, he barely spoke to anyone from school except Damon Salvatore and his two siblings Rebekah and Kol. But he was one of the most popular guys from high school. He was very handsome, mysterious, he liked art, his British accent was really attractive and he had the cutest dimples every time he smiled.

After seven months, together Caroline and Klaus had sex for the first time. It was a very important moment for Caroline. Since she was fourteen, she has been dealing with bulimia but she managed to keep it a secret from everyone. She had a very low self-esteem even though she was a cheerleader and one of the most popular girls in the high school. Everyone always choose Elena and Katherine before her, she was always the second choice until Klaus. He made her feel wanted and special but most importantly, when she was in his arms she felt loved.

On their third month, Klaus found Caroline vomiting in her bathroom. He was shocked when he saw his girlfriend doing that. He pulled her hand away from her mouth and kneeled beside her still holding her small hand. With his other hand he pulled her to him, hugging her while she cried in his chest.

“Why?” Klaus softy asked.

“It’s nothing important let’s just forget it.” Caroline whispered not looking at him.

“For how long you’ve done this, Caroline?” Klaus ignored her last answer and asked again.

“I don’t want to talk about it, Klaus. Just forget it happened.” The sixteen year old teen snapped at her boyfriend.

“For how long Caroline?” He kept questioning her until she told him the truth.

“Since I was 14. I stopped when we started to date but…” She covered her face and cried once again.

“It’s okay sweetheart you know I’ll always be by your side just tell me what happened.” Klaus played with her golden locks.

“It’s my dad Bill. After saying I was not enough and constantly be remind me that I was nothing to him, he made me live a living hell until he finally left my mom. And you want to know the best part? He isn’t my father. My entire existence is a lie.” Caroline confessed.

“Most fathers are worthless, love. You deserve so much better than him. One day he’ll pay for everything he did to you I promise you.” Klaus darkly whispered.

“It’s seems Hayley and I are full sisters. Which makes me really happy, it really does. But my real dad is dead. I will never be able to meet him not even once.” Caroline cried harder.

“Don’t cry, love. If he was still alive he would be proud, Caroline. Does anybody know about what you do?” Klaus kissed her forehead.

Caroline shocked her head whispering once again. “No one knows. Or they are just too busy and choose to ignore it.”

“Promise me you’ll never do it again.” The eighteen year old guy begged.

“I promise.” Caroline swore to him.

However, their perfect relationship took a turn to the worst after Caroline slept with him. The day after he completely ignored her and he evaded her at all costs. She had been trying to talk to him for hours but he ran way before she could talk. But when the classes were over she saw him walking towards his car.

“Klaus!” Caroline ran after him before he could escape again.

The dirty blonde haired guy turned around rolling his eyes. “What do you want Caroline?” He curtly replied.

Caroline’s eyes winded at his angry voice. “What’s the matter with you? You’ve been ignoring me all day long! Have I done something wrong?”

“Caroline love, I’m busy right now. We’ll talk tomorrow.” He tried to leave her all by herself but she grabbed him by his arm.

“Why are you treating me this way?”

“God Caroline you are so suffocating. Just leave me alone. It’s over.” Klaus said without any emotion.

“Are you breaking up with me?” The blonde haired cheerleader asked.

“Yes, Caroline. Look sweetheart, it was fun while it lasted but I already got what I wanted.” The dirty blonde haired Mikaelson smirked.

“You only wanted to make love to me?” Caroline’s eyes started to water.

“Make love to you? Caroline this isn’t some 80s cheap romance. I only wanted to fuck you. Come on now don’t start to cry. See this is why you bore me so much you spend the whole fucking day crying.” Klaus angrily spat tired of his now ex girlfriend constant drama.

“You are a p-pig.” The blonde girl managed say between her cries.

“I’ve been called worse, love. I just don’t get how you bought all that ‘I will always be by your side’. The thing is I’ve never loved you. You are a weak, stupid girl. The only reason I was with you was that Damon and I made a bet. Do you want to know what the bet was about? He dared me to seduce you and have sex with you. Which I already did both of those things. Now you are just completely and utterly useless to me.” Klaus smirked at her hurt expression.

“Everything you said everything you promised was all a lie… You lying bastard!” Caroline screamed at him.

Hearing Caroline’s screams her best friends Katherine, Elena and Bonnie ran to her side. Most of the students were watching them as if they were in a theatre, some of the students started to film their fight.

“Care. You okay?” Bonnie asked.

“Bon-Bon does she look okay to you?” Katherine sarcastically replied.

“Care, let’s go. We’ll take you home.” Elena kindly said.

What absolutely no one expected was that Caroline slapped Klaus across the face as hard as she could. She even scratched his handsome face with her nails when she slapped him. Katherine and Elena were shocked to see their best friend acting like this.

Something truly fucked up he must had done to make her react that way. Katherine thought, she always disliked Klaus Caroline was far too good for a guy like him.

“I hate you.” Caroline spat at him, running towards her car to go home.

She left him alone with everyone staring at him. Tired of the unwanted attention he screamed to everyone scaring them off. Then he just went back to his home acting as if nothing happened.

The cheerleader ignored Klaus for the next month, acting as if he never existed. Sometimes he stared at her but he didn’t dare to talk to her. However, she’s been feeling sick lately. Firstly she thought it was the flu but after a month she was still sick. Katherine suggested her to take a pregnancy test and unfortunately for her, it was positive.

Caroline was terrified only Kat and Hayley knew she was pregnant but eventually her mother would have to know. She just needed to talk to Klaus about this whole situation.   

After the lunch break, she saw him in the corridor. She shyly tapped his arm making him turn to look at her.

“We need to talk…” Caroline whispered.

“Why would I want to talk to you, love? Unless… you’re feeling lonely.” He smirked at her.

“Gross… Just please this is important. Come to my house at 6:00pm my mom is working so we’ll be alone.” The blonde girl didn’t looked at him.

“I’ll see you later love.” He said leaving her all by herself again.

Later that evening he was almost an hour late. But he went to her house. He knocked on the door, his gorgeous ex girlfriend opened the door. He could see how nervous she was, scared even.

“So, what is it love? You’ve been crying again? Stop being so weak Caroline.”  Klaus said when he saw her eyes were red.

“Shut up, Klaus. Sit down there’s something yo-you need to know.” She said.

“Very well love. Please do tell me the reason why you wanted me here.” Klaus replied curious to see what she wanted.

“Remember when we made lo- we had sex.”

“How could I forget? You are very elastic love. Want to repeat?” He seductively asked invading her personal space.

“I’m preg- pregnant.” She whispered so lowly Klaus almost didn’t hear her.

“You what?” The shocked teen asked.

“I’m pregnant… I’ve been sick for almost two months and Kat said I should take a pregnancy test, it came out positive. I wasn’t completely sure because it could be a false positive, but then last week Dr. Fell confirmed it. I-I’m five weeks pregnant.” She explained him.

“Caroline love stop joking. You know I hate jokes.” Klaus muttered.

“I am not joking I’m pregnant and you are the father.” Caroline said.

Klaus sat on the couch with his hands covering his face. He tried to steady his breathing but it was impossible. He was furious. He had a nice future full of success and fame. He had his whole life planned. Once he graduates from high school, he will go to Yale and then he will prove to Mikael how wrong he was about him. He was going to make him pay for everything he’s done to him.

However, if Caroline told to anyone who was the father of that kid. His brother Elijah and his mother would make him take the responsibility for his actions. And if he raises that kid he won’t be able to focus on his future. Therefore, Mikael would win once again. That’s not going to happen, not again…

Besides that child would be better without a father like him. He darky thought.

“Please Klaus say something.” Caroline’s soft voice whispered to him.  

“I want nothing to do with it. Besides, how do I know if it’s mine?” He amusedly replied.

“You knew I was a virgin! You are the only man I’ve ever... done it.” Caroline angrily spat.

“Very well… Let’s say I believe you. What do you want?” He questioned her.

“I-I we-well I would just want your support and be there for our child.” The sixteen year old was shaking.

“You want that thing to be born? Why? It’s only going to ruin our lives. Just get rid of it.” The dirty blonde haired man couldn’t look at her shocked expression full of pain.

Caroline tried to talk but no words came out it was as if she could not speak. She sat down on her loveseat across from Klaus and she started to cry.

“Caroline love. I’ll pay for everything. You abort that thing and our lives can be the same again.” Klaus said softly.

“Don’t call our child It. Look Nik I know you are scared of becoming like you-“Before she could finish he interrupted her.

“Bloody hell. It’s nothing but a bunch of cells. I don’t want it! Abort it, kill it. I don’t want nothing that’s going to link me to you until the day I die.”

“I will not kill an innocent baby, just because you hate me. You used me, manipulated me and now you want me to kill an innocent baby. Our baby.” The cheerleader screamed with all her anger.

“Stop calling it our baby. It’s not ours. IT means nothing to me. Caroline love you are just sixteen I just turned eighteen. We can’t raise a child. I have to go to Yale and you have to finish high school. Caroline it will ruin us.” Klaus tried to convince her.

“lf we work together Klaus we can still do all we wanted to do. Please, don’t do this. Don’t act like Mikael.” The blonde girl pleaded.

“Caroline you are bulimic. You can’t even eat whole meal without vomiting it. How the hell you will raise a child here in Mystic Falls while I’m in collage?” Klaus sarcastically laughed.

“We could work it out. Nik, please I’m terrified. Don’t leave me.” Caroline stood up and walked towards him wrapping her small arms around him.

 He closed his eyes and returned the hug. He kissed her head inhaling her scent one last time. “You will abort it, you won’t tell anyone from my family you’re pregnant. I want it dead.”

She immediately broke the hug. Feeling furious at him. “You are a coward. How could you want your own baby to die?”

“BECAUSE YOU ARE NOTHING TO ME CAROLINE!” He screamed will all his fury for the first time scaring Caroline.

“I think it’s time for you to leave Klaus.” A voice behind them interrupted the teenagers.

“Mom?” The teen girl was surprised to see her mother.

“You don’t have to worry Caroline won’t get in your way. You have my word.” Liz Forbes said to Klaus.

“Thank god.” He muttered relieved.

“Now get lost before I shot you. Coward.” The eldest woman threated the teen boy who immediately left.

“Is there anything else you’ve been hiding me Caroline?” Liz asked.

Present time:

“Mom? Mommy? Mama?” Lizzie tried to get her mother’s attention.

“What is happening to mom?” Hope asked.

“Nothing is happening to your mother. She is just exhausted.” Their aunt Hayley replied.

“Sorry girls. My mind was elsewhere.” Caroline nervously smiled at them.

Lizzie gave her a suspicious look not completely believing her mother’s reply, the youngest blonde wrapped her small arms around her neck with her head resting in her mother’s chest. Care pulled her youngest daughter to her.

“So, can we go tomorrow mom?” Hope asked.

“No.” Her mother replied.

“What? Mom please! Lizzie help me!” Hope said but noticed her twin was already falling asleep in their mother’s arms.

“I forbid you, both of you. I don’t want you to go, understood?” Caroline sternly said.

“Why mom? Aunt Hayley, grandma give me a little help please!” The dirty blonde haired child begged.

“Sorry little wolf, your mom is the one who makes the rules here.” Hayley smiled.

“Because I am your mom. I don’t have to explain myself to you Hope.”

“That’s not fair! I always explain myself to you mom.” Hope made the three eldest women in the room laugh, which only made her angrier.

“You have to explain myself to me because I am your mother.” Caroline sweetly explained kissing Lizzie’s forehead.

“Tomorrow, we can go to the grill to see Uncle Matt, how does that sound?” Hayley asked.

“Boring. I want to go to the art exhibition.” Hope crossed her arms angrily.

“Well sadly for you, you won’t go.” Her grandmother Liz replied.

“Lizzie wake up! She says she is not tired and look ten minutes later she fell asleep.” Hope rolled her eyes annoyed.

“You’ve slept though out the whole ride but Lizzie was awake. I am actually surprised she lasted this long without falling asleep.” The brunette smirked at her niece’s angry expression.

“It’s almost midnight. It’s time to sleep Hope.” Caroline stood up holding Lizzie in her arms walking towards their bedroom.

“Please mommy. Let me go tomorrow.” The little girl begged once again.

“I said no Hope. Tomorrow you’ll go with aunt Hayley to see your uncle Matt and then we’ll do the Christmas shopping.” Caroline tried to distract her to make her stop begging.

“We will put up the tree and the decorations tomorrow! Yeah!” Hope started to jump excited.

“But now you have to sleep or you’ll be tired for tomorrow.” Her mother laughed at her enthusiasm.

“Okay, mom. But I am still angry.” Her eldest daughter sassily said.

Hope opened the door from her bedroom while Caroline was holding a sleeping Lizzie in her arms. The eldest twin jumped to her king sized bed while her mother tugged her twin sister in. Lizzie was peacefully sleeping while Hope was staring at the celling because she wasn’t tired enough.

“Mommy tug me in.” The blue eyed girl smiled at her showing her cute dimples.

“Of course my baby.”

Caroline went to her side tugging her in and giving her a soft kiss in her cheek. Hope hugged her mother’s neck giving her a kiss in her mother’s blonde hair.

“Now it’s time to sleep my little princess.” Caroline whispered.

“I am the little wolf, Lizzie is the little princess.”

“Both of you are my little princesses.” The woman smiled.

“I love you, mommy.” The eleven year old yawned.

“And I love both of you more than anything in this world. Goodnight Hope.” Caroline stood up walking towards the door turning off the lights of the bedroom.

“Night Mommy.” Hope whispered closing her eyes.

When Caroline left the room, Hope grabbed her tablet and played some games. Waiting for her mom aunt and grandma to fall asleep. One hour later, everyone was sleeping. When she stopped hearing noises, she tried to wake her twin up.

“Lizzie wake up.” Hope whispered shaking her sister.

“hmmm… Stop.” Lizzie muttered covering her head with the blankets.

“Lizzie, Lizzie!” Hope whispered her sister’s name until she turned around.

“What? What!” Lizzie yelled whispering. She pulled off the blankets facing her twin.

“We have to go tomorrow to the art exhibition. Kla- Klaus is a super famous artist Lizzie! He travels around the world but now he is in the same town as us.” Hope explained to her sister who didn’t look very interested.

“Look Hope I love you. I would do anything to make you happy. But if we go and mom finds out we will be grounded and being grounded in Christmas means no gifts and I asked for lots of gifts this year.” The blonde girl whispered.

“You’re absolutely right, mom would be furious if she finds out. That’s why she won’t find out. Remember what aunt Kat always tells us.” Hope tried to convince her sister.

“Shoes are a girls best friends? Especially the limited edition ones.”

“No, not that Lizzie.”

“Don’t ever trust men, even less if his name is Damon.”

“No, not that either.”

“Be successful and use man like toys. Until you find the right man just use the rest of them to buy you more shoes.”

“For goodness sake Lizzie. NO.” Hope yelled frustrated.

“It’s three in the morning you woke me up. I’m tired. Just let me sleep.” Lizzie yelled back.

“Please, please Lizzie it’s my dream to meet him.” The eldest twin gave her a sad look.

“Fine. We can sneak out tomorrow when we are with auntie Hayley. We both know that mom would find out if we tried to sneak out while she is with us. She always knows everything it’s like as if she had telepathy.” Lizzie replied.

“Thank you!” Hope jumped wrapping her arms around her twin.

“If mom catch us we will be grounded forever.” Lizzie whispered once her sister let her go.

“I will take full responsibility if mom catches us. Remember what aunt Kat always say ‘Girls will always win in the end’” Hope whispered.

“I won’t let mom ground you, if we go down we will go down together like sisters. Always together.” Lizzie pressed a kiss in her fingers and Hope did the same before interlacing their fingers.

“Just like auntie Hayley taught us. I hope Niklaus Mikaelson is worth it. Night Hope.” Lizzie closed her eyes trying to sleep.

“Night Lizzie.” She closed her eyes waiting for tomorrow.

Chapter two:

The Forbes Residence, Mystic Falls:

“Lizzie! Lizzie wake up!” Hope started to shake her twin sister to wake her up.

Today was the day. She was going to go to the art exhibition with her twin sister and no one would stop them, not even their mother.

“You are suffocating me Hope. I’m still tired wake me up later.” The youngest twin murmured covering herself with the warm blankets.

“You annoy me too, Lizzie. Now stop acting like a baby and wake up! Come on!” Hope pulled the blankets towards her uncovering Lizzie completely.

“Mom says I am her baby so I don’t have to wake up. Leave me alone!” Lizzie replied tired of her sister’s behaviour.

“Very well, I didn’t wanted to do this but…” Hope moved beside her sister and grabbed Lizzie’s teddy bear Mr. Cuddles.

“If you want him back come and get it!” Hope stuck her tongue out running away from their room.

“HEY! Come back with Mr. Cuddles! Don’t you see how cold it is outside? He could get sick!” The blonde haired twin yelled running after Hope.

Hope ran towards the kitchen where her mom and her auntie Hayley were making breakfast while her grandmother was reading the newspaper.

“Hope don’t run inside the house!” Caroline scolded her daughter.

“Mom, save me from Lizzie.” The honey haired child hid behind her mother.

“What have you done to Lizzie, little wolf?” Hayley asked.

“I just wanted her to wake up…” Hope confessed.

“You took Mr. Cuddles from your sister. She must be ups-“ The brunette was interrupted before she could finish.

“HOPE ANDREA FORBES! Give me Mr. Cuddles back or you’ll see!” Lizzie threated her sister.

“Oh really? What are you going to do?” The eldest twin mocked her little sister.

“I hid Mr. Wolfy in the house. I’m the only one who knows where he is. Give me Mr. Cuddles back or I will never ever give you Mr. Wolfy back.” Lizzie mischievously smirked at her sister’s shocked expression.

“Give me Mr. Wolfy! You know he doesn’t like dark places.” Hope walked towards her sister.

“And Mr. Cuddles is mine! You took it from me!” Lizzie pushed Hope.

“Did you just push me?” Hope screamed at her sister, pushing her just the same way Lizzie did moments ago.

“Don’t push me Hope! You have no right to do that!” Lizzie screamed back.

“WHAT? So you can push me but I can’t! How is that fair?” Hope angrily spat.

“You STOLE MR. CUDDLES! Give me my bear back!” Lizzie pulled Mr. Cuddles by right arm while Hope pulled his left arm.

“Not until you give me Mr. Wolfy!” Hope pulled by the teddy bear’s head and arm at the same time.

“Let Mr. Cuddles go, NOW! I swear I will burn Mr. Wolfy.” The blonde child threated her sister once again.

“Enough girls.” Caroline authoritatively said.

Unfortunately, for her neither of her daughters listened to her and they kept pulling the teddy bear until they broke it. Both of them fell to the floor for the force they used to grab the teddy. Hope realized what she had done she was about to apologize but Lizzie launched at her pulling her hair roughly.

“YOU KILLED HIM! I WILL BURN MR. WOLFY IN FRONT OF YOU!” Lizzie screamed attacking her sister.

“Mommy! Save me! Lizzie stop it. I’m sorry I didn’t meant it!” Hope apologized to her sister who had tears in her face.

“I hate you! I HATE YOU!” The young twin shouted with all her anger.

“Don’t say things you don’t mean!” Hope whispered almost ready to cry.

“I SAID ENOUGH.” Caroline yelled scaring everyone in the room.

“Let her go Lizzie.” Her mother ordered.

“She killed Mr. Cuddles she deserves this!” Her daughter replied back.

“Lizzie, I won’t ask you again.” Her mother said.

“You always choose her side! I don’t want to talk to you! I don’t want to talk to any of you! Specially you filthy traitor.” Lizzie screamed at all of them running away from the kitchen.

“Seriously, everything was so calm ten minutes ago.” Caroline muttered going after Lizzie while Hayley was with Hope.

“Why did you took Mr. Cuddles Hope?” Hayley helped her niece to stand up again, the young girl wrapped her arms around her aunt’s neck.

“I only wanted her to wake up, I didn’t meant it! Now she hates me.” The eldest twin started to cry.

“You know how Lizzie is, she has very little temper. But she will never hate you. Don’t cry little wolf.” Her aunt rubbed her back comforting her.

“I am so sorry I just wanted to wake her up, that’s all I wanted.” Hope cried harder.

“It’s alright Hope we can sew Mr. Cuddles again.” The hazel-eyed beauty replied.

“Can we do that?” Hope’s eyes winded in shock.

“Yes of course we can. We sew his arms and head and Mr. Cuddles will be like new.” Hayley said.

“Thank you!” Hope smiled through her tears.

“Now stay here with grandma while I get your clothes. Then you come to my room and you get dressed.” Her aunt sweetly replied.

“Okay. Auntie Hayley I want to dress nice today. I want to look cute. Okay?” Hope told her aunt.

“Oh really? Why?” Hayley raised her eyebrow.

“I want to look cute if we are going to see uncle Matty Blue.” Hope half lied. She did wanted to look cute for her uncle Matt but her real reason was that she wanted to cause a good impression at the art exhibition.

“You look cute in everything.” Her grandmother said.

“I’ll get you the cutest clothes you have.” Hayley said leaving the room.

Caroline had been looking for Lizzie for the last five minutes. She wasn’t in her bedroom, she wasn’t in the bathroom, she wasn’t anywhere to be found. Caroline didn’t like this, knowing Lizzie she could have left the house by now. However, she checked the outside doors and both of them were closed. Which meant her daughter was still in the house.

“Lizzie? Where are you?” Caroline asked.

“Away from you! Leave me alone. I’m angry.” Lizzie said.

Caroline followed the sound her daughter’s soft voice. She turned around and walked towards the wardrobe. When she opened the doors of the closet, she found her daughter sitting on the floor staring at her angrily. Caroline sat on the floor next to Lizzie.

“Leave. I want to be alone.” The youngest blonde whispered.

“I am not going anywhere until we have a little chat.” Caroline smiled at her daughter.

“If you want to ground me because I pulled Hope’s hair, I just want you to know that I don’t care.” Lizzie proudly replied.

“I am not ground you for pulling your sister’s hair, for the way you speak to me your mom on the other hand…”Care said.

“How are you going to ground me, anyway? It’s not like I care if you don’t let me go outside, it’s too cold. And since I have no friends you can’t forbid me to see them.” Lizzie stared at her mother.

Caroline felt horrible when her daughter said things like that. She always had so many friends when she was a child and she wanted her daughters to have friends just like she did. Hope had many friends and she loved school but Lizzie on the other hand…

Lizzie is a very special child, since she was very young she could already talk while Hope could only make adorable baby noises and say some words. At first Hayley and Caroline thought she was a very smart little baby, but as she grew up it was much more than just that. At the age of four, her youngest daughter was already reading books while teaching her oldest twin the numbers and colours. When Caroline saw the potential her daughter had she took her to multiple doctors. They tested Lizzie multiple times and told her she was a gifted child. Which it was why she had such an awful behaviour in school. Due to all of that, she had a lot of trouble fitting in. She thought all the kids in her class were stupid and she wasn’t afraid of telling them that which lead to her getting spelled within her first week of school.

“You do have friends, Lizzie.” Caroline sweetly said hugging her.

“Hope is my only friend around my age, mommy. We both know that’s true.” Lizzie hugged her back, still upset though.

“Maybe your sister is your only friend who is eleven but Davina loves you, let’s not forget about Josh and Aiden. Uncle Stefan and uncle Matt are also your friends. See? You have lots of friends.” Caroline tickled her daughter making her laugh.

“Mom stop it!” The young girl laughed.

“That’s what I was looking for! A beautiful baby with the most beautiful smile ever.” Her mother smiled caressing her hair.

“Mommy. Can I ask you something?” Lizzie asked.

“Of course you can baby. But if are going to ask me about that art exhibition you already know the answer.”

“Seriously? I couldn’t care any less about that art exhibition it was Hope the one who wanted to go. It was important for her which is why I was going to go with her but since she betrayed me, I won’t.” The child stubbornly said.

“You know she didn’t want to hurt Mr. Cuddles, she didn’t killed him because we still can sew him.” Caroline assured her.

“I know. But the damage is already done… Mommy, do you love Hope more than me because she is normal and I’m not?”

“What kind of question is that? Of course not. I would never ever love her more than I love you nor the other way around. Both of you are my precious babies I love you two more than anything and anyone in this world. Stop implying you are not normal. Elizabeth you are perfect the way you are. Understood?”

“Yup, it’s just... Sometimes I get scared.” The youngest blue eyed girl stared at the floor.

“Scared of what?” Caroline asked.

“I don’t think I should tell you. You would feel sad and I don’t like when you’re sad.” Lizzie whispered.

“I’ll be sadder if you don’t tell me.”

The young child let out a sigh. “I don’t want you to abandon me like my dad did. We know he never loved us. You act as if he never existed and no one in the house talks about him. Unlike Hope, I don’t have stupid fantasies to have a dad. Because having a daddy would mean sharing you with someone else and that’s not going to happen. You are mine and only mine. Well you’re Hope’s too but that’s it. I won’t share you with anybody else just Hope, auntie Hayley, auntie Kat, grams and uncle Stefan.”

In moments like this Caroline didn’t know how to deal with her youngest child. She would love to tell her daughter her father loved her just as much as she did but that would be a lie. And she wasn’t going to lie to them. All Caroline ever wanted was to have a normal family.

Her family was a dysfunctional one. Bill always blamed her the fact he couldn’t be happy because of her which lead to lots of arguments between her mother and Bill, when he finally divorced her mother she was 12 years old. Her mother started to work more hours so she could sustain the household, she practically had to raise herself. She had to cook and clean the house because her mother came home exhausted and she wanted to help her. The only family member who listened to her and took care of her as much as she could was in college in New Orleans. It was back then she decided she was going to get married before having children. She was going to give her children the live she never had, a loving home. Fate had other plans though.

When she found out she was pregnant she really thought Niklaus would step up to the place. Both of them had dysfunctional families and she thought he might want something better for their children. But she was wrong. He was just a self-absorbed bastard who only cares about himself.

They were better without him anyways. Caroline thought.

“Mom? Mama? Mommy? Again! Seriously.” Lizzie started to shake her mother.

Caroline opened her eyes once again. “Sorry I zoomed out.”

“Yeah, I see that. I knew if I told you, you were going to be sad.” Lizzie pouted.

“Oh no, baby. I’m not sad. But I wish you could have the most loving father in the world. However sometimes things are complicated.” The eldest blonde smiled sadly at her daughter who smiled back.

“I don’t need him. It’s been eleven years and you did a very good job without him.” Lizzie tried to cheer her mother up.

Caroline let out a small laugh. “Do you really think so?”

“No… I know so. You were just seventeen when Hope and I were born. Hope doesn’t know but I know you had bad eating habits. But you overcome them just for our wellbeing. You got a job while you were still in high school and still had time for us! You studied online for years just so you could be with us as much as you could. Last year you finally got your PhD in business management, I helped you with algebra and geometry because you were quite bad until I taught you. You even opened your own business at just twenty-six years old and you have many clients. And I know sometimes you are very tired when you come home but you always come with a smile on your face. What I am trying to say is that it feels me up with pride to have you as my mommy. I am proud of you.” The eleven year old sweetly but wisely said.

Lizzie’s smile banished when she saw her mom was crying. Her mother had her hands against her face covering her completely. She didn’t understood, she told her a nice thing she should be smiling not crying. Her aunt Kat sometimes she could be a little bit insensitive and she shouldn’t tell people things that could make them angry, like how stupid they were compared to her, unless that person is Damon Salvatore. Then she could be as honest as she wanted. But now she only said good things but her mom was crying. It didn’t make any sense.

“Mommy, why are you crying? I only said good things! It should cheer you up. Not make you sad.” Lizzie said not understanding why her mom was sad.

Caroline dried her tears and pulled her against her chest. Hugging her and kissing her adorable blonde hair on the top of her head. The young girl returned the hug giving her mom a kiss on her cheek.

“You did more than just cheer me up. I love you so much.” Caroline whispered.

“And I love you too! Lots! That’s why I got expelled from my fist school!” The blonde girl mischievously said.

“I know. I remember with only four years old your very first day of school. You broke an eight year old boy’s nose. You hit him you’re your advanced mathematics book. How did you managed to sneak the book in your schoolbag anyway? I checked twice before leaving our house.” Caroline asked. Her youngest daughter could be very hard to control when she got upset.

“When you left us in that stupid school. That idiot Daniel said that you were hot, I don’t like when people talks like that about women, even less if it’s my mama. So I said to him to stop saying things like that and he laughed at me and pushed Hope on the floor. He made her cry, he even said ‘what are you gonna do about it?’. So I grabbed my book and I hit him as hard as I could. It was fun, he cried like the stupid baby he was. I won’t let anyone disrespect you or anyone I love. No, not on my watch.” Lizzie smirked proud of what she did.

“I know you had your reasons but hitting people is wrong, even if they’re bad.” Caroline scolded.

“Well the important thing I wanted to tell you is that if my dad ever comes back I will still love you more. Also I will be mean to him because he hurt you. You, Hope, and I are a team. And no one will disturb my team. Also my aunts and uncle Stef are on our team.” The young girl assured her mother.

“If he ever comes back I don’t want you to be mean to him. Whatever he did is between him and me. Okay?” Caroline tried to shield her daughter from what happened between them. Deep down she knew Hope might forgive him, she is always been a sweet forgiving person but Lizzie isn’t.

But it’s not like they will ever meet him. As long as they don’t go the art exhibition he will leave her alone. Caroline thought.

“Okay. Mom why do I look like as if I was a seven year old? I’m eleven! I am literally using clothes for a seven year old. Everyone thinks Hope is at least one year older just because she is an inch taller. She is only seven minutes older! It’s so upsetting.” The child changed the subject innocently.

“Well, you were a very small little baby. Hope was the bigger one. But it doesn’t matter you’ll grow up. Just wait a few years. Besides you turned eleven last week.” Caroline smiled standing up.

“Now, it’s time for you to get dressed. Stefan, your grandma and I will go to pick up the Christmas tree. Then in the evening we will decorate the tree and we’ll go to the mall to get more decorations if we need them.”

Lizzie’s eyes widened smiling happy to hear that. Hope and her both loved to decorate the Christmas tree and the house it was the best part aside from the Christmas gifts of course.

“Mommy I need to look cute if I am going to see uncle Matt. He has to see how tall and beautiful I am.” Lizzie shyly said.

“Let’s go to choose the cutest clothes you have then.” Caroline and Lizzie walked hand in hand to the twins bedroom.

Twenty minutes later everyone was in the living room. Hayley dressed Hope with an adorable warm wolf hoodie, a black pair of winter leggings and grey converse shoes. Hope also had a grey bow on the top her head. Caroline dressed Lizzie in a pale yellow bear themed hoodie, a pale yellow pair of winter leggings and brown boots. Lizzie was wearing a cute brown headband.

“I look like a Disney character mom. I am so beautiful.” Lizzie said staring at herself in the mirror.

“I look prettier.” Hope smiled.

“No, you don’t. Just so you know I’m still angry.” The youngest girl rolled her eyes.

“Forgive me, Lizzie. Aunt Hayley said she can sew Mr. Cuddles. Everything will be fine.” The honey haired girl said.

“Ugh, fine I will forgive you this time. But you won’t ever hurt him again or else I’ll be angry.”

“I told you it was an accident! It will not happen again.”

“Who are those two little cuties?” Stefan said entering the house from the unlocked backdoor to surprise them. He send a text to Liz so she opened the backdoor for him.

“Uncle Stefan!” Both the twins yelled jumping into his arms hugging him.

“Sorry, I couldn’t come sooner I had an important case yesterday. Right now I’m all yours until the next year.” Stefan laughed when the twins started to give him sweet kisses in each side of his cheeks.

“You put the bad guys in jail?!” Hope asked.

“Did you win the case?” Lizzie asked.

“I am a lawyer little wolf I don’t put people in jail. That’s your grandma’s job.”

“Grandma is awesome! She can shoot people! Grandma have you ever shoot someone?” Lizzie asked.

“Only the bad guys.” Liz smiled.

“See you girls later. Let’s go to pic the most epic Christmas tree for the most epic girls ever.” Stefan kissed each one of the twins in their foreheads.

“Girls be good for aunt Hayley. Alright?” Caroline kneeled so she could be at her daughters level.

“Yeah, mom. We’re always good.” Hope smiled hugging her.

“I’m almost always good.” Lizzie said hugging her too.

“You are occasionally good. Last time I took you to a girls scout reunion you made a girl cry. That wasn’t even a day ago.” Hayley smirked.

“She said that my mom was stupid cause she had me when she was young. And I just told her what I thought about her. Kindly. It’s not my fault she is a crying baby.” Lizzie defended herself.

“Lizzie, you said her mother was a slut. Then you hit her with your advanced algebra book. And you started to insult her in Bulgarian.” Hope said.

“Yes. Yes I did.” Lizzie proudly smirked.

“You did what? Hayley how could you not told me about this? Since when is Katherine teaching you Bulgarian?” Caroline said shocked.

“It was nothing to worry about she apologized. And they didn’t expelled her.” Hayley winked at Lizzie who did the same.

“Care, if you want a nice tree we have to go.” Stefan said.

“Ugh, fine. Once I come back, you and I will have a long talk about it. Understood?” Caroline pointed her finger at Lizzie.

“Kay. See you later mommy.” Lizzie kissed her cheek once again smiling showing her cute dimples trying to act cute so her mother wouldn’t ground her.

“You are so cute thinking I won’t ground you just because you use your cute smile. You are going to be grounded. Be good for mommy, bye my babies.” Caroline hugged them one last time leaving the house with Stefan and Liz.

“Let’s go to the Grill to see uncle Matt. Put your coats on girls.” Hayley ordered.

“Yeah auntie Hayley.” The twins exclaimed at the same time walking hand in hand.

The Grill:

Kol and Rebekah went to the Grill so they could take a break from their mad family. Finn and Sage didn’t stop talking about her pregnancy which made Rebekah sick. Elijah disappeared since last night, Nik was making sure his art exhibition was perfect, his annoying fiancée tried to be kind to her as if she wanted her to be her friend. Which let’s face it, it won’t ever happen. And their mother already trapped Freya. They were going to throw a party the day after Nik’s exhibition.

God both of them needed a good break from those people.

“Oh god, look sister this is destiny we come to the grill and look at that hot girl.” Kol smirked at the brunette who ignored him.

“You mean the one with two children? Aren’t you a desperate fool? She’s probably married anyway.” Bekah replied.

“You think I’m an amateur when it comes to woman Bekah? Look at her she isn’t wearing a wedding ring. She’s probably a single mom who needs some relief after raising a nine year old and a seven year old. And there’s when Kol enters in action.” Kol explained to his little sister who made a gagging sound.

“You are disgusting. I think they are Matt’s nieces”

“What makes you think that?” Kol asked.

“They literally said uncle Matt and ran towards him.” Bekah explained.

Suddenly Bekah’s phone started to ring. She grabbed her phone to see who it was. But when she saw who it was she rolled her eyes and ignored the call.

“Please do tell who it was.” Kol amusedly smiled.

“Camille. Once again. God I hate her. All she does is talk about how much Nik matured to be this amazing man he is now, how much she adores this family, she tries to be my friend. God that insufferable bitch.” The blonde woman told him.

“She is annoying indeed. But let’s be honest three years ago Niklaus was getting high as a kite and having sex with a different women every single day. He is not a changed man, he still the same asshole he’s always been, always thinking he is better than any of us.” Kol smirked watching the brunette woman going to the bathroom.

“He is my favourite brother.” Bekah said.

“Ouch, you break my heart. Maybe I should tell Camille you’re here so you two can talk about how awesome Nik is.” Kol laughed at her sister’s angry face.

“Don’t be a bloody bastard. Now I finally got rid of her. Nik always had a very bad taste when it comes to women.” The youngest Mikaelson replied.

“That’s true. Tatia cheated on him with Elijah, then I don’t even know what happened with that tasty little thing Caroline he never told us, I think she traumatized him. After her it was when he started doing drugs and having sex with everything that moves. And then comes this woman who is his biggest fan. It’s just creepy. Let’s stop talking about Niklaus. Watch and learn little sister.” Kol winked at his sister.

“What are you doin-“

“Little girls! Come here for a moment.” Kol said to the little girls who were whispering to each other and staring at him suspiciously.

“Oh bloody hell really? Now you’ll use two little girls.” Bekah rolled her eyes at her brother’s antics.

“Shut up, Bekah.” Kol said.

“Lizzie we shouldn’t go. He is weird.” Hope whispered.

“Uncle Matt is here, it’s alright! Besides we can have fun. I think he wants to use us so he can be auntie Hayley’s boyfriend.” Lizzie whispered.

“Boyfriend? Aunt Hayley doesn’t like men.” Hope whispered once again.

“But he doesn’t know that.” Lizzie smiled mischievously.

“This is going to be fun.” Hope smirked mischievously too.

The twins walked hand in hand towards the Mikaelson siblings.

“Can we help you with something sir?” Lizzie politely asked.

“You two seem so polite. Nice to meet you my name is Kol and this is my sister Rebekah.” Kol kindly said.

“Very nice to meet you guys, My name is Hope Andrea Forbes and this is my little sister Elizabeth Katherine Forbes.” Hope politely presented herself and her sister.

Hearing the surname didn’t ring any bells to Kol but Bekah spit up her drink, shocked.

“Forbes? As in Caroline Forbes?” Bekah asked.

“Yeah, she is our mom. Do you know her?” Lizzie asked.

“We… We went to the same high school. So how old are you girls?” Bekah tried to get more information about them, there was something very familiar in those two little girls.

“We turned eleven last week. Why?” Hope asked.

“I was just curious.” Bekah smiled becoming a little pale.

“You sure you are alright Rebekah? You look pale. I can ask my uncle to give you some food or water.” Lizzie offered.

“I-I’m fine sweetheart.” Bekah smiled.

“If you feel sick don’t be afraid to ask for anything.” Hope said.

“She’s fine girls. So you are Caroline’s Forbes twins. If Caroline is your mom who is that woman then?” Kol asked.

“Our aunt Hayley.”

“Is she single?” The twins smirked at the same time showing their cutes dimples.

“Yes! Do you want us to help you to make her fall in love with you?” Lizzie gave her most adorable smirk.

“You girls are the best. Go on sweetheart.”

“She loves to eat meat, haunting animals. She enjoys killing animals she hates vegan people. She loves handsome men. She likes the impulsive ones, she once told me her ideal man would walk into a bar and kiss her right away. Without talking, just kiss her.” Lizzie smiled.

“A strong woman I love her already. Girls you can get another smoothie.” Kol smiled seeing Hayley coming out from the bathroom.

“Good luck Kol!” Hope smirked.

“Thanks girls. See Bekah, this kids are cute.” Kol winked at them walking towards Hayley.

“Bekah I think you want to film this.” Lizzie laughed.

“Everything you said it was a lie, wasn’t it?” Bekah smirked at them.

“Come on, can you honestly believe we were going to tell him everything about our aunt? He only wants to sleep in the same bed and the next day he will leave her. That’s not a nice way to treat a lady.” Hope explained.

“I think I just feel in love with you girls.” Bekah laughed taking her phone out and recording her brother.

“Let the show begin.” Lizzie laughed.

Kol walked towards Hayley and he immediately tried to kiss her but before he could kiss her, she hit him across the face. Kol was shocked but thought she was just shy because her nieces were there. He stood up again.

“I know you’re shy, love. I could take you to the forest and maybe we could go haunting. I know how much you love to kill animals and so do l.” Kol lied at the last part but the girl was far too hot.

“You SICK DISGUSTING FREAK!” Hayley slapped him once again.

“Killing animals? Trying to kiss me without even knowing me! You are a man! God stay away from me.” Hayley kicked him in the balls.

“You two little lying devils!” Kol accused the twins who were laughing at him.

“God that was hilarious. High five girls!” Bekah dried her tears from her eyes.

Both girls gave her a high five. And they ordered another smoothie like Kol promised. Hayley went towards them.

“Girls did that freak hurt you or something?” Hayley worriedly asked.

“Nope. Kol is cool.” Hope replied.

“It was so fun.” Lizzie smirked at Kol.

“I will get my revenge, little devils.” Kol joked standing up.

“Just so you know, our aunt Kat is half Bulgarian and she teaches us martial arts. We also go to karate.” Hope proudly replied.

“I don’t think you should mess with such a badass kids.” Bekah joked.

“Girls, I’m going to call aunt Kat and we’ll go with uncle Matt to see Lexi.” Hayley said trying to keep away Kol from her nieces.

“We are going to see baby Vicky?” Lizzie happily said.

“Yup. Vicky grew up a lot. Now she can crawl.” Matt proudly said. Vicky was his first child.

“Auntie Hayley could we go to the bathroom first?” The blue eyed girl asked.

“Yeah. Of course, I’ll wait here.” Hayley smiled.

“Bekah our lovely Camille is stalking my phone with loads of messages. We should go.” The brown haired man ignored all the messages.

“I rather drink bleach than spending a whole day with her.” Bekah muttered leaving the Grill with her brother.

Hope and Lizzie walked towards the backdoor running away from the Grill. Once they were outside, they went walking hand in hand until they reached their destination the art exhibition.

“Look how much I love you. I’ll be grounded forever for this.” Lizzie whispered to Hope.

“I just can’t believe we are going to be in the same room as Klaus Mikaelson. I’m so excited.” Hope smiled entering the old themed gallery.

“I just don’t get why you are so happy. He is only a man who paints sad snowflakes.” The blonde haired girl complained staring at the snowflake painting.

“Is really my work really that literal?” A voice behind them said.

Both of them turned around and saw Niklaus Mikaelson right in front of them. He was wearing a very expensive suit and a woman in a navy blue dress was beside him. He looked rather cocky.

“Yes, it is.” Lizzie smirked at him.

“Lizzie! What she is trying to say it’s that you are super talented.” Hope stared at her sister angrily. If she ashamed her right in front of her idol she will be pissed.

“Ouch, your words wound me. Where are your parents?” Klaus asked.

“I said what I wanted to say otherwise I wouldn’t have say it.” The blonde haired girl stubbornly said.

“Our mom is buying the Christmas tree with uncle Stefan and grandma. We sneak out to come here.” Hope confessed.

Klaus started to laugh at the girls. They were very smart little girls. Klaus thought.

“Sweetheart, you don’t really understand art, do you?” Camille interrupted them.

If there was something in this world both twins hated was when adults treat them as if they were stupid. Both of them stared angrily at Camille and then they evilly smirked. They were going to prove that woman they were much smarter than her.

“I do understand it, more than you. Look it’s a sad snowflake because he uses cold colours which represent calmness, freshness and sadness. Normally those kind of colours mostly were used in the 18th century. What you wanted to do was to represent something.” Lizzie said shocking most of the people of the room.

Rebekah, Kol, Elijah, Freya and Esther were watching the whole scene. They couldn’t believe a seven year old could be so cocky but smart at the same time. Something strangely familiar drew them to those girls.

“You feel sad and lonely. There’s something empty in your life. Also you seem to be angry cause you use lot’s of black.” Hope finished the explanation.

“I dare you to call us stupid again.” Lizzie said smiling with superiority showing everyone her cute dimpled smile.

When Klaus saw the little girl’s smile he went pale. He thought he was going to pass out. It’s true the girl resemblance to Caroline was striking but he assumed it was just in his head. However, when he saw that smile he immediately recognized where it came from. Him. That was his smile. He thought his mind was playing him a trick so he tried to ignore it. He needed to know who their mother was. Unfortunately, before he could say another word a voice interrupted them once again.

“What the hell are you two doing here?” Their aunt Katherine angrily said to them.

“Aunt Kat what are you doing here?” A shocked Hope said.

“Hayley almost had a heart attack! What is wrong with you two! Running away from the Grill without telling anyone. What if something bad might had happened to the two of you?” Katherine scolded the girls who were staring at the floor ashamed.

“I didn’t even wanted to come here! Hope wanted me to go. All we did was looking at the paintings before this woman called me stupid.” Lizzie said offended.

“I didn’t called you stupid! I just thought you didn’t understood art.” Camille defended herself.

“No wonder why Bekah would rather drink bleach than spending an entire hour with you.” Lizzie angrily spat.

Her comment made everyone to turn their heads staring at Rebekah. While Kol was laughing.

“I don’t know what she is talking about.” Bekah whispered.

“That was very rude for you to say, Lizzie. Apologize.” Kat was trying to hold her laugh. She loved to see one of her least favourite Mikaelsons feel uncomfortable and ashamed.

“She should apologize to me!”

“I’ll tell your mother you came here.” Kat threatened.

“NO! I promised I would be good! I am sorry.” Lizzie’s lowly said the last part.

“I can’t hear you well. Could you say it louder?” Camille sweetly smiled at her while the child gave her a look of pure hate.

“She is gloating! I dislike you so much. But okay, I am sorry.” This time the child loudly said.

“Now let’s go girls.” Katherine said trying to leave that cursed place as soon as possible.

“Bye, Bekah. Bye Kol!” Lizzie waved her little hand and Hope smiled at all of them sweetly saying her goodbyes to them.

“Goodbye baby Caroline! Bye little devils.” Kol winked at them.

“What did you just said? How old are they?” Klaus walked furiously towards Kol causing a scene.

“Nik, my love calm down. You’re causing a scene.” Camille whispered to him.

“EVERYONE WHO’S LAST NAME ISN’T MIKAELSON GET THE HELL OUT!” Klaus screamed to everyone scaring them.

In less than a minute everyone was out of the gallery. Every single member of his family was staring at him not understanding his reaction.

“What’s wrong Niklaus? Is that why you left Caroline? Did you knocked her up?” Kol laughed at him.

“Who is Caroline?” Finn and Freya asked.

“I SWEAR IF YOU DON’T SHUT THE FUC-“ Niklaus started to scream again.

“WHAT? You will fucking abandon us again?” Kol screamed back.

“Niklaus Calm down.” Esther said trying to separate the siblings as much as she could.

“Maybe Caroline did the right thing. Who would be proud of having a father like you? Absolutely no one! I’m sure Caroline hates you and those kids will eventually too.” Kol laughed when Klaus started to punch him repeatedly.

Elijah pushed away his brother from Kol. He needed to know who this Caroline girl was and who those twins were.

Oh, Caroline we had so much catching up to do. Klaus thought leaving his art exhibition. He drove with his car until he reached the Forbes residence.

Chapter three:

The Forbes Residence, Mystic Falls:

Hayley and Katherine had been scolding the twins for the last hour. Hope was crying because she felt really bad while Lizzie was about to cry but she held her tears. Both of them were sitting in the living room’s couch while their aunts were standing up.

“I am so sorry, please don’t tell mommy.” Hope cried.

“What the hell were you girls thinking? What if you girls get hurt? What if someone kidnaps both of you?” Hayley said upset.

“Grandma is the sheriff! Nothing was going to happen.” Lizzie pouted.

“Yes, she is. However, she is not a god she can’t be everywhere. What if you get hurt Lizzie? What if your sister gets hurt because your irresponsibility? Your mother is coming with uncle Stef and grandma and let me tell you they are very upset.” Hayley snarled angrily. She almost had a heart attack when she found out her nieces disappeared.

“I’m so sorry auntie Hayley.” Hope said staring at the floor letting her tears fall.

“What? Bu-but you said you wouldn’t tell mom! Liar.” Lizzie accused her aunt Katherine who smirked at her.

“And I kept my word, I haven’t told your mom. I told Hayley who told your mom. You realize you won’t see the sunlight ever again?” Katherine laughed at Lizzie’s angry face.

“I don’t care. I know running away from you was wrong auntie Hayley but aside from that we didn’t do anything wrong.” The little blonde haired child stubbornly said.

“Lizzie your mother said you couldn’t go to the art exhibition and you went anyways. Not only that, you also ran away with your sister without permission! You know how scared I was! Can you imagine what would I’ve done if something bad happens to you or your sister?” The brunette furiously screamed.

Seeing how angry her aunt was scared her. Hayley never screamed at them before, actually no one raised their voices at them. They grounded them, yes. But they never screamed or shouted at them. Hope silently cried hiding her face in her little hands while Lizzie bit her lip and started to tremble she was ready to cry. However, she didn’t.

“Don’t raise your voice at us. You know I don’t like when people scream.” Lizzie whispered, her eyes were watering but she still refused to cry.

“And I don’t like when you disobey me!” Hayley shouted again, deep down she felt terrible for the way she was treating her nieces but she had to make sure they would never ever do something like that again.

Lizzie stared at her aunts once again, she was shaking because her aunt screamed at her. The young child bit her lip harder but she couldn’t stop the tears from falling this time. She stood up and ran away from the living room. She opened the outside door and ran away from the house.

“Lizzie! Hey, come back here!” Katherine shouted going after her.

The youngest Forbes ignored her aunt and she kept running until someone softy grabbed her by her shoulders, stopping her from going too far. She raised her little  head to see who it was the person who stopped her. She was shocked when she saw Niklaus Mikaelson staring at her.

“Where do you think you’re going, young lady?” The artist asked.

“It’s none of your business. Why are you here? This is my grandma’s house.” The young girl dried her tears immediately, she didn’t want anyone to see her cry, she had too much pride to let people think she was a crying baby.

“I wanted to talk to someone… Why are you crying sweetheart?” Klaus asked kneeling beside her.

“This is all because of you… My mom didn’t let us go to the exhibition but we went anyways and now my aunt Hayley screamed at me. I don’t like when people scream. It scares me. Wait no… Nothing scares me forget what I said. You did this!” Lizzie stared at him angrily. If it wasn’t because her sister was obsessed with this man their aunt Hayley wouldn’t be angry at them.

Klaus stared at the little girl and smirked. She was so much like him, she did look a lot like Caroline. She had her hair, her cute freckles in her little face, the same long eyelashes, her pale skin tone… But those big blue eyes and that dimpled smile it was all his.

“It’s not my fault you went to my art exhibition.” The dirty blonde haired man amusedly said.

“Yes it is! Not only my aunt is angry with me, my mom is angry too. Today was the worst day ever. Mr. Cuddles was murdered, I got grounded because of Hope and your dumb girlfriend called me stupid.” The eleven year old crossed her arms offended.

“Camille didn’t say you were stupid sweetheart.” Klaus replied.

“Yes, she did. She insulted my intelligence. And just so you know I am much smarter than you and her together.” Lizzie raised her eyebrows rebelliously.

“You seem very smart, little one. When will your mother come home?” The man asked.

“It’s true! I am a gifted child! I don’t go to school because I am super smart. When I was four I read ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’. And when I was six I helped my mom and my aunt Kat with their geometry and maths homework!” Lizzie said upset.

“Is your sister as smart as you are?” The young Mikaelson asked shocked. If what she said was true this child was remarkable.

“No, of course not. She goes to school and has friends but she is very good at art. Wait a moment! That’s none of your business, I don’t even know you. Let me tell you something, if you try to kidnap me just so you know my grandma is the sheriff and my aunt is half Bulgarian and she teaches me martial arts and my aunt Hayley teaches me self-defense. I will hurt you before you even blink.” The young blonde tried to sound as threatening as she could.

Klaus thought she was adorable. She had a lot of attitude, that doesn’t come from Caroline, that’s for sure. His ex girlfriend has always been a sweet forgiving person who always put the others before herself. She’s always been far too good for her own good.

“I assure you I don’t want to kidnap you, little one. I just want to know when your mom will come back.” Klaus stared at the young girl who was staring at him suspiciously.

“Why are you so interested in my mom? You don’t have a chance with her anyways. She is beautiful and perfect, she doesn’t want a boyfriend. Besides, you have a stupid girlfriend. Stick to that stupid woman and leave my mom alone. She’s mine.” The young child honestly replied.

“Aren’t we a little possessive?” Klaus raised his eyebrow.

“I’m just stating the facts. I only share my mom with Hope, uncle Stefan and my aunts.” Lizzie pointed out as if it was the most obvious thing.

“Good to know.” Klaus whispered.

“What the fuck are you doing here?” A voice said from behind.

Hearing that annoying voice after twelve years only pissed him off. He and Katherine always hated each other. Since high school, she loved to make his life as miserable as possible. When he started to date Caroline, Katherine was very upset which made him the happiest man on earth. He thought that Katherine and Caroline would stop being friends once they went to collage but he was obviously wrong. Not only still were they best friends but Caroline’s own daughter called her aunt Kat. God he would never get rid of this annoying woman. Klaus darkly thought.

“Katherine what an ungrateful surprise. When will Caroline come back?” Klaus smirked at the brunette who gave him a look fool of hate.

“That’s none of your business you worthless piece of-“The Bulgarian beauty was interrupted.

“Katherine please there’s a child right in front of us.” Klaus tried to act innocent.

“Don’t worry about me, Niklaus. My aunt teaches me Bulgarian and I know some bad words. She is awesome. Go aunt Kat! Win the argument!” Lizzie encouraged her aunt.

“Lizzie, go back inside.” Katherine ordered.

“Nope. I want to see you arguing in Bulgarian. It’s super fun, besides I am angry with aunt Hayley, she screamed me.” Lizzie stubbornly said.

“She feels sorry, come on go.” Kat tried to make the young child to leave.

“Nope. I won’t move until she apologizes to me.” Lizzie replied.

“Little one, could you please go?” Klaus asked politely.

“Yes, I could. But I won’t.” Lizzie laughed.

“Hayley! Come here!” Katherine screamed.

In less than a second Hayley was already outside beside Katherine and her niece. It was in that moment were she saw Klaus Mikaelson for the first time in her entire life. When Caroline dated him, she only spoke to her about how happy she was, she saw pictures of him but she’s never meet him before until now. The pictures made him no justice he was a very handsome man. A bastard who should rot in hell, but a hot one. Hayley thought.

“I don’t believe we’ve meet before. I’m Hayley, Caroline’s sister.” Hayley pretended to be polite. She wanted to hurt that little bastard just as much as he hurt her little sister. However, as long as Lizzie was standing there she couldn’t lose her composure. The eldest brunette stretched out her hand so Klaus could shake it. Which he did, when they were shaking hands politely she scratched his hand as hard as she could with her nails discretely.

She smirked mischievously while Klaus let out a gasp of surprise and pain. He immediately stopped the handshake and gave her a look of anger.

“I’m Klaus Mikaelson, now be a good girl and tell me when will Caroline come back.” Klaus spat tired of not getting the answers he wanted.

“I don’t really see why that is your business.” Hayley gave him a fake smile.

“I think you know why it’s my business, love. I suggest you to tell Carol-“ The young child interrupted them innocently when a car parked in her grandmother’s house.

“Mommy! Uncle Stef, Grams! Hope come here they have the Christmas tree!” Lizzie screamed running towards her mother and her uncle.

“Hello, baby. If you thought I was going to ground you, you have no idea of what awaits you, young lady.” Caroline said to Lizzie hugging her.

“It’s okay mom, I know it was a bad thing to do but I did it for Hope.” Lizzie confessed.

“I know why you did it. And you’re such a great sister but you’re grounded.” Her mother scolded her.

“How will you ground us mom?” Hope asked.

“Well, for starters Stefan and I will go to the mall to buy the decorations. You will be under helicopter watch, you’re not allowed to leave the house if I don’t say you can and when we go outside you’ll be my side all the time.” Caroline started.

“Okay, I like that. All your attention will be for me, right?” Lizzie smiled, she loved when her mother and her aunts gave her the attention she deserved.

“NO! Mom why? I want to go out and make snowmen and playing in the garden without you watching me! It’s not fair.” Hope pouted.

“Why? Because you ran away to see some stupid art exhibition when I told you not to go. And you young lady don’t look so happy. I won’t let you do a single math problem until Christmas is over. No more books, no more mathematics, no more painting… Shall I continue?” The blonde haired woman said to her daughters who looked rather pissed.

“Wait a moment! At least one book! Mommy I will be bored! Don’t do that. Pretty please.” Lizzie tried to use her cute innocent face to get what she wanted.

“Let me think… Absolutely not. Now go with aunt Hayley and Grandma.” Caroline smiled when she saw her daughters were angry. They were adorable when they were upset.

“See! You did this! You are stupid Klaus Mikaelson.” Lizzie spat at him.

“Lizzie! Don’t say things like that Klaus is cool. Oh god, you’re here in my house!” Hope happily said when she saw Klaus.

“Lizzie! You can’t say things like that!” Her uncle Stefan scolded her.

“Hope stop! He is not a god, he is just a sad angry man who paints sad snowflakes.” Lizzie said tired of her sister’s attitude towards Klaus.

“I like to think I’m much more than just that, little one. But thank you for honesty.” The dirty blonde haired man amusedly replied.

Caroline stood up and turned around shocked to see the father of her children standing there after all this time. He looked as handsome as ever. He looked upset but he didn’t want to make a scene in front of the children. She needed her daughters to leave so they could speak. But knowing Klaus they will end up screaming at each other.

“I’ve changed my mind. Hope, Lizzie go with uncle Stefan and grams to the mall. Buy as many decorations as you girls want.” Caroline said.

“YEAH! Bye Klaus!” Hope screamed running towards her uncle’s car.

“I’m not going. I am staying with you.” Lizzie said grabbing her mother’s hand.

“Lizzie, go and have fun with your sister while I talk with Mr. Mikaelson.” The blonde haired woman sweetly replied.

“I don’t think I should leave you alone with him. He will say lies about me!” The little blonde whispered.

“I would never say lies about you, little one. You should go with Stefan and Liz.” Klaus assured the little girl.

“You don’t tell me what to do! Only my mom and my aunts can tell me what to do!” The blue eyed child turned her head around offended.

“Lizzie, go. I’ll be fine.” Care promised.

“You sure mommy?” The youngest child asked.

“Absolutely. Go and have fun.” Caroline kissed her daughter’s cheek.

“Okay… Can I sleep with you tonight? It’s just cause I know sometimes the monsters under the bed scare you. They don’t scare me, because I am brave but if you’re scared me and Mr. Cuddles can sleep with you.” Lizzie said.

“You sure it’s not you the one who’s scared of the monsters under the bed?” Hayley laughed.

“I don’t like dark places, okay?” The child spat, she didn’t like showing her weaknesses to anyone but her mom.

“I would love to sleep with you and Mr. Cuddles tonight but now I want you to go with your sister and have fun.” Caroline said.

“Okay, I love you mommy.” Lizzie kissed her mother’s neck and left holding Stefan’s hand.

“Oh wait! If you do something bad to my mom I will beat your ass!” The child threatened Klaus who only laughed.

“I give you my word little one. I won’t ever harm your mother.” The dirty blonde haired man said.

“Lizzie come on! We can buy all the things we want! We can buy more crayons and more paint!” Hope happily said.

“YEAH! I want my markers. I want the Copic markers. Those are the ones for real artists like us!” Lizzie ran to her uncle’s car.

“It was nice to see you again, mate.” Klaus said to Stefan.

“Too bad I can’t say the same.” Stefan said driving away with the twins.

Once the twins were far away from the house. Caroline’s smile banished and she looked furious. She walked towards her ex boyfriend and finally talked to him after twelve years.

“What the hell you think you’re doing here?”

“Hello, love. It’s been so long since we last saw each other.” Klaus smiled.

“I won’t ask you again. Why are you here Niklaus?” Caroline furiously asked.

“Care let’s go inside before the neighbours call the cops because they hear screams.” Hayley said.

“Oh no, this monster won’t lay a foot inside my house.” Caroline spat.

“Come on love. Be smart and listen to your sister.” Klaus smirked.

“You shut the hell up, piece of shit.” Hayley turned to him.

“Fine, let’s talk. Come on.” Caroline said entering her house, Klaus Katherine and Hayley followed her.

When Klaus entered the house the first thing he noticed were the pictures hanging on the walls. There were lots of pictures but the one of them got his attention.

The twins were one or maybe two years old and they were wearing the same clothes. A cute grey shirt with white details and black pants. Both of them were in a red waggon and Caroline was pulling the waggon. She had a huge smile on her face staring at the person who took the picture and one of the twins was biting her sister’s neck. He had to admit seeing his ex so happy it warmed his heart.

“They were a year and half in that picture.” Caroline explained.

“They are beautiful Caroline.” Klaus honestly said not meeting her gaze.

“Yes, they are. Thank you. Now tell me why you are here.” Caroline asked for the third time.

“I was in my art exhibition when I saw two little girls staring at one of paintings. I thought they were cute and I was curious to see who they were. Children that age aren’t interested in art. Imagine my surprise when I saw them. Specially the blonde one.” Klaus started to explain.

“Lizzie is the blonde one, Hope is the honey haired one.” The youngest Forbes explained once again.

“I know.” He whispered.

“Cut the crap say what you want and leave.” Hayley spat.

“This has nothing to do with you.” Klaus spat back.

“Of course it does. Remember when you threatened my little sister who was just sixteen when you got her pregnant. Who was also bulimic too… Who the fuck you think took care of her while she was vulnerable and scared.” The brunette walked towards Klaus.

“Hayley stop. Go wait outside please.” Caroline begged her.

“If you think I’m going to leave you alone with this monster you are mistaken, little sister.” Hayley said.

“Are they mine?” He finally asked.

“No.” Caroline replied.

“Now you’re lying to me.” The man sarcastically laughed.

“Then I’ll guess it makes us even. After all, wasn’t our entire relationship in a lie? Because you made a fucking bet with Damon Salvatore.” The blonde snarled.

“Oh, come on love. You knew it was much more than that.” Klaus said.

“Really because I thought you only wanted to fuck me. And since you’re already done that I became completely and utterly useless to you.” Caroline used the same words he said to her twelve years ago against him.

Klaus let out another laugh. He knew she had reasons to hate him and treat him this way. However, if those girls were his, he had right to know, even if he didn’t want them in the first place.

“I want to meet them properly. They are mine, I am their father.” Klaus demanded.

“Are you serious? SERIOUSLY?” Caroline invaded his personal space.

“Of course I am, your mother said she would take care of it and after twelve years I found out I have children. TWINS to be exact!” Klaus screamed at his ex girlfriend.

“Why are you so freaking surprised? I told you I wasn’t going to abort.” The blonde screamed at him.

“Then at least you should have said something when they were born!”

“You blocked me you fucking idiot! Besides, why should I tell you anything about them? You didn’t even want them in the first place. You told me my babies were just a bunch of cells that you didn’t want anything that would link us until the day we die. You called my babies IT!” Caroline shouted furiously. Her eyes were watering because she was very angry.

“I overreacted twelve years ago, I was young and afraid. But if you told me you had them I would have stepped up.” Klaus lowered his voice.

“You are delusional Niklaus. Are you forgetting when I begged you not to abandon me? When I told you we could had raised them together? We could had been a family, like the one we never had. But you choose to abandon me, us. You knew how much I loved you. I would had done anything for you, you were my world. And you knew it, you knew it from the very beginning. You used me, you played with me like a toy. You broke my heart. But let me tell you something. I won’t let you break my daughters hearts. You are not going to ruin them like you did to me.” Caroline whipped out her tears as fast as she could. He would never see her crying again, she wasn’t the same little Caroline who loved him. No, now she was a strong woman who never needed a man.  

“I…forgive me.” Klaus said staring at her.

“I can’t.” The twenty-eight year old simply said.

“Caroline listen to me… Please. I’ve found out I had them just an three hours ago. But now that Mikael is dead I can step up.” He said softy grabbing her hands.

“Mikael? Are you going to use that bastard as an excuse to be an inexistent father? It doesn’t matter how he treated you. I told you we could ran away together. But you didn’t.”

“You knew I couldn’t abandon Bekah and Kol with that man alone.”

“Right, it was much easier tell your sixteen year old ex-girlfriend to abort. You are not a father, all you’ll ever be to my children is a sperm donor. I raised them on my own since the day they were born. I don’t need you, we don’t need you.” Caroline pushed him away.

“Look love, I’m trying to be good to you. But if you don’t let me see those kids, I’ll do everything that’s in my power to see them. Even if it means take them away fro-“

Before the blue eyed man could finish his threat the young blonde haired woman slapped him. She send him backwards. Twelve years ago, she slapped him hard but this time she hit him even harder. Klaus didn’t even tried to protect himself, he knew she had every right to treat him this way. But those kids were his and he wanted to know them.

“Don’t even think about threaten me ever again Niklaus. You are not going to see them.”

“Yes, yes I will. They are mine and I have my rights Caroline.”

“What rights? You didn’t want them for god’s sake! You think that because you see my children once in your stupid art gallery makes you a father? Come on Niklaus, you are a mess. I won’t let my daughters spend time with a man like you.” Caroline said.

“I am one of the most successful artists of the century, love. I can assure you I have all the means to raise them.” Klaus replied.

“Yes, you are absolutely right. You might have all the money in the world. However, you’re a drug addict with serious angry issues who sleeps with a different woman every night. Do you really think I am going to let my babies spend a single night under the same roof as you?”

“I stopped doing drugs a year ago and I’m engaged. I’m a changed man.” Klaus tried to prove her how turned his life around.

“You’re engaged?” Caroline asked shocked.

“Yes.” Klaus replied.

“Then go and have kids with your new fiancé and leave my kids alone.” Caroline shortly replied.

“Love-“He was interrupted when his phone started to ring. He saw it was Camille, his fiancé. The one who was calling him. He thought about ignoring the call but he knew if he did that she would be calling him until he pick it up. Therefore, he answered her call.

“Nikky?” Camille sweetly said.

“Nikki? She calls you Nikki, that’s pathetic.” Katherine whispered holding her laugh.

“Yes, love? I’m rather busy at the moment.” Klaus tried to end up the conversation as fast as he could.

“Where are you? After you had that reaction in the gallery I’m worried. And Rebekah doesn’t talk to me. I think since the little brat humiliated me she hates me.” Camille said.

“Don’t you dare to call her brat, she is not a brat. Her name is Elizabeth.” Klaus said defensively.

As upset as Caroline was with him, it cheered her up to see he immediately jumped to protect her daughter. Even though he only knew about her existence less than three hours ago. Katherine on the other hand was smiling mischievously. She didn’t like Camille she thought that woman was insufferable. She played the victim and Katherine hated people like that. They reminded her of her traitorous little twin sister Elena. Katherine stared at Klaus and she started to moan.

“Klaus baby, don’t stop!” Katherine fake moaned.

“Nikki, who is that woman!” Camille screamed.

“Katherine cut the crap! She is no one!” Klaus replied throwing daggers at Katherine with his eyes.

“Nik, you’re so big and thick… HARDER!” The brown eyed beauty fake moaned harder.

“You are a pain in the ass!” Klaus screamed at her making Katherine laugh.

“I’ll guess that makes us even!” Katherine winked at Klaus.

“I hate you! You cheating bastard!” Camille hang up the phone.

“Cam, Camille? FUCK! What have you done?” Klaus screamed.

“I ruined your relationship, karma is a bitch.” The Bulgarian beauty replied.

“I have to go. Caroline love, you’ll be hearing from me. I want to meet my daughters properly.” The handsome man said.

“Get out of my house Klaus.” Caroline said.

“Goodbye love.” Klaus smirked showing his cute dimples.

“I hope you have an accident and die! Or better I hope your dick falls off.” Katherine replied.

“If I ever see you in my house I will beat the shit out of you.” Hayley said closing the door at his face.

After Klaus left the Forbes residence Caroline broke down letting her tears finally fall. It was unbelievable how anyone could be such a bastard. She thought.

“Hey, Care. He won’t take them away. It’s going to be okay.” Hayley said hugging her little sister.

“Yes, yes he will. You don’t know him like I do.” The young blonde returned the hug.

“He can’t Carebear, he has no power over Lizzie and Hope. If he takes you to court, we have enough evidence to make sure he never sees the girls. Besides you have one of the best lawyers of NOLA by your side.” Katherine said.

“I don’t want to exposure my daughters to that. And I don’t want them near his family. I don’t even know who his three eldest siblings are but Rebekah always hated me, Kol is completely irresponsible and Esther is a terrifying woman.” Caroline explained.

“Care, I swear no one will take them away from you.” Hayley promised to her sister.

“What if they love him more than me?”

“We both know Lizzie will instantly hate him the moment she knows he is her father. And as for Hope she might forgive him but she’ll never love him more than you, Care. You are their mother, you’re all they’ve ever known.” Katherine explained.

“But I don’t want my daughter to hate him because he hurt me. I don’t want her to hate anyone.” Caroline whispered.

“Everything will be alright.” Hayley protectively said.

“I hope so.” Caroline whispered.

An hour later Stefan and Liz were back with the girls. They were over the moon with all the decorations they bought. They also bought crayons, paints and notebooks so they could write and draw. Lizzie sat down next to her mom and she started to write difficult math equations in silence while Hope was sitting in the carpet painting with her new crayons.

“Mom look at my new drawing!” Hope proudly said.

The eleven year old gave the drawing to her mother. It was a drawing of a cute monster and two girls holding hands. One of the girls has blonde hair, she supposed it was Lizzie while the golden haired one was Hope. It was a very adorable drawing.

“I love it! Do you want to hang it up on the fridge?” Caroline proudly smiled.

“Yes! Lizzie stop writing boring difficult stuff and paint with me!” Hope said cheerfully.

Lizzie however didn’t even looked at her sister. She was busy doing her math problems. “It’s boring to you because you don’t understand it!”

“Nobody likes maths Lizzie, that’s for smartasses. That’s weird.” Hope said.

“Nobody likes a crying baby.” Lizzie shot back.

“I am not a crying baby!” The eldest twin said offended.

“Yes, yes you are. And it pisses me off. You think just because you cry your problems will resolve. No, Hope.” The youngest kid said.

“You cried like a baby just because I accidentally broke Mr. Cuddles.” Hope accused.

“That’s different and you know it! He is my teddy, I had him since I was a baby.” Lizzie explained.

“It was an accident, you know I would never hurt Mr. Cuddles. You said horrible things to me.” Hope stared at her sister sadly.

“I…I was angry. You hurt me and I wanted to hurt the same way you did to me. It was very wrong and I am sorry. But all those horrible things I’ve said you know I didn’t mean any of them, right? You are my sister and my only friend my age. You are the person I love the most in this world. And mommy of course.” The blonde haired girl said.

“I love you, Lizzie.” Hope hugged her sister, sniffed trying to hide her tears.

“Seriously, are you crying? I swear I don’t understand people, I say good things I made mom cry I say good things to you and you cry.” Lizzie said returning the hug.

“You girls are so adorable.” Her aunt Kat said.

“I think I have the special gift of making people cry. It doesn’t matter what I say they always end up like this. Aunt Kat I want to see that woman who called me stupid before my powers wear off.” Katherine started to laugh while Lizzie stared at her not understanding why she was laughing. She meant every word she said, she wanted her revenge because that woman called her stupid. Plus she had to apologize and she hates doing that.

“Mom can we go to the Grill again? I wanna see baby Vicky, she can crawl now.” Hope asked.

“Please mommy.” Lizzie begged.

“You two are supposed to be grounded girls.” Caroline smiled.

“We’ll be good! Please mommy.” Hope begged.

“I am occasionally good. Please mommy.” Lizzie also begged.

“Fine, but you promise me to be good?” Caroline turned towards her youngest daughter.

“Hey! Mom that’s super mean. Why every time something bad happens you think it’s because of me? I mean it’s kind of the truth… but at least you could give me the benefit of the doubt. You know I don’t want to be mean mommy, but sometimes people act stupid and someone has to tell them.” Lizzie explained.

“Yes of course baby, someone but not you. Come on grab your coats girls.” Caroline said.

“YES! High five Lizzie!” Hope raised her hand so her sister could do the high five.

“I’ll go with you. God knows I need a drink.” Katherine muttered.

“I’ll go just to make sure you’re okay, Care.” Stefan whispered to his best friend.

“I am very tired girls. I’ll stay here tonight.” Liz smiled.

“Why are you tired grams? I love you.” Lizzie hugged her grandmother.

“And I love you more!” Hope said joining the hug.

“No, you don’t.”

“Yes, yes I do.”

“No.”

“Yes.”

“Girls enough. Come on, let’s go to see baby Vicky.” Stefan cut the argument.

“Yes, Uncle Stefan.” Both girls said at the same time.

The Grill:

Klaus sat between Camille and his brother Kol. He managed to convince her that the woman who was screaming over the phone was actually someone who despised him. Camille made a huge scene as to be expected, but she end up believing him. Kol came with them just because he wanted to get late. Elijah was observing them from the other side of the Grill playing the piano. Finn and Sage were also there with them, they brought their only son Henrik with them.

“Henrik do you want something?” Sage asked her son, who didn’t even looked at her.

“If you’re hungry or thirsty just come here okay?” Sage said to her son who nodded his head but he was focused on a math problem.

“Sit down Sage.” Finn said to his very pregnant wife.

“What do you want have this time?” Camille sweetly asked.

“I would like to have a girl. But whatever the gender we just want to have a healthy child.” The red haired woman smiled while Finn rubbed her belly.

“Let’s hope this child is normal.” The blonde haired woman kindly said.

“Camille.” Klaus warned.

“My son is perfectly normal, just because he is autistic doesn’t mean he is not normal.” A very offended Finn said.

“Finn, she didn’t mean it.” Klaus tried to protect his fiancé.

“Uncle Matt!” Twins yelled jumping to his arms.

“Hello, girls. I’ve heard you girls got grounded again.” Matt laughed.

“Yeah! But mom let us come to see baby Vicky. Where is she?” Hope asked sitting in one of the tables.

“Lexi will be here in thirty minutes. We needed more diapers.” The blue eyed handsome man said.

“I’ll guess we have to wait.” Hope pouted.

“KOL! BEKAH!” Lizzie said running towards them.

“Lizzie, don’t run inside the Grill!” Caroline scolded walking inside the Grill with Katherine, Stefan and Hayley.

“That’s the creep I told you about.” Hayley whispered looking at Kol.

“He is not a creep, he is Kol. Klaus’s brother.” Caroline whispered back staring at Klaus.

“What happened to your face Kol?” A shocked Lizzie softy touched his face.

“A bad person, did this to me. But don’t worry sweetheart, I’m fine.” The man handsomely smirked.

“Who is that bad person? My aunt is hal-“

“Bulgarian and she teaches you Karate I know.” Kol finished for her.

“Do you want to meet my family?” Lizzie innocently asked.

“It would be an honour.” The brown haired man smiled.

“Okay, mom! Uncle Stefan! Come here!” Lizzie shouted.

Once the adults were near them Lizzie started. “This is my mom, her name is Caroline and she is so out of your league, this is my aunt Kat she is half Bulgarian and she is awesome, this one is my auntie Hayley she is a vet and she loves animals and finally this is my uncle Stefan he is epic and I love him”

“We actually already knew each other. We studied together.” Rebekah sweetly explained.

“Does that mean you and Klaus already knew each other? You knew him and you never told me!” Hope asked.

“We studied in the same high school that’s all it was. Nothing important.” Caroline muttered.

“Ouch, you wound me love.” Klaus said with his hand touching his clothed chest.

“Nikky, don’t call her love.” A jealous Camille said.

“See mommy, this is the woman who said I was stupid. I had to say sorry twice cause aunt Kat made me! She said that if I didn’t apologize she would told you I went to the art gallery and she did anyways.” Lizzie stared angrily at her aunt who only smirked.

“For the last time I didn’t called you stupid!” The blonde haired woman said.

“Let me introduce you to my family. Those three are my eldest siblings Klaus, Elijah and this one is Finn. And those are my sisters you already know Bekah and this one is Freya, and the red haired one is Finn’s wife Sage. And this one well… She’s Camille.” Kol explained to the twins.

“And who is him?” Hope pointed at the child who sat alone in the table.

“He is Henrik, he is my son. He doesn’t talk though.” Sage sweetly explained to the children.

“It’s nice to meet you all of you. Except you Camille.” Lizzie hid behind her mother suddenly becoming shy.

“Yes, we don’t like you.” Hope finished.

“Lizzie, Hope…” Caroline warned.

“No, Lizzie no. She said I was stupid! That I didn’t understand art! I literary ran away from aunt Hayley just to go to the art exhibition. How dare you to say I didn’t understood art!? What’s next she is going to say I suck at math?” The offended child spat.

“You’re good at maths too? Prove it.” Camille challenged.

Lizzie stared at her mother and her sister and smirked with superiority showing her cute dimples. “Go on.”

“Let’s see if you’re so advanced. What is nine plus eight?” Camille asked.

“Are you serious right now? Everyone knows it’s seventeen.” The child replied.

“Yeah, yes it is. Very good Lizzie. What is fifteen plus seventeen?” The green eyed woman asked.

“Thirty-two. And It’s Elizabeth for you, only the people I like can call me Lizzie. Everyone else in this table but you can call me Lizzie.” The child said making everyone laugh.

“Lizzie you promised me.” Caroline whispered.

“Sorry mom but she acting stupid.” Lizzie whispered loudly so everyone heard her.

“Okay then Elizabeth. What is fifty-seven plus one hundred and thirty-five.” Camille asked trying to ignore how much this child hated her.

“One hundred and ninety-two.” The little blonde replied.

“That’s… Correct. Very well then. What is fifty seven multiplied by one hundred and thirty five is?” Camille asked a hard question knowing she would fail.

“Camille you now no one can know that!” Bekah said.

“Well since she is so advanced I want to see it.” The blonde said with a fake smile.

“You don’t have to reply to that, sweetheart.” Klaus smiled at the child who let out a sigh.

“She knows it! Lizzie do that thing were you say the entire math stuff right!” Hope said.

“She can’t know that, Hope.” Camille smirked.

“7695. And the square root is 87.7 and change.” Lizzie replied shocking everyone in the Mikaelson family.

“No way.” Kol said doing the math calculus on his phone.

“It’s wrong right?” Camille asked. It was impossible a child could knew that. Not even an adult could say it without using a calculator.

“It’s correct! And the square too! High five little devil.” Kol congratulated her making her laugh.

“Little devil?” Caroline asked.

“Oh yeah, he wanted to be auntie Hayley’s boyfriend and we said lies about her so she would be upset with him. She kicked him in the balls, it was super fun.” Lizzie explained laughing.

“That’s why he acted so strangely.” Hayley said.

“Yeah, he thought you liked boys. We thought it would be fun and it was.” Hope laughed.

“You don’t like men? Well that makes a lot of sense.” Kol smiled.

“Even If I liked men I’m out of your league.” Hayley smirked staring at the blonde beauty who sat beside Rebekah.

“Sage, why doesn’t Henrik talk?” Hope innocently asked.

“He is a very special child. He is gifted but he is also autistic. You know what autism means, sweetheart?” Sage asked and Hope shocked her head.

“Does he like maths?” Lizzie asked.

“Yes! That’s all he likes, he writes all kinds of equations. I think you two could become good friends.” Sage smiled.

“Can I go and talk to him mommy?” Lizzie asked.

“Yes, of course.” Caroline said.

Lizzie sat beside Henrik, he didn’t even looked at her. He looked rather upset because he couldn’t complete a problem. Lizzie shyly stared at his notebook and she grabbed one of his pencils. She touched his shoulder and he started at her for a moment before trying to solve the problem. He couldn’t do it so he got upset and punched the table, scaring Lizzie for a moment. Finn already stood up to make sure Henrik didn’t had a meltdown. But Lizzie raised her little hand as a sign to make him stop. The eldest Mikaelson stared at her curiously and waited for her.

“Hi Henrik, My name is Elizabeth Katherine Forbes. I can help you, look this problem is wrong because…” Lizzie started to correct the problem so Henrik could solve it.

“See, you don’t have to be upset.” Lizzie smiled and Henrik smiled back and he gave her another pencil so she could solve more problems with him.

“Lizzie you made a friend your own age! I knew you could do it!” Hope proudly said.

“Your sister doesn’t have friends?” Klaus asked with a frown.

“No wonder why.” Camille muttered.

“Excuse me?” Caroline aggressively replied.

“She didn’t meant it, love.” Klaus corrected Camille once again.

“Aunt Kat says she has zero social skills, it’s just because she is so smart she thinks people our age are boring. She also doesn’t go to school. Mommy took her to like four different schools and she always gets expelled. Now she is home schooled.” Hope explained.

“What about you, sweetie?” Freya asked.

“I go to school and I have lot’s of friends. I like art.” Hope explained blushing.

“Tomorrow, we will have a huge lunch would you like to come?” Klaus asked.

“Why you want them to come? It’s a family dinner and they are not a part of the family.” Camille surprised said, her fiancé didn’t even like children and now he wanted to invite them.

“And neither are you, but here you are annoying all of us.” Rebekah spat.

“Can we go mommy? Can my uncle and my aunts come?” Hope asked.

“Of course, anyone you want sweetheart.” Klaus smiled.

“Can we go? Please!?”Hope begged showing her cute dimples to see if her mother agree to it.

“I don’t know.” Caroline said.

“I will make sure Lizzie is good!”

“HEY! I am occasionally good. As long as this stupid woman leaves me alone everything will be fine.” Lizzie shouted from the other table.

“I don’t believe we’ve meet I am Elijah Mikaelson.” Elijah walked towards Caroline.

“Caroline Forbes.” She said politely.

“I would mean a lot for my family if your family came tomorrow to our lunch. Kat- Katerina?” Elijah stared at his former one night stand.

“You know each other?” Rebekah asked.

“It’s been a while Lijah.” Katherine said.

“Indeed. Come tomorrow please.” The handsome pianist begged. 

“Alright, I’ll guess we could go.” Caroline said making Klaus smile showing his cute dimples.

“YEAH, I will show you all my drawings Klaus!” Hope smiled happily waiting for tomorrow. It was going to be an epic day.

Summary: Klaus and Caroline were together in high school. However, when they finally slept together he completely ignored her. A few months after she finds out she is pregnant and he tells her to abort the child. What will happen when they meet again twelve years later? Will Caroline ever forgive him?

Chapter Four:

The Forbes Residence, Mystic Falls:

Caroline woke up at 7 a.m. five hours before the lunch with the Mikaelsons. She was nervous, she didn’t wanted to go to the lion’s den with her daughters. However, she had no choice they were already expecting them and most importantly she didn’t want to break her eldest daughter’s heart.

The blonde haired woman walked towards her daughters’ bedroom. When she opened the door from their bedroom, her heart melted at the adorable sight it was in front of her. Hope was sleeping hugging Mr. Wolfy and holding her little sister’s hand while Lizzie was hugging her newly sewed Mr. Cuddles. She took a picture of them with her IPhone because they looked adorable.

“They look so sweet when they sleep.” A voice behind her said.

“And when they’re awake too. I made two gorgeous babies.” Caroline proudly said.

“You did. Are you sure you want to go, Care? We can go back to New Orleans and forget about the Mikaelsons.” Hayley whispered to her sister.

“Let’s go to the kitchen. We have to make breakfast before they wake up.” Caroline said closing the door of the twins’ bedroom.

When they both were in the kitchen, Hayley closed the door, trying to make the lesser noise as possible. Then she sat on one of the chairs staring at her sister who was making coffee.

“How are you feeling today, little Carebear?” The brunette asked.

“Tired, angry, upset and nervous.” Caroline looked at her sister for a brief moment before turning around to make breakfast.

“Let’s go back to New Orleans then. Fuck that bastard, fuck his entire family. They mean nothing to the girls, we are the only family those kids need.” Hayley said trying to make her sister feel better.

“As much as I would love to leave and never come back until he leaves again, we can’t Hayley.” The blonde woman said.

“And why not? Is this because of Hope? She’ll forget about Klaus. We buy her a dog and she’ll forget about how much she wants to see him. After all she’s just a little girl.”

“You don’t understand how Klaus works. Now that he has the idea of being a father, he won’t stop until he gets what he wants. He will follow me to the end of the world just to get the chance.” The twenty eight year old explained.

“Then we’ll take him to court. We have enough evidence to make sure he doesn’t come near them.” Hayley assured her.

“I won’t put my children through all of that. I just… I don’t want them to blame me once they grow up that I didn’t let them meet their dad. God, I’m so stupid.” Caroline let out a sigh with her hands covering her face.

“Hey, hey, hey don’t be so harsh on yourself. You are the best mom ever. I get you don’t want to put Hope and Lizzie through that but if he tries to take them away I’ll go to the court myself or I’ll simply go and kill him. Kat knows people who can get rid of his body.” Hayley joked making Caroline laugh.

“A part of me wants to believe that he is a changed man like he says he is. But the other part wants to see him on his knees, crying his heart out for forgiveness. I want him to feel as vulnerable and lost as I felt. Hayley, does this make me a bad person?”

“Considering all the crap that bastard put you through, nope. In fact, you should had kicked him in the balls, just like I did to his brother. Besides I can’t wait to see Lizzie’s reaction if she finds out he is her father. She already dislikes him and once she knows who he truly is she’ll hate him with a passion.” The brunette smiled standing up helping her sister with the breakfast.    

“That’s exactly what I am trying to stop. I don’t want neither of my children hating anyone because they hurt me in the past.”

“You’ve grown up so much, Carebear. I am proud of the woman you’ve become.” Hayley said with her hands in her sister’s shoulders.

“It’s been a long ride Hayls.” Caroline smiled.

“Indeed. So when do we have to go the lion’s den?” The eldest sister asked.

“Elijah said they’re expecting us at 12 a.m. we still have five hours to go.” She explained.

“Aside from Klaus and his fiancé everyone else seems kind.”

“I can’t wait for you to meet his mother, Esther.” Care muttered.

“Satan’s mother?” Hayley asked baking some waffles for the girls.

“Satan’s mother.” Caroline confirmed.

“What are you two gossiping about?” Katherine interrupted them entering the kitchen.

“About the ‘father’ of our nieces and his mother. Now you’re here and the girls are sleeping feel free to tell us why did Mr. Suits called you Katerina.” Hayley said taking a sip of her hot coffee.

“We had a one night stand in Paris. It was three years ago in Paris fashion week I had to write an article for the magazine and you girls know my boss, that piece of shit, well basically he took the credit for my work and as you two knew I was pissed. So I went out to a bar and saw a hot man playing the piano. He was so handsome it hurts and he was very well dressed.” Katherine said pulling her head into a messy bun.

“And?” Both sisters asked at the same time.

“Bitches please, I’m Katherine Pierce. And Katherine Pierce always gets what she wants.” Katherine smirked.

“You totally had sex with him!” Caroline accused.

“Yup, all night long. However, in the morning I felt ashamed, so I ran away. The last time I trusted a man he knocked up my twin sister.” The brunette scorned thinking about Damon and Elena.

“But why does he call you Katerina?” Hayley asked.

“The way he looked at you it was so romantic!” The blonde said.

“I didn’t gave him my real name, I didn’t even gave him my surname. My name in Bulgarian is Katerina. So I knew if he tried to look for me he wouldn’t find me. Care get out of that world full of unicorns and rainbows he is probably married or dating someone.” Katherine sat down on the couch.

“You could at least help us cooking.” Hayley scolded.

“I got out of that unicorn world when I got pregnant.” Caroline forced a smile.

“You know I don’t cook.” The Bulgarian beauty complained.

“He looked at you as if he saw a ghost. Maybe he still has a crush on you.” The blonde replied.

“I don’t know. I’ll guess we’ll talk later. Besides I can’t wait to see my adorable friends Rebekah and Klausy.” Kat sarcastically said.

“Okay, I get Klaus’ hate but why you dislike her? She seems sweet.” Hayley said.

“She is not, she is a spoiled, spoiled brat.” Katherine said.

“Stefan is coming with us, right?” The twenty-eight year old asked.

“Did you really think I would let my girls go alone?” Stefan yawned grabbing a plate with some waffles.

“You’re the only one who never got screwed up by a Mikaelson, Hayls. How’s that feel?” Katherine laughed.

“I think Freya is gorgeous. Besides Stefan didn’t hook up with any Mikaelson.” Hayley honestly replied.

“She is.” Stefan said.

“He had a crush on Rebekah but Klaus made her sister choose between him or Stefan and she choose her family.” Katherine explained.

“When I thought I couldn’t dislike Klaus more he reinvents himself. How can such a bastard make such adorable babies?” Hayley questioned.

“They both got their cuteness from their mother. But Lizzie’s attitude that’s all from him.” Stefan said.

“And her eyes, her smile, her dimples…” Caroline continued.

“Yes, we get it Care.” Her sister cut her.

“It’s funny because Lizzie is your mini me but she acts just like Klaus but she has her adorable innocent side. While Hope looks just like Klaus but she has your entire attitude. Perfect mix.” Stefan smiled.

“Mommy?” A weak voice interrupted them.

The four adults turned around seeing Hope with Mr. Wolfy in her arms, she looked rather pale and she was trembling. “Mommy I don’t feel so good.” Hope started to cough.

Caroline pressed her hand to her daughter’s forehead to see if she had fever. She was burning up. Hope was sick. The young child hugged her mother pressing her sweaty forehead to her mother’s chest.

“Baby, you’re burning up. Stef carry her to the couch.” Caroline said to Stefan who immediately had his niece in his arms.

“Come on little wolf, you will lay for a little while on the couch.” Her uncle laid her on the couch covering her and Mr. Wolfy with a warm wooden blanket.

“But mommy! I-I want to go! Klaus has to see my drawings.” The eleven year old sweetly said.

“I know you want to go, but you are sick baby. I don’t want you to feel bad while were there.” Caroline sadly smiled.

“Mommy, we still have more time. I can feel good again I’m sure.” Hope said trying to sit up.

“This is what we’re going to do. Auntie Hayley will give me the thermometer to check if you have high fever, then you will have your breakfast and finally you will take some medicines to make you feel better. And if mommy sees you improved we’ll go. But if you still sick we stay here. Deal?” Caroline sweetly said kissing her daughter’s forehead.

“Deal!” The child tried to sound happy but she sounded tired.

“I’m going to wake up your sister, you know how grumpy she gets if we wake her up late.” Caroline smiled at her daughter leaving the room.

“Here are your waffles, Rudolf.” Her aunt smiled at her leaving the young’s girl breakfast on the living room table near where the child was laying.

“Don’t call me that! My nose is red cause I had to blow my nose lots of times!” The young child said upset.

“I know that.” Katherine winked at her niece.

“That shirt you’re wearing is from two seasons ago.” Hope stick her tongue out at her aunt Katherine who let a gasp.

“How dare you?” Katherine joked.

“Aunt Kat, is Mr. Mikaelson your new boyfriend?” The young girl innocently asked.

“Which Mikaelson?” Kat asking sitting next to Hope.

“Elijah, he dresses very well and he calls you Katerina.” Hope said.

“No, he is not. Yet…Eat your breakfast and rest for a little while.” Kat changed the subject as fast as she could.

“Aunt Kat, do you think Klaus will like my drawings? I worked really hard to draw and paint them! What if he thinks my drawings are ugly or not good enough?” Hope asked afraid. She admired Klaus and his art he was awesome and if she managed to please him that would mean she could become an artist just like him.

Katherine gave her eldest niece a half smile. As much as she hates that blonde gorgeous bastard, she knew how much her niece admired him and his artwork. If she only knew who that man truly was… Katherine darkly thought.

“You are incredibly talented Hope. Your drawings are amazing! Do you understand? A-MA-ZI-NG, I’m sure he will love it but if he doesn’t like them, he proves my point.”

“What point auntie Kat?” The honey haired girl curiously asked.

“All men are idiots.” Katherine said making the young child laugh between coughs while Stefan acted as if he was offended.

“Sush Stefan. You know you are. We still love you though. Right little wolfie?”

“Yes! We love you a lot! You are the best uncle ever.” The child sweetly said.

“Next time you see a spider in your room or you need help carrying your bags forget about my help, since I’m an idiot I will only slow you down.” The youngest Salvatore smirked.

“If I see a spider it’s your duty to kill it! You are the man of the house.” Kat scoffed.

“Auntie Hayley is the man of the house. She is the one who rules the house not uncle Stefan. Also Uncle Stefan sometimes is afraid of some spiders while auntie Hayley isn’t. She’s the boss.” Hope said.

“She’s got a point there.” Stefan laughed throwing Katherine a piece of his waffle.

“Stefan what the hell!” Katherine grabbed a piece of Hope’s waffle and threw it at him.

“Hey! It’s my waffle!” Hope said protecting what was left of her waffle.

“What the hell are you girls doing?” Hayley asked walking towards Hope with a thermometer in her right hand.

“They are throwing pieces of my waffle!” Hope said eating the waffle as fast as she could.

“Slow down, you’re going to choke with the waffle.” Stefan scolded.

“Stop throwing waffles.” Hope said back at him.

“Put the thermometer in your armpit, Hope.” Hayley said helping her niece.

“I feel so sick, but I really want to go. Klaus has to see my paintings!” Hope said resting her little head in her aunt’s shoulder.

“Your health comes first Hope. Try not to move your arm.” Hayley scolded.

“Okay, auntie Hayley. What dress should I wear? I have to look cute.” Hope wanted to cause a good impression to Klaus and his family. She liked them all except Klaus’ girlfriend.

“You look amazing in everything.” Hayley said waiting for the thermometer to beep.

“Look who’s awake.” Caroline said entering the room with her youngest daughter.

“Hey there Pikachu.” Katherine joked because her niece was wearing an adorable Pikachu onesie.

“Good morning! Why didn’t you woke me up Hope?” Lizzie said walking sitting in the kitchen table where her breakfast was.

“I am sick Lizzie! What if we can’t go today to see Klaus?” Hope said worried about this whole situation.

“Then this means we don’t have to go and I don’t have to get dressed?” Lizzie excitedly said.

“Wait what? I thought you wanted to go!” Hope said.

“I wanted to see Kol and Henrik but I just don’t like Klaus.” The youngest blonde complained.

“Why you dislike him so much? He didn’t treat you badly, did he?” Caroline asked. If Klaus dared to say something that could possibly make her children feel uncomfortable she will make sure he never sees her children ever again or at least until they turn eighteen.

“No… But everything bad that happened to me it’s because of him. First, his dumb girlfriend tries to make me look stupid in his art exhibition and I had to apologize twice to her, TWICE Hope, then auntie Hayley screamed at me because we ran away to see him. And he has strange intentions with mom.” Lizzie explained while eating her waffle.

“What do you mean?” Hope asked while Hayley was checking her temperature.

“Well, he wanted to talk to mommy. He even came here just to see her, I don’t understand what he wanted, and then when we saw him at the Grill he invited us to have lunch with them. Why? I don’t understand it. It just seems suspicious.” Before Lizzie could think about why Klaus invited them, Hayley interrupted her.

“It seems you have just a little fever. I think as long as you don’t run around you can go.” Hayley laughed when Hope jumped from the couch happily.

“YEAH! I am going to look for my best drawings.” Hope said running to her bedroom.

“Mommy, I don’t want to go.” Lizzie said once her sister was not in the room.

“Why not?” Her mother asked.

“Because you will ground me again!” Lizzie pouted.

“Lizzie I don’t ground you because I like it. I just don’t want you to be rude nor disrespectful to people. I raised a polite child not a mean one.” Caroline sat beside her.

“I know I know mommy. But Camille is super mean and if she is mean to me or you or Hope or anyone of my family I will have to be mean. You will ground me but it’ll be worth it.” The young child smirked mischievously.

“Lizzie, I need you to promise me something.” Caroline said touching one of her daughter’s cute dimples.

“Tell me mommy.” The youngest Forbes stared at her mom curiously.

“Once we’re having lunch with the Mikaelsons I don’t want you to be mean, I don’t want you to say things that could possibly offend anyone. I know you don’t like Camille but you will only have to say hello and that’s it then you can stay with me all the time. And if she is mean to you, you don’t say anything back. I am your mom and it’s me the one who has to defend you. Understood?” Caroline meet her daughter’s gaze.

“Yes, mommy. I will be kind to Camille and then I’ll go to play with Henrik, Hope and Kol. I really like Kol and Henrik.” Lizzie confessed.

“Kol is a very funny man, he is a child in a man’s body.” Caroline smiled.

“Can I bring my notebook and my photo album? I want to show Kol how cute we are since the day we were born.” The little blonde asked.

“Of course you can, I’m sure Kol will love to see all of our pictures.”

“Yeah, especially the ones in the beach, that creep.” Hayley muttered.

“We lied to him so you will be pissed, it was so fun.” The child laughed.

“For you and hope maybe but for him not so much.” Hayley laughed.

“Come on baby. It’s time to have a bath and get dressed.” Caroline kissed her daughter’s forehead.

“Yes, mommy! I want to look cute.” Lizzie said.

“You look cu-“

“Cute in everything I know, but I want to cause a good impression.” The child finished her mother’s sentence.

“Your while your sister takes her medicine you’re going to have a bath. Come on, Lizzie.” Her mother stood up.

“Yes! But mommy… Can you wash my hair? The shampoo always gets in my eyes and it hurts.” Lizzie shyly asked.

“Of course, let’s go.” Caroline said stretching her hand so her daughter could grab it.

“Yup! I’ll be good but just for you because I love you.” The youngest child walked with her mother to the bathroom.

“I love you more.” Caroline honestly replied.

Four hours later, everyone was dressed elegantly. Caroline was wearing a knee length navy blue dress with white high heels, Hayley was wearing a lavender purple flower dress with black high heels, Katherine was wearing a beautiful brown dress that matches her beautiful eye colour, and she wore black high heels. The three women looked stunning. Stefan wore an expensive grey suit with a white shirt. He looked very handsome. Liz wore an elegant feminine suit. Finally, the twins wore white matching dresses with grey stockings and white shoes. The only difference was the fact that Hope’s ribbon of her dress was pink and her dress details were pink too, while Lizzie’s were sky blue. Both girls had an adorable hairstyle. Hope had a single braid while Lizzie had two tied by blue ribbons matching her dress.

“Whoa, mommy you look so beautiful” Lizzie said walking to her mom.

“You girls look so adorable! Let me take a picture.” Hayley said taking a picture with her IPhone.

“You look super beautiful auntie Hayley, you too auntie Kat I’m sure Elijah will be shocked to see you looking this beautiful.” Hope said.

“You look so handsome Uncle Stefan.” The blonde haired girl said staring at her uncle.

“You girls look beautiful.” Stefan smiled.

“Of course we do! Aunt Kat did our hairstyles.” The twins smirked.

“Girls go and grab your things. We’re leaving now.” Caroline said.

“Yup!”  Both girls ran to their bedroom.

“You sure you’re ready?” Katherine whispered.

“I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. Let’s just get this stupid day over with.” Caroline muttered.

“Mommy! We’re ready.” Each twin walked with a backpack. Lizzie’s backpack was a Vans galaxy themed one and Hope’s was a pastel rainbow one.

“Who wants to go in my car?” Stefan asked.

“ME!” Both twins shouted.

“Care, Hayley and I will take the girls. We’ll see you there.” Stefan said leaving the house with Hayley and the twins.

“Let’s go.” Kat said.

The Mikaelson Mansion, Mystic Falls:

Klaus was alone in his art room thinking about his life decisions. Caroline and the girls will be there at any moment now and he was very nervous. He knows Caroline won’t ever forgive him but he still wanted a chance to meet his children and being a part of their lives.

“Isn’t too early to be already drinking Niklaus?” A womanly voice replied.

“It’s only one glass of bourbon, mother.” Klaus rolled his eyes.

“Is this true? Are those children yours?” Esther asked.

“Yes…” Klaus smiled sadly.

“How could you hid the fact you had twins!? For God’s sake, I was unaware of their existence for over a decade! How could you hide them from us!” The blonde woman screamed at her son.

“BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW IT MYSELF!” He screamed at his mother who didn’t meet his gaze.

“Are you sure those girls are yours Niklaus? What if Caroline only uses them to trick us for money?” The eldest Mikaelson said.

Klaus let out a sarcastic laugh. “I can assure you Caroline has no interest in my money. In fact she wants me to be as far away from her as possible.”

“Well, if you’re those girls father, her feelings won’t matter you have a right.”

“Her feelings matter to me.” Klaus took another sip of his bourbon.

“If she doesn’t let us see those girls we just sue her for custody, she is just a single mother and we have power. It’s going to be easy to get those girls.” Esther said rubbing her hand in her son’s shoulder as in act of comfort.

“You try to take my daughters away from their mother and I’ll end you mother.” Klaus angrily snarled.

Esther stared at her son shocked at her son’s threat. She knew she failed as a mother especially to Niklaus but he never threatened her before. And she didn’t like her son’s behaviour, not at the slightest.

The Mikaelson Mansion, London twenty years ago:

Klaus just finished his newest drawing of his sketchbook he drew a horse. He spend three hours drawing him. When he heard his father came back home he hid his notebook and went to see his little sister Rebekah, who was hiding under her bed.

“Bekah, why are you hiding in there?” Klaus said crawling under her bed.

“I’m scared Nik, they always scream. I want to leave this house. Father is evil, he hurts mother and he hurts you. I-I’m scared he might kill you.” The eight year old silently cried hugging her big brother.

Klaus kissed her sister’s forehead and wrapped his arms around her.

“Beks, everything is going to be alright. You don’t have to worry about me. I am not scared, nothing scares me.” The eleven year old acted brave to protect his little sister when in fact he was terrified.

“Nik, why don’t we just ran away from them? You, Kol, Henrik and me. We could go to visit Finn in collage.” Bekah hugged her brother afraid of what might happen to him as long as their father was there.

“You know we can’t Bekah. But I promise you I’ll always protect you from bad people. No one will ever hurt you Bekah. Always and Forever.” Niklaus kissed her sister’s forehead.

“BOY! WHERE ARE YOU, STUPID BASTARD!?” An angry voice said.

“Nik, Nik please don’t go. Hide under the bed with me! Nik don’t leave me.” Bekah cried harder not letting her big brother go.

“It’ll be worse if I don’t go. I have to protect you.” Klaus kissed her forehead before pulling away from her.

“No! No! NO! Please Nik!” Bekah begged.

“Rebekah lock the door and don’t let anyone but Kol in. Understood?” Klaus said.

“Ye-Yes, alright. I love you Niklaus” Bekah wiped out her tears.

“I love you too. Always and forever.”

“Always and forever.”

An hour later:

Mikael was sleeping in his bed passed out from the amount of alcohol he consumed today. He beat Klaus until he almost lost his consciousness. He broke Klaus’ nose, lip and he beat him with his belt in his little until he bleed. Klaus tried to be strong and not to cry, but the pain was unbearable and Mikael seemed happy every time he shed a tear.

“Why you don’t protect me, mother?” Her son whined when her mother cleaned one of his many cuts.

“You know I can’t Niklaus.” Esther cried as much as she loved her son she couldn’t leave her husband.

“It’s not my fault, you’re the one who cheated on him. I didn’t asked to be in this world. I may not be his son but I am yours. Why you let him hurt me? Why don’t you love me mother?” Klaus cried.

“I do love you, you’re my son.” Esther caressed her son’s head.

“No you don’t, you never did. When I have a child, I will love him or her and I will protect her. No one will hurt her and I won’t ever lay a finger on my future children.” Klaus promised.

The Mikaelson Mansion, Mystic Falls:

“Do you really think I would ever let a child under your care? Why? So they can get abused for years and the only fucking thing you do is stare at them while they’re get abused.” Klaus spat.

“Watch your tone Niklaus! You can judge me! I tried to be the best mother I could.”

“And you failed miserably. Now get this mother because I will only say this once. If I see you threating Caroline or try to scheme something against her. I will ruin you.”

“Niklaus, our guests have arrived.” Elijah entered his studio interrupted the conversation before it took a turn to the worse.

“Remember what I’ve said mother.” Klaus walked away excited to see his daughters again.

He walked as fast as he could and when he went outside his mansion he saw his ex-girlfriend looking as gorgeous as ever while his children looked adorable. Kol, Finn, Elijah, Freya and Bekah were all beside him. Once the twins saw all the Mikaelsons they immediately jumped to his brother’s arms. Klaus had to admit seeing his children choosing Kol before him it hurt.

“Kol!” Lizzie jumped to his arms and he lift her in the air making her laugh.

“Aren’t you a gorgeous sweetheart?” Kol kissed her forehead.

“You look very handsome too. Put me down please.” Lizzie whispered to him.

“Of course, little devil.” Once he put her down the child ran away to her mom’s side.

“Hello, love. I’m glad you came.” Klaus smiled at Caroline who rolled her eyes.

“Nikki! Did our guests arrived?” Camille screamed walking towards him.

“No, we’re just waiting here outside when it’s freezing for the hell of it.” Rebekah sarcastically replied.

“Please, fell free to come inside. It’s freezing here.” Elijah politely said to everyone but staring at Katherine.

Once they were inside Hope was shaking staring at Klaus shyly. She wasn’t shaking because she was sick she was trembling but because she was very nervous. What if Klaus doesn’t like my drawings? The little girl thought.

“Hope, are you alright?” Lizzie whispered.

“Aha, ye-yes. Lizzie I am so nervous, what if he doesn’t like them?” Hope whispered back.

“Then he is an idiot.” Lizzie said.

“What are you two whispering about?” Camille tried to be as kind as she could.

“That’s none of your business.” Lizzie spat.

“Lizzie, remember what we talked about?” Caroline said.

The young child rolled her eyes at her mother. “Sorry Camille, you look so beautiful today. It’s good to see you again Klaus.” Lizzie gave them her most believable fake smile showing her cute dimples to everyone.

“Thank you, it’s a very expensive dress. Nikki bought it for me.” Camille said.

“It’s good to see you again too, little one.” Klaus gave her a small smile.

“There mom! I lied for you. Can I go now to play with Kol and Henrik?” The child honestly said making everyone but Camille and Caroline laugh.

“Sure come here, little devil.” Kol said smiling at her.

“Don’t be scared I’m sure Klaus will love it!” Lizzie whispered one last time before running away with Kol leaving her backpack on the floor and Stefan pick it up.

“Hello…” Hope said hiding behind her mother.

“Hello, there. You look beautiful.” Klaus kneeled to be at his daughter’s level.

“Thank you. You look very handsome as well. All of you look very stunning.” Hope said hugging her mother and hiding her face in Caroline’s dress.

“I thought you would like to show me your drawings.” Klaus said.

“Ye-yes…But I don’t think they are good enough.” Hope pouted.

“Why don’t you let me be de judge of that?” The artist smiled.

“O-okay. I would like show them you just to you.” The little girl blushed.

“Very well. I would like to show my art studio if that’s okay for your mother of course.” Klaus gave Caroline his adorable face. Lizzie uses the same smile when she wants to get away with something.

“Go on baby. I’m sure he will love every single drawing.” Caroline smiled at Hope.

“Okay! Let’s go Klaus!” Hope grabbed his right arm with her little hands.

“Wait! Why are you going to show her the studio? You don’t even let me enter the room!” Camille said offended.

“Because only the greatest artists are allowed. Go and talk to my family Camille.” The dirty blonde haired man smirked at his daughter who smirked back.

Both father and daughter left the room leaving all the adults alone. Stefan sat down on one of the couches, Caroline and Katherine sat beside him. The Mikaelson siblings sat on another couch while Camille sat alone.

“How old are you Caroline?” Camille asked.

“Twenty-eight. Why?” The youngest Forbes asked.

“Because she is insufferable.” Bekah muttered.

“So you had those kids when you were just seventeen.” Camille rudely said.

“And the whole point of this entire conversation is?” Caroline rolled her eyes annoyed at that woman.

“I’m just impressed. Did you managed to at finish high school?”

“Just because I had my children when I was seventeen doesn’t mean I didn’t study. For your information, I have a PhD in business management.” The youngest blonde angrily spat.

“Forgive her, Miss Forbes. I’m glad you came.” Elijah kindly said.

“Thanks for inviting us, Elijah.” Caroline smiled at him.

“Stefan, it’s been a while. How is your life?” Rebekah asked.

“I became a lawyer.” He explained proud of himself.

An hour and half later everyone was in the dining room, waiting for the food. Since Hope came back from her talk with Klaus, she was happy. She ran excited saying how much Klaus liked her paintings she was very proud of her achievement. She was even happier when her favourite artist said he would teach her some techniques to improve her art skills. She just couldn’t wait.

“Are you happy you’re going to have a baby Sage?” Lizzie innocently asked.

“Yes, this time we will have a girl. I can’t wait to meet her.” The red haired woman smiled to the sweet child.

“My cousin Vicky is small baby she is eight months old! She can crawl!” Lizzie explained to Sage.

“That sounds so incredible. Did you crawl when you were little Lizzie?”

“Yes! My aunt Hayley always tells me a story. When Hope and I were one year old, we crawled a lot. And since my mommy was in college and auntie Hayley was working aunt Kat had to watch over us. She got distracted and we crawled around the house she found Hope but she couldn’t find me. She looked for me for almost an hour and she didn’t find me. Auntie Kat was so scared she started to cry looking for me.” Lizzie explained.

“You were one, only one. I was just nineteen I didn’t thought babies could crawl that fast.” Katherine replied.

“At the end I fell asleep under the blanket in our big couch. I almost gave aunt Kat an anxiety attack.” Lizzie laughed.

“I would pay to see that.” Kol laughed.

“One year old kids walk, they don’t crawl.” Camille said.

“We only crawled we started to walk when we turned two! Tell her mommy.” The little blonde said offended.

“It’s true.” Caroline confirmed.

“So tell me little devils, what will you do this Christmas?” Kol asked trying to stop the argument before it even started.

“We will help mom bake cookies then we decorated the Christmas tree! And we go and do snowmen in the snow! It’s so awesome Kol! And then we snuggle and we watch movies together drinking hot chocolate all of us together.” Hope happily explained.

“That’s sound very fun! Would you mind if I join?” Kol said.

“You are super welcome cause we like you a lot Kol. Henrik you can come too! Everyone can! Not you Camille.” Lizzie said.

“Why don’t you like me? It’s not fair you’re kind to everyone but me!” Camille said tired of those kids attitude.

“You called me stupid.” The child simply said.

“Then don’t act as if you were one!” Camille spat.

“Shut up, Camille. Now.” Klaus spat back making her to stop talking instantly.

“I know you made me act as if I liked her just to be polite but mommy she makes it so hard.” The child loudly said.

“I apologize for her behaviour.” Klaus said to Caroline who only nodded her head but didn’t reply him.

“Could you tell us any more happy memories with your aunt Katerina?” Elijah smiled.

“Aunt Kat I think he wants to be your boyfriend. I like him for you, he is well dressed and he is polite. And he is very handsome.” Hope said to her aunt making both Elijah and Katherine blush.

"I have one Lijah! I once made the deal of a lifetime! My aunt Kat gave me her cool math problems! Every evening when my mommy wasn't around! I had to do her homework and it was awesome cause my aunt bought me candy and sweets and whatever I wanted as long as my mom didn’t find out, it was a secret. But when mom found out and she grounded aunt Kat." Lizzie explained making Sage, Rebekah and Kol laugh while Elijah held his laughter.

“Why it doesn’t surprise me it’s you the one who uses my own… Friend to do your job.” Klaus rolled his eyes at Katherine who only smirked at him.

“Yes, but also don’t forget who’s the one who saw your ‘friends’ born, their first steps, their first day of school… While you missed every single memory. And it doesn’t matter how much money you have because you’ll never be able to experience those moments.” Katherine smirked at his sad but furious face.

“Katherine!” Caroline muttered.

“I have more secrets about auntie Kat.” Lizzie said.

“Wait Lizzie, if we tell them our secrets, then they won’t be secrets anymore. We like to keep secrets right?” Kat said trying to shout her niece before she says something that could possibly shame her.

“Right…” The youngest blonde said.

“Klaus said my drawings are amazing! He said I am artist!” Hope happily said and Lizzie clapped her little hands.

“See dummy I told you he would love them!” Lizzie congratulated her.

“Klaus can I ask you something?” Lizzie asked.

“Go on, little one.” Klaus smiled.

“Will you die of a drug overdose?” The child asked making more than one person spit their drinks.

“Elizabeth Katherine Forbes what kind of question is that!” Caroline screamed at her daughter.

“Don’t raise your voice at me!” Lizzie pouted.

“It’s okay, love.” Klaus tried to stop Caroline from scolding their child.

“Stop calling her love. She is not your love! I AM!” Camille jealously said.

“No, it’s not okay. Apologize.” Caroline said to her daughter.

“No. I haven’t asked nothing bad!” Lizzie stubbornly said crossing her little arms.

“Elizabeth, I won’t ask you again.” Her mother coldly asked.

“Mommy stop it! I don’t like it when you talk to me like that.” The youngest child pouted.

“And I don’t like it when you are disrespectful. You promised me you would be good!” Caroline scolded her.

“I am being good! I am only asking him a question! I’ve heard auntie Kat and Hayley saying that it was incredible Klaus didn’t die from an STD nor a drug overdose!” The child angrily said.

“ELIZABETH.” Her mother said scaring the child.

“I am sorry Klaus, I didn’t meant it. Where is the bathroom?” Lizzie stared at the floor sad.

“Third door to the left, sweetie.” Freya politely said.

Lizzie ran away as fast as she could not looking back, her mother screamed at her for asking a question she didn’t even understand. Once she knew she was alone the child started to cry.

“You shouldn’t have screamed at Lizzie! She must be crying now.” Hope said upset because her sister was probably crying.

“Eat lunch Hope.” Caroline shortly replied.

“That wasn’t necessary, love.” Klaus defended Lizzie.

“It was, otherwise she would keep being disrespectful.” The blonde haired woman replied once again.

After ten minutes, Caroline started to worry when she saw no signs of Lizzie. The twenty-eight year old excused herself for a moment and she went looking for her youngest daughter. As she expected her daughter wasn’t in the bathroom.

“Lizzie?” Caroline asked but no one replied. Fortunately, she heard her daughter’s soft sniffs coming from one of the doors but the door was locked.

“Lizzie, I’m sorry. I didn’t meant to scare you. Could you please open the door so we can talk?” Caroline softly said.

“NO!” The child stubbornly said.

“Please baby.” The woman begged.

“You will only scream at me.” Lizzie whispered.

“She won’t, little one.” Another voice said.

“Klaus?” Both mother and daughter said at the same time.

“The one and only. Could you please open the door?” Klaus begged.

“Only if my mom promise me to not ground me.” Lizzie whispered.

“I promise.”

Once the child opened the door, her parents saw her red eyes and she was shaking upset. Caroline just stared at her child before hugging her. Lizzie at the begging didn’t retuned the hug but eventually she wrapped her little arms around her mother.

“I don’t know what overdose mean mommy. I even asked I was polite. But you screamed at me.” The child cried harder.

“I’m so sorry baby. But you shouldn’t ask questions you don’t fully understand. That was a very offensive thing to say.” Caroline said kissing her daughter’s cheek.

“It’s totally fine Caroline. Sweetheart, come here I would like to show you something. If your mother let me.” Klaus said staring Caroline’s big blue eyes.

Lizzie stared at her mother asking for permission, Caroline nodded her head making Klaus smile.

“I would like to show my studio, come with me Caroline. Please only ten minutes.” Klaus begged.

“Alright. Just ten minutes.”

Klaus’ art studio:

“Whoa! Did you drew all of those paintings?” The child said completely impressed.

“Yes, I always loved to draw. It was distraction.” Klaus explained.

“Why you needed a distraction for? I can’t see some of the paintings.” The child innocently asked.

“Come here sweetheart.” Klaus said lifting his youngest daughter for the first time. He had his left arm protectively around his daughter.

“Klaus, who is he?” The little girl asked staring at the painting that says ‘Henrik Mikaelson’.

“He was my brother, he passed away when he was only thirteen.” Klaus blinked fast to make sure his tears didn’t fall.

“Don’t be sad, you have lots of siblings.” Lizzie tried to cheer him up.

“I know…” The Mikaelson whispered.

Klaus kept explaining her stories about his paintings and his adventures. Lizzie started to feel tired and she was very comfortable in Klaus’ arms so she rested her little head on his neck and five minutes later, she fell asleep with her little arms around his neck.

“She’s sleeping, I think it’s time to go home.” Caroline whispered.

“Wait, love.”

“Stop, calling me love.” Caroline spat.

“Caroline I wanted to apologize. About what I said yesterday. I would never take them away from you. You raised two amazing children and I would never keep them away from you.” Klaus said.

“The damage is already done, Klaus.” Caroline said walking away.

“Please, just give a chance, that’s all I want.” Klaus begged.

“Remember when you asked me to kill them? You think just because you’re kind one day that will make you a father?” Caroline said loudly.

“I fucked up okay, I fucked up really bad! And I know I did. I can’t sleep, I can’t think… All I want is a chance nothing more Caroline. All I want is to spend more time with you and our daughters.”

“Klau-“ Before she could finish the door flew open and a furious Camille walked towards him.

“OUR daughters? What the hell do you mean!” Camille screamed at him.

“Lower your voice and get lost.” Klaus spat.

“Sure so you can spend more time with this whore and her children, who by the way are yours! That’s why you are so interested in them! They are your daughters!” Camille accused her fiancé.

“Mommy? What is she talking about? Is Klaus my dad?” Lizzie said staring at Caroline and Klaus who paled instantly.

Sorry, it took me this long to update! I was quite sick and quite busy. But I wrote the longest chapter ever just to make it up for it. Thanks for your patience. Well… without further ado here’s Chapter five. 

Summary: Klaus and Caroline were together in high school. However, when they finally slept together he completely ignored her. A few months after she finds out she is pregnant and he tells her to abort the child. What will happen when they meet again twelve years later? Will Caroline ever forgive him?

Chapter Five:

“Mommy? What is she talking about? Is Klaus my dad?” Lizzie said staring at Caroline and Klaus who paled instantly.

“Put me down, Klaus. NOW!” The little girl screamed at him hitting his chest with her little fists.

Once Klaus put his daughter down the young child stared angrily at him and Camille. She kicked him with her small legs before running towards her mother expecting her to answer the question.

“I- Well- He…” Caroline started to ramble not knowing what to say without hurting her youngest daughter’s feelings.

“Yes, I am your father.” Klaus nervously said.

“Klaus!” Caroline angrily spat.

“Come on, love. Do you really think they wouldn’t eventually find out?” The dirty blonde haired man sarcastically replied.

“I want to go home, I don’t like this place.” Lizzie whispered.

“Wait Lizzie, let me explain…” Klaus started.

“I don’t want you to explain me anything! I HATE YOU! I hate Camille! I hate this place! I hate every single Mikaelson! I WANT TO GO HOME NOW!” The youngest child screamed.

Hearing his daughter’s words shocked him, he expected her to be angry and upset but not to the point to actually hate him. He was very hurt by her harsh words, this was more a painful blow than any beating Mikael ever gave to him. However, he acted as if it didn’t affect him though his eyes started watering.

“Aren’t you going to say anything mom? You always say I should never ever lie, that we don’t have secrets between us and you had the biggest one! LIAR!” The youngest child kept screaming.

“Stop being a brat, you’re lucky a man like my fiancé is your father, biologically speaking of course.” Camille complained.

“Stop being a bitch then. That’s right I know some bad words too.” The eleven year old rudely replied.

“Elizabeth Katherine Forbes! Language!” Her mother scolded her.

“NO! You don’t get to use my full name as if I did something wrong!” The child screamed at her mother.

“Calm down, little one.” Klaus said.

“Don’t you dare to tell me what to do! Only my mom and my aunts and uncle Stefan can do that and you failed human being are none of them. So back off.” The child walked towards him just to kick him once again but her mother was faster and she grabbed her by her shoulders so she wouldn’t try to attack Klaus again.

“Lizzie listen-“ Klaus started.

“It’s Elizabeth for you. And no thanks I don’t care about your dumb excuses. I know who you are and what you did to my mom.” Lizzie darkly said staring at Klaus.

“How could you possibly known that? Is that what you’ve done for the last eleven years Caroline? Brainwashing my kids?” Klaus attacked Caroline with his harsh words.

“I brainwashed them? Are you freaking kidding me! As if I needed to brainwash them to make them see who you really are.” Caroline spat at him.

“Don’t you dare to accuse my mom of anything! She is the best mother ever, so watch it Klaus. And once I tell Hope she’ll hate you too.” The youngest blonde threatened her father.

“I know you think I am an awf-“ Klaus started once again.

“It’s not that I think it’s that I know you are. You are a horrible despicable human being. You don’t deserve me or Hope and even less my mom. She is mine and mine only and I promise you this I will make sure you never get close to her ever again.” Lizzie spat.

Before Klaus could reply everyone came inside his studio because they heard Lizzie’s distant screams. Hayley, Katherine, Liz and Stefan were immediately by Caroline’s side while all the Mikaelsons were behind their brother.

“Lizzie why are you screaming so much? Lizzie?” Hope innocently asked.

“It’s simple I want to go home…” Lizzie knew how sensitive her sister was and she wanted to tell her when they were at home so she could cry as much as she wanted without being ashamed. Both Klaus and Camille looked surprised at this.

“You were screaming you hate everyone whose last name is Mikaelson. Lizzie don’t lie and tell me the truth, you can’t lie to me! I am your twin.” Hope said but Lizzie just stared at the floor.

“Fine but I am warning you, you’ll hate him. Do you remember when we talked about how our dad should be?” The youngest child started.

“Yeah, you wanted him to be a mathematician and an astronaut.” Hope replied.

“Okay I just found out he isn’t. He is a coward that no one will ever love. And I don’t want you to like him anymore. So we are leaving this place.” Lizzie walked towards her sister and grabbed her hand.

“Wait… It’s one of them!” Hope excitedly said. After eleven years, she was going to know who he was.

“Yeah, I’m warning you once again, of all the Mikaelsons we got the worst one.” Lizzie warned and Katherine laughed.

“What? She is absolutely right.” Katherine sided with her niece.

“Is it Elijah!?” Hope asked.

“No, Hope if I could choose I would obviously choose him as our dad. Or maybe Finn I like him. I told you, we got the despicable one. The one no one would ever love cause guess what. He is a bastard in every sense of the word. Right Niklaus?” Everyone was shocked when the innocent looking child called him that.

“No, no, no! NOT HIM! Lizzie don’t lie! Just because you don’t like him doesn’t mean you have to invent such an ugly lie.” Hope said not believing her little sister.

“I. DO. NOT. LIE. Just ask mom if you don’t believe me.” Lizzie rolled her eyes annoyed.

“Is this true mom?” The honey haired child turned around to stare at her mother who just lightly nodded, Hope gasped shocked, she wasn’t expecting what Lizzie said to be the truth.

“I don’t want to be here anymore. I want to go mom. NOW!” Hope started to cry but she wiped out her tears as fast as she could.

“Don’t cry Hope. I know you liked him and his art but he is a bad person. Besides, we didn’t need him when we were babies so why would we need him now?” Lizzie said trying to cheer her sister.

“Mom you’ve always known and you didn’t told us… How could you?” Hope stared angrily at her mom who looked as if she was about to cry.

“Come on girls, let’s go home.” Katherine said holding Hope’s hand.

“No, I am not going until my mom walks away with me.” Lizzie stubbornly said.

“Why don’t we all we try to calm down?” Elijah tried to calm everyone especially the children.

“I worked so hard on my drawings just to make you proud. I barely slept, I am sick and I have fever. But I stood strong just so you can see my paintings because I admire you. And now I found out you are the bad person who abandoned me. I-i-l I don’t want to see you ever again. You broke my heart Klaus. I trusted you I believed in you. You were my hero. Now you are just the villain.” The eldest twin cried staring at her father.

“Hope.” Klaus whispered walking towards her but before he could reach her, Lizzie stood in front of her sister pointing at him with her little pointy finger.

“Now listen up, Niklaus because I will only say this once. Stay away from us, you are nothing but an utterly and disposable idiot. But I have one last question…” The child stared at her father for only a second before staring at the floor.

Klaus swallowed hard scratching his neck with her left hand. “Tell me, sweetheart.”

“Don’t call me sweetheart only Jackson, Aiden and Josh can call me sweetheart and you are not any of them.” The child stared at him with all her anger.

“Forgive me, little one.” The troubled artist replied.

“Seriously? I think it’s fairly obvious I won’t ever forgive you. However, I am curious Niklaus… Did you win that stupid bet you had with Damon Salvatore? Oh yes, that’s right you bloody moron. I know!” The blonde child accused him.

Caroline’s eyes winded in shock when she heard her child talking about the bet Klaus and Damon had about her all those years ago. She swore her children would never find out. However if Lizzie knew that would mean Hope would probably know too. “How do you know about that? Who told you about that Lizzie?”

“No one.” The little blonde crossed her arms.

“Katherine!” Caroline muttered.

“HEY! Just because I hate half of these people doesn’t mean I would tell my little niece that. Truth I hate him as much as I dislike Rebekah but I wouldn’t ever make my niece suffer just for my personal vendetta against them. I was going to wait until they were like fifteen so we can bitch about them together. You know gossip time with aunt Kat and all of that.” Katherine defended herself.

“What bet?” Kol and Hope asked at the same time.

“Nothing Hope, don’t worry about it. Aren’t you going to answer me? No of course not, aunt Kat is right men are so weak. Not you uncle Stefan you are epic and I love you.” Lizzie walked towards Stefan and hugged him.

“You are too young to understand that, little one. That’s just between your mother and I.” Klaus said.

“Seriously? Excuse me. I am smarter than you and Camille together.” The child smirked at him with superiority.

“You are nothing but the biggest spoiled brat I’ve ever meet.” Camille spat at the child who for a second looked at her mother scared.

“Camille, not now.” Klaus warned his fiancé.

“I dare you to tell me that to my face, sweetheart.” Caroline threated Camille but she kept a neutral tone.

“No mom, she is right. I am nothing but a child. Unfortunately, for you I am a gifted child. My aunt Kat and I study psychology when we are bored and I learn fast. Therefore, I know why you don’t like me. It’s not as if I was offended either because I can’t stand you. Me and auntie Hayley made a bet to see which Mikaelson woman hits you first. I said Sage because she is awesome, Bekah is our second choice.”

“Yes, we like you a lot Sage.” Hope confirmed making the pregnant woman smile.

“And I love spending time with both of you and Henrik loves spending time with you two, especially with you Lizzie.” Sage sweetly replied.

“Your child doesn’t talk. How can you possibly know? And as hateable this brat is, at least she talks. Even though I wished she was mute.” Camille whispered but everyone heard her.

“That’s it.” Caroline said walking towards Camille but Stefan grabbed her by her hips pulling her to him to make sure she didn’t lose her control in front of her children.

“I pity you. I think that we both know if my mom told Klaus she wants to be his girlfriend again, he would leave you without even thinking twice. Klaus, you spend so much time and effort looking for someone who looks just like a bad copy of my mom. You are an evil clone, you are very old, evil, much uglier because my mom is the most gorgeous woman in this universe. You are jealous.” Lizzie raised her eyebrow and smirked mischievously at her enemy.

“Okay that’s enough damage your words caused today Lizzie. Come on girls, time to go.” Stefan said holding Hope’s hand because she wanted to leave this place immediately.

“I’m not leaving without my mom. That’s it uncle Stef you can’t change my mind.” Lizzie crossed her hands once again. However, Stefan just ignored her, he pulled his left arm around her little hips, he held her with just one hand and he walked towards the door.

 “NO! Put me down! I can’t leave my mom with that evil monster! He will hurt her and she’ll be sad! I have to protect her!” Lizzie tried to break free from her uncle’s grip but she wasn’t strong enough.

“Don’t worry about me I’ll be there in a few minutes, okay?” Caroline tried to calm her daughter.

“I swear to god Klaus if you make my mom cry, I’ll end you. DO YOU HEAR ME? DO YOU?” The eleven year old screamed furiously while her uncle walked away.

“Lizzie mom will be fine just calm down. I’m so sad.” Hope started to cry once they were in the car.

Seeing her sweet sister so sad made Lizzie very angry but she knew her anger wouldn’t help her now so she did what her mom taught her. She moved right next to her sister and she hugged her kissing her cheeks.

“It’s okay Hope. We only need mom, and uncle Stefan is like our dad so we don’t need Klaus.”

“But Lizzie he was my hero! I-I thought he was good. But he is evil, Lizzie our own dad doesn’t love us. Am I not good enough to have a dad?” The honey haired girl rested her forehead against her little sister’s shoulder.

“I know how much you admired him, Hope. But you don’t have to worry because you’ll be a thousand times better than he’ll ever be. Hope we are good enough to do anything we want… We are not the problem It’s him. Please don’t cry.” The blonde child rested her head against her sister’s looking for comfort.

“Lizzie I want you to promise me something.” Hope stared at her sister.

“Yes, of course.”

“Whatever happens we will stick together. Always together.” Hope kissed her fingers before interlacing her fingers with Lizzie’s like their aunt Hayley taught them.

“I promise I’ll always be your side. Always together.” Lizzie smiled.

“Always and forever.” Hope finished.

“Always and forever?” The youngest child questioned.

“Yeah, I heard Kol… Well I assume we have to call him uncle Kol now. The thing is he and Bekah said that and I thought it sounds so epic.” Hope explained.

“Yeah… It kinda does, I like it. Always and forever you and me and mom.” Lizzie replied.

“Well obviously mom’s included in this. But what do we do now? Will our uncles and aunts want to spend time with us? Esther is a scary lady.”

“Yes, I don’t like it when she stares at me. She makes me feel cold and uncomfortable but other than that she is nice, I think.”

“Lizzie I don’t think I want to see Klaus ever again.” Hope whispered wrapping her arms around her sister’s neck while Lizzie was lightly touching her sister’s shoulders.

“I don’t think we have to worry about that. He is a coward, he isn’t going to stick around for long. But even if he does I don’t think I can forgive him. He’s done too much to mom, and I can’t ignore that.” Lizzie stared at the window of her uncle’s car.

“Lizzie, do you know something about him I don’t?” Hope asked suspiciously.

“Yes… But it doesn’t matter. I’ll tell you tomorrow maybe. Kay?”

“Kay. I love you Lizzie.” Hope said pressing sweet kisses to her sister’s neck and left cheek.

“I love you too, Hope. You’ll always be my favourite person in the world.” Lizzie kissed her sister’s forehead.

“You are my ultimate best friend and sister, Lizzie.”

“You are mine too, Hope.”

“Girls we will wait here for your mom, your aunts and your grandma to come outside.” Stefan said entering the car.

“I thought mom grounded you for smoking. You stink.” Hope said.

“You know your lungs turn black and then you die? Aunt Hayley taught me about drugs and their side effects. Smoking is dangerous, uncle Stef.” Lizzie scolded her uncle as if he was a child.

“You girls are absolutely right. Smoking is super bad which is why you girls will never do it.”

“We won’t.” They said at the exact same time.

“Good. What are our plans tonight? Snuggle and watch some Scooby doo movies?” Stefan smiled at them.

“Absolutely but first we need to talk to mom…” Lizzie started.

“Lizzie don’t be too harsh on your mom.” Stefan said because he know how insensitive how his niece can be. He knows she doesn’t do it on purpose but sometimes her words can be very harsh.

“I know sometimes I say things that can offend adults and kids. But I would never say anything that could hurt my mom. You wound me Stefan Salvatore.” Lizzie pressed her little hand across her heart and sighed dramatically.

“We would never say anything to hurt mom on purpose. What kind of accusation is that?” Hope stared at her uncle.

“You used the word accusation perfectly Hope! Good job, you’re the best!” The twins clapped their hands together doing a ‘high five’.

“Course I did, you gave a page full of words and you made me learn them.” Hope smiled.

“Yes, yes I did. I teach you more words so you can be even smarter than what you already are!” Lizzie proudly said.

“You two are so adorable. But I am serious I don’t want either of you to be harsh on your mother. Understood?” Stefan repeated.

“I don’t understand we don’t insult anyone much less our mommy.” Lizzie spat. She hated when people treat her as if she was child.

“I do understand it uncle Stef. But she has lots of explaining to do.” Hope replied.

“Lizzie, remember last month when you wished death upon me because I didn’t bought you a piano… Did you mean that?” Stefan tried to make his niece to see his point.

“NO, not entirely. But you pissed me off and when I’m angry I say things I don’t actually mean…” Lizzie lowly said with her little voice full of regret.

“I know you didn’t meant it. Sometimes we say things we don’t actually mean. But this time you’re mom doesn’t need any sort of bashing coming from either of you, okay?”

“Okay.” Both of them replied.

“Good. Now let’s play a game while we wait for the girls.” Stefan tried to distract the twins, even if it was just for a little while.

Inside the Mikaelson Mansion:

After Stefan took the twins away, Klaus walked towards Caroline and when they were one-step away, he started to blame her because he thought his ex-girlfriend was actually poisoning her children against him.

“This is all your fault! You make them hate me!” Klaus screamed at his ex while she laughed sarcastically furious at him.

“My fault? This is my fault? Are you fucking kidding me!” When Caroline said that everyone stared at her shocked not expecting her reaction. She was Caroline Forbes, after all.

“YES! Everything was going on perfectly okay. Even Elizabeth liked me! And now she is basically wishing my death!” He raised his voice even louder.

“Niklaus calm down.” Elijah said making sure there was enough distance between his brother and Miss Forbes.

“You are very stupid if you thought she liked you, Klausy. Lizzie knew how much Hope admires you… Oh sorry, my bad. I meant how much she admired you because I think she can’t even look at you right now. Anyway knowing how much Lizzie loves her sister and how important you were for Hope… She acted as if she liked you.” Katherine smirked mischievously at her enemy.

“Shut up Katherine.” Bekah interrupted.

“Why? Because my words hurt? Good, because he deserves every single blow that comes to him.” Katherine venomously said.

“You don’t know what we’ve been through you can’t judge us Katherine.” The blonde haired Mikaelson spat.

“Oh come on, the story of how Mikael was bad with all of you especially him because he is the bastard is not a blank check to be a son of a bitch.” The brunette spat.

“Watch your mouth you insolent girl! You’re in my house and as long as you’re inside these walls you will respect my family.” Esther replied angrily at the eldest gilbert twin.

“My brother is a good man, so fuck off Katherine.” Rebekah defended him.

Hearing those words made Caroline laugh. She couldn’t understand how could Klaus and his family always made him look like a poor innocent victim when he was actually a predator.

“Your brother is the worst person I’ve ever meet.” Caroline stared directly at Klaus who was shocked and she could actually see a glimmer of remorse and pain before he attacked her again with his words.

“I might be bad but love don’t forget I’m their father.” He spat.

“How can you be so sure? I mean she was a cheerleader and they have quite a reputation.” Camille asked but Klaus only rolled his eyes annoyed at her.

“Hey!” Katherine and Bekah replied at the same time.

“For once I agree with Camille. We should do a DNA test on those girls. Maybe she is just after the money like I told you before, Niklaus.” Esther said.

Caroline just rolled her eyes annoyed at Esther. Since the first moment Esther meet her she loved to make her feel as if she wasn’t good enough for her son. The eldest Mikaelson always thought Klaus should marry someone of his class and not someone who didn’t come from a rich house like him.

“I am not going to make my children do that stupid test. Because you know what? I never wanted a single penny that comes from anyone whose last name is Mikaelson… Besides if I didn’t need him when I was seventeen, what makes you think I need the moron of your son now?”

“Esther don’t you even dare to imply my daughter is a gold-digger.” Liz spat.

“I am not implying she is just that…”Esther smirked with superiority.

“Mother please. Respect our guests.” Elijah tried to put order in the room.

“Mother, do shut the hell up.” Klaus said to his mother who stared at sadly at him but didn’t said another word.

“Ouch, that must hurt mommy Klausy.” Katherine sarcastically replied.

“Yes, it does. But I wonder what hurts the most watching your parents die or watching your sister sleeping with your boyfriend?” Esther spat with all her venom and smiled when he saw the pain and rage of the insolent girl’s face.

“MOTHER!” Elijah sternly said.

“I am not going to let my children spend a second in this cursed place.” Caroline interrupted them.

“You don’t get to choose, love.” Klaus could see why she didn’t want their children spending time in this mansion but he was the father and he had his rights.

“You were my best friend, Care. Why you didn’t tell me? I would have helped you.” Kol said hurt. He and Caroline were very close since they moved to Mystic Falls. And when she started to date his brother she spend most of the time with him and Klaus. However, after their break up she left without even saying a goodbye.

“Things were complicated back then Kol.” Caroline started.

“More like this piece of shit threatened my little sister.” Hayley pointed at Klaus.

“I just tried to make your sister see my point of view.” Klaus rudely spat.

“Are you kidding me? You threatened me! Remember when you said and I quote ‘You want that thing to be born? Why? It’s only going to ruin our lives. Just get rid of it.’” The youngest Forbes spat at her ex.

“How the hell you wanted me to stay here in this cursed town? How selfish can you be Caroline?”

“I never asked you to stay here! I told you to leave with me! But you choose to stay with them and Mikael. You literally wanted me to abort my babies because you wanted to prove a point to your father!” Caroline screamed at him.

“He is even worse than I thought he was.” Sage whispered to Finn who nodded his head ashamed of his brother and mother.

“You were bulimic for fucks sake!” The troubled artist screamed.

“And you are a drug addict!” She shot back.

“Not anymore!” The artist defended himself.

“Stop arguing with them, Niklaus it’s not worth it. Just let my lawyer do all the work we can get the twins in less than two months-“ Esther interrupted.

“Over my dead body I’ll let you take my children away from me. Why you want them anyway? Just to let them be abused while you watch just like you did when Mikael hurt Klaus. You never protected him! Look at the monster you created. I’ll be dammed if I let my children spend time with you or Klaus or Camille.” Caroline said.

“Mother I swear to god if you don’t close your fucking mouth-“ Klaus started.

“Niklaus don’t speak to mother like that.” Finn defended his mom.

Ignoring his brother Klaus turned to Caroline once again. “Love, as much as we might argue I promise you one thing I would never take them away from you.”

“I am their grandmother I have my rights. Whatever if you like it or not girl.” The eldest Mikaelson complained.

“They already have one grandmother they don’t need two.” Liz shot back.

“Nikki, they don’t even look like you.” Camille said not actually believing her words, those twins did look a lot like her fiancé, especially Hope.

“They do look like Nik. Hope is the girly version of him, same hair, eyes, smile, and those cute freckles all over her face.” Bekah was dumbfounded when she heard Camille trying to deny the twins.

“Well… Maybe the taller one looks like Nikki but the rude one doesn’t.” Camille rolled her eyes annoyed.

“My daughter is not rude and she does look like Nikki.” Caroline said in a fake sweet tone holding her laugh when she called him Nikki. It was a ridiculous nickname.

“The hell she does, she looks just like you.” Camille shot back.

“For the love of god, don’t you know how genetics work? She might not look like Klaus but that little smirk, that mischievous glint she has in her eyes… That’s all his. However, even if she looks just like Caroline she has none of her mother’s personality. Caroline is sweet and for what I can see, she doesn’t jump into arguments and she tries to evade them as much as she can. However, Lizzie on the other hand is quite a volatile child. She’s spend three hours talking to me and Finn and let me tell you she is a sweet pure child but from the moment she heard you saying a nasty comment about her mother she immediately jumped to her defend her mom. She is volatile, get’s angry at the moment someone says something she doesn’t like, doesn’t like to lose, she also hates apologizing because Lizzie has a lot of pride, she is far too smart for her own good… Come on, doesn’t those traits sound familiar to you, Camille?” Sage spat shocking everyone.

“I don’t want those kids in my home! Nik let’s have twins on our own and ignore those little bastards.”

“That’s it.” Hayley said launching at Camille punching her right in her face.

“HAYLEY! DON’T.” Caroline rushed to her sister’s side trying to pull her away from Camille.

“Take this animal away from me!” Camille protected her face with her hands.

“And those are the people who raised the twins. I am so ashamed once we get full custody of them, we can just say that their mother was a drug addict who sells her body and you my dearest son had to take full reasonability because her mental state wasn’t the appropriate one to raise two innocent angels. Imagine what people would say if they knew the truth.” Esther keep talking.

Before Niklaus could shut her up for the last time, Caroline smirked at Esther. It was at that moment he knew something bad was about to happen.

“You’ve always hated me, from the moment I started to date your son you made sure to make me feel as worthless as possible. I was terrified of the rejection back then, even though you were no one for me, I tried to please you so you could see I actually loved your son… But you always brought me down. However, things have changed I stopped being that teen who looked for acceptation from everyone. I became a mother of two wonderful children and I did it on my own. You might be right, I may not have as much money as you do Esther, but you know what I have you will never have?” Caroline paused. “The unconditional love of my children because unlike you I would die for them. Everything I do is to make them happy and I would never ever let them get abused by a monster no matter how powerful or how rich he is. And if you want to go to the court I have enough evidence to make sure you’ll never get close to my children. Esther if you ever want to stare at the same direction as my children it would have to be with my consent. Because I am their mother and I will fight for my children till the end. So if you want a war I have no problems to bring you down.” Caroline finished and Esther looked terrified. What happened to that weak teenage girl I’ve meet all those years ago. Esther bitterly thought. Meanwhile Klaus smiled melancholy because he was proud Caroline stopped caring about what people thought.

“I couldn’t have said any better. You go girl.” Katherine proudly said.

“For once I agree with Katerina. Farewell, love fair is fair. I will play by your rules. You don’t want my mother and Camille near the twins, I agree both of them are toxic. But I want to be a part of their lives, spending time with them and my siblings have the same rights to spend time with them.”

“I have no problem with that. It was you the one who didn’t want me to tell to them about the girls. They are more than welcome but this classist woman and this psycho stay away from my babies or it’s over. I won’t let you go near them.” She negotiated.

“I want to spend a whole day just the four of us, you choose the day and the place. But I want some time just the four of us.” Klaus said more calmly.

“I’ll think about it.” She half lied. There was no way after all he did she was about to spend a whole day with him.

“Love, we’ve known each other for so long. Do you really think I don’t realize when you lie to me?”­­ The artist amusedly replied.

“Until you prove me you stopped with your nasty habits and your anger issues are under control I won’t spend time with you and my children either. I can’t let them go with you if something bad might happen to them.” The youngest blonde haired Forbes replied.

“I am their father! Nothing wrong is going to happen!” Klaus spat offended. He did many fucked up stuff, but that’s all in the past now he is a better man.

“Are you? Because when I begged you to stay with me and raise them together, you had no problem by telling me to abort and then running away as if nothing ever happened.” Caroline shut him up.

“You disgust me.” Sage snarled at Klaus who just turned around and stared at her surprised.

“Sage not now.” Finn wrapped his hand around his wife protectively.

“It’s just it makes my blood boil she seems such a nice person and he ruined her. Seventeen and with twins and one of them is highly gifted. Not that being gifted is a bad thing but it makes it quite difficult to deal with some situations and she has been all by herself. And now this moron is here asking for his rights… What rights you straight asshole? You abandoned her and to become an artist. Although I am not denying he is one of the greatest artists, I’ve ever seen. But he did all the drugs known to man, got into more fights than we can count and let’s not forget his playboy ways… As a doctor, I am surprised he didn’t get any STD’s or something like that. How can any of you expect her to leave her daughters with a man like that? I’m sure as hell I wouldn’t.” Sage said in Caroline’s defence.

“I thought Elijah was my favourite Mikaelson, obviously I was wrong. Katherine Pierce, nice to meet you.” Katherine shook Sage’s hand.

“I made mistakes in the past but Caroline I promise you I changed.” Klaus stared at her beautiful gaze.

“Care don’t buy that crap.” The Bulgarian brunette muttered.

“Cut the crap Katherine. This isn’t about Nik and Caroline anymore, it’s about those kids!” Bekah shot back.

“Or what? What are you going to do?” Katherine smirked when she saw how furious Rebekah was.

“Do you want to see what I’ll do to your face?” Bekah walked towards Katherine.

“ENOUGH!” Caroline screamed scaring everyone in the room. She felt as if she was grounding her twins when they start arguing or fighting.

“Sorry…” Both of them whispered at the same time.

“Look Klaus you keep telling me you’re a changed man but all I’ve seen is the same coward who lashes at everyone once he doesn’t get what he wants, besides your mother and your wife doesn’t make you win any points… Right now, I have one child who is absolutely furious and the other one is broken hearted. I don’t think either of them want to see you and you must understand them. If you changed so much then prove it to me and give them time. Hope come around and Lizzie too… Eventually.” Caroline reasoned with the thirty-year-old man who looked like a deer caught in the lights.

“I don’t want them to hate me Caroline. If I give them time they’ll just forget about me.” He stared at her brokenly.

“Maybe they do or maybe they don’t… That’s not your choice to make Klaus, it’s theirs.” Her soft voice replied.

“I am sorry for abandoning you if I had the chance I would turn my back on them and not on you.”  Klaus whispered to her.

“Yeah of course you would. After twelve years is so easy to talk and claim, you actually love my nieces. But, you know what you did to my sister? You literally broke her heart, threated her and then you abandoned her. When she came to our home in New Orleans did you know how many times I had to take her to the hospital because she didn’t eat enough food. Let’s not forget the fact she was most of the time in her bed depressed because of everything you’ve done. I actually threated her just so she ate the amount of food she needed. I had to tell her that I would leave her in a clinic so they would control her eating habits.” Hayley dangerously spat at the blonde haired artist.

“Hayley stop.” Caroline begged.

“No, he says he wants to be a father, right? Then he should know everything he put you through since he is a ‘changed’ man.” Hayley mocked. “You see idiot after my little sister was comfortable enough with the fact she would gain weight things seemed to be better. And then Katherine moved in which made things even better. When she was twenty five weeks pregnant she saw some news that made her go to labour early. Wanna know what those fucking news were Klausy? You see there was this failed excuse of a man who was driving while he was high as a fucking kite and he was very injured they thought he was going to die. In my opinion he deserved to die.” She spat staring at Klaus who was just looking at Caroline.

“Who was that man?” Camille asked.

“You are just retarded, It’s obviously Klaus.” The red-haired woman screamed tired of so much hypocrisy.

“Sage!” Finn whispered. He wanted to make sure his wife wasn’t stressed because stress was bad for their unborn child.

“Hormones.” She muttered.

“As I was saying my little Carebear had a premature labour and my nieces were born nine weeks earlier. At twenty-five weeks of development, the survival rating is about fifty per cent. Both of them were underweight, their skin was red, they had so many wires connected into their little bodies… Maybe that does make you happy.” Hayley continued for the first time she saw that egotistical man terrified.

“What kind of monster you think I am? I-I Caroline if I knew about this I would had left everything and I would supported you.” Klaus walked towards Caroline holding her right hand.

“Hey, step back I am not done.” Hayley pushed him away from her sister. “As I was saying Hope was underweight but she is the one who recovered first after seventy-five days she was ready to go home but Lizzie on the other hand. They thought she was going to die you know? Not that you would care anyway. The doctors tried to see if she could finally breathe on her own but she was so weak she couldn’t. In her ninetieth day at the hospital her whole body started to convulse. If it wasn’t for Enzo, Lizzie wouldn’t be alive today. Finally, after one hundred and twenty days she finally came home. Where the fuck were you when my little nieces fought for their little lives?”

Hearing all of that impacted Klaus. He never thought Caroline felt that way and he couldn’t believe how his stupidity almost costed the lives of his daughters. For the first time in thirteen years, he felt weak once again. It was like remembering Henrik’s death all over again. He couldn’t stop himself and his eyes started to watering, his tears start to fall from his beautiful blue eyes.

“I don’t know what to say, it doesn’t even matter what I say. I’ve lost the three of you a long time ago. I see it now. But I give you my word love I am going to be the man you needed all those years ago, I’ll do anything you want even if it’s stay away from you for a time. If you want I’ll show you my reports of the rehab clinic and my psychologist for my anger issues, you don’t want my mother and my fiancé near them and I give you word they won’t even get close to them. I failed you more times than I can count.” Katherine suddenly interrupted Klaus.

“Damn right, you’re the biggest failure I’ve ever meet.”

“Why do you hate my siblings so much Katerina?” Elijah asked tired of her snarky comments about his siblings.

“Shut up Katherine. Caroline, I would like at least seeing more pictures and videos of them. Whenever you want just call me, and I’ll be there for you and the girls. Take care love, call me whenever you need anything, I don’t care about the time, goodbye love.” He caressed her shoulders and kissed her forehead and she realized he was silently crying, he was trembling under her touch. He needed to leave before he broke down in front of everyone. He turned around and walked to his studio without turning back.

“Elijah, Could you give Nik- Klaus something from me?” Caroline asked.

“Of course miss Forbes, whatever you need.” Elijah politely said.

Caroline walked towards the couch where her daughters’ schoolbags were. She opened the galaxy themed bag and pulled out Lizzie’s photo album. She handed the album to Elijah who smiled sadly, but he was thankful she had such a kind heart to even listen to Klaus after everything she’s been through.

“Give it to him. I think we should go Lizzie must probably planning her escape as we speak.” She slightly joked.

“Yes, you should go. We’ll see each other Miss Forbes.” He smiled kindly.

“Bye Care! We’ll go to your house so Henrik and Lizzie can play together.” Sage smiled.

“I’m sure she’ll be really happy about it.” Hayley smiled.

“Let’s just go.” Katherine said grabbing Hope’s schoolbag.

The Forbes residence, Caroline’s bedroom:

After they arrived home both of the twins were exhausted and very upset. They went to their room and changed into their cute pyjamas. Lizzie’s was wearing her favourite purple Scooby Doo pyjama while Hope was wearing her yellow Winnie the Pooh pyjama. Both of them had their hands crossed and stared at their mother waiting for an explanation.

“Girls…” Caroline didn’t know where to start.

“Is that why you didn’t want me to go to the art exhibition?” Hope asked with her little voice.

Caroline took a deep breath and closed her eyes one last second before replying with complete honestly. “Yes, I meet your father-“

“He is not my dad.” Lizzie muttered.

“I know you are not happy about it but Lizzie he is your father.” Caroline replied sweetly.

“Continue mommy.” Hope begged.

“Yes, I want to know everything.” Lizzie innocently said.

“Well, you girls remember how much I always tell you how perfect you girls are right?” She waited for her children to nod their little heads before she continued. “Well, I didn’t feel pretty or important… I had a very low self-teem and because of that I did very bad things with the food.”

Lizzie frowned sadly trying to hold her tears. She didn’t like hearing about her mother being so sad and alone. It made her feel bad. “You were bulimic I know mom. It’s when you eat lots of food but then you go to the bathroom and you puke it, so you don’t get fat.” The little blonde explained to her sister who had an expression full of shock. Her mother was the sweetest person alive, she isn’t supposed to do that sort of bad things.

“Mommy, why?” Hope sadly said already crying.

“Mommy just had a hard life, baby. But it’s okay since I found out I was pregnant with the cutest babies ever I stopped and I’ve never done it again.” Caroline assured her children who instantly relaxed hearing that.

“When I was fifteen you father moved with his siblings to Mystic Falls. And when I saw him for the first time I feel in love with him. He understood how I felt and he was always there for me when I needed him.” Caroline continued.

“Yes until you found out we were coming, then he ran away like Scooby and Shaggy when they see a ghost.” Lizzie said she hated that man.

“He wasn’t always like that, Lizzie. His life wasn’t nice either…” She didn’t wanted to deepen about his past.

“Good, he deserves it.” The youngest Forbes raised her eyebrow as a sign of rebellion but her mother just rolled her eyes. That made her angry.

“Don’t say things like that Lizzie.” Her mother replied.

“Don’t interrupt mommy, Lizzie. We hear her out and then we say what we think.” Hope scolded her sister.

“But that’s the thing, I already know everything!” The little blonde shot back at her sister.

“Girls… The thing is that we fell in love and when I was sixteen I found out, I was pregnant with you girls. And when I told him, he said he wasn’t ready. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you both.” Caroline tried to sugarcoat the story from the looks of her daughters as she expected Hope seemed somewhat happy when she heard her father loved her however Lizzie wasn’t buying it.

“That’s exactly what it means. If loved us so much why didn’t he called us before? Why wasn’t he man enough to step up to the place?” The little gifted child asked.

“Lizzie, mom said he wasn’t ready.” Hope replied.

“And you are stupid enough to believe that?” The child spat.

“Elizabeth.” Caroline warned.

“Fine whatever, he loves us. Yay!” Lizzie raised her hands sarcastically.

“Will you just shut up.” Hope muttered, they promised uncle Stefan they wouldn’t be harsh on their mother.

“After he told me he wasn’t ready I moved to New Orleans with your auntie Hayley and a couple months after before you girls were born aunt Kat and uncle Stefan moved in with us. And then you girls were born and life just continued without him.” Caroline finished.

Hope was quiet, she was in a big dilemma right now. She is happy because she has finally meet her dad and she liked his family except for his girlfriend. But she knew how much her mother went through because of her dad. She didn’t think she could forget everything he did and she also didn’t want to see him at the moment.

“Mommy, I understand he was young and two babies are a lot of responsibility and I also understand his dad was evil and he used to hit him and hurt him all the time.” Hope started.

“His dad did what? I didn’t know that…” A shocked Lizzie replied.

 “Yeah, he explained to me when we were in his studio. He told me when he was eleven his dad who is not actually his dad caught his notebook full of his paintings and he burned every single page in front of him and then he said he was a girl. Cause only girls do girly things like painting. He has a scar on his wrist cause his dad tied him up for hours.” The honey haired child sadly explained.

“I didn’t know that. He just told me about when he travels around the world I thought that was cool, he has lived so many cool stories. And what did his mom do?” Lizzie gasped.

“Nothing, she just ignored it. Klaus told me he doesn’t love her and he said that we have no idea how lucky we are to have a mom like you mommy. And I thought of course I know how lucky I am, you are the best mom in the whole entire universe.” Hope hugged her mother.

“You are so sweet.” The woman kissed her eldest daughter forehead.

“However, I don’t think I am ready to forgive him mommy. His life was hard I understand that but… He still abandoned us for so long. I need time to think about it. But I don’t want Camille near us.” Hope reasoned.

“Camille won’t be a problem baby.” The eldest blonde assured.

“Either way mommy, I need time to think about it. I can’t forgive him that easily. I’m sorry.” She muttered.

“It’s okay you feel like this Hope, you don’t have to apologize. I won’t pressure you, if you don’t want to see him you won’t but if you would like to meet him we could always call him. We have all the time in the world.” Caroline gave her a half smile.

“I really don’t want to see him right now nor tomorrow or even the day after.” Hope said once again, she wasn’t ready to face her father.

“It’s understandable. Let’s just enjoy Christmas okay? Then we’ll see what we do.”

“Kay, we can do that. I’m going to go with aunt Kat and Hayley we will make a gingerbread house. Lizzie I’ll wait for you and then we will build another one.” Hope said running away with her aunts leaving Caroline and Lizzie alone.

“She’s gone mommy. Now you don’t have to lie anymore.” The little blonde closed the door and turned to her mother.

Caroline exhaled she knew the complicated part started now. “I know you’re upset baby. Bu-“

“I’m upset when Hope tries to eat the last cookie for the cookie jar, I’m upset when people treat me as if I was stupid, I am upset when you ground me. Mommy, I am more than just upset. I am so angry and so sad.” The youngest child sat down on the soft carpet.

“I know…”

“No, you don’t. You are trying to make him look like a good guy and he isn’t good, he is a monster. My father is a monster.” Lizzie stared at the floor.

“I know you think that but he isn’t that bad, Lizzie.” Caroline kneeled beside her youngest daughter.

“How can you ask me to love him after everything he’s done to you? How you think I felt when I read he used you just for a stupid bet he made with bastard Damon.” The little blonde called Damon the way her aunt Kat taught her.

“How do you even know all of that? And how come you never told me?” Caroline asked.

“Three years ago, Hope and I sneak out from the living room and we went here to this very same room. Then we had a fight cause I was tired of watching Hannah Montana and I wanted to watch Casper. I broke her Hannah DVD so we could watch Casper but she was smarter than I anticipated and she pulled my hair. I obviously fought back but Hope is really strong, mommy. She pushed me to the floor it was back then when I heard a hollow noise coming from the floor so I thought that maybe there was a treasure underneath this carpet…” Lizzie started explaining.

Hearing that only made the adult woman become slightly paler, she always hid her diaries on that spot. It was the perfect spot because it was really well camouflaged not even her mother would know they were in there.

“Then auntie Hayley ground me because I broke that stupid DVD and Hope was grounded cause she hit me. So we end up watching ‘Guardians of the galaxy’ it was so epic mommy, I love Rocket and Hope’s favourite is Groot.” The small girl rambled just like her mother does.

“Focus baby.” Caroline wrapped her arms around the child who still didn’t look into her eyes.

“Oh, yes sorry. So well I was pissed at Hope I didn’t told her about the hidden treasure underneath this carpet. At night while you were in LA planning one of your awesome events I went inside your room and with a stick I opened the floor and there was it! A bunch of stuff was in there. Then I saw your diaries and since you have the most beautiful handwriting of this entire universe. I couldn’t help myself I read them all. The three of them. I thought there were just happy memories but mommy everything you wrote in there was heart-breaking. I just felt so sad, this people hurt you so much.” The little girl pouted blinking as fast as she could trying to stop her tears.

“Why you never told me anything Lizzie?” Caroline’s voice broke.

“Cause I thought that as long as you and Hope were happy it was alright… I would know the truth but Hope would be happy with the illusion that our father was a good man. I just wanted to protect her. But I am so sad.” Lizzie couldn’t help herself and her tears started to fall but she was completely silent.

“Lizzie I know what you’ve read must hurt but I wrote that twelve years ago. Everthing-“

“Do you really have no life because of me?” Lizzie whispered.

“No, of course not! Look I wrote that when I was sixteen and Klaus reaction wasn’t what I expected him to be. But let me tell you something. You and your sister are the reason I’m alive. As you knew, I was doing very bad stuff and everyday I was thinner and I ate less… But from the moment I saw you and your sister I knew every single bad thing that happened to me was worth it if it meant you’ll be my side. I don’t regret having you girls, I’ll never regret you.” Caroline lifted her daughter’s chin so she can stare at her beautiful eyes who were now red from the crying.

“I know you don’t mommy. But he actually said to you ‘ It’s nothing but a bunch of cells. I don’t want it! Abort it, kill it. I don’t want nothing that’s going to link me to you until the day I die.’ How could I forgive that? And I’m not my a bunch of cells I am my own little person, just like Hope is.” Lizzie rested her head in her mother’s neck.

“He did and said unforgivable things to me baby. However, I don’t want you to have this anger inside of you. If you don’t want him to be a part of your life, he won’t be. That’s your choice to make if you want to give him a chance or not.” Caroline caressed her daughter’s soft blonde locks.

“I am not going to forgive him. I don’t want to see his handsome face ever again. I actually liked him when he explained me about his trips and his paintings. And then he has to ruin everything. I don’t regret what I told him and I know my words hurt him a lot which is good cause now, we’re even. In your diaries you never mentioned his name, you only said ‘Him’…” The child darkly said.

“Lizzie baby, if you try to get back at everyone who’s ever wronged you, you’ll never be happy. I don’t want you to hate Klaus.”

“I don’t want to get back at everyone… Just at Klaus. And as you said before it’s my choice, right? I choose to not to love him. Cause if I do he’ll only hurt me at the end like he did to you mommy.” Lizzie hid her face in her mother’s neck with her hands around Caroline to make sure she didn’t run away.

Knowing there was no way her daughter was going to change her mind so easily she changed the subject. “What about your uncles and aunts?”

“I…I actually like them, Kol, Bekah and Sage are my favourites. But I also like Finn a lot and Elijah too he plays the piano. Freya well… She seems very sweet but she’s always around her mother and she is creepy. She looks at me and I suddenly feel unwanted and unloved. I don’t really like her… I told Hope she seemed nice but deep down she knew I was lying.” The child confessed making her mother laugh.

“Yes, Esther is a very unique woman.”

“I would like to spend more time with them but not with Klaus. I will give them a chance, but if they try to make like Klaus I shut them out too.” Lizzie reasoned.

“That’s fair.”

“Mommy, I am actually doing this for Hope. Because yes, I hate Klaus and his stupid wife but there is only one thing stronger than the hate I feel for him right now. And that is the love I feel for you and Hope. If it makes her happy, I’ll give them a chance. You and Hope are the two people I love the most in this world and I would do anything for you, even if it’s hiding a deep secret like I read your diaries when I was eight years old. I would do anything for you cause you are the most important woman of my life.” The child sweetly kissed her mother’s neck.

“You are so sweet.” Caroline sniffed wiping out her tears.

“See what I mean he makes you sad. We’ve been here for only four days and you already cried twice and I don’t like it, it hurts my heart.” The child whispered.

“And it hurts mine when I see you with so much anger inside. The things your father-“

“Klaus, a father is someone who is by your side and he isn’t. He just put a small part of his DNA to make Hope and I. Aunt Hayley explained me how reproduction works.” Lizzie said.

Klaus had a very hard life Lizzie. I am not excusing his behaviour but-“

“If his dad who is not actually his dad hurt him and his mother didn’t do anything to save him. Why when you told him you were pregnant he left you? Shouldn’t he be like ‘my dad was evil but don’t worry because I’ll be the man you need’?”

“Sometimes peo-“

“Shouldn’t he be a good person? Mom I googled him and he took nasty substances, he is always drinking in pictures or smoking… He has a criminal record because he drove his car while he was intoxicated. The only reason he isn’t in jail it’s because Elijah is an excellent lawyer and he is rich. Being rich always helps. Mommy I am ashamed of him. I don’t want people to know a man like that is my father biologically speaking of course.” Lizzie confessed.

“Even though he did bad things he also made very good ones… It’s up to you my pretty baby. Whatever you’ll do I’ll be by your side.” Caroline hugged her while her daughter kissed her cheek.

“I need more time to think about this mommy.”

“Take all the time you need.”

“Camille is a bitch.” The child mischievously said.

“You have no idea…” Caroline laughed. “But you can’t say things like that.”

“I know mommy. Can we stay more like this hugging each other and not really talking about anything?”

“Of course we can.” Caroline replied cradling her youngest child.

“Good cause I’m feeling peachy and I need love.” Her daughter replied sniffing her mother’s neck.

Mikaelson Mansion, Klaus’ studio:

After saying goodbye to Caroline, Klaus hid himself in his studio. He drank an entire bottle of bourbon and he managed to break everything that crossed his path. Everything was a mess, he was angry with his mother, with Camille but mostly with himself. He never thought Caroline would actually have their child, let alone two. He thought his past was in the past but not anymore. When he saw for the first time those little girls at his art exhibition he felt something like a warm feeling in his heart he thought he stopped feeling when his little brother Henrik died. Then when he started to talk to them, somewhat it felt right. Lizzie was the splitting image of her mother but that sassy attitude was all his and Hope looked like him but she was as sweet as her mother.

When he found out those were his daughters a part of him was absolutely terrified. But he was also exited, from the moment he meet them he felt a strong feeling of protection towards them. After confronting his beautiful ex he knew those kids were his and she actually agreed to come to his family lunch and everything was according to plan Hope admired him and Lizzie was starting to open up to him.

But then Camille had to fuck everything up. The artist darkly thought.

“What on earth happened in here?” His brother asked helping him to stand up.

“I was truly happy for a couple of hours and then as usual everything turned to ashes.” Klaus muttered.

“Niklaus, How could you do all those things to the poor girl?” Elijah asked while he helped his brother to sit down on the couch.

“If you came here to make me feel like shit you can leave now. My children and their aunts already made sure of that.” Klaus spat.

“You deserved every word they said to you and much more. However I am your brother and I’ll always will do anything to protect you.” Elijah sat next to him.

“Yes, just like you did when Mikael used to tie me up and lock me up in our basement in complete darkness. Cold and alone that’s how I always felt.” Klaus laughed maniacally.

“I should had killed him the first time he laid a finger on you. I failed you before brother but I promise you I won’t ever leave you or let you ruin your life.” Elijah said full of regret.

“Everything was different when I was with Caroline. She’s always been so strong, so beautiful and so full of light. She eclipsed all the darkness I felt inside even if it just was for a little while.” Klaus stared sadly at his studio. Everything was broken except Henrik’s portrait.

“If she was so good why you did that to her? Elizabeth mentioned something about a bet with Damon what was that about?” Elijah asked.

“It’s quite simple really. I didn’t want to ruin her. As for the bet it’s just an excuse I made up so she could hate me. If I learned something in my life is that it’s easier dealing with anger than with pain.” He confessed.

“Why did you thought you would ruin her?”

“Because look at me I am fucking mess… When I was eighteen I was blinded by anger rage and pain, I just wanted to see Mikael burn, Caroline was bulimic… I wanted something better for her. She deserved better much better than me. I thought if I actually had stayed with her she might end up hating me for ruining her life. I couldn’t let this whole Esther-Mikael relationship repeat itself with me and Caroline. I did the good thing when I let her go.” He blinked fast to make sure his brother didn’t see his tears.

“Why you thought she might resent you? She is a remarkable young woman. She managed to raise two wonderful children, she has her PHD, and she’s never asked you for a single penny. If you weren’t so naïve maybe you would be married to her with more children and those wonderful little girls would had love you-“

“Do you honestly think I don’t fucking know Elijah?” Klaus violently spat.

“We can’t change the past Niklaus, but we can rebuild the future. So instead of drinking your sorrows you should be on your knees begging for forgiveness or at least try to repair everything you’ve done. Miss Forbes told me to give you this.” Elijah gave him the Lizzie’s album.

Klaus only nodded his head amazed at his brother’s explanation and then he took the album from Elijah’s hands. Elijah rubbed his youngest brother shoulder and then he left the studio closing the door behind him leaving Klaus with his daughter’s album.

Maybe it wasn’t so late for his brother after all. The suited man thought.
