Kelsey watched how Stefan and Katherine took off from behind a tree. It had been this close before she got busted. She came from behind her tree and walked further into the woods in the direction of the hotel Klaus had kept his prisoners. At first sight the place seemed to be deserted. She entered the hotel and covered her mouth. The bodies were lying there for a little longer than a month now.
“You get used to it”
Kelsey startled. She recognized Klaus’ voice.
“Don’t be rude” Klaus said. “Turn around. I can’t compel you, so I’ll have to trust on your manners”
Kelsey slowly turned around.
“Now, what is it that brings you here? Oh, wait, I know. You want my blood to save your sister? Am I right?” Klaus said.
“I’ll do anything, just give me a little of your blood” Kelsey begged. Klaus nodded at the bodies. “Give me a hand, will you?”
“What do I have to do?” Kelsey asked prepared to go to extremes.
“Put them together” Klaus ordered. Kelsey dragged the bodies and put them together. Klaus soaked them with gasoline and threw a match in it.
“Isn’t that beautiful” he said. “Now if you don’t mind, I have work to do” He turned around, intending to leave. Kelsey grabbed his arm to make him stop. Klaus gripped her fingers and squeezed them as he turned around again. “You don’t want to piss me off, love”
“You have to give me your blood” Kelsey said. “You’re the reason Amber’s dying, you have to help her”
“Hmm, let me think about it…No, sorry, can’t do it”
“You helped Stefan” Kelsey said desperate.
“You’re right. And now that Stefan’s gone I could use an ally” Klaus let go of her.
“Yes, I could help you. I can join you” Kelsey insisted. Klaus seemed to consider that idea, but then shook his head. “Sorry, doesn’t really appeal to me”
“You have to help me!” Kelsey said angry. “You were after me. You didn’t need Amber. You didn’t have to get her involved. You give me that fucking blood!” She tried to bite Klaus to make him bleed, but he raised his hand and punched her on the ground. He bit his wrist and forced his blood on Kelsey. “There you go. Whenever your sister dies, you won’t be separated for long”
