She needed to feed— whether she wanted to or not. But he wasn’t going to force her; instead, the bag landed somewhere on the table in front of her.
Just in case…
”Thanksgiving?” Had she really forgotten? “She wants to know how many plates to set out.”
Katherine’s darken gaze glanced down at the bag, simply staring at it for a moment. She wanted to eat… if not for her body’s sake, than his.
It wasn’t hard to see the worry practically staining his expression.
“Oh, right.” There’s a possibility it’d slipped her mind. That would require remembering what even today was.
“—- we can still go, if you want.”
It’s the first time in three years that he’s at a loss for how to talk to her.
She didn’t even look like Katherine anymore.
“I, uh, brought you a blood bag.”
—She hadn’t been feeding.
“Elena called; asked about next week…”
She doesn’t want to shut him out, she’s not trying to. It’s just… habit. Closing herself off to the world when she hurts.
Even if she was, blood hadn’t been agreeing with her lately.
The tired, pale and too slender vampire glanced up at him while shifting just a little. Making room beside her should he so desire to sit.
It’s Christmas Eve
There’s a fire in the fire place
Snow is gently falling outside…at night
And your otp slow dancing to the 1949 version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” while they’re softly laughing and kissing
Probably the single most attractive and sexy piece of clothing in the history of ever.
She had been like that for days.
And he had let her.
“Can we talk?”
It wasn’t like anyone could blame her after all.
Helped that she rarely had visitors, that’d require more than two friends and Jeremy.
His only indication to speak with a small nod of her head. Finding words other, than ‘we lost her before we had her’, was difficult these days.
Don’t mind the vampire with a bottle of bourbon in hand,
—— and two empties next to her.
|daddy!jeremy overcompensating to give Nadia and Katherine the best first Christmas ever|
You only had one first christmas with your child.
Katherine had been waiting 500 years for hers.
And out of the three of them, Jeremy was the one who had the most difficult time hiding the fact that it was a big deal.
