She definitely wasn’t expecting him to just go and stake her, Katherine’s reflexes having always been good but not being able to stop him this time. She could barely breath as she growls at Tyler, glaring at the hybrid as she holds onto the stake that was currently sticking out of her stomach. It hurt like hell but she would let him know that. She would just simply pull it out and go for his heart, knowing he was a hybrid but she was older so she could take him. She doesn’t take her eyes off of him as her temper starts to flare up and she quickly pulls the stake out, moving quickly and slamming him into the opposite wall by gripping his neck as she could. “Listen, Lockwood, you just blew whatever damn chance you had at working with me. First of all you’re a poor excuse of a friend if you’re going to give someone you love up so quickly. With you hating me you’ll give me up in no time if something better comes along. Secondly, staking me is not a way to get on my good side. You’re so stupid and I hope Klaus rips you limb from limb but in the meantime I’m going to make your life hell from now on. You just fucked with the wrong bitch.” Letting go of his neck, in an instant she plunges the stake into his chest right next to his heart, stepping back from the boy with a smirk. “Next time I won’t miss. Get out of my house before I rip your heart out. I’ll take care of Barbie Doll.”
Caroline was unable to do much from her position, the tight ropes were still burning into her skin and she hadn’t come-to properly yet. She felt herself shy away from Tyler’s touch, out of instinct more than anything. Her vampire side was almost the only thing that was keeping her going right now, and that was just identifying him as a threat. So she stayed quiet and looked away from them both, trying to block them out.
Katherine tips her head back against the couch as she waited for the hybrid to bring her barbie doll. She had been getting impatient when he finally said they were on their way and her level of annoyance was not something he wanted high up on the list right now. The boy wanted to be on her side, right? Well he had to prove to her that he’d be willing to do anything for Katherine without hesitation. Which meant he needed to do something he never would have done in the first place. She was surprised that it hadn’t taken him long to agree to this, he hadn’t really fought her on it or anything which made her question how loyal he could actually be if he would give up someone he supposedly loved so easily. She was just thinking of what to do to Caroline when she heard the knock on the door. A smirk forms as she walks to answer it, leaning against the door frame with a little laugh. “Surprise, Barbie. You guys can come in.” She pulls the two of them into the house before Caroline could even think of running. “Alright pup, don’t let her run away or I’ll have to torture you instead. In fact…” Katherine turns and sticks a needle into Caroline’s neck, plunging vervain into her system to weaken her. It wasn’t enough to kill, just enough to keep her there and hurt her quite a bit. She grins down at the girl before looking up at Tyler. “There’s a chair in the kitchen with ropes dipped in vervain. Have fun with that, I’m sure your hands will appreciate it.”
Caroline had been tempted to turn Tyler down, she was unsure of where they stood right now and it could just make things worse, but she’d given him the benefit of the doubt. Something she began regretting when she saw Katherine’s smirk behind the door, her head working at a mile an hour to work out what was happening until she felt the sharp pang of the needle in her skin, taking a moment as it made it’s way into her bloodstream, stumbling as she tried to stand up, going to back away from them both. She didn’t understand what was happening, the pictures and ideas that were forming in her mind didn’t make sense. Tyler working with Katherine? Why would he be working with her?
