Gone With The Time

By Clockshapedwalls

Adventure / Romance

Chapter 1

The wind blew on Caroline's face, drying her confused tears. She sighed as she opened a tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream and dug her spoon into the gooey substance. She swung on her porch chair. She had been thinking about her life for the past 3 hours, staring off into space. The sky had grown darker already, leaving her feeling lonely and empty.

Her phone vibrated, waking Caroline up from the trance she had been in.

She took the phone up to her ears, "Hey, what's up Bonnie?"

"Caroline, I'm starting to worry about you. Don't you remember today was supposed to be girl's night? It's already 8 pm and you're still not here!"

Oh right. Shit. She had completely forgotten about that.

"Oh, yeah.. Erm.. Sorry about that, I'll be right there. Please tell Elena that I'm sorry. I'll bring pizza on my way!" Caroline said, trying to sound cheerful.

"Okay.. Hurry!" Bonnie said, hanging up.

Caroline sighed as she got up from her comfortable position.

She pushed her door opened, the gloomy darkness greeting her. "Mom!?" Caroline yelled into the empty space.

Silence.

"Like always...She's never here," Caroline muttered, running up to her room.


Caroline knocked on Bonnie's door, "Bonnie! Open the damn door already!" she yelled.

"Sheesh, you're the one who's late, why are you also the one screaming?" Bonnie said jokily, opening the door.

Caroline stepped into the witch's house, setting the box of pizza on the kitchen table.

"So, what's the plan for today?" Caroline asked.

"Well, the usual, you know. Watch chick movies, do each others' nails, eat a year's worth of junk-food, drink alcohol until we pass out?" Elena shrugged, hugging a pillow.

"I am so ready to do that. Things have been so stressful lately, all I want is a day of just...Not caring about anything," Caroline said, trying to look enthusiastic.

The girls changed into their pajamas and went up to Bonnie's room.

The next 3 hours was full of tossing popcorn at each other, painting nails, braiding hairs, and watching a classic Disney movie 'The Beauty and the Beast'.

"I don't know what it is about Disney movies, but they never grow old," Elena said as the movie finished.

"Well, it is a classic love story. I wonder if stories like that really exist in real life," Bonnie shrugged, tossing a popcorn into her mouth.

"But yet I'm stuck in a love-triangle with Damon and Stefan... I'm getting really sick of them being so over-protective and possessive. I'm an independent woman, you know? I also don't like how they keep thinking I can't handle being a vampire! I'm a grown-up now, I can handle things by myself," Elena sighed.

"At least you HAVE guys liking you, Elena. Who do I have?" Bonnie asked.

"You got Jer, Bonnie! He really likes you, you know?" Elena replied.

"I know, but it's still a bit weird for me. I mean, he's your brother...Plus he's a year younger," Bonnie thought.

"Hey. Hey. He likes you, okay? He only talks about you when he comes to visit me."

Bonnie blushed and they both giggled.

Elena looked at Caroline, who was staring off into space, not saying a word.

"Caroline? Is something wrong? This isn't like you. Why aren't you saying a word?" Elena asked, worried.

"Oh, it's nothing..." Caroline said, trying to shake the subject off.

"It doesn't look like nothing," Bonnie replied, raising her eyebrow.

"Come on, Care, we've been with you for years. We know when something is wrong. Tell us," Elena said, putting a hand on Caroline's shoulder.

Caroline's eyes started to wet as she broke down.

"I mean-everything's so confusing. Tyler's now on the run from Klaus, god knows what will happen to him? I love him. I can't lose another person I love! " Caroline cried, hugging herself.

"Shhh, shh. It's okay," Bonnie said softly, hugging her crying friend.

"And the worst part is, I don't know how I feel about Klaus! I thought-I thought he would change! I...I thought I actually had something for him, but now this happens. I don't know what I'm supposed to feel anymore."

Bonnie and Elena looked at each other, shocked. They didn't know Caroline would actually fall for someone like Klaus. The psychotic killer who showed no feelings.

"Caroline, why are you falling for Klaus? He's...a killer," Elena asked quietly.

"He made me feel so-different and special. No guy has ever made me feel so alive and special before. I was every guy's second choice; I was always the rebound. Everyone thinks I'm just a shallow, un-stable blonde loser," Caroline replied, sobbing.

"Hey! Nobody thinks of you like that! You're so bright and cheerful, you're smart, you're popular, you're beautiful-" Bonnie started, but Caroline cut her off.

"those things are what I try to be, Bonnie. I feel like I put on a mask now, I can't ever be my true self."

Bonnie and Elena sighed, looking at their blonde friend. Their hearts felt pain, seeing her cry. It was true, what she all said. All the guys were all usually for Elena. Stefan, Damon, Matt...

"But Klaus?"

"I know it's wrong falling for him. It's just-he made me feel different," Caroline said, drying her tears "maybe he's just pretending to fancy me. Maybe there's something behind all of it. I don't know, I feel so confused. If only I knew his true intentions and thoughts, I would reconsider my feelings for him."

Bonnie looked at the window, and then back to her friend. "Caroline, I got an idea, but you I need your permission" Bonnie said. Caroline looked up, confused. "What?"

"I-I was reading some of the grimoires grams left me yesterday, and I found a spell about time travel. I think, maybe if I send you back in time, you can see Klaus...and know his TRUE thoughts of you before he even knew about any of us in Mystic Falls."

"That's a brilliant idea, Bonnie!" Elena agreed, nodding her head.

"Is-is it safe?" Caroline asked, worried.

"Yes. You'll still be a vampire. You can die. So you have to be careful, and try not to change so many things for the future. Don't bond with other people too much. You'll have to leave them eventually, and that will only leave you more heartbroken," Bonnie said, her eyes sparkling. "You will travel to 4 different places, so use your time wisely. You will be there for a month each, but it will only be a day in our time. I'll try to send messages to you through magic, but I don't know if I will succeed. If you need help, always look for a Bennett witch. No other witch, okay?"

"You guys think it'll really work?" Caroline asked, hope lingering in her voice.

"Of course it will! It's a BRILLIANT idea!" Elena said again, throwing a pillow at Caroline's face.

Caroline shot Elena a glare, but her lips soon broke into a smile.

The three girls giggled as they hugged each other, glad that Caroline was finally happy.

After an hour of joking and giggling, the girls finally went to sleep.
