Klaus, Elijah, Elizabeth (X), EJ (X), Lucy (X), and Luke (X) were all standing in the cemetery. Some witches and Hayley were present as well as they discussed the life of Klaus's unborn child.
"No. It's impossible." Disbelieved Klaus.
Elijah gazed as his brother, "I said the same thing myself."
"This is a lie. You are all lying. Vampires cannot procreate." Said Klaus as he pointed at everyone in the room.
"But werewolves can. Magic made you a vampire, but you were born a werewolf. You're the Original hybrid, the first of your kind," Sophie looked at Hayley, "And this pregnancy is one of nature's loopholes." She said, trying to get through Klaus's head how realistic their situation was. Klaus glared at her while a smile almost creped over Elijah's face.
Elizabeth looked at her adoptive father, "Dad. Its unbelievable, but its not impossible." She said softly.
But Klaus ignored her, "You've been with someone else, admit it!" He screamed at Hayley. Pointing an accusing finger at her as he made his way towards her. But EJ pushed him back.
"Hey, I've spent days held captive in a freaking alligator bayou because they think that I'm carrying some magical miracle baby. Don't you think I would've fessed up if it wasn't yours?" Complained Hayley.
"She's reasonable, you know." Luke spoke up. Getting a glare from EJ. Those past years that they've spent living as Michaelson's, and no longer Cullen's, they have adapted to their ways of living a supernatural life. EJ learned a lot of things from Klaus, and sometimes Elizabeth worried that EJ would become just like Klaus. While Luke was as noble as Elijah, Elizabeth and Lucy praised their sweet old Aunt Rebekah. They all had someone to go to when they needed advise and when they wanted to be shown love. Klaus has the role of being a cold hearted monster but he had shown a fatherly figure towards the quadruplets.
"My sister gave her life to perform the spell she needed to confirm this pregnancy," Klaus turned to look at Sophie, "Because of Jane-Anne's sacrifice, the lives of this girl and her baby are now controlled by us. We can keep them save . . ." Sophie took a deep breath, "Or we can kill them," Sophie took a four steps towards Klaus, "And if you don't help us take down Marcel, so help me, Hayley won't live long enough to see her first maternity dress." She said. Elijah had a worried expression on. Luke vamped speed next to Hayley as a protective stance.
"Wait, what?" Hayley blurted with wide eyes while she caressed her stomach. Sophie moved out of Klaus's way as he walked slowly towards the exit.
"You can't just do that." Lucy argued. She glared daggers at Sophia.
EJ walked behind Klaus, "Enough of this. If you want Marcel dead, he's dead. I'll do it myself." He said, having in urge to protect his soon to be baby brother or sister.
Sophie looked between Hayley and Klaus, "No. We can't, not yet. We have a clear plan that we need to follow, and there are rules." She said.
EJ sighed, "Since when do we listen to witches." Elizabeth slapped the back of his head. Elijah lookedkes at Klaus, awaiting his reaction.
"How dare you command me, threaten me, with what you wrongfully perceive to be my weaknesses," He opened his arms and let them fall to his sides, "This is a pathetic deception. I won't hear any more lies." Hissed Klaus as he confronted Elijah.
He walked away once again but Lucy stopped him, "Dad! . . . Listen." She said. He looked at Hayley, then at his brother, his children, and lastly, the witches. He turned back to Hayley, who was clutching her stomach, his eyes trailing to her stomach. He could hear the babies heart beat. The sound hitting his ears like a ticking bomb. His face seemed to soften as his eyes gleamed with tears. He looked at Elijah, who smiled, but changed his expression as Klaus seemed not to crack.
Klaus then looked at, and he simply just shook his head, "Kill her and the baby. What do I care?" He spat. With that he left the area in vampire speed. EJ right behind him, as always.
Hayley walked away, "Screw this. I'm out of here!" She said, but was stopped by the witches. Luke vampire speed in front of Hayley as Sophie tried to grab her as well.
"No one touches the girl. I'll fix this." Promised Elijah. Sophie narrowed her eyes but nodded.
"I'm coming with you." Luke vamp speed after Elijah. Elizabeth and Lucy stayed behind with Hayley as they both glared at the witches present before them.
Klaus and EJ ran through a street as Elijah and Luke caught up with them.
"Niklaus." Elijah said, trying to catch Klaus's attention. EJ stood looking back in fourth as Luke stood next to Elijah.
"It's a trick, Elijah." Klaus's Jaw clenched.
"No, brother. It's gift. It's your chance – it's our chance." Elijah tried to convince.
"There's possibilities that's not true--" EJ argued.
"EJ, stay out of it." Elijah gave EJ a look. EJ immediately kept silent.
"To what?" Klaus questioned Elijah's previous words.
"To start over. Take back everything we lost, everything that was taken from us. Niklaus, our own parents came to despise us. Our family was ruined – we were ruined. And since then, all that you have ever wanted – all that we have ever wanted was a family." Elijah's face dropped as he thought of their past as children. He walked up to Klaus,
"Maybe, he's right. I lived two years of my past life called a monster by own family," Said Luke, "I wouldn't like that child to have to experience that."
"I will not be manipulated." Said Klaus, turning away but Elijah in vamp-speed went over to block his way.
"So they're manipulating you. So what? With them, this girl and her child –your child – live." Elijah said, calmly as ever. Luke, vamped-speed to Klaus and put a hand on his shoulder.
"You put that child inside of her. It takes two to make a baby." Klaus glanced at his son from the corner of his eye.
"I'm gonna kill every last one of them." Klaus hissed. Luke let go of of Klaus's shoulder. Klaus shoved Elijah and turned away, but once again Elijah with vampire-speed over and blocked him.
"And then what? Then you return to Mystic Falls to resume your life as the hated one, as the evil hybrid? Is it so important to you that people quake with fear at the sound of your name? That's not an example I thought you would give to your children." Klaus glared daggers at Elijah with every word he said.
"People quake with fear because I have the power to make them afraid. What will this child offer me? Will it guarantee me power? As for my children," he pointed at Luke and EJ, "My boys are fine, grown men already. My girls are safe and protected, as they can protect themselves."
"Family is power, Niklaus. Love, loyalty – that's power. This is what we swore to one another a thousand years ago, before life tore away what little humanity you had left, before ego, before anger, before paranoia created in this person before me someone I can barely even recognize as my own brother," Klaus looked at Elijah with a menacing look, "This is us, the Original family, and we remain together, always and forever. I am asking you to stay here. I will help you and I will stand by you. I will be your brother. We will build a home here together. So save this girl. Save your child. And show your children the man I used to know. Not the man you have become." Elijah placed a hand on Klaus' shoulder. Klaus brought his own hand to Elijah's neck in a brotherly gesture. "No." Klaus whispered and walked away.
Elizabeth and Lucy were in the mausoleum on each side of Hayley as the witches talked.
"Marcel and his vampires are out of control. Something had to be done." Sophie said as she spoke directly with Agnes.
"In my behave, Marcel might just kill you," Elizabeth hissed, taking a prosponed protection towards her step-brother, "Haven't you ever heard of a saying that concluded if the person isn't here to defend themselves, why not wait to be face to face and then you can run your mouth all you want."
"Do they have to be here?" Agnes questined. Glaring at the two Originals.
"Focus Agnes! I can care less of these monsters." Sophie said.
Agnes had a dumbfounded look, "And the solution is to bring in more vampires?"
"These aren't just any vampires, Agnes. They're the Originals," Sophia nodded towards Elizabeth and Lucy, "And they have just recently entered the family. Klaus has given his blood to these four unknown children and has made them hybrids, just like him. Before he even changed these children, they were half human and half vampire. For now I assume they are half human, half vampire, and half werewolf." Sophia tried to explain.
"You know. You can just ask us questions, and stop talking like we are not here." Lucy defended.
Agnes held up a hand, "What makes you think you can control the hybrid? " Agnes looked straight into Sophia's eyes.
Elijah appeared, leaning against a the wall, "She can't. I'm not entirely certain that I can, either. But now that your coven has drawn his ire, I have a question: What prevents my brother from murdering you instead of cooperating?"
Sophie took a needle and showed it to Elijah. She stuck the needle into her hand.
"Ow!" Hayley cried. Elijah looked at her. There was a drop of blood on her hand, exactly at the same point where Sophie hurt herself.
"What the hell!?" Elizabeth yelled as she grabbed Hayley's hand. Hayley winced, "Sorry."
"The spell my sister performed, the one that got her killed? It didn't just confirm the pregnancy. It linked me to Hayley. So anything that happens to me, happens to her, which means her life is in my hands. Klaus may not care about his own child, but it's very clear what it already means to you. If I have to hurt Hayley – or worse – to ensure that I have your attention, and sweet little Elizabeth and Lucy's attention, I will." Sophie speeches. Elijah was slightly amused.
"You know, its not the time for a happy carousel." Lucy muttered.
"You would dare threaten an Original?" Elijah asked.
"I have nothing to lose." Sophie responded with a cold expression.The grin disappeared from Elijah's face.
"You have until midnight to get Klaus to change his mind." Sophie said.
