Although she shut the door in his face, Klaus still smiled. It took him half a second to go out to his Porsche and come back inside. He knocked on Caroline’s door gently. He had another box wrapped with another pretty bow. It was true, one couldn’t buy affection. However, that wasn’t what Nik was trying to do. He just wanted to give her…everything. He wanted to buy her everything she wanted and then give her the world on top of that. “If you don’t mind…I thought of that,” he said, knowing again that she could hear him just fine. “I brought another dress…I was hoping you’d consider wearing.” Klaus looked down and ran his fingers over the top thinking about the dress. She looked astonishing in blue, he already knew that. That had been the reason he’d gone for the dress. The black lace overlay just added to it…and he hoped that she would accept it. He wanted to see her wear something he’d picked out for her….because she wanted to. Not because she felt like there hadn’t been another option like she had said at the ball. Looking up, Nik straightened himself up and held out the box, standing there hoping that Caroline would open the door and at least look at it. “I really hope you’ll like it,” he added through the door.

She was already combing through her closet when she heard him speak outside her door. She cracked it open and looked at him curiously, her gaze traveling down to the package he held. She reached out and took it from him, flashing him a smile before closing the door in his face again. “This saves me a lot of time!” she called to him, opening the box. She smiled, it reminded her of the dress he had given her for the ball. She shed her clothes quickly and put the dress on. Caroline stood in front of the mirror, admiring the way it showed off all her best features. She quickly fixed her hair and did her makeup, a skill she was proud of. She didn’t know anybody who could get ready faster than her in the morning and look as good as she did. She pulled on a pair of black heels and grabbed her purse. She opened her door and smiled at Klaus. “Ready to go,” she said, stepping into the hallway.
