While writing, I listened to "Think Twice" by Eve 6, and the lyrics come from that song as well.

Klaus used to watch Violet since they were kids. The way her hair flew in the wind; the ease with which her fingers moved while developing a new invention; how her eyes sparkled when their parents brought her junk items crucial for her inventions. He knew everything about her, and she wasn’t even aware.
She spreads her love
She burns me up
I can't let go
I can't get out
By the time Klaus was fourteen, he was madly in love with her. In his heart, he held her close, even though he knew she’d never be his.
Violet met a boy. His name was Duncan. Duncan Quagmire. Klaus noticed that the sparkle in her eyes was no longer reserved only for her inventions, but for Duncan now as well.
When all is said and done and dead
Does he love you
The way that I do
One day Klaus decided to reveal his feelings to Violet.
Walking up to her room, he was replaying the words in his head. He was so caught up that he forgot to knock. He automatically assumed she’d be inventing something.
What he had laid eyes upon made his words get stuck in his throat.
Violet and Duncan were sitting on her bed, embraced, in a lip-lock. They quickly pulled away and Violet gasped.
Klaus was in terror. He loved her and she cheated on him. He turned around without a word and trotted down the stairs.
When I showed up and he was there
I tried my best to grin and bear
And took the stairs but didn't stop at the street
And as we speak I'm going down
When he walked into his father’s room, he seemed to be on autopilot. He climbed the shelf near his father’s wardrobe and opened the top drawer with shaky hands. He pulled out the gun, and knew at instant that it was loaded.
His eyes filled up with tears and he stormed up the stairs. He banged the door open with his leg and pointed the gun at Violet. She screamed, and Duncan wielded himself at her, shielding her.
Tears were running down Klaus’s face.
“I loved you. I loved you, and you… you were with him. If I can’t have you, nobody will.”
He was sobbing.
“Duncan, move over.”
Klaus pulled the trigger.
Think twice before you touch my girl
Come around I'll let you feel the burn
Think twice before you touch my girl
Come around come around no more
Violet screamed as Duncan’s body fell backwards. She fell to her knees beside him, crying over his body. Klaus approached her and kneeled next to her.
As he put the gun to her head, she looked up. The sparkle in her eyes was no more. What Klaus saw now was darkness, terror, disgust… and hate. All directed towards him.
“Tell me you love me.” Klaus whispered.
“Never.” Violet said through gritted teeth.
Wait till the day you finally see
I've been here waiting patiently
Crossing my fingers and my t's
She cried on my shoulder begging please
Klaus’s expression darkened. He pulled the trigger.
Violet’s limp body fell over Duncan’s.
Klaus smiled and brushed her hair off her face. Leaning forward, he kissed her softly on the lips.
What is it you really want
I'm tired of asking
You're gone I'm wasted
He faintly heard his mother screaming behind him and then everything went black.
