Written for my Paranormal25 150 Prompt Table. Prompt # 17. Amityville.

"Four years, Chloe." Manny announced in a solemn voice. "Four years."

Chloe looked around the house, not really paying attention to her father as he spoke.

"Chloe." Manny grabbed her and spun her around to look at him. "This is important."

She looked down at the hand on her arm an then up at his yellow eyes. "I'm sorry, I-I've just heard so much about the Amityville Horror that it's intriguing to be inside of the house where everything happened." She paused. "Why are we here, again?"

"Don't be intrigued! This was just some demons having a good time. Nothing serious. Nothing inventive. Nothing I would have come up with!" Manny declared, making his nose up at the house. "If it had been me to work on the Defeos and the Lutz...now that would have been a headliner!"

Chloe was sure of that. "I don't...sense anything...about this house."

"Of course not. No one lives here. Why would anyone stick around if there was no one to torment?" Manny wanted to know.

Chloe could see the logic in that. "Huh."

"It's...nice...though, don't you think?" The Lord of the Evils of Man's Heart asked, looking around. "I mean. They've done some superb renovating since the last time I was here."

"When were you here last?" Chloe grilled her father, curious. "Why were you here?"

"I saw the movie and got curious." He admitted, wincing.

The blonde couldn't help the laughter that escaped her lips at the thought of her father sitting down and watching the Ryan Reynolds horror movie.

"Do you know the things I have done and made men do?" Manny narrowed his eyes at her. "I have caused wars and massacres! I have made man give into all their baser evils. But do I get even a low budget direct-to-video movie made about me and my exploits? No. But these amateurs just do a little pig shapeshifting, wake up people repeatedly at the same time every night, throw in some flies and some retarded little room the dog doesn't want to go in and hollywood just eats it up! It's all show and no substance!"

Apparently, her father really wanted a movie.

"So. Given your passionate feelings concerning this...why are we here?" Chloe had to ask again.

Manny hesitated. "I wanted to get a look at the place now that it was renovated. I've always liked Long Island." He tapped the table, testing the wood. "Oak. My favorite."

Chloe blinked, remembering something about when Manny had teleported them to the front yard earlier. "This wouldn't have something to do with the For Sale sign outside? Would it?"

Manny was silent.

Chloe's lips began to morph into an amused smile. "Dad! You're considering buying this place, aren't you?"

"Well...you and Sam have integrated yourselves into the human world, and I'm not too proud like Azazel to compromise." Manny replied. "If you want to come and visit me, you need a tangible place you can say you went. To your 'dad's' home. And I really like the renovating they've done." He motioned to the room once more. "And it's only 1.15 million."

"Only 1.15 mil?" Chloe teased.

"It's Dutch Colonial overlooking the canal." Manny announced, as if this explained it all. "The renovations."

Chloe giggled. "It is nice." She tapped a finger to her chin. "And from outside, it looks like it has evil eyes."

"You noticed!" Manny grinned brightly.

The young demoness giggled, shaking her head at her father. "Manny, if you want to spend that money on this place, I say go for it."

"I'm thinking of giving you and Sam Missy's room." Manny announced, arm around her shoulder as he began to move her up the stairs. "That's where Lutz supposedly saw the demon pig's red eyes glaring down at him from the window."

Her father's enthusiasm was engaging, and Chloe allowed him to give her a tour of the place, listening to him recount everything that'd supposedly happened in each room.

He'd apparently watched the movie more times than he was willing to admit.

And maybe read the book as well.

In the end they were in the Master bedroom.

"I think Sam would like this place." Chloe announced. "If you buy it, we'd come up here for our next vacation. I mean, it's not like we have anywhere else to go. John doesn't speak to Sam after-well-and Dean-he still speaks to him but it's somewhat strained. Bobby's always the same-you gotta love him despite his being a hunter and all."

Manny's expression fell as he sat down on the bed. "Chloe. It's been four years."

"I know." She smiled, sitting down on the bed next to him. "Sam's just got his undergraduate degree and he's thinking of taking the next three years in Harvard. He's doing so incredibly well and-."

"Three-Chloe!" Manny snapped, grabbing her shoulders and shaking her. "You're talking about three more years."

"I...know." She frowned at him. "Are you feeling okay, dad?"

Manny opened his mouth.

Chloe's phone rang.

Pulling it out of her pocket she smiled when she saw the caller I.D. "Give me a sec." Standing, she went towards the window and looked out. "Hey baby."

"Where are you?" He sounded displeased.

"Manny came to visit me." She replied, tracing a pattern on the window's glass with her finger. "Apparently he's looking into buying realty, and he took me to see one house in particular."

"Oh." His tone calmed immediately once he knew whom she was with. "Tell him hi for me."

"Dad," Chloe turned slightly to look at him. "Sam says hi."

Manny nodded. "Return the favor."

"Manny says hi back." Chloe returning her gaze out of the window. "He's actually looking at the Amityville house. You have to see it, it's beautiful."

"The Amityville house?" Sam's surprise was audible.

"Yep." Chloe nodded, grinning. "How was your night out with Dean?"

Dean had come into town to see his baby brother, and Chloe (who wasn't very comfortable with him) had been all too glad for Sam and Dean to go out drinking together.

"Fine. We drank at the bar across from his motel room, and he told me about how his hunting and whoring was going. I told him about you and studying." He took in deep breath. "I got a little worried when I came home and you weren't there. I've gotten used to coming home to seeing your smile. Not having you there to greet me...made me anxious. Especially since you hadn't told me you had any plans for tonight."

"Aw, did you think I'd left you?" She teased.

He grumbled. "You were a succubus once. I have to keep an eye on you."

The blonde bursted out into laughter.

He chuckled.

Manny just watched them.

"It's still kinda early." Chloe pointed out, glancing down at her watch quickly. "Why'd you two call it a night?"

"Tired." Sam sighed.

Chloe frowned. "You're always tired. You study too hard."

"I know." Sam yawned loudly. "You coming home soon?"

"You're such a baby." She laughed. "I'll be there soon. Just go to sleep already!"

"I'll try." He yawned. "Love you."

"Love you too." Chloe smiled before hanging up, turning to her father. "He's such a baby!"

"Chloe." Manny's face was serious. "We need to talk."

That was never good.

Taking in a deep breath, Chloe made her way to the bed and sat down. "Are you okay, dad?"

"Chloe, I failed to mention this before because I didn't believe there was a reason you'd need to know." The demon began. "But you've been together for four years and Sam hasn't decided yet. I was so sure the demon in him would make him choose you and eternity long before now-but it's four years and it's already beginning to affect him."

"Affect him?" She whispered.

"Chloe." He reached over and placed his hand on hers. "You're a purebred demon. You're different. You're killing him."

Her eyes widened in horror. "What?"

"A purebred demon can't be with a human more than two years, or they drain them of their life energy. Sam has been the exception because he's a hybrid, but you've said so himself, he's tired all the time now. The drain is starting to affect him." Manny's gaze was firmly on her face. "If, before this year is up, Sam doesn't choose of his own free will to become a purebred demon, you're going to have to leave his side...or you will kill him."


"I don't make the rules, my child. It's just how things are." Manny interrupted. "If you love him, you will have to leave him when the time comes."


Later that night Chloe laid in Sam's arms in their bed, thinking about everything her father had said.

She turned in Sam's arms, gazing at his sleeping face.

"I love you."

He didn't answer, deep in sleep.

Chloe reached up and cupped his face. "I love you."

But what if it wasn't enough?

What if he didn't choose to give into the demon in him?

What if he chose to be human instead?

Could she really leave his side?

The blonde leaned forwards and pressed a kiss to his forehead.

Yes, she could.

If it meant he'd live.

"I love you."

Okay this was awesome. I'm normally not much of a Chlam fan but you've made me love them. I really hope you continue this. And hopefully bring in some Dean/Chloe/John interraction. I would abolutely love that. And can I just say that I love Manny in this chapter. *sighs*
27th-May-2010 05:04 am (UTC)
I would like to at *least* get some Chloe/Dean interaction, somehow I just see John trying to *kill* Chloe if they were to interact. o.O
27th-May-2010 06:30 am (UTC)
True. Very true. *sighs dramatically*
27th-May-2010 07:05 am (UTC)
Poor Chloe. Is there going to be a sequel? This was very painful to read and I wonder if Sam would crossover the moment he realized he was losing Chloe.
27th-May-2010 12:41 pm (UTC)
There *will* be a sequel! Maybe even two :)
And that is a *very* good question my dear!!!!
27th-May-2010 08:02 am (UTC)
awwww that was so good. lol about her dad manny lol. grrr about john , at least dean is still talking to him and got to love bobby lol. so what will sam decide ? PPMS
27th-May-2010 12:41 pm (UTC)
Oh, I think I adore Manny, which is why I can't stop writing him. lol
27th-May-2010 12:12 pm (UTC)
I love that Manny wants to buy the Amityville house so that Sam and Chloe have a place to visit her dad--very sweet indeed.

But DAMN, why does there always have to be some demon rule that has the potential to ruin the happiness of my favorite couple?

Can't wait to see what happens next.

27th-May-2010 12:42 pm (UTC)
Because they are demons. It's just what they do. lmao
27th-May-2010 02:51 pm (UTC)
I've said it before, but Bobby's awesome is just super-awesome. He's like equal to the awesome of all three Winchesters put together. Not the pretty, but definitely the awesome.

I like the way you've got Dean and John's reactions to the whole thing, and Manny's 'thing' with the Amityville house was funny.

But . . . where's my Dean-envy that Sammy landed a succubus? I'm pouting here.
27th-May-2010 02:56 pm (UTC)
Yep, you are right! His awesomeness really *is* that awesome :D

Don't pout! *frantic*

You never know what might happen in the next installment! *especially since *I* never know what's going to happen in the next installment!*

I think I'm a little in love with Manny. We could get married and live in a renovated Dutch colonial. We'd have the perfect little life until I died from exhaustion.

And btw, from all his emphasis on the time passing I thought he was going into impatient-for-little-demon-grandchildren mode. Turns out Sam's dying instead. : (
27th-May-2010 07:53 pm (UTC)
haha. maybe you *shouldn't* marry and live with him. For survival purposes. lol

I'm sure Chloe was beginning to think the same thing as well!

I was just re-reading "Seducing Chloe Sullivan" the other day, thinking, "Man, this story is awesome, but I feel like there is still a little bit of heartwrenching drama to come from it."

I'm glad that we seem to be communicating across time and space, just in time for this nice little one-shot to coincide with the eve of my birthday! I'm intrigued, and always ready for more, you know, when you are ready to give us more...
28th-May-2010 03:28 am (UTC)
Apparently we are totally in sync, my dear friend!
Happy birthday ;)
28th-May-2010 10:53 am (UTC)
Thank you for the birthday wishes and the years of entertainment ;)

Now, if only I didn't have to go to work today... actually, we're getting birthday doughnuts today, so work should fly by in a sugared-fried dough-bread rush!

Oh, Tim Hortens, what would I do without you?

That being said, I would like to reiterate: great fic!

Oh my, this was a absolutely fantastic sequel! I can't believe Chloe's killing Sam!!!! Unintentionally, but still... How horrible for them. Incredible twist though :) I wonder if Chloe's going to tell Sam that he has to give into his demon or he'll lose her? I'm pretty sure if Chloe tells him, there will be no question about it-- He'll choose her hands down.

Manny... OMG, I LOVE him! *hugs* He's so adorable-- the big Lord daddy demon! Hehe. His obsession with the Amityville house and his watching the moving and wanting to buy it so Chloe and Sam could visit was so freaking hilarious!

Loved the little news about Dean and that he still talks/comes to see Sam. Aww. At least he's not acting like an asshat, unlike someone else! LoL.

Wonderful job on this, even with all the new angst you brought in! LoL. Again, thanks for writing!!!

I must admit it----Demon or not---I adore writing Manny.
25th-Sep-2014 06:56 pm (UTC)
I really really like Manny, you know? :)
And the house is so perfect for him lol
Poor Chloe, what a difficult choice she'll have to make (hopefully not lol)
25th-Sep-2014 07:52 pm (UTC)
Manny (and the other assorted demons) definitely became my favorite part of writing this series! All so cheeky and sassy!
