Summary: Chloe had only wanted time to herself without so many people who loved her worrying over her constantly. What she got instead was being stranded along with other passengers of her bus, a murderous biker gang, and Sam Winchester.
The attack was underway.
They'd used the spudgun to shoot flaming bottles filled with starter fluid at the barn, and after two or three unsuccessful shoots, one had hit its target, blowing up the barn and the motorcycles stationed inside. Only one motorcycle had managed to make it out in time, and the sound of that engine blazed through the night as gunshots rung wild, back and forth.
Annabel was up on the rooftop, along with Sam and the other 'snipers', while those on the ground were hiding behind different barricades, shooting back towards the bikers running towards them with murderous intent. The bikers mightn't have had their bikes anymore, nor most of the protection to hide behind like Chloe's group did, but the bikers were all good shots, which gave them a large advantage.
The one on the motorcycle charged, racing towards the barricade.
"Son of a bitch!" Yarbro yelled.
Chloe, down below with the others, watched as the motorcycle zoomed over the barricade, shooting into their safe haven.
She pulled out her hand gun and shot.
The man fell off the motorcycle before it hit the ground, wheels turning uselessly.
Shoving the warm nuzzle down her waistband, Chloe snatched the shotgun from the side of the motorcycle and pumped it, shooting at the biker who was climbing up the cars.
A cry echoed behind her and she turned to see a biker falling down onto the ground, an arrow piercing through his throat.
Chloe turned and waved a thanks at Annabel, who just nodded back and grabbed another arrow.
Righting the motorcycle, Chloe lowered the shotgun down the inside of the back of her shirt, the barrel tucked in the back of her pant's waistband, as she revved the engine and then took off, going out the same way the biker had zoomed in. Soaring through the air, Chloe pulled out her shotgun the second the wheels hit the ground, and she shot the approaching bikers.
The sound of approaching engines grew louder in the air.
A gun fired, and Chloe felt an aching agony in her shoulder as she was thrown from the motorcycle, tumbling to the ground.
The blonde remained on the ground for a moment, feeling the bullet lodged deep inside of her being pushed out slowly by her muscles and tissue regenerating. She clenched her teeth against the pain, palms down against the ground, and when finally the bullet tumbled to the ground she stood, pissed off.
The biker who'd shot her raised his gun once more, but another shot rang out and he collapsed, a bullet in his forehead.
Only Sam could have made that shot.
To her left, the last biker standing collapsed to the ground, gurgling up blood.
A cheer rose from the barricade.
Chloe didn't turned towards them, eyes narrowing, before she rushed towards a standing fridge and opened the door, yanking the shelves out. In seconds she entered the fridge and closed the door on herself, in time to hear the sound of the engines as the motorcycles of the rest of the biker family arrived, revving, stopping at the tree line. The blonde narrowed her eyes, letting them go feline and engaging her mutation so that her hearing bettered. The bikers were probably surveying the scene, shocked to see their own comrades dead all around them in the battle scene.
It was a grisly sight as the sun began to make it slow trek across the heaven, shedding light on the massacre below.
Chloe took in a deep breath.
They didn't have time to escape, and they'd wasted a lot of the ammunition on the few bikers from before.
From the sound of the engines, these were a lot more than the ones before.
They weren't going to make it.
Gunshots rang out as the motorcyclists took off, charging, coming closer and closer.
Everyone in the barricade must be so scared.
Annabel or Maudie might be crying.
They had to know that there was no way they could come out of this alive.
The motorcycles began racing across Chloe's hiding place, the reverberations shaking the ground.
Chloe counted, swayed slightly with the fridge, and then she rammed her shoulder into the side, sending the fridge tumbling sideways into the path of the bikers. It was hit before it even hit the ground, and she grunted as the unsuspecting bikers hit the fridge and hit each other's bikers, explosions happening all around them.
Those behind stopped, those ahead continued on.
Chloe was bruised, yet safe in the fridge.
The gunshots continued.
She turned, grunting, before kicking the door. It connected with one of the fallen biker's knocking him in his head, and limiting the space she had to squeeze out of.
Cursing the fact that she wasn't reed thin, Chloe pushed against the door, grunting, when finally something cracked and it swung open.
Rolling out into the open, she ignored the broken neck of the man on the ground and looked around.
Motorcyclists were everywhere, shooting, being shot at.
And there were more around her.
The only thing keeping the biker's back was the improv molotov bombs beings shot at them by Mr. Vargas' spud gun.
A couple circled Chloe, snickering, making one huge mistake.
They thought she was the prey.
And this time, when the long blades descended from her palms and she clenched her hands around the handles, they'd been expected.
The biker's eyes widened in horror and confusion.
"Who's the prey now?" Chloe grinned, twirling the identical katanas before throwing one at the nearest biker.
It pierced his helmet, and then vanished into golden glitter.
There was a snarl, and then something threw itself at another biker, toppling them over, blood spurting wildly.
Lois turned towards them, snarling, face covered in blood, fangs visible behind her curled lips...her eyes flashing red in bloodlust.
Chloe, hands empty, pulled out the shotgun she'd stuck in the front of her jeans waist, and shot the remaining bikers.
Lois stood, licking her lips as the blood. "Why do you always get into these kinda messes?"
Chloe grinned. "Good luck?"
Lois laughed, going to hug her tightly before pulling away. "Since when do you have katanas coming out of your palms?"
"Since when do you have fangs?" Chloe countered.
The cousins grinned.
Another molotov bomb exploded.
Chloe frowned as she went to the dead around her, pillaging their weapons. "Lex on his way?"
"Surprised he's not here now." Lois replied, patting the grenades on her belt. "Remember that game we like to play?"
"Who's the better predator?" Chloe asked, looking up with a grin.
"I'm about to score me some more points." Lois grinned, before rushing away.
Chloe grinned, shook her head, and grabbed a motorcycle.
Maudie screamed as two of the bikers who'd breached their walls threw her to the ground, intent obvious.
Sam turned the shotgun towards them and fired, but it clicked empty.
Cursing, he rolled down the side of the roof and fell the rest of the way down. The noise of his descent caused the bikers to look in his direction, but they still weren't fast enough for him as he stood and barreled into the first one, knocking them both to the ground. In seconds he'd pulled the gun out of the biker's hand and used it to shoot the other, before the gun was kicked out of his hand by the one on the ground, and Sam found their roles reversed, the biker straddling him, hands around his neck.
Maudie screamed and jumped onto his back, her fingers digging into the biker's eyes.
As soon as the biker removed his hands from around Sam's throat to try and tear Maudie's fingers away, Sam had moved, yanking the biker's knife from its hilt and driving it up into his throat.
Maudie cried as she let go of him, the biker gurgling up his own blood, blade visible as his mouth opened.
Sam kicked him down, yanking the knife out as he turned and threw it at the biker who'd been coming up behind him
The blade imbedded itself deep into the biker's gut, causing him to scream as he fell to the ground.
Sam walked up to him and with a swift movement the sound of his neck breaking echoed in his head.
Screams and explosions sounded through the land.
Sam didn't understand how the whole world couldn't smell the death.
Duke lay motionless, dead, in the corner.
Mr. Vargas was solely in charge of the spun gun now.
!" Annabel screamed.
He looked up in time to see her body tumbling down the side of the roof, and he caught her with a grunt of pain.
It was a good thing she was light as a feather.
Annabel looked up at him, eyes wide. "Thanks." She scrambled out of his arms before pointing to the left. "Someone's arrived! She's fighting with Chloe! I think she's like her!"
Sam looked up at that, going in the direction Annabel was pointing.
There, in the fields, he could see a brunette dressed in black, as if she were some special operative or something.
She was attacking the bikers on foot, her movements and fighting style like that of an animal.
She-she picked up a motorcycle-and swung it at a biker racing towards her.
Sam's mouth fell open.
Chloe rode on a motorcycle, slowly, shakily standing onto the seat as it continued to race towards bikers shooting at her.
The blonde backflipped off of the seat, landing behind the motorcycle on her knees, palm down in front of her on the ground. She then pulled out her gun and shot the motorcycle as it closed in on the others, causing a large explosion that rocked the earth.
A biker aimed at Chloe from behind, but the brunette had noticed this and pulled out a...was that a grenade?...from her belt and threw it at him, an explosion tearing him apart and causing his blood to spurt everywhere before he could even pull the trigger.
Suddenly the heavens erupted in noise, and Sam looked up as three military helicopters soared above, shots being fired on the bikers below.
Men in black suits jumped out of the helicopters and landed below, shooting and subduing.
The bikers found themselves in a retreat, but the men with the suits and the masks were efficient, and the bikers really didn't have a chance.
Sam watched as one of the men, shouldering an incredibly large gun, tore off his mask, looking around the chaos.
Chloe froze where she was, and then she smiled unlike anything Sam had seen, before racing towards the man and jumping into his arms, legs locked around his waist and arms around his neck.
The man dropped his gun and held her to him, closing his eyes tightly as he held her as if she was the most precious thing in this world.
Sam looked between them and gulped, knowing he'd once held Jessica like that.
The brunette warrior grinned brightly as she watched Chloe and the newcomer, before she jogged up to them and rubbed the man's bald head affectionately.
"Are we...saved...?" Annabel asked, confused.
Maudie came forwards with Mr. Vargas, who'd apparently been shot in the shoulder.
"The others?" Sam frowned, thinking of Desmond and...
Maudia shook her head, tears in her eyes.
Sam looked down.
Chloe finally let go of the man and stood once more, grabbing his hand, before motioning towards the barricades.
She led him and the brunette towards the survivors, the masked men taking care of the rest of the bikers.
As Chloe looked up at the man by her and smiled, Sam smiled, remembering how Jessica would smile like that at him too.
Apparently, life did go on.
When Lex Luthor was involved, no one really asked questions, and this was one of those times. The police took the remaining bikers away, took statements from Maudie, Sam, Annabel, and Chloe...and basically ignored Lex's little army. Everyone was taken to the hospital and examined except Chloe. When Lex announced she didn't need to be checked the police neither the paramedics insisted otherwise.
They knew better than to question him.
Chloe sat down next to Sam in the hospital after making sure that the others were all fine and being taken are of.
Sam had been stitched up and gotten in contact with his brother Dean, who was driving to pick him up as they spoke.
Chloe eyed him curiously. "So, what's the plan from hereon?"
"Truthfully?" Sam asked, giving her a sideways look. "I don't know."
She turned in the seat, hugging her knees to her chest. "I thought you were going to join your father in the hunt for Azazel."
He nodded, leaning forwards, resting his elbows on his thighs. "I still am going to kill that demon for what he did to my mom and to...to Jess." He cleared his throat. "I just-I can't let the hunt consume me, like it consumed my father. I could have died, and the last words I said to both my father and my brother were angry, hurtful ones."
Chloe was silent, letting him speak.
Letting him vent.
"You said you went through something similar with that guy you loved." Sam paused before looking at her. "I want to be able to smile at someone else the way you do when you look at your friend."
"Friend?" Chloe asked, confused.
Sam smiled crookedly and motioned to where Lex was talking to Lois, poking her forehead with his finger in a teasing gesture.
Lois grumbled something and folded her arms over her chest, sticking her tongue out at him.
Chloe grinned, biting down on her bottom lip.
"That smile." Sam pointed at her. "I wanna be able to smile that smile again."
She sent him a pensive look before reaching over and placing a hand on his shoulder. "One day you will, and she'll be a lucky woman."
He ducked his gaze and smiled, nodded. "I would like to think so."
Chuckling, Chloe reached over and pressed a kiss to his lips. "I still like how you smell."
"Huh?" Sam blinked, looking up at her in confusion.
"Sammy?" A male voice called, worried.
They turned to see a handsome blonde guy walking hurriedly towards them.
"Dean." Sam stood.
Chloe left the brothers as they hugged, and made her way to where Lois and Lex were waiting for her. She smiled up at them, feeling warm and secure as Lex's arm went around her shoulders and pulled her to him.
"Ready to go?" Lois wanted to know. "'Cause I'm hungry."
Lex laughed, shaking his head. "You're insatiable."
Chloe leaned into him, wrapping an arm around his waist. "All the boys tell her that."
Lex looked traumatized, while Lois grinned in approval.
Shaking her head at them, Chloe followed them as they made their way to the helipad, where the helicopter was waiting on them. "My caltrop thingy has manifested, by the way."
"Really?" Lex asked, surprised.
"Does this have anything to do with you becoming Wolverine?" Lois wanted to know, skipping besides them.
"Wolverine?" Lex raised an eyebrow.
Chloe laughed, and then began to explain.
