Summary: Chloe Sullivan had a normal-ish life before the circle and John Blackwell turned her life upside down and gave new meaning to the unexplained weirdness that goes on in Smallville. Now life's a witch, she's a part of a circle she's not too sure she wants to be bound to, and not only do they have to worry about Witch-Hunters, but unknowingly to them another circle is on the hunt too.
Wanna thank tenshinrtaiga for betaing!

Diana and Greg both gasped as they opened their eyes, turning to stare at the other, breathless. They could see the same wide-eyed, terrified look on the other's face, not needing to ask if the other had Seen the same thing.

Cassie, Whitney, Faye and Zatanna were on watch from the hidden hole in the ground Zatanna had taken them to where they could keep an eye on the enormous Temple and yet be relatively unseen. It wasn't a hundred percent safe though and they'd had to fight some of the creatures already. It hadn't helped when Greg and Diana had both spazzed out on them, but considering that both had psychic connections with Chloe, the four remaining had complained but kept an eye on the two unconscious brunets lying on the dirt whilst also keeping a look-out for creatures that might be stalking them, and also keeping an eye on the Temple.

"That bastard," Greg grumbled as he stumbled to his feet, helping a shaky Diana to hers as well.

Cassie turned towards them. "What? That guy? Is he hurting Chloe?"

Whitney shook his head. "I'd taste her blood if it was being spilled."

Faye blinked at Whitney. "What?"

"He's a Sanguine." Zatanna motioned to the design on his palm. "It's rare, yes, but as a Prophet, you should know that."

Faye looked insulted. "I'm still new at this whole Prophet thing, okay?"

"And me at the whole Cyclops thing." Greg said, deciding to add in his own honest admittance.

Zatanna looked between them before her gaze went to Diana and Cassie.

"I've been the Eye for a while, but that was when she was a Balcoin and it's fading." Diana made a face.

Cassie sighed. "I'm not really anything… position wise…"

Zatanna groaned, closing her eyes. "We're all going to die."

"Look, no one's keeping you hogtied to us. I'm still not even sure who you are, why you've tagged along, or why we're trusting you." Faye raised an eyebrow. "So if we're no good for you and you want to go on your merry little way, maybe back to your cozy little cave, then it's fine by me."

Zatanna looked away, silent.

Whitney ignored the two girls, turning to Greg and Diana. "What did you two see?"

"Smallville's being attacked," Greg announced, fists clenched. "His people are killing everyone, not even just the witches. It's a massacre."

"This was a trap," Diana whispered. "This whole thing was to make sure we weren't there."

Thankfully, the Major hadn't seemed to realize what had happened.

"I was there with Rao when John Balcoin, Lionel Luthor and Janus Le Fay broke through the veil and came to offer him a deal." He shocked her to her bone, his blues trailing over her form slowly before raising to her face. "You look nothing like John."

Chloe licked her lips, hand to her head, the headache thankfully starting to die away. "If you didn't believe in his cause, why did you let him leave like that? Rao, I mean?"

"It wasn't that I couldn't go," he admitted, lips pursed slightly in thought. "Janus had brought his sister, her husband and child. Three trades. Meant Rao could bring two others with him and he wanted me to be one of those." He shook his head. "He's still doing it now, trying to tempt me to cross over, and a part of it is pissing me off, while another part of me…"

"Wait, what?" Chloe frowned. "What are you talking about?"

He paused, eyeing her with a smile. "You don't know."

"Don't know what?" Chloe stepped away from the wall towards him, going cold.

"A Royal can't just leave here," he replied evenly. "To leave, they have to trade places with someone from the place they are going, someone who has only freshly arrived and isn't bound to the Royal's magic." He smiled, showing a hint of fangs. "It's why those two girls are here and why I have sent them to die. Rao sent them to this realm to act as Trades, for you… and for me."

Chloe shook her head, refusing to believe what she was hearing. "No."

"You really didn't know." He eyed her. "So when you were protecting them before… it wasn't because you were protecting your insurance to get back home."

"Of course not!" Chloe snapped at him, clenching her fists tightly at her sides, unable to believe what she'd just learned, still shaking her head. "I'd never-! That monster!" She hated herself for being weak, for the tears she could feel in her eyes at the horror of the truth that was hitting her right now. If she left, she'd have to trade with someone. Diana or Cassie. She could never do something like that! Never! But she needed to help her friends and family in Smallville, and to do so, she needed to leave here. How could she do that and yet not leave either Diana or Cassie behind? She… she couldn't… "He's a monster." The truth of the matter hit her hard, the girl raising her greens to stare at the Major, who looked surprised as one lone tear fell down her pale cheek. "You're all monsters."

He cleared his throat, focusing his features into a sneer. "You're one of us."

"I'm nothing like you," she promised him, horribly calm as she moved towards him slowly. "You don't understand because you're a lizard. And I've only just realized that. You might look human right now, but you're not. You'll always be cold blooded, chasing after the sun." She saw an odd expression cross over his features, almost like, for a split second, he wanted to take a step back, but he wasn't the type of man to back down so he kept his ground and stood still. "Do you want me to show you one of the reasons why Rao is so fascinated with humans and our world?" She trailed a finger down his shirt, feeling her magic activate in her stomach and yet keeping it at bay as she stared up at him through her eyelashes. "Don't you ever wonder, in the darkest moments of the night, Major, why Rao just can't get my kind and my world out of his system?"

His head was tilted down towards her, his lips parted slightly as he gulped. He cleared his throat, looking away. "I-"

Chloe trailed her finger along the belt of his immaculate outfit, curling and dipping the digit in, using it to pull herself in closer as she brought their bodies near. A part of her was worried as hell because her magic had been acting wonky ever since she'd entered this realm, case in point: her ever trusty shield just shattering, but the blonde pushed away those doubts and instead focused on the magic bubbling in the pit of her stomach, on the fact that the scales on his cheekbones had emerged, even if his eyes had remained human in appearance.

"You have, haven't you?" she whispered, trailing both hands slowly up his toned chest, a gasp escaping her when his hands gripped her hips.

The flames changed from purple to blue, staying blue.

"Do you believe that I do not see this as some sort of trap of yours?" he asked, even as he tightened his grip on her hips. "You are planning on somehow escaping, using your feminine wiles against me. And your magic as well." He pulled her tighter against him so that she could feel his hardness. "You are used to boys, do not play with men because we can't be trifled with that easily."

She scoffed, although she had to admit she was intimidated.

"What's so funny?" He raised an eyebrow.

"That word you used: 'men'." She raised an eyebrow, having to admit that this male's perceptiveness both intimidated yet spurred her on even more. "You're no man."

"You're right. I'm much more than a mere man." He eyed her, a small smile on his lips, far from the offended snarl she'd expected. "I'm curious as to what your plan is and how exactly it is to be implemented. I'll play."

He was all sorts of contradictions, and it confused her, and yet he was willingly going into a trap, assured that he would come out of it unscathed. She wasn't going to complain about that. "Okay, then. Let's play."

Rao smiled at the screens as the Le Fay, Luthor and Sigan Houses joined the Tentagel House; their Clan utterly destroyed, only a few survivors scattered to the wind. It wouldn't be too hard to locate the few survivors in time and execute them. Those screens disappeared from the air, leaving only the screens showing the Wylt and Balcoin Houses grasping to hold on, but they were fighting a losing battle and before the sun came up, victory would be his.

"What sort of joke is this?" Caleb's dad asked, looking at the crumbled boulders blocking the entrance to the caves. "Why would you drag us here to this? To die?"

Van narrowed his eyes, unable to understand anything that was happening, but knowing one thing. "There has to be a reason why Chloe said we had to get in there."

"How are we going to do that?" Dan wanted to know. "Those boulders look heavy."

Deputy Gary Watts began rolling up his sleeves. "With some good old fashioned work."

"Out of the way, hon," Martha Kent announced as she, Nell Potter, Lana Lang and a couple of the others arrived, holding their hands out towards the rocks, whispering softly, the rocks slowly beginning to move out of the way little by little.

Deputy Gary Watts' eyes widened and his lips parted in shock, just like everyone else in the group who didn't seem to have magic, and that number seemed to be shrinking considering that Tina and Justin shared looks before joining Martha's side, helping out.

Van just watched, shaking his head, unable to believe just how much he hadn't known about the people in his hometown.

"Is this the part where you kiss me and show me how much better the human female is to the Dragon female?" the Major asked, eyebrow raised, voice annoyingly calm despite the fact that she could feel he wasn't as unaffected as his voice portrayed. "Because to be honest, I do not see the appeal. You are much smaller, much weaker, physically. I'd have to be careful while rutting in you, always cautious not to tear your fragile human body." He tilted his head to the side. "And with you, I could only mate while in this form. It limits the… fun."

She was blushing, damn it! She was supposed to be seducing him, not letting the Major or his words get reactions out of her like this.

The girl forced her lips into a smirk. "You obviously have no imagination, Norbert." She was giving him a name since he hadn't given her one to call him by and calling him "Major" was getting weird. "And anyway, you mightn't even have to worry about going easy on me." She pressed up on her tiptoes, bringing their faces closer, staring at his parted lips. "Who says that in human form you're big enough to tear me?"

He paused before letting out a huffed laugh, shaking his head. "Those are fighting words."

Heart racing in her chest, Chloe brought her lips a breath away from his. "Or maybe I'm challenging you to prove me wrong."

He chuckled darkly. "You, challenge me?"

"Worried?" she whispered, shadows dancing around them in the room. "Norbert?"

He chuckled once more. "What has the Council done to me?" With that, he closed the distance between them and kissed her, lifting her easily, the girl wrapping her legs around his waist as she kissed him deeply.

The flames on the torches in the room began to flicker from different hues of blues and purples before adding scarlets and hints of orange. They were a kaleidoscope of colors.

Chloe felt her Enthrallment ignite in her stomach, the blonde pushing it upwards as something exploded inside her and she combed her fingers through his dark hair. He held her up with one hand cupping her ass, the other curved behind her head and holding her captive as he kissed her as if they were on the battlefield. Everything about this man was military, even his kiss. She was a battle he fought, a war he waged, the Major allowing her to slide down slightly. Chloe gasped into his kiss, clutching him tighter, having been scared he would let her fall, but instead, he'd only let her fall enough to feel him and she blushed scarlet into the kiss.

This guy's tactics were deplorable! But damn it, they were working! She was thrown off her game, the sensations electrifying her body, leaving her mind a white hot haze and ruining her concentration. It only made her try harder, searching and connecting, forcing the Enthrallment upwards, towards her throat, letting out a stuttered cry when she felt a clawed finger trailing down the back of her silk dress. It was all she could do not to remove her lips from his, to keep kissing him as she arched into the feeling.

Claw marks began appearing up and down the walls of the room.

Just as she felt her Enthrallment reach her lips, Chloe was pushed off of him, the girl crying as she fell through the air before her back hit the bed. She looked around her, disoriented, not having realized that he'd been moving them towards it this whole time. She stared up at him through her eyelashes, lips parted as he stood at the side of the bed just staring at her. She'd been so close, damn it! And yet...

Behind him, the Balcoin symbol flickered even brighter, reminding her how important it was that she Enthrall this guy and get him to help her get out of here, get to her friends, and get to a portal back home.

Chloe's gaze returned to the handsome Major, pushing back the fact that she was trembling and the fact that, when he touched her, her head went numb, the girl smirking up at him. "Scared yet?"

The odd expression on his face vanished as he chuckled, shaking his head. "I was about to ask you the same thing." He slowly lowered himself on top her on the bed. "I have never rutted in this form before, and never with a human. I was not trying to scare you earlier when I mentioned having to control myself out of an effort not to tear you."

"You really are a military guy, aren't you?" she taunted, because damn it, he was intimidating her again. "You have no manner of pillow talk." And with that, she reached up and curled her hand behind his head, yanking him down to her as she kissed him desperately as his body covered her and his weight pinned her on the bed.

If Rao thinks that Chloe would just abandon her sisters he is sadly mistaken.

Ok I need to know who to picture for the Major/Norbert. Or is it a surprise?
12th-Sep-2013 04:47 am (UTC)
His identity will be revealed... later... although I'll slowly drop hints here and there.
13th-Sep-2013 01:14 am (UTC)
Is it someone from the show like Lucas, Adam or Jason?? Or is it someone new like Mikhail and Byron?
13th-Sep-2013 01:18 am (UTC)
Actually, Mikhail and Byron are both from the show as well :) I just made sure to get characters from early seasons!
