Summary: The whole world now knows about vampires, and most of it has been compelled by Klaus, via the "coming out" broadcast. With the Salvatores and the Winchesters unable to see eye to eye on anything, Lois learning the way of the vampire hunter, and someone from the past returning to 'help', things are about to become crazy. And, of course, E!News is happily covering it all.

"So, do I smell a new 'ship in the making? What would they even be called?" Dean turned to Sam as Bela reached them and plonked herself onto a stool. "Belamon?" He suddenly snickered. "They sound like a pokemon."

Sam rolled his eyes and yet was smirking as well. "They kinda do."

Bela ignored them, ordering a beer and bewildering the uppercrust-looking waiter who stammered before nodding and saying he'd go and see if he could find one. She then turned and looked at both brothers, giving them a two-finger salute, smile on her face. "So, my pretty boys, I see your dates have been stolen from you and so you've been reduced to having to comment on the status of my date. How the heartthrobs have fallen."

Dean rolled his eyes. "Remember who got you the date."

Sam raised an eyebrow at Dean. "Me." He then turned to Bela. "You having a good time? Damon can be a bit of a dick."

"I've discovered that." Bela flashed Sam a smile. "It's made the night much more enjoyable." She suddenly snickered. "He passed Kristen Stewart our empty champagne flutes before dragging me off onto the dance floor! That alone made my night!"

Sam chuckled and shook his head. "You need to get over the time you thought she snubbed you."

"I am so over it." Bela rolled her eyes. "You should've seen her face, it was so shocked! She's not going to forget who I am now!"

Dean snorted in amusement as he put down his own empty flute of champagne and started to walk away.

Bela made a face. "Where do you think you're doing? I haven't finished!"

"I'm going to find the bathroom," he flung over his shoulder with a careless wave. "Bore Sam with your pettiness."

Bela rolled her eyes before she turned her gaze to Sam. "He still annoyed that they forced him to take Lois?"

Sam nodded with a smirk.

Bela chuckled and accepted the beer from the waiter when he finally returned. "Have you seen your father yet? I heard he was going to be here."

"Yes, he's been over in that corner watching Lois dancing with Kol, and getting exceedingly drunk." Sam gave a dark sigh. "I'm two sips away from going over there and taking his drink away before he causes a scene."

John, visibly tipsy, stumbled slightly into one of the women in his circle of friends.

Sam sighed as he downed his glass. "That's my cue."

Bela smirked. "Oooh, I'm not going to miss this!" She hopped off of the stool and tagged along.

"You know, for a human, you don't dance horribly."

"Look at that, a half-way compliment." Ric raised an eyebrow as they continued to glide on the dancefloor, the hunter still not sure what the Vampire Princess' gameplan was five dances in. She hadn't requested he change with Stefan yet and while his legs were getting a little tired of the continuous dancing (and he'd never really liked to dance in the first place) he didn't complain as he tried to figure out what was really going on here. He knew that there was more going on than met the eye, machinations were going on beneath the surface, and everything they saw wasn't what it appeared. "Two more dances and you might even crack a smile and not look like you're forced to be here."

Her expression darkened and she gazed away as he led her in a twirl. "You should know by now that whatever Niklaus wants, Niklaus gets, it doesn't matter what anyone else feels about it."

Ric frowned slightly. "His brothers and sister included?"

Rebekah's gaze rose to his face in silence before she looked away once more. "Where did you learn to waltz?"

Ric's frown grew. "I learnt it for my wedding."

The Vampire Princess' gaze returned to him quickly, wide in surprise. "I did not know you were married."

He let out a dark chuckle. "I'm not anymore, she's dead."

"Oh." Rebekah nodded slowly and didn't offer him any condolences on the loss of his wife, instead her gaze went to where her brother Finn danced with his date, a pretty redhead. "I hear that you are in cohorts with Finn's little harlot."

Ric's grip on Rebekah's hand tightened. "I would appreciate it if you did not refer to Sage like that."

"Why not?" Rebekah smirked in dark amusement as her gaze returned to him. "She calls me an 'elitist bitch'."

Well… That was true…

"He had a chance a hundred years or so, to be able to go back to her, and he chose not to." Rebekah's smirk was dark. "Do you want to know why?"

Ric eyed the Vampire Princess in his arms. "Why?"

She leaned in closer, her voice soft. "Why don't you ask Sage to tell you about the days leading up to Finn leaving with Niklaus? They might shed some light into the whole matter." She then pulled away, her lips tilted in a smirk.

The hunter eyed her in confusion, wondering what exactly Sage hadn't told him.

-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-

"You are taking this in relative stride." Klaus' voice was amused as he led Chloe slowly through the admittedly breathtaking garden. "I was expecting a non-stop explosion of questions and demands."

"I've been ordered by my boss, Perry White, to get some sort of an interview from you for my first article for Chloe & The Dead People since going on my 'sabbatical', so I can assure you, you'll be getting questions from me." She was fighting to remain calm, to not let her growing unease show as they moved further and further away from the building. "I figured, as you so graciously invited me here and then kidnapped my sire and my friend to make sure I came, you should have your questions and demands heard first." She let a beat go before adding: "It's only polite."

There was silence before he chuckled. "I agree." His gaze went to the moon as he took in a deep breath. "I will bring the vampires out of the moonlight, so to speak, and into the sunlight of a new era. We will no longer hide, lost and forgotten in the shadows and darkness, a figment of a child's nightmares. We should've never been reduced to myth and legend, but should've been what we were always meant to be-what we've always been."

"And what's that?"


Something churned darkly in Chloe's stomach as her fear made her try to bluff her way out of this. "I'm about to put a chink in that superior chain of yours then because I can't do what Katherine said I could. She was just trying to get me away from Stefan and Damon. I am faulty though in that I can't Compel people. I don't know where she got the part that I could instead Compel people who have Vervain in them. Maybe she made that assumption on the basis that I couldn't Compel people without Vervain."

Klaus smirked. "Is that so?"

"You don't believe me." She continued with the bluff. "Why else do you think I would come here in person to try and clear this whole thing up? Do you really think I'd be stupid enough to come here if I could actually do what she said I could? I'd be basically signing myself over to whatever nefarious plans you have for me."

He eyed her in dark amusement. "Now-now-nefarious is rather harsh, don't you think?"

Chloe bit her tongue to keep from answering that question honestly.

He seemed to realize that and snorted before his eyes shifted in Compulsion. "Answer the question."

A hiss escaped Chloe's lips as the Vervain inside of her body boiled.

Klaus shook his head. "I see, you've got Vervain in your system." He snorted. "No doubt Katerina taught you that little annoying trick." He paused. "How is dear old Katerina? We know each other very well you know."

"Probably explains why you seem to want to kill her," Chloe quipped, mouthy when she was unnerved. "So far all the men I know who knew Katherine at some point in their lives want her dead."

Klaus chuckled darkly. "Let's just say she knows how to leave an impression." He then stopped. "We're here."

Chloe looked up, eyes wide when she realized they'd reached the center of the maze-like gardens, and in the center was Elijah Mikaelson, and he wasn't alone. There was a human with him, and the human didn't look in good condition at all. He'd obviously been beaten up quite a bit and was bleeding, and it was only the fact that he was downwind from them why Chloe hadn't picked up the scent of blood as yet. Still though, she took a step backwards, not trusting herself or her still flimsy self-control when it came to the bloodlust.

Klaus didn't let her go too far though, his grip still on her looped arm as he pulled her forwards, a smirk on his face. "Miss Sullivan, let me introduce you to my ever-disapproving brother, Elijah."

Chloe's gaze rose to Elijah, who looked strikingly out of place, the picture of a proper gentlemen, who held on tightly to the bloodied human. "I'd like to say it's a pleasure to meet you but I have the distinct impression it won't be."

Elijah cleared his throat, an almost apologetic expression crossing his eyes before his gaze turned to Klaus. "He's ready."

"For what?" Chloe's gaze narrowed and slid to Klaus.

"To kill you in order to gain his freedom." Klaus was the picture of tranquility. "Unless you Compel him to not do so. And you can't stop him by any other means other than Compulsion or we will kill you."

Chloe licked her lips. "I told you that-."

He let go of her and stepped away. "Begin."

Chloe turned towards the man as he stood and glared at her, strong and determined despite his injuries, obviously a hunter. The Originals were calling her bluff and it was time to fold. She narrowed her eyes and tried to force the Compulsion. "Stop moving." But instead of working, the Vervain inside of her system reared up, boiling in her veins and causing her to cry out and double over in pain.

What was happening?

Was the Vervain in her body counteracting her ability?

The human came at her with a yell, swinging a machete she hadn't realized he'd had on him, almost managing to slice her head off of her neck.

Chloe cried as she stumbled back, the thought of fleeing eminent on her mind, but then she remembered that her friends and everyone were still in the gala and had no idea of what was going on. Plus, she couldn't run forever and this world was an Original World right now. She couldn't outrun that. She had to stand still and fight it. It was why she dodged another blow of the machete and tried the Compulsion again. "Stop moving."

Once more the Vervain inside of her system boiled, her veins acting like conduits, taking it all throughout her body and making the vampire trip as the pain magnified, the scent of her burnt flesh searing through the air and making her cry out. Her eyes burnt her horribly, momentarily fogging her vision and panic set in as she sped to the side, dodging a blow, running into Elijah as her eyes healed enough so that she could see her human attacker and evade his newest attack on her.

The dress, well, it was never gonna be the same again.

Chloe stumbled and fell to the ground, eyes wide as the human stood over her and brought the machete swinging down.

"You know, you should be on my side," the weak and annoying voice declared from inside the cell. "If there's anyone who understands doing what she must to get back her man, even when he doesn't want to be gotten back, it should be you."

Sage didn't look up from her book, and instead of answering merely turned the page.

Katherine was a persistent vampire though and didn't give up. "You're doing what you're doing to get Finn back."

"I'm doing what I'm doing to give Finn his freedom." Sage snapped her book shut. "If we get back together, that will be a bonus and I definitely wouldn't complain about it."

Katherine was at the bars, an eyebrow raised. "You still don't get it, do you?"

"Get what?" Sage glared.

"Finn's stopped fighting for his freedom because of you." Katherine rolled her eyes.

Sage's eyes widened and her grip on the book loosened. "That's a lie. I was there when Niklaus-."

"Sure, he might have been forced before everything went down, but there came a time later on when he was given a choice to stay or go, and he chose to stay with Klaus." Katherine was obviously enjoying this way too much. "And you're too blind to even realize it, much less why."

Sage tightened her grip on her book. "You're lying. Finn loved me, he turned me so that we could be together forever! He wouldn't have-!"

"When you were turned into a vampire by him, you were in love with him, weren't you?" There was almost an envious tone to Katherine's voice. "You were head-over-heels, crazy-stupid, no-one-else-in-the-world-for-you in love with him."

"Of course." Sage gulped.

Katherine shook her head. "Let me ask you this then, in all these years since you've been alone have you ever turned someone who was in love with you?"

"Of course not!" Sage glared at the younger vampire.

"Why not?" Katherine tilted her head.

"I had Finn." Sage hesitated.

"And…" Katherine raised an eyebrow.

Sage's eyes widened in horror as she finally realized what Katherine had been hinting at this whole time. "I am not sire-bound to Finn Mikaelson!"

"He believes you are, or at least that you were." Katherine leaned her forehead against the bars. "It's one of the reasons why he left you. Said you really didn't love him anymore, that it was the 'horrid' sire-bond that made you think you did. It's why he agreed to stay with Niklaus and leave you, so that hopefully, with time and distance away from him, such a rare malady might pass." She took in a deep breath. "It's very rare for a vampire to have a sire-bond with her Sire like werewolves with their Alpha, but it has been known to happen, especially if the human was in love with the vampire who turned her."

Sage stumbled back, her world rocked as she collapsed to her knees on the ground, a part of her breaking.

-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-

"Chloe's not going to like the idea of killing her, but I say she doesn't really have a say in it." Damon took a long gulp of his glass of bourbon. "Katherine's our sire and I say we get to waste her whenever we want to."

"I second that." Stefan nodded in agreement, taking a sip of his own drink. "She might have useful information, but I don't think she'd help us or that we could trust a word that came out of her mouth."

"No, we couldn't." Damon made a face. "I say we make Sage fry Katherine's brains to get as much info out of her as possible, and then we tear the skank's shrivelled heart out of her body."

"Sounds like a plan."

The Salvatores touched glasses.

Stefan took in a deep breath. "I'll talk to Chloe and get her to see things our way."

"Whatever." Damon rolled his eyes. "You'll have to tear her away from whoever Richie Rich is first though." The vampire then frowned when he realized that the dude she'd been dancing with was now with his two model twits. "She must have gone back to the Wonder Twins."

Stefan's gaze went to where Sam was arguing with his father in a corner of the room, the older man visibly intoxicated. Bela was next to Sam, watching with dark amusement and offering no sort of help whatsoever.

Stefan took a step forwards as he gazed around the ballroom, eyes narrowed as a dark sensation churned in his stomach. "Damon, where's Chloe?"

-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-

Rolling onto the side, Chloe heard the sound of the blade of the machete embedding itself deep into the ground, exactly where her neck would have been, and the adrenaline from her fear gave her the rush she needed to push up to her feet in the blink of an eye and turn towards the human, who was trying to yank the machete out of the earth. She wrapped an arm around her stomach and held her hand out towards the human, eyes narrowed, bracing for the pain as she waited for him to yank the blade out of the earth and turn to face her to try the Compulsion once more. "Stop moving."

The human not only didn't stop moving, but he changed his grip on the machete and threw it at her with a yell.

The pain of the Vervain erupted within her and burnt her eyes, fogging them over and leaving her blind. She cried out in pain, unable to see the machete flying towards her, when suddenly something slammed into her and sent her flying to the ground harshly.

The vampire was whoozy and confused, trying to blink as her eyes slowly healed themselves back, the sound of the human yelling as he raced towards her letting her know she didn't have much time-and then the scent of blood permeated the air.

Chloe's eyes widened as her greens finally healed enough to find Dean Winchester standing in front of her, bloody machete in his hand. He pulled it out of the chest of the human, who fell to the ground with a groan. "Dean?"

Dean tightened his grip on the machete, pale and yet determined, gaze on Klaus and Elijah as he held his hand out towards her. "I realized you weren't inside anymore and remembered an invitation to see the gardens."

Chloe placed her hand in his and accepted his help to her feet, the blonde's green gaze going to the Originals. "You shouldn't have come here."

"Really?" Dean snorted. "Because from where I'm standing, I just saved your life."

"Exactly." Klaus frowned as he eyed them. "You, a mere human, saved a vampire's life from another human." He shook his head in disgust. "Do you know how pathetic that is?" His gaze turned to Chloe. "You were right when you said Katherine was lying and that you are in no way what we were promised."

Chloe took in a deep breath and tightened her grip on Dean's hand, protective. "I tried to explain that to you before you gave me this pop quiz."

"You did, and we should have known better than to believe anything that came from Katerina Petrova." The Original gave a little nod, and a muscle jumped in his cheek before his gaze turned to Dean. "The human interfered in business that did not concern him or his kind." His smile was dark. "We told you what would happen should anything other than Compulsion befall the captive."

Chloe's eyes widened in horror. "You told me! Not Dean! He was only trying to protect me!"

"That does not matter, my word is law. What sort of ruler would I be if anyone could break my rules and not be punished?" Klaus smirked before his gaze turned to Elijah. "You know what to do."

Elijah hesitated for a second, took in a deep breath, before he nodded and in a split before had grabbed Dean by his neck and raised him high into the air and slapped the machete out of his hand. He stared up unfeelingly at the struggling human. "Any last words before I break your neck and make it seem like you had a drunken fall down the stairs?"

Dean clawed at the hand around his neck that was holding him up in the air like a ragdoll. "Fuck… you!"

Elijah gave a little shrug. "I've heard worse."

"DON'T!" Chloe screamed in a terror unlike any she'd ever felt before in her life as she reached out and placed her hand on Elijah's arm. The Vervain boiling inside of her burnt like hell but she pushed passed the blinding, agonizing pain and focused on Elijah as he turned to look at her. "Don't."

The vampire eyed her in silence.

"Elijah." Klaus sing-songed from behind them. "What are you doing? Break his neck already."

Elijah just stared at Chloe.

Encouraged, Chloe squeezed Elijah's arm and maintained eye contact as she fought against the agonizing, breath-taking pain of the Vervain boiling in her veins. "Please put him down."

Elijah shocked the hell out of her by wordlessly releasing his hold on Dean and dropping the human to the ground.

Dean coughed as he stumbled to his feet, hands to his neck.

"What the hell?" Klaus snarled as he stormed towards them before stopping. "Impossible." He cleared his throat. "Elijah, kill him."

Chloe turned her glare on Klaus. "No."

Klaus stared at her in wide-eyed awe, his lips half-curled as his gaze went to Dean and then to Chloe before they went to Elijah and the smile dropped before his gaze returned to Chloe. He seemed to be thinking something through, his eyes narrowed as he took in a deep breath, his tongue wetting his lips before he cleared his throat and stepped forwards. "Perhaps I did act a bit rashly."

Chloe blinked in surprise at the change in demeanor as she let go of Elijah and stepped away.

Dean picked up his machete and moved so that he stood slightly in front of Chloe, eyes narrowed on Klaus and Elijah, the latter who was shaking his head and who looked somewhat confused.

Klaus eyed his brother with unnerved, narrowed eyes, before he turned those eyes on Chloe, a calculating glint in his eyes before he smiled at her. "Do you know Ester's Coffee Shop in Hollywood Boulevard?"

Chloe frowned at the change in subject. "I've heard of it, but I've never actually gone there."

"Wednesday at 4:30 I have an opening, we can have our interview for your Chloe & The Dead People then so that you do not have trouble with your boss." Klaus' smile was pure charm. "We should be friends, Chloe Sullivan."

The blonde blinked, completely confused. "You just tried to kill Dean and I."

"I try to kill everyone at least once, my brothers and sister can attest to that, it practically makes you both family." He tsked and shook his head as both he and Elijah turned to leave and rejoin those in the party. "You can bring Mary Campbell's son along too if you'd like."

Dean's eyes widened in shock. "How did you know that Mary Campbell was my mother?"

Klaus smirked as he gazed over his shoulder at them. "Your pendant."

Dean's eyes widened as he looked down to realize that in the scuffle his pendant had become visible. "How did you know my mother?"

Klaus and Elijah had already disappeared into the shadows.

Dean turned to Chloe. "My mother knowing Sage, a vampire, is one thing-but the King of Vampires knowing mom well enough to know I was her son just because he saw this?" Dean looked up at Chloe, confusion in his eyes. "Just who the hell was my mother?" His gaze then went to where the dead human had been seconds ago only to find that the body had been moved, all that remained was the bloodstain from where he'd bled out. "I-I killed a man."

Chloe took in a deep breath as she reached out and hugged Dean tightly. "You saved my life."

Dean held onto her tightly, as if to life itself.

Chloe felt his grief, and it made her guilt grow, because if it hadn't been for her, he would never have known this sorrow.

And that's how Damon and Stefan found them.

"So, do I smell a new 'ship in the making? What would they even be called?" Dean turned to Sam as Bela reached them and plonked herself onto a stool. "Belamon?" He suddenly snickered. "They sound like a pokemon."

Pokemon!!! *cackle*

Holy crap!!! Chloe can compel an original!!

Chloe felt his grief, and it made her guilt grow, because if it hadn't been for her, he would never have known this sorrow.

And that's how Damon and Stefan found them.

ohhhh damn!! Poor Dean.

Holy crap...plot twist!! I did not see that coming so excellent job. So Chloe can compel originals and the originals knew Dean and Sam's mother. This fic just keeps getting better and better, I'm super sad that there is only one chapter left.
