Dean had grown up around dangerous situations so he knew them well…and this was a dangerous situation.
“Sam.” Chloe whispered, seeming unable to keep from uttering his name in a tone of voice that sounded half blissful and half terrified.
Sam’s murderous gaze slid off of the angels and landed on her, looking less murderous but more desperate, and that was still a dangerous thing in Dean’s books.
The younger Winchester took a step in Chloe’s direction, Chloe’s lips slowly turning up in a smile, when the dark angel stepped out in front of her, eyes narrowed on Sam. “Leave before I do something Miss Sullivan won’t particularly be happy about.”
“Uriel…” Chloe reached forwards and placed her hand on his shoulder.
Uriel turned slightly to look at her.
Sam growled and…and Dean wasn’t exactly sure what happened next, but in one blink Sam’s body clenched and he growled and the next time Dean blinked, Sam and Uriel were in combat.
Dean and Bobby pulled out their guns, not sure if they’d work on an angel and not able to get a clean shot anyway, both Sam and Uriel were going at it too fast.
“Cas---do something!” Chloe turned to the angel standing next to her, watching the fight with narrowed blue eyes.
“If I get involved it will be expected for us to eliminate the threat.” Cas warned her, looking torn.
The whole building shook as Uriel finally pinned Sam to the wall by his throat. Dean and Bobby made to go help him when Lois grabbed them from the back of their shirts and kept them back. “If you try anything you’ll get killed.”
“It’s my brother!” Dean snapped.
“Let Chloe deal with it.” Lois whispered urgently.
“I’m not going to let that tiny girl---!” Dean began.
“Let Chloe deal with it!” Lois repeated, jerking Dean back more violently.
Dean turned to Bobby, surprised to see him standing his ground, content to follow Lois’ instructions and let that tiny slip of a blonde, about the tiniest person Dean had ever seen, go up against an angeredangel.
“Uriel…” Chloe took cautious steps towards the angel as his tightened his grip on Sam’s neck, Sam gasped for breath, the black bleeding out of his eyes, pain on his every feature. “He doesn’t understand what’s going on, he felt threatened…let him go.”
“I’m sorry Miss Sullivan.” Uriel didn’t even look at her, a sneer of near enjoyment on his face as he observed Sam, something inside of Sam beginning to light up like when they killed demons. “But the situations has gotten out of hand and needs controlling.”
“Stop it!” Chloe snapped, desperation in her voice. “You can’t force exorcize him! The demon’s a part of him! You’ll kill him!”
Dean tensed up.
Uriel smirked. “Well, that would solve our little problem.” And his eyes narrowed further in concentration.
“Uriel!” Chloe growled, eyes going white, power gushing around her like wind. “Let him go!”
And the big bad angel let go of Sam and fell to his knees.
Everyone’s eyes widened, except for a smirking Lois, as Chloe’s glowing white eyes appeared for the first time, shocking them. The tiny little blonde stormed towards the fallen angel, who was gasping for breath, and looking up at her with wide eyed surprised, mixed with a good degree of fear.
Dean was froze in his place, unable to believe it.
She’d brought an angel to its knees---without even touching it!
“I told you that no one touches my friends---no one touches Sam!” She growled at him, not noticing Sam, who was now calm, the power Uriel had over him gone, watching Chloe in what could only be described as awed hunger. “I told you my conditions! And you broke them! You were going to kill him!”
Uriel tried to say something, but all that came out were mangled garbles.
“I told you---!” She hissed.
‘Cas’ appeared behind Chloe and placed a hand down on her shoulder. “Let him go.”
She turned her narrowed eyes on him.
The angel didn’t even flinch. “You don’t want to be known as a rogue who killed an angel.”
“He was going to kill Sam.” Chloe whispered.
Cas looked into her face. “Chloe, let him go.”
Chloe sighed, looking up into the angel’s eyes, before visibly relaxing.
Uriel leaned forwards, his palms on the floor, gasping for the air that finally entered his lungs.
Cas nodded approvingly at Chloe, squeezing her shoulder. “Good girl.”
Chloe gave the angel a small, crooked smile. “Stop being so smug you bastard.”
The angel smirked a little.
“And that is why, despite everything, heaven won’t dare even think of switching our liaison agent.” Lois grinned, quite pleased with how things had turned out. “Castiel’s the only one she will listen to when she gets in those states.”
“What the hell just happened, Lois?” Bobby asked Lois. “Since when can she do that? What exactly is ‘that’?
“Meet Chloe Sullivan.” Lois pointed to her cousin as if introducing them for the first time. “The greatest mystery in the universe, and heaven’s favorite little pet project.”
“Chloe.” Sam’s voice was gruff, like he hadn’t used it in years.
Chloe turned from Castiel at the sound, her back to Dean and them so they couldn’t see the expression on her face, but from the look on Sam’s Dean could guess that it was heartbreaking. Sam opened out his arms and Chloe ran into them, throwing her arms around his waist and hiding her face in his chest as his large arms encircled her protectively, holding her to him possessively, dropping a kiss to the top of her head before sending Castiel a quick glare.
Dean sighed and rolled his eyes at his brother’s insane jealousy when it came to the blonde.
Then again, he probably wouldn’t have liked it either if he’d finally found the woman of his life after she’d disappeared for three months, only to discover another man in her life with so much sway in her life and her decisions.
Dean might feel a little threatened too if he were in Sam’s shoes.
“You made a pact with heaven!” Uriel snapped as he stood, hand around his throat, which was probably still hurting him. “You broke it and you attacked a celestial agent!”
Chloe turned and glared at Uriel, eyes glowing faintly.
Sam’s eyes narrowed and darkened to that warning purple.
Uriel gulped, looking from one to the other.
“Actually,” Castiel stepped in the middle of a promisingly bad moment. “Chloe didn’t break her pact. She didn’t find Sam, she didn’t contact him, and she tried to do all in her power to prevent the reencounter from happening---even going as far as trying to seduce the elder brother.”
Sam’s narrowed gaze swung to Dean.
Dean winced. Gee, thanks Castiel.
“The Winchesters and Mister Singer came here on their own, and she had no part in this.” Castiel continued, stepping slightly so that he was standing in front of Chloe in a casual and yet very protective move. “If anyone has broken the pact, Uriel, it is you. We promised to not hurt Samuel Winchester, Dean Winchester, Bobby Singer, or anyone else a part of her past life, no matter what happened, if she kept to the conditions…and yet you were going to kill Samuel Winchester. Heaven has broken the pact. It is now null and void.”
Uriel’s eyes flashed with anger.
Chloe smirked, and it was purely evil, as she pulled out of Sam’s hold and went to stand next to Castiel, placing her hand on his arm. “That’s right, Uriel. Thanks to your little show of anger, we don’t have a contract anymore, and you can’t do anything about Dean because you broke it.”
The angel backed up in shock as he realized that to be true.
“But, thanks to my trust in Cas, I’ll agree to remain in liaison with heaven, just as long as he is in control of our meetings and activities, no other celestial interference or judgments on his decisions or anything else will be accepted.” Chloe continued.
Castiel sent her a surprised yet pleased look.
Uriel was shaking with his anger.
Sam was watching Chloe and Castiel with slight hurt, and not a little amount of insecurity as his gaze rested on where Chloe’s hand touched Castiel’s arm.
Chloe looked upwards the same time Castiel did, but unlike Castiel’s wince, Chloe was smirking. “Oh Uriel…someone isn’t too happy right now.”
Uriel winced as he looked up as well. “Oh brother.” And with that he disappeared.
Chloe smiled at Castiel before letting go of her hold on him and turning to Sam, hesitant. “Hi.”
“Hey.” He whispered, gaze on her face.
They continued to look at each other in rapt silence before Chloe threw herself at Sam and began to cry. Gone was the being who’d brought an angel to his knees, and now before them was a girl about to break down, holding onto Sam as if he were her lifeline.
Sam was shocked still for a moment before he closed his eyes and his arms went around her so tightly it must have hurt her but she wasn’t complaining, gripping the front of his shirt so tightly as if she was afraid he’d vanish.
Dean watched the transformation in his brother as Sam nuzzled the side of her head, taking in a whiff of her scent, closing his eyes at the feel of her silky hair against his cheek. As Sam whispered words into Chloe’s hair and she sobbed out responses that no one could rightly hear or understand, Dean saw Sam finally morph back into his stupid little brother.
Lois grinned as she talked to Bobby, introducing him to Castiel, giving Sam and Chloe the privacy they deserved.
Dean just couldn’t give that to them.
His smile widened as he folded his arms over his chest and watched the blissfully happy expression on Sam’s face.
Somehow things were going to be okay.
Even if they now had enemies in hell and heaven.
Sam pressed a trembling kiss on Chloe’s forehead and closed his eyes.
Three months without seeing her and he kisses her on her forehead.
The elder Winchester shook his head and turned to go and meet the angel.
When Sam grilled Dean about this supposed ‘seduction’ on Chloe’s part, Dean was just going to have to drop all of her sexual comments on his lap and finally give Sammy that overdue talk about the birds and bees.
Grinning evilly, Dean noticed Castiel watching him with a raised eyebrow, and wondered if angels could read minds.
He thought of the raciest thing possible
That eyebrow went higher.
Dean’s grin became evil.
This was going to be so fun!
