Disclaimer: I don't own Smallville/Twilight
Summary: Chloe, Lois and Lana head to Forks to get away from exes and their life in Smallville--to be normal for once as they celebrate graduating from high school. They don't know three things though. One is that they're wearing different colored kryptonite necklaces...two is that they've been imprinted on...and THREE is that Forks is the LAST place to go to if you're looking for safety and normalcy.
Written from paranormal25 prompt # 67: charm
The whole town had lit up beautifully, as a local band played up on a platform, and there was singing and dancing and people selling food, books, jewelry and anything you could imagine. There were games being played, cotton candy distributed, and Chloe was lost in the magical feeling and the way the town had just seemed to come alive all of a sudden.
“This is amazing.” Lana whispered, looking around, just as enchanted as Chloe. “We never had anything like this in Smallville.”
“So true.” Lois nodded.
She was a year older than the two other girls, but when she was fourteen and her mother had died her little sister Lucy had been shipped off to an elite boarding school in Europe and Lois had been given the choice to either base-hop with her father, a General, or to live with her cousin Chloe.
She’d moved to Smallville without even having to really think the options through, and had grown up in Smallville in the same grade as Chloe and Lana due to the fact that she was a little behind due to her previous base hopping and the time it’d consumed.
“Hey.” Lana waved at yet another man to wave at them. “The locals here are really friendly, huh?”
“I know. It’s smaller than Smallville and everyone’s desperate to see the fresh meat.” Lois waved at another male. “And they’re not bad looking at all.”
Chloe shook her head at her two best friends in amusement. Her green gaze went over the section of the square they were in, in which the stalls were selling the merchandise, and she grinned. “Look, antiques.”
Lois and Lana exchanged looks.
“What?” Chloe asked, hands going to her hips challengingly.
“Nothing, really, its just that we’re here to mingle and have fun.” Lana announced carefully. “We should be getting to know the guys around us and not shop----ooh! That’s the cutest thing ever!” and without finishing her previous sentence she drifted off towards the stall in question.
Lois and Chloe laughed, shaking their heads as they followed after Lana, who was oohing and aahing after some ornament that neither other girl found all that cute but instead found somewhat freaky since the kitten’s eyes seemed to be following their every movement.
In the end Lana bought the freaky little kitten ornament, and didn’t dare comment when they drifted towards the antiques stall, Chloe immersing herself in the beautiful things being sold there, Lois even looking at a pair of earrings that she liked.
“This is really pretty.” Lana declared, pocketing her kitten ornament and now paying attention to a gorgeous oak jewelry box.
“Forget that, these earrings are rockin’.” Lois declared.
For having complained about her like of antiques, Lois and Lana sure seemed to be enjoying themselves at this stall.
Shaking her head, Chloe reached for a beautiful bracelet, loving the way the light reflected off of it. It was silver with a wicked looking wolf charm hanging off of it.
A loud noise caused Chloe to put it down and turn, along with Lois, Lana. A group of young adults arrived together, one handsome man having run into a stall and knocked a couple of things over, and another having tripped over something on the ground and having landed on his face.
Chloe hardly noticed it though, because that boy was in that group, and he was looking straight at her.
She quickly looked away and picked up the first thing she could find, pretending to be looking at it.
Lois snorted as she looked in the group’s direction. “What is this? Handsome Klutz Anonymous?”
“Maybe it’s an inner ear thing?” Lana guessed, giving the group a look before turning her back on them and going back to examining the jewelry box. “No group of males could be that klutzy without there being something wrong with them.”
“Maybe.” Lois raised an eyebrow, looking at the one who’d ran into the stall a long look, before shaking her head and snorting once more in derision, turning her back on them as well. “I’m just wondering if it’s even safe to hookup with any guys from here. I mean we have just been shown three hunky yet totally coordinately challenged males…and what if it’s something catchy?”
“Lois, stop being so mean.” Lana scolded more on principle and out of routine than really because she disagreed, attention moving on to a hairclip. “Remember what I said about making fun of the less fortunate or those with some sort of disability?”
“Don’t…it’s fucks with my karma.” Lois replied automatically, also not really paying much attention to her own conversation.
“Exactly.” Lana nodded, bringing the clip to her hair and turning to the others. “What do you think?”
Chloe looked up and smiled at the antique bronze butterfly. “It’s gorgeous, Lana. You should get it. You could wear it now.”
“Really? It would look okay with the outfit?” Lana did a little pose in her provocative outfit, getting a wolf-whistle from someone passing, no one noticing the way a couple of males from the group previously mentioned had to grab hold of the male who’d fallen flat on his face moments ago.
“Nice.” Lois gave her a thumbs up but then got distracted when she saw someone standing in the next stall. He was tall, and older man, but still really good looking. “Okay, okay. I found my target for this vacation.”
Chloe and Lois followed her gaze.
Chloe blinked. “The sheriff?”
Lois turned to her. “How do you know who my future daddy is?”
Lana smirked in amusement.
No one noticed how the other males had to grab hold of the male who’d walked into the stall at those words.
Then again, the group shouldn’t rightly be able to hear what the girls were saying due to the distance between both groups, so the girls really couldn’t be blamed for this ignorance.
“I heard someone greeting him.” Chloe replied. “They called him Sheriff Swan.”
“Swan.” Lois smiled. “Lois Swan. How cool is that?”
Lana thought it over. “It’s a little---err---girly for you, don’t you think?”
“He pulls it off.” Lois jerked her thumb in the sheriff’s direction.
The three girls turned in unison and eyed the handsome sheriff with female appreciation obvious in their face.
“Yeah, he does.” Chloe agreed with a near leer before shaking her head to clear her mind of the gutter-worthy thoughts she’d been having. She turned to her cousin. “Okay, so do you really think its smart to make a play for the town’s sheriff? I mean, you’re only nineteen. Wouldn’t you have a better chance at scoring if you went for someone younger?”
“Nah, he’s an older man, and older men are both desperate to score with a young thoroughbred and they have the years of experience that these babies only wished they could have.” Lois parted to them some of her vast carnal knowledge. “My best lovers have all been much older than me. None of the younger ones have compared.”
“Not even Ollie?” Lana blinked, a little scandalized but intrigued at the same time. “I mean, he’s like---wow.”
Lois smirked. “Yeah, he is…but while he’s satisfactory in bed---my best time ever was with Mr. Jarvis.”
“Mr. Jarvis?” Lana frowned. “Why do I feel like I know that name?”
Chloe’s eyes were wide. “I hate you!” She exclaimed, laughing as she slapped Lois’s arms. “Mr. Jarvis---hunk librarian in Metropolis Mr. Jarvis?”
Lois grinned proudly.
“Oh! I can’t believe it! I used to fantasize about him since I was fifteen!” Chloe pouted, folding her hands over her chest. “I can’t believe you---and you never even TOLD me!”
“Oh my god.” Lana’s mouth fell open as she finally realized who the girls were talking about. “You didn’t!”
“No, I didn’t.” Lois grinned evilly. “He did all the work and I just had to lay back and enjoy the ride.”
Lana squealed and Chloe burst out into laughter.
“You sket!” Chloe laughed.
“I know. I know.” Lois admitted proudly, knowing that her cousin was teasing her and not insulting her, quite enjoying the girls’ reactions to this revelation.
“I’m so envious!” Lana pouted. “Even I wanted him for my first time!”
“He’d have made it worth it.” Lois promised with a lecherous grin.
Lana shook her head, still unable to believe what she was hearing.
Chloe shook her head, believing all to easily what she was hearing.
Lana turned to Chloe. “What about Lex? How was he?”
Chloe’s eyes widened and she blushed slightly before smiling and ducking her gaze. “He, uh, let’s say he’d sown enough wild oats by the time we got together that he had the experience of an older man.”
“Then again, you’ve only slept with him and no one else.” Lois pointed out. “So you wouldn’t know until you have someone to compare him to if he was really good or not.”
Chloe raised an eyebrow at Lois. “Oh, believe me, even without someone to compare him to I know he was really good.”
Lana pouted darkly, beginning to look around the crowds with determination.
Lois and Chloe noticed, curious.
“What are you doing?” Chloe asked.
“I’m getting laid tonight.” Lana said the one sentence they’d never have expected to ever leave her virginal lips.
Lois choked on her saliva.
Chloe’s eyes widened while she slapped Lois on her back to help with the choking. “Huh?”
Lana turned towards them. “I will not be the virginal perfect-girl-next-door with no sex stories to share anymore!” She returned to her search. “Help me search for a decent looking lay with no inner ear problems---because you never know how problems with coordination will affect a guy in bed.”
Lois got this dirty look on her face as she cracked an evil grin. “Yeah, imagine it now, him aiming for the sweet spot but his coordination problems end up leaving him continuously poking your navel or something.”
Chloe choked on her saliva.
Lana gave Lois a huge scandalized grin as she barked out amused laughter. “Stop it you evil hussy.” She snorted with her laughter. “Just help me already.”
“Well, there’s that one over there.” Lois went onto the bandwagon immediately, pointing to a cute blonde guy. “He looks like the type who knows what he’s doing and won’t be clingy in the morning.”
“We sound like men.” Chloe pointed out, although she joined in the search.
“Hush.” Both Lana and Lois smirked.
Chloe rolled her eyes, silent, gaze falling upon a handsome male with red hair and wearing shades despite it being nighttime. “Wow.”
Lana and Lois followed her gaze at that one word, both tilting their heads, faces showing their agreement to that statement.
“Can I have him?” Lois asked.
“You have the sheriff.” Lana was quick to remind her.
“And had Mr. Jarvis.” Chloe wouldn’t ever let her forget, straightening her dress and hair, eyes on the redhead even though she was planning on letting Lana have him. “Ask if he has a brother. Or a cousin. Or something.”
Lana checked her makeup in an antique mirror. “Let’s just hope he doesn’t have a boyfriend.”
Lois smirked. “That would put a damper on the night of hot sex.”
Chloe didn’t know what’d happened next, but what happened right before it was that the redhead turned to them and smirked, pulling off his shades---eyes crimson red.
And then people were screaming, other people were jumping out at them and biting them…and suddenly huge DOGS were snarling and jumping on the crimson eyed people biting the normal, screaming people.
Chaos erupted throughout the whole carnival, and yet Chloe couldn’t move, eyes wide on the blood and destruction going on before her.
She gave a little shriek as she was pulled backwards out of the danger, and Chloe suddenly found herself hidden behind the antiques stall with Lois, Lana, and the owner of the stall.
“Tell me that they’re not what I think it they are.” Lois, who’d grabbed Chloe, took in a deep breath.
“Vampires and werewolves?” Chloe guessed, eyes wide.
“I told you not to tell me!” Lois whined.
Lana covered her ears with her hands at the screams and inhuman snarls. “What is this place? Sunnydale?”
Chloe carefully peered up over the stall at the carnage happening. “And to think we came here to get away from the weirdness of Smallville for a while.”
“Only figures we’d pick the town that gets massacred by vampires and werewolves.” Lois agreed, not as terrified as she probably should be given the fact that they’d been living in Smallville all these years.
Continuing to peer out, Chloe’s eyes widened when she saw the redhead she’d been interested in stalking three hidden girls, one plain yet pretty, another really young, around three or four, and the other who had a horrible deforming scar on one side of her face. “Lois.”
Knowing that sound, Lois peeked over the stall and winced when she followed Chloe’s gaze. “Chloe, you know we can’t.”
“What are you two talking about?” Lana whispered, peering over as well.
“There’s a kid there!” Chloe whispered urgently.
The woman with the deformed face noticed the vampire coming towards them, and after quickly arguing with the other older girl, she hugged her tightly before standing, grabbing the complete attention of the vampire. She then said something that Chloe couldn’t hear with the chaos, but made the vampire hiss and give chase as she tried to run.
But the thing was so fast it caught her and immediately threw her into a nearby stall, stalking towards her with deadly intent.
Chloe’s body went tense as she watched.
Lois turned to Chloe. “Chloe…no!”
Chloe turned to look at her cousin apologetically before rushing out from behind her hiding place and running towards the vampire (who had his back to her) who had grabbed the struggling girl and had bitten deep into her neck, causing her to scream in agony.
Not sure what in the world she was going to do, knowing she was no match for a vampire, Chloe reached for a fireplace poker being sold at one of the stalls and swiftly swung it at the vampire’s head as it feed from the screaming girl.
The vampire snarled, looking up at Chloe in shock and bloodlust. “Stupid little girl!” He snarled, letting go of the girl (who was still screaming and jerking on the ground) as he turned to Chloe. “I’ll kill you slower!”
Terrified, not having thought passed this part of the plan, Chloe tightened her hold on the poker. “Leave her alone!”
“It’s too late for her.” The vampire sneered. “Even if I don’t bleed her dry the venom will kill her!”
Chloe sent a worried look in the jerking girl’s direction and it was all the vampire needed to knock the poker out of her hands and grab her by the throat, lifting her easily off of her feet and cutting off her oxygen.
Chloe gagged, trying to desperately breathe, grabbing at his hands and squeezing.
The vampire laughed at her before he suddenly stopped laughing, looking up at her in confusion. “What’s---what’s happening to me?”
Chloe’s eyes narrowed, tightening her hold on him, watching as a trail of blood began to make its way down the side of his lips and he began to choke.
“Hey you.” Someone tapped his shoulder.
The vampire turned his head towards the girl and his face swung with the blow of the punch, dropping Chloe and falling to the ground himself.
Lois took in a deep breath and cracked her knuckles, pupils morphing catlike before returning to normal. “I was supposed to be a normal girl for this whole vacation!” She kicked at the vampire. “I had my nails done and everything!”
The vampire evaded her next kick and got back to his feet, charging her, the fight beginning between them.
Chloe didn’t have time to feel bad for forcing Lois to do this, as she crawled towards where the girl was on the floor, body jerking erratically. Leaning over her, Chloe winced at the savaged flesh of her neck. “Hold still---I’m trying to help you!”
“And these shoes were new too!” Lois continued to snap at the vampire as they fought, delivering a perfect roundhouse kick and sending the vampire flying into a stall. “Do you know how long I had to save up to get them?” She snarled as she stormed towards him.
The vampire was trying to crawl away.
Lana appeared in front of him with a huge wok in her hands and slammed it into his face with enough force to cause his face to swing, and he fell unconscious on the heap of broken stall. “Well, this is one way to work off my aggression.”
Lois grinned as she reached them. “You’re getting better at the wordplay.”
“Thanks.” Lana smiled brightly. “It’s the Buffy reruns.”
“Excuse me! Could use some help here!” Chloe called out.
“Oh.” Both girls announced before hurrying to Chloe.
“Hold her down.” Chloe commanded. “I can’t do this with her jerking like this.”
Lois nodded, straddling the girl and holding her down by her shoulders. “Do your mojo Cuz.”
Lana kept watch, holding her wok tightly.
Chloe sighed and pressed her hand to the girl’s neck, narrowing her eyes, concentrating. And then it was working, and the screams were dying down, the venom evaporating from the veins, the tissues and muscles regenerating and joining together.
And, to the surprise of even Chloe, the horrible deforming scar on the half of the girl’s face began to flatten, and slowly disappear until her whole face was flawless and breathtakingly beautiful.
Lois blinked, getting off of the girl, who was gasping for breath. “I didn’t know you could do reconstructive surgery too.”
“I didn’t either.” Chloe whispered before her whole world spun, went completely black, and she was falling.
Lois caught her, grunting as she lifted the unconscious girl in her arms. “Remind me to get her to lose some pounds if I have to back her around every single time she uses her power.”
Lana nodded before turning to the girl, who was looking up at them in shock. “The fight’s ending. Get to your friends and get to safety.”
“What---?” The girl looked up at them in awe.
“You’re going to be fine.” Lana reassured her before getting up and following after Lois, who was already walking back to the house, through the chaos left behind now that the werewolves were chasing the vampires out of the town.
Apparently the werewolves were good.
Who would have thunk it?
“Wait!” The girl called from behind them. “Please wait!”
But Lana and Lois ignored her, looking at each other worriedly.
“How long do you think it’ll take us to repack everything?” Lois asked. “We need to get the heck out of here before the chaos is completely over and people remember what happened---or that girl explains how she survived that bite and why her face isn’t scarred any more.”
“I’m a master at speed-packing. Let me handle that.” Lana announced. “You get the things into the car and have it ready. Chloe should be unconscious until tomorrow. By then we should be safe and far away from here.”
Lois sighed, lowering her head. “I know we did the right thing---but we’d come here to be safer and have fun for the first time since this happened to us, to be normal now that school wasn’t tying us to Smallville and the life we had there.”
“There’ll be another place.” Lana promised Lois. “We could always go to your mom’s home.”
Lois winced. “Yeah, I guess.”
The two women hurried their pace towards Lana’s family home, preparing to disappear in the shadows and never return to Forks again.
