Written for my Paranormal25 150 Prompt Table. Prompt of the Day # 42: Skinwalker
A/N: I’m basing Vampire!Chloe’s personality off of Madelyn!Chloe, from the Smallville Episode “Spell”.
Warning: This story is not Bella-friendly.
At least she was able to go without her hood, but she missed the way her skin glittered. Under the cloudy sky her skin was pale, lifeless.
She didn’t like it.
Before reaching Forks, the blonde had narrowed her eyes, working her sight, controlling it, forcing it to show her where Jacob would be in half an hour. She’d seen him all alone, going through some spare parts at a junkyard.
The thought of going in a junkyard really didn’t make her day, but Chloe sucked up her pride and made her way there, quite enthralled by moving with just her vampire speed. Since being sired she’d always been taken to different places in cars and such, always being catered to, and it was amazing to finally put her vampiric abilities to the test.
She found Jacob in the back of the junkyard, all alone, and immersed in his search for usable parts.
Sighing, she leaned against an abandoned fridge, folding her arms over her chest as she observed him, undetected.
Was this boy really a skinwalker waiting for the fever of the shift to take over?
“You know, I kinda expected you to be…bigger
.” She announced her presence, giving him a look.
Jacob jerked, dropping the part he’d been examining, turning to look at her in shock. “Gees! Don’t sneak up on a person like that!” He then narrowed his eyes in curiosity as he noticed her getup. “What’s with the costume?”
She looked down at her Volturi robes, and remembered, vaguely, that she didn’t use to dress like this as a human. “I wanted to change into more normal clothes, but I wanted to see you before I did anything else.”
“Me?” Jacob asked, confused, intrigued. “Why did you want to see me? Who are
“I’m here, because you play an important part in the future, Jacob Black.” Chloe pushed away from the fridge and walked towards him, slowly, dress sweeping with each step. “I’ve seen you, seen what you could be, but also what you become. And it’s a shame.”
“You’ve seen?” He gave a little nervous chuckle. “What are you? Some sort of psychic?”
“Seer, actually.” She noticed the moment he realized her eyes were crimson. His dark orbs met hers and widened in shock. “I’m here to help you. And I’m here to offer you a deal.”
“Your eyes…” He didn’t seem unable to look away. “How…?”
“I’m a vampire.” She replied, chuckling a little at the way he took a step back. “You believed me. That’s good. I didn’t want to have to prove
it to you.”
“If you’re a vampire…” Jacob’s voice trembled slightly. “Does that mean…?”
“That the legends of your people are true?” She guessed the question, seeing him nod. “Yes. And Sam and his little cult? They’re it. The Big Cahoona.” She made a face. “Not much to look at, huh? I mean, they’re always playing…and jumping off of cliffs for fun.” She snorted. “And they say we
Jacob’s eyes were narrowed on her, wary. “What do you want?”
“Well, to help you.” She responded, circling him, the predator in her nature showing in her actions.
“Why would you want to help me?” He growled, turning slowly on his heel so that he never gave her his back.
“Because helping you will, in the end, help me.” She replied truthfully, clasping her hands in front of her as she continued to circle.
He faltered slightly at that. “How could it possibly help you?”
“Well, I don’t really like Sam. You
don’t really like Sam, and believe me, when he’s pulling your reigns and making you his bitch
, you’ll like him even less.” Chloe responded as-a-matter-of-factly.
?” Jacob snapped. “What are you talking about?”
“Well, you must know. They must have told you so you’d be ready and know what to expect when it happens. It’d be cruel
otherwise to make you go through such an experience, scared, not knowing what’s happening to you or your body. They wouldn’t be as mean
as to do something like that to you.” Chloe went for innocence as she stopped circling. “You know what I’m talking about…about your soon turning into one of them
Jacob’s eyes widened and he took a step backwards. “You—you can’t be serious…”
“You mean they haven’t
told you?” She let the surprise play a little longer on her face before shifting it to disbelief as she shook her head. “At least when we turn one into ours, we let them know what to expect.”
“What are you talking about?” Jacob snapped, worry and fear emanating off his body deliciously.
It was almost enough to make her hungry…
…but she reigned in her bloodlust. It wouldn’t do her mission any good if she attacked him.
No matter how delicious his fear smelt like.
“Haven’t you wondered why Sam keeps looking at you as if waiting for something to happen?” She lowered her voice to a temptress’ whisper. “Sam really does
want you to join his ‘cult’…he’s just waiting for you to get fleas
before extending the invitation. That way, he can control every single thing you do for the rest of your life
“He can’t control me.” Jacob growled at her. “I wouldn’t let him!”
She nearly smirked.
He was as touchy about Sam in real life as he’d been in her visions. She recalled him telling the human girl in the future how he didn’t trust Sam---how the older Native made him feel wary…and she was going to use that to her advantage.
“Oh really?” She chuckled, shaking her head at him as she went a little closer. “And how are you going to do that when he becomes your Alpha, and it will be physically impossible
for you to disobey his commands?”
Jacob’s face darkened, worry entering those eyes. “You’re lying.”
“Ask your father if you don’t believe me.” Chloe laughed, turning her back on him and looking up at the cloudy sky. “He’ll tell you that it’s the truth.”
“He---knows?” Jacob whispered.
“Of course he knows!” She laughed, sending him a look over her shoulder. “Everyone knows.” She paused, letting her features turn taunting. “I wonder why no one saw the need to tell you
, considering you’re the one the fever is going to come down on, and you’re
the one who’s going to suffer those days in agony as your body changes into a beast
for the first time.”
He stepped back, as if slapped. “You’re lying
“Ask daddy dearest when you go home. Go to him now.” She turned on the last word, grin taunting, gazing up at him through her eyelashes. “He’ll tell you that every single thing I’ve just said is the truth.”
The young Native’s breath was going ragged as his emotions went haywire. “Why---why wouldn’t he tell me?”
“Probably Sam didn’t want him to.” She ventured a guess, face pensive.
father.” Jacob growled, giving her the reaction she’d been trying to incite.
“But Sam’s the Alpha. And what Alpha wants, Alpha gets.” Chloe responded, circling the boy once more, and this time he didn’t move with her, he stayed there and let her circle him.
If she could win this boy over while he was still human, it’d be easier to secure his loyalty once he turned.
And she was designed to lure in humans.
The blonde trailed her cold finger across his back and chest as she circled him playfully. “Do you know what makes this just so much worse?” She asked, not waiting for his answer. “From what I’ve seen…you’re
supposed to be the true Alpha.”
His head shot up at that. “What?”
“It’s in your bloodline, Jacob. It’s your birthright
, and yet Sam doesn’t even have the respect to let you know you’ll change?” Chloe questioned, voicing the outrage she wanted him to feel. “You should have been told from young what to expect, and that you are the true
leader of the pack.” She frowned. “I wonder if Sam would have ever told you. Maybe he would have. On his own time. When he thought you were ready…”
“No. He probably wouldn’t
have.” Jacob growled deep in his throat, sounding like an animal. “He would have made me accept him as Alpha and then force me to do what he wanted me to do!”
“You really think so?” Chloe asked, just managing to keep the smirk off of her face, instead leaving it thoughtful. “Then, Jacob Black, I
acknowledge you as true Alpha. This is why I’m here. To offer you a deal…if you can claim your true place as leader, as Alpha. You’ll become a wolf whether you want to or not. The only thing you can change is whether you’re the Alpha…or his bitch.”
His gaze was narrowed and furious. “I—I need to talk to my father first. I—I need to make sure that what you’re saying is true.”
“Smart boy.” She praised, running her fingers up his neck and jaw, before releasing at his chin. “When you realize that I haven’t lied to you…come to the boarder between the Cullen land and the Rez…I’ll find you.”
He nodded, before leaving, storming away, forgetting all about the spare parts he’d been searching for.
Only when his back was to Chloe, did she allow her satisfied smirk to appear on her face as she chuckled softly.
This was just too easy.
Why did Caius make them fight werewolves?
It was so much easier to manipulate them.
Why couldn’t they see this?
Her phone rang.
Chloe sighed, pulling it out of her pocket and wincing when she saw the caller I.D.
“Aro. You’re out of Council.”
“And you’re out of Europe
.” He replied. “What did you see?”
He made a hissing sound. “And you believe you can change this by yourself?”
Chloe smirked, forcing her Sight, seeing already how the future was changing, even if subtly. “I already am.”
There was a moment’s pause. “I am intrigued. Explain.”
“There are certain ties that need to be broken…and others that need to be made.” She relied. “Otherwise we will be destroyed.”
“So be it.” He sighed. “Now, I was able to get your flight’s destination from the staff before Alec did. He wasn’t very happy. I’m going to have to hire more human staff.” Aro sighed, as if a great burden had fallen upon his shoulders. “You’ll have to get a new driver as well. I have some of the minions trying to scrub what’s left of him off of my driveway.”
He was whining
“Uh, yes, I was saying.” Aro cleared his throat. “You’re in Washington.”
She nodded. “Forks, actually.”
He paused. “Carlisle’s coven lives there.”
“So they do.” She agreed.
He sighed at her tight-lipped ways. “Are vegetarians
“Part of it.” She admitted. “I’m actually trying to think of a way to get in with them without raising too much suspicion. I thought about just appearing on their doorstep, but now I realize that that is just too weird, so I need another ‘in’.”
“Let me handle that.” Aro replied graciously. “And I will also do my best to keep your location a secret from Alec, since you apparently don’t want him involved in this mission and he did
leave pieces of your driver everywhere. It’s fastidious.”
“Thank you, Aro.” Chloe smiled. “For everything.”
“Don’t thank me yet.” Aro sounded like he was pouting. “That boy is tenacious, it’s one of the things I most admire in him. He will find out where you are. Sooner than you think---or want.”
“I know.” Chloe smiled brighter. “That’s one of the things I admire most in him as well.”
“Oh well.” Aro sighed. “You be cautious. I will call Carlisle now to let him know you are on your way to his home.”
“Thank you Aro.” Chloe nodded. “You are most gracious.”
“Yes, I am.” And with that, he hung up.
Shaking her head, Chloe laughed.
