Chuckling deep in her throat, Chloe whimpered as she was lifted and turned, pressed against the humid alley wall. Her gloved hands went to dark silky hair, fingers fisting in those locks, swallowing the grunt of pleasure he emitted. Her breaths came out erratically, her body heating up pleasurably as she wrapped her legs around his hips, her fingers trailing roughly down the back of his head, neck, to dig deeply into the muscles of his shoulders.
, sugar." He whispered into her lips, hissing in pleasure.
One hand cupped her breast and the other trailed up her thigh before venturing under the folds of her skirt.
Chloe bucked against him.
"Tease." He chuckled.
A scream echoed throughout the darkness.
They went tense before he put her down, and together they ran down the alley and took a left, coming upon a gruesome discovery.
Another couple had been taking advantage of the alleyway of the Metropolis club district...and now the girl lay dead, torn to pieces on the ground...and there was something coming out of the boy. It was shimmery, like a ghost, and yet when it removed itself from the human it was possessing and looked the boy in the eyes, the boy's life and coloring visibly faded out of him as he collapsed dead next to his girlfriend.
Chloe's eyes widened.
She grabbed hold of her boyfriend's hand and pulled him around the corner of the alley and against the wall before the creature could notice them, pressing a hand to her boyfriend's mouth before he could utter a word.
His eyes were wide in shock and horror, but he didn't utter a sound.
They stayed pressed back against the wall for what seemed like hours, before Chloe finally grew the courage to sneak a peak around the corner again.
The thing was gone, and all that was left behind was its victims.
She breathed out a sigh of shaky relief. "We need to get out of here, now
. That thing's still around."
He grabbed her hand and began leading her out of the alley way, both of their movements rapid and urgent. "What was that?"
"Mad, I need you to call the police, tell them about those kids." Chloe let go of his hand once they were out in the open, with others. She pulled out her cellular and punched in a couple of digits, waiting anxiously for the person on the other end to pick up.
be important Chloe." Lois sounded feral.
Then again, she had been spending the night at her boyfriend's.
"A gaki." Chloe ran her hands over her hair shakily as Mad spoke to the 911 operator. "There's a gaki
There was a moment's silence, and then rapid movement, and the sound of a male complaining. "Shut up!" Lois hissed to him before there was more shuffling and the sound of a door closing. "Are you sure about this?"
"The boy looked at his face and died. The life drained out of him in seconds."
." The eighteen year old could be heard quickly trying to put back on her clothes, the sound of her boyfriend knocking on the door and asking her what was going on audible in the background. "What happened? Are you okay? Has it seen you? How's the Mad Ox?"
"We're both fine, it didn't notice us. I got us hidden before it turned in our direction." Chloe turned so that she could keep Mad in her line of view, not wanting him to wander off and get hurt. "God, Lois. It went after a couple in the same alley we were in, only further down. It could have been Mad and me."
that. You two are okay, that's all that matters." There was shuffling. "I'm coming out there right now."
"You don't have-."
"You could have died tonight Chloe!" Lois snapped, ignoring whatever it was her boyfriend was saying to her, slamming a door closed. "I'm coming. Where exactly are you two?"
"Okay, I'm in my truck. I'll be there in twenty." Lois announced. "Keep in a crowded area and keep your eyes on your feet. Don't look at anything in the face."
"Lois." The sixteen year old whispered as Mad finished talking to the 911 operator. "How do we hunt something we can't look at?"
There was a pause. "I don't know."
Sam groaned as he reached blindly for the annoying ringing in the middle of the night. He'd been having the nicest dream and the fact that some idiot didn't have the decency to wait till morning to call him was annoying the hell outta him. Another thing that annoyed the twenty year old was the fact that Dean could be heard snoring loudly from his bed, obviously not even noticing the loud ring and enjoying his own little dream.
?" Sam snapped as his hand finally came into contact with the phone and he brought it to his ear, answering it.
There was a pause.
"Uhm, Sam?" A nervous, unsure voice spoke softly on the other end. "I'm sorry for calling you at this time of night, I know it's rude and you're probably really tired and-."
"Chloe?" The sleep evaporated and he rapidly sat up in bed, reaching over and turning on the light. "No-its okay. Don't worry, I really wasn't sleeping."
"Liar." She laughed softly. "I'm sorry, really, if it wasn't important I wouldn't be calling you at this time of the night."
He ran a hand over his unruly hair. "Is something wrong? What happened?"
Ever since meeting up with the girl two years ago, Sam and Chloe had managed to keep in touch. It wasn't something they did constantly, but no more than two months would pass without communication between them, and they'd share stories of hunts and such during those phone calls or emails. Dean liked to snigger and cough "jailbait", but Sam had found an amazing friend in the much younger girl, and he didn't pay his annoying jerk of a brother any attention.
She took in a deep breath. "Sam, there's a Gaki hunting here."
He went still. "A Gaki. Are you certain?"
"I watched it drain the life out of the guy but just showing him its true face."
"You were that
close to it?" He snapped, his horror turning into anger. "Dammit Chloe! You could have been hurt! You could have been killed! How could you have been so careless?"
"I didn't know what it what at the time!" She snapped right back, before taking in another breath, obviously trying to calm down. "Lois and I-we don't know-Sam? How do you hunt something you can't look at?"
His eyes narrowed. "You are not hunting this thing!"
"Of course we are!" She growled. "And if you're not going to help us then fine!"
"Don't you hang up!" He snarled, sensing her intention.
There was silence, but no ringtone.
She was pissed, but hadn't hung up on him.
Sam closed his eyes and tried to breathe in and out, tried to calm down.
It wouldn't do any good to get her pissed off more than she already was.
"Chloe, this is bigger than anything you two would have ever hunted before."
"We know that Sam." She stressed. "That's why I'm calling you."
He sighed, running a hand over his face. "Dean and I are a couple a hours away from Metropolis. We just finished a hunt in Smallville and are spending the night at an inn here. We'll be there soon."
"I'm not asking you to-."
"Chloe." Sam sighed, closing his eyes. "When I gave you my contact information, what did I tell you?"
There was a moment's silence, and when she spoke it was soft. "That if I needed you, you'd be there."
"I meant it." He announced softly.
"I know." Her voice was a mere whisper. "Thank you."
He smiled, understanding how hard it was for her to put away her pride enough to admit in her own way, that she needed help. "We'll be there in a couple of hours."
"Okay." And then she hung up.
Sighing, looking at his mobile phone, Sam finally turned to Dean's snoring figure and threw his pillow at the twenty-four year old. "Get up. We have somewhere we need to be."
"Shut up." Dean grumbled, throwing the pillow to the ground and turning in bed. "Whatever it is, it can wait till morning. We just fricken dealt with the freakiest shit we've dealt with in years." He grumbled, pulling his blanket over his head. "Meteor mutants. Jesus."
"It's Chloe and Lois."
There was a pause and then Dean removed the blanket from over his head, eyes blearing sleepily and red at his younger brother. "The G.I. Janes okay?"
"There's a Gaki hunting in Metropolis." Sam was already up, headed towards the bathroom. "Chloe got close enough to see it kill."
"And those little idiots are going to hunt it." Dean groaned, getting out of bed and rubbing at his tired eyes. "They're going to get us killed one of these days."
Sam hadn't heard, he'd closed the bathroom door and the shower was already running.
