Summary: Chloe Sullivan had a normal-ish life before the circle and John Blackwell turned her life upside down and gave new meaning to the unexplained weirdness that goes on in Smallville. Now life's a witch, she's a part of a circle she's not too sure she wants to be bound to, and not only do they have to worry about Witch-Hunters, but unknowingly to them another circle is on the hunt too.
Wanna thank tenshinrtaiga for betaing!

Moira looked up, eyes wide as a dish slipped from her hands, shattering on the tiles at her feet.

Gabe looked up from where he was getting something from the fridge, his eyes narrowing when hers flashed lupine. "What is it?"

"Chloe," Moira whispered, the connection between them through her bite wounds sending a distress signal. "She's in danger."

"Why the frig isn't she answering?" Whitney didn't like the fact that he was visibly freaking out, but the star in his palm was throbbing viciously, itching like hell and he just knew Chloe had somehow managed to get herself into more trouble. The fact that the agonizing pain he'd felt earlier was gone did not make him feel any better either. He tried Chloe's number once more, cursing when he realized he should have gotten Diana's number, and then tried Chloe's home phone despite knowing the blonde wasn't there and not really wanting to talk to Moira if she picked up.

"What's going on?" Clark stepped forwards, eyes narrowed and fists clenched. "What happened to you? What-?"

Greg's eyes were narrowed on Whitney, his hands folded over his chest. "Chloe's in trouble, isn't she?"

Clark's eyes narrowed on Whitney. "Why would he feel it if Chloe was in trouble?"

"Isn't it obvious?" Greg asked softly. "They're a Circle."

Clark turned his narrowed glare on Greg. "A Circle is six."

"It's a new kind of Circle." Greg turned his gaze onto Whitney thoughtfully before declaring, "I call shotgun." And with that he headed towards Whitney's parked truck, hands in his jacket's pocket.

Whitney's call went to the home answering machine, the blonde cursing angrily.

Clark clenched his fists before storming wordlessly towards Whitney's truck as well.

Whitney watched them, scratching his star, blinking when his phone began ringing, Gabe's number on the screen. "Hello?"

"Miller's Field," was all Gabe said before hanging up.

Whitney's eyes widened. "Oh shit!"

The Quarterback took off towards his truck.

Davis sat in the motel in Chance Harbor feeling lonely. He'd just finished talking with Oliver and Tess, who'd filled him in on the fact that Diana Meade was now in Smallville and staying with her sister, Chloe Sullivan. The advent of the Balcoin girl had betrayed the true Balcoin in Smallville, but from what Davis figured, it really wasn't a surprising reveal. Despite physical appearances in Crouch End, Lex had already suspected the blonde to be the Firstborn. Their leader didn't want them all in Smallville though, even though he now knew who their Firstborn was. Instead had sent Oliver and Tess off on some mission and had texted Davis that his own mission was over as well.

Cassie Blake wasn't the Firstborn and wasn't of any interest to them, at least for now.

Davis was to go back to Metropolis and prepare things for whenever Lex felt he was ready for them.

Sighing, staring at his packed bags, Davis didn't understand why he hesitated, why he was resentful for this order.

Why exactly was Lex doing things this way?

This wasn't what they'd agreed would happen once they found the Firstborn.

Jason's words about Lex maybe not going through with what he'd said he would concerning the Firstborn echoed in Davis' head.

Davis frowned, shaking his head as he grabbed his bags and stormed out of the motel.

-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-

"What is that?" Diana asked, both she and Chloe standing in the middle of the dome.

Chloe followed Diana's outstretched hand before her eyes widened. "Oh you've got to be kidding me!"

One of the hooded men was drawing closer to the barrier, his hand clenched around a sickle glowing softly as if in flames. A war cry erupted form his lips as he raced towards the dome, sickle held high, ready to slam it into the dome, when suddenly a blast of purple slammed into him, sending the man flying into two other robed men and the sickle flinging up into the air before falling hard into the ground.

Chloe's eyes widened and she turned (as did everyone) towards the direction the magic had come from, her lips parting in surprise to see Lex and Jason slowly walking towards them calmly. They looked so out of place, dressed as expensively as they were, in the middle of the charred countryside, and yet the men just sneered at the robed ones, who turned towards them.

"Now this is just cowardly." Lex sneered, straightening his Armani jacket. "You big bad men attacking two girls like this? Really tacky."

Chloe held back the fact that Lex had basically sent people after them as well, shocked that he was here, that he was apparently helping them. Sure, she was supposed to "belong" to his family, and yet-

"You know what these girls are, Luthor," a voice declared as one of the men stepped forwards. "They and their kind are abominations that must be destroyed." He stepped forwards before removing his hood – to reveal Farmer Jenkins. "You know that they must be killed."

Jason reached out his hand and Farmer Jenkins rose in the air. The witch gave a sharp twist of his wrist, the loud sound of Farmer Jenkins' neck breaking echoing throughout the night before his lifeless body tumbled back to the ground. Jason turned his green eyes on the group. "If you want to hurt these girls you'll have to come through us." He sneered. "And believe me, you don't want us fighting you."

"You'll pay for this!" one of the others yelled, sending a curse their way.

Lex smiled, and that was the only warning anyone had before power erupted from him like an explosion, sending the people flying backwards into the ground. He used the second the men took to stumble back on their feet and charge the two of them, to turn to Jason and smirk. "Let's play."

"'Bout time." Jason smirked back as the two men charged as well.

The two Circle members entered the fray with grace and agility that Chloe had never witnessed before. They were horribly outnumbered and yet were keeping their own. Still, more and more robed attackers seemed to be arriving and Chloe knew that, while these two men were obviously warriors, they weren't undefeatable. It was only a matter of time.

Chloe turned to her sister. "Stay in here."

"Screw that!" Diana surprised her. "I'm not just going to stay here by myself. I can fight."

"Be safe," Chloe whispered with a small smile before racing out of the barrier and grabbing the sickle that'd been abandoned, blade deep into the ground. Yanking it free from the earth, Chloe threw it at the man sneaking up behind Lex. The sound of the man's screaming as his hand was sliced off caused Lex to turn his gaze on her and smirk for a second before returning his attention to the fight.

Diana stood still, the rocks of the field around her levitating in the air before pelting at the ones charging her.

Someone grabbed Chloe from behind, a blade to her throat as he twisted her arm behind her painfully. "Time to die, bitch."

Chloe slammed her head back into his face, his blade slicing at her neck enough to draw blood as he staggered away, holding his bloodied nose.

"YOU BITCH!" he yelled, tightening his grip on his knife. "YOU'RE GONNA BE SORRY FOR THAT!"

Chloe held tightly onto her neck, pressing against the bleeding wound, stumbling slightly, disoriented from the pain and blood loss.

The man stormed towards Chloe – but before he could swing his blade at her once more, a white wolf side charged him, knocking him to the ground as fangs tore his neck open.

Pressing harder onto her wound, Chloe looked around her, shock filling her system as her father appeared behind one of the men grabbing his head, the sound of a neck breaking inaudible in the chaos.

"Hey!" Greg smiled at Diana, ducking a spell sent his way, and then another, before sending one of his own that sent the attacker flying into another. "I'm Greg."

Diana sent a rock flying into the face of one of the men who'd raised his hand to target Greg while he was distracted. "Diana."

"You're seriously hot," he announced with a grin before sprinting off to tackle the two robed guys, who were still on the ground and struggling to get up.

Diana's gaze followed him in utter confusion and slight amusement before returning her attention to the fight around her, lips moving in a soft murmur, "You're not too bad yourself."

A ball of ash rose and surrounded three of the attackers, not only blocking their view but making it harder and harder to breathe, Clark's eyes narrowed as he concentrated on keeping them trapped within. He reached out with his other hand and another ball of ash trapped two men behind him. So true to his character, Clark was obviously trying to render them unconscious without really hurting them.

Blood was pooling in Chloe's hand, covering her Balcoin symbol and star, trailing down her arm to cover the mark on her elbow as well.

And that was when she saw Whitney.

The young witch was fighting a group of five on his own, and yet not only was he keeping up with them, but his eyes were burning infernal red, the palm with his own star and the elbow with his own mark glowing blood red as well. It was as if her blood was sending him into some sort of blood rage. Two of the men hit him simultaneously with magic spells, which drove Whitney to his knees for a second before he flung his hands outwards towards them with a snarl – driving their spells right back at them and burning them up.

Lex's hands glowed purple with his power as he dodged most of the spells and curses with practiced ease. And every time his hands clasped onto someone, that purple shot into them and the longer he held onto them the slower they grew, the weaker. It was almost as if he was sucking power or energy out of them with his mere touch.

Where Lex was more grace and skill, Jason was more strength and passion, sneering and enjoying the fight, much more physical than Lex in his style. He didn't mind getting in punches or kicks, or elbowing an opponent in the face or neck before bringing them down with a well-placed spell. He seemed to analyze the fight less than Lex, going on instinct, taking any advantage he could find and not above cheating to give himself some where there wasn't – like adding moisture to the ground so he could slide on his knees between where Greg and Lex were fighting, none of the spells hitting him since they were all being aimed at a point higher than his head.

Her father's scream tore her attention from Jason. Chloe twirled around to find him on the ground, five robed ones around him, hands towards him. Their magic poured visibly from them, the magic-less man spasming on the ground as the witches above him laughed.

Chloe reacted without even thinking, feeling that magic within her coil like a serpent waiting to strike. She removed the bloodied hand from her throat, her anger and fury and pain whirling inside of her like a tornado. Emotions and magic and darkness welled within her, and while the darkness wanted to overwhelm and take over, wanted to reach out and kill all, Chloe funneled its fury into that tornado within her. These witches were no doubt part of the reason John had wanted all of the witches who weren't Balcoin dead, and while he'd been wrong in being willing to kill so many innocents to get at the few who deserved it – those who deserved it encircled her.

That tornado of power and anger beat at her chest and when she couldn't keep it in anymore, didn't even want to, it erupted from her with a scream, rippling out of her like an explosion that shook through and pierced every single person on Miller's Field.

Everyone stopped what they were doing, turning towards the source of the explosion of power, and then one by one those in robes began to scream as they clawed at their own skin.

Clark looked around him, eyes wide. "What's going on?"

The men began tearing off their hoods, their robes, revealing them to be every-day citizens of Smallville, people they'd known from childhood. Their skin was beginning to darken, as if they were burning from the inside.

Moira, in wolf form, went to Gabe and nudged him with her nose.

Gabe groaned as he sat up, nodding to the creature. "I'm fine."

Greg knelt down next to the screaming man in front of him. "It's the same spell from the school."

Diana gasped as she went to stand next to him, wide eyes on her sister. "But she doesn't have the crystal skull, so how…?"

Whitney stumbled slightly, bringing his hand to his head, the red glow beginning to disappear as he seemed to slowly return to them.

Lex observed everything going on around him with an ever the analytical eye, a slow smile beginning to curve his lips as his baby blues turned from the slowly burning and drying out bodies to Chloe.

Chloe didn't notice, staring at everything with detachment, almost as if watching the actions of someone else.

Only when the moans were near inaudible did the power return to her like whiplash, the shock of its return causing Chloe to gasp loudly and stagger back. She would have probably fallen as well if she hadn't stumbled backwards into a warm grip. Chloe tilted her head backwards, spots dancing in front of her eyes and seeming to almost dance over Jason's grim face.

She gave him a weak little smile, vaguely aware of Lex, Moira and Gabe finishing off the weakened, burnt witches.

Jason didn't reciprocate, a muscle jumping in his cheek as he stared down hard at her.

"Seriously?" Whitney snapped, pulling off his shirt and punching it up in a bundle before pressing it to her neck. "You took your hand off of your bleeding neck? Are you some sort of stupid idiot?"

"To be fair, stupid and idiot are the same thing," Greg pointed out from where he was coming closer as well, hands in his pockets.

Diana reached Whitney first though, eyes wide on Chloe. "Keep pressure on it, she's lost a lot of blood."

Whitney gave the girl a look that clearly said 'well, DUH!' before he turned his annoyed huff on Chloe. "You're such an idiot."

"Stop it," Clark scolded Whitney, though with little to no heat, his blues wide and worried on Chloe as he reached their side. "Are you okay?"

Chloe opened her mouth to tell him she was fine, but that was when her body decided to give out on her, her knees buckling in as she nearly fainted.

"Gods damn it," Jason growled, sweeping her up in his arms.

Whitney caught his bloodied shirt before it hit the ground, reapplying it to her neck. "Can you hold on to it and apply pressure yourself?"

She nodded subtly despite the pain, pressing the cloth with a wince just to show she could.

Whitney gave her a weak little smile before raising his hard blues on Jason. "We need to take her to the hospital."

"I have the fastest car," Lex declared from where he was kneeling over the last body, the hand he had around the man's body glowing purple until the last bit of life escaped from that man's lips. "We'll take her." He stood in a movement as smooth as liquid. "Any objections?"

"None if he's in the car with you," Greg replied, dark gaze going to Whitney to let them know who he was referring to.

"I'm coming as well," Gabe groaned, standing awkwardly.

"You should," Lex agreed with a look in his direction. "You'll probably need medical attention as well." His gaze slid over the rest of them. "See you at the hospital then."

Chloe pressed the material harder to her throat, leaning her cheek against Jason's chest, against his heartbeat, as he began walking her in the direction of wherever their car was. She closed her eyes, tired yet battling the urge to fall asleep, figuring it wouldn't be the smartest thing to do, all things considering. So to stay awake, she focused on the sound of Jason's heartbeat, surprised it wasn't racing faster considering that he'd just finished participating in a very (for him) physical battle. She focused on his scent, wondering why she felt as if she'd smelt this musky scent before. It teased the back of her mind, and then…

…a fox mask flashed before her eyes.

Chloe's eyes widened and she jerked, the movement causing Jason to stop walking, falling a couple of steps behind the others, as he stared down at her in uncharacteristic silence.

The blonde in his arms changed the hand she was holding her bandage with and grabbed hold of his shirt, staring up into his greens as her own widened. "It's you." Her lips parted. "You're the guy I kissed in Crouch End."

He stared down at her before his lips twisted slightly and he snorted, continuing to walk once more. "It was about time."

Eyes wide, Chloe spent the rest of the walk to the car unable to believe it, admittedly more shocked about this revelation than about what she herself had just done.

A question for you: have you read the trilogy that the Secret Circle show was based on? Do you follow that plt or invent your own?
