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.

What in the world had happened in there with Adam?

Then again, what had she expected? He was right. He was a guy, an older guy, who hadn't had much experience and she'd basically humiliated him by treating him like a kid. Of course he was going to show her that he wasn't a kid! And she'd purposely provoked him on top of it!

The girl ran her hand over her face in horror.

She might be a virgin but she understood sexual tension and frustration, and damn it, relief! From how she was beginning to see it, there seemed to be a lot of the first two in her life, and none of the second. The Enthrallment hadn't made things easier for her either but now that she knew she could be with someone without Enthralling them…

She took in a deep breath.

The sexual frustration (and stress in general) of her life was getting to be too much for her to handle, which was becoming horrendously obvious from her behavior. If she didn't want to do something terrible or end up a monumental slut, she needed to find some sort of release and fast. But then again, it wasn't going to happen fast, was it? Not here in Romania in a girl RV with her family, was it? There was nothing like a family camping trip to kill the libido.

No. She needed to find herself a boyfriend once this was over and they were back in America… and she wasn't dying… and they weren't in a war... and she wasn't lizard-married to two Dragons.

Chloe groaned and shook her head.

"Change the sleeping arrangements."

The girl shrieked and jumped two inches off of the ground, twirling around to see that Zod was leaning against the side of the boy RV, clearly displeased with her. "Don't do that!"

Zod ignored her displeasure with him and merely echoed his previous commands. "Change the sleeping arrangements."

"Why? Are your sleeping arrangements not to your liking, your highness?" She did not have the patience to deal with this right now!

"I will not sleep in a separate vehicle than you," Zod replied as if this should be obvious. "Your brother showed clear signs of distress at having to stay in that vehicle, so I will switch with him."

"No, you will not." Chloe shook her head. "You will stay in this one and he will stay with us."

"No, I will not." Zod shook his head.

"Yes, you will." Chloe glared at him. "Have you seen the bedrooms? They are nice, yes, but the doors are flimsy, okay? You are not sleeping in the same RV as my sisters. The end."

Zod narrowed his eyes at her. "Are you insinuating that I would try to breed with them?"

"I did tell you to find some other witches to breed with to start your new colony, didn't I?" She had barely gotten those words out before she was swung around and pushed into the side of the RV, the Dragon visibly pissed as he pinned her against the vehicle. "Zod, let go!"

"You arrogant, mouthy, intolerable halfling!" he snapped at her, eyes going reptilian in his anger. "I have put up with a lot from you, but for you to insinuate that I would so disgrace-!"

"What's so disgraceful about my sisters?" Chloe glared at him. "They are beautiful and powerful and-!"

"Hatchlings! I'm sure if I searched them, I'd still find bits of eggshells stuck in their hair!" Zod growled. "They're younger than you are! And even your age worries me most days! I'd wait until your fiftieth birthday if it weren't for the fact that you are a halfling and I'm not sure how different you are to a pureblood – how long you'll live."

"Fiftieth-?" Chloe's eyes widened in shock as she stared up at the Dragon. "That's what you think is an acceptable age?" She couldn't help the twitching of her lips in amusement. "You do realize that even my mother is way too young for you then, right?"

His glare darkened.

She bit back her smile. "Sorry, right. Not funny."

Zod growled. "You think you're being funny, but you're not. You're insufferable."

"You're still not sleeping in the same RV as my sisters, even if you wouldn't try breeding with them." Chloe shook her head. "It's just not right, okay? They're teenage girls and they need their privacy. They can't have a Dragon who has no sense of decency or nakedness or – what's acceptable by human standards, living in such close quarters with them." She motioned to the boy RV. "Anyway, there's another Dragon up in there, even if a halfling. Shouldn't you, I don't know, want to spend time to get to know him or something?"

Something dark crossed over Zod's features that Chloe didn't like one bit.

She narrowed her eyes. "What is it?"

"Nothing." Zod looked away.

"Wait, I thought you'd like Jason." Chloe reached out and gripped Zod's shirt. "Apokalips is dead, he is one of the only Dragons left. Shouldn't you be banding together?"

"He's a halfling, not a real Dragon," Zod snapped.

Chloe pulled away as if hit.

Zod cursed as he turned to her. "I didn't mean it like that."

Chloe narrowed her eyes at him. "You weren't serious when you said you'd kill the half Dragon when you found out who it was, were you?" It was then that she saw that he was serious, the blonde feeling something cold inside her. "Zod, you can't."

"Why not?" The Dragon sneered at her. "Because you're fond of him?"

"That's only one of many reasons." And yet she could see something dark in those eyes that she didn't like, didn't really feel she could trust or reach. "Fine."

"You'll step aside when the time comes?" Zod raised an eyebrow.

Chloe snorted as she moved to Zod, shaking her head. "You know I won't."

"Then what?" he asked.

The girl didn't answer, instead she went to the door of the boy RV and called in. "Lucas!"

There was some noise and then Lucas appeared at the door. "Yeah, boss?"

"Grab your things. You're gonna join Mikhail in the girl RV." Chloe's gaze was on Zod despite speaking to Lucas. "I'm taking your place here. You're the only guy I trust not to perve on the girls over there since I know you still haven't fully forgiven them yet."

Lucas paused as he blinked. "You are going to sleep here?" He cleared his throat and leaned in to whisper: "You sure that's such a good idea? I know Mik isn't going to like this one bit."

Chloe nodded. "Go on, and once you get there, tell Moira to start driving, we'll follow."

Lucas took in a deep breath as he disappeared back into the RV to grab his things. "This is going to be so awkward."

Zod narrowed his eyes on Chloe. "I did not want you to stay here. I wanted us to be over there."

"Life is not all about getting what you want in life," she quipped.

"No, it is all about getting what you want," he glared.

Chloe took in a deep breath. "Until I am sure that I can trust that you will not hurt Jason, I am going to keep the both of you in my sights at all times." She lifted the strap of her bag up her shoulder. "You only have yourself to blame." And with that, she smiled at Lucas as he descended from the RV, and the girl took his place, knowing he was absolutely right.

This was going to be so awkward.

"You can't be serious." Greg's eyes widened as he lay in bed and stared at his ceiling.

"Oh, I am," Diana's voice was not amused in the least bit. "It took Cassie, Lucas and I teaming up to keep Mikhail from going Hulk and storming over there in a protective, brotherly rage, but he's promised that once we stop for the night that he's going to let each and every one of those guys there know exactly what's going to happen to them if they lay a finger on 'his sister'."

Greg snorted in dark amusement. "He's going to be the brother who hates his sister's every boyfriend, isn't he? The one who thinks that no guy is ever going to be good enough for her."

Diana snickered. "Probably, yeah. I have to admit, it was kind of cute though, and nice, to see this other side of Mikhail. We don't really see those sides of him very often, and whenever we do, it's Chloe who brings it out."

"Doesn't she usually do that in all of us? It's why we all wanted to join her Circle – even when she does stupid shit like benching half of her team when she needs them the most." And Greg was still highly peeved off about that.

There was a sigh. "You realize that she's trying to protect you, right?"

"You realize that that's going to get her killed one day, right?" Greg countered with a snap.

Diana went silent.

Greg frowned, hating that he'd taken his frustration out on her. "Sorry."

"It's okay."

He sat up and glared at his collection of books on insects. "No, it's not."

"I get it, you're worried and upset and you feel left out." Diana sighed. "I promise to keep you up to date on everything that's going on, okay?"

"Great. So I'll know the exact moment when you guys die and I won't be able to be there to help." He threw himself back on his bed and stared up at his ceiling once more.

"Is this about your dad?"

He frowned. "What? No. Of course not. Why would this be about my dad?"

"Because you lost him to Witch Hunters because of magic," Diana responded. "I thought maybe subconsciously you might be scared of losing other people close to you because of magic as well. You know that Chloe's going to die if-"

"Don't say that." Greg glared.

"She's not going to die." Diana stressed that point to him as if she had some damned crystal ball and could see clearly into the future. "We're going to find those Stones in the Genesis Caves. We'll finish that ritual. She'll be fine. We'll all be fine. You've got to trust that, Greg. You've got to trust that everything is going to work out and we'll be alright. You'll see us again and we'll be fine."

"I'm sure my father said that to someone the night he died, or your guys' parents the night of the boathouse fire and look at where all that trust got them." And then Greg realized what he said and he smacked his face. "I am such an asshole tonight."

Dian sighed deeply. "Greg, just, I-"

"Dee, I didn't mean-"

"Good night, Greg." And with that, she hung up.

Greg groaned as he closed his eyes and rested the phone over them. "Stupid, stupid, stupid."

Considering that Lucas had called shotgun and she'd taken Lucas' place when they started moving, Chloe found herself Jason's Navigator, which was extremely hilarious because she had no idea how to read a map. At least, though, it gave her some time up front with the half Dragon, and helped her keep an eye on him without making it seem too obvious that she was trying to stay between him and Zod. Also, she hadn't seen Jason in a while and things had been very awkward between them since she'd discovered what he was, so she figured this was for the best. Thankfully, he was patient enough to explain the basics of the Romanian map to her, and mostly they were following Moira's lead anyway, so they just had to stick behind her and follow her RV wherever it went. Still, just in case they got separated for any reason, they'd been given a general direction of where they were going.

Chloe had no idea what Zod, Whitney and Adam were doing in the back to keep themselves occupied, but she really didn't even want to think about it right now, preferring to keep her eyes on the road as she stared at the back of what she couldn't stop thinking of as the "girl RV" despite the fact that it was identical to the one they were currently driving and nearly half of its occupants were, in fact, boys.

"So, this has got to have been an overwhelming couple of days, huh?" Chloe finally broke the silence as she opened the dashboard drawer and pulled out a tourist's guide to Romania. "First, you find out you have a half brother you didn't know you had, and then you find out that you're a half lizard who was purposely created to fulfill some demented Dragon's dreams of world domination." She flipped through the pages at random. "It's got to still be processing."

"Yeah, it still is." Jason's gaze was fixed on the road, his grip on the steering wheel tight.

Chloe raised an eyebrow. "Why do I feel like you're pissed at me for some reason?"

"I'm not pissed at you," he replied shortly.

She snorted. "Right."

Jason closed his eyes with a sigh and opening them, sending her a sideways glance before fixing them on the road once more. "I'm not. Sorry. You're right, I'm still trying to adjust, and I'm not adjusting that well."

"How so?" She narrowed her eyes as she turned towards him, worried.

"I'm questioning everything about myself right now." His chuckle was dark. "Especially if the reason I liked you in the first place was because I was supposed to and not because I actually liked you." He sent her a quick look before he returned it to the road once more. "You must have wondered the same thing about your attraction towards me when you found out I was the half Dragon – If what we felt towards each other was genuine at all or fabricated by Darkseid to fit his purpose."

Chloe licked her lips and nodded. "Yeah. The thought did cross my mind."

He cleared his throat, gaze fixed on the road. "What conclusion did you come to?"

Her gaze joined his on the road. "My jury's still out. Yours?"

He took in a deep breath. "Mine too."

She nibbled on her bottom lip. "What's your take on these bracelets and the whole 'bond' that could happen if we're not too careful? It sounds like it's a really bad thing. According to the Councilman, the last people who used these things went psycho."

Jason cleared his throat loudly. "We won't have to worry about that because we'll find the Stones of Power and finish the ritual long before there's any bond."

She felt so weird talking to him about this. "Yeah, you're right. Though you and Zod sharing a bond would be amusing."

He sent her a little glare.

"Right. Sorry. Not funny." Chloe leaned hard against the seat and stared up at the ceiling as she twirled a strand of her silver-tipped hair. "How did you explain this trip to your Circle?"

Jason gave a dark, unamused chuckle. "What Circle?"

She sent him a sideways look. "Things are that bad?"

"Let's just say that Patty faking her own death, and then trying to kill us, aren't the only things that have been wrong with that Circle for a while now, and leave it at that."

Chloe straightened in her seat. "I'm sorry to hear that."

"I'm sorry, but I don't want to talk about this anymore." Jason's grip on the steering wheel tightened.

"Okay." Chloe licked her lips, her eyes widening as she watched as the freckles on his cheekbones seemed suspiciously more defined, Jason's eyes going greener. Was he close to going reptilian and showing scales?

This conversation was obviously bothering him a lot.

They drove in silence the rest of the way until they reached the first leg of their journey:

oh my gosh... every girls dream came thrue for chloe... she with 4 hot guys .....do i smell harem....please!!!!!!!!!
26th-Oct-2013 09:56 pm (UTC)
LOL - Just wait and see!
23rd-Oct-2013 07:01 am (UTC)
Yes I'm still giggling and squealing about all this. Ohhh Zod trying to worm his way into the girl RV so he can be alone with Chloe and to misfire and now Chloe is in the boy RV. *cackles madly*

And I seems that not only is Lionel's circle is broken but Lex's as well, interesting!!!

Can't wait for more of Chloe's adventures with her harem.
26th-Oct-2013 09:56 pm (UTC)
Exactly! It completely backfired on him horribly!

The Luthors have definitely had bad luck Circle-wise. Julian's Circle is only broken due to death though, otherwise his is strong.
23rd-Oct-2013 07:02 am (UTC)
Chloe just happens to find the most suitable driving/living arrangements is her and the four guys who are in love with her? LOL, sure hun, whatever you have to tell yourself!

And more Chladam! Wait, seriously Chloe? Do you honestly not realise Adam has a thing for you? That he's upset over more than you treatinghim like a kid? That girl can be *dense* sometimes!

Oh, and I'm totally paying attention to the plot-stones-dying stuff! I swear! Or I will, when it comes centre stage again, anyway.
26th-Oct-2013 09:57 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, totally, it just makes sense to her *wide eyed innocent expression*

She definitely hadn't realized it!

23rd-Oct-2013 10:23 am (UTC)
Smooth Zod smooth. *snicker* Because obviously Chloe is going to be totally fine with the Kill Jason plan. And accidentally insulting her really helped.

Ahh Chloe on the boys rv. I'm with Mikhail on this one. (Loved the description of his brotherly hulk out).

Poor Greg feeling left out and angsty.

Ah Jason's just a big bag of issues at the mo huh.
26th-Oct-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
Exactly! But he's a silly Dragon with some arrogance and strategic planning to smoothen out.

Yeah, that poor boy definitely won't be sleeping well having nightmares about his poor sister sleeping over there!

23rd-Oct-2013 02:49 pm (UTC)
Woohoo! Sex cruise!
How did I know that your devious mind would come up with a plan that would throw Chloe and her boys into very close quarters? Hmmm... I guess great (and dirty) minds think alike! lol

So yeah, this chapter....

Sorry, I can't get around the fact that Chloe is alone with all these men, knowing how easily she can get hot and bothered and knowing how the four can feel what she's feeling... I really can't think of anything else right now except for...

... where the heck is the next chapter? :)
26th-Oct-2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
SEX CRUISE!?!?! *dies laughing*

I'm sorry, I just can't...

*continues laughing*
