Summary: The whole world now knows about vampires, and most of it has been compelled by Klaus, via the "coming out" broadcast. With the Salvatores and the Winchesters unable to see eye to eye on anything, Lois learning the way of the vampire hunter, and someone from the past returning to 'help', things are about to become crazy. And, of course, E!News is happily covering it all.

"No way in hell am I letting you go to that asshole's party." Damon arranged the bottles of fine, top-grade liquor they'd gone out and bought. "It's obviously a trap and even if you're stupid enough to walk into it I'm not going to let you."

"Don't talk down to her like that." Dean's voice was a growl as he stepped forwards, his eyes narrowed and his body just trembling with anger.

"You." Damon turned around and pointed a bottle of bourbon at the actor. "Be quiet, the grown ups are talking."

"Damon, just, stop." Stefan took in a deep breath, obviously unhappy and yet trying to keep the peace as he gazed at one of the invitations. "I doubt they plan on doing whatever they're going to do at this gala. Maybe they really want to just talk."

"You can't really think that." Damon turned towards his brother in disgust. "They've got most of the world Compelled. They can do whatever the hell they want to do whenever they want to do it. What's stopping them from doing something at that little prom of theirs?"

"With that reasoning, what's stopping them from trying something at any given time?" Chloe asked and raised an eyebrow at the look Damon sent her. "I'm serious. They could come here and, I don't know, burn this place to the ground. But instead they're inviting us to a dance." Her gaze lowered to the invitation in her hands. "I'm going to go."

Damon glared at her. "No."

Chloe rose her greens to meet his blues tranquilly. "Yes."

The vampire's grip on the bottle tightened. "Fine. But I'm taking you, not one of the Wonder Brats."

"No." Chloe shook her head. "They specifically said that it had to be Lois, Dean, Sam and I."

The bottle of bourbon broke in Damon's grip, spilling the expensive liquid everywhere. "Because those Original bastards know that Brunette Barbie and the Tweedle Dees are no sort of protection for you! You're a sitting duck if you go there and they are your only backup!"

"I'm fucking sick of you calling us names and putting us down just because we have a pulse." Dean clenched his fists.

Katherine grinned. "Oooh, a dog fight. Haven't seen one in a while." She jumped up onto the counter and clapped her hands together. "Will be fun."

Sam sent her a disgusted look as he shook his head and moved to his brother's side. "Dean, you need to calm down."

"Yeah Dean," Damon smirked. "You need to calm down before I remind you who is on the top of the food chain by ripping your spine out of your mouth."

"Damon, you need to stop talking." Chloe narrowed her eyes at him. "Now."

A muscle ticked in his cheek as he turned a glare on her. "Who invited them over anyway? They shouldn't be here. They'll bring the paparazzi, and just why not put up big neon signs that say: SHE IS HERE!?" He turned his glare on the brothers. "They're not even a part of this."

"The Originals made them a part of this, where have you been?" Katherine rolled her eyes at Damon. "I'm curious as to whether they've added them just as a ploy to get Chloe to the big ball or whether there is another reason as to why they want them there."

"What other reason would they want two actors?" Damon made a face. "This is Hollywood for crissakes. Actors are a dime a dozen. And it's not like they've even won Oscars or anything for their performances on their crappy little show."

Sam took in a deep breath. "I hate agreeing with him, but I do."

Damon motioned towards him.

Stefan eyed Dean. "You did say that Kol watched the show though, right? And that he mentioned wanting to meet Lois? Despite how far-fetched it might sound-maybe this is a fan-thing."

Ric made a face.

So did Lois. "Maybe I can use that to my advantage? Get some information out of him?"

"I doubt he's a fawning fanboy who'll roll over and show his stomach just because you ask him to nicely." Katherine sneered.

"I didn't think that." Lois raised an eyebrow. "But I can handle guys, and even if he's a vampire he's still a guy. I think I can work this to our advantage if we could go in prepared enough." She clutched her necklace. "What would happen if he ripped this off of me? Could he?"

Katherine nodded. "It would hurt, but yes, I'm sure he could if he really wanted to."

"And then he could use that Compulsion on me." Lois licked her lips. "I don't-I don't like that."

Katherine took in a deep breath. "You see, that's why you have me around. Because I'm the brains of this operation."

Damon sneered. "Yeah right."

Chloe, instead of dismissing Katherine, instead eyed her curiously. "What exactly do you have planned?"

The older vampire gave a sadistic little smile that curved her perfectly glossed lips. "Just how high is your pain threshold?"

-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-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-

Clark heard it long before he arrived at the abandoned safe-house: the screams. He hurried onwards, the security scan only barely managing to recognize him as: "Boyscout" and allowing him entrance before he pushed open the doors and rushed into the building, following the sounds of the screams to come upon a scene his fevered, terrified and overprotective imaginings hadn't imagined. He'd recognized Chloe's voice, he'd recognized her fear and her pain and had imagined she was being hurt, but he hadn't imagined that she would be the one doing it to herself. And yet as Clark threw the doors open hard enough for them to slam hard against the opposite walls, drawing everyone's attention to him, he found that no one was even remotely close to the girl. In fact, she was kneeling on the cool floor, her skin seeming like it'd been burnt with battery acid, and yet every time she drank from a glass in her hand it got worse and she'd have to pull away and after gulping down would have to scream harder.

Just what in the world was going on?

"So, either she's masochistic or she's punishing herself for something," a voice announced to himself drawing his attention to a petite brunette who looked unmoved by the blonde's pain, more intrigued than anything else. "I have a feeling it's the latter though. She's lasted a lot longer than the others did."

"What is going on?" Clark glared at her.

Chloe screamed, her skin turning black from the burning from within.

"Stop it already!" Lois hurried over towards her and went to her knees.

"I just have a little more," Chloe whispered to her. "A little more and I've finished."

"A little more and you could hurt yourself, permanently." Lois reached out to brush a strand of blonde hair out of Chloe's face but stopped when she must have realized that touching Chloe would hurt her even more.

Chloe, ever the stubborn one, threw her head back and finished the rest of the liquid, throwing the glass away as the liquid visibly burnt its way down the inside of her neck and body. The girl collapsed on the ground and screamed.

Clark stared at her her in horror and confusion.

The girl next to him looked reluctantly impressed. "She finished the whole damn thing on her first go." The brunette took in a deep breath. "The other two didn't, couldn't. She has either incredible self control or perseverance-and considering how long it took her to get her bloodlust under control, I'm going to go with the latter."

Clark went cold. "Bloodlust?"

The brunette smirked. "Right, you all don't know. Ooops."

Clark staggered back a couple of steps as the truth of the matter sunk in. When Oliver had called him to say that Chloe and "some vampires" were using the California safehouse, Clark hadn't needed Oliver to ask him to use his superspeed to go and check up on the blonde and see that she was okay. The revelation that vampires were real still had the JL reeling, and Clark knew that the revelation that Chloe was somehow involved with dealings with them had shaken Oliver greatly, it had Clark as well once Oliver had informed him. And yet now that Clark knew this vital piece of the puzzle so much made sense.

"Hey CK," Dean moved towards him, the human resolutely not looking in Chloe's direction, obviously not able to handle seeing her like that. "I was wondering how long you were going to take to come-though I didn't expect the grand entrance."

"Hey Clark," Sam gave a half-wave from where he stood in the corner, clearly uncomfortable.

"Hi Sam," Clark nodded to him, gaze going to Chloe quickly, before it turned to Dean. "She's a-she's one of-?" He then saw that Dean knew and wasn't surprised, guessed that Dean had known for a long time. The alien took in a deep breath and moved passed Dean to kneel next to Lois, who looked just as shaken up as he did, proving she was still as new to this whole revelation as he was, just as confused and trying to adapt. That made him feel better somehow. Not everyone had been keeping him in the dark. "Hey Chlo."

Chloe looked up at him, her eyes blood-red and those of a vampire, not of his best friend. "Clark?"

And yet that voice, that pained, scared voice, that was his Chloe.

Clark reached out and carefully, tenderly, brushed a golden lock out of her face. "You should have told us, Chlo. We would have been there for you. You're still our Chloe, no matter what."

Slowly the dark blood receded from her eyes, leaving them the green he remembered, green and filled with unshed tears. A very beat-up and tired Chloe sniffled at him.

Clark moved to hug her.

Chloe pulled away and shook her head as she placed her hand between them on his chest. "N-not n-now." She pushed away and stood, face on pain. "I-I need-."

Clark looked up at her, a little hurt.

"What she doesn't want to say is that she's hungry." A male Clark didn't know sauntered through the door, a couple of bags of blood in his hand, one of which he passed to her. "She needs to heal after ingesting all of that vervain, and her body needs blood in order to do so."

Chloe looked away as she buried fangs lightning fast into the bloodbag, a near-purr softly escaping her lips as she lowered to the ground and drank deeply from the bag.

The newcomer bent to his knees and rubbed her head soothingly, his gaze on her, watching as her horrifying burns slowly healed as she ingested the blood. "It would be better if you got it straight from the vein." His gaze rose to Lois. "I'm sure she wouldn't mind."

"-mon," Chloe mumbled around the plastic of the bloodbag.

Lois reached out her arm towards the blonde. "I don't mind."

Chloe pushed it away with a shake of her head and sent the guy a glare as she finished her bloodbag and took another from him. "Thanks Lo, but Damon knows that the bloodbags are just fine." She buried her fangs into the second bloodbag viciously, desperately, despite her words, her hands shaking.

Damon frowned as he watched her, worry on his face.

Clark finally remembered where he'd seen this guy before. He was one of those two men who'd been in the video piece with Chloe, the one about the bear and the camp massacre. This was one of the vampires.

"...fan?" Chloe mumbled around her third bloodbag.

"He's fine, we'd stopped and gotten some tanks of pigs blood before we hit Hollywood just in case we couldn't find good hunting ground so he could stalk Bambi," Damon rolled his eyes. "Stefan's upstairs having his fill on it, but animal's blood isn't half as filling and he'll take longer healing from the vervain with it."

Chloe frowned, a look of worry in her greens as she paused in her own drinking.

"Nothing you can do about him now, it's his own fault he can't have human blood without becoming the Ripper." Damon reached out and squeezed the bloodbag she'd been drinking, forcing her to gulp down the rest of the contents. "Good." The vampire examined her skin carefully before holding out the last two bags of blood to her. "Keep drinking."

She finished the bag and took in a deep breath. "I'm fine, the rest will-."

"Did I ask for you opinion?" He glared as he shoved the other bags of blood forcefully into her hands. "You're the idiot who kept drinking vervain passed her limit and if you want to be strong enough to do this you're going to have to drink enough blood to repair the damage the vervain has done to your body."

"He's right, Chlo," Sam announced softly from Damon's side.

Chloe's greens rose to Sam.

Damon twisted around to raise an eyebrow at Sam before he turned back to face Chloe. "See? Even Mount Rushmore knows this, and he's not a vampire."

Taking in a deep breath, Chloe dunk her fangs into the bloodbag.

Clark watched her burns slowly continue to heal, and wondered how in the world he was going to break this news to the others, or if he should even do so. This was really Chloe's secret, and if there was anyone who understood what it was like to hide one's inhumanity fiercely, it was Clark. Would she want the others in the JL knowing about her new status as one of the undead? Would it make them see her any different? Vampires were still such a new thing for them all, and while they were all sure that they posed no threat (hadn't Klaus assured the world of this?) there were those (like Zatanna) who felt otherwise.

Things had seemed complicated when they'd thought that Chloe was working along with vampires, but now that fact that she was one made things even more complicated. But in the end, she was still their Chloe. Clark knew that from the bottom of his heart.

Thing was, he wasn't sure he could trust the others to come to the same realization.

-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-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-

So far this whole night had been about Chloe and Katherine wasn't enjoying it. She was used to being under the spotlight and being in the center of attention and the fact that despite everything she was risking and all she was contributing, the fact that she was being overlooked just grated on her nerves. Honestly, she couldn't even see what was so great about the blonde. Sure, she was cute and had spunk and perseverance, but that was about it. Katherine was gorgeous, had serious attitude, and you wanted to talk about perseverance? Try outrunning an Original for 500 years! Katherine was the real deal! But did anyone around here seem to figure that out? No. They were all too busy worrying about Chloe Sullivan. It was getting to the point where she was going to break something.

Life just wasn't fair.

Blondie already had two boytoys, and Katherine had been all aboard the Schlean train when it'd been all about the Supernatural Diaries. Chloe needed to stay here with Sam and Dean and leave Stefan and Damon alone, so Katherine could have her boys back again. Because Stefan and Damon were Katherine's. She'd made them everything they were, and just because she'd abandoned them for a couple of hundred of years to fend for themselves didn't mean that she had any plans on letting some little fledgling to take her rightful place in their lives. No way in hell.

The vampire gazed down below at the garden where the hunter and the cousin were practicing, the hunter beginning to teach the human cousin vampire hunting skills. Katherine had seen that Stefan had won Lois a little over to his side with his speech earlier on, but with the arrival of the Winchesters afterwards things had fallen into perspective and Lois Lane was definitely on Team Winchester when it came to Chloe Sullivan, as was Katherine Piece. She had a feeling that they would become good friends and allies, as neither woman wanted the blonde to end up with the two male vampires in their midst. She was going to have to approach the human female when she was alone and propose a truce and alliance, one she knew that the brunette would be a fool to reject it.

"So, how much do the Originals know about me?" Chloe's voice caused Katherine to turn and find the blonde behind her. "We know that they don't know I can enter a home uninvited, so that's a plus. What else don't they know?"

"How should I know?" Katherine frowned, annoyed that the younger vampire had managed to sneak up on her. "If you weren't so careless then their spy wouldn't have found or seen you and then we wouldn't be in this mess."

"You see, if we're going to work together I think we should drop that act, at least between the two of us," Chloe announced as she leaned against the wall next to Katherine, arms folded over her chest. "Because we both know that there wasn't any Original spy."

Katherine froze. "Of course there was. How else would they-?"

"Oh come on Katherine, what are the chances of two people stalking us? Really?" There was a sneer on Chloe's face that reminded Katherine of her own. "The only sensible, logical, and thus probable scenario is that you were watching us, you saw how close Stefan and Damon were getting with me and you got jealous." Chloe didn't even sound angry as she correctly surmised the situation, her greens on Katherine. "They've both told me about how it was when you were in Mystic Falls with them when they were human, how you wanted to be a threesome coupling with them, and how they were not happy with the thought at all. I'm sure that the fact that I was somehow managing to live out your fantasy life was driving you insane with jealousy and after a while you just couldn't take it anymore. You started to think about what to do to get rid of me, but killing me would not endear you to Stefan or Damon so you'd have to do away with me in a way that wouldn't leave you looking like the guilty party. No, you'd have to do it in a way that you'd look completely innocent and after it was done you could insert yourself back into the picture, a picture you felt you should never have been out of anyway."

Katherine licked her lips, uncomfortable with just how right this girl was so far.

"And then you realized my abilities were uncommon and you thought of how useful that could be: kill two birds with one stone. You could bargain me and my abilities in exchange for pardon for whatever you've done to piss off the equivalent to the Vampire King. That is how the Originals found out about me. You told them in an effort to buy your own freedom so you wouldn't have to keep running away." Chloe pulled a blonde strand out of her face and behind her ear. "You didn't do it in person, you're not stupid, you've survived as long as you have by being overly cautious. You sent a messenger. But not only didn't Klaus forgive you for whatever you've done to royally piss him off, but he took your information and still used it. He probably let you know in his own way that not only would he use me to get what he wanted, but once he had me, that he'd come after you with all those added resources and you'd have no where to run anymore." Chloe shook her head. "That's why you're here 'helping us', because you're really helping yourself, trying desperately to clean up after the mess that you caused."

Katherine licked her lips. "So I suppose Damon and Stefan are waiting somewhere with stakes and bad attitudes."

Chloe's lips twitched wryly. "They don't know. They still think some random spy saw me."

Katherine's eyes widened in shock. "Why-?"

"What good would it make to tell them?" Chloe raised an eyebrow before she sighed and leaned her head hard against the wall. "And anyway, we need you, undead." She tilted her head in Katherine's direction. "But I want you to know that if all this goes south, and if the Originals somehow force me to work for them, and if anyone I love gets hurt-especially the people in this building now-I will make youwish you'd kept your jealous trap shut."

Katherine observed the blonde curiously. "I've lived my life in fear, in constant flight, for 500 years. What could you possibly do to me that could be worse than that?"

Chloe merely gave her a small smile as she walked away and left the room.

Katherine frowned as she shook her head of curls. "Impertinent child. Who does she think she is? Talking to me like that?"

And yet she hugged herself tightly and shivered.

-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-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-

"Is there any update on the Chloe Sullivan story that hit our news panel earlier?" Jason Kennedy from E!News wanted to know with a smile towards the camera. "I heard that there was some juicy Originals news somehow linked to her and Sam and Dean Winchester. How true is that, Catt?"

Catt Sadler gave a little squealing sound as she swung her hands around excitedly. "I'm so happy to say there is definite news on this!" She turned towards the camera as it zoomed onto her grinning face. "Various sources have confirmed that Kol Mikaelson, one of the Originals Vampires we just can not get enough, went by the set of Paranormal to personally deliver invitations to the ultra exclusive party that Niklaus Mikaelson, the head Original, will be throwing in a few nights. These invitations were delivered to Dean Winchester, and witnesses confirm that they were for Dean and Sam and that," she turned to Jason with excitement, her eyes twinkling, "there were also invitations for Lois Lane and Chloe Sullivan as well."

"I'm curious. Does this mean two invitations, as in the girls are their plus ones? Or were there four invitations? And if so… who will they be bringing?" Jason leaned forwards. "Because, remember, Chloe hasbeen linked to other men, and Lois is in an on-again off-again relationship with Sam and Dean's father, Oscar nominated actor John Winchester-who they say is courting another Oscar nomination for his performance in Gregory Magnus. And we can't forget the flurry of women Sam and Dean have been linked to ever since Chloe went off the map."

"True, true," Catt nodded. "But I'm a huge fan of Paranormal and have to admit I ship Lois/Dean and Chloe/Sam, so I'm hoping that there are only two tickets. And who knows, now that Chloe's back, maybe the rumors are true. Maybe she will join the show like Lois has, the abandoned Soulmate plot-line will be picked up, and she and Sam will end up together." She winked at the camera. "Writers-make it happen!"

Jason chuckled. "I don't know, I have to admit, these new mystery guys intrigue me. You might be a Schleaner but I think I'll be a true American and go for the underdog team. I'm going to root for what they're calling Team Salvatore." Pictures appeared of on the screen of Chloe with Damon and Stefan, pictures that had been taken from the "First Official Chlalvatore Website". "These pictures just say it all I think."

"We're going to go to war then, Jason Kennedy." Catt teased.

Jason grinned. "Bring it on, Catt Sadler!"

"We've just received a tweet from VannaInTheHouse," Catt announced as she turned to look at the screen behind her, where the picture of a pretty, chubby half-asian girl could be seen next to some words on the screen. "She says: Schlean & Chlalvatore don't have to fight. That's why Schleanvatore exists." Catt blushed and grinned naughtily. "Vanna, you bad girl you."

Jason chuckled. "Vanna, I have a feeling you write fan fiction."

"I'm going to have to Google her!" Catt winked just before the show cut to a commercial for Herbal Essence.

The television was turned off.

"Stefan Salvatore," Nikalus Mikaelson raised an eyebrow as he smirked. "There's a name I haven't thought of in a very long time."

Stop addicting me to this story!!! More Katherine and Chloe, hints at some Katherine and Lois team up (or blow up, if Lois has her wits about her), E!News, Klaus and Stefan...

Seriously! You have to finish The New Circle first.

*looks stern*

Although, I wouldn't mind a double update soon?

I'm with Vanna, Schleanvatore all the way! *grins* I love Katherine being all jealous of Chloe and Chloe being brilliant and knowing Katherine sold her out. I totally forgot the Stefan and Klaus know each other from before Mystic Falls. Yay for Clark showing up and accepting Chloe. The E!News bit was hilarious and I'm looking forward to the party.
