A/N: This chapter is more or less an interlude to the next... which I am writing now.
The difference one name does to her life is so great, she would have never thought so before.
But Dean Winchester did it. He has wormed himself into her thoughts and into her dreams. Like only one other boy had before him. She only ever felt or thought she felt for Clark.
At first he was nothing more than a rival on her story hunts. She would rather lie to him than trade information he wanted. But now, after months of knowing him. And knowing him by his real name, everything was different.
The innocent flirting had at first been exciting and thrilling. When she had tried to probe for more, it actually showed what decent man Dean Winchester really was. Even though he always tried to show differently.
“So, I heard there has been some really handsome writer around... investigating my story.” She smiled and walked towards Dean, who had been waiting by the front of his car upon seeing Chloe.
“Well, well... if it isn’t the girl who is all sunshine and candy.”
She smirked at him. “So... what do you have for me?”
He smirked back, “What do you have for me?”
She rolled her eyes but then took a couple of steps until they were eye to eye. Or better to say eye to chin, because she was a little shorter than he was. He looked down at her, she stared up at him, mischief in her eyes and smile.
She traced circles on his jacket. And he just stared at her with interest and a little confusion.
They had never done anything more than snarky conversations and their usual flirty talk. This was her first intiation for more.
“Well, what do you want from me?” she asked, batting her eye lashes at him, and using her best sexy voice. (All smoky and hot, just as Lois had taught her, that she could manipulate men better. Lois swears it always works.)
He looked like he had to restrain himself, a little out of breath and absolutely flushed. Then he gathered her arms and pulled her away from him.
“Maybe we should wait with this...” he looked serious at her. “Do you have any idea that you’re playing with fire?”
She raised an eye brow in question.
“Some guys wouldn’t hesitate to take advantage of what you just offered.”
“I respect you too much to do so... besides, you’re too young...”
“You’re telling me that you feel nothing?”
“I feel something alright... but it don’t change the facts that you’re too young and I’m older...”
She smirked, “Not too old?”
Their relationship changed after this little encounter.
Chloe liked to think that this was the moment that would cement their future.
