She hadn't understood the weird look Clark gave her when he had caught her. Okay, so what if falling six stories wasn't exactly in the plan for the night? Right before she fell, Chloe had been able to knock the assailant out cold in the process. Which meant Jimmy was safe, which totally the important part.

He had responded flatly to her comment about his timing though, and when she had mouthed him a thank you before cutting Jimmy off with a kiss, he had only given her another confused look.

Eventually, Jimmy did let her go. It only took a good five kisses and fifteen reassurances that everything was alright. As much as she wanted to call Clark out on his weird behavior, she had other things to do first. Namely: visit Lana.

And discover that, yet again, she had another secret to keep.

Clark's hit every dead end he can think of in his search for more information about Lana's shooting. That only leaves one place left for him to go: the Daily Planet to see what Chloe's been able to dig up. Despite her odd behaviour recently.

"Hey," he says, whooshing in beside her desk. "How's Lana doing?"

"Recovering," Chloe says, reaching for the papers that go flying when Clark comes running in to the room. She gives him a look - it's a normal look for her: no superspeeding near the desk. And then sighs.

"Kinda taking this whole being shot thing rather well, actually. Which is good, all things considered."

From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"Good. That's... good." It's taking almost everything Clark has in him to not go see her himself, but given his recent interactions with Lex, it's just not an option.

Then he ventures cautiously, "And how are you doing?"

Date: 2008-04-19 09:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
Okay. She's not a hundred percent sure, but Chloe is almost certain that question seems a little out of place in the grand scheme of things.

"Um, the police came shortly after you left and arrested the assailant. He was found murdered in lockup about fifteen minutes ago." She shrugs, brows wrinkling as she looks at him. "So, I think it's safe to assume Jimmy and I won't be ending up on anyone's hit list anytime soon."

Date: 2008-04-19 09:17 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"Well, I'm not going to complain about that," he replies, half sitting on a corner of her desk, though still eyeing her carefully. Not that it's a good thing the hitman was murdered, but Chloe and Jimmy being safe goes in Clark's good book no matter what.

"What about ... everything else?"

From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
The coffee gets moved to the other side of the desk. She doesn't Clark enough not to have it spilled when he leaves.

"What about everything else?"

Date: 2008-04-19 09:22 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"You know." She does, doesn't she?

"Like Jimmy. What was up with that?"

Date: 2008-04-19 09:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
Her eyes narrow and Clark gets a look.

"What do you mean?"

Date: 2008-04-19 09:44 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
Clark leans in just a little, because he's not really sure this should be getting around the office. "You kissed him last night. Far be it from me to tell you how to cope with anything, but don't you think that's a little extreme?"

Date: 2008-04-19 09:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
"I think I can deal with Lana being shot, Clark. As sucky as it is, near-death experiences are kind of a day to day occurrence around here."

A shrug. She's gotten used to it.

"Between listening to Jimmy babble incessantly about how I survived that fall or kissing him? I'm totally going to take option two."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:07 pm (UTC)
hero_farmboy: (attention elsewhere)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"Uh, it was a pretty good distraction tactic, I'll give you that," Clark replies slowly, still watching her carefully. "It's just not really like you, that's all."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
She tilts her head, giving Clark another look.

"Why not?"

Date: 2008-04-19 10:20 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
How to put this delicately without bringing up what happened between them or her break up with Riley?

"Well it's... Jimmy."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
She waves a hand dismissively.

"I kind of fail to see what that has to do with anything."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:25 pm (UTC)
hero_farmboy: (mulling things over)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"It's not really fair to him, though." And wow does this feel weird saying. "I mean, you know he likes you."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
A slow nod. "I'm kind of aware of that, Clark."

Date: 2008-04-19 10:28 pm (UTC)
hero_farmboy: (caught in the headlights)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"And you don't feel bad at all about using him like that?" Clark finds that pretty hard to believe. And very un-Chloe like. In fact, this whole conversation just seems off somehow.

Date: 2008-04-20 09:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
And now Chloe really is confused.

"Um, Jimmy hasn't ever complained before when I kissed him to cut him off of some rambley and unnecessary speech."

Date: 2008-04-26 06:56 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
And Clark is confused right back at her.

"You mean you've done that before? Look, Chlo, I know you're upset about everything, but this is not the way to deal with it."

Date: 2008-04-26 07:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
"Clark, I really had to demean Lana like this," she answers with a sigh and hand wave, "but surviving nearly-fatal wounds is kind of becoming a day to day occurrence around here. She's going to be fine. So I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, 'kay?"

Date: 2008-04-26 07:27 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
So she's chosen to ignore it. Well, clearly, this calls for some tough love. SO to speak.

"Chloe, we're friends. I think we... well established that. So I can't just let you brush this off like it's nothing. Breaking up with Riley was hard, I know it was, but you have to deal with it."

Beat.

"And not by jumping into a relationship immediately with someone else."

Date: 2008-04-26 07:29 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
It's moments like this that Chloe wishes she was the one with x-ray vision. If species of kryptonite exist that make Clark lose all inhibitions, there have to be species that make Clark go off his rocker.

And if so, this has to be proof. Assuming, of course, she can find said kryptonite on him.

"Who?"

Date: 2008-04-26 07:34 pm (UTC)
hero_farmboy: (caught in the headlights)
From: [personal profile] hero_farmboy
"Riley." Clark eyes her. "Your boyfriend? Milliwyas?"

Date: 2008-04-26 07:35 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torch-reporter.livejournal.com
Okay. Maybe it's best to ask.

"Clark, you haven't been infested with... I don't know, some crazy-making kryptonite, have you?"
