A violent encounter between Chloe and Clark threatens to destroy their friendship forever.
Following the devastating events of Crisis, Clark and Chloe attempt to rebuild their friendship against all odds.
(Sequel to Muscle Memory)
Chloe finally gets answers about why Clark has been stealing into her bed every night only to steal her memory away with a kiss. Was it really just Jor-El’s plot to restore the Kryptonian race or were there bigger secrets to uncover? Why does everything come back to the night Clark Kent was declared dead? Can she resist the heat compelling her to give into what Clark wants or is surrender the only hope for her future? The truth remains Chloe’s darkest secret.
Author's Note: Set between the end of season 8 and the beginning of season 9 (though I fudged the timeline a little and assumed she had her little conversation with Emil about the order and delivery of some of computer equipment for Watchtower much earlier, but that really has very little impact on the story)
After Chloe agrees to go to the spring formal with him, Clark's mind is not on his history class.
