“Now what did you forget?” AC asked, groaning at the thought of having to turn around and head home once again for another thing Chloe had forgotten to do or get.
“I just forgot to get milk for the week at the store earlier,” Chloe replied.
“This isn’t like you… why are you forgetting so much stuff today? What’s on your mind?”
“Nothing,” Chloe lied quickly. “We should stop at the store later tonight to pick up the milk.”
“Chloe…” AC started, glancing over at her worriedly. “What’s wrong? And it’s not nothing.”
“I’m just worried about Clark’s and Lois’s engagement party tonight… that’s it.” Chloe stated, hoping he would just leave it as that. AC stared at her, confusion and surprise in his eyes.
“Why would you be worried about the party?”
Chloe shrugged, “I don’t know… I just am.”
AC thought silently for a second before asking, “Do you still love Clark?”
Chloe’s eyes widened, “What?! No!”
AC shook his head sadly, “You suck at lying, you know?”
“No, AC, you don’t understand. Look you know deep down I will always love Clark. However, I have not loved him like that in a very long time. This isn’t about the party or Clark or Lois.”
“Then what is it about?” AC questioned and Chloe shook her head sadly.
“Nothing that I want to talk about right now… can we just forget about it for the time being? I swear I’ll tell you later.” Chloe stated, and AC glanced at her skeptically. Chloe rolled her eyes, “I promise I’ll tell you later.”
“All right, I’ll drop it for right now, but you’re going to tell me as soon as we get home.” AC stated, turning his attention back to the road.
Chloe softly let out a deep breath of relief. She really did not have the courage to tell him right now. I hope that Lois will be able to think up a good enough lie to tell AC so I would not have to tell him later that night. Chloe thought silently to herself.
A/N: I know your all questioning what Chloe does not want to tell AC about, but honestly, I have no idea. I meant for her to be pregnant and not ready to tell AC yet, but I think it could be something else – she could have cheated, etc. Therefore, I grant you as the reader to decide what you believe she was hiding.
