Chloe glanced around the crowded room and smiled. She couldn’t believe how amazing the turn-out was. About a week ago Oliver had come to the Watchtower headquarters frantic, talking about how his event coordinator had quit at the last minute and he needed help planning the Queen Industries annual Charity Gala.

He spent an hour convincing her to help him plan the party for New Year’s Eve and when she finally conceded the grin he had given her made her weak in the knees. So, now here she was, a week later co-hosting the event.

Chloe thanked the bartender for the drink as she lifted the hem of her dress slightly and walked down the stairs toward the balcony. Oliver had rented out the Ace of Clubs for the party and as she walked outside and stood looking out over the Metropolis skyline, a cool breeze grazed her skin.

Oliver was in the midst of talking to one of his board members when he caught the sight of blonde hair out of the corner of his eye. He tuned out the voice in front of him and turned toward the balcony. He watched as the curls in her hair shifted in the wind.

Oliver turned back toward his board member, excused himself and glanced at his watch before heading out on the balcony. He came up behind her slowly and her body shivered when another light breeze blew. Oliver shrugged off his jacket and placed it around her shoulders. Chloe jumped slightly, startled at his presence. He grinned and she rolled her eyes.

“I hate when you do that…I swear you’re getting as bad a Clark.”

“I doubt that’s true…Penny for your thoughts?”

Chloe shrugged.

“I just can’t believe another year’s past already. So much time…things are so different and yet…so much the same.”

Oliver nodded as he leaned his back against the railing so he could face her.

“Yeah…time does go by quickly. It’s only a couple minutes until midnight…what are you doing out here all alone?”

She grinned up at him.

“Enjoying the night.”


The countdown had started inside the club and as Oliver took a step towards Chloe, she raised an eyebrow.

“What are you doing?”

He cupped her cheek and her heartbeat sped up as their bodies touched. Oliver leaned down and his words were whispered.

“Enjoying the night…”

He grinned. People chanted in the background as his head descended to her lips. Five…four, three, two and as one was shouted, and buzzers went off Oliver’s lips captured Chloe’s in a passionate kiss. His lips molded to hers as their tongues dueled for dominance and their arms wrapped around each other.

This kiss felt like it lasted hours even though it was only seconds when he pulled back. Her eyes fluttered open and when her eyes met Oliver’s there was a look she’d never seen there before. She licked her lips and he swallowed hard.

“Happy New Year Sidekick…”

“Happy New Year Ollie…”

And just like that…the New Year brought with it a new love…
