“I know you’ve been thinking about that all day, so let’s get it over with so we can be friends.” – Young Chloe kissing Young Clark
Clark was assigned by the school to show Chloe around on her first day, and she immediately asked where to buy a copy of the Daily Planet so she could “keep in touch with civilization”. When he showed her around the Kent Farm, she wrongly assumed he was Amish.
However, when Clark showed her the bookcase in the Kent barn loft, Chloe was impressed and praised him for being a “gentleman farmer”. She then admitted to Clark that she didn’t make a lot of friends because her mother left the family and she spent way too much time reading. When she mentioned her favorite book Tales of the Weird Unexplained being https://loansolution.com/payday-loans-ga/ lost in the home-moving, Clark supersped away to the local library and fetched a copy of the book for her. Chloe was genuinely touched and gave him his (and her own) first kiss. Since that day, Chloe developed a profound crush on Clark, as he was the first person next to Pete Ross who was nice to her in the new town. 
Clark and Chloe worked together on their high school newspaper, the Smallville Torch with Chloe as the editor. She was Clark’s “boss” in a way, supervising and assigning his contributions to the paper. While at school, Clark saved Chloe’s life from murder attempts by Coach Walt Arnold and Sean Kelvin.
After Chloe was pushed out of a window by thieves at the Luthor Mansion and broke her arm, Clark felt guilty over not being able to save her and tried his best to bring the thieves to justice. Claiming he was simply concerned, Clark became defensive and jealous each time Chloe received attention from another boy. Despite this, Clark was seemingly oblivious to the fact that Chloe had a crush on him until they encountered Kyle Tippet, who put Chloe in a hypnotic trance and told her to do something she always wanted to do. She kissed Clark passionately, but then could not recall doing it a moment later.
Freshman year, Chloe was given the assignment to write a biography about a classmate and began investigating Clark’s adoption. When Clark ran for class president, he got angry at Chloe when she endorsed fellow student Paul Chan over him, but he later realized that she was only being objective and they made up. He is clueless until psychic boy Ryan James also told Clark that Chloe had a crush on him and wanted him to ask her to the Spring Formal.
When Clark forgot to register them for a student journalism convention, Chloe got upset that Clark never seemed to take her seriously and they argued. When Chloe began a relationship with Justin Gaines out of frustration, Clark was suspicious of Justin but Chloe thought he was just jealous. Clark later admitted to Lana that he was indeed a bit jealous. He asked Lex Luthor what he should do about his feelings for both girls, saying that he liked Chloe but still held hope that he and Lana would have something. Lex told him that he would never have either girl if he didn’t take risk and decide. Clark repaired their friendship after saving Chloe’s life when Justin attacked her, and offered to take her to the convention.
When Chloe was kidnapped, Clark did everything he could to find her and saved her from being buried alive. Faced with the thought that he could have lost her forever, Clark got up the nerve to ask Chloe to the Spring Formal and they shared a dance and a kiss. However, just when it seemed that their relationship might take a different direction, Clark left Chloe alone at the dance to rescue Lana Lang from tornadoes.
