Summary: In this little spin from the episode "Virtually Destroyed," Lois has other thoughts on her mind when she learns the truth about Clark's past experiences, or lack thereof.
This is a very short plot untwist based upon "Virtually Destroyed" written by Dean Cain.
"*I'm* a little different," Clark said hesitantly.
"Sure," Lois said, looking up at him and encouraging him to go on.
He took another deep breath and began. "I mean, I've had girlfriends. I've dated."
She nodded, her full attention on him.
"But *that* thing…" Clark said apprehensively. "…the intimacy threshold…the *big* threshold…" he said with a nervous chuckle. He sighed, looked down and then looked back at Lois. "I've never really…crossed it."
"Clark Jerome Kent!" Lois yelled and, grabbing his arm, pulled him across the street into the Luxor Hotel.
As they entered the hotel lobby, they discovered that they were in Lois' apartment.
"We're still in Virtual Reality," they both said together.
Suddenly, Jaxon Xavier appeared. Clark and Lois both grabbed him, and as they did, they touched his watch, and all three were hurtled back into the real world.
"You little nerd!" Lois shouted and pushed him back into a corner. "I would do something more drastic, but I've got some personal business to take care of. Let's go Clark!"
Ten minutes later, once they had arrived in Clark's apartment, Clark took Lois in his arms.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" he asked.
"Shut up, Clark. I'm a woman on a mission," she said as she pulled him toward the bed.
