Because he was intelligent.

Because he was kind.

Because he was thoughtful.

Because he just made sense.

These were only a handful of the reasons Lois Lane chose Clark Kent. Clark — her partner, her best friend.

Not the superhero in blue spandex and a red cape.

Not the man who could fly her to Paris in four minutes.

No. She chose Clark. Dependable, ordinary, near-sighted Clark.

Because she loved him. His smile. His wit. His character. Even his unfortunate taste in neckwear.

She loved Clark.

The realization still left her a little weak in the knees.

If only she could work up the courage to tell him.

He'd won, even if he didn't know it yet.

Clark Kent had beaten Superman.
