Summary: Lois confesses her feelings to Clark.
Here's my first story…I hope you enjoy it. Any and all replies, comments, criticisms, etc. can be sent to email@example.com
Please keep the following things in mind while reading this…
a) I am only 16 years old. b) I have never written fan-fiction before. c) I've only ever seen two Lois & Clark episodes ('Lucky Leon' and 'Requiem for a Super Hero')
And now, on with the show…
"Clark, I love you."
"What?!?" Clark didn't trust his ears, super-hearing not withstanding.
"I said I love you."
That's it, he was still dreaming. He hadn't been woken up at two in the morning by the pounding on his door. He hadn't used his x-ray powers to see Lois standing on the other side of the door, looking beautiful, even in her old sweat pants and tattered T-shirt. He hadn't opened the door, and before saying two words, had Lois start babbling about not being able to sleep and her feelings and Scardino and Superman and chocolate ice cream. And he definitely hadn't heard her say those four little words he had been aching to hear since the first moment he had met her. Any minute now he would wake up, back in his bed, with Lois nowhere in sight.
"Clark, are you listening to me?" Lois was still there, standing in front of him, hands on hips, looking very impatient. "I just spilled my guts and told you I loved you, and you're just standing there with your mouth hanging open!"
"Uhhhh," was all he could say. Clark rubbed his hands over his eyes, looking as though he had just woken up, which, in fact, he had. He stumbled over to his couch and plopped down wearily. Lois gently sat down beside him.
"Are you okay?" Lois asked softly. Getting no response, she peered into his gorgeous brown eyes as if looking for reassurance that he was alright. Clark's face was totally without emotion. "Maybe this was a bad idea. I'm sorry, I'll go now." Lois started to stand.
"No!!" Clark regained his voice. He quickly grabbed her arm and pulled her back down to the couch. Down on top of him, actually. She laid there, her arms on his chest, her face just inches from his. "Don't go," he whispered, "I'm glad you came I'm glad you told me…what it was that you told me."
Lois leaned in and kiss him tenderly. "I love you."
"You have no idea how long I've waited for you to say that to me. Since that first day I saw you. I've loved you for as long as I can remember." Clark held her to him, her head resting against his chest, praying that he'd never have to let her go. "I have loved you for so long, and there were so many times I thought I'd lost you…"
"Shhhh. You never have to worry about that again. I'm yours and I always will be." Lois lifted her head, and kissed Clark. The kiss was full of all the things yet to come. Delicate, passionate and so full of love.
Lois slowly pulled from the intimate embrace. "May I have this dance?" she said, standing up and holding out her hand. Taking her hand, they walked over to his stereo, and found a soft, romantic song. Clark pulled her to him, their bodies fitting tight together, and when the melody began, they danced slowly, holding each other close.
There's so much I want to tell you I don't know where to start I don't claim to be a poet Even simple words come hard But I can tell you heart to heart
You are to me what the moon is to the night What the rain is to summer When I look in your eyes I see What heaven is to eternity You are to me
Call it fate…call it destiny Call it life's greatest mystery I know there's no greater truth I was made for loving you…
Neither Lois nor Clark heard when the song ended…
