Chapter Thirty-Eight


Lois sighed as she climbed the steps to the loft where Clark was working on his homework. He looked around at her.

“What’s wrong?”

“Tell me I don’t have to go see the general tomorrow.”

“You don’t have to go see the general tomorrow.”

“Nice try, spaceboy,” she said, wrinkling her nose. “But you know when the general says jump you have to ask how high?”

Clark got out of the chair and went to the couch, pulling her down to sit beside him.

“Honey, I know he was a bit rough on you when Lucy took off, but maybe you should give him a break. He probably wasn’t thinking too clearly when he first found out about her.”

“Well, it helps that your mom chewed him out about his attitude.” She smiled. “I never thought I’d see the day when the general is scared of anyone.”

“Yeah,” Clark laughed. “But my mom can be seriously scary when she wants to. And she has never liked your dad’s attitude towards you.”

He held her close and rubbed her back. Lois sat with her head against his chest, loving the gentle way he was stroking her.

“You know what would really relax me,” she hinted.

Clark stopped rubbing and looked at her, reading the meaning in her eyes. He slowly began undoing the buttons of her shirt. Lois began nibbling on his earlobe. Clark closed his eyes in bliss.

“God, you drive me crazy when you do that,” he told her.

“Good. Cause that’s what I’m gonna be doing tomorrow. Going crazy. Where are your mom and dad?”

Clark listened. “They’re watching tv.”

Lois flung her arms around his neck. “Kiss me,” she ordered.

Clark obliged, pressing his lips to hers. Lois slid her tongue in-between, winding it around his, deepening the kiss. She felt him slowly lower her to the couch, then strip her.

Once naked, Lois wrapped her legs around his waist, pulling him down to her.

The phone ringing roused them from dozing. Clark sat up suddenly, then scrambled off the couch to grab the phone. Lois tried not to laugh as his leg became tangled in the clothes they’d thrown on the floor and he hopped on one foot trying to get to the phone.

He finally managed to pick it up.

“Hello?”

“Clark.” Lois could hear Chloe’s voice quite clearly. “There was an accident at Luthorcorp. Lex is in the hospital. You wanna meet me there?”

“Uh yeah, okay. Are you on your way now?”

“Yep. See you there in a bit.”

Lois frowned at him. “What’s that all about?”

“Dunno. C’mon get dressed,” he said speeding into his clothes. “I’ll just go tell Mom and Dad where we’re going.”

Chloe met them at the hospital.

“I don’t think it’s too serious,” she said apologetically. “I think I heard the doc say something about cracked ribs. They’re releasing him. But Dr Sinclair’s been admitted.”

“What were they working on?” Clark asked.

“I don’t know. But there was some kind of explosion,” Chloe answered. She led the way down the corridor and knocked on the door to the examining room.

Lex smiled as he looked up at them.

“I should have guessed you’d be on my trail, Chloe,” he said amiably.

“You okay, Lex?” Lois asked.

“I’m fine. Thanks for asking. How did you know I was here?”

“One of your EMTs is a friend of mine,” Chloe said. “And I called Clark.”

“What happened?” Clark asked.

“We were conducting an experiment.”

“From the look of you,” Lois said, seeing the bruise on his torso, “I’m guessing it didn’t go well.”

Lex reached for his shirt and put it on, wincing a little. Lois grabbed the other side and helped him.

“Thanks. Yeah, the experiment didn’t go exactly as I hoped, but it was worth the risk.”

“I’m sure,” Chloe answered. “To Luthorcorp’s bottom line.”

Lex regarded her mildly, without a trace of anger at her implication.

“To the world, Chloe.”

The three of them frowned at him as he stood up.

“Look, why don’t you all come to the lab with me. I need to check on things there and I can show you what Dr Sinclair and I have been working on. I really think you’re going to like this one.”

Clark shrugged. Lex was acting a little off, but at least he seemed to be in a good mood, so he thought it would be okay. “All right. Let’s go then.”

Chloe still looked sceptical. She grabbed Clark and pulled him aside.

“Clark, wait. I’m not buying any story from a Luthor without corroboration. So I’m gonna go talk to Dr Sinclair and find out what he has to say about this.”

“Okay. We’ll go with Lex. Call me later.”

“Just be careful, okay? Both of you? I mean, no matter what he says, LuthorCorp experiments never end well.”

Clark and Lois followed Lex out of the hospital. Since Lex’s car was still at LuthorCorp and Clark had driven the truck over, they all piled into the truck. Lex looked at Lois.

“By the way, I understand it’s your birthday on Saturday.”

She nodded.

“Have you made any plans?”

“We’re going for dinner in Metropolis,” Clark told him. “Mom and dad, Chloe and General Lane are coming.”

“Are you going to tell me where or is it meant to be a secret,” Lex teased with a smile.

“We’re going to Margarita’s,” Clark answered, his eyes on the road.

He could see Lex frowning in his peripheral vision.

“Mexican? Oh no, I can recommend somewhere much nicer.”

“It’s Lois’ birthday and she got to choose the place,” Clark said firmly.

“I’m sorry. You’re right, of course.” He fell silent for a moment. “Are you two still planning on getting married after graduation?”

“Yes,” Lois said.

“If you would like, I can help with organising the reception. You can even hold it at the mansion.”

“Um, that’s really nice of you, Lex, but we really just want something simple,” Lois answered.

“Really, it would be no trouble,” Lex insisted. “Not that I’m expecting to be asked to be your best man,” he smiled at Clark.

Clark frowned at his friend. “Why wouldn’t you be? I mean, we are friends.” He shrugged. “We haven’t got to the planning stages yet. We’re just trying to get through the rest of the year.”

“Well, graduation is coming up fast. You really should get organised,” Lex gently chided.

“Didn’t you organise a wedding in 48 hours?” Lois asked.

Lex chuckled. “Yes, but then again I had a team of caterers, not to mention staff at the mansion to organise it. And I’ll be glad to offer their services.”

“Thanks, Lex. We’ll think about it,” Clark told him.

They’d arrived at the gates of the LuthorCorp plant. The guard saw Lex in the truck and waved them in.

A security team was already going over the debris in the lab when they walked in. Lex quietly asked them to take a break while he led Lois and Clark inside. As soon as Clark saw the damage, he figured Lex was lucky to be alive.

Lex led them over to what looked like a hydroponics unit. There were seedlings growing in boxes. Clark frowned at his friend.

“This is what your secret experiment was about? Gardening?”

Lex shook his head.

“No, Clark. It’s about the future.” He waved his hand over the seedlings, then indicated another crop of apples.

“If my dad planted a crop of these, he’d never have to worry about the harvest again,” Clark said.

“Until it arrived on your dinner table,” Lex said, handing Clark an apple. He offered one to Lois as well, but she shook her head. Clark noticed she was still looking around at the debris, trying to figure out what had happened.

“Taste it,” Lex said as Clark hesitated to take a bite into the apple. “Those were grown from irradiated seeds.”

Clark took a bite, but there was something not quite right. It tasted horrible. As if it had been ripening too long.

“It tastes ...”

“Rotten?” Lex nodded. “Yeah, that’s what we’ve been wrestling with. See, we’ve successfully destroyed the genes that make a plant weak, giving it the ability to thrive under the harshest conditions. But the process also affects the fruit it bears, and not for the better.”

“Is this what you were trying to fix when the explosion happened?” Lois asked.

Lex nodded. “Dr Sinclair thought increasing the temperature of the reaction would solve the problem. We pushed it further than we ever have, but the meteor rock became unstable.”

Clark tried not to show a reaction, but Lex caught his sharp intake of breath. Lex knew how he felt about the meteor rocks.

“If I can find a way to make this work,” Lex continued, “LuthorCorp could put an end to hunger and famine forever. I’m hoping there’s something in Dr Sinclair’s notes that’ll explain exactly what went wrong.”

He went over to the safe and opened it. Clark immediately felt the nausea and pain he usually got around meteor rock. He grunted in pain. Lois put a hand on his arm, looking at him in concern. Lex must have heard him as well as he turned, concern in his expression.

“Clark, are you all right?”

Clark backed away from the open safe. Lois looked at Lex.

“Clark wasn’t feeling well earlier. I think he had something at school which didn’t agree with him.”

Lex nodded in understanding. “That apple probably exacerbated it. I’m sorry.”

“It’s not your fault, Lex,” Clark said. “I probably should have said something.”

Lois canted her head. “Honey, why don’t you go outside and get some fresh air?”

“Yeah, you’re right.”

Lois squeezed his hand, watching as he walked out. She turned back to Lex who was also watching with a worried frown.

“Are you sure he’s okay?”

“Yeah,” she said with a shrug. “You know what cafeteria food is like. I think he ate the meatloaf special.”

“And here I thought Clark could eat anything,” Lex commented with a laugh.

“Are you kidding?” she smiled. “Don’t let those bulging biceps fool you. Smallville has a weak stomach. I mean he’s so used to all that down home corn-fed goodness, you know?”

“And you’re wanting Mexican for your birthday?”

“What can I say? I love torturing him.”

“I bet,” Lex chuckled. He picked up the sheaf of papers. “I’ve got all I need. Why don’t we go look for Clark?”

“Sure,” she smiled.

Lex seemed different, Lois decided. She wasn’t sure what had happened, but he seemed more open and friendly toward her. She had to admit that this was a Lex she could like. And could trust to be a good friend for Clark.

Lex left them at the truck, going to find his car. Clark drove back to the farm.

“Thanks for covering for me back there,” he said. “Do you think he believed you?”

“I don’t know. But he didn’t question it. Maybe the explosion gave him a wake-up call, you know?”

“Yeah, maybe,” Clark said with a frown.

Jonathan and Martha were still up when they got in.

“What happened?” Jonathan asked.

“It was some kind of explosion at LuthorCorp. Lex was experimenting with meteor rock.”

“Yeah, the place was a mess,” Lois said. Jonathan frowned at her, looking worried.

“You went down there with him?”

“Well, Lex wanted us to see what he was working on,” Clark explained.

“Let me get this straight. He asked you to look at something he’s working on which involves meteor rock.”

“Dad, it’s not like ...”

“Not like what? Clark, how many times do we have to tell you to be careful around Lex.”

Clark glowered at his father.

“You know something, Dad? Maybe Lex wouldn’t be the way he is if you had just cut him a break years ago! You’re forever accusing him of doing something nefarious.”

“And from what I can see I’ve been proved right on that score,” Jonathan said.

“You’re always talking about seeing the best in people, Dad. But the trouble is, you don’t practice what you preach!”

Clark stomped angrily upstairs. Lois looked helplessly at her father-in-law and shrugged. She ran up the stairs to the bedroom. Clark was sitting on the bed, getting undressed.

Lois sat beside him.

“What’s wrong?” she asked.

“I just ... I can’t stand the way he’s always treated Lex.”

“Well, honey, you have to admit that some of the things Lex has done in the past few months have been, well, questionable. And from what you’ve told me, it’s not just the past year.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Clark said savagely.

“Hey, don’t bite my head off, okay? I’m just trying to get you to see things from your dad’s point of view. I mean, Lex did have you investigated. Even when he said he’d stopped investigating you, he really hadn’t. Did you ever stop to think that it’s not what Lionel did to Lex or your dad’s opinion that matters? I mean, look at me. My dad is hardly the best role model when it comes to parenting, but I didn’t go and turn all evil, did I?”

Clark looked at her. “No.”

“I mean, the worst thing you can say I did was get so drunk I stole a tank to go to my senior prom, or smoke behind the bike shed. Look, all I’m saying is, if Lex really believed in being good, then none of that would made any difference.”

“But if Lionel had been a good father ...”

Lois sighed and shook her head.

“Look, I knew this girl in high school. She had the most amazing parents. Her mom baked cookies and did bake sales and her father was a lawyer, but he always made time for his family. And they were strict. I mean, not like really strict, but they had a set of rules which they expected the kids to stick to. And they loved their kids. I mean, really, really loved them. But she went off the rails anyway. Got with a bad crowd, started stealing, doing drugs.”

“What happened to her?”

“She died of a drug overdose six weeks before graduation.”

“Okay, maybe you have a point, but how do you know there wasn’t any stuff going on under the surface? Like, I don’t know, maybe he wasn’t such a great father.”

“No, I knew them. He was ... is a great dad. I mean, their younger daughter, she’s on the honour roll and everything. Besides, look at me and Lucy. She had every opportunity given to her and she blew it.”

“I guess.”

“You know, I saw this movie the other day. It was one of those, um, after school specials kind of deals. It was a true story. This girl, she was really smart but her mom was kind of a loser. She did drugs and drank a lot. And she was really abusive toward her daughter. But the girl, you know, she refused to be like that so she spent all her time at school and studied hard and she got into college. So, you know, just because that’s how you’re raised, it doesn’t mean you have to fit that mould.”

Clark sighed. “Okay, okay, I got your point the first time,” he said.

“Well good. Means you’re listening.” She punched him in the shoulder and got up, going to brush her teeth in the bathroom. She returned a few minutes later to find him sitting up in bed, leaning against the headboard. She got into bed beside him, running a finger over his bare chest.

“Do you think Lex was acting odd tonight?”

Clark frowned. “I don’t know. Maybe.”

Lois settled down in the bed with a soft sigh. “Well, keep an eye on him, okay? Meantime, let’s get some sleep.”

She lay with her arm across his chest. Clark sighed and turned off the lamp, curling up in the bed beside her, kissing the top of her head.

“G’night Smallville,” she said.

“Night Lois.”

Clark wanted to sleep late the next morning. When the alarm went off at six-thirty he reached out and slapped the sleep button, then rolled over, snuggling up to Lois.

“Small-ville!” she complained, squirming.

“What?” he said, his voice muffled.

“Your feet are cold!”

“Well, I can think of a way to get warmed up,” he said, nuzzling her cheek.

“Don’t start something you can’t finish,” Lois answered.

Clark moved his hand to cup her sex. She was warm and slick.

“Stop it, Clark, I mean it.”

“Aw, come on baby, you know you want to.”

“And you’ll be late for school,” she admonished him, shuddering. “Oh god, do that again,” she said as he rubbed himself against her, his cock already hard and wanting attention.

“You mean this?” he said, taking his cock in hand. He pulled down the pyjama pants she was wearing and rubbed his cock between her legs. Lois groaned.

“You are a very bad man, Clark Kent,” she told him, pulling her pants off to give him more room.

“Aww, you love it,” he told her.

She gasped as he entered her, his thumb on her clit. She was clearly struggling not to moan out loud, conscious of his parents being awake and probably walking around within hearing range.

Clark thrust hard inside her, feeling her hand squeeze his thigh.

“Oh god,” she moaned.

“Yeah!” he said.

They both came fairly quickly. Clark grinned as he kissed her shoulder.

“Nothing like morning sex to get the ol’ juices flowing,” he quipped.

Lois groaned, grabbing a pillow and hitting him with it. Clark laughed, grabbing another pillow and hitting her back. She turned around and pummelled him with her pillow. It escalated into a pillow fight. Lois dissolved into giggles as Clark’s pillow split and feathers began flying everywhere.

“Uh oh, look what you did,” she admonished him.

“Me? You started it!”

There was a knock on the door.

“Clark Kent, you’ll be late for school,” Mom called out. “And Lois, aren’t you seeing your father today?”

Clark pouted at his consort. “Now look what you did. You’re going to get me in trouble.”

“Aww, big baby!”

“That does it, consort!” he retorted, picking her up and putting her over his shoulder.

He carried her out to the bathroom, checking first to see where his mother was. He started the shower and dumped Lois on her feet in the shower. She squealed as the cold water hit her skin. Clark stripped her top off and threw it on the floor, then pulled his boxers off, getting in to join her.

Lois threw her arms around him, demanding a kiss.

“Don’t start something you can’t finish,” he told her, repeating what she’d said to him not long before.

Her eyes opened and she glared at him.

“Are you throwing my own words back in my face, Smallville?”

“Yup.”

She smacked his bare backside, the sound sharp under the water.

“Like I said, you are a very bad man.”

He kissed her hard. “And you’re a bad influence.”

He quickly soaped himself off, then did the same with Lois, loving the way she moaned in response as he massaged her breasts. He rinsed himself off. Lois grabbed the shampoo.

“I’m just gonna wash my hair,” she told him.

“Don’t take too long,” he answered. “Can you drop me off at school before you go to the base?”

“Of course sweetie. I’ll meet you downstairs.”

He kissed her nose and got out, grabbing a towel and wrapping it around his middle. As he left the bathroom, he bumped into his father.

“Morning son,” Dad said. “Lois still in the shower?”

“Yeah.” He hesitated in the hallway. “Dad, I ... I’m sorry. For what I said. Lois and I talked about it last night and she made me realise I wasn’t being fair to you. About Lex.”

Dad nodded. “Clark, I know I can get a bit over-protective at times. The truth is, sometimes your mother and I find it hard to let go. But you’re a man now. You’re old enough to make your own judgments about people. Including people like Lex. Having said that, however, I still want you to be careful.”

“I will, Dad. I better get dressed and get down to breakfast.” He turned at his bedroom door. “I love you Dad.”

“Love you too, son. Now go and get dressed. You’re dripping in the hallway,” he laughed.

It was almost seven-thirty by the time Lois came down for breakfast. Clark hugged her and handed her a plate of pancakes he’d made for her.

“Maple syrup’s on the table,” he told her.

“Mm, I love your pancakes Smallville.”

“I had a good teacher,” he said, smiling at his mother.

Lois sat down at the table and grabbed the bottle of syrup.

“Um, so I think I’ll be back from the base by the time the after school rush starts at the Talon,” she said.

Mom patted her hand as she sat down with her cup of coffee.

“Take your time, sweetie. You and your dad have a few things to work out.”

“Just don’t let him rattle you,” Dad advised. “You’re an adult and you’re part of our family too. And he needs to recognise that.”

“Thanks. I won’t,” she promised.

Half an hour later, Lois parked her car just outside the school gate. Clark leaned over and kissed her passionately. Lois’ eyes shone with love as he reluctantly pulled away.

“Have a good day at school sweetie,” she said.

“And don’t forget, if the general gets to be too much, you can always call me.”

“I know. I love you.”

“Love you too. See you tonight.”

Chloe was waiting for him at the main entrance.

“Whoa,” she said. “Talk about hot. I swear I’m gonna need a cold shower after seeing that.”

Clark flung an arm around his best friend’s shoulders.

“Ah, don’t worry, Chloe. I’m sure there’s plenty of talent ready, willing and able to keep those home fires burning.”

“I think I’ll just live vicariously through you two for now,” she grinned. “Come on. We don’t want to be late for first period.”

“Yeah, yeah.”

***

Lois parked her car in the base parking lot and walked up towards her father’s office. He was meant to be having one of his rare days off, but knowing her father he would be there making sure everyone under his command knew what their duties were for the day.

A non-com officer looked at her.

“Miss Lane?”

“Yes. I’m here to see my father.”

“He’s waiting for you in his office.”

She smirked. “Yeah, where else would he be?”

She entered the office. Her father was speaking to a corporal.

“I need it done by five today,” he said.

“Yes sir,” the woman said, saluting.

The general looked up at Lois.

“Hello, Lois. I’m all done here. Have you eaten?”

“Yeah, I had breakfast a little while ago.”

“Well, I could use a coffee. Come on.”

As she sat down with her father in his quarters, she looked at him.

“Daddy, why did you ...?”

“Lois, I know you’re upset with me about what happened with Lucy. And I had a long talk with Martha and Jonathan. They pointed out to me how harsh I was with you.” He raised his hand as if to stop her from interjecting. “They also told me they did not agree with how I have raised you girls and now that I have thought about it, I owe you an apology. They’re right. I haven’t raised you right. And I’ve been too critical over the situation. What Lucy did was not your fault and I had no right to blame you for it.”

“Daddy ...”

“Hear me out, honey. Because I need to say that in spite of the way I’ve raised you, you have become a remarkable young woman. While your record at Met U wasn’t exactly perfect, you have proved to me that you can knuckle down when you apply yourself. Martha tells me you’re a hard worker at that coffee shop. And I know Martha well enough to know she calls a spade a spade.”

He sipped his coffee.

“You remind me a lot of your mother,” he said. “You have that same energy, that same fire she had. Did I ever tell you how we met?”

Lois shook her head. “I know you were my age.”

“I was in basic training. Just a lowly private back then.”

Lois understood that. He’d always been a career man.

“Anyway, we had a day off from training and so I decided to go with a couple of friends of mine into town and we stopped at this little diner for something to eat. We’re sitting there acting like utter fools and your mom comes out to wait on us. And all I saw was this beautiful girl with long, black hair down to her waist. My friends were flirting up a storm with her and she was having none of it. So I said to her, ‘what’s a beautiful girl like you doing in a place like this?’ She looks me up and down and says ‘You really think a line like that is gonna work, soldier?’”

“She really said that?” Lois giggled.

Her father nodded. “Your mother never let me get away with anything. Every time we went into town we went to that diner. You see, your mom worked there part-time while she saved money for college. Her parents didn’t have a lot of money, rather like your boyfriend Clark. But they loved her a lot.”

Lois vaguely recalled that the last time she’d seen her maternal grandparents was about a year after her mother’s funeral. After that, her father had been transferred to Japan and she didn’t see them again. They had died not long after.

“How long were you and mom dating before you got married?”

“Well, we didn’t date at first. We were friends for a long time. About four years I suppose. It wasn’t until they decided to transfer me to a post overseas that she realised how she felt about me.”

“Wow, dad.”

“I see you and young Clark together and the two of you remind me of those days with your mom.” He sighed. “But Lo, I have to admit, I’m still not sure about you getting married in the summer.”

“Daddy, I know it worries you. But Clark and I love each other.”

It was almost time for school to let out when Lois returned to town. She parked her car in the staff parking area for the Talon and went into the coffee shop, ready to start work.

“How did it go with your dad, sweetie?” Martha asked.

“We had a long talk. It was nice, actually.”

Martha smiled. “That’s great honey. Uh, before you start work, Lex was asking for you.”

Lois frowned. Lex was sitting drinking a cappuccino. She hunched her shoulders and went over to him.
