Summary: A short little ditty about what happens when Clark works late and Lois gets impatient.

Theme: In Love And Loving It


Lois and Clark had been married for 7 years and had *no* kids. They had finally given up, and had decided that they didn't want to adopt. They still loved each other deeply, but there *was* a void in their lives that a child could've possibly filled. One night, a Tuesday, Clark didn't leave work with Lois. He stayed behind to finish a story that had been taking forever to write, due to that fact that Superman had been needed *a lot* more than usual. He had told her he'd be home soon and it was three hours since then. He still wasn't done writing it, not to mention typing it. (He didn't use his super-speed 'cause the janitors had *just* arrived.)

Just then, he heard someone come up behind him and he turned around.

"What are you doing here?" he asked, once he'd seen who it was.

"Just came to see if you wanted some dinner. You hungry?" the person answered.

"Actually, I am … but not for food!!" he said, grabbing the person by the hand and dragging them into his lap.

"Uh, Clark!! Not here!!" the person protested.

"Oh, c'mon, why not?? It's been *five* days!! Do you realize that's a record for us, even after *7* years?" he mentioned … kissing the person on the lips. (YOU PROBABLY FIGURED OUT WHO IT IS — HUH??)

"Because of the janitors, Clark, and I *know* it's a record. That's *not* my fault, Flyboy, now, is it?" Lois asked, kissing him back.

"No fair, Lois. You know that I can't just *stop* being <whispering> Superman," he said.

"I know, but I don't always have to like it either, do I?" she asked.

"No, you don't always have to like it. I'm sorry. Can I have a kiss now?" he asked her as he leaned in for a kiss.

Sighing in content, they kissed for a few minutes, then she had to pull away so she could take a deep breath before kissing him some more! They kissed for a while, until they were both *impatient* for more. They then waited until the janitors had left. Then he dragged her into the conference room where he proceeded to … um..well … let's just say, they didn't wait any longer!!!!!!!!!!
