Happy birthday to the lovely & talented ctbn60! Here's a little Clex story for you :)
"So..back in the barn. Just like old times."
"Just so you know, Clark, I only followed you here because I know you're plotting something. Don't pretend otherwise."
"It's less of a plot and more of a realization, Lex. Batman has added a library to Watchtower and I've been reading my way through the psychology section. It's been very enlightening..."
"For a long time, I just didn't see what was right under my nose. I thought you spent so much time with me because you wanted my secret, then I thought it was because you wanted Lana, then my secret again..."
"I should have realized, what you always wanted, was me. It was so obvious!"
"Okay, what kind of kryptonite are you on right now?"
"See, I KNEW you'd do that. It's called deflection and I've done a lot of it myself. You and I have been playing deflection like ping pong for years...Just admit it, Lex. You're attracted to me."
"I'll admit it. I'm attracted to you. I denied it for years - that's the other Big D: "Denial". But today in the shower, I said "I'm attracted to Lex!" and it felt good."
"This...this is a trick. Oliver's going to pop out from behind a hay bale and yell "Gotcha!" Excelsior all over again..."
"No. No trick, Lex. I just...I'm tired of the dance. And I'm tired of pushing my feelings down and pretending they don't exist. And I think you are too."
"Of course, this means establishing a few ground rules..."
Clark: "You're giving up crime. And all attempts at world domination. Both those things, in exchange for me."
Lex: "That's not a bad deal...."
Lex: "And for your part of the bargain...how about a little action up front? So I can ensure that this grand sacrifice is worth my while."
"That can be arranged..."
"Usually deals are sealed with a handshake. But I bet we can come up with something more interesting..."
SEVERAL HOURS OF BLISS AND ONE THOROUGHLY SATISFIED LEX LATER, THE "HAPPY EVER AFTER" DEAL WAS STRUCK!
