My accidental happily (ever after)
the way you smile and how you comfort me (with your laughter)
I must admit you were not a part of my book
but now if you open it up and take a look
you're the beginning and the end of every chapter
Lois looked down at the last box in front of her. She swallowed hard as she glanced up, eyes taking in the apartment, almost everything unpacked. She let out a small breath swallowing hard. Three weeks…it had been three weeks since Clark and Oliver made their way into the Phantom Zone.
She glanced back at the box and sighed. She had promised herself she wouldn’t open the last one until Clark was safe at home. She lifted it off the small table and turned walking it back into the bedroom. After shoving it back into the closet, she stood, one of Clark’s flannel shirts falling to her mid thigh as she took in their bedroom.
When she first started unpacking everything she hadn’t meant for his things to take over the room. Sure there was a mixture of both of them there, but there were definitely more of his things then hers. She was pretty sure it was because seeing his things, having them surrounding her made her feel better with his absence.
The thought made her smile slightly. Who would have thought back in the day that Smallville would be the man she couldn’t stand to see herself live without. When they had first met, she was pretty sure there was a mutual dislike on both sides.
But over the years that mutual dislike turned into friendship, attraction and finally into love. Or maybe…it had always been there, lurking beneath the surface. No one else had ever been able to get under her skin like Clark could…maybe that was fate’s way of letting her know it was supposed to be him all along.
Lois never was one to take subtle hints though. Clark was never a part of her original plan…never really a part of the story she planned for herself, and yet now she couldn’t picture an ending without him. It sounded cheesy and she’d never say it out loud, but Clark brightened her day.
His smile warmed her heart…the way he always did what he thought was best for everyone and the way he was always looking out for her even though it sometimes pissed her off. Lois didn’t know how she ever thought she and Clark wouldn’t work. It was beyond clear now more than ever that she needed him there in her life. Her eyes watered slightly as she closed her eyes to fight off the tears.
He had to come home…she couldn’t do this without him. The world needed him…she needed him. Lois took a deep breath, opened her eyes slowly and glanced sideways towards the Clock. It was getting late. She needed to pack her bag so she could relieve Tess at Watchtower.
She walked towards the small chair in the bedroom and lifted the black bag off of it bringing it out into the living room, her pillow peeking out of the open zipper slightly. It didn’t matter how long she had to wait…she’d do it willingly because she knew Clark would find his way back to her. Their wedding was in two days and though a part of her was terrified he wouldn’t be back in time, a larger part of her knew that he was okay…she could feel it.
She had faith in him and Oliver. They’d figure it out. Clark would be back, they’d have their wedding and everything would be okay. They’d face whatever else came at them together, for the rest of their lives. Because this life…her relationship with Clark…everything…it was her accidental happily ever after and she’d be damned if she was giving it up without a fight.
