GEN Hana Kimi Happy


Lex stood at the balustrade on the patio, overlooking the tented back yard, shirt-buttons open at the collar and tie in his pocket. Flowers wilted and streamers sagged above empty tables and chairs. The cleaners swept stray programs, wedding favors, and lost items off the dance floor. The deejay packed his equipment and the bartender boxed half-empty bottles. The last of the guests had left, Clark had flown off to help the Justice League with some emergency, and PJ’s plane would be taxing down the runway, taking her and her husband on their honeymoon and embarking their new life together.

“Hey.”

Lex looked at his son, as Sam joined him on the patio. “I thought you’d gone home.”

“I figured I’d see if you needed help.” Sam leaned his forearms on the balustrade. His wedding tuxedo was still neat; his short red hair artfully gelled by PJ’s hairstylist. “I was thinking of going to the lab, anyway.”

“It’s late.”

“It’s not like someone’s waiting for me at home,” Sam said frankly.

Lex studied Sam. He didn’t see his elder child much anymore. Sam was thirty-two, an adult, and his own person. He didn’t share his private life with his parents.

Lex wasn’t sure how to ask if Sam was okay. Clark was the nurturing one. Lex helped with the work-type things and in protecting his children. What Lex did know he’d gleaned from PJ, and that was that Sam would spend twenty-four/seven in his lab if he didn’t have his sister bothering him all the time.

“Do you think I’ll ever have this?” Sam spoke quietly, looking out into the decorated backyard.

Lex heard two layers to Sam’s inquiry. He mimicked Sam’s pose and answered the deeper question. “If PJ can find someone to put up with her, anyone can.”

“I think she beat Mark until he gave in.”

“She’ll hogtie someone for you, if you’d want.”

“I’m not that desperate.” Sam pushed off the balustrade. “You sure you don’t need me?”

“No. Everything’s covered,” Lex said.

“Then, I’m taking off,” Sam said. “Tell Dad I said goodnight.”

“I will.” Lex turned to watch Sam walk towards the house. “Sam?”

Sam stopped and looked back.

“You tell me when, and I’ll make it happen,” Lex said, motioning to the wedding cleanup behind him.

Sam gave him a smile that was pure Clark. “What makes you think I’ll be the bride?”

  • Poor Sam. Love little drabbles.
  • “If PJ can find someone to put up with her, anyone can.”

    Hee...so true - she's amazing (I love PJ - she's a real chip off the Lex block, or so she seems to me).

    PS: In this universe, did Clark and Lex ever actually get married? I know that Lex tied everything up legally with the Domestic Partnership Agreement and Sam's adoption, back in the main story, but did they ever do the wedding thing afterward? And having met someone at last *G* will Sam be taking the big plunge?
    • No, Clark and Lex have never married. I figure gay marriage would be legal by the time Sam meets Drew, but didn't want to set a "date" for it with the universe with Clark and Lex.
  • So very nice and so very sweet. I've been missing the kids, you know? And did you actually killed the youngest? My God, my heart stopped when I read that. Bad, bad Henry. *shakes head*

    Can't wait for more, and I want to read more of the 'other stuff' too. *winks*
    • I've been missing the kids, you know? And did you actually killed the youngest? My God, my heart stopped when I read that
      Whoa, where's that?
      • God, I don't remember the part. The thing is, Clark had another child, a third one, Daniel, I think his name was. Something with a D, and he was still borned. That totally killed me.

        I think you'll have to check Henry's memories for that one, sorry. I don't even remember the name of the challege she wrote it for.
      • It's the Anticipation challenge in my memories section.
    • Yes, the youngest was stillborn. I'm so mean. They didn't have any other children, either.
  • Another great one. I love this. I love Sam, I want to fix him up with a nice guy and make him have all the love his dads have.
  • Once again my awww moment for the week is brought about by getting to see two of my favorite characters.

    Thanks sweetie for all the little glimpes into their lives. :)
  • I love how realistic this series is. Sam doesn't get his guy right away but instead it takes time. Not everyone can have their Great Romance before 25. Great job!
    • Thanks! I figured Sam would be very workaholic!nerd and get so wrapped up in his lab-stuff he'd forget he had a penis for long periods of time. Hard to find romance that way.

  • I just <3 this universe so much.
    *happy sigh*
    *loves on Sam*

    xoxo,
    Monica
  • Sam gave him a smile that was pure Clark. “What makes you think I’ll be the bride?”

    That's telling him, Sam!
  • Aww, that was so wonderful as always!
  • Awww. Poor Sam! *hugs him*
  • Sam gave him a smile that was pure Clark. “What makes you think I’ll be the bride?”

    Considering how little sex Sam has been having, he should be able to wear white, though. *grin*
  • sigh, i'd totally marry sam. too bad he's gay...and fictional...
