At a Charity Function (after Lionel’s
visit, before the lunch with Martha).
Either we deleted this scene for gratuitous sex, or we wrote
it for Gratuitous Sex!! Er, yeah. Another sex scene…
The crush of Metropolis’ privileged set, glittering golden
and exotically scented, overwhelmed Clark in a way the hedonistic
throng of Epitaph never had.
Slipping out of a circle of satin and Armani, he escaped to the
richly appointed men’s room only to find it occupied by a
somber, sharp-eyed attendant who looked him over critically. Not
what Clark needed right now. He pulled the door of the last stall
closed behind him and rested his forehead on the smooth dark wood.
Outside he could hear the soft din of the hundreds of people attending
Luthor Corp’s Annual Leukemia Society Charity Auction –
the lilting laughter of bejeweled women and the more resonant tones
of gentlemen discussing business.
Right. Like Lionel Luthor who’d driven Clark into this pseudo-hiding
with his hateful, hurtful barbs. And his son Lex, who’d stood
complacently by as Lionel made a point to introduce Clark to Sergei
and his St. Petersburg associates as Lex’s ‘bodyguard’,
as if they’d never met before. Clark thought he’d rather
be called a whore than laughed at for trying to retain a shred of
Lex. How could he have brought Clark here? How could he have thought
this would be a good idea?
The outer door was pushed open and Clark caught the call for everyone
to please take their places in the ballroom where dinner would be
served. No way. Clark was not going to break bread with Sergei.
He’d seen the seating chart and he and Lex were at the center
table with the Russians, just below the long dais where Lionel Luthor
would be presiding – looking down on them all from on high.
It made Clark sick.
The flick of crisp bills sounded in the room. “Why don’t
you take half an hour?” Lex’s low voice poured rich
and thick into his thoughts, dismissing the silent attendant.
“Clark? Let me in.” Lex said through the stall door.
Clark pushed it open to admit him to the spacious cubicle. Lex leaned
back against a side wall, hands in his pockets, pleased looking
half-smile on his face as he looked Clark up and down. “Why
are you hiding in here?”
“Why do you think?” Clark knew he sounded petulant
but he didn’t care.
“I think you’re upset about my father’s rudeness.”
“Yeah, that’s a start,” Clark laughed humorlessly.
“Sergei grabbing my ass was the real high point, though.”
Blue eyes hardened to ice. “He what?”
Clark raised his brows in a kind of triumph. “While your
dad was talking to you. Sergei said he still wants to fuck me. Offered
me ten grand to ‘entertain’ him and his partners later
Lex crossed his arms over his chest, eyes narrowing and distant.
“Sergei’s going to be dealt with Clark. That was a given
after his attack on me in the limo,” he said, his voice dropping
threateningly as he continued, “But touching you again…you
know I’d ruin him for that alone, don’t you?”
Clark shook his head in exasperation. He would never understand
the Luthors’ way of doing business. It was like espionage
or war or something. “I’m not going back out there,
Lex. You never should have brought me here.”
“You’re going to hide then? Let them win?”
Clark knew a challenge when he heard one, but he didn’t want
to rise to this one. It wasn’t so much what Lionel Luthor
or anyone else thought about him, but the fact that Lex knowingly
submitted him to this ridicule that hurt so much. He’d thought
Lex respected him more than that.
“Clark,” Lex said more softly, probably reading the
mulish expression Clark knew he wore.
“You out-class every one of them, regardless of our arrangement.
Don’t ever let someone like my father make you feel you’re
not as good as them, because you are.” Lex’s gaze shifted
away, but Clark could detect a quiet warmth in his persuasive voice.
“You’re a better person than anyone I’ve ever
Clark felt himself flush at the unexpected compliment. “But
why’d you bring me here, Lex?”
A wry smirk twisted Lex’s features as his eyes flicked over
Clark’s body, encased tonight in a custom-tailored Hugo Boss
suit that even Clark could admit he looked really good in. “I
wanted to dress you up and fuck you in the men’s room.”
The crudeness of Lex’s statement felt like a blow, forcing
the air from Clark’s lungs in a harsh gasp.
“It doesn’t reflect on you, Clark.” Lex pushed
off his wall, stepping across the short distance that separated
them, hands coming to rest on either side of Clark’s shoulders,
but sill not touching – pinning Clark to the wall with piercing
eyes alone. “It’s my kink. Something that sounded like
fun because you’d be so shocked by it.”
His voice was a low purr and Clark could feel his cock begin to
respond to the sultry words despite the protestations in his mind.
“So worried someone might catch us, or if they didn’t,
that they’d know what we’d done afterwards.” The
sweet musk of Lex’s cologne filled Clark’s senses when
he leaned closer to trace the line of Clark’s jaw with the
tip of his tongue. Low, rough voice in his ear sending a shudder
through Clark’s body when he continued, “Because you’re
going to make the hottest little noises, while trying so desperately
to be silent. And because you’re going to blush, remembering
what we’ve done every time I look at you the rest of the night,
and everyone will know what we’ve done, and envy me for it.”
“Lex…” Clark didn’t know how to finish.
Didn’t even know how Lex could manage to get him so hard at
the worst of all possible times and places.
Lex smirked through his command. “Drop your pants, Clark.”
He pulled back enough to allow Clark’s fumbling hands between
their bodies. “Okay, Lex, but… but we have to be quick,
alright?” He pleaded, heart trying to batter its way out of
his chest in fear and excitement.
Lex’s smile deepened to something positively sinful, smoky
eyes heavy lidded. “Well, that mainly depends on you, doesn’t
it?” Sharp hips bumped suggestively into Clark’s hands
and after he pushed his own pants and boxers down to his knees,
Clark went to work on the closures of Lex’s pants.
He freed Lex’s swollen member, stroking the smooth length
in his fist. Their sex scents rose in the warming space, mixing
with the subtle fragrance of Lex’s cologne; Clark breathed
in the heady scent, groaning deep in his throat.
Lex’s mouth opened, soft and wet under his and Clark dived
in, tongue thrusting to taste Lex, a hint of expensive brandy wafting
through his head on a warm vapor.
Hot hands slid under his jacket, finding and twisting his nipples
through the crisp fabric of his shirt. Clark gasped into Lex’s
mouth, throwing his head back against the stall’s wall with
an audible crack.
God, Lex’s hands…
A throaty chuckle poured over him as those hands slipped under
the hem of his shirt. One hand tugging slowly on Clark’s throbbing
cock while the other crept back up to play with his hardened nipples,
rolling them between deft fingers, teasing Clark out of his mind.
Lex nosed into the hollow beneath his ear, sucking hard on Clark’s
throat, pulling the flesh between his teeth. He’d be disappointed
to find he couldn’t mark Clark for everyone here to see, and
a secret part of Clark regretted it, too. He palmed Lex’s
scalp, thumbs mapping the bumps and tracing the fluttering veins
through soft, delicate skin.
“Lex, please…” he moaned, eyes squeezed and head
rolling on his shoulders.
Lex pulled back with a final lick to the sensitized spot. “Turn
around, Clark. Take your jacket off. Put your hands on the wall.”
Strong hands stroked the curve of his long hips, urging him around.
Lex’s jacket joined his on the back of the door, and Clark
caught a maddening glimpse of creamy skin as Lex lifted the hem
of his shirt to slick his cock. “God, Lex, you really had
this planned, didn’t you?”
A slow smirk answered him. “Turn around, Clark,” Lex
repeated, and Clark complied, bracing his spread hands against the
cool tiles, jumping at the feel of wet fingers slipping into the
cleft of his ass.
Lex fingered his hole briefly before slipping deep inside him,
twisting and stretching. He could hear the wet sound of Lex stroking
his own cock over Clark’s panting – his mouth slack
against the cool wood. “Hurry, Lex.”
The fingers retreated, leaving an empty ache, both hands landing
hard on Clark’s hips, heels pressing into his ass cheeks,
opening him for the blunt cock head that pushed flush against him.
His body resisted the intrusion for an instant before Lex slipped
inside – thick, full press of flesh stretching him. Flash
fires burned a path across every nerve ending in his body.
Lex was pushing in too slowly, torturously, and Clark reached back
with one hand, grabbed Lex’s hip and pulled him hard until
he was filled, spitted on Lex’s cock.
Lex moaned, “Jesus, Clark… so fucking tight.”
“Do it hard, Lex. Gotta hurry,” Clark panted, acutely
aware of the temporary absence of the attendant and their empty
places at the center table. “Fast. Fuck me fast.”
“Oh, yeah.” Lex pulled them back until he could bend
Clark over at the waist and began to fuck him with long, hard strokes.
“You fucking love it, don’t you Clark? Love my cock
in your ass.”
“Unngh,” was all Clark could manage as he nodded. He
did. He really fucking did love it.
The room was filled with the sound of skin slapping on skin, the
obscene wet noises of Lex pushing and pulling, pounding into him,
and the sharp grunts every thrust forced out of Clark.
Lex’s soft moans filled the spaces between his own gasping
breaths, and he muttered obscenities that had Clark reaching for
his cock. “Tight fucking ass…Hot…and tight…and
mine…. You’re a fucking slut for me…Aren’t
“God, Lex, please…” Clark watched his fist pumping
his own cock, free hand supporting his weight, braced on one knee.
Lex was scraping across his prostate with every long stroke in his
ass, and pre-come slicked Clark’s hand.
“Say it, Clark…Say you love my cock in your ass,”
Lex demanded, voice hoarse with the effort he was expending behind
Clark’s doubled body.
“I do, Lex, God, I love it when you… when you fuck
me,” Clark moaned, giving his cock a vicious twist that sent
him off, milky spurts of come coating his hand and wetting the front
of his shirt as he convulsed around Lex’s cock.
Lex held still deep inside him until his aftershocks subsided,
then starting pounding into him again, silent and brutal –
six, seven, eight strokes. He came with Clark’s name on his
lips, breath harsh and labored as he spilled into moist channel.
Knees shaking, Lex pulled Clark upright and let the wall behind
him support them both. His hands wrapped around Clark, caressing
the sweat-slick chest, heaving in time with Lex’s, their hearts
Several minutes later, Clark looked down at the mess he’d
made of his dress shirt, pants in a wad around his ankles, and laughed,
still endorphin-high. “We’re going home now, right?”
The low chuckle was answer enough. Lex slipped out of Clark and
used his handkerchief to clean himself off. “I’m afraid
not, Clark. But don’t worry. You’re supporting a worthy
Clark didn’t ask if he was speaking of the charity or Lex’s
sex drive. He didn’t need to. “Lex, have you ever heard
the expression ‘payback is a bitch’?”
Steel grey eyes laughed at him as Lex slid his jacket on, and how
was it possible he didn’t look even slightly rumpled? “Get
dressed, Clark. I’ll meet you at the table.” He stepped
into Clark’s space again and took his mouth in a final, thorough
kiss, tongue hot and probing. Clark felt his traitorous body responding
again, and groaned a protest. Lex smiled wickedly. “You can
tell me how you plan to punish me over five hundred dollar plates
of dried-out chicken and overcooked asparagus.”
Clark pulled out his own handkerchief as Lex exited the stall,
wondering how on earth he was going to hide the evidence of his
orgasm. The sound of running water filled the room.
“I’ve got to get out there. Wouldn’t do for me
to show up late to my father’s welcome speech. Get cleaned
up and follow me.” A hot, wet towel was handed over the door.
Clark glanced down at the mess on his shirt tails, irritation flaring
for a moment, but he could hardly be mad – not when he’d
enjoyed their adventure as much as Lex had. He shook his head and
accepted the towel. “Yeah, Lex. I’ll be out in a minute.”
“Good. You know the other reason I brought you? Because these
things are a bore. I want your company out there. Don’t make
“I won’t,” Clark grinned. Lex was such an autocrat,
and how on earth he managed to make Clark want to follow his orders,
Clark had no idea.
Clark was just finishing up his reparations when he heard the bathroom
door open again. He hoped it wouldn’t be the dour faced attendant
returned, but revised his list of evils when Sergei’s voice
reached him through the still closed stall door. He was talking
to one of his St. Petersburg associates in Russian.
Cursing his luck, Clark held still behind the closed stall door.
He hoped they wouldn’t keep him too much longer. Maybe even
more than Lex, Clark didn’t want to walk into the ballroom
in the middle of Lionel’s speech.
He leaned back against the wall, closed his eyes and let the foreign
words fill his ears. Russian wasn’t what he’d call a
beautiful language, but it was interesting. The unusual cadence
was familiar, too, since he’d heard Lex and Sergei speak a
couple minutes of it in the limo. His understanding of the words
was just another gift courtesy of the AI in his ship – and
now the words flowed so easily in his mind that he almost didn’t
recognize the sharp, guttural difference of the speech.
“The Luthors raise the bar for the term ‘ugly Americans’.
Have you ever seen anything as ridiculous as Lionel’s hair?”
That was Sergei speaking, and Clark recognized the vitriol in his
voice. Lex said he’d be ‘dealt with’, whatever
that meant. Clearly Lex was a better judge of character than Lionel.
“The son is the worst – bringing his whore to an event
And that was one of the partners, washing his hands at the sink.
Clark hadn’t cared enough to get their names.
“Yes, Lex – Lex is a problem. But the good news is,
he is dispensable.”
“You aren’t sanctioned for that kind of action.”
The man’s voice was cold. “This isn’t Russia,
“Nicholas, please. I wouldn’t act without the partner’s
knowledge and approval. You should give it some thought, though.
Lex Luthor sees things his father does not. He could be dangerous
to our plans.”
Murder. They were talking about murdering Lex, Clark knew it! Fear
and panic constricted his chest, and rage colored his vision blood
red. He heard one of the men leave the room and x-rayed through
the door to see who remained.
Sergei, zipping up his fly and moving from the urinal to wash his
Clark stepped out of the stall behind the man and met his eyes
in the mirror over the sink.
“Well, if it isn’t Alexander’s little prostitute.
Are you servicing men in the toilets now? He doesn’t pay you
Super-speed enabled Clark to wipe the smirk of the bastard’s
face that much faster, as he lifted Sergei by the throat, over his
head and against the wall. Clark held him pinned there for a long
moment, watching the crude mouth open and close in a useless quest
for air, face turning scarlet red, eyes bulging.
Just before he would have passed out, Clark released his hold,
and Sergei fell hard to the floor in a boneless heap. Clark resisted
the urge to kick him in the ribs while he coughed up a lung at Clark’s
“Listen to me, Sergei,” he said, smirking at the look
of dawning horror on the man’s face when Clark addressed him
in Russian. “If you hurt Lex in any way, I’ll make you
sorry you did. Don’t you so much as look at him, do you understand
Sergei had a hand at his bruised throat, and opened his mouth but
nothing more than a squeak sounded. He nodded his understanding,
eyes dropping to the floor.
Clark stood over him for a long minute more, a feeling of foreboding
like a black cloud in his thoughts. The man couldn’t be trusted
to keep his word, but what could Clark do, short of warning Lex?
Shit, he was going to be pissed if Clark didn’t get out there
fast. He gave the recovering man one more warning glare and opened
the bathroom door onto the sound of Lionel Luthor welcoming his
Martha & Clark discuss Lex (just before Clark gets
the letter from Cadmus Labs).
This scene was deleted because it’s basically redundant, and
because it’s a vast change in Martha’s characterization
in this fic.
“Honey, why don’t you call Pete?”
Clark drained his glass of milk and stood to get a refill. “He’s
in Edge City touring the campus. Won’t be back until Monday.”
“Well Chloe then. You guys could catch that new Keanu Reeves
Clark snorted his freshly-pouring milk, wiping his face on his
sleeve. “Sorry. And um, no, she and Lana are visiting Nell
in the city – some annual school clothes shopping ritual or
“Mom, stop. I’m fine. I don’t need to be busy
all the time you know.”
His mom looked down at the box of cling wrap in her hands, shaking
her head. “I know you don’t, Clark. It’s just…”
Her voice trailed off as she turned her back to wrap the plate of
“I know, mom. You’re worried about me. I should be
out having fun instead of moping around here.”
His mom turned back to him, a weak smile on her face. “I
“That I’m moping? I know.” Clark pushed in the
chair he’d been sitting in and snatched a cookie off the tray
before his mom folded the wrap over the edges. “But I’m
allowed to mope a little, right?”
“Of course you are. But, Clark…” She gave him
an uncertain look, like she was dipping her toe in and waiting for
the temperature to register. Clark raised his eyebrows and smiled,
telling her the water’s fine, come on in. “Did he…
“Mom, it’s over. It doesn’t matter what I did
and didn’t… it’s over. He’s a Luthor and
I have secrets that could be valuable to him. Case closed.”
“No, case not closed, Clark.” His mom leaned back against
the counter and crossed her arms on her chest. “You can’t
just turn off your feelings. Why do you think I didn’t ask
you to stop seeing him when I found out you were… well, together?”
“Mom, can we just drop it?”
“I knew then that he’d eventually find out about you,
Clark. It’s going to happen – it’s maybe not that
simple-” Clark shot her an incredulous glance. ”- okay,
definitely not that simple, but it’s going to happen. Over
time, people are going to find out about you. You just have to pick
which ones do and which ones don’t.”
Clark scoffed and shook his head. “And you think Lex Luthor
is a good candidate for alien secret-keeper? Mom, he’d sell
His mom’s face fell, then tightened with a sternness that
Clark normally didn’t question. “He would never sell
He was tired of this, tired of being convinced that Lex hadn’t
really meant to fucking break his heart. “How do you know?
You spent one hour with him and he completely disregarded every
agreement we had about what… um…”
“What you were going to tell me? Yes, I guessed that from
your reaction afterwards. But he was honest, Clark. He didn’t
lie to me – didn’t even try. And that couldn’t
have been easy for him, given the circomestances.”
Clark gripped the back of the chair he was standing behind, careful
not to break the wooden rung of its back. “So he was honest
once in his life. He could have been thinking about business –
about what he needed to say to pacify you until he-”
His mom pushed off the counter, hands landing squarely on her hips.
“Pacify me?! Clark Kent! Did I need pacifying?”
He smiled just a little. It was ridiculous. His mother, defending
the man that a month before, she’d thought was paying him
for sex, even after she’d found out it was basically true.
“Mom, you know what I meant.”
“He wasn’t trying to pacify me, Clark. He was letting
And that was it, right there. He’d thought the same thing.
Lex was so closed off, so rigid and defensive that every tiny insight
into his soul was like a gift. He’d hung on every one of them,
and apparently, so had his mother. But just because Lex had given
him something, it obviously hadn’t meant that he intended
to give him everything.
Clark slumped into the chair, eyes lowered to a pale stain on the
tablecloth. “He doesn’t know how to let people in.”
“Yes he does, sweetie.” His mom’s fingers guided
a stray lock of his hair behind his ear, before slipping under his
chin, lifting it so their eyes met. “He just doesn’t
know how to let people stay.”
Clark stared at her understanding expression until tears made him
blink, then he stood, shoving the chair back noisily as he moved
to get his coat from the hook by the door.
“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, mom. Lex Luthor
will marry his…” he wanted to say whore, and how ironic
was that? ”... Victoria and forget all about me. It’s
for the best, trust me.”
Clark pushed the door open on squeaky hinges, then thudded down
the stairs. He could be at the Talon in under a minute, and Lana
would be there with a cup of legally addictive stimulant and those
big, beautiful eyes. That gentle voice would sooth him with trivial
concerns, cares that normal people had.
He could find comfort in the fact that she still didn’t know
about him, even after all these years. And if she still suspected
something, she never openly questioned him. She’d exchanged
the desire to really know him with the desire to have his constancy
in her life a long time ago. Their friendship was easy, simple.
Lex loves Clark (sometime after their
last night as employer and employee).
This scene was deleted for its GRA-TU-I-TOUS
Piercing green eyes and the full stretch in his ass were the infinite
scope of Lex’s universe. He knew his eyes were closed, but
he could still see Clark’s, flecked with golden light, boring
into his soul. His back arched sharply with every slow thrust of
slim hips, the bed beneath him melting away to nothingness. Like
floating on clouds, safe in Clark’s strong arms, anchored
on his cock.
Silky tendrils of hair brushed his nose, and he breathed in the
clean scent, his fingers sliding into the warm haven to pull the
boy in for a kiss. Clark wanted control, and Lex gave it more eagerly
than he ever had, delirious with the sheer perfection of the moment.
Clark’s insistent tongue, lapping at the roof of his mouth,
slipping wet against his own, lush mouth sucking at his lips and
tongue, devouring him.
Lex moaned under the sweet agony of Clark’s onslaught, his
ass burning from the unaccustomed use. How long Clark had been riding
him, he couldn’t remember; it seemed like forever, and he
prayed for it to be true. And if there was a God in heaven He would
surely grant him this wish, after letting Lex soar so close with
one of His very own angels.
Lex smiled at the fanciful thought under Clark’s hot, hungry
mouth, the skilled tongue exploring his small scar with admirable
attention to detail, sharp teeth nipping at his lips between soothing
Clark pulled back, arms braced on their ethereal bedding, and Lex
opened his eyes, breath catching at the unearthly beauty above him.
Clark’s eyes were squeezed tight, lean, muscle-corded body
straining as he began to thrust faster into Lex, sinful lips parted
Lex lifted his legs higher, tighter around the boy’s ribs,
taking him deeper into his body. His hands stroked down Clark’s
back, smoothing over the play of powerful muscles, the burn in his
ass radiating outward, the sun breaking free to warm him body and
“Clark, I love you,” he moaned, orgasm washing over
him unexpectedly, his untouched cock spurting warm come across both
Blood pounded thick in his ears, a physical reminder of their earthbound
state, and Lex stretched against the firm mattress under his back.
Something was wrong. Clark was still and hard inside him.
“Clark?” he opened his eyes to see a look of purest
agony on the beloved face.
“You can’t love me, Lex,” he said, tears tracing
down his face, falling like acid onto Lex’s skin. “I’m
Lex shook his head, not understanding, heart breaking at the raw
open wound Clark had become at his words of love.
“None of this is real, Lex,” Clark continued, looking
towards the bedroom window. “Just ask your dad if you don’t
Lex turned his head to the penthouse’s huge window, knowing
the cityscape below like the back of his own hand, and screamed
at the sight of Lionel hovering outside, eighty stories above the
ground watching them with an amused grin on his face, raising a
snifter of brandy in toast.
He bolted upright in bed, heart hammering so forcefully in his
chest he thought he might die of his terror. He was covered in slick
sweat and sticky come, the nightmare still present in the room, fluttering
about him on phantom wings.
“Lex?” a sleepy voice called to him, cool hand running
down his back. “Are you alright, love?”
He got out of bed without looking at its source. “I’m
fine, Victoria. Go back to sleep,” he said as he made his
way to the bathroom and a hot shower.
A dream analyst wasn’t required to tell Lex he was completely
fucked. Smirking at his own mental pun, he stepped into the hot
spray. Clark was making nightly appearances in his dreams, and Lex’s
declarations of love were just as regularly scheduled.
He couldn’t mean them, of course. Dream-Clark was right.
He wasn’t real; none of it was. Lex scrubbed a washcloth hard
over his sensitive skin, washing away as much of the dream as he
could. The declarations, like tonight’s Lionel apparition,
were reminders about how vulnerable he’d let himself become
during Clark’s month here.
Warnings, one might say.
He’d have to be more careful when Victoria was gone and Clark
was back in his bed.
Soaping his stomach, he smiled at the come that dissolved and slid
down the drain. Lex Luthor, having wet dreams at his age. His father
would be laughing if he knew.
