Summary: Clark & Ollie and Lois & Tess go on a double date.
A/N: For my 50ficlets table, prompt: "eating out"

“Do we really have to go?”

Clark Kent looked at the pouting face of his boyfriend and rolled his eyes. “Yes, now stop being a baby … it’ll be fun.”

Oliver scowled at him. “Easy for you to say … we’re not having dinner with two of your ex-girlfriends, who are now dating each other.”

“That’s why it’ll be fun … for me,” Clark joked. Ollie didn’t seem to find it as amusing though. “Oh, come on, Oliver,” he added, “You don’t have feelings for either one of them anymore, do you?”

“Of course not,” Oliver answered immediately.

“Do you have any problems with them being together?” Clark persisted.

“No,” Ollie replied.

“Then, what’s wrong?” Clark quizzed. “Lois and you are friends. Tess doesn’t hate you that much anymore. Everything will be fine.”

“If you say so,” Oliver responded, not looking the last bit convinced.

Pursing his lips, Clark closed the distance between them and placed a gentle kiss on Oliver’s lips. “I promise,” he told him, “If it’s too weird, I will make it up to you later.”

At this, Ollie grinned. “Yeah?” He grinned cheekily. “You know, I think that I deserve a reward anyway, just for going to this.”

“Mmm,” Clark murmured, “That you do.” Just as their lips were about to meet, Clark pulled away. “After dinner. Now go get ready.”

“Tease,” Oliver muttered and Clark just laughed.

“Get dressed,” Clark commanded. Smiling, he continued, “Besides, the sooner we go, the sooner we can come back and I can … reward you.”

Oliver stopped complaining after that.

Little did Clark know that there was a similar argument going on in Lois’s apartment.

“Remind me why you agreed to this again?” Tess drawled.

“Because it’ll be fun,” Lois responded, fixing her make-up.

“I’d love to know your definition of fun,” her girlfriend remarked. “I can think of several better ways to spend our time than having dinner with a man we both dated and his new boyfriend.”

“Oh, come on,” Lois laughed, “You don’t hate Ollie as much as you pretend to and you like Clark, don’t you?”

“Clark makes it difficult for people not to like him,” Tess pointed out. “I honestly don’t know what he sees in Oliver.”

“Probably the same thing that we did,” Lois retorted. “Besides, Ollie’s changed … and trust me, he worships Clark. If he didn’t, I would definitely have something to say about that.”

“Oliver Queen, a whipped man,” Tess said, chuckling, “Now that is something I would pay to see.”

“You’ll probably see it in this evening if you stop complaining,” Lois told her.

“Sometimes, I think Oliver’s not the only whipped one,” Tess sighed, “What have you done to me, Lois Lane?”

“Nothing less than what you’ve done to me,” Lois responded, meeting Tess’s lips in a kiss, effectively ending the conversation.

They were forced to separate though, when they realized the time. Lois and Tess were meeting Clark and Oliver at the restaurant, but considering that it was Saturday night, they knew they might hit some traffic so they wanted to leave early.

At exactly 6:30, they were at the restaurant, a French place that was exclusive and discreet enough so that all four of them being there wouldn’t make tomorrow’s headlines. They gave their name to the hostess and were led to a booth, where they found Ollie and Clark already waiting.

Both men stood up and they all greeted one another.

“You ladies look beautiful,” Clark said, surprisingly the most comfortable out of all of them.

“Thanks,” Lois answered for them both. “The two of you don’t look so bad either. Were you waiting long?”

“Nah,” Oliver assured them, as they sat down, “We just got here.”

Lois and Tess were handed menus and after a few minutes, settled on a wine. After they had ordered that and an appetizer, the four of them found they didn’t know quite what to say.

Their wine arrived and the waiter left, once he realized they hadn’t decided on the main course yet.

“Maybe we should figure out what to order?” Tess suggested. The other three seemed relieved at the suggestion, quickly hiding behind their menus.

After a moment, Clark put his down. “Okay, I’m going to have to defer ordering to someone else,” he said, with an apologetic smile. “I took Spanish in high school … I don’t understand a word of this menu.”

At that, Lois grinned. “I vaguely understand this, but it’s been a while for me too. You guys know what’s good here?”

“I’ve been here once before,” Ollie admitted, “I think whatever I had then was pretty good.”

“No escargot,” Clark said quickly and the rest of them couldn’t contain the laughter at the expression on his face. “What? I don’t care how much of a delicacy it is … snails are not food,” Clark finished.

“Well then,” Lois said, raising her glass. “Here’s to not eating snails.”

“I can toast to that,” Oliver agreed, smirking, as they all clicked glasses. Suddenly, it was like the previous tension was gone and after that, they fell into easy conversation. All four of them were thinking the same thing though.

Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Awww!! I so love them being so awkward about the whole thing. Silly people. :p
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 01:36 am (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it! I've always wanted to do this type of fic with the four of them and I am very happy to hear it worked for you too. I could just see them acting like this in my head. And yes, they are very silly. ;)

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :D

Talk about awkward! But I'm glad they all settled down - nothing like a distrust of escargot to unite people!
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 02:30 am (UTC)
I think it SO would be. But funny for people who are not directly involved. ;)

nothing like a distrust of escargot to unite people!
LOL SO true. In my French class, they made escargot and I wouldn't go near it. :\

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! :)

Hee, I think the dislike of escargot is a mutual thing. I love the awkwardness to start with, and the way Oliver whines, hee, I can just see it. Great story. Femmeslash isn't usually my thing, but you made it readable.
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)
Yes, escargot is gross and as far as I'm concerned, they all dislike it. ;)

I'm glad you liked it! I could just picture Ollie not wanting to go and Clark teasing him but making him go anyway. It makes me happy to know that it worked for you too! :D

Femmeslash isn't usually my thing, but you made it readable.
Well, I appreciate you making an exception! I don't have a lot of femmeslash ships myself, but Lois/Tess is one of them and I thought them with Collie would make for a funny situation.

Thanks for taking the time to read and review! :D

Of course it was Clark and Lois idea to go on a double date. Sulking Oliver is for the win, cause we all know that Clark has him wrappped around his little finger. I love the idea of these two couples on a double date.
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 05:23 am (UTC)
Of course it had to be them! And you know it was Lois who suggested it in the first place. It's canon that she'd be all enthusiastic about those type of things. ;)

Sulking Oliver is for the win, cause we all know that Clark has him wrappped around his little finger.
Oh, yes, he definitely does. One pout and Ollie's a goner! LOL :D

And I've been wanting to do a fic with the four of them on a double date but never got around to it. When I saw the prompt, I decided to go for it. :D

I'm glad you enjoyed it though! Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment!

svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 07:40 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it! :)

I don't read femslash a lot, but this was so good ^^
I appreciate you making an exception in my case then! I don't have a lot of f/f ships but Lois/Tess is definitely one of them. :)

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :D

Heh, you lured me in with Lois/Tess! :)

Though I love the boys, too!

And this dinner went just about as expected, heh heh. ;)
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 23rd, 2010 07:41 pm (UTC)
Heh, you lured me in with Lois/Tess! :)
Success! There really needs to be more Lois/Tess out there. *nods*

Though I love the boys, too!
They are rather adorable, aren't they? ;)

And this dinner went just about as expected, heh heh. ;)
Yup, I could just picture it in my head. I've wanted to do something like it for a while so when I saw the prompt, I just went for it. Glad to hear it worked for you.

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :)

Baha, poor Oliver. No fair to make him double with two of his exs. :P Very cute!

I'm vegetarian so I don't eat them anymore, but snails are actually really nice. They don't taste at all like you'd think they'd taste, LOL!
svgurl: clark/oliver 'escape'svgurl on May 26th, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
I know, right? I'm so mean to him! But don't worry, Clark made it worth his time later.;)

I'm glad you liked it though!

I'm vegetarian too actually! And are they? IDK ... live snails just gross me out ... I can't imagine eating one, even if it is cooked. We saw how it's made in my French class on year in high school and even then, I was like "no thanks". LOL :D

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
