Prompt 43!  
Title: A Special Day
Fandom: Smallville
Prompt: 43 "Flashback"
Pairing/Characters: Clark/Oliver
Rating: PG
Word Count: 791
Summary: future fic; Clark is getting mysterious presents and wonders what is going on.
Notes/Warnings: For my 50ficlets table/slash

There was something special about this day. The only problem for one Clark Kent was that he couldn’t figure out what that was. But he knew that it was important.

He had woken up that morning and someone had delivered breakfast for him. The tiny card that came along with it said nothing but “Happy Anniversary”. Happy Anniversary? For the life of him, he couldn’t remember the significance of this date. The deliveryman refused to tell him who had sent it but insisted it was for him.

The food was good though; whoever sent it knew him quite well because it had all his favorites.

What he didn’t predict was that the presents weren’t going to stop there. Shortly after he reached work, a huge box of chocolates arrived for him, accompanied by another card.

“Does Smallville have a secret admirer?” Lois teased but he could tell she was genuinely curious. He was too.

“I have no idea,” he admitted, explaining the morning surprise and the card. This one said, “My world changed the moment you walked into it and I never want it to go back to the way it was before.”

“Hmm,” Lois commented. “Well, did you meet someone special on this day? Use those reporter instincts! I think you can figure it out!”

She dropped the topic once he shared his chocolate but her words stayed in his mind. While he worked, he did a mental tally of his friends and when he met them. It was November, which eliminated Lois and Chloe because he met them in September and August, respectively.

As he went on crossing people off, he suddenly stopped at one name. Could it be? Glancing at the calendar, he realized it was entirely possible.

Before he could do his research, lunch arrived and he really shouldn’t have been as surprised as he was. Lois had a grand time making fun of him. She even made a phone call to Chloe and he could hear the two of them gossiping at his expense. One thing was for certain: he was going to get questions from his very curious best friend sometime soon.

He was even more determined to find out the truth but he didn’t have to wait long before his final clue came in.

The package that arrived contained a card and a necklace … normally, he would’ve been weirded out but the necklace was special. It felt like yesterday that a replica of this necklace had been placed in hands. And the writing on the card was all too familiar. It simply said “Remember” and Clark finally put the pieces together.

Excusing himself, he went to make a phone call. After finding a private place in the building, he pulled out his cell phone and dialed a number he knew all too well.

Someone answered on the second ring.

“Hey,” Clark greeted him. “Or should I say Happy Anniversary?”

There was a laugh on the other end. “Finally put the clues together, I see.”

“Yeah, well, I didn’t really expect you to remember the day we met,” Clark admitted. “But the necklace gave you away.” More than the necklace, Clark remembered who had given it to him and from that, he easily recalled walking into a penthouse exactly five years prior and shaking hands with a man who was now one of his closest friends.

Because five years ago on this date, he had met Oliver Queen.

“It’s an important date to me,” Ollie told him, sincerity evident in his tone.

“Thank you for everything you did for me today,” Clark said, still a bit in awe that he could mean so much to someone, to Oliver. His heart skipped a beat at the idea.

“You’re welcome,” Oliver replied. “I was actually hoping you could join me for dinner.”

“As … as friends?” Clark couldn’t help but question.

“As anything you want to be,” Oliver said quietly.

“What do you want?” Clark asked.

“I’m willing to take whatever you will give me,” Oliver said honestly.

“And if I want to give you more than just friendship?” Clark tested.

He heard Ollie swallow hard. “Then I suggest you dress nicely tonight because we’ll be celebrating more than one thing,” Oliver said finally.

“I guess I’ll be dressing up then,” Clark replied.

“Wonderful,” Oliver said but Clark could practically hear the smile in the blond’s voice. “I will pick you up at 6:30?”

“Works for me,” Clark agreed. They exchanged goodbyes and hung up. Clark was still smiling though.

In a few hours, he would see Oliver and if all went well, in the future, this day wouldn’t just be the one they met anymore but it’d mark their first date.

He could hardly wait.

This was exactly what I needed today. It was sweet and Clark is just so adorable you want to hug him. And Ollie sending him gifts on the day they met just makes me go aww. And it had Lois and Chloe gossiping! <3

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. After constantly depressing spoilers, I had to write something happy. And Clark is rather adorable, isn't he? I figure Ollie would be a romantic like that. Of course I throw in Chlo-Lo when I can. I love them! ;D

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Oliver is so sappy! It's amazing they never catch on sooner. Boys!

Isn't he? I figured when he'd be the romantic type!

It's amazing they never catch on sooner. Boys!
They're so stubborn! After all, they had to get past the constantly arguing stage that we're currently seeing before recognizing how much they actually do adore each other. LOL :D

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Aww, I'm glad you liked it! Spoilers depressed me so I decided to write happy, Collie fic to cheer myself up! ;D

Lois would totally gossip and I thought a little Chlo-Lo reference doesn't hurt anyway.

Aww, Clark shared his chocolate. :)
He totally would cuz he's a sweetheart like that. :D

Awwww!! ^__^ I love Clark finally putting all the pieces together, and their phone conversation, both seeming so hesitant, but excited.

Yay! I'm really glad you liked it! Sometimes, I think a bit of sap is nice.

Heh. I hadn't paid any attention to the pairing, and I kept thinking- Is she writing a Clex? Right up until he called Ollie I was thinking it was the aniversary of when he pulled him out of the river! Still, it was very cute, and I enjoyed it.

Well, it's my fic so even if there isn't a pairing, you can rule that out. I'm never going to write Clex.

Still, it was very cute, and I enjoyed it.
Glad to hear you liked it! I do enjoy writing sappy fic. Thanks for reading and commenting! :)

That was so sweet! I loved Oliver sending gifts to Clark and Clark realizing how important Oliver was to him. Great job!
svgurl: clark/oliver nuzzlingsvgurl on April 26th, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you liked it! I imagine that Ollie would be the type to send gifts and Clark is a bit shy but he knows his heart and if he wants something ,he'll go for it. ;)

Thanks for reading and commenting! :D

What can I say except great job as usual? You truly are one of the best writers whose work I've had the pleasure of reading. And yes, I know I've probably just made you blush again, but I'm not going to apologize for speaking the truth. :)

Aww, Ollie is so sweet. He's such a gorgeous guy too. You write these two so well the relationship is both hot and sweet. (sigh) I wish I could find a guy that romantic!
svgurl: clark gray shirt & ollie black jacketsvgurl on April 28th, 2009 02:12 am (UTC)
Isn't Ollie a sweetheart? I like to imagine him to be quite the romantic! I definitely wouldn't mind a guy like Ollie either! If only we knew where to look! :D
