Summary: Oliver has his own way of apologizing.
Notes/Warnings: For my 50ficlets table/none

Clark sighed as he entered the farm after a long day at the Planet. He had never felt so alone. Chloe was gone, Ollie had betrayed him and while he did have Lois, she didn’t know everything about him so he couldn’t really confide in her.

Why, Ollie? Turning his back on Oliver and declaring that they were no longer on the same side hurt Clark more than he wanted to admit. He had hated lying to Ollie about the Black Kryptonite but he hadn’t had a choice.

To find out that Ollie had a Kryptonite ring and he had killed Lex broke his heart. He had trusted him, relied on him and honestly thought Oliver was better than that. Now he didn’t know what to think.

But a part of him feared that this loneliness wouldn’t be temporary, and his old worries about always being alone came rushing back at full force.

Stepping into the kitchen, he came to a halt when he saw three boxes sitting on the counter. He made his way to them and found an envelope sitting on top of them. His name was written on it, in all too familiar handwriting. Oliver.

Even though he was unsure of whether to open it or not, his curiosity got the best of him. So he did and he began to read.


Let me start out by that you were right, about everything. I have been doing some thinking and I don’t want to be your enemy. I hate myself for pushing you to the point where you believe that I could ever be that.

At this, Clark stopped reading, unable to believe his eyes. Was Oliver apologizing? Intrigued, he continued.

I know you saw the three boxes below this letter. Yes, they are for you. The first one, though, I wouldn’t recommend opening. There’s a reason it’s in a lead box. In it is the ring … I want you to know that I never would’ve hurt you with it. I just saw that Lex had it and wanted to keep it so it wouldn’t fall into worse hands. But it should be with you; that’s where it’s safest.

Clark eyed the top box and smiled. Maybe he should’ve let Ollie explain but he had just been so horrified that he lashed out. But what were the other two boxes for?

He figured the letter held the answers and when he kept reading, he found he was right.

You’re probably wondering about the second box. All I can say is that the second box is something you thought was destroyed but it’s not. It’s safe to open.

Immediately, Clark did just that and was stunned to see the Phantom Zone crystal that Tess claimed to have destroyed in there.

I had come over to the farm when Tess was there to try to talk to you and I overheard what she did. I wasn’t invading your privacy, I promise. I had a feeling that Tess wouldn’t destroy it and found that I was right. Don’t worry; I put a duplicate crystal in its place so she won’t figure it out for a while. Good luck with your plan. I believe in you.

At that, Clark's grin widened. He was feeling better by the second.

You can say the third box is a gift. I am not trying to bribe my way back into your good graces but I hope you will like it.

I don’t expect you to forgive me yet but I really would like to talk. Really talk, not argue.

I hope to hear from you soon but I'll understand if I don't.


He felt as if a weight had been lifted from his shoulders and suddenly didn’t feel so alone. Though he wasn’t going to just let everything go, especially the fact that Ollie had committed murder, he appreciated that Oliver had taken the first step.

Remember the last paragraph of Oliver’s letter, Clark opened the third box and started laughing when he saw a bright red cape. Poor Oliver; he didn’t know that someone else had already beat him to the punch on this one.

But when he pulled it out, he got the shock of his life. In the middle of the cape was the House of El symbol. How did …? Then again, it was Oliver. He should know by know not to question the blond’s methods. Every time he thought he had him figured out, Ollie did something to surprise him.

When Rachel had given him a cape, he had left in out on the fence but this one felt special and he doubted he could discard it that easily. He held it close and smiled. Though the chances he would wear it were slim, it was definitely nice.

Clark knew what he should do. Picking up the phone, he dialed a number he knew too well.

A voice answered on the second ring. “Queen here.”

“Hi, Ollie, it’s Clark,” he said. “I think we should talk.”

They weren’t fixed yet but at least now, they could try and get there.

Awwww!! ^__^ I so love Ollie for trying to make amends there. We can only hope he'll make a similar effort in the season finale.

And of course, the cape was too adorable! ^_~

The show was just frustrating me so much with the way they were handling Ollie's character that I decided to fix him myself. ;D I would love it if Ollie redeemed himself like this but I don't have much hopes.

And of course, the cape was too adorable! ^_~
Ollie was so enthusiastic with the cape in 'Identity' and I couldn't resist! ;D

I'm glad you enjoyed this! thanks for reading and commenting! :)

That was awesome! I'd love to see something like that happen (assuming I squint a bit and ignore some of the pesky details). Isn't it horrible how much they've damaged poor Ollie's character? Almost worst for me is the fear they'll just ignore it all and give him a reboot next season, or kill him off before he gets a chance to truly apologize.

I'm so glad you liked it!

Yeah, you and me both. I know the crystal is definitely gone for good but I like to dream otherwise. It worked for my fic so I did it.

My heart would break if Ollie left/dies without him and Clark being on good terms. It'd just feel ... incomplete. :( I wouldn't be surprised if they reboot but I'd be super pissed.

Thanks for reading and commenting! :D

Oh, I'm so glad you fixed Ollie. I just saw Requiem (we're way behind in NZ) and I so hate what they've done to Ollie. Hopefully you're planning a sequel? (hint, hint) :)
svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 14th, 2009 01:41 am (UTC)
I am glad to hear you enjoyed it and that my Ollie worked for you. And 'Requiem' ... ugh ... *shudders* That episode nearly reduced me to tears. I figured since the show will continue screwing up Ollie, I'd fix him. ;D

I don't know about a sequel but I'll consider it. :D

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Awwwwwwww Olliver given Clark the cape was sooo adorable and sweet
svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 14th, 2009 01:47 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm glad you liked this and the cape part worked for you. I thought it'd be a nice touch, since Ollie has been such an influence on his life and he was all obsessed with the cape. ;D

Thanks for reading and commenting!

svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 14th, 2009 01:48 am (UTC)
Woohoo! Well, nothing wrong with claiming it. ;D And I guess it was done unintentionally but I'm glad to hear you liked it and it worked anyway! :D

Thanks for reading and commenting!

I love you! *hugs* I so needed this after last week's episode. It was wonderful and I like Ollie trying to make amends here. I have no hopes of him doing something like this in the season finale (none at all), but at least I've got you to give me nice happy things. *hugs again* Thanks so much for brightening up my day some more.
svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 14th, 2009 01:49 am (UTC)
Aww, I love you too. *hugs back* I'm so glad that you enjoyed this and I could fix last week's disaster for you.

I have no hopes of him doing something like this in the season finale (none at all), but at least I've got you to give me nice happy things.
I know what you mean; I don't have any hopes of them redeeming him but I figured that since they won't, I will. Someone has to show our favorite archer some love and get him back to his original self!

Thank YOU for reading and making my day with your lovely feedback! &hearts
kashmir_heroin on May 14th, 2009 03:31 pm (UTC)
YES! THIS! if only show!Oliver made as much sense as yours! this was perfect and made me sooo happy! I'm just gonna live in this world from now on, if that's okay with you. ^_^

svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 14th, 2009 08:36 pm (UTC)
I figured since show!Ollie is frustrating me and I don't have much faith in the writers to fix him, I'd do it myself. And yes, feel free to live in this world. That's what I"m going to do. ;D

I LOVE THE CAPE. that was a great touch. :D
Ollie was obsessed with the cape so I thought it'd be nice if he gave Clark the one he'll eventually wear.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for reading and leaving such wonderful feedback! :D

Oh this is what I would love to see happen. I want our boys to get along and Ollie really does need to apologize to Clark. I loved it, at least in fanfics Collie can live.
svgurl: clark & olliesvgurl on May 15th, 2009 01:33 am (UTC)
You and me both. I figured that Ollie owes Clark and apology and they need to make up but I don't have much faith in the show to do that so I decided I would. :D

Fanfics save my sanity. LOL ;D

I'm glad you enjoyed this! Thanks for reading and commenting! :)
