Summary: Clark and Lois are worried about Oliver.
A/N: For my ot3_100 table, prompt 'panic'
“I’m worried about Oliver.”
Lois looked up at Clark’s declaration. She had been watching Supernatural when Clark had spoken. That Jensen Ackles was a hottie; he looked familiar though, but Lois couldn’t place where she’d seen him. It didn’t really matter; she was in a relationship with two of most gorgeous men in the country (not that she was biased or anything). Yes, Lois Lane was a lucky woman.
But seeing the frown on her lover’s face and hearing the solemn tone of his voice, Lois was concerned.
“I don’t know,” Clark answered, sighing. He took the seat next to her and Lois switched off the TV. “Don’t you think he’s acting off lately?”
Lois sighed. “Yes,” she admitted. “He has been different.” She didn’t want to face it, but Oliver had changed. He was more distant, and that scared her.
“I just spoke to him on the phone,” Clark told her. Ollie was in Seattle on business, but he was coming back the next day, which made Lois happy. She always felt incomplete unless both of them were there with her.
“And?” Lois prompted.
“Well, he said that he’ll be done tomorrow afternoon,” Clark said slowly, “But there was a change of plans and he’s not coming back until the following day. Something about having dinner with people …”
That set off alarms in her head. Ollie always came right back home after meetings; he claimed he missed them too much to stay away.
“It was just something in the tone of his voice,” Clark continued. He glanced at her fearfully. “You don’t think he’s having second thoughts about the three of us, do you?”
“No,” Lois said firmly, “He loves us, I know he does.”
“Yeah,” Clark said, but he didn’t look convinced.
“Look, we’ll talk to him when he gets back,” Lois stated, trying not to panic. But even the thought of losing Oliver was making her feel sick inside. “We’ll be okay,” she finished.
“We can’t lose him,” Clark whispered, the sadness in his eyes making Lois pull him into her arms. He hugged her back.
“We won’t,” she promised.
That was a promise she intended to keep. Because a life without Oliver was one that she didn’t even want to think about.
