Clark's head was throbbing. 'Impossible,' he thought groggily. The only time he ever got headaches was as a side effect of kryptonite. There hadn't been any kryptonite. Had there?
Through the mental fog he became aware of an insistent pounding at the door. He squinted in the direction of the foyer, but discovered he couldn't use his x-ray vision. He began to rise, but felt something metalic in his hand. He glanced down. A revolver?
Flashing blue and red lights played across the draperies from the street below as Clark tried to shake the fog from his head. The pounding at the door became louder and there were men shouting. The police.
Clark finally saw her. Lois was sprawled on the sofa, a crimson stream beneath her body staining the soft white upholstery.
"Lois!" Clark rose unsteadily and began to stagger forward. The door burst open.
"Drop the gun!"
Okay, hit me, this isn't fanfic
I'm sorry, but I have to post this message in the fanfic forum since a few people who don't read the fanfic related forum are confused by the links to a new fanfic message board wondering if my message board is moving.
The answer is no. Those links are to a new, but separate message board opened by a member of the Kerth Committee. That board relates to the "catching up" thread in the fanfic related forum. If you read that thread it will save me from trying to explain it in this forum where the explanation doesn't belong.
Sorry to interrupt the flow of fic. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming
