A/N: This is going to be a collection of ChLex song fics. This first one
just uses the idea from a couple lines in a song but later chapters will be
the usual song fic format. Anyone has any good ideas for songs I'd love to
A Good Day in Hell
By the Eagles
Can't you see she wants you?
She has you deep in her eyes
Lana shook her head as she watched Lex watch Chloe leave the Talon. She was
sure that Lex had offered her friend a ride. Lex would take any excuse to
spend time with Chloe. Just like Chloe would try and spend any time she
could with Lex. She wondered why the two didn't see it.
Chloe had taught herself to be very observant and to read people. But it
seemed to Lana like Lex proved the exception to that rule. Chloe refused to
see that Lex cared for her as much as she cared for him. And Lex was
notorious for his intelligence and perception, so it was a mystery to Lana
why he didn't see that Chloe returned his feelings. Since they were both
her friends she decided to do something about it.
Lex was distracted from his thoughts of Chloe when Lana slid into the booth
across from him. "Hello, Lana."
He could see that Lana was wanting to say something, but she didn't seem to
know how to start. "What's on your mind?"
"Just thinking about a couple friends of mine. And I don't need to ask
what's n your mind. Or should I say who is on your mind."
Lex's eye's became suddenly intense at Lana's words. "I don't know what you

"And you're the one who can't see that she loves you. I've seen the way she
looks at you any time she comes into the Talon and you're here. It's the
same way you look at her so don't try and tell me you don't love her."
Lex didn't bother to deny her accusation. She was right, he did love Chloe.
"Lana, even if you're right and she . . . cares about me the same way I
care about her it doesn't matter."
"Of course it matters, Lex."
"Right now it can't matter. She's too young," Lex explained.
Lana fell silent for a moment. "Alright. I can't argue that. But once we
graduate she plans to go to Metropolis University. By then she won't be too
"How about a deal. You don't say another word about this and when Chloe
moves to Metropolis I'll talk to her, and hope you're right about her
feelings for me."
"Fair enough," agreed Lana, before walking away, not seeing the smile that
played on Lex's lips. He'd already planned to talk to Chloe when she moved
to Metropolis, so all the deal had done was get Lana to leave things alone.
He found that he was already impatient for that day to arrive. But he had
learned patience from his father, and knew that Chloe was more than worth
