Conversation in a Metropolis Parking Lot

by Marcus L. Rowland

"You know Superman, right?"

"A little," Lois said cautiously.

"He single?"

"why are you asking?"

"My ex wanted a mommy, not a girlfriend," said the brunette, "and most men aren't strong enough for me. Superman might be."


The stranger lifted the front of Lois's jeep, one-handed.

"You're Kryptonian?"

"Naaah, mystic destiny."

"Any other powers?"

"Speed, healing, reflexes."

"Okay. Well," said Lois, mind racing "don't waste your time..."


"Tough day?" asked Clark.

"Routine. By the way, if you hear rumours Superman's gay, ignore them."

"That I'm... gay?"

"Ignore them."

"If you're sure... all right."

"Five by five," murmured Lois.
