Serendipity : to make discoveries, by accident and sagacity, of things not in quest of.

Metropolis, 2009

Clark had never thought that he would be able to find a soul mate, especially after everything that had happened between Lana and him. But, Lois had changed his mind. Everything had changed.

The way that they had met was very serendipitous – a fortunate accident had brought them together. Six years ago, Lois had come to Smallville to investigate the supposed death of her cousin Chloe. When a storm made her take a wrong direction, she had found Clark stark naked in a cornfield. It was like it was meant to be.

As time passed, their friendship had become stronger and his feelings for her had deepened too. Soon, Clark had fallen in love with Lois, but the only person who had noticed that fact was Martha Kent, Clark's mother. She suggested that he open his heart to Lois and maybe she would feel the same way.

But unfortunately, she hadn't. She had only seen him as a friend and nothing more. She didn't' want to complicate or ruin their friendship.

They were in Metropolis airport, waiting for Lois to travel to Geneva to meet with her father and sister. Clark had wanted to go with her, to say goodbye.

"Lois, are you sure you don't want to stay?" Clark asked with a smile, hopeful she would change her mind.

"Clark, don't. I already made up my mind. I need to go. My family needs me right now. My father is sick and my sister is a nut. They need me," Lois reminds him in a serious tone. "Besides, don't start with that soul mate talk again."

"But Lois…you saw the bracelet glowing," Clark said with conviction. "It has to mean something."

"I don't think so. It's probably one of these bracelets that glow in the dark. I'm sorry, Clark, but that doesn't mean anything."

Clark frowned, frustrated with Lois's stubbornness. "How can you say that?" he asked, angry and hurt by Lois's words. "It's destiny, Lois. We are meant for each other."

"You really believe that, don't you?" Lois asked, looking at her watch. "Okay, come on. I still have ten minutes before my flight."

"Where are we going?" Clark inquired in confusion as Lois grabs him by his arm.

"To test your theory," Lois explained with a devilish smirk.

In the airport, they found a very old bookstore where Lois decided to buy the first edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

"Okay. I bought a new cell-phone this week and since you don't have it yet, I'll write the number on the front page with my name," Lois explained to Clark, who just smiled.

"Great."

"But I'm not going to give this book to you. I'll sell in the minute this plane lands in Geneva. If we're meant for each other, this book will return to you," Lois explained as she put the book in her purse and took her wallet. "Now, you'll write your Metropolis phone number in this five dollar bill," Lois instructed him

"And you call me weird," Clark teased her after he wrote his phone number on the bill.

Lois went to a coffee shop and used the money to buy a cup of coffee for herself. "Same thing with this money. If we are meant for each other, it will return to me. If not…"

"Lois, this is insane, why can't we just be together?" Clark asked, irritated. "And I thought you didn't believe in this kind of stuff."

"I don't, but you do. I want to prove once for all that we aren't soul mates. Clark, I have to go," She informed him before giving him a kiss on the cheek. "I'll see you."

"How?" Clark asked her nervous. "I don't have your phone, address… I have nothing."

"You know I'll be in Geneva. That's enough," Lois pointed out to Clark as we went to board the plane. "Bye, Clark. Have a good life."

"Please, Lois. Don't go. Stay, please."

"I have to go, Clark. I'm sorry."

"But…"

"I'm sorry…" Lois said again before entering the plane. Clark stood, watching her go. He had never thought anything would be this difficult, but Lois is the kind of woman that was worth fighting for, worth waiting for. He would do everything to find her again, even if took years to do it.
