A/N: This is a sequel to my Superman story, SR-Healing Hearts. I knew when I finished that story that I wanted to write about them adjusting to married life. So, as this first chapter begins, Lois and Clark have just returned from their honeymoon, and they're still in that 'mode,' ergo, the M rating. Lois is pregnant, although they don't know it yet, and Jason will be returning home after spending a week in Gotham with his other Dad.

Read on! :D
Chapter 1: Home Again
The sights and sounds of downtown Metropolis slowly entered the car as Lois and Clark made their way through the city. As their minds slowly accepted the fact that they were back home and their lives were about to truly begin, a little reflection was definitely in order. Thinking back over the past week, they could not have asked for a more perfect honeymoon location. The resort in Tahiti had been like a dream, the clear blue green waters, the warm weather, the delicious food, everything was perfect. Their week in paradise went entirely too quickly.
Lois glanced at her husband sitting beside her. They were on their way to Clark's apartment to pack up his 'superhero outfits,' along with the rest of his belongings. She smiled and wondered again how she had been so blind for so long. She shook her head at herself. You call yourself a reporter. He really is a good actor. He had everybody fooled.
Her mind couldn't help returning to the island. She inwardly sighed. Clark was such an incredible lover, and she had to admit she wasn't in Metropolis right now, but back on that island in bed with her husband. She inwardly sighed again. The honking horns, the screeching tires, and the police sirens all brought her back to reality, back to their jobs, but also back to their son, Jason, and back to their future together.
Clark saw her smile. "What's that smile about, or do I need to ask?"
"Well, if you must know, I was thinking about the island and how much I'll miss it," Lois said waiting for his reaction.
Clark pouted. "The island? Is that all you'll miss?"
Lois laughed as she took his hand. "I'll miss the island yes, but I'll miss our quiet days and nights, just the two of us together without any worries or rescues, or anything, just us together in that huge bed doing all kinds of wicked things," she chuckled at his expression.
Clark's cheeks reddened. "Ok, Lois, I see your point. You don't have to go on."
Lois laughed again. "Clark, you really are too much. I love you, you know."
He squeezed her hand. "I love you, too, Lois, very much."
It was early evening when they arrived at Clark's apartment. "Come on up, Lois, this won't take but a few minutes. Once I get all my things, I'll turn in my key to the landlord, and I'm all yours … forever," Clark said and smiled. He took her hand and headed for the elevator.
As they rode the elevator to his apartment, Lois realized she had never seen his apartment. Thinking back on it now, she realized that Clark did have a hard time finding a place after being away from so long, and she felt bad for not helping him. "Clark, I just realized I've never seen your apartment. When was the last time you were here?"
"It was just before our wedding. Jimmy and I dressed here."
"You won't have any problems getting out of your lease, will you? It hasn't been a year since you came back."
"No, this place had a month to month lease, so it worked out perfect for me."
As they entered his apartment, Lois looked around and it was just as she suspected his place would be like. "It's a very nice place, Clark. So, show me where they are," Lois said wanting to know where they were hidden.
"Show you what? Oh, you mean the suits? Follow me, they're right in here," he said and went inside his walk-in closet and there hidden behind a wall of clothing was a panel. He slid it open and there were three Superman suits and red boots.
"So, this is your lair, Clark, and you have only three suits? Don't they get dirty? How do you clean them? Are they wash and wear? Who made them? What are they made of?" Lois couldn't explain her fascination with the suit. It was different from the earlier suits from years ago.
Clark laughed. "Why so many questions about the suit, Lois? I didn't know you were so fascinated by it. I'll tell you all about it later. It's getting late. We have to get to the house. Jason and Richard will be there soon."
"Oh, alright, do you need any help packing?" That was a stupid question, Lois. He has super speed remember?
"No, not really, you can wait in the bedroom. I'll be out in a second." He chuckled. My lair?
He was right. As soon as she sat down on the bed, blinked several times when she saw a blur before her eyes then Clark walked into the bedroom with three suitcases packed and ready to go. Even the dressers were emptied.
"Wow, I guess I'll have to get use to seeing that, although, maybe you could not do that when we're at home. I don't want Jason to get any ideas. He's still so young and things could get broken. And that thing you do with your eyes, you probably shouldn't do that either."
"Of course, Lois, I promise, no superpowers in the house," Clark said wondering what else he'd have to do differently.
"Clark, you do understand, don't you?" Lois said wondering if she'd hurt his feelings.
"Sure, I do. Jason will be curious and I'll answer him truthfully. He is still very young, but when he's ready, I'll teach him control. The sooner he learns it the better. You know, when I was growing up, my parents didn't know what to do or how to help me control my powers. They did the best they could, but Jason will have me to help him from now on."
She went to him then and gave him a hug and a kiss. "Thank you, Clark. I knew you would understand."
"Of course I do, Lois." He kissed her then, but stopped after a moment. He lifted his head listening.
"What is it? Did you hear something?" Lois asked thinking he'd miss Jason's homecoming if he had to leave now. "No, nothing the League can't handle. We should hurry. I wanted to check in with them later tonight, but I wanted to see Jason and get us settled first. I really missed him."
"I've missed him too. I hope he was alright with Richard," Lois said.
"I'm sure Jason had a great time with Richard. Let's go."
It was after dinner time when they arrived at the house on Riverside Drive and they could see Richard's car out front.
"Clark, they're here," Lois exclaimed as they drove up to the front of the house. "Jason, Jason, we're home," she called entering the house.
"Welcome home, Lois," Richard said coming into the foyer.
"Oh, Richard, how are you?" Lois asked giving him a warm hug. I'd forgotten he still had a key. "Where's Jason," she asked looking for her son.
"He's upstairs. He couldn't wait to get back to his room and play with all of his toys."
"Hi, Lois," Lana said coming in from the kitchen. "Welcome home. I brought over a couple of casseroles for you guys to eat. I know it was a long flight, so you must be pretty tired and hungry."
"Thank you, Lana, that was really sweet of you, and yes, it's good to be home." I can see now why Clark fell for her. I thought it would be awkward with our ex's being together, but it's not bad, not bad at all.
Clark came into the house then loaded down with luggage under both arms as well as carrying several pieces in his hands, and a carry-on bag hanging between his teeth. Embarrassed, he dropped the bag between his teeth and spoke to everyone. "Hi, Richard, Lana. It's good to see you both."
"Hi, Clark, welcome home," Lana said happy to see her old friend.
"Thanks, Lana. Richard, it's good to see you," Clark said repeating himself as he shook Richard's hand. "Where's Jason? Oh, I hear him ... umm, I'll take these bags upstairs ... umm ... I'll go get him," he mumbled and hurried up the stairs. This is awkward and I don't know why, he thought.
Lois shook her head at her husband's manners, but she couldn't help wondering what that was about. "Come on in guys. So, Lana, have you snagged this guy yet?" Lois couldn't help teasing her former fiancé.
Clark entered Jason's room as quietly as he could. He could see Jason playing with his Superman doll, holding it high above his head as if it were flying. He smiled. "Jason, we're home."
"Dad!" Jason jumped off the bed and into his father's arms. Clark still couldn't believe this beautiful little boy was his son and he could hold him, kiss him and see him everyday from now on. "I missed you son."
"I missed you too, Dad." Jason pulled back and touched his father's cheek. Are you crying?"
Clark just pulled him back into his arms. "Only a little. Come on, your Mom is downstairs with Richard and Lana and she can't wait to see you."
Richard was use to Lois's jabs, so he took it in stride. "Lois, we only started dating a month ago," Richard said smiling at Lana.
"Can you stay and eat with us? I'm sure Clark would love to catch up." Lois asked.
"Oh, we can't stay. We've got a long drive back to Gotham, and Lana starts her new job tomorrow."
"Really, what kid of job, Lana?" Lois asked curious.
"Well, after studying the food industry in college, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises called Wayne Foods offered me a job developing organic produce. With my background in farming, there's a growing demand by retailers for organic foods. Wayne Foods is on the cutting edge with its research and development division. I'm very excited about it."
"That sounds fascinating, Lana. You'll have to tell me all about it one day." Lois leaned forward and whispered, "but tell me, have you met Bruce Wayne?"
"No, I haven't, why?"
"Surely, you've heard of him? He's a billionaire playboy and he owns, or his family owns this huge conglomerate based in Gotham City. They employ thousands of people around the world. I would love to interview him."
Lana shrugged. "I doubt I would ever come in contact with him, but I admit he does sound fascinating."
"Oh he is, very fascinating."
Richard listened to their conversation and shook his head. Women!
Clark tried not to listen, but when Bruce's name was mentioned his ears perked up.
"Who's fascinating?" Clark asked coming down the stairs with Jason in his arms.
"Mom!" Jason hollered, jumping down from his father's arms and running to his mother.
"Jason, munchkin, how are you honey? I think you've grown an inch in a week." She hugged him and kissed his cheek, smoothing his hair from his forehead. "Were you a good boy for Daddy Richard?"
"Yes, Mom, I was good. Did you bring me a souvenir like you promised?"
"Of course, I did, honey. It's in the luggage. I'll give it to you later, alright?"
Jason pouted. "Ok, Mom."
"Who's fascinating?" Clark asked again.
"Clark, the ladies were discussing Bruce Wayne and how Lois wants to meet him and interview him," Richard replied.
"Oh, I see. I've heard of him. He's a billionaire, right?"
"From what I hear, yes, he is," Richard replied having no interest in rich playboys. "Well, we'll be heading out now. It's been a long day and I know you both must be exhausted." He winked at Clark with that last statement.
Clark chuckled and shook Richard's hand. "Thanks, again, Richard, for taking care of Jason. We appreciate it."
"Sure anytime. Come here, buddy. Give Daddy a hug goodbye."
"Bye, Daddy. I'll see you soon?" Jason asked, not wanting to say goodbye.
"Sure you will, remember, we have a date in a few weeks, and I'll call you tomorrow. Bye son."
"Ok, bye, Daddy. Goodbye, Ms. Lana."
"Bye, Jason," Lana said and gave him a hug and a kiss.
"Thanks again, Richard. We'll talk later, Lana, and thanks again for the food. Good night," Lois said and closed the front door.
After watching Jason and Richard's interaction, Clark couldn't help but feel envious. He stood in the foyer with his hands in his pockets thinking he had a lot of years to make up for. I have to gain his trust. Jason has to believe that I would never leave him or his mother again, not ever.
After a light dinner, giving Jason his souvenirs, and putting him to bed, Lois and Clark found themselves alone in their bedroom. A few moments of awkward silence followed. Clark couldn't help it. He stared at the bed remembering that Lois and Richard also slept in this bed.
Lois caught his expression and knew what he was thinking. She went to him and took his hands in hers. "Clark, it's just a bed. We can get a new one if you want."
"Well, maybe, but only if you want to."
"I'll order it in the morning. Now, why don't we relax? Let's get these clothes off, shall we?" Lois asked as she couldn't wait to get Clark into bed.
"Humm?" Lois whispered, distracted by Clark's strong throat and wide chest. She could feel how tense he was. "Just relax, Clark, it's only a bed," she said as she gave him a shove and he landed on the bed with a bounce. Lois giggled as she jumped on the bed and proceeded to help her husband out of his clothes.
Once Clark was in his boxers, Lois's mouth went dry. She couldn't help but stare at his chest, his arms and his strong thighs. She sat up then and pulled off her blouse and skirt. Clark watched her with an amused expression on his face. "A little help would be nice," she giggled trying to unfasten her bra. Clark pulled her down on the bed and helped her remove her bra and underwear.
They both sobered suddenly. Clark stared at his wife amazed at how lucky he was to have a woman like Lois in his bed every night. He pushed her hair out of her eyes and stared at her lips, then leaned down and slanted his mouth against hers. Lois melted as she pulled him closer kissing him back.
Soon Clark's boxers came off and Lois's mouth dried up again and she forgot to breathe. Clark was so turned on, it just slipped out. "You like what you see?" She nodded unable to do much else. "Touch me."
Lois was so turned on that she thought she would do anything if he just kept looking at her like that. She reached down and touched his erection moving her hand over the tip and felt the moisture there. She licked her lips. Clark closed his eyes. Lois had never done this before, but she couldn't resist him. She touched her lips and her tongue to the tip of his erection and it twitched against her lips. She became bolder stroking him with her tongue and hand. Clark moaned and moved his hips in time with her hand. Clark was in heaven. It felt so good, but he was fast approaching the edge and he wanted to be inside of her before that happened.
He stilled her hand, pulled her head up and kissed her hard thrusting his tongue inside her mouth. Lois couldn't think about anything. Clark was in control of her body and she wanted him to do whatever he wanted with her. He entered her then with a smooth glide and clutched her tighter against him, pushing and thrusting inside. Lois lifted her legs and arms pulling him closer. Soon, they were climbing to that peak and they both reached it together kissing and caressing each other and landed safely in each other's arms.
Several minutes passed, as Clark stroked her hair and arms. "Are you alright? I got a little carried away."
She didn't respond. "Lois?"
Lois pulled her mind back from oblivion. "Humm, what did you say?"
"Nevermind, go to sleep." He paused "I love you, Lois," Clark whispered kissing her temple and holding her tight.
"I love you too, Clark," Lois whispered snuggling against his heat.
