Ch. 22 Writing Update #2

And.... it's done!  I'm sending it off now.  I will probably post it in the morning, around 8am EST if all goes well. 3488 words!  The longest chapter in the story by a good chunk!

And here's another tease for you:

-----

She realized that it wasn’t the light that had awakened her.  She could hear the sound of sizzling, and the smell of home cooking filled her nostrils.  Sitting up on her elbows, she could now see Clark, dressed in a different set of pajamas, thankfully this time with a robe over it, standing at the stovetop.  He was facing her, the counter and kitchen table between them, but he was looking down at what he was doing instead of up at her.

She took that moment to observe him.  His hair was still mussed from sleeping, and he wore his bedclothes with an easy grace that was difficult to describe.  Considering she had really mostly seen him in either tight-fitting spandex or ill-fitting suits, this was a very nice change.  He was humming softly as he worked to make them breakfast.

Then a small grin spread across his face, and Lois realized that maybe he hadn't been completely unaware that she was now awake.  “Good morning,” he said in a pleasant rumble, not looking up.  “How do you like your eggs?”

Umm, Clark...I like mine scrambled. With cheese. :-)

And guess who's finished writing for the day. *points to self and beams* No easy task after being juiced with caffeine all afternoon, let me tell you!

I must feed my growling belly, and then I'll be back to post what I've got. Stay tuned, kids! :-)

You guys usually do get the unbeta'd version. ;-) Sometimes it's not possible for my beta, sherylyn to get chapters back to me quickly. Especially now that she's back to teaching courses again.

But I can make you wait, if you'd rather... *evil grin*

Oh, wait. You said you don't care. After dinner, then!

*considers making eggs*

ETA: I hate that you can't edit comments on LJ! *makes a face*

Well, here it is tomorrow morning! Hee hee. So it's not much longer to wait. In fact, my most intense beta has already been over it, and edits have been made. Perhaps I could post it now? Hmm?
