He brightened quickly, and looked back at her again.
“I’m sure we can figure something out… after all, when has this relationship ever played by the rules?”
But once again, Lois’ eyes were drawn to Jason. This isn’t a decision I can make alone… She crouched down beside him, taking his hands in hers. He looked back at her in that lost little boy way he had, the one that made her want to gather him into her arms and shield him from every kind of pain. But she pushed through, her heart fluttering madly, and asked softly, “Kiddo, you’ve found out so much in such a short time, haven’t you?” Jason nodded, biting his lip. “Clark and I love each other very much. If we didn’t, you wouldn’t be here now. But, I don’t want us to do anything that would make you upset. What do you think about all this?”
Jason stared at her a moment, then turned his eyes up to Clark, who was looking like he was trying not to shift nervously from foot to foot. Then he gazed on the waiting forms of Jor-El and Lara, before finally coming back to Clark and Lois again. Lois desperately tried not to interrupt his solemn contemplation, but it was difficult, as anxiously as she awaited his answer.
