Summary: A challenge drabble for the LJ community, Wednesday 100. The challenge was Clark and Lex holding hands.
Lex stood on his father's balcony looking out over Metropolis. Actually, it was all his now. His balcony, his city. A cool breeze passed behind him. Without looking, Lex knew that he was there. Lex heard the steps as he approached.
"Is he gone?"
"Yes, he's dead."
A long period of silence followed.
"Lex, I know you did it, but I don't know why."
"He found out about you."
Strong fingers grasped Lex's more slender ones. "I love you Lex, but I..."
"I know, Clark."
A final squeeze of Lex's hand, and then he was gone.
