Summary: A challenge drabble for the LJ community, Wednesday 100. The challenge was to base a drabble on the "word of the day" for your birthday.
It was done. After two years of omissions, half-truths, and outright lies, Clark had done it.
He told Lex the ineffable truth. All of it. Everything from his alien origins to his freaky powers to his undeniable desire for his best friend.
Yes, Clark had poured out his heart twenty minutes before Lex's second trip down the aisle.
Now he waited. Lex was silent for a long period before he spoke, "I suppose that makes sense. Let's go. Helen's waiting for me."
All Clark could do was stare. Now he knew why things that were ineffable should stay that way.
ineffable \in-EF-uh-buhl\, adjective:1. Incapable of being expressed in words; unspeakable; unutterable; indescribable. 2. Not to be uttered; taboo.
