Summary: Lois and Clark are forced to spend a night together in a motel room
It was raining for three days straight now. Martha and Lois were in the kitchen at the Kent Farm drinking coffee.
"Thanks again for doing this, Lois."
Martha just asked Lois to go to Metropolis to pick up a file in her office. She needed it for a meeting Monday morning but couldn't go because she had to attend a fundraiser tonight.
Clark walked in the room and heard what his mother said. Lois got up to get a refill.
"Hey, Smallville. You want some?"
Clark leaned down so only Martha could hear.
"Mom, I could go to Metropolis and be back in just a few minutes. It would be a lot faster that way."
"I know, Clark, but I really need that file and only Lois as access to it."
She turned to Lois.
"That's very nice of you."
"Well I am your chief of staff, Mrs. Kent, and that's part of my job after all."
"Yes. But it's the weekend and you're not supposed to be working."
"It's no big deal. I had no plans anyway."
Lois couldn't believe she didn't have a date on a Saturday. Sad but true.
"It's a long drive and the weather worries me. I'd feel better if Clark would go with you."
"What?" they both said at the same time, looking shock.
"I'm a big girl. Don't worry about me. I can take care of myself."
"Yeah, Mom. She doesn't need a babysitter."
Lois shot him a dirty look.
"Really, Mrs. Kent, I'll be fine.
"I insist, Lois. Please, Clark, do this for me honey."
It was impossible to say no to Martha.
"All right, I'll go."
"I'm sure you two are gonna have lots of fun.
Martha went upstairs to get ready.
"Well, Smallville, looks like we're gonna have ourselves a road trip."
"I can't wait," he said sarcastically.
"Geez! Try to show a little more enthusiasm! It's not the end of the world!"
"It's not like we have a choice, either," he replied.
"Right. So let's try and make the most of it. C'mon! Let's get moving!"
They got in Lois's red mustang. After ten minutes of silence, Clark turned the radio on, changing the stations until he found one he liked.
"Country music? Are you kidding me? There's no way I'm listening to that, FarmBoy!"
Lois quickly changed it to a rock station and turned the volume up. The funky sound of the Red Hot Chili Peppers began to play.
"Ha! That's what I call good music!"
Clark shook his head and turned the volume down.
"What's the matter, Smallville? Too loud for ya?"
"Are you talking to me? Sorry, I can't hear you. My ears are still ringing."
After two hours of driving in the pouring rain, they had to stop at a road block. Lois lowered her window.
"What's wrong, officer?"
"The road is closed because of a flood."
"For how long?"
"I'm not sure. At least for the night."
"Crap!" she exclaimed after the policeman left.
"So what do we do now?" asked Clark. "We can't go home. Mom needs that file."
"I saw a motel a few miles back. We could spend the night there and go to Metropolis in the morning. What do you think?"
"OK. Good idea."
When they got to the motel it was already dark even if it was only six o'clock.
"That place looks spooky." said Clark.
She thought about teasing him but he was right. This was Bates Motel's perfect clone.
"Let's hope Norman doesn't work here."
"Funny, Lois. Real funny."
They got out of the car and ran to the door. By the time they got inside they were soaking wet. The man at the reception stared at Lois with eyes wide open, his jaw almost dropping to the floor. Clark frowned and looked at her but quickly turned away, blushing. Lois glanced down and found out her white tank top was completely see through. She crossed her arms to cover her breasts.
"We would like two rooms, please."
"Sorry, lady. I've got only one room left."
Great, she thought. Just great.
"There's only one bed."
Lois and Clark looked at each other, thinking, how could this be any worst? But they were hungry, wet, and there was no other place around.
"We'll take it!" they both shouted at the same time.
