Jonathon and I were on our way to Lex's to drop-off some produce. It had been a long morning. Clark had woken up "floating" again. It scared sometimes. I sometimes wonder what will happen if he becomes so powerful he won't need us anymore. Jonathon keeps on reassuring me that it will never happen but i'm still not so sure.
As we pulled up to Lex's driveway all we could hear was blaring music. Some kind
of punk-rock. Something Clark and his friends would listen to. The think the song
was screaming about love. I couldn't quite make out the words. Jonathon was in a
state of shock.
"Only a Luthor would do this at nine in the morning."
"Relax, Jonathon, I'm sure there's a good explanation for this." At least I hoped so or Lex was in some trouble.
We found Lex laying down in his office , in his pajamas, eating ice cream.
" Um, Lex. Is everything ok?"
" Hello Kents. Everything's fine.... actually, no. My ice cream's gone." He threw the ice cream box across the room.
"Lex, What's going on?" Jonathon actually looked concerned. He walked over to the stereo and turned it off.
"Nothing's wrong! Really."
"Lex, you're in your pajamas eating ice cream. You don't normally do that. Now what's wrong?"
"It's just... me and Victoria. We broke up."
Jonathon walked over to him and put his hand on Lex's shoulder.
"Lex. You're going to have breakups. You're only 21 though. There are plenty of girls out there for you. I was 25 when I met Martha. Plenty of time Lex."
Lex sat up(finally) " You know, Mr. Kent, I think you might be right. I don't need that slut."
"Well, I wouldn't call her that Lex-"
" It's true , Mr. Kent. Now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna go take a shower." He walked out of the room without another word leaving Jonathon and me speechless.
