    Don't Come Natural

    Title: Don't Come Natural
    Author: Phoenixnz
    Pairing: Clark/Alicia
    Genre: Episode-related, winter
    Rating: G
    Time setting: Season 4 - Unsafe

    Summary: For all his abilities, some things just took more than super powers

    a/n: This was part of a fanfic challenge and I was inspired to write some short pieces. Some of these short pieces will be part of show canon and others will be offscreenville or post show. Yes, I know the title isn't grammatically correct, but it just seemed to fit.

    Clark had long gotten over the awkward phase. He could still remember when he’d turned fourteen how he had shot up several inches - or at least it felt that way - within a short time and that sudden growth spurt had led to all kinds of problems. Such as tripping over himself. Of course, some of that had to do with the fact that Lana had had the necklace made from meteor rock, since he’d always seemed to do it around her.

    His parents had told him it was just a part of growing up. Which he could understand. But this … this was another matter entirely.

    “Not scared are you, Clark?”

    He could hear the laughter in the blonde girl’s voice. Alicia was already a few yards in front of him on the ice, skating as if she was born to it. Whereas he could barely keep from slipping. This was supposed to have been a fun, relaxing date. If he could call it a date considering Alicia had just got out of Belle Reve. Supposedly cured from the obsession that had last year almost led to her killing Lana.

    Someone skated past Clark, barely missing him and he stumbled, flailing his arms to try to regain his sense of balance.

    It was funny that he’d lived in Smallville for over fifteen years and he’d never been ice skating before. Even if the rink was actually in Granville. A lot of kids from Smallville High apparently went there in winter time. There was even supposed to be an ice hockey team comprised of kids from both high schools, but Clark had never been to a game.

    “Come on,” Alicia called. She continued to skate ahead of him, following the other skaters as they all did a circuit on the rink.

    “How the heck …” he began.

    He stared as a group of kids skated past him effortlessly. This was so not fair. Here he was, a guy who could run faster than … well, a speeding bullet and lift a tractor but he just could not get the hang of this. He guessed that for all his abilities, there were some things that just didn’t come naturally.

    Alicia reached his side and skated past him again. She laughed at his awkward fumbling gait.

    “Super powers can’t save you now, Clark Kent.”
