Author’s Note: Written for greeneyelove , who had a crappy day and isn’t feeling well! 

Bruce shivered under the blankets.  Of all nights for the heat in Clark’s apartment building to go out!  As the owner, he would have to talk to the supervisor about this!  Though, to be fair, the man and his crew were working around-the-clock to get the furnace fixed.

 

It was a bitterly cold night in Metropolis, and the streets were quiet as most people chose not to venture out.  Clark was out on patrol, rounding up as many street people as he could and bringing them to shelters.  Crime was down on a night where the wind chill factor reached 16 degrees below zero, and Bruce hoped that meant that Clark would be back soon.

 

Bruce had put on a pair of Clark’s woolen pajamas and his own robe, and had layered onto the bed two blankets, a quilt made by Martha Kent, and an afghan that usually was draped across the couch in the living room.  He tried to read, his hands icy, and gave up pretense, putting on gloves to see if he could warm up.

 

Bruce’s teeth chattered as he read, thinking longingly of the fireplace he could be enjoying in the library at the Manor, but Clark would be disappointed if he left.  He had disappointed Clark on several occasions lately, missing lunches, dinners, and other dates due to work.

 

Damnit, I might end up as Frosty the Snowman but I’m not going anywhere!

 

Bruce gritted his teeth.

 

& & & & & &

 

Bruce was burrowed under the blankets, trying to get some sleep when he suddenly felt warm.

 

Toasty warm.

 

Happily warm.

 

Blessedly warm.

 

He smiled.

 

He snuggled even closer to the source of the heat with a happy sigh as strong arms encircled him from behind.

 

Nothing like having your own personal Kryptonian furnace.

Heh! Well, he has to make sure the people in the building are taken care of. After all, he's the owner! Besides, he's freezing! ;)

Again, thank you! This gives me a pretty images to go off to bed with.

Awwww.... *wibble* O_O I love Bruce's determination not to go anywhere, and the payoff being his own personal furnace. ^_^

Heh! Bruce is stubborn, as we all know. :)

And he is getting a great payoff! ;)

*grins* Thank you, Ladybug! I got the idea from some of the cold weather we've had this winter, and how Clark is just a great source of heat! ;)

Aww! I loved this. :) And this image:

>>Bruce had put on a pair of Clark’s woolen pajamas and his own robe, and had layered onto the bed two blankets, a quilt made by Martha Kent, and an afghan that usually was draped across the couch in the living room.

...made me smile goofily. This would make a great illustration.

Bravo!

Thank you, Theresa! :)

You're right, it would be a cool illo (no pun intended, heh heh).

I'm so glad you enjoyed this! :)

This was wonderfully fluffy. :-) *envies Bruce his personal furnace* I don't like being cold, either!

Cold is okay with me, though when it gets frosty enough to wear gloves at the keyboard, I wouldn't mind some heat! ;)

I envy Bruce, too! :)

Awww. That seems delightfully Clark-like.


It does, doesn't it? :)

Bruce’s teeth chattered as he read, thinking longingly of the fireplace he could be enjoying in the library at the Manor, but Clark would be disappointed if he left. He had disappointed Clark on several occasions lately, missing lunches, dinners, and other dates due to work.

*grins.* It's good to see Bruce putting that stubborn Bat attitude to such a good cause.


*laughs* Yes, usually his stubborness drives everyone crazy around him and can be negative, but this is a good thing! :)

Bruce was burrowed under the blankets, trying to get some sleep when he suddenly felt warm.

Toasty warm.

Happily warm.

Blessedly warm.

Aw, such a pretty image to end on!


It gave me the warm fuzzies. ;)

This was a beautiful little look into their lives together. :)

Thank you, Pervy! Sometimes the small things are the best. :)

Your icon is gorgeous!

Oh, this is delightful! *beams warmly herself* You do such a good job of capturing both the annoyance of being cold and the blessed happiness of finally being warm again...such a sweet little story!

*grins* Thank you, Jen! Nothing better on a bitterly-cold night than to snuggle under your quilt...especially is there's a Kryptonian under it! ;)

Frosty the Snowman, eh?

But surly with a kiss by a certain Kryptonian Frosty would go Bat again.....*grin*.

Nice to see Bruce in this suborn Batmode mocking the cold and waiting for Clark.

Sequel, please!

Bruce is nothing if not stubborn. ;)

Sequel, please!
