Si operor ignoro vos.

Title: Si operor ignoro vos.
Genre: PG 13, Pre-slash
Summary: It's all words until someone understands them.

Si operor ignoro vos

"Inconcessus fructus, quot mores ego mos intereo si ego operor ignoro vos." Lex murmured softly... the words slipping off of his lips. To his ears, nothing in his tone sounded off or provocative or anything like anger or hurt or other justification for Clark's sudden tears.

"Clark, what's wrong?"

"Don't say that again. Please, don't say that, don't mean that."

"Say what?" Suddenly, it dawns on him..."you know latin?"

Clark nodds miserably and shrugs, "It's a required course."

"Why didn't you tell me?" Lex rasps, finding it incredibly hard to supress instincts that years of suspiscion and mistrust have drilled into him.

"Everything you were saying..." Clark gulped, looking away as Lex remembers every thing he has whispered to Clark in latin and blushes... "You didn't seem to want me to know... even though you were saying them to me."

"That's even more of a reason to tell me." Embarassed, aching at the thought that Clark had known what he was saying but never reacted, and tired of being suspicious of everyone, Lex is almost afraid to let go of the hurt and suspiscion that were his first reaction.

"I know... but," Clark still looks away.

"But?" Lex asks harshly.

"Ut mihi, vos es quoque inconcessus fructus, spiritus de meus animus, quod cruor de meus pectus pectoris : Vos teneo, materia legends es incidere ex." Clark meets Lex's eyes... frankly, hopefully, anxiously waiting for Lex's reaction.

Then grins, realizing that for all of the languages that Lex can speak fluently -- even curse in-- he's speechless.

That. is. so. beautiful. I cannot thank you enough for translating those lines, nor tell how much they struck me as the perfact thing to say to the one you love, that loves you, but that you cannot have
