Bruce had met Lois at an awkward time in his life, when things were just starting to make sense after a long period of turmoil and grief. She seemed willing and able, perfect and wonderful, everything he could want, everything he might need, and yet there was the one thing he couldn't bring himself to tell her.

Batman was the wake of everything that he believed was good, and yet everything that, according to the people of Gotham and the police, because Batman wanted it that way, wasn't good. Bruce couldn't bring himself to tell her who he was, what he did at night, despite what she might have seen him, past all the garbage and fame, past all the playboy antics. Was it worth dragging her down? Was it worth wondering if she might exploit him?

It only left him begging to the question to be answered: did he trust her.

And then, one day, just like that, Lois stopped returning his calls. Stopped texting, emailing, anything that was some sort of social way of them interacting, to stay together.

Confused, after a long period of silence on her part, Bruce left a message at the Daily Planet for her to return his call, or message. One or the other, they needed to talk.

Bruce Wayne had been, amongst other things, an entirely unexpected surprise in Lois's life. She would've never seen herself linking hands with a man like him; she'd sworn off the filthy rich playboy type since Oliver, considering the trouble a little too much for even her to deal with.

But since when had she ever listened to her own better judgment? There she'd gone, stumbling her way through a relationship with a man with even more issues than Oliver had, it seemed. And she'd really, really started to believe she was falling for him.

And then came the lies. It turned out Bruce and Oliver had a lot more than common than she'd realized. It was only a matter of time before Lois discovered Bruce's better half. She'd been so excited with the discovery until she'd realized... He had no intention of sharing it with her.

Well. She'd given him plenty of opportunities to fess up. Cut the bullshit and be honest with her. And if he wasn't going to, then what was the point of continuing on? So she'd dropped him. She deserved better than a man who could so easily look her in the eye and flat out lie to her.

She'd attempted to push him from her mind, almost thought she'd gotten out of it with a clean break. And then, out of the blue, his voice popped up on her office voicemail. Her response was a short text (though it'd taken her forever to come up with) to the number she hadn't accessed in quite a while.

Got your message. Working late all week, but drop by if you want.
