Risks of dating an older man postdating prescriptions
I promise." * The rest of the evening had been a blur, Kara only able to spend a few more minutes in Lena's company before mumbling a lame excuse and leaving. "Oh." Clark frowned, "But why-" "Why aren't I talking to Alex? "I was going to say why didn't you just call me, but obviously this is very important to you." Clark said softly, then after a long pause asked, "And who's Maggie? It happens a lot." Kara admitted, just not normally by women, and more importantly, "I just... " There was a brief pause and then Clark frowned in confusion, "Mansplaining? Regardless of how things should have been, I feel like your big brother. She had then quickly changed into her superhero costume and spent about an hour flying around the city. " "Erm, you should probably talk to Alex next time you're in National City." Kara smiled nervously. But you've always been there for me when I really needed you. " "Yeah." Kara sighed, "You know, when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending and demeaning way. It's just, I know you're supposed to be older, but now I'm technically older-" "Arguably." Kara grumbled. And part of that is knowing when to stay out of your way and let you solve your own problems, but you have no idea how many times I've wanted to act like an overprotective jackass, only for you to overcome incredible odds and make me so proud of you." Clark confessed, "And I am so, so proud of you Kara. why come to me unless you wanted me to tell you everything you already know? "I'm fine thanks to you." Lena smiled, closing and locking the door before turning back to Kara, "And Supergirl of course." "Good." Kara smiled back. To explore the possibility, without, you know..." "Being me." Kara smiled softly, "When I'm Supergirl, I feel like I can do anything..." "It's not just a costume..." Clark continued for her.There was a brief, kind of awkward silence and then Lena asked, "Did you want something? No, I..." Kara stammered, taken off-guard and not entirely sure why, "I just wanted to make sure you're okay, and figured you could use a friend. " "I'll have whatever you're having." Kara shrugged, taking a seat on the couch. "It's like I'm somebody else." Kara said softly, "The best version of myself." "I get that." Clark said softly, "And if you think this woman can love more than just the symbol on your chest, that if you want it there as a sort of training wheel, or if you just want to feel brave, I get that too." "See, this is why I came to you instead of Alex or Maggie." Kara smiled, then added before he could continue, "And I know, I need to be careful, and not let things go too far without telling her the truth." Clark smiled, "I just want you to be careful." "I know." Kara smiled back, giving him another hug.That meant going to her after a traumatic experience, like almost falling to her death, which was why it broke Kara's heart to find her friend surprised to see her when she opened the door."Kara." Lena beamed, stepping aside so her friend could enter, "What a wonderful surprise." "Supergirl told me what happened. " Kara asked as she took the silent invitation to come inside the apartment. I feel like I don't know anything anymore." There was another long pause and then Clark cautiously added, "That's why you want to go, right?" Lena smiled, although it faded a bit when she added, "Is that a problem? " Lena smiled again, and before taking another sip of her wine quipped, "I take it you didn't see the pictures." "Pictures! I thought, wow, amazing, I finally have a best friend who isn't my sister. And the last thing I want to do is rain on her parade, but I miss her, then all of a sudden this other person comes along.
Quickly realising she couldn't go on like this Kara texted her baby cousin, asking him to meet her at the Fortress of Solitude. Then he arrived, in more or less the same costume she proudly wore, except bigger and without the skirt, Superman greeting her with a warm smile and hug, the latter of which would have probably crushed a human. I'm just so grateful that she has people like you in her life that can truly be there for her. But you know that in your heart, he doesn't really know you. People see these symbols on our chests and they think we have all the answers, when we don't. And I don't want to tell you what you should do, or be patronising or condescending, but I think you came to me because you know this is wrong, and you wanted to hear me say it." "I know." Kara said softly, adding without thinking, "It's just, I... I'd like to be one of those people, and honestly, I'd like to be more. I'd like to show her how grateful I am for everything she's done for me, and everyone. And what you're talking about, it's worse than dating you as Kara, because he isn't dating the real you. I don't know, I'm probably flattering myself, but the way she looks at me, it's almost like she cares about me. "I know." Lena smiled softly, cautiously leaning forward to place her hand upon Kara's and squeeze it gently, "It's pretty much just you and her." There was a long pause and then Kara asked, "Isn't there anyone else? " "No." Lena said flatly, taking her hand back, "I told you, the list starts with you and ends with her." This really knocked Kara loopy, even after she realised exactly what her friend meant, "I, I mean there must be someone else you want to date." "No one that's available." Lena said softly, then stared directly at Kara for a few long seconds before lowering her head, "I know it's crazy, but... There was then a long pause and then he added, "Go on your date." "What?
