It made Kara feel sad, and even more determined to be the best friend she could possibly be to this wonderful but universally misjudged woman who returned holding a couple of wine glasses, no doubt filled with something expensive. there was something I've been meaning to ask you." Lena confessed hesitantly. " Kara asked, "You can tell me anything, you know that, right? And it's scary, and there are risks, and it might not work, it might not be anything, but... Not that it really helped, because Lena texted back immediately, thanking Kara and promising to tell her all about it, causing Kara to smile nervously and then continued to debate this decision throughout the rest of the day.

Either way even though her friend owned the whole building, and this was a luxurious suite on the very top floor, Kara couldn't help think Lena deserved more than this.

Of course for all her wealth Lena Luthor deserved a lot more than what she had, and Kara was happy to finally give her the friend she deserved.

And even if I'm not her type or whatever, I just like to get to know her. I'm not proposing here, I just want one night to see if there could be anything between us. Well, that and it would be super awkward." Also, because they were closer to her than Clark was they would probably figure out who Kara was talking about, and they both had made it perfectly clear how they felt about Lena, especially Alex.

Even if it's just friendship." Kara really, really wasn't sure what to say, but as soon as Lena began looking disappointed Kara found herself softly murmuring, "Okay." Yet another pause, this one brief, and then Lena asked with a smile, "Are you sure? Heck, she didn't approve of her friendship with Lena, so there was no way she could be impartial about this. What if that jeopardises your secret, and the people in your life?

I have so many questions, and I know you can't answer them all, which is why normally I wouldn't ask, but... " "Erm, yeah." Kara said weakly, because it was true, she would tell anyone who would listen about Lena. "Great things." Kara replied with a smile, and without thinking because again it was true. That I, that I just want to properly thank her for everything she's done for me. Just, just tell her I want to see her, and I'll do the rest." There was another long pause, the longest yet, this time thoughts racing through Kara's head so fast she could barely comprehend them, then she mumbled, "Why, why her? Most people wouldn't touch a Luther with a 10 foot pole, but she seems...

"Wow." Lena murmured, biting her lip for a few long seconds before adding, "Do you think she likes girls? I..." Kara stammered, her mind completely blank and unsure what to say, but Lena's face was falling and she couldn't bare that look so she replied, "I don't know." There was a long pause and then Lena asked, "Well, do you think you could get in contact with her for me. different." Lena said softly, adding with a laugh, "And... I can count on one hand the number of people who've ever looked at me like that." "I do." Kara said softly.

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.

No one should be alone after something like that." Lena just stared at Kara for a few long seconds and then asked, "What did I do to deserve you? I..." Kara blushed slightly, unsure why, "What are friends for? There was then a few minutes where Lena left Kara to her thoughts, and she once again thought how for all it's size this place was very cold and unloved, not unlike Lena herself. Yet another pause, and then Clark pulled back and asked, "And seriously, who the hell is Maggie?

" "I suppose." Lena said flatly, slowly leading them further into the apartment before asking, "Can I get you anything? Even Cat Grant's larger home had been more welcoming and lived in than this on the few occasions that Kara had seen it. It was somewhere a workaholic slept during the few hours they weren't in the office. " "I, erm..." Kara stammered, before backing away as this wasn't her secret to tell, "Seriously, talk to Alex." Clark frowned as he watched his cousin fly away, then reached into his suit, pulled out his phone and called the other Danvers sister, "Hey Alex! " * Even after talking to her cousin Kara still debated what she should do, spending the better part of another day being distracted before ultimately texting Lena that Supergirl would come and talk with her tonight in her office.
