She knew there wasn’t a ‘maybe, someday’ for her. She would never see the world through Clark’s eyes and even if the random chance of a lightning strike should happen, even with his abilities she could never view the world just as he saw it. All her truths would remain truth and she’d never have that which makes him the most unique observer. Her truths were simple and as simple as anyone on the planet could boast save for Clark and Kara—Chloe was human. That simple truth came with it a family of six billion brothers and sisters to share in the human experience. Until she could divorce herself of this massive kinship, she would never see the Earth through those eyes that had been opened to an entire universe beyond. This planet was her home, this population was her people. She walked side by side with every last one of them. Clark, though raised shoulder to shoulder with those of his adopted family, soon found that he was painfully unlike the rest. His differences did not manifest facially but still physically all the same and so uniquely that he was undeniably a stranger. The boy who had been raised within the comfy confines of this place discovered that he was a transplant, maple leaves on an oak tree destined to produce very different things.Read more... )

The look in her eyes couldn’t be mistaken and instead of dealing with what he saw there, he turned away from her and once again sought the kind of escape that only the stars could provide. He remembered the time, not too long ago, when his eyes needed the help of a telescope to see the sky in all its grandeur. Time changed and his abilities evolved to the point that now when he looked to the stars he chose to view them very differently. The tiny twinkling that marked the human experience was not the same experience for Clark anymore. Stars were now large, massive floating bodies that overwhelmed the horizon, magnified to such magnificent proportions that the sight never failed to fill him with pure childlike wonder. This was the only place on Earth where he could ignore the responsibilities of his birth and exile and once again have something that was all his and all beautiful at the same time. Out here, on this field, he lived on a plateau that reached millions of miles off the surface of the planet and brought him up, side by side with the galaxy.Read more... )

Up. He was looking up and she’d been right but rejoicing over some small detail like that wasn’t exactly how she felt in seeing it. Seeing Clark, yet again, escape ‘down here’ for ‘up there’ was something Chloe never could get used to. Before she knew the secret of his origins, Chloe had always viewed Clark’s stargazing as a childhood hobby that had bled into adolescence. It wasn’t giving any particular weight at all; now knowing who he was and where he came from, she understood that the day could one day come where he may forever disappear ‘up there’. The thought would always twist her around just enough to ensure she never forgot just how much his simple presence meant to her.Read more... )

“He won’t talk to me,” Kara said, staring out across the fields to the solitary figure of her cousin. Chloe sat next to her on the dry wooden posts of an old fence.Read more... )
