Kon wanted to say something profound. Something comforting, but really he didn't have any way he could possibly make it all better. Sometimes no words were better. He'd have to remember to thank a certain brooding Robin for that advice if he ever got the chance. The look on his face was unnaturally sober compare to the joy it usually held. He didn't know the right way to react or if he had a right to react at all. He didn't remember dying. She did. He didn't want to make it seem as though it were some joke, it would just be heartless. That wasn't the real him.
He wasn't as patient as Clark Kent was, or as wise in any sense of the word but he was passionate and compassionate about the world around him. It was a trait they both shared. To see Allana as upset as she was infront of him because of his own stupidity how could he not reflect the same sadness? He'd caused her pain and he had made it his job to protect her. He was silently conflicted.
Finally he spoke with a strained tone. "I know." His brows furrowed as she closed the distance between them as if bracing for the expected slap. He wouldn't fight back if that's how she felt. He apparently deserved it to some extent. His blue eyes clouded with confusion when she didn't move in to strike him, instead she was suddenly so close he could hear her heart beat. His arms wrapped warmly and comfortingly around her.
"I'm so sorry..I tried to be. He was too strong." It really hurt his pride to say those words out loud. He knew Clark was Superman for a reason while he was Superboy, but he still didn't like losing. Especially when it meant causing someone he loved so much pain. That's when it hit him. He loved her. He knew it wasn't the time to tell her, but holding her again he felt like there was nothing else he wanted to do more. Nothing else existed despite being in public, when he was with her there was very little else that mattered. His hand reached tenderly to brush at her cheek. "I'm here now.." He wanted to tell her he wasn't going anywhere and promise that things would be okay. He knew he couldn't do that after everything that had gone wrong, but being there was all right too.
