Watching her laugh like that brightened his own face. He did that. He made her react that way and it made him feel so warm inside to see her that happy. That feeling was something he wanted to hold onto forever. He'd never felt the way he did with her with anyone else. He had been in a relationship before yes, but with Allana when he was with her it was like fire and ice. If not for her in his life he didn't know if he would be able to handle a place like Apocalypse Kansas. She brought out the best in him.
Whenever he didn't know something, she was always right there with the answers. Between the snark and the exploration they balanced each other nicely which was ironic. She was from another universe bread to be royal, he was from nowheresville Kansas, created in a lab to become a weapon of destruction. Somehow they just worked. He didn't feel like he had to be anyone but himself around her. No showy airs or false perceptions, just Conner Kent. Kon-El. Kon-El was even better. He'd always hated his civilian name. Nothing was wrong with the Kent part, but Conner? It just sounded so plain. So human. He wasn't human. He was okay with that. Almost proud of it. A few months ago he wouldn't have been able to think it much less say it but they'd been through a lot.
He saw her look away from him and raised one of his eyebrows. "Uhh, you okay? I thought you said this show sucks. You're making a face." Part of him was certain she'd wanted him to say those three magical words I love you but the other was conflicted. So many relationships just went south after that part happened, he didn't want anything to change between them.
"Not the sidekick, I think you're confused." He grinned and changed the subject. "That tv is rotting your brain. Gonna be a zombie soon." He laughed and leaned back, yawning then and rubbing his eyes.
"Monday should be illegal." He said with a small stretch of his arms.
