"We didn't lose him because someone can't leap tall buildings right now," Clark replied casually. The every day city chaos had yet to find a way under his bullet proof skin. People milling from one street to another, rushing to tend to their errands, homes, and jobs alike were surprisingly comforting to him. It reminded him of Metropolis. Except it was smaller and filled with demons and fictional characters alike.
Clark put a hand on Lois' shoulder, gently directing her out of the path of a kid who had jumped up onto the sidewalk with a bicycle. With a shake of his head, Clark kept walking, knowing that nothing was going to get between Lois and her shady link to the mayor. She wasn't wrong. As soon as Lois had reeled Clark into her case, he could tell that she had definitely picked up on something that the mayor was trying to keep out of the public eye. Typically, when someone in a power position like that was doing something that they didn't want other people to know about, they were cautious enough to prepare for something that might complicate things. And at this particular moment? Lois Lane was exactly the type of complication the mayor would have been afraid of. Fortunately, with their new-found partnership agreement, Clark was going to make sure that Lois got her story and lived to tell the tale.
Starting with traffic. Clark grabbed at her shoulder again, tugging Lois back before she could go barreling into the street before looking both ways. What? Boy Scout wasn't a title that came lightly. "Easy. I've got eyes on him - don't worry." No, he wasn't bounding over buildings to keep tabs on their target, but that didn't mean that Clark wasn't using any of his abilities. His heightened senses had made it easy enough for Clark to pick the man out of a crowd, even from a long distance. "He's still walking." The street was clear. Clark tilted his head to the side and hit the crosswalk. "C'mon."
