“Mon-El has officially asked if he could court me.” Kara fidgeted, pushing her glasses higher nervously.

The silence was deafening. Alex blinked, sure that it was that last shot of whiskey that was still rattling around her belly, causing the burn in her gut. She wished she had another one, that she could swallow down along with her unexpectedly raw feelings.

“So tell him the truth, Kara,” Alex finally spoke, when she could breathe again, meeting Kara’s worried gaze. “Tell him that we are already bonded.”

Chapter One

What a fucked up evening it had been.

Alex Danvers sighed and flicked the light on as she entered her apartment, blinking as her eyes adjusted to the brightness. The friendly game of pool with Maggie Sawyer had turned into drinks, which turned into more drinks and then she was admitting things that she didn’t really want to talk about. Not that that had stopped Maggie from asking.

Dropping her keys on the kitchen island, Alex flopped down onto her grey couch and let herself slide down sideways to rest her head on the seat cushions. Now if only that spinning sensation would stop, all would be right with the world. Despite spilling the beans about Kara being Supergirl, which J’onn was going to kill her for, Maggie had certainly told her share of secrets too, which she could deal with. Mostly. That whole still being in love with her ex-girlfriend back in Gotham City had certainly been the most painful.

A knock at the door pulled her from her thoughts.

“Go away.” Alex mumbled into the sofa cushion underneath her. What the hell time was it anyway? Too late o’clock in the fucking morning to be knocking on her door.

“Alex?” A familiar voice drifted in from the hallway, followed by more hesitant tapping on the door. “It’s me, open the door.” Alex lifted her head and sighed. So much for falling asleep where she lay.

“Hang on.” Alex grumped and forced herself upright. She shuffled to the door, running a hand through her hair and yawning before unlocking and yanking it open to find her sister standing there. “Kara, it’s late. Are you okay?”

“Yeah, I guess.” Kara Danvers offered up a lopsided smile and half shrug, before stepping through into the apartment. Kara glanced around the dark space, as if only just realizing the time and that she maybe should have called first. Still this couldn’t wait until the morning and it wasn’t something she wanted to discuss over the phone. “We need to talk.”

“Ooo-kay.” Alex frowned as she closed the door and flipped all the locks back into place. ‘We need to talk’ never led to good conversations in her experience. She watched as Kara made her way over to her sparsely stocked fridge and pulled out two bottles of water.

“So what’s going on that I need to know?” Alex came from around her kitchen island to meet her, her dark eyes scanning for any injuries or damage. She took one bottle and cracked it open, trying to gauge Kara’s mood.

“I just…I wanted to…” Kara’s eyes began to fill with tears. She didn’t even know where to start or how to explain the overwhelming frustration of what she was feeling. Luckily Alex didn’t even hesitate, putting her water down on the island and pulled Kara close, into a much-needed hug.

“Hey, just take your time, I’m not going anywhere.” Strong arms wrapped around her and Kara let herself sink into the embrace. She buried her nose in Alex’s warmth, snuffling into the dark hair and breathing her in. Alex always felt so good, the scent of her calming her down almost as much as the hug.

“It’s okay, it all just...” Kara smiled into Alex’s shoulder, touched by the obvious concern. “Well, it’s all kind of caught up with me. I didn’t really have a lot of time to process destroying that poor environmentalist.” Kara paused and pulled away, the bitterness of having failed to save the changeling still difficult to swallow. “And then when I was helping Barry and the others off world, I-I…” Kara came to a full stop and just wiped at the gathering tears in her eyes. It was always hard to talk about her Red Kryptonite experience, especially with Alex.

“Damn it, Kara. I knew I should have gone with you.” Alex muttered, finding Kara’s hand and leading her to the couch. They sat together, Alex’s arm sliding across Kara’s narrow shoulders, pulling a snuggly blanket over both of them. Kara sighed and melted closer into the offered comfort. She was glad Alex hadn’t seen her controlled yet again. It had brought all the Red Kryptonite memories rushing back in a horrible wave.

“Tell me what happened in the other universe.” Alex adjusted her tone, sure that something was bothering Kara. She reached out and pulled on long blonde hair, letting it fall through her fingers.

“It was horrible, I couldn’t stop myself, again!” Kara pulled a pillow to her chest and hugged it, remembering being controlled mentally by the aliens, a shiver running down her spine.

“They had Red Kryptonite there?” Alex asked, pinching the bridge of her nose, afraid Kara had to live through that again.

“No, thank Rao. B-but the alien invaders, they were able to telepathically control me and some of the others. We were forced to attack Barry and a few of the team that had stayed behind at STAR Labs. I nearly killed…” Kara’s voice broke and she wiped at her eyes.

“Hey, come on, you’re safe now. No one was killed.” Alex pulled her closer again. “You should have told me about this sooner. I could have cancelled my plans.”

“I wanted to, I was going to see if you wanted to get dinner, but my debrief at the DEO was interrupted by a Supergirl emergency. J’onn said we could just continue tomorrow, and by the time I finally got back, you weren’t answering my texts and Mon-El was at my door. Which y’know is fine, but then…well, ever since then I’ve been trying to talk him out of doing anything. I need some time to get my head together, not jump into something so quickly. However, he is rather stubborn… ” Kara leaned back, shifting away as she babbled nervously, not making a lot of sense.

“Whoa, slow down. What did the frat boy do now?” Alex’s lips pressed together into a thin line of disapproval. The Daxamite was more trouble than he was worth as far as she was concerned. She didn’t understand the soft spot that Kara had for the big dolt.

“Well,” Kara hesitated, not sure how Alex would react. “Before I left with Barry and Cisco, Mon-El…kind of kissed me.” Kara bit her lower lip self-consciously and looked away.

“What!” Alex’s gut dropped, the audacity of the man was unbelievable. Why had Kara not mentioned this development before? She had been so busy keeping Winn and James in line that she missed this completely.

“It was when Eliza was here and Mon-El was so sick and out of it. I didn’t think he remembered, and it wasn’t a big deal or anything so I never mentioned it.” Kara leaned back again. There was a part of her that was flattered by the attention but another, bigger part of her was dreading having to deal with this. “But at my place tonight he admitted that he did remember. And then he said that he wanted to follow protocol, that he should do this right.”

“Do what right?” Alex frowned, not sure what that really meant. Kara sighed and turned to face her.

“Mon-El has officially asked if he could court me.” Kara fidgeted, pushing her glasses higher nervously.

The silence was deafening. Alex blinked, sure that it was that last shot of whiskey that was still rattling around her belly, causing the burn in her gut. She wished she had another one, that she could swallow down along with her unexpectedly raw feelings.

“So tell him the truth, Kara,” Alex finally spoke, when she could breathe again, meeting Kara’s worried gaze. “Tell him that we are already bonded.”
