    Summary

    That’s when she sees Kara floating gently right outside her window. Lena has time to witness her fly face-first into the impact resistant glass the way disoriented birds sometimes do before darkness returns, dripping with rain.

    “Kara?” Lena rubs at her eyes in disbelief, briefly wondering whether she’s still asleep, or perhaps hallucinating.

    But, once she pulls the window open, Kara gently floats inside, followed by a spray of chilling rain.

    “Kara, are you alright? Is something going on?”

    Summary

    The first time Kara kisses her, it is largely unimportant.

    It happens simply enough: Kara’s mouth pressed to Lena’s cheek mid-pose for the group photo that Nia insists on taking during a particularly rowdy game night. In the grand scale of things, it barely even registers. Kara’s lips are there and gone in the time it takes for an iPhone camera shutter to open and close, and the only lasting reminder of it lives on Nia’s Instagram page, in a world of social media that Lena does not frequent.

    She doesn’t really think about it.
