High School Never Ends

A collaboration for @supercatweek

Summary: Cat attends her high school reunion at Kara’s urging and Kara goes along to work at the hotel while Cat meets up with old classmates. But when Kara makes a surprise appearance at the party, a jealous ex saunters over to make things interesting between Cat and Kara.

Cat Grant was three martinis deep at her own high school reunion and she was miserable. This was a perfect, shining example of exactly why she avoided social entanglements like this one.

She was pretty and distracting and always quietly pushing Cat to be nicer, to embrace life, to go to high school reunions just to “revisit the wonderful memories of the past.” That’s how she’d ended up in a shitty Metropolis-suburb hotel on an otherwise perfectly good Saturday night.
