“Hey, you okay?” You stared at the Daxamite, he looked at you the smile not quite reacting his eyes. You knew Kara and everyone at the DEO were doing their best to help him learn about Earth but from experience, you understood how overwhelming the whole thing could be.
“It’s just, it’s all different. I’m not used to this.”
“I get that. Here. Come with me.” You held an arm out to him, he took your hand, curiosity getting the better of him. “Where are we going?”
“Just shhh, you’ll see.” You got in your car, driving aimlessly for a while, away from the city. It’s something you always did when life got to be too much. When all you could see was the distant lights of National city behind you, you parked. Looking out onto a barren field that stretched on for miles.
“You’re uh, you’re not gonna kill me or something right?” Mon-el joked.
“Oh yeah, definitely, brought you out here to hide the body. Just come on.” He followed you out of the car, walking until you placed yourself on a patch of grass and weeds. Mon-el drifted down to sit beside you, watching as you laid back and let your eyes fall onto the skies above. The sun was just setting and the first flicker of stars could be seen overheard. “I come here sometimes, when I need to breathe or get away. It’s easy to forget that we all need breaks, even you Mon-el.” He stared at you, an appreciative smile settled on his face.
In the next moment, he laid down beside you, an arm resting under his head, his head turned towards you. “Thank you, for this.”
“Anytime, you don’t need to wear yourself out trying to figure this all out at once, just so you know. It all gets easier eventually but that comes with time.”
