“Sometimes I think it would be easier if you were here.”
“Not a day goes by, Clark, when I don’t regret not being able to be right here for you. I would do anything, I would give anything to able to get a second chance to get it right. You got that second chance, son. You could be the greatest hero the world has ever known.”

“I think that, all
things considered, we’re pretty lucky,” Kon began. “For this
family I mean.”
Chris pushed his
glasses up his nose and grinned at his brother. They hadn’t all been
a family as long as some others, but Kon was right… they were
lucky. As a Kent, Chris felt accepted and he felt loved. He felt
like he mattered. He couldn’t quite express how much he appreciated
that in words, how he really was eternally grateful for his family,
but somehow, looking at Kon, he knew he got it too.
So, like any good
brother, he simply said, “You’re a dork.”
Jon giggled joyfully
from his seat on the floor. The three of them were having a
brothers’ night, watching movies and playing video games and eating

Kon pulled Jon into

gonna team up against you and….” And as his words trailed off, he
began to tickle Jon’s ribs mercilessly. Jon, who was incredibly
ticklish, howled and shrieked with laughter, and Chris couldn’t
resist tickling his other side. Things were so fun and great when
they were all together like this… and teaming up with one brother
to torture the other was definitely his favorite part of being a part
of a family.
begged for mercy, and Kon instantly left him alone and let him sit
up. But like everyone else in their family, Jon was affectionate and
continued to sit in Kon’s lap. Kon wrapped his arms around the
little one and said, “see, this is what I mean.”
Chris smiled and
snuggled a little closer. “We’re so lucky.”
The brothers all
settled down together and enjoyed their shared number one favorite
activity – family cuddles.
Clark has an entire room in the Fortress of Solitude dedicated to keeping every letter every child in the world sends him. Half of them are thanking him for being their hero. Half of them are asking why he didn’t come when they needed him.
