Guess who just had a fucking heart attack when, at midnight on a moonless night with a flashlight that barely fucking works and functionally zero street lighting whatsoever, she realized the a/c guy forgot to close the yard gate ONLY AFTER MINA HAD ALREADY SILENTLY DISAPPEARED THROUGH IT.
Jesus wept am I glad I’ve done some work with her being off-leash in our driveway and kept up her understanding of basic commands. Including “come”, which I have never had to use in an “emergency” GET YOUR ASS HERE RIGHT NOW situation (but delivered in a calm, friendly voice despite my rising panic, go me). Fuck though, worked like a charm as she bounded over with tail wagging and a complete lack of regard for the adrenaline coursing through my veins.
WE CAME INSIDE FIVE MINUTES AGO AND MY HEART IS STILL POUNDING IN MY CHEST
Supercorp AU where Krypton never exploded but Kara & Lena still meet & fall in love anyways. Whether Kara still ends coming to earth or Lena goes to Krypton.
It was the squint of light that finally reached her eyes that woke her, though she battled it tiredly, digging her head into her pillow. The long night mingled in her bones, making itself nice and cozy in the sheets of the bed, tangling up in her limbs and keeping her disinterested in leaving. Until she remembered.
