Now on to today’s installment:
Taking a sip of her tea, Kara waded through her research into the Alien Amnesty Act. Her dealings with Mon-El, if nothing else, had given her some more insight into why humans might feel so reluctant to embrace every ungrateful alien who fell to Earth. If he’d been her first impression of humans, she might never have stayed. Growing increasingly annoyed, Kara forced him from her mind.
Snapper had no idea Cat had given Kara an office, one she’d insisted Kara keep after she’d made the choice to become a reporter. Maybe Cat was being kind, leaving Kara one last parting gift with the space, or maybe it amused Cat to know Kara was pulling one over on Snapper since he wouldn’t even let her have a chair. Either way, settling into her secret office made Kara feel closer to Cat somehow.
Out of habit, she clicked her CatCo news tracker to see if her former boss was making any headlines today. Kara missed knowing everything Cat was up to before Cat even knew herself. Her work calendar was blank now, Eve having cancelled all her CEO meetings and trips with immediate effect. All the new articles that cropped up were paparazzi fodder and content generators. Kara barely skimmed them, the pictures too distant and grainy to tell much. Only on the last one did she notice the location. Kahului, Hawaii. Weird. Cat was the only person Kara had ever met who hated Hawaii, and not for a sensible reason like how many damn sharks were in the ocean around the place.
