My mother and her sister – my aunt. Just about my day, my job, my friends and family. It’s ...”
“Cathartic,” Lena supplies. Kara was going to say ‘comforting’, but doesn’t correct her. “Sometimes,” Lena whispers, “I talk to Lex.”
(Much later, Kara will think of Lex, still alive, sitting in maximum security, and wonder what Lena meant.)
A lot can happen in the space of a year; Kara and Lena know this better than most.
