1 Work in Jonathan Kent & Bruce Wayne
17 Oct 2018
Bruce quietly breaks down in the Kents' bathroom in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner, and Clark comes to talk.
Bruce didn’t like many people, but he liked the Kents. With them, he was able to be himself, and, so far from Gotham, he had no reason to be anyone else. There were no secrets at the Kent farm. There was no need for secrets.
Except today, he was holding tight to one secret that he couldn’t speak. And it was like a fog, transforming a warm sunny day into a swamp.
The Kents were warm, and sweet, and comforting. The air was full of pumpkin pie spice and stuffing herbs and gravy.
And Bruce was choking on it.
But he couldn’t tell them that.
Not now, when they were sitting down around a table draped with an orange-and-brown-leafed cloth, and Clark was passing Bruce an orange casserole dish full of something that perhaps was once a healthy side of green beans, but had been transformed into a cardiologist’s nightmare.
