    Summary

    “So there’s this girl. Hot. Sweet. Ultimate girl-next-door. Every guy who meets her falls in love with her. And THAT's the problem! Since I’ve known her she’s only been single for a few, brief windows of opportunity."

    Mon-El gets a cold beer from under the bar. Brainy waits for him to uncap it, but Mon-El is too intent on telling his story.

    “Freshman year, she was dating this guy Adam. When they broke up, I waited a month, ‘cause I didn’t want to be the rebound guy. But I was too late, and she dated James Olsen all junior year... Well, the next time, I wasn’t fucking around. I only waited A DAY. All she did was go to work, and I was still too late. She’s been dating that William guy for the past 6 months. So I asked her neighbor to call me the second she and William broke up, and her neighbor just called to tell me-"

    Mon-El smiles smugly. “ The window is OPEN, dude. I asked her BFF to take Kara here, so she wouldn’t meet any guys before I got to her.”

    “Is this girl a blonde with glasses? And is her friend Lena Luthor?”

    “Yeah. Why?”

    “They're in the west corner booth. Kissing.”

    “WHAT??”

    Brainy sips his beer serenely. “I believe your window just closed…. Dude.”

    Summary

    Kara has seen Lena in casual clothes. She’s seen her in crewneck sweaters, in jeans, and even with minimal makeup and messy hair. But she’s never seen her in…yoga pants. She’s never had to try to keep her cool while Lena walks towards her in skin-tight black spandex and a loose off-the-shoulder t-shirt, her hair in a messy ponytail and not a stitch of makeup on her face. She looks clean and natural and absolutely, devastatingly beautiful.

    Oh, this was a bad idea.

    OR

    Kara doesn’t technically need to work out. But, spending time with Lena at the gym isn’t all bad. Even if seeing her best friend in spandex workout clothes makes her break a new piece of equipment every week.

    Summary

    “So?” Alex prompts.

    Kara looks up from the styrofoam container, already having broken apart her chopsticks. “So what?”

    “What do you mean so wha—Kara!” Kara freezes, chopsticks hanging in midair clutching a piece of kung pao chicken. There is real frustration and confusion in Alex’s voice. “Imagine my surprise when I sign in at the front desk and the nurse says that my sister-in-law is stable right now. Wanna tell me why you’re playing house to visit your best friend in the hospital?”

    Kara sets the chicken down. “Alex…”

    “Kara, you have ten seconds to explain why the entire staff thinks you and Lena are married and the answer had better not actually involve marriage or I swear to god I’ll…”

    ____________

    In which Kara is a whole entire idiot, Alex is a permanent mood, and Lena is just glad Kara is there for her, as her fake wife, while she recovers from another quarterly attempt on her life.
