Good to know. I’m doing great. Fantastic. Really good… working on my powers and stuff… maybe I’ll fly one day.
I know you will. I mean, you’re still figuring your powers out… You’ve got lots of unused potential, you know? It’ll happen.
-turns towards her- you think? I guess. Lex’s shields proved to me that while I may have the genetic material for all my Kryptonian powers, I won’t be able to achieve them all. I guess I’m still waiting it out. -nervously laughs when the conversation comes to a halt- Look at me, telling you my problems when we’re not even going out anymore! Hehe
Hey, just because we aren’t going out any more… I’m still your teammate, and your friend, and our relationship still happened. We, uh, we went through a lot together. That doesn’t go away just because we break up. I mean, you’ve been inside my head, and I’ve been in yours before, so… I mean, can’t get much closer than that, right?
Mmmhmm, yeah, that’s pretty close… tch. It doesn’t feel right though. I’m sure you have enough on your plate with your new boyfriend’s thoughts and stuff. Erm, I mean, with Lagoon Boy’s stuff… because Atlantean life is different than ours, erm, the surface world’s.
-a hint of disappointment colors her voice, her eyes flick away and back up at him, then down to the floor again- Yeah… Right.
-he starts getting uncomfortable with the heavy air in the room- Look, M’gann… -reaches out and lets his hand hover over her shoulder before withdrawing it- I made my choice. I don’t think either of us liked it but it’s what’s best for you.
Sure… Um. Yeah.
No, wait— Superboy, how can you say that it’s best for me? What’s best for me isn’t something you decide! I decide what’s best for me! I’m older now and I’ve seen more of Earth and the world at large and I feel like I have the capacity to make my own decisions. I have the maturity to make my own decisions. And, you, saying that it was best for me and that you broke my heart because it was the best thing for me is kind of ridiculous and why didn’t you take into account how I feel about this? Because a relationship is between two people, me and you, and maybe I still have feelings for you—
I— I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that.
