Just to refresh your memory

The lab coat person lifted up my shirt revealing the mark they talked about.

"So see here, there are two dots, side by side, about the size of bug bites, but fairly distinct. It seems to be a wound, so some sort of weapon must of gone inside her. And judging by the severe bruising on the outside of the dots... this injury is something we need to look into."

"When do you believe this injury occurred?" Alex asks.

"A little close to an hour ago, maybe even less."

"Then it has to have occurred while we were at the abandoned lot." Lena says, turning to Alex.

"The anonymous guy who was striking at you, it has to be him." Alex tells Lena.

"Right... the device he pointed at me! I remember it now, it was gray and had a blue light around it... with two rods attached to it's frontside!"

"That must've been it, but what was it?" Alex questions.

"Wait.. Alex, you said that he pointed this weapon at Lena.. how did I get hit?" I ask.

Lena turned to me, I watched as her eyes nervously looked at mine then looked away.

--

Alex looked worried, but she looked to Lena keeping her composure.

"It's okay, Lena." Alex assured.

"Is it?" Lena says.

"She would've done it for anyone." Mon-el insisted. He looked angry.

"Done what?!" I yelled.

At this point I was annoyed of all the secrecy they led. There were things I wanted... no, needed to know about my own life.

"You saved Lena, Kara." Alex explained.

"What?" I asked.

Suddenly, another woman came in. She was dressed in similar clothing as Alex.

"Maggie!" Alex yelled, running to hug her.

They seemed extra friendly.

"I'm glad you're okay." She turned to everyone else, "I'm glad you're all okay."

"Thanks, Maggs." Winn smiled.

"So what's the situation?" Maggie inquired.

"Kara saved Lena." J'onn interjected. "Long story short, Lena feels guilty, Mon-el is angry, and Kara is well... confused."

"Way to put it all out on the table J'onn." Alex added.

"Keeping things from her will only slow us down." He explained.

He was right.

I deserved to know more.

"I just don't get it." Mon-el said.

"What don't you get?" Alex asked sarcastically.

He scoffed, "Well, why save her?"

Lena began to tear up, as Alex comforted her. I wanted to reach out too, but they had me attached to all sorts of wired on the hospital bed.

"Why not?" I interuppted, "She's my friend."

"We're all your friends," he explained, "so why do you only remember her?"

I rolled my eyes, "This question again, huh?"

"And me? Not only am I your friend... I'm your boyfriend so if you're going to remember anyone it should be me."

"What!? And not her sister?" Alex added.

"Wait-- you're my sister?" I asked, confused.

She nodded.

"Instead of arguing, maybe we should just I don't know... calm down?" Maggie said.

"Maggie's right," I say, "I'm pretty sure I saved Lena because she's my friend and she needed help, it's as simple as that."

"Sure." Alex said.

"Whatever, I'm leaving." And with that, Mon-el stormed out.

J'onn chased after him, I assume to ease the tension.

"Sure?" I say, angrily.

"Alex." Lena mumbled.

Alex sighed, "What?"

"Don't." Lena insisted, looking more worried than ever.

"Look, your secret's safe with us, Lena." Maggie assured, "Right, Alex?"

"Of course."

"Secret?" I ask.

"It's nothing." She responds.

"Of course." I say, angry.

Flashback

--

"Look, like I was saying... you really go the mile when it comes to helping others." Lena continued as she took another sip of her wine.

I smiled and looked back at the fireplace, winter was always my favorite time of the year.

"Well, it's my job. As Supergirl!" I shook my head and chuckled.

She joined me.

"I wish you had told me sooner." She said.

"That I'm Supergirl?"

She nodded.

I furrowed my eyebrows and put my hand up to my face, as though it was a cellphone.

She started to smile, "Don't you dar--

"Hey Lena, it's your best friend calling..." I joked as she laughed and tried pulling my hand away from my face,  "..we should finally go to that kombucha place you keeping talking about... oh and by the way--

"Stop." She smirked.

"I'm Supergirl."

We laughed and drank more wine. Everything was always so light hearted with her, even before she knew about my other life.

"You know,  it's funny."

"What is?" I ask.

"Supergirl saves all these people, you know... but so does Kara."

"What?" I couldn't help but blush, "No I don't."

"Of course you do."

I explain, "Supergirl does all the fighting and saving and... what not."

"Yeah but," Lena looked me straight in the eyes, "You do all the saving."

She continued, "Supergirl may have the cool outfit and does the bad ass fighting and looks good in scars might I add.."

I smiled.

"... but Kara... that's where your true identity lies, isn't it?"

"No one ever looks at it that way, but yeah... yeah it really is."
