She can't go anywhere else. It's too late at night and the kids are sleeping and she can't go to Cole like this and she wanted to go to James with this because she knows he'd let her go off the deep end. He'd let her break. He's been waiting for her to break for years. And maybe that's why she presses Clark's number and not James'. Or maybe it's because her finger slips off of James' speed dial. Either way, there she is, outside the door.

She tries to make a fist to knock, but her knuckles are bruised and her swollen fingers won't close. So she whispers, "Clark," knowing that he'll hear her.

Clark is awake at once, and quickly looks around the room. April is sleeping at his side, and the children slumber in their own shared bedroom. Shelby doesn't move, but Ree looks up at him as she hears him stir, wagging her tail tentatively.

"Shh, go back to sleep, girl," Clark whispers, getting out of bed. He's already working on trying to pinpoint what he heard. It clearly wasn't from inside the apartment...

There. Breathing at the door. And a quick check through the wall confirms her identity. He heads to the door and opens it. "Victor..." She doesn't look the greatest.

kalel_ofkrypton: (Can you run that by me again?)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
"It's fine, don't worry about it," Clark says, taking a step backward in a subtle invitation for her to come inside. "Uh... can I get you anything?"

((Did I goof re: April?))

From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
"Let me help you with that," Clark offers. He can see she's having difficulty, and there's a lot of gear to carry.

"I can make coffee if you want." She's not well known for liking alcohol, so he doesn't assume that's what she means.

"A bit." He doesn't miss her hesitation. But really, he doesn't think she should be drinking like that. So once he's sure she's seated on the couch, he puts on a pot of coffee.

kalel_ofkrypton: (Extreme worry)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
It's hard to watch her like this, but he knows all he can do is listen and talk to her. "From what I've heard, you have a right to be."

"You might not care, but I do," he replies. He's really worried about her.

"It won't fix anything," he tells her, hoping to get through to her. "I know what it's like. I've been there before. But all it does is put it off. It won't make it any easier to deal with."

kalel_ofkrypton: (I don't understand)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
"You hate being helpless." He understands this, too.

She doesn't want to listen to reason, to why it would benefit her not to get drunk. So he appeals to her sense of caring about others. It might be a little bit of a low blow, but he doesn't know what else to do. "Because it'll hurt me to see you like that."

Date: 2014-09-23 01:02 am (UTC)
kalel_ofkrypton: (Sheepish apology)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
He didn't really expect that she wouldn't call him out on it. But it's kind of frightening to see her just... shut off. "It's still true." One last point, maybe. "Besides... we don't keep alcohol in the house. I can't get drunk and neither can April."

Date: 2014-09-23 01:16 am (UTC)
kalel_ofkrypton: (Yeah okay)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
Well that's... at least slightly reassuring. "We do, however, have coffee," Clark says. The coffeemaker is likely done percolating by now, so he fetches two mugs.

kalel_ofkrypton: (Frowny face Kent)
From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
"You did nothing wrong," Clark insists. He doesn't force her to take one of the mugs, just sets it down in easy reach. "They didn't give you a chance to even ask."

From: [personal profile] kalel_ofkrypton
"Absolutely. That's what a favor is. Otherwise it's just a gift... or payment, I guess, if you did something for them." Clark holds his own mug and takes a sip.
