“I brought Big Belly Burger!” Kara exclaimed from the open terrace door. Lena glanced back inwards to see her best friend lifting a paper bag excitedly.
And Lena might have smiled back if Kara weren’t again blowing her own identity.
“I didn’t know you wore contacts,” Lena lied.
She watched Kara’s eyes bulge and her free hand plunge into her purse in frantic search for her resin-rimmed facade. She turned away from Lena like it had any impact whatsoever on Lena having seen Supergirl’s face in Kara Danver’s clothes.
Lena Luthor has HAD IT with Kara Danvers aka Supergirl aka the worst secret identity haver in the entire universe.
“My poor darling,” Lena says, teases. “Do you just go around licking anyone that smells like fruit?”
“No, I—I. Um.” Quiet. A steadying breath. “Now you’re just teasing me,” Kara murmurs, a dusting of red high on her cheeks. Lena’s delighted.
“First, you come into my home unexpectedly,” Lena says, and Kara whispers-justifies a quiet yeah, to cuddle, “and now you lick my neck. What’s next?”
Or, here's the thing: Lena has been in love with Kara for a long time. If Kara knows, then Kara doesn’t seem to mind.

A muted murmur of joyful voices paused. Then the door unlatched, and opened a crack, and Harrowhark Nonagesimus peeked out. She was heavily veiled, but unpainted. Beneath the dark lace, her high cheekbones were flushed more pleasantly than Gideon had ever seen. But the rest of her face quickly washed with a startled shock.
Harrow said, bewildered, “But - you already came back...”
Panicked, Gideon pushed the door open.
There, strapped with her lost rapier, banded with her missing knuckle knives, and wearing her fucking sunglasses, stood an identical Gideon Nav.
