- Supergirl (TV 2015) (49)
Dragged to a craft festival by her best friend, Lena expects to have an awful time until she finds herself at a stranger's cider stall.
Begrudgingly finding herself charmed by the brewer, Lena takes some drastic measures when trying to flirt, and finds herself caught in a white lie.
Thirteen years into her successful career as a global superstar, Lena Luthor's got a lot of explaining to do. Everyone thinks that they know her, or has an opinion on her life, who's she's dating, what she's wearing, who she's singing about, but the truth is, they don't know her at all.
Following a career of ups and downs, lies and secrecy, and more than her fair share of slanderous comments about her notorious breakup songs about ex-boyfriends, she finally decides to come clean in a tell-all interview with one of the biggest talk show hosts, hoping to clear the air once and for all.
No more secrets, no more lies, even if it costs her the career she's worked so hard to build. She's finally ready to tell the brutal truth about her glamorous and scandalous life, about the ruthless ambition that thrust her to the top of the charts, the friends and enemies she made along the way, and reveal the truth about the love of her life.

“Oh,” Eliza murmured, realisation and no small amount of amusement dawning on her face. She let out a soft chuckle and reached out to gently squeeze Lena’s arm, blue eyes sparkling with laughter. “Oh, honey, no. We both know I’m not your type.”
“Oh, I think you might be,” Lena lightly replied.
Her smile grew strained, almost nervous, and pride bristling slightly. She couldn’t fail at this dare. People usually threw themselves at Lena for the opportunity to give her their number. In part, it might’ve been the fact that she was a billionaire, but she also owned a mirror. It wasn’t like she ever wanted people’s numbers, but it was the simple act of being chased that mattered. For someone like Lena, it was the only time she ever felt wanted.
“I’m old enough to be your mother, dear. You must be around my daughter’s age. You know what, you should get her number! She’s single.”
“You’re a terrible liar, you know. You always were; it’s what made it hurt the most, when I realised that you’d been lying to me the whole time.”
“I’m sorry,” Kara breathlessly apologised, gripping her chest with one hand as she faced the door, her heart aching painfully.
“I missed you.”
Kara clenched her jaw as pain blossomed in her chest, her eyes burning as a pressure built up behind them, and she drew in a deep, shuddering breath, before her shoulders went slack, the breath rushing out of her all at once.
“I missed you too.”
“Stay for a bit, please. We have so much to catch up on.”
“So, where are you going?” Kara asked after a moment.
With a quiet laugh, Lena shrugged, “nowhere. I just don’t want to go home. I thought I’d go for a walk instead.”
A look of understanding dawned on Kara’s face and she chewed thoughtfully on her bottom lip for a moment, a wariness flickering in her blue eyes as she gave Lena a hopeful look. “If you want - only if you want - you could come to my house. We could … hang out.”
“Hang out?” Lena laughed, giving her a bemused look of amusement, “why?”
Shrugging, Kara felt her cheeks redden. “I don’t know, I just- I don’t have any friends, and, well, I think it’d be nice to, you know? To have one. And I thought ... I thought that maybe you might need a friend too.”
