Lois Lane is truly a remarkable woman.
After witnessing a murder and having several attempts made on their life, anyone else would be in hiding.
Not her. No, she’s determined to catch the people responsible.
What is it about Lois Lane? Never have I had to save one person so many times- let alone so many times in just a few months. She’s a magnet for trouble.
Most of the time she doesn’t let it faze her. Strange man dressed in Spandex eats a bomb in front of her? No problem. Rogue government agent throws her out of a plane? Great, here’s her next front page story.
But this story… this story has her scared.
Scared enough to turn up on my doorstep and ask to stay the night. Scared enough to actively seek my protection.
It’s got me scared too. Sitting in a heap on the floor of her apartment after Finn almost killed her, feeling her shake and tremble and beg me not to leave her… it near broke my heart. I just want to keep her safe.
I think it might have been a good thing she asked me to stay. If I had caught Finn… I don’t know what I would’ve done. That in itself scares me a little. I’m used to being in control. I have to be in control. It’s too easy for me to damage everything and everyone around me if I’m not.
I love that she came to me when Trevino threatened her. I love that she feels safe with me. And I’ll always do my best to make sure she’s safe.
But with three attempts on Lois’ life in as many days, the law of averages is catching up, even with me around.
We need to find Trevino, and fast.
