Cassandra


Clark perched over the bridge’s railing when Lex finally found him.

Oddly fragile… in Lana’s necklace?

“You should have hit me harder.”

“What?”

“I should have died.”

“Clark?!?”

“Everyone else will. Cassandra showed me.”

“She showed you what, exactly?”

“My hands bloody and gravestones: Chloe’s, Lana’s, Mom’s, Dad’s, Pete’s …”

“Mine?”

“No.” Clark’s head tilted curiously, he paused awkwardly over the rail, then slipped.

Lex grabbed out, but Clark plunged toward the river.

Rushing down the embankment, Lex found Clark at the water’s edge.

“You knew?”

“You don’t have to be Psychic to see.”

Lana’s necklace dangled from his fingertips.
