    It was hard to believe Mister 'I will never step foot in Pandora Town' had been there for over two months. He was certain the others expected him to stay in Wayne Manor indefinitely at this point, but Pandora Town was no Gotham with his home's tall skyscrapers and murky air. That he could've lived with, even when accompanied by their awful presences. It wasn't even Cascade Bay with its open jungle and fresh air and Kaldwin's office that had become almost like a game to slip in and out of.

    And so he'd eventually left, just as he was certain they equally expected him to do. The only evidence of his progress was the fact he begrudgingly promised he would return to the Manor eventually to...visit. Ugh. Like a child.

    As Damian was always a fan of doing things the hard way, he'd kept away from the portals in Pandora Town in favor of making the trip home on foot. It wasn't just to be stubborn this time, unlike the trip to Pandora Town before Christmas. He'd heard rumors of a newly upgraded animal farm in the vicinity, and with Titus at his heels, he'd been unable to resist the urge -- and the challenge -- to locate it.

    Rumor also had it that it was owned and operated by a very kind man. As Damian sat in the middle of the barn just as dawn broke, feeding a small goat oats from his hand and petting its tiny head, he was certain that the approaching footsteps meant he was just about to test the kindness. Well, no matter. It wasn't everyday that one found a child in full vigilante costume on their property in the middle of nowhere, but it was also Pandora.

    The farm was the greatest gift anyone has ever given him and he still found himself getting emotional every time he went to see to the animals and do some work. Pandora had never felt like home before, what with its impenetrable walls, unexplained phenomena and tons of superpowered individuals from myriads of worlds, but having a farm of his own was a serious step in building his life here. And as much as he missed his family and friends, he had found a home in Wanda and his pet and human friends in Pandora. The thought of leaving became all the more distant in a place where he had everything he had ever wanted.

    Not that he was not bound by his sense of duty and his compassion of others; the retirement of being Superman did not cross his mind when there was still so much work to be done. But it was good to have a beautiful place that he could retire to and be happy, if he lived in this world long enough. He hoped Wanda would join him too and leave the dreariness of Misty Hollow behind. Not that he hated the place, but living there on a permament basis would be depressing for him. The exciting conveniences of a modern town always seemed to be overshadowed by the ghosts, the demons and the lingering magical energies.

    In his farm, there was peace. At least at first glance, since Superman could hear every little sound, from the hurried baby steps of the chickens to the munching of the cow. Everything seemed to be the same as yesterday, but it did not take long for him to hear another presence, which, judging by the breathing pattern and movements, did not belong to any known animals. Curious and confused, Kal moved fast towards the visitor, only to be greeted by the sight of a young boy feeding Marta. While he had come wearing a lumberjack shirt and plain trousers, the boy was dressed quite colorfully and battle ready too, even if he hid that fact inside a belt that looked eerily familiar.

    'I did not expect to find any visitors so early in the morning.' he said, appearing more bemused than upset at the sight of the little invader. He was much older than him, but he still remembered his own adventures when he was at his age. There weren't really any borders in the collective farm, but even if they were they tended to lose their meaning for a curious superpowered lad. 'I hope you are properly prepared. Today is when the cow should be milked.' he added with a smile. He was naturally curious who this boy was and how had he found himself in the farm, but he did not want to overwhelm him with questions just yet. Plus, he was telling the truth about the cow.

    Damian looked up with an unreadable expression as the man approached, though he didn't look the slightest bit guilty about being caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar...or the literal goat's mouth, as he frowned down at the animal nipping at his thick gloves when there were no more oats left. He waited for a few moments to be told to leave with an arched eyebrow, but when it didn't come, Damian...well, rolled with it.

    What curious kid was going to turn down the chance to see how a cow was milked?

    "Lead the way, farmer," he declared with a proud rise to his chin, his entire demeanor radiating confidence and cockiness. "I'm curious to see how you live." It wasn't as if he'd ever been on a farm before. His studies as a child had been concerned with far greater matters than goats and chickens and ugly flannels.

    He had to suppress a laugh at the boy's demeanor, to avoid offending him, but something told him that he was one of those lads that took life way too seriously. But he did give him a curious look as he raised his eyebrow which was soon replaced by a whimsical smile. He was a cocky one, but he was interested in farming and that was enough for Kal to decide to grant his request regardless. After all, he liked kids so much that it would be hard for him to develop a dislike for one upon meeting.

    'Never been in a farm before, hm?' he asked in his good mannered way as he walked towards the barn and opened its heavy doors. Compared to others, it was a humble building with stacks of hay and a single cow, but by golly, it was the most beautiful cow that Kal had seen in his life. Slick light brown hair coat that reminded him of Wanda's shades, prideful attitude and a slightly conceited look, that was perfectly justified due to her striking looks. This cow knew how precious she was, Kal had concluded, and wore it with pride. 'I lived 18 years on one and I've never seen a more beautiful cow than this girl. Her name is Aphrodite.' he said as he walked over and stroked her with affection. Her response was to turn her head towards him slightly, acknowledging his presence.

    'Now the first thing you have to know is that if the cow doesn't want you to milk her, the chances are you won't. Or it will be an terrible experience for the both of you, leaving you with bad quality of milk.' he said, as he picked up a halter to put around her neck, tying it to the post. 'Come slowly. If you surprise her, she might kick you.' he added with a smile and gestured to the boy, while he walked towards the back of the barn where he kept all the equipment for the job.
