    Beyond futuristic wars and expeditions at the stars, lied the simple truth of Kal-L wanting to rediscover his identity and restore his shuttered connection with the world around him. He had seen and done new things and explored his inner limits, but the fact remained that he had responsibilities to address back on the ground, that he could not run away from forever. Nor did he really wanted to run away from Wanda, but from all the over complications, obstacles, strange glances and hidden truths that were a part of their life for some time now.

    He was not sure what he would find upon his return, but he had idealistic and positive dreams about things calming and reminding him of their better days of the past, before he had to suffer a death and an even more painful resurrection.

    They had been problems back then too, but they always found a way to overcome them together. They had never lasted for what felt like a lengthy amount of time, where the days passed without brightening for more than a fleeting, shining moment of happiness and then settling on dull greys.

    But still, he hoped. He had not contacted Wanda, aiming to surprise her by arriving late and finding her at the farm. As he passed through night birds though, high in the dark sky, he could not resist but focus his vision on the ground, past the trees and the spare buildings of Sosamma Road. He found the farm, his sight passing though the animals resting in their homes, aside from Marta and Pushi, that were playing outside. Then it went through bricks and stone, with the sole purpose of finding Wanda.

    But she was nowhere.

    And there was someone else his blue eyes were staring at, that was the last person he expected to find. Kal stopped mid air, shocked, distressed and immediately feeling the need to defend himself. That lasted for a few seconds, then anger rose inside him, travelling in every part of his body. His eyebrows knitted together, his lips pressed into a straight line. His fingers clenched into fists.

    Minutes after, he landed outside the door. Without thinking much and hoping he was seeing hallucinations, he marched to the door and pushed it, barely managing to apply the right amount of force that would not break it.

    'Wanda!' he called out, even though he knew someone else would answer.

    Thor had been staying at the farm for over a month now. Part of him was embarrassed he was still here after so long, but another part of him was grateful he had been given the chance to come to terms with everything in his own time. Sorting through all his feelings, feelings he didn’t really know what to put a name to half the time.

    He helped quite a bit around the farm, such as doing chores and the like to earn his keep. It came as no surprise that the sheep — the Wooloos and Mareeps, as they were called — were some of his favorite animals there. Wooloos were soft enough that their wool felt as light and fluffy as cotton candy when you pressed your face against it. Mareeps were just as soft, but also shot miniature lightning bolts whenever they romped around in the fields. They’d been especially pleased to meet him, getting such a thrill out of his own lightning displays.

    But most of his time was admittedly spent gaming. There was just something pleasantly mindless about losing yourself in a game and its story, trying to figure out how best to proceed and what tactics would lead you to the best victory. He was getting pretty good at it, if he did say so himself. Fingers flying over the controller, reflexes kicking in when needed.

    Such was Thor’s focus on the game at hand, he didn’t realize someone had entered the farmhouse until he heard a voice calling out for Wanda. “She’s not here!” he shouted, eye still glued to the screen. She’d recently become the Head of Schola Praeditos, following the Headmaster’s murder. A grisly event, but the school had been in need of guidance and honestly? It would be good for Wanda to do something other than wait around for Kal to come back home.

    Speaking of Kal...

    “Kal, is that you?” he shouted again, finally registering his voice. “It’s Thor! In the guest room!” He didn’t get up, just kept mashing the buttons, trying to take down the group of monsters that had pounced him before they killed him, so that he could save the game and catch up with Kal.

    Completely and utterly unsuspecting of what was to come.

    At the sound of Thor's voice, speaking about Wanda, Kal felt his entire body rising in temperature, as if he was a boiler about to overheat. His hands had begun to shake, his teeth were gritted together in an expression of anger. In the past, he had learnt the importance of controlling those feelings, suppressing them, making them go away, so that he did not risk causing damage. He was not quick to anger, nor did he had a scary temper, then, but when he bottled down his emotions for as long as he had, there was nothing to control anymore. There were no bandages strong enough for wounds that have festered and spread and caused everyday pain.

    He marched towards the room the sounds were coming from. Sounds of violence and playing games, which he guessed was appropriate for the man he was dealing with. Someone who did not care about the consequences of his actions. Someone who lived for those glorious, intense moments of the present, damning the future. Damning Kal's whole life.

    He pushed the door and it busted open, smashing with enough force onto the wall to form tiny cracks. Seeing Thor playing his electronic games, with Wanda absent only further fueled his rage. 'Where is Wanda?!' he demanded, trying to keep his mind from imagining the worst, but he could not help the flow of dreadful scenarios. That she betrayed him with Thor. That Thor had hurt her in another one of his accidents. That she had gone away with her family.

    'Why are you here?!' he shouted next, breathing heavily. The sounds from the game felt as if they were drilling in his skull.

    Thor barely noticed Kal’s heavy footfalls, so caught up with trying to survive as he was, but when the door burst open and swung on his hinges, he couldn’t help but jump, fingers slipping on the controls.

    And the enemy surrounded him.

    “Shit, shit, shit,” he hissed, trying to dodge the incoming attacks with a flurry of button mashing. Again, he was a little slow with registering what Kal was saying, torn as his concentration was.

    “She’s at Schola Praeditos at this time of day,” he replied, then shot Kal a concerned glance at his raised tone, and at his next words that sounded an awful lot like he had absolutely no idea why Thor was even here in the first place.

    “I was... invited?” he said slowly, finally felling the last adversary. His health was low, dangerously low, but at least he’d survived. Now he could afford to give Kal his full attention, and he did so with raised eyebrows. “Did Wanda not tell you?” Then he started at Kal a little better, eyebrows furrowing. “Are you all right?”

    A combination of Thor acting like he belonged in this house, playing his games without a care for him and Kal not understanding what did Wanda had to do with a name of a location he had heard only in passing, left him shaking. Everything that came after, only further fueled with rage, that threatened to consume him entirely. His expression was one of the utmost confusion when Thor first begun to speak, that twisted into something darker as he continued.

    Eyebrows knitted together, eyes narrowed and barely managing to not spark red, he made one step towards Thor and stopped, struggling with holding his violent urges back or showing him a piece of his mind. 'No, apparently, I don't know anything! Not about any places she is supposed to be or why she invited you to stay in her house!' he shouted. 'But you know it all, don't you Thor? You know everything and do as you please!' he continued, the volume of his voice rising with every word spoken. 'You have some nerve, coming here after what you did...' he added, but his voice died, the words suffocating amidst his spiralling emotions. He looked about ready to attack the other, but he was trying to control himself. In a moment where his emotions lost the battle with his mind, his eyes sparked crimson and he directed the beams way on his left, managing to avoid hurting him.

    His gaming console was not as fortunate though and the television screen suddenly went black, leaving the room in unnerving silence. After a few seconds, Kal's eyes returned to their normal blue after the beams emitted from them had melted the gaming console. The smell of plastic filled the air, but that was the last thing on his mind.

    'I can do the same to you.' Kal spoke grimly, not a hint of pride in his voice, or malicious enjoyment. Thor would not like those words, of course. And while he could not take all the credit for the monster Kal considered himself to be, he had certainly made a generous contribution. To him, it was as unimportant as what he had for breakfast, Kal reckoned, or else he would not have found him in the state that he had.

    'Get out.' he uttered simply and much more calmly than all his previous words spoken to Thor that day, placing his hands on his face, waiting for Thor to be gone without a fight, conflicted about whether he wanted to take out all his justified pain on him or not, permanently afraid of what he had been transformed into.
