She couldn’t figure him out. Wynn was her best friend, and had been for years, yet still, sometimes, he remained a mystery to her. She hadn’t realized that his love had gone beyond friendship for years, and when she had, and they’d tried to act on their mutual, sexual appreciation of each other, things just hadn’t worked out. Secretly, she knew that it was because she was still afraid of losing him as a friend, but she couldn’t understand why he hadn’t pushed the matter further.
In a moment of weakness, after all, she had kissed him. It could have led to so much more. He hadn’t had to let her off easily any more than Jimmy had, but they had. Kara stared at Wynn now as he explained the latest scientific gadget she was supposed to use on her next mission, not really hearing his words as she watched him with a puzzled look on her face. No matter how hard she tried, she still didn’t understand it.
Wynn waited patiently until Kara turned and left. Only then did he allow himself to glance in her direction with a heartfelt sigh. He knew she was confused, but the simple fact was he couldn’t risk losing her, even if it meant letting go forever of his crush and most cherished dream. It was better to have her as a friend than to lose her completely. He called up his alien girlfriend and set a date, eager to see her again and remind himself that there were other wonderful women in his life besides Supergirl, even if he’d never love another as much as he loved Kara.
