Supergirl flew over the city on the brightest blue sky possible, nothing could upset her that day. For the first time in a really long time, she felt like what her emblem portrayed, she felt hopeful.
"Supergirl, come in” she heard J’onn’s voice on her com.
“What’s the status?” she responded the call.
"There is a fire” Winn intervened.
"The old Cadmus facility” her sister said carefully, that was the very last place Kara wanted to visit.
“Can’t the firemen take care of it?”
"They did” J’onn said in his usually calmed voice.
“Then I don’t get it, what’s going down?”
"The place” Winn said ” it goes down 40 stories, there are many sublevels under that lab, it appears it used to be an underground facility in which they carried experiments.”
"So, we need you to check it out" Alex concluded ”We’ll send a team with you in five minutes"
“Got it” she cut communication before rushing to the place. It wasn’t hard to spot, the smoke was reaching new heights. The firemen were controlling the situation, but Kara didn’t mind helping out, blowing the smoke away and extinguishing the last flames. Then it was crystal clear what Cadmus had tried to cover, it was a pitch black pit going down for almost half a mile.
“I’m going in” Supergirl informed flying all the way down. When she was reaching the very bottom she felt her strength fading “Something is not right” she said into her com, but she was too below the level for her signal to go through.
She slowed down mere floors before reaching her destination to catch her breath. Then she noticed the walls were glowing green.
“Kryptonite” she told herself, there were enormous amounts of it, had they been harvesting it? Had a meteorite been under so many layers of earth and now they were recovering every last piece of it?
She felt sick, she had to leave before she got trapped into that hole. But then she noticed something else.
“A pod?” she used her vision to her greatest extent before noticing the initials ‘Kr’ encrypted into it. “Was there another crash?” she took a deep breath making a jump down the pit. The concentration of that green rock was greater down there. Then it made sense, they weren’t taking the kryptonite out, they had deliberately put it there so whomever was inside the pod couldn’t have the strength to get out, but just who was it?
She grabbed the edge of it and with all her might she tore it open to reveal a young girl. She had a certain resemblance she couldn’t place. She carefully tried to find her pulse right before the girl tiredly opened her eyes to spot her.
“Hey” Kara said soothingly “I’m going to take you out of here, ok? Stay calm”
The girl raised her hand weakly just to point at the symbol on her chest.
“You can trust me” Kara reassured “I’m-”
“Supergirl” the girl said with little voice, looking deep into her eyes. Just another person she knew had ever looked at her that way, with such calmness and blind trust.
“Ye-yeah” Kara felt her strength fading away “Who are you?”
But the girl couldn’t give her an answer, instead her eyelids gave away and she fell into slumber.
“I have to get you out of here” she told herself trying to carry her in arms and jumping one story up before the nasty effects of kryptonite took the hero to her knees.
She could hardly breath with that amount of rock near her, she wandered how the young girl was alive at all.
She looked up at the light when she was about to fade just to see the descent of several agents.
“Kara?” Alex landed next to her “can you hear me? I’ll get you out of here”
And that was the last she distinguished before blacking out.
The next thing she heard, was a machine matching her heart beat. She opened her eyes finding herself back in the DEA, she dazzily sat up before her sister reached her side.
“Hey, how are you feeling?” she tapped her shoulder.
“Better” she answered “That was a lot of Kryptonite, Rao knows how they got it” she pressed her temples before an image crossed her thoughts “The girl!” she jumped out of the bed “where is she? how is she? Who is she?!”
“Easy” Alex slowed her down “She’s with J’onn, her vitals are fine” she bit into her lower lip.
“But?” she looked expectantly “Alex, what aren’t you telling me?”
“We…found something about her, you should probably see her first”
“Is she Kryptonian?”
“It’s a little harder to explain” she said “please, just meet her first” she repeated.
Kara obliged, knowing something was off to be upsetting her sister this much.
Winn was at the entrance of the room where the girl was, as soon as he saw Kara, he stammered as well “H-hey! How are you-?, that-that was a lot of Kryptonite, shouldn’t you be resting a bit longer?” he eyed Alex “she can deal with this later”
“Ok, what’s going on?” Kara cut in.
J’onn stepped outside the room “Ah, Supergirl, you are here, how are you feeling?”
“Good” she cut him short “now, can anyone tell me what this is all about?”
“Please, come in” he opened the door to where the new resident was currently sleeping “She is without a doubt the result of an experiment in Cadmus labs”
“Is she Krytonian?” Kara asked.
“To an extent”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Kara, she is your clone” Alex said.
“What?” she said aback “Haven’t we been over this before?” she folded her arms defensively “plus, she doesn’t even look all that like me, not even at that age”
“We ran her DNA through all our database and she is without a doubt your clone”
“But that’s- we aren’t identical” she repeated
“Well, we did found one other hit in the search, we discovered there was another donor” Winn said slowly for the information to sink in.
“Who’s?” Kara looked around their faces, they all knew, but no one dared to say.
