[QUOTE]It should have been explosive.
She had abandoned him, and she had taken the choice out of his hands when she went and erased herself from the world. But the day of the reckoning came and she had walked back into her life like she had no care in the world.
Instead of the pent up fury he had nursed for the weeks since he had accepted that she had left on her own, that night when Oliver saw her, he was frozen where he stood[/QUOTE]
I love the language of this opening. The way that you show how the world felt wrong to him, how nothing went according to plan. It set a great tone. And their the possessive nouns that he has to change ('theirs' to 'his', singular). So sad. So telling.
Instead of being explosive, it was so much better:
[QUOTE]When she answered, her voice—now only familiar from recollections he gathered and squirreled away in a tiny corner of his mind—sent a lick of flame in the bottom of his spine, drew cold diagrams on the skin of his neck. It was half of a sob, half of a confession. "No matter how it seemed, you have to know that it wasn't ever by choice."[/QUOTE]
I want to know everything.
(side note: I love that this second chapter was rooted in the reality that we know; giving us a place to stand after the confusing first chapter)
[QUOTE]"I missed your touch," he told her.
And it was undoubtedly the biggest understatement in the world, because there were nights when he wondered if there was technology in the world powerful enough to sear off memories so he could live his life again.[/QUOTE]
So sad. So much longing.
[QUOTE]"I stayed awake at night dreaming of this," she confessed.
He whispered into her ear, "I never forgot."[/QUOTE]
And I love the twist you gave, that she really couldn't come back. That despite it being the best night of her life, too, it was selish. It was wrong.
[quote]"We were living on borrowed time, Ollie. Ever since the exchange, ever since they took you, it was either you or me."
"Then it should be me!"[/quote]
so, so sad.
Wow. Just the entire exchange about fate and heroes was beautiful. About hating the word fate when Clark used it, about the unspoken fear he had of what Chloe had seen.
[QUOTE]"And you're still my hero."
He hated that word too. He liked it up until now. Right now when she used it he could feel how utterly inferior he was to what a hero was supposed to be.[/QUOTE]
He's there, unwilling to watch her go, and she's there to say goodbye. To give him some peace in the world. And you explained the arrow image from the last chapter. Nice.
And then you effortlessly flowed into the future, bringing Zantana back, showing us the mansion, giving us time to recover. Well played. Can't wait to read more!

This is so intriguing! I love that you're just giving us pieces, hints-nightmares and half-finished conversations, a whisper about a debt owed and respect earned. You trust your readers to catch up, and it's really refreshing. I love the quick way your shown the way the world was different-Clark thinking that she had chosen Lex was just a sentence long, but that way enough. The implications were inherent. Excited to keep reading.

I haven't said yet how much I love these poems you include at the beginning of the chapters. I'll have to find some more by this poet because they are really beautiful lines. They tie in very nicely to the chapters as well.
