It's addicting, not having to hold back anymore. To actually use all of his strength, without worrying about hurting an innocent or a friend, it's something Clark rarely gets to do.

Author's Note: These are the last of the episodic drabbles that I have written at present time, so I'm going to cite this story as complete. However, if I get inspired to write more episodic drabbles, I'll likely put them here as well (it's possible that Divided We Fall might be added). I want to thank everyone who has reviewed! You guys are amazing! :)
