A/N: I MADE A SLIGHT MISTAKE LAST CHAPTER BY STARTING THE READING ON CHAPTER ONE INSTEAD OF THE PROLOGUE, SO I'VE EDITED IT. ENJOY THE CHAPTER! :D
Prologue- Year: 1987 (On Earth)
"The year I arrived on Earth," Clark murmured, remembering the very few memories he had of that time.
"The best year in my opinion," Lois smiled to which Oliver and Chloe agreed.
The red tinted skies of Krypton was showered with clouds of what seemed like 'golden steam', with mountains going as far as the eye could see. Rao, their native red giant star, hovered peacefully up in the sky as if gazing down on them, directly above the advanced and technological grand capital city of Kandor,
"It sounds like a beautiful planet," Chloe remarked, envisioning Krypton based on the describion of it in her head.
"Too bad we'll never see it," Clark sighed sadly, while Lois held his hand.
"Yeah, too bad," Oliver frowned in agreement with Clark.
where deep inside the city walls, a middle aged woman with long dirty blond hair and an incredible amount of beauty
"Lara," Clark gasped at the mention of his biological mother.
and a man with short dark hair, quite a pale complextion and cold grey eyes
"Zor-El," Clark growled angrily, his hands clenched into tight fists at the mention of his biological uncle.
were both having an important conversation about something personal and what they were going to do next, both however were completely unaware of how important their decision was that would mould the future of countless star systems and civilizations for better or worse.
"Sounds pretty important," Oliver whistled to which Chloe rolled her eyes.
"More like very important, Oliver."
"Lara don't worry we'll get though this eventually," Zor- El said, who was also trying his best efforts not to cry as well.
This confused Clark, as he failed to imagine someone like Zor-El trying not to cry, even if it was his biological uncle from another universe. The other three however, were intrigued by the interaction between Clark's biological mother and uncle.
"I know," she managed to stifle; her face was red and puffy, along with covered almost completely in her tears. "It's just at first, I wanted to get rid of him because of you, but recently, I now see that killing our son won't do anyone any good."
At this, Clark's eyes widened in absolute shock and somewhat disgust as did the other three's once they had caught on.
"Lara... Zor-El," Clark managed to say, but his mind was having difficulty trying to comprehend the two of them having a child together. "H-How?"
"That's just gross," Oliver grimaced. "I mean, even though your biological mother and uncle aren't related by blood; the fact that your biological mother and uncle had sex with each other (Clark shuddered) is just... plain disturbing, y'know?"
"Yeah, I do," Clark said, trying to erase the mental image of Zor-El and Lara 'doing it' from his mind.
"You never know though," Lois began with a look of deep thought on her face. "The kid might not be that bad, if it takes after Lara, instead of Zor-El."
"Let's hope so," Chloe sighed. "For their universe's sake."
"Well, except for Jor-El," he remarked bitterly.
"Jor- El," Lara sighed, wiping some of her tears away with her hand.
She and her husband had been trying to conceive a baby for a very long time. When Lara got pregnant, Jor-El was ecstatic; the only problem was the child wasn't his, but his very own brother's, Zor-El.
Everyone in the room shuddered, as did Clark, who was almost successfully in erasing the mental image of Zor-El and Lara 'doing it' in his mind. Almost.
It had all started one night, when the House of El were having a party and Lara had discovered Zor- El pacing in the city, head facing down and kicking pebbles. She invited him for a couple of drinks out of pity.
While drinking, he offered her a drink that had twenty- four mind control powder in it and later that night, Zor- El tricked Lara into one night of exotic passion.
"Humph, more like rape," Oliver scoffed, glaring at the book.
The consequence was that she fell pregnant the next day and didn't know how to tell Jor-El. Tragedy soon struck as the baby was pronounced still-born.
"So that's why Lara was crying," Chloe murmured sadly, understanding how even Zor-El was trying not to cry.
"It's terrible when you lose your kid," Clark stated understandingly, remembering the 'kids' he had such as Evan.
As both of them were discussing about the baby, a young tall and muscular man with short black hair and a face of action walked into the room, his hands firmly behind his back.
"Face of action?" Lois repeated, trying to remember any kryptonians she had encountered before that matched the description, when it clicked.
At this, Oliver subconsciously rubbed the front of his chest, where the scar that Zod had given him last year was hidden beneath a layer of skin, due to some intensive plastic surgery he had to cover it up.
"Zor-El, it is done."
"What is he talking about?" stammered Lara, her face puzzled.
"I have found a way to save our child and together we can raise him with my knowledge and your bravery," Zor-El said smiling.
(Clark): Maybe this Zor-El is different...
Clark shook his head, for he knew that it was still quite early in the story to make assumptions, because he knew that even if Zor-El seemed better than the Zor-El of this universe, he still tricked Lara into one night of "exotic passion".
Lara looked hesitant, but then the man, General Zod spoke: "Lara, I know what it feels like to lose a child, the feeling is indescribable and heartbreaking to say the least; please, and this is your one and only chance."
"Something isn't right," Chloe noted, shaking her head. "I can feel it."
Lara nodded, a faint smile appearing on her face.
"Let's continue," said Zor-El.
Chamber Room of El
"I have downloaded your son's DNA into the Crystal, it should work to the DNA of the chosen individual," explained Zod, handing it to him using code language incase they were heard by someone.
"You're right, Chloe," Clark agreed, narrowing his eyes suspiciously. "Something isn't right if they're using code language and don't want to heard."
"Knowing Zod and you're biological uncle, its probably something bad," Oliver pointed out.
"Should work?" Zor-El said, looking angry.
"There is a 16% chance something could go wrong," said Zod.
"Like what?" he asked.
A tall man with short white blond hair, was wearing a long white 'gown' with the a black 'S' in a crest, stepped out of the dark shadows, Lara right beside him.
"Jor-El," Clark smiled, glad that his biological father was in the scene with Lara beside him.
"I wonder if Lara told him about the baby," Lois wondered out loud.
"Lara probably did if she's standing beside him," Oliver pointed out, before adding: "Either that, or Jor-El accidently found out by himself and brought her along with him."
"I hope its the former," Chloe stated anxiously.
"Jor-El!" Zor-El spat, his eyes burning with hatred. He then noticed Lara beside him and his face turned into a mixture of betrayal and sadness, tears welling up in his eyes.
"LARA, HOW COULD YOU AFTER EVERYTHING I HAVE SACRIFICED FOR YOU, HOW COULD YOU BETRAY ME, US, WE COULD HAVE…!" his words cut off as he silently cried.
"You could have, but you won't," Lois remarked coldly, although she did feel a slight bit of sympathy towards Zor-El. "Since you did trick Lara into having sex with you."
General Zod hestitantly put a comforting arm on his left shoulder, even though he too was also very furious with the two of them.
"And of course, Zod is on Zor-El's side for this one," Clark sighed.
"It doesn't matter anyway, I have reprogrammed Brainiac to fulfil Rao's prophecy and in a few minutes we'll all be dead anyway," he finished, smiling evilly. "You won't do what you did to my child ever again, old friend."
"NO!" everyone yelled in outrage.
"NO!" yelled Jor-El, in a big and echoing voice, raising his hand to the Crystal.
The Crystal flew towards him and he caught easily. He then handed it to Lara and told her to throw it at the highest point in Kandor as high as she possibly can.
"Why?" Oliver questioned, although no-one answered, since they were eager to read about what happened next.
"What about the baby?" she shouted.
"Don't worry, Lara, I have already taken care of that. Now do as I say, please," Jor-EL ordered. He then shouted his last four words: "I love you, Lara!"
Everyone smiled sadly at this sentence, knowing that it was too late and they were going to die like they did in their universe.
She did the same and immediately did as she was told, while Jor-El buying her some time by versusing both General Zod and his brother in hand-to-hand combat alone. Lara hurriedly ran up the city of Kandor, ignoring the looks from people she passed by and continued to ascend the steep staircase to the very top of the Kandorian tower. Once there, she hurled the crystal soaring into the burnt sky. It was only a mere few metres in the sky, before the whole of Krypton exploded, sending pieces of green rock debris in all sorts of directions like one massive spectacular firework, but this event was not nearly as spectacular as the events that would eventually unfold…
"Alright, that's the end of the prologue," Clark announced, before asking: "Who would like to read next?"
"I would," Oliver said to which Clark gave him the book. "Okay, Chapter 1x1: Pilot..."
