Summary: Clark's Superman duties weigh silently on Lois — more than even he realizes.

It cost her.
When he got that faraway look in his eyes. When he vaulted into the sky to save a stranger's life. When her heart twisted with worry — it cost her.
How much, he'd never know.
Clark might be Superman, but he wasn't completely invulnerable. All it took was some nut with a sliver of Kryptonite. Wedge that in the one infinitesimal chink in Clark's seamless armor, and he'd be lost.
And she'd be wrecked.
But Lois didn't dare tell him — he worried about her far too much already. She couldn't bear to stitch another suffocating patch of guilt on his already stifling blanket of responsibility.
It cost her — but loving her husband was worth any price.
