Despite all the peeling paint, the house before him is fairly similar in architecture to the one he grew up in back on the farm.

No porch light is on to welcome him.

He's not esspecially surprised by the lack of warm welcome. After all, how does a house come to have the reputation of being haunted if it doesn't have plenty of cobwebs and darkness to fit the bill. He approaches the house slowly as to take in the atmosphere. All of this will be fodder for his story later so best to experience all the place has to offer.

Then he smiles a little. At least he's here at the right time of year. Now only if Z has been available to come with him. She'd have loved this.

He probably picks up the heartbeat before one of the shadows near the eves moves. Tim Drake has been casing the place like a professional burglar.

"Inquiring minds Mr. Kent?"

"Geeze. You startled me young man." He turns to look directly at Tim, quickly using his x-ray vision to see through the bushes and confirm it's him.

At that moment, there's the slightest transformation as Clark peeks at Tim over the top of his glasses. His mannerisms shore up and he's suddenly moving like someone who's capable and competent rather than a bumbling reporter.

"You'll need to slow your heartbeat a bit more if you want to get the drop on me." He offers a wry smile, "Don't tell Batman...but it took him a while to perect that trick, too."

The persona drops and he's back to being Clark Kent, "You should be careful, young man. This place is probably not haunted but that doesn't mean it's not dangerous."

The porch light pops on.

Motion sensors? Tim searches for evidence of such devices.

"Works on Connor." he quips while his eyes traverse the building's facade.

The casual tone is a tad forced. It's weird standing in front of him in civies. Surreal even.

There doesn't appear to be any motion sensors.

There's a knock at the door. From the inside.

Eyes go to the door.
Eyes go to Clark....



Eyes go back to the door.

"Ok, I'm opening the door unless you 'see' a reason not to.."

Clark appears to be contemplating something for a second, "OK. I think it's safe."

He lowers his glasses a bit and looks at the door with his X-Ray vision, "Probably better to know what's there than not." Esspecially now that he's got to watch out for the boy as well.

He's not certain, but he's pretty sure Bruce would be ticked if Tim got hurt under his watch...not that there's any reason to worry about that...and, of course, he'd probably also tell him Tim can take better care of himself than Clark can.

"Ok then..."

Reaching into his hoodie, Tim retrieves a nitrile glove. The boy scouts have nothing on the Bats. Slipping the glove on he tentatively grasps the door nob....


..then turns it.

"Tim? I'd feel a whole heck of a lot safer if you'd let me go first. I know there's certainly nothing to worry about but...mind humoring me?" He knows the young man is compentent and capable, but he is the adult here none the less, "Just in case?"

He lets go of the doorknob with as much caution as he first grasped it. It's amazing how much tension a doornob can generate, given the right circumstances.

Stepping lightly away from the door, he to the side seeking shadows as a reflex instinct.

"All yours Mister Kent."

Long standing habit has his eyes check their six and above.

He chuckles and, in his tone, is the slightest hint of trepidition. It's strange, seeing him like this. The 'mask' doesn't come off, even though they both know who he 'really is.' Then again, Tim probably knows better than anyone not to assume which is the mask and which is the man.

Clark steps forward and very hesitantly grabs the knob. He turns it and swings the door wide in one quick gesture, "huh huh. See? Nothing there." He's trembling...actually trembling.

"He...Hello? Uh...anyone there?" He leans his head in the door.
