Eyes light up with unadulterated eager teen glee.

"You have me vote for Superhero of the year."

The little town in fact has an old fashioned soda shop that is only a block away..

She laughed and tossed an arm around his shoulders. "Okay, you're good for my ego." She twiddled her fingers in the air and muttered, "teertS sehtolc rof owt," and it was something a little less fishnetty, more jeans and a college football shirt.

"I'll spring for the sugary goodness."

He jumps a little at the sudden change, but marvels as well. While Clark wasn't a big fan of magic, Connor had to admit it was pretty cool.... when it wasn't in the shape of a big spider-squid thing.

He plucks at the football shirt. Metropolis Meteors. He sorta smiles. Sorta not.
Sugary goodness though? ALL SMILES.

"I'm gonna have a hot fudge sunday!"

The perks of a partially Kryptonian metabolism.

Seated at the sunday fountain, "Don't tell Kid Flash, but this beats after-fight waffles hands down."

She was putting back a hot fudge sundae of her own, complete with chocolate ice cream. Zee didn't do chocolate by halves.

"Totally!" She chuckled around a mouthful of sweet, wiping a dribble of hot fudge from her lip with a finger. "Waffles are comfort food. This is a celebration."

Connor gets a semi-glazed look over his eyes when hot fudge meets mouth.

A few inarticulate Homer Simpson noises later," This has gotta become the new tradition. Ice Cream is a seriously under rated motivation to fight slime monsters."

More spoonfuls of chocolate nirvana.

"Beats cramming for the SAT any day."

She couldn't help but giggle for the noises and nudged him with her elbow. "Just so long as you call it something after me."

She pushed her dish of goodness away with a wrinkle of her nose. Any more of that and her hips might not squeeze back into the fishnets.

"Yeah? How's that going? Got any universities in mind?"

A slight cloud invades on the otherwise sunny expression.

"Welll.. not really."

He stirs the soupy mess of what remains of the dish.

"I don't think I'd cut it in college."

"What?" Her brows shot up and she straightened in her chair with a stunned look on her face. "Why not?"

The ice cream seems to be less interesting than before, but he still stirs it around.

"C'mon Zee... I'm not exactly Brainic-5."

"So?" She was a bit confused and it showed in the tilt of her head. "You don't have to major in rocket science if that's not what you're interested in."

A furrow in Connor's brow suggests he too is missing her point.
"Well...when they guys were talking about college awhile ago."

'The guys' most likely being Connor's teen heroic peers.

"Robin's only problem deciding where he's going to go, and if he'll accept the free ride they're offering him. Kid Flash pretty much already knows what they're be teaching him, probably already memorized the text books already. Cassie's already taking lessons from Amazon scholars..I.."

He hangs his head.
"I just kinda feel like me going to college would be like some kinda sick joke in comparison."

"Why, Connor?" She didn't like hearing him talk about himself like that. It showed in the gentle concern in her voice and in the touch of her hand to the back of his.

"If money is the issue that can be dealt with, but you can't compare yourself to them. You only have to worry about comparing yourself to you. What do you want?"

Connor wrestlers with the question.

"I..I guess I want to.."
he frowns.

"I ..I don't think I know."

Looking up, he makes sure they don't have any eavesdroppers.
"I've been working on trying to measure up to Superman..I just never thought there would be time for anything else. I..."

He frowns again.
"No..that's bull..."

A look of worried guilt.

"I think I'm hung up on maybe getting outclassed."
