Metropolis was not the same as when he'd left four years ago.

He found himself walking slowly down the sidewalks of the city, a little taken back at how rundown things appeared. Buildings all over the city were littered with graffiti, and many had cracked or even broken windows. There was trash lining the gutters and streets.

Feeling wary, he made his way across the city and to the park, drawing in a breath and letting it out slowly as he sat down on a park bench, rubbing his hands over his face as he stared into the distance, his expression dazed.

Maddie had been so focused on getting her ball that as she ran across the park and right in front of the bench the man was sitting on, she didn't realize the tree branch on the floor and tripped on it, falling face first on the grass with a thud.

Oliver blinked, looking down at the little girl, wincing as she hit the ground hard. He quickly glanced around, searching for any sign of her parents, but saw no one nearby. "Hey, are you okay?" He moved off the bench and knelt down beside her.

Her eyes were big as she took a moment to realize what had happened, and then her face fell and she sniffed a little, sitting up and looking up at the stranger.

His chest tightened as the girl sniffed a little. "It's okay," he whispered, holding his hands up. He glanced over her, but didn't see any signs of blood on her hands or face. "Are you hurt?"

Sniffing again, Maddie shook her head and looked down at her knees then looked over at where her ball had ended up, "my ball," she told him, her eyes big and then she paused, staring up at him closely.

"Oh." He offered her a small smile, then glanced to where the ball had rolled under the bench he'd been sitting on. He shifted a little, reaching out and retrieving it for her. "Here you go," he said softly.

Maddie stood up and took the ball, "thank you, mister." She said politely but didn't move, she was still staring at him.

As soon as the little girl had taken off running, Oliver rose to his feet, walking after her just to make sure that she got back safely to her mother.

It was when he spotted the woman who'd called for her that he grew still, his eyes widening.

"Are you okay?" Chloe breathed, brushing Maddie's hair from her face and pressing a kiss to her forehead.

Maddie nodded a little and hugged her mom tightly, "I had to get my ball," she explained.

Oliver couldn't take his eyes off them. God, he couldn't believe he hadn't realized it immediately. The little girl looked just like her, except for the color of her eyes.

He tried to get his feet to move forward, or at the very least raise his hand in a wave, but he he was too stunned at the realization that Chloe Sullivan had a daughter to move.

"Okay," Chloe breathed and nodded a little, "next time just ask me and I'll get it for you, okay?"

Maddie pursed her lips and nodded a little, "the man helped me."

Maddie smiled shyly at him then laid her head on her mom's shoulder.

Chloe rubbed her hand over Maddie's back and nodded, looking at Oliver and holding his gaze, "the others haven't heard," she told him, hoping that would be enough for him to understand what she meant, "I would like to keep it that way."

Oliver nodded slightly, watching her. "I don't really talk to them, so...no one will hear it from me," he said quietly.

"Thank you," she told him, letting out her breath, she was still thrown about one of them finding out about Maddie, but she knew it was only a matter of time before that happened now that she was back in the city.

With a deep breath she looked at him for a moment, "now I don't have to find a babysitter so I can go talk to you, so we should schedule a meeting soon."

Date: 2011-02-14 06:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dl-greenarrow.livejournal.com
"Right," he said softly, nodding a little. A meeting, right. Business. The reason he was in the city again.

"Whenever's best for you is fine. Just...let me know."

"Can I come too, mommy?" Maddie asked, lifting her and looking between the two adults.

Oliver nodded a little, glancing around and raising his eyebrows as he realized the park was nearly vacant and that the few people who remained were making their way toward their cars hurriedly.

Sundown, he realized, his chest tightening a little. "Yeah, we should get going," he agreed.

Chloe nodded a little, hugging Maddie even closer then walking over to the other bench where she'd been sitting at before Maddie nearly gave her a heart attack and picking up an oversized purse.

"This way," she told him, pursing her lips together.

"Can I show him Mr. Bear when we get home?" Maddie asked curiously, smiling as the man started to walk with them.

It was impossible not to smile at the little girl. "I'd like that," he told her softly as they walked. He kept a wary eye out.

Chloe smiled softly at Maddie then glanced at Ollie, surprised to find him smiling too, "you can, but after you shower, so we don't get him dirty, okay?"

Date: 2011-02-14 07:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ifeelittoo.livejournal.com
"Okay!" Maddie grinned then looked at Oliver, "he's the best bear ever, he always protects me when mommy isn't home."
