Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for language; established relationship.
Word count: 1980
Spoilers: None really.
Disclaimer: I don't own these shows or the characters from them. Just borrowing for fun things.
Summary: A casual conversation turns into a panic attack, or something like it. Established Clark/Ruby friendship...sort of. There was definitely some manipulation in there somewhere.
Notes: This is the longest single scene I've ever written as well as the longest fic I've ever written. I didn't really have anything in mind when I started, just let to story go where it was going to go. I hope someone enjoys my insanity. Title from All That I Am by Rob Thomas.
