His Glasses: A Superman Returns ficlet

They bump into each other. Her purse spills out on the floor. His glasses fall and he lets them. He can pluck bullets from the air but he can not catch his glasses. She drops down to scoop everything back in her purse and hands his glasses up to him.

He takes them from her hand, holds them, looks at them, does not put them on. The fastest man on Earth hesitates. He wants her to look up. He wants her to see him.

He waits for her to look up. And waits.

An eternity passes and he puts on his glasses.

Author’s note: ┬áThis is the only part of Superman Returns that I liked.
