Summary: HG/GL drabble challenge. Theme of "all that glitters."


Hawkgirl's mace flashed with electricity, the bright arcs reflecting off the lenses of her mask. She was on his team, but Lantern's heart pounded with fear.


John slid her mask off. Her green eyes glittered with apprehension. He moved forward and touched her lips. His restarted heart beat faster.


"I love you, John. I never lied about that." Restrained emotions shimmered in her eyes. Shayera flew away and his heart shattered.


"You promised!"

John looked to Shayera who shrugged.

"Okay," he relented. "We'll go flying."

Rex's green eyes sparkled with happiness when his dad picked him up. John's heart melted.
