Lois goes to Rushmark, Indiana, a town Superman is expected to go to in his walk across the United States. There, Lois meets Brian, an old college friend. Brian tells Lois that he is married and has two children. He invites her to his house for dinner, and Lois accepts. At Brian's home, Lois meets Huong, Brian's wife. After dinner, Lois talks with Huong and admits that she has doubts about her current life. Huong tells Lois that she shouldn't be think about the life she might have had, or she will be miserable. Later, Lois catches Brian and Huong having a discussion. Lois leaves and walks across the neighborhood. But as soon as she crosses a bridge, Superman appears and carries her up to the sky. The two kiss and Lois asks Superman if he needs her. Superman tells Lois that one of the things that makes him human is her. With her spirit rekindled, Lois kisses Superman again, and he takes her to Chicago.
