Prompt: Maggie finding out Alex jumped off a building
The DEO building wasn’t too far from where she was standing. Her back was against a wall, the gun she held was still hot and she kept her eyes open for signs of more daxamite warriors. Hell had broken lose, but it all stopped when she saw the woman jumping from the top of the building.
To be clear, it wasn’t any woman. It was Alex – her Alex – who was falling over 50 feet towards the ground. It was Alex who had fired her favorite alien gun and leaped backwards, not even looking down.
And, now, Alex was heading down faster and faster. Suddenly, Maggie’s whole world was falling apart. She couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, she couldn’t even think of how cliché it all was. The city was doomed and all she could think of was Alex, Alex, Alex.
And Maggie was about to scream, about to cry out in pain and give up, because there was nothing she could do to save her. But her fear lost itself inside her throat when a blur of red and blue came out of nowhere and, in the fraction of a second, Alex was safe, flying out of sight with her sister.
Kara had been there to catch her, Alex had known Kara would there to catch her, she wouldn’t have jumped otherwise. That’s what Maggie kept telling herself.
She tried to forget it. Alex was safe, the city was safe, the daxamites were gone for good, but Maggie wouldn’t stop thinking about it. It was bohering her so badly that, on night, when they were cuddling on the couch and watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine reruns, he decided to ask.
“Babe,” Alex hummed in response. “During the invasion, when… When you jumped of the DEO, you knew Kara would catch you, right? I mean, you were sure she would be there, that you wouldn’t fall.
“Yeah, I knew she’d be there.” Her girlfriend kissed her temple. “I called her when they broke in. She told me she was coming.”
“Because, I- I was on the streets and… I saw you going down. Damn it Alex, I was so scared, I thought I had lost you. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to handle it.”
“Hey, don’t worry, I knew what I was doing.” Alex held her tighter. “You’re not getting rid of me so easily. I’m not leaving you.”
“Good.” Maggie relaxed. “I don’t want you to.”
