takes place for the most part before Barry got his powers.
3 years ago…
Barry waited outside of Jitters for Iris to finish her shift so they could go home together.
The streets were over crowded, probably because they all wanted to get everything done before the Particle Accelerator went on. Today was a big day for STAR Labs, the people of Central City, and in more ways than one; for him too. Not that he was aware of what was going to happen.
His little moment of spacing out was cut short by a loud male laugh. He looked up as if to catch what was so funny, but instead he was met by a breathtaking sight.
He saw you cleaning your shirt with a napkin after some coffee had spilled on your shirt. The man he assumed to be your boyfriend couldn’t stop laughing and you gave him a slight annoyed look.
He was able to catch some of your conversation with the guy.

Barry wondered if this is what love at first sight was. You, a beautiful, no, no, the most beautiful girl he had ever seen was standing here in front of him laughing at something most girls would be mad about.

“You ready?” Iris stood behind him.
“Yeah.” Was all he managed to say before Iris pulled him away.
He looked in your direction one last time and accepted his reality. Guys like him never under any circumstances, get a girl like that.
“This is a meta human was captured by the military a week after the Particle Accelerator exploded. Now she has escaped and the military has requested our help to get her back to them. She has the power to control any element to her will and is considered one of the strongest metas alive.” Cisco explained and finally managed to find a picture in the very large file. “Her name is Y/N Y/L/N.”
Now there was a face Barry never thought he’d
