Prompt for Maggie to save Kara's life like "she needs you more than she needs me" and also "you're my family too" something like that
Extra careful, that’s what Alex had told her to be. Extra careful, because these people they were planning on arresting had managed to put their hands on some kryptonite. Extra careful, because not even Supergirl was invincible against them.
Listening to her sister, she paid attention to everything, avoiding bullets and destroying weapons before they could hurt anyone. She only let her guard down when the last of them stood unarmed right in front of her. Mission accomplished.
Kara didn’t expect to be pushed to the ground neither to hear shots being fired. But, still, someone had managed to aim a gun at her and fire. Twice.
She heard her sister cry in pain and looked up immediately, thinking she’d see Alex on the ground beside her, having just saved her from being shot. Only Alex wasn’t there, she was all the way across the room, running as fast as she could towards her and towards Maggie. Because Maggie was the one who had saved her, and now, she laid on the ground, her shirt soaking more and more with blood every passing second.
And Kara couldn’t do anything. She couldn’t fly Maggie to the DEO without risking putting her in more danger, she couldn’t fight the two rogue aliens because Yve and some other agent had already taken them, she couldn’t even comfort Alex, who was already kneeling beside her bleeding girlfriend, begging for medical assistance.
So all she could do was to wait, wait for them to move Maggie to the med bay, waiting for the surgery to be over as she looked over her sister as she blamed herself for being too shaky to be able to help, waiting for the doctors to say Maggie was okay, waiting for Alex to leave the room after assuring herself that her girlfriend was fine.
When her sister finally left the recovery room, she told Kara to go in, that Maggie wanted to talk to her. Though she didn’t understand exactly why, she found Maggie smiling at her.
“You okay, Little Danvers?”
“You tell me, you’re the one sitting on the med bay.” Kara jokes, but her face is serious. “Why… Why did you do it?”
“What? Why did I heroically save your ass?” She smirks. “I couldn’t not try to save you, it’s my job. Besides it’s not like I don’t care about you either, you know?”
“Maggie, you could have died.”
“So could you, if I hadn’t done anything.” Maggie reasoned.
“But if you died, Alex…”
“If I died, Alex would be in pain, but she’d get over me some day. If you died, Alex would never be the same, and neither would I, knowing I could have stopped it.” Kara didn’t know what to say. “And again, you’re my family too, you’re not getting hurt on my watch.
At that, Kara smiled.
So, it took me a while to get to this one because I don’t have the speedforce with me, unlike our Lord and saviour @queercapwriting, but… still hope you guys like it.
