ADDICTED FOR 15 DAYS » day six | a child(ren) you love so much; maximoff, luna, xander, and kinney hale
Our four kids and floppy-eared basset hound stand on the hillside, a common spot because of the rope swing tied to a maple branch. Moffy raises a set of portable speakers, Bangarang by Skrillex booming. Luna, Xander, and Kinney— they wave out to us and lift up a sign together that reads: we love you!
They were a part of this surprise all along. I laugh and cry simultaneously again. As we watch our kids, joy coating their faces, childlike wonder in their eyes, I remember every moment I spent with Lo where we said we can’t. Where we said we shouldn’t. Not people like us. This isn’t meant for us.
Imagine though Iris getting really good at spooking criminals in the city with how thorough she is. And then one day she’s getting close in this case about some crime boss or something and so he sends one of his lackeys after Barry and Barry kind of just lets him kidnap him cause he just wants to see how it plays out.
And he’s like “who are you?” and the guy tells him his entire plan about how if Iris doesn’t drop the story he’s gonna kill him. And Barry’s just like “so…you’re not like… a meta”. And the dude like flashes his gun and he’s just like “I’m scary enough on my own pal”. And Barry just smirks like “you’re just….a regular guy?” And the criminal dude is so confused because he’s got this lanky nerdy looking kid tied to a chair and he’s not even blinking and so he tries to change it up and he’s like “okay, we’ll call your girlfriend and see what she says”
And then he gets Barry’s phone and dials Iris and he’s like “I have your boyfriend” and Iris is like “who is this? Weather Wizard? Prism?” And he’s like “I’m the guy who has your boyfriend. And if you ever wanna see him again you’ll drop the story”. And Iris has to like stifle a smile because Barry is still kinda in danger so she asks to speak with him and when he puts Barry on she’s just like “Babe, how’d you get yourself kidnapped?” and Barry’s like “It wanted to see what would happen, I don’t know what to tell you” And then he starts laughing like “Babe, he’s just like…a regular dude. He looks like his name is Glenn or something–” “My name is Pete” “His name is Pete” And they’re both laughing so hard but it’s so inappropriate and Iris is like “well like..hurry up, you’re supposed to be making dinner tonight” and Barry’s like “Alright–but hey! You got your first ransom! I’m so proud of you!” And she’s like “thanks babe” and then she waits on the phone while he beats the guy up and gets free.
And when he gets home they just start cracking up laughing. They tell all their friends (that know about Barry) that he got kidnapped by a regular dude and Iris’ story is a hit. I suck at conclusions. This was just rolling around in my head and it made me crack up. Maybe I’ll write it sometime later.
