As some of you may know Im at college and I’ve been doing exams the past month and I’ve been completely disconnected from Tumblr since it was a big distraction I can’t afford. Somehow I’ve managed to finis this chapter which I hope you like if you’re still interedted n the series! My last exam is tomorrow so I’ll have some time off until Friday but Iwill be off during the weekened again because on Saturday is my graduation but I think next week I will be here again so thank you so much for your patience and I’m sorry for all this time without any update!
That night you weren’t able to sleep. That sound The Flash has made
really got stuck in your head. It sounded like Barry but that was impossible.
Barry Allen couldn’t be the scarlet superhero, it just didn’t make sense. Plus,
he would have told you right? You were his girlfriend after all and being a
superhero was kind of a big deal. He wouldn’t keep something like that from
But what if he did?
At 4 a.m. you just couldn’t stay in bed any longer so you got up, made
some coffee and sat at the table with your laptop to start digging now about
Barry. You felt bad doing this. Asking him would be easier but you knew he
would never tell you anything. He would just tell you to stop searching and
that wasn’t an option.
Looking into Barry turned out to be even more frustrating than looking
into The Flash. He was just a guy working for the CCPD, there was nothing about
him except some news about some police cases in which he collaborated. Nothing
else. When the sun was already up in the sky you were just exhausted but it was
then when you found something you didn’t expect to find: Barry Allen was struck
by a lightning the night the particle accelerator exploded.
When you read that, you changed your searching pattern and searched
information about that night and about the boy who was struck by lightning.
Indeed, that had been Barry and he had been in a coma for months. Apparently,
when the accelerator exploded he was working in his lab. After a time of being
treated at the hospital, STAR Labs took him in to take care of him and it was
there where he woke up six months later. According to all the sources, he felt
fine when he woke up, like nothing ever happened and he just went back to his
That was weird. He got struck by a fucking lightning and no side
effects? Nothing? You could have kept on digging but you knew there was only
one person that could answer your new questions and he wasn’t going to be happy
about them. You got up from the chair, feeling sore after all those hours
sitting down, and took a shower, got dressed and headed towards Barry’s house,
ready to question him once and for all. He knew something about The Flash, you
knew it, you felt it, and he was going to tell you what he knew.
Fifteen minutes later you parked in front of Barry’s house. After taking
a deep breath, you got off the car, locked it and headed towards the door. You
had to admit you were a bit nervous when you knocked. Barry wasn’t going to like
it when he knew you had been investigating him but you really needed to get to
the bottom of this. You just couldn’t let it go now.
“(Y/N)! What a nice surprise” Joe said with a warm smile when he opened
“Morning, Mr West” you smiled back.
“Oh please, call me Joe and come in. We were just having breakfast so
you can join us” he said stepping aside so you could walk in.
“Thanks Joe” you smiled walking in and looking around. You loved this
place. It looked so familiar, so cosy, so…home.
“How’s everything at college?” He asked leading you towards the dining
room where Barry was. “Look who showed up for breakfast” he announced.
Barry looked up from his phone and immediately he smiled before getting
up. It looked like he just got up since his hair was all messy and he was
wearing his pj’s. He was adorable.
“What are you doing here?” He
smiled wrapping his arms around you.
“I came to…” for a moment you considered just telling him but you didn’t
want to cause a scene in front of Joe so you just looked at Barry and pecked
his lips. “I wanted to have breakfast with you” you shrugged.
“Then join us” he smiled pecking your lips again. “I can assure you
Joe’s pancakes are the best in town” he winked while you took a seat.
“He’s lying” Joe said. “They’re the best in the country” he added making
“They do smell like they are” you laughed. “Where’s Iris?” You asked
“She had to go to the paper this morning” Joe shrugged. “News never rest
he joked making you smile. It had been such a long time since you had a breakfast like this one.
Back in Star City everything was too messy and busy to have such things like
family breakfast. And you really missed them. You could remember those times at
the old Queen mansion, before your dad and Oliver went missing, when the five
of you used to sit all together to have breakfast almost every day. You used to
think it was a bit boring and dull but now you would give everything you had
just to enjoy one more breakfast with your family.
When you were finished, you insisted on cleaning up the table, ignoring
Joe’s and Barry’s protests. It was the least you could do. Once it was done,
Joe excused himself saying he had to go to the grocery store so you two sat on
“Those pancakes really were good” you admitted.
“I know” he smiled at you. “It was really nice having you here” he added
stroking one side of your face.
You smiled warmly at him before leaning in to kiss him slowly, just
enjoying the taste of his lips for a while, the feeling of his hand on your
waist, rubbing it up and down, pulling you closer.
“Actually…” you mumbled pulling away. You had to do what you had come to
do. “I wanted to talk to you” you said. He frowned a bit at the sudden
seriousness and sat up straight.
“About what?” He asked.
Biting your lip you took your bag and took the new about him you had
printed before going out of your apartment. It was the best one you had found
about the lightning struck. He took the paper and unfold it to read it. His
frown was even bigger as he saw what it was about. Seconds later, he looked up.
“You’ve been looking into me?” He asked.
“I…” you didn’t even know how to explain. Accusing him of being The
Flash was just crazy but there was something in your stomach telling you they
were connected. “Last night The Flash paid me a visit” you told him. His
expression didn’t even change, like he already knew. “Did you have something to
do with it?”
“I may have contacted him, yes” he shrugged. “Why look into me?”
“Because…” you bite your lip. “I think you two are connected and then I
found this, which you never told me about, and…” with a sigh you closed your
eyes. “Okay, I know this is crazy. But are you connected to him? Somehow?”
“The only reason I never told you about this is because it never came up
and it’s not something I use to talk about” he shrugged. “But why on earth
would I be connected to The Flash?”
“You contacted him last night” you said.
“The police has a way of contact him” he quickly replied. Too quickly.
“That’s bullshit” you snapped and you made him snap too.
“Stop! Stop looking into this! There is no connection! There is nothing
connecting me and that guy and the only thing you are going to get is killed,
don’t you understand?” He said getting up. You could see how frustrated he was
with this. “He’s just a fucking superhero doing his job! Leave him be!”
“You know I won’t” you said getting up as well.
He looked down at you, almost intimidating you by how tall he actually
was, but you managed to remain calmed.
“We can have this fight all the times you want, Barry, but I won’t stop
until I find the truth. And I will find it” you assured him before taking your
bag, the paper from his hand and heading towards the door. “Call me when you
accept it” you said before walking out of his house.
Once you left the house, all Barry wanted to do was break something. He
was too angry, too frustrated and too worried. He didn’t know what to do
anymore. Maybe telling you was the best option but he just didn’t want you
involved in that mess. You had a good life and he didn’t want to ruin it.
Since he was going crazy into the house, he got changed real quickly and
ran off to STAR Labs, hoping they would be able to help him.
“You have to tell her” Cisco said as soon as Barry exposed the issue.
“I knew you were going to say that” Barry laughed shaking his head.
“It’s the most logical answer” Caitlin shrugged. “What has happened to
your previous relationships?” She asked raising an eyebrow.
“That’s low” Barry mumbled crossing his arms.
“That’s the true” Caitlin said with a shrug.
“I’m aware that telling her would make this easier but it would also put
her in danger” Barry explained.
“She’s more in danger looking into The Flash without any warning” Cisco
“She’s been warned a million times already!” Barry exclaimed.
“But she doesn’t know why she’s been warned. For her, your ‘warnings’
are an overprotective boyfriend move to ‘keep her safe’”, Caitlin said.
“There’s no real danger for her” she added.
Barry frowned looking at the friends. They were right. Utterly right but
still, he didn’t want to tell you. It was too dangerous.
“What if a new villain comes, finds out about her and attacks her?”
“If she knew you were The Flash, she would be able to call for help”
Cisco replied. Right again. With a sigh, Barry shook his head still not knowing
what to do even when he knew what was the right thing to do. “Enough of this.
Barry, the police needs you” Cisco said looking at his phone. “Robbery in
progress” he added. In a second, Barry was into his suit and running out of the
Meanwhile, you were back in your apartment. You knew you should be doing
some college stuff but you were really getting obsessed with The Flash. You weren’t
going to stop until you found out everything about him. He had some explanation
left about Black Siren and you were to get it, even if you had to do it all by
yourself. You were going through every single web site that talked about The
Flash. It didn’t matter if it was just a sentence mentioning him. Everything could
be a lead and you needed everything you could find.
“Where do you come from?” You asked yourself. He just appeared out of
nowhere but he had to come out from some place. If you found that place, you
could go there and wait for him. He would have no way out.
Frustrated, you got up and went to the kitchen to pour yourself another
cup of coffee. There had to be some hint, anything trail that lead you to him. He
wasn’t a ghost. He was a real person.
“A trail…” you mumbled frowning. “Of course!
”You went back to your laptop and looked for Iris’ blog about him. She used
to say there was a lightning trail when he ran somewhere, like it followed him.
That was the key. It had to be. Finally you saw some photos and smiled. You couldn’t
see him but there was that strike just behind him. If you could find out where
that strike started you would find him.
It wasn’t an easy job. You had to find every single photo related to The
Flash and put it all together, trying to make a puzzle. Most of them just got
lost in random places that made no sense, like Jitters or CCPD. But then, you
discovered a new place. One you never thought about and you definitely should
have done it. STAR Labs.
It was an article about Harrison Wells. He used to work at STAR Labs. He
had been the inventor of the particle accelerator. He worked in STAR Labs. He had
treated Barry and he had been interviewed about The Flash a couple of years
ago. According to the article, Wells denied any connection to the super hero
but admitted he must had been affected by the particles explosion. That was it.
The Flash was connected to STAR Labs. Whoever worked there had the answer
you had been looking for.
Immediately, you took your car keys and ran down to your car. There was
no time to lose. Luckily, STAR Labs were easy to find: it was a huge ugly
building on the other side of the river. Easy to see. When you parked outside
of the building and got out of the car you looked around. There was just a car.
Nothing else. According to what you read, the Labs had been closed since the
accelerator incident so you didn’t expect many people in there.
Finally, you gathered the courage to walk into the building. It looked
completely abandoned, like no one had been there in years which was possibly
true, but your instinct told you to keep walking. At the end of the hall, you
saw an elevator. Would it work? Biting your lip, you pressed the button and
soon the doors opened. It looked almost new and it definitely had been used
before. There was just a button that would take you to the basement so you
pushed it without thinking about it twice.
What you found out of the elevator didn’t look abandoned at all. Someone
worked there and you could even hear some voices down the hall which made you
nervous. Maybe you were about to meet The Flash.
“Wow, you really were fast this time” a male voice said when you walked
in a room where two people were in front of very advanced computers. The guy
that had talked turned around in his chair, but his face went pale when he saw
you. “Security breach” he said, making the girl on the chair turn as well.
“Oh shit” she said.
Then, there was a strong gust of wind all around you. The guy and the
girl didn’t even flinch, like they were used to that but when you saw the
scarlet strike running by your side you gasped and looked up. You had it right.
But you never expected what you saw.
“Barry?” You whispered when you saw the guy under the hood.
It wasn’t until you said his name that he noticed your presence and,
when he did, a billion expressions went through his face in one second:
confusion, shock, surprise, anger and finally fear.
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms and especially my mom, I love you!
Reece graduates from high school next Saturday, he’s valedictorian and I’m so proud of him.
I used to share all my thoughts here, now I write them all down in a journal. I find writing everything out is a lot more enjoyable. I usually write in the journal 5 days a week, I’m writing my thoughts on my life now and my memories from my life. I’m hoping whoever finds them in the future will enjoy them.
It’s been 6 years since I started Tumblr, a lot has happened in these 6 years. Ups and downs but I’m very happy. I miss talking to everyone but it feels good to have a life that’s not on the internet.
I got hooded today! I had asked my neuro professor to hood me, and it was such an honor! She’s such an inspiration! Now, finals on Wednesday and graduation next Saturday! Home stretch and I can’t wait to be done!
Hey Tay, it’s Lauren! I wanted to tell you that I miss you and love you so much it’s unbelievable. ALSO I graduate nursing school next Saturday and it’s important that you know that! Glad you’re having a blast in Australia, I’m super jealous you got to visit the Steve Irwin zoo!!! Love you!!
