Inspired by the pics of the first date (yes, I know they’re a few months old at this point) and @inksmudge’s comments about how they’ve seen each other in their schlubbies their entire lives, but they dressed up for their first date like it was freakin’ senior prom.
Project Date Night
Joe West had never signed up for this. Raise Barry? Sure. Teach him right from wrong? Absolutely. Support him as he became a superhero? Bring it on.
Play Tim Gunn while Barry ran back and forth trying to get the absolute perfect outfit for his first date with Iris?
That was a bridge too far.
“Is this too casual? This is too casual.” Whoosh, and then whoosh again as he returned in a new outfit. “What do you think? Oh my god. What am I thinking? This is way worse.” Whoosh-whoosh. “Okay, okay, sport coat and jeans? Yeah. No.” Whoosh-whoosh.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, (Y/N).” Barry said looking behind you at Iris.
“What? So you don’t realise that she is flirting with you? Because half of the time you flirt back!” You say with your voice slightly raising.
“I’m not flirting with her. I’m just supporting her over Eddie’s death.” Barry mumbled before taking a sip of his coffee.
“Barry, that happened over a year ago. And I hared her talking to Caitlin. Barry, she likes you, and I know that you will always lover her. You guys will be getting married in less than 10 so where does that leave us? I know you love me, but you love Iris more.” With that you stood up and walked out of jitters. Barry didn’t even try to stop you.
You headed to S.T.A.R Labs to get your things. The only thing that was keeping you in central city was Barry. You walked into the cortex and saw Caitlin and Cisco at a computer.
You just ignored them. You packed up your things and headed out. Caitlin knew why you were leaving and that’s why she didn’t say anything.
You walked out of S.T.A.R Labs and walked over to your car. Just as you unlocked it someone called for you.
“(Y/N), where are you going?” It was Barry. You looked up and saw Iris standing beside him. Holding his hand. That was fast you thought to yourself.
“Barry, I’m going back to Miami. I’m not staying here any longer.” You say before jumping into your car and driving off.
