She didn’t come right out and say it. She never did, but you knew. You saw the side glances, the frowns when you and Barry spoke together, and the blank stares she gave you. You knew that Iris West defiantly did not like you.
You didn’t mind. Barry was her best friend, of course she would be protective of him. You were someone she’s never met before, that has spent very little time in Barry’s life and he was still with you so much. Plus the whole he liked her first, and didn’t have a lot of girlfriends in the first place. You could understand why she was so uneasy. Respect it, even.
What you didn’t respect, or even be able to begin to understand, was why she didn’t come right out and talk to you about it. You were both adults, and sure you were a meta human and dating her best friend.. But you were both grown up now and you thought you two should start acting like it.
So when Barry was with Cisco, you paid Iris a visit at work, and offered her a coffee at the restaurant she used to work at.
The two of you had a lot to discuss..
