she was so jumpy when it came to this question

it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter

title | it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter

notes | Okay, so I combined three prompts I had for this one, since they were all very similar:

  • snowbarry-jennoist : Hi! Can you please write a snowbarry fic where Caitlin tells Barry about her kiss between the fake Barry??
  • wholikeswho : Hi, can I request for a fic where Caitlin tells Barry about the fake!Barry kiss after Barry questions her why she’s so jumpy when he tapped her shoulder and then feels sorry and comforts her with a real kiss? :)
  • emeraldguardianproductions : Could you write a story about Barry finding out about the shapeshifter kissing Caitlin as Barry and them then realizing their feelings for each other? Thanks XD Love your FanFics! 

And this is what I came up with. Doesn’t necessarily go too deep into the feelings, more like the awakened possibility, but I hope you all like it. Thanks for the prompts!

“Come here,” and Barry doesn’t even think when he reaches for her hand, but in those moments when his fingers are skimming hers, he panics a little, remembering how she’d shied away from his touch earlier. He’s not sure what has her startled but he certainly doesn’t want to push. It’s a relief when her hand opens to reach for his—a momentary reprieve from the pressure that’s been building in his chest since he got word that Joe and Cisco were back with news. The rest of the world is upside down but at least this is back to normal. “I need to show you something.”
