When the warning that a hurricane was approaching the island Finn knew what he had to do, as much as Riley disliked it (and had said so in no uncertain terms) he could help, water was his thing - his ability and if he was able to save even one structure from getting too damaged in the destruction that he knew would follow, it would all be worth it. While he wasn’t the only hydrokinetic on the island he was probably one of the most powerful so it was decided that Finn would go down to the dock, their food and the rest of the supplies came via there, any real damage might result in boats unable to make their deliveries. This dock was the only real lifeline between the rest of the world and the island and Finn was going to do everything he could to make sure it stayed standing.
As the hurricane got closer and the storm surge started to build Finn took his place on the dock, facing the torrential rain. He wasn’t afraid of getting washed out to sea or anything but he could hear Riley in the back of his mind, telling him how crazy he was to be standing right there in the path of it all. The waves grew bigger as each minute passed and the hurricane neared the land, in the pouring rain he stood there, using everything he knew and had been taught about his ability to drive the water and waves away.
It wasn’t easy, Finn had never undertaken such a large task - trying to control the darn ocean (that wasn’t just making some better waves for him to surf) or for so long, the hours wore on, he fought the exhaustion that threatened to set in and only when things seemed to improve, when the worst of the storm seemed to be over did Finn finally give into that ache that went through his whole body. Collapsing unceremoniously on the dock.
