WHO: Caitlin & Cisco WHAT: Meeting up WHEN: Evening at the beach WARNINGS: TBD STATUS: Closed
When Caitlin accept Arva's invitation to live out the rest of her life in a peaceful, beautiful, paradise, she did not expect to find anyone else from Central City around. Most of Team Flash were highly dedicated to their place among the heroes even if they were not in the role of "Fastest Man Alive". No one, besides herself, had ever shown a sign of wanting to leave or abandon their place on the team. Even after Reverse Flash, the majority of them stuck by Barry's side or wanted to. At that point, Barry had been trying to handle the task of being The Flash on his own in order to protect his friends from further harm or death. Caitlin, with Ronnie's death, left the team because she couldn't handle the memories, the pain that S.T.A.R Labs held within the recesses of its walls. She was surprised Arva had not come to her then because of how miserable and dismayed she was with her life in Central City. The guilt of not leaving when Ronnie asked, that might have spared him by accepting the offer, overran her, but it was too late. She knew Ronnie would not have wanted her to blame herself, but it was too late for that. Some part of her always would and she knew there was nothing she could do about it except learn to live with it somehow. Seeing Cisco was certainly a surprise for the brunette; he was one of the most dedicated people to Barry and one of the strongest mentally.
Still, she was happy to see a familiar face among the faces, especially with it being Cisco and someone she considered her best friend. That particular evening she was meeting him on the beach for a chat. Though they had spoken on the network, the two were yet to actually meet in person here. The brunette was looking forward to it. For one, she had a lot of questions for the young man like why had he come here and what was the last thing he remembered. She was told that people came from different places in their timelines here. Part of her figured he was probably around where she came from, but then again, she couldn't be sure from just a chat on the network. For Caitlin, she'd just come from facing one of the worst enemies they ever had: Zoom. What made it worse was that she'd fallen in love with Jay before discovering he was their nemesis. He'd kidnapped her and held her prisoner; though she had not spoke much about it or displayed much different, altered behavior, she was dealing with the trauma she'd experienced while in his clutches. Arva offered her a way out; she offered her a place where there was no pain, but just the chance to experience and enjoy life. It was hard for someone like Caitlin to refuse the chance at a peaceful existence. Plus, this was place was nicknamed "Sex Island".
Part of her figured that was a lot of why Cisco might have come here; most men tended to follow the same thought process. Settling into a place on the cooling sand, she figured she would find out soon enough. The sun was just starting to set on the horizon, sinking below the skyline, and Caitlin pulled her knees to her chest. Killer Frost had a lot to do with it too, didn't she? Seeing herself as a meta-human was pretty mind blowing, especially since she'd done every test imaginable on herself and found she was clear of anything despite exposure. The pale young woman with icy blue eyes and blue lips was a frightening wake up call for Caitlin. It was just...not her. She'd never be capable of killing someone or stealing from them. She wasn't villain material and yet, there she was, with ice powers, and no feelings at all. It was another problem Caitlin had yet to address. Cisco also believed himself clear of being a meta-human and they both knew now that wasn't the case. If it happened to him in both realities, wasn't there an equal chance the same would happen to Caitlin? Maybe in coming here, she'd dodged a bullet. At least with no triggers here, she stood a better chance of keeping her powers locked up for good. Wiggling out of her heels, the brunette wiggled her toes into the sand and closed her eyes, indulging in the sun's fading rays.
