Snowbarry or Westallen - The Choice

Barry Allen has always been in love with Iris and now things are going great between them. Until Barry starts getting close to Catlin Snow. They have a bond that no one can explain. Barry cares about her deeply and so does Catlin.

But when this is tested, Barry has to choose between protecting Iris or saving Catlin. What will he do? Even the fastest man alive can protect everyone at once.


29. Twenty Nine

Iris tried to shake her hands free. They were tied back and so was her mouth. She didn't  know where she was. Last thing remembered was being kidnapped and kept with Caitlin. They were near the docks, then she was unconscious. When she woke up she was tied up and here. Where was Caitlin and what did Ethan and Stacey want.

She remembered Caitlin begging them to let her go. She begged that she had nothing to do with STAR Labs and that she shouldn't be punished for what happened to them. She was willing to go with quietly in exchange for her release. 

She heard someone talking in the back and tried to focus on the voice and what they were saying. She couldn't make out if it was Ethan or someone else but couldn't make out who it was.

"They have been told where they are. He has one minute to go and try and save both or one," came a new voice. 

Panic rose in Iris. She didn't know what was happeneing but from what she was able to make out, Barry had a choice to save both of them. So what was it about save one or both. If that was so then it was going to be a hard decision for Barry to make. He wouldn't be able to choose one. Deep down she knew that Barry loved him and their was a chance that he would come to her first. Suddenly she realising what she was thinking, she pushed away the thought. 


"Barry you have to make a decision, as hard as it is you can't waste time," Cisco said interrupting his thought. 

"Run Barry run," said Dr Wells. "I know you care for Caitlin but you have known Iris longer and you love her. Don't let the love of your life go. There is also a chance you can save both."

Taking in a deep breath and closing his eyes, he cleared his mind and ran. He had to try  and save both and he had to consider all the facts and make this decision. Wells was righr. And he ran. He ran as fast as possible to save her, save them both. 

He arrived at the location. He looked around and checked out the area. He looked around to see any sign of Ethan or  Stacey. 

"I'm now triangulating the GPS location of her now. She is definitely here and by docks 1145976. Only have sign of one person there now," informed Felecity. 

Barry made his way to location and saw the guy guarding. Next to him he saw siting on the edge was Iris. Barry heard a buzzer and with in split second Iris was pushed and she was falling. Snapping back into action he ran and punched the guy. He came back at him and Barry punched him again and this time he lay unconscious. Looking down, Barry ran down and grabbed her hand. She stopped falling and he ran back up. He lay her down and opened her hands and mouth. 

"Go," she yelled back. 

Barry ran and made his way to the other location. He arrived and sure enough found a guy standing at the edge of the Cliff. Barry held his collar and pinned him down to the floor.

"You are too late, Flash. She is gone and it is clear who you chose to protect in the end."

Barry looked down at the edge somehow hoping to see Caitlin but there was no sign of her. He fell back in shock. He couldn't believe this was happening. How could he not  be able to save Caitlin? He had made a promise to himself that he wasn't going to let anyone die and yet she was gone.   


Barry arrived back at the Labs with Iris. Everyone was waiting for them and their faces fell and saddened when they only saw them too. They were happy to see Iris but loosing Caitlin hit them hard. Barry didn't say anything and no body knew what to say to make the pain go away. He quietly went and sat in a quiet room alone.

There was a pain building in the pit of his stomach. Same as the one he had felt when he had lost his father. He thought back to the last moments that he shared with Caitlin and he was unable to stop the tears. Iris quietly came and sat down next to him and placed a hand on his shoulders.

"Barry, I know I cant say anything that will make you feel better or will bring her back. All I can do is be by your side and help you in anyway I can. I know how much she meant to you. This all wasn't easy for you and I just want you to know that Caitlin knew that you cared for her. So don't blame yourself by thinking that because you saved me you didn't care for her."

Barry turned to face Iris. He tried to give her a smile but even if what she said was true, he couldn't stop thinking about this feeling in his heart. It felt like he had lost something too important to him and he couldn't get it back. He thought about Caitlin's smile that he wouldn't see again, he thought of her sweet and calming voice, her beautiful brown eyes that always showed warmth and compassion for others.

Thinking about Caitlin brought a smile to his face and Iris noticed his eyes sparkle. She saw something in them that she hadn't seen for so long. She realised something then and there. She wasn't the reason he was smiling and had a sparkle in his eyes. It wasn't her who Barry was thinking about.

He was thinking about Caitlin and whether he knew this or not, he not only cared about Caitlin but he was in LOVE with her. He hadn't saved his love but saved someone he was in love with at one time.
