Caitlin's Point of View
I end up staying at S.T.A.R Labs pretty late, everyone has gone home but I was interested in Barry's cells. There must be a way for him to continue training without putting himself at risk. Obviously I want to encourage and support him to be the best he can be, but I honestly don't know if I can handle losing someone that I see a potential future with again. The thought leaves an ache in my stomach and I have to close my eyes for a few seconds for it to go away. I never expected to get so many feelings so quickly for him.
After hours of research and different equations I think I found a few ideas that could ensure Barry's safety whilst training. I must've got so lost in the work as when I check the time it's almost midnight. I consider calling Barry to see if he would walk me home as it unnerves me a little being alone this late, but he's probably asleep and I don't want to wake him. I don't live that far anyway.
I spend a few minutes gathering my things and neatening up my desk before leaving. It takes about 10 minutes to properly lock up S.T.A.R Labs, so by the time I was ready to leave it was even later. I realised I needed to grow up a little bit as I should be able to walk home on my own by now, I just couldn't shake the feeling that I was being watched and followed.
I'd been walking for about 10 minutes and still felt someone's eyes lingering, I wanted to turn around and see if anyone was there but I was too afraid to find out. Before I even had the chance to think about it any longer my hands were forced behind my back and a large hand covered my mouth to stop me screaming. I tried to work against he force holding me still but whoever it was, was too strong.
Suddenly I was spun around and held facing the masked man, he pushed me against a wall hard enough to wind me slightly.
"You tell Barry to stop looking for me." He said in a low, deep voice. I didn't have a chance to reply before he smashed my head against the wall. It didn't knock me out as I felt the pain completely take over my body, then he started kicking. Jabs of sharp pain shot through me at every hit, before I finally couldn't take it anymore and let myself fall unconscious.
