Caitlin's POV

I kiss Barry knowing he won't be returning, crying like a waterfall but I couldn't see him like this so I leave the Med Bay only to hear the sound of a gasp of air. I turn around to see Barry looking around while still lying down.

"Barry!" I yelled while running towards him giving him a kiss.

"What happened? Why can't I feel my legs?" Barry asked

"When you were fighting Zoom he kinda broke your back"

"How long will it take your heel?"

"A three to six hours at least"

As I start to cry of joy Cisco runs in.

"Barry! Dude don't scare us like that. We thought we lost you" Cisco said

"Hey don't worry this won't happen again" Barry said. I hear people running in the hall outside of the Cortex to see Joe, Iris and Eddie running towards us.

"What happened?" Joe asked "Harry said that Barry died"

"He did but as you can see he's not," Cisco said "Come on let's give them some space" Cisco and the rest of them walk out of the Med Bay and it's just me and Barry.

"I'm so sorry Barry this is all my fault" I told him

"Caitlin, it's not your fault"

"Yes, it is. If I hadn't escaped you would have been finding but I let you almost die. I don't know if I could have lived if you had of died."

"Cait, I'm not dead and it's not your fault"

Christmas Day

Barry's POV

"Hey Cait, are you ready for the party?" I asked

"Almost I just need to grab something" She replied. As I waited for Caitlin to be ready, I saw her walk out of her room I was in awe.

"Wow, you look... amazing" As I say that I see her blush.

"Thanks. You look amazing too."

"Then let's going"

"Can we drive there? I don't really want to mess up my hair and makeup"

"Yeah, of course, I'll drive" We walk over to her car and drive over to Joe's. As we arrived is asked Caitlin "Hey Caitlin should we tell the rest of them about... us?"

"Well who knows about us so far?"

"All I know is Joe, Cisco and maybe Iris and Eddie"

"Okay let's tell them" As we walk in we are welcomed by everyone. I look over and see Cisco silently laughing.

"Hey, Cisco can I talk to you?" Both of us walk into the kitchen.

"What is it, Barry?" Cisco asked. I pull out my gift to Caitlin which is a key.

"A key? Did you get a place?"

"Yeah and we've decided to tell people about... us"

"How do you think they will react?"

"Well the only ones who won't be reacting would be you, Joe and maybe Iris and Eddie, but I would think that they wouldn't be surprised. We have a lot in common. Anyways do you know if Professor Stein and Jackson will make it?"

"I don't know. They've gone radio silent." We look over towards the door to see Caitlin standing there.

"I think it's time Barry," Caitlin says. As we walk back to the family room Cisco sat back down we got everyone's attention.
