Author’s Note: Welcome to my first Flash story, Powering Up.
My name is Cynthia Allen and I am a metahuman.
To the outside world I am an ordinary forensic profiler but secretly, with the help of my brother Barry, and my friends at Star Labs, we fight crime and stop other metahumans like me. This is my story, but let’s start at the beginning.
However, before I start at the beginning of my metahuman crime fighting story, I want to start at the beginning of my human story. Even though my brother is two years older than me, Since our mother was murdered, and our father was wrongly accused of her death I have always tried to protect Barry, even though he is two years older than me. Even before that, I tried to protect him. I remember my mother saying to me, “Barry is your brother and that means he’s your family. Family protects each other. Promise me you will always protect your family Cynthia.”
“I promise mommy,” I had said. Bullies at school would pick on Barry because he was smart and not good at sports, so I learned to defend myself and Barry quickly. Barry didn’t always like that.
But another thing my mother always said to us is that, “It’s better to have a good heart than fast legs.” I have always tried to have a good heart, and I know Barry has as well. So, my metahuman story starts a short time before I got my powers.
Author’s Note 2: I know it is super short but it is only a prologue and the next chapter will be up soon. Please tell me what you think. Thanks to my beta tj6james. I don’t own The Flash.
