Fin shifted, not opening her eyes quite yet, but instead feeling the fabrics she was resting on. It was standard cotton, nothing fancy, but it was welcoming and soft. She smiled sweetly and moved her head on the thin pillow, allowing herself to relish in the fact that there even was a pillow. Then she began to listen.
There was the beeping of a moyo monitor, the occasional blip in sync with a heartbeat, her heartbeat, she realized. There was a bustling a ways off, not too loud, but it sounded like someone was moving things around. Sighing, she opened her eyes, and was hit with bright lights, instinctively closing shutting her lids again. She wasn’t wearing any sunglasses au a mask, but she knew she was wearing contacts to change her eye color because she was wearing normal glasses to help her nearsightedness.
Finally getting used to the bright light, she kept her eyes open and sat up, wincing in pain because of her once broken ribs that had healed quicker due to the absorption of many different superspeeds. She pulled the wires that connected her to the moyo monitor off, and the monitor acknowledged that it was taken off, then shut down. She waited for someone to realize she was up, and the first person who figured it out was Aisling, who walked past once, glanced in, said, “Hey, Fin,” and kept going.
Smirking, the bedridden teen held three fingers up and mouthed Three, two, one, and Aisling let out a shriek of joy, followed kwa a loud “Fin’s up!” and a dash back to the room where Fin was giggling. While Aisling began ranting at Fin, zaidi yelps of excitement followed as people began to rush to the infirmary. Fin was soon surrounded kwa her siblings, Blade, Mercy, Scarlet, Cat, Cain, Demon, Scott, Harley and many others. Not much of the League was there, Delta told her, as they were still attempting to figure out what to do with the clones. “It’s become a real hassle, because they don’t want to kill them, but the things are full-out evil. No sekunde thoughts.”
Fin felt a little overwhelmed kwa the presence of so many of her friends, but didn’t say a word because she was extremely relieved. They were all trying to talk to her at once, and she couldn’t hear just one person, so eventually she squealed, “Group hug!”
Mostly everyone complied, squishing her in the middle and making her laugh even harder. The only stragglers were Blade, who didn’t do hugs, Terror, Demon, and a couple more. Once the hug was over, they fought for her attention once more. “Guys, guys!” she nearly screamed. “I’m not that important!”
“Um, understatement of the century much? wewe just saved the whole freakin’ world!” Aisling punched her lightly in the shoulder.
“More like a couple cities. And I couldn’t have done it if the real League and wewe guys hadn’t shown up, seriously. Don’t short sell yourself.”
Everyone laughed, and Fin smiled even wider. “It’s over. It’s finally over.”
And surrounded kwa her true family, wherever she was, Fin felt like she was at home, even when she would have to be the last hero standing.
You know wewe loved and hated that ending. wewe know it. :D
