Chapter One: Joe and Iris
There was a saying growing up, Soulmates in blue and friends in black. Now everyone has friends, but the one who's name was inked into your skin is said to be the one friend who'd never disappear and would do anything for you. These names could come and go, most appear after you've known someone for a long time. But for a certain group of people they've always had Barry written neatly across their skin in black. When someone meets their Platonic Soulmate they black ink on their skin gives off some type of signal once they touch. For your actual soulmates the blue ink on your skin will shine brightly before turning blood red.
It was the day after Joe watched Henry Allen get sent to jail and Nora Allen's body get taken to the morgue that he met his platonic soulmate in the form of eleven year old Barry Allen.
For as long as he could remember Joe always had the name Barry written in black ink right below the red Francine on top of his heart. Joe didn't even know it was this Barry, eleven year old Barry who just watched his mom get murdered, until after leading Barry into the guest room and just as the kid was about to fall asleep he went and brushed the hair from his forehead in return getting a feeling of electricity shooting across his chest the moment their skin touched and he just knew that Barry was the Barry he was destined to meet.
It wasn't until the next morning when his baby girl tackled him in a hug out of excitement and started screaming to him about feeling electricity and about Barry that he realized she had the name Barry in black ink on her hip. He never knew because Francine had always been the one to help her get dressed and by the time she left and Iris was seven she was more than capable of dressing herself. And not to mention no one really had their names until they were sixteen at least.
When Iris told him she'd had Barry written on her for as long as she could remember he was shocked. Iris asked Barry about him having any names but at that point in time Barry was still refusing to talk, or eat.
