Tim felt his eyes begin to open, and the world he had last seen as fiery, burning chaos

had disappeared. The air around him was…peaceful.

As his vision came into focus he saw a figure above him. A woman, with a sweet face and chocolate hair. He recognised her.

"Ka…Kate?" he struggled to say. "I-Is that you?"

"I've been waiting for you to show up for a while," she whispered, and her all-too recognisable voice confirmed his uncertainty.


"You were blown up, McGee," she told him softly.


She sighed. "You were my sweet superhero too, Tim." He felt a ghost of a kiss to his cheek and his eyes fluttered shut again.

When he opened them, he saw the world he had left: fiery, burning chaos.

'I guess it wasn't my time yet,' he thought.
