    Summary

    “I didn’t come for a visit.”

    “Well, that’s not surprising at all,” Clint says sarcastically. “Why did you come, then? To tell me the world is on fire? That there’s another big problem no one can solve?”

    “Not exactly,” Natasha says evasively. “Something came up -- something that I can’t take care of on my own.”

    “You’re not on your own,” Clint points out. “You’ve got Sam and Steve.”

    “They can’t help me with this,” Natasha says, and Clint raises both eyebrows.

    “But a house arrest father on the run in the middle of home improvements can?”

    Summary

    “My daddy’s a superhero!” Lila Barton would proclaim loudly in the supermarket, at a restaurant, in the park. Three years old, bright-eyed and a winning smile of innocence, she would announce that sentence to anyone who walked in their direction while Laura would quickly step in and assure whoever was listening that her daughter had a funny way with words. Cooper tried to help steer the conversation from time to time, attempting to be a helpful big brother, but as a little boy he often found himself too amused by the situation to be of much assistance.

    Clint, for his part, loved it. Lying in bed after everyone else in the house had gone to sleep, he told Laura that of course he understood why they needed to be concerned about his daughters outspoken personality and what it could mean when she wasn’t so careful or when they weren’t around to do damage control. But Laura could easily see his chest puffing up in pride, and she knew that despite his serious reassurances, he was secretly ecstatic that his daughter thought of her otherwise civilian parents as the superheroes that they really were.

    Summary

    “Oh great,” Shuri says, rolling her eyes. “Another know-it-all white girl --”

    “No,” Natasha interrupts, stepping forward before Shuri can decide to walk away. “That’s not why I’m here. Please, can I come in?”

    Summary

    The rational part of Natasha says that he’s fine, that he’s safe, that he’s just doing what he does best –- fucking around Europe, maybe Switzerland, in that old bolthole he swears doesn’t exist anymore, possibly with some drink and some semblance of time but not enough time to know that he should be paying attention to the world around him while he drinks his nightmares into a stupor.

    That’s the rational part, at least.

    The other part says that she knows she’s wrong.
