A/N: Once more, sorry there was a bit of a wait to this chapter, but it was an absolute blast to write and I hope that comes across in the writing! Because I really did have a lot of fun with this one. And hey hey hey, look where we’re getting in the plot ; ) I’ll give you a hint: IT THICKENS

Junior might have been bouncing off the literal walls but it could have not been more opposite of the reaction that Tucker was giving Wash at that moment. His boyfriend was staring at him like he had just announced that he was going to kick him out of the apartment.
“You want Junior to be the leader?” Tucker demanded, all but throwing a bloody steak onto a plate and handing it off to the chattering alien child. “Of your ridiculous superhero team? What the fuck’s wrong with you?”
“It’s not my team, they are their own team. I’m just training and guiding them at the behest of the local government which… seems to know my identity,” Wash responded awkwardly.
“Sure that doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that, like an idiot, your codename is your last name? Seriously, Wash, who does that?” Tucker asked, throwing his hands in the air.
