i feel grown up with you in your car
Summary: She looked at him, and she thought of the months he’d spent in that other dimension, terrible and painful and lonely, his quick return to fight AIDA, and the months he’d spent back there. The same months she’d been in space. They’d all gotten out, her and the rest of the team with his help, and he’d immediately jumped in to another one of their battles. Which brought them here, to probably the first minute he’d had to breathe in way too long.
He’d been to hell and back, twice, and she could finally see the exhaustion.
“When was the last time you slept?”
Post-season 4. After spending months in space prison, Daisy and the rest of the team break out (with Robbie’s help, but with admittedly no explanation by me). Takes place after a fight to restore Shield’s reputation and dismantle any remaining confusion left behind by AIDA and the rest of the LMDs. The team finally gets a break, and Daisy worries about Robbie. (It’s just fluff, guys; it’s just fluff. I have no excuse.)
She found him in the first place she looked, not that there were that many places she thought he would go.
The driver’s seat was reclined slightly, his body relaxed against it like he wished he could sink into it. His head was tilted back, his eyes closed, and still, one of his hands rested on the steering wheel. Like he was itching to drive, just because he missed the feeling of it.
She had a vision of him, all those months ago, reaching across the gear shift to open the passenger door, telling her to get in. That was the first time she’d ever ridden in the Charger.
This time, she didn’t wait for an invitation.
