Seeing the dull swell of your ankle, Bruce visibly snapped into medical doctor-mode, motioning for the Captain to bring you further into the room. Steve was careful not to let your ankle get hit on anything on the way in. He set you down gently on top of the kitchen island as Dr. Banner pulled in front of you on a stool with a medkit they kept under the sink. You kept your eyes on your hands which were fidgeting with the edge of your thick gray woolen sweater.
They had to know.
How could they not know by now?
Not that you had willingly given them any hints or anything–
Were all the meetings with Cap just some weird way of giving you a false sense of security?
That would suck because you were really starting to like him and–
There was no other reason for them to bring you all the way to the Tower for this.
They’re like super smart geniuses and super spies, THEY HAVE TO KNOW BY NOW.
The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. Beatrix Potter. London and New York: Frederick Warne and Co., n.d. First edition, third printing (March 1905).
“One morning a little rabbit sat on a bank. He pricked his ears and listened to the trit-trot, trit-trot of a pony. A gig was coming along the road; it was driven by Mr. McGregor, and beside him sat Mrs. McGregor in her best bonnet. As soon as they had passed, little Benjamin Bunny slid down into the road, and set off—with a hop, skip, and a jump—to call upon his relations, who lived in the wood at the back of Mr. McGregor’s garden.”
