A/N:A giant “Thank you” to @17sullivan who read my idea for this fic, then read this chapter and is an all around wonderful person. Thank you for the push love!
And to the anon who told me this was one of their fave things I’ve written, I had no idea anyone really cared about it, but since you mentioned it, here is an update :)
The song in this chapter is “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns n’ Roses
After the shouting had died down, Wanda had been brought into the lab. Most of the team had left then, wanting to give her space, but Vision and Steve both stayed. You hadn’t been sure where to go or what to do, but before you left the lab, you studied the image of Pietro Maximoff on the holoscreen. You made note of any features you could about the room that his cradle was in. There had been nothing in any of the computer files that had told you where he was. You assumed that he was within the compound, since Tony would never trust anyone else to watch over someone that important, but you had no idea where he could be. Fortunately, you’d made a habit out of exploring the compound.
In the time that you had been living with them, Vision, Tony, and Rhodey usually had something going on. And while they all did their best to include you, there were some things that you couldn’t be involved in. So when they were busy, you explored. As a kid, you had explored as a method of survival; when you needed to hide, you needed to know where to hide. You hadn’t had many friends, but if you had you would have crushed them at hide and seek. As you grew up, the people would come looking for you became better at searching, so you became better at hiding. That skill came largely from wandering and exploring. You wouldn’t say that you knew the compound better that Tony, but you were damn close.
So you wandered. The room that Pietro was in wasn’t a lab though it had a lot of lab equipment in it; it had the same flooring as your room; it looked about the same size too, but as far as you knew that there weren’t any doors that led to that room, otherwise you would have stumbled upon it by now. So you were looking for a hidden room, behind a hidden door. No biggie.
