‘Why does this school not make a fuss over fantastic female athletes? I didn’t realize we were still in the goddamn dark ages…’ Leanne muttered.
Her daughter’s win in the past weekend’s track meet in more than one category didn’t get so much as a congratulations tweet from the school. She was normally used to this kind of business, but today she was intolerant. She felt sorry for the person who tried to argue with her.
Why had she agreed to this again? She had not gone a legit date in… well, it had been a while, hadn’t it? Better not to think about it, it would just lead to headaches. And, Carol would rather not to be plagued by headaches tonight. That would be the best. And, considering it was just a pizza place, she wasn’t that dressed up either. Besides, he had seen her just what? Three hours ago? So, did it really matter? Regardless, she pulled her Air Force t-shirt down over her jeans and found a booth to sit in once she realized Mister Parker wasn’t here yet.
She honestly shouldn’t have been surprised, yet she was. SHIELD was gone, and the infrastructure that had once kept the world safe was now… in pieces. Empires fell everyday, but she had never in a million years though SHIELD would fall to HYDRA, or that her friends would be the ones facing the empire alone. As reckless as Carol could be, she felt that plan was particularly reckless. Of course, she understood. Who was really able to be trusted?
Swirling the milky brown liquid in the cup, Carol leaned her cheek into her hand and sighed. She had the thought to find Steve or Natasha, but her instincts told her not to. They would find her when the time was right. Seeking them out wouldn’t end well. Actually, it would just probably end with her being suspected of being a traitor. Never be too eager to prove your innocence. So, Carol would wait. Not like she was hiding, period. So, with a soft sigh, she just took another drink of coffee and leaned back in her chair, staring up at the sky. “–Maybe I’ll go for a patrol later.”
Moving was an experience she was relearning with gritted teeth. The battle was over, and had been over for days, and this was the first time she actually dared to get up. Even then, as far as the Elf got was sitting up. And the pain that shot through her from her stomach and side was enough to make the room spin.
Hearing the tent open, dark eyes raised and she was momentarily surprised. “Bard–What are you doing here? Aren’t there…ah, other matters to attend to?” At least her glamour was back. But, the thought that it had faded after she was hurt was terrifying. The thought that he had seen the scars was even more terrifying. “Is… everything alright?”
Well, this place was huge. Not a far cry from the mansion Stark had for the Avengers, but, it was still impressive. Especially when she thought back to where she grew up. Blue eyes took in the entire facade of the manor before she realized she was supposed to be knocking–or something. But, Carol couldn’t help it, honestly. It was her instinct to scope out her surroundings. She hated surprises… and those usually ended up being harmful to her. Pushing a piece of blonde hair back into its place, she stepped up to the door and pushed what she could only assume was a doorbell. Now to wait.
And hope that she didn’t make an entire fool of herself.
