WELCOME BACK, BABIES
doodling all self-indulgently up in here tonight. I am very much excited for the new Avengers Assemble cartoon now after the first episode.
One day we’ll be in a Marvel movie, sitting there as something doesn’t feel right. and as the credits start to roll we’ll know what it is. It will flash up on screen and our hearts will break. “In loving memory of Stan Lee”. There was no cameo in that movie. And there never will be again.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent]: Aw that sounds adorable. I miss you both so much. [Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent]: Totally not. It's hott.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent] Yeah he keeps looking for you. I will have to send you a new picture he’s gotten big since you’ve left.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent]
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent] Well… I’m glad you like it. Did you steal one of mine I can’t find my old Colver shirt.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent]: I just want to say that I love you, I miss you and that I can't wait to come home and see your dashing face.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent] I miss you too, I’ve taken to having Reb in the bed with me so I’m not alone and I have one of your dirty shirts you left on your pillow.
[Encrypted Message] [Status: Sent] Don’t laugh at me.
[Encrypted Message][Status: Sent]: Brucie bear. Got some time to spare for your little bird?
Buce smiled when he picked up his phone after it had buzzed. Typing in his code he sent his own message back.
[Encrypted Message][Status: Sent]: For you Tweetie always. What can I do for my lover man.
He knew that cough, not everyone would be able to tell the difference. With a huge smile he shifted in his seat, looking out the window as the scenery flew by, getting him that much closer to his boyfriend. Every time a sound was made he held his breath, hoping Bruce wouldn’t realize what he was doing. That would really ruin everything. “I have plenty of time, my darling. And it is not just some other day, hun. It’s your birthday and I’m going to make it the best one ever. As good as I can of course.” Clint hated hearing Bruce down like this, especially on his birthday, but he perked up a little remembering this would fix it right up.
“Aw sweets? That’ll be nice for you and I know.. You would get some if I could send them. But even if I could send them, it wouldn’t be the same. I wish I could be there, sweetheart, I really do.” The agent really wanted to lay it in thick, make the surprise even more so of one. Shifting once again in his seat to get comfy in the godawful seats, and sighed, “That sounds fun and a good idea. That bag does look a little worse for wear.”
Listening to the sounds on the other side of the phone, it made him homesick. “Uh, the mission? Still in recon phase. ‘S why I can talk to you all day, old man.” the archer chuckled softly, “So it’s pretty boring right now. just waiting out the anticipation. Not much else is going on. Wish they had flew me in when things actually got started, but it’s too late now.” Barton’s heart sank a little, almost wanting to give up his secret so the physicist wouldn’t be so down, especially today. “I miss you too, Bruce. More than anything and I can;t wait to be back with you.”
“After forty-four years Clint and at least ten spent on the run in some form. It just really feels like any other day to me. But Thank you for trying to make it special, even so far away. Last person to make a fuss over it was Betty…” He paused. Betty wasn’t someone they normally brought up or even talked about. It was almost a strict no ex rule between them really. Unspoken but still never really done. Trying to recover from it he thinks quickly. “But I have Reb to keep me company this year in your absence and our four legged child will do. He smells to I think I might try and give him a bath tonight.”
Paying he left the store. Now well past mid day the grey afternoon stated to heat as the sun started to come out from behind the clouds. “Sounds like its going to be a long mission. One of the ones that might take you away a month or more.” He hated that Fury or Hill or who ever was in charge would keep putting Clint on such long missions. Maybe if he made an appeal to one of them that Clint being home helped him cope with the other guy they would give him shorter missions. Not that he thought it would really work but what could it hurt to try. Other then having to talk to an organization he would really rather stay far far FAR away from.
“Think they might let us have a skype call or two for a conjugal.” He was trying to make it more light hearted. He had to give the archer something happier then a grumpy old man today. For his boyfriend He could try that. “I have to ask you, if I had asked you to marry me before you left.. what would you have said?” Bruce had been wondering that since the agent had left for the base and out. Since he had really just chickened out in that moment.
I'm sure we could, kiddo. This one's still havin' trouble, but I help her when I can. And I guess I really can't complain either. She may be a weirdo, but she's my weirdo.
Well know she isn’t alone and we will be here for her if you need help with her. Ape’s had a good bit of life experience.
