As he’s lacing up his boots he suddenly wonders if maybe this little care package is compliments of Nat, even though she was expected to be gone a month or more. He glances over at Santiago, sitting on the other side of the hold, arms crossed and expression stony, or maybe just a little airsick. If he’s been on assignment in the area he wouldn’t necessarily know if Natasha’s made it back to the carrier yet. Besides, some of the younger agents are a little leery of talking about the Widow, even when she’s not around, lest something be said that smacks of unprofessionalism. Ever since Agent Neuman… well. The less said about that, the better, really.
Because NATASHA ROMANOFF WILL BEAT YOUR ASS. AND YOU WILL LIKE IT.
