    Summary

    “How can you not love this stuff? C’mon, it’s Baby Yoda with a little Cupid bow and arrow!”

    “Put that down and quit squawking about it. Someone might hear you and think I’m with you.”

    “I’m buying it,” Clint told Bucky as he chucked the tacky centerpiece into the cart. “Keep standing there with a stick up your ass.”

    Summary

    Clint is only a couple of sips into his cardboard cup of coffee, his brain barely out of neutral, which is probably why it takes him so long to realize that some damn psycho is trying to kidnap his dog.

    Excerpt:

    “I’m not some charity case,” Bucky says pugnaciously.

    “I didn’t think you were,” Clint answers back readily enough. “I mean, I can tell you’re fucked up for sure, but of the two of us, I’m probably the bigger disaster. My sleep schedule is shit, and I drink coffee straight from the pot. I sing in the shower even though I’m deaf as fuck. I have arrows everywhere because I’m an archer — did I tell you that? And I was raised in a literal circus, so I’m not exactly domestic. Let’s see, what else?” He squints down at the ground, rubbing the back of his neck. “Oh, yeah, I won the building in a poker game with the Russian mafia and every once in awhile they show up and try to take it back, but usually I handle it, no problem. Uh...”

    Clint happens to looks up and Bucky’s eyes are wide, his mouth hanging open. Clint’s hand freezes where he’s rubbing the back of his neck, suddenly embarrassed. Yeah, when you put it all out there at once, it doesn’t sound so good.

    Summary

    “Someone hurt you, Clint?”

    It’s so surprising Clint almost spills his drink on the way to his mouth. Maybe not so much the question, because much as he’s trying to hide it Clint probably does look beat to hell, but more the soft, gentle way the guy asks it. Like he really cares about the answer. Cares about Clint.

    For a moment Clint feels himself teetering on the edge — the horrors of the mission clogging up his throat as if they are going to come spilling out in a tearful confession to the first fucking stranger who’d asked.

    He claws it back, biting his tongue hard to keep it still. He smiles instead, even though he’s sure the smile comes out a little twisted.

    “Not as much as I hurt ‘em back,” he finally says, and that’s just enough truth to settle his stomach a little.

    Bucky nods as if that’s good enough for him, and takes a long, thoughtful pull of his beer. Clint watches his throat work, the way those plush lips wrap around the bottle. He hopes to hell he hasn’t blown this already.

    Bucky wipes his mouth with the back of his hand and sets his empty bottle deliberately on the bar. “Okay,” he says. “You got a place?”

    Summary

    The target follows the same route every day and the Asset stopped following him on it after the first three days.

    Now he waits here, comfortably ensconced in a tree with a clear line of sight into the apartment’s living room.

    Steve Rogers peers down at his tablet as the television plays in the background. The show appears to be somewhat puzzlingly about dogs who are also police officers, and the Asset finds himself drawn into the plot against his will. He frowns at the screen as one of them is injured stopping a bank robbery.

    “Don’t worry, it’s just a flesh wound,” a voice says, startlingly close.
