    Summary

    This is an essay, not fic. A while back I remember saying that I was going to be writing a little bit about Beauty and the Beast stories and Red and Liz and the Lizzington ship. Since I needed to reconnect with the characters right now, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity. [This is meta, not fiction. Assumes a Red/Liz pairing bias.]

    Summary

    After the Red Star mission in Volgograd, Clint had pestered anyone and everyone for information on the red-haired woman. Sato swears he never saw her – but he never saw the AK-47 guy either so Clint disregards him. His backup and the EMTs also say they saw no one other than the bodies of Belova and several guards – which means, at least, that the little girl got away before anyone could get their hands on her, Clint hoped she was alright. Then Bobbi, as part of the mission review, had gone over any and all available recordings from the warehouse and surrounding area and said there was no red-haired woman anywhere on those either.

    But there had been. Clint was sure.

    Summary

    To be honest I hate summaries, so bare with me on my attempts.

    He didn't know where he was and how he got there (that seems to happen more often then not). But what he does know is that he certainly got there at the wrong time. Or so the voice keeps telling him.

    "You just can't seem to stay out of trouble can you?"
    "Who the hell are you!?"
