    Summary

    Laura hadn't fallen for Clint first; she had been struck first, though. And, yes, she had heard all the possible jokes about Cupid and his arrows, thank you very much for your contribution.

    But it was still true: she hadn't fallen first. Laura had been struck, first, curious about this boy—distracted, rumpled, so very human—and his perfect, perfect aim. You don't get perfect marksmanship by being born with it.

    Gods are born, maybe, but Steve Rogers went to army drafting station after station. Tony woke up in a cave with a box of scraps and didn't just roll over and die. Sam pushed himself through basic, through pararescue training, and taught himself to fly. Little Natalia Romanova, after a childhood without choices, had taken SHIELD's offered employment papers and signed them Natasha.

    Laura liked to pay attention to how people got to who they were.

    And Clint—Laura sat forward the first time she saw him, this circus kid who gulped from a stained coffee cup before stumbling onstage and proceeding to take eighteen perfect shots, with three different bows, four of them without even looking.

    Laura leaned forward. These things were not gifts.
