Half

Work Text:

She thinks she's half a person now. The others, these Avengers, they don't understand what it's like to lose someone else and it's your limb, your heart, the same person living beside you from before the first moments you can remember, who embraced you in your cradle and shared your air and breath. She thinks they don't understand what it's like to lose the other half of you because you were born together and never meant to live alone.

She takes a sharp breath and it's painful, making her chest ache, because there's no one to release it for her.
