Director Fury had me come up to his office and Special Advisor Carter’s there handing me a new assignment.’
‘Me,’ Barton says, because he’s not stupid, and Laura wouldn’t give him the indignity of thinking he was. ‘They want to give me a new handler.’
‘No, a partner.’
‘I’m not a babysitter. No offence, doll-face, but I don’t have a partner.’
In which Agent Laura Harcourt is assigned to partner resident liability Clint Barton in his early years as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. They say manners maketh man and all that, but maybe it might be something a little more tangible than manners.
Like a pretty girl with dreams of a farmhouse and a love of pizza, armed with bad puns and a wicked left hook.
