“So” starts Tony “we all know each other's backstories now”

“No,” Steve disagrees “Hawkeye has not shared yet”

“Guys,” Natasha interrupts feeling her partner tense up beside her “let it go, he already said he didn't want to share”

“Come on” continues Tony not leaving the subject alone “we already talked about Bruce’s abusive parents, My abusive dad, Steve’s war times and how you were groomed to be an assassin by the ‘red room’ when you were six, how bad can his be”
