Spidey's Last Vow

Chapter Text

         "I love you, and I'm with you till the end of the line."
         I feel like it's odd that I thought about those words. My memory was beginning to fade, but those words stuck out to me.
         Names flashed through my mind: Peter. May. Ned. Flash. MJ. Tony. Pepper. What significance did they have to me? All I knew was my name - Star-Wolf - and. . . . him. The horribly scarred man that got me into this mess. He said his name was Yon-Rogg, but I couldn't shake the feeling that he works for the government.
         Anyway, when Yon-Rogg brought me out of the freezing tube, he tied me to a chair. Fear coursed through my veins. He held a red iPad-looking gizmo with a black star emblazoned on the screen. At first he just looked at me, appraising me. Then he opened the book and started speaking a language that I miraculously understood. He said, "Longing. Rusted. Seventeen. Daybreak. Furnace. Nine. Benign. Homecoming. One. Freight Car."
         Some freaky presence took over, and I was suddenly trapped in my own mind, watching as Yon-Rogg smirked and said, "Hello, Star-Wolf." The presence at the forefront of my mind only said, "Ready to comply" in that strange language. Yon-Rogg handed me an iPad, which I opened with a slim, long-fingered hand. The first thing I saw was a picture of a Skrull disguised as a teenage boy dressed in jeans and a black Imagine Dragons T-shirt. His brown hair was a little messy, and his eyes were chocolate brown and huge. I couldn't shake the feeling that I knew this guy the Skrull was posing as.
         "His name is Talos. He is currently posing as Peter Parker, whose codename is Spider-Man, and he sided with Tony Stark on the issue of the Sokovia Accords. Security cameras show that he lives with May Parker in Queens, New York. Your mission is to observe him as much as you can. Find out where he goes to school, what he does after his nightly patrols of Queens. Observe his schedule, his mannerisms, and his classmates in and out of his extracurriculars. Do you understand?" I said, "Yes, sir. I'll give you a report before midnight tomorrow. It's a long flight from here to C-53."
         And that's how I reunited with my supposed longtime crush and met the Avengers.
