"We should probably come up with a way to stop them." Steve said to me for the hundredth time in the past hour. I would have rolled my eyes has it been anyone else. But I just laughed and shook my head, swinging my legs.
"That's why I'm reading my file." I answered, pointing to the file in front of me. We were still on my bed, and I was lying on my front with my legs up. Steve was still seated against the headboard.
"What are you looking for?"
"Anything about my mum's abilities that could help me master my own." I mumbled absent-mindedly as I scanned the page about my birth mum. There wasn't anything about her being inhuman but more about her fighting skills, and her swift firearm abilities. Sounds familiar?

"Maybe, you could learn how to fight with powers?" Steve suggested getting up off my bed and stretching.
"But I don't know what powers I've got. All I can do is turn blue, heal, make a force field and telekinesis..." I trailed off and looked up at him with shock. "Steve you genius!" I stood up on my bed and literally three myself at him. Thankfully, he managed to catch my before I took the two of us to the floor.
"I am?" He asked, putting my down. I placed my hands on his shoulders and shook him, grinning widely.
"Steve, I have telekinesis and I can make a force field!" I almost shouted. "I can move things with my mind and throw them at people."
He nodded, catching on. "So, if we can get you to hone in on your skills, we can weaponize them."
"Exactly!" I smiled. "And we may even be able to use my own abilities to track them. They said I was of royal blood but also a hybrid right? What if my royal blood enhances my abilities?"
"Which means you're more powerful than they are. You can block them from entering your mind - You might even be able to enter theirs."
I looked at him with a wide smile almost jumping up and down. He chuckled, shaking his head. "We've got a plan! We have a plan!" Out of excitement, I did what I should have probably thought about doing before I did it. I tiptoed and I planted a quick kiss on his lips as if I did it everyday. You know one of those 'I'm-rushing-but-I-love-you-and-I'll-see-you-later' kisses? That's what I did. And it came so naturally that I nearly turned away from him as if it never happened. But I didn't. I just looked up at him with this apologetic and shocked expression, whilst his face was a mixture of confusion and disbelief.

"Oh my god, I'm so sorry." Was what I was supposed to say. But I just stammered, the two of us not saying anything.
"We should have seen that coming." He said finally, smiling shyly.
"So, you're not mad?" I asked, biting my lip.
He chuckled, raising his brows. "Why would I be?" He said quietly, unable to make eye contact with me. I stayed quiet for a bit and then chewed the insight of my cheek. Perhaps I had to stop waiting for him to make a move, the humble man out of time. I was about to make a move when the door opened and Lily poked her head through.

"Am I interrupting anything?" she smiled apologetically. I smiled back, taking a step back from Steve.
"Nope, not at all." I shrugged. "What's wrong?"
"Oh, nothing, the others were leaving and they were insisting that you go with them. Something to do with training and research."
"Then we'll be down," Steve said, stepping towards the door. "I'll let you get ready." He nodded, still not making eye contact with me. He and Lily left and I was very close to hitting my head against the door.

As if I couldn't have humiliated myself any further? I kissed him absent-mindedly and now I've made things awkward. How fantastic.

Once again, at the Avengers Tower, I was bring treated as if I wasn't there. Like my decision was bases on their very strong opinions. I ended up just staring off into he distance out the window and wondering where the hell I was going to start with my powers. In all honesty, I didn't know the full extent of powers. I know that I can make things move, I can protect myself, I can heal real quick and I turn blue and see-through. But what if I had powers like the Shadow did? What if I could get into the minds of others as well, and read their minds? Imagine that, being able to know what Steve was really thinking when I kissed him earlier. Bring able to know what the others really wanted me to, which was probably to own myself up to them so they didn't kill anyone else.
