This Might Hurt

"This is like the 100th cold lead we've had." Sam groans as we run from the HYDRA soldiers shooting at us.

In any other occasion we would've certainly fought the soldiers, but currently it's just me and Sam following yet another cold lead towards Bucky in the past year.

"Gotta say, he was always good at hide and seek." I tell him as we both drop down and slide towards the underground tunnel before throwing the last bomb towards the soldiers.

The bomb goes off and blocks the entrance with rubble as Sam and I keep running. "This is..what? like the 5th HYDRA base we've accidentally encountered this year." Sam stops to catch his breath.

I do a small shrug. "Probably, and I told you that you didn't have to come with me." I tell him.

He rolls his eyes before sending RedWing to check the next few tunnels. "Well I have nothing else to do." He breathes out.

We sit down to catch our breaths. Sam shakes a packet of gum in front of my face. "Want some?" I give him a small smile and take a piece.

I lean my head back and close my eyes to the pure darkness of my thoughts. It's been almost a year since I last saw him, since I last heard his voice. Every night before I close my eyes, all I see are his blue eyes full of mixed emotions of a broken soul. Some nights I have nightmares from the train incident.

"Incoming Call." Liz's voice silently echoes throught the tunnel, interrupting my thoughts.

"From who?" I ask her confused, maybe it's Natasha and Steve who are currently looking for Loki's Scepter.

"Agent Phil Coulson." Liz responds.

I let out a sigh."Put him through."

"Ms.Raven, glad to see you still alive." Coulson greets causing me to scoff. "Says the man whom I tought was dead til a few months ago." I tell him, since he has been helping the rest of the Avengers look for Loki's Sceptre.

He chukles a bit. "I'll take that one. Anyways I was calling you since you are the only one near Sokovia..."

I cut him off once I see the coordinates he sent me. "Sokovia? Coulson, I'm still like at the other side of the country."

"Yes, yet you are the only one anywhere near it." He answers.

"Yeah, but didn't you say a signal was sparked somewhere in the Artic Ice?" I ask confused. Looking for Loki's Sceptre and Bucky at the same time is stressful because all I keep getting is cold leads.

"Yes and there has also been another signal sparked somewhere in Cuba, but I already sent Stark." Coulson says,and I doubt Tony will pay attention to the mission, he might go get a few drinks and maybe some cigars before even looking.

"Alright, I'll go check it out before heading down to Africa." I sigh before ending the call.

I look over to Sam who doesn't look a bit surprised."Looks like you get a break." I tell him.

He raises an eyebrow. "You're going by yourself ?"

"Yeah, it's supposed be an abandoned base." I look over to RedWing flying back to Sam. "I'll meet you down in Africa as soon as I'm done in Sokovia."

"Coast is clear." He nods before patting Redwing. I give him a weird look. "What?"

"It's weird seeing you show that much affection for a robot bird." I tell him as we start walking out of the tunnels.

He scoffs. "Says the one who is stalking her robot assassin boyfriend."

"He only has a metal arm, Sam he's not a complete robot."
