NATHANIEL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AS HE DRAGGED WANDA THROUGH THE COMPOUND. If there was something important, he would've had a vision about it. He should've had a vision about it. It wasn't like him to have his mind completely vacant of something, that should've been there. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that he had seen the ghost of Taylar, or perhaps his reunion with Wanda. The Clairvoyant's mind was blurred, and he didn't know what could have been behind it. He didn't.

As they turned down a vacant corridor, his eyes landed on the room that James was leading the two to. Nathaniel narrowed his eyes as he realized that they were approaching a hospital room, and his heart sank. He didn't want to think about the possibility that Fawn had taken her own life because of her state. He didn't know if he could handle the loss of a girl, that he considered being a baby sister. The man squeezed Wanda's hand tightly as they grew closer and closer to the room until James pushed open the door.

All of the Avengers were inside. All of them gathered around the table in the middle of the room.

No one looked over their shoulder to see Wanda and Nathaniel. They kept their gaze on what was in front of them. Nathaniel slipped away from Wanda as he approached the front of the group. And as he made it closer to the front, he noticed that Grayson and Tony were the two at the front. Grayson standing behind Tony with her hand resting on his shoulder, squeezing it comfortingly.

Nathaniel's lips parted as he glanced at the two of them before his eyes fell on the table. That was when he saw the familiar red hair, that wasn't as vibrant as it once had been. His eyes widened as he took in the familiar frame of the girl that the Avengers had all trained. Had all gotten to know and took care of as if she was their own. She was special to the team, she was one of their youngest members.

Like most of them, she was an orphan, that was trusted with Tony Stark as their legal guardian. She was a very impressive teenager, with skills that not all girls her age should've had at her age. She was a threat to anyone who was on the opposing side, and the Avengers taught her how to control herself and her anger.

Nathaniel took his eyes off of the girl, the state she was in wasn't what he wanted to see. Wanda stepped forward, lacing her fingers with Nathaniel as she pulled him closer to her. Nathaniel glanced down at Wanda, before pressing a kiss to her forehead. Tony and Grayson were quiet as they were in front of the table before Tony slowly stood up to face the rest of the team. No one spoke until Tony did.

"I'm sure all of you are wondering where the hell our little fighter has been over the span of the last few... years," Tony trailed off, and Grayson stepped in to comfort him as she took his hand in her own. Tony glanced down at her, before nodding his head. When he glanced back to the team, everyone had concerned expressions painted on their features. "A few days ago, we got a ping. An Agent of S.H.E.I.L.D had discovered a HYDRA base with a cryo chamber, just as Bucky had been in before. That agent discovered Mallory inside, frozen."
