Tony

"His uncle makes the higher orders... Nice." Tony said, not quite as surprised as he probably should have been.

"Yeah..." Steve replied. "But I need to talk to him about something, so please, if you see him when he comes back, tell him to meet me here."

"Are you kicking us out?" Natasha asked mockingly while raising an eyebrow.

"Yes, our dear captain, are you?" Tony said, playing along.

"I'm feeling quite offended over here." Clint added dramatically.

"Don't even get me started with the pain it causes me." Bruce said and put the back of his hand on his forehead.

"Yes, of course I am kicking you out. You're all insufferable and this is my glorious private place. Except for Percy, but he never bothers me and at least puts the gym to great use." At this point, Steve had everyone almost at the gym's door.

Tony suddenly spread his arms wide, blocking the door for everyone.

"I'm not leaving until you tell us what you want to talk to Percy about." Everyone thought about it for a second and seemed to decide if was worth a shot. 

Natasha stood near Tony and crossed her arms. "What is so secret that you can't tell us, Captain?" She asked.

"It's nothing." He replied elusively.

"Oh, yeah, sorry. I just didn't know that 'nothing' also meant 'hiding things from my team'. My bad." She said sarcastically.

"No, but seriously, what is it?" Bruce asked curiously.

"For Drama Queen, also known as Natasha, it's nothing important for you. It's about his technique. I want to know where he learned this and why, because let's face it: he's good. But you can't tell me his mama taught him how to wrestle when he was five, or that he learned something so deeply because knives are pretty. No, if you saw him then you know he learned it for something serious, maybe- and probably- for self-defense, so I want to know what was he training to defend himself from." 

"Fine. But then tell us what he said." Natasha said.

"Yes, of course I will." Steve answered almost offended.

"Oh, and also ask him his opinion on war. He said some suspiscious things, like being, and I quote, 'done with war'. He also said that us knowing all about him without enough trust could cause a war, so we can understand that he is important in an aspect we don't yet know. We can guess it's something relating his family considering the fact that 'his uncle makes the higher orders', and 'higher' is more than SHIELD." Tony added. Everyone looked at him strangely. "What?"

"With your superior stupidity and egocentricity, I tend to forget you're actually a genious." Steve answered him.

"Well duh"

"I want to ask him something too." Bruce piped in. "And, before you ask, it's nothing relating war. I want to know why he gave everyone a job but me. Did he forget or am I just useless?" He asked half jockingly and half serious.

"I, by no means, meant to offend you." A voice said from the windowsill.

It was evidently funny for Percy to watch his teammates jump in surprise at his sudden apparition, save Natasha who was basically a stealth goddess and noticed him arriving.

Tony called his suit, Steve positioned himself for a hand-to-hand combat, Clint took a bow, Thor called his hammer, and Bruce just looked freaked out. Natasha only rested lightly against the wall and checked her nails.
