Star Spangled (Captain America)
I shot up, drenched in a cold sweat. I don't think you really understand how awful it is to have vivid nightmares, being forced to relive your nightmare of a life, as often as it happens.
"I can't run."
"You can't what?" Tony asks. I see the what little kindness and faith in me dissolve off his face. It's raw confusion and disbelief now.
"I can't run," I say sheepishly. Did I just mess up my own chances of having a place to stay? Did I just sabotage myself?
The meeting started and I'm sitting out in the hall. Yes, I'm eavesdropping. What? I want to know what's going to happen to me as much as the next person.
Unfortunately, my hearing isn't anything special, so I can only catch small snippets of the discussion.
"-Run-.... -Pointless to have her-..." I hear Tony's voice say in an angry tone. That's not good.
"-Her because if she leaves then I'm afraid that-....-too. She's super smart. We could use her help," Bruce says, and I feel pride swell in my chest. Bruce thinks I'm smart. Wait- Oh. He's talking about Hannah.
