WIP?: No, one-shot

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is the perfect mix of action, heart-rending backstory, and slow building of trust. (Plus, a couple of great bits with Coulson.)

It's been a long time since anybody has used her real name. "My friends call me Natasha," she says.

Barton raises an eyebrow. "You don't have friends. You only have assets you haven't killed yet." His tone is mild, amused, and all the sharper for it.

"How long did you wait for me?" she asks. "In Amsterdam. You did wait."

He hesitates just a shade too long. "No," he says. "I didn't."

Why This Must Be Read: This story is just going to fucking rip your heart out and stomp on it.

She sits in his room, on his bed, amongst his things, her bare feet tapping against another pile of forgotten laundry. She lets him sit close because he knows not to ask if she is okay. He knows that it is pointless even to speak.

Her feet tap and her toes curl and her eyes are still lost and faraway. Her lips press together and purse slightly then relax and that’s as much expression as she will give him to work with today. He takes it as a sign, figures that it’s as good or as worse a time as any time else, and reaches for her hand.

She snatches her fingers away as if they are burnt. He smiles like his own skin isn’t equally as singed and curls his hand into a fist.
