We all looked at each other. (Name) had just called S.H.E.I.L.D and we all knew something was really wrong. After a few moments of silence everybody was looking at me. “What?” I my eyes flicked around the room. “Aren’t you gunna go after her?” Tony asked. I blinked in surprise. “Why would she want me to save her?” I asked. “God Dammit Clint,” Natasha snapped, “How dense could you possibly be? You’re the one who wanted to smash Allen’s face in the most. So go do it,” “Lady Natasha is correct,” Thor agreed, “If you want to prove your love to Lady (Name) you should save her,”
Slightly shaken I got from my seat and hurried off. In my car some many things ran through my mind. Was I really that dense? Did (Name) out of everyone want me to save her? I was sure she had feelings Bruce. Sure she wasn’t fond of Big Green, but nobody really was. She and Bruce where pretty close as it was. All this wasn’t adding up in my mind. While I sat puzzling over (Name) my phone rang. “Barton speaking,” I answered the phone. “Are you at (Name) s’ yet?” it was Tony. “No. Almost,” I said, starting to worry again. “You might wanna hurry up, because we just got another call from (Name). Allen is pissed,” Tony explained. “Eh, thanks Tony,” I said, my voice shaking as I hung up.
I pulled up to the (Name)’s place. I dashed up to the front door. I heard (Name) yelp. Anger coursed through my veins. Somehow I slammed the door open. He banged against the wall, leaving a dent. I didn’t care though. The house was dark, but I could still see blood stain on the carpet. The worst part about these stains was the fact that some of them where fresh, others had been there for who knows how long. Silently, I slunk toward the back of the house.
I could hear Allen shouting at (Name). The sound of something hitting skin pounded in my ears. How dare he touch her? (Name) didn’t do anything to deserve this. I used my pent up rage, to kick down the door. The tanned brunette stood over (Name). Her (s/c) skinned face and arms where bruised and bleeding. Allen whipped around and stared at me. “Who the fuck are you?” Allen demanded. I glared at him. “Clint. Help,” (Name) squeaked, her (e/c) pools where begging. Allen turned back to her smacking her, hard. I barreled at him. I slammed him into the wall.
I held him by the collar against the wall. “I’m an Avenger,” I spat in his face. Allen’s crimson eyes widened. I punched in the face. Blood streamed out of his nose. I through him on the ground angrily. “Don’t you ever come near (Name) again,” I warned. I lifted (Name) off the floor, and carried her bridal style.
She buried her face into my chest. A sob escaped her. “Shh,” I stroked her (h/l) (h/c) hair, “It’ll be okay. I’m here now,” I took her out to my car. “Won’t I get blood in your car?” she asked shakily. “I won’t mind, it’s cleanable,” I said in a quiet tone. I took my shirt off and tore it in pieces. “Clint!” (Name) cried, “That’s your favorite shirt,” “It’s alright (Name),” I said, “I can get another,” Gently I wrapped the cloth around her wounds. She winced, tears still streaking down her face. “I’m sorry (Name),” I wiped the tears away. “Why did you come to help me?” she asked, “Aren’t you busy?” “I’m never too busy for those in need,” I said quietly, as I continued to wrap her wounds. (Name) pressed her forehead to mine, “Thank you,” she whispered. My stomach jumped up into my throat. I opened my mouth to say something, but the words couldn’t escape me.
“Clint? Can I tell me something?” she asked, not looking at me. Her (e/c) pools swirled with a nervous excitement. “You can tell me anything,” I said finishing up the wrap on her arm. “I-I love you Clint,” she said, barely above a whisper. I didn’t say anything, shock filled my body. “Oh… I…” she looked at the pavement behind me. “(Name),” I cupped her cheek gently, “I love you more than you know. That’s why I came, I knew he was hurting you,” her eyes widened. I kissed her softly on the lips. I felt her kissed back.
Then gently I kissed her each of her cuts. “Let’s get going,” I said. I hoisted her legs into the car. “Thank Clint,” she said again quietly. I smiled at her, while getting in the driver’s seat, “Hey it wasn’t problem,” She smiled back but only slightly. Her eyelids fluttered slightly and she yawned. “Go ahead and go to sleep (Name). I’ll be here when you wake up. That’s promise,” she nodded and dozed off in the car, after a few minutes.
I waited in the hospital. The other avengers where on their way know. I put my face in my hands. What if I lost her? (Name). My one love. Losing her now? I don’t think I could live that way.
I looked up. It was Natasha. The others where there to. Tony plopped down on one side of me and Steve sat on the other side. “How is she?” Tony asked. “They won’t let me see her,” I said, panic rising in my tone. Steve put his hand on my knee. “She’ll be okay. Miss. (Name) is a very tough young woman,” the blonde comforted. I smiled my gratitude to him sadly.
We all waited patiently, until the doctor finally came out. “Is a Mr. Clint Barton here?” I was on my feet before the doctor could finish his sentence. “I’m Clint Barton,” I said. “Come with me,” the doctor said beckoning me. I nodded wearily and followed him.
(Name) was awake in her room. Bruises, scars, and bandages littered her skin. “Will she be okay?” I asked. “Of course,” he smiled. I sighed with relief, “Thank you, very much,” “If you need anything go find Nurse Catherine. She was assigned to (Name)’s room,” then the doctor left. I nodded and went inside her room.
When I walked in, (Name) smiled at me. I sat in the chair next to her. I grabbed her hand. I rubbed my thumb against her bandaged hand. “How ya’ feeling?” I asked. “Sore,” she mumbled. “You’re pretty tough, you’ll be alright,” I promised. Her smile suddenly fell. “What’s wrong (Name)?” I asked, panicked again. “What am I gunna do?” she asked, “I can’t go back to Allen. It’ll be worse than ever before,” “You’ll come stay with me,” I told her. “I don’t wanna get in the way,” she protested. “(Nickname) you won’t be in the way and I will not. I repeat, I will NOT let Allen near you ever again,” I said firmly. “Thank you Clint,” that beautiful smile of (Name)’s spread across her face. I stood up and kissed her passionately. “You go Hawk!” Tony cheered behind us. I pulled away, glaring at him. “Damn billionaire,” I muttered. “Don’t you sass me!” Tony snapped his fingers. (Name) giggled. I grinned, I knew Tony said what he said to make (Name) happy.
The other Avengers and I kept (Name) company till I could take her home with me. (Name) had scars and bruises when we left the hospital, but she would get better. I mended her broken heart and help mend her broken body.
