Chapter 2

We were on a giant S.H.I.E.L.D. aircraft, when we were brought to where the Avengers would assemble. Dad stayed home to do some extra research, he'll be coming back soon. When we arrived on the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, Elek and I walked side by side inside to get the complete tour. This place was incredible! This would've been the best thing ever, but I found out that Agent Barton has been compromised by Loki. Natasha was doing everything she could to find him, and follow her orders.

Elek ended up wondering off to go explore while I helped Natasha try and track down Barton, but he was untraceable at the moment. It was an hour or so when Nat got an order to go and greet Captain America, so I followed Natasha outside the aircraft.

"Did S.H.I.E.L.D. get in contacted with the Hamatos?" I asked.

"Not that I was informed of." She responded as we walked up to a jet that Coulson and the one and only Captain America walked out of.

"Agent Romanoff, Ms. Starks." Coulson gave me a nod. "Captain Rogers."

"Ma'am." Rogers greeted then nodded at me. "Ms. Stark."

"Hi." Romanoff responded.

I was so star-strucked all I could do was wave.

"They need you on the bridge." Romanoff told Coulson. "They're starting the face-trace."

Coulson walked away. "See you there."

The three of us started walking. "It was quite the buzz around here, finding you in the ice. I thought Coulson was gonna swoon." Romanoff joked.

I laughed.

"Did he ask you to sign his Captain America trading cards yet?"

"Trading Cards?" Rogers asked.

"They're vintage. He's very proud." Nat smirked.

As we walked around the base outside we bumped into Dr. Banner.

"Dr. Banner!" Rogers called out getting the attention of the very nervous scientist.

They shook hands. "Yeah, hi." Then he peaked over at me then back at Rogers. "They told me you would be coming."

"Word is, you can find the Cube." Rogers got right down to business.

"Is that the only word on me?" He asked.

"Only word I care about."

"It must be strange for you, all of this." Banner motioned at the giant aircraft.

A group of soldiers jogged by. "Well, this is actually kind of familiar."

"Gentlemen, you might want to step inside a minute. It's going to get a little hard to breathe." Nat stood next to us.

We all looked over the edge of the ship as the large turbines started up. Banner looked horrified and Captain just looked plan confused. This was the team, huh?

"Is this a submarine?" Steve asked as Banner was saying how "great" of an idea that would be.

When the ship started to rise, Banner just shook his head. This wasn't going to be any better. Then we all walked inside to meet the rest of the team, or, well, some of it. Fury walked over to all of us and Rogers gave him a ten. Okay….

'They have a gym downstairs, we should go train.' Elek's voice popped into my mind before I actually saw him.

When Rogers saw him his eyes widened.

"That is Elek, Captain, he is Ms. Stark's friend. He is a part of this team." Fury explained before continuing the scan for the Cube. Then Romanoff led Banner to his lab. I got to get a peek at it before and let me tell you this Don would've had a blast.

'Let's go down.' I started head to head towards the gym with Elek when we passed the lab. Yup, it was like candy land for Donnie. I could just picture him now, staring at everything and trying to figure what everything does all at once. I laughed and followed Elek down to the gym, and it was awesome. There was plenty of room and mats to spar and punching bags and weights, this was going to be fun. Out of habit, I started stretching. Taking my time so I don't miss any muscles, and stood in front of Elek. He was ready to go way before me since he didn't have to worry about pulling a muscle or anything, lucky bot.

Then we began, we matched each other attack to counterattack. We were both pretty much at the same skill level, so then sparring tested more of our endurance. The two of us could go on and on for hours, but today we were interrupted. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Captain Rogers watching from the doorway. Oh my gosh he's watching me spar!

'Focus, Bailey.'

'Elek you know how much I admire this guy. He's a war hero.' I went low to trip him, but Elek jumped. Wait…he got ready to jump before I even went down. "Hey no fair, you're reading my mind." I glared at him as I blocked his leg from colliding with my head.

"You must have multiple options to attack your enemy." Elek sassed.

"Two could play at this game." I dug through his mind and saw every single plan he had and analyzed them. Not too easy when I have to keep his fists and feet from getting a hit on me. He had plans to hit me high and low. Hmmm…he forgot one thing. Wack! My fist made contact with his face, and he went down. He looked up at me with shock while he rubbed his jaw and pain exploded in my jaw too and I rubbed mine.

"Forgot about that didn't you." Elek would've smirked if he could.

I rolled my eyes at him and helped him up. Then I turned to Captain who was standing there observing. "Captain."

"Please call me, Steve." He smiled and walked over to me and Elek. "So what's the story between you two?" I gave him a skeptical look. He put his hands up. "I just want to know my team, and on the files there wasn't much about the two of you."

I looked over at El and he shrugged. I motioned for Steve to take a seat at a small table I just discovered around the corner. "It takes quiet an explanation."

Steve followed us over to the small table and sat down. Man, this guy did so much and lost so much too. I mean, there was Peggy, Bucky, and literally everyone he knew and trusted. I feel bad for him.

"So, it all started when my dad was captured during a weapons demonstration. He was gone for a while, and well, I'm my father's daughter. I started tinkering when I'm nervous, and came up with the idea of having a robot who could think, dream, and well, be human. So that's what I did while he was gone. When dad came back, he was different, but in a good way. He actually cared about where his weapons were going. As he tried to control where his weapons were going, I found out about the Avengers, and I did my research about everyone. Which led me to the Hamatos and I was attacked when I went to go find them in New York City. This encounter made me feel useless because I got the shit beat out of me, so I had them train me in ninjutsu. During my training, one of the brothers, Donatello, came up with the idea to make Elek into a suit so I could still help fight, but leave my dad relieved that I'd be okay." I paused for a moment to see Steve nodding. "Last year two years ago, dad was dying from the reactor in his chest, and at this time I was staying with the Hamatos. So when I got the call, I packed my things and left. I helped dad get better and Elek and I formed this mental bond. He can hear my thoughts, feel my emotions, and react in a split second. If I would be tossed from a building, Elek would be able to located me and save me within a second. The only down part of this whole mental bond is that we can go as far as feeling when the other is hurt."

"As you just saw before." Elek snickered.

"He's my best friend." I smiled.

Steve cracked a smile. "You guys been through a lot together."

"We're inseparable." Just like Steve and Bucky. I couldn't even imagine if I lost Elek. Steve chuckled and mumbled something. "What'd you say?"

"Oh just something my friend and we would say to each other."

"Bucky?" I asked and Steve looked up. "I mean, Sergeant Barnes."

"Yeah, Buck and I had this kind of motto of our friendship." Steve smiled a sad smile.

"What was it?" I asked.

"'I'm with you til the end of the line.'"

"That's a great line." I put my hand on his shoulder. "He was a great man. He seemed like a great friend."

"He was." Steve agreed in almost a monotone voice.

Okay, awkward silence. Change the subject now!

"Was there any contact with the Hamatos?" Elek asked.

"Not that I'm aware of." Steve shook himself out of his little trance. "I will go check for that." He stood and I stood with him. An announcement interrupted our farewell.

"Captain Rogers, Ms. Starks, please come to the top deck." The voice sounded like Agent Hills' voice.

"Let's suit up." Steve looked up at the ceiling where the announcement came on as if he knew we were going to get some action.

Elek suited up and Steve turned around and nodded. It's ninja time.

Soon after, we were loaded onto a plane with Romanoff. They have spotted Loki strolling around Germany, like he was trying to be spotted. Hmm, weird. Elek was next to me as Steve stood by the front looking out the window.

This was going to be so weird for Capt., you know, since the last time he was in Germany, the war was going on. Huh, now another war is on its way, and he has to put a stop to it, again. When will the vacation start for him?
