Alex stares down at the object in her hand. Forcing a swallow and taking a deep breath Alex runs a hand through her hair. A knock on the door has Alex turning her head towards it. Natasha's voice calling her name sounds through the closed door. Alex stands up and opens the bathroom door and her wide eyes meet Natasha's curious ones.
"What's wrong?" Natasha asks and takes a step forward. Her eyes drift down to the object in her daughter's hand. Natasha's eyes widen and she looks up and meets Alex's gaze. "Alex?"
"It's positive," Alex says and takes a stuttering breath.
"Is Pietro the father?" Natasha asks and Alex nods her head. Natasha steps over to her and pulls Alex in for a hug. Alex hugs her back and clings to her.
"I don't know if I can do this by myself," Alex whispers into her mother's shoulder.
"You won't," Clint's voice sounds and Alex's eyes widen when she sees her dad appear around the corner.
"Dad?" Alex asks, not expecting the calmness from him.
"I've been meaning to retire," Clint says with a smile and a shrug of his shoulder.
"What about the Avengers?" Alex asks as she pulls away from Natasha and looks at Clint.
"Nat'll stay with them," Clint says after sharing a look with Natasha and getting a nod from her. Natasha looks at Alex and nods her head in agreement.
"Who'll be her back up then?" Alex asks with a glance at both her parents.
"First of all, I'm not back up…" Clint says with a scowl. Alex smirks at her mother who rolls her eyes.
"I'm sure Johnny'll be up for the challenge," Natasha says and gives Alex a smile. Alex returns it and gives both her parents a hug.
"Not really sure how I feel about Pietro being the father though," Clint grumbles out with a scowl on his face. Alex pulls away and shares a mischievous look with her mother.
"Come on dad. You didn't see that coming?"
