Clint looks down at the birth certificate reading 'Clayton Pietro Maximoff'. He lets out a sigh before he puts it in the safe with the cash he has just acquired. There is a chuckle behind him and the ex-SHIELD agent turns around to see his daughter shaking her head with a smile on her face.
"You know, it's not going to change the more you look at it," Alex says with another chuckle and a smirk aimed at her father.
"I still think Clint would've been a better name," Clint grumbles while trying to suppress a smirk. He walks over to Alex and looks down at Clayton in her arms.
"One of you is enough," Alex replies with a smirk of her own. She hands the six-month old to her dad and turns to fill up two cups of coffee. A sound outside the cabin brings their attention to the door. The two Bartons instantly on high alert.
"Stay behind me," Clint said as he hands Clay back to Alex and pulls out his gun. The gun is trained on the door but before Clint can do anything it opens.
"Is that a way to greet your partner and mother?" Natasha asks with a raised brow at the gun.
"Mom?" Alex asks as she steps out behind Clint who puts his gun back into the waistband of his pants.
"There's my boy," Natasha says with a grin and immediately walks over to grab Clay from Alex.
"Nat what's going on?" Clint asks with a furrowed brow as he studies her closely.
"We need to talk," Natasha says with a look at Clint and Alex.
"I know you won't do it with Clay, Alex," Natasha says to her daughter after she finished explaining the Sokovia Accords. The ex-SHIELD agent turns her gaze to Clint. "But Clint…"
Clint sighs and looks over at his daughter and then his grandson before he shifts it back to Natasha. This whole thing is a mess. The Sokovia Accords are just going to create trouble that, to be honest, with Alex and Clay, Clint isn't sure he should get in the middle of.
"I'm retired Nat," Clint finally replies and earns a sigh from his partner.
"Okay," Nat says with a nod of her head. She stands up with Clay still in her arms and gives him a kiss. "I need to head back."
Alex sighs but takes Clay from her mother nonetheless. Natasha gives her a hug and, with a smile at Clint, leaves the cabin. Alex grimaces and looks over at her father.
"How bad do you think this will get?" she asks him and Clint sighs and looks over at her.
"Bad," Clint replis then claps his hands and turns to look at Alex. "We should go water skiing this weekend."
"With Clay?" Alex asks with a raised eyebrow and a smirk playing on her lips.
"Yeah, he can stay in the boat with whichever one of us isn't skiing at the time," Clint replies with a shrug before he grabs Clay from Alex.
"Okay," Alex agrees with a nod of her head.
"Great. Water skiing," Clint says with a grin and walks to the middle of the room where Clay's toys are strewn about on the floor.
