She took a deep breath as Nick called the council.
"You don't mind me chewing them out do you?" Nick laughed.
"I would be more than happy to help," she nodded.
"That recording does," they went silent as the call went through. Steve was sitting to the side, out of the council's view. They all popped up on the screen, one by one.
"Hello idiots," she could hear them all mutter under their breath as she stepped up.
"Elise Carter. It is very pleasant," she held up her hand.
"Save that dribble for someone who doesn't already hate you. What the hell made you think unleashing a nuke on Manhattan was a good idea? Or are you all as insane as I originally thought?" none of them spoke up. "That was what I thought. You idiots almost killed many innocent lives as well as people who were fighting to save this planet. So here is what you are going to do," one of the members quickly spoke up.
"You cannot tell us what," she laughed.
"I'm the main investor in S.H.I.E.L.D so yes I can. Oh and if you ever think about coming after Nick Fury, or me, or any of the Avengers I have two things to tell you first. Number one, they recorded you ordering the nuke, so it is the king of blackmail," the council members groaned.
"And the second thing?" said one of the woman.
"Just an extra warning about thinking you can take on me," she took a deep breath as she focused on the electric current in the room. Using her powers she drew out the current creating sparks of lightning in the room. "I can do much more then you know. Not only do you have to deal with me having the Captain's serum in my system, but that I am half Asgardian as well," the council members all leaned forward at the exact time. "Thor is my half-brother and I swear you ever try to hurt anyone like that again, and I will make it my mission to make all of your lives living hell," she stopped the conversation.
"Nice," said Kick.
"I wasn't too nice to them was I?" they all laughed together.
"The ship is waiting to take you down with the others," her and Steve nodded and walked out together.
"Remind me never to get on your bad side," whispered Steve to her.
"You couldn't," she said and kissed him. The ride down in the plane was quiet, mainly because Loki could not talk. However it was clear to everyone on board that he was only looking at Elise who did her best to ignore him. They moved to a square and Thor and Loki stood on opposite ends of the cube.
"You could come with us if you wish," he said to Elise. "Father would want to meet you, and you would be royalty," she shook her head.
"Thank you but no. I have everything I want," she placed her hand in Steve's. "I have everything I could ever want here," Thor nodded. She moved her eyes as the Tesseract created a blinding light. They all stood there for a few moments. Stark moved across to her. She embraced him in a quick hug. "Thank you Tony," he smiled.
"You know, I probably should remind you I don't really have friends," she couldn't help but laugh as he walked off.
"Are you ready?" said Steve and she nodded.
"Let's get out of here."
