I laughed whole heartedly. The impish grin he was giving me made my heart flutter slightly. I pushed the thoughts out of my mind. He was my best friend, that was it. My protector, not my lover.

"Oh come on, Nya, you and ole cap would make a cute couple." He wiggled his eyes suggestively and turned his gaze to Steve who was deep in thought about 50 feet away from mine and Clint's.

"Shut up! He might hear you!" I gawked at him and playfully wacked his arm.

"Oh come on, you know I just like to tease yeah. After all, poor Capy could use some female company if you know what I mean." He smirked at me in insinuation.

I rolled my eyes but smirked back at him. "And I suppose you'd want to tape it is that it, ya lil' perv?" I ruffled his arm.

He chuckled and pretended to contemplate it. "Nah, I couldn't just sit there and watch. I'm more of in the field type of guy. On the sidelines isn't my cup of tea, if you know what I mean."

"Oh? So what, you want me to tape while you two go at it?" I had to practically fight to keep from bursting into laughter at his stunned expression.

It didn't take him long to recover though, the next moment he was smiling wickedly at me and leaned in closer, putting his arms on the desk to keep his weight balanced.

"Nope, in that case, I was thinking more along the lines of losing the third party." I blinked and opened my mouth to reply when I faintly registered Coulson walking in by the corner of my peripheral vision. My eyes widened in fear, and I reacted on instinct, pushing Clint away from me and back into his seat as I swiveled to face the computer at my desk in time to look occupied just as Coulson entered.

"Barton, Rogers. Office, now." Coulson told then sternly before turning to leave. Steve and Clint looked at each other in confusion before shrugging and standing up to leave.

"Don't wait up for me, darlin'" Clint winked to me joking as he slung his jacket over his shoulder. I rolled my eyes in irritation before I let the corners of my mouth twitch in amusement.

"Alright, hun. Just make sure you bring home the hunk of meat. I'll have the recorder all set up." He smirked wickedly.

Steve looked between us two before giving us a very confused look, though he had learned awhile back that it was better for him to not ask.

I stifled the urge to chuckle at Steve's adorable cluelessness and began to type in my weekly report to my superior.

...

I yawned and stretched out over the large sofa. I dug my feet deep into the soft carpet and wiggled my toes. I loved carpet, it reminded me of my childhood. I only wished I actually had the time and money to get my apartments floor replaced before they had moved. Oh well, I wasn't complainin', stark did have taste, though technically it was Peppers, but still. I shrugged before jumping off the sofa and trodding into the kitchen to find some snacks. I began to pour myself a bowl of cereal.

"Jarvis, when are Agents Barton and Rogers coming home?" I asked and winced at the last noun. It was an honest mistake calling the mansion home, but I suppose it had become one, if not to all of us, then to just me.

I screeched and jumped, knocking my half poured bowl of cereal on the ground as a hand tickled the side of my waist. I narrowed my eyes in actual irritation this time. I didn't have to turn around to know it was Clint.

"Barton!" I growled and whipped around to find him laughing so hard he could barely stand.

I crossed my arms and glared at him, "oh you think this so funny huh?" I seethed in sarcasm.

He only laughed harder at my expression

"Damn, archer." I snickered before getting a brilliant idea. Turning quickly, I grabbed the milk carton and what was left of my cereal bowl. Then I proceeded to pour some milk on and put the cereal bowl upside down on his head.

"Got milk?" I winked at him and walked out of kitchen as I saw Tony walk in and burst out laughing at the skeptical.

...

I just wanted to have a little light hearted fun squabble. This is my original character, let me know if I should continue, or you want a back story, etc. I just think Hawkeye's such a great character and no one really does fics for him:(
