With the island being all gross and weird, and with everything Kitty had been through recently, Clint had jumped at the chance to get out of town, and was using work as an excuse. Specifically, he was checking up on one of the safehouses he had through SHIELD that just so happened to be in a warm state within walking distance of a beach. He'd learned early on that hiding out didn't always have to suck.

There'd been some cobwebs and dust in the place when he and Kitty first arrived, but the electricity and water worked without a hitch, and that was all Clint could ask for. Now, he was relaxing in a chair in the sand, watching Lucky and Rook approach the water while he waited for Kitty to come down from the house. There were definitely worse ways to spend a few days, that was for sure.

[For the ladyfriend!]

Kitty came out of the house with a couple towels and drinks for her and Clint, one of which she offered him when she got to him.

"If the dogs start playing in the water, I might die of cute," she said. "Just warning you."

"Paperwork? You romantic," she said, taking a seat. "Obviously the ocean is playing with them."

"This was the best idea. Why have we not been coming here all the time?"

So that would be a yes.

"Right back atcha," Kitty smiled, reaching for his hand. "And not just because I get you all to myself with no responsibilities to get in the way. ...Though that is most of the reason."

"I hold out hope that someday it'll calm down," Kitty told him. "I mean, that day might be when I'm too old and creaky to put on spandex anymore, but still."

"I really hope so. A normal life would be nice," Kitty said wistfully. "We could go on vacation all the time and not come back to any crises. We could raise the dogs without drama..."

Aww, she still liked hearing things like "when."

"I think so," she said, but did give it some thought. "I kind of figure someone or another would drag me into something once in a while to give me my adventure fix, but normal's been my goal for a long time. I'd love to not have to worry about all the stuff I have to worry about. What about you? Think you could settle down like that?"

"That doesn't sound bad. Though I'm definitely imagining a lot of 'No, you saved the world last time, I'll handle it this time and you make sure Lexi gets to school,'" Kitty admitted.

"It probably depends on where we end up living by then," Kitty mused. "If we're in a city, no way is she going off by herself until high school. Someplace like Westchester or a suburb, she could probably walk by herself or with friends and it'd be fine. Or we just make Logan her bodyguard."

"You'd research the safety of walking for our potential future children?" Kitty smiled. "You're so cute."

"Start her with self-defense classes early," Kitty said. "Again, Logan's good for that. She'd be the biggest badass on the block."

"You have," she agreed. "But she seems to be an only child and she should be able to be around kids her own age. I had problems with that growing up and it made things really rough. She should have it better."

"Yup. And I think that's realistic," Kitty said, thinking about it. "We're in a pretty good place, I think, and she's not even happening yet."

"See, and now's the point where I die of cute," Kitty said, looking over at the dogs. "He is gonna figure out real quick this isn't gonna work."

Or not, because dogs would actually chase their own tails, but she gave him credit.

"You can't say they're not entertaining," Kitty said. "They're really giving the ocean a talking to."

"This was such a good idea the next time things are terrible I might ask which safehouse is next on your list," Kitty teased, leaning against him.

"Middle of nowhere doesn't sound terrible. No heat or electricity is only acceptable if you're camping or in Skyrim," Kitty said. "Or in Fandom when it decides to knock out the power in the winter."

"Next you're gonna tell me we have to figure out ways to keep ourselves occupied," Kitty said, grinning at him
