A visit (open to Dom)

January 6th, 2007 (11:45 pm)

Nick stepped out of the Nexus portal and was immediately hit by a gust of cold air. He shivered against the cold and cursed winter's bite. Italy wasn't exactly warm, but it was hell of a lot warmer than this place.

He had managed to get away from the house for an hour or two. He loved his girls, the three kids and Val, more than words could ever say, but he needed a short break. The walls had started to close in around him and a bit of fresh air was just what he needed. He just wished that air was a little warmer.

His first stop had been Tasha's. Logan wouldn't let him draw another breath if Nick didn't check up on her and the kids once and awhile. Satisfied that they were all fine, Nick stepped into the Nexus and then out again, ending up in a blizzard.

Grumbling, he pounded on the door with a fist. A basket dangled from the other hand.

Dom was woken from what had been a contented doze on the couch near the fireplace by someone pounding on the door. Muttering quietly, she reached for the gun on the coffee table and flipped the TV on to the security channel.

She muttered a little more loudly when she saw who was at the door. Figured.

With a sigh, she got up and walked to the front entry, only to be greeted with a blast of cold air as she opened the door.

"Come in before you freeze something off, Fury."

"Val'll appreciate ya savin' me from frostbite," he grinned as he entered the house. "Thought I'd swing by, say hi an' bring ya some goodies." He held up the picnic basket.

smile

She shook her head as she lead him back towards the living room. "There is this thing called a telephone, Nick. You're lucky the weather is fucking with the security today, or frostbite would be the least of your worries."

In Dom's world, that is, in fact, a "Hello, it's nice to see you."

"Since when do I ever do things the normal way?" he asked as he followed her. "Besides, if I would've given ya warnin' you would've disappeared an' left me out there t' freeze t' death. An' had fun watchin' it."

He didn't wait for an offer for a seat. He set the basket on the coffeetable and collapsed into the closest chair.

innocent

She grinned at him as she sat back down on the couch, tucking her feet under her. "Would I do a thing like that?" Innocent. Totally innocent.

"So, how you doing, Nick? Been awhile."

"Hell yes you would," he grinned. "An' then you'd sell copies to everyone."

"Not bad. Needed t' get outta the house for a bit. How are you holdin' up? Everythin' okay?"

"I would not. Not to everyone.."

"All those girls getting the better of you, huh? I'd probably want out for awhile, too." She shrugs. "Nothing of interest going on. I'm just hanging out here. Me, and a lot of snow. Made Nate take the dog to Providence until this clears up a bit."

"Yer right. Not everyone. Just the ones who would laugh the hardest," he grumbled.

"Felt like the walls were startin' t' close in around me," he admitted. "Needed some fresh air an' a change of scenery, if only for an hour or two."

"Ya look good. Ya look content."

"Know that feeling all too well. Sorry there's not much in the way of scenery. Unless you really like white, I suppose."

She sighed. "This isn't contentment. This is resignation."

"You can always come an' visit. Val would appreciate listenin' t' somethin' other than my grumbling an' there's kids t' chase. Not t' mention Sophia's cookin'."

He shook his head. "Ya never could take a damn compliment."

desperate

She shakes her head. "I'm really not in a visiting mood, Nick. I'm better off sticking around here." She might not like the isolation much, but she does want to keep her privacy.

"Sorry. I just... I dunno. This isn't exactly what I had in mind when I decided I was going to take a bit of a vacation."

Relaxing

"Not sayin' ya have to, just keep it in mind when ya start goin' stir crazy," he told her.

"Unfortunately Fate an' Destiny don't care what people had in mind or planned."

"Look, I ain't here t' lecture ya. Just wanted t' see how yer doing. Making sure yer okay. I even brought a basket of food for ya seein' how we all know about your cookin' abilities."

"Fate and Destiny are going to get a kick in the nuts if I ever get my hands on them, is what."

She runs a hand through her hair. "I'm okay, mostly. Nate checks in on me a lot." She gives him a wry smile. "Everyone seems preoccupied with feeding me these days."

"Well if ya see 'em, give 'em each a kick for me while yer at it," he grinned.

"Yer supposed t' be eatin' more these days an' we're well aware of yer cookin' abilities. Shoot any toasters lately?"

"You bet I will." Okay, so maybe she was a little bitter. She figured she was allowed.

"Yes, yes. I know. The damned doctor keeps harping on it. I'm perfectly capable of making sandwiches and stuff, you realize."

She make a face. "All of Nate's appliances are self-repairing. It's creepy."

Relaxing

"Well if ya ever need a homecooked meal, the door's always open. An' I won't leave ya standin' outside in the cold."

Nick chuckled. "Mebbe I should talk to him about that. Could use things that fix themselves with Val in the house. The woman likes t' shoot things."

"Thanks for the offer, but I think I'm gonna stick with my plan of staying out of sight."

"Oh, sure. Ruin the poor woman's fun. So... what did you bring me?"

"Have yer way," Nick grumbled. Damn stubborn woman.

"Lil' bit 'o everything. Sophia wouldn't let me out the door without food. Pasta, desserts, an' whatnot. Woman makes enough t' feed an army."

"Oh, good. The fridge was getting a little lonely. Now it can have friends."

She leaned her head on one hand. "Thanks, Nick. It is sort of nice to talk to someone who isn't Nate, considering how much I want to kill him and all."

"There's this thing called a telephone," he said throwing her earlier words back at her. "Heard it actually lets ya talk to a person over long distances. These newfanlged doohickeys they invent these days."

Nick nodded. "Gotta look out for each other," he said, being serious for a moment.

*sigh*

She grabs a pillow off the couch and tosses it at his head unerringly. "I meant face to face, you old coot."

"Guess someone's gotta do it. I sure did do a crappy job of looking out for myself."

Posted by: Colonel Nicholas Fury (shield_topdog)
Posted at: January 7th, 2007 07:06 am (UTC)

Nick caught the pillow and threw it right back at her. "Yeah, yeah. You know damn well that if you need t' talk all ya have t' do is call an' I'll be over."

"You hungry? I can fix a plate for ya now."

Dom just grinned as the pillow bounced off the couch. At least the powers were good for something. "You say that now... in a month or two you're not going to want to hear my ranting, trust me."

She shrugged. "Not really, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't eat something."

"I've heard all the pregnancy related rantin' already. Won't be anythin' new. An' it's never as bad as hearin' a president whine."

Nick stood up and grabbed the basket. "Yeah, ya probably should eat somethin'." He headed for the kitchen.

"Oh, I'm sure I could come up with something new." Like how much she didn't want to be doing this at all. But, hey, that wasn't the kind of attitude she was supposed to have, so she mostly kept it to herself. "...Nate told you not to tell anyone else, right?" She really, really hoped he had.

She sat for a moment longer before getting up to follow him. "I keep coming up short in the weight department, so it's eat whether I feel like it or not."
