Fade In…

With the Avengers One damaged, Spoiler unconscious and Wanda injured and exhausted, the Avengers decided not to try to fly all the way to New York but seek a closer friendly port. This means the SHIELD helicarrier Perseus, currently flying over the Strait of Magellan. The carrier infirmary is where Spoiler is going to wake up, patched up as needed by the medical personnel - although the Avengers insisted her mask was to stay on. Nathaniel has been checking on her periodically.

*

Bruising and a concussion. Medical personnel needed her to stay awake once she regained consciousness, and so with Nathaniel playing mother hen, he is alerted the moment she came to. it happened all of a sudden, with a jerk of body and Spoiler pitching herself off the side of the bed. Tense batling waking up in new location out of armor is tense… and now dizzy.

*

"Hold on, girl," says Nathaniel from a corner of the room. "You had a concussion when the factory crashed. You have been unconscious over four hours." He picks up a glass from the stand and passes it to Spoiler. "Drink. Now you are awake, you have to stay awake. What is the last you remember?"

*

Hands cling to the bed as Nathaniel speaks to her and it takes her a few very long seconds to regain her balance and pull herself up to sit on the bed again. What is she wearing? Out of armor, it feels like nothing.

"I need to get to Gotham, " says the blonde, voice unsteady as she reaches out for the glass of water. not that she wants to deink. her stomach is in knots, but she forces a single small sip.

*

"I see," replies Nathaniel, looking amused. "I will try to get you on a Quinjet back to the US. Our aircraft cannot handle supersonic speeds without serious repairs, so it is going to take me almost a full day to bring it back to New York. But first you need, hmm, to be able to stand up, I think. Finish the drink, it has stimulants and painkillers, it is supposed to help."

*

Spoiler frowns lightly, refusing to nod. she drinks a bit more, another sip, lest her stomach revolts.

"Thank you. where’s my suit?" she asks. Was he amused sounding? Steph cant tell. She think he is. She’s not sure.

*

Nathaniel frowns faintly, seeing her obvious confusion. Also, she didn't answer his question. "The costume should be in the closet. How important is for you to get to Gotham? Because you do not seem able to walk to the deck without falling down. It might be better for you to wait until Scarlet Witch can give you a healing boost."

*

"She did a lot," Spoiler replies, eyes sliding toward the closet. Knowing she can't get to the closet right this moment, Spoiler sips again then looks at Nathaniel. "Very." He asked something before… what?

*

Nathaniel nods. "Good. You remember. Temporal amnesia is relatively common in these cases," he asked! "Yes, Wanda is exhausted. We need to plan our tactics and teamwork for next time. We fought like individuals this time. As for now I would suggest you to finish the glass and wait a few minutes for the drugs to work. If you need to talk to someone in Gotham I can get you a secure channel."

*

Temporal ammesia. spoiler frowns, not taking another sip yet. hearing that wanda is exhausted is also concerning along with nathaniel saying they fought as individuals.

"We need to train." spoiler comments. "I've never seen what most of you can do first hand. I can plan off intel I can find but…. I cant plan if I dont know. " spoiler sips again now, a good sign that she’s not too sick to her stomach or vomiting. "no. I don’t need to talk to anyone. I need to get to New York." wait, what?

*

Fine, not telling him what, hrmp. "All right. A Quinjet can fly to New York in about four hours. Assuming you can stand and walk to the hangar. I will arranged one to depart in… say one hour? Probably Wanda will want to go with you. Not sure about Stark, he needed to work on some of his armor systems and if he fixed them I believe his suit is faster than a Quinjet."

*

Still refusing to nod, Spoiler sighs lightly, trying to sound like she'd agreeing to his statements. "An hour sounds fine." she says, sipping again before setting the glass down to limp toward the closet.

*

“I can talk to Stark to see if he has a suitable training space,” muses Nathaniel. “Probably he does, since his company produced weapons and ammunitions. He must have a testing field somewhere in the state.” He has a long trip back home, so he will use it to find out and plan something.

*

"You know hiw to reach me when you have it sorted out." Spoiler says, collecting het uniform and moving slowly to get back into it.
"Thank you… for leaving my mask on," Spoiler adds, pausing as she buckles the pants on over the under armor workout clothes she wears under the outfit. "Really. Thank you."

*

“You are welcome. I know it is important to you. Maybe someday you will let me see those pretty eyes again, hmm?” He heads out so she can change alone. “I will be on the Avenger One. Maybe I can jury-ring the tail wing, and then I will be able to fly at a decent speed. Let me know when you are ready to get back into action and I will talk with Carol about a team training session.”

*

Changing involved just putting the suit ok over the spandex and sports bra, but the privacy was appreciated. She smiles lightly at the complement, the painkiller kicking in and softening the edges of perception.

"Ok." is all she says, the hint of a blush in her words before she turns to finish getting dresses.
