A shout out to elevators
Characters: Jessica Jones, Pietro Maximoff
Setting: Apartment Loby/Elevator, Hell's Kitchen
Summary: Forced bonding of neighbors
The interview had been...short. Apparently his willingness and prompt arrival was all the hiring manager really cared to know. Damage Control had sites across the city, with more sprouting each day. With no sign of these portals slowing down they needed all the help they could get, and Pietro two hands were good enough for them. He'd be part of clean up and renovation crews, strictly on call until he was past his trial period, but it sounded like easy enough work. And it would put him in a position with potential overlap with the Avengers, and other powered individuals.
So, newly employed, Pietro thought a celebration was in order, and stopped to pick up some rakija for him and Wanda. A taste of home. Things were starting to look up. This country wasn't so bad maybe. He had to run to catch the elevator, whether the woman had tried to close it on him on purpose or not he couldn't tell, but he pushed his floor, and the doors closed behind him.
And then roughly three seconds later the elevator lurched violently and drew to a dead halt.
"Ahh--Jebem ti zivot," he muttered under his breath. "Is broken again? Is third time this week." He tried pushing various buttons to prompt any kind of response from the damned machine.
