Hope tried to imagine the look on Scott's face if she told him she was working for Tony Stark - it wouldn't be a pleased look, that was for sure. But she was still a little bitter about how he just ran off to assist 'Team Cap' without considering how it might affect the people close to him. And look what happened, they all basically had to go into hiding. On the run. Because of the fight between Cap and Iron Man, because of the Accords. It was something Hope wasn't involved in, so she couldn't be expected to pick sides now.
Besides, Scott wasn't here. It felt a bit like an icy trickle down her back, realizing that, but it was unfortunately true. So while he wouldn't be pleased (and Hank really wouldn't either, for that matter - but his beef was with Howard Stark anyway; old SHIELD politics that she also wasn't involved in), hopefully he would understand later.
"Thanks," she said, offering Stephen a smile. For sharing his experiences involving the Quantum Realm and the recommendations. "I'll look around, see what I can find. And thanks for the welcome package too."
