Re: nick & hope
"Yes. We all know each other, and there doesn't seem to be the added torture of having to play nice. Schmoozing," he echoed, with a gleam in his eye, "has never been one of my priorities." Reaching down, he took a celery stick in hand but didn't crunch into it. Yet.
"You did good out there," Nick said after a moment. Praise was not something he was used to doling out, but Hope and Scott weren't part of his Avenger initiative, so long ago. They weren't his agents, so he could afford to be a bit kinder to them. "If you ever want a training space, I have one set up. The Guardians use it too, on occasion." If they could even call that fighting . It looked more like Drax tackled Peter while Peter used every swear word in the galaxy. "It's good to have more people to rely on."
