fic prompt! Darcy/Clint, or Darcy/Steve, fun with Tiger Balm
"How long have you been watching?" Clint asks after he realizes he’s not alone in the range. Foster’s kid, the pretty assistant with the glasses and the curves that defy all attempts at hiding, Darcy, peeks out from behind a partition. They’ve only just convinced that team to come join them at the tower, that they would be safer there than in London or even the tiny towns they work out of in the states.
They’ve mostly been sticking around the labs. Not because they are shy. One look at them and you can tell none of them are shy. But because Stark has lots of shiny toys that have kept them distracted. Still, they’ve been here and there, mostly at breakfast. Darcy has a tendency to for strong coffee and lots of it, and that’s something near and dear to Clint.
"Long enough to be seriously impressed," Darcy answers, and her eyes follow Clint’s body up and down before her eyebrows quirk up high with just a little bit of mocking tease to them. Clint can’t help but respond. It’s a flaw of his, pretty women will always be his undoing, "You were looking a little tired towards the end though." she finishes.
He had overdone it, actually, a few draws too many. But when you get into a flow, you want to see it through. Better to wake up sore than to stop that clarity of mind.
"Maybe a little. Shoulder could use a little work," he shrugs and gives her a dopey smile, waits to see how she reacts.
"I could uh, help with that, if you’d like," and if there’s something better than just a pretty woman, it’s a woman that’s downright forward. No games, no guessing. "I’m not bad with tiger balm and I give a pretty mean massage."
And even if it only ends there, Clint is going to consider it a very good night. He really hopes it doesn’t just end there, and by the way that Darcy is exaggerating her steps, swinging her hips just a step ahead of him, he really doesn’t think it’s going to end with just her hands on his shoulders.
He learns about Darcy on their dates, but he kisses Steve again first. He drove Darcy back down to Culver, to her rinky-dink duplex, and held her close. But right now, she’s still Steve’s girl so he doesn’t kiss her, even though she licks her lips and Bucky knows that’s a signal. So maybe being around Steve so much is rubbing off on him, but it doesn’t seem decent to take that step without talking to Steve first.

I haven’t said anything before now, but I am so happy and proud of you for going to the dentist. In 2009, my husband contracted meningitis and had a stroke due to a dental infection. Root canal is a much better outcome. Feel better soonest!
Oh geez that’s absolutely terrible, and exactly why I went to the dentist — i knew my tooth was infected and that can be very dangerous.
