Can we trust her?

By AmyOswin

Humor / Action

Chapter 1

She woke up in the middle of the night; her head was killing her again. After trying and failing to fall asleep, she got up from her bed and decided to go for water.

Everyone seemed to be sleeping; well it was 2:30 am so she couldn’t blame them. When she finally arrived to the kitchen she opened the drawer beneath the sink and pulled out a bottle of water, Wanda hid them there because Sam would drink 5 bottles per day, leaving her with none to drink when she was thirsty, unless she got to the kitchen first but that never worked. She opened the bottle and took a zip; the liquid went down her throat refreshing her mouth.

Wanda started walking to her bedroom when she heard a noise coming from the living room, it sounded like a sigh or maybe a cough; it was probably one of her teammates but she went to check anyways, not being sure if she was investigating or just wanted to find someone she could speak to.

Sitting on a couch with her eyes closed, Natasha tried to relax, the spy had heard that someone else was coming two minutes ago but pretended to not notice until Wanda was five feet away.

“Can’t sleep?” Wanda asked her

Natasha opened her eyes “Not really, you?”

She shook her head and took a sit next to the red head “So what are you doing?”

“Trying to get tired again”

The Scarlet witch sighed “Good luck with that” she offered her friend the bottle of water which she took 

“Why do you have sleeping problems? Aren’t you too young for that?” She asked her after taking a zip from the bottle

Wanda frowned “Why does everybody treat me like a child? I’m not that young! And trust me I have had sleeping problems since I was just a kid”

Romanoff chuckled “Sorry big girl” and to change the subject she asked “You have sleeping problems because of your powers?”

The sokovian nodded “The headaches got even worse after they implemented the mind reading”

Natasha frowned in confusion “You had powers before you were experimented with?”

“Yes, I was born with telekinesis, they implemented the mind reading and the other stuff” she explained

Natasha almost threw the bottle “You mean you were born with powers?! How is that even possible?”

Wanda laughed and explained “My biological father, not the one in Sokovia, was born as a mutant; he had ‘powers’ too, although I’m not sure of what he can do”

“You were adopted then?”

She nodded “I met my real father when Pietro and I were twelve; he tried to reclute us in his army, obviously Pietro told him to piss off and we enlisted ourselves instead for the experiments knowing that we would survive the procedures because of our ‘mutant’ gene”

“So you are a mutant?” Natasha asked her mockingly

Wanda’s eyes twitched “I don’t like that term but yes, technically I am” then she looked straight into her friend’s eyes “Natasha, I trust you so please don’t mention this to anyone”

“Of course I won’t, I promise” she assured her, then handed her the bottle. “I’m going to sleep now, see you tomorrow” and they both went to their respective bedrooms.

After Wanda had joined the Avengers it took them a while to trust her so she had to double her efforts to make everyone sure she was on their side. Clint and Steve assured everyone else that they could trust her, but she knew that if she wanted everyone to know she was on their side she had to make Natasha trust her. The ex- Russian assassin spy knew that Clint wouldn’t support someone that wasn’t changed; she remembered how hard was it for her to adapt to SHIELD and stop being treated like a bomb that could explode anytime so when she noticed that Wanda had begun to try being her friend  she put aside all of her spy rules and decided to trust the Maximoff kid, it was funny because she reminded her of herself: insecure, scared and that feeling that she didn’t belong anywhere, besides it was nice to have another girl in the team, it was beginning to be uncomfortable talking to Steve about Bruce.

The avenger’s facility had a special part for them to live, like a house; they all had spacious bedrooms that looked like a small apartments and a living room, a kitchen and even a backyard outside!  Everyone had a bedroom in case they were on a mission but currently only Steve, Sam, Natasha, Vision and Wanda lived there.

The next morning was quite normal, Vision was the first one up and he sat on the table reading a newspaper, Steve was making coffee and toast while watching the a football game from the TV on the living room while Natasha criticized his coffee. Wanda entered the room and sat next to Vision rubbing her temples and closing her eyes.

“Are you alright?” Vision asked her putting down his newspaper

She nodded and opened her eyes to look at him “Yes, although I could use an aspirin”

Steve looked away from the TV “That works on you?”

Wanda shrugged “Define work. I’ll try anything that will make the pain stop”

“Have you tried drinking coconut water?” Vision asked her

They all stared at him “It helps the headache to stop” he explained

“I’ll ask Mariah for some” Natasha told them taking out her phone and texting.

Steve shrugged, he wasn’t sure why would a professional  agent would agree to bring them food, but he wasn’t going to argue with Romanoff.

“Thanks” Wanda said

Then Sam walked in still in his pajamas

“Good morning sunshine” Nat welcomed him

Sam sighed “I’m still sleeping so I’m not going to take that comment into account”

Rogers laughed.

Wanda was about to say something when she heard a loud piercing sound, she looked around to see if anyone else had heard it but they all seemed to not have.

“Guys?” she asked

They all looked at her

“Are you okay?” Sam asked concerned, they all looked at her as if she had something on her face.

She tried to say something else but then everything went black.
