He tightened his arms and dragged the close body even closer, “I thought you had a meeting?” “I made them reschedule.” Magnus practically purred. “You were still in bed.

Steve was already dressed and sitting at the edge of the bed. “Right, you’ve got that stuff…with the thing.” His sentinel snorted with amusement. “Right, the stuff. At SHIELD, remember? I’m going to start training with their…
