He took out two beers and gave one to Coulson. He simply grabbed the cap on his and popped it off before taking a sip. It was strange to see Coulson but it was also great to see him. He hadn’t gotten to know the man all too well before Loki happened. So Steve was happy to have a new chance to get to know the man.
“Not bad. Found more of your collection,” Steve chuckled and smiled before taking another swig of the beer, “How about you? Looking pretty spry for a guy that was confirmed dead.” It was a joke, and a light hearted one at that.
He sat on one of the stools at the nice kitchen bar like table and just watched Coulson as he moved around. If anything Steve had kept the penthouse clean. Pretty spotless except for a laundry basket in the back which he was going to take care of before Coulson showed up.
Taking the beer, Coulson nodded his gratitude before opening it and taking a small gulp. While he’d been gone, he’d been on a mission and he never drank on missions so to taste beer again was delightful and as a result a content sigh escaped him.
Coulson’s smile turned into a bashful one. His collection was so extensive so it was no surprise Steve had found more but at the same time it was a little embarrassing to have the man he idolised find the collection - that had one more than one occasion been referred to as a shrine by Coulson’s colleagues. “I’ve been good, kind of missed home though,” he confessed.
“How’s the Avengers Initiative going? Still strong?” He enquired, he hoped his feigned death hadn’t been for nothing and they hadn’t disbanned since Loki’s attempted take over. “Any new kids on the team?”
Steve nodded as he took another sip of his beer. He doesn’t get drunk but the taste is still refreshing. “The Initiative is still strong. Though we went our separate ways we’re still in contact in case there’s a problem that we all would have to face together. Heck, even if it was a personal problem that couldn’t be taken care of alone. Surprisingly enough Bruce gave us a phone number to call him on.”
Steve chuckled, “There are some new additions to the Initiative. Spider-Man, Ms. Bishop or Hawkingbird, I heard there was someone else known by the codename Finesse. Dr. Hank Pym has also joined up with us as well as Ms. Van Dyne. Agent Danvers is now on the Avengers team, Tony’s friend Rhodes, and someone who calls himself Deadpool. Well on the last one I heard they were trying to get him to join. We’ll have to see about that one. I’ve been… Away from the team for a little while now, almost a month since I’ve seen any of them. I just read the rosters and who’s who and the reports. For a little bit there I felt like I was hindering the team.” He frowned just slightly and then sipped some more of his beer and set the bottle down on the table.
