Summary (by author): "Thoughts, Coulson?" Fury asked, finger tapping idly on Barton’s file.
“He’s dangerous. He has trust issues that we may not be able to breach, he will not like working with others, he will lie to us about his motivations every chance he gets and, most likely, be successful every time.” Coulson’s gaze drifted back to the empty chair Barton had chosen earlier, boxed in the corner yet protected on as many sides as possible. “It won’t be easy, but if we can win his loyalty he has the potential to be the asset we’re looking for.”
Fury agreed, though neither of them would ever dream that they already had Barton’s loyalty, or that the price it cost was so steep.
