He’s too young. He’s too young and Coulson should know better. He’s too young, Coulson should know better and they’re co-workers. He’s too young—Coulson could do this all day, really. He could just lie there in bed, with one arm tucked behind his head and the sheets bunched around his waist, staring up at the ceiling and counting all the reasons why dating Clint Barton is a bad idea.None of it’s going to change the fact that the kid in question — nineteen years old, Iowa corn-fed, former carny and the best marksman Coulson’s ever seen outside the military — is lying on his stomach beside Coulson, the sheets just barely covering the swell of his perfect ass. One arm’s tucked against his stomach, the other hugged around his pillow, and his face is relaxed and so fucking youthful, it’s killing Coulson.There’s a nearly thirty year difference between them, and that should be Coulson’s main motivation for ending this…whatever it is between them.Later, when they’re both awake and dressed and Clint is standing by the window, peering out between the blinds at the street below, Coulson catches himself staring. Clint’s cut his hair since joining SHIELD — their dress code is a lot stricter than the carnival’s, and while the long locks of hair framing his face had been quite attractive, they weren’t regulation — and Coulson thinks the shorter hair suits him.He walks over, holding out a mug of steaming hot coffee, and Clint turns to him, his face lighting up with a grin as he takes the mug. The little flip of his stomach when he sees that smile tells Coulson all he needs to know. Right, wrong, it doesn’t matter; he’s hooked.
