"Well," Aaron said, preferring to stand. "I realize now that this might seem childish in more than a few ways, but I'd actually like to discuss something I've had on my mind for the past few months. I've been fighting my fair share of rogue metahumans, crazed robots, aliens, and monsters for the better part of a year now. I'm just an amateur compared to someone like you,"
He pulled on his left earlobe - a nervous habit of his, reserved only for the most powerful of his anxiety attacks.
"I was wondering if it would be in any way possible for us to collaborate and establish a foundation for resolving future conflicts more effectively." He ended quickly, not wanting to waste Mr. Stark's time.
He mentally kicked himself. This was stupid. Someone like Stark accepting such a childish request? Aaron should never have requested this meeting. It wasn't even worth asking.
