After Clint writes his notes but before he comes back from the bar, he grabs some bread, eggs, and maple syrup, because when a man promises French toast he's sure as hell gotta deliver.

There's no noise from the bedroom, and the clock says it's still the same time he left, so Clint grabs a sheet of note paper and writes a third note. Knowing Natasha has something on her is going to calm his nerves a bit.

This letter takes a lot longer to make than the other ones, because Clint has no idea what jobs Natasha is going to take in the near future or who he should pretend to be for the letter. He edits, and re-edits, several times in his head before settling on what he finally writes down:

 

Sweetheart,

Did you find the restaurant? (It's the one where you can see all the stars outside the window.) Because if you did, read on...

I first came here awhile ago, and I thought of you. The show is beautiful, and even the patrons have interesting stories to tell.

I never saw any trouble while I was there, but the security team wears silver badges if you need them. They should all speak English.

I left something for you at the bar, under my full first name. Go open it, and buy yourself a drink on me. I'll be there as soon as I can.

Waiting to see you,

C.
 



Clint narrows his eyes at it, scanning it back over. Yeah, he's pretty sure that's soppy enough. Romance has never been his strong suit. He folds it and unfolds it a couple dozen times to give it a worn look, while listening to the early morning news, then sticks a salt shaker on it to weigh it down.

He starts work on breakfast, once he hears the shower start up. The only thing worse than no french toast is cold french toast.
