"Rose what the hell is going on?" Mark asks as Steve and Rose usher Susan and him back to the car and begin taking weapons out of the trunk- and is that Captain America's shield? "I uh, I lied. A lot." Rose says as she grabs at guns. "For starters Steve's not my boyfriend- he's Captain America. And I'm not an accountant- I'll explain it all later just get in the car!" Steve has his shield on one arm, guns placed strategically on his person- as does Rose. Rose glances toward him as she loads one last gun, "Steve do me a favor." "Yeah?"

"I'm not an accountant and I don't want to be one so it doesn't matter anyway. So yea. I fight monsters. And I'm awesome at it." "Obviously you didn't listen to a thing I told you growing up." Mark mutters under his breath. Rose's face darkens in a way Steve's never seen before. "What would you know? Most of the guys you fought weren't aiming to kill- more than that, they were all human.

They are very different." She then leans over, cupping her hands in the space between his ear and her mouth and whispers so her parents don't hear. "Miley's is about breaking up with her ex or something. Eric's is the most romantic song about rough sex you'll ever hear." To his credit, he doesn't blush. To her's, she wasn't trying to make him.
