Flash Challenge #1

This is for the first flash challenge of the year.

The prompt was "I found this in an old coat pocket."

I give you a little ditty in the spirit of the prompt.

Title: My Lover is a Pack Rat
Fandom: MCU
Pairing: Clint Barton/Tony Stark
Summary: Clint finds strange and random things in one of his jacket pockets when he was looking for a pair of gloves.

Clint reached into his leather jacket looking for a pair of gloves and ended up pulling out a handful of junk.

"What the hell is this shit?" he asked as he dropped it onto the breakfast bar.

He cautiously poked at it with a finger as he tried to figure out how a screwdriver with multiple bits, a couple of dry wall screws, a book of matches, an arrowhead, an unused condom and ticket stubs from the Central Park Zoo wound up in his jacket pocket.

He was contemplating checking the other jacket pocket when Tony came breezing into the room.

Tony clapped his hands in delight and rushed over to gather up the pile of junk. "I've been looking for most of this stuff all morning," he exclaimed.

"Obviously, shellhead, you forgot you borrowed my jacket last week," Clint reminded him with a good-natured grin.

"Yeah, I did," Tony admitted."Which means I should check the other pocket."

Clint shook his head in barely contained amusement. His lover really was an absent minded professor type. "Have you always been a pack rat?"

"Kinda," Tony quietly replied. "Was the only way I could get things off Howard so I could build the cool things living in my brain. I would have gone crazy sooner than I did if I hadn't been able to do it."

"I get that,"Clint said soothingly. He knew how hard it was for Tony to talk about his father. "Just next time you borrow any outerwear from me, remember to empty the pockets, okay?"

"Yeah," Tony sighed as he pulled more unrelated items out of the other pocket. "I can try."

"That's all I'm asking."

"Can I take my loot and scoot?"

"Go on," Clint said with a chuckle. "I'm going out to build snowmen with Bucky and Steve."

"You have fun with that," Tony quipped as he brushed acquick kiss against Clint's cheek.

"We will," Clint remarked. He playfully slapped Tony's ass to hurry him along. "And you have fun with whatever you will be creating."

"I will," Tony replied with a wicked grin. He stopped at the elevator and turned to look at Clint. "Love you."

"Love you more," Clint immediately responded as he watched Tony enter the elevator when Jarvis opened the doors.

He blew Tony a kiss as the elevator doors closed and went back to looking for a pair of gloves.
