“Never seen you either, ki— Jubilee. The name’s Hawkeye, nice to meet you. So, what are you doing here in NYC? That jacket is so bright and calls for attention.” He stood straight with a slight grin. She was indeed rather flashy but a cute little kid.
She almost twitches, he almost called her a kid. She swore, if someone else underestimated her because of her age, she was going to punch somebody “Nice to meet you, Hawks. My jacket is bright because my powers are bright. Plus I like the color and its fashionable. If anyone has to problem with it, they can fight me about it.” She shrugs, brushing imaginary dirt off her coat, snorting in the process. “I don’t even understand why you are trying to pick on my coat when you are wearing a even more ridiculous get up. My clothing is very practical!” She would pout if she wasn’t as ‘MATURE’ as she was.
He let out a chuckle and smiled. “Well, I guess you can say it’s a uniform. Do you like it?” The popping of the bubblegum was somewhat irritable but he didn’t say anything as it wasn’t that annoying, plus she was young so she didn’t know how to properly act/respect her adults. He was just going to wait for her to finish and thank her for it.
She smiles back a bit, rubbing the back of her head and looking around “I mean I’m not the patriotic type, but it looks good. I mean I wouldn’t wear it to prom or to a party or nothing. But heh, Its pretty snazzy” She lets out a snort looking him over again, curious about him as a person now “Wait, I think I just may have heard of you. Captain USA, right?”
“Now look at m’ here,” he finally opened his eyes which were finally adjusting to not being blind anymore and quickly grabbed her hands as he stood up, pulling her up too. “Yer going to pay for having gone against Captain Jack Sparrow and it’s even worst that y’ called me a stupid, smelly bum.”
He laughed a bit, “yer going to remember this day, yer last day of freedom.” Somewhere deep in his mind he was thinking that maybe he should let her go and have her run aways so he doesn’t have to deal with her again. She seems like she’ll be the cause of a much insufferable journey ahead but he also needed her for her ability of that fireworks. She’d fare pretty well over in Singapore or who knows she’s an exotic… beauty would be pushing it for a brat her age but someone might think she is— the Brits might love her even more.
She tried to snap her fingers, scowling darkly as she looked Jack over. He could not be serious. He was Jack sparrow of all people, and Idiot Genius among men. But even she couldn’t tell if he was serious or not. All she could tell that she was in for something either extremely terrifying, annoying, or down right stupid
“Oh come on Jackie boy. Just let me go and I’ll give you all your booze back. Old friends right.”
She hoped to at least bribe him over with the ‘secret location’ of all his stolen alcohol. It wasn’t even a secret, it was just under her bed back at the compound and she could just pretend like she was going to give it to him and then set his hair on fire, and chuck the booze. That would show him.
“You should also try to be a little LESS creepy, and maybe more people would like you.”
