"Y-yeah… yeah I’m fine…" She said, but let him lead her over to the couch. she sat down and took a deep breath before letting it out. She smiled at him as the light headed feeling went away. "Why thank you. Just wanted to make sure I hadn’t lost it…"

She looked at the device, then back at him and nodded. “Yeah. I think you should take it to the mansion. I’ll put up a piece of plastic around the window and I’ll call the front desk and have them let maintenance know about it.” She said, lifting her hand to stroke his cheek. “I’ll be fine. Besides… I’m sure Dave and Matthew will let you know if something odd happens again…” She said, pointing to the two ants who had found their way onto the coffee table and were currently sniffing around.

"Oh, you still got it alright."  Hank smiled up at Jan, rubbing her knees.  He got up and looked where she was pointing, spotting the two little ants on the coffee table.  "Yes, I’m sure they could find themselves useful.  After all, they’re squatting our apartment and eating our food.  They can at least do us a few favors from time to time."

He laughed lightly and turned his attention back on Jan.  ”I’ll just go get dressed, I’ll be right back.”  He bent down and kissed the top of her head, and went back to the bedroom.  

He came back less than two minutes later, all dressed-up and helmet in hand.  ”It really shouldn’t take me more than twenty minutes.  Here…”  He handed her her Avengers ID card.  ”…  so we can stay in constant contact.  I know I might be a bit paranoid, but it never hurts to be extra careful.”

He gave her a kiss and went to the living room window after having picked up the Hydra device.  Might as well take advantage of that hole.  ”Just leave me a little space to get back in if you cover up that hole.”  He winked at her and put his helmet on, shrinking immediately while calling out his ride.  A winged ant came in by the broken window and he jumped on its back.  He made a few loops around Jan and quickly exited the apartment, the shrunken device tucked under is arm. 

Davey-Dude, that’s sooooo unfair…!

Yeah, man, he should have taken her with him…

No, he should have taken US with him!  How come we NEVER get to go on missions??

Maybe because we don’t have wings…?  

Oh…  good point…’

"Yeah. I guess so… but given the context of things…" She said, shrugging. They were probably being silly about it, but still. One never knew with Hydra.

"I’d like to…" Actually, she wanted an excuse to test out her stings. She hadn’t used them since the Hydra tried kidnapping her. She quickly began calculating how much energy she should use. She had become much better at figuring that out. Normally she didn’t have to worry about it because she had loads of energy to spare. But with Ollie, she had to be careful.

She quickly zapped the thing a second time, making it spark and she jumped back behind Hank a little in case it was trying to act up, but it stayed dead. She looked at Hank and smiled. “There. I’m sure it’s dead now.” Maybe she had used a little more force than necessary and leaned against Hank slightly.

Hank had a small smile.  He had the feeling Jan was just looking for an excuse to zap something, and he couldn’t really blame her for it.  She had to sacrifice flying momentarily in order to have Ollie, and he could understand that she was missing being able to use her powers.

He chuckled a bit as Jan went to hide behind him, but it wasn’t really necessary.  The device remained completely dead.  He felt her lean against him and turned around.  ”You’re okay, hon?  Here, sit down a bit…”

He slid one arm around her waist and guided her to the couch, on which he helped her sit.  He crouched in front of her and rubbed her thighs lightly.  ”Well… you still have it in you, that’s for sure.”  He chuckled again.  ”I think that thing is probably fried for good now.”

He looked over at the device on the floor, then at the window.  ”I still think it would be more prudent to take it to the mansion…  do yo think you can do something about the window while I do that?”  The odds of having Hydra send another probe were more than slim at this point.  ”It really won’t take me long, and I swear I’ll be back as soon as it’s secured.”

Still, he was a bit hesitant about leaving Jan alone.  Maybe it would be best if she came along with him, but then he couldn’t fly there, which would be a lot faster for him, as well as giving him the advantage of getting in and out unnoticed.

"Should I give it another zap? Just for good measure?" She asked, looking it over. It didn’t look like it was on or even doing anything. The zap Hank had given it earlier obviously had short circuited it. But still, if it was Hydra made she didn’t trust it.

"Well, it’s already here. So ‘not taking it home’ isn’t an option…" She said, giving him a look that said he needed to watch what he said. "But taking it to the mansion would be good… provided you make sure it’s completely dead… which is why I suggest letting me zap it again…" She stated, holding up her hand and wiggling her fingers.  

"Taking it home…"  Hank made invisible quotations mark in the air.  "…  could mean sending it back to Hydra, you know."  He shook his head, thinking they were getting a bit paranoid with all this.  

He looked at Jan, one eyebrow raised.  ”I really think it’s dead, but if you want to give it another try, just to be on the safe side…  cause I can’t give it another shot.”  He raised his hand at eye level and tried to work up more bio-energy, but the only thing he was able to get was feeble sparks around his fingers.  

"But are you sure you’re up to it?"  She had been able to do it before, but it had left her drained and exhausted, and he sure didn’t want her to feel bad afterwards.  She’d probably have to sit down and eat or drink something sugary after.  "I think you’re right…  it’s more prudent to make sure it’s really dead."

He went and put the thing back on the floor, and came back by Jan’s side.  ”Give it all you can, honey.”

"Probably… she was always rather thorough… if I remember what Cap had said about her" She said, shrugging. She blinked a little. "How would we do that? Just video ourselves destroying the ‘notes’?" She asked, looking at it.

"Are you sure they won’t think it’s a fake? That they won’t question it?" She asked, looking back to him. How would that work? Would it be more convincing if Jan destroyed the notes, or if Hank did? Would they even be able to do it convincingly?

Hank looked over at Jan.  ”I’m not sure yet…  ”  He turned the object around once again in his hands.  ”I’m not even sure it’s actually a good idea to keep this thing around.”  He really didn’t want to put Jan or Oliver in danger, but still having this probe in their possession gave them an advantage.  Of what sort, Hank wasn’t sure yet, but there has to be something they could do with it.

"Maybe I should go secure it properly at the mansion for the moment.  Just in case.  There’s no way I could work on it here anyway, and I definitely won’t be taking it home."  Where the notes are hidden…  he added mentally.

He thought it was completely safe to talk around that thing, but a little extra-precaution couldn’t hurt.  He realized they had started talking about faking data, but honestly, with the discharge Hank had given it, there was no way anything could still be working on that thing, including any kind of audio recording or transmission.

Jan smiled back, and looked at the device when he did. “Looking for daddy’s notes?” She asked, looking at him. She followed him over to the device and looked at it as he picked it up. She was still worried about Hank, but was reassured when he mentioned why he had felt dizzy. 

"I dunno. Open it up and look at it? Toss it back out the window?" She looked over to the window and sighed. "We’ll have to put some plastic over that until the maintenance guy comes."

Hank nodded.  ”Most probably looking for the notes.  I thought I had left Viper thinking that those notes were somewhere in a lab, but maybe she didn’t want to take any chances.”

He turned the device over in all directions.  ’Open it up and look at it...’  Jan had said.  That gave him an idea.

"What if…  what if we could feed it false data?  Make Hydra believe that the notes were destroyed…  or worthless?"

Tampering with the data that probe collected shouldn’t be that hard, but making sure it looked authentic was another matter.  He’d first have to determine that there were no live stream first, otherwise his plan wouldn’t work.

"It’s okay…  I’m okay, don’t worry…"  Hank gave Jan a small smile and patted her back gently.  Really, he’d have to train more if he wanted to keep using those bio-electric stings.  Although he didn’t really want to, since they belonged to a part of his life associated with a few bad memories.

He looked over at the device laying on the floor.  ”It probably was some sort of self-defense mechanism.  It looks more like some kind of probe than an offensive device.”  He managed to get back up, with Jan’s help.  ”I think I fried its power source.  Or at least I hope so…”

He went over to the device and took it with a lot of precaution.  It didn’t make any sound indicating there was still power in it, but still Hank’s first thought was to toss it back out the window, just in case.  

He turned around to Jan to see the worry on her face.  ”I’m fine, really.  I’m just not used to zapping things around anymore.”  He turned his attention back to the device.  ”So…  what should we do with it?”
