James surveyed the group with a slight smile. They seemed to be getting along fairly well, the ones that were talking, that is. He knew Brando wouldn't have many, if any, problems. Erin was the only variable.
Almost silently, he stood. In the midst of the discussion and laughter, most people probably wouldn't notice him leave until he was already gone. He grabbed the case from where it was leaning against the wall, and slipped quietly out of the room.
He had things he needed to do. Theoretically, he could leave them for a little later. He could probably even leave them for the next day, seeing as it was getting late in the evening. But he needed to get some air. He let out a sigh as he walked down the hall. James couldn't deny that reforming the Avengers was a good idea.
But it wasn't one he was used to. Over the course of about an hour, he had finally told Noel that he existed, briefed the group on what was happening, and overall, been thrown into the world of superheroes. The place where everyone wore a costume and didn't tell people who they were. The place where he was known as the Captain's grand son.
He didn't pay much attention behind him to see if anyone had noticed, or cared, that he'd left.
